Nutritional Consulting (Weight Loss)

    Weight loss plans are endless – high protein, low fat, low carbohydrate, this shake, that bar, fat burners, don't eat at night, eat six times a day, eat one time a day – and the list goes on. Every client can name at least one person for whom at least one of these methods has worked. And each client can think of many people for whom nothing seems to work. The truth is, any method will lead to fat and weight loss if, and ONLY if, the person achieves a caloric deficit (negative energy balance). Guiding Principle: Calories consumed must be less than calories burned!

    Most weight loss approaches stress points or calories, carbs and fats and don't focus on the individual and their personal needs. The ability to achieve and maintain ideal body fat is largely genetic. So no one food plan works for everyone. Instead of creating lists of restrictions and good and bad foods, I coach my clients to create a happy, healthy life in a way that is flexible, fun and free of denial, deprivation and discipline.

    After reviewing the impact of natural foods, basic concepts of sound nutrition, the role of energy dense foods, and individual needs for your phase in life, I will suggest healthy choices. Working together we'll find the balance of food and lifestyle choices that work best for YOU. We'll develop gradual, lifelong changes that will enable you to reach your current and future health goals.
