Frequently asked questions

Low carb is the foundation food plan of Why Weight Academy.  You will be given a food plan template with suggested portions of protein, carbohydrate and fat.   Number of meals/snacks per day will depend on how much weight you need to lose.  In the eating guide you will find all the different options for protein/carbs/fat along with a meal options sheet and recipe guide.  This way of eating is based on simple, real food.  No supplements or special foods are required.

No.  The benefit of eating low carb is that you will be having portions of healthy fat throughout the day.  Fat helps to keep you satiated so you shouldn’t be hungry.

Yes.  It is possible to be vegetarian/vegan and still follow a low carb plan. The key is to make sure you are eating enough protein throughout the day.  Vegetarian/Vegan protein options are included within the eating guide.

No you don’t.  With the food plan you get a template of portions for protein/carbohydrate/fat that you should follow each meal.  On the meal options sheet you will find lots of suggestions for different meals.  But, it’s up to you which meals you choose to eat.  Low carb eating can be as simple or as complicated as you want it to be.

You can start as soon as you sign up!  The first three modules (food, goal setting and planning) are available as soon as you sign up.  

Pregnancy is an important time and your needs are unique.  If you are concerned about your nutrition during pregnancy, please book in a 1-1 appointment so we can discuss your individual needs. 

Yes.  If you suffer from irritable bowel syndrome, it is possible to follow a low-carb plan and lose weight.  The key for most people is to limit your intake of high FODMAP vegetables as it is often these high-fibre vegetables that can cause irritation.  I suffer from IBS and have managed my symptoms really well 

Yes.  You don’t have to do group coaching if you don’t want to.  The option is there if you want extra accountability and the chance to connect with me on a regular basis.  There will still be chances to communicate through our private Facebook page.

No.  You don’t have to weigh yourself if you don’t want to.  This is your journey and all that matters is that you are getting results you are happy with.  Everyone has their own goals and weighing yourself is not compulsary.

If you want to weigh yourself, you can book in for a 10-minute check-in with Sheryl on Saturday mornings in Orewa and you are welcome to come every week if desired.  You can also take a photo of the scales and send it to me if you want extra accountability.

There are no contracts – you can cancel your membership anytime you want to.

You will pay $147 to join the Academy and get all the goods.  After that there is a $29 weekly membership fee which gives you access to ongoing resources, weigh ins when desired, private Facebook page and group coaching.   All you need to stay accountable and stay on track!
