Why A Weight Loss Coach

By Aurelie Appasamy


Hey let me ask you something. Do you have a personal trainer who is awesome, you have been training with this PT for a while now, you notice that you are making some progress, but for some reason you just aren't as motivated as you used to be and you just keep cancelling sessions. Or your PT has taught you all about the benefits of exercise and clean eating guidelines but you just cannot stick to the eating plan. Or you just cannot get over those food cravings and end up sabotaging your hard work at the gym? Or perhaps you have seek professional advice from a trained nutritionist who has laid out an eating plan for you but you just cannot stick to the program.

You know that you aren't getting the results that you want and you won't unless your nutrition is right and you struggle with motivation. Your PT tries to motivate you but deep down you know that it's a constant struggle to make it to the gym. Or do you feel guilty or frustrated about not being able to stick to your eating program? One last thing, how is your PT or nutritionist helping your or supporting you though those challenges and most importantly is it working?

A personal trainer is trained in fitness and a nutritionist in nutrition. Neither of those guys are actually trained in human behaviour and mindset. But a trained life coach such as Aurelie Appasamy is. Aurelie is a holistic weight loss coach and mindset specialist for weight loss. Aurelie is trained in human behaviour and understands how the mind works. Her specialty is to assist individuals overcome self-sabotage! Self-sabotage is indeed the reason why many people fail on their weight loss journey and without the right help from a weight loss coach many people fail despite the help of a personal trainer or nutritionist.

Aurelie has been involved in the fitness industry for a long time and unfortunately the approach taken by many weight loss professionals isn't complete and only address one side of the equation. Exercise and nutrition although are the two pillars of weight loss, those alone aren't enough to produce long term results as there is a third pillar of weight loss which is the mindset. A weight loss coach is qualified and trained in mindset coaching and can help you with your mindset.

The thing is many people think that adopting a great success mindset is as simple as being more positive and happy. But this isn't true. Our mindset or state of mind depends on our emotions and emotional states and our thoughts patterns. If it was as easy as being positive wouldn't you be having the outcomes that you wanted by now? Creating the mindset that you need requires a great deal of self-awareness, it includes exploring and examining your fears, the way you have interpreted events from your past and the way you deal with your own emotions on a subconscious level.

A weight loss coach assist you in gaining more insights into your own behaviour, emotions and patterns so that you gain a deeper understanding of your own behaviour. With the help of a weight loss coach you will finally understand why you self-sabotage, why you have those cravings, why it always seems that things get in the way of you reaching your goals. Once this is understood, a weight loss coach will also assist you overcome those emotional barriers with life coaching tools and a techniques such as NLP, EFT and hypnosis.

We are holistic individuals therefore a weight loss coach uses holistic methods to weight loss.

If you are not happy about your weight and body image right now, chances are you are also not happy in other areas of your life as well due to your weight. For instance your weight may be affecting your self esteem which is in turn affecting your relationships. This occurs because we are holistic individuals and every aspects of our lives is related to each other. This also means that if you aren't happy with your body image and health, chances are there is something else impacting on your weight and health. It could be lack of fulfillment in your job, it could be lack of recognition, needs not being met in the bedroom. Aurelie can work with you individually and help you uncover the underlying source of your weight issues. Aurelie will assist you wil various areas of your life as well and help you have more life satisfaction.

There are similarities between weight loss coaching, therapy or counseling or the approach taken by other conventional weight loss professionals such as nutritionist and personal trainers. First of all all three approach provides a supportive environment for it's clients. Each approach focus on motivating clients to succeed.

Each approach have a goal setting component to it. The differences between weight loss coaching and other weight loss methods are that dieticians and PT tend to adopt an adviser role whereby they provide you with advise of the best way to lose weight. Coaching is different in the sense that it focus on gaining clarity around the steps to take as well as possible challenges and how to overcome those challenges. Therapy and counseling focuses more on healing the past. While coaching also pay some attention to past events, coaching mostly focuses on outcomes and is rather results orientated.

A great life coach is empathic because a life coach is trained in aspects of human behavioral science. And a coach such as Aurelie takes an extremely empathic approach to weight loss. Unfortunately many of the approach taken in the conventional weight loss industry is rather blaming and loathing. And this is because people who aren't trained in weight loss psychology do not comprehend human behavior fully. For instance your personal trainer may not fully understand why you eat emotionally or what's behind your lack of motivation and as a result this creates a lot of judgement and misconceptions about weight loss. A weight loss coach of course can assist you and provide you with a judgement free environment for you to fully explore and learn about yourself.
