Sure! But not like you might think.
If weight loss and better health were as simple as eating at a caloric deficit, we would have all been skinny years ago and Weight Watchers would only offer a 6 month membership. We would eat whatever we wanted, go jog around the block, and be done with it. But we know it doesn't work that way.
Contrary to what the CICO-paths believe, (CICO =Calories In Calories Out) not all calories are equal. There is a vast difference in the way our body reacts to 100 calories of lettuce, 100 calories of steak, and 100 calories of sugar. The body will not behave in the exact same way eating 1500 calories of mostly fat and protein, as it will when you're eating 1500 calories of mostly carbs. This is why calorie counting is so ineffective for so many people.
What does happen from consistently eating at a caloric deficit, though, is metabolic damage. This can manifest itself in weak, brittle nails, hair loss, and stalled weight loss, among other things. Our coaches will always encourage you to eat to at least your BMR or Basal Metabolic Rate to avoid metabolic damage. You can find out how to determine yours by going to the pinned post in the Ketogenic Success group.
If you need further assistance determining your BMR, or your macronutrient and caloric needs, consider our Macros Evaluation Service. We go in-depth, and factor in more than those online calculators can.
Whether part of a limited time group or continuing month-to-month coaching, our coaching clients have great things to say about their coaching experiences!
I gifted myself coaching with Elaina. I love it! It helps hold me accountable and she steers me in the right direction. Very much needed on my journey.
Ketogenic Lifestyle Coaching has changed my life. This is not something I say lightly. I went from prediabetic, obese, and frustrated from 40 years of failed diets and “I will start on this new diet on Monday” to normal weight, perfect blood glucose, amazing energy, and some bonuses like my allergies are gone, my skin looks 15 years younger, and chronic digestive issues are a thing of the past. More importantly, with the support of my coach I have stopped dieting and started living!
As hard as it may seem, you can do it! Jessyca Reynolds helped me get to my goal of losing 100lbs for my sisters wedding by last month. Trust the process. You can do it!
Group coaching helps you not feel alone in your keto journey. I started out with one on one coaching and it was extremely beneficial, but I feel like I am learning even more from group coaching. It's great to hear the things others are going through and help provide support while learning how to navigate a situation like that in the future, and of course to have others there to celebrate in your successes! I plan to utilize the coaching services until I reach my goals. I don't think I would be moving in such a positive direction without coaching.
I started working with Tiffany December 1 of 2021 the toughest month ever. I needed to get back on track with keto after gaining 30 pounds during the Covid pandemic. I lost 10 pounds in the month of December which is amazing. Before I started with her, I was all over the snacks in the office and kept saying I’ll start next month. She promised tough coaching with accountability. She has definitely done both. We have weekly phone calls and daily emails and in an emergency I have her number for tax. She is worth every penny because I definitely needed to get myself on track. No negativity, just constructive ideas on how to implement this way of life easier and more sustainable. I wholeheartedly recommend her coaching. She’s very relatable and active on Instagram, which makes it a lot easier for me to stay focused. I am still learning, but I am confident that with her help I'll meet my goal, and continue this lifestyle with minimal blips in the road. Thanks coach!
