Since our bodies function based on the nutrients they are given, what you eat plays a huge role in preventing, managing, and reversing illness and disease. At times a simple change to the diet is all it takes to help you feel better, but other times it takes a whole body approach to rebuild and repair damage from years of stress, lack of sleep, poor diet etc. The more I study and experience how food affects health, the more I am amazed at how the body functions and is often able to heal itself when harmful substances are taken away and it is given what it needs.

Here are a few of the many health issues that a change in your diet and lifestyle may be able to manage, improve, or even reverse.

 

 

Weight management: weight gain, weight loss, and weight loss resistance
Digestive issues: IBS / IBD, crohn’s, celiac, ulcerative colitis, diverticulosis, gastritis

Food allergies and sensitivities
GERD / Heartburn
Diabetes / Hypoglycemia
Skin issues: eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis, acne
Bacteria / Yeast imbalance: SIBO, candida
Hypertension
High Cholesterol / Triglycerides
Arthritis and other inflammatory issues
Autoimmune diseases and immune function
Exercise training and performance
Headaches / Migraines
Thyroid issues
Chronic fatigue
Anxiety / Depression

From my own experience in seeking to improve my health, I know that making lifestyle changes is no easy task. Changing routines and habits requires hard work and step by step progression that encompasses the whole person. My goal is to help you develop a healthy relationship with food in the midst of achieving your goals. I believe that change does not happen overnight and therefore to best help you I want to invest in your life for more than 1 or 2 visits, but if all you need is 1 or 2 nutrition consults to get started — I’m happy to do that as well!

 

 

 

 

*I was feeling tired all the time. I was running out of energy by the afternoon, and things seemed up hill for the rest of the evening. I knew I needed help since I had already failed at helping myself. Leslie was the right person at the right time for what I needed. Leslie worked out with me in my home twice a week for five weeks. We sat down once a week to talk about nutrition and eating habits. In those five weeks, I lost a total of four inches and gained so much energy. I had more energy in the evenings, more mental focus during the day, less cravings for bad foods, and did not feel hungry between meals. Leslie gave me an amazing tip that has continued to work. Combine your carbs, fats, sugars, and proteins in meals and snacks. Don't just go lean or eat just fruits and veggies. The keys to success...get your body moving, eat with moderation, and protein is king! She taught me how to eat the way my body wants and needs to eat without some crazy, fad diet. I appreciate Leslie for her encouragement and her follow up with me after our five weeks together. She offered me so much grace and convinced me I had the guts to meet my goals. I learned to give myself a little grace sometimes. Thank you Leslie!
