Food & Nutrition Coaching

There is no one size fits all plan. Learn which foods work best for your unique physiology and how to eat right for your body.

Habit Change Coaching

Changing how you eat isn’t as simple as being handed a meal plan. Most people require real habit change to be successful.

Personal Training

I offer in-person and online personal training specializing in weight loss, improving mobility and pre and post-natal.

What if you never had to diet again?

This is one of the first questions I ask new clients. If a diet works why do you have to keep doing it over and over again? If meal plans are so great why do most people put the weight back on? The reason is that for most of us neither of these are sustinable. What we need is to rebuild our relationship with food, learn what works best for our body and develop the habits we need to stay on track.

A cornerstone of my nutrition practice is habit change coaching, and if you stick with it and trust the process you will never have to diet again.

Pre and Postnatal Coaching

 

Whether you’re trying to conceive, pregnant or postpartum, I’m here to offer customized nutrition and fitness recommendations, as well as unlimited support. Learn how to nourish your body for easier conception and through pregnancy, and for smoother recovery once baby is born.

About Emily

Nutritionist And Trainer

Hi there, I’m Emily.

I’ve struggled with my weight since childhood, and I’ve tried every diet and way of eating under the sun! I’ve lost over 100lbs, experimented with many diets including veganism, and have competed as a high-level athlete. I’ve learned that the solution to long-term weight loss isn’t usually found in a diet or meal plan, but rather consists of repeating healthy habits, over and over again. There is a lot of health and wellness information out there, and most of it is unfounded, unsupported and out of date.

My job is to help clients navigate through the confusing world of nutrition and fitness and pinpoint the information that is relevant and useful to them. Whether your goal is to lose weight, get stronger, balance your hormones, or just feel BETTER, I’m here to guide and support you every step of the way. I view each client as an individual with unique needs, and I’m here to truly listen and help troubleshoot your challenges, as well as celebrate your successes.

If you’re ready to get started on this journey, contact me below. I look forward to hearing from you!

Frequently Asked Questions

Learn How it Works!

Do you offer meal plans?

Typically we begin with building better habits and assessing what foods work best for your body. In this process many people discover that a ridgid meal plan would not work for them, which avoids wasted time and frustration. If we find that you do respond well to a structured meal plan that is something we can arrange.

Will I have to follow a restrictive diet?

No. I do not recommend restrictve diets or dramatic calorie reductions. While these tactics may work in the short term they are not sustainable, which is why so many people end up regaining the weight they have lost. We want to develop a sustainable long-term strategy that works for your lifestyle.

Do you offer discounts?

While I have discounts for service packages I do not offer any kind of student discounts etc.

Do you only work with clients in palo alto?

No, I work with clients remotely all over the world both for nutrition and training.

What if I have a health problem or injury?

I work with clients who have health problems, injuries or mobility restrictions. As long as we get clearance from your physician there is a lot that can be done with food and exercise to improve a variety of conditions.

Do you take insurance?

Because I am not a healthcare professional my services are not covered by insurance.
