A fellow swimmer referred me to Katie. I hadn’t seen my swimmer friend for a couple months. When I returned to the pool she not only moved up to a faster swim lane but she was noticeably more lean and fit. I asked her how she did it and she told me about Katie. I signed up that day and for the past 3 months, I have not been disappointed.
I quickly learned from Day 1 that Katie does not employ a “one size fits all” approach to nutrition. She spent the first couple of days understanding my current diet and workout regime. Only after getting to know me did she begin to tailor a nutrition plan just for me! I am a 58 year old ultra marathon trail runner with over 40 years of experience in athletics and nutrition. Nutritional “experts” have helped me before but all tended to use “cookie cutter” type plans that did not allow for my specific tastes or athletic needs. Katie’s plan is 100% all about me … my likes, dislikes, my training as it differs day-to-day, times when I need fuel and times I don’t. I get a detailed menu for every day of the week that includes menus, recipes, and a shopping list. The recipes can be as complicated or easy as YOU want. I regularly text Katie with questions—her response is ALWAYS quick and to the point. And I get a weekly one-on-one phone consultation with her on a variety of topics. She has already revamped my fueling during training and competitions (something I thought I already knew everything about), making a huge difference in my ability to go longer without any sinking spells.
My complexion immediately took on a glow as the plan included more good fat (avocados and nuts) then I had ever eaten before. I’ve become leaner with the loss 10 pounds. My training and racing are stronger than ever. And a huge unexpected plus is I’m OFF diet drinks and artificial sweeteners…something I’ve battled for over 40 years. Katie’s explanation of why it must be done made so much sense to me…finally!
I highly recommend using Katie and her staff at OWN Nutrition for any number of reasons … weight loss, performance, or just to start eating a super healthy diet created just for you!
