Advantages Of Using A Coach For Weight Loss

By Phil Proctor

At any given time roughly 10% of the population is trying to lose weight. There are literally hundreds of different diet and weight loss programs for a person to choose from. Because we are each unique one program does not fit all. A good coach will greatly improve your chances of success.

My experiences been that most people know what they need to do to lose weight. Most people are aware that they have to make changes in their lifestyle. It is very helpful to have someone that can help you through the maze of choices that you have.

The majority of people travel a path of least resistance.They are very happy to maintain the status quo. We are all apprehensive about change, because we do not know what the change will bring. Many times change has unintended consequences. A change in one area of your life will impact every other area to a greater or lesser degree. If you do not have someone to affirm what you are doing, your chances of success are greatly diminished.

I have found it rather surprising that the majority of the people who are desiring to lose weight are doing so for emotional reasons, rather than their physical health. Extra pounds tend to lower one’s self-esteem.

Many people are surprised to learn that they may not be eating enough of the right foods to lose weight. One does not have to go hungry to lose weight. Much of our highly processed food today has a high caloric density, but a rather low nutrient density.

Our emotions play a huge role in the amount of food that we consume. Many people when they are bored or depressed turn to food. Many times when you’re stressed we will tend to snack. The bigger the snacks the larger your slacks.

It is been said that our beliefs determine our actions. A good coach will help you modify your beliefs. Much of what we eat we because of habit. Our habits are the products of our beliefs. Many times we have little or no idea of where our beliefs came from, but nonetheless they are very important to us. Many times beliefs are built on false information. It seems that every day science is finding something that was believed to be true yesterday is not true. Many times our beliefs are rooted in our spiritual being. If you profess to be a Christian I would strongly recommend that you use a Christian coach.

A good coach does not simply deal with diet and nutrition. They will help you establish an appropriate exercise program as well. I have yet to find a weight loss program that is not at least enhanced with exercise. If you do not enjoy the exercise you will not do it. Many times adding a social dimension to an exercise program makes it much more successful.

When an individual is losing weight there is a need to understand that your body is detoxifying as you are losing weight. A good coach will recommend quality supplements that will both nourish your system and assistant detoxification.

In conclusion a good coach can guide you through many pitfalls and greatly enhance your potential success. He can help you understand why many things have limited success. He will encourage and affirm you toward your goal.
