**UPDATE: With the arrival of our new baby this Fall, I am no longer accepting new clients at this time. If you would like to be added to my waiting list, you can email me and I’ll be sure to let you know when I am accepting clients again.
About my health coaching services:
I received my training from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, where I was trained in more than one hundred dietary theories and studied a variety of practical lifestyle coaching methods. I have also trained in Intelligent Detox Counseling with Clinical Nutritionist and Detox Expert, Natalia Rose, author of The Raw Food Detox Diet. Drawing on this knowledge, I will help you create a completely personalized “road map to health” that suits your unique body, lifestyle, preferences, and goals.
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 your job or in your relationship cause you to overeat? Does lack of sleep or low energy prevent you from exercising? As we work together, we will look at how all parts of your life affect your health as a whole.
My approach is not to dwell on calories, carbs, fats, and proteins. It is not to create lists of restrictions or good and bad foods. Instead, I work with my clients to create a happy, healthy life in a way that is flexible, fun and rewarding.
“I can’t even begin to list what I have learned from this! I just am feeling so good about myself and the direction my body is going – and I honestly can’t say I have had that feeling for so long. Thank you so much Megan for doing this at a rate that I, a poor graduate student, could afford. I have learned a ton, and am so grateful. I always loved your recipes and your posts that featured your eats for the day – but just never really understood how to make it apply to ME. I am learning to pre-make and plan snacks and meals, finding out what things I really enjoy that are new to me, and just loving how happy I am. I remember last year in the fall adding myself to your email list to find out when you would be taking on new clients, and I’m pretty sure I bugged you in the comments too It was totally worth it! Thank you again for teaching me a new way of living. You were always great at answering my questions so quickly and not making me feel silly for asking any of them. I would recommend this to anyone who is interested!” -Kim
“Even though I knew a lot about eating healthy before I started the program, I didn’t necessarily put it into practice. These 8 weeks helped me to focus and really start doing the right thing. For me the most astonishing thing is that I am not craving anything. I’m not looking to run out tonight and eat a pizza or something. It’s not even in my “stomach thoughts.” Ha! I wasn’t eating a lot of processed foods before, but now I’m not eating any! (except for chocolate, goat cheese and sprouted grain bread). I can’t even imagine eating something made in a factory, or an animal that didn’t get the respect it deserved or the extra sugar in bottled drinks or cleaning with the usual chemicals. I’ve printed out some charts to tell me what is in season and I want to eat based on that as much as I can. Thanks for this Megan. I had fun.” -Heather
“I just wanted to also say that I really loved the program. Having a goal for the week really helped… and I definitely plan on repeating the weeks again to help stay on track and get more benefits. Before the program, I thought I was fairly healthy, but I realized how I was eating a lot of “healthy” packaged foods and not enough veggies, that really are not that nutritious. The first few weeks my body had a hard time adjusting… that goes to show how much it needed the change! Also, the information about toxins and reducing them in our personal and cleaning products was very interesting! After the program I feel like I have a much better idea on how to feed myself with good nutrients. It was surprising how easy (and quick to prepare) it can be to fill up on meals primarily (or entirely) made of veggies without feeling like I’m just eating raw carrot sticks. (And even those dipped in the tahini dressing are yummy!) I know I still have changes to make…the next one is really looking at sugar, but I feel so much better now and was really glad to be a part of the program!” -Anon
“This program has been a big help to me the last couple months. I feel like I was pretty healthy before I started this program but have still learned SO much about various topics and ways to improve upon what I had already learned. I have picked up some basic guidelines that are practical things which can be easily incorporated into anyone’s lifestyle that will end up being HUGE benefits in the long run. Thanks so much for all your hard work, the PDF, and being willing to answer any and all of our questions. It has been wonderful being able to get advice from someone I trust.” -Alyssa
