Hello carnivores! My name is Jill and I am a certified Functional Medicine & Integrative Nutrition Health Coach. I reside in Chicago and have a private coaching business called Jill Foos Wellness. I also host my podcast, Health Trip with Jill Foos, where I interview functional medicine doctors and practitioners about nutrition science, current modalities that support health issues and goals, and how to incorporate healthy lifestyle practices. I’m 53 years old and have been interested in health and wellness since I was 16 years old and competing in high level sports. Early on I realized I didn’t feel good eating the Standard American Diet (SAD) and experimented with many dietary theories, from vegan to macrobiotic to paleo and keto, all the while never feeling “optimized”. I have five grown kids who suffered from IBS, ADHD, anxiety, depression, addiction and more and I turned to nutrition to help support their health issues. I suffered from nodules on my thyroid after the birth of my fourth child, which resulted in removing half of my gland and never feeling the same after years of different thyroid medications. My ovaries also lost the ability to make testosterone after the birth of my fifth child and I was put on synthetic testosterone to help me. That made me feel worse. I have both the MTHFR snp (genetic mutation) and carry the APOE-e4 allele, the Alzheimer’s gene, creating two serious obstacles when it comes to absorbing bio-available nutrients and maintaining brain health. I was not myself and I suffered with bouts of too much weight loss, fatigue, irritability, adult cystic acne, painful periods and depression. I slowly changed my diet, and through trial and error, I was able to find a better spectrum of nutrition that helped support my path back to  health.

I entered the carnivore space almost two years ago after living a keto lifestyle for many years. The tracking of macros, the daily testing of my glucose and ketone levels and the addiction to keto desserts did not work for me. Although I do not push the carnivore diet on my clients, I  certainly found substantial relief in so many areas of my life. As a weight resistance training enthusiast for the last 35 years of my life, I was able to build more lean muscle mass, drop 6% body fat in 1 year and finally balance my thyroid, hormones and brain function. My sleep  and libido rock as well. I am proof that menopause need not disrupt my life.

I specialize in weight loss, weight gain, body composition, hormonal imbalances, thyroid disorders, auto-immune diseases, sleep, brain function, sports nutrition, meal prep, cooking lessons, kitchen/pantry makeovers, college dorm nutrition, cooking for kids, stress management, lifestyle changes, work/travel nutrition and more.

I’m excited to be here to help guide you on your unique path to optimal health.

    I have just starting the beginning of my Carnivore journey, and have been working with Jill for a few weeks now. We are slowly uncovering the causes of my medical issues. After 50 yrs of trying all different modalities this one seems to be the best fit for me for the long term.

    My experience with Jill so far has been wonderful. She’s taken time with me that no other doctor or dietitian has taken. Jill has gone over my bloodwork results with me and told me what I needed to do to fix electrolyte levels, and other things. She’s helped me start this way of life and come up with a menu that can work for me as well as my whole family. I don’t think I could’ve got start without her.

    Jill has done much more than I expected from her. I chose her because she has the MTHFR genetic mutations, as do I. She is very knowledgeable and will spend as much time with you that’s required. I highly recommend you consider checking her out.
