I believe in the concept of biochemical individuality- simply put, this means we are all unique individuals and there are no 'one size fits all' diet solutions. What's right for me may not be right for you. However, I believe all beneficial diets are made up of nutrient dense, whole foods, preferably organic and non GMO, prepared with care.
I believe information is our friend, and we can all learn better ways to support and sustain our health. I rely on evidence based nutritional information. Understanding how the systems of the body function is essential to choosing how to support our nutrition needs. Also, you can eat the best diet in the world, but if your body's systems aren't functioning, such as digestion or blood sugar regulation, you will still be suffering blocks to optimal health.
I believe the body has an innate wisdom and is always striving to be in balance, no matter what we throw at it. I believe weight loss and increased health are a result of balancing the body through appropriate diet and lifestyle changes.
I don't believe in counting calories, portion control, or processed and packaged nutritional solutions. I believe it is not how much we eat, but WHAT we are eating that can cause the frustration of not being at your desired weight. I believe food is good and pleasurable and wonderful, and I believe in a philosophy of abundance, and of satisfying nourishment. I believe it's easier to make changes with an ally than without, and I'd love to be an ally in your nutrition journey.
