In an email, Jane asked if I could recommend a nutritionist, “A woman I work with who is only about 30 years old has high cholesterol. She is into yoga but has terrible eating habits (at least until she had a 260 cholesterol number last week). She is looking for a nutritionist to help her get better eating habits and working with her schedule. She is a busy woman, she is a (project manager for a busy building company), does yoga a lot, and goes to graduate school at night.”
I highly recommend Nutrition Counselor, Ellen Kittredge. She understands that changing eating habits can be challenging, even monumental. She has her clients make small changes at a time, rather than having them completely revamp their fridge and pantry. Ellen understands there is no one-diet-fits-all and everyone responds to food differently.
Some people do want to make big changes to their nutritional habits. For them, Ellen offers a 21-day cleanse twice per year. I have participated in 3 of her cleanses myself. During my first experience, I discovered I have intolerances to gluten and cow dairy. My eating habits have changed quite a bit from that experience.
Ellen works with clients in person in the DC area but she also offers counseling by phone. She understands that people have busy schedules but she also encourages her clients to take time for their health.
Ellen will offer her 21-day this fall. In fact, I am creating a movement program to coincide with her cleanse. We will make the announcement in the next couple weeks.
Ellen will also make some guest appearances here on the Spitfire Blog. To contact Ellen, visit her website at ellenkittredge.com.
