One of the greatest challenges causing smart, successful, put-together women significant amounts of stress, anxiety and worry, is their diet...and more specifically, their weight. They’re plagued by thoughts about what they eat and how the extra fifteen (or even five) pounds is holding them back from achieving their dreams. This is defeating for them because they’ve tried EVERYTHING and they’re starting to believe there’s something wrong with THEM. The mental and emotional drain is exhausting.
This was Cassie’s story. She tried to be “good” too: restricting calories, working out like a maniac, and still, PUTTING ON 20 POUNDS! Cassie’s whole life changed when she shifted her mindset, reset her metabolism, and focused on specific factors that most weight loss experts aren’t talking about, like hormones, thyroid, stress, and supplements.
Over the past decade, Cassie has helped thousands of women not just lose weight and boost their energy levels and body confidence, but create lives they love by freeing themselves from old ideas and myths.
Cassie provides valuable insight on nutrition, weight, and overall health in a fun, exciting way! She brings her decade of knowledge of nutrition and weight loss, along with her depth of personal experience and her own compelling story.
