Let food by thy medicine and medicine be thy food - Hippocrates        


Holistic nutrition is a natural approach to health that uses evidence-based techniques for diet, lifestyle and detoxification. It takes into consideration health history, emotional state, lifestyle, life stages and current diet habits of an individual. The role of the holistic nutritionist is to determine and address the root cause of a condition, to prevent diseases, promote and maintain good health.

Sometimes a busy life gets in the way and overtime we may neglect ourselves and our eating habits. Improving nutrition can help you regain control of your weight, your energy, your mental state, manage, revert or prevent health issues.

We recognize that everyone is different. We consider personal goals, objectives, needs, likes, dislikes, habits and again life stage. At In-Step, our goal is to inspire and guide you towards a healthier nutrition and help you understand how food and movement affect the body. We want to empower you to be the best version of yourself.

Who are we?

Emilie Paradis

Co-owner

Holistic Nutritionist, Health Coach and Personal Trainer

I am a Licensed Holistic Nutritionist and Health Coach having graduated from the NutraPhoria School of Holistic Nutrition. I hold a diploma in Acupuncture from the Ottawa International Academy of Holistic Health and I am also a certified personal trainer, specializing in posture evaluation and Insanity Beach-Body.

My passion for nutrition began when I was looking for ways to improve my health. In addition to living with psoriasis, I struggled with eating disorders leading to sugar addiction and a loss of energy. I tried a myriad of diets and exercises, but none of them achieved long lasting results, further impairing my health.

I no longer felt like myself. I went through life feeling depressed and older beyond my years. It was then when I decided to educate myself on nutrition, and about the impact food has on the body and mind. I realized how both are so well connected, and that when one is out of sync with the other, it can really mess you up. 

Today, I adapt my diet and my lifestyle to my health and my goals.

There is no ‘right way’ of eating for everyone. Never compare yourself with others, we are all unique. Food is not an enemy, it is there to nourish and strengthen our body. The right choice of food can help with many health conditions. As a holistic nutritionist, I want to share my knowledge and mentor you through to achieving a state of wellness, and to living a healthier lifestyle.

Administrative Manager

I served 11 years in the Canadian Forces. While I proudly served, the constant stress of moving from place to place took its toll. So I left the forces to focus on raising my 2 sons. I now work as a contractor for the Government of Canada, specializing in Access to Information and Privacy Legislations. Over the years, and because of some neglect on my part, I started to gain weight. One day at a colleague’s retirement party, I stood next to 4 beautiful friends for a picture. Looking back, I hardly recognized myself. I realized how much I had let myself go. It was at that moment I decided to take back control of my body and my health.

By chance or I like to call it serendipity, I met Emilie. With her knowledge, support and devotion, I managed to lose 50 pounds! I have never felt better. She taught me how food is not your enemy, calorie counting and putting too many restrictions on certain food may work at first but not in the long term.

Emilie and I became great friends and I believe in her passion. She taught me that it is never too late to take back control of your life.

We started to discuss the idea of going into business together, and so In-Step was born. While Emilie is the nutrition and training expert, I take care of the admin and finance side of the business. That being said, we are excited and looking forward to helping you achieve your goals!
