“Initially, I was nervous because I had never worked with a nutritionist and did not know what to expect. Reading reviews online and learning that you took a more wholistic approach helped calm my nerves as it aligned to how I like to view health and nutrition. Since the start of our working together, I have been able to switch to a healthy vegan diet and have lost approximately 18 pounds. While these were my reasons to start the program, Adrienne helped create more balance in my life, helping to manage my stress levels and emphasizing taking care of my whole self.
I really appreciated your positive approach to coaching. You never made our meetings about just losing weight, but about educating me on how to construct a healthy diet in a sustainable way that does not feel like a “diet”. The focus on health and energy over calories or eliminating food groups helped make this a fun program that included trying new recipes and techniques that kept it interesting and exciting. I have a whole new set of recipes that are both delicious and healthy.
Also, I benefited from the visualization parts of the program greatly. The 1 month, 6 month, and 1 year goal setting exercise helped me stay on track and stay motivated. It also allowed myself to really think about what I want to accomplish this year. It has helped from a health perspective, but it also helped me to visualize and come terms with where I wanted to be with my relationship, my self care, and my career.
I would definitely recommend you to others!! I would recommend you to someone you is:
i. Committed to making a change in their health in an iterative and sustainable way
ii. Benefit from a wholistic approach to becoming a healthier version of yourself iii. Who are ready to be honest with themselves about their current health and to step out of their comfort zone and try some new
iv. Who are looking to transition to a more plant based diet
v. Who are overwhelmed in life and need to be purposeful about creating more balance in their life
vi. Who gets excited about theories and approaches about health and diet
vii. Who has or wants to have a more positive approach to living.
I really enjoyed my time with you and would not really change anything. The hardest parts were just facing the fact that I was not in balance and not taking care of myself, which was the first step in committing to make a change. You are very talented at helping course correct, but it was vital that I was committed to my health and making the change.
I think you are very accommodating and so knowledgeable about nutrition that you really do design a plan that works with your patient’s reality. This helps make the change attainable. You have a great positive energy and never shame/discipline. It is much more about where are you and how are you going to course correct or build on the progress made.
I just want to express my gratitude for all the support and guidance you provided through this program. In December, I decided to take charge of my health and life and I would not have been successful without you. I knew I wanted to go vegan, but I really did not know how to do it in a healthy way. I knew you would help with that, but I was not expecting the impact you had on my general outlook on life. You have helped my deal with my stress and confidence as well. You really to help people work on their whole self, which I think is so important to sustainable success. You also armed me with numerous strategies to “get back on track” as needed and understand to be kind with myself if I falter and just course correct as needed. I have learned things in the last seven months that I will use for the rest of my life.”
