Lean Seekers is a Nutrition Education and Coaching company. We coach you to achieve better health, optimum weight and total fitness. The emphasis is to teach a healthy way of eating that will give you more energy, better sleep, control of cholesterol, blood pressure and blood sugar. All of this will lead to optimal weight.
The foundation is a health program and “by the way” if you need to lose weight you will. Calories count but we don’t count calories, rather we deal with nutrition and find that the calories are automatically controlled. Physique and body weight are not the emphasis but desirable changes occur when you observe complete nutrition habits. So this is a WOE (way of eating) plan. It is built around protein and nutritional density requirements. We coach you through several transition phases and try to make it simple. It is not “rocket science” but you do need to make changes if you want changes to occur. That is how we help.
