Eat Right, Look Great, Feel Awesome 2017! 12 week online program.

t’s back!

This is my longest running, most popular program and I’m opening it again RIGHT NOW!

If we haven’t already met and you haven’t had a chance to fully explore my website you may not know that I like to work with women who are pregnant or trying to achieve pregnancy.  But, about once a year or so, I open registration for this program which focuses on weight loss, getting into shape and maintaining a holistic diet.  Basically, eating right, looking great and feeling awesome.  🙂  I want to stress that last part.  Feeling awesome!  This is really the ultimate goal.  Because in the big picture, what you look like on the outside shouldn’t be the focus of any health and wellness plan (although it often is).  What we should get excited about is the way we feel!  It’s about having more energy and feeling happy!  It’s about living pain free!  It’s about taking care of ourselves and our bodies.  It’s about nurturing our minds and our souls.  Trust me, this is the important stuff.  And this is what my program is all about.  (Sometimes though, members lose weight too….)

 

SORRY, REGISTRATION IS NOW CLOSED.  Send an email to karen@natureprenatal.com to be placed on the waiting list for the next session. 

I have made a few changes to the program this year.  The biggest change is that I have 3 options available.  The first one is free!

In order to maintain quality support and individual attention, I have set a limit of 20 members in the program this year.  This includes 10 free spots (Option #1), 6 spots in Option #2 and only 4 spots in Option #3.

Here are just a few kind words from former members of the program:

I lost a total of 11 pounds since completing Karen’s online weight loss challenge and still losing! I followed all the weekly rules and was able to incorporate them very easily into our routines. Yes – I cheated and treated too lol! In the end I have not only lost weight but cut my grocery costs down by $150 for this month! Meal planning was a big part of the cost cutting for sure. It’s amazing how one month can change your mindset and make you realize that what we put in our bodies affect how we feel overall. I truly think that changes to my diet have helped me with my pain management too. Thank you!

Penny, Ottawa, ON

I lost 11 pounds and am honestly amazed! I was already in good shape. I just needed that last 10 pounds and with Karen’s help I achieved that and will surpass my goal. This morning I am 1 pound away from my ideal goal weight. Thank you so much Karen for providing me with the push and support that I needed.

Aundrea, Winnipeg, MB

I started Karen’s weight loss challenge in January hoping for the best but a little weary that I would not know how to introduce new, organic foods into my diet. Karen assured me that she would help me in every way possible. She provided me with not only recipes and advice, but with a new way of looking at food. Now I know what to look for on labels and how to cook quinoa (which I had never had before I met Karen). I took her Nutrition Assessment and found that I needed to go on a Candida diet to flush my system of toxins. I must say, I have never felt more energetic and healthy. In four months I have lost a total of 18 pounds and I am training to run a 5k in the fall. Life is good! Thank you Karen for getting me started on my new healthy body!

90 Day Online Preconception Program

“How to Make a Baby in 90 Days!”

Baby Boy

UPDATE:  THIS PROGRAM WILL BE OFFERED AGAIN IN FALL OF 2016.  Register now or sign up for my email list HERE to be notified when it starts.

Register Today button

START DATE:  July 10, 2016  July 17, 2016.

7 years ago I was trying to get pregnant.  I will never forget that summer.  I drank non-alcoholic beer at barbeque’s and charted my temperature every day.  Each month brought new hope that I would have that baby growing inside of me.  I could not wait to meet her!

Now, here I am and I am blessed with the most precious, beautiful and healthy daughter I could ever have imagined!  She brings me joy every single day.

I have no doubt that the foods I ate before and during pregnancy played a big part in her overall health today.   I know which foods will benefit a growing fetus, by providing it with all the necessary nutrients for growth and development.  And which foods can cause harm.  I have spent the last 3 years helping women achieve their own healthy pregnancies and happy babies.  Some came to me with fertility challenges such as irregular periods, hormonal imbalances, PCOS, thyroid imbalances and more.  Some women simply wanted to learn more about holistic nutrition and how they can provide the best possible environment for their unborn baby.  I have researched and learned all about prenatal holistic nutrition so that I could pass this information on to you now.

I can not recommend Karen’s prenatal services enough! She is knowledegable as well as kind and easy to talk to.

Karen helped me to learn how much food choices impact my overall health and relate to certain pregnancy symptoms. Our discussions inspired me to get back on track with healthy eating habits. I felt healthy and energized throughout my pregnancy and was happy knowing that I was making informed healthy choices for myself and my growing baby.

Every question I asked was responded to promptly with evidence based resources. I always felt confident in Karen’s recommendations and appreciated that they were realistic suggestions that I could work into my busy life.

I am grateful for Karen’s support throughout my pregnancy and I wouldn’t hesitate to use her services during any future pregnancies.

Melissa, Ontario

I used Karen’s services when I was trying to conceive, and she was able to give me many helpful tips to boost my fertility. Not too long after implementing some of the changes that she suggested, I was pregnant. In addition, Karen suggested dietary changes during pregnancy, and sent me some very helpful suggestions when I was struggling with low milk supply postpartum. I would definitely recommend Karen to any woman who wanted to make some holistic dietary changes while trying to conceive, while pregnant, and when breastfeeding.

Good Night Sleep Challenge

When was the last time you woke up feeling rested?  I mean, really rested.  So rested that you actually want to get out of bed and start your day.

My daughter has this energy first thing in the morning that is incredible.  She nearly jumps out of bed the moment she opens her eyes.  Always with a smile.  We should all feel that enthusiasm.  That excitement for life.  That energy.

The truth is, most of us do not get enough sleep.  According to this study, we average 6.1 sleeping hours each night.  A far cry from the the  recommended 7 to 9.  And we need those 7 to 9 hours sleep EVERY NIGHT.  Recent studies (source) suggest that a lack of sleep (less than 7 hours per night) may have wide-ranging effects on the cardiovascular, endocrine, immune, and nervous systems, including the following:

  • Obesity in adults and children
  • Diabetes and impaired glucose tolerance
  • Cardiovascular disease and hypertension
  • Anxiety symptoms
  • Depressed mood
  • Alcohol use

I have created this program because it became apparent to me that many women are not getting the quality sleep that they need for good health. This is a serious issue and I know we can do better!

 

Karen's Good Night Sleep Challenge Poster

Join my Good Night Sleep Challenge and feel rested every morning when you wake up!  I can’t guarantee that you will have the same energy as my daughter, but I promise you will have more energy than you have right now.  If you follow the program, I guarantee you will improve your overall health, including your immune system, your energy level and your mood!  Just to name a few.  You will be doing yourself a tremendous benefit not only physically, but mentally and emotionally too!  You have nothing to lose and everything to gain.  Stop making excuses for yourself and start taking care of YOU today.

Start sleeping better now.

WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT:

  • Simple, easy holistic diet and lifestyle recommendations to improve the quantity and quality of your sleep
  • Daily e-mails and online group support
  • Unlimited guidance and support for the duration of the program (21 days)

All for the low cost of $40.

We start March 23, 2015.

A FEW KIND WORDS:

Karen provided numerous resources in her sleep challenge program. Information was given and tips were sent which made them practical and easy to follow. I enjoyed learning from Karen.    Tasha.

I took Karen’s sleep challenge and found it made a difference in my life for a few reasons. It helped me live more consciously and do things differently since my awareness increased of the habits that were impeding my ability to sleep. Having an organized and methodical approach to changing behaviors that gradually changed my actions was far easier to implement than if I’d just done some research on my own and tried to change all these aspects at once. Having the opportunity to give and receive feedback and trouble shoot with someone who has a wholistic perspective as well as the other participants was super helpful and encouraging. Thanks Karen!    Rose-Ann.

When Karen offered her sleeping program, I was desperate to fall asleep, stay asleep and wake refreshed. It really helped that Karen broke down the research into small steps. I was too sleep deprived to take on too many changes at one time. As the process went on, Karen would check in and see how we were doing, often recapping points in helpful lists. The beauty of Karen’s suggestions is that they led me to think about our lifestyle as a family and how it might be working against us. I used what worked for me and our family (my husband and 5 year old son). And I am so grateful Karen led me to discoveries to help us with sleep and feeling rejuvenated. Thank you again.  Carla-Ann.

Deal of the Month!

OCTOBER 2014 DEAL OF THE MONTH!

SIGN UP FOR  MY ONLINE FORUM AND RECEIVE A FREE MINI-ASSESSMENT!

computerHave you ever googled health or nutrition information only to be overwhelmed by an onslaught of confusing and contradicting information?  Everyone has an opinion and sometimes it seems like everyone wants to share it, not always with the best of intentions.  Sometimes people mean well, but they simply don’t know.  They’ve been misinformed, or something worked for them and they want to share their personal experience.  The problem with that is we are not all created equal.  Every one of us is biochemically unique and will have different needs.  There is no one-size-fits-all approach to pregnancy or nutrition.  When I work with a client, I take the time needed to get to know her and base my recommendations on her specific needs.  In my online forum, I answer all questions relating to health and prenatal nutrition based on my own knowledge of holistic nutrition and ongoing personal research.

REGISTER HERE.

LIMITED TIME OFFER!  Sign up now, during the month of October, 2014 and receive a FREE mini-assessment ($40 value) or $40 credit towards any other service or program.
