The Big, Fat List of Diet Bloggers
Journaling is a proven way to enhance your weight loss progress.
This week we’ve compiled a big, fat list of bloggers – those inspirational women and men who write their wrongs and share great advice about healthy living so you and I can forge a better dieting experience.
When it comes to great weight loss advice, these bloggers have the right – and write – stuff!
“My name is Lisa and in my life before kids, I was a personal trainer, group fitness instructor, marathon runner, and overall fitness junkie. I woke up early to work out and I stayed up late to work out. I didn’t think much would change when I had children, so clearly I had absolutely NO IDEA what being a mommy was like! I started this blog in August 2007 shortly after the birth of my second son. Now, I am a mom of FOUR little boys and I struggle with finding the time each day to commit to my fitness and health goals.”
“Currently The Sweaty Betties are working to build a fitness empire filled with laughter and a love of fitness, helping their fans understand that to love yourself is not selfish and that fitness takes time. Danny-J is the owner of The Sweaty Betties: an ‘irreverent group of women who are looking to get fit and have a whole lot of fun along the way.’”
“My name is Christina and I created this blog to share my journey with you! If you are looking to lose weight, gain strength, eat healthy, take back your health, and/or need motivation and inspiration – then you’ve come to the right place! I suffered a loss from a very late miscarriage. This loss resulted in depression, anxiety, weight gain, and a huge body image problem. I was the unhappiest I’ve ever been and it wasn’t just affecting me – it was affecting my entire family! I knew I had to make a permanent change and so I set off on a journey to lose weight and conquer my demons to become the happy & healthy person I knew I could be.”
As a treat for you folks determined to get to or stay at a healthy weight, here is a second helping of inspirational bloggers – these great finds are courtesy of our friends at Women’s Health.
Nurse practitioner Robyn Nohling, R.D., the blogger behind The Real Life RD, proves that the mantra “everything in moderation” is actually possible to live by. Seriously, she eats cupcakes as often as she eats kale.
Erika Nicole Kendall—or Evil Fitness Barbie, as she calls herself—went from a self-proclaimed couch potato to a NASM-certified trainer who specializes in weight loss, women’s fitness, and nutrition. The “Emotional Eating” subsection of her blog, A Black Girl’s Guide To Weight Loss, is worth checking out for its unfiltered look at postpartum depression and self-care.
Rachel Turner is obsessed with breakfast food (especially toast and eggs). Her blog, Strong Chicks Rock, gives you an up-close-and-personal look at her always-evolving relationship with food and her body.
If fashion is your jam, Emmie Ho, who just happens to have lost over 100 pounds, has you covered. Authentically Emmie started as a weight-loss blog in 2009 but has since evolved into a blog about life, plus-size fashion, and fitness.
If you have a motivational blogger you follow with a passion then, by all means, share their name with us so we can include them in our next big, fat list of wellness bloggers.
John McGran has been writing about health and weight loss for several national companies since 2000. He brings his knowledge of diets — and his passion for dropping pounds — to Meal Plan Map because he believes it is the future of smart, stress-free eating and improved health.
