I find it interesting that among workout clothes, flowers and candles, some of my clients gave me peanut butter themed candy for my birthday.
Do you think they know me well? lol
Some of these clients have lost anywhere between 10lbs-50 lbs while working with me, focusing on making healthy choices and controlling their caloric intake, while treating themselves from time to time on their favorite foods.
We focused on creating a healthy and positive relationship with food.
We focused on not eliminating food groups from the diet as long as they can control the intake
We focused on foods being neutral, not good or bad.
We focused on creating a relaxing, joyful, social food experience, with no guilt or shame attached.
Most importantly, we focused on mental and emotional health *along* physical health because we care about long term success and the lifestyle modification, not a 6-week-quick-fix.
And this is the reason, as a trainer and as a nutrition coach, I’m proud to say my clients gave me candy for my bday🥰
