Coach Joyce’s Weight Loss Tips. Warning! Brutal Honesty!

Coach Joyce’s Weight Loss Tips for Today:
1. Fruits are not vegetables. Eat vegetables and lots of them.
2. The roots you pull from the ground, skip them for now. They are sugar.
3. Mashed potatoes = hot ice cream. Skip it.
4. Fruit juices = flat soda. Skip it.
5. Gatorade and Sports Drinks = fruit juice = flat soda. Skip it.
6. Fruits = sugar. Skip them for now.
7. Bread = gluten = sugar = sugar addict = Skip it.
8. Cereal = bread = pasta = sugar = Skip it.
9. Eat protein, just enough.
10. Eggs don’t raise your cholesterol. Sugar raises your cholesterol.
11. Peas are not vegetables. They are legumes and full of sugar. Skip them.
12. Corn is not a vegetable. It’s sugar. Skip it.
13. Vegetable oils have no vegetables in them. There is no such think as a canola plant. It’s toxic rapeseed oil and inflammatory. Skip it.
14. Dairy = lactose = sugar = inflammatory to many. Skip it.
15. How do you get your calcium? See #1.
16. Can I drink almond milk? Why? It has little nutritional value.
17. How do I use coconut oil? Try cooking with it.
18. Don’t eat margerine, ever. Eat grass fed Butter #KerryGold
19. But I thought _____ was good for me? You were lied to.
20. I will die if I can’t eat pizza, pasta and bread. No you will be chronically ill and live a life on prescription medications and function marginally and then die if you do eat those things.
21. Everything in moderation. What? You’re saying you want moderate health (aka chronic illness)? Me, I want to thrive and have optimal health.
22. When I said eat the rainbow I did not mean Skittles (you know who I’m talking to.)

Coach Joyce is Reading Deep Nutrition by Catherine Shanahan

A self-published phenomenon examining the habits that kept our ancestors disease-free?now with a prescriptive plan for “The Human Diet” to help us all live long, vital, healthy lives.

Physician and biochemist Cate Shanahan, M.D. examined diets around the world known to help people live longer, healthier lives?diets like the Mediterranean, Okinawa, and “Blue Zone”?and identified the four common nutritional habits, developed over millennia, that unfailingly produce strong, healthy, intelligent children, and active, vital elders, generation after generation. These four nutritional strategies?fresh food, fermented and sprouted foods, meat cooked on the bone, and organ meats?form the basis of what Dr. Cate calls “The Human Diet.”

Rooted in her experience as an elite athlete who used traditional foods to cure her own debilitating injuries, and combining her research with the latest discoveries in the field of epigenetics, Dr. Cate shows how all calories are not created equal; food is information that directs our cellular growth. Our family history does not determine our destiny: what you eat and how you live can alter your DNA in ways that affect your health and the health of your future children.

Deep Nutrition offers a prescriptive plan for how anyone can begin eating The Human Diet to:

*Improve mood
*Eliminate cravings and the need to snack
*Boost fertility and have healthier children
*Sharpen cognition and memory
*Eliminate allergies and disease
*Build stronger bones and joints
*Get younger, smoother skin

Deep Nutrition cuts through today’s culture of conflicting nutritional ideologies, showing how the habits of our ancestors can help us lead longer, healthier, more vital lives.

Coach Joyce is Reading The Obesity Code by Jason Fung, MD

Fung zeroes in on why insulin resistance has become so prevalent and offers specific outside-the-box solutions that have emerged as the key to maximizing health.”
—Jimmy Moore, author, Keto Clarity and Cholesterol Clarity

Everything you believe about how to lose weight is wrong. Weight gain and obesity are driven by hormones—in everyone—and only by understanding the effects of insulin and insulin resistance can we achieve lasting weight loss.

In this highly readable and provocative book, Dr. Jason Fung sets out an original, robust theory of obesity that provides startling insights into proper nutrition. In addition to his five basic steps, a set of lifelong habits that will improve your health and control your insulin levels, Dr. Fung explains how to use intermittent fasting to break the cycle of insulin resistance and reach a healthy weight—for good.

The Case Against Sugar

From the best-selling author of Why We Get Fat, a groundbreaking, eye-opening exposé that makes the convincing case that sugar is the tobacco of the new millennium: backed by powerful lobbies, entrenched in our lives, and making us very sick.

Among Americans, diabetes is more prevalent today than ever; obesity is at epidemic proportions; nearly 10% of children are thought to have nonalcoholic fatty liver disease. And sugar is at the root of these, and other, critical society-wide, health-related problems. With his signature command of both science and straight talk, Gary Taubes delves into Americans’ history with sugar: its uses as a preservative, as an additive in cigarettes, the contemporary overuse of high-fructose corn syrup. He explains what research has shown about our addiction to sweets. He clarifies the arguments against sugar, corrects misconceptions about the relationship between sugar and weight loss; and provides the perspective necessary to make informed decisions about sugar as individuals and as a society.

Coach Joyce is Reading The Grain Brain Whole Life Plan

Make Coach Joyce Your Choice!

Make Coach Joyce Your Choice!

Health and wellness is not just a job for Joyce Strong, RN, BSN.  It is her passion and way of life. She leads by example, devoting her time to helping others find a clear path to optimal health.

It wasn’t always that way for “Coach Joyce”, the name given to her by her five children and hockey players who train with her in her hockey program, Strong Dynamics Hockey Skating and Agility Training.  In 2004, Coach Joyce was diagnosed with breast cancer which she calls her wake-up call.  So, what does a single parent of 5 children do when she’s diagnosed with cancer?  She develops a passion and appreciation for life, learns to coach, play and TEACH hockey skating, achieves her Level 5 USA Hockey Coaching credentials and starts a private Health and Wellness Nursing practice.   Fast forward 12 years to where you will find Coach Joyce, RN Health Coach and owner of Ideal Weight-Total Well Coach where she preaches what she practices.

Whole foods are at the core of Coach Joyce’s nutritional recommendations.   It is what you do eat and drink AND what you learn to avoid as you get to know how your own body works.  Stabilize your life-style to include sleep, recreation, community, stress management and whole food.  Step one is to assess where you are at now.  Step two is to heal the damage and build a healthy lifestyle.  Then and forever more, thrive and enjoy life with optimal health.

One of Coach Joyce’s greatest joys is to be on the same team with her patients as they build a better lifestyle.  Patients have come to Coach Joyce with elevated triglyceride and cholesterol, blood sugar out of control and heartburn, all of which required prescription medications, and within a few weeks or months found themselves with normal labs value, off medications, losing weight and feeling better than ever.  It seems like a miracle.  The doctors ask, “What did you do?”  The answer, time and again, is simple.  Understand how your body works.  Eat this, don’t eat that.  Drink water.  Sleep.  Exercise.  Find a way to reduce your stress.  Believe.  Coach Joyce’s confidence in her patients is always greater than their doubt and so… they succeed.

Coach Joyce sees health and wellness within a holistic, functional, integrative frame.   While many health care practitioners focus on keeping you out of the hospital and functioning at a chronically low-level with pills for ills, Coach Joyce focuses on helping you find your OPTIMAL health and wellness.  She asks, “Why settle for good enough health?  Why not aim for feeling terrific and functioning the best you’ve ever functioned in your life?”

Authorized Provider for Ideal Protein Weight Loss protocol, Coach Joyce offers this medically supervised weight-loss program at her locations in Groton, Pepperell, Concord and Nashua.  No matter where you live, you’ll want to drive the extra few miles to meet face-to-face with the best Coach born for the profession that marries her natural talents and passions of cheerleading, teaching, health science and athletics. She works 7 days a week and offers appointments at hours to meet the needs of her patients, days, evenings and weekends all by appointment.

You can see Coach Joyce for general nutritional and wellness coaching, consultation and follow-up for personalized nutritional plans and supplement recommendations using doctor-brand supplements including Metagenics, Xymogen, Standard Process, Designs for Health and more.  She also offers some lab testing including food sensitivity tests from Cell Sciences and Cyrex and Orig3n nutritional genetic DNA testing.
