When beginning your new healthy lifestyle, consider the following questions. Do you know how many calories you consume every day? How many calories should you be consuming? How much protein do you eat daily and how much should you be eating? How many steps do you take daily on average?
These are all important questions that everyone should be able to answer, yet many of us cannot. When I start working with a new client, my first objective is to always get a solid baseline of where the client is starting. We need to know where we are today before we can set goals for the future.
