Life is full of new choices. And by making better choices, you help yourself feel better! You have the power to achieve the body and spirit wellness you crave, as what’s called genius is working for an abundance of life and health. Nowadays, Health Coaches are increasingly tasked to help patients implement daily lifestyle changes, so here we go on a task to reveal a little bit about the mind and heart of Dana Dinnawi, the empowering health coach and dietitian, who graced us with some of her healthy insight for a dynamic wellbeing… so let’s go!
How did you discover your passion for empowered wellness?
I’ve always been interested in health and healthy diets. Several years ago, I thought I was doing everything right: eating well and leading a healthy lifestyle. But in reality I didn’t feel good at all. My body was suffering. I was gaining weight. Plus; I had no energy, no enthusiasm for life, and no desire to wake up and do any of my basic duties towards my family. By coincidence, I discovered that all of this was related to the so-called “healthy” foods I was eating. I went on a 10-day cleanse and all of these symptoms disappeared. Soon after, I decided to become a health coach and learned about the relationship between what we eat and don’t’ eat, and our overall health. And that’s how it all started!
Where does your passion come from?
My passion comes from my desire to change people’s perception about food; that it’s not just something you eat, but kind of medicine that does affect every aspect of your well-being.
How do you manage to keep your clients motivated?
I support my clients throughout the entire process of changing their nutrition habits. I help them see the bigger picture beyond simply losing weight. Having that longer-term view/goal of long lasting health is key.
Your definition of a Life Extraordinaire?!
It’s living life on your own terms in a way that lights you up daily; whatever that means for you.
What is the best advice you have ever received?
“No” doesn’t mean no, it just means “not yet.”
What is the thing you would like to change about the world?
How it eats!
