What is a Holistic Nutritionist?
A Holistic Nutritionist is a guide and mentor who empowers you and provides ongoing support and guidance as you set goals and make sustainable changes that improve your health and happiness.
I practice a holistic approach to health and wellness, which means that I look at how all areas of your life are connected. Does stress at your job or in your relationship cause you to overeat? Does lack of sleep or low energy prevent you from exercising? I believe in looking at all parts of your health as a whole and hope to help you connect the dots.
My approach is not to dwell on calories, but rather to focus on the quality of the food you put in your body, and I want to make healthy eating easy, accessible and ridiculously delicious! I work with my clients to empower them to build a happy, healthy life in a way that is fun, rewarding and sustainable.
Together we can work to reach your health goals in areas such as achieving optimal weight, reducing food cravings, increasing sleep, and maximizing energy. My hope is to help my clients develop a deeper understanding of the food and lifestyle choices that work best for them and implement lasting changes that will improve their energy, balance and health.
With so many new diets and food trends coming out on a regular basis, it’s easy to get confused with what to eat. I simply believe in a whole food way of living. No calorie counting, no diets. Just real food. No packaged stuff, no clever marketing, only real ingredients. I have been cooking that way for a while now and love sharing my passion for real food and showing people how fun and easy it can be to eat well.
Balancing Blood Sugar
Don’t let sugar addiction trick you into thinking you lack willpower! It’s easy to feel defeated after binging on a box of chocolate cookies, but I am here to tell you; it’s not your fault. You are not lazy, weak, and neither do you lack self-discipline. The foods you binge on are DESIGNED TO BE ADDICTIVE. They literally send a signal to your brain that makes it nearly impossible to stop. By changing your diet to one that focuses on vegetables, clean fats and proteins, you are taking the first step in the direction of food freedom. Remember, the discomfort of sugar withdrawals is only temporary, but the happiness and well-being you will get from eating real food will last a lifetime.
Most often, intermittent fasting involves not eating anything after dinner and skipping breakfast the next morning. I utilize what is referred to as the 16/8 method, which involves a 16 hour window of fasting, and an 8 hour window of eating. Although IF is not always the best approach for everyone, I find it to be a very helpful tool in the context of blood sugar balancing and weight management.
Each Individual is Unique
The concept of bio-individuality is the idea that each of us has unique food and lifestyle needs. One person’s food is another person’s poison, and that’s why fad diets tend to fail in the long run. Working on the principle of bio-individuality, I’ll support you to make positive changes that are based on your unique needs, lifestyle, preferences, and perhaps even ancestral background
Reinvent your Cravings
Great news: You don’t have to give up all the foods you love, you just need to reinvent them! I want you to go through this program feeling so satisfied, you’ll never want to go back to what you were eating before! Reinventing cravings takes time, but as you free yourself from sugar addiction and eat more foods that truly nourish you, you will gain a deeper understanding of what your body truly needs.
I know from experience that nutrition can be a very overwhelming topic and I have had my fair share of challenges in that area. My goal is to help you untangle all the confusion and build a clear road map on how to get you where you want to be. Whether you are simply trying to improve your energy level, wanting tips on how to clean up your diet, or have been trying to get back to your healthy weight, we can work together to achieve that!
As your personal nutrition coach, I will give you the support that you need and hold you accountable, but most importantly I will teach you how to help yourself. I strongly believe that most of us already have the knowledge to live healthy lives and are perfectly capable of getting ourselves well, we just seem to get lost in the massive outburst of information available. I want to empower you to become your own guide and give you the tools to bring in sustainable changes to your life.
This is your chance to work one-on-one with me to talk about your health and to set some goals together so that you can have the healthy life that you deserve.
