What you get with the Menopause Macro program:

  • A review of YOUR current food intake, movement, mindset and lifestyle that can all affect your success. Whether you are just blissfully unaware of perimenopause or menopause and its implications on your life, in the middle of the storm, or on the other side. We can help. 
  • Customized program based on YOU – not an average person your height and weight like a template program would provide. At this stage in life, sometimes food is not the priority. We assess and target areas of your lifestyle as well as nutrition to optimize you for success. 
  • All recommendations for hydration, food timing, and supplementation for YOU not a template.
  • Accountability, motivation, and education tailored to YOU and where you are in your journey through midlife and menopause.

BearPal Nutrition & Menopause Macros


I’m in my 50’s and menopausal, so if you are a female, I have been where you are, or where you are heading. I know how difficult it can be balancing your physical and health goals with work, family, and other demands. My perspective gives me a unique ability to relate to the gals moving through life’s stages. I have struggled with hypothyroidism for the last 9 years. If you have been diagnosed with any autoimmune issue, just know there is hope when things can get complicated in midlife. Proper nutrition, movement, stress reduction, sleep, and functional medicine have changed my life.

I have been a CrossFitter for 10+ years. I have gone through the competitive bug, the burnout, and now I just enjoy it in a balanced way. We can work to get you stronger, be a firebreather, or just look better naked. CrossFit not your thing? No worries. We can work with your physical capabilities and preferences. 

Whether you are concerned with performance, aesthetics or longevity (PAL in BearPAL), a flexible, macro-based approach can help you meet your goal. It is not jut about the food – we will work on stress, sleep, habits, hormones, mindset and other factors that help you reach your goals. If you have never heard of macros, we will start there and progress as you are comfortable with the process. Macro counting isn’t for everyone, so we offer other options.


BearPal Nutrition

What sets our coaching apart from a template program is the focus on education and communication. Whether familiar with counting macros or not, we will start with your current comfort level and provide educational opportunities tailored to you. We want you to learn from the process. We want you to know why you are doing what you are doing. You will have access through text and email. We will have a periodic review of your progress depending on your coaching level where we look at your food intake, biofeedback, and measurements, and then we discuss any adjustments necessary to help you crush your goals.

This is ultimately your journey, and I am here to help you along the way!
