You Asked For It! Online Jumpstart Nutrition Coaching Seminar Saturday June 17, 2017

TRUE STORY.

For the first time ever we are bringing our Jumpstart Nutrition Coaching Seminar onto the Interweb! 🙂

We know it can be a challenge for you to get out of the house one more day, AND since we are nothing if not a little adventurous, we are going to give this whole Webinar thing a whirl. And if it works well, we will probably do it again.

On Saturday June 17 at 9:00am (you don't even have to get up early) you will have the opportunity for some world class nutrition coaching from Coach Nancy Carlson, Pn2.

Our Jumpstart Nutrition Coaching Seminar is our FREE introductory nutrition coaching seminar, and we encourage all our students to take it at least once. 

If you are training with us, you have made the commitment to get healthier by getting your body moving well, getting stronger, and building cardiovascular endurance.

But the secret to FAT LOSS, to getting that lean, toned body is always going to be good eating habits.

Do you have these questions when it comes to all the conflicting info out there?

  • How much do I need to eat?
  • Carbs? Protein? Fat? How much is enough? Too much? Too little?
  • How do I find time to make it fit into my busy life?
  • How do I get my kids to eat healthy? Can they eat this way too?
  • Everything in moderation, right?
  • Will you do my cooking for me? (umm....sorry)
  • And much more.

While we can't answer every question, we will take a solid hour, go through our Jumpstart Nutrition Manual (you'll get your very own .pdf copy after the seminar), and take time to answer your questions.

The Jumpstart Nutrition Coaching Seminar is hosted by Coach Nancy Carlson, Pn2, who is truly a master at helping busy people fit healthy eating into their crazy busy lives.

IMPORTANT: We only have space for 20 students, and you must pre-register for this FREE coaching opportunity. 

Don't delay, we want to see you on our first ever nutrition coaching seminar!

Jumpstart Nutrition Coaching on May 10th!

I want to make eating unhealthy HARDER than eating healthy. Wouldn’t it be nice if you had to struggle to eat foods that were not good choices? Wouldn’t it be helpful if you had access to all the goodness of nutrition without sifting through all the other?

Jumpstart Nutrition Coaching is your one stop for the answers to these questions. While we can't solve every issue in an hour, we can get a good jumpstart on them. This is where your nutrition coaching begins.

Jumpstart Nutrition Coaching – Getting Yourself Going on Your Goals

I love cookbooks. I love to make people happy with cooking. I love to eat food. Food makes me happy. 

I also get agitated because cooking takes a long time. I forget to plan and prepare so I end up stressed and rushed. ​I often serve the same thing over and over. Am I truly making anyone happy for a lifetime with my food skills? Do I know what foods should be on my plate? How much do I need to eat? Can my kids eat the same thing I do? What foods will make me healthiest? What foods can harm my body? 

Jumpstart Nutrition Coaching is your one stop for the answers to these questions. While we can't solve every issue in an hour, we can get a good jumpstart on them.

Keep It Simple

Most of you that know me know that I hate cooking. Because I hate cooking I am not patient, which means when I cook it doesn’t always come out as planned, because I tend to miss important steps. Anyone else like that? For years I have tried to overcome this hatred, but here I am still not enjoying it.

Here is what I do- I am totally one of those people who CAN eat the same thing over and over, BUT eventually it will get old. Each week I make a meal plan. On that plan, I include ONE brand new (easy) recipe. If I like it then it gets added to an index card and I file it in my recipe box, if I don’t care for it then it gets trashed. The rest of my meals are pulled from the front of the recipe box then I make my grocery list. I ALWAYS cook the new recipe on a Wednesday or a weekend when I have more time to pay attention.

Once the week is over and I am ready to make my new meal plan I file the week’s recipe cards in the BACK of the box (with or without new recipe if I liked it) so that I am keeping it fresh, with what I know I like and what I know I can cook. And I am gradually growing my recipe bank.

What is your system? Is there a system or are you constantly on Google trying to find next week's meal plan? Don’t reinvent the wheel each week- keep it simple!

Coffee Comparison – UMP vs. Sweeteners

With this recent Friday where we gave out some free samples of our new “Churro” flavor of SFH, I talked to a few different people about using UMP or SFH in their coffee. This helps in a couple of different ways:

  1. helps you increase your daily protein amount
  2. helps cut down on the cream and tons of sugar you add to your coffee, either as sugar itself or as flavor shots or swirls

When I mix UMP with my coffee its very simple - I get black iced coffee from Dunkins, pour it into a blender bottle, add a scoop of ump and shake. Its that easy. It even works if you dump the coffee in, ice and all. Below are some comparisons. For the sake of comparison, all coffees will be sized “medium” with flavor swirls from Dunkins.

UMP

Dunkins

Iced Coffee & Vanilla UMP
Calories: 125
Fat: 3 grams
Sugar: 1 gram
Protein 21 grams

Iced Coffee & Chocolate UMP
Calories: 125
Fat: 3.5 grams
Sugar: 0 grams
Protein: 21 grams

Iced Coffee & Rocky Road UMP
Calories: 125
Fat: 3 grams
Sugar: 0 grams
Protein: 21 grams

French Vanilla Swirl Iced Coffee
Calories: 260
Fat: 9 grams
Sugar: 36 grams
Protein: 4 grams

Mocha Swirl Iced Coffee
Calories: 260
Fat: 9 grams
Sugar: 36 grams
Protein: 3 grams

Rocky Road Swirl Iced Coffee
Calories: 260
Fat: 9 grams
Sugar: 36 grams
Protein: 3 grams

As you can see, not only can using UMP instead of sweeteners and flavor swirls make a huge difference in your sugar intake on a daily basis, it also can heavily affect your protein intake and how many calories you are getting with your coffee. That stuff adds up, especially if you are someone who drinks more than one coffee a week. UMP and coffee even tastes pretty good too. My favorite is the Cookies and Cream UMP with coffee - tastes wicked good. Give it a try!

Did you ever feel like you have a good guy on one shoulder and a bad guy speaking in your ear on the other side? I know it leaves me feeling stressed out. Who do I listen too? How do I make the bad guy go away or at least be quieter? How do I make the good guy easier to listen to? 

That is how I often feel. I'm with you. Its hard to discern through each day what is the best plan. Its hard not to give into that negative talk and therefore the negative behavior. ​Sometimes its just hard to be good all the time.

We'll work together to find a way to tune down the bad and increase all the good stuff. Things like: increased sense of well-being, an abundance of energy, weight loss, a sense of control, and the most important change of all… increased self-confidence.

Jumpstart Nutrition Coaching – Don’t Miss It!

Nutrition and Physical exercise go hand in hand in regards to health. We all know if we sit on the couch, after a few short weeks, we’ve gained weight, we move slower and maybe even ache a bit more.

The same is true with nutrition. A couple of weeks of ignoring any semblance of healthy eating and you’ve gained weight, you move slower, and maybe even ache a bit more.

The Grateful Plate Jumpstart Nutrition Coaching Workshop will get you started in the right direction. At this seminar you will recieve a Jumpstart manual full of information on what to eat, how much to eat, meal planning, grocery shopping, measuring yourself and your food, and much much more.

The Grateful Plate website already contains great recipes and a blog to get your journey started. Don't settle for feeling like a coach potato.
