Individual Online Nutrition Consulting
Are you ready to create a healthy lifestyle with your happiness and well-being at the forefront? Do you want to reach your health and wellness goals without restrictive diets? Check out my philosophy, mission and what to expect from working with me below!
In my practice, I provide 1-on-1 virtual education and support to those seeking assistance with:
General health and wellness
Disordered eating patterns such as:
Cycles of restriction and binge eating
Extremely rigid dietary patterns
A general preoccupation or obsession with food that interferes with daily life
Frequent weight fluctuations
Guilt, shame or stress associated with eating
Chronic health conditions (diabetes, heart disease, kidney disease)
My Philosophy and Mission
It is hard to keep up with all the latest dieting trends. No gluten, no carbs, no fat… the "rules" are always changing! The amount of conflicting information and misinformation out there certainly does not help us. Most diets promote restriction and a list of food rules to follow. Often, this leads to feelings of deprivation and stress around eating. It can ultimately lead to a poor relationship with food and a lack of trust in ourselves and our ability to make good choices. Research has shown us that diets do not work and do not promote long-term health or well-being. I can help you break free from dieting so you can build the healthy lifestyle that is best for you, without any guilt, shame or deprivation.
There is no “one size fits all” approach to living a healthy lifestyle. I provide individualized consulting, so we can work together to help you create a healthy lifestyle with your personal needs and preferences in mind. I place importance on adopting mindful eating practices and forming a healthy relationship with food. By teaching mindful eating principles, my goal is to help you become more in tune with your body’s natural hunger, fullness and satiety cues. This way, you do not have to rely heavily on external sources, such as diet rules, to guide your choices. Finding balance, being aware of what your body is telling you and practicing mindfulness are all key to your health and well-being. My goal is to help you take the stress out of eating so you can focus on enjoying life. With one-on-one consulting, I will provide evidence-based information paired with the right tools and resources to help you see food and nutrition as a source of joy and celebration.
At Nicole Merryman Nutrition, my mission is to help adults who feel frustrated with restrictive dieting methods by teaching them simple, mindful and sustainable practices that can help them achieve their health and wellness goals while celebrating food.
