Meal Prepping

Hi Everyone and Happy July! Yesterday was meal prep Sunday for my husband and I. We recently purchased this on amazon: https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B0742M47V5/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 and are excited to keep the momentum going. These reusable containers are BPA free, dishwasher and micro safe. I personally do not put plastic in the microwave, but this means you could. Anyhow yesterday…

Grilling

As the summer is in full swing, an easy way to stay with protocol is grilling. I LOVE to grill everything and everything on my grill (okay maybe not IP packets). Some of the things I like to grill: Roasted Broccoli Cilantro lime chicken Beef tenderloin/filet Zucchini medley Cedar plank salmon All of these are…

Accountability

Hi, all-Coach Laura here. I just wanted to speak briefly to accountability. I have been in maintenance for almost 2 years and I know that at times I can slip into bad habits, but know that I have to get right back on. The last two months I have been weighing myself at the beginning…

Using a Spring Nutrient Powerhouse

Hi, this is my first blogpost so I would love to introduce myself first. I am Sakshi, mom of twins, who is taking a second go at Ideal Protien. In my first round, this diet transformed not only mine but also my family’s health and eating habits. Now, I am back to Renee for making…

Valentine’s Day

Hello, lovelies; Coach Laura here. I wanted to send a quick blog post with a few tips on what to do on the holiday of love since much of it is tied to food. I know for myself personally, going out to restaurants can be a difficult feat to do and my husband and I…

My village

I am over a “certain age”. Often the medical world just lays it out as the cause, and that’s that. But I have some really good days… and some really tough ones… so somewhere in there is the possibility for more good then bad days. I bring this up to help understand why coaching in…

Feeling Discouraged? Wondering Why the Scale is Stuck?

Week after week clients complain about not losing enough weight. They swear up and down they are not “cheating”. We work diligently to try and find the culprit, which is not always evident on first glance. We have to act like detectives and ask question after question to get to the bottom of it. You would…
