HI, I'M TREVA GARCIA, A REGISTERED DIETITIAN/Nutritionist, CERTIFIED PERSONAL TRAINER, AND CERTIFIED HEALTH COACH.
I'm not one of those dietitians or personal trainers that has never had to lose a pound of fat nor had any chronic disease. After my struggle with autoimmune thyroid disease, I had 40 pounds of very resistant weight to take off. I understand being frustrated with a slow metabolism, hormone imbalances, insulin resistance and chronic disease. I found myself knowing "what I should be doing to lose weight," but not getting results and not being able to force myself to do it.
“THAT’S BECAUSE THE USUAL ADVICE OF JUST EAT LESS AND EXERCISE DOESN’T WORK.
I knew there had to be a better way to get healthy and lose weight. I became obsessed searching for the answers. It led me to research in nutrition, exercise science, hormones, neuroscience, behavior change psychology, and habit formation. Through all this study and my own personal journey, I've developed a unique habit-based approach to getting healthy and losing weight--all without dieting.
I've since helped hundreds of people by teaching them to work with their own bodies, lifestyles, and preferences to develop a personalized health habit plan to reach their goals. I am the expert on nutrition, but you're the expert on you. We work together as a team to develop the unique habits of food, activity, and health that you need to get to your ideal health and weight. My clients find it invaluable to have an experienced, non-judgemental coach to guide them, support them, and provide accountability while on their health journey.
“Weight loss has stopped being about just fitting in your favorite jeans, and is now about having the health and the habits you need to take care of yourself and your family.
I get that finding time and energy for your own health is a challenge--I'm a mom of four kids. We all need solutions that work for "real people" with children, jobs, pets, PTA and church responsibilities, kids' soccer practices, health limitations, and time crunches.
But, getting healthy and losing weight isn’t impossible, and it doesn't need to take over your life. With some strategic new habits and some shifts in your mindset, you can create the healthy family and lifestyle that you have always wanted.
Stop wasting your time and energy, and do what works for you instead.
Now, I want to get to know more about you. I'd love to hear about what brings you to Real Healthy Habits and what your biggest “get healthy” obstacles are. Also, I love to hear about any success you've had with the methods I teach. Please click below to introduce yourself. I'd love to meet you!
JUST A FEW MORE Interesting THINGS ABOUT ME
I love coaching my clients (y’all rock). My favorite thing to do is order books from Amazon (and reading ½ of them). I enjoy kickboxing (and I'm okay at it). I like lifting weights (but only if the gym isn't too crowded).
I don't mind cooking (but only when I am not tired). My husband and I end the evening by saying what we loved about each other that day. My husband's comment is usually related to something that I cooked for him;-). Yes, I love to eat delicious food—and I do it every single day!
I have four kids with the oldest in college and my youngest starting kindergarten this year (what was I thinking?)
My passion is to help others reach their health goals by working with their unique Awesomeness—instead of against themselves.
