What is the key to success during travel?...8:50
You want to have confidence and feel your best when you are on vacation, which is precisely why Lynn chooses to go off plan at home. Your reward is not food, but it’s how you feel. You want to be energized and confident. Regardless of how you look, if you are eating right, you feel in control and that conveys confidence. This confidence is more beautiful than any body part! When everything is spinning out of control or if you can’t do anything about certain things, you can control what you eat.

Lynn knew she couldn’t change everything about her life. She chose low carb because someone once told her she could eat as much as she wanted as long as she stayed under certain numbers. She knew she wouldn’t have to starve herself and she could eat whenever and wherever she wanted. All she had to do to change were her decisions. This freedom allows her to be flexible when her days get busy.

Lynn was an emotional eater and sometimes her job and life get stressful. This leads her to be very picky with her time. What makes it all worth it are the stories she hears from people. She sees life changes in people in the forms of food, fertility, chronic pain, stress, sicknesses, confidence…you name it!
