Laban Cook came to us after years of yo-yo dieting and discouragement, we asked him a few questions about his experience of working with us;
What was your main struggle when you came to Next Step Nutrition?
Sustained weight loss
How did that make you feel?
It was embarrassing being overweight. It was also embarrassing to lose weight multiple times only to gain it back in six months or a year.
What changed while working with us?
I improved my relationship with food and was able to build many small habits that help me enjoy food while maintaining a calorie deficit over time.
What specific results can you share?
I have lost 38 pounds over seven months while still enjoying a whole variety of foods.
I have built habits that include exercising 4 days per week and focusing on workout enjoyment, increased protein intake, drinking more water, increasing my average daily step count from 8,500 last year to 11,500 this year.
What would you say to someone on the fence?
If you’re like me and have spent years overweight or unable to maintain weight loss, focusing on what the scales say won’t help you or make you feel any better.
Jumping onto quick fix fads or 8 week extreme diets will not address the underlying issues.
Instead, work with Jonny to develop a healthy mindset, identify and address the psychological barriers that sabotage you, and build many small healthy habits that accumulate over time to lose weight and keep it off.
I will finish this year as a thin, vibrant, healthy person for the first time in over twenty years.
