FOCUS ON NUTRITION
40% carbohydrates, 30% healthy fat, and 30% healthy and lean protein. Be sure you’re getting these 3 macronutrients in all of your meals. Try to eat 3 meals and no more than 5 per day. Eliminate grazing, snacking and eating your kid’s left overs..

I can’t stress this enough. Stress is natural and it’s a natural part of life. It would be unrealistic for me to tell you not to stress but instead, figure out a way to manage it more effectively so that you can get the rest you need every night. Hire a therapist, go for a walk, write in a journal…
With love, health and happiness,
