Introducing "Girl... Don't Do It!" My New Food Tips Show
I'm so excited to announce my new food tips show, Girl… Don't Do It!
It used to be solely on Instagram, but now that my YouTube channel has launched (#YAAASS) it will now live on YouTube!
So how the show works is that every other week I will review a new trendy “health” food, and using the knowledge that I learned about my body from Fitness Genes, I will determine if eating this food would be a “YAAASS QUEEN” or a “Girl… Don't Do It.”
I developed this show because I know that so many of us try to eat right, but often don't see results we are looking for.
One of the hardest things about eating right that I have learned over the years is that the word “healthy” has now become a marketing tool.
Unfortunately, it is no longer health conscious enough to just pick up a food that has been branded with these enticing words. Marketers are very aware that people will settle with eating foods that give off the impression of being healthy, and that they won't dig deeper.
And this could be what is hindering your results (especially if you are someone like me who loved exercising, but couldn't see a difference in their body no matter how often I worked out.
While at BuzzFeed, I was part of a short-lived series called The Test Friends where we tried different health/fitness/wellness trends. For this episode, we tried cardio ballet barre for 5 weeks, and I only lost 3 lbs despite going to class 3-4 times a week.
But I know what you're thinking; "I have so much other shit going on in my life that the idea of having to take the time to pick through the so-called "healthy" food to actually see if its healthy just feels like too damn much."
So I decided to help my fellow Queens out, and do all of the digging for you!
So I hope you tune in every other Tuesday to figure out if the new health food that you were thinking about buying is a “YAAASS QUEEN” or a “Girl… Don't Do It.”
If you have any ideas or suggestions about foods that I should review, please feel free to either hit me up on social media, or send an email over to email@example.com with the subject line, “Girl… Don't Do It Submission.”
So excited to help you learn how to make healthy food choices!
In love, peace, and unapologetic healthiness,
