Did you know that you could be eating all the kale in the world and still be unhealthy?
That is why during my coaching sessions I focus on what IIN calls “Primary Food”. I practice a holistic approach to health and wellness which means that I look at how all areas of your life are connected.
Does stress at work or at home cause you to overindulge? Does lack of sleep or low energy levels prevent you from exercising regularly? These are just some of the questions we might explore together as we look at how not just food but also your level of physical activity, relationships and even spirituality can affect your health as a whole.
I firmly believe that diets don’t work and there is not one style of eating that is suitable for every body. As a health coach, I do not dwell on calories or grams of carbohydrates, fats, and proteins. Neither do I create lists of restrictions or “good” and “bad” foods. Instead, I work with my clients to gradually crowd out things like sugary snacks and processed foods void of nutritional value by adding in more organic, whole foods that can support and sustain a happy, healthy and balanced life.
Some of the topics we might cover in our sessions:
- how to incorporate more fruits and vegetables into your family’s diet
