Your Symptom: Fatigue and/or Foggy Brain
Could chronic fatigue, low energy levels, foggy brain, listlessness, and trouble concentrating be reversed or improved, just by changes in your diet? The answer is: Yes! Many of my clients come to me feeling sick and tired. Some of my clients are eating really well, on a high raw food, vegan or vegetarian diet and yet they still feel tired. On top of that they also feel frustrated, because after all, when you’re eating healthier than everyone else, it just doesn’t seem fair that you are the one with the least energy!
By the time you find me, you’ve probably tried every supplement and superfood on the market and you might even be convinced that you’re in permanent detox mode from all the years of “bad eating” before. People around you might be saying, “You just need to eat more protein” and that can make you feel worse and confuses the issue even further. You might also think that doing a water fast or a detox is the only way to clear your body and have high energy levels again (PS: it’s not true, although is some cases a form of detox may be necessary to help clear certain toxins). Even so, if you’re eating the wrong foods or taking the wrong supplements for you body after your detox, you will still feel tired so it’s not really a solution.
Whether you’re an entrepreneur, business executive, long-haul business traveler, busy parent, full-time student, scientist, doctor, airline pilot, teacher, professional athlete, engineer, musician, writer, lawyer or otherwise…you need energy in order to perform your best.

It’s your body’s natural state to feel high energy and happy. And when you get there, you know exactly what I mean! Waking up with a clear mind and natural energy to start the day is the best feeling ever.
Say “Yes” to: Raw apple cider vinegar, fresh turmeric, ginger, lemon, fennel, celery, cauliflower, cabbage, pears, watercress.
Reduce or avoid: White wheat, refined sugar, fried food, artificial coffee creamer, instant noodle soup (flavor packets very bad!), potato chips, artificially colored candy, protein powder, airplane food, chewing gum.
I’ve experienced my own ups and downs with feeling exhausted some days and then having bursts of energy on other days or feeling wiped out from foggy brain. I also know the frustration of trying to crack the code. Luckily, I’ve done the work for you on this one. After years of doing this stuff, I now know how to decipher the maze and get you to the other side as fast as possible. I figured out which foods cause people to crash and burn, and yes…they can even be “so-called healthy” foods. What I’ve also learned is that there is no “one size fits all” because everyone is eating all kinds of combinations of foods, superfoods, supplements and there can still be deficiency or toxicity present.
10 Foods that can DECREASE Energy Levels and cause Brain Fog
Flavor enhancers such as Monosodium Glutamate (including yeast extract)
Preservatives such as Sodium Benzoate (E211)
Foods high in Salicylates (especially dried fruit and in children)
Fillers in supplements (including malodextrin, rice extract)
Non-caking agents in salt (E535)
When you look at that list above, how would you ever know where to start? Not to worry, this is what I do! I’ve worked with all kinds of people including professional athletes, race car drivers, airline pilots, fashion designers, entrepreneurs and business executives who are often traveling around the globe and running their bodies to the limit. I’ve had clients who experienced extreme emotional trauma and simply fried out their adrenals from the stress. I’ve coached many other health coaches because my level of expertise goes way beyond food combining or how much carbs, fats and proteins the body needs. I’m checking everything from hormones to absorption levels to heavy metal toxicity to liver function. I work with meat eaters as well as raw foodies. People come to me when they want real answers and real solutions and they don’t want to waste any more time getting it.
I can put all of the pieces of your “health puzzle” together. I will have you checking ingredients of certain foods or supplements and telling you: keep that, ditch that, replace this with that, and so on. My instructions are extremely precise and clear and I explain the reasoning for every change so you understand and learn what to look out for in the future. Some of my clients have reported feeling high energy levels consistently again after just 4-5 days from our first session.
Remember the “Food Rules” by Michael Pollan
1. Stay out of the middle of the supermarket; shop on the perimeter.
2. It’s not food if it’s called by the same name in every language.
3. Don’t eat anything your great grandmother wouldn’t recognize as food.
4. Avoid foods that contain ingredients a third-grader can’t pronounce.
5. Treat meat as a flavoring or special occasion food (if you eat it).
(from the book Food Rules by Michael Pollan)
