Body fat loss and maintenance

Loose weight through real nutrition and lifestyle changes to keep it off! At Coast Nutrition we take a habit & mindset changing approach and help you regain a normal relationship with food, so that you’ll lose body fat with permanent results.

Dieting makes you feel deprived from the foods you love the most, worry about social occasions, feel bad about yourself when not sticking to the plan, tired of constantly thinking of what the next meal should be or letting an app dictate your life. I get it if that is not how you want to live!

But what is then a better approach to achieving and maintaining your happy weight? When it comes to body fat loss there is more to consider than the foods you eat. Your physique, food choices, emotional & hormonal landscape (hello binging and stress eating!), medications/supplement use and your environment together determine your personal approach to body fat loss and weight maintenance. Because all these factors differ from person to person there is no “one size fits all” approach to weight loss and it is important to get a full picture of influences that affect your body weight and shape. Because knowing is not always doing, you may benefit from working with me to guide you and keep you accountable until your new habits have set in.

Book here or continue reading about what to expect from an initial consultation:

Before your first consultation (1 to 1½ hour) you’ll be asked to fill out an online intake form with your personal details and your medical history. This will be kept strictly confidential.

If found useful, a full diet analyses will show any shortfalls or excess in nutrients that influence the body’s ability to use body fat as fuel. This also gives me a good overview of the types of foods and drinks you are used to so that recommendations can be made that fit your life and therefor are sustainable without relapse.

Furthermore, we’ll discuss your relationship with food and your emotional and hormonal landscape (hello sugar cravings and overeating), as this largely affects our ability to lose body fat. If found beneficial you’ll receive practical recommendations for diet and lifestyle adjustments tailored to you to get back in touch with what your body and mind really need. This is often a barrier that is hard to overcome and requires a step-by-step approach to achieve. The guidance and accountability program are especially recommended if this seems to be your biggest issue.

I do not recommend to focus on the number on the scales, but rather notice changes in how you feel mentally and how your clothes fit. However, if found useful and always in agreement with you, we may analyze your body composition through bioelectrical impedance analyses (BIA). If you strongly feel the need to translate your goals into a number we can measure your waist circumference and frame size to determine your healthy and realistic weight loss goal.

What is next?

After your initial consultation and diet analyses you’ll receive a written summary with practical recommendations and I’ll follow up with you over the phone.

Need more support and coaching? During the accountability & guidance program the underlying habits and environmental factors that are keeping you from reaching your weight loss goal are addressed in a step-by-step manner. We will do this by not (solely) focusing on body measurements and following a strict meal plan or food restrictions, but by working on lasting habit changes to achieve long term positive well being outcomes. These will not only affect your body shape, but also how you feel in your day to day life.

To coach you through your diet and lifestyle changes we’ll meet fortnightly (30-45 minutes) with a “check-in” phone call (15 minutes) in between to keep you on track. This motivates to stick to your new habits and gives the opportunity to discuss unexpected barriers that you’ll need a strategy for to prevent relapse.
