I have tried lots of different diets and fitness programs in the past. How is this different? 2017-03-28T23:01:14+00:00

Health coaching is a little like life coaching. The reason it works differently than other things you have tried is because the focus is creating behavior change related to food choices and exercise in very small, incremental steps. There is nothing fancy or complicated about the program and one small change builds on the previous one to create momentum which is the premises behind creating lasting, solid habits.

Is the program time consuming? 2017-03-25T12:44:22+00:00

Making behavior change which may include a change in your eating habits and your exercise habits can take some additional time. This will depend on where we are starting from. In general the additional time can be in the form of food prep and exercise. Working up to 30 minutes of fitness 5-6 days a week(minimum) could also be new for you.
