As A Health Coach…
I truly believe that we are all individuals that have completely different needs. Our bodies, backgrounds, digestive tracks, physical and emotional stamina are like our fingerprints. They belong to us and only us. It’s called bio-individuality and it’s why no one way of eating or living works for everyone. Vegetarianism may work for some, but leave others feeling weak and lethargic and the Paleo diet may be right for many, but leave others dealing with weak immune systems.
As a Health Coach, I work with every client as a unique individual with very individual needs. I take a completely holistic approach, considering my client’s family history, personal history, ethnic background, food sensitivities and constitution. We work together closely to improve not just diet, but fitness level, relationships, career and every aspect of life that helps create a healthy balance. For when our lives are balanced and happy, we are much more likely to make better food choices.
Of course I work with all types of people that need my support, but I specialize in working with parents who are struggling to make the right nutritional decisions for themselves and their children. Ideally, kids would eat every nutritious meal we set in front of them, but we know the reality. There are many parents out there that are overjoyed just to get their kids to eat something other than chicken nuggets and bagel bites. I’ve talked to so many moms and dads that feel it’s one of the most difficult parts of being a parent. Sometimes it feels as if they are all alone in their struggle and that they are failing somehow as a parent. So, I’m here as part of their team. To motivate and cheer them on, every step of the way.
My Six Month Program:
Why is my program six months long? Bad habits don’t go away overnight. Ever tried to quit smoking or stop drinking coffee? Did cold turkey work for you? If it did, bravo!! If not, you might understand that sometimes you need to take baby steps in order to make the transition more tolerable which actually gives you a much better chance of kicking the habit once and for all. Also, if you’ve ever been on any diet that required you to drastically change your way of eating all at once, you know that it’s pretty much doomed to fail. Both of these scenarios may make you feel like a failure and you are much more likely to fall back into your old routines. A six month program allows you to take things at a pace that is not too jarring to your physical or mental comfort. You will set your own personal goals at every session and you have me there to hold you accountable and motivate you to keep achieving those goals.
