PRIMAL COACHING

Individual Assessments

Marybeth takes on a limited number of 1:1 clients for Primal living consultations.

Each consultation is 90 minutes long. You will complete a health assessment prior to the session so that Marybeth can tailor the time to meet your needs and answer your questions. She will not only give guidance on nutrition, fasting and exercise but guide you in advocating for yourself with your doctor, suggested testing (many that can be done at home), ideal lab ranges and  supplements to consider.

For motivated women ready to

uplevel their health

Consultations are for busy women who have not had success on their own with their health goals. You are ready to invest time and resources to support your success and define what success means to you. If you want to lose weight, lower your rate of obesity, heart disease, diabetes, mental health disease and other chronic health conditions with a simple strategy through diet, fasting, and movement, I am ready and excited to help you.

Pricing and Info

Typically women contact me directly through the contact form. Here is my email and the best way to dialog and ask any questions:

The initial consultation is 90 minutes and is $300. That will include an intake form that you will fill out prior to our meeting. That way I can make the most efficient use of our time and have an idea of your goals. After the meeting I will email you everything we spoke about like diet, fasting and exercise recommendations (as well as any links for ordering supplements, possible tests, other resources…) and get you started on an initial plan to meet your goals. (So, no need to take notes).

Follow up meetings are typically 1 hour and $200. Most women feel that meeting once a week initially is best and at some point when they feel they are moving forward nicely contact me for check-ins once a month or quarterly depending where they are at.

I am also available during the week for short questions by text or email and if it is something you feel will be supportive I will check in every couple days if I don’t hear from you.

PRIMAL NUTRITION

80% of your body composition is determined by how you eat. Science now proves the “calories in, calories out” model is outdated. Yes, calories matter but the type of food you eat matters more. 100 calories of Coke/a candy bar/pasta is not the same as 100 calories of steak or broccoli and your body will show you. Primal Nutrition, which mimics our ancestors’ dietary patterns in a modern world, consists of above ground vegetables, meat, berries, nuts and seeds.  Some folks are able to have dairy as well.  If you are an athlete or do not need to lose weight you have more flexibility with your fruit options as well as root vegetables. We will discuss the best plan for you that will be delicious and tailored to your specific goals.  I have extensively studied and have used myself Keto, Carnivore, AIP and Whole 30.  I will also help you make better choices at restaurants and teach how to easily eat out anywhere.

PRIMAL FASTING

Did you know that fasting is an important part of nutrition? There are many ways to fast and we will carefully consider what is best for you and your goals.  Although not required, I typically recommend everyone do some form of Intermittent Fasting or Time Restricted Eating. Humans were just not designed to eat all day long. The 3 meal and 3 snacks a day model triggers an insulin response and is one of the reasons for our high rate of metabolic dysfunction and extremely high rates of obesity and diabetes.  

There are many safe and simple ways to fast. It’s not as hard as you think and it brings enormous benefits for overall health and longevity.

Here are a few options I’ve used successfully with clients (each tailored to individual needs):

  • 16:8 fast for 16 hours with an eating window of 8 hours
  • 18:6 fast for 18 hours with an eating window of 6 hours
  • 24 hour fast or OMAD-(one meal a day)
  • 36 hour fast- for example eat dinner on Monday and fast until eating breakfast on Wednesday

PRIMAL EXERCISE

The other 20% which includes exercise, sleep and a stress balanced lifestyle.  No more chronic cardio.  Chronic cardio is stressing our bodies (creating adrenal fatigue) and making us fat. It increases cortisol and is not friendly to weight loss, sleep, hormone balance, thyroid regulation, etc. A primal exercise plan features frequent comfortably paced movement like walking, regular brief strength training sessions (think lift heavy things or resistance bands) and once a week all out sprints.  This can be running up a hill, on a stationary bike, a rowing machine or simply walking as fast as possible for a very short duration. With these 3 things, you have the perfect combination for fitness and longevity.  The best form of exercise is actually walking so do not stress if you have been sedentary.  We will start where you are at and make progress with whatever works best for you.
