I’ve always been able to find a great connection with Mckel and actually apply what I’ve learned. Some factors were for me and some were not however that’s when I was able to use intuitiveness and make the final decision!  It was the beginning to my understanding of food nutrition and now have literally taken and run with my health! I think we spend 6 months in total together! I have never felt as amazing as I do now, and always stem my appreciation back to you steering me in the correct direction!

Britni Client Wellness Coaching

I thought that the plan and “to-do” items would be too time-consuming or difficult to implement in my life. McKel used information about my current lifestyle and habits (and health) to create a framework that required implementing small changes over time that positively impacted my day-day life. If you’re on the fence, if you think this is a magic button, it isn’t, but it also isn’t hard. Be as honest as you possible can about the timeline of your day and your habits. This will enable you to create a plan to support your health and your goals. If you commit to small changes over time, you can change the way you think about nutrition and positively affect your everyday life.

Amy S. Client Wellness Coaching

Before deciding to try McKel’s framework, I didn’t think I’d have the time or willpower to really change my lifestyle and eating behaviors.  After experiencing the framework, I've realized that I can take baby steps towards living a healthier life and I’m encouraged to make the guidance my own, listen to my body and find the routines that work best for me and my lifestyle. I now have the tools to sustain this healthy lifestyle — they serve as a reference guide that I can return to time and time again!

Christina F. Client Wellness Coaching

“Personally, what sets apart NS from other blogs is that it encompasses more than pretty food-styled photos or inspiring quotes – you, McKel, and your team take time to educate and provide factual, fascinating material that translates so easily into reality. That, to me, is why I keep coming back – and recommend the blog and cookbook to anyone who will listen!”

Natalie Y. part of the NS Community

“With the Society, I was able to approach a more mindful and balanced way of living with a community of others interested in doing the same thing. Connecting all over the world, asking questions, overcoming similar habits/hurdles, and sharing our lives with each other really makes it feel like you’re going on a health journey with friends. NS promotes progress, not perfection, and enjoying the process all along the way to achieve an overall happier and healthier you!”

Karsyn in the NS Society

“I can hardly believe how amazing I feel after such a short time of fueling my body right. I have significantly more energy and feel an overall lightness in my body. I usually feel very sluggish and sick after eating and I’ve felt nothing but fantastic these past few days. Thank you, McKel, for sharing this great knowledge, I’m so excited to continue learning!”

Emily T on Wellness Coaching

“It has been instrumental in helping me to achieve my goal of obtaining all my nutritional goals through whole foods and still embracing my love of cooking and being a foodie!”

Michelle on the Meal Planning Program

“My kitchen is clean! I feel like if my kitchen is messy/disorganized, I reach for foods that I tend to not choose or even go out to grab something instead of making foods that I have. When I keep my kitchen clean, I eat foods/meals that are extremely nourishing and vibe with my day”

Kelsey on the Meal Planning Program

“Learning how to meal prep has truly been a game changer, especially while I’m in school. I’ve noticed that when I don’t take the time to meal plan for a certain week, I end up eating less and having less energy. I would’ve never learned how to meal prep effectively without Nutrition Stripped, so thanks, McKel!”

Jacy on the Meal Planning Program

“Mckel is a life changer. Nutrition is just a part of my life now, not a daunting task. I would recommend her to anyone!”

Ali A. on Wellness Coaching

I’ve been amazed at how much easier my world has been once I really started trying to simplify what I was eating instead of trying to concoct super fancy, insanely involved recipes every night.
