As we all know, a lot of people start down a path to become fit and healthy but then stop…why? There are a lot of answers to this question. It might be that someone is overwhelmed or intimidated once they get into the gym. Perhaps it’s that someone wants fast results and quits when they aren’t seeing progress in a short period of time. Someone may feel like they don’t have the time to commit to a workout regime or they don’t have support from family and friends. But what about those individuals who do workout but aren’t seeing the results they want?

Welcome back or hello if this is the first time you are reading my blog. This may be one of my most important posts yet. I had been training with my first trainer for several months and I was seeing some progress but not the progress I hoped for. I was still struggling with work, my mood, and my eating issues. Then I was introduced to Tory Dube, a holistic life coach. (Seriously check her out, as she is awesome!) I signed up for her 3 month one-on-one coaching program followed by her group coaching program in hopes that she could help me with my next phase of my journey.

Human genome is extremely complex and so unique that each persons blue print on dieting along with psychological perception of stress, emotions and food can NOT be summed up in a meal plan or a diet. What may seem to be an "optimal " diet approach that works for most is not looking into the outliers (we all have our own unique outliers) and what's worse the prevalence of obesity in US (36% obese adults and 17% obese youth - CDC 2015 statistics).

On July 3rd I crossed the border into the large and beautiful country of Canada. It was a trip over a year in the making that had absolutely nothing to do with fitness, which is what I wanted. After spending the month of May teaching over 60 group exercise classes along with my personal training schedule I was burned. I accepted a position in a balloon shop to study more about my balloon hobby.

You will never change your life until you change something you do daily. The secret of your success is found in your daily routine. Learning to distinguish the need to eat to nourish your body vs. the need to comfort, reward, and provide therapy for your body will allow you to live and experience the world in a whole new dimension. Dieting is a short term solution for a long term problem. More than 90% of dieters will regain their weight back within 2 years. The problem that is NOT being addressed is the underlying reason why you are overfat and the deprivation/binge/purge/repeat mindset.

We make hundreds of decisions in a day both concisely and subconsciously and one of the biggest is food choices. Having one less decision to make can set you up for long term success without even bating an eye. Take the guess work from what to eat out of your day to focus on more important tasks by planning ahead with your meals for day and the week. No time to prep for the week? No problem visit your local supermarket and stock up on already made protein and vegetables that can be eaten right from the bag or even microwaved.

What do you think is hindering you from achieving your goal weight, even if your diet is spot on?The problem with diets these days is not the diet itself, but the lack of knowledge, along with nutritional deficiencies that is preventing you from looking and feeling at your ultimate best.

Low carb, high fiber, sugar free, high protein are the words you see on majority of manufacturing boxes, wrappers and packaging labels but yet “net carbs” is the real number that consumers are focusing on, that are listed boldly and marketed on the front. So you may ask the question does “net carbs” really matter?
