The health of Americans is steadily declining despite the amount of money spent on health care, high-technology medicine, and education. Diabetes and obesity rates continue to sky-rocket among adults and children.
Unless we wake up and take responsibility for our own health and nutrition, the pattern will continue. A health coach will listen to you and guide you in making choices in food and nutrition that will improve your health once and for all.
Here are the top 10 reasons you need a health coach now:
- New Year’s Resolutions
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. Make a resolution every day when you wake up to improve your health. A health coach will show you how to make small changes that will build up to a lifetime of good health.
- Unexplained weight gain.
Over the years the extra few pounds have stayed on you, but you are not eating any differently. There are many dietary changes that you need, but you don’t know where to start. A health coach will help you identify the easiest changes to make today that will make the biggest impact on your health.
- Cravings out of control
You figure that you don’t have any control over the cravings so you just give in, every time, year after year. A health coach will help you identify the cause of the cravings and enable you to beat your cravings or binge eating.
- So many fad diets and you are desperate to 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. A health coach will teach you how to make healthy decisions one meal at a time!
- 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. A health coach will help empower you to finally take care of yourself and teach you the importance of making yourself a priority.
- Stress from ‘all the things.’
If you suffer from stress or anxiety, a health coach will teach you about the relationship between stress and chronic disease, how to reset your priorities, and how to get your stress under control.
- Food confusion – you don’t know 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? A health coach will help you determine what foods are healthy for YOU and what will work for YOU.
- 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. A health coach can help you wade through the mountains of nutrition research to figure out what works for you and your health.
- It’s not about being ‘skinny’ or just losing weight.
It’s about eating healthy and giving your body the nutrients it needs to survive, to prevent disease/illness and gain energy and to just function especially as you get older. It’s all in the science.
- L.E.A.N. – Lifestyle, Exercise, Attitude & Nutrition
There is a direct correlation between having a positive mindset/attitude, self-love and stress reduction and successful weight loss. In many case, people are eating healthy and are active but stressful situations in their lives could be preventing them from getting the results they desire.
Dr. Sears Wellness Institute teaches the L.E.A.N. approach – Lifestyle, Exercise, Attitude and Nutrition. These four keys areas need to work together to get the results you are trying to achieve.
Do something healthy for yourself today and talk to a health coach! Your life and health will improve, and you will feel better!
