Metabolic Reset & Weight Loss Program
Julie Starkel Nutrition, LLC
Position: Part-time, contract-based Nutritionist/Program Assistant
The Metabolic Reset & Weight Loss Program is a supervised, ketosis-based weight loss program. We focus on blood sugar management, food allergy identification, and consistent support in order to ensure safe and effective weight loss in a caring environment. Our approach recognizes that each person has a different relationship with food, and that certain foods are more nourishing for our bodies than others. We also understand that meaningful weight loss takes time, and is the result of deep personal growth, and sustainable lifestyle changes. With this program, clients receive the support and tools they need in order to reach their healthy weight, and to trust their ability to maintain it for life.

A current client comes in for a weekly check-in appointment and tells you she’s had a really hard week. She tells you it was her son’s birthday party and she made cupcakes for the event. She ate one, and then for the rest of the weekend continued to eat poorly. She feels guilty, exhausted, and has gained 3 pounds.
