Ep.16 – Before Putting A Client On A Meal Plan – DO THIS!


Does this sound familiar: Your client is training hard and seems to be following their meal plan pretty well.

… but they have a tire of fat around the belly that won’t seem to budge. ⁣

This client always comes in with a coffee, has a stressful job, kids, and often talks about feeling tired. ⁣

It’s time to take a look at their sleep habits. ⁣

Sleep is probably the most overlooked aspect when it comes to trainers and their clients. ⁣

But it plays an ENORMOUSLY critical role when it comes to health and the ability to lose weight and lose fat. ⁣

If your client feels tired, but their mind won’t turn off, they are most likely GABA deficient. 9 times out of 10, when a client struggles to fall asleep at night – they are GABA deficient. ⁣

GABA is a neurotransmitter naturally produced by our bodies, and it’s responsibility is sending calming messages from the brain to the nervous system. ⁣

Again… we can’t stress this enough … FAT LOSS WILL NOT HAPPEN until your client is getting consistent, quality sleeps. This means falling asleep quickly (ideally much before 11pm) and staying asleep all night long. ⁣

Some things that you can start recommending to help improve sleep: ⁣

• no caffeine / stimulant drinks after 1 pm (caffeine can stay in the body longer than 6 hours)

• turning off electronics an hour before bed and getting them out of the bedroom

• implement a consistent wind-down routine that helps with your brain’s “it’s time to calm down” signalling. A consistent bed time hour and routine, as well as a consistent wake up time, will help.⁣

• recommend 2 or 3 magnesium; 2 during dinner and 1 with tea or small snack around 7 pm ⁣(this may have to be adjusted).

• finish the last meal/snack before 7:30 ⁣

We teach our Transformation Mentorship students how to assess for GABA, as well as other neurotransmitters and hormones that have key affects on health and fat loss. ⁣
