  • Please allow 90 minutes for the consultation itself.
  • For the Metabolic Test and the Blood glucose test , it is preferred that have not eaten for at least  2 hours. However, if this is not the case, just let us know so that we can make a note and record your results accordingly.
  • We will have snacks and drinks, so do not worry about getting hungry.

For more details on each of the tests described below, please click here.


First, we will conduct a 10 minute Basal Metabolic Rate Test. While you are doing this test, we will go over your questionnaire.

Then we move on to the  Blood Glucose Test. We promise this test is painless!

The Ultrasound Body Composition test will tell us your starting point.  This is the state of the art way to measure body fat.  It is accurate and consistent and not prone to variables due to time of day, hydration etc

Once the results are in, we will give you a 35-minute presentation to educate you on the physiology behind body composition. We guarantee that you will experience at least a couple of “AH HA” moments in this fun and illuminating presentation. The most common thing we hear is, “Why don’t we get taught this?” We wish we knew the answer. Oftentimes, parents bring their children back just to hear this presentation.

By this point, you will be pretty excited, so that will be the best time to do the painful work.

We will determine your weight, body fat, and measurements, then discuss the best way to design your nutrition plan. We want to know about your schedule, your obligations, your preferences and generally what makes you tick.  Nutrition should fit into your life; you should not have to make your life fit into nutrition.


Your meal plan will be designed and you will have the option of using our customized online program

The Initial consultation free will give you  email/text access to Joanne for the first 3 weeks.  Questions come up and adjustments can be made.  You can call on Joanne as much as you wish for the first 3 weeks.  Because you are just starting out we strongly suggest grabbing hold of the momentum and booking your next consultation within that 3 week window

Each appointment you book will give you access by email or text for 3 weeks.  If you come in more frequently the support time will roll over so it is never lost
