Frequently Asked Questions
Learn How it Works!
How long will it take before I see results?
That depends on the individual, the goal they set, and how much the person complies to their personalized nutritional program. I have seen people have results as soon as a couple of days and for some, it takes a little longer. Most of the time I like to work with people for a year. That is usually enough time to set the goals, put them into practice, remove the roadblocks, and let you launch into your new lifestyle with me still there for any other questions that arise.
What about the 80/20 rule?
This one is tricky. Some people just cannot do 80/20. This is where you are compliant to the nutrition and lifestyle plan 80% of the time and have 20% designated to “cheating”. If you have a disease or condition that you are wanting to reverse like type II diabetes or an autoimmune condition, you have to be very strict for several months maybe even up to a year. That is not to say you cannot enjoy food or life. That is my goal is to help bring vitality back to your life and if that means giving up foods that are keeping you inflamed then that is what we do for a time. We reintroduce them from time to time to see if you can eat them. There are always alternatives to your favorite foods that are much healthier. Do not think of it as deprivation it is about living.
I am interested in nutrition but not sure about the genetic interpretation. Do I have to do both?
No, You can do either or both. I work with clients on just epigenetics or just on nutrition. It is great if you can combine the two. It can provide a deeper understanding of how your body works. I understand for some people the epigenetic is more costly or maybe you are not ready to know that part or afraid of certain personal information out in the world. There are ways to keep your identity a secret so that it is not directly related back to you. Either epigenetics or nutrition can be added at any time.
What brought you to this field of work?
I have always been a compassionate person that wanted to help people. I was not sure what that looked like until I had my own health issues and saw the need to help people take back their health. Doctors are overworked and do not have the time or training to teach people how to better their health through diet and lifestyle. That is where I come in.
How will the plan affect my day-to-day life?
To see the results you are looking for change has to occur. One of my strengths is coming up with alternative ways to make your day-to-day life run smoother with new lifestyle changes without it causing much discomfort. For example, if you have to eat out for lunch daily what we would do is find alternatives or find a way to bring your lunch. Two of my biggest success story was two separate truck drivers that I worked with. I was able to help them both find ways to pack as much healthy food as possible to take on the road with them and how to avoid the truckstop food pitfalls. They both lost the weight they wanted and kicked diabetes to the curb.
What if I’m not seeing the results I am looking for? Can I get my money back?
