no b-s nutrition
Let’s get real for a minute. There's plenty of nonsense advice out there (piles of it!) - from nutrition, to exercise, to how to be a "good parent". In fact, most of the information out there is loaded with b-s and doesn't do you any favors. Hard core dieting and deprivation only leads to desperation (and you downing an entire bag of chips in 5.2 sec)
I've got answers, and a big shovel.
Together we will unravel all the bad, unhealthy and straight-up ridiculous advice we hear in magazines, social media, and even our friends (with the best intentions).
It's time to cut the b-s and get real.
Conventional dieting leaves you feeling deprived, exhausted and wondering “what’s wrong with me?!” Nothing is wrong with you. You are not broken. Your diet is.
Let’s fix this for good.
What’s this really about?
If you’ve tried something before and failed —or just can’t stick with it—know that you’re not alone. After all, self-directed nutrition programs fail 98% of the time. Not to mention, what works for one person might not work well for another.
Homey don’t do fads.
Working together, we will focus on sustainable nutrition habits so you never actually feel like you’re “on a diet”. Instead of selling you a magic shake or secret sauce to pour over your food, you'll learn real, daily actions that are designed to fit into a busy lifestyle. This will help you bring health and fitness into your life in a way that works for you.
Bottom line: Every client I work with learns how to make nutrition a part of your life—without it taking over. I help you learn how to navigate your absolute worst days, not just your best days.
Is this even for me?
Have you been feeling like a hamster stuck in a wheel, spinning and spinning without getting anywhere? “Maybe I need Keto? Maybe I need Paleo? Maybe its fasting?”
Grab my hand and get off the damn wheel because this is exactly what you need.
Let me guess, you want to…
lose weight and body fat
build strength and confidence
get results and health that last
climb off the dieting roller coaster once and for all.
I work closely with my clients to help them eat well, no matter what other craziness is going on in their lives. It’s about both the good days and the days you want to throw your hands in the air with multiple expletives. (&%k this $#*t, I’m out!)
My main focus is to help you improve your eating habits—all within your day-to-day life, no matter what else is going on.
We talk about things like structure, accountability, and ownership - all so you can eat well for life. You won’t every hear me talk about a crazy diet with weird foods. Instead, this is about sustainable habits that will get you results that last forever.
What if it’s NOT for me?
Already got this locked down? Maybe this isn’t the best option for you.
If you’re looking to compete in a bodybuilding, figure or bikini competition, I’m not your girl.
But… if you need to dial things in and be more consistent I can help. Maybe you want an expert to help you figure out meal timing & macro tracking. Yeah, I’m damn good at that too.
How do I know this will work for me?
I get it. Life happens. My approach is about #progressnotperfection. If you follow the recommendations and stick with me, you will get results.
Ever heard of the 80/20 rule? If you do at least 80% of what I recommend, you’ll end up leaner, stronger, healthier, and happier than you ever thought possible.
You don’t have to get it perfect. But you DO have to commit to making small, strategic changes in your life. That’s something no one likes to talk about: it takes hard work, time, and determination. Especially once the honeymoon phase wears off.
Changing your body isn’t easy, but it is possible. I’ve help many others and I'm confident it can help you, too.
Once you make the commitment to do this, I’ll be here to support you. When life pushes you around and difficulties come up, I’ll help you push back.
That’s my promise.
Will you give me a meal plan?
Nope, I don’t write meal plans. Buuuuutttt…. I will help you put together quality meals for yourself.
Meal plans and conventional diets usually aren’t sustainable. People often feel like they’re either “on” them or “off” them. They feel like they’ve failed and are beyond hope if they’re not eating perfectly at every meal. Not to mention, there are SO MANY variables that make up YOU, how could I ever tell people to “follow this one way”. That’s ridiculous.
My approach is completely different: I help you understand food and build a set of sustainable habits that will serve you for the rest of your life. This means you get to choose—with the help of me, of course—which foods are best for you, when and how much of them to eat.
You like bacon-guacamole-cheeseburgers? I sure do. And life is too short to not eat them.
I’ll help you find a way to get the foods you like in with the foods you need. This is all about teaching you how to eat for the rest of your life. No more boring meal plans.
"Macro" plans - tracking your macronutrients (protein, fat, and carbohydrates) daily to meet a certain goal - are a high level skill.. I’m not saying they aren’t for you, but they aren’t for everyone.
For the everyday person, “macros” aren’t necessary or ideal. I’ve seen clients start to rely on their macros plan to dictate food choices while ignoring their body's response. For most people, following healthy nutrition habits can produce great results.
Depending on your skill and the program you select, we can dive into macros and apply them to your everyday food choices, I just don’t start there. It’s like teaching a newbie lifter how to do a split jerk when they can’t even lock out overhead.
However, for performance-based athletes, individuals who already have a solid understanding of nutrition, are relatively lean and healthy, and those wanting to "up their game" for sport or recreation - I offer custom macro-based nutrition plans. If you schedule a consultation with me, we can discuss this more.
So no meal plans, but what about macros?
How much does it cost?
Fitness and nutrition go hand in hand. In order to see success in the gym, in the mirror, or in your health status, you need to integrate both on a consistent basis. Even if you’re not, tackling fitness yet, nutrition is the bigger piece of the pie (see what I did there?) and the best place to start.
I have a variety of options available, depending on your needs, your experience and your goals. Let’s chat and find the best option for you.
Hey. I'm Lisa D.
I'm Lisa Desilet.
I offer real, straight-forward nutrition for busy families who want to cut through the b-s and learn to eat well without losing their minds. (I get it. I'm feeding a family of five over here!)
Lisa Desilet, MSc, PN1
Through my “no b-s” approach, I make it easy to know what to eat, when and how much. Backed by a Master's degree in Exercise Science, multiple nutrition certifications (that's what all those letters mean) and a pretty solid deadlift - if I do say so myself - I've got the knowledge, tools, and plain ol' life experience you need to feed yourself and your family well (I used to be 40+ lbs. overweight myself). Who says you can’t eat a bacon-guacamole-cheeseburger and still be healthy?
My story and expertise have been featured in many online publications for how I used my own weight loss journey and professional experience to change my life. The list includes Bodybuilding.com, The Huffington Post, The Fit List, and many more. In addition to helping you feed your family well, I also work with medical providers, First Responders and CrossFit gyms all focused on Nutrition for Real Life.
It comes down to this simple statement: It all starts with food. I want to get the message out that eating "healthy" isn't as complicated as it seems. We just need to cut through the b-s and find what's real - real science, real answers and real results.
Come say "Hi!" to me over on social media, where I post regularly about food, family, fitness - basically all the fun f-words.
