What we do
Counting calories, expensive diet plans that send prepackaged meals to the door, and fad diets may provide temporary results, but most people gain weight again when they stop those practices. Trying yet another diet or food plan will not only fail, it can be harmful to overall health. The body is not designed to be overweight, or to keep losing and gaining weight in a vicious cycle of fad diets. Seriously, grapefruit three times a day will only result in vitamin deficiencies, lack of concentration, and an ulcer from all that acid in the stomach.
A Complete Process
How the body digests and processes specific foods is just one component of weight loss. There are several others. Body type, genetics, cravings, and inherent traits contribute as well. An evaluation of those components, completed by a holistic health coach, can help identify which foods the individual body digests best.
Analysis of tests can also indicate any intolerance to foods, vitamin deficiencies, and reactions to certain foods. Taking evaluations and the current state of health into consideration is simply the beginning of the complete process. An experienced wellness coach incorporates many other factors as well.
Relationships, careers, pollution, and stress triggers are also major contributors to weight loss and overall health. Spirituality, reactions to surroundings, and attitudes regarding exercise are components that also have an influence on weight loss. Everything is connected.
A stressful day at work, an unhealthy relationship, dealing with difficult family members, and even the joys of parenting have a direct effect on eating habits, sleep patterns, perceptions, and moods. Finding constructive ways of coping with daily issues and concerns, long-term situations, and sudden changes are as important to weight loss as eating healthy food.
Where to Start
Even though weight loss is not all about food, looking at eating habits is the best place to start. Making a few changes can have a substantial effect on weight loss efforts. Whenever possible, buy organic foods as they will have the most nutritional value. Limit fats and sugars to moderate or minimal levels. Purchase an ice cream cone rather than buying a gallon of ice cream, waffle bowls, and hot fudge to keep at home. If it is there, people will eat it all.
