Hello. My name is Akeena St. Martin. I am a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist. I can take you from feeling frustrated about your current health to feeling motivated when you sustain healthy habits.
Many people want the magic pill that will instantly make them healthier and lose weight. If they keep trying restrictive diets and methods that promise to fix things quickly then they lose motivation because they are unable to maintain the results they achieve. However, if you receive health and wellness coaching then you can turn unsuccessful dieting around and instead live a healthier lifestyle that you can sustain.
- Become motivated
- Improve health
- Improve eating habits
- Build autonomy
- Enjoy life
I love working with adults looking to change their lives and seeing that eating healthier doesn’t have to be difficult or frustrating. I get that deciphering all of the different viewpoints on nutrition can be a daunting task.
Through health and wellness coaching, I help adults become motivated and help them take the driver’s seat with improving their health.
It brings me happiness to see people have their, “A-HA!” moment, when they achieve autonomy and achieve goals that they set for themselves, and realize that they don’t have to yo-yo diet, seek quick fixes, and losing motivation because what they tried didn’t work. I provide coaching to adults to that are not looking for quick fixes or someone to tell them what to do and that understand and they are in control so adults experience long lasting sustainable results. Change takes time.
My experiences have shown me that incorporating healthier eating habits does not have to be difficult.
When my father was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes mellitus, I knew knew my father wouldn’t listen to anything his doctors told him, which left me feeling uncertainty about whether or not his health would improve.
Instead, my father would ask questions related to his health and make his own decisions as to what he felt was best for him.
What did I learn from this?
I may be the Registered Dietitian Nutritionist. I may be the Nutrition expert. But YOU are the EXPERT of YOU.
Now I use my qualification as a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist to help adults achieve healthier eating habits that they feel they are able to maintain instead of following restrictive diets that are not sustainable and may be doing more harm than good.
I provide individualized nutrition and health coaching and nutrition education so adults can experience motivation and autonomy from the goals they set and achieve instead of the frustration from trying things that don’t work for them.
