Have you ever wondered why Americans are more overweight than people from other countries?
You might have guessed some of the reasons: huge portion sizes, little exercise, too much sugary foods, no mindful eating, stress, etc.
To me, however, there is one factor that plays a key role here: the American food manufacturing industry.
Not only the ingredients of the processed food are addictive, but they are also the worst thing you could eat in terms of your weight management.
This is one of the questions that I frequently get from students, clients and even in social media: can I have breakfast cereal if I am trying to lose weight?
And it makes sense. Because on one hand, you are chased with the idea that you have to eat breakfast if you are trying to lose weight, but on the other, you don’t have the time to prepare it and therefore you wonder if breakfast cereal could be a good option for you.
But first things first. If you are still not sure whether you need to have breakfast if you are trying to lose weight and/or what makes a good breakfast, you can check my blog: what's the best breakfast I can have?
Now, if you think that breakfast cereal could be an easy option for you, let me help you understand what makes a good breakfast cereal and how to choose the right one for you.
Recently, I had the pleasure to be interviewed by Jacques Hopkins. If you are interested in learning a bit more about me, what I do, my believes, my commitment to my students and my confidence that I can help you have a better life if you let me teach you how, I think you should listen to the interview.
This is how Jacques introduced me:
"Not too long ago I had the pleasure of having Arantxa Mateo come on the show to discuss her online course business. There are a lot of weight loss plans and diets out there, but she has a different approach to the concept of weight management. Arantxa is very invested in her students’ success, and it was great to speak with her about her online course. Along the way, we chatted about some challenges specific to her niche and some advice that will be useful no matter what you plan to teach in your own course!"
People are not looking for perfection. They are looking for you to solve their problem.

GUEST POST by Scott Reid
One of the choices when looking at using a protein powder as a help to lose weight is which type to go for. The main choice is generally between whey-based protein and plant-based protein powder, however there are many aspects to consider.
A lot of people than want to use protein powder as a help to lose weight, can’t tolerate whey protein for various reasons, including bloating and potential allergy problems. Plant-based protein powder can be the perfect option for those who can’t use whey for that reason.
However, there are also many other benefits which you get from a plant-based protein powder that you cannot get from any animal-based protein product, including fibre content and some types of vitamins and minerals.
In this guest blog post, author Scott Reid offers you a quick run-down on six of the key benefits of choosing a plant-based powder.
