Steps to Overcome
Are you feeling lost with how to conquer your cravings?
Do you feel ashamed of yourself after eating?
Are you overwhelmed with how to prep and plan nourishing, healthy meals?
I am all too familiar with these feelings. For about 17 years, I struggled with emotional overeating and severe stress & anxiety. I often found myself in a vicious cycle as these issues literally fed into each other. I fell into weight fluctuations, body image issues, and incredible overwhelm. I often found myself feeling depressed, ashamed, and helpless.
I finally began seeking help and began the journey of re-learning my relationship to food, stress management, and overall emotional health. This was a slow moving-process that occurred over several years.
I have pulled together the tools and strategies from my education and own experience with conquering my emotional eating, and created a program to share with you.
In this program we will work together to develop strategies to conquer your emotional eating.
We will get to the root cause of your struggles, and create an action plan unique to your life.
I will help you to develop a healthier relationship to food, and learn to love and take care of your body. You will learn basic cooking skills for nourishing meals, and develop simple meal-prepping routines that are manageable for your unique life and schedule.
"It is so crazy to me that I am seeing so many positive changes in my life and I am only 3 months into being coached. I started off as a cynic of health coaching. I wanted it to work for me, I wanted to see positive changes in my life, but I was ready for it not to work.
One of the biggest changes I have seen already halfway through my time working with Melanie is a belief in myself, a belief that I can make any changes in my life that I want to make. I have never in my life felt that much empowering hope in my own personal change. I feel like I have been given the most important tool to overall health, a belief that I have the power to change.
Only three months in and I have already reached my weight goal. A goal I have had for 4 years now and have been only been making slow progress with in the last year. I went from struggling to run 1 mile, 3 times a week, to now feeling comfortable running 2 miles, 2-3 times a week. I changed my goal of running a 5k to a half marathon next summer! I am closer to my friends and family than I have been before because I am being true to myself and making sure to take into account what I want in life. I have found a routine of breathing and actions that I can take to tackle my anxiety when it starts to become crippling. I have made financial and career goals and created plans for how I want to tackle them. Melanie has also helped me with nutrition goals and has been s supportive with whatever style of eating I wanted to try as I explored what I should fuel my body with to work it’s best.
Most importantly I am happy with who I am and I am prioritizing making myself the happiest I can be. Melanie has helped me look critically at all the parts of my life I thought I couldn’t control/make better and find steps to really reach my goals.
I am eternally grateful, recommend her to anyone wanting to see real change in their lives, and I am so excited to be able to see where I am at in another 3 months."
"Prior to working with Melanie I assumed her coaching would focus mainly on nutrition and exercise, obvious things like that. What I didn’t know is that we would be looking at many other areas of my life as “nutrition”. What Melanie helped illuminate, and what I had really underestimated, is the magnitude that all my roles, values, and relationships were playing in the nourishment of my being.
Starting out I didn’t have a solid idea of what an integrative nutritional health coach was, but I knew I was in need of some accountability and that Melanie could provide that. Since working with Melanie I boast that she will not only help you look at nutrition, movement, and yes create accountability, she will help lead you to a well-nourished, well-balanced way of being you.
Melanie is a skilled listener, and gifted in helping you get to the crux of your intentions and goals. With her guidance and support, I was able to tackle many goals. Some were related to food and exercise, and others focused on many other facets of life that were “weighing” me down and driving me toward unhealthy patterns around food, sleep, etc. Throughout the process I felt thoroughly supported in working on my goals and well celebrated in my efforts. Melanie provided me a wonderful launching pad towards a more health conscious, balanced, goal-motivated way of living, of which I am very grateful.
I would highly recommend Melanie as an integrative nutritional health coach to anyone seeking a supportive, thoughtful, well-rounded path to health.
PS Her top-notch individualized yoga instruction is an incredible added bonus."
