- With so many books and popular diets out there, why should I consider nutrition coaching?
Diet regimes typically address only one part of the healthy lifestyle equation. I want to help you change the way you think about food. It isn’t just about what’s on the menu, together we are going to “make sense” of Shopping, Cooking and Eating. And…frankly, dieting isn’t much fun!
- What should I expect during the initial visit?
Together we will assess where you are at on a general health, nutritional and lifestyle basis. This information will help me to formulate a current nutritional profile for you. I will offer some easy to follow suggestions and new food ideas to get you started in the right direction.
When I get to the grocery store my mind goes blank and I don’t know what to buy, so I buy the same stuff that I always do, can you help me?
Yes! Shopping for food is a big part of building a healthy lifestyle. I will offer you some great strategies to get the most nutrition out of your trip to the grocery store.
I am a not a great cook, so I eat a lot of frozen and prepackaged food. How can I eat healthy when I don’t know how to prepare many food items?
Great question! Cooking healthy is a lot easier than you would imagine. We will cover healthy recipes and easy ways to prepare them.
Do I have to count calories?
I am much more concerned about the types of food and the nutritional value your body needs to function at it’s optimum level. Obviously too many calories is not a good thing, but our primary goal is to change the way you think about food. That’s where the name “Foodsense” comes from, I want to help you “make sense” of food.
I want to get healthy, but it’s really hard to eat right when I am away from home. Can you help me with that?
Yes, with a little knowledge and at times a little preparation, eating healthy “on the go” at work, school or out for dinner is not that hard. I will share some great tips and ideas for eating healthy away from home.
Are you one of those people selling shakes and powders?
No, my focus is on helping you build a solid nutritional foundation that is easily achievable. I can recommend Herbs and supplements, but that is not my purpose here.
I prefer the privacy of nutrition coaching in my home. Can you still help me?
Yes, I offer in home, office, phone and “Skype” consultations.
Do you accept insurance?
Unfortunately, no I don’t.
