Nutrition Boot Camp

This is not about getting into shape with some extreme crazy ‘fad’ diet, this program is focused on getting your eating habits in check over a 4-week period by making small changes that lead to a totally do-able, healthy, realistic, and long-term lifestyle! Each week will focus on a new challenge, tailored to your individual needs and preferences.

You will meet with our Registered Dietitian individually each week for a 30-minute consult to learn things such as how to modify your current eating habits, whether it be learning quick and healthy meal ideas, or how to combat a sugar craving.

Additionally, you will have daily access via email or phone to the Dietitian for meal reporting and questions. This boot camp is the best way to stay on track and be held accountable for your nutrition and the changes you want to make to have a healthier lifestyle!

Weekly Topics include:
Week 1: Meet your RD, diet assessment, basics - portion control, intro to mindfulness
Week 2: Choosing the right foods – meal balance, whole foods vs. processed, reading labels, navigate the grocery store
Week 3: What to eat – preparing healthy meals and snacks at home that work for your lifestyle
Week 4: Mindfulness - work on awareness to feel in control of choices – no more guilt!

Jill M. Aron, BA, MS

Jill received her B.A. in Communications from Kent State University in 2003. While working through her undergraduate degree, she received an athletic scholarship and had the opportunity to run cross country and track and field for Kent State University. In 2014, Jill became a Certified Personal Trainer through the American Council on Exercise. In 2015, Jill received her MS in Nutrition from Case Western Reserve University while working through her internship at the Louis Stokes Cleveland Veterans Affairs Medical Center where she engaged in working with the HealthCare team providing Medical Nutrition Therapy to Veterans. The internship allowed her to use her communication background and passion for exercise to help create a positive environment for the Veterans where they could gain the skills necessary to lead a more fulfilling life. Simultaneously, Case Western Reserve University allowed her the opportunity to work in many different areas, including research where she was the investigator on a study assessing the metabolic changes in overtraining with CWRU athletes.

Anna Cherian, BS, RD, LD

Anna received her B.S. in Medical Dietetics from The Ohio State University in 2016. During her undergraduate degree, she developed strong interests in urban health and using nutrition as a primary prevention tool in the community setting. This led her to the path of pursuing pre-medicine and dietetics. Through her internship experiences in many diverse areas, it solidified her passion to pursue a career helping under-served populations and improving health. Shortly after graduation she became a registered and licensed dietitian. Currently, Anna is Postbacc/M.D. candidate in the NEOMED-Cleveland State University Partnership for Urban Health. This program focuses on addressing health disparities in the Greater Cleveland area and matriculating to medical school to become an urban health primary care physician. Anna hopes to use her knowledge as a registered dietitian and eventually a doctor to help prevent chronic diet-related chronic diseases such as obesity, hypertension, and diabetes.

Currently studying for her licensing exam, she continues to be passionate about nutrition and exercise. She believes that to be the healthiest, it is a combination of nutrition, exercise and lifestyle.
