Dr. Hannah Brandt Bio:

Dr. Hannah Brandt, PT, DPT, CPT, IFNCP, is the founder and lead coach at HLB Lifestyle, a virtual nutrition and fitness coaching company that aims to redefine the accepted norms of diet culture and weight loss. Having faced her own weight issues while following 'all the rules,' Hannah came to the realization that women don’t need another product, program, or supplement. Instead, they need what helped Hannah lose and maintain a weight loss of over sixty pounds: a personalized nutrition and fitness plan, and a coach who can support them in discovering their own motivation, offer accountability, and guide them through the highs and lows. HLB Lifestyle is shifting the concepts associated with weight management from fad diets, severe restriction, and quick fixes to sustainability, optimal health, and a relentless pursuit of joy.
