What is Functional Nutrition?
Functional nutrition is a practical and customizable approach to diet that is personalized to your individual needs. I help clients discover food and lifestyle practices that are non-restrictive and supportive of long-term health and wellness. With functional nutrition coaching, we explore personalized tools and plans to help you achieve your goals and feel your best.
My nutrition practice is rooted in functional medicine, which is an approach to healthcare that allows for exploration and support of underlying health imbalances to improve symptom presentation through food and lifestyle. Symptoms are the body's way of communicating so we need to listen closely in order to facilitate balance.
My areas of focus include:
Gut and Digestive Health
Hormone Balance and Menstrual Cycle Optimization
Sleep Optimization + Daytime Energy Support
Nutrition for Mental Health
Sports and Performance Nutrition
Binge Eating and Disordered Eating
Nutritional support for health conditions (cardiovascular, immune/autoimmune, etc.)
Nutrition for Musicians, Actors, and Entertainment Professionals
Meet Kelli, MS, CPT
Hey! I am a nutritionist and a personal trainer, obsessed with everything that the human body can do! When I'm not nerding out over food or fitness, I'm usually making music, playing with my cat, or I'm outside, enjoying the beach or a hike. I live in Los Angeles but I am grateful to serve clients all across America via telehealth.
I help artists, creatives, corporate 9 to 5-ers, athletes, and fitness enthusiasts to feel good in their own skin through nutrition, fitness, and lifestyle coaching. My passion is to provide support and useful resources to optimize health, longevity, performance, and wellbeing.
I have been meeting with Kelli weekly and then biweekly for nutritional support. Kelli’s intake process was thorough and I really felt like she saw me as a whole person. Kelli has helped me evaluate my current habits and help me seamlessly create new ones. I have been vegan for nearly 4 years and Kelli helped me adjust my supplements to make sure I was getting everything my body needed and encouraged new exciting and delicious recipes! We have also been working on balancing my hormones through my food choices and supplements. She has been kind and compassionate, fun and energetic about helping me remember the joy of cooking and nourishing my body well!
