Personalized Plans Based on You –– and Your Lifestyle

Beyond the Box Nutrition is refreshingly relatable, flexible, and different from anything you may have tried in the past. How? We believe that a healthy relationship with food inspires healthy relationships across all areas of your life.

Quite simply, we want you to learn how to stop dieting, start embracing a sustainable way of eating, and appreciate the results. After all, most people who diet see some initial weight loss, get excited about that, then stop when they hit a plateau, which typically leads to frustration and overwhelm.

But our work with hundreds of clients has proved –– again and again and again –– that if you can enjoy the foods you like and make progress towards your goals, that’s the kind of plan everyone can live with.

Overall, we want to make sure that your nutrition fits your lifestyle without you needing a lifestyle change. We recommend a personalized plan based on your current lifestyle, your goals, and the foods that you like to eat. This helps you reach your individual health and nutrition goals.

Food: Freedom, Flexibility, and Fun

All of our coaches believe that no one should have to eat bland foods or only certain foods, all day, every day. Our plans do require dedication and commitment, but also provide a relationship with food that offers freedom, flexibility, and fun.

We offer you space for some alcohol, some sweets, even
a meal at your favorite restaurant as part of your personalized
nutrition plan with specific goals.

We encourage or teach our clients to:

  • Decide which foods can make up their daily food intake with a coach’s guidance
  • Manage their nutrition around social events or business meetings to encompass flexibility and avoid complete food restriction
  • Feel confident and prepared when facing challenging situations where they may have gone “off track” in the past

Success Pillars for our Health Coach for Weight Loss Clients

There are four success pillars that also help you achieve transformational results that you can maintain. These encompass:

Creating an Aware Mindset

  • Awareness and consciousness of your current beliefs, thoughts, and habits surrounding food and your body
  • Reframing and changing your narrative (self-talk)
  • Celebrating the small wins on the way to reaching your ultimate goal
  • Knowing that plateaus and perceived “failures” are part of the process to achieving lasting weight loss

Having a Well-Balanced Life

  • Banish the “All or Nothing” mindset and find comfort in the grey area
  • Maintain a lifestyle balance, filled with play, rest, exercise, work, self, family, friends, and more
  • Realize that self-care is essential because it includes stress management, self-compassion, self-trust, self-confidence, and ultimately, self-efficacy

Enjoying Your Meals and Food

  • Simple, healthy, and convenient meals are not only possible, but can also be very tasty
  • You can find healthy food everywhere, when you know where to look
  • Find room along the way for periodic treats within long-term sustainability

regularly exercising

  • Find some form of exercise that you enjoy; it’s even better with a long-term commitment
  • Prioritize daily movement; too much or too little exercise can impede your progress
  • Exercise for your health, but not to punish yourself for eating too much or only to burn calories
