What do I look for in myself as a nutritionist? To me a nutritionist is a teacher, mentor, and guide for optimal health. A nutritionist is one half of a team, the client being the other. A team in which both members work towards health goals together, keeping each other motivated. A nutritionist has knowledge about food science and it is able to relay that knowledge to his/her clients in a simplified, easy to understand way. A nutritionist stays informed about leading scientific data and findings, as to avoid any misinformation or previous knowledge that could harm his/her client. Lastly, and possibly the most important, a nutritionist practices what he/she preaches.
If this is what you look for in a nutritionist, then I am your guy. I provide one-on-one consultations, meal plans, cardio training, and trail running coaching for anyone and everyone who is excited about becoming a healthier person. What do I mean by healthy? Proper nutrition and exercise don't only improve physical health, but mental, emotional, and I believe even spiritual health as well. Through research and personal experience I have modified my diet significantly through the years. I have noticed these health changes more and more. What are the primary modifications that I have made in my diet over the years? Simply put, I have slowly cut animal products out of my diet. I went from pescatarian (eating only fish as a meat source), to vegetarian, and now working on vegan. My athletic performance, energy, and sleep have all improved along the way. I am passionate about what I do because I know health is an invaluable asset in life. I know that if we aren't healthy, true happiness is impossible to obtain. Welcome to Forward Progressions and cheers to health!
