Jess Carrier

Nutrition & Mindset Coach

Hi, I’m Jess! I’m here to help!

What I do…

I help my clients transform their mindset and navigate clean nutrition.  There are several unique ways to work with me from one on one coaching to my signature cleanse program. I have learned how to combine nutrition and psychology in order to help each person I work with as a whole, rather than a set of symptoms. I have studied how food can be used therapeutically to enhance health and improve quality of life. I will never reccomend a dangerous diet, juice cleanse, or ever mention calorie counting, like EVER. Feel free to reach out if you have any questions surrounding my credentials or scope of practice. 

My Nutrition Philosophy

Do The Best You Can With What You Have

Eat the best quality of food that you can possibly afford. Can’t afford organic? Invest in a great vegetable wash. Can’t afford Vitamin D supplements? Eat plenty of oranges and get outside in the sun!  Keeping a healthy lifestyle does not have to be expensive.

Put Your Gut FIRST

Your gut houses a large community of microbes. These microbes affect many functions of the body including; your immune system, neurological activity, and your metabolism. 

Listen To Your Body, Rather Than Counting Calories!

Our bodies are not calculators, and the calorie counting philosophy of “calories in and calories out”  often leads people to under eat and does not encourage them to focus on eating nutrient-dense foods. Instead of calorie counting, try journaling. How do you feel right now? What did you eat 24-36 hours ago? Pay attention to what your body is telling you.

Don't Eat It, Have it In Your Home, or Put It On Your Skin If You Cannot Pronounce It!

Eat Real Food! Food that comes from plants, animals, or the sea – not created in a lab. I don’t consider it to be “real” if I cannot pronounce it.  If you must do packaged or processed food, look for labels with fewer than 5 ingredients. 

Scope of Practice

As a Holistic Health Specialist and Transformational Nutrition Coach, I do not diagnose, treat, prescribe, interpret labs, cure or prevent any illness or disease, or practice medical nutritional therapy. Healing, I believe, is what the body is designed to do when given the right knowledge and tools. For medical & health care, consult with your trusted provider.

 

What are my credentials?

Certified Transformational Nutrition Coaches (CTNC) are modern day coaches guided by the philosophy that  nutrition is anything that feeds you physically, mentally, and spiritually.  

Modern-day concepts, not outdated, generic health advice.

We only study modern nutrition, scientific research, psychology, and coaching concepts – based in cutting-edge science – including the Transformational Nutrition Model that combines physical, mental, and spiritual nutrition.

ITN graduates challenge and question the status quo and are leaders rather than followers. We choose to do away with outdated and inadequate methods and focus our efforts on a very “new school,” science-based, integrative approach to healing and coaching.

Fully Accredited Education

CTNC the most comprehensive coaching certification available. The institute of Transformational Nutrition is partnered and accredited with the National Board of Health and Wellness Coaching (NBHWC), The National Association of Nutrition Professionals (NANP), and Carnegie Melon University.  The ciriculum at ITN goes much deeper than generic “Health Coach Schools” 

A real coach, not just a cheerleader.

CTNC’s provide educational resources and help guide you on your journey. We help you get to the root cause of issues you’re facing and make lasting changes.

We Walk The Walk

CTNCs receive their own coaching throughout their education and most continue on with he process thereafter. Many of us are on a personal journey of transformation. Some of us are further along the path than others. CTNCs fully embrace their own transformation, while learning to help others on their journey!

We work beyond food and dieting, and get RESULTS!

We combine physical health with modern-day concerns ranging from such as mental health, cultural factors, relationships, and how to overcome past trauma, just to name a few.
