Work With Me




Thank you for your interest in a nutrition consultation. See below for the options I currently offer.

First, though, if you have not already contacted me by email, start here:

Please send me an email introducing yourself. Tell me a little bit about yourself, and why you’re looking for a ketogenic/low carb nutritionist. Be sure to let me know about any medical conditions you have been formally diagnosed with, and whether you’re already following a ketogenic, low-carb, Paleo, or Primal style 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. 

My email address: tuitnutrition@gmail.com


Consultations:

(All prices are in US dollars. I am available for consultations worldwide via Skype, but payment must be done in US dollars. I do not accept insurance. You can request reimbursement from your insurance company after the consultation, but you must arrange that on your own. I do not work with insurance companies.)

Please note that all consultations are one-on-one with me. You get my undivided attention and personalized recommendations for you. This is not a group call and there are no blanket recommendations as you will find with various keto coaching programs and subscription services.

Consultations will be guided by your individual situation, goals, and preferences, 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! Do you feel totally overwhelmed and confused by conflicting and crazy sounding advice out there about keto? Come get a reality check and sound science. (I also recommend reading this blog post.)
  • Evaluating a food journal
  • “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.

Grocery store tour (Available in the Raleigh/Durham, NC area)
Take me food shopping with you! I will meet you at your preferred local supermarket and help you navigate the murky world of food labels, nonsense marketing buzzwords, and how to find real, wholesome food that’s appropriate for your way of eating. This can be as general or as specific as you like: I can help you shop & stock a kitchen for a healthy low-carb, ketogenic, or Paleo/Primal diet in general, or make the shopping trip specific to your budget, taste preferences, individual recipes, etc.
$105 plus the cost of mileage if the store is more than 10 miles from me.*
*To avoid the mileage charge, you may opt to come to my local area, where I will accompany you to a nearby store comparable to one close to you.


Kitchen Cleanout & Pantry Purge
Out with the old, in with the new! I will come to your home and help you set up your kitchen to ensure your success on your new nutritional plan. If you’re brand new to healthier eating, we’ll start from scratch; if you’ve been following a plan for a while but aren’t seeing the results you were hoping for, we’ll get rid of common “diet saboteurs”—items you think fit within your nutritional strategy, but which might actually be hindering your progress, causing a weight-loss stall, etc. Hint: just because something is “keto” or “Paleo” doesn’t mean it’s right for your individual needs and goals.
$110.00 plus the cost of mileage if the destination is more than 10 miles from me.

Combined grocery store trip and kitchen cleanout: $199
Sign up for both and save!

Other Options for Keto Counseling

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:

If you’re looking for professional guidance for using ketogenic or low carb diets for a specific medical condition or to support athletic performance, see below for people who can help:

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.

Severe complications from type 2 diabetes - especially kidney disease; also, professional guidance on fasting

If you have type 2 diabetes or obesity, consider joining the Intensive Dietary Management Program or becoming a patient at HEAL Clinics.  Both of these programs accept patients worldwide. There is no requirement to be in their local areas unless you are taking certain medications, in which case you will need to meet in person with their medical staff.  Otherwise, they offer coaching by phone.

If you're specifically interested in incorporating fasting into your health regimen and would like professional guidance, Intensive Dietary Management is what you're looking for. 


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:

Keto for Cancer, by Miriam Kalamian
The Metabolic Approach to Cancer, by Nasha Winters and Jess Higgins Kelley


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.


Physicians and Other Medical Professionals*
If you’re looking for a physician or other type of doctor who’s friendly to low-carb and ketogenic approaches, search for someone in your area on these sites:


*I am networked with many low-carb and keto-friendly physicians, so if you don’t find anyone satisfactory in these listings, you are welcome to email me to see if I know of anyone in your local area. (Use the “contact me” button in the right sidebar on the website.)


Canada


United Kingdom and Ireland
If you’re in the UK or Ireland, I recommend looking for a GP on the site from Public Health Collaboration UK.
