Is this you?
Stomach issues? Afternoon dips and cravings? Lack of energy and mood swings? Struggling with weight management? Pregnant or just gave birth? This is what nutrition coaching can do for you!
- Struggling with a bloated belly, constipation or cramps after eating does not belong to a healthy body. We’ll set up a plan for you to get rid of these symptoms once and for all.
- Dealing with afternoon dips and cravings for sweet or savoury food can be a sign of a lack of certain nutrients and vitamins. We’ll have a look at the foods you eat and at how we can change those so that you stay full for longer and do not feel the need to snack in between.
- Do you have the feeling that your lack of energy, sleep or changes in mood could be related to what you eat? I’d love to help you discover some connections and improve your overall health.
- Would you like to get rid of those last few kilos that just won’t seem to go away? I’ll be your accountability buddy.
- Would you like to gain some weight and increase your muscle mass? I can help you with that, looking at a detailed plan that suits your workout regime.
- Are your bowels sensitive and would you like to strengthen your gut and get your microbiome in balance? Together we can create an action plan for your situation.
- Are you pregnant or did you just give birth? I host baby courses and am busy writing a book for pregnant women and am specialized in helping out with nutritional advice for these situations.
"You are the greatest project you will ever work on!"
This quote is basically my key-take out of the coaching with Annalena.
Annalena is a wonderful person with lots of empathy and a great knowledge around food and nutrition. With her amazing recipes, tips and tricks she gave me a fantastic guidance on how to live a healthier lifestyle, appreciate food and nourish my body the right way. She showcases how essential it is to appreciate the body you live in, the need to be kind to yourself, to listen to your gut feeling (literally :-)) and just be yourself even if your body has little flaws…I would say forget all the diets and strict regimen but meet up with her, to find the true beauty of food and learn to love your body.
I got in touch with Naela Health to get my hormones back into balance. During our conversations she explained very well what and especially why certain changes to my diet were necessary. She showed me how to make these easy adjustments to my lifestyle with good preparation.
I really like her practical approach to nutrition.
Annalena helped me to slowly and subtly change the way I have been eating, but most of all making me conscious about what I eat and what that does to my body. Together we discovered what works for me and I am so thankful I finally feel way better, I restored a healthy relationship with food again and I actually know what is good for me personally through her experience and in depth knowledge that she shared with me.
I would absolutely recommend Annalena as a nutrition coach. She has a wealth of information which she shares without being pushy. She never told me to stop doing certain things but just gave gentle nudges towards a healthy lifestyle. After my 3 month program with her I felt reborn. I lost 2% body fat and gained almost 4% muscle tissue.
Within weeks I started to enjoy cooking again and with her help I made a total shift to eating well again. I learned so much from Annalena regarding e.g. nutritions, snacks, intermittent fasting and hormones that I now feel well equipped to live a healthier life.
Annalena helped me to adjust my diet in such a way that it is varied, very tasty and nutritious!
The coaching program has contributed to a life without stomach pain! I enjoy cooking again, trying new recipes and experimenting! Especially the realization that healthy eating is not about scarcity, but about abundance.
I have lost a few pounds, I have almost no stomach pain and I see the kitchen as a playground where I can experiment. I now realize that when I look lovingly and abundantly at food and my body, it really can't go wrong!
Thanks to Naela Health, I understand what nutrition does to my body and mind, what I need to consume for optimal focus, and also how to apply it in practical terms.
As a busy entrepreneur, regular meals were not a priority. Now I always have breakfast and I understand which nutrients are important, what my plate should consist of. The happy conversations, the nice surprise recipes and the personal advice make it a one of a kind process.
Annalena's nutrition advice completely changed my relationship with food. I now make fresh food all of the time, snack less and feel so much healthier as a result! No more Albert Heijn pre-made salads for me;)
I found Annalena when I was struggling with digestive issues related to mental and hormonal health - in other words, STRESS!
Annie was the gentle, encouraging supporter I needed to be kinder to myself and give myself credit where it was due, to help me enjoy eating again.
In the end, I have tons more energy, I feel more in love with myself, and I also feel so much better in my body and mind.
Now, I don’t stress out when I have a few days of stomach upset. She really helped me with the mindset shift I needed towards food and my body. Thank you, Annie!
The best word to describe Naela’s Health program is holistic. It is a program that focuses not only on a healthy diet, but also it integrates aspects of mindfulness as well as physical wellbeing.
What I liked the most is how she taught me to diversify my meals with colourful, tasty, and nutritious food.
After a 3-month program, I definitely eat more consciously and I know better how to balance my meals with the food that my body needs. As a result, my energy level has increased, and my body measurements have reduced, which were two of my main goals! Without hesitation, I highly recommend Naela’s Health program.

The Naela Method
Together, we will discover foods that really nourish, strengthen, beautify and energize you from the inside-out. I want to empower you with knowledge and the confidence to find your own way around the kitchen and to establish balance and joy from food. Once you realize that food really is medicine, you unlock the door to your ideal health, beauty and well-being. The foods that nourish you, will make you feel energized, fit and strong. They’ll make your skin glow, your hair shine and your nails grow, because that is what nature can do for us! No expensive powders, shakes or supplements, just natural products that are in tune with your body’s specific needs.
It all starts with Nourish! Once you realize that food really is medicine, you unlock the door to your ideal health, beauty and well-being. When coaching clients, I focus on foods that nourish you, make you feel energized, fit and strong. They’ll make your skin glow, your hair shine and your nails grow, because that is what nature can do for us! There are so many foods out there that can work wonders for you when you fill up your plate with them. Next to nutrition, we will also work with lifestyle related habits that will help you nourish your body and achieve ideal health. A healthy lifestyle is more than just a healthy diet. Both science and common sense have shown us the importance of sleep, relaxation, movement and support.
Knowledge is power. However, without action you won’t receive any results. Throughout the program, I’ll be your accountability partner, keeping you motivated and enthusiastic. Willpower and motivation are driving factors in your health journey. Together, we’ll find your intrinsic motivation, triggering certain behaviors that naturally feel good to you and do good to your body. Food alone is not the answer, we will also have a close look at your workout regime and the foods that you can eat to boost your workout and metabolism even more. My approach is one step at a time, in order to help you cultivate new habits that you can actually stick to. The Naela Method focuses on sustainability rather than short successes. Dividing the advice up into chewable pieces, you will be able to easily incorporate the tips and tricks into your life, one bite at the time.
Food holds much more significance than just energy or calories. It is a way to connect, celebrate, discover, relax, nourish and enjoy. I want to help you find that enjoyment of preparing food and eating the right foods that make you feel good. I am a firm believer of positive nutrition, the principle of adding in instead of crowding out. Once you found this perfect combination of foods that actually work for your body, there is no need to restrict yourself.
Throughout the program, we will explore your relationship to food. Together we’ll identify any limiting beliefs that keep you from realizing your goals. We will dive into your thoughts, influences and emotions around food in order to create change. My aim for you is to have a healthy and guilt-free relationship with food, in which you permit yourself to enjoy in moderation and lead a lifestyle that makes you feel fantastic.
This last step of the Naela Method is all about acceptance, balance and allowance. If you make conscious choices about what you consume 80% of the time, then it is perfectly fine to enjoy a little for the remaining 20% of the time – that is the mantra that my clients and me live by. Nobody is perfect and if you really want to create a sustainable lifestyle, eating and living perfectly healthy 100% of the time simply won’t be possible. I will teach you to intuitively listen to your body and it’s needs as our bodies are true supercomputers, smarter than any machine out there and capable of so much. This program is all about allowing some positivity into your diet, which will automatically cut out any unnecessary cravings, kilo’s, thoughts or behavioural patterns.
Do you feel
- insecure about what to eat
- unhappy in your own body
- low on energy
- in need of guidance?
If you answered ‘Yes’ to any of the above, then nutrition coaching for you.
The course provides you with a good foundation about healthy eating and the basics of nutritional science. It includes handy lists, exercises, downloads and recipes.
If you are looking for personalized guidance, tailor made nutrition plans and recipes as well as regular coaching sessions, then the private coaching program will be more suitable for you.
No, my approach to coaching usually does not put you on a strict diet and is generally focused on abundance, rather than restriction. Using the principles of positive nutrition, we focus on what you can fill your plate with instead of what you need to stop doing.
No, there is absolutely no need to go vegan or vegetarian if this is something you do not want to do. Everybody is different, there is no one size fits all when it comes to nutrition. We will focus on a personal approach that works for you specifically, whether that is vegan, vegetarian, pescetarian or eat-everything-atarian.
No, there is absolutely no need to cut out gluten, sugar or dairy completely if your body can deal with it just fine. Everybody is different, there is no one size fits all when it comes to nutrition. We will focus on a personal approach that works for you specifically, this can be gluten free, dairy free, sugar free or full of everything.
My approach is all about creating a lifestyle that is enjoyable for you. This includes a glass of wine, some crisps or chocolate or whatever it is that you crave every now and then. During the coaching, we’ll speak about turning these moments into special occasions rather than mindless daily things.
Healthy eating and cooking shouldn’t take more time in the kitchen. Instead we should be using our time more efficiently by planning ahead and shopping and cooking accordingly. I’ll show you how!
If a private coaching program is too expensive for you, I would recommend starting with the online course which provides a fantastic base to eat well and feel good. My goal is to make information about healthy food available to everyone, so that you can make your own educated choices afterwards and this is why I created an online, basic introduction to nutrition course that is more affordable than the tailor made program. You can also find lots of advice, inspiration and nutritional science facts on my instagram and blog.
