HEALTH COACH PROGRAM
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Can I pay for hourly coaching instead of the full 8-week plan? How much?
Currently, I am only offering the 8-week program. To best serve you as a coach and assist you in establishing a lifelong healthy way of living, one hour of time is simply a drop in the bucket. Your personal health history and challenges are no doubt nuanced and intricate. To respect and empower your journey deserves dedicated one on one coaching through the beginning stages of transformation. Eight weeks allows time for you to enact lifestyle modifications and establish new patterns of eating, while I am there to coach you through the process.
How is your program different from a Paleo or vegan diet?
The program is based on a primally-aligned way of eating- similar to how our ancestors ate. In pop culture, this is commonly known as the Paleo diet. You may have also heard it referred to as an ancestral diet. The emphasis is on responsibly sourced, quality meat and animal products, fish, healthy fats, vegetables, and fruits while eliminating grains, industrial seed oils, processed foods, and modern food-like products. While I acknowledge the ethical arguments for veganism, from a physiological basis and nutritional standpoint, I do not endorse a vegan diet. If you chose to eat a vegan diet, I fully respect your decision and will not argue with you. However, this program is not designed for you.
I want to lose 50 pounds. How long will that take?
It depends! (Everyone’s least favorite answer, right?) But it’s true. How quickly you can expect to lose 10, 20, 50 or more pounds depends on several factors including your personal health history, genetics, age, environment, sleep quality and quantity, physical abilities and exercise/movement habits, what and how you eat, what and how much you drink, stress management, daily habits, and your support system.
I’ve gained and lost the same 20 pounds over and over. How will this program be different?
This program is not a short-term diet; it is a life-long way of eating and living. In addition to food, the program also takes into account other facets of health like sleep, movement, spending time outdoors, community, brain health, and play. Also, before enrolling you as a client, we will discuss the reason(s) why you want to lose weight. Losing and keeping the weight off is much more attainable when the reason for weight loss is tied to long-term goals and you establish lifestyle modifications to support those goals.
