You are the driver of your car, taking a new journey on the road to Wellness. You’re enjoying the scenery and your own company, you believe you’re fuelled up properly and that you have all the knowledge and equipment you need to reach your destination. You’ve seen the stories of other people reaching Wellness, too, and you can’t wait to get there!
However you keep coming across roadblocks, potholes, other cars that have broken down on their own journey to Wellness, and the road signs seem to be quite misleading and confusing. You keep pulling over to read the map again, but there are so many differing routes, and the number of times you have to stop and turn around because you took a wrong turn is driving you mad! Your car is suffering along the way, and you start wondering if you used the right kind and amount of fuel. Destination Wellness seems to be elusive.
You need a navigator! Somebody who can keep their eyes on the map for you and advise you on the best course of action in any given circumstances.
Your navigator knows the different routes that exist because they’ve travelled to destination Wellness many times before with other drivers who have had different starting points and had cars with differing capacities. Your navigator will encourage you to keep going, even when you feel as though you’re going in the wrong direction, because their confidence is substantiated by experience and knowledge. They can also advise you on fuel, rest, speed, cornering, and give information about your current position so that you can understand and enjoy the journey.
You always have complete control of the car. Thankfully, your navigator will never try to take the wheel out of your hands, or try to gain control of the brake or the accelerator; that’s because your navigator wants you to feel empowered to make decisions about the journey, based on their reliable information and vast experience. You choose whether you listen to your navigator or not, and the consequences of those choices belong to you; a driver knows that ignoring his or her navigator could result in late arrival, wrong destination, breakdowns, etc. A driver also knows that following the directions of his or her navigator means they can relax about the journey and just do the driving!
You guys know I’m talking about getting a coach, right? If you’ve tried and tried, but don’t seem to be getting anywhere with your attempts at making a ketogenic diet work for you, you might want to take a look at getting a navigator to help you on your way!
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!
For a person who has struggled all her life with yo-yo diets for the first time since finding keto and Ketogenic Lifestyle Coaching I can say I have officially committed to a lifestyle of eating. After 1.5 years of being strict keto I am still learning from the coaches. I stick with Ketovangelist because of the knowledge, support, and guidance they provide.
My coach Elaina Wang, is the reason why KETO is now getting the results I never got doing keto by the book before. Best decision ever.
I want to give a shout out to my Ketogenic Lifestyle Coach, she has been amazing at helping me continue the journey and meet my goals. Thank you for all of your help and wisdom! Getting a coach to help me has been my favorite choice of self care so far!
I would recommend coaching to anyone wanting to get Keto "down pat." I met with Linda via the computer once a week and she helped answer my questions; suggested resources such as websites, books and recipes; helped with macros; provided much needed support and so much more.
I knew that I personally needed accountability and by having once a week meetings, she held me to that while I adjusted to the changes in my life due to Keto.
I don’t know if I can adequately express how much has shifted for me since working with Keto Coach Michelle Hurn, R.D., L.D! Initially Michelle helped get me on track by clarifying the appropriate amount of food I should be eating (and in what proportions) for my active lifestyle. But the real magic was further along – when Michelle kindly but clearly helped me challenge long held, rigid disordered eating beliefs and behaviors that I didn’t even realize I still had. I am beyond grateful to have separated from old beliefs and behaviors that were holding me back, even when I was compliant on the ketogenic meal plan. I am able to be more emotionally present for myself, my family and my professional life in a way that has brought me tremendous peace of mind. I am enjoying my meals now, but hardly thinking about food at all anymore - and that is a true miracle in my life!
