"Hi, I'm Varun! I am an Precision Nutrition (Pn1) Nutrition Coach and an INFS certified nutrition and fitness expert. To me, poor nutrition and fitness is not you being lazy, nor is it you being ignorant. It's just you doing the best you can in the crazy world that we live in. Poor nutrition choices are just short term coping mechanism for all the 100 other stressors we experience day to day!
Yeah, your numbers matter, but what matters more is your persona, your job, your environment, your friends and family, perhaps even your pet. Which is why I try to integrate the changes you need to make by analyzing not just your food and exercise (or lack of exercise) but by looking at you as who you are, a unique individual.
Change is always difficult and scary which is why by taking small steps on a day to day basis we make sure that at any time we only change a little, but over a year, it becomes huge. That's the approach I take, focusing of taking small actions everyday which you are ready, willing and able to do.
I've lost over 20kgs and done a lot of mistakes along the way, eating too less, too much cardio, too much working out, eating too healthy (yes, there is such a thing), binge eating as a result of eating too healthy, you name it, I've probably experienced it. But now I know what was missing at each of my failures, and that often that boiled down to sustainability, a balance between my goals, timelines and priorities. And with you, I'd strive for that same balance as we take baby steps to a healthier version of you."
