Weight Loss

I am a Certified Health Coach, as well as having a Bachelors in the Science of Nursing. I am not a Nutritionist but have tried every diet known to man, and have become somewhat of an expert thru the school of "hard knocks"!!!  I focus on a low carb way of eating, but I also believe in the traditional methods of calories in vs calories out.  Everyone has to figure out the best appraoch for success when it comes to dieting, weight loss, and weight management.  Please feel free to contact me for further details about Online Support for your weight loss and weight maintenance needs! In good health~ paige ☺️



Regardless of what program you are following for weight loss or weight management, here are a few things I know for sure:
1) You HAVE to be ORGANIZED !!!! If you fail to plan you plan to fail !!!  EVERYTIME
2) Know what you are eating the next day before you go to bed at night!!!
3) Do as much prep work on your food ahead of time as possible, if you wait til your hungry you are more apt to make poor choices.
4) Understand how to calorie count and buy a food scale to aid in portion control.
5) When cooking, choose baked, broiled, steamed or grilled for preparation.
6) Don't forget to drink your water !
7) Mint gum can be your best friend and is the perfect appetite quencher!
8) Continue to be active, you don't have to kill yourself in the gym, but get a move on!
9) Increased Muscle Mass = Increased Metabolism
10) Make a grocery list of what you will need all week and only go to the store once, and don't go when you are hungry! Once home, chop and prep a HUGE salad that will last all week so its easy to grab when hunger strikes.  I make a gigantic bowl of 3 heads of Romaine, Baby Spinach leaves, Cilantro, Baby Carrots, Green Onions and Peppers.  This combo stays nice all week with out getting wet or limp.
11) Never leave home with out a little stash in your purse, i.e. a protein bar, apple and cheese stick, protein shake, baby carrots, etc.
12) Sugar is the Devil~stick to High Protein High Fiber meals for the longest satisfaction! Carbs cause cravings !!!!
13) Journal if that helps!
14) Have a weight loss buddy, and a work out buddy!
15) Go to support meetings if available.
16) Eat as close to the same thing every day while dieting, its proven you will eat less.
17) Eat 6 times a day~thats the best thing you can do for your body !!!  It will LOVE you for it !!!  Or if Intermittent Fasting fits your lifestyle better, and it is successful for then by all means take that route.
18) Clean your environment of toxic foods~ so long Oreo's !!!
19) Ask your family, co workers and loved ones for support~avoid food sabatogers~they will be lurking in every corner and will be intimidated by your success.
20) Make a list of things to do when you might be bored, so eating is not top on the list!  Catch up on old magazines, read a book, go for a walk, check Facebook, text a friend to say hi and catch up, call your mom, look for healthy recipes on line or cruise around http://foodfitnessbypaige.blogspot.com  ;)

   Feel free to contact me with any additional tips that you would like to share with others and I will be glad to pass it on !!!Also, if you have any Health topics you would like to see covered, please let me know !!!  Contact me at foodfitnessbypaige@gmail.com  :)

    1. If you work HARD for your money (and I know you do) you don’t like to see it wasted, right?

      There’s no shortage of ways to waste your money that I am sure you are already aware of but the ONE area most people don’t realize they are wasting their money is in the food they eat.

      That’s right.

      Are you 100% certain that your body is making the most of all the food and more importantly protein you consume each day?

      Wouldn’t you want to have confirmation on this?

      There are many indicators that your body will use to tell you if the foods you are eating is being wasted or not.

      You can read up more on this topic on the following page:

      ? Make sure you are ABSORBING the foods you eat, ok?

      Protein isn’t cheap whether it’s coming from food or shakes.

      But, did you know that every day you don’t consume a very specific type of enzyme, you are actually wasting money on the protein you’re buying from food and shakes?

      No protein means no growth PERIOD

      ? How to ABSORB all your protein and stop wasting money

      Even if you are doing everything right…

      Eating clean? CHECK!

      Eating organic? CHECK!

      5-6 meals a day? DOUBLE CHECK!

      Protein shakes, vitamins and supplement minerals? CHECK MATE!

      But one of the harsh realities I’ve learned from peak performance expert Wade Lightheart is this:

      Most of the protein individuals consume ends up in one of two places.

      One is your toilet bowl.

      And the second place is in a nice layer of sludge somewhere in your digestive tract.

      So in theory, it’s a nice idea to think that if you are following the “Golden Rules” that have been laid out for you, you are on the right track.

      BUT if you can’t properly utilize those foods, all that effort adds up to one GIANT-SIZED WASTE OF MONEY AND EFFORT.

      So what’s happening and why isn’t this being talked about so much?

      The industry is SLOWLY starting to realize this harsh truth but they are still WAY behind and struggling to catch up.

      Fact is, our bodies require ENZYMES to perform at their best.

      Enzymes are responsible for everything from “thinking to blinking” which also includes energy production, cell repair and recovery and even immune boosting advantages.

      The BAD NEWS is that our bodies only have a limited enzyme-producing capacity which naturally declines as we age (your enzyme potential can drop to only 30% by the time you reach the age of 40).

      And yes, our bodies CAN produce enzymes and yes there are enzymes in the foods you eat BUT they still don’t add up to the required amount you actually need.

      This is due to many contributing factors including HOW our foods are grown or produced these days, HOW they are transported and HOW we prepare those foods.

      And research demonstrates that ANY FOOD HEATED ABOVE 114 DEGREES FAHRENHEIT LOSES ALL OF ITS ENZYMES.

      In other words, all cooked food is deficient in digestive enzymes, leaving very little to break down your food.

      ? Yes I’d like to know more about restoring enzyme production

      PS. Before rushing out the door to go and get digestive enzymes from your local stores, remember this…

    1. That’s a great question, I’m a nurse myself but only worked 1st and 2nd shift when i worked at the hospital. Regardless of your work schedule, the same principles apply. You will just adjust your times to the hours you are awake, does that make sense? Start eating within an hour after getting up and every 2-3 hours after that, breaking up your calories evenly between meals. Or if you have a heavier meal, make up with a lighter snack. And i am a proponent of a higher protein lower carb lifestyle. Hope that helps 💜
