I will help you feed your gut. Yes, as strange as that may seem, your gut is the key to losing weight and boosting your immune system and preventing cancer, diabetes and heart disease. There are both good and bad microbes in our intestines that release proteins that impact digestion and interact with our body in either good or bad ways. Increasing your dietary fiber will promote the growth of the healthy intestinal bacteria that promotes weight loss, lowers blood sugars and improves cholesterol. I will help you find those foods that you enjoy and promote a healthy gut so you can lose weight, be healthier and feel better!

In Person, On the Phone or Over Skype, I can help

I will help you to feel and look better.  I will teach you why certain foods will keep you fuller and help you lose weight. I will support you on your journey while you find new habits that help you lose and keep the weight off!

“Barbara is everything you could wish for in a Health Coach. I have a family history of diabetes and since I began, I have lost 30 pounds and my A1C level has dropped from 5.6 to 5.2. Barbara is a smart, supportive, humorous, task oriented professional, who is research based in her approach. I doubt one could find a more qualified person to be their Health Coach and I highly recommend her.”

“I have struggled with my weight for decades.  After working with Barbara, since September 2012, I now feel confident with my relationship with food. Through her unique ability to teach and present and then encourage my personal journey, I have made positive lifestyle changes. Some of these changes have resulted in my wanting to exercise and I have learned to prioritize my meal planning.  I see the rewards of those changes in my having more energy and continued weight loss. I look forward to time with Barbara & especially enjoy her sense of humor.”

“I am a family nurse practitioner who has referred many of my patients to Barbara. I was lucky enough to have the unique opportunity to sit in during one of her classes to experience her work. Barbara has an incredible knowledge base and is able to connect with people on a level I have not seen before. She is able to explain complex medical conditions in a clear and understanding way. She is able to work together with people to make reasonable, healthy lifestyle changes. I have seen significant improvement in my patient’s medical conditions including their obesity, diabetes or pre diabetes, hypertension and hypercholesterolemia. I have also seen drastic changes in people’s self confidence and happiness! I highly recommend Barbara and will continue to refer her to my patients!”

“Barbara is a great health coach. She really delves in, asking the right questions to help one understand where changes can be made…even if they are baby steps. Some great examples are: switch up your half and half for non-fat half and half or equal parts of both, use non-fat Greek yogurt instead of sour cream, decrease the oil and eggs in your muffins and replace with non-fat Greek yogurt, or walk or ride your bike to the corner store instead of driving.  Barbara has a great passion for helping others develop and maintain a healthy life style.”

“Barbara’s group was instrumental in shaking me out of dietary doldrums and bringing a lot more awareness to food, exercise and necessary choices. Barbara’s presentation skills are excellent. Professional, warm and engaging, starting and finishing on time every week while covering all the material, she is great at helping us to stay on track and very good at what she does.”

“I am a retired registered pharmacist and have been seeing Barb for 3 years. I am 71 years old and am on the cusp of type II diabetes. My primary suggested I see Barb to help me get on track to controlling the situation. My visits with Barb put me on the right track. She helped me change my life style. I have been doing great with her guidance to help me. I now make better dietary choices and exercising on a regular basis. I did see her monthly and then went to every 3 months to keep me on track. She helped me set up a schedule and keep a record of my food intake and exercise. She was a great help .”
