MEASURING FAT LOSS OVER WEIGHT LOSS

This fixation with the scale is a pattern we see with clients often. It’s natural, but it’s also preventable. Rather than just suggesting that you don’t let the number on the scale bother you, today’s post dives a little deeper into how you can make the most of this (often inaccurate) measure of progress and other ways to determine the true changes you are experiencing on your fat loss journey.

THE POWER OF CHECK-INS

This week we’re talking check-ins. If you have a nutrition coach or really any kind of coach, you probably have some sort of regularly scheduled touch base with your coach to catch up about how things are going. So, other than checking the box off your to-do list (check-in: done) and a brief touch base with your coach, why are check-ins so important? Today we’re breaking it down and offering advice from a coaching perspective about how you as a client can get the most out of your check-ins.

TRACKING MACROS WHILE TRAVELING

When it comes to working towards specific nutrition goals, we talk a lot about creating habits and establishing a routine; unfortunately, travel can wreak havoc on our routine, leaving us feeling like we should just throw in the towel and start over again when we get back home.

It does, however, mean there may be some compromises to make on occasion.
