InBody Scan Add-on

InBody Scans create additional accountability for you and they provide Coach Paul with a great deal of information about your current fitness and health. They also provide a strong feedback loop for making adjustments to your diet as we move through the program.

If you select a membership with the InBody Scan add-on, we’ll do an InBody Scan during your nutrition session. InBody Scans are generally $45 each, but are available as an add-on membership with nutrition for just $15. InBody Scan Add-ons are not separately schedulable nor are there any “make-ups” if you miss a nutrition session.

Nutrition Lab: Look Good, Be Healthy, and Get Strong

Our diet and weight loss programs are based on the research of many commercial diet programs such as Precision Nutrition, Dash diet, Whole 30, Keto, etc.  Our blended approach takes the best concepts from these diets and builds you a lifestyle diet to help you look, feel good, and lose weight.  Being successful requires making incremental improvements to your diet as your weight changes.  In addition, properly executing the diet is also important.  Concepts such a glycemic load, energy systems, nutrition density, etc. can be daunting to learn.  We break them down for you and provide you with specific instructions on what to change.  White Rice becomes quinoa.  We swap your ribeye for filet.  Orange juice becomes and an apple and melon fruit salad, etc.

In a nutshell, we will help you design and implement a diet that works for your body.

We’ll make sure you understand it;

We’ll help you implement it; and

We’ll hold you accountable for following it.

Our Diet & Weight Loss Program at a Glance

There are no easy fixes with nutrition.  There are no magic pills.  How many times have you said, “I know what to do, I’m just not doing it.”  Successful dieting practice isn’t from going from A to B.  It’s about going from A to E.  Breaking down steps into reasonable changes that you can do.  And that’s exactly how we teach nutrition lab.  It bite-sized increments that you can understand with an experienced coach that can help you.  Whether you have seen a nutritionist in Alexandria, VA or not, losing weight is challenging.  It seems like everywhere you look there is some new fad diet that is supposed to work.  We teach diet systems based on leading research from nutritionists and dietitians.  We work with nutritionists in Alexandria VA and Washington DC to update and optimize our nutrition program.

Nutrition & Weight Loss Plan Alexandria VA

Starving yourself isn’t the solution.  Eating butter in your coffee, making celery-based shakes, or buying some magic powder to rescue your metabolism isn’t going to work either.  Did you know that a super low-calorie diet often creates metabolism problems?  That’s why one of the first things we do is figure out how many calories you need to eat.  Whether you hire a nutrition coach or nutritionist in Alexandria VA, you’ll need to have a diet that is customized for you and your metabolism.

Is Nutrition Coaching Right For Me?

Nutrition is especially important if your goals are to:

  • Lose Weight,
  • Increase Muscle Volume (Hypertrophy),
  • Reduce Chronic Fatigue,
  • Decrease Post-Workout Soreness, or
  • Reduce Inflammation Levels.

If you eat better, you are going to feel better. It really is that simple.

What Can I Expect in Nutrition Lab?

Each session we go over a new principle of Nutrition Lab and work together to help you start implementing the principle into your diet.  We work together to make sure everyone understands what to do and has a plan to make it happen.

    My husband and I recently had a body scan and nutrition coaching session with Paul. The session went really well. Paul took plenty of time to explain the results of the scan and what steps would help us to reach our goals. Paul gave us a few straightforward, but not obvious, suggestions and made sure we understood why the changes were important and the science behind them. To date, the changes have been pretty easy to implement.

    The nutritional counseling that Paul provides is totally worth it. Now matter how much you know about nutrition, he backs it up with the science – down to the macro nutrient level. I’ve learned so much, and know that I have more to learn!

    I started training with Paul last May, and I knew nutrition was going to be my biggest challenge. But I have to say – if you follow Paul’s recommendations – you will absolutely achieve results. I think I lost 8 percent body fat in about 5 months – and it wasn’t that hard. It does take effort on your part, planning your food, resisting temptation (my biggest weakness). But Paul is supportive – he knows life gets in the way sometimes.

    The really nice part about the way Paul counsels is that he talks with you about what you like, don’t like, and works that into whatever your plan calls for – whether it be body fat reduction or muscle building. And then works with you along the way to make sure you continue to achieve results.

    I have no doubt that you’ll achieve results if you decide to work with Paul!

    This is a nutrition review. Paul and I recently sat down to review my InBody results.
    I was very impressed by his approach. I’ve been vigilant over my food intake for years. I thought I knew a lot. Wrong! His level of analysis of my diet was very detailed, and he found errors that I would never have expected existed.
    Paul’s ability to take complicated matters and give me tools that I could use immediately is rare and valuable. We reviewed 4 big things sabotaging my fat loss and he created a compliance sheet. Which means I will be able to implement things right away. Don’t waste anymore of your time trying to understand the chemical workings of weight loss, start the right way (or re-visit your methods like I did) with Paul, a true professional.
