Work With Maggie

Hi I’m Maggie Michalczyk, RDN. I’m so glad you’re here.

Do you want to feel confident in your body?

Do you want to love the way your clothes fit?

Are you sick of constantly dieting with no results?

Do you want to have more energy in general?

Do you want to want to lose weight and still have fun?


Millennials are the largest living generation, and will have more spending power than baby boomers this year.


I get it. You want to eat right, create Pinterest worthy meals made up of trendy superfoods you see on Instagram, maintain your social life, workout as much as possible, and grow your side hustle without waiting for anything for any of it. I’m the same way. I said bye to corporate America so that I could help people like you are struggling to balance it all, but with the right tools know that they can.

I don’t believe food and eating is a one-size-fits-all approach. I will work with you one-on-one to customize a plan based on a way to eat that works the best for you. We’ll focus on making small changes that will lead to habits that will last forever.

No more rides on the on-off dieting cycle. No more guilt about the food you ate when you were out with your friends. And no more feeling like you’ll never really be able to eat the way you want and still have fun. How am I an expert in millennial nutrition? Because I am one. I’ve take my personal experiences, struggles, victories, insecurities, and learnings to create a program that accounts for health, nutrition, exercise, mindfulness, intuition, sleep and oh yeah this thing called a back up plan. So your day didn’t go perfectly, you didn’t make it to the gym, you celebrated a coworkers birthday with a cupcake, and now you’re feeling bad about the whole thing. Don’t. Let me show you how not to.

My nutrition mantra is simple. No fads. No fake foods.

The best part? Everything is tailored to you. From the grocery store you shop at, to the gadgets you have in your kitchen. I’ll consider every detail that may be serving as a roadblock for your success, and turn it into a bridge on the path to sustained success.

Are you excited yet?




As a dietitian and pumpkin enthusiast, it’s extremely important to me to not only show people every single pumpkin product I can find, but also to spread the word about products and foods I use myself and truly believe in. I feel it’s my job to make grocery trips to the store for people easy and stress-free by providing them with the knowledge on trusted brands arming them with a great recipe they are excited to make!
