How to Eat Healthy when Life Interferes: A laid-back approach to eating healthy that still achieves the desired result.

Dina Caldwell

Being told to “eat healthy” sounds simple enough, but it’s easier said than done when life gets in the way. That’s where Dina Caldwell steps in. She’s CEO of Dharma Bums Vegan Health & Lifestyle Coaching, which offers a laid-back approach to eating healthy that still achieves the desired result.

“Life doesn’t know that you are trying to lose weight, plus juggling a family and career,” Caldwell says. “Dharma Bums caters to clients’ needs, wants and desires to make a nutrition plan that’s flexible enough so that when life demands their attention, they don’t disappear into the abyss.”

She notes that one of the best things about health coaching through Dharma Bums is that it’s done in the client’s home, at times that suit his or her schedule. “Not having to leave home or miss work to attend a session makes it much more likely that clients will stick with the program and see good results,” she says. “And I know from experience that once clients start seeing results, they’re motivated to keep going.”

Caldwell is a holistic health practitioner certified by the American Association of Drugless Practitioners and a health coach certified by the Institute for Integrative Nutrition. She also received the David Wolfe Nutrition Certification and certification in self-care through the (Deepak) Chopra Center.
