Wellness & weight loss coaching with a difference
They say that diets don’t work because they rarely lead to permanent results, the statistics speak for themselves: 97% of people who lose weight gain it back. Yet women keep on buying into new fad diets every season; that’s the power of marketing and, also, the power of the illusion that if you lose weight you’ll be happy.
Let’s get real on these two points. Firstly, the problem is not that diets don’t work because most of them do work if you stick to them. The problem is that you don’t stick to them, it’s impossible to stick to them, isn’t it? So the question is, why is that? In theory weight loss is very simple: just eat less. Yet, we all know that ‘just eating less’ is not that simple. So rather than looking for yet another eating plan you need to ask why can I not stick to a plan? What is stopping me? THIS is the key to losing weight and getting healthy. It’s not another food plan. Once you figure this out you don’t need a food plan, you just need to have a basic understanding of what is healthy and what isn’t it.
Secondly, the belief that if you lose weight you’ll be happy is nothing but a lie we’ve been sold in order to sell us diets and diet products. The question you need to ask is why can’t I be happy now? The fact is that until you learn to accept your body the way it is now and learn to feel good in it, you will struggle to lose weight and keep it off. However, once you do realise that you can be happy with yourself now, you don’t have to wait, and, guess what? Eating healthy becomes easy because you no longer need to punish yourself and weight will fall off!
I have helped thousands of women lose weight with my online programmes and it’s been my observation that those who do their inner work keep the weight off and continue to enjoy a healthy lifestyle longterm while those who ignore that part of my programmes and just focus on food and some lifestyle changes tend to fall off the wagon at some point, no matter how good and easy to follow the plan is. This is why my coaching is mainly focused on the emotional inner work which includes working on your relationship with your body and food, finding a positive motivation for weight loss, working through any limiting beliefs that cause you to self-sabotage, helping you accept yourself and feel good about yourself now, developing the right mindset for weight loss and more, depending on your needs!
I’ll also give basic healthy eating guidelines, teach you mindful eating and natural portion control and help you create a healthier lifestyle (this includes sleep, stress management, movement… all important for weight loss). I no longer provide eating plans because I do not want to encourage diet mentality. However, I’ll help you create your own eating plans which is an important and rewarding part of a healthy lifestyle and helps you take full control of your own wellbeing!
