"I had spent much of my adult life eating whatever I wanted, whenever I wanted when I finally woke up one morning and realized that a change was needed for the sake of my health. I was at a loss on how to alter my eating habits, I just knew I had to.  Then, I began working with Melissa.  She helped me realize the importance of vegetables and protein in a well balanced diet.  I started  keeping a food journal and saw the areas where I was falling short.  Besides the diet coaching, she also provided me with articles pertaining to my dietary needs, new recipes when I became bored with my meal choices, always using foods that I liked. As a yoga instructor, Melissa also offered me exercise options to increase my metabolism and target areas of concern that I had.

Melissa Osterberg is an outstanding nutritionist and encompasses full body health in her sessions.  I would highly recommend Melissa to anyone who is interested in making changes towards a more healthy lifestyle."
