YOUR BLOOD SUGARS.
Having diabetes doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy your favorite foods, live an active life, or have a body you love… While we work together, you will learn what to do in every diabetes situation so it becomes second nature.
Because our coaching is one on one, your program is designed for YOU. We are not going to tell you exactly what to eat (and make you eat things you hate!), we are not going to make you eat at home the rest of your life, and we are not going to tell you that desserts and “fun” foods are off-limits– in fact, we encourage them as a part of your nutrition plan! We will show you how to live your best life so that you are the healthiest, strongest, and best version of yourself. It’s going to be EPIC – we can’t wait to show you how to regain control of your diabetes and regain control of your LIFE.
WHAT TO EXPECT?
We will start with a phone conversation to get to know each other and discuss your current struggles and goals in diabetes, nutrition, and exercise. We will determine what the best next steps are, and put the plan into place.
DEVELOP YOUR PLAN
You’ll gather some additional information for me about your current nutrition, exercise, and diabetes habits. I’ll use this information to develop your personalized plan.
Each week, we will have a formal check-in, where you update me on how the previous weeks’ goals went. Everything is broken down into small steps to prevent you from becoming overwhelmed and to make sure these are lasting changes.
You’ll have the ability to direct message me during the week with questions or concerns as we help you stay accountable and on track.
WHAT MAKES COACHING WITH US DIFFERENT FROM OTHER COACHES?
SOMEONE WHO GETS IT…AND IS CREDENTIALED
Working with a medically licensed nutrition professional (Registered Dietitian), exercise professional (Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist) who has lived with Type 1 Diabetes for nearly 20 years. If you value working with an expert and receiving a luxury, first-class level experience, you are in the right place!
Unqualified individuals without schooling, legitimate credentials, or real client experience, offering nutrition and exercise “plans” and putting clients’ health at risk.
PERSONALIZED NUTRITION PLAN
After our initial call, we will develop a program that will fit YOUR nutritional needs to optimize BOTH your body composition and blood sugars. No two plans are the same. This will be built around sustainability for a healthy lifestyle for the LONG RUN.
You receive a program that is cookie cutter and generic – since it worked for someone else with diabetes, it must work for you as well, right?
CUSTOMIZED EXERCISE PLAN
We will develop an exercise program for you that will move you closer to your goal, around whatever time, equipment, and parameters you give us. The program will maximize your time while improving both strength and cardiovascular health. It will meet you where you are at, so we build a foundation properly.
You will receive VERY general recommendations as to the amount of exercise you should perform per day, with no specificity regarding your goals, style of training, or any how-to with respect to clarity or direction.
This approach will provide you with freedom and flexibility to enjoy your favorite foods and keep your blood sugars under control.
Focus predominantly on carb counting and limiting certain foods, leading to a dysfunctional relationship with food and feeling like certain foods are “off limits”…which is unsustainable.
FOCUS ON PERFORMANCE AND SUSTAINABILITY
Getting clients to achieve their body composition AND diabetes goals while eating the MOST food possible and doing the LEAST amount of cardio. Results are lasting and sustainable, and diabetes is always at the forefront of the equation.
Low calorie, starvation type diets (800-1000 calories/day) that leave clients lacking energy, wreak havoc on blood sugars and ultimately lead to gaining the weight back.
MULTIPLE LAYERS OF ACCOUNTABILITY
Clients have weekly check-ins, daily messaging support with us, and private Q&A sessions to interact with others on a similar journey, so it is impossible to fall off the path to success.
One and done consults where you are given a plan and sent on your way, with infrequent (if any) follow-ups, fine-tuning, or troubleshooting.
