My Story

At the peak of my 'healthy' lifestyle, I felt worse than ever. 

It was also the peak of my restrictive dieting.

I couldn't sleep, my periods became irregular, my acne was the worst it had ever been, I developed allergies, was constantly getting sick, and all of my weight loss tricks stopped working.

I ate my greens, cut out dairy and carbs, took all my supplements and exercised six days a week.

I mean, vegan, paleo, keto, tracking macros, intermittent fasting...you name it, I've tried it. 

And as a self proclaimed wellness junkie, I had no idea what I was doing wrong. 

But I had to get real with myself and admit that pursuing another diet was not going to help me feel better.

So instead, I realized I had to try things I've never tried before and stop relying on diets to get healthy.

I learned how to nourish my body with more food instead of less.

I learned to listen to my body instead of relying on food rules.

I learned how to support a healthy metabolism and it changed my life. 

And I realized it's possible to maintain a healthy weight without restriction.

I finally feel like the best version of me and I want that for you, too. 

  My Philosophy

Your body wants to feel good.  It wants the same things that you do. 

When you develop all of the unwanted symptoms, your body is speaking to you.

It's telling you that it needs your help.

And you're the only one that can speak it's language.

Reconnecting with your body and learning to honor it with what it needs is the exact thing that will set you free from all of the diets.

 

When you focus on nourishing your body, everything feels easier. 

Cravings magically disappear and you stop turning to snacks because your body feels satisfied. 

You have more energy to focus on yourself.

Thoughts about food and your body size take up less and less space in your mind because you start feeling better than you ever have. 

And you can finally release the weight without feeling restricted.

Losing the weight and keeping it off will feel hard when you do it through restriction. 

When your body is undernourished, it does not care about how you feel or what you look like.

It cares about surviving and conserving energy, not releasing it. 

Because it has no idea what a diet is. 

So when having less becomes the norm, your body learns to adapt.

 

You'll feel like you have a slow metabolism, aging poorly and feel resistance every step of the way.

Resistance like difficulty sleeping, low energy, hormonal imbalances and a delightfully unpredictable mood. Catching every single cold. Difficulty losing weight.  You know the type. 

It usually comes paired with a large glass of vino, carb guilt and a belief you are addicted to sugar. 

It's why all my years of dieting failed me. 

And it's why I teach you what I wish I knew before I ever cut my first carb. 

Ready to feel good again?

If getting healthy feels complicated

Before Kathleen, the thought of a ‘healthy diet’ overwhelmed me because I didn’t think I knew enough about nutrition but she helped me realize its a lot less complicated than I thought it was. I feel a lot less stressed about weight loss because she helped make it more attainable.

I started working with Kathleen in the middle of COVID. There was a lot of comfort eating...now I'm making better food decisions. The lasting impact is knowing simple things that make a difference...understanding the overall impact on my health helps me stay on target.
