Nutrition is 80% of the battle! No 'diet' will ever sustain you. We must learn about our individual body, what nourishes it and what doesn't, and understand our relationship with food. Stress, anxiety, fear, and negative self talk can powerfully affect our hormones and deplete the metabolism, deregulate appetite, and impair healing of the body.
Certain foods we eat can also make our hormones go out of balance, which can lead to inflammation in the body, and cause gut and digestion issues, pains in the body, and eventually injury and disease.
Every body is different and needs to be assessed differently. Learning how to make balanced, nutritious meals isn't difficult, it just takes a bit of analyzing, planning, and consistent effort. The media, marketing, and the food industry DO NOT make this an easy task.
Get EDUCATED about nutrition and your body and stop riding the diet roller coaster.

Provide nutrition education and information about nutrient deficiencies, protein, carbohydrates, and fats.
Understand what a balanced meal requires and how to make one.
Understand your body type and how proteins, carbohydrates, and fats affect it.
Gain an understanding of how hormones affect our metabolism, weight loss, and weight gain.
Offer advice, tips and guidance with food preparation and planning simple, efficient and healthy meals.

Your coach will check in weekly with you to progress to the next steps, answer questions, offer advice, tips, guidance and on-going support in alignment with your goals, by phone or virtually.
