"For the first time I was actually educated on the details that make a difference. I had all my questions answered and I had many. Most importantly, I was held accountable when it was needed."
"After 10 weeks of adjusting my eating habits (not dieting), and minimal added exercise (in the latter part of time period), I was able to reach my goals. My clothes fit amazing, I enjoy the food that I eat, and I don't feel that I am without, in terms of what I eat."
"After only a few weeks on her program, I felt like a new person. I had energy, my overall mood improved and I was looking great. With Julie, I lost about 18 lbs and went back to my normal weight."
"I was able to drop 10 lbs surprisingly easily—with just a few smart adjustments to my eating habits. "
"I have lost 20 pounds with minimal changes... She has introduced me to new foods, new meal ideas and how to satisfy cravings... The funny thing is I have never yet met face to face with Julie."
"I googled nutritionists in my area and found Julie, JM Nutrition and the rest is history! I’m now 30 pounds lighter, over 50 years old playing hockey and keeping up with 20 year olds. One of the best decisions I have ever made in my life!"
"I have lost 25 lbs. in about 5 months and have reduced my cholesterol from 8 to 4! My doctor has reduced my BP meds from 2 types to 1 and sees no need for cholesterol medication."
"I eat better, sleep better, exercise more and generally feel much better since establishing my program."
"...healthy nutrition plan that coincided with my lifestyle, my health needs, and my taste preferences. I was rarely hungry, and the whole thing was frankly quite easy. What's more, I still have the occasional slice of pizza or salsa and corn chip snack, with no harm done."
" I cannot be happier about my weight loss!! I didn’t think it would be this easy. Julie has a great way of making you feel comfortable and making the impossible seem possible. Her program has transformed me."
When working with you on your weight loss goals, we look at your health history, family, ethnic and cultural background, food sensitivities, food preferences, type of lifestyle, budget, religious restrictions, exercise, goals, medication, hormones, emotional health, habits, etc.
In addition, we thoroughly explore the underlying reasons why people gain weight and common weight loss obstacles. The educational component pertaining to weight loss is vital to success and highly valued by our clients.
Because people are different, we personalize the weight loss service to meet your specific needs and goals.
Furthermore, we co-create personalized weight loss meal plans to replace random, unplanned, impulsive food selections with a structured but flexible weight loss meal plan that is based on your food preferences, budget, lifestyle, sensitivities, etc.
Structure takes the guesswork out of food selections, removing the need for you to make decisions in your most vulnerable moments.
These healthy weight loss meal plans are simple enough to fit in your particular lifestyle, but specific enough to remove uncertainty and indecision.
What’s more, the weight loss meal plans will offer enough food variety and recipes to avoid boredom, but enough predictability so as to limit the opportunities where you’re stimulated by unhealthy temptations which, over time, can contribute to weight gain or sabotage weight loss.
When you establish new patterns and make healthier food selections, you can reintroduce some of your old favourites from time to time to avoid feeling total deprivation.
The weight loss plans will also indicate the appropriate quantities of each food: servings sizes, portions and proportions–an area where most people fall short, which often leads to unsuspecting weight gain. In addition, they will be accompanied by helpful resources such as:
As part of your weight loss program, you will also receive countless practical tips and strategies to lose weight. Many of these have been obtained through years of experience of the thousands of clients who came before you.
Others have been acquired via consultations with other medical professionals and health practitioners.
While others still, have been discovered through extensive research and reading the experts in the field of nutrition and weight loss. You can certainly be sure that the weight loss strategies are tried and tested, allowing for a high weight loss success rate.
Moreover, these weight loss tips and guidelines are an indirect support system that can help to navigate tricky situations without compelling you to do the legwork yourself. Many of our clients regularly use them as guidelines in their daily lives.
Last, our Registered Nutritionists and Registered Dietitians use the latest evidence-based and Science-backed information in helping you lose weight.
Exploring individual behaviour patterns also plays a large part in weight loss that is sustainable and long-lasting. A successful weight loss program must address this crucial component.
For this reason, we focus on changing firmly-established behaviours and bad habits which often undo much of the good work when you’re trying to manage or lose weight.
What’s more, we equip our weight loss clients with an arsenal of strategies to help form new behaviours that ultimately lead to greater resistance to unhealthy temptations and healthier food choices.
During the weight loss counselling sessions, we look at triggers that lead to stress or emotional eating, and provide specific ways to combat them. These practical tips and tools are invaluable for many of our clients.
All along the weight loss process we provide ongoing support by trained and highly qualified professionals who understand the challenges that come with making significant changes to your eating habits during your weight loss journey while holding you accountable.
