Guest Contributor - Registered Dietitian

Stephanie Greunke is a Registered Dietitian, Certified Personal Trainer, and Whole Health Educator® specializing in paleo nutrition, fitness, and holistic wellness. Her current education and certifications include:

 

  • Bachelors degree in Nutritional Science  from the University of Wisconsin – Green Bay
  • Certified Personal Trainer (NASM)
  • Currently pursuing a Master’s Degree in Food Science, Nutrition, and Health Promotion from Mississippi State University
  • Completed a certification program in Whole Health Education® from the National Institute of Whole Health

 

She has over two and a half years of experience working in the product development and food labeling departments of a large, private label food manufacturing company. Therefore, she understands the complexities and composition of today’s typical packaged foods. She recognizes the importance of a whole-foods style approach which emphasizes foods that contain single to minimal ingredients and are “clean.”

 

Her background also includes experience in worksite wellness, helping a diverse group of individuals reach their short and long term nutrition goals. While she acknowledges nutrition and fitness as key targets in overall health and performance, her emphasis in psychology and holistic training allows her to fully understand the various psychological and environmental factors that are involved in motivating individuals.

 

She has helped clients with a wide range of nutritional needs enhance their athletic performance, improve their mental and physical health, and make positive lifelong behavior changes. These individuals range from those new to fitness all the way to United States Marines. Her personal mission is to empower individuals to realize their inner greatness through education, fitness, and nutrition. She believes that nutrition is not an all or nothing concept and there will always be room to tweak your routine. With the right frame of mind and creativity, food can be a passion and not a struggle.

 

She provides nutrition and wellness coaching through her personal website (www.registeredpaleo.com) and will work to find a way to make your wellness vision become a reality!
