About Foods 2 Fit

Josephine Burrows


I am a Registered Holistic Nutritionist, Certified Functional Nutritionist, Certified Keto Coach as well as additional coaching and education with the Paleo Diet,  Eat To Perform, sports performance, hormone balance,  and paediatric nutrition.  I'm also a CrossFit coach who runs a CrossFit-Method Training gym, X.Fit Junction, at my home with another trainer.  I live with my husband, 3 boys and 2 dogs, that keep me on my toes every day.  I have learned over the years that a good diet, along with some fun,  exercise and some down time are key to balancing a busy life in today's world.  

Your Health & Wellness Do Matter

I endeavour to look at your current state of health, including your diet, exercise & lifestyle routine, and I will come up with a plan to optimize all of these aspects to advance your state of health and well-being for now, and the future.  Each of these components intertwine and working on all of them, will result in a greater you.

Ancestral Methods

I do promote ancestral methods towards achieving health and well-being for several reasons.  It's anti-inflammatory, it's energizing, well-balanced and ultimately... because it works. Every disease stems from inflammation, so  taking that away will benefit you in every aspect of your life.  Everyone is unique, so I look at what works for you.  I've been following and studying these methods for a decade now and the results are outstanding.  The proof is in the chocolate avocado pudding!

Aspects of Health

Food

I have to say this is probably my favourite subject!  I could talk food all day long, but I'll try to keep this short...I promise.  I am passionate about our daily diet being around whole foods.  (And before I go further, I refer to diet as what we eat at each meal, not as in a 'fad diet' where we're restricting calories.)  I can't say enough of about sourcing most, if not all, of your food locally.  Research what Farmer's Markets and CSA Farms are in your area, or contact me and I can hook you up with some.  Food is the basis of your health.  It comes down to the old saying 'You are what you eat'.  Literally every cell in our body is made up from elements of our food, so healthy food=healthy cells.  I can help you navigate through grocery stores, what's in your pantry/fridge at home and help you budget your food costs.  It doesn't have to be expensive to eat healthy.

Get Moving

This is one of my goals in life...to get people moving.  I have a hard time when I see adults and children with weight and health issues not getting up and doing something.  It doesn't mean you have to go out and run a marathon, it can be as simple as a short walk each day.   I encourage people to incorporate some level of strength work which can be adapted to any age or capability.   It builds muscle that keeps us strong to perform daily living functions, it strengthens our heart muscle keeping us pumping (and alive!), and a host of other benefits including bone density, range of motion, increased confidence, oh, and I almost forgot...fat loss!

The Road to Health

To move towards a healthier you, you need to look at all aspects of your life. This entails your daily diet, exercise/movement, sleep, stress management, daily responsibilities and good old fun.  This is unique to each individual and forever changing, as new challenges arise and as you enter new stages of your life.  We'll work on finding that balance by looking at all of those aspects of your life and incorporating strategies to optimize your health and well-being.

Health Issues

image58

Are you experiencing symptoms, diagnosed with a disease/issue or afraid you might be in the future??  I can look at your current issues/concerns and work on a diet, supplementation and lifestyle changes that can get you on the road to recovery and feeling great again.  All diseases/issues stem from inflammation that can be improved, or possibly reversed with food, minerals, vitamins and that balance that we spoke about earlier.  Don't underestimate the power of food!!  If seeking medical attention, this can all be incorporated with your course of treatment.  

Need to Optimize your Sport

image59

Behind every activity, whether it be organized sports, a routine at the gym or working towards a running event, nutrition is key.  Feeding your body the proper nutrients can help you reach that goal or to succeed further in your sport.


Can Our Kids Eat Better?!

image60

In most cases, yes!  Along with those busy lives we lead, it's easy to reach for processed foods to feed our children.  Remember we are what we eat, so yes, what our children/teen are eating, are the building blocks of who they are.  Attention issues, no energy, angry, not sleeping well...these can all improve with a proper diet.

Fats and All That Project

Are you looking to try out keto...with a realistic approach?

I'm sure you've read and seen all of the hype around the ketogenic diet these days.  Yes, it has fabulous benefits, but a lot of the programs you'll find are based around men, and guess what, women are a little different, especially when it comes to diet.  Our hormones are much more complex than their's and food and lifestyle is closely knit with these processes.  My approach is to get you there gradually, while healing your body on the way.  Moving too fast to get yourself into ketosis, can cause more harm than good.

Fats And All That Project

8- week project to get you eating real food while slowly transitioning to burning ketones (fats) as your main fuel.  We will work on balancing your hormones on the way, and once you're in ketosis, your whole body shifts into this optimum state where you have daily kick ass energy!

Next Project Start Date & Why 8 Weeks

The next project will start Monday, January 14th and run until March 10th.  Why I say 8 weeks is....I break it up into 3 stages...the first 2 weeks is cleaning up your diet and balancing your blood sugar levels, weeks 3-6 will be transitioning you over to a keto-fat-adapted state and the last 2 week are fine tuning what suits you.  These 8 weeks will be focused around whole foods, we'll go over tips and strategies   to get you comfortable in the kitchen and preparing healthy meals...all leading to success!

Foods2Fit Blog

I like to share nutritional, exercise and lifestyle information that can help people get to a better place.  Once I get more efficient at this, I will include a space where you can sign up to receive my monthly (or random extras when I find something to rant about) blogs on topics that should be of interest to most, if not, all of you.  For now, I will just insert my blogs (I really do need a more creative name for this....any suggestions?) below.
