Winter 2018 Progress Pictures

Standard

780+ pounds gone and over 100 lives changed.

And this happened in 12 Weeks. The knowledge and habits developed during these past 12 weeks will carry them onward to week 13 and beyond! We created Clean Kitchen Challenge not as a weight-loss program, but more as a lifestyle program. Our goal is not for our clients to “lose the most weight.” Our goal is for our clients to develop skills and strategies to help them make healthy eating and choices a lifestyle that will carry them much longer than just a short 12 weeks. Congrats to everyone. Your coaches are so proud of all the progress you have made, including the non-scale victories!

Below are a handful of clients who turned in progress pictures for the progress picture vote of “most visual change.” The voting is anonymous, as are the client pictures! The picture with the most votes wins $1000 CASH!!

Are you ready for a change? Check out details on our upcoming 12 Week Challenge!

Fall 2017 Progress Photos

SIGN UP HERE for the Clean Kitchen 12 Week Challenge

The numbers and pictures are impressive. But even more impressive is the life changed behind these pictures and numbers! And the way we change people is slowly. In the Clean Kitchen challenge we slowly teach habits, strategies, and re-train their brains to think outside of gimmick diets and super complicated meal plans. We don’t count macros, we teach people to prepare and eat FOOD. We coach people into a better relationship with food and their body. It is hard to put in words what we “do,” but one fact is our clients leave the challenge prepared, confident, a little lighter, and ready to really live life!

Twenty-seven clients sent in progress pictures. In these pictures below you are seeing

427.4 pounds LOST and 412.5 inches GONE!

But those that only sent in measurements and weight added to that number in a BIG way.

Fall 2017 Challenge Totals:

865.2 pounds LOST and 679.6 inches GONE!

And that is not even everyone included! 

Find out how you can sign up for the next Clean Kitchen 12 Week Challenge starting soon!

T1D + CK

Standard

By Heather Williams

I’ve been a Type-1 Diabetic going on 15 years.

Living with T1D is a full-time balancing act requiring constant attention to avoid acute, life-threatening hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) or the long-term damage done by hyperglycemia (high blood sugar). Blood sugar levels must be monitored with finger pricks throughout the day and night. Insulin doses must then be carefully calculated based upon activity and stress levels, food intake, illness and additional factors. These calculations are rarely perfect resulting in tremendous ups and downs and mental exhaustion.

People with Type 1 have a life expectancy that is 12 years shorter, on average, than that of the average population. I refuse to accept this statistic and will do everything that is within my control to live a long, active and healthy life. This is why I signed up for the Clean Kitchen 12 week Challenge.

With weight gain from medications and it being a constant battle to stay in good control, I wanted to see if Clean Kitchen could help with my eating habits, which in return would help my blood sugar levels.

My fasting blood sugar was a little high on Day 1 of Clean Kitchen. But after 12 weeks in Clean Kitchen my basal insulin was reduced by 45%, my bolus insulin reduced to 0.5-1, and lowered Hg a1C by 0.3.

I could not be happier with the results. I feel better, have great energy, slept better, and lost extra weight I had picked up. But the biggest difference Clean Kitchen made was in my diabetes. And for that I will be forever thankful. I lowered my hemoglobin a1c from 6.8 to 6.5 (which is awesome), and I did it while reducing my basal insulin consumption by 45% and drastically reducing my bolus insulin for food intake!

I lost 10 pounds and 16 inches from my body!

Thank you Coach Anna, Coach Stephanie, and to everyone at Clean Kitchen for helping me make this possible and help me feel in control of my T1D!

 

It’s about practice, not perfection.

For me, the Clean Kitchen Challenge was a desperate attempt to find something that was missing in my life. You see, although I am a successful and happy adult, my day-to-day life was chaotic. I would awake before 5 am to commute 1.5 hours to work. I never ate breakfast, worked through lunch, and would commute home to gorge myself until I crashed into bed every night. I was tired all the time; I had been diagnosed with IBS (a default diagnosis after the doctor could find no medical reason for my painful symptoms); my weight was ballooning; I had zero stamina; and I was losing my happiness.

I felt I had control over nothing.

The Big Picture: “Don’t be psycho”

Standard

Have you ever been so wrapped up in the small details, that you forget about the big picture? You end up obsessing over things like, whether or not you ate carbs post-workout or not. Did you eat enough grams of protein? Too much fat? Or you even feel guilty you ate pizza and it wasn’t “on a workout day.”

Complexity is the silent killer of progress.

Think of it as “mowing the lawn while your house is on fire.”

Hand Size Portion Control

Standard

In Clean Kitchen, we do not count calories. Because when people eat, we are not looking at our plate knowing exactly how many “calories” we are eating. We eat portions of food, not counted out macronutrients. No calculators, no adding up your macros. Just simply use you hand size as your guide to portion control.

You can’t “out-work” a bad diet

Standard

By Stephanie Pierce, CK Fall 2016

I joined a Versus Boot Camp class in March 2016. I really enjoyed working out with the group. But as time went on I was frustrated. I was always one of the last to finish in the workouts and I couldn’t understand why my body wasn’t changing. I was working out like a maniac without much to show for it. In boot camp we learn some basic information about nutrition, but I would always say, “I love Versus but I’m not giving up the foods I love.” I am a confessed sugar addict. A few friends had done the Clean Kitchen 12 Week Challenge so I was intrigued but still not convinced I could do it.

My “why” may be different from yours…

Standard

By Mary Godbold, CK Fall 2016

I always said I would never do Clean Kitchen. I wasn’t gaining weight from the food I ate, so I didn’t see the point. (Many of you may roll your eyes at that or hate me for it, but don’t give up on me yet.)

I was thoroughly enjoying ice cream 4 nights a week, other desserts whenever I wanted them and a huge bowl of plain spaghetti noodles as an afternoon snack almost every day. But then for some reason, that I didn’t know at the time, I signed up for the Clean Kitchen 12 Week Challenge. Many of my friends asked me, “Why are you doing this?” and “What’s the point? You don’t need to lose weight.”
