Nutritionist & Lifestyle Coach
- Robin Nielsen
Hi, my name is Robin Nielsen and I am the go-to "growing younger" expert. I have motivated thousands to take charge of their health so they can live a happy, luscious life. That's because I understand first hand what it's like to feel older than I should.
I used to say YES to everything and enjoyed every minute until I completely burned out. I was exhausted in my late 30s. I had arthritic symptoms in my hands, and adult acne that I just couldn't get to go away. I was also carrying around an extra 10 pounds and had the biggest mood swings ever. Happy and on top of the world one minute, and grumpy and irritable the next. Have you ever felt like this?
I was a busy business owner, mother of two and President of the National Association of Women Business Owners. I was also a den mother for three years, and kept score for my son's baseball team. I competed on horseback with my family and ended up being President of the California Cattle Penning Association. Too funny, huh? Well, I was busy to say the least and didn't have the tools I needed to sustain the mental and physical stamina for this kind of schedule. I completely burned out my adrenal glands. Let me translate...my blood sugar was all messed up and my hormones were too. I was exhausted...
...and motivated to learn how to better take care of myself so I could do all the things I wanted in life. I wanted to feel and look fabulous all the time.
I am a Certified Nutrition Consultant and am Board Certified in Holistic Nutrition. Subsequently I became a Certified Schwarzbein practitioner in 2005 so I could better understand how nutrition and lifestyle affects hormone balance. (Dr. Diana Schwarzbein is an endocrinologist.) I am past board member and President of the National Association of Nutrition Professionals.
I am also founding partner of Surf Sol Sister so people can live with me for a few days to rejuvenate.
I have been married to Eric for 27 years and have two wonderful sons, Nick and Duncan. I enjoy surfing, tennis, gardening, cooking, eating, helping people to feel and look fabulous, riding, skiing and music. Mostly, I enjoy my family and love how they are all such good cooks. They are a true example of how you can change your family's eating habits during the teenage years!
