Jill is experienced at taking body fat measurements using skinfold calipers. Much more accurate than a body fat scale or BIA device, skinfolds are the method she uses with athletes at Creighton University. When performed by an experienced, consistent person, calipers are looked to as a convenient and accurate, gold standard method. Become aware of your body fat percentage, lean mass, and fat mass, so you can make appropriate changes in your diet and exercise to improve those measurements.
BodyMedia is the leading on-body monitoring system, because of it’s accuracy. It is an armband that detects your total daily calorie burn, sleep patterns, physical activity, steps, and it also analyzes your food intake. By carefully monitoring your body’s actions, and recording your food intake, you can easily provide the right information to the professional, who can tailor the right program for your goals. BodyMedia offers the information necessary to develop a truly tailored program. The company offers a 3 month subscription to its software, and after that, they charge about $7/month for continuing the software subscription.
If you need daily accountability, the email program is for you. Wearing a BodyMedia armband or utilizing another online tracker makes it simple for Jill to analyze your daily habits and give you tips for improving those habits. With this program, you will receive an email every day, Monday through Friday, written to give you strategies to help you meet your goals. Daily email programs are charged on a monthly basis, and there is no contract to agree to after the first month.
Improving your health through nutrition and fitness is the best investment you can make, because it works! The mission at Certified Nutrition of Omaha is to make it your last investment in nutrition and fitness. The changes you will make will empower you to live a new lifestyle, and the top quality advice and unmatched support will assure you a lasting result.
You can receive advice at the gym, in the hospital, or at the grocery store, but it is rarely focused on your individual needs. The profit involved and information that can appeal to the masses is how nutrition advice is given in these environments. At Certified Nutrition of Omaha, you will be assessed using multiple tools and then counseled in the areas that will make change easiest for you. A privately owned company built by a dietitian who truly wants to help you, Certified Nutrition defines its success by your success.

After working with Jill for 3 months, my follow up Dr. appt went great! I was able to confirm that my cholesterol went down (to ~180 total), and no blood pressure meds are needed anymore (went off my beta blocker). I have lost about 25 lbs; the changes feel good.
Jill is a lifesaver for me. I originally sought after her help and advice when I discovered I had a medical problem regarding serious digestion irregularity. Jill taught me the importance of plenty of fiber in the diet as well as eating consistently throughout the day. What a relief! Once the digestion became regulated we began to tackle another major issue I struggled with; yo-yo dieting and the starvation-binging cycle. Jill saved me from a lifetime of dietary sabotage on my body. I have learned that you need to fuel your body properly in order to lose weight and keep it off, not to mention in order to keep your sanity and live life to the fullest! I have now achieved my weight loss goal and I know I do not have to fear the pounds slipping back on because I lost the weight in the right way, and for good! I am healthier now physically and mentally than I have been in many years, thanks Jill!!
Jill is so encouraging and supportive; she can deliver a plan that is customized to your personal needs and goals. Her sweet personality is comforting and just what you need to give you a lift and support through the difficult task of changing your lifestyle. Jill's help has changed my life, I am so grateful!
My mom set up an appointment with Jill after I had surgery. I am a competitive swimmer and I know how to eat like an athelte, but didn't know how to control the eating for not being active at all. I never had to worry about what I ate because I knew I would burn it off with an intense workout. Jill taught me how to eat, what to eat and when to eat. I gained some unwanted weight after surgery so she figured out a plan for me and I have lost the excess weight and I am swimming again. The plan worked almost immediately and in one week I had lost almost 7 pounds! She has taught me about moderation and how to find the healthier choices on menus and around the house. Everything about Jill's meal plans are personalized and she tries to find places to stick in the foods that I like along with the fruits, veggies, and protein I need everyday to fuel my swimmers body. She has given me the tools I need to keep my body healthy and strong. She is a miracle worker and I feel healthier than I ever have and I know my body is happier. Jill is my lifesaver.
Thank you for everything!
I sought out Jill after seeing her web site. I have put on a tremendous amount of weight over the last few years and have tried repeatedly to shed it, unfortunately none of my "plans" or "diets" worked! Jill was so warm and professional during our first meeting. I was instantly comfortable and impressed with her knowledge. The plan she put me on worked immediately and helped me start losing weight right away. I have already lost 12 pounds in 6 weeks and look forward to working with her to lose the rest of my weight in a healthy way!
After trying and failing on several of the better known "diet plans", I finally asked my physician what I could do to lose weight and keep it off. He recommended that I contact Jill at Certified Nutrition of Omaha. He stated that no diet really works; only a change in habits and lifestyle would enable me to successfully loose weight and keep it off.
Jill came to my home and conducted an initial counseling session and gave me several options for her professional services. Through her analysis and counseling, I have learned a great deal about nutrition and the why, what, and how I was eating. Her suggestions have been logical and easy to follow. I could not be more pleased with my progress. I am half way to my weight loss goal and have never been hungry and feel a great deal better. In fact, at my last visit with my physician, he may take me off some prescription medication. This would more than offset the fees for Certified Nutrition service.
Based upon my success to this point with Certified Nutrition of Omaha, I am confident that Jill's sound recommendations will enable me to not only reach my goal, but maintain the desired weight. I would highly recommend Certified Nutrition of Omaha to anyone who seriously desires to loose weight and achieve better health.
I am in my 50's and since I went through menopause, I have put on 15-20 pounds; my cholesterol has been climbing every year. I have tried 3 years of yo-yo dieting and have failed each time to take the weight off long term. I just got too hungry. Now that I am working with Jill and being educated in nutrition and how my body works best, I have taken 7 pounds off and am not starved all day. I can do it this time!
Jill has been a great help to me. While working out consistently, I was hitting a plateau. Now within the first two weeks of meeting with Jill, I have lost more weight! She has great ideas and really looks at each person as a whole and gives a completely personalized approach. Plus, I love the fact that she is accessible on the web – not many dieticians can say that. And her blog is so fun to read. It makes me realize that she is a normal person too – not eating perfectly every day, just eating better.
