It's time for us take responsibility for our own health and nutrition or the pattern and more chronic illness will continue. Health coaches like myself will listen to you and guide you in making choices in food, nutrition and lifestyle habits that will improve your health once and for all.
As a health coach and also someone living with Type 1 Diabetes for many years now, I get your struggles with trying to figure it all out and your frustrations when the Dr.'s don't truly understand that you simply want to feel more confident and in control of life.
I've developed my own diabetes treatment plan when I receive my bi-annual blood tests to see where my health markers are at (A1C%, metabolic panel, hormone levels, vitamin & mineral levels, etc.). I look at my diet, exercise routine, lifestyle habits and how they all work together for my steady state of health, and my #1 marker is sustained energy, happiness and never feeling deprived! I can help you to do the same for you and your health goals.
Are you at the point in life that you want more for yourself and need to talk with someone about your health? Still unsure...then here's 10 Reasons WHY you need a diabetes health coach
1. Chances are you won’t follow through with your New Year’s Resolution to lose weight or get healthy.
80% of people who make New Year’s resolutions break them. When you break your 2019 resolution, don’t wait for January 1, 2020 to follow through on what you need to do for your health. Set an intention every day when you wake up to improve your health. I will show you how to make small changes that will build up to a lifetime of good health.
2. You don’t understand why you have gained the weight.
Over the years the extra few pounds have stayed on you, but you are not eating any differently. Did you know that insulin resistance (type 2 diabetes) is the #1 cause of weight gain? Together we can peel back these layers to help you identify the easiest changes to make today that will make the biggest impact on your health.
3. You have cravings that you don’t know how to handle so you end up eating.
You figure that you don’t have any control over the cravings, so you just give in, every time, year after year. This can be another indication of insulin resistance and Blood Sugar Roller Coaster Ride that I help many clients get off of for good! I help you identify the cause of the cravings, it often goes deeper than just the food and enable you to beat your cravings or binge eating.
4. The people around you are overweight or unhealthy.
If your family and friends look like they are at an unhealthy weight or don’t feel healthy, you might be hanging around people who aren’t aware of what good nutrition changes are needed. You might be one of those folks. I help you decipher the truth about what is healthy and what is not.
5. You want to lose weight fast, so you are considering which diet to try.
Strict diets usually don’t work. First you severely restrict yourself, and when you lose the weight, the diet ends and you don’t know how to eat on a normal, daily basis. I teach you how to make healthy decisions one meal at a time, without feeling deprived and save you money that many diet programs cost!
6. You don’t have enough time for yourself.
There are only so many hours in a day and you simply don’t have any time to devote to yourself for pampering, exercise, or to cook. Think about how much time and money illness will cost you?
I'm here to empower you to finally take care of yourself and help you realize great health begins with you!
7. You are stressed out with family and work responsibilities.
If you suffer from stress or anxiety, I teach you about the relationship between stress and chronic disease. I show you how to use meditation, yoga and simply breathing exercises to help reset your priorities, and how to get your stress under control.
8. Your family needs to eat better but you aren’t sure how to accomplish that with what you know or the time you have.
There are cookbooks, diet books, commercials, restaurants, and products labeled “healthy” on the market, and you need to improve your and your family’s diet. I know it's overwhelming with so much information out there to sift through. I help you set a plan to get started, which is often the hardest first step.
9. You are confused about whether meat, protein, carbs, dairy, produce, or GMO foods are healthy.
Every existing diet, conflicts with every other diet. How can you tell what is healthy for you? I help you determine what all natural and delicious foods are healthy for YOU and what will work for YOU.
10. Nothing has worked before, so you continue to gain weight or have chronic health issues.
If you suffer from black and white thinking, chances are you have given up because nothing you have tried before worked. If you have gained weight, or if you are suffering from chronic health issues that are blood sugar-related, high cholesterol, blood pressure, inflammation or arthritis, or other health issues, you may be able to improve your health quickly through food and nutrition. I wade through all the mountains of nutrition research, so you don't have to.. and together we figure out what works for you and your health.
