In fact just this weekend, a colleague was asking me about my experience with Blue Sky MD. After I briefly explained the program to him, he looked at me quizzically.
As someone who is into health and fitness himself, he simply replied “There’s no secret to it.”
To which I exclaimed, “I know! That’s the beauty of it!”
For all the years I have been searching on ways to get healthy and lose weight, there has always been a gimmick. Whether you have to eat their food or put yourself on some kind of extreme regimen, I never felt comfortable with any of them.
It wasn’t until I started talking to the people of Blue Sky MD and learning about the process that I was sold. The thing that hooks me, and continues to keep me going, is their education.
As a former professional tennis player, and someone who has actually taught fitness classes, I thought I knew a thing or two about nutrition. And while I would not discount all of my knowledge, there were many things I had to relearn about how the food you eat affects your metabolism and weight.
instance, I used to start my day with more carbs at breakfast than I should consume in an entire day.They were all things that I deemed healthy, like honey, dried fruit, cereal and Greek yogurt, but that should not have given me license to consume as much of them as I wanted.
Of course, it wasn’t until I started keeping a food journal that not only counted calories, but also protein and carbs, when I realized that my intake was out of whack. That, and having the ability to not only meet with a nurse and/or nutritionist each week, but also to be able to call at any moment with any questions I’m having has been invaluable to me.
There is a lot to be said for combining a tried and true method with a team of people who are not only experts but…people! Yes, they are people like me who (many of them) have been what I’m going through and feel what I feel! It’s kind of like what I’ve always said about shopping retail: there are a lot of places I could spend my money where the goods they sell are equivalent, but I’m going to go where I’m most appreciated.
You will be appreciated at Blue Sky MD….period.
