Why lose weight?

People who are overweight are at much greater risk of developing type 2 diabetes, according to the Obesity Society, the leading scientific society dedicated to the study of obesity. Lifestyle changes and even small amounts of weight loss can prevent or delay the development of type 2 diabetes among high-risk adults.

Common Sense Weight-Loss Program

For the first time, PhyZZically Fit is offering a 12-week Common Sense Weight-Loss Program for $120 (works out to $10 a week). You start when you want to and finish 12 weeks later. Losing weight is usually the hardest part of reaching your fitness goal. Have you reached a plateau? Have you tried and tried to lose that extra 10, 20 lbs, or more, but just can’t do it? There are dozens of programs and products out there that offer methods and “secrets” to losing weight. Guess what? There are no secrets. Losing weight is HARD WORK. It takes time, commitment, determination – and the right information! With the best weight-loss methods, you lose slowly and then MAINTAIN that weight loss for life. PhyZZically Fit will provide you with the tools, information, and support you need to achieve your goal.

As part of a regular workout regimen, PhyZZically Fit provides healthy eating guidelines, periodic reviews of daily diets, and regular weigh-ins along with fitness programs. So, what is different about this weight-loss program vs. what PhyZZically Fit already offers on a regular basis?

With Common Sense, clients will:

  • Complete a comprehensive survey of eating habits to identify problem areas
  • Receive a recommendation for daily caloric intake
  • Receive specific customized weight-loss strategies
  • Meet for a one-on-one half hour consultation to kick off the process
  • Receive daily food tracking logs that can be filled out online or hardcopy
  • Receive regular feedback on food tracking logs (generally handled through email)
  • Weigh in weekly
  • Undergo a 10-minute evaluation every two weeks to discuss progress (handled by phone)

Common Sense is NOT a diet prescription program. If you have specific health issues such as diabetes, high cholesterol, or heart disease, you must work with your doctor first to understand your dietary needs and restrictions. If you have these types of health issues, you must get the “OK” from your doctor to participate in a weight-loss program. I am neither a doctor nor a registered dietician. However, I am qualified to use the proper tools and information to guide you through the process. All data is based on my certification training, nutritional training sessions, and information from a range of practical, no-nonsense weight-loss experts who I find make the most sense. I have come to rely on:

  • Alywyn Cosgrove, Sports Scientist and renowned fitness trainer
  • Rachel Cosgrove, BS, CSCS (Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist)
  • Nancy Clark, MS, RD, and sports nutritionist
  • Dr. Mehmet Oz
  • Paul Chek, Holistic Heath Practitioner
  • Jillian Michaels and Bob Harper from The Biggest Loser
  • The American Heart Association
  • The National Institute for Health
  • AFAA (Aerobics and Fitness Association of America)

There are no guarantees with a weight loss program, even though many places offer them. PhyZZically Fit will give you the tools, information, and structure, but the work and responsibility is on YOU.
