“Joe has been our brilliant PT for a couple of years now but we always knew exercise was only part of the story.”– Chris
When it comes to losing excess weight, or eating a healthier more balanced diet, it is not as easy as substituting foods or eradicating certain things from what we consume. Weight loss and changing dietary behaviours is complex and requires a multi-faceted approach, to create sustainable positive changes. Understanding why we eat certain foods, can be the turning point to success.
“The Christmas & New Year excesses and a forthcoming holiday focused our minds and encouraged us to ask for help with (a) understanding what we were eating (nutrition, fat and sugar content) and its impact and (b) losing weight.”– Chris
I set up my Level 3 Nutritional Support Plan to offer support that goes beyond simply listing the good and the bad foods for people. With a carefully constructed programme, my client’s complete a consultation meeting with me and are offered a bespoke and specific action plan to move forward. Lifestyle factors such as stress, sleep, working patterns, energy levels and meal habits are all focused upon to offer a holistic approach to weight loss goals and healthier eating.
“The first step was a relaxed chat on a Sunday morning where we confessed to our sins which included wine, cheese and bread (often at the same time). Later that week a weigh-in, which also covered body composition testing, then a great plan with advice from Joe on when and what we should be eating. We gave Joe access to our MyFitnessPal app so he could see exactly what we were eating. (You must be honest!) He would send friendly little comments on a weekly basis (e.g. pointing out that many foods have higher sugar content than we had ever realised).”– Chris
“The nutritional advice was simple and mixed with regular training, producing great results. The best thing about it is that I’ve managed to introduce lots of the advice to my daily routines.”– Richard
It’s fantastic to see the results that people like Chris & Richard have made after signing up to my Level 3 Nutritional Support Plan. By identifying lifestyle and nutritional habits, positive changes can be made, leading to more sustainable success.
“We’ve realised that healthy eating need not be boring, (who knew quality peanut butter is acceptable?) and that we enjoyed the challenge of working on it together with Joe’s help. So much so, although the holiday has been and gone, we are carrying on with the healthier eating (with an occasional glass of wine)”. – Chris
