WEIGHT LOSS HEALTH COACHING
SCIENCE-BASED WEIGHT LOSS PROGRAMMING AND LIFE COACHING
Much of what you think you know about diet, exercise, weight loss, and fulfilling life is may be wrong.
This explains why half of Americans are overweight or obese, with an epidemic of heart disease, diabetes, and many deals with depression and anxiety.
Our mission at ProTimeFit is to help you cut through the falsehoods, half-truths, and antiquated notions that have been shown to be largely ineffective by recent research.
The ProTimeFit method is a compilation of the latest science on mental health, motivation, weight loss, behavioral change, functional fitness, and nutrition.
Our philosophy is, the simpler something is, the easier it is to learn and to adapt to a lifestyle.
We present the science of lifestyle change in a way that attempts to simplify the complex, making it incredibly effective.
We question everything and so should you. With the findings from the latest research, we give you information that will help you to live the healthiest, happiest most productive life possible.
Education is the key to success in just about every discipline and nothing is more important than your health.
Below are questions and statements that are at the core of what we do at Protimefit and have inspired us to act to educated and inform.
Have you ever wondered why you can't stay on a diet for very long?
Do you ask yourself why you crave foods loaded with sugar, fat, and salt?
Do you know that food scientists have created foods that are practically addictive with a concept called, ' bliss point'?
You may know that calorie reduction is the key to weight loss but you would be on only half correct.
Processed foods are actually worse than you may think, and an understanding of what makes them dangerous is the key to eliminating them from your lifestyle.
Sugar can potentially be toxic to your body in large amounts and high fructose corn syrup should never be consumed.
Sugar in excess has a link to cancer, inflammation, diabetes, liver disease, obesity, heart disease, and is the second most added ingredient to processed foods after salt.
Did you know that fasting or intermittent fasting shuts down hunger?
Do you know that fasting not only helps in burning fat but helps your cells to cleanse and renew?
Do you know that snacking is a made-up concept that may actually be harmful?
Do you know that healthy fats are not the enemy to good health? Fats in fact are one of the most important food ingredients for your body, especially for your brain function.
Have you ever wondered why breakfast cereal is a common staple in the western diet?
Did you know that in some nations, breakfast cereal ads are prohibited on T.V., certain times of the day?
Your grandparents probably didn't eat cereal and milk for breakfast and were generally less likely to be overweight although they ate foods such as grits, oatmeal, eggs, sausage, and bacon.
Did you know that exercise is not the key to weight loss and keeping it off?
Exercising outside is probably better for your mental health than exercising in a gym.
You should not exercise in a public gym during the COVID-19 pandemic, no matter what precautions are in place.
Have you noticed that exercise can actually increase your appetite?
Did you know that many types of supplements do not work as well as whole foods?
Did you know that stress may be contributing to your weight gain?
Did you know that no supplement actually helps you to lose weight safely?
Do you know that overweight and obesity are mental health issues, not just physical issues?
Have you noticed the rates of obesity, heart disease, and diabetes have increased significantly in the last 30 years?
These thoughts and questions should be pondered alongside the evidence presented by science.
As you can see, our approach is not a repackaging of the same old concepts but to question everything.
We are not going to attempt to re-create the wheel but we will present you with the facts as we know them and adjust our approaches as the science evolves, giving more clarity.
In addition to health coaching, Protimefit offers Life Coaching which is designed to facilitate better decision-making, goal setting, and inspiring greater heights of success.

You may be wondering, what exactly is health coaching and how can it help you.
Health coaching is not a new concept, in fact, it has been around in some form for dozens of years and has gained in popularity in the last few decades driven by the need to assist those suffering from various health conditions, the desire of the public to take control of their health and wellbeing, and insurance companies working to keep people well.
Whether in the form of receiving advice from professionals such as physicians, counselors, nurses, nurse practitioners, dieticians, nutritionists, and other health professionals the demand for health coaching will continue to rise. As you read this page, the reasons will become abundantly clear that we have a horrible health crisis on our hands.
The facts are clear that lifestyle-related diseases have become a worldwide epidemic. This phenomenon is driven by many factors including lack of regular exercise, stress, more sedentary work, the consumption of processed foods, and other poor eating habits.
Lifestyle diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, and obesity are driven by our lifestyle choices.
In the last twenty-five years, there has been a remarkable increase in the rates of obesity and overweight with half of the adults in the United States now overweight or obese.
From 1999-2000 through 2017-2018 the prevalence of obesity increased from 30.5% to 42.4%, and the prevalence of severe obesity increased from 4.7% to 9.2%.
Globally, an estimated 26% of the world's population(972 million people) has hypertension and the prevalence is expected to increase to 29% by 2025, driven largely by increases in economically developing nations.
As a primary contributor to heart disease and stroke, the first and third leading causes of death worldwide, respectively, high blood pressure was the top modifiable risk factor for disability life-years lost worldwide in 2013.
On average someone dies of cardiovascular disease(CVD)every 37 seconds in the U.S. There are 2,353 deaths from CVD each day, based on 2017 data.
On average, someone in the U.S. has a stroke every 40 seconds. There are about 795,000 new or recurring stokes each year.
Diabetes continues to rise and is linked to heart disease along with obesity. The statistics are startling.
Over 34 million Americans --- just over 1 in 10---have diabetes.
More than 88 million Americans---approximately 1 in 3 have prediabetes.
Diabetes is increasing at an alarming rate among young people under the age of 20 years old as well.
The key to preventing diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and obesity is education.
The information presented here is the consequences of unhealthy lifestyles. The greatest tragedy is that these diseases are mostly preventable.
In summary, a healthy lifestyle is one of the most important factors in staying healthy and avoiding diseases.
My simple formula for more abundant life is to eat well, exercise daily, stay connected, reduce stress levels, get adequate sleep, and surround yourself with positive people who love and encourage you.
Perhaps you know much of this but have not implemented a plan. Maybe you would love to lose weight, reduce your stress levels, but really don't know where to start. You may have tried many plans that promise change but left you feeling frustrated.
I understand your pain.
The objective of Protimefit is to partner with you to devise and implement a plan to help you reach your health and wellness goals. We will encourage you and walk with you on your journey to wellness and better health.

What exactly is life coaching? Life coaching is a method counseling that facilitates positive changes to help the individual reach desired goals.
These goals can be personal or professional. The life coach acts as a facilitator helping the client find answers that give them the best opportunity for success in reach their goals.
At Protimefit, we utilize a method called motivational interviewing which has been shown to be one of the most effective forms of counseling.
This method works to encourage self-dialogue and critical thinking without fear of judgment by the client.
Our life coaching program also includes self-guided materials to help the client find clarity of thought. These materials help the client to dig deep into the past to uncover what could be hindering progression toward the desired objectives.
The program will give insights into thinking, motivations, fears, self-esteem, and trauma.
This program doe not take the place of mental health professionals and we will recommend clinical intervention if the client's concerns go beyond our scope of practice.
If this all sounds intriguing invite you to book a call to determine if we can meet your needs.

Live strong. Live well.
