Thank you for choosing Paul McCarthy!
Paul started Balanced Lifestyle Nutrition in 2013. He is here to assist his clients manage weight loss and get healthier by educating them about their nutrition, improving their diet and guiding them to lead a healthier lifestyle. He also assists clients managing chronic conditions, such as diabetes, pre-diabetes, high cholesterol and high blood pressure.
Helping people reach their ideal health is a new life mission for Paul, and one he is very serious about. Five years ago he spent the night in the ER getting his heart reset. Paul was having a relaxing night at home watching TV when he noticed his heart was fluttering off and on. The doctor gave him two options to try to fix it, medications to try to get it back into a normal rhythm, or hook up the defibrillator. When he opted for the shock, they put the defibrillator pads on and did it...but it didn't work.
"I looked up at my wife, her eyes were tearing up. That was the moment I knew my life going forward was going to be different. My lifestyle wasn't much different from anyone else I knew. I had the normal work & family stress, didn't sleep enough, drank a lot of coffee, binge drank at happy hours, ate what I thought was healthy foods and exercised occasionally. For my body, this wasn't good enough. They tried the defibrillator again and luckily this time it worked, everything went back to normal and has been perfectly fine since. Several cardiologist visits and a multitude of tests later I was told my heart was perfectly healthy. I just wasn't taking care of myself. That experience changed my life. I felt this overwhelming sense of responsibility to fix myself and have never felt or been in better shape in my life. And if I can do it, you can too."
Paul will create a sustainable plan, something that you can do for the rest of your life, that is educational and will get results. He is all about making people feel comfortable about achieving their goals because he has experienced this struggle first hand and discovered how ignorant he was about his health. Nutrition and fitness have become a passion because it also allows him to be more active doing more things like playing ice hockey and cycling; he hopes that other people will become more healthy so that they can discover new parts of themselves and more activities they enjoy.
