About Smart Nutrition


Smart Nutrition offers cutting edge nutrition programs to both groups and individuals. Our specialty is working with mid-life women who want to improve their energy and vitality to look and feel 10 years younger.

We offer state of the art weight management programs for men and women that lead to long term weight maintenance. We also provide customized programs to reduce risk for heart disease, cancer and diabetes as well as programs designed to improve gut health and function.

Each person is unique requiring different approaches to help create positive changes. Smart Nutrition can help you discover and correct the eating patterns that may be leading to low energy, weight gain, ill health, dependence on too many medications, poor digestion, high cholesterol, mood issues and more.

Most of us have a fairly good idea of what we should be eating on a regular basis. But knowledge is often not enough to make the changes that are required to help move toward better health.  In order to promote permanent change; emotions, behavior change and the mind-body connection need to be considered.

We practice from a holistic perspective which means that we look at all aspects of a person’s needs including psychological, physical and social as they relate to your nutrition and lifestyle. A busy single mom has different eating and lifestyle challenges than a business person who travels extensively. To create long term change we believe all of these facets need to be taken into account and seen as a whole to work with individuals to create a lifestyle/nutrition plan.

We offer online and phone counseling for individuals who lead a busy lifestyle. We also offer in person one on one attention for clients in Southern New Hampshire with offices in Amherst and Peterborough.
