I tell my personal training clients on our very first session, "I am not the magic pill. The scale will not change just because I show up 2 times a week." It takes a lot of hard work and commitment to lose weight. Exercise AND healthy eating have to go hand in hand to achieve any sustainable weight loss. You can ask any of my clients who have shed substantial pounds. They will all agree that they had to make wise dietary choices in addition exercising regularly.
I have gone through my own struggle with weight throughout the years. Exercise was never a problem for me. I LOVE to sweat and move and feel sore the next day! But my weight would go up and down even though I was active, and it was incredibly frustrating. I was not eating the things my body needed to maintain a healthy weight. I would stave my self thinking it would help. I was eating nothing but granola bars and drinking coffee. Eventually I would breakdown and binge on pizza or ice cream. It was my lack of knowledge that was holding me back. Even the Food Pyramid that I leaned about in elementary school was out dated and incorrect. As I began to read more about nutrition I learned the importance of a diet full (and I mean REALLY FULL) of fruits and veggies. I learned the dangers of processed and fatty foods. And I learned that I could still eat the ice cream...as long as it was eaten in moderation. Now I maintain a healthy weight and I never have to stave myself!
We all have different life experiences and struggles, so I wanted to connect with a professional who I would feel comfortable referring my clients to for nutritional advice. That's why I contacted Rachel Venokur-Clark from Renew Nutrition. Rachel is a holistic nutritionist who has had great success in helping clients reach their weight loss goals.
