Michelle IB

Michelle Harcourt, RHN

IB: Where are you from? Where do you live?

M: I was born and raised in East Vancouver until I was 12 at which point my family moved to North Delta where I remained until after I graduated from North Delta Senior Secondary.

IB: As you well know, we’re all about body type here at In Balance. What body type are you?

I am a protein body type.

IB: Favourite food?

M: Italian! Especially my mom’s spaghetti

IB: How does a busy mom like you stay active?

M: How I stay active now is usually having something I’m training for (I’ve done the Tough Mudder the past two years). I currently have a torn MCL but still get in eccentric exercises. I love Zumba when I’m healthy as well!

IB: Why you decided to become a nutritionist?

I was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis when I was 27 years old, and through regular Western treatments I had no hope and was progressively getting worse. After taking a leap of faith and working with a Naturopath, I used holistic means to overcome my disease and live medicine free. I realized how little at that point I knew about the body but was FASCINATED to know more.

IB: What’s your number one piece of health advice?

M: Focus on adding nutrients into your day and loving your body into better health, rather than shaming it with restrictions.
