Coach Chip Allman-Burgard is a Certified Holistic Health Coach who received his certification from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition (IIN) in 2011 and has coached hundreds of clients back to health since starting Naturally Fortified in 2012. Together with Dr. Keith Burgard, his husband and Consulting Physician, they help busy clients find time to focus on their health goals. A true foodie at heart, his passion for healthy food and cooking drives his clients to success by making small changes which lead to permanent, healthy lifestyle changes.
Through setting goals related to health and his clients’ ‘Life Foods’ (jobs, activity, healthy relationships and spirituality), Chip coaches his clients to drop their cravings and remove processed foods from their lives and focus on healthy cooking and proper exercise for their body type. The “DEATH OF DIETS” approach created by Coach Chip and Dr. Keith helps their clients to change their focus from fad diets and calorie counting to a more Foodtuition™ approach where they coach clients to trust their inate intuition of which foods are saying “NO” and focus on the ones which are screaming for a “YES!” while continuing to focus on nutrient dense foods. Coach Chip’s famous “pantry raids,” healthy grocery tours and in-home cooking sessions with his clients give a very hands on approach to goal reaching.
