During the GenHealth Coaching Program Ashleigh lost 10kg and reduced her over all measurements by 40cm
Ashleigh’s challenge was stubborn fat around buttocks and thighs, low energy, mood fluctuations, and big cravings for sugar and carbs. Ashleigh had been dieting for as long as she could remember and her deepest worry was ever finding peace with body and if she would ever be happy.
In Ashleigh’s words
“I was self conscious and unhappy with my body about 90% of the time. Before I did Tarryn’s program, I was stuck in yo yo dieting cycle: I was absolutely constantly dieting. I was your classic tried everything but nothing works sort of person”.
The first thing Ashleigh did was address her unstable blood sugars by setting a meal plan she could follow for 7 days. This allowed her moods and energy levels to stabilise.
We she set a 6 week goal with a meal plan and initial exercise plan she could follow around her work schedule.
She had a plan for meals she could prepare, meals she could buy, and meals she could also eat on the run if required or if over the weekend she didn’t want to meal prep.
We also set her up on a supplement regime to address any nutritional deficiencies, liver support for stubborn fat around her thighs, and more recently a homeopathic remedy to help with liver detoxification.
Ashleigh’s biggest learning during the course was the effect her hormones were having on stubborn fat areas around her buttocks and thighs that wouldn’t shift with previous dieting.
“There were so many important and valuable things I learned during the program. The thing that has stuck the most is about hormones. Before I believed that a calorie was a calorie and they all had the same effect within the body. Now however I know that it is your hormones that are in charge of how much weight you can lose, where you lose it from and if they are not performing at their best, then it will be very difficult.”
Another challenge Ashleigh had was trying to unlearn the things she had previously picked up from other diets and information that she had been heavily consuming. The main problem with this is that there was very little – if any context to the bigger picture and where the information she was getting actually fit into her picture
“The year before, I’d managed to lose about 10kg on my own but I found it very hard to maintain, as I wasn’t really sure what I was doing – there are so many different messages out there about what to eat, what not to eat, exercise etc etc. As a result I ended up trying many different health fads but nothing seem to work and get the extra weight off. It was very frustrating! I ended up just getting fed up and realised that I needed to make the change for good if I ever wanted to be truly comfortable and happy with the way I looked.”
Here are more of Ashleigh’s own words as she describes her experience.
“I also learned about tying my goals to my personal values. In fact I’m quite pleased that for the first time in a long time, my weight is not at the forefront of my mind! I’m happy with where I’m at. In saying that, I know that if I ever wanted to get leaner, I know I’d be able to.”
Ashleigh felt relieved the more that she was able to put her dieting puzzle together.
“The weight loss and health approach was completely different to what I had learned in the past through magazines and other health professionals. I have never had such a successful weight loss transformation before”
“My experience working with Tarryn in GenHealth Coaching Program has definitely changed the way I view health. Before, I’d attempt to start some new fad diet but because I didn’t know WHY I was eating or doing something, the diet tended to fail. With this program, I learned the ‘why’. I now have so much more knowledge surrounding eating and exercise which I apply on a daily basis.”
“I would recommend GenHealth to people that are struggling with weight loss, stuck in a cycle of dieting, and don’t know how to maintain weight once they reach their goal”
