Coach Lesslee here!
I am passionate about helping both men and women who struggle with their weight and overall health achieve a healthier body, lifestyle, and relationship with food and exercise.
Having struggled with sugar addiction, binge eating, and later autoimmune disease and cancer, I know first hand how it feels like to be out of sync with my health and eating.
I understand that there isn't a one-size-fits-all program. I had to find new ways to help myself through my own journey and in the process, I developed a healthy relationship with food and fitness that I want to share this with you!
I understand what it feels like to be out of balance and finding comfort in fast food and then trying to "outrun" my fork with endless cardio! For years I tried to fix my body; a body that never needed fixing. What I learned (the hard way) was that dieting not only doesn't work, it can backfire and make everything worse.
After addressing my own issues with sugar and processed foods, I found balance in my life, not only with food but within myself. At 63 years old, I am strong and healthy and I achieved this all without yo-yo diets, sugar crashes, and endless cardio.
This can be especially hard for middle-aged women(and men) after 40 and 50 years old, when our hormones and bodies drastically change and require a different approach. The time just before, during and after menopause can wreak havoc on a woman's body and men are not immune to this. While menopause affects women, men over 40-50 years old too struggle with hormonal changes related to testosterone which can make loosing weight and gaining muscle a challenge.
