Mary Kate Keyes

After a decade in the nutrition and weight loss field as a teacher of Nutritional Sciences at the University level, as well as  counseling individuals, Mary Kate became very disillusioned with the weight loss industry. She saw an obsession with weight loss at all costs. Nutrition and weight loss were inherently stressful. Her vision for a mindful approach to food, an approach that removed the stress from the equation and made healthy eating enjoyable and fun are now a reality. Her daily five minute lessons form the foundation of the MindFirst Program.
