Half Belly Health is a comprehensive nutrition coaching community dedicated to supporting individuals in the medical weight loss community by addressing the gaps between intervention and sustainable lifestyle changes. While we understand that you may have come across numerous catchy phrases and empty promises, we’re here to share our story.

Hi! I’m Whitney! As you can tell, I’m passionate about my mission. From a young age, I was taught that size, weight, and health were inseparable. At just nine years old, I caught myself criticizing my own stomach while attending a birthday party at a country club swimming pool. No one made any comments or ridiculed me, but that moment sparked a cycle of self-loathing and shame.

Early on, I began considering medical interventions for weight management. Although I never opted for surgery, I explored prescription weight loss pills. However, I soon realized that my struggle with food went beyond mere sustenance—it was an attempt to fill an emotional void. Regrettably, the idea of seeking help from a food therapist or counselor never crossed my mind. I didn’t think about insurance coverage or the privilege I had in accessing such services.

When I underwent the vertical sleeve gastrectomy, I was fortunate enough to have a dedicated team of therapists, nutrition coaches, personal trainers, and a physical therapist. They diligently worked on addressing the shame and trauma that hindered my progress. Three months into my journey, it dawned on me that the support system I had was not the norm. I knew something had to change. The bariatric community needed a pathway from surgery to the lifelong pursuit of well-being.

However, it didn’t stop there. I recognized that individuals who hadn’t undergone bariatric surgery also longed for compassionate, shame-free health coaching. And so, I rolled up my sleeves and founded Half Belly Health. You can follow Half Belly Health on social media on IG, Facebook, and TikTok.
