Today’s chat is with Dr. Ashley Lucas of PHD Weight Loss, a doctor and dietitian-developed weight loss program. Dr. Ashely has a Ph.D. in both sports nutrition and chronic diseases, and is a registered dietitian. She comes from the field of nutrition for weight loss and wellness with a unique background, having spent the first 25 years of her life training to become a professional ballet dancer. The deeply rooted pursuit of perfection inherent in ballet was continuously met with injuries and the constant battle to maintain the ballet-specific body type that is expected of ballet performers. Understanding the importance nutrition played in her own athletic performance, she retired from professional dancing and started her journey to become an expert in the field of nutrition and wellness. Today Dr. Lucas owns and operates five brick and mortar weight loss locations and a nationwide virtual weight loss program which relies heavily on health coaches as part of its delivery. In today’s episode, we discuss what happens in the body of chronic dieters, visualizing success with your clients, program specifics and so much more. Let’s dive into this wonderful discussion with Dr. Ashley Lucas.
