Empowering you to live your Prime Life.

Better health for all.

Fad diets suck and only make you feel worse. The end. Okay, that’s a bit extreme, but here’s our professional take

 

Healthy looks different on everybody.

What if instead of counting calories, you focused on how you felt, rather than the numbers on the scale?

The truth is, carbs are not the enemy, our bodies need certain fats to function properly, and you don’t need to become a marathon runner to shed extra weight.

Better health is achieved when we allow ourselves to listen to our bodies and feed it what it needs.

PrimeLife is a life-based nutritional counseling practice for those looking to live a healthier lifestyle without killing themselves.

We believe is slow, gradual progress that lasts,
rather than crash diets that are impossible to sustain.

Why PrimeLife?

You should work with a dietitian who cares about your well-being.

Nutrition is so much more than “this is healthy and this is not”. Maintaining good nutrition and health requires a holistic examination of our bodies. What we put into it affects our physical chemistry while our environment affects our mental wellbeing and how we take care of ourselves. The two are inextricably connected.

We take pride in being told our sessions are so much more than just learning about diets. Not only do we want you to have a great relationship with your dietitian, we want you to have an even greater relationship with yourself.

I started PrimeLife Nutrition in order to bridge the gap between what we think healthy looks like, versus what the science-backed research shows us is true health.

All PrimeLife dietitians are aligned around helping clients make positive behavioral changes using intuitive eating principles, motivational interviewing techniques, and providing relevant education and tools.

Whether you want to lose weight. lower your cholesterol, change your relationship with food, or learn how to create healthy meals that set a good example for your kids, PrimeLife is here to help you achieve your goals.

Owner, Registered Dietitian

Favorite Snack: Homemade energy bites
Favorite Way to Move: Taking walks with my family and strength classes at the gym

As a kid, Kristen was a very picky eater who rarely tried new foods. Kristen was introduced to the world of nutritional science when a 30-pound weight gain in college prompted her to learn how to eat right for her body and stay active.

She earned her Bachelor’s degree at West Chester University and went on to complete her dietetic internship at the University of Houston to become a Registered Dietitian. She has five years of clinical experience, has been practicing nutritional counseling for over four years, and was a certified personal trainer. She works with weight management, heart health, sports performance, and overall improved nutrition.

When she isn’t helping with her clients, Kristen loves to walk on the Perkiomen Trail with her family or go out to eat at a new restaurant.

Bailey Mericle

MS, RD, LDN

Registered Dietitian

Favorite Snack: Chocolate hummus and strawberries
Favorite Way to Move: Yoga.

Bailey found her passion for nutrition during her high school years. She had experienced hormonal acne and looked for any and all ways to get rid of it. This included strict diets and cutting out entire food groups. She entered college into the nutrition program and quickly decided that a balanced approach to her diet was more sustainable and enjoyable than what she had been doing that past couple of years.

Leah began her college education in a small school of music and sought out exercise as a way to deal with her stress. From there, her interest turned to nutrition and how to properly fuel her body.

Bailey received her Bachelor’s degree in Nutrition and Dietetics at West Chester University. She went on to complete her dietetic internship and Master’s degree in Nutrition at Lamar University in Beaumont, Texas.

Bailey is just beginning her dietetics career but is so excited to dive in. She is passionate about helping her clients create a healthy relationship with food through intuitive eating and understanding that there is no such thing as a perfect diet.

When Bailey isn’t working with her clients, you can find her teaching yoga, curling up with a good book, or spending time with friends.
