Coffee & Kettlebells

Jul 26, 2019

I have two questions for you: 

When trying to lose weight, do you focus on eating as little as possible? Or, do you think eating healthier means eating less?  

If I had to guess, most of you answered yes to either one or both of those questions. Whether it may seem serious or not, focusing on eating as little as possible IS an eating disorder! Plus, it leads to countless health issues that can take years to recover from. In this episode of Coffee & Kettlebells, I chat with Amanda Meixner, meal prep maven, nutrition guru, social media influencer and the mastermind behind the Meow Meix blog, who struggled with anorexia for years. Amanda shares why starving yourself is not the answer to getting the body you want and why it's actually the worse route you can take for losing weight. Amanda shares how we can lose weight while still eating enough food to fuel our body properly...crazy, right?!
