- What is a health coach?
A health coach is a professional who not only educates you about how food generates chemical reactions in your body, but also facilitates healthy, sustainable behavior by teaching you to listen to your inner wisdom and your body’s messages. Your coach is a guide and mentor, helping your transform personal goals into an action plan for success.
- Are the coaches trained by Rorie?
Yes. All of the health coaches under the full 'n free program have certification in health coaching. Rorie has personally trained each coach in effective techniques for guiding clients to a full 'n free lifestyle.
- Is FNF a weight-loss program?
Many people do lose weight as a result of getting on the road to being full n free. However, weight loss is not the primary goal of the program. What we often explain to clients is that by making lifestyle choices that feel right for your body, and keeping up a consistently healthy pattern of behavior, your body is likely to lose weight and stabilize at a natural weight that is healthy for you.
- Will I be given a food plan?
No. A full 'n free journey involves making healthy food choices, but there are no absolutes and required restrictions or eliminations. Once you are informed and educated about how foods affect your body, and you become in tune to your body’s reaction to certain foods, you may chose to eliminate things that are affecting you negatively. You will make informed choices based on your own unique bodily systems, rather than being told what you may or may not eat and when.
- Is full 'n free a diet?
No. A diet is a method of losing weight, reaching an ideal number on the scale. Most often, people can adhere to a diet for only a period of time before returning to their pre-diet food choices and behaviors. Being full 'n free is a way of life and a new mindset. You will learn to be captain of the ship, as opposed to the “dieting” crew, which scurry around, mindlessly following orders. While living full 'n free, you will consciously consider if certain foods, behaviors and habits are right for your body, mind, and way of life. With the right support, you will make choices, learn and grow from mistakes, and continue on a journey of self-development for a lifetime.
- Can’t I just meet with a coach once or twice? Why do I need a Complete program?
Truly comprehensive, long lasting, change takes time. Isolated coaching sessions do not provide the follow-up support necessary. That’s why the Complete program is a 6-week system designed to keep you on track on your full 'n free journey. Rories weekly Q&A workshop and the social support of the FNF chats also help optimize your experience. The Complete program combines active individualized coaching, and the social support that helps you stay motivated. Together, these elements create the Complete full 'n free experience that results in lasting changes for our clients.
- How do I continue developing my full 'n free lifestyle after the six-week Complete program?
Full 'n free is not just a program; it’s a community. Our FNF family is comprised of like- minded individuals who can share their successes and challenges while learning about what their minds and bodies really need. The FNF Family Whatsapp group gives our clients the ability to connect with each other, with Rorie, and with the health coaches once the program ends. Additionally, Rorie hosts a weekly live Instagram stream to answer questions and discuss issues that have been brought up on the chat. We also offer a maintenance follow-up package, so you can always have additional sessions with your coach if the need arises.
- I want to include working out in my full 'n free program. How can I incorporate exercising in a balanced, healthy and productive way?
Full 'n free Fitness is a coaching program that helps you choose exercises and activities that will be a fun, fulfilling and consistent part of your life. You will determine realistic fitness goals and achieve them in a way that respects your body. Goals can include stamina, energy, endurance, strength, mobility, balance, flexibility, cardiovascular conditioning, and weight loss. You will be able to experience an individualized workout plan and weekly schedule, designed just for you! Watch yourself transform into an educated and inspired exercise enthusiast, and enjoy the mental, emotional and physical benefits that come along with your new lifestyle.
- I’ve become aware of a whole host of unhealthy habits—not all food related—which are really affecting my mood, relationships, and even my career. Where can I get help with that?
Our life coaching program, full 'n free Living, was designed with this need in mind. Full 'n free living can help you overcome obstacles in life and change destructive habits that hold you back from the full, satisfying, relationships you want. Our life coach will serve as a mentor and guide as you explore your inner self, discover what you truly hope for, and develop a plan to reach those goals.
- There are certain times of the year when I find it hard to make great choices that are in sync with my health goals. Where can I find inspiration and information to help me through these times?
Rorie’s workshops each address a unique and challenging situation. Available for download right here on the website, these seasonal full 'n free workshops will leave you empowered to overcome obstacles with ease.
- What Bracha do I make on the products baked using the mixes?
While all halachic questions should be directed to your Rabbi, the Rorie’s Original Gluten Free Oat Dough Mix, Rories Low Carb Gluten Free Oat Dough Mix and the Egg Free Spelt Mix are Hamotzi.
Rorie’s Gluten and Grain Free Dough Mix is Shehakol. Certain baked goods made with the Hamotzi mixes, such as mandelbread or chocolate chip cookies, are mezonos
- What size should a roll be to wash?
According to the Halachic ruling of our Rabbi, a roll has to be a kezayis to wash, make a bracha, and Bentch. A kezayis is a roll that is 2 oz. after being baked, or 2.2 oz raw. In order to ensure that your baked roll is 2 oz, use a piece of dough that is a minimum of 2.2 oz before baking.
- Are the mixes available outside of the United States?
As of now the answer is no. You can find a list of locations that carry my mixes on my website. However if you are not in one of these locations, you can order the mixes on Amazon or at the full 'n free store right on the website.
- I have heard that there are bakers that sell your baked goods. What is your affiliation with them?
There are bakers and bakeries that use my mix to bake gluten and grain free products. However, full 'n free has no affiliation with these bakers and cannot vouch for the ingredients they use or the hashgacha of their products.
- What is the difference between the Original Gluten Free Mix and the Low Carb Gluten Free Mix?
- Is the Grain and Gluten Free Mix also low-carb?
Yes! With no grains, and only 8 grams of carbohydrates, it’s even lower carb than the low-carb mix! This bread is not hamotzei; the bracha is shehakol.
- How is your Spelt Mix different than other spelt flour products I can purchase?
The spelt flour in Rorie’s mix is combined with coconut flour, which makes the bread moister and higher in fiber than typical spelt bread. As a result, your spelt-challah will not dry out quickly after cutting, the way that most spelt breads do. Additionally, this recipe is unique in that it can be prepared egg-free.
- Which mixes can I use if I’m allergic to nuts?
If you have a nut allergy, both the Original Gluten Free Mix and the Spelt Mix can work for you. Neither contains nuts.
- Which mixes can I use if I’m allergic to eggs?
The Low Carb and Grain-Free mixes contain egg white protein powder, so they should be avoided if you have an egg allergy. You can use the Original Gluten Free or the Spelt Mix. When you prepare the dough, replace the eggs with a “flax egg” mixture.
To prepare a “flax egg” mixture:
Combine 1/3 Cup Golden ground flaxmeal, 1/3 Cup water, and 2 Tablespoons of applesauce
The flax egg mixture replaces the equivalent of 2 eggs.
