TrestleTree Health Coaches partner with their participants to set goals encompassing their health and life stories along with applicable guideline recommendations. The guidelines set the bar for achievement and the unique stories of the participant help us navigate the path to get there. Today's #StoryOfSuccess validates why both components are important to achieve a healthier way of living.
This participant started TrestleTree health coaching to improve her eating habits. Her Health Coach highlighted that her meals could be portioned differently, so they created a plan to address this. Her Health Coach suggested ways that she could increase her vegetable portions to ½ of her meal and decrease the meat and grain portions to ¼ of her meal each, consistent with dietary guidelines. They also focused on other areas of her health she could improve, such as exercise. Since beginning the program, she lost several pounds and is confident in maintaining her plan for a healthier lifestyle.
