You’ve tried every diet out there.  It turns out that starving yourself doesn’t work for very long.  Eventually, you lose control and then you feel ashamed of yourself for “falling off the wagon”.  You’re tired of trying to squeeze into a size 6, and you just want to feel good about your food and your health.

You deserve to feel satisfied by the food you eat and to feel good in your own skin.

  • Enjoy good food — without guilt or shame — while you make progress toward your health goals.
  • Stop breaking out in a sweat every time you step on the scale. Find a comfortable body weight without starving yourself.
  • Learn to manage your emotions without using food as a way to cope with stress.

Enjoy Good Food and Good Health

without Feeling Ashamed of Your Body

If you have diabetes or prediabetes, you probably feel overwhelmed and confused.  You might be getting advice from everyone in your life, from your family to your friends to your co-workers.  How do you know who to trust?

You want to do everything you can to keep yourself healthy, but you’re not sure where to start. You end up feeling confused and frustrated, with no clear answers. You get a sinking feeling every time you step on the scale, and you’ve starting to lose hope.  You get so tired of trying without seeing results that you just want to give up and eat whatever you want.

Nutrition counseling gives you all the tools you need to confidently manage your diabetes without feeling ashamed of your body.

  • Personalized nutrition counseling will slide you into the easiest exercise plan ever—you’ll be checking exercise off of your to-do list and loving it
  • Give you a place to ask all your questions and get support, so you never feel frustrated or alone again
  • Show you how to eat delicious food that will nourish your body and satisfy your cravings

Nutrition Counseling Will Help You…

Balance Blood Sugars

Does the word “diabetes” make you feel guilty, like you’ve done something wrong? Afraid to check your blood sugar because you’re scared to see the result? Wondering if you’ll ever get a day when you don’t have the dark cloud of diabetes hanging over your head? I can’t make type 2 diabetes go away, but I can teach you everything I know about how to keep your blood sugars in balance—so you can let go of feeling guilty about having type 2 diabetes, and start feeling confident about your ability to handle this.

Find a Comfortable Weight

Most people with type 2 diabetes have been told that they need to lose weight to get their blood sugars under better control. The truth is, by the time you’re diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, you’ve most likely lost half of your body’s ability to make its own insulin. Losing weight might or might not improve your blood sugar, and yo-yo dieting is worse for your health than maintaining a steady weight. Your weight is not your worth—find a comfortable body weight and love the skin you’re in.

Reinvent Your
Relationship with Food

Do you feel like food is the enemy? You have to eat, but it seems like everything you put in your mouth sends your blood sugar through the roof. The foods you used to love are off-limits, and you don’t want to spend all day in the kitchen cooking new foods you can’t pronounce, much less eating them. Learn how to prepare and eat nourishing food that won’t send your blood sugar skyward.

YOU’VE BEEN TAKING CARE OF EVERYONE BUT YOU

You really want to get a better handle on your type 2 diabetes, but there’s so much going on in your life. You’re taking care of everyone else, and your needs are on the back burner. You’ve got a job, a family, and people who are depending on you to get things done. The last thing you have time for is a ton of visits to a diabetes education class where you just might get some generic handouts that don’t really do you any good. What you really need is a way to figure out how to handle your type 2 diabetes while you’re handling everything else, without taking time off for appointments and traveling back and forth to a medical office.

HELP IS HERE

Taking care of everyone except you is costing your health. It’s time for you to take care of you. Personalized nutrition counseling gives you bite-sized chunks of information and helps you change your health bit by bit. You’ll get access to a type 2 diabetes expert who cares about helping you thrive. It’s time for you to stop feeling confused and start feeling confident when it comes to your type 2 diabetes.
