We've Moved!

Hello and thank you for following me over the years! Sequins and Sushi is now Full Permission Nutrition – still me posting recipes, articles, life thoughts, etc. just in a new location with a new name! I am officially a Registered Dietitian now and am hoping to incorporate some counseling services through my website, so I wanted a name that was more indicative of what I do and what I wish to achieve through my blog.

Please follow on my journey by checking out my new site  – fullpermissionnutrition.com 

Thank you and see you there!

Why You Should Stop Trying to Lose Weight

Hi there! I have been very MIA recently as I am in the final few months (ahhh!) of my dietetic internship as well as my master’s degree. Time has certainly flown and I have already learned SO MUCH. I can’t wait to venture into the nutrition field and use all I have learned to help others!

Why You Should Stop Trying to Lose Weight

I wanted to pop in and quickly share this article. I feel it’s a great “starting point” for those who are questioning diets, as you should, showing that there is real scientific evidence behind why a weight-focused approach to health is not helpful (and is actually harmful!) My favorite quote from the article was:

“Abandoning weight loss as a goal — taking it off the table completely — and refocusing on personally meaningful, healthy behaviors seems like our best shot at true wellness.”

Amen to that! Give the article a read and comment to let me know what you think.
