Why Breakfast is Making You Fat

Why Breakfast is Making You Fat

Want to shed fat? Stop eating breakfast. Seriously. Tomorrow. Stop eating breakfast.

Here’s why…

Unless you allow your body to go into a fasted state, you will continue to spin your wheels burning glycogen and leaving your fat right where it is.

If you’ve been eating clean, exercising insanely and following all of the “rules” but are still holding onto fat around the midsection, feeling low on energy and hitting a wall of exhaustion mid-afternoon everyday...then it’s time to switch things up.

Women come to me all the time, struggling with the effects of suboptimal thyroid functioning due to undereating and overexercising. They are frustrated and tired, and not seeing results. This is why the FASTer Way is so revolutionary. It helps women break past their plateaus to see incredible, sustainable results.

Skipping breakfast is just one small component to hopping off of the 6 mini-meal per day roller coaster of frustration.

In order to see real results that go far beyond the scale, you’ve got to do a few simple things.

Eat the right macros, at the right time, for the right reasons.

The FASTer Way to Fat Loss is all about turning your body into a natural fat burner. To effectively burn fat, you’ve got to eat enough of the right things, at the right times in relationship to your workouts. Most women eat far too many carbs, and not nearly enough proteins and fats. This means that their body effectively burns sugar - from carbs, but rarely reaches into its fat stores. During the FASTer Way my clients learn how to eat enough of the right macronutrients, as well as how to effectively use carbs for maximum fat loss. This takes some practice, but once clients learn how to track and cycle effectively, they find this to be one of the simplest, most flexible ways to live. They no longer feel deprived, but continue to see fat loss results. In addition, they are maximizing their non-scale victories as well: better sleep, more energy, feeling in control of their food choices and feeling less discomfort after eating.

Intermittent Fasting puts the body into a fasted state. During the FASTer Way we put our bodies into a fasted state daily, which has significant health benefits along with incredible fat burning benefits. I wrote a FREE guide to help you better understand why we do this, and how to get started doing this. Grab that here!

Learning to time nutrients properly, and allowing the body to heal itself while in a fasted state is how my clients see such incredible results.

Lift heavy to develop lean calorie burning muscle.

Many women are scared of the weight room. They think they are going to get too bulky, or are intimidated by the bro science and grunting that dominates most gyms. However, if you truly want to increase your metabolism, you have to build lean muscle. Your metabolism is directly related to the amount of lean muscle you have. There simply is no more effective way to build lean muscle than to lift weights. When we pair lifting with counting macros and carb cycling the results are incredible. You help to reset and increase your body’s metabolic rate, so that you burn calories long after your workouts are complete.

In addition, adding High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) and metabolic conditioning into a workout regimen and food cycle ups fat burning by depleting glycogen, so your body has no choice but to reach into its fat stores.

Maintaining a positive mindset.

One of the key factors to lasting weight loss success is maintaining the proper mindset. If you can maintain a progress over perfection, positive, open mind, then you are far more likely to see results. If you are skeptical and closed off to trying new things, the FASTer Way isn’t for you; and, you will probably not see results in any other program either!

Allowing your body to rest.

It is incredibly important that you are getting enough sleep for your body to restore itself each night. In addition, we working out intensely, 7 days a week, will keep your cortisol levels elevated causing you to actually store fat. This is why it is so important to take a couple of days off, or do some light, restorative exercise like walking.

Skipping breakfast is one key to taking that weight off, but it is only one small component of an overall healthy lifestyle. The thing that so many clients love about the FASTer Way to Fat Loss is that it lays everything out simply. You won’t feel deprived and miserable. You won’t be a slave to tiny little containers stuffed with food, or hour long workouts every single day. You won’t have to spend hours researching how to put all of these things together. I’ve already done it for you and KNOW that it works.

Thousands of women from all walks of life have truly changed their lives as a result of the FASTer Way to Fat Loss.

You could keep spinning your wheels, feeling exhausted and not seeing results.

Or, you could sign up for the last round of the FASTer Way this year and start burning fat while everyone else is putting it on! You’ve got a decision to make.

You can do the things you’ve always done and get the same results, or you can do something different, and get different results. The power to is in your hands friend!

This will be the last round I run this year and before my maternity leave. Do NOT miss out on changing your life in this huge way? Spots are limited and filling up fast. Grab one of the last by clicking the button below.

When to Adjust Your Macros

1 Comment

When to Adjust Your Macros

If you’ve been tracking macros for a while, then you need to be aware of the fact that at some point, you will have to change your macro goals.

Typically when women come through my FASTer Way to Fat Loss program they see incredible results almost immediately. During the program we are in essence shocking the body so that your metabolic rate speeds up, your thyroid function improves and your symptoms of adrenal fatigue fade away. As a result, the pounds melt off and new lifelong habits are formed: ensuring a healthy, fit lifestyle remains at the completion of the program.

However, after a while you may find yourself at a plateau. At that point, simple changes ca make a huge difference, but it will likely be imperative adjustments be made to macros, for continued results or maintenance. Typically this will call for an increase in overall macros, but there are a few instances in which one or two macros may be decreased while another is being increased.

Before you jump into making a switch, ask yourself the following questions:

Have your measurements changed or does your clothing fit better in the last two weeks?

If you  haven’t seen anything budge for at least two weeks, then it may be time to switch things up. A two week window is long enough to see results, even if they are small. If you are seeing results, big or small, don’t make any changes just yet. Keep going with your current macros and be patient.  

Have you been getting consistent, quality sleep?

I know firsthand that ample amounts of quality sleep are hard to come by.  But you truly cannot see results in terms of getting leaner without proper sleep; it is as important as diet and exercise. If you haven’t been getting enough sleep, then start there - 7 to 8 hours is recommended. If you have been getting lots of quality sleep, then an adjustment to macros may be in order.

Are you stressed, feeling overtrained or not caring for yourself?

If your stress levels are too high and you are going 120mph without any breaks or enough rest then you will not be able to shed those last few pounds of unwanted fat. Life happens and stress cannot be avoided completely. However, exercise, sleep and proper nutrition can decrease the negative impact of stress. If you aren’t feeling particularly stressed then adjusting those macros will probably be the key. If you are overly stressed and working to hard, then start there. Do what you can to minimize the causes of your stress, or to better cope with stress in your life.

Are you approaching your period?

Bloating and discomfort are obviously quite common prior to your period. If you are just about to start your period, don’t adjust your macros. Wait it out until just after your period to see how things are. Then, if you are still not seeing results, consider making a macro adjustment.

Are you properly hydrated?

If you aren’t giving your body enough water, then your body can’t function optimally. If you aren’t hydrated well, you will not see results. Drinking water is not an option for health and weight loss, it is truly a necessity. If you have been drinking tons of of water, and are still having issues then consider looking at your macros. If you know you haven’t been drinking enough water, then hydrate before making any changes.

Have you been indulging in food and drink that is high sugar, high carb, high in salt or alcoholic?

If you have been indulging, then don’t switch up your macros just yet. If you know you have been taking your high carb days a little more seriously than your low carb days, then fix that before adjusting your macros. If you’ve been hitting your macros with foods that aren’t quite whole and nutritious then fill those macros in with whole, nutrient dense foods. As with everything else, if you are keeping things tight and clean but still not getting results, then let’s look at changing those macros.  

Once you’ve gone through these questions and are confident that none of these things are contributing factors to your current plateau then it is time to change macros.

  • If you wake up hungry every day, barely able to make it through your morning fasting window -after your initial 6 weeks- then try bumping up your macros 5% across the board.
  • If you close out your feeding window famished every day, try bumping up your macros overall 5%.
  • If you end your feeding window so full you can barely move, then you may need to adjust some macros without bumping them up over all. Consider lowering carbs 5% and upping protein 5%.
  • If you’d like to get a little leaner without losing any type of body mass or weight, then keep your overall macros the same (or bump them up a bit) and lower carbs while increasing protein and fat. I would always start with 5% and then adjust from there.

Figuring out the right macro ratios once you’ve gone through your initial program can be tricky. You need to learn to listen to your body and eat intuitively. Take your time making adjustments and give them time to work. Don’t make changes to your macros every week. Stick with your changes for at least two weeks to see the overall effects and then adjust from there.

If you’ve gone through the FASTer Way to Fat Loss than all of this will make a lot of sense to you. If that’s you, then there are a couple of next steps for you to move forward.

1-Join the FASTer Way to Fat Loss VIP program. This program is currently open, but if you go through the FASTer Way, then you will be notified as soon as registration opens.

An Honest Opinion of a Ketogenic Diet

An Honest Opinion of a Ketogenic Diet

Perhaps you’ve heard the buzz surrounding the Ketogenic diet and it’s piqued your interest.

If so, you are not alone!

Over the last year this approach to nutrition has gained a significant amount of momentum among those in the health and wellness industry. While many have strong opinions on the matter, my goal here is to provide you with an honest opinion of the ketogenic diet, while highlighting both the pros and cons to this lifestyle.

As someone committed to helping my clients live the healthiest, happiest version of their lives, I do my best to stay up to date on all of the cutting edge strategies and research coming out of the industry. I have taken all of that into account as I have formulated my opinion on the subject, and want to give you a super simple overview of the good and the bad when it comes to keto living.  

What is a ketogenic diet?

A ketogenic diet is a low carb - high fat - moderate protein diet. The idea behind a ketogenic diet is to put your body into a state of ketosis.

Ketosis is the process by which your body survives when your food intake is not sufficient for your body’s energy needs. While in ketosis, our body produces ketones and uses them for fuel. This occurs when fats are broken down in the liver. Ideally, when in ketosis, your body would use fat as its main energy source since carbs are unavailable. Typically, those following a ketogenic lifestyle will consume fewer than 30 grams of net carbs every day. They eat a moderate amount of protein, and a high percentage of healthy fats, providing their bodies with a sufficient amount of fat to burn, and helping to improve metabolism and fat burning in the body.

When done poorly…

Unfortunately, with all the talk of a ketogenic lifestyle many have attempted to make this work on their own. What often happens when people try this without guidance is they either hit a weight loss plateau or they end up gaining weight. In addition, it is entirely possible to mess with your hormones a good bit using this type of nutritional approach, and ketogenic living can leave you feeling incredibly depleted if not done properly. Plus, you are significantly limiting your carbs, so if you love things carby and delicious, then you will often feel deprived, which can make adhering to this lifestyle difficult.

When done well…

While keto living can be disastrous when done poorly, it can also have significant benefits when done properly. Keto living done right will help you shed a significant amount of unwanted fat, and leave you feeling energized, focused and thinking clearly. In addition, a ketogenic diet can contribute to the prevention of cancer, heart disease and Alzheimer's, and can improve the symptoms of PCOS. If you love healthy fats, then this is your dream lifestyle as its foundation is healthy fat.

Here’s the real deal…

I am not 100% sold on keto living just yet. I can see obvious health benefits in the research that’s been conducted thus far, but I think people need to enter into this type of lifestyle with lots of guidance.

I can see there being huge benefits for those people who love healthy fats, but think this would be absolutely miserable for donut girls who love their carbs!

This month, me and the members of my VIP FASTer Way to Fat Loss program are going to spend two weeks learning about keto living, and then 2 weeks slowly implementing this lifestyle. We are going to ease into things with the help of our incredible mentor. My hope is that by the end of the month the women in my group will have a better grasp on whether ketogenic living is for them. I truly believe in bio individuality, and advocate for each of my clients to find what works best for them. While I truly believe that carb cycling and intermittent fasting have the most significant benefits for the widest range of people, I want my clients to be able to make informed decisions about everything that is out there today.

My one tip…

The one thing I do highly recommend in terms of implementing a ketogenic diet is that you consult someone who really knows what they are doing so you don’t jack up your hormones and put on extra weight. I’ve entrusted the amazing Kate Jaramillo with my group this month, and have already loved learning from her. If you are interested in hearing more about Kate’s journey and advice for keto living, check out this podcast we recently did together.

If you are interested in my VIP group and have gone through the FASTer Way To Fat Loss* already, head on over here to sign up.

If you have not gone through the FASTer Way to Fat Loss and are interested in burning fat, building lean muscle, and getting in the very best shape of your life - while eating your favorite treats - then sign up for the next round of my program beginning October 16th.


*The FASTer Way To Fat Loss is not a keto based program. We implement intermittent fasting, carb cycling and effective workouts to turn our bodies into pro fat burners.

Is 6 Weeks Enough for an Online Training Program?

Is 6 Weeks Enough for an Online Training Program?

A six week fitness program is not enough.

I can say that because I run an incredibly successful 6 week fitness program, The FASTer Way to Fat Loss, and I can tell you one round is NOT enough to keep you healthy for life.

However…

It is a great start. With one round of the FASTer Way to Fat Loss, clients see incredible results: they lose weight, get stronger, increase their energy levels, improve their digestion and get better sleep. Those results are consistent and they are amazing, but I highly recommend my clients don’t stop there.

Why?

  • Because a lifestyle change that lasts, takes more than six weeks.
  • Because unless you’ve reached your goal, you need to continue working towards it.
  • Because at the end of the day, even the most motivated people need some accountability and encouragement.

So, 6 weeks will give you skills, knowledge and results, but won’t be enough to last you a lifetime.

It is a common myth that creating a new habit takes 21 days. However, research has actually shown that on average, it takes people 66 days to create 1 new habit 1 , that’s a little over 9 weeks. Those going through a program like my FASTer Way program are changing a number of habits all at once. So, going through at least 2 rounds of a 6 week program makes a lot more sense than just 1 round.

What about after that?

Some people feel as though they no longer need the support and accountability of a program after participating in a round or two. However, many love their results so much they want to learn more, get stronger, and keep seeing results in terms of their health, fitness level and performance, even after reaching their goal weight. Those who continue to adjust their plan as they become more advanced continue to see results, while many who opt out of accountability and the next level, find themselves sitting at a plateau, or going back to their old ways.

Finding accountability, encouragement and a continued plan that gets gradually more difficult is critical to maintaining your health and fitness long term.

That is why I created my FASTer Way To Fat Loss VIP program. I knew that the ladies coming out of a round or two saw incredible results and built some great habits...but I knew they needed more.

  • These women needed workouts that were more challenging.
  • They needed to continue to have accountability.
  • They needed the continued support of an online group.

They needed more information about more advanced health and fitness topics so they could make better decisions and continue to grow.

These women needed an ongoing option that allowed them to continue seeing progress, alongside other like-minded women.

So, I figured out a way to provide that and the results have been incredible.

The women in my VIP group have been through at least two rounds of the FASTer Way to Fat Loss, and are continuing to get leaner and stronger. They are getting new workouts each month, daily accountability and TONS of fantastic training on everything from turning macros into meal plans to details on adrenal health.

They have full access to me, my team, and their monthly mentor, and are experiencing amazing results.

6 weeks is not enough to last a lifetime. It can be an incredible start. There are a few who will continue the lifestyle on their own after the 6 weeks are done. However, most will need at least 2 rounds of a 6 week program and continued support thereafter.

If you are interested in starting to change your lifestyle and get leaner and stronger than ever before, my FASTer Way to Fat Loss is the best program on the market to help you do just that. If you have already been through the program once and want to join again, email me about a discounted rate for returning clients. If you have gone through the FASTer Way twice and want to continue the lifestyle, while learning and growing alongside other women pursuing the same thing you are, then check out my FASTer Way to Fat Loss VIP program!

Pregnancy Update 2!

Pregnancy Update 2!

I am officially out of my first trimester, which is truly a good thing! My nausea has finally subsided and I am feeling worlds better. Since this pregnancy was so unexpected, there have been some definite adjustments made on the fly, but overall I am feeling pretty good.

My workouts have been…

Consistent and intense. Despite traveling a lot, I have been able to do two-a-day workouts. I am doing one heavier strength training workout in the morning and then a 2-3 mile walk in the afternoon/evening. Honestly, I have kept this so tight because I feel best when I am working out. My time in the gym is truly one of the times I feel most energized. So, we are squeezing in workouts every day!

Since I am hitting the gym so hard, I am also hitting my naps so hard. Two a day workouts call for two a day naps. Every. Single. Day.

Nutrition has been…

Rough, but is getting better. I was so sick for the first few weeks that the thought of most foods made me incredibly nauseous. To add to that stress, I was traveling a lot and ended up eating a super carb heavy diet. This went on through about week 9, and I have since started to get back on track. I enjoyed my breakfast sandwich phase in weeks 6-9, as did Brandon, and am now focused on eating a clean, paleo diet for the remainder of my pregnancy.

I had been giving myself a lot of grace with dairy, wheat and grains during the first few weeks of pregnancy, but am tightening things back up and plan on finishing out this pregnancy with everything in check.

I am still fasting daily, but have been a bit more flexible with the start and end time of my eating window.

Overall...

This pregnancy has gone really well. My biggest struggles have been nutrition and exhaustion. My nutrition is back on track, and I am hoping that will help increase my energy levels a bit. I tend to feel a lot more energized and comfortable when I am dairy free and gluten free, so Paleo is the way to go for me for the rest of my pregnancy.

The exhaustion has been hard to work around. Thankfully, I have a fantastic team that can pick up some slack for me. However, I am so ready to get my energy back so I can hustle like I normally do. Business has been incredible for the last two months, but it has been hard for me to keep up with the growth due to my exhaustion. I am hoping to feel more like myself in the weeks to come!

In the meantime, I am developing a FASTer Way to Fat Loss Fit Pregnancy program for women who were fit before they got pregnant and would like to remain that way. I can’t wait to roll this program out for you ladies here shortly! Stay tuned.

Pregnancy Update

In case you missed it...we are pregnant and due in January! Surprised?

Yeah...so are we! A third child was definitely not in the plans, but after getting over the initial shock, we are really excited to add a little more craziness to the already crazy Tress home!

How in the world….?

For those wondering what happened, here’s the breakdown. For months I had been experiencing headaches that were due to an estrogen dominant birth control pill I had been on for years. I came off that birth control and switched to a progesterone dominant mini-pill and scheduled an appointment for the Mirena. However, prior to that appointment my hormones were all out of whack. I was bloated, I wasn’t ovulating, I was tired, and I was retaining water. So, I went to a holistic doctor to get some testing done. $662 and 15 vials of blood later, she told me what $2 and some pee could have told me...I was pregnant!

Why that was such a shock…

Honestly, being pregnant was not something that had entered my mind. I had to take fertility meds to get pregnant with both Emma and Cole, and have PCOS. Enter the FASTer Way to Fat Loss and brand new partners challenge, and the rest is history...What?!?!?! PSA if you're joining my July 10 round of the FASTer Way and participating with your significant other -- be sure to double up on birth control!

How is it going?

The first few weeks were great. I was following the FASTer Way to a T. Then, when I started to feel less like myself, and we found out, I had to switch up some things. I was really sick and really tired for a while. I literally could not fathom eating anything but… wait for it..breakfast sandwiches. Yep, that’s right. This whole food nutrition girl could eat nothing but Chick-fil-a and McDonalds breakfast sandwiches...for like two weeks; don’t judge, I am growing a human!

Over the past week, I have been able to eat a little better. I am still doing some intermittent fasting, but am really listening to my body and what it needs. There are still lots of things I just can’t stomach right now, donuts are one of them. If you know me, then you know that me not eating donuts may be the biggest shocker in this update!

I am not doing many low carb days, and am craving all kinds of carbs, so I’ve had to adjust some of the FASTer Way to my current needs. However, I am working on a Fit Pregnancy version of the FASTer Way to help mama’s-to-be stay fit while pregnant.

Workouts are…

...still going strong. I feel so much better when I hit the gym, so I have made it a point to do something active almost every day. I have decreased my intensity a bit just due to being so tired. Also, because I haven’t been doing low carb days that often, I haven’t been doing as much sprinting and HIIT. So, it’s been more lifting for me thus far, but I am feeling great in terms of workouts!

Obviously, we are so excited to welcome this new little one into our lives, although it came as a HUGE surprise. Thank you to everyone who has sent along well wishes! I can’t wait to keep you updated and will be sure to do so on Instagram and FB live. I am also excited to be able to better serve my pregnant clients as I work through perfecting a new program tailored to your needs!

Also...I am considering changing the name of the FASTer Way to Fat Loss to the FASTer Way to Fertility….because I am not the first person this has happened to...just sayin’!!!

Thanks again for the well wishes and I can’t wait to take you all on this journey with us!

FASTer Way Coach Spotlight: Lindsay Huelse

The FASTer Way to Fat Loss coaches continue to blow me away with their incredible success. 
They have truly been able to rock this business in ways I never imagined. These women have more than earned back their initial investment in the certification program, and are all well on their way to running a sustainable, successful business...on their own terms. I am loving the testimonials coming in from our coaches; they make me feel like a proud mama!!

Today’s featured coach is Lindsay Huelse. Lindsay is totally killing it with her FASTer Way programs, despite holding down a full-time corporate job!

Why did you decide to become certified?
I decided to become a FASTer Way to Fat Loss coach because of the way I was feeling. Going through my first round was a LIFE changer. I wanted to be able to share this program with everyone and change lives the way my life was changed. I have always wanted to do something like owning my own fitness business or studio, but I could never figure out where or how to start. Amanda literally handed me a business in a box.

How did you enjoy the process?
I really enjoyed the process!! The format on teachable was super easy to navigate through and being able to do it at your own pace was a huge advantage. I really loved being part of the Coaches Certification Community as well. There is just something special about women supporting women.

After completing the process, did you feel fully competent to run your own program?
I did!!

What is your main goal with running the FASTer Way?
My main goal with running the FASTer Way program is to reach and empower as many women as I possibly can. My secondary goal is to match my corporate income per month so I can quit my job -- I am already halfway there!!

What would you say to someone on the fence about becoming certified?
JUST DO IT!! Next to trying the FASTer Way, becoming a coach is one of the best decisions you will ever make!

Have you already started running programs? If so, how's it going?
I have already started, and it's going great!! I have already touched the lives of over 45 women through my own FASTer Way groups. 

Did you catch that? 

Lindsay has had 45 women in her FASTer Way programs since getting certified a couple of months ago...at $200 a person, that is pretty significant! 

As a FASTer way coach you don’t give back a percentage of what you earn or earn a percentage of what you sell. You simply complete the certification, then run your own business keeping 100% of the profits. 

Lindsay is just like you. She didn’t have a booming fitness business (although some of our coaches do, and have used the FASTer Way to grow their business even further). She earned her certification and began her business all while working full time as a regional director of sales for a healthcare company in Dallas. That is no small task!!!

Lindsay is a true testament to the fact that the FASTer Way Certification program is more than just a fitness certification, it is truly a business in a box. Lindsay has taken everything we’ve given her in terms of health and wellness, business and marketing and turned it into a legitimate side hustle! I am certain she will be able to match her corporate salary in no time, and can’t wait to see the amazing things she does through her new, growing fitness business. 

To follow along on her journey, catch her on Instagram and Facebook!

Ready for your turn?

FASTer Way To Fat Loss Coach Spotlight: Emily Arger

I knew that opening up a FASTer Way to Fat Loss certification program was a good idea, but had no idea how incredible the results would be! Now that most of the FASTer Way to Fat Loss Coaches have begun their own rounds of the FASTer Way to Fat Loss, I am truly blown away by the success these ladies have seen.  

The nutrition and exercise component of the Faster Way certification has given these women the tools they need to help others reach their health and fitness goals. However, the business accelerator workshop component of the certification has propelled these women into full fledged success. Whether they are newbies to the fitness industry or seasoned pros, the women coming out of the FASTer Way to Fat Loss certification program are totally rocking their new business.  

Today we are featuring one of our rockstar coaches, Emily Arger as she is just beginning her first round of the FWTFL. This lady has ROCKED the FASTer Way Lifestyle and is killing it as a FASTer Way coach!

 Here’s what Emily had to say about becoming a FASTer Way To Fat Loss coach.

Why did you decide to become a FASTer Way coach?

The decision to become a FASTer Way to Fat Loss coach was such an easy decision.  I had previewed the program and gone through it myself, and absolutely knew I needed to teach other moms this material!

How did you enjoy the process?

The process to become a coach was easy in that the information was presented so well that I devoured it. When you are interested in something, it is so much easier to learn and absorb the material. Plus, I was super excited to host my own FWTFL groups, so that was motivation to power through, retain the information, and pass the test!

After completing the process did you feel fully competent to run your own FWTFL programs?

I absolutely felt MORE than equipped to host my own groups after becoming a FWTFL coach! The additional program material from the Business Accelerator course sets you up for such success. It's literally a business in a box! Amazing.

 What is your main goal with running the FWTFL?

My main goal is to teach as MANY Moms as possible that this wellness journey does not need to be Hard. The FWTFL is such an incredible LIFESTYLE program that I feel I must get it into every busy mamas hands!!! To teach moms Intermittent Fasting, carb cycling, and enjoyable workouts with the FWTFL protocol is like a dream job, I really do feel like this is life-changing.

What would you say to someone on the fence about getting certified?

I would say you have no idea what you're missing. The material you learn as a coach, the business side of things, plus the outrageous portal where the entire program is housed....oh my goodness it is silly how amazing it is. I'm so grateful for this opportunity and I highly recommend it!

Have you already started running programs? If so how is it going?

I have already started my first group and from the first few days, I couldn't stop smiling ear to ear. Already the ladies are saying how EASY it is, and how much relief they feel to have FOUND this program. So to be able to coach women through it is so awesome!!! Best "job" ever! 

Want to connect with Emily and watch her grow an incredible business helping women live stronger, happier, healthier lives? Check out her Instagram and Facebook page!  

Emily has 9 women signed up in her first round of the FWTFL which more than covers her investment in the certification. The beauty of this certification is you are truly buying into your own business. I am not offering a percentage of sales. You get certified, you keep 100% of every bootcamp you run. The business is truly your own, and you have unlimited earning potential. Emily is living proof that you can make this work for you and we are so excited to see how she continues to grow her business! 

If you are passionate about helping women, looking to start your own flexible business, and love health and wellness, this is the PERFECT way to build your dream career, just as Emily has.

I am very selective about who I allow to go through the FASTer Way Certification, because I want every coach to experience success. If you are interested in finding out more, the first step is to set up a 20 minute consult. During our time together we will chat about your goals to see if the program would be a good fit. There are NO strings attached to this call, so you’ve got nothing to lose!

FASTer Way to Fat Loss Coach Spotlight

Have you been considering whether or not to join me for the next round of my FASTer Way to Fat loss Coach Certification Program, but aren’t sure if you can really pull off running your own online programs?

I totally understand your hesitation. Whether you are new to the fitness industry looking to start a fitness business or  a seasoned trainer looking to expand online your online services, investing in a certification should be considered carefully.

However, there is also a time to stop all the weighing and just dive on in. The scariest step is always the first one. After that, they always seem to get just a bit easier.

And, to help you take that first step, I’ve decided to highlight a few ladies from the first round of my coaches certification program to show you what is possible. These women are JUST like you. They are a mixture of FASTer Way clients who’ve never trained anyone and fitness pros who have been in the industry for years. While their backgrounds are all totally different, they all have one thing in common: they are rocking it as FASTer Way to Fat Loss coaches.

Today, I’d like to introduce you to Lindsey Bush. Here’s what she had to say about going through the FASTer Way to Fat Loss certification.

Why did you decide to become a FASTer Way to Fat Loss Coach?

I decided to become certified because I was a raving fan of the program. After "trying it all" I knew I had to share this program with everyone I know. It was too good of a secret to keep to myself. Because I am so passionate about the program, I felt like becoming a certified coach was the perfect fit as a side hustle for me.

How was the certification process?

I loved the process. I already had a good understanding of the program and the science behind it. What I was less sure about was the business content that would be included. I love everything I've learned and continue to learn on the business and marketing side. The content is great and very engaging. It can be applied to not only coaching, but other aspects of life so it really is a win/win.

After completing the process, do you feel fully competent to run your own program?

Yes, I feel fully competent to run my own program. The certificate course is chock-full of valuable information to help us coaches address many different situations we may encounter along our journey with helping clients.  I still have more to learn on the marketing side, but I know I have the right resources to teach me this piece with Amanda and her team.

What is your main goal in terms of running the FASTer Way to Fat Loss?

My main goal with running the FWTFL is the empower women to become the best version of themselves through fitness and nutrition. I truly feel most people have no idea how good their bodies can actually feel, and this program will get them there. I want everyone to feel the way I do. Having the opportunity to feel like I am in business for myself is exciting and empowering to me. I have a fire in my belly and hope I can grow my client base substantially to help people, create financial security for my family, and give generously.

What advice would you give to someone on the fence about signing up to be a FASTer Way Coach?

If you can't stop thinking about signing up, then you need to do it! I took a massive leap of faith and randomly signed up in the middle of the night, and so far it's been a great decision. I feel like I'm doing something solely for myself. It's not about being a mom, wife, or my day job - and I love that. I've learned a lot of new things and a lot about myself.

Have you already started running FASTer Way to Fat Loss programs? If so, how’s it going?

My first session started yesterday with over 30 women! My next round starts on June 19th and I hope to surpass 30 women for that round!

Obviously, Lindsey is not only excited about the new opportunity she has through the FASTer Way to Fat Loss, but she is already killing it as a coach. You can follow Lindsey on her journey to helping women find the best version of themselves on Facebook and Instagram.

Are you ready to take that scary first step?

Remember the FASTer Way to Fat Loss Coaching program isn’t an MLM model. Once you are certified, you run your own programs, keeping 100% of the profit. We not only give you all of the science, fitness and nutrition information you need to run those programs, but we help you market in a non-spammy way, so you can actually grow a sustainable business.

This certification program truly is a no brainer for those of you who have gone through the FASTer Way to Fat Loss and are passionate about helping other women reach their health and fitness goals.

To determine whether this is a good fit for you, sign up for a free consult to discuss the program and whether or not you would be a good fit!

FASTer Way To Fat Loss Coaches Spotlight

Now that we’ve been able to certify the coaches who’ve gone through the first round of our FASTer Way to Fat Loss Certification program, we wanted to catch up with a few ladies to let you know how they are using their new certification!

This week we are going to introduce you to Casey Ferkingstad. I met Casey when she went through my FASTer Way to Fat Loss program and was truly amazed by her results! She was one of the first people to hop on board with the coaches certification, and helps me run my own current FASTer Way to Fat Loss groups in addition to running her new, growing business.

Here’s what she had to say about her experience with the FASTer Way to Fat Loss certification program!

Why did you decide to get certified?

I decided to become a certified coach because I was obsessed with the idea of how much sense this program makes! I literally had the most amazing journey as a client and I wanted to help other women find their way through the clutter of fad diets in today’s online fitness and nutrition world.

How did you enjoy the certification process?

I enjoyed the process of being able to work at my own pace! I do my best work super early in the mornings so having unlimited access was amazing! The workbook activities also force you to really think things through and not just rush and then feel overwhelmed during the implementation steps!  

After completing the process, did you feel fully competent to run your own programs?

I felt like I knew a secret that other industry professionals did not! It's not just about posting cute Instagram pics and video bursts of you doing a workout! Having the business and marketing knowledge that this program offers is the biggest key to starting a successful business of your own!

What is your main goal for running your own FASTer Way to Fat Loss programs? 

My main goal is to help women achieve and maintain optimal wellness while still feeling like they are living a balanced life! I hope to continue my success as a FWTFL coach so I can build a business that brings joy and purpose to my own life while helping others.

What would you say to someone on the fence about becoming a FWTFL certified coach?

I would say- yes you can definitely become a "coach" with another program for less money! However, you will be one of thousands of professionals stumped as to why they cannot figure out how to move beyond their inner circle of family and friends to reach more clients! This program truly teaches you to be successful with all the behind the scenes tools that other programs will never even mention to you! You won’t just know how to run a program, but will know how to grow a successful business!

Have you started your first group yet? If so, how is it going?

My first group started May 15th and I have 26 amazing ladies going through this first round of the FASTer Way with me! The amazing feedback I am already receiving, even though we are only in week 2, literally drives me daily! My 2nd round is already half full!

I am so excited for Casey and her new journey as a FASTer Way to Fat Loss coach. She is well on her way to building an incredibly successful and rewarding business that offers her flexibility and unlimited earning potential!

To keep up with Casey on her journey as a FWTFL coach, check her out on Facebook and Instagram!

And, if you are still considering becoming certified yourself, feel free to set up a quick consult call to determine if this program is a good fit for you. Casey had no prior fitness certifications upon completing our program, but more than half of our new coaches were already working in the fitness industry prior to starting this certification.

Whether you’d like to dip your toes into the online fitness world, or are looking to expand your current in-person services and online programs, this certification has everything you need!

Why Husbands Love the FASTer Way...

Why Husbands Love the FASTer Way...

While most of my testimonials come from the women who’ve gone through my FASTer Way to Fat Loss program, I often get thank you notes from my client’s husbands.

Here’s the thing ladies...Your husband married you for a reason. He most likely thinks you look absolutely beautiful. Which is why most women are surprised to find out what their husbands actually thank me for in terms of the FASTer Way to Fat Loss outcomes their wives experience.  

Here are a few things my client’s husbands usually say about their wives after they’ve gone through the FASTer Way To Fat Loss.

Husbands tell me:

Their wife is more confident.

Again, your husband thinks you look just fine! He married you because he thinks you are beautiful. He wants you to feel confident in your own skin. The women who go through my program often experience a huge boost in confidence, and their husbands love it!

Their wife is more positive.

One of our main areas of focus during the FASTer Way to Fat Loss is mindset. Fat loss is the hook that brings women into my program. However, once you are in my program, we start working on your mindset! As women, we often count our defeats and losses more than our wins. During the FASTer Way, we work hard on changing that, and husbands take note of their wives positivity as a result!

Their wife is more ambitious.

The women in my program see progress towards their goals. That often causes women to be more focused and ambitious in every area of life. They have more energy, are feeling good, so they start setting and hitting more and more goals. Many husbands find this incredibly attractive!

Their wife gives them more action.

More energy = more love = a happy husband...need I say more?

Ladies, the FASTer Way to Fat Loss will absolutely help you reach your fat loss goals. However, you don’t need to be thin to like yourself or to be happy. Being thin doesn’t make anyone nice, positive or happy. What you need is the proper mindset, and progress and passion towards your goals. The FASTer Way to Fat Loss gives you all of that, in addition to the fat loss results you will see. Your husband, friends and family will undoubtedly notice those changes just as much as they notice your physical changes.

Interested in Joining the FASTer Way Revolution?

Now that the first round of the FASTer Way to Fat Loss coaches certification program has launched, I can confidently say the growth of the FASTer Way lifestyle has hit a huge tipping point. I could not be more thrilled with the continued interest in not only the program, but in women wanting to begin their online fitness business through the FASTer Way.

While we have not opened another round of certification yet, I know there are many of you interested in joining the FASTer Way to Fat Loss coaches certification in the future. If that’s true of you, here are a few things to keep in mind for the coming months.

The purpose of the FASTer Way to Fat Loss coaches certification is twofold: To spread my reach through the FASTer Way program and help women like you build a successful business. This month I took on 500 new FASTer Way clients. I simply do not have the bandwidth to continue growing at this pace. Having several other coaches who are certified to run the FASTer Way means more women will experience the freedom and results the FASTer Way brings. In addition, the business accelerator portion of the curriculum will give coaches everything they need to build a successful business around the FASTer Way to Fat Loss. This is completely in line with the mission behind my agency and coaching services: to help female entrepreneurs earn significant income to recirculate back into family, church and community.

The course curriculum is heavy on both science and marketing. It is critical that you not only learn the science behind the program’s components, but that you learn how to successfully market and grow your program. This certification is unique because it gives you both the science and business sides of running an online bootcamp. This truly is a business in a box!

You must first go through the FASTer Way to FAT Loss prior to becoming a coach. The next round of the FASTer Way to Fat Loss begins May 22nd. In order to be considered for the coaches certification program, you must be a FASTer Way alum! It is important to me that all coaches fully believe in the power of the FASTer Way and the lifestyle it promotes. The only way to be sure this program is for you is to go through it. So, if you are thinking of doing an upcoming round of the certification program, and haven’t gone through the FASTer Way as a client, sign up for the May 22nd round!

Once certified, you will have the rights to run the program and earn 100% commission ($199 per client). In addition, you will have access to all program assets. We do ask that coaches keep our branding, logo and food and workout cycle so there is consistency and equality for clients going through the FASTer Way to Fat Loss. Other than that, you are free to use the program as you see fit.

The FASTer Way to Fat Loss is truly the most effective program on the market today. I am so thrilled to be able to expand its reach and help more women through the coaches certification program!

If you are interested in joining us for the next round, and want to join the waiting list to be notified first when the certification program opens up again, sign up here!

Top 3 Mistakes Women Make That Keep Them From Burning Fat

Top 3 Mistakes Women Make That Keep Them From Burning Fat

The other day I was fortunate enough to do a quick split screen interview with Dr. Steven Cabral, my friend and Board Certified Naturopathic doctor. We talked about the 3 common mistakes women make on their journey to burning fat. Here’s a quick recap!

Estrogen Dominance

I recently struggled with headaches and getting rid of some water weight. I realized this was largely due to the birth control I was using. I have since made a change, and have seen a huge improvement. I asked Dr. Cabral to share a bit about that in this interview.  He explained that this was due to something called estrogen dominance. Estrogen dominance can happen for a number of reasons including: holding onto extra weight, toxicity, constipation, and of course, birth control. When the body is in a state of estrogen dominance, you may feel irritable and overwhelmed, experience brain fog, and develop breakouts around the chin and on your back. You may also experience various types of digestive issues about 5 days before the end of your menstrual cycle. The test for this is a simple saliva test. You can ask your doctor, a local naturopath or visit Dr. Cabral’s site if you think this might be an issue for you!

To address estrogen dominance you will likely want to do some type of cleanse or bodily reset to remove toxicity.

Not Getting Enough Sleep

Dr. Cabral shared that if you are not getting at least 6-7 hours of good sleep each night, then your resting blood sugar levels will be elevated when you wake up. When  blood sugar levels are higher, your body struggles to burn fat. In addition, when your body is sleep deprived, it is operating in a state of survival. When in survival mode, your body lowers its metabolic rate, raises thyroid production and cortisol levels, and causes you to go into estrogen dominance. Sleep is incredibly important when you are trying to turn your body from a fat burner to a sugar burner.

Not Eating Enough

A major mistake many women make is not eating enough. It is important to eat enough of the right macronutrients from whole foods to keep your metabolic rate elevated. Macronutrients ensure that your body has enough energy and fuel for the day.

For women on low carb diets, you should consider cycling your carbs as opposed to cutting them out so your thyroid regulation isn’t decreased and your metabolic rate isn't slowed down. Dr. Cabral also mentioned how critical it is to eat foods that are rich in nutritional value not just foods that fit your macros. This is key because your body needs the micronutrients found in whole foods to function optimally. If you want to think clearly, have clear skin, burn fat and feel energized, micronutrients are just as important as macronutrients. So, while a Snickers bar may fit your macros every day, it is important to ensure you are getting the proper nutrition from the foods you eat.

Dr. Cabral shared a ton of other helpful information, went more into the science, and shared a bit about his Greens product. To learn more, listen to the entire video here! Also, be sure to check out Stephen’s Instagram account and give him a follow. He’s got tons of helpful info to share!

Freedom through the FASTer Way to Fat Loss

Comment

Freedom through the FASTer Way to Fat Loss

The FASTer Way to Fat Loss has helped countless women get lean and fit...but it’s also helped them find freedom.

While I’ve never personally struggled with an eating disorder, being in the fitness industry has certainly tainted my view of diet and exercise. For years, those of us in the industry were told that it’s all about small meals scattered throughout the day, insane-hour-long workouts, 5-6 days a week and regular weigh-ins to keep people motivated and on track.  We not only learned that this was the best approach to getting in shape, but we preached these methods to our clients.

Today, we know better, but it’s still a fight to break past traditionally accepted methods of losing weight and staying fit. However, my clients and I have both found freedom through the FASTer Way and that freedom is priceless.

Here’s how it happens:

Food freedom.

I define food freedom as feeling in control of the food you eat instead of food controlling you. Indulging when it’s worth it, passing when it isn’t, and never feeling guilt or shame regarding your food choices.

  • Food freedom is feeling like I can maintain this lifestyle for the rest of my life.

  • Food freedom is feeling like food can be fun again.

  • Food freedom is not having to worry about mini-meals shoved into containers every. single. day.

  • Food freedom is not stressing about what to eat and when to eat on my busiest days.

  • Food freedom is having no guilt or shame over my favorite indulgences or treats with my family.

  • Food freedom is not having to worry about eating as soon as I get up, and then again every two hours thereafter.

  • Food freedom is not feeling enslaved to calorie counting.

The FASTer Way to Fat Loss has given me the freedom to eat a whole foods based diet, full of the nutrients I need to feel full of energy every day, but it doesn’t consume me. It doesn’t overwhelm me. It doesn’t stress me out. I don’t have to eat first thing in the morning. I don’t have to plan ahead with a hundred little containers stuffed full of food every day. I can just live and enjoy my food!

Freedom from weigh-ins.

For years, I was told to do regular weigh-ins and I preached that to my clients as well. Some trainers did daily weigh-ins, no one did them less than weekly. The Biggest Loser and Weight Watchers are based around weigh-ins. Weigh-ins were the standard in the industry for YEARS. However, the FASTer Way has given me total freedom from having to weigh in. In fact, if I could, I would make everyone all across America throw out their scales. The scale truly can not measure your health, wellness or confidence. How you feel, how you look, and how much space you take up in your pants are far better indicators of overall well being than a number on the scale. I no longer weigh myself, and don’t allow my clients to step on a scale at all. The FASTer Way has given me freedom to ditch the scale and start focusing on my non-scale victories instead.

Freedom to feel proud of yourself.

The FASTer Way to Fat Loss has given me the freedom to be confident in how I look and the progress I’ve made. If you are seeing progress toward your goals, there is nothing wrong with being proud of that progress! My clients are learning to celebrate that progress and the small wins on their journey toward the healthiest, strongest versions of themselves.

Freedom to rest and permission to scale back from workouts.

After years of grinding in the gym for hour-long-insane workouts, 5-6 days a week, the FASTer Way has finally given me the freedom to rest and scale back on my workouts. In fact, I’ve learned that it is absolutely imperative to take time to rest and listen to our bodies. The type of workouts we’ve been told to do are actually what cause the symptoms of hypothyroidism, adrenal fatigue and burnout.

Through the FASTer Way, my clients and I have learned to work out smarter. We pair our food cycle with the workouts that will give us the most bang for our buck. We eat enough to fuel our more challenging workouts. I only ask FASTer Way clients to really grind in the gym 2 days per week.

I’ve gained total freedom to step into the gym, realize I’m not feeling it, and scale back or just go home. I tell clients to do the same; if they haven’t slept well, have had a particularly stressful day or are feeling under the weather, then they too have the freedom to call it a day and get some rest.

The FASTer Way will get you lean, fit and strong, but more importantly, it will give you the same kind of freedom that my clients and I have found over the last year and a half.


Slots for my April 24th round are almost completely filled. If you are interested in joining, do so asap, before they are all gone!

The FASTer Way to Fat Loss for Breastfeeding Moms

The FASTer Way to Fat Loss for Breastfeeding Moms

Last week I had the privilege of doing a live, split screen interview with Dr. Karen Wonders.  Karen is the director of the Maple Tree Cancer Alliance, a nonprofit organization that provides exercise rehabilitation to men and women with cancer. She is also a wife, mom of 7...yes 7, and FASTer Way To Fat Loss client.

A common question I come across for those interested in joining the FASTer Way postpartum is, “will it affect my milk supply?” My response is always the same: “when you eat the food God’s intended for us to eat, your body will be able to do it’s job optimally.”

I asked Karen to chat with me because she began the FASTer Way to Fat Loss 5 weeks postpartum with her 7th child. She has seen phenomenal results--34 lbs in 4.5 months--all while maintaining her milk supply. Karen is proof of the body’s ability to work optimally when fueled properly and has some great tips for postpartum moms wanting to go through the FASTer Way.

How does intermittent fasting affect supply?

Because you are still eating the same amount of calories each day, intermittent fasting doesn’t have a negative effect on milk supply. Your milk supply is most commonly affected when you restrict your caloric intake. However, through the FASTer Way, we will set your daily calories and macros to a level that is more than sufficient for both you and baby. The fasting aspect of the program should not play a significant role in your milk supply.

How does carb cycling affect milk supply?

Since our carb cycle requires you to focus on the specific macronutrients you take in every day, you are going to be eating more of the essential nutrients your body needs than when you just track calories. The carb cycle also allows your body to get plenty of each macronutrient, without completely cutting one out. This again is eating the way God intended, and fueling both your body and baby’s body well!

How does going gluten free and dairy free affect supply?

Women in my FASTer Way program do this to varying degrees, however, I highly recommend going through the 6 weeks gluten and dairy free. Because gluten and dairy are both highly modified during food production, they can be inflammatory for many of my clients. For those who don’t go completely gluten and dairy free, they typically end up cutting way back on both gluten and dairy and still see phenomenal results. Kim found that this greatly improved her quality of life while having no effect on her milk supply. In fact, most new moms are told that too much dairy is likely to cause some gas and discomfort for your baby, so this type of lifestyle is truly beneficial for both mom and baby.

What kinds of things should you pay attention to when breastfeeding on the FASTer Way?

Kim recommended a few ways to keep an eye on your milk supply including: regularly checking baby’s weight and rate of wet and dirty diapers. If your baby continues to gain weight and have a normal amount of diapers, then your supply is doing well. Obviously, if you pump at all, you will be able to keep a good eye on your milk supply and make adjustments as you see fit.

As Kim shared, the FASTer Way isn’t a diet, but a flexible lifestyle that helps women in all seasons of life feel healthier, stronger, leaner and more in control. If you are a breastfeeding mom, I highly recommend you give the FASTer Way to Fat Loss a try. I do make some slight modifications to the food cycle for those postpartum, but overall the program is completely doable at any stage of life. My best advice is to monitor your milk supply throughout the 6 weeks and if you see things changing,(many have seen an increase in milk supply), make note so we can make adjustments!

Everyone’s results will be different, but Kim’s insight and experience may be helpful to some of you who are concerned about how the FASTer Way might affect your milk supply. To listen to the entire interview, head on over to my Facebook page!


The next round of the FASTer Way starts April 24th. Spots fill up within days, each and every time I open up registration. If you’ve been thinking about joining for a while, now is the time my friend! You will not find a more sustainable, effective program on the market today.

Registration for the FASTer Way to Fat Loss Coach Certification program is now open.

This is something so many of you have been asking about for months now, so I am thrilled to finally be able to offer this incredible opportunity to those who have been patiently waiting!

Over the last year and a half, I have grown this program from 11 women in my first round, to several hundred women each and every month. During your certification program, you will not only learn the ins and outs of the FASTer Way to Fat Loss program, but you will learn the important strategies behind marketing, growing and running your own FASTer Way to Fat Loss online bootcamps.

Not sure if this certification is for you? Let me help you decide!

  • Are you committed to helping women find the leanest, strongest, healthiest most energized version of themselves?

  • Are you ready to be a part of something bigger than the ineffective quick-fixes cluttering up the internet today?

  • Are you tired of only earning a small percentage of sales from the challenge groups you run and want to increase your knowledge and credibility as a forward thinker?

  • Are you a past client who’s experienced the amazing results of the FASTer Way lifestyle? Are you ready to share this way of living with your family, friends and community while earning some money along the way?

If you answered yes to any of the questions above, this certification is perfect for you! There are two certification options to choose from based on your individual needs.

Once we’ve had some time to talk, I will help you choose the program option that is best suited for you.

The One Thing I Can't Give You

The One Thing I Can't Give You

Today’s post is going to be short and sweet…

If you are in the FASTer Way to Fat Loss then I will provide you with everything you need to be successful, except…

The proper mindset. That’s one thing I can’t provide you with.

If you are just beginning the FASTer Way to Fat Loss with me, then your main goal is maintaining the right mindset. That means:

You are focused on progress not perfection.

The end goal is important...but ALL progress is a step in the right direction. Forward movement is always a good thing and is super important to building a sustainable, healthy lifestyle.

You celebrate daily wins and small steps in the right direction.

The little victories each day add up to huge results over time. Maintaining a proper mindset means you are less focused on your missteps than on your daily wins.

You don’t compare yourself to others.

Everyone has different goals, different macros to hit, different PR’s in the gym, and different circumstances surrounding their journey. In order to maintain the proper mindset you’ve got to keep your eyes on your own paper.

You celebrate the non-scale victories just as much as the scale victories.

The FASTer Way to Fat Loss will help you burn fat effectively. But that’s not the point. The point is a better quality of life. The point is greater health, strength and confidence. The point is so much more than lean legs and six pack abs, which is why you need to focus on the non-scale victories like more energy, better sleep and less stomach discomfort. Those matter in the long run!!!

I can turn your body from a sugar burner into a fat burner with the right combination of intermittent fasting, carb cycling, macro counting, weight training and speed burst training. However, you’ve got to work on setting your mind on the positives, the successes and the baby steps.

If you are continually focused on everyone else, the place where you’ve messed up and your limitations, you are going to struggle through the entire program...and honestly...through most of life. The FASTer Way to Fat Loss can give you the tools necessary to live a sustainable healthy lifestyle. It’s your job to work on your focus to solidify a truly positive mindset!

FASTer Way to Fat Loss Cleanse + Cookbook Bundle Giveaway!

The FASTer Way to Fat Loss is growing and we couldn’t be more thrilled to launch our latest products!

So… we decided to host a little giveaway to get this launch party started!

When I began experimenting with intermittent fasting and carb cycling, my results were incredible! I immediately knew I had found something that not only got results but was truly sustainable. I also knew a program based on these strategies could help so many women burn fat, feel energized, and finally break past their weight loss plateaus. So, I created the FASTer Way to Fat Loss program and haven’t looked back since.  

Over the last year and a half, I have tweaked, adjusted and improved the FASTer Way to Fat Loss until I could wholeheartedly say it was the very best program on the market.

After countless rounds, and thousands of women who’ve achieved incredible results, I know beyond the shadow of a doubt that this program can get results that last in a way no other program can.

However…

I am always looking for ways to make the FASTer Way better, more accessible and easier to incorporate into a busy lifestyle. That’s why I am so excited to be offering the FASTer Way to Fat Loss Cookbook, and the FASTer Way to Fat Loss Juice cleanse.

The FASTer Way Cookbook seemed like a natural next step for the FASter Way program. Our carb and calorie cycle is not only incredibly effective, but is also incredibly flexible. However, I know that coming up with meals that fit into your macro goals for the day can be time consuming at the beginning.

Flexibility of the FASTer Way

Flexibility of the FASTer Way

As I sit here on the beach in Cancun, I could not be more thankful for the FASTer Way lifestyle I’ve been living for the last year. While the diet industry preaches low-fat, low calorie, restrictive diets that are incredibly rigid, the FASTer Way offers me and my clients incredible freedom while moving us towards our goals.

My clients see results in every season, and in every stage of life. This has become even more evident to me as I sit here enjoying my vacation, buffets and all, while sticking to the program.

I’ve enjoyed plenty of dessert, a few cocktails and some delicious meals, all without any guilt. I didn’t have to crash diet before my trip, and I won’t have to crash diet after. I’ve simply made a few simple adjustments to the FASTer Way program and have been feeling incredible during our time here in Cancun.

Here are a few ways this highly effective program offers me and my clients flexibility.

My eating window is flexible.

While on vacation, I can move my eating window/fasting window to suit the day’s activities. If we are going to enjoy a big dinner, than I shorten my eating window and eat dinner guilt free. If I’m feeling like the breakfast buffet looks too good to pass up, I move my eating window up a little earlier. I can tweak my schedule while on vacation so I never feel deprived, but never get off track.

My daily cycle is flexible.

The FASTer Way to Fat Loss is based on a 7 day cycle that includes low carb days, low calorie days and training days. Each day has specific guidelines regarding macro counts and workouts. While on vacation, I can arrange my days to best suit our vacation plans. This brings huge amounts of freedom, and once again allows me to enjoy my trip while keeping my nutrition and workouts tight.

My workouts are flexible.

The FASTer Way has at home workouts, gym workouts and sprint workouts. They are simple, straightforward and don’t require any fancy equipment. Even a hotel gym can provides enough of the needed equipment for my FASTer Way workouts. Plus, the workouts never take more than 40 minutes, so I don’t have to miss out on any of my precious beach time to squeeze a workout in!

Ladies, you don’t have to spend hours in the gym following some rigid plan that dictates every single calorie. You can live your life, vacations and all, while sticking to your goals. The FASTer Way is so effective because it allows women to eat the things they love, and adjust the program to meet their needs.

While there is a significant amount of science and intentionality behind the design of this program, it also offers lots of wiggle room. You don’t have to go through seasons of crash dieting to meet your goal before a trip or event, only to find yourself bingeing once that trip or event arrives. Instead you can live a lifestyle of freedom and flexibility while feeling completely in control of your food choices and crushing your goals.

Ready to take the leap and finally join the FASTer Way? I promise you will not regret it. Thousands of women have gone through the FASTer Way and seen unbelievable results. Not only do they lose inches and get leaner, but they regularly report feeling stronger and more energized.


The next round starts March 27th and is almost sold out. Don’t wait to join us, or spots may be gone.

Reasons to Consider Going Dairy Free

Reasons to Consider Going Dairy Free

Women are often surprised to find that a major component of my FASTer Way to Fat Loss program is that I ask my clients to try a dairy-free lifestyle. While many don’t go completely dairy free, most do their best to cut back on dairy products during the program. I am regularly asked the reasoning behind this, and wanted to share some of my thoughts to help readers make an informed decision. A major tenant of the FASTer Way program is that I truly desire for women to feel in control of their food choices. In order to truly be in control, we must educate ourselves about what we put into our bodies.

While everyone reacts differently to dairy, I truly believe everyone will see an improved quality of life when cutting back on dairy, or cutting out dairy completely.

Here are a few things to consider regarding dairy products:

Cow’s milk is for cows.

Cows produce milk for the same reason humans do: to feed their young. The nutrients in a mother’s milk is perfect nutrition for a baby cow, just as a human mother’s milk is perfect nutrition for a human baby. However, last time I checked, humans did not have the same nutritional needs as baby cows...so we probably don’t need mama cows to give our bodies what they need.

Milk contains a lot more than milk!

A significant amount of antibiotics are given to cows to prevent them from getting infections. Those antibiotics filter into a cow’s milk supply, tainting what we find in our cups and cereal bowls. In addition, cows in the U.S. are pumped full of growth hormones, which, when consumed by humans, raises our IGF-1 levels. Increased IGF-1 levels have been linked to prostate, colon, lung and breast cancers. When you pour yourself a glass of milk, you are pouring a little bit of milk, and a significant amount of hormones and antibiotics.

Milk causes digestive issues.

While this isn’t true across the board, it is true for many! According to Dr. Mark Hyman, “About 75 percent of the world’s population is genetically unable to properly digest milk and other dairy products — a problem called lactose intolerance.” I cannot tell you how many women report feeling less bloated and experiencing fewer digestive problems after cutting out dairy during the FASTer Way program.

Dairy doesn’t strengthen bones.

Wait, what...did I just write that? Yes! In her article about going dairy free, Alisa Fleming cites a well known study saying, “According to the landmark Harvard study of approximately 78,000 female nurses, women who consumed greater amounts of calcium from dairy foods had a significantly increased risk of hip fractures, while no increase in fracture risk was observed for the same levels of calcium intake from non-dairy sources.”

This wasn’t the only study to stumble upon these findings. Several other studies conducted over the years have shown countries with the highest rates of osteoporosis are also the highest consumers of dairy.

Many women ask if the issue I have is truly with dairy, or with the manipulation of dairy in today’s market. This leaves the door open for both organic or raw milk as alternatives to the modified milk we find in grocery stores. However, I truly believe milk is meant to be consumed by baby cows. Most of us stop producing lactase--the enzyme responsible for breaking down lactose--by the age of 5. Our bodies aren’t meant to consume milk much longer than when we are weaned.

With so many great-tasting, viable, healthy dairy replacement options on the market, I challenge you to give a dairy-free lifestyle a try! I am certain you will find some alternatives you love, and that the benefits to how you feel far outweigh the love you have for all things dairy.


Want to join the next round of my FASTer Way to Fat Loss program and join the thousands of women who have burned fat, increased their energy and regained control of the way they eat? My next round starts March 27th. Don’t wait as spots go incredibly quickly, and I will only be accepting a limited number of women!
