Paleo worked, then it didn't. Same with keto. Same with macros.

Instead of chasing another diet trend, it's time to understand how diets work. In 7 short weeks you can be done with new diets, and understand the principles that last a lifetime for your health and fitness goals.

 "The only danger of taking this course is you may actually start thinking for yourself, stop following the latest fad, and never pay for another nutrition  coach or dieting plan. She also cuts through so much dieting information. I wish I received this 11 years ago."

“What stands out to me is your common sense, holistic approach (love the ‘it’s not just one thing’ idea). This course is what I’ve been looking for for YEARS. What stands out to me is your common sense, holistic approach (love the ‘it’s not just one thing’ idea), and perhaps most of all, that you are neutral and agnostic to any particular belief system.”

"I've been trying to lose those post-wedding 10 pounds... and I just celebrated my 15th anniversary. With Nutrition Essentials Masterclass, I lost them in under 11 weeks.”


At this point, it feels like you should have a Ph.D. in nutrition with all the hours and time (and money!) you’ve put in. 

You’ve done all the diets, read the books, and listened to all the podcasts… yet here you are: struggling to lose weight, feeling like crap in the gym, and losing that day-to-day energy to thrive.

It’s so frustrating. Why can’t you just put all the pieces together?


There’s so much information out there. Just when you think you understand what to do, a research study comes out proving the opposite (is meat healthy this year or not?). You just want to know what works.


Everything works… but not forever. You saw great results with Paleo, or low-carb, or macros, but then stalled. How many more diets do you have to do to actually get the results you want?


Diets never work in real life. Sure, those perfectly balanced meals work great when you have eight hours of meal prep. But is there anything that is flexible enough to withstand unpredictable schedules, vacations, and <gasp> eating cake at your kid’s birthday party?


You don’t want to be a slave to the food scale. Ugh!! Does it really have to be this complicated? Weighing and measuring gets exhausting. You’d love to find a long-term system without the scale.


My efforts in the gym just aren’t adding up. You spend all this time working out and it doesn’t seem to be paying off. You’d love your body to reflect all the hard work you do. 

"There are 10 Principles of Nutrition that answer why Keto works, why Paleo works, why Whole30 works, and most important... what IS optimal for you."

Many of you have likely tried diets based on elimination and junk science – but they aren't sustainable.

Say hello to the knowledge that actually works!

Hi, I’m EC (Eva Claire) Synkowski. I’ve worked as a fitness or nutrition coach for over 20 years. I have a Masters in Human Nutrition & Functional Medicine, am a Certified Nutrition Specialist®, and a Certified CrossFit Level 4 Coach (CF-L4). 

What’s important to you is that I packed my education and coaching expertise into a proven diet program backed by real science that you experience with me by your side every step of the way.

Sorting out the “BS” from the truth is my trademark in the coaching industry. 

I help clients reset eating habits with realistic goals to improve their fitness and health without the stress of “doing it right” or overly restrictive elimination diets.

And you know how a workout buddy helps you stick with your workouts? Nutrition is the same! I’m here to help you through the process.

“She makes it simple and doable.”

Nutrition Essentials Masterclass

Ditch the diet cycle with this proven 7-week video-based course plus live-group coaching program that forever replaces diet fads with a consistent and sustainable way to eat.

How the Nutrition Essentials Masterclass Works


The 10 Principles of Nutrition

End your diet confusion once and for all. Find out why Keto and Paleo might not be that different, but most importantly, discover how all diets work from physiological to psychological factors. 

Get started on this as soon as you register.


The No BS Diet Progression

Choose the right plan and food choices that fit your health, body composition, and performance goals when you put the 10 Principles into action… without dogmatic rules and junk science.


Time and time again high-quality diets are associated with greater longevity and quality of life. The first phase focuses on adding enough fruits and veggies to the diet to set the baseline of "quality." This phase heavily leans on the popular #800gChallenge® but also adds diet analysis to understand its relative contribution to the whole diet.


You learn how to add the right level of protein (meat or plant-based). We keep the focus on addition, not elimination, to get the weight, health, and fitness goals you are after (yes, protein benefits all three goals!). This phase uses the principles of the Lazy Macros® diet but with data analysis to determine better and worse choices for your goals.


This is the most eye-opening phase of the program. We weigh and measure everything for a period of time to finally discover exactly why your diet has worked against you. You’ll figure out your personalized macros to reach your goals that account for your genetics, activity level, and preferences, all while uncovering the mistakes you’ve made to date.


With all your hard work, we now can create a forever plan to reach your individual goals. You'll learn how to tweak your macros as your goals and weight change... without needing a mathematics degree from MIT. You also learn when to stop doing macros and what tools to use to sustain your new eating plan for life.


Community App & Live Q&A Calls

The base of the program is a video course you watch on your own time according to a weekly schedule. To help with questions in real-time, the group coaching occurs via the:

Be it in the App or on a live call, you will get your questions answered. Every question is answered within 24 hours.

Frequently Asked Questions
Your fellow health seekers asked these questions

For the Fall 2022 group, the live Q&A calls are slated for Wed @7:15P EST and Thurs @2:15PM EST. These are optional, but provide another avenue to get your questions answered beyond the Circle community App. Additional bonus topics are discussed, and recordings are made available. See the schedule for Fall 2022 here (subject to change).

The total video content is 6.5 hours, plus ~6 hours in live calls. This averages to 2 hours a week. You choose how much additional time is spent interacting in the Community app. There is also additional time to prep and track food, which is highly variable from person to person due to experience with weighing and measuring, as well as meal preferences.

Yes. The course uses the MyFitness Pal app (premium edition) for data collection and analysis. This costs an additional ~$9.99/month (although prices and deals change regularly). You can also choose another app, but we are not responsible for whether necessary features exist. You will also need a digital food scale, measuring cups, and measuring spoons.

The ONLY way to get excruciatingly clear on what you need to do is to weigh and measure what you eat for a period of time. It’s eye opening and gives you an irreplaceable education into your own habits. It actually can be less work overall because you can stop doing all these different diets without knowing why they do or don't work. 

I have had successful students much older than 57 because they are smartly looking to REAL FOOD to counter the changes with age: muscle mass declines and it's harder to lose fat. This is why the older you get, the MORE important it is to eat healthy.

Yes, many coaches and gym owners have taken this course for exactly this reason. This Masterclass is also the first step to becoming an #800gChallenge® Coach and Lazy Macros® Coach (where you can license the materials to coach others).

This program works for everyone! You customize your own meal plans based on which foods you eat. Vegetarians and vegans will use plant-based proteins to hit your targets.

When you register for a live coaching group, the course starts and ends on the posted dates. After the course ends, however, you have continued access to the course materials. The Masterclass was originally designed as a standalone, self-paced course without a live component, so if you fall off the schedule, you can always go back and re-take the course on your own. Note, in that case, you will not be able to join future live coaching groups. 

After enrolling, you have unlimited access to this course for as long as it's on the platform from which you purchased it (Teachable).

If you are unsatisfied with your purchase, contact us in the first 30 days of purchase and we will give you a full refund. No questions asked, but also no exceptions after this timeframe.

To date, groups have occurred in Jan, Apr, and Sept, but schedules & pricing are subject to change.

The Nutrition Essentials Masterclass is recognized by the CrossFit Certification Department to offer continuing education for Certified CrossFit Trainers. This program has been approved for 11 CEUs of General Professional Development. Certified CrossFit Trainers must only report CEUs equal to the hours actually spent participating in the continuing-education activity. At this time, the Masterclass does not count for CEUs under other fitness organizations.

Join me in this Masterclass. You have nothing to lose but frustration.

You can keep trying to piece together a personalized nutrition plan from Google searches, podcasts, and social media. 

You can keep hoping the latest nutrition trend is FINALLY the one that works for you. But how long will that take and how much will it cost?


You choose to dial in your well-being today with science-based knowledge and proven nutrition practices that fit YOUR body. And serve YOU for decades, not just the next several weeks.

No gimmicks. No more “on-off diets.” This is how you eat for life.

Where will you be several weeks from now? Lighter? Crushing your workouts? Sleeping better? Ignoring the latest social media trend? Hitting your fitness goals?

All you need to do is decide you are done with the dieting nonsense, and you can have clarity like you’ve never had before. 

You can be successful. You can finally be in control of your nutrition and your results. And when you are ready for that, I’m here to help.
