Izzy Camilleri invites you to swap your resolutions for intentions this new year
Canadian fashion designer and author shares tips on mindful eating and other sustainable lifestyle habits
‘Tis the season of indulgence and celebration! One that typically leaves us looking to start the new year with a fresh slate. From shedding weight on a fad diet, to embarking on a new fitness regime, we’re all guilty of setting high expectations for the person we want to be when the calendar hits January 1.
Instead of making goals with tight timelines and unsustainable habits, Izzy Camilleri suggests changing our mindset to live a life of intention. Entrepreneur, mother, fashion designer and author, she knows a thing or two about struggling to meet unrealistic health goals while balancing a multi-career lifestyle. When she freed herself from restricting diets and harsh expectations, she discovered true health and happiness through eating with intention.
“All of my life I spent years on the diet roller coaster of reaching my ideal weight, and eventually falling back into old eating habits,” said Izzy Camilleri, author of Izzy’s Eating Plan. “When I discovered the concept of eating intentionally and using food’s nutrients to target the different areas of my body, I was ultimately able to find the healthiest version of myself - and sustain it!”
