Client Results

 "I really truly believe that this has helped transform my life. I have gone from feeling miserable and honestly depressed and very stressed around food to now feeling excited to cook and to eat, there's not so much worry, I feel more alive. I feel happier and healthier, which is my goal.” - Kristin

 “I have never felt heard and taken seriously about my health issues, questions, and need for additional support. This has been the best investment in my health and happiness.”  - Caren

 “If you're looking for help, then this is a very supportive and warm environment to try and shift your own self-worth and self-awareness.” - Ann

 “There is no one-size-fits-all to health. Having someone guide me as I figure out what works for ME has been invaluable." - Alyssa

“Food was the enemy I fought most of my life. Now Food is my friend and ally. I am free finally of dieting. I enjoy food again.” — Karen C.

“Before I was constantly swinging from all in to all out, consumed with food guilt and frustration that I was stuck. Now I feel I understand my body better, and that I have better tools to determine what I need while still enjoying food. It's life changing, no joke! It's a perfect blend of habit change and compassion building to truly find your balance and enjoy life.” — Sara L.

“I was feeling overwhelmed about food and the best way to nourish myself, a bit stuck and worn out with it all, now I feel much clearer, calmer and at ease around food and I’m much more in tune with what works for me. There are so many diet programmes out there but this is totally different, it delves so much deeper and helps you to take the time to really reflect on what is right for you as an individual and gives you so many tools to help.” — Emma S.

“Before MNM, I was at war with my body and food. Now, I am working with my body and happy to have food as a tool for nourishment and enjoyment instead of the enemy.” — Autumn T.

“Before this MNM course I was completely chaotic in my food choices. I am still not perfect but McKel helped me remember that it’s actually not about perfection at all. It’s about knowing what right for my own body and my life. Thank you thank you thank you!” — Alissa W.

“MNM transformed my life. It’s not the nutrition help I needed, it was the mindset help. There aren’t many programs out there that combine nutrition and mindset in this way.” — Jessie S.
