Hey there! My name is Lauren Elise, and I’m the woman behind Health and Happy Hour!
I’m going to keep this brief because I want this blog to be about YOU – not me.
The goal of this blog is to help guide YOU through the journey to happy and healthy weight loss – and the total mind and body transformation you seek.
I run this website with my busines partner, Alex, who is a certified personal trainer (CSCS, NESTA, ISSA, Cooper) and we are both incredibly passionate about helping others become the healthiest versions of themselves.
I was previously a very strict vegan for two years (mostly raw, gluten-free, no processed foods — yeah, pretty strict). I didn’t do it for the animals or for the environment, although I think that those are GREAT causes. I did it for health and dieting reasons and to learn what it was all about.
I enjoyed it for a time, but it was ultimately too restrictive and low-calorie for me (I have minor reactions to the best sources of healthy fats – avocados and nuts).
In addition to being a vegan, I have also tried the Paleo diet, Whole 30 Diet, and everything in between. I have learned a LOT along the way, and it’s from these experiences that I co-authored multiple weight loss programs with my business partner, Alex.
