The Most Important Thing I Learned from My First Month at Nutrition School

Have you ever gone into an experience expecting it to be a certain way? But once you got there it turned about to be different than what you anticipated?

That’s how my first month with the Institute of Integrated Nutrition went.

I enrolled in IIN® to further my education so that in turn, I could help others.

Enrolling in the Institute for Integrated Nutrition

Eleven years ago I began my journey of a healthier, fitter lifestyle. I started working out with a trainer and changed my dietary habits. Before I knew it, I exceeded my own goals and expectations of what I could achieve. Not only in the amount of weight that I lost, but also in the realization that I was capable of so much more than I ever imagined.

Low FODMAPS, Week 1

About a year and a half ago I was diagnosed with IBS and Adrenal Fatigue, and have been trying to find the best way to recover from it. I opted to focus on holistic care vs pumping drugs into my body. My doctors (PCP and holistic) conducted tests that indicated that my body did not process soy, dairy, wheat and corn. These foods contributed to my symptoms. So I eliminated those foods. In fact I eliminated grains all together and followed a mostly Paleo diet.
