What exactly is health and lifestyle coaching?

A health and lifestyle coach helps people identify and fix an ineffective lifestyle that is creating health problems such as weight gain, increased stress and anxiety, chronic medical conditions, addictions, and adjusting to life-altering health events such as a heart attack or stroke. Coaches help people by educating them on the current research, helping them problem solve ways to incorporate that evidence into a new lifestyle thats meaningful to them, and by helping keep them accountable while their new lifestyle becomes a habit.

What do you get with the coaching program?

Through participating in a health and lifestyle coaching program you will get:
1. An in-depth health and lifestyle assessment to identify problem areas in your life and create a plan of action to be carried out weekly.
2. Weekly 1-on-1 sessions to learn the evidence behind which foods and behaviors cause weight gain, problem solve ways to incorporate that evidence into your new meaningful lifestyle, and review progress made over the past week.
3. Access to an online FB group to get tips, questions answered, motivation and support daily.
4. Ability to message me (your health and lifestyle coach) daily for quick questions for your continued daily success.
5. Instant access to our pdf format recipe book with 75+ delicious recipes that will help you lose weight. All of these perks are helping you create new healthy living routines. These healthy living routines will make it easy for you to control your behaviors so that you can lose weight without the constant struggle. You will also have all of the up to date evidence regarding which foods and behaviors will help you lose fat and keep it off.

How much does it cost?

Everyone is different and will require different levels of support. This is why I request to chat with you the find out a little more about your life, your struggles, and your goals. After we will work together to identify the right level of support for your needs and will determine the cost of the program.

Is there a contract?

Yes, we will have a mandatory 4 month contract commitment. It takes time to develop new habits and routines, apply evidence based knowledge to your lifestyle, and to lose weight permantly. After the 4 month contract is up, you have the option to continue on a cheaper month to month subscription based program or to walk away with the knowledge and tools and continue your journey on your own.

How will I be able to contact you?

You will be able to contact me daily (except sundays) via WhatsApp. I will be unavailbe sunday due to being with family but will get back to you within 24-36 hours. You can ask me short questions you have outside of our weekly 45-minute 1:1 sessions. We will have the 1:1 call through your preference of facetime, skype, or zoom. I will call you at a pre-agreed time to chat about your progress and help you work through any challneges you are facing.

Do I need a gym membership?

No gym membership is required. We can create a physical activity routine if you prefer not to perform exercise. We will be working on reaching the minimum weekly requirement of physical activity recommended by health.gov.

What foods will I be eating?

You will be focusing on eating dominantly whole foods such as meat, eggs, whole-grains, legumes, fruit, vegetables, nuts, and seeds. This is where the evidence is at and what you should be eating 80% or more of the time. That's not to say that you can't have sweets or junk food, it just shouldn't happen daily. We will discuss this topic in depth during your coaching sessions.
You will also receive a recipe book that has 75 delicious recipes tailored to help you lose weight. We can also take some of your favorite receipes and modify them to be weight loss friendly.

Will I need to buy any supplements?

No supplments are needed to participate in this program. There are only 2 supplements that I would recommend to everone and that is a good quality probiotic to repair gut flora and digestive harm from years of poor food choices. And a good quality protein poweder if you are someone who does heavy weight lifting sessions to ensure proper muscle recovery. However, these supplements are purely optional.

What if I have diabetes or other health conditions?

I am also a licensed and registered occupational therapist and have 4 years of experience working with many different medical diagnosis. I am currently coaching older adults with multiple health conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, stroke, etc. and am helping them lose weight. The majority of chronic health conditions would benefit from weight loss. However, just to be safe, contact your physician to get approval before starting a new diet or lifestyle change. If you are a medicare beneficiary, you may be elidgible for compensation for health coaching services. To find out more, click here.
