We live in an unprecedented period, dealing with the Pandemic and all the related changes in our personal and professional life.

It’s time, now, to reconsider our approach to what we consider wellness, dieting, and, in general, living better.

Are you currently following a diet regime? Are you trying to lose weight, to improve your physical condition? I know that these can be hard times, if you choose the more traditional approaches, that only try to address one problem at a time, disregarding the fact that we are made by body, mind, and soul.

Today, too often eating “right” means getting stuck, and bored, with calories counting, macros, or scale readouts.

Also, it often sadly means feeling bad about not reaching your goals, thus leading you to frustration and, ultimately, to stop caring.

The idea behind holistic nutrition is that our health directly comes from the correct interaction between the physical and biological, chemical and energetic, mental and emotional, as well as spiritual and environmental aspects of our personal and professional life.

A holistic approach to wellness and eating means choosing to be healthy and happy. It means choosing a lifestyle that perfectly aligns with your body, mind, and soul.It means approaching your health and the way I can heal it from a whole-person perspective. This means also approaching each person who asks for my help as a unique individual with unique, specific needs.

This requires that we will need to build a fully engaging relationship during the healing process, so to discover and honor your most intimate nature and wisdom by working in an empowering manner to draw an engaging and committed journey to optimal health.

From the point of view of what you will eat, my healing help could mean introducing you to intermittent fasting, OMAD (One Meal A Day), or going vegetarian or vegan. It could be following your current diet and training regime improving it where it lacks what your mind and soul specifically need to grow and recover.

What is holistic eating?

  • You will learn to reject the permanent diet culture.
  • You will learn that food is a pleasure, not a guilt.
  • You will build full respect for all shapes and sizes and specifically your body, working on becoming the best version of yourself, from every point of view.

MMQG is a holistic practice, encompassing meditation, mindfulness, Qi Gong that I use as an integral part of my holistic coaching. MMQG also allows you to develop the correct eating and wellness habits.
