Baltimore Health Coach Lucas Seipp-Williams helps busy people create all-day energy, achieve ideal weight, and resolve health issues. His clients learn how to quickly cook healthy, delicious meals. Seipp-Williams explains that healthy habits stick because the focus is on making nutritious food even more delicious and satisfying than the convenience foods that degrade optimal health.
Baltimore Health Coach provides several programs, including individual coaching, a 7 Day Sugar Detox, classes, and a 10 Week All-Day Energy Program:
The individual program is a four-month program in which clients learn to master quick and tasty preparation of 15-Minute Meals. The key to clients success is the habit of pre-prepping each food group (ex. dark leafy greens) so that it can be quickly incorporated into a variety of dishes throughout the week; a new food group in introduced every two weeks. Seipp-Willams explains that once people are in a rhythm with one food group, it typically sticks as a staple in their diet moving forward. There is no restriction, so participants don't expend energy fighting cravings or "being good."
The 7 Day Sugar Detox is often used to jump start metabolism. It consists of one week free from processed food, dairy, caffeine, sugar, and alcohol. The Detox is sometimes advocated prior to the start of the four month program. Clients who are carrying extra pounds typically lose five pounds during the week.
The 10 Week Program is very similar to the individual coaching program, except in a group setting with one-week intervals between goals. For each new food group, meal plans, shopping lists, recipes, and cooking demonstrations are given. Each week also focuses on a new set of cultural seasonings. A sample French meal includes French vegetable soup with pesto, a lentil salad with Dijon dressing, quinoa, and chopped sausage.
Seipp-Williams notes that vegetables are a staple and can be chopped, diced, and fully prepped to throw into any meal. Even a novice cook who isn't ready for a full-on healthy diet can begin to make improvements. For example, vegetables tossed onto an ordered pizza will make it healthier. He said that the biggest mistake people make is feeling guilty or stressed about food choices.
