Taco’s back from his fulfilling—and mildly chaotic—trip to India, and after catching us all up with the details of his trek he and Mandy tackle a subject that a lot of people are sensitive to at this time of year: dieting. Right around now, people start falling off the diet they resolved to stick to for New Year’s, but rather that being due to a lack of willpower it could be because the diet itself is not sustainable and conflicts with one’s eating disposition. This is why we’re advocating for intuitive eating, which grooves better with how each person eats and doesn’t get caught up in the statistical minutiae of other highly touted diets.
In our chat, we discuss the 10 core principles of intuitive eating, how we all have different eating personalities—as well as how those personalities affect dieting—and why couples need to be careful when one or both of them are on a diet.
There’s a new trend when it comes to dieting, and this is definitely one “diet” trend I can get on board with. This trend is no diet at all. As a couple, this is an opportunity to work together to create a positive atmosphere for food in your home. Welcome to Intuitive Eating for Couples.

Happy New Year! Resolutions are flying high this time of year. Taco and Mandy discuss why you should NOT make resolutions and instead set goals to work on as a couple. Learn 10 goals you can set as a couple this year and how to make them successful.
Happy New Year! With the new year here, members of a couple may make their own new years resolutions of things they want to change about themselves individually. The problem is, we all know resolutions don’t typically hold strong. Often they fall short because there’s no plan associated with them. Many can also be lacking accountability. Last year, I posed the question of what you can be doing MORE of in the new year. I encourage you to continue using the idea of MORE versus less or restrictions. As a couple, consider setting goals you can work on together to increase accountability and success.
