The biggest tip I can offer to anyone is educate yourself. Regardless of using a trainer, nutritionist or coach, you need to have an understanding as to why they are giving you the advice they are providing you. I encourage my clients to ask questions – and I would encourage you to do the same too.
Educating yourself is about having power and eventually being capable to participate fulling in your decisions and feeling confident in them.
There are a lot of topics that I feel passionately about and below are some that I’ve written about on this site. The style of writing is different than the rest of my blog posts and references can be found at the bottom of each post.
Again, these posts are for educational purposes and to give you a starting point as you educate yourself on your journey.
