Personal Health Coaching
Health Coaching-What you Get:
Course Documents & Informational Handouts: Each client will receive all program materials and informational handouts to help you achieve your goals. These include a variety of illustrated PDFs that outline the eating plan, foods to eat and why, foods to avoid and why, recipes, healthy lifestyle tips, and other information that will help you reach your goals. You will also get shopping lists, recipes, and tips and tricks to help set you up for long-term success.
Facebook Support Group Membership: Based on my personal experience, I have found that the support of a community of individuals is invaluable. Whether your goals are dietary in nature or not, the support of like-minded individuals can greatly improve your chances of success. Therefore, I have created a Facebook community in which members can go to exchange ideas with each other, share obstacles, and support each other along the way. The Facebook group can be an invaluable tool for those who use it as far as gaining a sense of community and support as you begin your new health journey. I also monitor the Facebook page and update it periodically with recipes, tips, and encouragement. I can provide answers to questions, and other members are also encouraged to share tips and tricks that may have helped them along the way. By helping each other, we all win!
3 Comprehensive Health Coaching Calls: These can be weekly, biweekly, or monthly, depending on each person’s time constraints and personal needs. During these phone calls, I will conduct a detailed analysis of your current dietary intake, as well as give a detailed explanation of the new eating plan and why it works. Clients are encouraged to ask as many questions as they'd like, and I will be tailoring each eating plan to fit each client's needs, goals, and dietary restrictions. Based on your current diet, I can diagnose areas that may be sabotaging your health/energy/weight loss goals, as well as provide recommendations that will help you more easily transition to a healthier eating plan. At each successive phone call, we will review your progress since the previous phone call and troubleshoot any issues or questions you may have encountered along the way. New information will also be introduced at each phone call so that each client will have the knowledge they need to make smart health choices for themselves and their families by the time they "graduate" from the program.
Ongoing coaching support: Clients will be given my email address and phone number, and they are free (encouraged!) to call, text, or email with any questions they may have along the way for the duration of 3 months. Are you at the store and need help picking out a supplement? Are you unsure of the ingredients in a food or beverage item? Do you need help planning a meal? Just text or email me! Phone calls must be scheduled, but texts and emails will be responded to as soon as I am able. Whether you have questions or simply need encouragement along the way, I am here to help you! I want to help you achieve your goals! After the three month period, I am still happy to support clients with their health coaching questions in our private Facebook community.
WHAT ARE PEOPLE SAYING?
Susana M. G. , Colombia
When I moved to the United States and started eating a standard American diet, I started to feel very tired during the afternoon, and I always needed to have a cup of coffee around 4pm to make it through the day. After discussing my diet with Laura, she was able to pinpoint what was causing my fatigue and how to replace it with food that strengthened my body, rather than depleting it. She provided me with personalized dietary tips and recipes in a way that worked great for me and my schedule. Her diet wasn’t boring or unpleasant, either, as most diets are, and I actually had more time in the evenings to do what I liked because of her time-saving and food prep tips. Suddenly, I was able to power through each day with energy to spare!
As far as the experience working with Laura, you can tell that Laura is a very professional and well-educated person who loves not only everything about nutrition, but who also loves to help others.
At the end of the day, that’s exactly what the results show: a person who won’t judge you and who won’t treat you like you’re just another client. When you receive health coaching from Laura, you get not only a nutrition expert, but also a person who is filled with love, who wants the best for you. Laura is someone who is constantly researching, expanding her knowledge, and stays abreast current research and nutrition topics. She easily explained to me the biochemical metabolism of every food and how to eat to stay healthy. She listens to how you feel, what you like, and she gives you the best recipes ever! She makes amazing desserts and snacks that are both delicious and healthy. If you had asked me a year ago that if I believed in delicious and healthy food at the same time, I would have said it doesn’t exist until I met Laura.
