Vicki Manuel: on making healthier food choices

moving the podcast – chat from August 13, 2013

~~~

Health Coach Vicki Manuel is back! Today we talk about making the switch to healthier eating habits. Vicki covers the importance of reading labels and moving away from man-made ingredients, and explains how some “diet” foods may actually be working against you. She also tells us where you can start if you’re ready to make changes in your own food choices.

moving the podcast – interview from June 19, 2013

~~~

I wasn’t sure what to expect when I asked my friend Vicki to be my health coach. And even now, having gone through the sessions, it’s hard for me to explain what she does. It’s a very personalized and individual process, and I imagine no two experiences are quite the same.

For me, it was coaching my thoughts more than my behaviors. Vicki helped me change my perspective, giving me a clear picture of the positives in myself and the steps I am taking.

We talk about that changed mind-set in this interview; actually, I think I mentioned it about three different times. It really is amazing to me what a great thing a little positive thinking can be.
