Yes! I have clients all over the world!

Do I have to wait until the next start date to join?

The best part about this program is you get everything you need to get going the minute you sign up! You will receive you the comprehensive guide and prep week info immediately so you can start practicing until your session opens! I am available via email to answer any questions before we get going in the private group!

Do you provide an actual meal plan for each day?

The goal is to teach you macro management so you can eat the foods you enjoy and are not stuck to the same plan week after week! However, meal planning and meal prep will be a big part of this program and therefore I will provide sample lunch and dinner recipes options with a detailed grocery list and meal prep instruction each week! This is super helpful!

Are there any foods that aren’t allowed or required?

Nothing is off limits! My goal is to teach you more about healthy eating and the importance of whole food nutrition. With this education you will see food group like gluten and dairy are problematic for many and decrease weight loss. Therefore we will aim to be gluten and dairy free as much as possible but progress not perfection!

Can I still drink alcohol?

Duh! My goal is to teach you sustainable lifestyle changes including how to incorporate social activities and still be successful, this will include alcohol! Once you understand how alcohol impacts your metabolism and weight loss you will be able to better manage and adjust your intake so that you still see results!

What is intermittent fasting?

Intermittent fasting is an advance nutritional strategy that involves limiting your eating window to 6-8 hours each day. It is not so much about what you eat, but when you eat! When we limit our eating window it forces the body to break down stored fat on a daily basis which increase weight loss and makes keeping the weight off so much easier!

I have done atkins and keto. Is this the same thing?

No this is not the same as atkins and keto. We focus on whole food nutrition with marco management. Carbs will be a macro we look at daily but carbs will not be completely off limits! This program will teach you how to find that proper balance with the foods you love to eat and the foods you know you need to eat!

What does macro management mean?

Macros are simply carbohydrates, proteins and fats. Many people get wrapped up in controlling calories and the old saying calories in vs calories out, but we now know does not promote weight loss. It is far more important to look at how the body and endocrine system processes the food we eat, specially carbs and sugars! In order to lose weight you have to keep your insulin levels low, insulin is the number one fat storing hormone in the body. When insulin levels are high we will store fat! So we use macro management to control the intake of carbs and sugars, to keep our blood glucose level in check and therefore reduce the production of insulin. This is what leads to great weight loss results! And the good news is you don’t have to give up carbs altogether to get these results! So my goal is to teach you how to manage YOUR macros for long term success!

Do I need to be a member of a gym?

No! Workouts can be done at home or in the gym.

What equipment is needed?

A few dumbbells or kettlebell! A few low weights like 5-10 lbs and one set of higher weights 15-20 lbs and jump rope should be perfect to get you started! Check your craigslist or facebook marketplace for a cheap way to find equipment.

Can I continue my own workouts or do i have to do the ones you provide?

For sure you can continue your own workouts! Any exercise is better than no exercise at all! This program is very flexible! Doing exercise you like and enjoy is important!

Do we have to have facebook?

No! Everything is now ran through my new app!

Do we meet in person?

No, everything is done online!

Will I need to buy any additional products to do the program?

NO! No shakes, pills or potions involved! We focus on whole food nutrition! However, there are products that I will recommend BUT they are not mandatory nor necessary to be successful with this plan!

What if I can’t exercise?

Diet is 80% so that will be our main focus. If you can’t exercise or need to modify the exercises you can still be very successful! 25% of my clients do zero exercise and still see great results!

I’m trying to get pregnant. Should I still sign up or wait?

For sure! There are no gimmicks with this program! It is all about healthy eating, whole food nutrition and increased activity! You will be in a much better place to get pregnant after implementing these guidelines! And if you get pregnant while in the program there are just a few small tweaks we will make so you can continue!

Can I still do the program pregnant or while nursing?

Yes, with a few modifications you will do great! I work with tons of BF moms and have a whole section devoted to your tweaks and guidelines so that you can get the benefits of the program, lose weight and still maintain a good milk supply which is our number one goal! If you start the program and your supply is impacted then we will just delay, and you can restart once you are done BF! So no loss if that happens!

I don't want to lose weight just tone up. Is this program still good for me?

YES! This program will get your feeling leaner with more energy! We can easily tweak your macros for that very thing!

I’m going on vacation. Should I wait to sign up?

No! Just do it! The goal is to teach you sustainable nutritional practice that you can easily do when you are home or away! Don’t wait!
