I believe that all areas of life are inter-connected, and play an important role in health and wellness. Rather than focusing on counting calories, carbohydrates, fats, proteins or providing lists of what is good and bad, I prefer that my clients find their nutritional needs. Of course, keeping in mind that these are dynamic and depend on life phases, climate, genetics, physical fitness and demand, etc.
As your Integrative Nutrition health coach I will guide you to explore why some foods make you feel better than others and how to use that information to strategically improve your health and wellness. My work is based on the premise that each one of us is the best specialist on her/himself. As we work together, you will develop a greater understanding of how your options and actions work towards a clear mind, inner balance and optimization of physical potential..
Integrative nutrition plate: This plate demonstrates the importance of whole and fresh foods and water. Use this plate as an example of proportions of each food group and relative portion sizes. Around the plate are important lifestyle principles that are also essential for your health. I will introduce you to some of the healthiest foods on the planet and help you find what works for you.
Crowding out: Many nutrition experts believe in giving their clients lists of restricted foods, which is why many people feel negatively about nutritional science. My approach is very different- I believe that by eating healthy food you will feel fuller and have less cravings for unhealthy food.Basically, you can “crowd out” nutritionally empty food. Although this may take some time to optimize, it will no doubt have a huge positive impact on your health
Bio-individuality: Each one of us has unique nutritional and lifestyle needs, which is why many fashionable diets don’t work long term. Based on this principle, I will support you to make personalized positive changes exclusively based on your needs, lifestyle and preferences which will help you to reach your best health.
Deconstructing cravings: Your cravings should not be ignored, as they provide important insight into what your body needs. By deconstructing cravings, you will recover balance and harmony in your life
Primary food: Our health and well being is not exclusively based on what we eat, since a number of other factors such as relationships, career, physical activity, and spirituality are also essential. When this “primary food” is out of balance, what we eat also becomes out of whack, that is, we start to live to eat and not the other way around. I can help you find balance and live a full and inspiring life.
Food quality: Foods have various properties and qualities, depending on their nature, where and how they were cultivated and prepared. When we eat, we assimilate nutrients and energy from our food. I will help you learn about foods and how they affect you.
