Trying to lose weight on your own? How do you sift through all the clutter of fad diets, friends’ advice, what used to work, aging and more?

You get a NUTRITION COACH! Just like a personal trainer, but specifically for nutrition.  As we close out our first 4-week challenge of 2016, Christine sent me her eye-opening experience.


“This Nutrition Challenge really worked for me. I wanted you to know that despite my rough start, including not losing anything at all in the first two weeks, I booked a personal meeting with Karen (RCFP Coach and Nutritionist).  I can’t believe what a difference it made. It was like a furnace turned on!

At first, I was reluctant to meet with her because when I initially sent her my meal journal, she wrote me back and told me I wasn’t eating enough and I was doing too much cardio and not enough strength training. You can imagine ME with a response like that. Fuck you! Who eats less, does more exercise and doesn’t lose weight? Ha! I will tell her a thing or two!

At our next appointment, Karen meticulously went through my meal plan and told me all the things I could improve upon. I was defensive, because a lot of what she said seeme

d picky, and I was positive I had followed the Challenge properly.  …Apparently not.

Although I was eating well, I wasn’t eating “balanced”.  I wasn’t having a carb, protein, and fat EVERY time I put something in my mouth. Was she serious? Couldn’t I just have a clementine from time to time? Nope. Carb, fat and protein every time, unless it was after a workout and then I could ditch the fat.  Well, colour me disgruntled.  But I decided I was going to follow her advice if for no other reason than to prove to her that she was being over-rigid and that her way wasn’t any better than my way.

Thankfully, I got my ass kicked.

I lost 6 lbs and 6.75 inches overall. Remember I said I didn’t lose anything for the first two weeks? That means all this loss is in the last TWO weeks. I am so glad I did that nutrition consultation. The girl knows what she’s talking about!”
