I went to see Julie because after only 2 months at my new job I had already gained a noticeable amount of weight, and I didn’t want the trend to continue. Not only did Julie get me back on track, but she also transformed my relationship with food and my relationship with myself.
Working with her changed the way I think about what I eat. I no longer have any feelings of guilt or regret associated with eating, I only feel joy when eating the foods I want to eat. Now I’m in complete control of my weight. I got to my target weight quickly and easily, and I’m confident that I can stay there.
I would recommend Julie not just to people who are looking to lose weight, but to anyone who has ever had challenges with food, physiologically or emotionally. Julie is kind and compassionate and has realistic goals and expectations for her clients.
Thank you Julie!

Julie offered me a free nutrition evaluation when she was still in training. She met with me a few times, and gathered information via a survey about my lifestyle, exercise patterns, and eating habits. She then came back with some concrete recommendations, many of which I’ve incorporated into my daily routine. She also gave me a few recipes, which I really appreciated. All in all, I was impressed by her knowledge and ability to make recommendations that were achievable. I would recommend her to others that are looking to make a change in their eating habits.

If you are looking to shed 15 to 50+ pounds and learn a healthy lifestyle that will help you after you have achieved your goal… go to Julie Scott! She doesn’t throw frozen food or protein shakes at you, she works with you, your schedule and your current diet with minor tweaks. She treats you like a friend, not a client and is very passionate about what she does. She is there no matter what…there is no such thing as failure she says. My favorite part about her is that she says “if you want a brownie, have a brownie, but you know your truth”. There are no restrictions! You learn that the brownie is not that important and learn that eating is a part of living and loving life. Being healthy for the rest of your life includes a few brownies 🙂 Highly recommended if you don’t want the regular diet telling you how to eat. She teaches you how to change how you eat and the dialogue that happens in your head. Fantastic!

Julie’s knowledge and expertise has helped me lose 12 pounds and gain the confidence I need to make the right decisions when it comes to my nutrition. She establishes great rapport by taking an interest in your specific needs and attending to them accordingly. Since starting the supplement plan she created for me, I have more energy, brighter skin, and stronger hair and nails. She is firm but never pushy and gives me the support I need to be successful.

Taking her 8 week course at our workplace (oracle). Not expecting what I was getting into, signed up.
To my surprise, this was one of best courses on nutrition. She goes into depth to various aspects of nutrition, how it affects your body, what food to avoid, what are the safe supplements and why you should take them. She won’t force you into crazy diets, explains alternatives to unhealthy eating habits and automatically you start eating healthy and in process lose weight.
Never felt this healthy since my early 20s.

These days you have to be your own advocate for health care. It’s nice to not have to shop blindly through nutritional supplements and not know what to do (and what not to do). Having someone to guide me is a real help. I’ve heard so many things about people who bottle herbs and supplements unregulated and untested in their kitchens .It makes me feel good that Julie can help me navigate through this. I feel like she stands behind the products she used based on their integrity and their results.
I’m starting to take this nutrition thing seriously. It’s nice not to have to search fo help at the grocery store anymore.
George T. Sunnyvale, CA March 29, 2013
Julie Scott takes a very personal, private and caring approach to all of her clients. She has no agenda other than helping you reach good health and good nutrition. I thought I knew what was good eating for me and could not understand why I could not lose weight. I have now learned so much from Julie. I have also lost 20 pounds with her common-sense approach to good eating habits that I know will last my lifetime. I am not on “a diet” but rather sifted to good eating habits. I highly recommend Julie Scott to anyone seeking better health. You truly are what you eat. She can help you get rid of that demon voice inside that says, “Eat that cookie, it doesn’t matter.”
Brady S. San Francisco, CA September 25, 2013
Julie helped me get my life back. It’d been about 8 months of me either being sick, getting over being sick, or fighting off sickness. Julie listened to my problems and prescribed a regiment of supplements that got my body back on track and able to fight off illness.
The other day, I took a bike ride in the rain. I NEVER would have done that 3 months ago for fear of getting sick. Thanks Julie!

Julie is a wonderful nutritionist. She is warm, kind, and very lively. She does not force you do to cut anything out or do anything drastic. She makes the process of moving back to a healthy place easy and virtually painless.
Within a week of working with Julie, I had gained incredible insight into my body and my diet. I feel like I have more control over what I eat and over my overall health and wellness. The greatest gift our work together has given me is awareness — awareness of what makes me feel good, what is working against my wellbeing, and what options I have to enhance my health. Her focus is on empowerment and I found her approach friendly, supportive, and engaging.
Finally, there is no better teacher than experience. Julie’s experience with health and wellness has left her with a tremendous wealth of knowledge and insight into eating, nutrition, and wellness. Her experience and her friendly approach are invaluable when it comes to changing your diet or your approach to your well-being.

I recently took Julie’s 10 week weight management class and learned so much from her. She is a wealth of knowledge in the area of nutrition, supplements and other related topics. I cannot say enough about her ability to present information that honestly, we all need to know. Keep up the great work Julie – you are truly a master!
Michelle R. Mountain View, CA July 11, 2013
Julie knows what she is doing and is very personable. My only complaint is that my first two hour visit seem inefficient. I felt like I was there for a long time without getting a lot done BUT I have been feeling amazing since following her plan so I can’t complain too much.
She is the reason I discovered I was gluten sensitive. I had been to several doctors who were all clueless. Will always go to Julie first from now on!
Jessica H. Hoboken, NJ April 10, 2015
Julie Scott is so much more than a nutritionist. She’s a counselor and an intuitive healer. She listens and then thoughtfully responds with insights and suggestions that are incredibly helpful. She takes in the whole person and responds with a holistic approach. I’m so grateful to have her to help me navigate a serious health issue. Some of her advice has been more effective than what I’ve received from Stanford MDs. Thank you Julie!!!

I just finished a group 8-day detox program with Julie and I want to compliment her in so many ways for the program. First, the results – I was able to get off coffee (a minor miracle), lose some weight and re-setting and cleansing my body after the holidays.
Julie built in so much that contributed to success – group meetings at the beginning and end of the program, a few nutritional supplements to support our bodies through the change in eating, a closed Facebook group where we shared the ups and downs, great recipes (honest!) and most of all, an emphasis on mindset. Her perspective is that she strives to bring healing to both the body and the mind. She emphasized our building healthy practices not just with food, but also how we hold our thinking and emotions. For me, these are the things that underpin that reaching for food.
I appreciate Julie for her knowledge and her deep support in caring for her clients. I recommend her highly.

I’ve been a client of Julie’s for about a year now, and I am so happy I took the step to work with a nutritionist, and Julie in particular. I feel much more in control of my eating life, and Julie helped me develop strategies for the long-term, especially in advance-planning.
But the very best thing I like about Julie Scott is that she doesn’t try to make you into something you’re not. I have always been a very picky eater, and Julie has never tried to get me to be a kale-lover, or anything else that’s unrealistic or unsustainable in the long-term. She has helped me to change my eating habits *within* the universe of food I like to eat, *without* judging me. It’s easy to work with Julie because I feel that I can be completely honest with her about my eating, and have her help me in a way that will work for *me*.
I recommend her highly.

Julie helped me with my young child who was getting sick a lot. I wanted to know if there were any safe and natural solutions that would help. Not only did she help my child – who rarely gets sick now – but my whole family feels better. We all have more energy. I am sleeping better than I have in years. Thank goodness we found Julie – she is terrific!
I decided to work with Julie after attending a nutrition talk that she gave. I am so glad I did. I highly recommend both her talks and working with her directly.
Jane R. Mountain View, CA April 2, 2013
I found Julie after I read an article in the local paper: the Los Altos Town Crier and am soo glad I decided to pay her a first visit, that culminated in many more. She was instrumental in nursing me back to a healthy digestion system and referred me to a homeopathic doctor when she felt that would compliment her treatment. She has given me numerous tips on other health related topics as well.
I wholeheartedly agree with Rosalie re: Julie’s knowledge of health and nutrition. She is always upbeat and encouraging and has an infectious laugh that makes you forget about your worries. I always looked forward to my visits with her and in fact I miss them, now that I am healthy again.

A big rave for Julie. I don’t like taking any pills or supplements, I hate the taste and feeling of vitamin taste of my mouth and breathe. When I met Julie for a one-to-one evaluation, I did not have any complaints, but was getting the usual viruses in winter time when someone is sick around me. She recommended a liquid multi-vitamin which is the best ever. It tastes good, it makes you drink more water, which anyone can benefit from (you have to take it with 8 oz of water), and most importantly I have been avoiding viruses the whole Winter season. First my wife got something, the heavy cough one in December, then my colleagues got the one in January that was on the news, I did not. It is really good to know that I am working with a professional who has knowledge not only form the books, but also from a personal experience. Julie knows her business.
Asen A. Emeryville, CA February 1, 2013
Had I not developed trust in Julie by attending a couple of her health seminars, I would never have had the courage to forego well-meaning advice to put my daughter on anti-depressants. Instead, I’m seeking more effective natural remedies under Julie’s guidance.
I’m well aware that her schedule is very busy, yet somehow she makes us feel like her only clients. She made it a point to really understand my daughter’s patterns and feelings, managed to squeeze in time to attend a special class just to be certain she was abreast of the latest depression research, and most impressively, was able to prescribe a plan with razor sharp focus. I wasn’t at all surprised to learn that she was a highly educated, successful attorney before embarking on her true passion for being a natural health practitioner!
I used to rave about Julie as a brilliant speaker, and with my daughter feeling better and more hopeful, she also has my highest recommendation and gratitude as a gifted healer.
Jill R. San Ramon, CA April 22, 2013
I was immediately impressed when I had the opportunity to hear Julie speak about nutrition. I have never met someone so passionate and knowledgeable about the benefits of proper nutrition. Julie is different than other people I have heard speak on nutrition because she talks about the steps and changes you need to commit to in order to make a long-term change.
When I talked to her about helping a family member with poor health and diet, she pointed out some fundamental issues that were keeping him stuck in his bad habits.
I found her to be extremely caring and ethical as she has her patients best interest in mind. She tunes her programs towards long-term success and well-being whether it is weight loss, health benefits, boost in immune system or all of the above. She definitely makes me think about what I’m putting in my body and has taught me to look at food differently.
Angela L. Palo Alto, CA May 15, 2014
At nearly 55 with 3 kids and 30 years in a stressful job, the weight has crept on year by year, pound by pound until it is truly out of control. I can find the discipline for exercise but that doesn’t change my eating habits. Julie is non-judgemental but firm and gives no-nonsense advice on how to change bad habits for life. When you talk with her, you feel like you are talking to a friend, not a nutrition counselor. She puts your struggle into the real world and reminds you that life is complicated and everyone encounters roadblocks. She gives you a multi-faceted plan then puts you in the drivers seat. From exercise to vitamins, diet and nutrition to self respect, Julie empowers you to make the changes you want to make! I couldn’t recommend her more enthusiastically.
