As a coach I am here to support you in your new journey, or continued journey into healthy living. It’s not ALL about food, and not ALL about movement. It’s both! Healthy living, and ability to age well and be active is all about nourishing your body, and moving it in a safe healthy manner.
Nutrition Nutrition is 80% of how you keep healthy and have daily function. Nutrition is so powerful that it can increase or lower your risk of certain deadly disorders, and other disorders that can cause a significant loss in daily activity function. Truly!
If you are here for weight loss, that is great, if you are here to learn to control inflammation, that is great! If you just want to feel better – you are in the right place also! Your journey is about finding a nutritious way to eat that fits your lifestyle, while lowering your risk of disease, and learning to find the proper movement to enhance those healthy food choices.
As you may have heard… You can’t outrun your fork. This is true when it comes to weight loss specifically. I can’t tell you the number of people who think it’s as simple as just exercising more. It’s truly not. Your body needs nourishment, and weight loss (and permanent loss) will not occur without it. No matter how much you train (in fact you can overtrain and under eat!), if you keep your diet the same you will see little change in your health. Truly.
Movement This is the remaining 20% of the puzzle. You don’t need to do hours and hours of exercise a day to live healthy and get health benefits from exercise. In fact, just 20-30 minutes most days of the week is all you need. AND the greatest thing is that the intensity is truly up to you and even a very low aerobic activity shows health benefits.
You do need to move as part of this equation. It’s not just about calories in versus out, although in large weight loss situations you will need a deficit. It’s about making sure your muscles continue to be strong, you continue to keep your bone density minerals up and stretch and strengthen! Of course you also change things like blood pressure, blood sugar, risk of heart disease, risk of stroke, autoimmune risks and more by doing simple movement daily!
