If I was asked to place a number on the average amount of weight our clients lose I would be hard pressed to give you an answer. Why is this true? It’s not because I don’t see dramatic results, but because my program is designed for the individual – for you. Your weight loss will be unique to you and not to a million other people who are nothing like you.
Loss for Life
Have you been on yo-yo diets before? Have you lost weight only to gain it back in a few months? These situations can be extremely demeaning and make you lose the will to be healthy.
My fat and weight loss program is not quick. I will not promise that you will lose 15 pounds in the first 2 weeks. But, if you follow the macro-nutritious meal plan I suggest, you will become healthier than ever before, will lose weight and keep it off permanently.
I know that when you lose weight fast you gain it back fast. When you lose weight on my program you will be making a lifestyle change. What is the ultimate result? You will lose weight that stays off and achieve the health you desire.
Chew the Fat
Are you hungry after every meal? Do you find yourself snacking often between meals? If you answered yes to either of these questions you may not be getting enough fat in your meals.
Fat performs a unique macronutrient function. It fills you up. On the other hand, if you do not get enough fat your body will store up the fat you do eat. (Think: weight gain, cellulite).
Some fats are better for you than others but a good diet includes all three types of fats. Polyunsaturated fats such as Omega 3, monounsaturated fats, and saturated fats should all be included in your diet. Wild salmon, grass fed red meat, cold pressed oils, nuts, and pasture free eggs are all great sources of omega-3.
Monounsaturated fats can be found in olive oils, nuts, and certain fruits and vegetables such as avocados. You can add nuts to your diet every day as a healthy snack.
Even saturated fats play an important role in a healthy macro-nutritious diet. Saturated fats include long chain triglycerides, (LCTs), which are key to keeping you sated. A meal with LCTs will leave you feeling full for much longer than a meal without LCTs. These triglycerides also boost your immune system, and protect your digestive system and liver. Look for organic grass fed, pastures, and free range raised protein sources.
Fix the Problem
Rather than going on yet another yo-yo diet it is time to find a real solution. To lose fat and weight you must first fix the problem that is causing the weight gain – a metabolic imbalance. The way we respond to food and exercise vary from person to person, in fact it is no rare to see two clients that come to see me on the same diet where one gain weight while the other one lose weight or one feel great and the other one feel terrible and so on.
The needs of nutrients and their ratio vary from person to person. As a famous ancient healer used to say “One man’s meat is another man poison.”
Most diets focus on treating only the symptom (added weight), but we want you to lose unwanted pounds and keep the weight off. I am not putting a band-aid on your problem for a temporary fix. I am giving you the tools to make life long changes.
Once you know your metabolic type you can begin to eat appropriately. You will be able to provide your body the fuel it needs to function at optimum levels. Your metabolism will begin to function better than it has in years and you will literally see your body change before your eyes.
