One of the most important things you can do for your health is to eat healthy. But what does that really mean? Eat more vegetables and don’t eat any junk food? Or is it something more personalized - what your body needs, exactly.

The path to weight loss and health isn’t always quite so simple. But I make it much easier to understand.

Weight Loss Coach: Traci D Mitchell

Weight Loss Coach Traci D Mitchell

My name is Traci D Mitchell. I’m an author, nutrition expert and weight loss coach. I wrote the book, The Belly Burn Plan, to help people lose weight through balancing hormones and managing inflammation

My private practice is 100% devoted to helping people through weight loss coaching one-on-one. I work with people from all over the world helping them feel and look great. 

No two clients are alike. Everyone has a different story. They’re men and women, all different ages, from all walks of life. Some are in perfect health but want to lose some weight, while others have different health concerns and want to focus in on the foods they eat to improve how they feel. 

The bottom line is: if simply eating healthier was the fast track to losing weight, everyone reading this would be fitting into their favorite pair of jeans while walking around feeling confident and in control. 

Unfortunately, obesity and disease are on the rise. 

Information on fad diets and diet foods have blurred what it really means to eat healthy. It’s not necessarily about eating low fat, or avoiding carbs or eating high fat. 

Your body is unique, and the foods you should eat should not be the product of some cookie-cutter diet. 

A few ways I can help you with weight loss coaching or just feeling better:

  • Read through my articles on this blog. There is a wealth of information that can help you get started. 
  • Pick up The Belly Burn Plan to understand how the foods you should be eating might be completely different from what you’ve always thought. 
  • Work with me one-on-one. I work with clients via video chat or phone. You can start by filling out this interest form. 

I want you to be at you best. Start today!
