What Is A Weight Loss Coach?

So, you want to be on a weight loss program. A weight loss program that actually works for someone like you. A program that is tailored to your specific needs, teaches you all about healthy yet delicious foods, whether that means driving to the gym or reaching those weight loss goals in the comfort of your own home.

Lucky for you, I am here to help! There are some things you need to know before you set out on your weight loss journey, though. If you incorporate them all into your weight loss journey, you’ll be well on your way to reaching the best version of yourself.

Work With A Weight Loss Coach

I know, I know. I know you’ve heard this one a thousand times before. But that’s because working with a weight loss coach is so vitally important for most people’s weight loss success. It doesn’t matter how much time and effort you put into the right exercise and nutrition regimens – if you’re not seeing results because your weight loss program is boring or miscalculated, you might as well not have started at all.

Your weight loss journey is personal. It doesn’t have to be inspirational or exciting – of course, it helps if it is. But tailoring a weight loss program based on a few simple minutes with me, Auteum Lake, can make all the difference in the world.

For example, research has shown that accountability matters in every person’s weight loss journey. There are many explanations for this – some say it’s because you have a “hype” friend rather than keeping it to yourself. Psychology says it’s because compliments and praise may help us when it comes to learning new motor skills and behaviors. In the end, you know what to expect. Whatever the reason, working with a weight loss coach works – which is why more psychology-based weight loss programs are popular in 2022.

But what is a weight loss coach?

In short, a weight loss coach is someone who specializes in helping you meet your weight loss goals. A weight loss coach helps improve your diet while tailoring a realistic exercise plan around your lifestyle and weight loss goals.

Once you’ve persuaded yourself to get started, the next step is keeping yourself motivated, and focused. And that first week is all-important in determining what direction your weight loss journey will go in. Or if you can even stick with going at it alone. You’ve got to be prepared.

What exactly constitutes being prepared? Try a question – it’s not about the answers but about the better questions, because our natural response is to look for an answer. Besides, nothing breaks people down quickly like a weight loss program people can’t visually see becoming a reality. Experiment with writing down what your reasons are for your weight loss journey, and what you feel would work best when working with a weight loss coach.

3 Weight Loss Myths Versus Facts

Losing weight doesn’t have to be difficult because we already have most of the answers for you. Here are a few extra answers: weight loss myths versus facts. Let’s start off with a popular weight loss myth.

Myth #1: Avoiding carbs is the only way to go.

Fact: Simply put, avoiding carbohydrates is not the way to go if you hope to eat a healthy diet.

Did you know the 2015 Dietary Guidelines for Americans recommend three eating patterns? They are the U.S. style, Mediterranean style, and Vegetarian style.

“Carbohydrate-rich foods, such as vegetables (including beans and peas), fruits, and whole grains, are the foundation of each of these healthy eating patterns” states Andrea Dunn, RD, LD, CDE.

Basically, avoiding carbs will plummet your fiber intake.

Myth #2: Obesity is a choice, not biology.

Fact: Simply put, obesity is an incredibly complex disorder with many layers of contributing factors. Things like hypothyroidism, PCOS, and even depression are just a few short examples of what can cause obesity, making it harder to lose weight.

One common factor leading to obesity is leptin resistance. Basically, it’s a hormone that tells you whether you’re full or not. Leptin resistance can make you feel as though you’re starving.

Don’t worry, though: losing weight is still possible through weight loss coaching.

Myth #3: Gluten-Free, Gluten-Free, Gluten-Free.

Fact: Gluten-free foods hold less fiber, leaving you to feel less full which leads to more overeating. In fact, Gluten-free diets started off for those with celiac disease.
