Cancer can be a very difficult thing to face alone. You not only have to deal with the physical and emotional challenges that come with the disease, but also the financial and practical ones. It can be overwhelming, to say the least.

But it doesn’t have to be. There is help available, and it comes in the form of a cancer lifestyle coach.

A cancer lifestyle coach is a professional who helps cancer patients improve their quality of life by making lifestyle changes. These changes can be on any number of fronts, from diet and nutrition to exercise and stress management.

The goal of a cancer lifestyle coach is to help you improve your overall health and well-being so that you can live a better life, despite your diagnosis.

If you’re looking for someone to help you navigate the challenges of cancer, a cancer lifestyle coach is a great place to start.

A cancer lifestyle coach will provide guidance, support, and education about lifestyle changes that can help the patient achieve better health. They will also help develop realistic goals for the patient to work towards and provide assistance in designing a comprehensive plan to reach these goals.

Formal Consultation and Blueprint

You’re super serious about your health goals and are eager to see results soon! Perfect!
A formal consultation is the first step in this process.

If you sign up for a formal consultation, you will receive a detailed questionnaire to fill out which I use to create a customised nutrition plan or formalised blueprint for you to follow.

I analyse your answers and the metrics you’ve recorded to define goals, calories, energy balance, macronutrients, deficits and surplus. I look at micro level detailing of your eating habits and patterns and suggest foods to add or delete based on your preferences, via a formalised blueprint.

The Blueprint will also include suggestions for eating frequency, windows and patterns. It will suggest pre and post workout nutrition options and recommend supplementation based on any deficits that show up in your questionnaire. Styles and frequency of training are also recommended.

The goal is to create a sustainable short and long term strategy to ensure you’re always in optimal health.

After creating the blueprint, a consultation call is arranged during which we go through the blueprint together. I explain macros and the role of hormones in overall health and take care of any comments, concerns or questions you may have. Once we’re aligned on the route forward, the Blueprint is sent to you.

This Blueprint will serve as the guide through your transformation journey.
