AgainstThe Grain Nutrition

Scheduling a Personal Nutrition Consultation
Or Coaching Session

Interested in a nutrition consultation or nutrition coaching services? Here's a personal message from Melissa:

I am a Tucson, Arizona-based nutritionist who counsels and nutritionally coaches clients throughout the United States and Canada long distance over the phone. I develop personalized nutrition programs for people with a wide range of different health conditions. However, I specialize in offering advice for the prevention and reversal of the following conditions:

  • Overweight, insulin resistance, and Syndrome X or Metabolic Syndrome (extra weight around the middle, high blood pressure, unhealthy cholesterol ratios, high triglycerides)
  • Prediabetes and early-stage type 2 diabetes (higher than average blood sugar levels)
  • Gluten sensitivity/gluten intolerance, celiac disease, wheat allergy and other grain allergies
  • Unexplained infertility
  • Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS in women, characterized by infrequent or absent periods, obesity, elevated levels of androgens, excess body and facial hair, acne, male-pattern hair loss, skin tags and infertility)
  • Chronic fatigue and chronic fatigue syndrome
  • Food allergies, food cravings and food addictions (including for members of Overeaters Anonymous, Food Addicts Anonymous, and Food Addicts in Recovery Anonymous)
  • A wide variety of digestive disorders

I also help counsel people on how to avoid genetically modified foods (also known as genetically modified organisms or GMOs) to protect health.

If you’re looking for a nutrition counselor or nutrition coach to help you eat gluten free, grain free, sugar free, low carb, or non-GMO — or if you are trying to find a nutrition consultant to help you cut junky processed foods out of your diet so you can easily lose weight — you’ve come to the right place.

If you aren’t sure how to change your diet to help you overcome health problems and become healthier, or if you have a health concern other than those described in the bullets above, and drop me a few lines about why you're looking for a nutrition counselor. If I think I can help, I'll tell you. If I think you'll be better served by consulting with another health professional, I'll try to point you in the right direction of where to look next.

I don't believe in a blanket nutrition prescription for everyone: I always individualize my advice, based on your individual symptoms, lifestyle habits, medical history, and health goals. My counseling services involve nutrition education, practical support (meal suggestions and supermarket savvy and restaurant savvy education), and supplement recommendations. Coaching programs cover these areas in much more depth.

Nutrition services can be paid with credit cards through PayPal or with a personal check (or cashier's check made out in U.S. dollars if out of the country) mailed to me. Long-distance clients also pay for the phone call to me for our consultation or coaching session. Clients benefit most from regular sessions with me, so I recommend one of my coaching programs – or the Get Started and Wellness Plan counseling services, which are offered at significant discounts.

If you are interested in a phone consultation or coaching program with me, please and write a few lines about yourself and your condition. I'll email you detailed client analysis forms that need to be filled out and sent to me before the consultation can take place. (If you would prefer to have the forms sent through the mail to you, you can email me your name, address and phone number, but the process takes longer this way.) The 7-Day Food Diary form takes a week to fill out. After you complete all the forms, mail them back to me with a check for the nutrition service you’re purchasing or click the link to pay with your credit card through PayPal and then email me to set up a time for the appointment.

If you would like to have a nutrition consultation or start a nutrition coaching program with me, start the process by . I look forward to hearing from you.
