I liken my services to that of a financial adviser, but instead of wealth management my focus is on quality of life and health management. There are many ways to get rich; however, making the investment in a competent professional to help manage assets, (or at least guide you in the right direction) can increase wealth substantially versus investing blindly (or not investing at all because you don't know where to start). As long as an adviser works toward their client's best interest and doesn't hold any alternative motives, there will likely be a significant return on investment for the client in the form of time, money and peace of mind.
Financial advisers are paid for their expertise in navigating complex financial rules, identifying critical opportunities and performing all the necessary calculations to guarantee financial success. Just as our monetary system has its complex design (with its ratios, rules, interactions and taxes), so does the human body (with its many body systems, hormone responses, hunger mechanisms, nutrient interactions and responses to exercise). I am here to help you navigate these complexities, perform the necessary calculations and create a manageable plan that ultimately leads to sustainable changes that support the goals YOU set.
The concept of getting rich seems easy- "make more than you spend". Similarly, weight loss has a similar adage in "calories in, calories out". The latter phrase only skims the surface of and unbelievably deep ocean murked up with gimmicks, gadgets, fad diets, supplements, greed and false advertising. You can see below some of the contributing factors that play into weight management and why weight management is anything but simple.
Our society revolves around consumerism and debt, just as our toxic health environment promotes excess calories and sedentary behavior (this is slowly beginning to change because our healthcare system, nor our economy, can sustain it any longer). It takes time, hard work and dedication, but it is possible to attain health, happiness and quality of life!
"The same actions yield the same results". This is true for all areas of wellness- fitness included. There are many ways to manage your weight successfully, just as there are many ways to get rich. The trick is to find the right mix of ingredients and flavors that come together to create a result unique to your personal taste.
Many people ask me "what can I do to lose weight?" I could start by stating what I believe will help (limit added sugars and processed foods, eat more fruits and vegetables, move more, cook more meals at home. etc. ), but knowledge alone is not enough. The most difficult aspect of weight management is discovering how to realistically implement healthy behaviors into your life. I am not in the business of telling people what to do, but rather helping them discover what they want to do, why and then guiding them toward their discovery of how best to do it.
