With the astronomical increase in attention given toward keto dieting and nutrition over the recent years, numerous health coaches have emerged to provide ketogenic diet plans, promising to facilitate improvements in health through their programs. But the problem is that instead of client-centric and customized services, the market has been saturated with cookie-cutter keto diets that fail to consider individual differences. This is why Keto Nutritionist Kristina Hess stands against blindly prescribing the same standard diet to her clients.
As a premier health coach and licensed nutritionist and dietician, Kristina Hess guides people in making lifestyle changes that result in real and lasting boosts in well-being. She has a Master’s Degree in Clinical Nutrition and Integrative Health from Maryland University for Integrative Health and proves to be an expert in the field with her multiple certifications in several areas, from Mindful Eating and Heartmath to Ericksonian Hypnosis and sports nutrition. Known for her integrative and functional approach to coaching, this certified health advisor follows the Functional Medicine model of IFM, which views people as inherently different from each other in genetics and biochemical compositions.
Kristina Hess, who has become the leader in providing solutions to the most stubborn weight loss cases in Fairfield County, was once intimate with the pressing urgency for a diet program. After working for two years as the Nutrition Director of a vegan food company, she found herself fifteen pounds heavier and on the verge of pre-diabetes. Unbeknownst to her, Kristina’s seemingly healthy diet was extremely high in carbohydrates. In addition, the sugar content in her smoothies, vegan treats, and grain bowls did not help her situation.
Professor Thomas Seyfried’s talk about the advantages of the ketogenic diet in treating cancer pushed her to try keto to fix her metabolic issues. And two years into incorporating it in her lifestyle, Kristina Hess has not only harvested the benefits of this type of diet but has also become a source of wisdom and guidance for people struggling with their health.
Kristina Hess takes pride in the evidence-driven and holistic perspective she operates by as she helps clients hit their wellness objectives. This Keto authority runs nutrigenomics testing to determine the type of low carb plan that would address her clients’ needs. Examining each individual’s biochemical blueprint allows her to know whether a person needs more protein, more plants, whether someone should eat or avoid dairy, which compounds upregulate or downregulate genes, and more.
The meticulous and rigorous process Kristina Hess is known for in crafting solutions for her clients’ struggles has set her apart from the rest of the coaches in the keto space. She is also recognized for her comprehensive wellness services, including an exclusive one-on-one accountability program called “Type II Diabetes Reversal,” where she takes clients on a week-long retreat to Florida. Moreover, through the Keto Lovers Inner Circle, Kristina Hess facilitates individual, and group coaching sessions intended to guide clients as they transition to a ketogenic lifestyle.
Kristina Hess stands out even further with the launching of the Keto Symposium, which is set to become the first-ever keto conference in the NYC Tri-state area. This conference, open to keto lovers and keto-curious this coming September 25, 2021, will raise awareness about the ketogenic diet and serve as a platform for attendees to express their commitment to pursuing healthy living.
