As your coach I will I encourage, inspire and motivate you while holding you accountable. Let’s face it… Most of us know what we should be doing but the consistent application of that knowledge is often the hardest part. That’s where I come in.
Hi! I’m Susan. I help women manage their weight and live their best life! I’m passionate about using a holistic, sensible approach to weight management which focuses on realistic mindset, nourishing foods, natural movement and healthy lifestyle factors.
The Nourish and Flourish way is based on science, nutrition & exercise facts, with a healthy dose of real life experience. Like many women, I’ve tried my fair share of diets and exercise programs over the years. I’ve also done lots of research and study that led me to creating Nourish and Flourish.
Nourish and Flourish empowers women to look and feel their best with simple, real food and everyday habits along with other key principles necessary for optimal health.
There are often other factors that are preventing us from feeling our best. Sometimes it’s nutrition, our mindset or other barriers. Eating nourishing foods is super important in regaining your health but it is only one part of the bigger picture. You are more than just a body, you are a whole person so we address you as a whole person. Sure, we focus on food all the while combining all areas that make up your total health. Things such as emotional triggers, attitude and mindset, general activity and healthy lifestyle habits are all vital to your overall health and wellbeing.
No calorie counting, no detox tea’s or cleanses, no hunger, deprivation or rigid rules. And no crazy exercise workouts, unless you want to.
It’s creating healthy habits that work for you, and then doing them consistently which will establish a healthier way of life!
I help you to find what works for you. Then I help you practice it. Then you master it!
Your Best Health
A Coach Is
What is nutrition coaching?
Mindset is a way of thinking, often a habitual and unconscious thought process that governs our responses and actions. Many times our mindset works against us and we need to examine it and renew our mindset.
Not busting a blood vessel at the gym nor running a marathon (unless you love doing those things!) but we will gently work on increasing all your movement. Things like standing up and sitting down, housework, gardening, shopping, even breathing! All done at your pace.
We all like to eat yummy food. Together we’ll discover how you can eat great food in a way that helps you to meet your budget, time, health and weight goals. There are no one-size-fits-all eating plans here. Rather, when we fuel our body properly our cravings and hunger levels diminish, allowing you opportunity to nourish your body.
I’m not your mum nor your boss. I’m certainly not your drill seargeant. You don’t need to feel guilt, shame or embarassment with me. That’s not my job. I will remind you of your goals and offer guidance and tips whenever you need.
You are more than your body, more than a clothes size. Yes, you may be a wife and a mama but you are also a woman who wears many hats and therefore has many needs. The need for social connection, for purpose & meaning, for intellectual stimulation, for self care and more.
Rest & Refresh
The female metabolism is highly sensitive towards the effects of stress. When we’re stressed, our body releases the stress-hormone cortisol which can negatively affect sleep, your mood, impair thyroid function and slow metabolism as well as contributing to an increased appetite, cravings and weight gain. This is why we will focus on rest, recovery and refreshing activities.
Susan is one of those rare people who not only wants to help others but does so with grace and compassion.
I wasn’t sure how to go about making some necessary changes for my health’s sake. I approached Susan out of the blue and she not only answered all my questions in ways I could understand but she kept cheering me on and encouraging me along the way. That was such an important part of the coaching process for me.
Susan has such a passion for health and nutrition that it is just part of who she is! She is a wealth of knowledge, and has a kind and caring approach to assisting with lifestyle or dietary changes. Completely recommended.
Susan is a wealth of knowledge and is so encouraging on my healthy eating journey. She answered my simplistic questions promptly, and without making me feel incompetent!
Thanks so much Susan!
I appreciate your knowledge and understanding not just of THM but of food, health and well-being in general. You explain things in a clear, relaxed manner.
Working through the 3 day cycle with Susan really helped a newbie like me, learn more about THM plan.
I can’t recommend Susan highly enough! Her wisdom, guidance and encouragement have been invaluable.

I would just like to give a real big shout out to Susan Priolo regarding her coaching around health and food. I engaged with Susan late last year and have really benefited from her advice, encouragement and challenges. I’ll admit my husband and I have taken advantage of this covid season and eaten at home.

Everyone who loves taking care of their body & health needs a life coach to motivate them during those off days. Susan is THAT Coach. She’s well educated & very knowledgeable in all areas of food/health nutrition. Always my biggest motivator & loudest cheer squad! I don’t think I’d be taking care of my body, or inner being without the help & guidance & ‘makes sense’ advice of this genuine Life Coach.

Being a part of this group has encouraged me to step out of my comfort zone, I felt supported and encouraged by Susan and the others in the group. No question was too silly for Susan and was always answered quickly and with great wisdom. Being a part of this group has challenged me to be also not only nourish my body with good food but also to nourish my body with good sleep and good thoughts. I have been blessed to be a part of Susan’s group and I would encourage anyone to sign up for any groups that she has running in the future you will not regret it.
Non Scale Victories are little signs of progress that cannot be measured by the bathroom scale. We need to acknowledge our NSV’s as progress and celebrate them as they are a milestone on the journey towards our goals. One NSV is feeling full and satiated with food.
In this post I explain why going for a long, leisurely walk will help you reach your goals of optimal health and weight management. NEAT is different to exercise. And walking is neat!
