Thanks to Shelli for outlining this so well. This is the perfect resource to work through with your clients around day 11 as they look at finishing up Bootcamp.
TRANSITIONING GENTLY OUT OF BOOTCAMP
So Bootcamp is coming to an end. Good job! Experience has shown us that a gentle transition from Bootcamp to Phase 2 gives our clients the best success rate. Here’s our suggestion. For the next 2 weeks (The 2 weeks immediately following your Bootcamp), we want you to continue with the same formula as Bootcamp’s 3-2-1.
FOR THESE TWO TRANSITION WEEKS
You may now add only:
*Fruit (B list),
*Whole grains and sweet potatoes. (C list). To clarify: Whole grains mean the whole grain. If you have to cook it in water, it is a whole grain. For example oats, rice, quinoa, barley, slow cook breakfast cereals etc… Whole grain pasta, bread and wraps do not count for these 2 weeks. We will add them in again shortly.
In addition to using fruit as a snack option, it may be eaten with or added to a shake.
An increase in activity may feel good at this point; with the additions of the above foods, there should be an increase in overall energy. This is where you will start to feel fantastic!
ONCE THE 2 TRANSITION WEEKS ARE OVER, THEN WHAT?!
As you come to the end of your transition weeks, revisit the new “B” & “C” lists in the Phase 2 section of your weight management guide.
Make a priority list of the foods that you have really missed. Decide which ones you can‘t live without and which ones will become a permanent part of your past lifestyle.
At this point, it would be a GREAT idea to have your client come up with a 3 day menu, just like you did for boot camp and have them send it to you for review as well as email you what they actually eat on those days so you can check up on them. It is critical that they have and take the opportunity to be accountable for their choices. It’s why they chose to work with a coach.
This is their new lifestyle! Congratulate them on their positive changes.
