Ten Reasons You Need a Health Coach

Health Coach (2)Isn’t it time to take a good hard look at your health?

As Americans, our health is steadily declining despite the amount of money we spend on health care, high-technology medicine, and educational efforts. Diabetes and obesity rates continue to explode among adults, teens and young children.

Unless we wake up and take responsibility for our own health and nutrition, this pattern is not only bound to continue, it’s guaranteed.

That’s why enlisting the help of a T School Health Coach can make the all the difference in the quality and consistency of your own health.  Why?  Because a health coach will listen to you and guide you in making choices in food, fitness and daily practices that can literally transform your world from the inside out.

integrative-coaching-3Here are the top 10 reasons you need a health coach now: 

1. Chances are you won’t follow through with your personal goals to lose weight or get healthy if you’re going it alone.
A staggering 80% of people who make resolutions at New Years (and beyond) end up breaking them. It’s human to stumble and lose your way, but instead of giving up, why not turn to a trained professional to help you keep those goals fresh and accountable day in and out?  A health coach will show you how to make those small daily changes that will build up to a lifetime of good health.

Over the years the extra few pounds have stayed on you, but you are not eating any differently. You know you need to change the way you’re living but you don’t know where to start. A health coach will help you identify the easiest changes to make today that will make the biggest(and lasting) impact on your health.

3. You have cravings that you don’t know how to handle so you end up eating.
And the more you give into those cravings the less control you feel you have over them and your ability to make good choices. A health coach will help you identify the cause of the cravings and make the changes necessary to help  you to beat your cravings or binge eating.
4. The people around you are overweight or unhealthy.
If your family and friends are at an unhealthy weight or don’t feel healthy, you might be hanging around people who are simply unaware of what good nutrition is about. You might also be one of those folks. A health coach can help you decipher the truth about what is healthy and what choices to make to improve your health one day at a time.

frustrated-woman 45. You want to lose weight fast, so you try diets that don’t work for you.
Strict diets just don’t work. First you severely restrict yourself, and even if you do lose some weight, the diet ends and you don’t know how to eat on a normal, daily basis. A health coach will teach you how to make healthy decisions one meal and one choice at a time.  It starts with food, but we all know health is about a whole lot more than that.


6. You don’t have enough time for yourself.
There are only so many hours in a day and you simply don’t feel you have any time to devote to yourself for self care, exercise, or cooking. A health coach will help empower you to find small ways to practice self care daily to improve your health from the where it begins:  inside of you.


frustrated-woman 57. You are stressed out with family and work responsibilities.
These days it’s hard not to feel overwhelmed by the stresses and responsibilities or work and family.  If you suffer from stress or anxiety, a health coach will teach you about the relationship between stress and chronic disease, how to reset your priorities, and how to shirt your thinking to make mindful choices to reduce and manage stress.


8. Your family needs to eat better but you aren’t sure how to accomplish that with what you know or the time you have.
There are cookbooks, diet books, commercials, restaurants, and products labeled “healthy” on the market, and you need to improve your and your family’s diet.  Your T School Coach is here to guide you step by step to help you build a powerful nutritional template that will not only work for you, but your entire family.


frustrated-woman 79. You are confused about whether meat, protein, carbs, dairy, produce, or GMO foods are healthy.
With all the information on what we should and should not be eating, how can you tell what is healthy for you?  T School focuses on a CLEAN EATING template which your health coach will further help tailor to your personal lifestyle, health needs and stated goals.


10. Nothing has worked before so you continue to gain weight or have chronic health issues.
If you suffer from all or nothing thinking, chances are you have given up because it seems like nothing you’ve tried before has worked. If you have gained weight, or if you are suffering from chronic health issues that are blood sugar-related, high cholesterol, blood pressure, inflammation or arthritis, or other health issues, you may be able to improve your health quickly through food and nutrition. Your T School coach can help you wade through the mountains of nutrition research to figure out what works for you and your health to get you the results you so badly want.
