I’m Sandy Dalis, Board-Certified Holistic Health, Nutrition and Life Coach, and founder of Crave Nutrition.
After working for many years in the fast food industry – which promotes addictions to unhealthy food – I was inspired to become a health coach to share my passion for nutrition and wellness.
I specialize in helping women conquer cravings and overcome emotional eating.I am here to SUPPORT YOU. When you understand the connection between what you eat, why you eat, and how you feel, you will be in control of your food, instead of your food being in control of you, and on your way to enjoying a happier, healthier, more energetic life!
Sandy Dalis, CHHC, AADP Certified Holistic Health & Nutrition Coach
I practice a holistic approach to health and wellness, which means that I look at how all areas of your life are connected. Does stress at your job or in your relationship cause you to overeat? Does lack of sleep or low energy prevent you from exercising? Do the foods you eat cause cravings and symptoms? As we work together, we will look at how all parts of your life affect your health as a whole.
My approach is not to dwell on counting calories. All calories are not created equal, and counting them can create a bad relationship between you and your food and lead to unhealthy choices.
It can’t be about deprivation … counting … judging … criticizing.
It’s about TAKING CARE OF YOU!
Together we’ll work to reach your health goals in areas such as achieving optimal weight, reducing food cravings, increasing sleep, and maximizing energy. As we work together, you’ll develop a deeper understanding of the food and lifestyle choices that work best for you and implement lasting changes that will improve your energy, balance and health.
I received my training as a Health Coach from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition (IIN), the nation’s leading Health Coach Training Program. During my training, I studied more than 100 dietary theories, practical lifestyle management techniques, and innovative coaching methods with some of the world’s top health and wellness experts. My teachers included Dr. Andrew Weil, Director of the Arizona Center for Integrative Medicine; Dr. Deepak Chopra, leader in the field of mind-body medicine; Dr. David Katz, Director of Yale University’s Prevention Research Center; Dr. Walter Willett, Chair of Nutrition at Harvard University; Geneen Roth, bestselling author and expert on emotional eating; and many other leading researchers and nutrition authorities.
My education has equipped me with extensive knowledge in holistic nutrition, health coaching, and preventive health. Drawing on these skills and my knowledge of different dietary theories, I work with clients to help them make lifestyle changes that produce real and lasting results. I am passionate about health and helping clients live their best lives!
