How Paul Dropped his Cholesterol with our Nutrition Coaching Program
In my early 30's I was diagnosed with genetically high triglyceride and cholesterol levels.
I went on medication to treat the issues.
After 15+ years, I decided to go off the medication and control my triglyceride and cholesterol levels with diet and exercise.
The DSC nutrition program was the perfect thing to help me get there.
I was having difficulty finding the correct healthy food choices before I began the program. I would try different diets/foods.
I wasn’t consistent.
I couldn’t measure the results. I would eventually get very frustrated.
The program organizes my goals, the foods I eat, and then measures how I am doing.
Having a personal coach to review my numbers and talk over any problems is key.
Beth would point out areas I needed to work on and make specific suggestions.
About a month into the program, I realized that working out was only half of the story.
Once I started eating better, I starting seeing the results that I didn’t see from just working out.
I felt my workouts were stronger, while my waistline was shrinking.
For the first time in almost 20 years, my triglycerides and cholesterol levels are both within the normal range without medication.
My triglycerides dropped from 326 to 149 and cholesterol from 293 to 160!
The food logging helped me focus on exactly what I was eating and when I was eating it.
It was easy to fool myself into believing that I was eating well.
The food logging numbers don’t lie!
Once the program starts, take your time. It can seem overwhelming at first. Find one thing that really works for you and build on it.
Don’t try to change how you eat, change what you eat.
I didn’t try many of the recipes because I don’t cook often.
I don’t believe cooking meals every week would have been sustainable for me. Instead, I worked to find healthier replacements for my normal diet and eating patterns.
