“Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food” ~Hippocrates
What we eat truly develops who we are as people. What we put into our bodies makes up our tissues, muscles, skin, hair and even brain. It controls our energy levels, our sleep cycles, our hormone production and regulation, and our ability to cope with the stresses of life. This is why the quality of the food we eat, and our dietary habits are so important in achieving and maintaining good health. You are what you eat!
There is so much nutrition and health information constantly circulating around that dictates what to do and eat to be “healthy.” There is always a new diet trending, and a new study that claims to be the answer to weight loss. Sifting through the wealth of nutritional information can be overwhelming, frustrating, and confusing. The truth is, there is not a one size fits all approach to good health. Every individual has different needs and a different emotional connection to food. At Custom Fit, our goal is to find the path that is right for you. We use the most up to date nutritional practices and combine it with lifestyle recommendations and the option of personal training to help you be as healthy as possible.
When I work one on one with a client I am able to develop a program that is custom made specifically for them. I collaborate with their trainer (if they choose to go that route) to develop menu plans that are in conjunction with their fitness goals. Anyone can find a general meal plan that is made for weight loss or lean muscle gain, but what sets us apart at Custom Fit is our approach to individualizing the (scalable) meal plan for each person. We take into account every individuals' unique tastes/preferences, allergies/sensitivities, family history, health complications, cooking experience, finances, and perhaps most importantly the time they have available to dedicate to cooking. Whether you are looking to lose weight, eat for fertility, manage an existing health condition, gain muscle, or simply be healthy, we can work together to set goals and find solutions to achieving them.
One of the keys to long-term success is embracing the belief that eating healthy is not a diet, it is a lifestyle. Let’s face it, diets just don’t work on a long-term basis for most people. I am more of a believer of the 80/20 approach. It is never about deprivation and starving yourself, but rather building a foundation of healthy eating practices that you can always come back to. It’s about finding foods that fit into your lifestyle that help balance your blood sugars, cut cravings, and keep you fuller for longer. There will always be circumstances that cause you to go off path, and that is ok (and encouraged occasionally!). If you learn how to feed your body what it needs most of the time, you can enjoy things that it doesn’t always need some of the time. Once you start feeling and looking better, have higher energy levels, and more mental clarity it will be a lot easier to stay on track.

We believe the best approach to gaining weight and increasing lean muscle mass is through a whole-foods diet rich in clean proteins, healthy fats, and a moderate level of complex carbohydrates.
