Margarita Cramer, Health Coach
A Certified Health Coach is a critical link in the healthcare chain. I fill the gap that helps improve your overall health and wellness and prevent illness by walking alongside you. My role is to educate, motivate and renew or transform you to achieve your health goals.
Every “body” is different. We each have different genetics, body size, metabolism. It is important that you become aware of what works for you and do not compare yourself to anyone else. A healthy lifestyle is finding what feels right for you, what works for you, and living it with gusto!
I grew up in Colombia. My mom had Type I diabetes. My sister and I were tested regularly and we were very aware of this disease. Eating out was a real treat, meals were made from scratch, and we got plenty of exercise and playtime. Diabetes is very prevalent in my Latino culture and it may be the reason why I’m passionate about wellness and being the captain of my health.
Diabetes is considered early aging as it deteriorates all your organs sooner. I saw that with my mom, and now with my sister and other relatives.
People need to know the basics when they want to develop healthy habits: how to shop, how to get protein, how to eat healthy fats, why exercise is good for you, food label reading techniques, portion control tips, and a few more.
My role as a coach is to educate, motivate and help you change. It is to bring “awareness” about the food you eat, share with you the benefits of eating real food and the impact on your body; educate you on how exercise releases Nitric Oxide to create your own internal medicine pharmacy; motivate you to make lasting changes that work for you. You are the expert on your life: you know your food sensitivities, allergies, medications and the coach, is your accountability partner and cheerleader. Right?
Speaking of awareness. Have you ever thought why the food pyramid keeps changing? Our body has not changed but why is it that our government keeps changing its mind about the food we need to eat?
