Carrie’s Story

  • She was a college athlete
  • She worked out 6-7 times a week
  • Never had weight issues… and could not even gain weight
  • Was body shamed for being too skinny
  • Always believed that how she looked equated to her value
  • Was unable to eat pizza because the voice in her head told her it would make her fat
  • Realized she had an eating disorder
  • Struggled for years with her relationship with food and not understanding it at all
  • Struggled with a lack of self confidence but faking it
  • Was obsessed with the scale and her body but nobody knew
  • Struggled with fertility and getting pregnant through IVF
  • Put on a lot of weight during pregnancy and then struggling for years with diets to get the weight off

Carrie’s Turning Point

  • Realized that her daughter’s were learning from her that pizza was too many calories
  • Joined a gym 
  • Felt  miserable at the gym and did not go back for 6 months because she was not ready
  • Began the cycle again and was ready
  • After a year of consistency at the gym, she was not seeing the results
  • A nutrition coach came and did a $5 seminar and asked about what was more correct: an apple, or a pizza with chicken
  • Learned for the first time about balancing blood sugar
  • Signed up to work with the coach for 10 days and was able to do a pistol squat with added weight!
  • She learned a lot about fueling her body, but did not learn about serving it
  • She eventually saw that, while her blood sugar was balanced, she still had a lot of inflammation and was not that healthy

Coach Carrie’s First Program

  • She began eating balanced AND clean and coaching family and friends to do the same
  • Began getting more and more referrals and started teaching more women with a 4 week program
  • Worked with hundreds of women but found that they were not staying on track for more than a year
  • She realized that she was teaching them how to eat clean and balanced, but she was not addressing mindset, nor was she teaching them how to live this lifestyle in a balanced way for life

The Birth of a Bigger Movement

  • Realized she needed to give women an opportunity to learn the trifecta
  • Women needed to know how to eat in ANY situation
  • Women needed to think about their thinking and to be taught how to be intentional when life gets stressful
  • Women needed to learn habits and strategies to be able to serve their bodies forever, no matter what changes they face in life
  • Women needed more than just a honeymoon, but to cultivate the relationship
  • With the new approach, more than 90% of women were sticking to the lifestyle more than a year later

Bringing it to the Next Level in 2022

  • Partnering with Kyani and Mark MacDonald
  • Working with health pros around the world on the Nitro Nutrition Movement
  • Being able to offer the “Target Line” to reach more people
