The Nutrition Counselor is a comprehensive nutritional consulting company offering private diet and lifestyle consultations dealing with disease prevention, healthy weight loss and nutritional support of those with diabetes, arthritis, heart disease, eating disorders, allergies and other diet related concerns, workshops and corporate wellness seminars.
My passion is food and healthy living and my philosophy is that improving one’s health through eating well and making a few lifestyle changes does not have to be a big deal. There are changes, both large and small that will directly impact our health and my role is to teach my clients about these changes to improve their lives. Good nutrition should be a part of daily life.
Everyone is different – when it comes to nutrition, one size does not fit all. Customized nutrition plans are developed according to each person’s needs.
Balance is key – it is important to find not only what works for you in terms of nutrition, but also in terms of lifestyle. Stress, both internal and external is the #1 cause of disease in North America and my focus is not only on healthy eating, but making sure the rest of your life is healthy too.
I do not believe in dieting or counting calories, but in eating nutrient rich foods. Fats have an important role in our diet, but healthy fats like olive oil and coconut oil. I do not believe in deprivation, but I do believe we should not be eating anything filled with chemicals, preservatives or artificial anything. Good digestion, healthy weight management, disease prevention are all achievable. Eating well is easy, convenient and does not have to be super expensive!
Eating right and exercise do not always come naturally. It is a learned process, one I have studied and one I am excited to share with my clients leading them to have more joyful, healthy and more balanced lives.
