What Clients Are Saying
"My daughter has been seeing Justine for several months, after we received some troubling bloodwork during a routine physical. I love that Justine focused on healthy choices and proper nutrition as opposed to calories or specific things that she can and cannot eat. The focus was definitely on health as opposed to the number on the scale which was important to me although weight loss was certainly a goal of ours. Her nutrition plan was made up entirely of foods that she Enjoys to eat and is really something that we hope can be followed lifelong.Justine’s easy-going nature and ability to listen really have played a role in my daughter’s success"

“I wanted to work with a nutritionist who would both feel like a friend to me but also not let me off the hook and excuse everything I did. I have spend over 20 years reading every book and doing every diet and so i warned Justine that there wouldn’t be much she could teach me. I was wrong. Through working with Justine, I learned to find a new voice in my head - not the voice that says “go on, eat that, you deserve it” and not the voice that says “omg i cant believe you ate like that. Tomorrow you need to just drink water” but a third voice; an adult, rational kind voice. I learned how to make better choices with my food, without feeling like I was being punished, and even after years have now gone by since we worked together, her teachings have stuck with me and help guide me on a daily basis”

I'm 50, and Over the last few years I had tried intermittent dieting, among other diets, and despite the fact that I felt like I was barely eating two meals a day and I was careful about exercise, I couldn't lose the extra weight that was slowly building up on my belly and my hips. I heard about Justine, and she came highly recommended, so I decided to treat myself to a few sessions with her. She was extremely thorough as she collected data about my eating habits and my health concerns, and then she created a meal plan - not a diet! - that was specifically tailored for me. As it turned out, I wasn't eating enough - how crazy is that?!
I started eating the right foods in the right quantities (carbs!!!) And I went from barely eating two meals a day with little to no carbs, to eating 3 square balanced meals PLUS two snacks at specific times. My meal plan consisted of all the foods I love to eat, and I'm loving it. It isn't a diet, but a way of life, a way to keep healthy and trim while still enjoying food. I was eating MUCH more than I was used to, kept up my exercise routine, and the centimetres started to come off everywhere. It's been barely 3 months, and I lost 12 cm off my hips, and 9 off my belly. My back fat is almost non existent and my clothes are hanging off me. More importantly, I feel amazing about myself.
If you're looking to change your appearance and stop the extra pounds from settling on your body, and feel great about yourself, call Justine.

I wanted to share a huge win with you and thank you so much for helping me get to this point!
For the first time today I didn't weigh or measure my dinner, but rather used your guidance about taking as much as I felt was right for me. Usually I would have had more but instead I started with a smaller amount and was able to stop when I felt comfortable and not too full.
For the first time I feel that I have turned a corner in my relationship with food.
I feel that I can trust myself again
I am so grateful!!!
