The Paleo Challenge will help optimize your health, minimize your risk of chronic disease, and lose weight. This option will include 6 weeks of a strict paleo diet, no weighing or measuring, but keeping track of your diet through a pointing system. We will have 3 meetings throughout the challenge, including pitch ins to help you get creative in the kitchen! It’s $69 to participate.

What you get with the Paleo Challenge

  • Nutrition plan that emphasizes consumption of meat, vegetables, nuts, seeds fruit – no grains, dairy, legumes, processed/preserved foods and sugar.
  • Bi-weekly check-ins and group meeting with pitch in
  • Pointing system to help you stay on track
  • Private Facebook group for sharing recipes, tips, and advice
  • 24 hour contact with Coach Heather via e-mail

The Flexible Dieting option will track your macronutrients (fats, carbs, and proteins.). Each participant will have their own individualized macros according to their, weight, height, age, and goals. This option requires weighing and measuring as well as weekly check ins with coach Heather throughout the 6 weeks. Your macros will change from week to week according to your goals and progress. Flexible dieting will still promote a paleo diet, but allows a bit more freedom because you don’t have to deprive yourself from any of your favorite foods or shut yourself off from the social aspect of food.

*Flexible dieting makes room for 3 bite size cheesecakes or 1 scoop of ice cream, but don’t confuse this program with being easy. Counting Macros can be very tedious without previous experience using a scale, nor never had paid attention to macros, but it’s the only way describe what moderation actually means. Precision is key with flexible dieting in which you cannot make estimated guesses – you cannot just plop meat and veggies down like you could with paleo, you have to weigh and measure everything!

What you get with Flexible Dieting:

  • Weekly check-ins one-on-one for personalized guidance and added accountability for $99.
  • Personalized nutrition plan that emphasizes precisely how many carbs, proteins, and fats you are consuming to benefit weight loss and/or performance.
  • Initial information guide on how to count macros- the first week is a learning experience
  • Private Facebook Group for sharing recipes, tips, and advice
  • 24 hour contact with Coach Heather via e-mail

What are Macronutrients(Macros)? Macros are the number of grams of protein, carbohydrates, and fats you consume on a particular day. Macros can be counted as another way to achieve your fitness and nutrition goals. Counting Macros can mean the difference between dropping those last few pounds of stubborn fat or standing still. You could also be consuming too much or too little of one macronutrient. It’s common for people to underestimate their carb and protein intake and overestimate their fat consumption. Keeping track of your macronutrients can also be beneficial for muscle/strength gains and having more energy throughout the day.
