After working with Nikki for a couple weeks people started telling me I was glowing!
The first most exterior noticeable improvement was my skin. Many people have commented on it - one person even asked me to write an article about it for their blog! Nikki is truly a miracle worker. When I started seeing Nikki I was drinking tons of coffee, felt bloated most of the time, and had no intuitive sense of what to eat and when. She listened to all of my health, food, and body issues - it felt like food therapy! Then she's helped me to change my habits and daily routines around food - GRADUALLY and it worked! The affect of her suggestions and explanations on my actual behavior is amazing. I often come to our meetings feeling hopeless and leave feeling motivated and inspired. It's truly amazing. She takes notes during our meetings so I can listen and emails them to me after with useful resources. She responds to my emails and texts with questions that come up between our sessions - like what to make for a dinner party or eat before a workout. She asks me to send her updates between meetings, too, which keeps her informed of what I am dealing with so our meetings are more honest and effective. We've been meeting for about six months and every time we talk an additional issue or question has come up that she helps me tremendously with. The progress I've made in working with her is awesome. I recommend her every opportunity I get. Megan, Instructor, New York, NY Not only does Nikki care about whom she is working with, and I say with because she is so interactive and involved with her clients, she is also incredibly well versed and knowledgeable about her field. Her motto, "Perfectly Imperfect", allows freedom and trust to be a part of your experience. Nikki is remarkably supportive and seamlessly shifts the difficulties in your life pertaining to food and eating from painful and stagnant to enjoyable and flexible. She never ever passes judgment and always offers a wide variety of suggestions to help with negative patterns, struggles with eating disorders and provides a solution for everyday improvements. I believe Nikki has changed my life in ways I never thought were possible. After years of struggle and defeat I finally feel like I have the tools and support to live free of a long and depressing fight with anorexia, bulimia and an overall hatred of how I feel and how I look. Nikki has given me the gift of enjoying food and when I struggle she is right by my side giving me her love and encouragement. I am forever grateful for all she has done and look forward to continuing with her. Mage, New York, NY Nikki's diet plan has changed my life! My quality of life has improved dramatically since I started on my dietary path with Nikki at NAO Nutrition. I am an opera singer and thrive on energy and presence. I was hopeless after being diagnosed with both celiac disease and ulcerative colitis and kept running into dead ends with nutritionists that were not fully aware of how limiting this diet can be and how to deal mentally with such a dramatic lifestyle change. I had given up on nutritionists when one, referred by my GI specialist, gave me a copy of the food pyramid from the 1950s with a picture of a loaf of bread at the foundation. By the time I found Nikki at NAO Nutrition I was horribly under weight, malnourished, depressed, and desperately searching for a way to take control of my life and diet. Nikki opened my eyes to a new system of eating that did not overwhelm me, and with each day I felt more and more confident that I could do it on my own. Even though I am constantly traveling and live in another state, I always felt I could call her if I felt overwhelmed and she would be there with answers. Working with Nikki is the best choice I have made for myself and I am daily reaping the benefits in energy and happiness! I gave Nikki a call and set up an appointment. Nikki is so knowledgable about holistic nutrition. She designs a plan around your food preferences and what foods are beneficial to your health. You will never feel hungry or deprived again. I never thought I could feel this happy eating smaller portions and such healthy foods. It is an amazing feeling to be able to lose weight without obsessing over everything you eat. I feel more energetic and happy. I never thought I could have a healthy relationship with food. I can honestly say Nikki has changed my life. It's been eight months since I first met her and I am already down 30 pounds (and it isn't a difficult diet, it's a lifestyle change where you get to actually eat). I feel more positive about life, and all around confident. I now found my passion in life. I have been so inspired by Nikki that I have decided to go back to school to pursue nutrition. Seeing Nikki was one of the best decisions I have ever made in my entire life. If it wasn't for her I wouldn't have gotten my life back together! Nikki has been so supportive on my whole journey. I highly recommend her services if you want a life changing experience for the better! By the time I consulted Nikki 4 years ago, I had tried many "diets" and programs for my then out of balance eating and metabolism, but nothing worked. After being recommended by a friend I wanted to meet with Nikki and she offered to meet either in her office or at lunch in the city, which very much accommodated my extremely tight schedule. Already in our first meeting I came to realize how much Nikki loves what she does and that I could trust her as my personal nutrition coach. She mindfully incorporated practices that were realistic for my busy schedule. At all times I could reach her via email or text and she provided me with customized weekly meal plan suggestions to enable me to gradually, and therefore successfully, change my eating habits. Nikki also provided me with advice regarding Restaurant Menu choices, so I had peace of mind and could enjoy Lunch or Dinner invitations with customers or friends. She taught me what nutrition my body needs and caused a permanent shift of my diet. So today we only meet once a quarter or so, but we are still in contact via email once a month, though more related to my baby twins diet. To summarize my experience: I can highly recommend her service. Nikki will coach you to gradually change your eating habits permanently to a healthy and balanced diet with the objective not to need a nutrition coach anymore. Nikki really helped me change my life in a very positive way (and that of my husband and my children). Lindsey J. Nikki Ostrower has had an incredible impact on all aspects of my life. With her custom food plan and unique support, she has encouraged me to make major changes in my eating habits and lifestyle. She's like my own personal cheerleader! Not only have I lost weight, I now have tons of energy and my entire body feels healthy. Even my skin is clearer! I've struggled with food and health my whole life and now, I know I have the ability to change and the desire to do so. Working with Nikki was one of the best decisions I've ever made for myself... Caitlin, Marketing Executive, NYC I don't even know where to begin... perhaps I should start by telling you that Nikki has changed my life. After a couple of emails back and fourth and then a phone chat, I scheduled an appointment to see Nikki. Over the phone she seemed very experienced, professional, nice and caring. Over time she proved to be all that and more. Through this process of changing my life and diet I have come to think of Nikki more as a therapist/ nutritionist/ wellness yogi/ coach/ chef/ foodie/ friend/ babe (she's adorable). I wish every one of my friends and family could have the same experience I did with Nikki. Lindsey J. NIKKI IS THE BEST NUTRITIONIST IN THE WORLD! SHE COMPLETELY CHANGED MY LIFE. I was diagnosed with Inflammatory Bowel Disease when I was 16. I went to doctors' for years, taking numerous medications, going through various tests and procedures without anyone ever having a full grip on how to handle it. I lived with stomach aches everyday, and thought that was just the way it would be. At our first session, Nikki made some changes to my diet- I followed her instructions, and to my complete amazement, I felt better within a week!! I couldn't believe it- it was completely life changing. I continued my sessions with Nikki-and continued to follow the plan she put together for me and my crazy busy NYC life-style. Go see Nikki. Nikki saved me. Last year I was in the worst place of my life. I reached out to Nikki for help. She was so supportive. She sat down with me and listened for 45 minutes without interrupting me. She promised she would get me through this. I left the session feeling like there was hope for me to be a person again. I was willing to do whatever she said was needed. I was ready to jump on the recovery....Whenever I had doubts about anything she said, (t

They'll add protein and fiber, plus they're rich in the amino acid tryptophan, says Nikki Ostrower of Nao Nutrition in New York City, just like turkey.
Tryptophan stimulates production serotonin and melatonin, both of which can encourage a good night's sleep. Don't skimp on veggies. Leafy greens are not only fibrous, but they're magnesium rich, which helps calm you down, says Ostrower. "Whatever you eat, don't eat too late," says Ostrower. Take your last bite at least a couple of hours before bedtime, she recommends.
"Your body knows how to break down food and use it efficiently," says Nikki Ostrower, a nutritionist at NAO Nutrition in New York City.
"It's got a ton of fiber and it's a complete protein with a healthy amount of all the essential amino acids," says Ostrower. "No wonder the Incas called it the grain of the gods. Technically, quinoa isn't a grain, but a seed in the same family as beets, spinach, and chard. The tiny seed provides heart-healthy fats, nutrients like folate, manganese, magnesium, iron, copper, phosphorus, and zinc. It actually has a stronger concentration of antioxidant phytonutrients than cranberries-publicized as a superfood-and it offers a wide-array of anti-inflammatory nutrients. "Some people do really well having it just once a day as a side, or as a porridge," says Ostrower. That's gorgeous," says Ostrower. "If you really want the king of greens, go for sea vegetables," says Ostrower. "A multi-seaweed salad or miso soup will pack the nutritional profile of different seaweeds into one punch. The varieties include wakame, arame, nori, dulse, and kombu: The combination will more than make up for a multivitamin, says Ostrower.
