What does holistic mean?
Ashley is honored to be one of the few holistic health coaches in Orange County, CA. By using a holistic method in her approach to health and wellness, she looks at the WHOLE person and how all areas of your life affect each other. Ashley then assesses certain factors in your life to analyze what is holding you back from your health goals. Many women struggle with issues like romantic relationships causing stress and overeating, or poor eating habits around a certain person. As Ashley and her OC health clients look at all parts of their lives and how they affect each’s well-being as a whole.
How is Ashley different from a licensed nutritionist or dietitian?
Both a licensed nutritionist and dietician are trained to calculate your nutritional needs so they can provide guidance around health and disease. Based on their findings, they help you eat the right foods, workout the right amount for your body and eventually reach your overall health goals by using the calculations they find on the scale. As a holistic health coach, Legaci Wellness differs in its approach because not only will you learn what to eat and how to work out for your body type, you’ll also learn the what, when, where, and how of certain foods and how they work in your body. You’ll find simple ways to add healthy foods and habits into your everyday life for an overall healthier you both mentally and physically. Legaci’s holistic programs dive deeper than the numbers on the scale, by looking at where your cravings, self-sabotages, and slips come from, and not just about the actual food you’re eating. Ashley will equip you with the tools you need to live a healthy and hot life!
What is a health coach?
A health coach is a wellness guide and supportive mentor. As an experienced Costa Mesa health coach, Ashley goes on a journey with each client to achieve their goals of losing weight, reducing cravings and understanding where those cravings come from. There is strong focus on achieving a higher energy level so every woman can become the best version of her healthiest and hottest self. Ashley helps ladies be able to get a clear vision of the food and lifestyle that works best for them to provide sustainable change for optimal health.
Ever wonder why you and your friend could be doing the same diet while she loses weight much faster than you do? Don’t worry, you are not alone! This is the concept of bio-individuality. The concept is that one person’s food can be another person’s poison. We are all created differently and have different food intolerances that majority of us are unaware of. This is why diets usually don’t create lasting change and your weight continuously fluctuates. Ashley will help you create a personalized roadmap to health that suits your unique body, lifestyle, preferences, and goals.
The food on our plate is not the only thing in life that gives us nourishment. There are lots of factors in our daily lives such as healthy relationships, a fulfilling career, regular exercise, and spiritual awareness that are all essential forms of nourishment. When these “primary foods” are balanced, what you eat becomes secondary. When they are unbalanced, that is when we tend to add the bad foods on to our actual plates.
While everyone’s results vary based on many factors, here are some things you can expect to see after using Legaci as your ultimate health coach!
