I’ve Been Up To Something…

… And it’s AWESOME!!

For the past six months I’ve been working on a project that I’ve kept on the down-low with everyone except those people who have been involved. But now I’m ready to dish about it to the world!

Why so super secret?

Well, to be quite honest, I wanted to make sure it didn’t turn out to be a complete and utter disaster first. When I started this experiment back in mid-August, I honestly had no idea how it was going to go… It had the potential to be wonderful… It also had the potential to be a nightmare and go south in a big way.

So, there’s the backstory…

Last May I started a health coaching certification program. The program started out a little bit slow and I wasn’t sure if I was going to stick it out or not because – well, it was EXPENSIVE and I wasn’t sure I was going to get the ROI I expected. But, after several months, the lectures got very interesting so I stuck with it. I’m glad I did. The program is like the intersection between personal development and nutrition, so it really is kind of my jam!

Then, at the end of June, we held our amazing Breakthrough Summit at The Shores event here in Daytona Beach and during the retreat I had client after client come to me asking for advice on their nutrition – how to get better sleep, how to lose weight, how to just FEEL GOOD. So, at the end of the weekend, we were all sitting around and someone asked when I was going to create a health coaching program. I told them all that I had JUST STARTED the certification program. They persisted, so I asked them if I put together a group program would they all join it?  They all said “Yes,” so I committed to launching something in August.

But I was crystal clear with them all, I had NO IDEA what would happen or how it would all unfold. I told them I couldn’t promise them ANYTHING – they were my guinea pigs. Strangely, they all seemed to like that idea.

Deb and I had been playing with our own dietary philosophies for a while and we had finally hit upon a formula that seemed to work… It seemed to work regardless of whether we ate high carb, low carb, paleo, vegetarian, vegan, omnivorous, etc. And, unlike so many other programs we had tried, it was simple, sustainable, and didn’t stop working as time went by.

In July, I contacted my guinea pigs and told them we would start on August 14th and that they needed some nominal skin in the game, so they each paid me a stupidly small amount of money and, voila, they were members of my “pilot program.”

Week-by-week, I wrote lessons on nutrition, based on what I already knew and what I was learning…

We sent mindset lessons from Deb…

There were recipes…

Exercise suggestions…

Videos…

Q&A…

It was a BLAST!

His insulin dosages have steadily been reduced since August – TWELVE times!!

But more than that, people started sending me messages that they were feeling better…

Their clothes were getting looser…

Health conditions were turning around…

They were sleeping better…

I was floored!  And humbled! And THRILLED!!

When the pilot program ended, most of the participants wanted to continue on. It was a decision point.

Deb and I knew we were on to something, so we decided to create two new programs:

  1. A 30-day Fundamentals program that focuses on 4 pillars of health and wellness as well as key mindset issues related to weight and illness,  and
  2. An ongoing month-to-month Advanced program that builds on the fundamentals program.

Our Advanced program is going strong and our first Fundamentals program finished up in mid-February. Again, it was terrific!

Now, our next round of UnREALogical Health Fundamentals is kicking off on March 12th and I’m inviting everyone to check it out.

It’s better than I ever imagined and I’m really very proud of it.
