Frequently Asked Questions

Why should I work with Wellness Methods

Because I am nice ???? Seriously? Because I hold your hand, am your best cheerleader, motivator, accountability partner and I kick your a$%. I also teach you what 20% efforts you can do that account for 80% of the results. And you will get healthy replacements that taste good and are fast and cheap to prepare, not recommendations that are tasteless, take forever to cook, or cost a fortune.
And more seriously, I am an expert at what I do. I have worked with plenty of clients and my education as a transformational nutrition expert makes me one of the nutrition professionals who are at the forefront of nutrition health professionals.
One of my clients said this:  
Andrea has radiant positivity that is just infectious. I’m not your health-obsessed diet whatever person, which Andrea understood and took into account in her plan. What I 
also appreciated was the fact that we worked through the issues together. I am now living a healthier lifestyle one small change at a time and motivated to get even better at 
this with Andrea’s helpful coaching. Thanks!

I have tried everything, every diet, or seen plenty of doctors. Why would this help me?

I start where others have given up. I use a holistic approach combined with functional nutrition that I trained in too. This allows me to dig deeper, look at the complete picture of your physical, emotional health, and personal history.
I look at the root cause and do not only provide a band-aid Solution. I meet you where you are and help you to form goals that YOU can achieve. I also have the education to look at how the different systems are related and, for example, how  by repairing your gut a completely (seemingly) unrelated hormonal issue will improve drastically. 

How long before I see results?

It will depend on your progress. Some clients can already see results in as early as 2-3 weeks. The more committed you are, the faster. Remember we are all different and are on a journey. Only when the root cause of your issues is repaired, will you see results.

I've tried other diets before. Will this work for me?

Definitely! Our program is different than a diet. It is a holistic and personalized approach based on my 5 step Food Freedom Formula, including on-on-one coaching, accountability, habits implementation, meal planning, mindset work and addressing the root cause of your weight or health issues. Provided you follow our program 100% and are committed, you can lose 20-50 pounds in 6 months. The secret lies in the combination of different approaches and personalization.

What is the difference between the Group Coaching and One on One (1:1) Coaching?

Group coaching is in a little group which is amazing if you like to share and be motivated by each other. There is always a great support and group dynamic. We have a private FB group where you can ask questions and get additional support. During our coaching calls, I usually share and empower you with knowledge helping you all to achieve your health goals faster, I answer your questions and you can share your experience with each other. Usually, everybody has similar issues so we learn from each other immensely. We celebrate wins and we hold each other accountable.

1:1 coaching allows a more personalized approach. We work specifically on your goals and personal health issues. We go deeper into your emotional being and you get a personalized plan adapted to your specific issues. 1:1 coaching will allow you to reach your goals faster and is also recommended if you have more specific health needs such as chronic health conditions or if you need a highly flexible program or schedule if you are traveling.

Does my insurance pay for nutrition coaching?

Most insurances in the USA do not pay for nutrition coaching. Some may, depending on which state you live in. See it as an investment. You will gain so much more than you spend.

I can't afford it now, is there any way you can help me?

I want to ask you how important is your health and what may happen if you do not look after it now? This is an investment in your life. If you do not look after your health, will you be able to work and earn money? Will you be able to look after your family and go on with your daily work or other activities? If you struggle but are really serious about making changes and really want to invest in your health, please do ask me and we will find a way. I can offer you a payment plan, recommend other products or I can give you some ideas on how you may be able to afford it. I was at a stage where I had no income and I signed up for a course costing 4000$, and later on for other courses that cost around 2000$. It was an investment and I believed that it brings me to where I am today. And it did!

Coaching is too expensive. Is it really worth it?

Do you rather want to pay now for health or later for illness-related costs? I believe investing in your health and wellbeing has no price but having said this, working with me, will help you to gain so much in time, health and money. Just look at your annual health expenses from doctors, self payments, medication, and over-the-counter costs, etc… All the knowledge I have gained during my education is condensed and packaged into bite sizes and helps you to improve your health and wellbeing so much faster and better. Also remember, you do not pay only for the time I am with you. I spend several hours of pre-and post-session preparing simple tips and done-for-you plans, researching cutting-edge information related to your health issues, emails, meal plans, etc. You get so much more value!

What is Transformational Nutrition coaching?

I believe it is the only method that really works. I am trained to incorporate the science of nutrition, psychology, spirituality and coaching in my practice and I use all of them to help you to really powerful transformations on all levels, resulting in physical, emotional and mental wellbeing. I look more at the root cause and how everything is related to each other. This truly achieves permanent results.

I have no time for this, I work too much and travel all the time. I don't have the time for or like cooking. Would this be for me?

I specifically specialize in helping people who are busy and have no time. The hacks I find can be adapted to your schedule or lifestyle. When you learn how easy and less time-consuming it is to cook, you will gain time. I have plenty of cooking tips that take you less time than to go to a restaurant, ordering fast food, or order a delivery. If you travel all the time, we find ways to incorporate a healthy diet and lifestyle into your schedule.

Believe me, I speak out of the experience, I love finding hacks and work on optimizing my time all the time and achieving high performance with the minimum effort.

What is the outcome if I sign up to a coaching program?

The outcome depends on you. Coaching is a beautiful and powerful process where you are in charge. 

That’s why it works so well to achieve long term goals as you decide on them knowing WHY and only then you will achieve them. 

We all are different and I had clients who were able to discontinue her chronic medication for diabetes and high cholesterol after working with me for 3 weeks. All my clients lost weight, some more, some less. But what is always an outcome is that you improve your health and wellbeing and are able to implement and maintain healthy habits that are adapted to YOUR life (work, schedule, situations). It is all about continuous improvements!

I have no willpower to stop eating. Why should I sign up?

You are one of my preferred clients. Not having willpower is fake news. Cravings are mostly due to a physiological imbalance. By repairing your gut and diminishing bad bacteria, and helping with the right nutrients, some of the hormones responsible for your hunger and craving regulation will balance out and your cravings will diminish. And then I always work with my clients on their big WHY. And once you have found YOUR BIG WHY, it is much simpler to establish better habits. And this is another part, by establishing little habits, it is no longer a thing of motivation or willpower, it becomes automatic. Like brushing your teeth every day.

What happens in a coaching session?

During the first session, we do an in-depth investigation of your health and personal history including underlying root causes. We establish together with your goals and motivation. Then, we develop together a personalized plan adapted to your needs and situation around healthy eating, lifestyle, mindfulness, emotions, and spirituality.  
During each consecutive session, we work step by step towards your goals. It is all about finding the easiest changes that produce the best results. During transformational coaching, I motivate youprovide guidance to implement simple healthy habits, hold you accountable, and always choose what you are ready to do. The combination is very powerful and helps to achieve long-term results. You will improve the most pressing health concerns first and then we continue unpeeling each layer until long-term health can be achieved.  
BONUS: Additionally you get lots of health tips, worksheets, done for your protocols and email support in-between the sessions 

How many sessions are there in the program?

That depends on you, your compliance, and your issues. Some of my clients work only 6 weeks with me (minimum time), some others have more complicated issues or a lot of weight to lose which takes longer. Some of my clients follow recommendations easily, some need a lot of help with emotional eating or other underlying issues. It all depends on where you are at, that is why I offer personalized coaching. 
I usually review after 6 weeks with my clients and then we decide on the way forward. Sometimes they continue or we may continue less frequently or some just call me from time to time when need be or they continue with one of my other programs.
