Nicole Anagnos, M.Ed
I am a Certified Health Coach accredited by the American Association of Drugless Practitioners. I received my training from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, where I learned innovative coaching methods, practical lifestyle management techniques, and over 100 dietary theories; everything from Ayurveda, gluten-free, and Paleo, to raw, vegan, macrobiotics, and everything in between. With my knowledge, we co-create completely personalized actions based on your goals to move you toward your ideal vision of health within your unique body, lifestyle, preferences, and resources.
Before I became a Health Coach, I earned a B.A. in Psychology at The University of Massachusetts Amherst and a Masters Degree in Education at Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts, graduating with high honors. Though I enjoyed my previous schooling, it wasn’t until I started at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition that I felt I was following my destiny. After my first day of classes, I had no doubt that this was the work I was meant to do.
I grew up as a heavy child. I ate fairly healthy food, but skipped meals and ate outrageous portions. I also exercised, but not hard enough or long enough. When I was a junior in college I decided it was time for me to get healthy and start taking this seriously. I woke up one day and decided to start walking. Over the next two years by adding exercise and reducing my portion size, as well as adding more veggies to my daily regimen I gradually lost about 70 pounds.
This was a life changing experience for me. I realized that I loved healthy food and shopping at the Health Food store, and enjoyed exercise so much that it dominated my free time. For this reason I am so excited to share what I have learned with you. From demystifying the health food store to simple healthy cooking to enjoying exercise, I am so excited to support you in your journey to amazing health!
In my late 20s I gave birth to my twins. Now my focus became raising kids who not only loved and craved healthy food, but also had no food issues or the feeling of deprivation. Don't get me wrong...we eat cookies! We just try to make them at home with good wholesome ingredients. I am absolutely passionate about helping mothers start their kids off on the right foot. I am certain that I can help even the pickiest eater (child or adult) find some healthy options that they will love!
