Health Coaching

With Tina de Lemps

Eileen from Westbury asks:

What exactly is Health Coaching? I’ve heard a lot about it, but I’m not sure what it is. How is it different from meeting with a nutritionist?

Health Coaching is a unique, exciting innovation in health, fitness and nutrition. A certified Health Coach has studied major dietary theories and workout regimes. I can help you to discover which approach works best for you at this point in your life. While most nutritionists focus mainly on calories, carbs, fats, proteins, restrictions and lists of good and bad foods, a Health Coach works with clients to create a balanced, healthy lifestyle in a way that is flexible, fun and free of denial and over-discipline.

Curt from Manhattan asks:

I know that many corporations are offering Health Coaching and fitness services to their employees. As a business owner, what would be the benefits of my doing that?

Studies show that employee productivity and moral increase dramatically when these services are attended at the workplace. In addition, employee absenteeism decreases and health care costs can go down!

Randye from Forest Hills asks:

Should I go on a low fat, high carb diet, or is it better to eat mostly protein?

No one diet works for everyone. By evaluating your habits and lifestyle, as well as your food preferences, I can help you to discover the choices that best support you in leading a vital and balanced life. I will also help you to make gradual, lifelong changes that enable you to reach your current and future health goals.

Jim from Jamaica asks:

Can I lose weight without exercising as long as I’m “eating right?”

Not really. Exercising is an important part of being healthy. It not only helps you to burn more fat and calories, but it strengthens your heart, the most important muscle in the body. It’s just as important to find the right exercise regimen as it is to find the right way of eating for you!
