For many of us, fitness and nutrition are about what we look like and how we feel.
We have countless people entering FitELITE with the intention of losing weight. Many people have tried diets, that haven’t worked. That leads to frustration. (Check out The FitELITE Podcast Episode 9 where we talk about the difference between a diet and a lifestyle.)
Well, I want to get this out of the way first...there is no perfect diet that fits all people. We are all different. We have different needs, different DNA, different social and cultural backgrounds, and different experiences. I’ll save that discussion for a different day.

Adding before subtracting has many benefits!
So, you want to make a change, but you’re tired of all the restrictions. Start adding more whole food to your meals and you’ll see some pretty amazing changes!
