Fifteen years ago, when I first became a personal trainer I was like you. I had no idea what a healthy diet was, how to work out or how to combine the two for optimal results. Even after being certified as a personal trainer, I still had no idea what was “healthy,” because the truth is in order to gain the proper knowledge about a healthy diet, you have to take your education much further. It’s important to understand that the typical personal training certification does not FULLY cover proper nutrition and therefore the average trainer doesn’t have that knowledge—you should know this about personal trainers: >>>read my 5 Ways to Pick a GREAT Trainer blog to get insights about personal trainers. Nutrition was something I had to seek out on my own.
Second, as trainers we are humans, just like you, and are surrounded with all the supposedly “healthy diet” product advertisements, just like you. So I went through years of trying different diets, products, exercise routines, and healthy eating theories. I tested all these things on myself and on my clients until I found the PERFECT combination of proper exercises and diet essentials. About 10 years ago, I created the plan that I use not only on myself, but on my clients to this day. It is fool proof, scientifically proven, and yields results that last FOREVER.
Let me preface this by saying NO ONE is naturally ANYTHING. People will often throw around, “she’s naturally skinny,” or he’s naturally big boned blah, blah, blah.” With the exception of actual medical issues such as: hypothyroidism or hyperthyroidism, just to name a couple, you’re either thin because you eat very little or overweight, because you eat a lot. Although, it is true there is such a thing as body “type,” yes. But if you look at my clients’ before and after pics, even though they have varying body types, the results are the same. The main reason is because I teach my clients healthy habits from a holistic perspective. I don’t sell products or lock you into some money making diet scheme. So you can rest assured my blogs are just meant to give you, in a comprehensive and easy-to-follow little package, all the information you need for optimal health and LASTING RESULTS! I quite often receive messages from old clients who’ve continued to follow my philosophy on their own over the years and are still reaping the benefits.
Have the methods you’ve tried before worked? My favorite question I get asked from someone who is NOT where they want to be health and fitness wise is, “what about this other diet? Not gonna name any one in particular, Ahhhhshhhketo! Excuse me, I sneezed. Or “I (or so and so) lost a bunch of weight once by doing (fill in the blank).” My response is: “So tell me, after all that weight loss what happened? Did that effort continue to work for you or anyone you know for at least 10 years? No? Ok then, why not try my way?”
For lasting results, it’s so important to not fixate on the “quick fix.” Will you lose a ton of weight if you start doing a bunch of cardio? Yes. Will you lose weight if you suddenly stop eating carbs? Yes. Will you lose weight if you do a juice cleanse for a week? Yes. But the REAL question you should be asking yourself is, WILL YOU KEEP IT OFF? But more importantly, will whatever method you decide to try not only help you lose weight, but also IMPROVE YOUR HEALTH? My blogs are designed to do BOTH. So read up, let it marinate, then start implementing my advice to begin improving your life SIGNIFICANTLY.
