Becoming the Ultimate Coach #4 covers defining healthy. There are people, messages, advertisements etc. that try and tell us what is healthy every single day.
But what is healthy for one person (having an ice cream cone with your child after playing at the park) can be unhealthy for others (eating a pint of Haagen-Dazs by yourself each night).
One of the first things our Weight Loss Behavior Coaches do with clients is help them define healthy and in doing so teach their clients that healthy behaviors should be seen on a spectrum.
There is no need to jump from one end to the other because that approach will inevitably lead to backsliding back to unhealthy.
Weight Loss Behavior Coaches teach their clients how to create healthier replacement behaviors that incrementally move their clients toward the healthy side of the spectrum so that they can reach their goals and move beyond them instead of yo-yoing up and down on the scale like the majority of people out there.
