My weight loss transformation
I struggled with my weight my whole life and it took years to figure it out on my own. In 2009, I lost 80 pounds by walking and slowly changing my eating habits which included eating a cookie a day!
Mindset is the missing ingredient in the vast majority of weight loss programs. Mindset is so important to long term success and is a key component of my program.
Weight loss isn't about the number on the scale. It's about losing FAT!
After 35, women begin to lose muscle mass due to hormone changes. If you only focus on exercising more and eating less, this causes stress on the body leading to hormone changes that cause more fat storage and increased cravings.
Cravings are not the problem. They're a symptom of a larger problem with nutrition, lifestyle, mindset and your fat storing and hunger hormones (leptin, insulin, ghrelin). While the number on the scale might decrease, it's likely you're losing precious muscle not fat.
Things that DON'T matter for weight loss are eating Keto/Whole30/Paleo, carb-cycling, Intermittent Fasting, eating protein bars, putting butter in your coffee, doing tons of cardio and drinking cold-pressed juice - don't drink your calories!
Things that DO matter for weight loss are balanced hunger and energy hormones (insulin, leptin, ghrelin, cortisol), moving more, sleeping 7-8 hours nightly, stress management, a slight calorie deficit, eating more nutritious food - primarily protein and produce and positive MINDSET.
In this 6-month weight loss program, I teach you to focus on the actions that DO matter for weight loss after 35. I teach you to eat for your hormones and fuel your body the RIGHT way for fat loss to kill your cravings so that you feel more energized, vibrant, less bloated and have a more positive mindset!

Are you a woman who already eats healthy, but needs more structure and ideas of what to eat? Meal plans are a great solution for you! The meal plans are low in sugar, high fiber, high protein and have the right amount of carbohydrates.
If you have done multiple diets in the past and have inconsistent eating patterns, a meal plan is not the solution for you. The behavior of dieting, restricting and overeating must be addressed in a coaching setting. Listen to this podcast episode to hear if a meal plan is a good fit for you.
I do not offer custom meal plans as these do not teach you how to build healthy habits and to stop beating yourself up when you have a bad day.
What My Clients Say
Megan is very knowledgeable about nutrition and great at helping you change what is even more important to losing weight - your mindset about it! She helped me overcome a lot of my old thinking and habits that weren't working and helped with solutions to continually make small changes throughout the program which add up to BIG changes over the long-term. I've learned it's not about a "diet" that works short term, but a healthy lifestyle I've wanted for myself, but never knew how to achieve.
Megan is awesome! I learned so much from her. The mindset training was key. I learned information about nutrition and exercise, but the biggest benefit was the mindset training and learning how everything works together with the hormones. Paying attention to the "big picture" of how all aspects of my health effect each other. Reflecting on how I feel and how eating or doing certain things affect me. Lastly, I have a whole different outlook on who I am and my relationship with food.
Megan has a unique and powerful take on weight loss approach. So I take her seriously and really come to trust her knowledge in this area. I was at my ropes end when I reached out to Megan to help me lose weight. It was a huge leap of faith to spend so much money on myself. It felt selfish and a gamble but I was desperate to finally turn a corner in this area of my life. Megan has a no nonsense, common sense approach to weight loss that really resonated with me. It was not easy and I have not nearly reached my goal, but for the first time I feel empowered that I will reach my goal if I just keep going. Megan has given me the tools and information I needed to make this happen and I know that I will eventually reach my goal with time, patience and persistence.
Working with Megan was eye opening on so many levels. She gave me the guidelines for healthy eating, templates for how to fuel my body, techniques to stay on target and the reason why habits are so hard to break, among many other things. I learned so much from her! But I learned even more about myself. This is just the beginning of my journey and I am so thankful that I made the decision to trust Megan.
I lost weight during a pandemic and learned the most important thing for my weight loss was my mindset. Megan is a great listener and she really related to what I was going through. She has a lot of knowledge about nutrition and the mental aspect of weight loss. Mindset is key!
Megan's program was everything I was always searching for. I knew there had to be more to weight loss than cutting foods and calories. She was the answer to not only my lifelong carb addition but my unhealthy habit of giving up every time I had an obstacle. I am grateful for Megan, her positivity and this amazing transformational experience. Still going strong, with new revelations every day!
Amazing 1 on 1 opportunity. Megan really asks the questions that make you think. So many ah ha moments. I am more in tune with my body and how too much or too little of certain foods effect me.
I lost 30 pounds in 6 months at 71. I could never have lost this weight without Megan's mindset coaching. Weight loss is more about your mindset than it is food.
I came to Megan Olson for one-on-one coaching when other diets didn’t seem to work any longer and I wasn’t feeling very healthy. I struggled with Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis, low iron, lack of energy and weight gain. I have been on many diets in the past and have worked with another nutritionist only to gain weight and feel awful and the plans I was on weren’t working for my health or my weight.
I originally wanted help with resetting my metabolism so I didn’t have to eat a ridiculously low amount of calories just to lose a pound or two or gain weight when I exercised and not knowing why.
Megan had me on an eating plan that was helping to balance my hormones and be kind to my thyroid. The eating plan resulted in increased energy, weight loss in pounds (50 lbs) as well as several inches, no more energy crashes. My Hashimotos condition greatly improved, my sleep improved as well as my outlook on life in general. I now walk 5 km to and from work and am back on a regular fitness plan while eating real food without skimping on taste or calories. The best part is I have lost several dress sizes as I continue along my journey to better health and fitness. The most amazing side effect of my plan is I am feeling so much healthier than before I started working with Megan.
I came across Megan’s website attracted to her healthy recipes and then I read Megan’s story. Megan’s journey had many similarities to my own. What I love about Megan is she has walked the walk, she didn’t just tell me what I should be doing but she has lived it herself and succeeded. This greatly inspired me and everything that Megan said made sense and I could hardly wait to contact Megan to start working with her.
Megan is an inspiration with her own experience and offers positive encouragement and motivates me to continue on my journey to be the best I can be and to be successful with my health and weight loss. I highly recommend Megan for one-on-one coaching.
When I think back to all the “diets” I’ve tried (and I’m confident I’ve done them all), none of them have pushed me out of my comfort zone like this program.
You need to feel uncomfortable to get comfortable. You need to work your mindset more than anything to move forward and adopt a healthy, sustainable lifestyle...that is what this group and Megan can help you with.
Megan says what you NEED to hear not what you WANT to hear, and you have to make the choice on whether you’re truly READY to listen. If you’re not ready, that’s okay. I wasn’t always ready either.
Lastly, I love that I don’t have to doubt what I’m doing is right. Megan’s education, credentials and dedication to her clients gives me the confidence to know I’m on the right path.
Best investment I've made in years! The knowledge I've gained about nutrition and hormones is invaluable. Without a doubt, the key to my success has been mindset. I lost 18 pounds in 2 months and I know this will take time, but Megan has given me the tools to do this on my own. This is the first time in my life that a weight loss program has made sense.
I worked with Megan and let me tell you …. WOW …. it was absolutely wonderful and I strongly believe that this can help many women AND men who want to reduce cravings, reduce bloating, possibly lose weight (although the main goal is to acquire tools and skills that will last forever), balance out hormones and overall develop a lifestyle that is SUSTAINABLE in the long run! This is not a diet, this is a beautiful way of eating that will leave you feeling so full!
To be honest, the very first day I woke up scared and nervous because I had no clue what to expect, I thought I was going into something strict and something that I would not be able to maintain. Boy I was so wrong, looking back now I have no idea why I was even nervous because I ate MORE THAN EVER, and I felt so full, SO GOOD, and not restricted AT ALL.
When you think of of all the foods that you CAN’T eat , this is the opposite, because I NOW think of all the food that I CAN EAT, like cheese and potatoes and healthy fats and BACON!! Yes, BACON!! This really is a wonderful easy way of eating and aquiring skills that will help YOU be the BEST version of yourself, physically and mentally. Thank you MEGAN for the phenomenal experience. I would recommend it to anyone.
I’m grateful for the opportunity to work with Megan. She has helped me peel back the layers and help me discover myself a little more. My mindset has changed and I continue to make steady progress because of her ability to teach me what I need to know. It is a process and not a race. I’m able to see small successes. She has amazing recipes too!
I had no idea how dependent I was on sugar to get me through the day. Megan's program challenged my body and my thinking, led me to discover a new relationship with real food and myself. Megan’s wealth of knowledge and understanding from past weight struggles guide participants who invest in themselves toward a sustainable and realistic lifestyle. I encourage you to make a change for yourself. I did and lost 50 pounds!
I joined and it was one of the most amazing experiences I committed to. I not only learned the importance of when to eat the right foods, how my meals should look, etc. I also learned more about myself and grew. This is not your typical YES Foods NO foods… you can still live with the foods you love, it’s just learning how and when to incorporate them and trust that it helping you SO much!! I can promise after the first two days (once you get the hang of it) you’ll want to continue this type of lifestyle!! I definitely encourage and recommend this to anyone looking to improve their overall health and not feel restricted or stressed from the process!! Megan is amazing and goes above and beyond to be accessible, and offer all that she can to make everyone’s experience successful!!
You are not the problem. Diets are the problem. Diets teach you to restrict foods, they mess up your hormones and create an unhealthy mindset with food and your self-esteem.
