The Hoog Food Challlenge was by far the best thing I've ever done for myself to improve my health. I learned an enormous amount about my own personal dietary needs in a way that stuck with me. It's not a diet, it's a tool for feeling great.

"I loved working with Hoog. She's smart, direct, and very kind. In a very short amount of time, she was able to guide me back to my own intuition about how I needed to support myself -- and point out where my habits were less than ideal. I walked away with great recipes, easy practices, and -- most importantly -- more confidence in my step."

"In a few words, Katy has changed my life. I am as stubborn, obstinate, and thick-headed as they come. I am also a willing convert to a very new way of thinking thanks to Katy’s gentle approach. As someone who’s struggled with weight her entire life – I’ve spent the past 40 years viewing food as either bad (aka naughty) or good (aka not naughty). Thanks to Katy, I now understand that delicious foods including bacon, cashews, and full-fat cottage cheese are not only okay, but can be good for me at times AND help with me with my weight loss goals?! (I know, I still can’t believe it either, but it’s true!)"

"Katy has made an enormous impact on the well-being of myself and my family, through her thoughtful approach to holistic wellness. I can't say enough about how grateful we are to have met her and to use her services. Everyone needs a Hoogs in their life!"

"Hoog Holistic Nutrition is an impressive, responsive new health choice that improved my health during 2014 - and each day forward.
In my personal experience, briefly, Hoog opened my eyes to avert a very, dangerous, irreversible (and needless) thyroidectomysimply by changing my diet and food. I received education to balance my energy fields, thus moving my Graves disease and hyperthyroidism toward remission with food - and saving my vital thyroid organ by tackling its root cause: leaky gut syndrome.
Leaky gut syndrome and toxic, genetically modified foods, meats with hormones and antibiotics, and artificial sweeteners like aspartame, wreaked havoc on my gut and immune system, and are a culprit for many suffering from other autoimmune diseases.
I discovered that organic foods, and their origin, are so important for my health. Hippocrates, recognized as civilization's first real doctor, said, "Food is thy medicine, and thy medicine is food." Hoog Holistic Nutrition incorporates this into its practice, making this concept an easy, daily, healing habit for clients. My lifestyle outlook on food and alcohol forever changed for the better, and it was an easy transition, once I took it seriously. Now, I now eat to live, instead of living to eat. I am so much better for it!
My heart, thyroid, body, and soul say, "Thank you, Hoog!"

“Katy cares about your health and wellbeing. She doesn’t just give you a designated moment of her time. But rather, once she knows your needs and health struggles she is not only thoughtful to them, she will continue to inform and encourage you in your health journey.”
"With Katy's detective skills I've been able to figure out what it is that I'm putting in my body that makes me feel (and look) like garbage. And with her guidance I've been able to build a more holistic understanding of my body, what makes it feel amazing, and how all of that impacts everything else in my life. I'm getting off the spike and crash roller coaster and I've never felt more empowered."

"I am continually impressed by Katy's level of empathy and understanding of her clients. Combined with her nutrition knowledge, she is the perfect coach to help you reach your goals."
