Finding time for yourself is never easy, but if you can commit to just 15 minutes each week we know this can have a remarkable influence on your weight.
It will also help your general wellbeing as well as your emotional health. How do we know this?
After 20 years of working with women in Australia and New Zealand (most are 35 to 65) and helping them achieve lasting results that some have never been able to achieve before doing our program, we are confident that we can help you too.
We won’t ask you to do endless exercise or to starve yourself. Most weight loss programs require massive willpower to put up with hunger. And if you’ve tried to exercise yourself slim, you’ve discovered what the science says. Exercise is essential for your health, but it’s not an effective way to lose weight.
Most women have tried at least once to try to lose weight, and many have had some success only to put it all back on and then some more.
Why does this happen?
By reducing calorie intake (starving and always hungry) and/or increasing calorie expenditure (more and more exercise) most people will lose weight. But if you haven’t learnt what the best foods for your body are, it won’t be sustainable.
Plus, you’ll need a way to develop new habits to maintain the new way of eating and the mindset to go with it. Then you’ll need to learn what type of exercise and how much your body needs. This all helps prevent weight regain.
Most people would give up. And they do, until they have either a significant health issue or an important upcoming event like a 50th birthday or being Mother of the Bride.
There are many reasons why we might be triggered into action again.
If this sounds familiar, would you like a better experience this time?
There is no one-size-fits-all program. Just like we can tolerate different levels of sun exposure, our bodies have different levels of carbohydrate tolerance. This means that some may be able to eat loads of starchy carbohydrates and some of us only very low-carb carbohydrates.
We’re all unique. Here’s an example. Although strawberries are a low sugar fruit, they actually trigger an unusual rise in blood sugar in some people.
The Healthy Inspirations ICT Reset program teaches you to find your carb tolerance so that you can continue to eat the foods that you (and your family) enjoy and fits with your lifestyle. Your personal eating program allows flexibility and provides the foundation for health, wellness, and being at your best weight.
And the best part of all, we guarantee that you’ll lose weight without being hungry. You will have to do some work (buying the food and preparing easy, delicious, satisfying meals) but with your coaches help and accountability the process will be made as easy as possible for you.
Working with your health coach will take 15 minutes of your time each week. You will have a recurring appointment, either in person or online via Zoom. During this time your coach will monitor your progress, answer any questions you have, help with challenging situations, offer tips and strategies, and provide recipe ideas to keep your taste-buds happy while working towards your goals.
Many of our members tell us:
“Having committed to the program the weekly session with my coach makes me show up! This accountability is just what I need to stay on-plan and stay focused.”
So now let’s discuss exercise! How much, how often and what type is best for weight loss?
For some who do not do any exercise you may just start with the weekly coaching. There are people who struggle to do any form of exercise, even walking, so until some weight has been lost and you start feeling more energetic, then may be the time to start.
If you are attending in-centre we’ll help you get started on a simple resistance circuit which will start to shape and tone your body. It’s easy to gradually build up to 30 minutes if needed, though you may also like to try a range of classes for variety.
Walking around your neighbourhood is also a great way to start exercise. Start with walking after every meal. Just walk 5 minutes in one direction and then back, making it 10 minutes. Do this every day and increase the time when you feel comfortable. Adding some stairs or hills adds variety and intensity as you get fitter and want a challenge.
Do you think you can find 15 minutes a week to spend on yourself?
