Just look around and you’ll see that the most common approach to nutrition and weight loss in Nanaimo – eating less and exercising more – doesn’t work. Media images that portray what a body should look like have all too many of us chasing impossible standards of perfection. Nutrition experts continuously contradict one another and leave everyone confused. We’re overloaded with information, but undernourished when it comes to true healing wisdom. Everyone has a different motivation for losing weight. An upcoming wedding, spending more time with your children, improving your overall health, increasing energy levels, or just because you want to look and feel better. There is hope. You CAN change. And I can help you make those changes. It’s time for a change.
Educate. Act. Transform! Where education meets transformation and you take back your power and freedom to choose. Progress not perfection through teaching NOT telling. I believe that Real Food, as nature intended, provides the medicine we need to obtain and maintain a state of health.
Weight loss coaching is the use of personal coaching techniques to bring about long term weight loss. A coach will help you to set realistic goals for weight loss and develop a plan to attain the goals. This plan can include actions, research and education. The coach will help to consolidate all the ideas of the individual into steps which take them towards losing weight. This is not a menu plan or diet. The coach does not tell the individual what to eat and how. That is for the individual to determine once they have developed their plan.
Don’t put yourself “on a diet"
Dieting tricks your body into thinking you’re in a famine state. Your biochemistry and hormones then become altered and you go into fat storage mode, just like an animal preparing to hibernate for the winter. FAT stands for “famine” and “temperature”, and when your FAT programs are on, you crave food uncontrollably, well past your daily intake needs. Worse still, the more you diet, the more efficient your body becomes at storing fat, and the more difficult it becomes to lose the weight. It’s the ultimate catch-22. Dieting, by definition, actually makes you fatter; and everyone who has tried and failed to lose weight knows this from first-hand experience. If you need to lose 20, 40 or even 100lbs or more; and if you’ve tried and failed at dieting; it means your biological FAT Switch is on and your body thinks it needs excess weight in order to keep you safe. Calorie shortage will slow down your metabolism, making it tougher to build muscle and lose fat. You need to implant permanent change in your lifestyle.
