Your clients are frustrated and confused

At this point, they feel like they should have a Ph.D. in nutrition with all the hours and time (and money!) they’ve put in. 

They’ve done all the diets, read the books, and listened to all the podcasts… yet here they are: struggling to lose weight, feeling like crap in the gym, and losing that day-to-day energy to thrive.

They are frustrated. Why can’t they just put all the pieces together? Shouldn’t they be good at this by now? These are the common challenges I hear from my clients all the time… 

DIET CHALLENGE #1

There’s so much information out there. Just when you think you understand what to do, a research study comes out proving the opposite (is meat healthy this year or not?). They just want to know what works.

DIET CHALLENGE #2

Everything works… but not forever. They saw great results with Paleo, or low-carb, or macros, but then stalled. How many more diets do they have to do to actually get the results they want?

DIET CHALLENGE #3

Diets never work in real life. Sure, those perfectly balanced meals work great when you have eight hours of meal prep. But is there anything that is flexible enough to withstand unpredictable schedules, vacations, and eating cake at their kid’s birthday party?

DIET CHALLENGE #4

They don’t want to be a slave to the food scale. Ugh!! Does it really have to be this complicated? Weighing and measuring gets exhausting. They would love to find a long-term system without the scale.

DIET CHALLENGE #5

Their efforts in the gym just aren’t adding up. They spend all this time working out and it doesn’t seem to be paying off. They want their body to reflect all the hard work they do.

Here's What My Clients Say About the Process... and Yours Can, Too!

There's no hacks, no gimmicks, EC is not trying to sell you something. Instead, the Masterclass gives you a formula to figure out what exactly works for you.

You're going to get a mindset shift and the permission to not be so dogmatic and rigid. Check your assumptions at the door and let the process work.

It's a game changer. You walk away with your own customized nutrition plan. I feel so much more empowered to know what to feed myself.

"There are 10 Principles of Nutrition that answer why Keto works, why Paleo works, why Whole30 works, and most important... how to determine an optimal plan for the individual."

Many of your clients have tried diets based on elimination and junk science – but they aren't sustainable.

Say hello to the knowledge that actually works!

Hi, I’m EC (Eva Claire) Synkowski. I’ve worked as a fitness or nutrition coach for over 20 years. I have a Masters in Human Nutrition & Functional Medicine, am a Certified Nutrition Specialist®, and a Certified CrossFit Level 4 Coach (CF-L4). 

What’s important to you is that I packed my education and coaching expertise into a proven diet program backed by real science that you experience with me by your side every step of the way.

Sorting out the “BS” from the truth is my trademark in the coaching industry. 

I help clients reset eating habits with realistic goals to improve their fitness and health without the stress of “doing it right” or overly restrictive elimination diets.

I also teach coaches how to teach clients nutrition. What are the sustainable and effective ways to create client change?

And my Masterclass is designed as a course with coaching; I am there every step of the way so that you get your questions answered.

A Lasting Plan for Your Clients

"I Feel Good About My Diet And It's Sustainable"

Introducing the

Three Pillars Method Masterclass

Help your clients ditch the diet cycle with this proven 7-week video-based course plus a live-group coaching program that forever replaces diet fads with a consistent and sustainable way to eat.  

How the Three Pillars Method Masterclass Works

She makes it simple and doable.

Part 1

LEARN THE THEORY

The 10 Principles of Nutrition

These are the irrefutable truths in nutrition. You will learn how all diets work from physiological to psychological factors.  

This foundational information will provide the framework of the “why” behind the Three Pillars Method approach (and really behind the results of ANY diet). Get started on this as soon as you register.

Part 2

THE THREE PILLARS METHOD

The No BS Diet Progression

This is how to apply all that theoretical knowledge. We walk through the Three Pillars Method: establishing 1) Quality, 2) Protein, and 3) Calories in your diet. You get the advanced level of the methods that can be used with your clients, as well as the tips for running the program with varying groups of levels and experience.

Pillar 1 QUALITY

Time and time again high-quality diets are associated with greater longevity and quality of life. The first pillar of the diet focuses on adding enough fruits and veggies to the diet to set the baseline of "quality." This phase heavily leans on the popular #800gChallenge® but also adds diet analysis to understand its relative contribution to one's whole diet.

Pillar 2 PROTEIN

You learn how to add the right level of protein (meat or plant-based). We keep the focus on addition, not elimination, to get the weight, health, and fitness goals cleints are after (yes, protein benefits all three goals!). This phase uses the principles of the Lazy Macros® diet but with data analysis to determine better and worse choices for one's goals.

Pillar 3 CALORIES

This is the most eye-opening phase of the program. We weigh and measure everything for a period of time to finally discover exactly why one's diet is out of sync with one's goals. This helps individuals figure out personalized calories (and macros) to reach your goals that account for your genetics, activity level, and preferences, all while uncovering the mistakes they've made to date.

Personalization

After one completes the Three Pillars Method, they can now create a forever plan to reach their individual goals. We will also learn how to tweak one's diet as goals and weight change... without needing a mathematics degree from MIT. And we will discuss when can one stop weighing & measuring and what tools to use to sustain a new eating plan for life.

This stuff just works.

Part 3

COACHING THE THREE PILLARS METHOD

Learn the realistic progression for clients

While you go through the Three Pillars method yourself, you’ll also have live weekly calls regarding how to coach the process. Going through the progression yourself is essential to understand your client’s experience as well as provide the “reps” of the client questions that will surface. But in addition, each phase has corresponding coach-specific information regarding client compliance, pitfalls, and program implementation. 

INCLUDED

LIVE GROUP COACHING

Community App & Live Q&A Calls

Half of the program is a video course you watch on your own time according to a weekly schedule. The other half are live calls to discuss coaching-specific issues, as well any Q&A going through the process yourself. To help with questions in real-time, the group coaching occurs via the:

Be it in the App or on a live call, you will get your questions answered. EC personally responds to all questions 3x each week day.

Thank you for being sooooo responsive.

If you want a proven system to deliver weight, health, and fitness results - this is for you!

Check out some of the SPECIAL TOPICS included

CALORIES IN, CALORIES OUT REVISITED

Is my metabolism damaged? What about hormones?
This section contains SO many of the common questions you will receive. Half-truths in the media distract and stall your client's progress. Learn the science behind the claims so you can help them stay on track with what works.

FUELING PERFORMANCE

What about timing? What about pre-workout?
Most coaches in this course are working with fitness-minded clients and inevitably they want to know about the post-workout protein shakes, electrolytes, and carb cycling. This section outlines nutrition specifics for performance goals.

EXPECTATIONS & PROGRESS

When are you going to see results?
How long does it take to lose weight? How long until my back squat goes up? Setting realistic expectations is half the battle with clients. In a word full of quick fixes and false promises, you need to help clients with a mindset shift to reality.

SUPPLEMENTS

What is the evidence for – and against them?
Many want to do everything but the diet changes that work. Learn about the Recommended Dietary Allowance levels, if you can get them from food, supplement regulation, contamination, and effectiveness all in this module.

HOW THIS WORKS

COACHES COURSE OVERVIEW

This is a video-based course with enough flexibility regardless of your schedule and timezone.

Keep up with a weekly video schedule. Then ask EC questions at ANY time in a community App and attend live calls (1 hour/week, a playback is made available). It’s a time committment averages to ~2 hours/week.

You go through the process yourself to gain the perspective of your client, while also getting the education on HOW to coach clients.

  • Pre-Work (Mar 8 - Mar 15)

  • Pillar 3 Calories (Apr 7 - Apr 17)

    This is the hardest phase in which we weigh everything we eat to understand our total calories and macros. This phase lasts 10 days and ends with a data analysis that gives one the personalized info of what is working – and isn't.

Join me in the Three Pillars Method Masterclass for Coaches.
Learn the No-BS process that Just Works.

I’ve quite literally done it all. Paleo, macros, low-carb, intermittent fasting, and yes, even the potato hack diet.

I didn’t understand why there could be so many different diets and rules all with success for … some people. But, where was my “optimal” diet?

So, I dug in. I got a Master’s degree in Nutrition and went on to become a Licensed Dietitian Nutritionist. I wanted an evidence-based, science-backed system approach to what really works. Not the hacks, gimmicks, and social-media-filtered tips and false promises.

This Masterclass is the result. I developed my 10 Principles as the framework to understand physiological and psychological truths (the “why”). And then the Three Pillars Method to put that knowledge into place (the “how”). It’s not a diet; it’s a way develop a diet plan to adhere to 

It’s a proven system I’ve used with hundreds of my own clients, and you can use for yours as well. Help them ditch the gimmicks, hacks, and junk science for a sustainable, forever plan.

"FINALLY! A source of actual scientific, honest information relating to food. Highly recommend if you often get confused about what to believe & have weight goals you’re trying to achieve.”

"I've been trying to lose those post-wedding 10 pounds... and I just celebrated my 15th anniversary. With this Masterclass, I lost them in under 11 weeks.”

"The only danger of taking this course is you may actually start thinking for yourself, stop following the latest fad, and never pay for another nutrition coach or dieting plan. EC cuts through so much dieting information. I wish I received this 11 years ago."

Meredith N.

Masterclass Student

“This course is what I’ve been looking for for YEARS. What stands out to me is your common sense, holistic approach (love the ‘it’s not just one thing’ idea), and perhaps most of all, that you are neutral and agnostic to any particular belief system.”

Melanie S.

Masterclass Student

I have been counting macros for a while but the three pillars approach was the real eye opener for me. I have more brain power, more patience, more energy in general (and energy is more stable throughout the day) but also more energy for training.. and that is really awesome!!! There is no sense of deprivation for me anymore, I feel nourished and healthy. The time investment is totally worth it.

Phyllis T.

Masterclass Student

"This process has worked well for me. I'm maintaining my weight, shifted my body composition, and improved my performance in training. These can be seen by people around me. This course coincided with the strength cycle, and I saw improvements in performance tests at the end. I will definitely keep the principles close in my nutrition journey."

Seth S.
Seth S.

Masterclass Student

"I have dropped 8 pounds since the start of the course, which is the most movement I have seen in the past few years. More importantly, I understand why I am moving toward my goals and how to stay on the right path. Most importantly, my mindset has changed... The permission to drop the excess weight slowly and without going hungry to me is a key of sustainability."

Ammie S.

Masterclass Student

"Your teaching has literally transformed how I view nutrition, not just from a weight loss/maintenance aspect but I think even more importantly by transforming how I think through the decisions to be made surrounding food. Your insights on what's necessary, sustainable, healthy, and effective have been waaaaaaaay more help than all the books, 30-days, and 'secrets' that have been the mainstay of the nutrition space for as long as I can remember."

Frequently Asked Questions

Your fellow coaches and healthcare practitioners ask

The intent was to provide enough flexibility regardless of schedule or timezone, while still getting coaching support throughout the program. Much of the course is video based you watch on your own time according to a group schedule. You can ask questions at any time in the Community App, and/or attend live calls for questions (with playbacks available).

For the Spring 2023 group, the live Q&A calls are Wed @2:15P EST and Thurs @7:15PM EST. These are largely dedicated to discussing coaching considerations and answering Q&A. Playbacks are made available.

The total video content is 14 hours. This averages to 2 hours a week. You choose how much additional time is spent interacting in the Community app. There is also additional time to prep and track food, which is highly variable from person to person due to experience with weighing and measuring, as well as meal preferences.

Yes. The course uses the Cronometer (Gold membership) for food data collection and analysis. This costs an additional ~$8.99/month (although prices and deals change regularly). You can also choose another app, but we are not responsible for whether necessary features exist. You will also need a digital food scale, measuring cups, and measuring spoons.

No. Not only have I had coaches walk away with new “numbers,” there is something to be said for doing the process yourself. You have to go through something first-hand if you expect to teach it.

This program works for everyone! You and your clients customize your own meal plans based on which foods you eat. Vegetarians and vegans will use plant-based proteins to hit your targets.

When you register for a live coaching group, the course starts and ends on the posted dates. You have ~2 months of coaching access (Mar 13 – Apr 29). After that, you have continued access to the course videos. 

After enrolling, you have unlimited access to this course for as long as it’s on the platform from which you purchased it (Teachable).

If you are unsatisfied with your purchase, contact us in the first 14 days of purchase and we will give you a full refund. No questions asked, but also no exceptions after this timeframe.

Keep checking back for the next enrollment date!

No. Upon registration you have immediate access to the Pre-Work. You must get through the pre-work to gain access to the live coaching group. Remaining content is dripped ~1 week prior to when it’s needed. This allows for plenty of flexibility while also keeping the group relatively on the same page.

Yes, it has been pre-approved for CrossFit. You may be able to petition other organizations (and the course outline and learning objectives are available).

The Three Pillars Method Masterclass (Coaches) is recognized by the CrossFit Certification Department to offer continuing education for Certified CrossFit Trainers. This program has been approved for 14 CEUs of General Professional Development.
