Mark, what’s the scope of your service
and what’s involved with weight loss coaching?
After an initial consultation, we help our clients set goals for weight loss and we customize a solution to help them meet their goals. The solutions we offer involve education and science-based nutrition and supplementation. We guide them through this process to ensure their success.
How did you and Joycee get
involved with healthy coaching?
Joycee’s congenital birth defect resulted in unwanted weight gain. In order to eliminate or at least postpone another surgery weight loss was necessary. When Joycee and I met, we found a common interest in wellness through proper nutrition.
How’s your approach different than other weight loss programs?
It’s customized for each individual. Through education, nutrition, supplementation, and body composition, our clients effect lifestyle changes that are long-lasting.
What are some of the key tenants of good nutrition relevant to weight loss and good health?
Low-glycemic impact and load are critical. The frequency of meals and snacks along with proper hydration and sleep are also important.
Where do supplements fit in and how about fitness?
Nutrients in the soil are greatly depleted therefore supplementation is essential for everyone. Because of the delivery method, we offer the most potent and effective nutraceuticals taken orally. We also focus on body composition because building muscle helps improve metabolism.
Can you share some insights about the psychological dimension of losing weight?
Self-esteem and weight go hand in hand. Our customized program becomes a personal relationship that doesn’t end when a goal weight is reached. Our testimonials speak to the effectiveness of our approach.
What is the 21-day challenge?
It’s a three phase program designed to reestablish a healthy gut followed by a nutritionally dense menu to change the palate. This is sometimes sufficient to lose up to 15 pounds. More importantly, it changes the metabolism, which is the foundation for a healthy lifestyle. Learn more on our website or call us at 941-941-681-0682.
Where are you and Joycee originally from and what brought you here?
Joycee is from New Jersey and moved here to enjoy the beautiful weather. I’ve been in Florida since I was a toddler and I settled in Englewood in 1994. We met through friends and found many common interests especially helping people through nutrition.
What do you enjoy most about your work as health coaches?
Helping people live healthier and longer lives is deeply satisfying. We do our best to improve the lives of everyone we meet.
