“After a recent diagnosis of a heart blockage through a heart catheter, I signed up for Wellness Coaching to reduce my cholesterol levels and hopefully lose a bit of weight as well. We discussed specific diet and lifestyle changes I could make in order to do just that without making it feel like I was on a diet or temporary plan. After just 3 months of working together, my cholesterol levels were so much better than my doctor reduced my medication by half and I have also lost about 6 pounds. I’m soo happy!” – Wellness Coaching with Erica
“I felt as though I wasn’t confident when making food choices, and when outside of my normal routine, I felt like I was a bit too restrictive and rigid. I wanted to be able to let go of the idea that there is a “right” thing to eat. I sought out Wellness Coaching with Nutrition Stripped to help guide me through this, and working with Erica did just that. We discussed the importance of food freedom and went through the basics of nutrition so I felt confident when making food choices, but not as though I had to select the “right” thing all the time. I now feel like I can relax and celebrate occasions when I go out to eat. Overall, I feel so much less vigilant and rigid when it comes to eating than I had in the past!” – Wellness Coaching with Erica
“I wanted to clearly identify my food intolerances to strengthen my immune system and lose a bit of weight healthily. We worked together to create a way to use the 5×5 Framework that allowed me to easily determine where my food intolerances were stemming from. The plan was also tailored to my individual needs to promote healthy weight loss through a lifestyle approach rather than a diet. After two months of working on this with my NS Wellness Coach, I no longer had any sensitivity outbreaks and my clothes were already starting to fit better from weight loss!” – Wellness Coaching with Erica
I just had my follow up meeting with my PCP on the followup blood work he ordered when a couple of levels were high. The results are that instead of having 4 levels that were high, only a single level remains high but even that one is much lower. The other good news is that from my last visit a little over a year ago, I am 9.7 lbs lighter!!! Thanks for all your help in this!
I just want to tell you that I’ve really enjoyed working with you and the things you told me have been so helpful. I’ve lost 9 pounds, I’m continuing to eat with purpose and enjoy life! Thank you for your guidance!
