How is Venice Nutrition different from other programs available?
Venice Nutrition teaches you how to achieve permanent results by implementing a nutrition and fitness system centered on, your lifestyle, your goals and the powerful science of blood sugar stabilization. You will be educated on how your body works and then learn the tools on how to make your body work for you!
While other programs create a cycle where you lose weight and then gain it back time and again, we will teach you how to keep it off permanently, all while feeling great and enjoying the foods you love.
Venice Nutrition offers you so much more than just a meal plan. Your nutrition is very important and it is only one part of a healthy lifestyle. As a member of Venice Nutrition, you will receive a Customized Health Structure created according to your goals, your lifestyle and your food preferences.
Your personal Health Structure includes Customized Meal Plans based on the foods you like to eat, the most efficient fat blasting Cardiovascular Exercise Routines, and even the important "extras" that have a huge impact on your results including Water, Sleep and Supplement recommendations!
You will have access to our delicious recipe database, the national forum to share motivation and tips for success with fellow members, e-newsletters with cutting edge info from the top nutrition and fitness experts in the industry, and so much more. Your membership also includes 24 hour support with our team of Certified Venice Nutrition Coaches. At Venice Nutrition we don't believe in "dieting". We provide you with a science based program to fit into your lifestyle, and the education, tools and support that you need to succeed!
Will Venice Nutrition work for me?
Venice Nutrition is designed to work for people of all ages, backgrounds and lifestyles! Whether you are recovering from years of yo-yo dieting, an athlete looking for "the edge", trying to lose those last 20 pounds of body fat, or just looking for a permanent way to eat well and be healthy as you age, Venice Nutrition will work for you. How? Our system is based on the powerful science of blood sugar stabilization.
From birth to adulthood, our bodies require stable blood sugar to function optimally. Blood sugar affects each of us every day. For example, a child who "crashes" and can't concentrate after lunch during the school day is experiencing low blood sugar. An adult who craves caffeine and sugar and has the urge to overeat late afternoon is also struggling with unstable blood sugar. An athlete who runs out of fuel mid-performance is having blood sugar challenges too.
It's amazing how unstable blood has such a negative effect on us; extreme hunger, headaches, mood swings, lack of concentration, weight gain, sugar cravings, increased risk of diabetes and low energy to name a few.
Imagine that you have the power to have unlimited energy, your ideal physique, excellent concentration, optimal health and no sugar cravings simply by stabilizing your blood sugar!
Thousands of people from all walks of life have used our system for success! If you are committed to your goals, have a true investment in yourself and want to achieve permanent results, Venice Nutrition is for you.
What is the difference between the online program and the consulting programs?
At Venice Nutrition, we know that one size does not fit all and that is why we offer two different ways for you to become a member and succeed. You have the option of enrolling in an individual Consulting Program to work one on one with Monica and Joanne or you may choose to join Venice Nutrition and implement your program independently.
One on one consulting programs are a "hands on" approach to achieving your goals and ideal for those who prefer working with a professional for personal support, motivation and coaching. Our consulting programs range from one month to six months depending on your individual goals, needs and lifestyle. All consulting packages are held in a private setting at a nutrition office or over the phone and include a 30 Day complimentary membership to Venice Nutrition. For details, please see Consulting Programs.
Venice Nutrition is a virtual nutrition and fitness system that can be conveniently accessed from anywhere on the web and is ideal for anyone who wishes to work independently (without a personal nutrition coach) to reach their goals. By providing you with an online nutrition and fitness assessment along with a food preference list, Venice Nutrition is able to evaluate your unique goals, lifestyle and needs and create your personalized health structure. As a member of Venice Nutrition, you will receive 24 hour email support with our team of nutrition and fitness coaches, as well as complete access to our Forum to communicate with fellow members nationwide. For more information, please see Online Program.
Whether you choose to work one on one with a certified nutrition coach or become a member of Venice Nutrition, you will have the tools, knowledge and personalized plan that you need to reach your personal goals.
How does VN customize my Personal Nutrition Plan and Health Structure?
When joining Venice Nutrition, you are asked to complete a detailed Nutrition and Fitness Assessment. This assessment is designed to evaluate your personal goals, current nutrition and exercise habits, lifestyle, body composition and general health.
Venice Nutrition determines your individual nutritional parameters based on a number of factors. Our first step is to analyze your current nutrition (ie. how many meals per day you consume, approximate portion sizes and grams of protein per day). Your current dietary habits are very important in determining the quantity of food as well as the correct ratio of nutrients per meal that your body will be able to metabolize. If you recorded your body fat % while completing the assessment, that number is taken into account to determine your percentage of body fat vs. lean muscle mass. If body fat % is unknown, your height and weight are used in a special formula based on your body mass index.
Your customized meal plans are based upon your nutritional parameters and favorite food items that you choose while completing your Food Preference List.
Our next step is to evaluate your lifestyle including your current sleep, exercise (how many days per week and duration of each session), supplement and water intake. By analyzing all aspects of your current lifestyle, we are able to create realistic parameters for each category that will allow you to reach your personal nutrition and fitness goals.
How will I monitor my results?
Unlike typical diet programs, Venice Nutrition realizes the importance of improving your body from the inside out. If you have tried countless diets in the past only to lose and regain the weight while struggling with cravings and lack of energy, then this statement will mean a lot to you! All too often diets focus only on the weight loss and lead to a temporary result. Venice Nutrition teaches you how to actually change the way your body works and how to achieve balance for permanent success. How? By stabilizing your blood sugar and creating balance, your metabolism will increase and your body will become more efficient at burning fat. Best of all, you'll feel good! Your energy levels will increase while cravings disappear.
We have designed a checklist for our clients to monitor their progress (you'll notice that weight loss is not number one on the list!). Rest assured, the weight loss will come and in order for it to be a permanent result, we must focus on improving your body on the inside first.
Our members learn how to monitor their progress by this simple 7 step system:
We are all unique individuals and the rate at which you reach each point on the checklist varies depending on age, gender, past dieting history and most importantly, your compliance. We encourage you to work your program one day at a time and progress at your own pace; after all that is how to make a permanent shift in your lifestyle!
Does Venice Nutrition offer support?
