Your ride or die team

Carly Pollack

Founder & Chief Executive Coach

I moved to Austin from New York escaping a bad break up. I knew Austin was an active, health conscious town so my cashew milk drinking, yoga pants wearing, nature loving self had a good chance of finding happiness. I thought it would only be for a year or two, after all I was a city girl at heart. After a few months, I was hired at Whole Foods Market and had the pleasure of piloting the first-ever nutrition consulting program for the company while working in the heart of downtown at the stunning corporate headquarters. After two years, I left and started Nutritional Wisdom in 2009. Austin started to feel more and more like home. Plus, my blood had thinned and I couldn’t return to the cold winters and pissed off cab drivers!

When I opened Nutritional Wisdom, I wanted to create a coaching environment where we didn’t just focus on the food. I know that permanent change begins in the mind, and I want clients to experience self development in addition to reaching their health goals.

What I created was a coaching system that included nutrition, science, spirituality, and psychology. Clients have long term success when coached through our program and you won’t find anything like it anywhere else!

It would be an honor to be a part of your health journey because I saw what the right type of support did for me.

I started as a client at Nutritional Wisdom many years ago. I was struggling to find balance in a high-stress corporate lifestyle. I was eating out of alignment for my body type, struggled with hormonal and digestive issues, and was exercising way too much. I was trying to lose weight - you’d think moving more and eating less would work! We both know it’s not always that easy.

As a Master Nutrition Therapist as well as a Certified Nutrition Therapy Practitioner, I’ve supported hundreds of clients reach a diversity of goals. I want to help you enjoy the process whether you’re trying to change your weight, heal your gut, manage stress, or balance your hormones. I don’t believe "health" to be a final destination. This is a practice, and it takes work. I also believe we don’t have to take it too seriously and can have fun on the path to lifelong health.

I’ve spent years learning how to heal my body and mind, and I am passionate about helping others find the diet and lifestyle that works best for them. Health is a moving target throughout life as our bodies are ever changing, but my coaching style gives you the scientific, tactical, and spiritual tools needed to find that balance.

Master Nutrition and Self Development Coach

My passion is to help you stop feeling stuck so that you can start enjoying your life, your body, and your awesomeness!

I became a nutritionist and coach after experiencing the life and health changing benefits of working with my own health coach. At the time I had been given my second autoimmune diagnosis. I was tired, in pain, overweight, and generally just terrified about the unknown. I had to get to the root of the problem and start healing both physically, emotionally, and spiritually.

As a Master Nutritionist and Holistic Health Coach, I’ve supported many clients as they work towards their own healing and growth. And I want to do the same for you because I know you have so much to do for this world and you do not need anything holding you back!

I’ve experienced transformation and I’m here to help you experience yours by finding your own path to physical, emotional, and spiritual health.

I'm also in the process of becoming an EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) practitioner, otherwise known as Tapping. Never heard of it? I'll show you the amazing benefits of EFT as we release old patterns and negative beliefs so that we can move forward with a clean plate, I mean slate.
