    How to Develop a Healthy Relationship with the Scale for More Consistent and Happier Weight Loss

    How to Develop a Healthy Relationship with the Scale for More Consistent and Happier Weight Loss

    If I had to place a bet, I'd put some money down on the fact that the scale determines your mood. When you hop on the scale to weigh-in or check-in and it doesn't say what you want it to, what do you do?
    Start talking cash money $h!t to yourself?Get in a funky mood for the rest of the day?Fight the urge to restrict even MORE to get it to budge?Tell yourself “well if I'm doing all this and not losing weight, might as well eat how I REALLY want to eat?” 
    Probably, all of the above at one point right?
    You aren't alone.
    Years ago, I use to live and die by what the scale said. It had SO much power over me, and if didn't validate my hard work, I sabotaged my own weight loss.
    It wasn't until I learned what I'm about to teach you in this podcast that my weight loss got easier, more consistent, and FUN. Yeah, you heard me. My weight loss journey became fun.

    Why You Aren't Losing Weight

    Why You Aren't Losing Weight

    Years ago, I was really good at losing 5-10 pounds like a boss. Want to know something else though? I was really good at gaining it right back like a boss too. 
    I thought the reason my weight loss was stalled had everything to do with how perfect my food was. So I tried to double down on never eating “junk food” and being as perfect as I could.
    But it wasn't about my food.
    When I realized my plateaus and stalls had almost everything to do with how I was optimizing my weight loss, I finally lost the 20 pounds I had been struggling to lose for what felt like an eternity. 
    Whether you want to lose 5 pounds or 100. Today's episode I'll walk you through 3 of the top reasons that are keeping you stuck in your weight loss, and get you well on your way to your next milestone.

Truly inspiring!

I found your Instagram first when looking up meal prep plans and so happy to have found your podcast! I’ve been on a weight loss journey on and off over the past few years and have had the most difficult time losing and keeping weight off. Over the last couple of years I’ve been dealing with anxiety and depression so it’s been difficult trying to regulate my schedule. Now I’m in a place mentally that I’m able to put focus on this part of my life and I love your little nuggets! Developing my morning routine is slowly but surely helping me accomplish my health goals! Keep sharing your gift 🙏🏾thank you!

Eat these Chicken nuggets, they go quick.

I first watched Shantel on Instagram. I enjoyed seeing her food choices and swaps. Then I saw she had a podcast, so her I am. I have listened to 6 or 7 since yesterday. I love some chicken nuggets and they usually are gone too fast. Her videos are the same, they are short with multiple bite sized pieces of gold.

Fav podcast right now!

I don’t listen to podcast often but now that I have listened to this one daily I love it! I make an effort to listen and tune in when I’m going for a walk or cooking dinner as she had dropped sooooo many gems and what I love is the representation from a black woman who is a nutritionist who is out here to advocate, help and support us black women to get our gut microbiomes together but also our mental health. I can’t wait to try this program and see how it works for me after hearing how motivating Shantal has been and just sharing her own experiences about how to achieve better overall health goals on top of weight loss and not having to go through major extremes to get there…there’s so much I could say but thank you for this! I will continue to tune in!
