I wanted a healthy, flexible, easy weight loss plan that would apply to my everyday life forever. I'm grateful that I found OnPoint, which offers an array of choices within the various food groups. The nutritionist you're assigned determines the number of daily servings from each group you can have. You eat 3 meals plus snacks, so your energy level feels consistent. After a while, the program becomes second nature. In my case, though my lifestyle is sedentary, the plan enabled me to lose weight -- around 30 pounds so far, approaching my goal -- and feel much more sane about food. Subsequently, my husband joined the program and has lost about the same amount so far. As you make your choices, you find what works best for you. For instance, for me, though pancakes and nuts are permitted, I do better when I steer clear of them. And foods that aren't on the list can be added using a formula. (Trader Joe's breakfast patties are a mainstay for us.) OnPoint offers bars that sound delicious and can be incorporated into your program. I opted not to use them, as I wanted to focus on mainstream foods. My husband is using them. I didn't think I'd like keeping a food log, but I actually look forward to noting what I've eaten and seeing what choices I have left to eat that day. The logs, saved in Dropbox, also allow your nutritionist to see the choices you're making and give you helpful observations. I like OnPoint's convenient accent on technology. Skyping with the nutritionist instead of physically going to an office is great, as is knowing that if I have any questions in between our sessions I can email her. The program is not cheap, and you need to commit for a period of time. It was absolutely worth it to me, since good health and feeling good about yourself are invaluable and I wanted to end the power food had over me. Moreover, if your first instinct is to quit after a week and go crazy eating again, knowing you've committed financially is a good initial leash until you get settled into the plan. It's an excellent investment.
I had been very healthy and eating a healthy diet for over 30 years. Prior to that I was diagnosed with lupus in my early 20's and treated successfully. Only pregnancy seemed to bring on a flare-up. So after giving birth to my son in 1984 I was very healthy. I am not sure what happened and neither does any doctor I saw but I had numerous and different "gut issues, I lost 25-30- lbs. I did not like or want food (which was not me) and I was so low on energy and I was always very active and high energy. So when my daughter kept suggesting I see a dietician/nutritionist I finally agreed never thinking I would need one since I had always been a healthy eater! Dana was the one person that helped me on a path to where I am today. I saw MANY doctors and was put on many medications which I would rather be able to help myself in natural ways! Eventually I was diagnosed with collagenous colitis which was right before I saw Dana and once that was cleared up and I followed Dana's path for me (which was a slower one , but I realized the only way to get well again) I did continue to improve and I have gained half the weigh back which I am good with. I still have not put all the things back in my diet that I had to eliminate yet, but I am slowly doing it. Dana looked at me the whole person and figured out what was my path. I am very grateful for her guidance and expertise!
I have been training with Winston for about 3 months now. Previously I was going to a dietician for several months without only 10lbs lost. Since working out with Winston I have lost almost 30lbs and gained a lot more in self confidence. I have Been able to ger my nutrition under control, something my dietician and I wasn't able to do before. I am very grateful and happy. Thank you winfit.
