Proper nutrition plays such a huge role in aiding our overall health. You want to feel great, right? Well you have a choice everyday with every bite you take. For all the good food you eat, you’re giving your body the “information” and materials it needs to function at its best. If our bodies don’t receive the right information, our metabolic processes suffer and our health declines. This is important information for anyone – whether you have low energy, poor sleep habits, are overweight or have a digestive issue like Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), celiac or Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD), Diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, heart disease, osteoporosis and others.
Learning about proper nutrition as well as implementing new lifestyle changes can be fun and rewarding. I will help you to integrate a complete nutritional program for your optimal health and therapy. We will take into consideration your diet, exercise regimen, current stress level and environment. You can request a consultation now to ask questions related to what I provide for coaching or purchase my coaching services below.
It is my goal to help others to feel better the way I have. I am dedicated to educating and empowering you on your journey to whole wellness. Welcome!

Low-FODMAP Nutritional Coaching with Colleen Francioli, CNC
If you are feeling overwhelmed by the huge learning curve of the low-FODMAP diet and don’t have the time to read several books or blogs and want to start to feel relief soon, book a coaching session with me. Most of us are very busy and the low-FODMAP diet can be a challenge because there’s so much to learn. You will also find conflicting information online, so it’s not recommended to try the low-FODMAP diet on your own without the support of someone who knows all the nuances and intricacies of the diet. Also, whether a person has Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) or Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO), their body chemistry, current and past health, stress level and environment differ greatly from the next person – so there is no “one size fits all” approach to the diet.
My low-FODMAP coaching sessions will prepare you for your low-FODMAP journey and address your personal needs. Skype and email support as well as additional handouts and recipes are included with my Low-FODMAP coaching.
After receiving your request for your first coaching session, I will respond within 24 hours and send you a health questionnaire to fill out. This will allow me to prepare for our session and have a few suggestions and homework assignments for you to start implementing the diet immediately. After coordinating details for our meeting or call/Skype I will send you a payment link to pay via PayPal or credit card. Payment is required in advance and is $125.00 USD. Once your first session is paid I will contact you at the agreed time and we will begin your low-FODMAP journey.
First Coaching Session
The first coaching session is the most important session as it creates the foundation of our relationship and establishes our goals and priorities. Our session will start with you sharing in more details your needs, desires and other factors that are impacting your life and health. We will then cover the questionnaire that you completed in detail to make sure that all aspects to be considered have been addressed/covered. The bottom line is – the more I know about you, the more effective I’m in adding value.
After the first session you will receive:
- A personalized plan – this plan you be 100% customized to fit your needs and goals.
- Handouts – handouts that have been created by my continuous research to simplify your life and give you short cuts on the most important aspects of the diet.
- Recipes – this is where execution becomes crucial – knowing what to eat – how much of it and how to make it fun with delicious recipes is the key to making this diet last through all the phases and to improved gut health in the future. I wrote over 300 recipes for The Everything® Low-FODMAP Diet Cookbook and know a thing or two when it comes to low-FODMAP food! I will share flavorful, fun and satisfying recipes as well as my tricks and tips to help boost your confidence in low-FODMAP cooking and baking.
One coaching session may be all you need depending how far along you are with learning about the diet. I have worked with clients that received what they needed with one session, where others benefited from additional sessions.
Follow up sessions are 40 minutes and each session is $75.00 USD. Payment is required in advance and can be paid via PayPal credit card or Paypal.
