Most people know what it is like to live with extra body weight, and that it can be a struggle to sustain weight loss. To transform your body, we will adjust your macronutrients (fat, protein, and carbohydrates) to the right time of the day and the right amount for you. We work with men and women who want to improve their eating habits, optimize their health, boost their metabolism, and lose body fat! What we eat is powerful! The right food can fight off disease and provide the fuel we need to thrive. We love to manipulate your favorite meals to help you reach your health, physique, and fitness goals. Our goal is to help you burn fat through macronutrient-based science with the least amount of “diet suffering” (e.g., hunger, cravings, moodiness). We would love to help you, and most of all educate you to feel confident in what you eat, and how you feel! Improving your health, will not mean you have to take away the pleasure’s life has to offer. Find balance in your routine and your health!

Since 2007, I have worked with the University of Calgary’s Clinical Trials Unit as the Clinical Research Associate focusing on research in athletes with Type 1 and 2 Diabetes, Alberta Health Services Diabetes Centre and as a Provincial Lead for Diabetes, and in private practice with Copeman Healthcare. I work with Alberta Health Services as the Provincial Practice Lead for Cardiovascular Care, Digestive Health, and Chronic Disease Management supporting dietitians and healthcare professional in nutrition care throughout Alberta. I have over a decade of experience as a project manager and key leader in translation and dissemination of nutrition knowledge and evidence-based practice supporting dietitians and healthcare professionals across Alberta.
