Mild, Medium or Hot – What’s It Gonna Be?

Chili and chocolateIt sounds like a preference for hot sauce, I know.

Or better still – how do you like your Chinese take-out?

As you may have guessed, it’s none of the above.

Rather – “Do You Want Mild, Medium or Hot?“ – is one of the first questions I ask my private clients, because I want to know about your food preferences, and how “deep” you’re willing to go in the coaching process.

Of course, it’s a given that I’ll be looking closely at your diet and making recommendations on where I see room for change.

At the same time, I don’t want to suggest anything that you’re not at all comfortable with.

(Not right off the bat, anyway).

Hence the question.

After all, it’s my job as a coach to help you stretch and realize the possibilities for turning your health around.

(This means a constant back-and-forth and checking in with how you’re feeling, what’s working for you and what isn’t).

So – what’s it gonna be?

How deep are you prepared to go?

You want “Mild”?

That’s OK – you’ll start small. Gluten will be the #1 thing to go, of course. (You can count on that).

And maybe that’s it – in the beginning, anyway.

On the other hand, if you feel that “Medium” is more to your liking – then you’ll be digging a bit deeper, and scratching beneath the surface, so to speak.

Lastly, if your answer is “Hot” – that tells me you’re tired of feeling sick and tired, and are ready for a complete overhaul.

(Especially if you’ve already given up gluten and dairy, and a few other things – and you feel that nothing’s working).

By the way, here’s what else I might be asking:

“What do you love to eat for Breakfast?”

“What do you love to eat for Lunch, or Dinner?”

I want to know!

After all, how else can I guide you to making better choices, if I don’t have a clear grasp of your food preferences and what you’re struggling with most?

So, that’s our starting point.

And from there – based on your answers to these questions – the possibilities are really endless.

Which is truly the best part.

P.S. Since food isn’t the only thing you put into your body, I wouldn’t be doing my job as a health coach if I didn’t look at everything – including you habits, your lifestyle and your environment.

All of it matters!


Now it’s your turn.

Which of these describes you best – Mild, Medium, or Hot?

How would you answer that question?
