'Eat More Nutrition'
The First Step is that you're here. Now let me ask you:
- Are you confused about what to eat, how much to eat and when to eat?
- Have you tried a fad diet to get quick results but they never lasted?
- Do you feel groggy, lack daily energy or live off coffee?
- Do you have any digestive issues (like bloating, gas, etc.)?
- Do you feel like you cannot find a balance with the foods you enjoy and maintaining a healthy bodyweight?
- Do you want to improve your health, fitness goals and overall longevity?
If you've answered 'yes' to any of the above, then great - that's where Nutrition Coaching steps in!
My approach is a one on one nutrition and lifestyle coaching.
I am here to help you live your best life. Whether you’re a new parent or busy parent; budding athlete or professional athlete; fallen off the wagon or needing a whole new wagon; or maybe you’ve just tried every damn diet under the sun and you’re still not getting the results you want.
Our approach is to use science-based nutrition, personal experiences and professional knowledge to provide individualized coaching and advice to suit each client’s needs. For some, that might mean focusing on calorie consumption; for others, it might mean tracking macros. Or, it might simply mean learning more about what food helps us feel and look our best and help heal our gut!
Good nutrition is important to support muscle growth and a healthy body composition. But for many people, a focus on eating enough protein and watching calories is not enough. And proper nutrition can have many benefits beyond supporting you in building muscle and/or losing weight. Good nutrition will improve your aerobic capacity, reduce achy joints, help recover you faster from a hard workout or an injury, improve your mood and energy levels, and help you sleep better - overall, leading a healthier lifestyle.
As a starting point, focusing on the fundamentals of “eat meat and vegetables, nuts and seeds, some fruit, little starch and no sugar.”
Sounds easy enough, but it isn’t always so cut and dry. Some of us may have hormone issues, food sensitivities or allergies, digestive/gut or liver issues, or nutrient imbalance and it may be necessary to dig a little deeper to optimize your nutrition. Just as we sometimes need to modify or scale a workout, it may be necessary to take a personalized, or bio-individual approach to nutrition.
I am sure you have heard, you cannot out-exercise a bad diet. But on the flip side, our nutritional choices are a powerful tool to help us achieve our goals in and outside of the gym.
