For today’s update, we have two excellent meal ideas from Nancy H (with the help of Stacy Goldberg, of course).

For breakfast it’s cantaloupe, Fage non fat Greek yogurt, topped with The Healthy Nut Almonds and served with a non-fat cappuccino.

“I found out at my consultation yesterday that I am still short on my daily goals for fiber and protein…so I’m starting the day with both and in a way that tastes great! Also, Stacy suggested that some of my allergy symptoms could be aggravated by dairy and I’m working on cutting back.”


And Nancy’s healthy lunch: chicken salad made with Light Lemonaise (a great alternative to mayo) and lentils for protein and fiber. Instead of cappuccino, mint tea with lots of lemon and ginger added to soothe a sore throat.

Good work Nancy on coming up with a creative way to make a classic meal a healthy one!

Stacy Goldberg’s Nutrition Tip

A great nutrition tip from Stacy Goldberg of What’s In Your Cart?:

“Pick a good nutrition magazine, cookbook, or something to read to give you inspiration. Some of my favorites are: Nutrition Action Magazine, Clean Eating Magazine, VegNews.  Jillian Michaels Master Your Metabolism Cookbook and Rocco DiSpirito makes a great cookbook with lower calorie comfort food recipes. I also love Kris Carrs Crazy Sexy Diet & Gwenyth Paltrows Cookbooks!”

Weight Loss Challenge

As many of you already know, a few staff members and Equilibrium clients are participating in a Weight Loss Challenge, combining exercise with nutritional advice from Stacy Goldberg. The challenge is just beginning and here is what participant, Maureen, on why she’s taking the challenge:

“Ultimately, I want to take this challenge to lose 15 pounds and understand the relationship between food and exercise. I want to know how I can use food to boost my metabolism and therefore, increase my energy to workout more efficiently.”

YAY Maureen! Good luck, we know you’ll do great.

(Everyone can look forward to updates from Maureen on how her challenge is going…)

Equilibrium Wants To Help You Lose Weight

Nancy Talk 

Nancy and Oliver

Thank you for letting me share my favorite things with you.

In addition to my family, friends, studio, music, exercise, food, education, books, and movies, I am passionate about progress, change, and new developments at the studio.

March is National Nutrition Month and as you know equilibrium now has a staff nutritionist, Stacy Goldberg, founder of What’s In Your Cart? and her newest company, Savorfull.

I invited a small group to join me in a Studio Weight Loss Challenge.

Six team members and two clients committed to sharing their stories, pictures, successes, and anything else they learn from this journey to better nutrition and better health. A few examples of our statements:

“I am excited to incorporate healthier eating habits along with the fitness classes I have been taking at Equilibrium to get me in great shape for my wedding this summer! Making nutrition and fitness an important part of my everyday life will help keep me in shape long after the wedding!” Mary, Client Service Manager

“I am looking forward to learning  about the food I eat, giving up pop, and losing 15-20 pounds in a healthy way.”
Jenn, Staff Instructor

“I would like to lose 6-8lbs. during the weight loss challenge, learn to control my sugar cravings and help balance my hormones.”
Amy, Senior Instructor

There are more that we will share this month on Facebook and at the studio.

Here is my personal statement of intent:

” Since going through menopause it has been increasingly difficult to lose weight so I want to take this challenge to lose 8-10 pounds which will reduce my risk of heart disease and diabetes, diseases that run in my family.”

Ask yourself today, am I at the healthiest weight for my age, genetics and gender?

If your answer is no, or even probably not, you owe yourself a comprehensive nutritional analysis of your health history and your five day food journal, a wonderful service offered by WhatsInYourCart at the studio.
Schedule a private consultation with Stacy Goldberg in our new private Nutrition Office.

What do you have to lose except some weight and anxiety over the extra weight?

Your family members who do not exercise at the studio are also encouraged to use our Nutritional Services, including adolescents and teens

And don’t forget that if you or anyone in your family suffers from food allergies, Stacy Goldberg has a specialized program just for you.

If you are ready to take the next step, please call Mary at the studio to get started.

Warm Regards,
