Frequently Asked Questions

Are weight loss supplements or pills effective in overcoming plateaus, or should I avoid them?
Weight loss supplements or pills may not be the best approach and could have potential side effects. It's better to focus on lifestyle changes and seek advice from healthcare professionals if needed.
Are there any fad diets that can be considered safe or effective?
While some fad diets might have elements of healthy eating, it's always essential to research and consult with health professionals. Diets that promote balance and are not overly restrictive tend to be safer.
Do all calories have the same impact on weight?
While a calorie is a standard measure of energy, the source matters. For example, 100 calories from a sugary drink can affect hunger, energy, and fat storage differently than 100 calories from whole foods like vegetables.
Is it possible to achieve healthy weight loss without following a specific diet?
Yes, focusing on balanced nutrition, mindful eating, regular exercise, and making sustainable lifestyle changes can lead to healthy weight loss without the need for a labeled "diet."
I have dietary restrictions. Can I still meal plan?
Certainly! In fact, meal planning is especially beneficial for those with dietary restrictions as it ensures you get the nutrients you need.
How do I account for unplanned events or changes in my schedule?
Flexibility is key. Have some backup simple and healthy recipes or meal ideas for such occasions.
What if I don't stick to my meal plan?
It's okay! Life happens. Use it as a learning experience and adjust accordingly. Remember, it's about overall patterns and consistency.
Is it true that green tea can boost metabolism?
Yes, studies have shown that green tea can increase metabolism and promote fat burning, especially when combined with regular exercise and a balanced diet.
Can lack of sleep affect metabolism?
Yes, insufficient sleep can negatively impact metabolic rate and lead to weight gain. Quality sleep is essential for the body's metabolic and hormonal processes.
Are there any supplements that can safely boost metabolism?
Some supplements claim to boost metabolism, but it's essential to approach them with caution. Always consult with a healthcare professional before starting any new supplement, as some can have side effects or interact with medications.
How long do weight loss plateaus typically last, and is there a point when I should be concerned about one?
Plateaus can vary in duration but often last a few weeks. If you've not seen any progress for more than four weeks despite consistent efforts, it's a good idea to reevaluate your routine and consider seeking professional advice.
How does pricing work?
Pricing depends on the type of training package that best suits your needs. You can get an idea of pricing by contacting Paul to set up a consultation, and discussing your training goals.
If I've tried multiple strategies and still can't break through the plateau, should I seek professional help or advice?
If you're struggling to overcome the plateau, consulting with a registered dietitian or healthcare professional can provide personalized guidance and support to help you achieve your weight loss goals.

Paul does personal training in downtown Calgary, at the World Health Bay Club. While training is not offered at other locations in Calgary, online personal training is available.
What should I expect at a fitness consultation?
Your consultation will take place either in person at the gym or over the phone. Your fitness consultation is an opportunity to discuss your unique fitness goals with Paul, and to decide what training plan works best for you. We usually ask that men bring a pair of shorts, and that women bring a two-piece swimsuit for before and after photos.

I’ve never been an avid exerciser. Do I need a personal trainer?
