Yes, Heather (if I may call you Heather).
It’s about education. The minute a client walks through my door, I begin to educate. Not that you are not, or did not, with these clients. But you must do more. In the sense that when someone asks me “how long does it take to lose 30 pounds?” My repsonse, “I don’t know.” I have no idea how committed this person is to restructuring their life to achieve weight loss.
Do they know that stress (and cortisol) has as much to do with weight loss as does exercise and nutrition?
Do they know that nutrition, what they consume if they are not stressed out, is 80% of the equation, with the rest being a combo of exercise and sleep?
Have you ever tried motivational interviewing to try to have this people adhere to what you are teaching them? I took a course and it’s fascinatingly helpful.
Keep on changing people’s lives. You have a passion. Pass it on.
