Philosophy

kate-deering-fitnessSince Kate’s start in the health and fitness industry over 20 years ago, her ideas and practices have evolved dramatically. Once a believer that one must workout more and eat less to get healthy, she now believes quite differently. In fact, for some to achieve health, they need to do quite the opposite.

As we get older, we are led to believe there is a natural aging effect. With age, we wrinkle more, we gain more fat, we lose muscle, our posture deteriorates, our bones get weak, our energy diminishes, our metabolism slows down, we feel colder, our skin gets dry, our joints hurt, our sleep becomes restless, our digestion is irregular, and our sex drive goes in the toilet. Augh. Doesn’t aging sound fun?

Kate believes, along with numerous other researchers, that aging is based more on how we live our life vs. the years we are on this planet. Meaning, we can slow down and even reverse much of the aging process if we understand how to exercise properly, eat supportively, reduce stress, live with purpose, love, and appreciate the life we
are given.

True health is established with an understanding of what things increase metabolic function and what things decrease it. A high metabolism is linked to youth. A high metabolism is linked to a lack of disease. A high metabolism is linked to good sleep, a healthy sex drive, healthy skin and hair, a lean body, and overall happiness.

Kate’s methods in nutrition, exercise and mind-set are designed to help you live longer, increase metabolism and decrease injury and illness. Backed by the teachings of Paul Chek, Dr. Ray Peat, Dr. Broda Barnes, Dr. Mark Starr, Dr. Hans Seyle, Dr. Constance Martin, Dr. Weston A. Price, Josh Rubin and many others, Kate has developed
a nutritional coaching program that can help you gain back your health and increase your vitality.

Aging does not have to be a miserable process. It can be a journey of getting to know your body better, understanding your physiology and anatomy so that you can keep your body fit and healthy for its next adventure.

When I tell people that weight loss may be the last thing that happens when trying to heal their body, I get a lot of unhappy faces...

Healthy weight loss needs to occur in a healthy body, so health needs to be established first. You may still lose weight, due to a reduction in overall inflammation, but fat loss usually takes some time.

Their response: " What if I lose weight, by dieting, first and then try to heal the body?"

Me: Trying to lose weight in a body that is already "broken", is like trying to build a house on a foundation that is cracked. It makes far more sense to fix the foundation--FIRST. Building a house on a cracked foundation would only add to the cracks, which would lead to even more issues and a harder time in fixing the foundation. The same is true with your metabolism.

Trying to lose weight, via dieting--eating less than your body is burning, in a body that is unhealthy creates more stress upon the body. For your body to heal, we need to get it out of stress, not cause more stress. We need to nourish and provide enough energy to give the systems of your body time and space to heal. Healthy sugars, enough protein, vitamins and minerals, rest, quality sleep, sun, proper breathing, time and patiences are all essential for healing. Eating low calorie or low carb are antagonistic to healing.

My advise: Take the time to heal. STOP focusing on the end result--weight loss. Instead focus on the journey, the day to day--eating the right foods, in the correct ratios and frequencies throughout out the day. The little shifts you do each day are going to make up the big shifts that get your body healthy and help support you in long term weight loss.

Focusing on weight loss is going to make you not only crazy, but will encourage you to make poor quick weight loss choices that may help with short term weight loss but never long term success.

Bottom line: Build a STRONG Foundation!
