“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.
