    Try, Try Again

    Hello! I'm new to the group and to online support groups. I have been into health and wellness since I was a teen, but I am a backslider! I have completed a rigorous detox I designed myself every year for five years now. I always feel fantastic when it's over and have the intention of eating healthy and practicing self-care. It lasts for awhile, but within a few months, I have begun slipping back...

    Hello. I understand healthy eating fairly well. I can eat healthy all day (fruits, vegetables, whole grains, proteins, etc.), but at about 7-9 PM it strikes me. Cravings for all the unhealthy junk. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to get rid of these awful cravings? I usually crave carbs and sweets at the end of the day. One trick that I have heard of and used that a lot of you could use...

    Ditching Emotional Eating

    I'm looking for daily support from others who are also needing accountability to eat mindfully. I'd love to work out some kind of daily structure for the support--i.e. regular text check-ins, or e-mailing intentions/fears/obstacles. Is anyone else interested in this?

    Think I have a problem

    I consider myself an active person, I go to the gym 4-5 times a week and I understand nutrition well. A few years ago I started eating really well and managed to lose a lot of unwanted body fat. I was looking pretty lean but over the last year I have really struggled. As long as my life is in a routine I do well, breakfast and lunch I eat good healthy food but once i finish work and go home, I...

    Healthy Eating in College

    I am currently in college.  I find that my biggest struggle is finding time to cook healthful recipes during my days that are really busy with school an dhomework and that on the weekends my friends are always inviting me to go out to eat with them which often leads to eating unhealthy food all weekend.  I love healthy eating and always do a really good job of eating well during summer breaks....

    No Clue

    I have no clue about eating healthy. I had a baby in August 2016, so I'm limited on time to make recipes. I know I need to increase my fruits and veggies and whole grains, but besides that, how do I eat healthy? Where do I start?
