Great Nutrition for Everyone!

From the general public to the star athlete

Her diversity of clients includes those dealing with weight management, gastrointestinal distress, heart disease, blood pressure issues, eating disorders, diabetes, general health concerns, as well as active adults and star athletes seeking to enhance their performance.

Her unique “paired” food approach

“I named my business Nutrition Synergy because I like to think of how we can pack more power and nutrition into meals by combining foods together versus looking at one food in isolation,” she explains. “I work to pair foods together, finding complementary nutrients, to create the healthiest plate possible. We don’t eat one food at a time, we eat combination meals, and we don’t eat nutrients, we eat real food.

Jocelyn also believes eating and sharing meals should be enjoyable, not stressful. She works with her clients to help create balanced meals that offer variety and flexibility.

“Healthy eating does not have to be rigid, there is no perfect diet” she explains, “In fact, by varying food choices we eat a better balance of nutrients”. Jocelyn works to meet clients where they are and focuses on small and sustainable changes to their eating pattern, “Clients leave my office with tools and suggestions to create a flexible and varied nutrition plan that supports their health and lifestyle needs, one step at a time.”

Her “paired” professional expertise

“My background in exercise and sports science and experience consulting with professional and collegiate athletes sets me apart because I understand how movement affects nutritional needs and how food and fluids can help or hurt performance,” Jocelyn shares. “I also played lacrosse at the Division 1 level, while studying exercise science as a student-athlete. This helped me understand the high demands of athletes, the limited time available, and how nutrition can play a key role in performance. Having a Master of Science in Nutrition gave me further training to help refine these recommendations and look to the ever-changing research for nutrition solutions for active individuals.”

Unique niche in sports nutrition

Active adults and athletes have more specific nutritional needs than the general public. Jocelyn helps them work through the challenges, with a few tips for success:

• Athletes must eat often.
• Athletes need to be prepared and plan ahead.
• Athletes must prioritize hydration before, during, and after sports.
• Athletes need to eat a more balanced plate to meet the demands of high physical activity.

“When clients can put the pieces together and feel the impact on their day–to-day performance and their health by fueling their body properly, it can be life-changing” Jocelyn states.

Diets don’t work

“I teach my clients how to fuel themselves for optimal health instead of learning how to lose the quick weight, which repeats an unsuccessful cycle”

She created Nutrition Synergy to help clients experience less stress around eating using scientifically proven data that gives them options, as there is not one perfect way to eat!

“I want people to live their longest, healthiest and happiest lives possible and food plays such an integral role in that.” she says.
