CARE is a “behavioral weight loss program” meaning it teaches you how to make and sustain the lifestyle decisions that are right for you, rather than just mimic an “eat this, not that” diet list. As importantly, CARE teaches you how to make these decisions at the end of a long, stressful day when you’d rather say “I’ll try again tomorrow”. CARE will provide you clear guidance on where to start, structure and focus on how to progress, and mentoring along the way.
“I have tried so many different approaches to staying healthy and have never encountered something so useful as CARE. I thought I knew everything there was to know about health. I’m 57 and I’ve always been a nutritional junkie. When I finished my time with CARE, I felt like I had finished a college course packed with so much exciting new information…” Linda, Minneapolis, MN
CARE helps you discover what it takes to align what you want to do with what you actually do.
CARE is comprehensive nutrition and lifestyle mentoring that integrates:
Whole Foods-Based Nutrition
You will learn how to use food as ‘culinary medicine’ and your confidence will soar around food and food prep. Importantly, you will pick the rate you transition your kitchen; you will not be asked to throw away or eliminate any food. Consistent, incremental changes are best for long-term results. No supplements or meal replacements are used or sold.
Culinary Skills Training
You will learn simple prep and organization techniques that will make weekly meal planning realistic, allowing you to prepare more meals at home and be prepared to make better choices when away from home. This includes using favorite foods and recipes. Together we will balance what you are currently doing, rather than making you feel like you have to start all over.
Holistic Fitness and Self-CARE
The focus of a therapeutic lifestyle is finding ways to move more during the day rather than forcing a demanding gym routine into your already too demanding schedule. In CARE, you will explore new ways of defining a fitness routine that really fits your lifestyle. The best activity for you is simply the one that you will do consistently.
The approach you will practice in CARE is to understand how to prioritize recovery from stress rather than unrealistically trying to eliminate stress. CARE also focuses on moderating intake of caffeine and alcohol, increasing the quality of sleep, and exploring the role of social and spiritual connection to health and quality of life.
Skills Development and Habit Formation Training
CARE emphasizes the need for consistent, daily practice of new desired changes in order to make them new healthy habits. CARE will also mentor you through finding the internal motivation needed to want to practice your new changes each day, breaking the need to rely on willpower and white-knuckle restriction.
