You Deserve to feel Good
Functional lab testing, personalized health and life coaching so that you live a fit + vibrant life in midlife and beyond.
Just Because It's Common, Doesn't Mean It's Normal
So many women are told that everything is ‘normal’ or that they need to live with their symptoms of fatigue, weight loss resistance, low sex drive, malaise, bloating, achy joints, or poor sleep.
They are often given a band-aid solution such as antidepressants or antacids or told that they just need to eat less.
And that’s just FRUSTRATING.
These symptoms (fatigue, weight loss resistance, low sex drive, malaise, bloating, achy joints, or poor sleep) are not the problem, they are the RESULT of the problem.
If you’re ready to stop chasing symptoms and you’re ready to FEEL GOOD in your body, let’s chat.
Hi! I'm Tanja.
I am a Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner, Kinesiologist and High Performance Coach.
I combine diagnostic nutrition and brain science to help you stop emotional eating, regain energy, and reach your healthy weight so you can live vibrantly.
I want you to know what it’s like to feel good in your body.
I’ve seen women living life from the sidelines, not fully engaging in life because they don’t feel comfortable in their body. And I know what it’s like to be obsessed with food, stuck in the cycle of emotional eating and feeling like a failure.
We have one life to live, and I want you to look back at your life and know that you fully LIVED.
In my programs and through 1-1 coaching I give you the tools, personalized coaching and support, based on body and brain science, to optimize your health and live your healthiest, fullest life.
You deserve to feel good.
I care about your health and I care about you.
I'm Here to Help You Experience Vibrant Health in Midlife and Beyond
I test, I don’t guess, to assess how your body is functioning. I identify healing opportunities and underlying causes of dysfunction and create a personalized protocol (including behaviour changes) to support the body’s innate healing ability.
It’s time to stop the cycle of trial and error or piecemealing together advice you find on google or from different specialists. Together, we’ll look at ALL aspects of your health and implement a holistic, comprehensive plan to optimize wellness for YOUR body.
Here's How We Work Together:
Step 1. Intake and Assessments
We go through an intake process which includes a comprehensive questionnaire and functional lab work to identify healing opportunities.
The tests are based on your symptoms, goals and budget. They give insight to your hormones, mineral balance, detoxification pathway, digestion and metabolism.
While we’re waiting for the results, we’ll get you started on a few simple things you can do to get started right away.
Step 2. Results + Recommendations
We will go through, in detail, your lab results, so that you understand what the numbers mean, and how the results correlate with your symptoms. Then we implement your personalized comprehensive health protocol.
Step 3. Life, Mindset + Ongoing Health Coaching
I am here to support you every step of the way. I’ll help you stay focused on your goals and overcome the real reasons you struggle with your weight and eating.
Here's What's Waiting for You on the Other Side:
✔︎ Get to your (or be on your way to reaching your) happy, natural weight without the obsession
✔︎ Show up in life with energy, joy and contentment
✔︎ Have confidence knowing the things you are doing are right for YOU and YOUR body AND that you have the tools to keep going to life
✔︎ Start creating the life you want and fully LIVE your life
Real Women. Real Transformations.
Catherine now right tools to help her get her CONFIDENCE and freedom back... AND she's losing weight
Sharron lost 17 pounds and has reached a weight she didn't think was possible AND no longer fears or obsesses around food.
Lana has learned the skills to lose weight AND keep it off throughout the stressful times in her life, for the first time ever.
After decades of struggling with perfectionism, and the 'all or nothing' mindset around food, Denise mastered her mindset, discovered what works for her body and lifestyle, and is maintaining her goal weight.
"We uncover overcome WHY we struggle with our weight. I'm gaining confidence that this is what leads to permanent success. I've lost 11 pounds in the first 6 weeks. I am already making changes in how I think of myself and my future self. It makes me excited to think of that. " -Nelly
Is this Right for Me?
This is For You If Any of These Sound Like You:
- You know what to do, but you’re stuck in the cycle of starting and stopping; you can’t seem to get consistent.
- Food and weight loss are always on your mind and you want freedom from the obsession so that you can focus on other parts of life
- You struggle with emotional eating (eating when you’re not hungry because of boredom, loneliness, entertainment, because it just tastes so good, etc.)
- You are ready to challenge your past patterns, take new actions and get different results
- You’re ready to go all IN to achieve optimal health and want to leave nothing to chance. After all, why settle for fine when amazing is on the table?
- You don’t feel like yourself anymore; you know something is not right but have not figured out the answers (or you’ve been told that everything is ‘normal’)
- You’re ready to invest in yourself (you’re worth it!) even though it may feel scary or overwhelming at times
This is NOT for You if...
- You want a quick fix and are not willing to work on your mindset or change behaviours
- Have no time or bandwidth to make a change. Getting to your happy, healthy weight isn’t a full time job, but it does take some effort and intention to make a change.
- You have untreated depression, anxiety or an eating disorder. I’d love to work with you eventually, but please get help from a physician first!
- You would rather hide behind excuses or blame your circumstances rather than take responsibility for your choices
- You are not open to being coached

Some people are able to use their Health Spending Account or health account through their workplace.
Regardless if you get financial help, our clients tell us that the investment is small compared to the life transformation they achieved.
The best way to tell if its a good fit for you is to book your initial call. I look forward to speaking with you soon!
Yes. We have women join from all over the world. As long as you have access to the internet, you can join. We can access lab testing in most countries as well. If you have any questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or book a discovery call.
100%- as long as you show up and do the work. We have women who join in their late 40s, 50s, 60s, 70s and 80s.
Because the program and coaching is online, we do use some technology. The course content is on my website (I’ll set you up with access) and I have a video that walks you through the course. It’s pretty intuitive though! You’ll need to use Zoom and email. Facebook is optional. I have a step-by-step outline on how to download and login to Zoom. Some women need a bit of extra help to get started, but once they do it once, they find it easy.
Yes. We have bonus workout modules, but Fit + Vibrant LIVE IT is not a fitness program. I teach you how to THINK differently. Even if you cannot do any physical activity at all, you can still do this program.
Many of our women have supportive spouses, and many do not. Your spouse’s support is not required for you to change your life. And if you have failed so many times in the past, don’t expect that your spouse will believe that this time will be different (even though it will be!)
Instead of saying “Hey, I want to join this program and even though I’ve failed so many times in the past. You know how hard it is for me to lose weight. What do you think?” say something like “I’ve just completed a short training, and for the first time, it makes so much sense. I already feel so much better, and I want to keep going. I want to take care of myself. I want to finally end this struggle with food and diet so that I can feel happier and I would love your help and support. Are you open to that?”
You’re human, and it’s perfectly normal to be afraid to start again. So many of my members have told me that they filled out the form multiple times before hitting ‘submit’.
With that being said, changing your lifestyle does require time and energy/bandwidth.
From a time perspective, most women attend one coaching call per week (approx 1 hour) and do about 20-30 minutes of training/ course work each week. The pace is flexible and there is no behind.
Yes. Tanja, along with her team, coaches the weekly group calls, and the 1-1 calls. Plus, you’ll receive a coaching note from her each and every morning.
Fit + Vibrant LIVE IT works for all eating styles because it is not a diet. We have women who are vegans, vegetarians, have food allergies/intolerances and some who are following other specific diet plans.
In the FDN program, we work closely together to determine the best eating style to fit your preferences and lifestyle while helping you reach your goals.
If you’ve had a GI MAP by Diagnostic Solutions or DUTCH test in the past 60 days and have not yet started a protocol, you may use those test.
Although we advocate food and lifestyle changes first, supplementation is one small part of the FDN process. Most women budget between $100-$150/month for supplements. We work with each person to create a plan that matches their budget.
No. We invest a HUGE amount of time, energy, and money to support you every step of the way and we know that our winning strategy works 100% of the time for those who do the work.
We are 100% committed to your success. That’s why you need to take 100% responsibility for your results.
If you don’t feel committed to this program and are not ready to make the investment in yourself, please take more time to make a decision as we do not offer refunds once you are signed up. We want you to be all in on this journey with us!
The podcast has a lot of great information, thank you for listening!
But that’s the biggest difference: the podcast is information, working with me is COACHING and SYSTEMS.
I lay out the path to get from where you are now to where you want to be and coach and support you every step of the way.
You can ask questions and work through YOUR specific challenges with someone who knows you, and cares about you.
Awesome! You can email email@example.com or book a discovery call.
