"I love food! I like to think I eat healthily, and consider myself educated about the elements of a healthy diet. However, as I seemed to be “stuck” at maintaining my weight and fitness levels, I felt it was time to re-examine how I was eating for my age and activity level. I checked-in with Brittany and I was surprised at some of the things I found out.
During my sessions with Brittany, I came to know that some of the high fat foods I love but tried to avoid– i.e. nut butter, avocado and nuts are so nutrient rich that in moderation, they are excellent for increasing energy and losing weight! The key of course learning how to combine foods and the timing of eating them as well as portion control. Brittany, in her roles as educator and “cheerleader” for meeting my goals, was invaluable.
"For many years I have been trying to lose weight through various forms of exercise and watching my diet. Although I fluctuated a few pounds here and there I had had no meaningful or lasting success. I started working with Brittany at the suggestion of my personal trainer.
The process was quite challenging at times and I had to find ways to creatively modify my diet so that I could lose weight and my family did not all revolt. Brittany reviewed my eating patterns, offered me suggestions and recipes and most importantly some education on how my current diet was impacting my body. The first weeks were a challenge but her support and willingness to be flexible and keep trying new things finally got me to a place where I was losing weight at a gradual pace and really beginning to enjoy a healthier and more balanced diet.
Her support during this time was invaluable and kept me going even when I wanted to give up. There are days where it is still a challenge and I have a ways to go, but I am confident I would not have had the success I have experienced so far if it weren’t for Brittany. Thank you!!!
