The most important thing you need to know about me is that I’m not a typical nutritionist.
I haven’t spent my life as a foodie. I didn’t grow up loving vegetables or living on an organic farm. Actually, until I was 25 I barely ate them. My diet was entirely processed, full of sugar, and not exactly health promoting.
(Note from my parents – vegetables and healthy food were all over my house, I just chose to eat peanut butter and Froot Loops instead)
While I could happily overlook my veggies, what I couldn’t ignore was that I constantly felt awful; an unwell feeling that nobody could seem to figure out. It was a mystery that could no longer go unsolved. I needed to figure out what was going on, and I needed to make a change.
Luckily for me, I love a good puzzle.
Bit by bit, I started to make changes in the way I ate and the way I lived. I won’t lie to you, change wasn’t easy. I am stubborn. I lack willpower. I move slowly and fight every change. Fists out, punching all the way.
But I did it. It took some time to figure it out, but I did it. Through my stubbornness and missing willpower I learned a lot, and I found ways to make change happen...even for the most stubborn and resistant of us.
This is how I help my clients today. I really love teaching people everything I've learned throughout my journey. I help teach them the skills they need to solve their own puzzle. I help them learn how to make change through small, simple practices that barely feel like change at all.
This isn’t about a huge overhaul to your diet, often you hardly notice the difference in your life at all, but slowly it creates real change. For most it won’t happen overnight, but I promise you, it lasts.
I can say with confidence - if I can do it, anyone can. My goal is to help you realize this and give you the tools you need to solve your own puzzle. If you suffer from digestives issues (my favourite puzzle), have seemingly unrelated symptoms that other’s can’t quite figure out, or are overwhelmed by where to start (but really want to!), we might just be a match made in heaven.
