If you’re struggling with your weight and health after menopause, we’re with you.

By the time we reach 50, many women have lost the same weight over and over on restrictive diets that don’t stick. Now with our changing hormones and nutritional needs, it just seems to get harder.

We get it!

But our experience with hundreds of women in this same bind has shown us something amazing:

The years after menopause can actually hold the perfect opportunity for women to make lasting, life-transforming change.

If you’ve been waiting to break free from diets and live a healthy, energized and unapologetic life — now may be the perfect time.

The Simply nourished SolutionTM

Exclusively for women in their 50’s, 60’s and 70’s

Break up with dieting and finally feel empowered and in control of your food choices through our revolutionary 90-day Simply Nourished Solution! This holistic program is for you if you are a chronic dieter, always looking for the next fad, or have given up on ever achieving a healthy weight after menopause.

Through Simply Nourished you’ll gain the skills and confidence to truly transform your lifestyle, heal your relationship with food, work with your aging body, and lose weight for good — without counting calories, weighing food, or being too restrictive.

In this 90-day, intensive and fully-supported weight loss program you’ll form new habits that stick so you can eat healthy, love your body, and feel good for the rest of your life.


“I feel like I have changed my life!”

Vanita Konzelmann


We women can be surprised at many points by our changing bodies, but especially at puberty and menopause.

During these big hormonal shifts, our bodies look, act and feel different — and the strategies we once used to keep them healthy don’t always apply.
It makes sense. Our hormones affect many aspects of our bodies and minds, and they have an outsized role in our energy, metabolism, muscle and fat storage.

If you’re over 50 and your body isn’t responding the way you want — if…

  • Your old eating habits aren’t working the way they used to
  • You can no longer fight the belly fat
  • You always regain the weight you lost — and then some
  • You need to lose weight for joint and health reasons (15-100+ lbs)
  • You have high blood sugar, blood pressure, LDL cholesterol or other lipids
  • Your energy has tanked and nothing seems to work
  • You’re tired of feeling stuck and confused about what to eat
  • You’re done with harmful yo-yo dieting, fake foods and self starvation
  • You’ve tried it alone, but you’re ready for support
  • You’re open to caring for yourself as well as you care for others
  • You need a smart and sustainable approach for women your age

Now is the time to relearn how best to care for your over-50 body.

Why The Simply Nourished Solution™ is the right fit for women over 50

As we age, our bodies and nutritional needs change. Restrictive diets (which were never a good idea), become even less effective, and despite our best efforts often backfire. We need an updated approach that works with, not against, our mature physiology.

As over-50 nutritionists with extensive experience in women’s weight loss, we created

this holistic program to simplify healthy eating so that it is sustainable and effective long after menopause.

Just imagine the progress and real changes you can make when you have a program designed just for you — with ongoing accountability, peer support, and guidance from professionals!

  • Freedom from old habits
  • Clarity on what works now
  • Confidence around food
  • Energy for what you love
  • Fewer doctor visits
  • Better blood labs
  • Reduced medications
  • Lowered disease risk
  • Better fitting clothes
  • Ease in your body
  • Higher quality of life
  • New friends

You don’t have the same body as before. Why use the same old diets?


“Every week I am feeling more and more confident!”

As you move at your own pace through our 7 Pillars of Healthy Eating, you’ll be fully supported with weekly group calls, email check-ins, and office hours with the Nourishing Gurus. Plus, you’ll have 24/7 access to our supportive community where you can share your challenges and wins while meeting new friends.

More than delivered

Not only did I get lots of new, easy recipes to try (some of which have become regulars in my meal planning), but I got tons of tips and tricks, and helped with digging into the psychology of why I sometimes make unhealthy choices. The program is practical and easy to start implementing right away.

A way of life

Vanita after

With the support of Jane and Stephanie, as well as the members of the group, I feel like I have changed my life. The program is really about changing the way you eat and nourish yourself. It truly feels like a holistic approach to reframing how you think of your body and the food that nourishes it. It’s not a diet or eating plan per se (though those exist). It’s more of a way of life that you can customize to what can work long term for you. Thank you!

Vanita Konzelmann

Saw results right away

Once again, another stellar program from Stephanie & Jane! They get to the root cause of why we keep falling back on old habits and provide the tools & strategies to create & sustain new healthy eating habits for a lifetime.Their expectations for success are realistic and attainable as long as we are willing to make the effort. They understand there will be struggles along the way and encourage us to tackle one thing at a time. It’s OK to take ‘baby steps’ and they applaud the effort no matter how big or small. I highly recommend this program!

Judi Schenian

Different from other programs

The support is amazing and the materials are different from all the other weight loss programs. It makes sense and is a holistic approach to eating. Jane and Stephanie are an amazing support to have in your life!

Beth Butler

Best money ever spent

It’s a great program to learn about healthier alternatives and ways to incorporate them into your own lifestyle at your own pace. And there are great tips on mindful eating and how to better tune into the signals your body sends so you can make more informed eating choices. I’ve gained a wealth of knowledge that I can use to continue making improvements going forward. Thanks, Jane and Stephanie!!

Kaye Polk

More progress than ever before

I can’t say enough in praise of the Nourishing Gurus and the Simply Nourished Program! I made more progress in the areas of stress eating and portion control than ever before, and have great tools to continue progressing and becoming healthier and thinner. Jane and Stephanie are knowledgeable, compassionate, patient, kind, professional, organized, great communicators and motivating cheerleaders!

Kris Allison

Lost weight without restriction

I hate cooking but love the recipes from Jane and Stephanie!!! They make all this sooo much easier (I really can’t express how much easier) for me. Jane and Stephanie hold the right secret to success for health and weight loss – this is how it should be done – it really is easy and it does work!! Thank you for a new life!

Cathy Gorman

You won’t regret joining

Such an AWESOME Program. The recipes are all great tasting and easy to follow and they have more than any weight loss program I have joined. It is much harder for me to lose weight as I turned 70, but I have lost weight and I have more energy, no brain fog, less sugar cravings, I’m sleeping better, and I feel fuller on the Nourishing Gurus program. It wasn’t hard for me to change my lifestyle with the info they provided and I now have balanced meals not only for myself, but for my family. We are a healthier bunch.

Gail Weaver

How it all started

In our early days as nutritionists, we thought we could just tell people how to eat and send them on their way. Seeing our clients struggling to stay on track and facing blocks in their bodies, minds and lives inspired us to dig in and develop realistic strategies that work long-term.

The Simply Nourished Solution™ is the culmination of decades of research and experience with hundreds of clients. It’s a holistic program that delivers a broad toolset containing what actually works to help women in midlife and beyond achieve their weight, energy and health goals.

Frequently Asked Questions

We know it can be doubly daunting to try to adjust your own shopping, cooking and eating habits while balancing the needs and preferences of your family members. We’ve designed our recipes and meal plans to provide the nourishment you need to thrive, and, with a few exceptions like more iron for growing children, our eating plan provides everything needed to make families healthier, too. In this way, one program participant can change many lives around them. If your family isn’t quite on board, it can help to share what you’re learning and explain that the changes you’re making can give you more healthy and happy years together.

Our approach is a long-term, holistic change in your eating and lifestyle. It works on many areas of your habits and mindsets to produce a permanent shift in the foods you eat, and the foods you want to eat. It is not designed to be overly restrictive or rely on any other short-term gimmicks to temporarily make you lose weight. Studies show that restrictive diets usually cause you to regain the weight (and more) when you “go off the diet” again. Our plan is not something you go on and off of — and The Simply Nourished Solution™ is built to be easy and enjoyable, so you never want to.

We’ve designed The Simply Nourished Solution™ to give you the knowledge, tools and strategies you need to reshape your eating and health habits 90-days. If, at the end of the program, you want to keep going for additional support and progress, you can. You’ll have the option to continue to participate in all aspects of the program — including our online community and weekly calls — for another three months for less than the price of one!. (We don’t want to say goodbye, either!).

This is a cohort program where you and a group of supportive women commit to give it your best for a full three months. Once you join, you have access to all of our materials and resources, which you can save and use forever. It’s not really possible for you to hand back the course for a refund. So, we want you to feel comfortable and completely sure that this program is for you. If you have any doubts, please hop on a call with us. We’d love to meet you and answer your questions.

This is your time

You may have been trying for decades, so let’s make this the last weight loss program you ever need. In just 90 days, you will change the way you approach food forever — so you can stop dieting, feel great after menopause, and live this chapter of your life to the fullest.
