You’re working out like crazy and yet the scale seems to be increasing? Learn why and how to determine what the scale is telling you.
This session is the core of the “Be the Boss of Your Weight Loss” program. In this session you will learn the basics of nutrition that most people think they know, but usually don’t (or are misinformed on). This session will lay the foundation for the remainder of the program…you won’t want to miss this! You will learn what are the basic food groups, what foods are found in each group, the role of each in terms of nutrition and weight loss, portion sizes, and more! In addition, we will work on setting some realistic and attainable goals, as well as start to carve your individual path. You will leave this session with several goals to work on, possibly some homework and feeling motivated!
In this session you will learn how to lose the fat and still keep the things you want in your diet! Sounds too good to be true? It’s not and you’ll learn why! In this workshop, you will gain a better understanding of what exactly metabolism is, what it means in terms of fat loss. You will learn how the metabolism works and what affects it and simple things you can do to increase yours. You will figure out exactly what your energy and nutrients needs are, as well as how to change these as needed. Lastly, you will learn how certain diets and eating plans affect your metabolism and determine the best course of action for you.
This session will focus on how to maximize your nutrient intake for optimal health and increased energy, all while watching the pounds melt away! You will learn how to balance your plate with foods from each food group that are proven to keep you feeling full, satisfied and never deprived. Long will be the days of the 3 o’clock slump or uncontrollable cravings! You will leave this workshop with a personalized meal plan based on your individual needs, food preferences and tailored to your day. Finally you can take the guesswork out of eating for weight loss!
When it comes to losing weight, what you eat makes a huge difference. However, exercise and how you exercise makes a significant impact on your progress. Exercise can make or break how quickly you reach your goals and what the end product looks like (your physique). There are specific types of exercise that are proven for quick weight loss results that you will learn about during this session. Your dietitian and trainer will work with you on putting together a fun, yet challenging workout routine for you to follow on your own!
Healthy eating and weight loss depends on making the right choices in the grocery store. “Grocery Shopping for Weight Loss” will go beyond shopping on the outer perimeter of the store. Your dietitian will guide you through the grocery store tour aisle-by-aisle teaching you about the right (and wrong) foods to help you reach your weight loss goal. You will learn how to read and make sense of food labels, what is the MOST important factors to consider when purchasing items, which foods are fat traps and how to avoid them, which foods will help you on your weight loss journey, which foods are not worth the hype and specific food recommendations
In today’s grab and go society, healthy eating can seem impossible. Often times we are unable to prepare home-cooked meals so our only option is to eat out. It’s easier and less time consuming, but is it necessarily healthier? Luckily, it can be healthy; it’s all about the choices you make. After this session, you will never have to deal with the confusion over what to eat when dinning out, nor feel guilty about what you ate. You will learn how to confidently identify your best options when getting a quick bite to eat or sitting down for a nice dinner. You’ll even learn how to prepare quick, easy and delicious meals and snacks that will keep you fueled while on the go! During this workshop we will review menus from your favorite restaurants and practice choosing or creating the best options that won’t break your caloric bank!
“When I first started at Elite, I was finally ready to take charge of my health and commit to improving it, but I didn’t have a clue what to do or how to do it. My diabetes and high blood pressure were barely controlled and my triglycerides were sky-high. I needed guidance that I could trust, both nutritionally and physically. The entire team at Elite has earned that trust many times over by teaching me so many things, like what to eat, when to eat it, how much to eat, how to exercise, how to plan meals, how often to exercise, how not to give up, and above all things, how to change deeply ingrained bad mental habits. Without that guidance I would be going in circles forever, never getting anywhere, and probably dying young. Since starting Elite in May 2014, I’ve lost nearly 50 pounds, lowered my resting heart rate, blood pressure, blood sugar, and triglycerides, gotten off two medications and reduced one, and lost four sizes. I even lost a foot width and a shoe size, and dang if I know how THAT happened. It is very common now for people to think I am at least 10 years younger than I really am, and I feel younger and stronger, too. My family has been with me every step of the way through this journey and is eating much more healthily, and my husband’s lost 15 pounds as well. For someone who just didn’t have the know-how and experience to do this by myself, Elite has proven to be a lifesaver, and I mean that literally; so does my doctor.”
