Hi! I am a woman on a mission to help others learn to eat the right foods, but still enjoy eating! My own personal health challenges with high cholesterol and most likely un-diagnosed pre-diabetes took me down a rough journey to change the way I ate and the way I managed stress. I had very little support from my very busy doctor who wanted to put me on medication without even discussing healthy eating! That was 10 years ago, and still today, doctors are too busy to take the time to counsel patients or at least give them a list of health coaches/nutritionists to guide them.
After talking with so many friends and coworkers about how hard it is to know what they see online or in cook books is really the best for for them... I decided it was time to do something.
I wanted to educate myself and be equipped to properly help others. So I completed the Health Coaching Program from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition’s cutting-edge Health Coach Training Program. During my training, I studied over 100 dietary theories, practical lifestyle management techniques, and innovative coaching methods with some of the world’s top health and wellness experts. My teachers included Dr. Andrew Weil, Director of the Arizona Center for Integrative Medicine; Dr. Deepak Chopra, leader in the field of mind-body medicine; Dr. David Katz, Director of Yale University’s Prevention Research Center; Dr. Walter Willett, Chair of Nutrition at Harvard University; Geneen Roth, bestselling author and expert on emotional eating; and many other leading researchers and nutrition authorities.
I hope the information is helpful and makes it much easier for you to get healthy and still enjoy eating! If you have any questions, please contact me at Donna@DonnaRock.com
