Healthy eating is about treating yourself well…not punishing or strictly adhering to a diet theory. Honor your body with primary foods that feed your soul as well as your body and mind. Learn how to plan ahead to create and maintain optimum health by expanding your range of healthy food choices.

There is no way to get in shape with wishful thinking. It takes a solid nutritional plan, workout regimen and time. Nothing worth having happens overnight!

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 cause you to overeat? Does lack of sleep or low energy prevent you from exercising? As we work together, we will look at how all parts of your life affect your health as a whole. 

Together we’ll work to reach your health goals in areas such as achieving optimal weight, reducing food cravings, increasing sleep, and maximizing energy. As we work together, you’ll develop a deeper understanding of the food and lifestyle choices that work best for you and implement lasting changes that will improve your energy, balance and health.

Here are some concepts that we will explore during our work together:

Bio-individuality™: The concept of bio-individuality is that each person 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 ancestral background. I use a personalized, holistic approach to ensure that you will have great success!

Primary Food™: It’s easy to overlook all of the things that contribute to our sense of nourishment and fulfillment. It’s not just the food we eat, but all of the other factors present in our daily lives. Healthy relationships, a fulfilling career, regular physical activity and a spiritual awareness are essential forms of nourishment. When these “primary foods” are balanced, what you eat becomes secondary. I will support you in achieving all of your goals, from eating the right foods for your body to living an inspired, fulfilling life.

Integrative Nutrition™ Plate: The Integrative Nutrition Plate emphasizes the importance of local and organic produce, whole grains, high-quality proteins, plant-based fats, and water. It shows you how a plate should appear at mealtime and emphasizes the importance of proportions and portion size. To complete the picture, the plate is surrounded with lifestyle factors that create optimal health: relationship, career, physical activity and spirituality. I’ll introduce you to some of the healthiest foods on the planet and teach you how to find what’s healthiest for your unique body!

Nutrition – abs are made in the kitchen. If you are exercising hard but not losing that belly, chances are you are eating the wrong foods at the wrong times in the wrong amounts.

Label reading  – the ingredients on the side are listed first-last by their concentration. So if high-fructose corn syrup is the first listed on the label, it’s the most abundant ingredient.

Resistance training – Cardio, Pilates and whole-body workouts are excellent methods to raise your metabolism. Change your sequence and routine every few weeks so your body does not become accustomed to the workouts.

Adequate rest is the ideal method for repair and regeneration of tissue. It allows your body time to replenish stores, heal damaged tissues and prepare you to be ready for the alarm clock tomorrow.
