Struggling to Reach & Maintain a Healthy Weight?
You're not alone. Stress can cause your cortisol levels to become imbalanced which can make it hard to lose weight. A simple saliva test is all you need to assess your stress response and start on your path to reaching a healthy weight.
For many people, changing their diet and exercising are not enough to help them lose weight. That's because stress and several other factors negatively impact your ability to lose weight and keep it off long term:
Stress Diet Sleep Exercise Hormones Inflammation Gut Health Toxins
Genes Medications Certain Medical Conditions When, Where, Why & How You Eat
When it comes to reaching a healthy weight, there's no such thing as a one - size - fits - all approach.
Your body is made up of multiple systems which interact with one another continually and uniquely. Your path to reaching and maintaining a healthy weight begins with a look at the interplay of these systems to determine which areas are out of balance. Once those areas are identified, you can chart your unique road map to reaching a healthy weight and improving your overall health. Vibrant health is not about being thin - it's about bringing your body's systems back into balance so that you can achieve a weight that's truly healthy for you.
When your hormone levels are balanced, your digestive system functions properly, your sleep is refreshing, your meals consist primarily of whole foods, you're physically active, you're more stress resilient, and your body's toxic burden is low, your ability to lose excess weight improves dramatically. Reaching a healthy weight is all about team work.
Research shows that individuals who lost weight and kept it off are those who made lifestyle changes that became habits. Support and accountability are key to developing healthy habits that will last a lifetime. Dr. Sarah Williams and health coach, Elisabeth Senkler, will work with you to create a realistic weight loss plan that embraces your health goals and fits into your schedule. The ongoing support that health coaching provides will keep you on track to reaching your healthy weight. Interested in taking the next step to becoming a healthier, more vibrant you?
