After talking with two Gastroenterologists and being told I will be on medicine and steroids my entire life to just maintain, I knew there was a better way.
What prompted you to make a change?
The disease kicked me down right when I was starting to get into weightlifting and the gym. I had adjusted my nutrition on my own to be more natural and holistic. I was following the health trends and eating the way you are “supposed” to eat - or at least I thought.
After some research and unintentionally losing 35 lbs, I discovered all of my symptoms could be caused by gut permeability. I had tried a few diets on my own, but through my ignorance and lack of experience, I was never able to get anywhere. After talking with Britney from OnPoint, she assured me she had the nutritionist to help and I was set with Zoe.
How has your life and health changed since working with OnPoint Nutrition?
Changing my taste buds to be able to eat and enjoy more fruits and vegetables the way they're supposed to be enjoyed is something I'm most proud of. I had hated strawberries growing up because they were “bland”. Cleaning up my sweets make berries a perfect topping!
