“In the Fall of 2011, I started a gluten free lifestyle after suffering from exhaustion, severe stomach pain and not feeling like my normal upbeat self. After a year of being gluten free, I was clueless as to why I started feeling my old symptoms again, along with some new symptoms. I knew it was time to meet with Colleen and figure out what was going on inside my body. When I first met with her, I felt like I could tell her anything about myself! She was extremely compassionate and reassured me that she could help me regain my energy with the appropriate diet for my body! When I left her office, I had a small stack of recipes, products and information and I felt empowered about my lifestyle changes! She encouraged me to take the ALCAT test and I was absolutely shocked at how accurate the results were!! Within three days of avoiding foods that showed up on my ALCAT results, I felt remarkably better! I am thankful everyday for Colleen’s help and her continual support whenever I need her. She is very knowledgeable and she has a sincere interest in helping others. I have referred friends and family to Colleen and I will continue to do so!!”
“Colleen has been such a huge help with working around some allergies that I have recently uncovered and transitioning to a more plant-based diet. I am so thankful for her willingness to go the extra mile to answer any questions or concerns that I have whether they be big or small. I have recently started dancing in a well-known Canadian company and she helped me revamp my eating plan to better suit my needs, keep me at my strongest, and keep my body in competitive dance shape. She helped me get through my first tour abroad and she has helped me determine some of the “facts from the fiction” in the nutrition world. I know that my diet will always be a “work in progress,” slightly tweaking to fit my needs, and Colleen is a Dietician I trust to provide me with the knowledge to do so.”

“I am a 53-year-old women going through “the change”. My lifestyle has always included good eating habits, exercise, and plenty of outdoor sports. I have been active all my life and now that “the change” has hit I have become more aware of my body changes inside and out and what I was doing “before” is not working now. I contacted Colleen to help me make better choices in my “healthy life style” . Colleen advised me to keep a food journal for a few weeks as well as my activities, so I did and presented her with this challenge. Help me! I feel tired, I have stomach issues ,not much interest in exercise, I am going about my daily routines without out much gusto, and generally feeling run down. Why is this I asked her…Colleen graciously reviewed my journal, recommended I change a few things I was eating, suggested some vitamins to see how that worked, first. Did I feel a little better…I guess, the constant dull headache went away, but now it was time to get into the rest of the reasons why I did not feel 100%. I took a food sensitivity test and to my surprise a lot of my “healthy eating” go to foods were high on my sensitivity level. Since I have eliminated my reactive foods from my daily intake and added choices that I can tolerate I feel 100% better. My bloating feeling is gone, I have more energy, my clothes are fitting better and yes, the bonus is that I have lost weight. I continue to follow the plan that Colleen has worked on for me, I know I was a big challenge for her, but I appreciate Colleen’s professionalism and passion for a healthy lifestyle and her extensive knowledge in dietetics and nutrition. I highly recommend her services and Colleen is such a pleasure to work with. I look forward to continuing to working with Colleen. Thank you ON POINTE NUTRITION.”
