On the Scales

Weight Loss

Many people find that as time goes by, their weight slowly goes up.  The good news is that there are numerous ways that I can help you manage or lose weight and restore your health at the same time.  Common health issues such as diabetes, heart disease, kidney disease, and hypertension can be addressed and minimized with proper nutrition and knowledge about what a critical role it plays in our overall health.  Commercial diets come and go constantly.  While you may find short-term gains by following one, the results seldom last in the long run.  I can provide you with the knowledge and understanding to take a healthy lifestyle approach towards nutrition.


According to the Centers for Disease Control, it is estimated that 37 million people have diabetes, and 96 million people have prediabetes.  Diabetes is a group of diseases characterized by high blood sugar. When a person has diabetes, the body either does not make enough insulin (Type 1) or is unable to properly use insulin (Type 2).  Prediabetes is a condition in which blood sugar is higher than normal but not high enough to be classified as diabetes.  People with diabetes can develop high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and high triglycerides (A type of fat in the blood).  High blood sugar, particularly when combined with high blood pressure and high triglycerides, can lead to heart disease, stroke, blindness, kidney failure, amputations of the legs and feet, and even early death.

The good news is that proper nutrition and weight loss can make have very positive impacts on managing and improving health related complications from diabetes.  Together, we can find healthy nutrition options that are realistic to your unique circumstances.

Weight Loss Surgery

Weight loss surgery (Also known as bariatric surgery), such as gastric bypass, sleeve gastrectomy, and duodenal switch work by changing the anatomy (Or position) of the stomach and small intestines. This then causes changes in appetite, satiety (Feeling full), and metabolism.  Many of the hormonal signals that cause weight gain or inability to lose weight are affected by these procedures, and it becomes easier to lose weight.  However, overall success still requires a healthy diet and a good exercise routine. These procedures are tools to treat a chronic condition but cannot work alone.  I can provide the expert nutritional guidance that is sometimes required by insurance companies prior to surgery and is always important after the surgery.

Heart Health

According to the Centers for Disease Control, heart disease is the leading cause of death for men, women, and people of most racial and ethnic groups in the United States.  There are a number of risk factors that can contribute to heart disease, such as cigarette smoking, family history of heart disease, and physical activity.  Other risk factors that are linked to nutrition include obesity, high blood pressure, and types of fats eaten.  The American Heart Association reports that a healthy diet and lifestyle can be your best weapon against heart disease.  Learning about nutrition and the many simple changes that can be made to improve our health is a passion of mine and can make a big difference for clients.

Food Allergies and Digestive Health

A food allergy is an immune system reaction that occurs soon after eating a certain food. Even a tiny amount of the allergy-causing food can trigger signs and symptoms such as digestive problems, hives or swollen airways. In some people, a food allergy can cause severe symptoms or even a life-threatening reaction known as anaphylaxis.  Food allergies affect an estimated 8% of children under age 5 and up to 4% of adults. While there's no cure, some children outgrow their food allergies as they get older.
Digestive issues can result in missing vital nutrients, which can cause the rest of our body to become dysfunctional.  Digestive problems are very common and can take many forms such as gas, bloating, GERD, gallstones, Celiac disease, Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis, and irritable bowel syndrome.  Many of these problems are the result of your body having an adverse reaction to certain foods, and can eventually cause symptoms such as acid reflux, abdominal pain, bloating, gas, diarrhea, constipation, and ulcers.  We will work together to identify which foods may be causing issues, as well as which foods will be beneficial to your digestive system. There is no one size fits all approach with nutrition, especially when dealing with allergies or digestive issues.

Kidney Disease

Kidney disease means your kidneys are damaged and can't filter blood the way they should. You are at greater risk for kidney disease if you have diabetes or high blood pressure.  If you experience kidney failure, treatments include kidney transplant or dialysis.  A lifestyle centered on proper diet and nutrition can help manage or mitigate diabetes and high blood pressure thereby minimizing the chances or effects of kidney disease.

Oncology and Nutrition

Nutrition is an important part of any cancer treatment.  Eating the right type of foods can help you maintain energy before, during, and after treatment.  Patients undergoing treatment for cancer often lose their appetite and strength.  Unfortunately, these are the times when it is most important to be properly nourished.  Together, we can find dietary solutions to fit your current situation and maintain optimal health.

Pediatric Nutrition

Getting children to eat healthy foods can sometimes feel like fighting an uphill battle. The leafier and greener the food, the greater the struggle. Child nutrition is incredibly important, however and its important to not let them eat large amounts of fast food and sweets.  Nutrition is important at every age. Your children need proper nutrients stay healthy and strong and grow up healthy and strong. Nutrition for children can also help establish a foundation for healthy eating habits and nutritional knowledge that your child can apply throughout life.

Nutrition for Seniors

Good nutrition is important, no matter what your age. It gives you energy and can help you control your weight. It may also help prevent some diseases, such as osteoporosis, high blood pressure, heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and certain cancers.  But as you age, your body and life change, and so does what you need to stay healthy. For example, you may need fewer calories, but you still need to get enough nutrients. Some older adults need more protein.  While each person is different, the benefits of proper nutrition remain the same.

Sports Nutrition

Sports nutrition is the foundation of athletic success. It is a well-designed nutrition plan that allows active adults and athletes to perform at their best.
It supplies the right food type, energy, nutrients, and fluids to keep the body well hydrated and functioning at peak levels. A sports nutrition diet may vary day to day, depending on specific energy demands.  I have enjoyed competing in several figure shows and am very passionate about this subject.
