NEW CANAAN, Conn. – Certified health coach and nutrition expert Dawn Kurth, of New Canaan, officially launched No Kidding Nutrition last month amid rising rates of chronic disease in the United States.
Kurth helps busy women and teenage girls upgrade their diets and improve their lives through private and group counseling, innovative workshops and programs for schools. She empowers her clients with the knowledge to eat better and create fast, easy and nutritious meals that taste good and are family-friendly. Her approach emphasizes food as only one part of health and wellness.
“While the statistics about rising rates of diabetes and obesity continue to make headlines, there isn’t enough being done to educate people about the dangers of the typical Standard American Diet and lifestyles filled with enormous amounts of stress,” said Kurth. “While education is one part of the solution, helping busy women to make healthy eating easier is also essential. Working with teenage girls provides an opportunity for me to impact a generation that I feel is most at risk for developing chronic disease later in life. This generation has grown up on an unprecedented level of processed foods and needs the most help.”
No Kidding Nutrition includes personal health coaching programs, including one-time sessions as well as “mini” and full-service health coaching.
Classes and workshops are also available. Designed to be engaging and interactive, participants will learn practical, common sense strategies that focus on incorporating real, whole foods, creating a positive mindset and optimizing time. Each class or workshop will vary slightly.
Recent and upcoming classes for teens include:
- “Teen Tactics for Healthy Eating”
- “Better Breakfast and Super Snacks”
- “Ho Ho Healthy Holiday Treats”
Recent and upcoming classes for women are:
- “Seduced by Sugar”
- “Eating for Energy”
- “Move Over Mac and Cheese” – to help moms plan for more balanced and healthy family eating
“Dawn Kurth is an excellent coach who takes the time to understand your objectives and health concerns and creatively develops a plan to help you incrementally change your lifestyle,” said client Lorre Jay, of New Canaan. “As a result after about six weeks, I have more energy and fewer negative food side effects. I lost weight, noticed my hair and skin improved, and most importantly, I feel great. I sleep better and suffer less stress.”
