Since HK joined Coach Viva, she has lost 28 lbs in 4 months.
"I don’t binge eat anymore. Coach Viva will take feedback from you, and each time you’re about to binge give you either a summary of the calories you’re about to intake or give you healthier alternatives. Both have been great deterrents for me."
"Coach Viva helps me set realistic goals. I wanted to cold turkey start on a keto diet which I had done in the past and left because it’s so hard, so instead we started taking down my carb intake slowly. I started at eating 250+ carbs per day, and am down to an average of 100-140 carbs. It’s been a big game changer too."
"If I’m going out with friends, I’ll send the restaurant’s menu to Coach Viva to give me healthier choices to pick from. I recently had my bachelorette and I’m proud to say, I didn’t gain any weight over that weekend. All thanks to Viva!"
"I get recipes that I can afford to make. I have a very busy schedule so slow cooker recipes are preferred over cooking dinner when I get home. Voila, I don’t have to search a website, Coach Viva sends me all my recipes, with accurate serving and calorie intake."
The first time I tried losing weight, I thought there was something wrong with me
Richa Prasad CEO & Co-founder of Coach Viva
When I was a kid, I used to love imagining life as an adult.
I did not imagine:
I turned to the internet and was welcomed by a flurry of both quick-fix promises and conflicting advice.
I decided to try everything:
I didn’t enjoy my routine, and the scale did not reliably motivate me.
I'd give up. I felt like a loser with no willpower.
Hitting rock bottom
One day, I ate a late lunch. Shortly after, I clutched my chest, unable to breathe properly.
I urgently sought out a cardiologist, who adorned me with heart monitors then dismissed me with a clean bill of health. $1000+ later, and they still couldn't find anything wrong.
I was shocked and outraged. I was 27. Why was my body behaving like it was 80?
The wake-up call
There is no scale number that can undo years of poor mindset.
There is no magic pill that can undo years of poor habits.
I needed a lifestyle overhaul.
That meant in-depth education, mindset change, and an understanding of not just the “what” but also the “why” - the science behind our bodies and the forces behind our psychology.
|Old me||New me|
|Searching for one-stop solutions||Searching for education on the processes of nutrition, exercise, and mindset|
|Wondering why I'm broken compared to my “fit friends”||Asking why different bodies in same environments respond differently to stimuli|
|Asking which diet or workout was the “best”||Asking what makes them similar and different, what kinds of people stick to each, and for how long and why?|
|Basing success on a single number||Basing success on habits, trends, and self-awareness|
Happily ever after?
6 months after I started translating science and mindfulness to daily health habits, I achieved my goal of losing 7% body fat.
3 years later, I have kept the fat off and am still learning and improving myself daily. This time around because I want to, not because I feel like I have to.
Yes, I still occasionally indulge in cookies or skip workouts, and who doesn't? Life wouldn't be as fun without the occassional treat and relaxation day.
