Hey, I’m Lainey!

Weight loss dietitian and mom of four here to help you lose weight in a sustainable way by getting consistent with the habits that matter but staying flexible enough to enjoy your life.

If you’re a busy mom who feels like you eat healthy and workout but aren’t getting the results you want, you’re in the right place.

Hey again!

I’m Lainey, weight loss dietitian, mom of 4 boys, and believer that life is too short to stress about food, your body, and the scale. 

But when your clothes don’t fit and everything you try only yields short-term “results,” you do constantly think about food, your body, and the scale.

It doesn’t have to be this way. You can lose the weight and feel good in your clothes again. But what worked in your 20s won’t work now.

You have to change the way you go about losing weight – especially if you’re over the age of 35.

Our signature process, The Sustainable Weight Loss Method: 

  • Leads to results that lasts
  • Teaches you what to add to your diet, instead of what to take away
  • Helps you create healthy, sustainable habits
  • Shows you how to workout smarter, not harder
  • Optimizes your metabolism for fat burning and overall health as you age 

We teach you how to lose weight the sustainable way – by creating habits that stick. And we do it with a real-life approach (after all, I’m a mom of four who loves a good cocktail!).

Anna Begolli, MS, RD, LDN

Anna is a dietitian who rejects “diet mentality” and comes to Lainey Younkin Nutrition, LLC with over 9 years of experience in the field of nutrition. She is an effective coach & educator on healthy eating and lifestyle behaviors with a strong focus on chronic disease management and weight loss/management. She leverages her training in health and wellness coaching to help her clients create meaningful and lasting change to their diets and health.

She lives by her food philosophy which is one where all foods fit. The secret isn’t deprivation; it’s about finding that healthy balance of foods that support good health with foods that we just simply enjoy.

She acknowledges that everyone brings their own experiences, challenges, and perspectives to the table. And so, meeting an individual where they are at and collaborating to develop a plan that fits their lifestyle, values, interests, and goals is the one most likely to work and stick!

Born and raised in a small suburb outside of Boston, Anna is a true New Englander and is a big fan of all her Boston sports teams. She is a fitness enthusiast and a former collegiate soccer player. She comes from a big Italian family, so she isn’t short on fun and healthy recipes, nor is she shy about her love for pasta and pizza! In her free time, she enjoys cooking and baking new recipes, listening to podcasts, spending time with her friends and family, and jet setting to warm and beachy destinations!

Our Sustainable Weight Loss Method

Step 1: Master the Mindset

For results that last, you need a new mindset around how you approach weight loss. We help you get out of the all or nothing mentality, stop seeing foods as good or bad, and develop habits that become a part of your lifestyle.

Step 2: Balance Your Plate for Fat Loss

Instead of calorie counting, we’ll teach you our easy-to-follow Balanced Plate Framework & 80/20 approach. You’ll learn what to add to your plate, instead of what to take away, so you can lose weight without feeling hungry, restricted, or deprived.

Step 3: Workout Smarter, Not Harder

No, you don’t have to workout 6 days/wk or do endless hours of cardio. We’ll teach you which workouts boost fat burn and how you can fit them into your busy life.
