The What IF? Diet Plan (Limited Series)

The What IF? Diet Plan (Limited Series)

By Alexis Cano
As a working mother of three, I know the challenges that women face in making their own health a priority. My goal is to help others realize that they are not alone in their struggles and that every problem can be overcome with the right mindset.

I’ve struggled with weight and hunger issues ever since childhood and always thought there was something wrong with me. Turns out my body was just responding to learned eating habits.

Join me as I take you through my personal journey of weight gain, fad dieting, poor body image, and how discovering intermittent fasting changed my life.

Ep 11:Pick Your Path, Not Your Poison

The What IF? Diet Plan (Limited Series)

Ep 11:Pick Your Path, Not Your Poison
I've titled today's episode "Pick Your Path, Not Your Poison" because I really want to emphasize the importance of paving your own path to better health, rather than trying to do what works for other people. We often look to the past or to someone else who has successfully lost weight and try to adopt the methods that led to their success, even if those methods don't work for us.

Ep: 4 Catching Sneaky Beliefs
In this week's episode, I’ll be talking all about beliefs! What are beliefs? When is something a belief or a circumstance that we can’t change? How we can challenge our beliefs?
