Stellar Mommies Talk Fad Diets!

Posted by     on February 7, 2019

Each one of us at Stellar Health and Wellness understand that most people would love to look better or feel better. It would be amazing to simply take a ‘magic pill’ that can melt the excess fat off our bodies in a short amount of time without exercising or changing your diet. Realistically, these ‘magic pills’ or other diet fads do not actually work, and they do not fix the habits that cause us to accumulate extra body fat. The best way to feel good and look good is to focus on getting healthy.

Before you start a new fad diet, ask yourself the following questions. What are you consuming? Is it real food? Can your body absorb the nutrients? What habits will you learn from this new diet?


Look at the ingredients. If you are considering taking a new supplement or dietary pill, first check out the list of ingredients. Not only may some of the ingredients be in a state that your body cannot absorb, but there may also be some ingredients that have negative effects on your health.

Avoid Soy. Soy is genetically modified and can cause leaky gut, intestinal inflammation, and mess with your hormones. Say ‘no’ to soy.

Avoid Canola Oil. Canola oil comes from rapeseed which is the main ingredient in Agent Orange! Canola oil is not a healthy choice, avoid this!

It is easy to feel alone when you are unhappy with your body. We can help! Our Functional Nutrition Counseling can teach you how to make dietary changes that will help with weight loss, decreasing inflammation, stabilizing blood sugar, lowering blood pressure, and keeping auto-immune disease at bay.
