But how do clients love thee? Let us count the ways #humblebrags…
Here’s why working with an Essence dietitian will change your life!
• Essence RDs have PERSONALITY. This is Miami, after all. We have that SPICE. We aren’t boring white coat types. We are as bubbly as champagne. We’ll get you as excited about food as we are!
• We are anything but being preachy/judgy; we are TOTALLY relatable! We want to take the pressure off you and offer kindness, not harshness. Especially when you “confess” food mess-ups to us (spoiler alert: those don’t exist!)
• We don’t set time limits like, YOU MUST LOSE WEIGHT BY OCTOBER 3rd. We tell people that this #essencebutterfly experience is a process/journey and that you have your whole life to make your health better, yes but we have to set a PACE now, not a RIGID SCHEDULE
• We train you how to eat MINDFULLY and INTUITIVELY; so you can enjoy and love food; not vilify it
• We allowing people to have FAT in their diets! So many people grew up with ‘fat-free’ everything; we seek to free you from that big FAT lie
• We often allow for a ‘celebration meal’ (NOT A CHEAT MEAL!!!WE HATE THAT WORD!!!) where they can indulge in their most favoritest meal (not a word, but we dig it), at a pace set by the CLIENT, not US!
• We keeping you accountable and motivated with easy peasy 30 minute virtual sessions; even while you commute to/from work (so much more exciting than NPR!)
• We are one of the only practices to offer GENETIC TESTING and ANTIOXIDANT TESTING!
• We actually steer you AWAY from expensive supplements; you better PROVE you need them and that you’re willing to make a lifestyle change before we shower you with pills!
• Our concierge 24/7 service; this is an opt-in service with no counseling sessions needed! We offer the ability for clients to log meals in real time wherein we can comment.
• The ease and delight of working with us, in general. We respond to everything in laser time, we are extremely organized [some may say ‘pathologically’ so], and professional!
Ask any Essence client about their experience. You’ll see the proof is in the (sugar-free) pudding; working with Monica is like working with a relatable, fun, nutrition guru who gets you to where you want to be with your nutrition in a seamless way.
