- To ask a lot of questions regarding the clients' preferences and schedules- no point in developing a meal plan that a client is not going to follow.
- To check-in with them regularly and encourage them to communicate.
- To be flexible - it's hard for people to make changes and sometimes, you have to change the plan according to the upcoming circumstances.
Trying to figure out the adequate number of calories as well as macronutrients to develop an individualized program is time-consuming. Evolution Nutrition has saved me a lot of hours and made me more efficient.
By having open lines of communication and allowing them to express likes, dislikes, and challenges. In that way, I can address their concerns and help them move forward. It's also good to provide positive reinforcement to keep clients engaged and encouraged.
I believe that having more of a balanced macronutrient breakdown is the way to go, choosing organic and only eating processed foods sparingly.
Introducing intermittent fasting and decreasing/eliminating simple carbs.
Veggies and fruits, good quality protein with most of their meals, and a good fat (avocados, coconut oil or MCT, butters, hemp or chia seeds).
If I'm home, I'm having organic and grass-fed or wild-caught foods. I do 16/8 intermittent fasting 4 days a week, have protein smoothies or eggs, a big salad with chicken or fish, quinoa or another good carb with steak, and a snack like almond butter. On the weekends, my diet is more relaxed.
I always encourage them to incorporate strength training, a lot of compound movements, and to train in circuits to keep their heart rate up and accelerate their metabolism.
