Invest in You – Leverage your Weight Loss Coach
Jazzing it up is so important on Phase 1. Phase 1 is setting the stage for life long habits. Sometimes people just go through the motions because they are losing weight and not hungry but if you don’t take the time to invest in learning to make great tasting food your transition to maintenance will be rocky!
People often say to us “It’s okay I’m good”. But that’s not the point, you are good for now but if you look at the reasons people regain a huge one is the build up of feeling deprived and not having enough easy go to recipes that make you and your body happy.
Having a weight loss coach is the heart of the program. We look out for you, notice the potential pitfalls and prepare you so you don’t end up “off the wagon”. Having a nourished body sets you up to easily enjoy ALL foods. Yes there is restriction in Phase 1 but it’s temporary. You are resetting your metabolism, unlearning some habits, creating new habits and setting the stage for a life long future of delicious eating.
So congrats on reading this and taking the time to make a new recipe.
