Why Have a Coach?

Article by Kimmi Katte

 

Picture this:
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!

After 1 month of struggling with when, what and how to eat ketogenically, I realized I needed help. I saw on one of the Keto FB pages that coaching was available. So I checked it out, chose a coach whose story resonated with me. That was Sabrina Rivers-Williams. One of the best decisions I've ever made!!

I love the coaching program! It’s really helped me refine my macros and get that extra “umph” of motivation that I was needing. Cost? Well, for pretty much unlimited support via email and the weekly one on one that I’ve purchased, the value CAN’T be beat!!! I encourage everyone to invest in themselves if you’ve been thinking about coaching at all...don’t wait a year like I did!!!

I have found the most success by having one on one coaching. It’s absolutely amazing how much it helps. I have insights that I never would have had before, motivation to keep going no matter what, and unlimited support. The fee I pay is so small compared to the rewards I get. I highly recommend it!!

I went through menopause at 40 and began to really struggle with my weight. I was no longer seeing success with the "normal" weight loss plans that had worked in my 20s and 30s and I was at my wit's end. I hired Katrina as my coach because I could not wrap my head around eating fat. I was terrified I would do it wrong and continue to gain. Figuring out the food ended up being the easy part - fixing my thinking and setting reasonable expectations for MY unique journey was where coaching was truly invaluable. I was a relatively slow loser and having Katrina help me understand why my progress was slow helped me stay the course. She also encouraged me focus on the non-scale benefits of Keto such as better sleep and no more aches and pains instead of being singularly focused on the scale. Thanks to Keto, I now feel better than I did in my 20s! Courtney (48 years old).

I've been vegan (even raw and fruitarian) and vegetarian for around 15 years. When I turned 40, my body just struggled. My hair fell out in clumps, my skin was very dry and felt like crepe throughout the day, my body was tired. Most people come to keto wanting to lose weight but, with Mary's help, I focused on nourishing myself. Mary taught me to trust the process and just eat to hunger. That was tough for me: I was afraid of eating so much, I was afraid of all the fat and calories. After a couple of months, I did gain weight but that came with thick hair, moisturised and nourished skin, abs that I never thought I could have, and no more carb face. I highly recommend getting a Ketoevangelist Coach and being part of this knowledgeable and supportive group!
