The Advantage Of Using A Lifestyle Coach For Weight Loss
by Phil Proctor
The advantages of using a lifestyle coach for weight loss can be tremendous. It can very well mean the difference between success and failure. For the same reason that many athletes will pay large sums of money for a personal coach you need a coach for weight loss. A good coach has experienced similar problems in many people. This gives him a depth of perspective that is very difficult to achieve on your own. A good lifestyle coach will save you a great deal of time and reaching your goals.
If you are training to be in the Olympics you would want to find the best coach in your area of expertise to enhance your possibility of making the team. There are little things that you may be doing that a coach will see that you are not aware of. There are limiting factors in each of our lives that prevent us from reaching our maximum potential. Many of these limiting factors have existed in our lives for so long that we don't even know that there. Picture yourself in the room in a house and your goal is in the next room. There is a wall between you and your goal. Now picture a coach who stands in the doorway between you and your goal. As a coach keeps his eye on your goal he can guide you to success.
Most of us are aware that the standard American diet is not a healthy diet. We are so bombarded with media advertisements that we become confused and lose our focus. The reality is, that the recommendations for a healthy lifestyle have not changed in the last 50 years. Less than 10% of the population of the United States eats 5 to 6 servings of fruits and vegetables per day. Over 90% of all Americans are deficient in at least one essential nutrient. It is important to realize that we are all different and that what works for one person may not work for you. I good coach recognizes your individual differences and helps you design a program that is appropriate for you.
In 25+ years of lifestyle coaching I have seen many people who have made small changes in their lifestyle that have made a huge difference. For most people the only reason you don't reach your goal is because there is something else that is more important to you. There is not a person who is reading this who could not make hundred thousand dollars in the next year if they were focused enough on their goal. I've had many people write out their goals for me. When they write their excuse for not achieving a short-term goal it is usually because they have lost their focus. Something else came up that at the moment seemed more important. I have had many people along the way have lost a lot of battles, but because they have endured they won their war.
In effective lifestyle coaching it is important to address the total being. We consume many things that affect our performance. It is a combination of physical, mental, emotional, social, and our spiritual values or beliefs that ultimately will determine your success. If you are truly serious about weight loss you need to realize that it will affect every aspect of your life. Many times, and unwillingness to address one limiting factor will prevent you from achieving your goal.
You made lifestyle changes to get where you are today. To achieve lasting success you will have to make corrective lifestyle changes to reach your goal. An old Chinese proverb says," The journey of 1000 miles begins with a single step." That single set for you could be a lifestyle coach.
