Nutrition Coaching, Meal Plan and Diets

During the Nutrition Coaching session, we will build a custom diet based on the foods you eat, travel requirements, and food intolerance.  We include a complimentary InBody Scan with your nutrition session.  We use the InBody Scan to determine whether your changes in body fat and muscle mass are within our estimates.  Based on the results we receive from the InBody 570 Scan, we make adjustments to your diet to dial in the weight loss programming.

Nutrition Program Details

Sports Nutrition Counseling Summary

Our methodology is based on the leading commercial diet programs such as Precision Nutrition, Dash diet, Whole 30, Keto, etc.  We compare what you are currently eating, and help you make modifications to fit it within the regime of an existing program that works.  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 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.

The best diet is the one that works for you.  The best diet coach, is the coach that most quickly and consistently helps you find and execute that diet.

How our Nutrition Coaching Works
All of our nutrition sessions are customized to the individual person.  But in general, we review your eating patterns and food journal.  We prefer using myfitness pal.  We analyze consistency of calories, carbs, fats, carbohydrates, sugar, fiber and sodium.  We check for a proper ratios of healthy fats, complete amino acids, and glycemic load balance.   We look for common allergens in foods, and provide you with individualized recommendations on what to change. We answer any and all questions you have about how to make the changes.  We will build a shopping list and meal plan so that you can consistently implement the diet.  We help you with dieting while you are traveling.  We analyze restaurant menus, etc.  You will also receive a compliance chart so that you can monitor whether you staying on track with your changes.  We will recommend fitness and nutrition supplements to include.  Supplements are always optional in our diets.

  • 3 Weekdays and 2 Weekend days journaled in MyFitnesspal with pictures of all food you eat on your phone.

  • A water journal recording how many bottles of water you are drinking a day.  Be very literal on this.  Buy a big case from Costco, and drink only the water you buy from that case.  Tell me how many days it takes you to drink X bottles, wherein each bottle is Y ounces.

Tip #3: Removing Bad Carbs From Your Diet

Is Low Carb the Right Way to Go?

Some carbs are good, some are bad, some are just plain evil when it comes to weight loss.  America’s food companies take advantage of people’s lack of knowledge with products like: diet soda, bean pasta, and “low carb” bread.  Are these reengineered carbs goods for weight loss?

Paul explains how to analyze whether a carb is good, careful, or bad with 7 simple rules.

Tip #1: Multivitamins For Weight Loss

Multivitamins Help Improve Weight Loss

Your metabolism will slow down if you are missing essential vitamins or minerals from your diet. In addition, Vitamin and Mineral deficiencies can increase inflammation levels, and decrease the body’s ability to repair tissue. Taking a multi-vitamin is easy, and it adds some insurance against missing an essential vitamin or mineral. Please keep in mind that taking a multivitamin is no substitute for getting your nutrition from whole food sources. Absorption from multivitamins can vary significantly.

Paul generally recommends the following 3 multivitamins for clients interested in weight loss or hypertrophy…

  2. 5 out of 5 Paul, a True Professional.

    Jenn Schwartz

    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.

  3. 5 out of 5 I Have No Doubt You'll Achieve Results

    Lisa F

    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!

  4. 5 out of 5 The Session Went Really Well.

    Katie N.

    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.
