I contacted Ellen six weeks ago for help with menopausal weight gain, bloating, digestive issues, and negative body composition changes. She addressed every question that I had, and helped me to formulate goals, while providing me with the strategies I needed to reach my goals. Ellen helped me minimize bloating by using several products that she recommended. I am a vegetarian, which made eating enough protein more difficult. Ellen helped me to find new ways of adding more protein to my diet, and she helped me to restructure my meals, so that I was getting a big hit of protein after working out. The thing that I like the best about Ellen, is that she is easy to talk to. She listens, and if one of her suggestions doesn't work, she comes up with alternative solutions to fix the problem. When I first reached out to Ellen, I was frustrated and discouraged.  Nothing that I was doing was working, and I felt out of control. I didn't know how to get myself back on track. Here I am, six weeks later, with a solid plan for exercise and diet. I've lost almost 5 pounds and I've noticed positive changes in my body composition.  My stomach is no longer bloated like it was, and my digestive issues (stomach pain and gas) have improved significantly.

Weight loss, Bloating, Menopausal Changes

After much consideration, I realized I needed a nutrionist in order to compliment my existing meal plan and exercise regimen. My weight plateaued and I needed help. I did some research online -- reviewing several websites and social media accounts and Ellen was the clear winner. Her philosophy made sense to me. I began working with her almost two years after recovering from breast cancer. I wanted to make sure I was eating the right foods, measuring/weighing my food correctly but also eating the best supplements before and after my strength training workouts. I dropped 20 pounds and now I have a better understanding of foods that I previously thought were my enemy. Ellen is easy to talk to and always available. Ellen is very supportive, and I look forward to working with her again in the future.

Weight loss, Positive relationship with food

Working with Ellen has made me feel in control of my autoimmune condition for the first time since diagnosis over 10 years ago. Having Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis has meant a constant struggle with energy and weight since day one.  Every article you read or doctor you see has a different opinion on how diet does or doesn’t impact your condition.  Ellen gave me tools that allowed me the freedom to figure out what was best for my body and how it is effected by my condition.  I was not Hashimoto’s to her. I was her patient who had goals and also happened to have Hashimoto’s.

 

With Ellen’s help I now have a healthy relationship with food and know how to use it to best fuel my body for optimal energy and overall health.  Using the tools Ellen gave me I have lost almost 40lbs and for the first time I am actually keeping the weight off. She doesn’t have you focus on counting calories or depriving yourself of things you love, but helps you to make healthier choices, fuel your body so that you don’t get the unbearable cravings and to not consider food a reward but fuel so when you enjoy one of your favorite indulgences you do so responsibly.

Autoimmune Hashimoto's, Weight loss, Positive relationship with food

I have been a diabetic for 28 years and have had a dozen nutritionists on my journey.  But Ellen has been my nutritionist the longest by a long shot.  She became my nutritionist  at a time when my exercise program was negatively affecting my blood sugar. I also needed her help in making sure I was getting enough of the right vitamins and minerals.  I worked with Ellen to make healthy diet changes including preparing more food myself.  With Ellen's guidance, my efforts have brought me into a new world of health and fitness.  Ellen has given me hopes to be able to play with my great grandchildren.

Client Success Stories 

Working with Ellen has given me the tools to a healthier lifestyle and has set me on a positive journey! I'm feeling stronger every day in the food choices I make.

I started seeing Ellen in mid 2019 due to various health issues. I was overweight, glucose, A1C, cholesterol levels were above normal.  Ellen was what I needed to get on track.  I had finally found someone who was able only to help me understand about diet and nutrition, but also explain it to me so that I understood it.  I had spent years trying various diets, but never keeping the weight off.  Once I understood the problem, the weight came off.  It has not been easy, and yes, I cheat but as I’ve learned it’s OK to cheat as long as you continue to make the right choices in the long run. As of today, I am down 74 lbs, and all my blood levels are within the normal range. I walk daily and I run 3x a week – I can now run a 5k.  Something I couldn’t do in 2019. I cannot thank her enough.

Working with Ellen has totally changed my relationship with food.  I can now eat the things I want and maintain the body I want without feeling guilty.  She helped me see that it’s all about finding the balance and what works for you!  Through our working together I have exceeded my weight loss goal and have now lost 25lbs! If I can do it, you can too!

I have been working with Ellen to help me get healthy. She has taught me how to look at food differently. I now know what to eat to do that. Because of Ellen my diabetes is in remission and my cholesterol is under control. I have lost a lot of weight and know how to keep off. Ellen is very kind and supportive and always gave me 100% support.
