ONLINE NUTRITIONAL COACHING
I’m a Registered Nurse whose schedule includes shift work and night shifts on a regular basis. I’ve found it challenging to figure out what to eat and when to eat especially while working nights. Bloating and food sensitivities became a huge issue and as a result my weight kept creeping up.
I also have an autoimmune condition that has been in remission since 2008, however, I had been having symptoms of fatigue as of late and wondered if it had something to do with my eating habits. I suppose I had lost sight of how important my nutrition was and the close relationship between my symptoms and what I was eating. I knew Marcus had education and training to help in this area because he worked with a shift working friend of mine successfully prior to working with me.
I’ve worked with trainers in the past and been somewhat successful but eating and making 5-6 meals is quite a bit of work and super time consuming. I wanted a nutritional plan that was simple and something I could continue long term. Marcus set me up with a program that was tailored to me specifically. He gave me the tools and support in order to be successful. We took pictures weekly, which I found held me accountable and allowed Marcus to see what was working and where adjustments needed to be made. Pictures don’t lie so I was forced to be honest with myself and in turn stuck to the program in the right amounts that worked specifically for me!
I lost pounds on the scale but most importantly my fatigue was non-existent. What I ate and how much I moved directly impacted how much if at all I experienced fatigue and fatigue related symptoms. I also went down a few sizes in my clothing and I was now armed with the knowledge of what foods really worked for me and what foods I needed to avoid completely due to a number of food sensitivities. I also felt completely satisfied with my portions and meals so I didn’t feel the need to snack, graze or munch at all.
Marcus was so supportive throughout the process and checked in on me throughout the week to see how I was doing. I always felt he was genuine and made the time for me whenever I had questions.
Thank you Marcus!
