Individual Online Nutrition Consulting

Is this you?

Meticulously counting calories. Restricting yourself from your favorite foods. Bingeing later on. Restarting your diet the following week. Trying a new diet after the last one didn't go as planned. Forcing yourself to maintain a workout routine you loathe. Feeling anxious and uneasy around food. Obsessive thoughts about food. Feeling shameful about your food choices. Unhappy with the person looking back at you in the mirror. 

If so, I hear you and understand how that feels. Thankfully, life doesn't have to be this way. 

Nicole Merryman Nutrition offers an alternative approach to restrictive dieting. With balanced nutrition therapy, you can achieve a healthy relationship with food and your body for long-term health and happiness. If you want to ditch the diet mentality and meet your goals in a joyful way, then you're in the right place.

How it Works

Free 30-Minute Discovery Session


Start out by booking a free, 30-minute video session using the button below. This provides a chance for us to introduce ourselves and determine if working together is the best fit for you. I will share what you can expect from our sessions together and you can ask any questions you may have before you book an initial appointment.

60-Minute Initial Session


Before our first session together, I will ask you to fill out a comprehensive nutrition history form for my review, so I can gain a better understanding of your background, current challenges, and goals. Our initial session will be a chance for me to get to know you better and work with you to develop a plan for moving forward, so you can gain traction on meeting your nutrition goals.

30-Minute Follow-up Sessions

There are a few different options for follow-up sessions. You can either book them on an individual basis or purchase one of the session packages I offer. Session packages offer a few additional services that would benefit those seeking long-term support. Each follow-up is 30 minutes long.
