We Believe:

Z

All foods can fit. Individual foods are not necessarily good or bad. 

}

It’s the accumulation of good choices over days, weeks, and months that make a healthy diet. 

i

Good nutrition comes from setting goals and making mindful dietary choices. 

Our Registered Dietitians have experience with a variety of medical concerns including obesity, diabetes, cancer and cardiovascular disease. In addition, they have worked with a variety of medical conditions, and with both adults and children. They are registered with the Commission on Dietetic Registration and Licensed with the state of North Carolina to practice Nutrition and Dietetics.

Clients can also rest assured that the information we provide will be evidenced-based and supported by sound research. We also strive to provide nutrition tips that are practical and that most people can reasonably incorporate into a busy lifestyle.

“They are great coaches and motivators. I have learned so much about nutrition and fitness. I have been able to adapt my habits and make positive and lasting lifestyle changes. I’m on course to achieving my goal for weight, nutrition, and health–couldn’t achieve it during the 16 weeks I’ve just finished, but my goals are in sight and I will keep working on them (with help from my great coaches!).”

-Mike H.

“I really appreciated meeting as “a team” to talk about nutrition and exercise. I appreciated the encouragement and motivation. I appreciated how the “pace” changed across time–we started where I “was” with my eating and fitness and the pace introduced appropriate challenges as the weeks progressed–so, not too much too soon.”

-CC
