If you’re here, you’re probably a lot like me and are tired of all the diet fads popping up and promising quick fixes (when in the past they set you back a few steps).
If you’re tired of the false promises and depriving yourself of the foods you love then you have come to the right place.
For those who don’t know me, my name is Randa Derkson. I’m a Certified Holistic Nutritionist, a Culinary Nutrition Expert, a Certified Sports Nutrition Consultant, and a former fad dieter.
I’m here to teach you realistic nutrition.
What’s realistic nutrition?
Realistic nutrition is knowing that your two year old is probably not going to eat your kale and endive salad, but maybe they’ll try enjoy some chopped veggies. It’s knowing you can enjoy a slice or two of pizza with your family but serving it with a side salad (or raw veggies) so you don’t overeat and feel gross after.
It’s making smart swaps in your baking by reducing your sugar (even just by 1/4 cup) or changing the recipe to work with your nutritional goals.
Most importantly, it’s education that food is not moral. It’s not good or bad and I’m going to show you that you can have a cupcake at a birthday and it won’t undo your progress. Enjoy that cupcake…then continue to eat as you normally would!
I’m here to help you establish healthier habits while still living your life.
All foods fit, and to get started I recommend checking out the macro guide above. It’s a great resource to get started to seeing foods as what it is – food. Delicious food that can both entertain your tastebuds and serve your body.
