A health transformation requires more than following "before" and "after" stories. It requires a step-by-step process that focuses on what happens in-between. Knowing how to start and create sustainable results is the key to seeing success in personal change.
Today's special guest, Marissa Costonis, is the health change guru. She is owner of Change Bites, LLC and a Certified Health Coach by Institute for Integrative Nutrition who helps people make easy changes in their eating habits one bite at a time, whether food is the culprit or the cure. She spent over a decade in change management consulting leading a variety of change initiatives around the world. When she developed neuropathy and several health problems began to pile up, Costonis was forced to completely change her diet. Overwhelmed and confused, she began to apply all the leading change models and frameworks to simplify her own health transformation with great success. The “5 Bites to Health” process was born. Today Costonis conducts individual and group coaching programs, workshops and enjoys guest-speaking engagements to share her unique approach and support others in their journey to health.
Marissa's book, Change Bites is the only book that provides readers with a step-by-step guide for how to change eating habits and health regardless of eating style, including vegan, paleo, gluten-free, and keto diets. This process exposes the pitfalls and challenges of a food change no matter how big or small. This unique methodology is the only one to implement proven change management best practices and tools used successfully with Fortune 500 organizations—which Costonis draws upon from her decade of experience leading global large-scale transformation projects for a management consulting practice.
