“Janelle has a way of presenting nutrition that will fundamentally change the way that you eat, workout and supplement. Her “it’s not a diet” approach was key to my transformation. I had lost up to 100 pounds on other diet plans multiple times only to gain them back. I had no idea why the previous weight loss plans even worked. Janelle worked with me to understand how to eat well, how to change my eating habits and even helped me understand how to navigate eating-out or eating in challenging situations. She also helped me understand supplementation as part of the nutrition process as well. Thanks so much for changing my life and my health! I would recommend you to anyone.“
“Janelle is fabulous! For years I have struggled with sugar addiction. I also recently was diagnosed with thyroid disease. After years of dieting I thought I knew what my body needed to lose weight but I was unknowingly feeding my sugar addiction with my dieting habits. I never learned how to eat for health until working with Janelle. With her guidance, I also learned how to feed my soul by working to love my body and myself. I work in the medical field and am so impressed by Janelles medical knowledge of nutrition. It was so helpful to have her explain why I physiologically dont feel good when I eat things that are not helpful for my body. Janelle lends a non-judgemental ear when I discussed my emotional eating which really allowed me to break that cycle. She offers food options that are realistic for my lifestyle so that I can be successful with healthy eating at home or on the go. She has been a godsend for me! She is beautiful inside and out. I highly recommend her!”
“Janelle’s approach to nutrition is the most unique I’ve ever seen because it is custom made for you! She listened to my dreams and fears. She customized an evolving nutrition plan that is unique to me. Foods I liked were encouraged. Foods I didn’t like were not required. She listened to me! She was flexible with solutions. She was available when I felt stuck. She motivated me when I needed help to keep going. She was truly my partner in the journey to health that I finally found myself excited to walk. New journeys are scary when you don’t know which direction to go. The good news is that you’ve already taken the first step, let her show you the next one.“
