PN Coaching Helps Cancer Survivors Lose Body Fat

Here’s the final study, again done in conjunction with Dr. Shannon Lynch and Dr. Kathryn Schmitz (mentioned above).

In this one we studied young male (testis) and female (breast) cancer survivors. We examined:

* weight loss,
* body fat %,
* BMI,
* waist-to-hip ratio
* retention rates
* adverse events.

Again, exciting results. Men and women who completed the program:

* lost an average of 17.8 pounds,
* lost 9% of their initial body weight,
* decreased their BMI by 2.5,
* lost 3.5% body fat.

In conclusion, as half of adult cancer survivors under the age of 50 are obese and struggle with weight loss, this study showed that PN Coaching can help this population lose weight, lose fat, and lower BMI.

Cancer Survivors in Coaching Decrease BMI

Another recently published study was done in conjunction with Dr. Shannon Lynch and Dr. Kathryn Schmitz, both PN Coaching grads and researchers at the Perelman School of Medicine at University of Pennsylvania and the Fox Chase Cancer Center in Philadelphia.

In this one we studied female breast cancer survivors who underwent prophylactic oophorectomy and thus experienced premature surgical menopause. We examined:

* cardiovascular fitness,
* dietary intake,
* leisure time activity,
* body composition,
* bone mineral density,
* bone structure,
* muscle strength.

Again, really positive results…

* Average adherence to the program was 74.8%.

* Women in coaching maintained their fitness (1.1%) while the control group decreased (-4.0%).

* Women in coaching gained bone area (0.5) while the control group decreased (-0.8).

* Women in coaching decreased BMI (-4.7%) and fat mass (-8.6%) while the control group only lost lean mass.

In conclusion, in this population at high risk for negative bone and cardiovascular outcomes, PN Coaching preserved cardiovascular health, improved bone health, decreased weight through fat loss.

Women Who Complete PN Coaching Lose Weight

Three scientific papers have now been published – in peer-reviewed journals – to report on the safety/effectiveness of PN’s methods.

This is awesome because, although *we* know our coaching methods are world class, having been proven with more than 45,000 of our own clients…

..people outside Precision Nutrition sometimes remain skeptical, especially those in the evidence-based communities (including medicine, Pharma, etc).

Not only do these studies show *very* positive results, they also demonstrate our coaching is truly “evidence-based”. In the latest study, done in conjunction with Dr. Maggie Watt, a PN Coaching graduate and physician from Victoria, BC, we studied a group of overweight/obese women in her practice.

Particularly, we looked at how PN Coaching influences:

* weight,
* waist circumference,
* fat mass,
* muscle mass,
* blood pressure,
* total cholesterol,
* and other factors.

The results were very exciting. Over 12 months, women who
completed the program:

* lost an average of 16.5 pounds
* reduced waist circumference by an average of 3.4 inches
* decreased diastolic blood pressure by 3.33 mmHg
* increased high density lipoproteins by 0.14 mmol/L

In conclusion, the women who completed PN Coaching experienced significant weight loss (8.3% of initial body weight) coming mostly from body fat. Chronic disease risk factors also improved.
