When I met Alex and joined the Evolved Coaching Program, I was facing a crossroads in my life. I was on the brink of turning 35 yrs. old, 50+ lbs overweight and 6 months away from getting married. I've battled with my weight my entire life and I found myself, once again, losing the battle.
I’ll be honest I was embarrassed, ashamed and didn’t want to be seen in any pictures, let alone my wedding pictures that were supposed to celebrate the happiest day of my life.
Losing 60 lbs in 6 months was the most ambitious goal I’d ever set in my life, but knew that I would be dedicated to work hard enough if someone could help me with a plan that fit with my lifestyle and got me results.
Standing up on the altar marrying my best friend having lost 62 lbs feeling confident again, wanting to be in pictures and getting to enjoy the best day of my life without stressing about how I looked or my weight was better than I’d imagined.
I went into this with a goal of losing 60 lbs for my wedding, and I hit that goal (pretty easily actually) .I literally could not have accomplished what I did without Alex's coaching, dedication and support. I still can’t believe it sometimes, but this is my new life now, thanks again Alex!
After years of making dietary and exercise changes I was able to lose a lot of weight in my journey, but I hit a stall that I couldn’t break past.
I was doing everything that I knew to be right in terms of nutrition and exercise. I often thought to myself "if I can lose 90lbs, then why can't I lose this last 20lbs?”.
I had been eating within the paleo and gluten free framework but could not get the results I wanted physically, and on top of that was feeling very fatigued, low energy had extreme fluctuating moods.
Even though I was exercising like a demon and had even gotten a trainer nothing was working. I was about to admit defeat and accept that getting leaner and having the kind of energy I used to wasn’t going to happen.
Instead of giving up though I decided it was time for help and contacted Alex McMahon to join his Evolved Nutrition Coaching Program.
During our first consultation Alex explained areas of my current diet and lifestyle that were stalling my progress. When explaining the steps we were going to take to keep me moving towards my goals I felt completely supported and encouraged.
The support and encouragement didn’t end with that consultation, Alex was always available to answer any questions I had. He checked in with me multiple times per week to monitor progress and help troubleshoot any roadblocks.
After a few weeks of adopting the new nutrition and lifestyle habits I noticed I was getting much leaner, but also saw huge improvements in multiple areas of my life such as sleep quality, energy, stress management throughout the day, and much more stable moods.
I was feeling much healthier and happier overall and the process was made simple and Alex was there every step of the way to support and keep me accountable.
With this plan I finally lost the fat that was bothering me for the last two years around my mid-section. As I continued to work with Alex my body composition improved during each phase of the plan he helped me implement.
I look and feel better than ever, and don’t think I could have accomplished this without the help and support that Alex and the Evolved Coaching Program.
For years I’d eaten pretty healthy, and exercised regularly but was never able to lose the belly fat I wanted to reclaim my confidence and health.
I tried a ton of different approaches like paleo, keto and even vegan at one point and while they each made made me feel a little better none of them helped me to get as lean as I wanted.
After multiple failed attempts at diets I knew it was time to get some help from a professional and got in touch with Alex to coach me.
I explained the challenges in the past that sabotaged my attempts to lose the weight, things such as being in grad school, doing hospital rotations, working and also wanting to live a normal life with my fiance and go out for date nights.
The best part is none of that seemed to stump Alex, we created a plan together that worked for my lifestyle not against it.
The plan that Alex created honestly reduced my stress around food by taking all the guesswork out of it, and making things simpler than I ever thought they could be.
When I had questions or needed guidance he was always there to support and keep me accountable to my goals.
He even went the extra mile to look at menus, check in weekly and helped me stay on track with my goals.
Here I am down 20 lbs and 8 inches, and feeling like the best version of myself to date, and that’s in large to Alex and the Evolved Nutrition Coaching Program!
“I so appreciateAlex McMahon and the Evolved Coaching Program. The encouragement, support, accountability and plan he developed that helped me break a weight loss plateau that camped out in my life for years.
We’ve worked through all mindset and food struggles so I keep losing the pounds and inches consistently. I’ve regained my confidence, eat the foods I love instead of yo-yo dieting and these results will last a lifetime, finally! Thanks, Alex!”
I first started to work with Alex at Evolve Nutritional Therapy over a year ago, I was looking for answers for my constant digestive distress. I run my own business and have a very active social life, but my painful digestive attacks negatively impacted my business and social life.
I was tired of living this way and letting IBS be a constant struggle, that’s why I turned to Alex for help. We went through my daily eating and lifestyle habits, and he got me started on an elimination diet to try to pinpoint some foods that could be triggering my attacks.
Alex always explained in detail why we were removing certain foods and, I felt supported throughout the process. The smaller changes we implemented really helped me to stay on track with the new habits we built together.
Within the first two weeks there was a drastic reduction in my painful digestive attacks and it only got better! After going through the full elimination diet and reintroduction process we were able to find out that a lot of the foods I was consuming on a daily basis for years were strong triggers for my IBS attacks.
Every phase of food elimination or introduction was done in a way that was manageable with my busy life, the last thing I needed was more stress.
It has been about a year and my IBS no longer is a struggle or a constant thought, and on top of that I look and feel better than I ever have. I highly recommend Alex’s Evolved Nutrition coaching Program, it fundamentally changed my life!
