About the Author...

Amy Peters, BS
National Figure Competitor

I graduated from Texas Woman's University with a bachelor’s degree in Nutrition. After graduating in May 2000, I started my own business as a nutritionist doing nutrition consulting. Since graduating, I have worked with numerous individuals helping them reach their fitness goals through proper nutrition by not only educating them about nutrition, but also helping them learn what is right for them, the individual. My philosophy on healthy nutrition is not about being or feeling as if you are on a diet. It is a lifestyle change that is realistic and maintainable for life.

Eating is a pleasure and we live in a world surrounded by food. You should enjoy what you eat, and feel good about your healthy food choices. A healthy nutrition plan should consist of 3 basic components: variety, balance and moderation. It is important to eat a well balanced diet consisting of a variety of foods that are satisfying and convenient, as well as easy to prepare. This will ensure success on a nutrition plan. If you enjoy what you eat, and can easily plan and prepare your meals, you will be able to follow the plan with ease and not feel as if you're on a diet; because diets do not work! I work with any kind of client regardless of their goals; whether it’s losing body fat, gaining muscle, or anyone who just wants to learn about healthy nutrition. I also do contest prep for
bodybuilding, fitness and figure athletes.
