Nutrition Spotlight - Laura Sidener

What prompted you to start nutrition coaching with DeNovo Nutrition?

I participated in the nutrition challenge this past fall and enjoyed learning more about Healthy Steps Nutrition and the holistic approach. The support from the coaching, and the comrades in the group made me realize I needed some extra help for long term success.

I’m sleeping well and have had a clear, confident head.  I’ve felt really great physically, eating a balanced diet and cutting out alcohol. I find myself excited to fuel myself with healthy foods.

What are 2-3 things that you LOST?

Shame and negativity around the all or nothing mentality. Fear that I can’t do this because…..I’m doing it!

I’m in control of what counts!

Consistency with healthy eating habits

Accountability, Jenny believes in me which helps me believe in myself,  the confidentiality of the coaches -clients can be vulnerable and honest.
