Frequently Asked Questions.
What is intuitive Eating?
Intuitive eating is listening closely to your body cues and following them when choosing when, what and how much to eat. Many of us have ignored our cues for years and are not sensitive to them anymore. I will walk you through getting back in tune with your body.
What is health at every size (haes)?
Health at Every Size is the pursuit of health, regardless of weight. The research study revealed that women who focused on eating well based on internal cues, moving and enjoying life had better health markers and higher self esteem than women on traditional diets, without losing weight. This model shows us that we can enjoy our food, live vibrant lives and be at our best health, without dieting or restricting ourselves. Let me show you how.
Do you provide meal plans?
Meal plans tend to put too many limits on what we can and cannot eat. Meal plans put your options in a box. I do provide nutrition education and meal guidance, without specifying what foods and amounts you can eat at each meal. I would like for you to let your body tell you that.
*Meal plans are provided to athletes, as needed.
Why is child/adolescent nutrition a specialized field?
Being a child athlete is not easy! There are many factors that affect how much and what kinds of foods each child needs: how old they are, what stage of development they are in, how much they weigh and how tall they are and what the training day looks like. What students eat before and after training, as well as timing are key elements to consider. Their needs differ day by day. It can be a challenge for parents to keep up with the changes and provide the right nutrition each day. I will provide support in this area, helping to make it as easy as possible to provide the right foods and amounts each day.
How nutrition counseling can help your child: Proper nutrition and hydration can help prevent injuries, fuel optimum performance, help with focus, and ensure that each child has enough fuel to train AND grow at at healthy rate.
