Consistency and Success

As we all know, a lot of people start down a path to become fit and healthy but then stop…why? There are a lot of answers to this question. It might be that someone is overwhelmed or intimidated once they get into the gym. Perhaps it’s that someone wants fast results and quits when they aren’t seeing progress in a short period of time.

Human genome is extremely complex and so unique that each persons blue print on dieting along with psychological perception of stress, emotions and food can NOT be summed up in a meal plan or a diet.

Learning to distinguish the need to eat to nourish your body vs. the need to comfort, reward, and provide therapy for your body will allow you to live and experience the world in a whole new dimension.
