I needed a coach to keep me going.. Part 1
I always get that shock look in people's face whenever they hear my response to their question of 'Where do you learn on how to lose the weight?'
If you've been following me here, you do know that the answer to that questions is "the Internet". It's the major source of my research. I used uncle google so much to research and find stuff, and along the way I've stumble across many materials that assisted me.. while most of it is free, there are some that I've actually bought them.
These are what I meant by my personal coaches, and I've a few of them! covering from nutritional standpoint, up to the training programs. I've shared about them throughout this blog many times.
We do need coaches, they're the expert in their field (they've done enough researched and worked with many other people) and most of times, we needed them to kick our posterior!! See all the great athletes, celebrities, etc, they all have coaches.
Let me share with you my personal favorite, especially with regards to what to eat and not to eat (the nutritional expect). It's none other than Isabel's program -- at least 90% of what she had taught in her book.. I'm following it religiously.. She has a great (sometimes hilarious!) nutritional newsletter that I will definitely read everytime! I just like the way she writes.. she's my personal coach for a long time already (see my earlier post with regards to her)
You're asking, why just 90% sher?? Well, although I've approved or agreed to most of it, there are some of the information that.. let's just say, I've discovered from my own experiences that I prefer my own way.. well, I do have my own likes and dislikes..
But I tell you, give Isabel's program a shot, I can't recommend enough. Even if you don't follow what she say, I'm very sure you'll learn a thing or two (don't forget to subscribe to her free newsletter).
