Certified Nutritional Psychologist in Fresno

Nutritional Therapy Fresno

You are tired all the time, eat out far too much, have problems with weight or have been given bad news from your doctor that requires immediate changes.

Has your doctor told you that you need to loose weight or eat healthier and you feel lost with no idea where to start.  You have watched many infomercials or YouTube, talked to a friend or bought a book to help with weight loss but still no changes. So you are sitting and pondering what does this mean for my future? Does speaking to the doctor answer some questions about gut issues, pain or your mood, but still feel lost. 

You May Find Yourself:

  • Overeating or eating when bored, sad or upset

  • Eating a high amount of processed foods or simple carbohydrates (junk food)

  • Feeling fatigued especially after eating

  • Feeling tired mid-afternoon

  • Insomnia

  • Irritation with bowels - constipation or diarrhea

We Can Teach You:

  • How to eat in moderation without feeling hungry

  • How to use food as fuel and not for comfort

  • About the risks of processed food and to understand the addiction of sugar

  • How to put your food together in a meal for optimal energy

  • About mid-afternoon fatigue and how to avoid it

  • How food impacts your ability to get a good nights rest

  • How to focus on food choices to reduce gut issues

Change the way you see food and use it as a source of fuel rather than for comfort.

Fad Diets

Fad diets have dominated our society for many years. The reason they are so widely known and used is because of their “quick fix” nature. However, fad diets are just that a fad. They will help to reduce weight, often in an unhealthy manner but then when the weight comes off there is no sound way of maintaining this restrictive way of eating. So then what happens is the body responds to the restriction by signaling the brain that it needs more food. Essentially the end result is gaining the weight back plus more as the body is unable to turn off the hunger response. This is what we all know as “yo-yo dieting.” If anyone has struggled with weight I don’t have to explain what that is as you have done it many times.

The Essentials to Healthy Eating

Healthy eating is not intuitive as the American Diet has our brains and bodies fooled that fast is better, boxed is healthy and the front of the label gives the low down on the product. However, I am here to tell you that if you are struggling trying to sort through all the information of what is healthy and what is not I completely understand. I was in your position at one time myself. However, I am doing as you are and that is looking for information. Not just any information but information that will help me fuel my body appropriately as guided by science rather than by speed of results. What you must know about healthy eating:

  • Eating the 3 food groups are a must (Protein, Carbohydrates, Fats)

  • You must eat a balance of those food groups so no low carb or Keto diet will do

  • You must eat plenty of fruits and veggies to get essential vitamins

  • Drinking water is important (don’t skip on the filtered or alkaline water)

  • Healthy sleeping habits prepare you for a day of healthy eating

  • You do not have to eat meat and dairy to be healthy

  • Be mindful of low-fat and no-fat labels on food

  • Processed foods are unhealthy and usually full of unneeded carbohydrates and sugar

  • Not all sugar is the same - sugar from fruit is healthy for you; sugar from processed and junk food is not

I can guide you to understand the root of how your current nutrition comforts your moods. I can educate you on the function of food in a healthy manner and guide you to understand your current eating habits.  I will educate you on how to tweak your meals to get the best out of your body so that you can relieve pain, improve moods, loose weight and regain control of your life.

Being healthy and optimizing your nutrition is a challenging process. However, most people are not educated on how food works in the human body. So rest assured, I can teach you how food can once and for all serve it's best purpose for your body and allow you to regain control.
