Feel Good Nutrition

 

Every individual is unique and has special needs, desires and goals. What we all have in common though, is that at the root of each and every goal, is the desire to feelbetter. The only reason we ever want whatever it is that we want (a new job, new relationship, more money or weight loss) is because we believe we will feel better in the having of it.  In my world, the goal I hear most often is weight loss to "be healthy" or to "feel better". Many people try achieving this in a way that is restrictive, unpleasant and miserable! Sounds kind of backwards huh? The "Feel Good Approach" take emphasis off of weight loss and shifts the focus to making healthy behavior changes. By focusing on other measures of health such as sleep, energy, digestion and mood, we can improve all aspects of health while feeling good in the process.   The feel good approach provides accountability, consistency and structure. It's been proven that it takes 66 days to make lasting behavior change. That's where my 3-month programs come in. Whether you need a lifestyle reboot, guidance for athletic performance, or are looking to ease symptoms of anxiety, depression or other mental illnesses, you're only 66 days away from an improved you!

Initial Consultation

60 Minutes

This hour long sessions start with a short mental and physical self-assessment where you will rank measures of health that have nothing to do with the scale. You will rate your stress levels, digestion, sleep quality, energy levels and more to get a broaded look at your current state of health. With a focus on feeling good and making healthy behavior changes, Lauren likes to use this to measure progress in ways that do not involve a scale. We will then take a comprehensive look at your lifestyle, preferences and goals while reviewing your medical and social history. By the end of this session, we will devise a treatment plan tailored to your individual needs.

The work I do with my clients is meant to enhance quality of life, improve health and reduce stress. I know that making time for doctors visits and other appointments can be challenging. For that reason, I offer hours outside the typical 9-5 and offer both in-person and virtual sessions via FaceTime or phone call.
