Sarah had been putting on a few pounds and she wanted to lose weight. She read about Health Trainers in the local library, gave them a call and arranged to meet up.
Sarah told the health trainer what she did day to day, what she enjoyed doing, what she was eating, why it was difficult to go on a diet and so on. Sarah felt that the Health Trainer was someone who really understood the problems she faced; she kept a diary showing what she did and what she ate and showed it to the Health Trainer next time they got together.
Sarah was skipping breakfast and lunch; she had a large meal in the evening and kept snacking at night; she felt there just wasn’t time to eat properly earlier in the day because she was working extra hours to make ends meet - top of her ‘to do’ list was a large and unexpected electricity bill which had to be paid!
It was good to talk things through with someone she could trust. Sarah decided on a new food plan which was specially designed to help her lose weight and keep up energy levels to meet her busy schedule.
The Health Trainer also put Sarah in contact with an energy advisor who was able to advise her how to manage the payment of the outstanding electricity bill, save energy and generally get back on track.
Sarah is losing between 1 and 2 lbs most weeks and feels generally fitter and stronger. She eats a healthy diet each day with more energy and feels less stressed. She has also managed to pay off that big electricity bill.
