Please remember that we are living stressful times. We are adapting by creating a new routine; hence, it is only expected that our eating habits will change.
The emotions we are feeling such as stress, anxiety, loneliness, boredom, confusion – only to cite a few – will make us eat more. It is normal.
Now is not the time to take drastic measures to lose weight. It will only increase stress, frustration, pressure while compromising our immunity.
In these trying times, we have to be kind with ourselves. We need to eat healthy and nourish our bodies in order to feel strong physically & mentally.
Don’t hesitate to reach out if I can be of any support
I felt pressured since the beginning of the lockdown to be productive, work more, take new challenges…

In these times of struggle and uncertainty, one of the best thing you can do is to take time to connect with yourself, listen to what your body and mind truly want and do it.
If you feel like training every day, then do it. However, if the pressure of doing nothing is pushing you to train, please don’t. It will only increase anxiety and stress, and this is the last thing you need right now.
Now is the perfect time to find peace
In the light of the current situation, here are some healthy foods you can store at home.
Please stock up responsibly; since we are taking care of each other, we should also remember that we are all in this together when shopping for groceries. Buy the quantities you need and restock in 2 weeks.

Please remember that dieting and restricting food are the fuel to emotional eating.
Trust & listen to your body by providing what it truly needs.
