I’ll send you monthly motivation!

Hi! I’m Kristy.

I’m a Certified Holistic Health Coach, which means that I look at how all areas of your life are connected in order to not only offer nutritional advice, but also guide my clients in creating healthy lifestyle habits by achieving physical and psychological balance. I don’t believe in dieting. Diets have an end date. A healthy lifestyle doesn’t.

Are you on a constant rollercoaster ride with your weight? Up 15 pounds, down 10 pounds and back up again? I know what that’s like, because I’ve been there, and it doesn’t have to be that way.

Testimonials

Cristina Cartagena

I worked with Kristy for about 6 months and her program dramatically changed my eating habits. I had three goals: 1. Loose 15 pounds, 2. Learn how to eat to maintain weight loss and 3. Improve my relationship with food. I can proudly say, I met all three of my goals and Kristy exceeded my expectations. Kristy begins by analyzing your current eating habits and food preferences. She then slowly introduces new recipes, cooking techniques, smart shopping, natural supplements, vitamins and an overall approach to eating clean.  After every session, I gained knowledge about food and nutrition. I wanted to have guidelines but not be overwhelmed with rules and restrictions. I never felt like I was sacrificing my life style or on a “diet". Kristy taught me to make better food choices in all situations and understand how my body reacts to certain foods. I no longer reward myself with food or eat to comfort myself. I now fuel and nourish myself with a balanced and satisfying diet. My skin is clear, I sleep more consistently and I overall feel better. I 100% recommend Kristy Rao!
