Work With Me




Thank you for your interest in ketogenic nutrition. I am not currently providing long-term, ongoing coaching but I am available for targeted consultations.

Start here:  

Read about a consultation below, and if you are interested in proceeding, please send me an email introducing yourself. Tell me about yourself and why you’re looking for help with a ketogenic or low-carb diet. Be sure to let me know about any medical conditions you have been formally diagnosed with, and whether you’re already following a ketogenic or low-carb diet, or if this type of nutritional strategy will be new to you. If your inquiry is specifically about weight loss, please tell me your age, height, current weight, how long you have been at this weight, and what your historical highest weight was in the past. I cannot reply to you without this information. Please save us both time. 

General consultation: $225

  • Initial consultation -- 60 minutes by phone, Zoom, Skype, or WhatsApp
  • Includes 2 follow-ups (15-30 minutes)
  • Additional follow-ups or check-ins can be arranged afterward.


Consultations will be guided by your individual situation and goals, but may include:

  • Guidance on getting started with a low carb or ketogenic diet
  • Troubleshooting if you’ve already been following a low carb or ketogenic diet for a while and are not getting the results you want – this is very common! 
  • Help with fat loss if you're stuck in a stall or plateau. (Check out my book, The Stall Slayer, for help with this as well.)
  • Keto reality check. Do you feel totally overwhelmed and confused by conflicting and crazy-sounding advice out there about keto? No idea what to do anymore? I'll help you tune out the noise and get clarity. (I also recommend reading this blog post.)
  • Evaluating a food journal or tracking app
  • “Pick my brain” – answers to general questions about the ketogenic/low carb way of eating
  • Education regarding how & why this way of eating works if you’d like to understand the science behind this approach
  • Help interpreting lab tests & bloodwork in the context of dietary changes and overall nutritional strategy. (I am not a physician and do not diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease.)
  • Recommendations for lab testing that may help identify hidden obstacles/roadblocks to achieving your desired results
  • Tips for eating keto on a budget
  • How to stay keto/low carb while traveling or on the road
  • Quick & easy meal prep ideas
  • Recommendations for nutritional supplements, if warranted 

Please note: I do not create meal plans or recipes. My goal is to show you how simple & easy it is to eat keto/low carb without a meal plan. Once you have some basic knowledge, this is extremely simple and straightforward. It doesn’t have to be complicated or expensive. You don’t have to weigh and measure all your food, or use pricey and complicated gadgets, contraptions, and apps to be successful. I can recommend meal plan services and keto cookbooks and recipe websites, but truly, this really is much simpler than many have led you to believe.



In the meantime, if you’re looking for a physician or nutritionist to provide detailed, long-term guidance and support for a low-carbohydrate or ketogenic way of eating, I recommend the following:


Athletes
If you are an endurance athlete in training (or looking to train) for a specific race or event while following a ketogenic way of eating, I recommend coach Stephanie Holbrook at Keto Endurance.

If you’re a bodybuilder or someone looking to get started with bodybuilding or just general weightlifting at any level, beginner or expert, and you want to stay within a low carb or ketogenic framework, the best way to go is coaching through KetoGains or with Gabe Rivera at Ancient Gains. If you are a female interested in keto nutrition and fitness together, I recommend coach and trainer Lauren Berryhill


Cancer
If you are looking for guidance in implementing or troubleshooting a ketogenic diet as adjunct therapy for cancer, I recommend the nutritionists at Remission Nutrition.
I also suggest the following books for this specific application of the ketogenic diet:


Neurological and Neurodegenerative Disorders
If you’re looking for professional guidance in implementing a ketogenic diet for a neurological or neurodegenerative condition (epilepsy, Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, multiple sclerosis, etc.), you’ll find practitioners with a great deal of experience at The Charlie Foundation. (You might be able to find a practitioner in your local area, but all of these professionals work with clients remotely/long-distance as well, so you shouldn’t have any problem finding a good match for you.) 

I also recommend the following books:


Type 1 Diabetes
The place to start regarding the ketogenic diet for type 1 diabetes is “the type 1 bible” -- Dr. Bernstein's Diabetes Solution: The Complete Guide to Achieving Normal Blood Sugars


My recommendation for a nutritionist for type 1 is Franziska Spritzler.
