Nutrition

We believe in meeting you where you are and help find what works best and sustainable for your lifestyle. What it means is that we don’t have a single nutrition philosophy. Instead, we are nutritional agnostics. We are willing to assess and make collaborative suggestions about various approaches, depending on all the particulars of an individual’s needs.

If a particular nutrition idea — like Keto, Paleo, or vegetarianism — worked for you personally, that’s awesome. You should be happy you found something that helped you reach your goals.
But to suggest that because it worked for you, at one point in your life, under a particular set of circumstances, now everyone else should follow the same program isn’t just narcissistic but it’s the antithesis of good coaching.
We believe in teaching the fundamental principles of nutrition that can be applied to nearly any dietary approach. Principles such as-
• Controlling energy balance⁠
• Improving awareness/ attention/ mindfulness
• Emphasizing mostly minimally processed whole foods
• Managing appetite and food intake.⁠

So, in the end, you need to be open to evaluating anything and everything that could work. Willing to test new methods, even if they fly in the face of current beliefs or practices and humble enough to sometimes be wrong, even if you really like being right.

Just in case you’re not sure, let’s start by defining what macros, or macronutrients, actually are. There are three major macronutrients: Protein, carbohydrates, and fat. (The fourth macronutrient is alcohol.) Your body breaks down the macronutrients you eat into compounds used to help create energy, build body structures, create chemical reactions, and stimulate the release of hormones. Which means they...
