I’m so happy to finally be able to offer a number of nutrition services! Many people figure out which physical activities work best for them but struggle to find the perfect balance with healthier eating. Physical activity and healthy eating go hand in hand so without the right balance of both, you will struggle to reach your maximum potential.

No worries though I am here to help! My goal is to help you make healthier eating a lifestyle instead of a temporary solution.

Here’s the details on the nutrition services I currently offer:

Nutrition Counseling

One-on-one counseling to discuss nutritional concerns and to assess individual nutrient needs.

  • During your initial counseling session I will assess current eating habits, physical activity, health and medical history. Then we will review your current nutrition goals while working to set new SMART goals. Calorie needs will then be determined and tailored nutrition recommendations will be provided.

  • Follow up sessions are available as needed to review progress and reassess/modify goals as needed.

3-Day Diet Analysis

  • Your 3 day food log will be analyzed to determine actual calorie and nutrient intakes. These values will then be compared to your own estimated energy needs to identify areas of over and/or under consumption.

  • In depth analysis counseling is available for an additional fee.

Pantry Clean Up (available in Raleigh, Durham, and Greensboro, NC only)

  • I will come clean out your pantry and refrigerator to get rid of unhealthy options and provide education on healthier options to add.

  • All unopened food items will be donated to the local food bank.

Let me help you eat healthier! All out the form below for pricing and to get started. I’m looking forward to working with you soon.

Holiday Survival Tips

I can't believe it's almost January 2017! I think it is officially safe to say that time really does fly. November and December are the hardest months for me to stay on top of healthy eating and consistent physical activity. Almost every weekend I have either a birthday gathering or holiday social to attend- this means lots of food and drinks. This can also mean extra inches around the waist and/or added pounds. As always this is something I strive to avoid but it is extremely tough without a plan. 

I try to stick to the following "survival tips" each holiday season:

  1. Stay hydrated: It is important to drink as much water as you can especially when you know you will be drinking. 
  2. Go for the salad first (If there is one): Eating a salad before anything else covers your vegetable requirement and will help you eat less later. 
  3. Walk down every aisle: When shopping for gifts, walk down every aisle. Getting extra steps each day can help with weight maintenance, especially if you haven't had the time to get your regular exercise in during the week.
  4. Park in the back: Not only will this save you time and the struggle of waiting for a park, you will also be getting in some extra steps!
  5. Have only ONE dessert: This may be the hardest survival tip but it is the most important. Eating less cakes, pies, and cookies will mean less weight gain in the long run. I suggest choosing your dessert wisely- wait to see the reactions of others before deciding which dessert to choose, this will ensure you pick the best choice.

During the holiday season it is important to enjoy yourself without overindulging. It is also a good idea to start thinking now how you will bounce back from the holidays in the New Year. Begin thinking of the new goals you want to crush and start reaching to those who can help you with these goals. As always I am here if you need any assistance with your fitness and nutrition goals.
