Through behavior management and counseling, we’ll get you on the path toward meeting your nutrition goals; whether it’s weight loss, weight maintenance, or embarking on a journey to a healthier you. If you provide me with your motivation and desire to achieve your goals, I will provide the tools necessary to discover a healthier you.
Diets don’t work. At least in the long run they don’t. Sure you’ll lose 10 pounds on that calorie restricted cleanse. But, how long will it be before those sneaky 10 pounds come back? Studies have shown that not only does yo-yo dieting wreak havoc on your metabolism, but the hormones that help regulate hunger and satiety are also negatively affected and may take years to recover. Permanent weight loss takes hard work, patience, and a realistic approach. Let’s work together to find what works for you.
Being diagnosed with a food allergy can be scary. Getting used to reading food labels, finding restaurants that can cater to your needs and just having foods around the house that you can actually eat can become a chore. I'm here to help. I will educate you and your family on the ins and outs of managing your food allergy, from identifying foods and products that can put you at risk to setting up a menu and shopping list that includes healthy food options that are safe and delicious.
It’s no longer all about you. Gone are the days when you could throw a lean cuisine in the microwave, pour yourself a glass of wine and watch TV. Now, it’s about getting a somewhat balanced meal on the table for the big kids, getting the baby to eat those pureed carrots, and getting everyone to bed at a reasonable hour. It’s tough to figure out what to serve your family everyday, especially if you’re dealing with multiple taste preferences, food allergies, and a spouse trying out a new diet. How about a little help? Need your pantry organized to reflect healthier options? How about we sit down and develop a menu (complete with shopping lists) for the week that is also nutritionally tailored to each family member’s needs? Let me help you get started.
Every person is unique. Every family is unique. But, over the years, through much trial and error, I have figured out what is most effective when it comes to making real changes that become healthy habits that last a lifetime. My signature packages are templates we can use to develop the best program that fits your needs and your lifestyle. We can make small changes to these packages to fit certain time constraints, but my formula of assessment, follow ups, accountability checks, and follow through is what delivers results.
Learning about healthy habits and nutritious eating should be fun! This is the complete nutrition assessment and education package for your child. Included is a full nutrition assessment of your child's current dietary intake, as well as recommendations based on food preferences and needs. Also included is a 90 minute hands on healthy eating and healthy habits workshop. Amy will guide your child through her "5-4-3-2-1...Make it Fun!" workbook that outlines an easy way for your child to remember what it takes to be healthy: 5 servings of fruits and veggies a day, less 4 teaspoons of sugar a day, 3 healthy meals a day, less than 2 hours of screen time a day, and 1 hour of physical activity a day. Colorful handouts, hands on recipes, and lively discussion make this an excellent way for kids to learn how to be healthy. Ages 5-10.
Give your teenager the tools to make healthy eating decisions now and for the rest of their lives. The access to nutrition information is at your teens fingertips, and the thought that they are relying on the internet, fashion magazines, and friends for nutrition advice is frightening. Make sure the information they are receiving is accurate, up to date and free of what's trendy. This package includes a full nutrition assessment, a 3 day sample menu for healthy eating, tips on choosing healthy foods at school/at the dorm, a healthy snacking guide, and an education session on how foods affect our mood, stress levels, sleep patterns and school performance.
$250 (includes nutrition assessment and one hour education session for one. One hour cooking lesson can be added for additional $75)
Permanent change goes beyond food. A simple meal plan isn't the answer. You need to be able to stick to these changes so that you see real results. Not results that last for a few weeks. That's why this package works. This 1 month program includes a full nutrition work-up (labs should be done by your MD), nutrition analysis based on your 7 day intake, identification of your nutrition setbacks and recommendations based on food preferences and deficiencies. Follow-ups take place weekly for 4 weeks (you can choose phone sessions, FaceTime or in person meetings). You will also receive a 5 day meal plan with alternate meal options, recipes, and prepared food recommendations. Daily text messages/reminders are also included. I will also be available for your questions via email and text throughout the duration of your program*.
$495 (includes assessment,follow-ups, 5 day meal plan, text messaging)
