Ready to get healthy, but need guidance, motivation, and a roadmap?
Let me guide you step by step to:
The one-on-one nutrition counseling program is tailored to you. This is how it works:
1- PRIMARY CONSULTATION: Schedule your first session below, AT LEAST ONE WEEK in advance. Thats because once you schedule it, you will be provided with and asked to fill out a questionnaire and food diary for ideally 5 days and return it to me 24 hours before our session, so I can review it.
2- ASSESSMENT & PLANNING: I will assess your current diet, lifestyle, concerns, and goals, and put together a plan to address and reverse your concerns and reach your goals, all the while taking into account your current diet and lifestyle. All plans are designed to help you create healthy habits that stick, as painlessly as possible.
3- FIRST SESSION: Our first session I will suggest the top 1-3 diet or lifestyle changes you can make that could have a significant improvement of your concerns, and move you towards your goals. I will thoroughly explain them, and give you a concrete plan to follow them. This is what you will focus on for the next week. (The reason we focus on one or a few small areas at a time, is so that you don’t become overwhelmed!) Depending on your current state and goals, I will suggest the number of sessions to help you get there. (60-minute session, over Skype or Phone).
4- FOLLOW UP SESSIONS: We will continue to meet once a week, and build on habits from prior week. We will talk about your progress, troubleshoot if we need to, then I will educate you on new topics, and give you another set of actions to focus on. You will be held accountable to your goals and commitments, and given the support and guidance you need to follow through. (50-minute session, over Skype or Phone)
You’ll receive various handouts, meal plans, recipes, and tailored recommendations (for example for local restaurants). Sessions are conducted via phone, Skype, or Facetime – so you can work with Maria no matter where you are in the world.
5- ACHIEVE YOUR GOALS: At the final session, we will assess your progress, and you’ll leave with recommendations to maintain what you’ve achieved. If you’d like to have continued accountability, or questions pop up, you can schedule in 20-minute check-ins as you like after your initial program is complete.
If you’re done with diets and dogma, and want real help, guidance, and accountability towards achieving your wellness goals, try one-on-one nutrition coaching with Maria.
