THE STORY OF BODY UP: How I Lost 20 Pounds In 7 Weeks and Decided That I Had to Teach Everyone How to Do It

People used to tell me: “Move more, eat less.” But, it didn’t matter if I ate 750 calories or 1500, or whether I ate a meal replacement shake or celery for dinner.  I even tried being vegan and gained eight pounds, to the horror and of my anti-meat eating friends.  

I did high intensity aerobic workouts once or twice a day. I’m not talking “Sweatin to the Oldies” here.  I’m talking P-90X Kempo in the morning followed by Plyometrics or Hip Hop Abs in the afternoon.  And as much as I adore Tony Horton (P90-X), and Shawn T (Hip-Hop Abs), and as fun as it was, I was just not losing weight.  

After five years of starving and exhausting myself,  I was 50 years old and had 50 pounds to lose.  When I asked people for advice, they would uncomfortably bite their lips and say, “Yeah, well, your metabolism is slowing down. This is what happens”, as if that was at all helpful. Cyclically, I would give up. Then I would try again. And I kept gaining weight.  I knew in my bones that there had to be a better way but, I just hadn’t found it yet.

In November 2016,  I began educating myself on ground breaking weight loss science from doctors, researchers and biohackers who are getting amazing fast and long-term weight loss results with their patients and clients. These doctors/authors include Dr. Jason Fung (The Obesity Code), Dr. Mark Hyman (Eat Fat, Get Thin), Dr. Joseph Mercola (Fat for Fuel), Dr. David Ludwig (Always Hungry), and Dave Asprey (The Bulletproof Diet).   A light bulb went on in my head.  I compiled the best of this information,  tried it, and it actually worked.  I lost 11 pounds in 2 weeks, which is nothing short of miraculous since I wasn’t able to shed a pound previously.  I shed another 9 pounds in 5 1/2 weeks.   I was kind of shocked … and over-the-moon happy! 

I began experimenting on myself, deliberately gaining and losing the same ten or fifteen pounds over and over to prove that what I was doing really worked. And when I was certain it did work, I knew then, without a doubt, that I had to show everyone how to do this for themselves. So, I founded Body Up Coaching, combing all my previous 20 years of experience as a personal development coach with these cutting edge weight loss techniques to form a powerful proven weight loss coaching system,  The Weight Loss Revolution Program.  

The program focuses on boosting your metabolism and balancing your hormonal system to get your body to burn excess fat, like it’s supposed to.  It also focuses on increasing the healthy bacteria in your gut that will actually make you thinner. (Yes, there are bacteria already in your gut that make you gain weight and bacteria that can make you lose weight.) Eating the right foods will feed the healthy “thin person” bacteria.  

Since 2017,  the success stories have been piling up for clients in my program.  Some are doing even better than I did… shedding 30 lbs.  in the first ten weeks, and they continue to shed weight and get healthier.  The program helps them to eliminate sugar cravings and brain fog and improve their energy.  Clients have even eliminated blood pressure and diabetes medications.

The Weight Loss Revolution Program uses a powerful mental reconditioning system that rewires the mind to desire real, healthy food.  This coaching program is being endorsed by psychologists as the “total package in a weight loss program”  because I use this system to address you, the client, as a complete person:  body, mind and spirit.

" Blaming overeating as the cause of weight-gain is like blaming gravity as the cause of death if someone jumps off a roof. It’s certainly a factor but, it would be ridiculous to say it was the cause. Hunger, as you’ll experience, is hormonally driven, and overeating isn’t a conscious decision.

It’s not about willpower."
