About Melanie Monaco
Intuitive Eating, Integrative Nutrition, Mindful Movement melaniemonaco.com
Hey there! I’m Melanie Monaco, a Certified Integrative Nutrition Expert, Yoga + Fitness Instructor, and Eating Psychology Coach.
I help women who have struggled with yo-yo dieting be able to freely eat the foods they enjoy, cultivate a body they love unconditionally, and develop lasting confidence.
After spending nearly over a decade of my life biting the hooks of diets promising 'easy/simple results' and being left not only disappointed, but hating my body even more... I knew something needed to change.
I went on a journey of discovering how to feel healthy and confident without deprivation, guilt, or shame.
97% of women struggle with a negative body image. I have definitely been one of those women, AND I have come out on the other side (thank goodness!) Unfortunately, because our dieting culture encourages these body image issues, so many women are left:
Feeling overwhelmed by the wellness industry
Anxious around food
Attaching self-worth to a number on scale
Detached from their body's inner wisdom
I created The Self-Love Lifestyle to offer a step-by-step individualized approach that helps women
Cultivate a healthier diet and lifestyle with ease
Create a confident and loving body-image
Turn emotional eating into enjoying true nourishment
Fall in love with their body and life
I not only share what I learned on my own journey of healing my harmful dieting patterns and negative body image, but I also offer all of my knowledge as a graduate of Nutrition School, as a Yoga and Fitness Instructor, and Eating Psychology Coach to the women in my programs.
I work with women who, like me, are looking to leave behind a negative body image and anxiety around food, so they can feel grounded, glowing, and grateful for their body and life. Women who are ready to fall deep into self-love.
