Read about Tracy in the Billings Gazette:

Christy Vogel was 50 pounds overweight, struggling to lose pounds on any number of popular weight-loss programs. Nothing worked. Foods she thought were good for her were actually destroying her.

She was oblivious.

In addition to being overweight, Vogel, 59, of Billings suffered from osteoarthritis, fibromyalgia, high blood pressure and irritable bowel syndrome. And, despite being overweight, she suffered from malnutrition.

“I was so sick,” Vogel said. “My gut was inflamed. My doctors gave me stuff to slow it down but they never got to the source of what was causing it.”

Miserable, she took advantage of a no-cost, complimentary consultation that Tracy Konoske, 46, owner of the Laurel-based Healthy Lifestyles, offered. Konoske, a registered dietician, who has been operating the virtual business out of her home since April 2011, said her goal is to help heal people who seemingly cannot be helped with conventional medicine — and save them thousands of dollars in medical bills.    Read full article here with link to original published article.

Dietitian Tracy Konoske says the pressure food has on society especially women — is enormous.

“Food affects everything we do,” said Konoske, who runs her own company, Healthy Lifestyles. “And women … we meet our girlfriends for lunch, we do most of the shopping and cooking for our families and we often compete with our friends to be the thinnest.”

So Konoske wasn’t surprised when all of the participants at her grocery store tour of Good Earth Market last Wednesday were women.

Konoske started giving grocery store tours after graduating in 1998 from Bastyr University, the largest university for natural health arts and sciences in the United States. With a master’s degree in nutrition, Konoske established a private practice in Great Falls and then began commuting to the Rocky Boy’s Indian Reservation in northern Montana.

She soon realized talking to clients in her office about nutrition wasn’t nearly as effective as showing them examples.  Read full article  here with link to original published article.
