Holistic Health Coach Helps Clients Transition to a Plant-Based Diet

Amanda Laukaitis, a certified holistic health coach with a certificate in plant-based nutrition, will give a free presentation about her new holistic healthy diet consulting business at 11:30 a.m., May 12, at the Gulf Coast Family Fitness Center, in Cape Coral.

Laukaitis, who transitioned to a plant-based diet three years ago, provides personalized coaching by phone. “A plant-based diet has given me great health and energy, but more importantly, it has led me to my life’s work,” she explains. “New information is very exciting and motivating, but unfortunately, changing behaviors can be hard because it requires discipline to change what we believe to be true about the world and ourselves.

“When people come to me looking to transition, I help them figure out what to eat, but that is only part of the process. More importantly, I teach people how to turn these healthy habits into behaviors that last. I help women create a health plan that fits into both their full-time jobs and commitments.”


Event location: 814 SW Pine Island Rd., Ste. 102-104. For more information or to RSVP, email EmpoweruHealthCoaching@gmail.com or visit EmpoweruHealthCoaching.com.
