Nutrition Packages

Please find below our current nutrition packages on offer.

“Lockdown” has a lot to answer for when it comes to deterioration in both our mental and physical health; amidst a myriad of things to worry about, one of the most frustrating “fall-outs”, for many, has been weight gain.  And now, all of a sudden, the summer holidays are here – one of the hardest times of year to shift those extra pounds.  Plus, it is likely that the “Corona Stone” is not simply due to a bit of over-eating; stress, changes to lifestyle and a reduction in usual exercise levels may all have played their part.

Weight-Loss Resistance

This means that relying on calorie reduction, to create a “calorie deficit”, probably won’t be all it takes to lose this extra weight.  Stricter calorie control, so you are eating less and less, may cease to make a difference; a slippery slope and one that can lead to nutrient deficiencies as well as mental and physical health complications.  And, to add “insult to injury”, it can actually lead to weight gain, instead of loss, over time.  This is weight-loss resistance, when the “calories in versus calories out” equation no longer works.

So what goes wrong?

Weight loss can be especially tricky for women as so many hormones play a role in weight management. Especially after childbirth or during peri-menopause and menopause, women may find they have gained weight, which they then struggle to shift.  Blood sugar instability, thyroid issues, fluctuating oestrogen and progesterone as well as disruption to the daily cortisol rhythm can all affect a woman’s metabolism and, consequently, ability to lose weight.  Soaring stress hormones are also an issues and, in fact, high cortisol is often what is driving fat storage around the waistline.

What can be done?

Supporting the liver and the gut to improve detoxification and improving blood sugar balance are my first priorities when it comes to resetting the body.  I may manipulate macro-nutrients and address mineral and vitamin deficiencies through supplementation as well as offering specific liver support, in some cases. I will also work to improve gut health with “gut-friendly” foods as well as pro and prebiotics. With clients who are really struggling to shift any weight I also offer carefully monitored and personalised fasting and fast-mimicking to help boost metabolism and thermogenics to kick-start fat-burning.

Behavioural coaching

If you really want to lose weight you have to be in it for the “long-haul” – I totally “get” that this is the hard part but consistency will pay off and embedding changes will ensure you don’t pile all the weight back on after your programme.  Furthermore, you have to understand what drives your food choices and behaviours.  This is where dietary behavioural coaching can help you break free from entrenched, unhelpful patterns and develop strong, healthier habits instead.  I will also help you focus on longer-term “pull-motivation” goals so you can free yourself from the vicious cycle of “quick-fix” mentality and “push goals”, which are very hard to sustain.  Our emotional state is intrinsic to how we eat, so my change programmes always delve beneath the surface to uncover unhelpful or self-limiting beliefs that fuel self-sabotage!

Working with me

Truthfully, I’ve been ambivalent about weight-loss programmes for some years;  I really don’t want to “put people on diets” yet I know I can help those who are seriously committed to changing their body composition for good.  So I am once again taking on private weight-loss clients to work together for a minimum of 3 months.  As my programmes are an intense, 2-way process I now insist on a “good fit” preliminary consultation; this is a free, no obligation, 20-minute WhatsApp, Face-Time or phone call with me. I am fully-booked throughout August but I am already taking bookings for the autumn and I will also be starting my first ever group Weight-Loss Programme in September.  Email me if you would like more details or would like to schedule a prelim consultation.

Valentine’s day does tend to polarise – either you cynically sneer at commercialised romance or you’ve got the pink champagne on ice! Oh wait, perhaps there’s another Valentine’s type – outwardly proclaiming romance is dead whilst secretly wishing for a gazillion red roses to land at the door.  Which one is you?

If I’m honest, I’ve always been a flowers, cards and romantic gestures kinda’ gal (although I’m practical and realise I simply haven’t got enough vases for a gazillion roses!). However, time has shown me that romance really can go nowhere if you don’t nourish the most enduring relationship you’ll ever have – you know this right?  But it can be so tricky to get this one right and many of us worry about being selfish or feel guilty to take time and resources to care for ourselves.  It’s definitely not selfish though, it is simply about “fitting your own oxygen mask before helping others”.

And, the naked truth is, that it’s really a tragic love story if we wait until we’re broken and spent, with nothing more to give.  Instead be your own valentine; rekindle your heart fire and renew your commitment to living your most enlivened life so you can give love most generously.

Insomnia, lack of energy, weight gain, skin problems, anxiety, irritability, food addiction or uncontrolled eating or drinking are all signs that your body is out of balance.

For the past four years I’ve been running guided dietary and lifestyle change programmes. The results have been truly amazing with participants experiencing a radical improvement to their health and fitness.  Losing fat and gaining lean muscle, sleeping better, and seeing a reduction in chronic health problems, including those caused by hormone imbalances, as well as feeling brim-full of energy. Improvements are also visible; clearer skin, glossier hair and brighter eyes, with under-eye darkness diminishing too.  This is the power of optimum nutrition and it is a million miles away from the deprivation/starvation of a typical weight loss diet.

Beautiful Bride Programme

Everyone wants to look and feel their very best on their wedding day and so it is not surprising that many brides embark on drastic diet and fitness regimes before their big day. There are plenty of programmes out there, but many rely on severe calorie restriction that will not only leave you looking gaunt, but will also increase the likelihood of you piling all the weight back on the minute you return to eating normally on your honeymoon.

Many combine a very low-calorie diet with a gruelling and time-consuming exercise schedule, which increases your risk of nutrient deficiencies and, in turn, can weaken your immune system, deplete your energy levels and play havoc with your skin.

That is why The Health Architect is now offering  bespoke guided programmes focussing on becoming, stronger, healthier and more toned, whilst also promoting weight loss,  so by the time you walk down the aisle you will look and feel amazing.  Click below for details of the most popular 12-week Bridal Packages.

In addition, shorter or longer packages and packages tailored to those living outside of Cumbria can also be arranged – call Sarah for an informal chat to discuss your requirements.
