Q:  What is Wise Nutrition Coaching?

A:  Wise Nutrition Coaching is a 12-month program that guides clients through dramatic—yet sustainable—changes in their eating and exercise habits with help from an expert coach.

We specialize in taking complex nutritional problems and breaking them down into small, strategic daily practices—small practices that are designed to fit into a busy lifestyle. Small practices that are formulated to deliver results.

Every 2 weeks you will be given a new habit to focus on. Once you have mastered this new habit you will be given an additional habit to focus on.  Each email given will be packed full of useful information helping you master this new habit and delve deeper into how and why making this change is important. You will receive daily emails making sure you stay on track and keep you accountable.  Short assignments that educate you all about nutrition, the psychology of why we eat and addressing healthy lifestyle habits such as sleep and de-stressing will be given.
