Building Your Weight Loss Team

So you’ve decided you want to lose weight. You’re probably getting prepared on the right nutrition and exercise strategies, but have you considered that you may need some help? My guess is probably not. It’s not your fault. It’s been drilled into your head that weight loss is just a matter of calories in and calories out.  Losing weight is nothing more than eating less than you’re burning. So get to it!

Ok, no more joking. Anyone who has struggled with maintaining their “sweet spot” knows that it’s not that simple.  Obesity is a complex, chronic disease. Even when a person loses weight, weight regain is common. I believe there’s a magic ingredient that is missing from most weight loss plans. It’s called support. Weight loss cannot be a solo adventure. It’s an arduous journey, uphill, against the wind. Now imagine you had a trail partner, or 3. More support means more hands and feet to carry the load and perhaps you can even enjoy each other’s company along the way.  That’s a good picture of the weight loss journey–a team of individuals with the same goal in mind.

Obesogenic Environment
Obesa-what? Obesogenic environment simply is a term to describe the western culture that promotes poor food choices and sedentary behavior.  On my lunch break today, I picked up a few produce items from the grocery store. I don’t often look at the receipt, but this time I did. One apple, organic: $1.02. My immediate thought was, “I could have bought a hamburger for that price!” Don’t get me wrong. I have no desire to feast on a greasy food-like meat muffin that probably has more chemicals than nutrients, but it highlighted to me a major problem in our world. We are incentivized to eat junk food–it’s convenient and cheap.  No wonder people are struggling.

A Better Way
Yes, better nutrition and exercise habits must occur–no question about that, however, for these habits to stick, it must be done in the context of a supportive environment.  If  you have decided to stop weight gain in its tracks, enlist the help of your coworkers, neighbors, family and friends. Out with the old and in with the new!  Make time for hanging out with people who have the habits you want.  Their success will rub off on you.  Likewise, the opposite is true. If you’re hanging out with the same people that contributed to your weight gain, it will be difficult to move ahead.  Sure, it’s impossible to get away from all negative influences (apart from leaving the planet), but you can be sure to make time for you.  And you are worth it.  Give us a call for professional support.

Diets and Weight Loss

No doubt, you’ve tried countless diets over the years in an effort to shed a few pounds or to improve your health.  Fad diets are easy to spot once you know what to look for.  They speak to our need for control when everything is out of control.  Fad diets are an attractive option because they seem to make logical sense, that is, until you do some actual research from an unbiased source.  Here’s what you need to know:  THERE IS NO ONE SIZE FITS ALL WHEN IT COMES TO YOUR HEALTH.  There’s no magical formula that will get you the results you want.  You can’t follow your trainer’s diet and expect to get the same results.   The magic happens when accept that you are unique and will require a unique approach, but don’t think you should approach it alone.  It can be highly worth your time and money to seek professional support from a health coach or a registered dietitian.

A sound nutritional plan will always include lots of vegetables, lean proteins and whole foods, while being low in sugar, refined carbohydrates and highly processed foods.  If you seek better health through better nutrition, you should know that the answer isn’t “out there.”  Instead, the answers you need lie within you—specifically, in the mass between your two ears.  The question often is not what should I eat, but rather how can I make it happen.  Diets fail for lack of proper planning.

If that overly simplistic explanation doesn’t quite motivate you, there is another tool that can help.  Nutritional genetic testing looks at your individual genetic makeup which determines how you may respond to diet and exercise.  It’s called nutrigenomics and it reinforces the idea that no one person responds equally to the same diet.  Instead of bouncing from one fad diet to the next, you can be tested and the results will be reviewed with you by a trained professional.  Likely this person will be a dietitian and they will counsel you on the appropriate nutrition and exercise strategies for you.  If you are interested in learning more about this testing, schedule an appointment or simply give us a call

Health Journaling

Beyond calorie counting
Most of you are more than familiar with tracking food and calories. You can do this any number of ways: MyFitness Pal, Pen and Paper, sticky notes–whatever works for you! Some goals of tracking EVERYTHING you put in your mouth are:

  • Increases awareness of what, how and when you eat
  • Promote accountability for yourself and you can share with your weight loss coach
  • Increases understanding of calories, macronutrients and portion sizes
  • Can unveil patterns of mindless eating, habits, food triggers and food cues
  • Help you to lose weight. Research supports that the simple act of writing it down is correlated with greater amounts of weight loss

TIPS FOR FOOD TRACKING:
– Do not generalize. Be specific and write everything down including portion sizes and amounts
– Include extra’s such as condiments, dressings, creamers, etc–they add up!
– Keep it simple. If you make it too difficult, you will not stick with tracking
– Include your feelings and emotions
– Find a format that works for YOU. Myfitness Pal is a good tool, but pen and paper works well too
– Personalize it. Journaling is about YOU and for YOU. You may have to experiment some before you find a system that works for you

Food tracking can be a helpful tool, but at the end of the day, it’s really not about the food.  What you’re really after is the change in behavior and habits. Too often, the calorie counting becomes the focus and can actually become counter-productive. That’s where journaling can help. Journaling is a powerful, yet underutilized tool that allows you to externalize and process thoughts, emotions and triggers.  I challenge you to try it for 30 days and see if you don’t experience dramatic results.

Eat To Live

Want to lose weight?  It’s not complex.  You’ll have to eat less calories than you burn.  That can be done many different ways by adjusting your nutrition and exercise, and there isn’t one cookie cutter way that works for everyone.  That’s why I never say that weight loss is easy.  Weight loss can be achieved through a number of different diets–ketogenic, low-fat, low-calorie, DASH diet, to name a few–but keeping weight off requires a completely individualized approach.

Nutrition & Religion?
Nutrition advice these days sounds an awful lot like religion: “Don’t eat this,” and “Do eat this.”  It’s nothing more than a complicated list of dos and don’ts that keeps people switching from one diet to the next.  Paleo is going out of style like the bell bottoms of the 70’s.  Veganism is the new skinny jean, but few people can pull it off.  What it comes down to is that people are medicating themselves with food and that has to change. Humans most likely have always had a preference for sweet and savory, but never before have they had so many options and opportunities to fulfill their every craving.  Where I work (where I counsel people on positive nutrition and healthy habits) there are literally dozens of options for fast food, dozens of options for sit-down restaurants, dozens of options for convenience junk food and at least 6 different grocery chains within a 2 mile-radius.  If ever there was a need for a visual representation of an obesogenic environment, Woodruff Road would come to mind. People no longer have to plan meals, so they don’t.  People no longer have to say “no” to a craving, and they don’t.  People can literally fulfill any craving they have by pulling up to a drive through, or a quick stop at the convenience store.

Eat to Live
Ultimately, what we want for our clients (and society as a whole) is to be people that eat to live, rather than people that live to eat. It’s not a bad thing to enjoy your food, but the problem is that our food is used in ways our bodies never intended.  Food should be nourishing and enjoyable, but should not be used as a quick fix to deal with unpleasant emotions.  Slow food is good and nourishing.  Junk food provides instant gratification. Eating to live is not normal in our culture so when a person commits to a healthy lifestyle, often they find they are going it alone.  Sure, it’s easy to find people to diet with, but the actual weight loss journey is a rather lonely one. You’re still working at it 5 years later, while everyone else you know has been on a dozen different diets, and yet still haven’t tackled the beast.  If you’re lucky, they’ll admire you for your hard work.  More likely, they’ll try to bring you back into that vicious cycle of dieting.  Dieting is like running on the hamster wheel.  You jump off the red one so you can jump on the new fancy blue one.  At the end of the day, it’s still just a hamster wheel that leaves you tired.  A diet by any name is still just a diet.  Unless you break the whole thing apart and redesign to fit you, it won’t work.  That’s why we are always clear in our message:  it’s not weight loss–it’s a lifestyle change.  We can help you lose weight fast, but keeping it off requires a lot of time, energy and dedication.  We believe that support and the right tools, combined with your motivation to work hard will do the trick.  If you’re tired of yo-yo dieting, get in touch with us.  We’d love to work with you.

Fad Diets

It’s been famously said that a lie can travel halfway around the world while truth is still putting its shoes on.  The same can be said about fad diets.  In my years of studying nutrition, I have seen many diets recycled and repackaged as something new.  Apparently, great nutrition is only available to those who read the latest nutrition blogs from self-described gurus.

Fad diets are:

  • promising
  • trendy
  • based on some science (emphasis on some)
  • strict

Fad diets promise to provide some dramatic results and they usually seem to provide an answer to a deep, complex issue like weight loss, for example.  Obesity is a disease with a multifactorial causation, meaning there is not just one cause and not one answer.  Fad diets will promote the superiority of one diet or nutrient over the other, or they may put an undue emphasis on one particular issue.  We call it, “majoring in the minors.”   What you will find with fad diets is a high amount of anecdotal evidence.  People are drawn to their personal stories of triumph and healing by following a particular set of rules.  Anecdotal evidence shouts, “hey, this worked wonders for me!  Just be willing to invest a lot of time, energy and money and you can achieve the same results too!”  Anecdotal stories are powerful.  Did I mention that?  People affected by obesity are vulnerable to this sort of tactic because they are desperate for help and answers.  The BIG problem with anecdotal evidence is that what works for one person may not work for another person.  A sturdier approach involves listening, assessing and then applying specific strategies and approaches that are unique to that individual.  One tool that can help is the Nutrigenomix test.  This allows the dietitian to review specific nutrition, exercise and behavior modification strategies based on an individual’s genotype.  In this way, the recommendations are relevant and meaningful which results in better outcomes.

Are you tired of jumping from one fad diet to another? Ready for a personalized approach?  Try working with one of our weight loss coaches.  They will help you to determine the program or services that are right for you.

Motivation?

If Motivation were a person, I think he or she would feel highly misunderstood.  I have the privilege of working with men and women who are trying to lose weight.  Of course, weight isn’t really their problem. They often think it is, but their weight gain is a symptom and the root is much deeper.  One of the things I here so often is, “if I just had more willpower,” or, “I just don’t have the motivation.”  I don’t think people realize that the answer really isn’t about having more.  It’s really about using what you have and building on that.  Motivation really comes from digging deep.

Intrinsic motivation is the type of motivation needed to sustain change.  Ironically, it’s not the type that most trainers and nutritionists are fluent in using.  Most health advice is based on scare tactics, or nothing more than a pep rally. True change comes from helping an individual unearth what has been buried below the surface for a very long time.  No one wants, or even chooses to be overweight.  No one wants to be lazy, truly. I’m sure there’s a few exceptions, but most of you reading will agree with those statements if you’re honest with yourself. So what gives? Why is there a disconnect between what a person WANTS and what a person actually DOES? The disconnect lies in the fact that people are afraid to dig deep and ask the hard questions. So, if your goal is to lose weight, you need to ask yourself WHY do I want to lose weight? And don’t give a simple answer of “better health,” or to “feel better.” I promise that those answers won’t motivate you to change deeply ingrained habits.  Change is hard. Of course, staying the same is also hard.  As the saying goes, choose your hard.  When you work hard to change behaviors (so that you can be the best, most vibrant version of your true self), then you feel empowered and strong.

Motivation comes from realizing that there is no one else on the planet that lives, breathes, eats, thinks and moves just like you. None of us are the same, and yet all of us are really the same. We struggle with the same basic challenges and insecurities.  If you know you need to lose weight, your first step will be to admit that it’s really not just about the weight.  It’s about the habits, choices and circumstances that caused you to gain weight. Let me be emphatic:  there are bodies that are large, beautiful and healthy, just as there are slender and fit-looking bodies that are unhealthy.  If you have let your health take a backseat and  you want to reclaim it, then you’ll need to find your motivation.  Motivation can come from external sources, but the kind that keeps you going is intrinsic motivation and only you can make it happen.  Here’s the thing though, you don’t have to do it alone.  You should surround yourself with people and professionals who will challenge you to grow and expand.  If you want more motivation, start with doing a thorough self-assessment and be honest with yourself.  And then put that bad boy on repeat!  And along the way, reach out for support.  We’d love to come along side you and help.  We have some services and tools that we believe will make a difference in your life so give us a call.

Exercise: Not Too Much, Not Too Little

Making the decision to change your health habits is easy. Most of us do it over and over, but COMMITTING to the health habits, well that’s the struggle, isn’t it?

This week we talked about exercise–the rewards of exercise, as well as the challenges to exercise. If losing weight and keeping it off is your goal, you’ll have to make peace with exercise. This means you must do some soul searching to discover which types of activities you will benefit from and stick with. Exercise is crucial for maintaining a healthy weight.

In my professional opinion, exercise is overplayed as a method to lose weight.  Exercise truly has remarkable health benefits, but the bulk of attention initially should be given to nutrition, habits and behavior change strategies.

My simple formula for weight loss is this:

  • Cut calories–the exact number can be determined using predictive equations, but we take it a step further and use the Korr Reevue Metabolic analyzer to determine your exact kilocalorie needs for weight loss (or maintenance if that’s your goal).
  • Use a simple meal plan, either using whole foods, meal replacements, or a mixture of both. Short term nutrition goals for weight loss are specific and a structured plan helps. Ironically, less variety and options helps.
  • Moderate intensity exercise with an emphasis on building or maintaining lean muscle tissue.
  • Dig deep and identify what your TRUE goals are regarding weight loss. Weight loss requires a tremendous amount of persistent effort and it’s crucial to get clear about WHY you want it. It’s ok to be flexible and adapt goals along the way.
  • Build support. You may need to limit time spent with some people, and you certainly need to find new health buddies to support and encourage your health behaviors.
  • Commit to meeting with your health coach on a regular basis, and especially long-term
  • Understand that weight loss isn’t about a diet. It’s about a thorough lifestyle change that affects body, soul, mind and spirit.

Moderate exercise is my recommendation during the calorie cutting phase. Denying oneself of pleasurable food does not come naturally to most Americans and so the initial focus is on adjusting the nutrition for that individual. Cutting calories is essential for weight loss, but this doesn’t mean a person has to be starved.  There’s a proper way to cut calories that ensures the person feels satisfied.  Much fine-tuning is required to provide a personalized approach to weight loss.  Remember:  no one diet is right for every person.

At some point in the weight loss journey, a person will start to plateau. This is the proper time to consider increasing exercise intensity, or amount, or both. A trainer or a supportive fitness environment can help tremendously at this stage, but I recommend they continue to follow up with their nutrition coach.  At this stage, we may do metabolic testing again to ensure their calorie needs are on target. Monthly body composition testing ensures the person is losing fat, and not precious muscle.

Exercise is key in maintaining a healthy weight, but exercise should not be used in a disordered way to make up for lack of appropriate nutrition. I love the many facets of nutrition, but when it comes to weight loss, the number one challenge for people is to eat the appropriate amount of calories for their needs. The proper formula for weight loss will vary some with each client, but practice, patience and the right support is key.  Nutrition and Exercise should compliment each other and there should be an element of balance for both. This does not mean that exercise should always be easy, but it means the person should balance nutrition with the proper amount and type of exercise, while also managing stress and getting adequate sleep. Do these 4 things well and success is yours!

Meal Planning IS the Magic Bullet

 

Health-solutions-upstate-genteic testing-metabolic

This week was ALL ABOUT MEAL PLANNING.  We talked about food, strategies, time management and we wrapped it up with a visit at Trader Joe’s.  The thing about meal planning is that it’s not “sexy.”  It doesn’t get enough attention for the fact that IT IS THE BEST WAY TO ENSURE WEIGHT LOSS.  Sure it’s ok to eat out every once in a while, but most Americans are completely reliant on fast-food and convenience foods.  A fast-food diet kills, slowly but surely.  Rates of diabetes, heart disease, cancer and obesity (which is a disease by the way) have all soared over the last few decades.  I don’t think anyone chooses to be overweight, but if they go with the flow, the choice will be made for them.  We always say in class:  If you are going to commit to a healthy lifestyle, you will be going counter culture.  Nowhere is that more true than here in the southern part of the States.

What’s the secret to meal planning?  The secret is that there is no secret.  You just do it.  MEAL. PLAN. EVERY. DAY.  But there are a few tricks to save you time. Eventually, you will get to the point where meal prep is just another chore like bathing or brushing your teeth (Am I inspiring you yet!)  There’s nothing too fancy about meal planning, but you know you have to do it.  Not brushing your teeth for a week is not an option, really.  You have to get to the point where you are sick and tired of being sick and tired and you decide to do something about it.  Please let meal planning be the one thing that you commit to.

Here’s some tips:

  • Limit Variety During The Week To Save Time And Money. This means the core of what you eat everyday remains the same, but you can make changes to the seasonings or sides.  Core items in my diet include eggs, egg whites, Wild Alaska Salmon, Cod, Chunk Light Tuna and Tempeh.  To this protein base, I add vegetables and I usually stick to spinach, kale, riced Cauliflower and Green Beans.  Occasionally I have ½ of a baked sweet potato or homemade keto bread.  Snacks include low-fat plain yogurt, berries and a nut butter, a poached egg or a protein bar.  Weekends are fairly similar, but I may have something a little more savory for dinner.
  • Prep And Cook In Bulk On The Weekends. (or your least busy day). If Sunday is your meal prep day, then you’ll have to make sure your grocery shopping is done by the day before.  For me, this means I have to put the frozen fish in the refrigerator on Friday or Saturday in order for it to be thawed.
  • Have The Right Tools For The Right Job. You’ll need make sure your kitchen tools are easily accessible.  Tools that I use each week include a vegetable steamer, a toaster oven, an iron skillet, a large skillet, a baking stone, a Nutribullet and of course, a coffee maker.  Everything I use is stored strategically close to my cooking area.  In addition to cookware, an often neglected aspect of meal prep is Tupperware and a large insulated lunch bag.  Remember, you’ll be cooking anywhere from 2-5 servings to last you throughout the week and most of your meals won’t be eaten at home.  You’ll have to find a system that works for you.  For me this means I cook on Sundays and Tuesday evenings since I work Monday through Thursday.
  • Know your grocery store and get in and get out. Stick to your grocery list and try to avoid impulse purchases.  If you can limit variety, then your grocery shopping experience will be quick and easy because you’ll be eating the same core foods each week.  This recommendation is not a popular one, but unless you have extra time to plan, purchase and prepare a new menu each week, it’s really your best option.  The number one reason people don’t prepare their own meals is because of perceived lack of time.

Some final pointers—

The core of a healthy eating plan is one that emphasizes whole foods in their mostly natural state.  It should be low in added sugars, refined carbohydrates and saturated fat.  Feel free to go sugar-free, but don’t replace it with artificial sweeteners,  It’s worth mentioning that your meal plan should also be calorically balanced with the appropriate macro and micronutrients for your individual needs.  Eating healthy and losing weight are not necessarily the same strategies.  One common mistake people make is that they commit to eating healthy, but they still eat too much.  This is tough for Americans. We were raised in the “clean your plate club.”

Losing Weight.. And Keeping It Off

Weekly Class Overview:  “Ongoing Weight Management”

Losing weight is challenging; Keeping it off is even harder.
Most diets will work for short-term weight loss and really, you have so many options to choose from. Essentially, it should be a whole-foods plan that cuts calories.  Calorie restriction must be a component of the weight loss plan–exercise alone won’t produce much weight loss for most people. There is considerable controversy regarding the Low-Fat vs Low-Carb approach to weight loss, but I tend to advocate for lower carb and lower fat, with a higher emphasis on good quality lean proteins and lots of vegetables.  Another approach that works for more aggressive weight loss is the use of meal replacements.  Meal replacements can be effective when used within a program that utilizes the skills of a registered dietitian and team of professionals.

Enough of the nutrition talk. That’s the easy part. By far the most challenging part to weight management has to do with habits, rewards, environment and lifestyle factors.  In my opinion, enemy number one is the environment and culture into which most of us live.  Our culture itself is toxic to our health.  In most cases, fast, cheap, high calorie food is readily available whereas healthy, nutritious foods are often out of reach for many.  Many cities lack the proper infrastructure to encourage movement, and our work is mostly sedentary.  Our environment actually promotes sedentary behavior and poor food choices.  Think about that for a minute!  Not enough attention is given to the role of the environment.  Individuals looking to lose or maintain weight MUST arrange their world for success.  Meal planning must become priority.  Physical activity must become a priority.  Managing stress and sleeping well must become a priority.  First, a person must recognize the extreme importance of self-care and arrange their environment in a way that supports the health behaviors they need to succeed.

Finally, any good plan must be supported.  Build your team with expert nutritionists, fitness trainers, counselors or psychologists and culinary experts.  Build your friend base to include friends who want to do active things, and friends that are making health and nutrition choices that you wish to emulate.  What are the health habits of those around you?  Do these people have health, vibrancy and energy?  Do they live to eat, or eat to live?  You are a product of those people you spend the most time with.  Don’t believe me? Test it out.  Look at the 5 people that you spend the most time with.  If you are struggling to maintain your healthy habits, look no further than your peers, friends, family and coworkers.  Either you must be the change you wish to see, or you will have to set appropriate boundaries.

Meal Prep Like a Pro

Meal Prep Like A Pro

Time is a precious commodity, but that doesn’t mean your health should suffer.  As a nutrition professional, I practice what I preach to my clients.  Every Sunday I commit time to planning my meals for the week.  My goals of nutrition are simple and straightforward—food provides my body with fuel, nutrients and the substances needed to fight inflammation and disease.  My secondary goal is to eat foods I enjoy.  Over the years I’ve learned to stay away from highly processed foods that are high in sugar or refined carbohydrates and I encourage clients to do the same.

Meal prep is everything, but it does NOT need to be time consuming.  Here are some of my top strategies for busy professionals (moms included):

  • Limit Variety During The Week To Save Time And Money. This means the core of what you eat everyday remains the same, but you can make changes to the seasonings or sides.  Core items in my diet include eggs, egg whites, Wild Alaska Salmon, Cod, Chunk Light Tuna and Tempeh.  To this protein base, I add vegetables and I usually stick to spinach, kale, riced Cauliflower and Green Beans.  Occasionally I have ½ of a baked sweet potato or homemade keto bread.  Snacks include low-fat plain yogurt, berries and a nut butter, a poached egg or a protein bar.  Weekends are fairly similar, but I may have something a little more savory for dinner.
  • Prep And Cook In Bulk On The Weekends. (or your least busy day). If Sunday is your meal prep day, then you’ll have to make sure your grocery shopping is done by the day before.  For me, this means I have to put the frozen fish in the refrigerator on Friday or Saturday in order for it to be thawed.
  • Have The Right Tools For The Right Job. You’ll need make sure your kitchen tools are easily accessible.  Tools that I use each week include a vegetable steamer, a toaster oven, an iron skillet, a large skillet, a baking stone, a Nutribullet and of course, a coffee maker.  Everything I use is stored strategically close to my cooking area.  In addition to cookware, an often neglected aspect of meal prep is Tupperware and a large insulated lunchbag.  Remember, you’ll be cooking anywhere from 2-5 servings to last you throughout the week and most of your meals won’t be eaten at home.  You’ll have to find a system that works for you.  For me this means I cook on Sundays and Tuesday evenings since I work Monday through Thursday.
  • Know your grocery store and get in and get out. Stick to your grocery list and try to avoid impulse purchases.  If you can limit variety, then your grocery shopping experience will be quick and easy because you’ll be eating the same core foods each week.  This recommendation is not a popular one, but unless you have extra time to plan, purchase and prepare a new menu each week, it’s really your best option.  The number one reason people don’t prepare their own meals is because of perceived lack of time.

So there you have it.  I’ve shared my secrets on meal prep and I’m sure by this point you’re thinking, “that’s it? –that’s so boring!”  It’s true.  There is nothing sexy about the daily grind of preparing your food.  I wish it were because then it would be an easy sell.  As it is, meal prep is a daily habit, similar to taking a shower or brushing your teeth.  It’s not always glamorous, but it needs to be done.
