This group was unbelievable. They were highly motivated and extremely compliant and it's all because they had clear REALISTIC goals.
After receiving individual calorie and macronutrient goals by yours truly, (based off of Bodystat 1500 results) myself and Allison Jachowski, owner of Odin Crossfit and Personal Trainer, discussed meal planning, diary tracking, SMART goals, and recipe modification. We provided resources backed by science, held everybody to different forms of accountability, and best of all we celebrated success!
Initial recommendations were somewhat shocking and difficult for some but after they got the hang of it most realized they needed to change their macronutrient intake significantly to eat more of some of the macronutrients and less of others. They also learned how to pay attention to ratios and provide their bodies with the right percentage of fuel. Although this was a hard feat, they did it.
Here's a couple of testimonials I received at the end of the challenge:
This was very eye opening. I am blown away by the results but feel like the changes I made are sustainable. Thank you.
Amy... I don't think it's exaggerating to say this program changed my life. I will not go back to how I used to eat... and I know I'll be a healthier, happier person for it!
I love the perky buns and new thighs!!! Everyone seems to feel great too and can incorporate a new healthier lifestyle with REAL food 🥘 thank you Amy Mastro
Weight loss is difficult. It's not just about calories in verses calories out. It's about macronutrient ratios, micronutrient absorption, physical activity, and your psychological motivation and readiness for change. If you've tried to lose weight before and can't sustain it your mind and body may need a tune up. That's exactly what the professionals are there for. Your health should be your biggest priority, without it you won't be here as long as you'd like.
