Meet Your Coach!
Hi! I’m Melissa Conover, MS, RD and your Nutrition Coach inside of the Strong Not Skinny: Nutrition Foundations Group Coaching Program! I’m a passionate, dedicated dietitian devoted to helping people to trust their bodies and develop patterns of eating that help them to feel their best.
After struggling with calorie restriction, over-exercising and bingeing patterns, I knew I never wanted to feel that way again. After working with a dietitian that helped me to understand how to fuel my body, I knew I wanted to help other people to feel better too by pursuing a career in dietetics.
I believe that health starts with mindset & small habit changes that help us to function optimally. Food and exercise should be things that we look forward to every day, not areas for stress or dread. With the right tools and support systems, food can become a powerful tool to help you reach your fitness goals. From mindset to managing lifestyle factors, you’ll leave Strong Not Skinny: Nutrition Foundations Group Program with actionable solutions that will make you feel your best for life.
Fuel your body.
Nourish your mind.
Energize your life.

You're a goal-oriented person that knows you want to keep your body healthy so you can feel your best from the inside out. So you got a gym membership, started keto and just couldn’t stick with it. It was really hard and you found yourself wondering, “Will I have to do this forever?” You’ve been watching friends having successes with their diet and & fitness plans, celebrating every single win while you watch from the sidelines feeling overwhelmed and hungry. The loneliness of being the only person struggling feels isolating and hopeless.

Curriculum Sneak Peek
Week 1: Mindset & Food Relationship
We’ll start from the beginning and go back to basics. It’s never too soon for a refresher or to start rebuilding your relationship with nutrition from the ground up. We’ll explore what it means to have a true growth mindset, the 80/20 rule, track and incorporate nutrition strategies that you’ll stick with for life.
Week 2: Calories & Portion Distortion
Ever go to a restaurant and think, “This is a massive plate of food!” That’s incredibly common. We’ll discuss portion sizes and strategies to measure portions that don’t involve a food scale or measuring cups. Frazzled about fiber? Confused about carbs? It’s a lot of information! We’ll take a look at nutrition labels and you’ll learn how to read them the right way.
Week 3: Prepping For Strength In The Kitchen
Have you seen those beautiful pictures of meal prep containers with the same food ready for every single day of the week? We don’t do that here. This week, we’ll learn about meal prep for busy lifestyles AND preparing meals that aren’t boring.
Week 4: Mindset For All Occasions
Do special occasions and holidays stress you out? I’ve been there. Together, we’ll develop a plan so you can feel confident at every event you attend because you’ll know you’re making the right choices for yourself. Dreading your holiday leftovers? We’ll talk about that, too. This week is all about setting you up for success.
Week 5: Performance Nutrition & Q+A
I’ve seen you dabbling in the gym. Whether you love to stay active, you’re training for a race or have a strict lifting plan, nutrition will be so important for you to hit your goals. This week we’re talking about all things performance nutrition, recovery, injury prevention and more.
Week 6: Hormone Balance & The Mood/Mind Connection
I’ll bet that you didn’t realize your hormones and blood sugar balance play a role in the way you feel on a day-to-day basis. Factors like sleep, stress, caffeine intake and overall caloric intake can have an effect on the body’s hormone levels. If you identify as a woman, you’ll be even more sensitive to those subtle changes! The mood-mind-gut connection is very real & if hormones are throwing off your mood, your whole nutrition plan can go by the wayside. You’ll learn best practices for keeping your body in a state of balance so you’re never left diving headfirst into a sleeve of Oreos again!
Week 7: Debunking Fad Diets + Tricky Marketing
Is your head spinning from all of the diet ads popping up every time you scroll through your social media feeds? I get that - it can be overwhelming! Consider this your open forum to ask any questions on your mind. We’ll also take a deep dive into marketing tactics and how to spot them from a mile away while you walk the aisles of the supermarket.
Week 8: Habits For Life
Did you know that your stress could be preventing you from achieving your health goals? This week we’ll be discussing all things stress management and giving you solutions that you can reuse whenever life gets a little bit too hectic.
"Melissa has touched on everything! She is wonderful - I've genuinely learned more through her than I ever have from any program or nutritionist. I used to weigh myself daily. I used to think "Do I have to starve today?" I used to be scared of carbs. Now, I've realized I need them for energy. Since working with Melissa, I've lost 8lbs and I feel prepared for my son's wedding!"
- E.I., Strong Not Skinny Participant
My blood test came back... my a1c was down, my sugar is now within normal range, I've lost 4lbs and my energy is up! This program has helped me so much with the support I get from my team, but most of all Melissa's knowledge and coaching."
— D.C., Strong Not Skinny Participant
"I've definitely lost weight since my pants are fitting better, but my biggest win is finding myself trying to meet my 5 veggies a day goal! And now, instead of always having meat, I give fish a try! I've also become much better about my sleep habits - I get my 7 hours in no matter what!"
— N.A., Strong Not Skinny Participant
"Strong Not Skinny has been great! The meetings were so informative and so were the Q+A sessions. I feel armed to make better food decisions when I'm out or at the grocery store."
