Re-Brand YOU

Learn how to take the leap from struggling with health issues to living a healthy, vibrant life

An 8-week program for women who have spent years trying all the fads and are ready to make real, lasting changes to their health. Let’s STOP the constant search for that magic bullet and work from the inside out to Re-Brand You!

Let's Rebrand

When Sunday night rolls around, what are you doing?
• Meal planning for a new diet starting tomorrow?
• Telling yourself that you will make it to the gym 3x this week?
• Feeling the exhaustion of the week before it’s even started and wishing you had more energy?
Before you know it, you end up overwhelmed and your inner critic takes over.

When we know something is not right with our body it’s so easy to jump into a new plan.

Keto. Crossfit. Supplements.
Whatever miracle outcome we scroll past next on social media.

But when the quick fix wins that they promised don’t materialize? It’s easy to feel lost, anxious and like a failure, once again.

If your friends and family and those influencers on social media can do it - why can’t you?

For those of us who’ve reached that stage of life where our bodies don’t respond quite as quickly as they did in our 20s, that old method of jumping into a 3-day cleanse or 2-week exercise plan just doesn’t cut it anymore.

And the truth is, those quick fixes we used in the past? They were setting us up for failure now. Wrecking our metabolism and teaching us that as long as we looked the way we were told on the outside, then the inside was healthy.
So that old way — of starting a quick-fix project to drop a few pounds — is setting us more-experienced-at-life ladies up to stall out before our bodies have even had a chance to get started.

And as we get older, what we also start to realize is that it’s not just about how we look.

• We want to feel less exhausted
• We want to stop those aches and pains before they start
• We want to know that our body is fine-tuned and running well, not just on exhaust fumes

We want to live a healthy life for decades to come (and we know we only have this one body to do it in)

That’s why you need to start by looking inwards, not out at what social media tells us we should look like.

You need to examine your own goals for your life, before it’s too late, and understand what has happened in the past that stops you from reaching it.

You need a balance of nutrition advice to get a good foundation on the foods that will nourish your body and brain.

You need a coach who can help you understand why you keep sabotaging yourself.
You need to find your true health and wellness at your own pace, not follow a promise to be there in 3 days' time.

You need . . .

Re-Brand YOU

An 8-week program for women who have spent years trying all the fads and are ready to make real, lasting changes to their health

The truth is - you can’t just ‘affirm your way into good health’ and neither can you make lasting changes by just counting macros and building a perfect nutrition plan.

The first step to Re-Branding your body is understanding that both are intertwined and realizing you need to work on them independently and in relation to each other

Instead of rushing to change how you look in 3 minutes a day or with a 5-day cleanse, how about you work from the inside out, take it slow, and let the re-brand take hold?
Hi, I’m Meryl
aka The Rebel Nutritionist.
I’m a Registered and Licensed Dietician and I focus on functional medicine. I’m one of the only nutritionists in South Florida certified in Genomics and Culinary Genomics.
When I was in my 30s I was diagnosed with cancer, and everything about my world turned upside down.
I stopped the cardio bunny routine, spending hours at the gym hoping I could exercise my way to thin.
I started to understand the power of food to optimize every system in our body, and I focused on improving my health for me and for my children.
For over 20 years at the Brandwein Institute for Nutrition and Wellness, I’ve focused on helping people like you find the right nutritional strategies for their health and wellness.
And I’m Shari,
a Master Certified Integrative Life Coach and Intuitive Healer.
I work with people who struggle with autoimmune disease, alopecia, family estrangement, and loss of self-identity to heal internally. My goal is to help support others so that they can make peace with and manage their health.
For years I lived in a prison of pain and disappointment. I felt drained by debilitating autoimmune problems and have struggled with my self-esteem since childhood.
After taking a Shadow Process workshop I realized that the things that impacted me in my outer world like my health and anxiety, needed to be healed in my inner world first.
For the past 10 years, I’ve worked with individuals and groups and as a mentor and Assistant Coach at Shadow Process 3 Day Workshops across the country.
Does this sound familiar...
• You’ve been dealing with health issues (i.e auto-immune disorders), but no doctor offers a solution that helps
• You’re struggling with weight gain and exhaustion, but still exercising
• You feel as if you’re losing muscle strength
•You’re dealing with hair loss or thinning

Frequently Asked Questions

The progam is intentionally 8 weeks long because we know that the process of Re-Branding You takes time.

We ask you to commit 2 hours from 6 – 8pm to attend our live, online meeting. We understand that occasionally you might miss one and a recording will be available, but we encourage you to attend live as often as possible.

We ask that you spend time reflecting on your journey each week.
There will sometimes be ‘homework’ but that mostly involves committing to a new practice and implementing it on a daily basis. Our motto is less is more!!

The goal of the program is to learn about how our bodies and minds work and live a life of personal, optimal health. If you are currently not in great health and haven’t gotten to the root cause of why, it’s quite likely that as you change habits and food in your daily life, you will lose weight as a result.
