It has been a pleasure to work with Debby K as my nutrition and fitness coach and I learned more from my time with her than I have in 20 years in the fitness industry myself!
My story with Debby K goes like this:
I started The Carb-Nite Solution Diet on my own after hearing about it through another website. I was in the throes of my mid-life “situation” and finding my body putting on fat even though I wasn’t doing anything different. I ate fairly healthily and worked out quite a bit so to say that I was baffled and frustrated at my seemingly-rapid fat loss would be an understatement.
After about 1 month on the plan by myself, I realized from reading websites and blogs that the diet required some tweaking and fine tuning and there seemed so many ways to do this that I was unsure how to proceed. I contacted Debby K and we immediately started our work together.
Her services consisted of daily emails, nutrition counseling and changes to my exercise routine to facilitate what the diet was trying to accomplish: fat loss through macro-nutrient manipulation. She encouraged me on foods to continue eating, ones to get rid of, and replacements for foods I loved but that were not doing me any favors. This is not a simple affair and the science and details behind this protocol can be overwhelming.
Debby helped me every single day. I wrote her emails pummeling questions and concerns at her and she just calmly and clearly answered them. I was often not successful in keeping the carbs under control and/or carrying out her suggestions, but she kept on encouraging me and she kept on repeating the same thing to me, until I finally got it. She celebrated with me when I did (“good JOB”) and we formed a partnership that sailed me through several months of successful mastery of the diet. I was very concerned since I could not “stop the train” that was midlife fat accumulation and not only did we accomplish that, but I shed some as well.
Recently, in February 2013, I have switched to a Carb Back Loading type strategy and I am going it alone at this time, to gain some insight into what my body does with various amounts of carbs and days. I am basically using the strategies she taught me to tailor this to my own life and style. I could never have done that on my own, NEVER! And I’m a smart individual with a background in personal training and group exercise instruction. This was a highly specialized approach that Debby K has over 2 decades of experience implementing herself and helping others to use, as well.
I will be back to coaching at some time in the near future and I encourage anyone interested in it to give it a shot! It was most certainly worth the price and the knowledge she shared with me is now enabling me to try it on myself. That, too, was the result of Debby’s guidance since she helped me put an “exit plan” into place for these next few weeks or months utilizing what we discovered about my body.
This coaching service was an absolute pleasure, success and positive experience for me.
