129 – Health Coaching Breakdown with Claudine Francois

Welcome back to the Scale Your Small Business Podcast with your host, Jillian Flodstrom! Our guest today is Claudine Francois, a Certified Professional Health & Weight Loss Coach who helps successful women lose weight, gain energy and feel fabulous in their bodies by eating food they love. By helping entrepreneurs find their zen, she helps launch them into success.

A health coach is someone who holds you accountable for the things you want to achieve, helps develop strategies to get there, and builds a plan around your health. Just like a business coach, a health coach is there to support you along the journey. 

As a former CFO of a multi-national company, Claudine found herself in a constant state of stress, which led her into a cycle of over-indulging in what she later discovered to be harmful foods to her body, and reeling from the consequences (frequent headaches and migraines, sluggishness, inflammation, bloating, leaky gut, and weight gain). 

She decided to take control of her life by achieving lasting energy, the patience to deal with life’s twists and turns, and eating nourishing foods that taste great! She now helps women entrepreneurs find their own zen, fabulous sleep and vibrance, and effortless weight loss with her own practices and lifestyle strategies.

Sleep is the number one thing you can do to improve your health. Without proper sleep, you’re not going to have the cognitive ability to accomplish anything, nonetheless business operations. Make yourself a priority–when you get less sleep you tend to eat more sugary things. It’s a win-win. If you still need that boost in the afternoon, consider a walk!

Stress happens. Deep breaths actually stimulate our parasympathetic nervous system, which is the opposite of fight or flight, and adaptogens can help your system work through the stress better. Meditation is great for just getting refocused if you need to.
