Never give up…more »
When I met Joan, she told me everything she didn’t want; I hate the way I feel, I don’t want to get breast cancer like my mom did, why can’t I stick to a health program, I love food too much to give it up. Can you guess why Joan can’t lose weight and get [...]more »
Every time I coach a client, I learn something new. Usually it’s about a nutrition technique that helps them eat healthy throughout the day, their favorite part of a workout or new move, or a thought or belief that helps them stay focused. I spoke at an office in NY recently and I asked a [...]more »

Day 4- Is it possible to train your body to be skinny? Absolutely, but not how you think.
I received several emails in response to yesterdays post about the story we tell ourselves. I could tell what they were doing with their bodies when they wrote the emails. Let me explain; more »
The answer is yes.
You know you need to get between 6-8 hours of sleep per night as an adult and most kids and teens need 8 to 12 hours per night. But why is sleep important? There are so many reasons but lets focus on weight loss. When we sleep our bodies regenerate and replenish from the day. Also, when we don’t get enough sleep we can be irritable, tired, moody, unable to focus and physically in pain. The result; we may eat more to try and feel better. This is documented by research.
Case study: I met with my health coaching client, Susan, recently, who tracks all of her food, workouts and sleep patterns. She noticed when she doesn’t get enough sleep, she doesn’t lose weight. It happened twice in one week. That’s an eye opener. So, she can be doing everything else right, but if she’s not sleeping enough she is sabotaging yourself. She’s lost over 70lbs and she will make sure she gets enough sleep to continue her journey.
Start by trying to get just 1 hour more per night, don’t watch TV in bed and avoid caffeine after 2pm. Nighty Night
I have 3 clients who wanted to lose weight. They all had the same problem. They were not eating enough. I realize it may sound crazy, but eating too little will slow down your metabolism and cannibalize your muscle.
All 3 clients, one in her 40′s and the other 2 in their 80′s, all lost weight when they did the following:
- Found out their BMR using the tracker
- Ate the amount of calories the tracker told them by following menus > (dinner menus coming soon)
- Did 20 minutes of my band workout, 5 times per week
- Kept a food and workout diary
- Reported in to their coach, me, via health coaching sessions
