Client Testimonials
I initially began my nutrition plan with Skylar after my first semester at graduate school. I exercise on a regular basis, but after working during the day and going to class at night I put on extra weight due to the stress and poor dietary habits. I knew I had to make a change. As a nutritionist, she has a wonderful way of personalizing each session and was extremely helpful with snack and meal ideas. She had me keep a journal of my daily food intake and guided me towards proper serving sizes. I thought I knew the basics about nutrition, but Skylar taught me how to really read food labels and how much of my diet should consist of protein, carbohydrates and fat. I learned to recognize unhealthy habits and eat mindfully. I am heading to my goal weight and have never felt better! I cannot possibly be more pleased with her guidance. I highly recommend her if you have any questions or concerns about nutrition.

Working with Skylar was a fabulous experience for me and my family. Having Skylar come into our home and look through what we were typically eating allowed a more personalized experience. Skylar breaks nutrition down into real-life terms, and dispels the all the quack information out there. I would highly recommend working with Skylar to any of my friends or family.

We met Skylar years ago when as a dad I was frustrated that everywhere my kids went they were eating chicken nuggets, pasta and pizza 90% of the time. We invited all of our friends with similar aged children to come over for a informal seminar that I named “No more chicken nuggets!” During the seminar Skylar educated us on how to properly read food labels, food terms and buzz words as well as food and nutrition methods that got our children excited for new foods. It was a huge success with all of the other parents. Skylar also helped us with everyday activities such as going to Whole Foods to walk the aisles; it was quite a different shopping experience! Since then we have had Skylar back every 6 months or so to not only fine tune the kids diets, but we have also had her focus on our own diets and see where various improvements can be made. Skylar has been instrumental in us living a healthier lifestyle not only at home, but out in the real world.

Skylar has taught me so much about nutrition and habits to stay healthy. As someone who used to rely on crash diets and quick fixes, with her help, I’ve been able to drastically improve my health and eating habits with small changes over time.
