About René Miller
Before I started my education in nutrition and health coaching, I was tired and sluggish. Like so many women my age, I craved carbohydrates and particularly sugar. Sweets after meals was the norm! When I felt that late afternoon slump creep on, I’d turn to coffee and carbs. It boosted me for a little while and then the inevitable sugar crash hit and I felt worse than before. Something had to change.
In 2008, I was diagnosed with Celiac disease, which meant a lifelong elimination of wheat, barley, and rye (all of which contain gluten) from my diet. And what a shock that was! Suddenly I had to reevaluate everything I ate or drank. It’s a 24/7 job. The diagnosis made me acutely aware of what I was putting into my body, and from it sprang a desire to learn more about health and nutrition, and how everything we eat impacts our health. So I went back to school! I have a B.S. in Clinical Laboratory Science, a M.S. in Human Nutrition & Functional Medicine, am a Certified Wellcoach®, and regularly participate in continuing education.
Today I am so much healthier and happier. I eat a pretty clean whole foods diet, I move my body regularly, and I use meditation and relaxation techniques to help me reduce stress, stay centered, and sleep well. I still drink my morning coffee and incorporate some treats into my diet, because life is not about deprivation. You will find that I am not judgmental, because I’m certainly not perfect and I don’t expect perfection in others. We are all at different points on the path to wellness. Let’s have fun and enjoy the journey to your sunniest life.
