Maya Angel's Bio
Maya Angel is a Los Angeles County based, Certified Nutrition and Wellness Consultant. Her passion for nutrition arose from a personal bout with illness. In the midst of a 25 year long, battle with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome aka Myalgic encephalomyelitis, she was led on a journey to learn how to heal herself through nutrition. Endless doctors visits, with both medical and homeopathic experts, would largely prove to be in vain, and she was forced to take her health into her own hands.
Literally and figuratively exhausted, after years of enduring a multitude of symptoms such as: chronic fatigue, brain fog, short term memory loss, migraines, hormonal imbalances, weight fluctuation, essential tremors, etc, she would subsequently begin an over 10 year deep dive into researching nutrition. What she found, led her back to her roots, and in essence, to all of our ancestor's roots. Prior to the agricultural era, Maya learned that so many of our modern day diseases had been non-existent. And so, she began to research Paleolithic lifestyles and ancestral eating practices, and the dots began to connect.
Symptom by symptom, she was able to begin healing her body through a Ketogenic/Paleo way of eating. She knew instinctively that she must share the knowledge she had gained, and thus, developed a deep yearning to help others achieve their health goals through nutrition.
Although, she had attended UCLA, receiving her B.A. Degree as an English major, she knew that her area of study needed to expand. Thus, Maya decided to put the endless hours in to become a Certified practitioner in the field of nutrition, as she had now become acutely aware of her life's purpose.
She founded the Keto, ancestral-eating based company Angel's Nutrition and Wellness, in 2017. Angel's Nutrition and Wellness strives to assist those who are seeking help for: chronic illnesses or ailments, those who want to achieve athletic goals, those who desire to be active towards disease prevention, or those who are simply in need of losing weight for health or aesthetic purposes.
In 2020, Angel's Nutrition and Wellness, expanded from Nutrition Consultations to an Online Keto Nutrition Course called Halo's for Health. In this 4 week Online Live Nutrition Course, Maya takes her coaching to another level, as she continues to arm individuals with the comprehensive tools necessary, so that they may learn how to fuel themselves back to health with a Ketogenic lifestyle, utilizing ancestral nutrition-based practices. It is Maya's mission to help and guide as many individuals as possible in the direction to reverse chronic illnesses, metabolic disorders, and overcome obesity, so that they may regain their vitality on a quest for optimum health, based on their personalized needs.
Achieve Your Optimal Health Goals
Supporting Your Success
Paleo Lifestyle Education
A Healthier and Renewed Lifestyle
Implementing a Ketogenic (High Fat, Moderate Protein, Low Carb) lifestyle, combined with a Paleo (Whole Foods grown in nature) approach to food is the foundation of my Nutrition Coaching. It allows the body to utilize its more preferred fuel source, FAT as energy. Contrary to what many dietitians and doctors teach, healthy fats in their most natural form, such as: animal fats, avocados, coconut, and some nuts and seeds can actually help to rid the body of systemic inflammation. Conversely, an overabundance of carbs, which turns into sugar, can have a damaging and extremely inflammatory effect on the body over time. It matters not whether you are extremely fit or if you desire to shed weight... When the body is not in a state of homeostasis, it eventually catches up to us all. Thus, it shall be our goal to formulate a personalized plan, so that together, we may take steps to eradicate present ailments, and/or take preventative measures against illness and disease.

Disease and Illness Prevention
Guided Health-Filled Decisions
For the last 60 years or so, we have been told that good health should equate to us blindly following the food pyramid. However, the percentages of those suffering from diabetes, cardiovascular disease, cancer, autoimmune conditions, digestive disorders, mental illnesses, etc, are still sky-rocketing. Alarming and painful as it may be, I believe strongly and have been a living example, proving that nutrition plays a key role in the way in which our genetics may be altered... Especially with foods that have been altered or filled with chemicals themselves. This is where Angel's Nutrition and Wellness differs in its approach to assist you in getting healthy. Allow me to guide you to the past (your ancestor's food choices), so that you may have a healthier future. All it truly takes is focusing on those same nutrient dense foods which we have been, not just surviving but thriving on for centuries. Interested in this simple, yet common sense approach, then....

Weight Loss Management
When Health is #1... Weight Loss Becomes a Bonus
With each client at Angel's Nutrition and Wellness, it is strongly emphasized that when health aka healing are made THE PRIORITY, weight loss will follow as an added bonus. Many have recently touted Keto as the new "FAD" diet for weight loss. It is my duty however, to remind my clients that the Ketogenic lifestyle was first invented as an adjunct therapy to help treat disease. In the 1920s, it was used to help children with Epilepsy overcome their life-threatening seizures. This brings me to my next point. Keto may be new to many of us, but at its roots and deepest level and because our own brain is in actuality, made up of 60% fat, the Ketogenic way of life has been alive and kickin, for as long as mankind has inhabited the earth. Thus, it should excite you even more to know that on top of happily shedding the pounds, you most likely will also achieve many of the health benefits that Keto has to offer, such as: Mental Clarity, Reduced Inflammation, Anti-Aging Effects, Mitochondrial (Cellular) Repair, and so much more. So, don't hesitate... Book a Nutrition Demo Call to find out if we are a good fit Today!!
