What, exactly, do I do?

I get asked by someone, in some form, every day what I do. What I do better than anyone else is Body Sustainability. I help you help yourself from breaking down. And if you are broken down, I’m like a mechanic that fixes you up, hands you a greasy cloth and...

Why I don’t want to hear about your perfect diet

Sometimes it feels like my part time job is arguing with my girlfriend about nutrition.  My friend and I went to Health Coaching school together, and much as I love her, I get insanely rage-filled when we discuss dietary theories and practices. We both went to the...
