It's Worth the Effort When You See the Results!

Down a total of 21lbs, 7.6% body fat and 8.5 inches! 

It's crazy even the difference just in the last 8 weeks alone.  Using the new CORE line of products made it easy to have a completely balanced meal of protein, fat and carbs even on the go.  It's worth the effort when you see the results.

Comments from community group participants.....

FuelIgniteThrive - Lost With Weight Watchers Twice and Regained Both Times

Lost With Weight Watchers Twice and Regained Both Times

"Initially was uncertain of eating so often as I was not accustomed to that..... It did not take long to grow accustomed to it though.....I have been satisfied with the results..... not the large numbers I see  posted on FBook, (but)  I have made my own progress .....I also had several cheats and went off program but got right back on the next day. I was hesitant to take a (before) picture (and after) at the 8 week mark but was pleased to "see" the difference. I have Tania to thank for that plus her pleasant style of coaching along the way, very supportive and encouraging.  I feel I have acquired the tools and  knowledge to carry on and also know that Tania is just a call or text away for additional help."

Loved the program and my coach. You (Tania) are so encouraging; I never felt defeated in my efforts.  This is something that will always be in the forefront of my thinking when I go out to eat and also on a daily basis.

FuelIgniteThrive - I'm Sharing (This Program) With Whoever Will Listen

I'm Sharing (This Program) With Whoever Will Listen

Really enjoyed not dieting and losing weight and getting healthy at the same time. I will continue to live this way.  I am reading through the Body Confidence book and will continue to educate myself.  I'm hooked.  I don't miss sugar, dairy or grains, actually feel liberated, awesome.

I am a big believer that you are the sum total of your thoughts or your way of thinking. So if you don’t change your thinking you won’t realize the change on the outside you desire., (Definition of insanity). When I first started “8 weeks is all it takes” I made a commitment to study even more about what I was putting into my body and so on. Marks book was huge in that. As a testimony, one of the things we had to do initially was cut out grains, which I later learned because of that, was an issue for me. So I went to reading more about and now my thinking is changed and I can’t go back. Grain was the source of a fair bit of joint pain and is for most people. Now, no grain, no pain (great book). I am feeling better more and more all the time and am convinced that aged related pain is just bad food choices and lack of exercise culminating in achy joints and arthritis. So change on the outside will always be preceded by change on the inside, or your way of thinking and beliefs. Your “why”, providing it agrees with your moral beliefs, just grounds and establishes those beliefs. Food for thought...hehe.

Down 33lbs, over 23 inches and went from size 18/20 to size 12/14.

It was tough at first but after the first 8 weeks I started seeing results, my blood pressure has dropped and I haven’t had a panic attack in a year!

Thank you to my wonderful coach Tania Gustafson and to The Body challenge for changing my life.

Lean, Clean Results

James Pham, a gymnastic's coach who also teaches tricking and parcour at Kelowna Gymnastix, competed in his first amateur body building competition held recently in Kelowna and took home second.  Following clean eating, balancing his PFCs (protein, fats and carbs), using quality protein supplements like Core protein, and training regularly is what James credits his success.  With such fantastic results the first time out, I believe James will continue to improve and refine his physique so that next year he will claim first place.  Congratulations James!

Sodium Depletion for Cleaner Results

As a Nutritionist and Fitness Coach, I have always maintained my health and stayed in good shape.  With the launch of Mark Macdonald's 8 Week Run and the education I received as a health professional, I have been able to manipulate my body even further, shedding 7lbs and 3.8% body fat in just 8 weeks.  To even further refine results for photo shoots, body building competitions, modelling shows, a one-week sodium depletion is recommended to get super lean, clean, totally water/bloat free results.  Over the last 5 months, I have launched 8 Weeks Is All It Takes locally here in Kelowna in an effort to share this fantastic plan of eating to balance blood sugar, NOT dieting. The program is exploding and I have been able to help clients locally as well as internationally, lose the weight and achieve their health and fitness goals.  Join the 8 Weeks Is All It Takes! group on Facebook TODAY and start taking back control of your health and your life tomorrow.  Remember, the transformation ALWAYS begins with YOU!

FuelIgniteThrive - People Are Constantly Telling Me How Great I Look Now

People Are Constantly Telling Me How Great I Look Now

The very best thing that happened is I stopped feeling hungry all the time. Sugar cravings, which were a constant battle for me, were gone. When it came to meal times I wonderfully felt satisfied already and it didn't take much to fill me up as long as I didn't detour from the menu. What a pleasant way to lose weight.  I have lost weight and at the same time have adapted excellent eating habits that don't trouble me. My eating times actually come up on me so quickly that the only trouble I end up having is finding the time to eat.......This is incredible to me.

My exercise program has become easier also and I realize that I can do way more now. The recommended supplements are a life saver. Not only have they been delicious but wow what a time saver when I am rushing about. I really really enjoy the shakes and the bars. I could probably live just off of these but my nutrition coordinator won't allow me!

Recommending Tania Gustafson and Venice Nutrition to others is something I wouldn't hesitate one second about and I already have had the pleasure to explain to people the wonderful benefit of her as a nutritional coach. She is the most professional person in every aspect of this program. People are constantly coming up to me and telling me how great I look now. Even my roommates who see me everyday have taken notice and remarked at how much better I look and if you knew my roommates that is an extraordinary comment to receive from them! I am proud to be involved in this amazing program.

FuelIgniteThrive - I Dropped Those Excess Pounds

I Dropped Those Excess Pounds

It is very difficult for me to be disciplined  around food. I am a busy person and tend to grab something convenient and usually unhealthy.
Tania has helped me to slow down and prepare for planning more nutritious and balanced meals that give me more energy.  People have noticed my skin is looking clearer.  I have lost inches and some pounds, but most of all I feel energized throughout the day.  I am eating a wider variety of foods, exercising more and Tania has encouraged and supported me in this process.   She has been an excellent coach.   At my last visit to the doctor he said, 'I wish all my patients were as keen as you on maintaining your health.'

I don't feel hungry. I don't crave sweet things and this is my biggest weakness. Everyone is saying how well I look , as well, as dropped those excess pounds. All my mother's side of the family are overweight. I am not following this trend. I want to live long, enjoy my life and above all, be healthy. Tania has helped me view my nutrition, not just losing weight, but that it is adopting a healthy lifestyle of eating.

FuelIgniteThrive - I Was Suffering From a Lower Back Injury

I Was Suffering From a Lower Back Injury

Prior to meeting Tania I was suffering from a lower back injury but determined that I was going to get better. I just didn’t know how to do it. I have always been athletic and knew bits and pieces of how to work out.....I didn’t know how my back injury was going to react.....but I had to try. Tania was very welcoming and wasn’t pushy about her way of doing things. In fact it was more about a way that would work out for me. And it did!  Before long I was feeling my back and core getting stronger..... and I felt the muscles had more freedom. My core excercises are difficult but after a few weeks they are not so bad, then a few more weeks and I start looking forward to them cause I know I can win them over.   Today is a different day....My body moves better and has the freedom to help out my back. It is a new day at the new school of working out and I look forward to my next training sessions with Tania.
