It was the best decision I ever made

“I had been feeling sick for a couple of years. My stomach hurt every time I ate, and I felt constantly bloated. I had very little energy, a lot of anxiety, and I was becoming more and more upset and frustrated. I finally looked into seeing a nutritionist, and I came across Lexy’s name. I decided to try her out, and I have to say it was the best decision I have ever made. In just a few short weeks after seeing Lexy, my stomach issues were resolved, and I felt I had more energy. Lexy truly listened to all my issues, and she recommend a great diet for me, as well as some lifestyle changes that really helped me. I am so thankful for Lexy’s help and guidance in leading me to a much healthier and MUCH happier life. I would recommend her to anyone, she truly is the best!” – Katie, Management, Boston MA

I feel great!

Before working with Lexy, my belly would hurt with bloating after anything I ate, my joints ached as if arthritic, and headaches were a normal occurrence. Years of a diet filled with inflammatory foods had me feeling run down, sick, and tired. Lexy’s plan was an amazing transition for me and it just included simple things like more fresh foods, avoiding things I found out I’m intolerant to, and clearing my body of toxins. I have done the pan mass challenge for 14 years, riding my bike 4 mornings a week with 25/35 miles per ride and my weight would barely change!! With Lexy’s plan, I’ve lost 7 lbs. I am gluten, sugar and dairy free and maintaining a loss of a lb or two each week as I continue to pay real attention to what I put in my body. My sleep is better, I’m not waking up with headaches anymore, no sugar cravings, and no bloating. At 59 years of age I intend on living a lifestyle of health and wellness finally! Hoping this information will help simplify and motivate others towards the same goal. Lexy is experienced with all the wonderful guidance to get you back on the proper course in your health journey.” – Francine, Massage Therapist, Cape Cod MA

I am so grateful for Shanti Nutrition!

“Lexy listened carefully and compassionately to my concerns and provided me with actionable, realistic steps to manage my health. Her dedication to determining the root causes of discomfort and complex health symptoms makes her practice uniquely valuable. I left my first appointment with a diet plan tailored to my lifestyle and specific needs, as well as a list of resources and suggested reading. In that first session I learned how to balance meals with better proportions of protein, fat, and carbohydrates—something that seems simple, but I never truly understood until Lexy took the time to explain it to me. Best of all, my appointments with her leave me feeling empowered and motivated to pursue a healthy, happy lifestyle in a way I never did after leaving the doctor’s office!”Sarah, Grad Student, Boston MA

She truly changed my life.

“I struggled with digestive issues, fatigue, and all around bad eating habits that where harder to break than I had anticipated. Lexy has not only helped me realize the importance of good nutrition but she has helped me feel better than I ever have before. I never realized how terrible the side effects of bad eating habits could be. Lexy is extremely knowledgeable and beyond supportive which in my experience was key as some of the lifestyle changes I made where challenging in the beginning. Any questions, concerns, or issues I had I would bring to her attention and she would respond promptly. Its comforting knowing she too had struggled with a lot of the same symptoms I was having so she knew where I was coming from through personal experience. I cannot recommend her enough, she truly changed my life.” – Rachel, Healthcare, Boston MA

Lexy is the first person to set me on the path to better health

“After a couple years of poor sleep, weight gain, hormone swings and a metabolism that acted like a rusted car in the yard, I started to educate myself.  The internet is a wonderful thing, I read everything i could find and bought TONS of stuff to “fix it”- Because that’s what we do-right?  WRONG. After wasting so much money and time I came to Lexy hoping she could help me.  She is amazing and SHE IS HELPING ME.  She gathered a detail accounting of all my concerns and complaints, what I have tried, what I was taking for supplements and most importantly what I was eating ( when and why). As a life long Diet Coke ADDICT- truly, an addict, I told her up front I was NOT giving that up.  She did not fight me, we worked together with small changes, education and an amazing detox to help get me on the right path.  Through that I found the resolve to give up Diet Coke, to the disbelief of EVERYONE that knows me.  I have poured a lot of crap into my system, so this is a long road but she has been there every step of the way with ideas, a caring ear when I was frustrated and so much encouragement.  Lexy is the first person to set me on the path to better health, I am already sleeping a bit better and while my metabolism isn’t humming on the highway-the rusted ole car is on the road and picking up speed.  If there were more stars I would add more stars, Lexy is knowledgable and caring- working one on one with her, she can help guide you to feeling better and living your best life!” – Allison, Sales/Marketing, Boston MA

I strongly recommend seeing her.

“I’ve had some pretty severe issues with anemia, endometriosis and gut problems. I’ve seen handfuls of dieticians and normally they put me on some severe diet and never address you as a human being. Lexy isn’t like that. She made suggestions that I could easily implement into my life and suggested the only iron supplement that’s made a difference with my anemia. I truly thought I was resigned to walking around, seriously fatigued, feeling like a zombie and feeling like I could fall over at any moment. Lexy showed me I don’t have to feel like that. She’s amazing and I strongly recommend seeing her!” – Katie, Finance, Boston MA

She looks at the global picture and not just one symptom

“I am a 25YO female, and for years I felt nauseas, fatigued, and just overall sluggish. I found Shanti Nutrition by doing a google search, and I knew she was the person I needed to connect with.

From our initial appointment, I felt so comfortable with Lexy and felt that she really took the time to learn my history. She came up with a plan to eliminate and re introduce foods to see exactly what was making me feel that way I did.

She was an amazing resource even after I left her office, and is just so down to earth and wants to help her clients feel better!

She looks at the global picture and not just one symptom.” – Katie J, Boston

I could not recommend her enough

“I could not recommend Lexy enough… I was really struggling to get back to feeling my best after my second baby and Lexy saved me! Because of her guidance, I now feel like I have the knowledge about my own body to refocus on my nutrition after getting off track. Lexy is so knowledgeable and lovely to work with. It is obvious that she is passionate about helping other people feel their best. There is so much information floating around on the internet, social media, etc. about the best way to lose weight/feel your best and I was overwhelmed about what to do. It is so important to know where your information is coming from and I felt very comfortable knowing how many years she has dedicated to her education and experience in the field of nutrition which is why I decided to connect with her.

The plan Lexy came up with for me was not only to change the way I was eating, but also to remember to take time for myself and establish a regular exercise routine. I have SO much more energy, and feel great about what I am eating and how my body feels! I am able to be a better version of myself with my two little girls and husband because I’ve taken the time to take care of myself. Making my appointment was truly the best gift I could have given myself.

Long story short, do yourself a favor and make an appointment with Shanti Nutrition!” – Laura, Salem MA

It has changed my life dramatically

“I came to Lexy with ‘healthy’ and ‘good’ eating habits, but with chronic stomach pain, bloating and trouble digesting foods. I could not figure out why I was doing all the ‘right’ things but still feeling so terrible!
Through working with Lexy, I truly realized how nutrition is not a ‘one stop shop’ and is so personalized for every individual. What works for me, may not work for the next person and that is so obvious to me now. Through amazing and unprecedented support through Lexy, I was able to find the right foods to make me feel good. For the first time in 3 years, I am able to feel good EVERY DAY and wake up with the energy I need while eating foods that taste good and fuel me for my active lifestyle. 

And with everything in life, it is a journey! After my stomach felt better, we started working on portions and healthy eating habits and not just ‘what’ to eat. This is the next step in my personal journey and Lexy has continued to support me through every step. I would not recommend any other nutritionist – she is THE BEST. I also feel like seeing her is something I wish I did years ago… it has changed my life that dramatically! It took away any guessing or self education that I had done -We worked through facts and there is now more mystery in diet and nutrition for my body!” – Courtney, Boston

She listened to my whole story

“Lexy is a great dietitian. I had been dealing with chronic digestive issues for almost 7 years and saw a number of specialists who couldn’t explain why I felt gross all the time, or who actually prescribed medication that made it worse. Lexy was the first practitioner I saw who could explain to me what was happening with my body, who listened to my whole story, and who prescribed diet and lifestyle changes that did so much more to help me than years of prescription medication and drugstore supplements did. I currently feel more normal than I have in years and am off the prescription drugs! If you are willing to put in the work to change your diet/lifestyle, Lexy can probably help you! She is super responsive and compassionate and I appreciate that her goal is to help you find peace with food and your diet. I would recommend her to anyone who isn’t finding the answers they need elsewhere.” – Cordelia, Somerville

I am glad to have someone in my life who understands chronic digestive problems and that there is a whole person behind a diagnosis (Crohn’s). Lexy never told me that it wasn’t a big deal like my doctors had. Taking charge of your health is always a big deal and a huge accomplishment, and she treats it as such because she’s been there. You will not be disappointed if you seek her help — I would not be writing this if I didn’t believe it!

Why Lexy?

I’ve been there. Sick, miserable, and bloated. I was healed with nutrition and lifestyle changes.

Find peace with your health now.

Through working with Lexy, I was able to learn so much about my body and how food affects me personally.  When I eliminated certain foods, life long asthma issues dissipated, afternoon fatigue disappeared, and my sleep significantly improved. I was never alone in this process. Lexy has an amazing ability to empathize with her clients and help them understand what they are experiencing and the potential causes.  She is also very solutions oriented. She won’t give up until you are feeling like your best self. I couldn’t be more grateful that I crossed paths with Lexy and had the opportunity to work with her!
