Nutritional Consulting in Northern Kentucky
Most experts estimate that nutrition accounts for approximately 75-80% of your total progress. We would have to agree. Over the years, we have worked with clients from all different backgrounds with a wide array of goals and experience.
The general public is confused about nutrition. With so many false claims, half-truths, “miracle” pills and products; it’s nearly impossible to separate the hype and misinformation from the truth. Did you know that statistically, over 90% of those who lose weight gain it back? This number may surprise you, but it does not surprise us. Why is this rate of repeated failure so high? We are taught to follow extremes. Most of us are either on diets, or we are eating whatever we want, when we want. We often see no middle ground and therefore a healthy eating lifestyle has been reduced to a diet program. Many diet programs are effective, as long as you are on them consistently and religiously. Where they fail to work is in being realistic and sustainable. It doesn’t matter how much weight you lose if you can’t keep it off.
This service is designed to bring your understanding of nutrition to a completely new level and empower you to make true changes to your lifestyle that last!
Here's what you'll learn through our Nutritional Consulting:
- Establish A Proper Eating Schedule:
Understand the importance of nutrient timing and how to not only accelerate your metabolism, but also create higher levels of energy, strength and recovery. The right foods eaten at the wrong time sabotage your efforts in getting a leaner, healthier body. Learn how to prepare smaller meals throughout the day, avoiding the energy crashes and slow metabolism you experience now.
- Foods You Should Eat:
Learn how to choose and combine the right sources of protein, carbohydrates, fats and fibrous carbohydrates at each meal by using our comprehensive list of foods. This list includes lean, non-processed meats, low glycemic index carbohydrates and unsaturated, non-trans fats..
- Feed Muscle and Starve Fat:
Most people find themselves following diets that result in a loss of both; muscle and fat. This causes a loss in metabolic function, reducing the amount of calories your body is able to burn on a daily basis. Maintaining muscle tissue is an important part of any fitness program. Muscle allows you to burn more body fat by supporting a higher metabolism. This helps you avoid the dreaded “plateau” we often see in most weight loss programs.
- Make Changes For Life:
Rather than taking on the whole world all at once and attempting to change everything in an instant, we will show you how to make necessary adjustments on a gradual, but consistent basis. The term we use here is “Gradual Progression.” Smaller changes made over a longer period of time lead to greater consistency and long-term success. This approach is far more successful than they common approach used in changing too much all at once, leaving you feeling too restricted, deprived and overwhelmed. It’s a balance of what is possible VS what is manageable. Each person is different and because of this, our approach with each client is different as well.
- Your % of body fat:
Not many people are excited to learn these numbers, and for a good reason. You wouldn’t ask for the help of a trainer if you didn’t feel uncomfortable with your body to some extent. Despite the initial discomfort, this knowledge is vital to you and your trainer in order to set specific goals, track your progress and assess which adjustments need to be made in your program. If you are unsure of this number, you are simply guessing.
- Understand Nutrition Labels:
Reading your labels is just the beginning. You need to understand what you are truly getting from each food product that you purchase and consume. Learn the difference between Micronutrients and Macronutrients and how food companies only tell you half-truth’s about their products. Know what you are putting into your body and understand the effect that each ingredient has on your body.
- Plan and Prepare Your Own Meals:
Whether on the road or at home, learning to plan and prepare keeps the odds of success in your favour. Fast foods, frozen TV dinners, unhealthy snacks and skipping meals only hamper your progress. Learn how to avoid these common traps and take back your power to make healthy eating choices. Impulsive decisions made while hungry, often end in regrettable outcomes. Consistency is the most important ingredient in any fitness program. Without proper planning and preparation all hopes of being consistent are gone.
