Reach your goals with Lisa G

The first step towards reaching your personal goal

 

What are your goals? Feeling body confident in front of the camera? Looking the part on the beach? Running a 5 km without stopping? Whatever your personal goal or starting point, I can work with you to develop a personalised programme. Research shows you're more likely to achieve your goals when you do it with others.*

One of the first things you'll do with me is complete a personal Evaluation. Together we will review your nutrition habits and take body composition measurements. This provides a good starting point to create a personalised programme and begin monitoring your progress. You may also be invited to a group presentation focused on good nutrition where you could also enrol in weekly events, such as a Fit Club or body Challenges. It's at these events where you'll meet with other like-minded people. is about getting together as community and helping each other lead a healthier, more active life. After all, results always seem easier to achieve (and are more fun) when you do it with others.

 

Nutrition Philosophy

 

Nutrition Philosophy is based on three factors which can help you achieve your personal best. Through balanced nutrition, living a healthy active life within a community and having on-going personal support from your Wellness Coach, millions of customers have transformed their body and achieved their goals.

I believe a Balanced Nutrition is founded on consuming a healthy mix of protein, carbohydrates, beneficial fats and other nutrients, this will help you to understand the basics of a good diet and when science-based suppliment products may also be useful. We believe that living a healthy active lifestyle within a community of like-minded people is important for long lasting results - regardless of your ability level or goal.


 

Balanced nutrition

 

In order to look and feel your best, your body needs a complex blend of nutrients. Not only do you need the right proteins, carbohydrates, fats, vitamins and minerals, you also need adequate fluids to stay hydrated and a good dose of fibre, too. That’s a tall order, and even the most careful eater can be hard-pressed to meet each nutrient target every day, that’s why Nutrition Philosophy is based on balanced nutrition — a combination of healthy foods and supplements that help you meet your daily needs, coupled with the right calorie balance to help you lose, gain or maintain your body weight.

The Nutrition Philosophy suggests that up to 30% of your daily calorie intake comes from protein, which can include protein sourced from plants (e.g. soy beans) or animals (e.g. poultry, fish, eggs). The body uses protein to manufacture important molecules in the body, such as hormones and enzymes, and to build and maintain muscle tissue.

As the body’s preferred fuel source is carbohydrates, the Nutrition Philosophy recommends that you get about 40% of your daily calories from healthy carbohydrates such as whole grains, beans, vegetables and fruits.

Your body requires small amounts of healthy fats in order to function properly, with good sources including oily fish (for Omega 3), nuts, olive oil and avocados. But beware - fats are a very concentrated source of calories, which is why the Nutrition Philosophy advises limiting your fat intake to no more than 30% of your daily calorie intake.

Regular exercise, adequate rest and keeping yourself hydrated is also part of the Nutrition Philosophy, and are very important for helping you reach your health and fitness goals.

Keeping Your Defences Up

As the weather turns colder you’re more likely to suffer from coughs and colds so now is a good time to look at all you can do nutritionally to help keep your immune system running in tip-top shape.


Your body has a built-in defence in the form of your immune system.  In order to keep your defences up your body relies on good nutrition and a healthy lifestyle.

A balanced diet is a great start as many nutrients are involved in supporting the immune system.  Fruits and vegetables are key players because they provide a variety of vitamins and minerals such as Vitamin C, Vitamin A and Zinc which contribute to the maintenance of healthy immune function.


Your body relies on a steady source of vitamins,  particularly Vitamin C from fruits and vegetables to protect cells from oxidative stress and to help support immune function. Your immune system also has some ‘special forces’ in the form of white blood cells. These cells produce specialised proteins – called antibodies – that seek out and destroy invading viruses and bacteria. Since antibodies are proteins, you need adequate protein in the diet to ensure you’ll be able to manufacture the antibodies your body needs.


Healthy protein foods – like fish, poultry, lean meats, soy foods and low fat dairy products – provide the building blocks that your body needs to make these specialised proteins as well as important vitamins and minerals such as B2, B12, Zinc and copper which contribute to normal immune function.

Eating well really does pave the road to good health. And to help your body in the fight against foreign invaders, your internal ‘army’ needs the best nutrition possible.

Your immune system protects your health 24 hours a day


Too much stress, a poor diet or too little sleep can compromise your immune system. Immune Health helps support your natural defenses year-round
