"I can take baby steps towards living a healthier life."

"Before deciding to try McKel’s framework, I didn’t think I’d have the time or willpower to really change my lifestyle and eating behaviors.After experiencing the framework, I've realized that I can take baby steps towards living a healthier life and I’m encouraged to make the guidance my own, listen to my body and find the routines that work best for me.I now have the tools to sustain this healthy lifestyle — they serve as a reference guide that I can return to time and time again!

"I have food freedom now."
"I have food freedom now, I eat a ton of different foods and never feel restricted. I just kinda like moved some portions around, fine tuned what types of carbs I enjoy, eat way more consistently, also like the different oils I use to cook and how much. It was literal nutrition/lifestyle therapy.”

— Abagail

"It encompasses so much more than the standard approach to nutrition."

"The Method is such a wonderful way of learning everything you need to bring to the table to stay well! It encompasses so much more than the standard approach to nutrition and really teaches you how to slow step your way to finding your unique wellness regime, which was so crucial for me as I like to take things one step at a time!"


"It's not all or nothing."

"My biggest takeaway from The Method was learning that life flows and I should try and flow with it. It's not "all or nothing". Balance is okay, setbacks are not the end of the world, and small wins mean everything...I am now setup with tools that I feel I can use throughout this journey and for that I am so grateful."

"If you're considering this program, DO IT. Run don’t walk!"

If you're considering this program, DO IT. Run don’t walk! This is a fantastic long-run investment of your time and attention. The videos are such a good avenue for checking in on how you are really living. The videos alone felt like enough to warrant the time and resources to work through this program. However, there is more!

The robust resources and tools the NS team has compiled is extraordinary. I am already excited to work through the content again as my life evolves. I’m sure I will hear new things and engage new thoughts during future life chapters. Highly recommend for today and for long-term use!


"Positive impact has occurred without following a diet."

There has been a very positive impact on my lifestyle. And it's important to note is that this positive impact has occurred without following a "diet." I am pausing and checking in regularly. This allows me to make better choices with ease and without a sense of deprivation.
