Webinar: Metabolic Flow covers nutrition, movement including exercise, stress & sleep

90 minutes, up to 99 attendees;

Metabolism, or the rate at which your body burns calories, is directly related to health, fitness, and weight loss. A low metabolism can make it harder to achieve all three. Nutrition, movement (including exercise), sleep, and stress all have an impact on your metabolism, and research provides us with substantial guidance on how to manage these to our benefit. We will begin with the theory and application of the “three Ws” of nutrition (what to eat, when to eat, and water) and core components of movement and exercise (cardiovascular, interval, and strengthening). We will then discuss how to coordinate exercise and nutrition so that they are mutually supportive, avoiding the potential irony of exercise actually reducing your health, performance, or ability to lose weight. We will also touch on how exercise and nutrition interact with stress hormones and sleep, since these aspects of our lives are critically dependent on each other.  This seminar is geared toward anyone who wonders why their exercise has hit a plateau, why they can’t lose weight in spite of dieting, or why some aspects of their metabolic health have worsened even as they try to improve it.

Workshop: Fixing Your Metabolism     90 min plus 30 min Q&A, up to 12 attendees;

In this workshop, we will chart out how we eat, move, stress, and sleep through our 24-hour day to discover metabolic gaps holding us back from our goals.  This is done in real time on the whiteboard so that each attendee quickly sees what aspects of their lifestyle might be their metabolic limiters.  It is recommended you attend the “Metabolic Flow” webinar before joining this workshop so you have been exposed to the concepts.

Webinar: How to Fix Any Diet covers how to protect or grow lean tissue for weight loss, gain or maintenance

90 minutes plus 30 min Q&A, up to 99 attendees;

The body has an amazing ability to adapt to almost any diet, and yet we have basic minimum needs to stay healthy (defined by the National Academy of Medicine).  These minimum needs set limits to how low we can go with macronutrients and Calories before losing more lean tissue than body fat or struggling to heal our lean tissue after exercise, both of which can reduce or eliminate our weight loss progress.  Meeting minimum macronutrient needs also maintains or grows lean tissue for those looking to maintain or increase their healthy weight.  Meeting basic needs therefore enables healthy weight loss while dieting, avoids overtraining symptoms from exercise, and coordinates dieting with exercise to optimize both.  This seminar reviews the science and application of these concepts to help you discover gaps in your nutrition that are holding you back from reaching your metabolic goals.

Workshop: Fixing Your Diet   90 minutes plus 30 min Q&A, up to 12 attendees;

In this workshop, you will see how to estimate meal portions based on your hourly protein and carbohydrate needs, as well as your daily vegetable and dietary fat portions based on your goals.  We will then sketch out each attendees eating pattern on the Zoom white board in real time so we can each see how to easily fix each of our diets regardless of how different they are from each other.  It is highly recommended to separately attend the “How to Fix Any Diet” webinar wherein the concepts underlying this workshop are discussed.

Webinar: Sports Nutrition covers recovery meals and snacks, hydration including electrolytes & overtraining

90 minutes, up to 99 attendees;

Insufficient nutrition undercuts healing and is documented to be the most common cause of overtraining, meaning that overtraining is under-healing.   Effective sports nutrition therefore:

  • Overcomes overtraining sticking points so athletes can recover and work out harder while staying healthy.
  • Allows athletes to maintain healthy body composition targets for a high power-to-weight ratio.
  • Enables an athlete’s most heavily used muscles to refuel so those muscles fatigue slower in subsequent workouts, maintaining their movement biomechanics to reduce sports injury risk of connective tissue across their most heavily used joints.

Reducing sports injury and avoiding overtraining symptoms lie at the very heart of what it means for an athlete to stay “healthy” for a sustainable productive athletic career.  This seminar provides an overview of recommendations from governing organizations including the International Olympic Committee and American College of Sports Medicine, then demonstrates how these recommendations converge on the concept of nutrient flow to enable sustained healing to combat the fuel loss and tissue damage of hard training regimen.

Workshop: Sports Nutrition: Overcoming Overtraining for Health & Performance

90 minutes plus 30 min Q&A, up to 12 attendees;

In this workshop you will estimate portions for recovery meals and snacks, hydration including electrolyte needs in workouts, and ways of pushing your sports nutrition further when simply trying to eat healthy is falling short of keeping up with your training.
