The snow is melting here in Brooklyn, but I made sure to fill up the birdfeeder today. Those little birdies need some human support in the winter, and they even eat some of the same stuff I do! You know, millet, seeds, etc.
I eat a lot more variety than that, of course, and I’m not into eating bugs.
I focus my meals around those same whole, natural foods that a lot of other animals enjoy, and I’ve learned a lot from watching them eat over the years, like…
Animals don’t count calories.
You know what I’m saying?
We humans are the only creatures who are confused about what to eat. Animals don’t look to experts, and they don’t measure anything. They just eat when they’re hungry, stop when they’re full, and eat what’s in season and appropriate for their bodies.
The birds make it all seem so easy.
But I believe it can be easy.
I believe food is one of the best parts about being human,
and that when we listen to our bodies, I mean really listen,
food and health make sense.
So I NEVER count calories.
First of all, it makes me crazy. Secondly, it doesn’t work.
I tell my clients to stop counting calories, and instead coach them in how to feel what kind and how much food they need.
That really works!
And it’s such a revelation for the people who get it, that it fixes their
relationship with food.
I recently met up with Jonathan Bailor, a total science and food geek, and author of the Calorie Myth. Jonathan and I talked about cravings, calories, and how we can all eat easier and better.
I hope you’ll listen in – these free classes are amazing resources for transforming your health and life.

What I ALWAYS DO – No GMOs
I haven’t counted a calorie in decades, but I do look at ingredient labels.
Not for grams and carbs, but for genetically modified organisms.
Yup, I don’t eat GMOs.
It’s alarming how GMO’s are in EVERYTHING! Even health food stores and “natural foods.”
In getting my clients well, I often help them remove inflammatory foods from their diets to reduce pain, digestive disorders, allergies, and move the needle on weight loss resistance.
Most people are not aware of the severe impact GMO can have on the brain and digestive system, especially for children.
And one of the strongest voices speaking out against GMO foods, and FOR GMO labeling, is my dear friend Jeffrey Smith, founder of the Institute for Responsible Technology. IRT has created a profound video that I’d like you to watch, all about what you can do to help this growing movement:
Help Get GMO Labeling:
Want to avoid buying GMOs?
So, now you know.
What I never do? Count calories.
What I always do? Eat GMO-free food.
Simple, easy, healthy, sane.
