Do you want to reach a healthy weight, balance your blood sugar, or improve your heart health? Are you tired of chronic pain, fatigue, mental "fog", headaches, digestive issues, and chronic skin conditions?
The Food of Life Philosophy
Food of Life Nutrition Services is founded on the belief that God created in nature all that we need to support healthy function in our bodies, and that Biblical principles of stewardship over the bodies we've been given are essential for achieving and maintaining health.
I address genetic and environmental factors that shape how our bodies function. My tools are God's natural order, evidence-based Integrative and Functional Nutrition, and whole food resources to help you achieve whole body balance. This includes changes in eating habits to manage diabetes & cardiovascular disease, as well as symptoms of chronic inflammation, undetected food sensitivities, and compromised digestive health.
About Adia Coleman
Much of my sense of purpose comes from helping people establish eating habits to optimize their health. I'm a 2016 graduate of East Carolina University with a B.S. in Nutrition & Dietetics. I completed my dietetic internship through Lenoir-Rhyne University. Previously, I earned a B.S. in Biology from Hampton University and a Master's in Public Health from Medical College of Virginia at Virginia Commonwealth University.
I began my career in health & wellness 10 years ago as a Weight Loss Coach and have also worked as a Naturopathic Lifestyle Coach under the supervision of a Board Certified Naturopathic Doctor. My experience in dietetics includes working as a consultant Clinical Dietitian in a Skilled Nursing & Long-term Care Facility. In this role, I assessed and monitored the nutritional status of all residents and provided medical nutrition therapy for a variety of conditions including Diabetes, Heart Failure, Kidney Disease, Tube Feeding, Malnutrition, and Wounds.
In individual sessions, I explain nutrition concepts in ways that are easy to grasp & offer creative solutions for helping clients overcome road blocks to lifestyle change. I look forward to working with you and your family to meet your health goals. Blessings in Health!
