3 Reasons Health Coaching Works for Rapid Weight Loss
Did you know the weight loss industry is worth over $30 billion dollars? That’s a lot of money! So, if the U.S. diet industry is so wealthy, why do we have an obesity epidemic with over 38% of adults who are obese?
Boston Medical Center indicates that over 45 million Americans diet each year in their pursuit to a slimmer, fitter body. People are desperately flocking to fad diets and programs, yet few are actually reaching their goals and keeping their weight off. What if Inhealth health coaching was the answer to your weight loss challenges?
Here are 3 reasons health coaching works for weight loss and fad diets don’t.
1. Weight loss is biologically individual – simply put, a diet that works for your best friend may not work for you. People tend to follow what they see on their friend’s social media page or through other day to day interactions. “Look! I lost 20 lbs with this new 5-day diet I found. You should try it!” Of course we want to lose 20 lbs in 5 days like our friend did. She looks great! Unfortunately, it’s not that simple. There are so many factors involved in losing weight, like your lifestyle, your ethnicity, your biochemistry, and the list goes on.
Fad diets are one-size-fits-all programs that are built for the masses. Inhealth programs are not! Our health coaches create customized plans that fit your individual goals and needs, not someone else’s. Our goal is to create a plan that gets you to your goal and keeps you there.
2. Diets don’t create sustainable change – change requires accountability. When’s the last time you saw someone lose weight and actually completely change their lifestyle so they could keep it off? From our experience it’s few and far between. People lose weight through some diet they tried, they get tons of compliments on their success, then you see them a few months later and they look exactly like they did before. It’s a vicious cycle. We tend to fall back into old habits if we aren’t held accountable and actually taught how to change our daily lifestyle.
Inhealth coaches will meet with you on a weekly basis through a face-to-face video conference on our mobile app. It’s like doing a facetime call once a week with your own personal nutritionist or dietitian, but it’s through a HIPAA compliant medical technology system called telemedicine. Fancy, right? Our health coaches will completely transform the way you approach dieting, food, exercise, and more. They will get to those deep-rooted beliefs, patterns, and behaviors that got you to where you are in the first place and help you change them… fast!
3. Diets aren’t fun!– restrictive diets require “willpower” and the ability to stick to the rules. But the problem with this tough-it-out approach is that it’s no fun! There’s no joy involved in becoming a healthier version of you.
