I think this is the third time I’ve “officially quit the blog”. I really enjoy blogging, but especially now that I have a baby on the way I’m realizing just how much time it takes up in my already busy life. As I let go of my blog, I wanted to share how you can stay in touch with me by setting up an appointment for dietary consultation and/or let me review your diet and make suggestions. Here is what I offer;
- One-on-One personal dietary consultations, in-person: Meet with me for an hour and allow me to review your current diet, provide suggestions, and send you off with a list of goals and ideas for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I specialize in weight loss, weight gain, weight maintenance, and low FODMAPs diets.
- One-on-One personal dietary consultations, via phone: If you don’t live in Columbus I can still do a complete dietary consultation with you, just as described above. We just chat on the phone instead of meeting in person. Payments are made via PayPal.
- Quick diet reviews: For $10 I will take a look at your current diet and send you three specific goals and suggestions, based on your current dietary needs and personal long-term or short-term goals. Clients record three to four typical days of eating (including one weekend day) on My Fitness Pal or another similar program, and then I review and provide suggestions. It’s a great way to jumpstart any new healthy lifestyle plan.

Since starting this blog over five years ago, I’ve met a lot of wonderful foodies and dietitians. I say “met”, although in truth I’ve actually only met four bloggers in person. But you know how it feels to read someone’s blog almost daily and truly feel like you know them. Lauren Slayton is one of those bloggers. She is a dietitian who’s philosophies about nutrition and health remind me a lot of my own. Yes, we’ve disagreed on things in the past (and neither of us seems to hold back our opinions in each other’s comment sections) but overall we’re on the same page. Speaking of pages, she has a new book; The Little Book of ThinHowever you decide to go about achieving your weight loss and maintenance goals this year, and beyond, I want to reiterate the importance of not just reading a book or finding an online diet or weight loss program. It’s really important to find real physical and emotional support. Whether it’s a friend who is going along on the journey with you, or a dietitian who will be there to support and guide you (I suggest both, but most importantly the latter). If you want that dietitian to be me, please, get in touch! And don’t forget, I’ll still be sharing my photos and recipes via Pinterest, Facebook, and Instagram , so I’ll see you there!
