I was really blown away by Drew Manning’s message and his way of expressing it. September is a time where many clients are doing a reset post summer and it’s a fresh start for many. Having a solid foundation for long term success is the key. The foundation includes your mind and your food. Having a plan and tools for improving your mindset is so important. If you have found maintenance a challenge then it’s truly time to look be... Read more

Let’s face it, we are dealing with food and people. There is a reason dieting is a billion dollar industry and if it were black and white and easy there would not be so much suffering about weight, food, eating, pleasure and our body. So how does a coach administer a black and white medical protocol and honour the human side of food, emotions and all that is connected to being in a physical body.

Brian is so honest, humble, compassionate and willing to share about his journey. He was a total pleasure to coach.He’d show up with a food journal that had raisins in his oatmeal, cooked onions in his dinner and various other fun deviations. But he was so open to learn and understand why the protocol is so crisp. He had a vision, a plan and deep desire to feel better and to be his best self. He had the staff at Vital Body laugh...

This musing reflects on some recent Phase 4 workshops we have hosted at our clinic. The workshop is an exploration into the world of phase 4 and all that it entails. Wellness is more than just what you are eating. And as clients start to look at their life in phase 4 and their deep ties to food there is always a great conversation that ensues. If there is no answer then what? What do I do about over eating? What do I do when I h... Read more

Sherri Kiley is an internet friend of mine. Amazing how you can somehow find like minded folks in the massive internet ocean. She radiates happiness and as we exchanged ideas on how to run a clinic I just knew we needed her thoughts for mibo musings.  She has some great things to say. I have pages of quotes from her like "the crux of what we do is maintenance, I start talking habits and maintenance on day 1", or "yes it's about usi... Read more

It happens. Let’s talk about it. This 20 minute episode discusses some hot tips to beat those habits that creep back in. But of course there is not one answer but each person has a sweet spot/zone where maintenance becomes natural and easy. And that sweet spot is not based on information or science, it’s based on listening to your body,and flowing with with the changes in your life. It’s not static, it’s not a checklist, but rather...

You want to listen to this just because Moyra’s voice is so soothing and peaceful. She shares about her weight loss journey, the ups and downs (no pun intended), and finding peace with herself, her weight, and staying true to what feels right for her. This was technically a phase 4 check in but we both knew it was also going to be a podcast so it’s not quite a phase 4 check in but it is. Phase 4 is an exploration, it often involves... Read more

So let’s chat about making it last, how to benefit from it and be successful. Ideal Protein phase 1 works every time. If you are struggling at staying on protocol or maintaining you for sure want to look at the non food aspects of weight loss. Set yourself up to win.

Healthy treats is a thing! And there are so many things labeled as natural and healthy these days that are truly NOT natural or healthy that you do need to be aware. Recently I bought a Lindt bar, telling myself that I’ve eaten so well for a month that I can handle having just one or two pieces, let it melt, enjoy and save the rest for another week. Total fail. I ate the whole bar (in one sitting). But I realize now it’s not ME it’... Read more

Ideal Protein is an amazing food solution with a huge commitment to lifestyle and helping people have long term results. They know that Phase 1 always works, everyone can lose weight. But the key is keeping it off and enjoying your new lifestyle. Phase 4 starts in Phase 1 really and is the heart of what an Ideal Protein coach does. But most dieters come in focused on the weight loss because that’s what’s bothering them. They know l... Read more

Even the best of the best of dieters we’ve seen take a left turn in December. Do not underestimate the power of your environment. I recommend acknowledging that it can influence you and then plan accordingly. Set yourself up to win. Have a food plan and a what to think plan. See Checklist and Worksheet at end of this post. What do I mean by environment? The display of advent calendars at the grocery store (i.e. chocolate), food at ... Read more

It’s a short musing today but super relevant. We have many dieters that ask this. I totally understand the question. There you are feeling awesome on Phase 1, you are keen to move into phases 2, 3 and 4 and are feeling confident you will exercise and eat well forever and you are thinking you could (or should be able to) shed the last ten pounds on phase 4. We just never see that happen. Phase 4 is balanced eating and is not designe... Read more

Most dieters I have met love food and love to eat. Many even think that loving food is a problem and they come in wanting to tame this part of themselves. They want more will power, they want to eat less, they want to not feel so trapped by their love of food. I start with letting them know it’s okay to love food and you can love food and lose weight and keep it off. “But I’m Italian” or “But I’m from Iran!” or “You have no idea my... Read more

Dieters often focus on food and forget to pay attention to what they say to themselves. Negative self talk has a huge impact on your success. A coach can help you identify what you say to yourself and start some new kinder habits.  Gina has an amazing way with clients. She's straight, insightful and yet so compassionate and understanding. She knows it's not easy sometimes but she knows it's worth it to hang in there and be kind and... Read more

Interview with Peggy. This woman is amazing. She's open, honest, and has truly let go of her past and is owning her future. Despite some rather challenging (understatement) experiences as a child and feeling hopeless as an adult she had a dream and she pursued it. Rock bottom for Peggy was rough but she shines a bright light on the present and is truly a gift to listen to.
