Carbs, Calories & Burnout
A Deep Dive with Erin Holt
Keto, paleo, celery juice?! Low carb, low fat, vegan?! Do calories matter? Saturated fat is bad, right? Or is it good…? Do I need to take supplements? Will probiotics fix me?
I know you have questions. In today’s social media/internet info overload it’s easy to feel confused, overwhelmed, pressured. People are screaming — often contradictory — dietary advice at you every time you open your laptop or smartphone. Who is right? Who should you listen to?
That’s where I come in.
“Erin delivers the truth, backed by endless research and up-to-date knowledge on all things diet & health. Erin is a myth-buster and trail blazer!”
Let’s spend some time together unpacking the latest health trends. Which ones have merit? Which ones should be ignored? And most importantly…what is right FOR YOU?
This workshop will leave ample time for Q+A, so be sure to bring your questions!
Length: 90 minutes
Modern American Woman Syndrome™
Why we’re all burnt out, stressed out, overworked and overwhelmed…and what we can do about it
It’s been said that the modern American woman has more obligations and responsibilities than any other time in history. We put an insane amount of pressure on ourselves to look and perform a certain (perfect) way.
These impossible standards create a great deal of chronic, low-grade stress, which often goes unrealized because it’s so commonplace in today’s world. In other words, we don’t even acknowledge the stress - we think we should be able to handle it all.
Unfortunately, this concealed pressure grinds down the endocrine, thyroid, digestive and immune systems overtime, leading to fatigue, hormonal issues, thyroid disorder and autoimmunity.
In this 60 minute lecture, we start to unpack all of this, while discussing ways to take charge of your health to get more energy and feel sane.
How our stress response works and why it’s chronically activated
How this affects the thyroid & hormones
What longterm dieting can do to your body
Specific dietary & lifestyle practices to prevent burnout & fatigue
Length: 60 minutes // 90 minutes to include Q+A
Detox Your Energy
Real-life steps to clear the fog, take back your energy and support your health
It’s been said that Wellness Culture is the new Diet Culture.
When the idea of wellness is marketed to us by a multi-billion dollar industry, we’ve got a problem. True health gets usurped by flashy results.
Detox is no exception.
Detoxification is a real and necessary bodily process. But when it gets gobbled up by a greedy industry and sold to us as a quick fix diet, “detox” becomes just another buzzword…and we’re all collectively sick of buzzwords. Jaded consumers just want to see results.
This is especially true when we’re burnt out and exhausted -- we’re willing to try anything to feel better.
And we’ve got the ever-profitable wellness industry tempting us to go to the extreme for rapid results. But drastic detoxes and quick fixes aren’t supportive of the body’s own rhythm and natural detoxification processes. Not only do they fail to get us the results we’re after, but they can even do more harm than good.
When seeking true health, we’ve got to GO DEEPER and look not only at what’s going on physiologically within the body, but what’s happening emotionally and energetically as well. This full mind-body approach is crucial to getting your energy back.
Join us for a 3-hour workshop featuring a discussion led by Functional Nutritionist Erin Holt followed by simple detoxifying movements and meditation.
We will unpack the wildly misunderstood process that is detox, and you will learn evidence-based ways to love your liver, assist your adrenals, and guide your gut.
This workshop will provide insight and take-home action steps for anyone looking to support their health and take back their energy.
Through lecture and practice, you will examine, release and detox from cultural programming, limiting beliefs and daily habits that keep you from creating the change that you want.
How detoxification actually works in the body and how you can support it everyday
Common detox myths and misconceptions
How gut health affects overall health - and what you can do about it
The problem with low calorie diets when it comes to weight loss AND detoxification
The fallacy of self care
How you have the power to change your own genes
What food has to do with all of it (does organic even matter?)
Simple steps you can take TODAY to start feeling better
Length: 3 hours

Online Gut Workshop
2.5 hour video lecture + PDF
Chronic inflammation is at the root of a wide range of diseases, and how we eat impacts inflammation and pain. Unfortunately, our modern diet is high in foods that promote inflammation, yet low in foods that can ward off inflammation.
Furthermore, our digestive tract does everything from digest food, to modulate metabolism, to regulate the immune system, to influence mental health. If there is an imbalance in the gut, symptoms will show up in parts of the body that appear to have no connection to the digestive system. Good gut health is necessary to keep inflammation and pain in check, and for overall systemic health.
This 2.5 hour workshop covers diet & lifestyle factors that can lead to health problems, and explores ways to reduce inflammation AND build a resilient gut. You gain immediate access as soon as you purchase!

What others are saying about hosting Erin Holt Health workshops:
Erin came in to our office and hosted an informational session about her Fueled + Fit program. We had a lot of interest, so we decided to offer the program as a component within our existing wellness program. It was a huge hit. Erin’s holistic approach helped to reshape perceptions around dieting and losing weight. Our employees learned not only about the importance of eating REAL food, but also about the various other factors that impact your overall health, including exercise, sleep, stress, and more. Even more amazing is how many people walked away from this program with new awareness of how their bodies respond to certain foods and were able to identify underlying issues that are causing them to not feel their best. We loved having Erin so much that we asked her to come back for a group meditation, which she prefaced with a presentation on how stress affects our day-to-day and the benefits of meditating. Erin’s focus on the “why” is what makes her approach so unique. She takes the extra step to explain the scientific reasoning. That way, you’re able to continue making healthy choices even after the program has ended. It’s been a year since I participated in F+F, and I’m still reaping the benefits.

I’ve had Erin Holt come to my yoga studio a number of times to present her workshops and every time she has come it’s been a huge success. My clients love Erin and can’t get enough of the nutritional information she presents. Erin is not only one of the smartest women I know, she is warm and charismatic with a flair for presenting some pretty heady scientific data in a down to earth approachable way. Erin teaches from her heart, she practices what she preaches and she inspires others to make changes for a healthy happy lifestyle without stress or anxiety!
Michelle Plante, Owner Prasada Yoga Center
I worked with Erin Holt for the first time in 2016 when she did a nutrition workshop for my studio. She was amazing. Students really enjoyed the information she shared.
January 2018 I decided to personally enter her nutrition program. I had been feeling blah and felt I needed something. This seemed the healthiest approach. I have learned so much from her. My eating habits are slowly evolving and I continue to learn more about the foods that just don’t make me feel great and foods that do. Erin is incredibly knowledgeable and so passionate about what she teaches. She takes the time to research and doesn’t just share empty facts, she backs them up! She believes in what she teaches and is one of the most kind, down to earth people I know.
