Wellness Q & A

How can nutritional and exercise coaching help me?

Everyone wants to be healthy, look good, and feel good, but diet changes and exercise can be hard. On your own, it’s easy to slip into old habits, skip workouts, and backslide on your progress.

Nutritional and exercise coaching offers you personalized support and guidance on your journey to optimal wellness. With Dr. Petheram’s help, you can achieve your goals.

How do you design a nutrition and exercise program?

Dr. Petheram tailors your nutrition and exercise plan just for you. To figure out what you need, he first asks you nutrition questions related to:

  • How much time you can dedicate to meal prep every day
  • How many meals you prefer to eat daily
  • How much support you require
  • How often you eat out
  • If you want a sweet snack every day

He then moves on to exercise questions pertaining to:

  • How much time you can dedicate to exercise daily and weekly
  • What types of exercise you enjoy (walking, running, swimming, biking, etc.)

Dr. Petheram also discusses your weight loss and health goals with you. For example, do you want to lose a significant amount of weight? Are you trying to gain muscle mass? Do you want to eliminate a specific health problem? Your goals heavily impact your personal plan.

Based on your discussion, he designs a plan that covers details that are important to your journey, such as:

  • Daily exercises
  • Meal plans
  • Portion sizes
  • Calorie intake

When he designs your individualized plan, Dr. Petheram also takes into account your sex, age, existing health conditions, and current weight.

Is nutrition and exercise coaching right for me?

Nutrition and exercise coaching might be right for you if you:

  • Are seeking better health

  • Want to discover how to properly fuel your body
  • Want to improve your mental clarity
