Every guru out there has his own diet/regime/program/nonsense he or she wants to promote and each of them is superior, right?
But they all have clients for whom the diet worked, so it must be good, right?
Nope, that's not the case. Let me explain why the one-size-fits-all approach is utter nonsense, when it comes to weight loss and nutrition.
What is bio-individuality
To keep it short, bio-individuality means that everybody is different. Each and every one of us has unique needs. Nobody gets the same results by eating the same kind of foods and/or doing the same exercises.
See, what is medicine for the one person can be "poison" for another.
Why can studies be so controversial?
Nutrition is the only science where two contrary theories can both be proven true. But how is it even possible that one study can prove that dairy is an essential component of a healthy diet, while another proves it can be harmful?
The main problem with those studies is that the food industry is a big business, and therefore food conglomerates might influence the questions that are asks and the answers that are published.
The food industry leaves it's fingerprints on research. Plus, they push to adjust the way those studies are presented.
The one that suits you best
Again, everyone is different. Everyone has a different metabolism, taste, schedule and goal.
Just because a diet worked for somebody or even 3 billion people doesn't mean it works for you! Some people do very well on a ton of carbs, some do very well on a ton of fat.
Some do well on high glycemic foods, some crave sugar all day if they eat them. Some are super satiated from fat and protein, some will feel they haven't eaten anything.
It depends on your body
I'm sorry. There's no magic diet that you can follow to lose weight fast. There's just not. If somebody tells you there is, they're lying!
The problem with gurus and their diets is, that they always assume their diet is the best, just because it worked for them or/and some of their clients.
And honestly, their diet actually might work for you too. But it might as well not. Plus, as long as calories are equal, every diet works the same in terms of fat loss.
But, there's a difference in how you feel, how hungry you are and how your body reacts.
That's the important part! There are many factors that come into play, in order to decide which diet form suits you best. For that reason, I developed a questionnaire to give you an educated answer. I don't want to sell you any specific diet. I don't profit from telling you to eat paleo or gluten-free or only wood. I just want to help and restore trust in the fitness industry.
Every good nutritionist should consult with you, before he or she can come up with a diet regime. Anyone who sells his/her diet as THE diet is full of ... apples.
If we can do one thing to improve our health what should it be?
Nutrition is more complicated than that. However, if I have to pick one piece of advice that would definitely help a lot of people to feel much better, it would be to avoid drinking sugary drinks and alcohol. Not only are liquid calories faster to digest, so they don't keep you full for long - they are also super easy to over consume and mostly nutrient free.
In general, the only beverages you should consume are water, tea and coffee. All of which have essentially 0 calories.
But it doesn't make sense to just avoid one thing and trade it for another, like drinking alcohol or substituting cigarettes with e-cigarettes.
Get to the root of the problem
It's actually pretty simple: get to the root cause of why someone is overweight or feels tired all the time. So you don't just fix the symptoms, but the main cause. Short term and one-size-fits-all diets have all the same goal - mostly to reduce body fat, and not to fix your relationship with food.
That's why it's important to look at a person's whole life, including medical history, day-to-day life and food they eat and don't eat. This is one of the most important steps to create a unique meal plan that someone can sustain for the long time.
You want to solve the problem but don't know how do fix it?
Let me help you.
I am a professional diet coach, specialised in body fat reduction and overall healthy nutrition, working with clients all over the world, including personal trainers.
Nutrition is actually not that complicated. And it doesn't have to be restricted and boring! Plus, everyone is different. Everyone has a different metabolism, taste, schedule and goal. I take all these into consideration when creating the perfect meal plan and training schedule for you. There is no one-diet-fits-all. Vegetarians and vegans are welcome too, of course!
Based on carefully crafted questions, I determine which diet is best for you and your goals. I don't advocate any specific diet and don't profit in any way from recommending a specific diet - unlike many others in the fitness industry. I don't like crash diets and similar, unsustainable fads. Based on my years of experience, I will change the amount of calories in your diet only when necessary and useful for further progress! Everything I do is completely science based, using the latest research available.
My coaching is not just for losing fat and gaining muscle, however. It will help you by including foods that have a proven track record of helping with certain illnesses like diabetes, high blood pressure and even epilepsy, if appropriate. It's all about you and your body!
Interested? Let me know!
I will contact you as soon as possible and set up an appointment with you, so we can talk about your goals and how to reach them.
There's one common ground in human health studies: individualization. Our variability in responding to food is unique. Each and everyone of us already possesses the ability to find what works best for them. You just have to listen to your gut.
Experiment with different ways of eating and see how your body responds!
