IS THIS FOR PEOPLE WHO WANT TO LOSE WEIGHT ONLY?
Not necessarily. Yes, I specialize in body weight and body composition management, but it is not limited to that. Weight loss and body composition goals are not met simply just to be met, but are achieved to simultaneously support each individual's life goals. For some it could be running a triathlon, others just want to have the energy and to ability play with their kids for life, and the list goes on. Most people have a distorted view of food and an unhealthy relationship with eating. Contrary to popular belief, even those who have a "healthy" body weight/body composition need help in breaking the chains and being liberated from the power food that food has had over them for so long.
YOU USED TO BE A SPORTS DIETITIAN AND SPORTS PERFORMANCE COACH. I AM NOT AN ATHLETE OR A FOOTBALL PLAYER, HOW CAN YOU HELP ME?
Due to the training regiments and schedules of athletes, it is more challenging as a coach to meet their nutritional demands. Many people talk about the incredible development of athletes in regards to body composition. I am looking forward to bringing the same cutting edge nutrition and exercise science to the general public to experience similar results. The skills and experience I gained from working in these high-demand environments has prepared me to serve all types of populations. In fact, I specialize in deeper rooted issues, such as body image, disordered eating, and eating disorders that both males and females battle. Without addressing these deeper issues, I know that even the most elite and practical meal plans won't work. As an RD, the process I use for athletes is the same as anyone else. We get down to the root of why you aren't meeting your goals and then prescribe appropriate nutrition and exercise plans/programs to meet your individual needs.Coaching and counseling is necessary to zero in on someones nutritional and exercise needs, but also to provide professional solutions to help break down barriers and roadblocks along the way.
