Initial coaching session
Meet Miranda. A self-confessed sugar addict, she has tried dieting without success. She has a family history of diabetes and one provider has suggested a keto diet might be beneficial for her family. Although Miranda tried the Whole30 food plan in the past, she experienced anxiety over maintaining the diet. Despite some physical limitations, Miranda wants to find an exercise plan that will work for her. She is looking forward to learning some stress management skills that will help her to better deal with the daily demands of life.
Our first coaching session is on eliminating foods that are not primal approved. By eliminating grains, legumes, sugars, and industrial oils from your diet you are transitioning from a sugar burner to a fat burner. The initial step is often the hardest step because it involves getting rid of foods that you are generally accustomed to eating and replacing them with foods that you may have avoided in the past.
Miranda’s assignment is to purge any primal foods from the pantry, refrigerator, and freezer and to replace them with foods from the primal approved list.
