|8 Week Slim Down|
Hello, and thank you for inquiring about our 8 Week Slim Down !
This program/challenge is designed to produce individualized results in an 8 week time period. There are 3 parts to the 8 Week Slim Down : the initial consultation, the metabolic test, and the diet (ordering your Clean Eats Delivery meals). Let's break it down.
The Initial Consultation The consultation part of this program consists of an initial meeting between a certified wellness coach and the client (depending on availability of the client this consultation can be done over the phone if it is more convenient). During this consultation we will discuss your personal bio (age, weight, height, etc.), day to day routines, eating habits, exercise frequency, personal goals, dietary needs, any injuries or medical conditions we should know about, reasons you may have trouble adhering to the program and possible solutions to help you stay on track!
The Metabolic Test The Metabolic Test portion of this program provides us with “real numbers” that will help us determine your exact caloric needs along with what specific foods on our Clean Eats Delivery menu that will help you meet those caloric needs. The Metabolic Test is completed by using an indirect calorimeter, this machine allows us to determine your exact RMR/REE (resting metabolic rate/resting energy expenditure) using the amount of oxygen your body consumes, which in turn let’s us know the exact amount of calories your body uses to perform its normal day to day activities (including any exercise you normally perform).
The Diet “The Diet” part of this program is simple, easy, and delicious! Based off the “real numbers” we determine from your Metabolic Test, we provide you with meals to accommodate those “real numbers” and help you meet your caloric goals (i.e. calorie deficits to promote weight loss or calorie increases to promote weight/muscle gain) The great part about our menu is it is completely dairy free, gluten free, Non GMO, MSG free, and doesn’t contain added sugars or preservatives. Along with our meals being healthy and good for you our meals are completely customizable! What does that mean? Well, if you have any food allergies or you’re just not keen on certain foods let us know and we can substitute and switch things out for you. (i.e. if you are on a no grain diet, meals that contain quinoa or brown rice could be substituted for double vegetables asparagus, kale, spinach, broccoli, sweet potato, etc.)
Along with all of these helpful tools and techniques to help you reach your goals, we will also email you a “welcome package” that will contain a shopping guide to help you identify the best and healthiest options at the grocery store, a diet tracker that allows you to write down what you’ve consumed for the day/week to help you stay on track with your daily caloric needs, and finally a “ Helpful tips” guide that will expand your knowledge and understanding of why certain things/foods are bad or good for your body as well as tips on how to start your day off right while keeping your body in the best state possible throughout the day!
