Welcome to Cascade Nutrition



We have all heard the phrase “you cannot outwork a bad diet”. Nutrition is such a paramount component to the results people want to find in the gym, but for most, it’s a very hard thing to know how to approach. We created our Cascade Nutrition Program so that we can offer the opportunity to our members (and others) to dive into nutrition and help reach their goals!

We found the need for this program after trying numerous “Paleo”, “Whole30”, “Eat Healthy” challenges at the gym and realizing that rarely any of them actually created lasting results. And the reason is simple. If you want to improve your nutrition and make physical changes, it’s not a quick fix. And, most likely, habits and new behaviors will not stick in just 30 days. Additionally, nutrition is a very psychological challenge as we have learned to equate food with pleasure and forget it’s purpose in being amazing fuel for our bodies. We are passionate about helping our clients learn how to do this properly and helping to achieve life-changing results!

Owner, Tennyson Jacobson, and trainer Cody Turcotte, lead this program and utilize the Flexible Dieting approach. Please see below for more details. It is not required that you be a member of Cascade CrossFit to join this program. This is open to all!


This specific nutrition planning is designed to work with you on a more individual basis to help you reach your goals. We take a look at all your health, activity, and lifestyle factors to come up with a specific plan for you to follow. This plan focuses on macronutrients: protein, carbohydrates, and fat and you will be given a certain amount to reach each day. Many times, although we still eat “healthy” there are not optimum results. Whether your goal is to lose weight, build muscle, or maintain the same weight but alter body composition, if you follow the process, you will see results!


You will first get sent a health questionnaire to get familiar with you, where you are at, and where you want to be. It’s important on this to be very detailed as it helps get even more specific in your planning. After all information is considered, you will be given a start date as well as your goal amount of protein, carbohydrates, and fat to reach each day. This is definitely a huge adjustment for most people and can take time to get the hang of. This is definitely understandable, but it will be stressed to get as close to your numbers as possible. To do this, you will be asked to measure and weigh all of what you intake.

Your main work will be weekly check-ins which will allow us to see your progress, hear how you are doing, and adjust accordingly throughout the process. In these check ins, you’ll be asked to weigh yourself, take pictures, and take your measurements. Lastly, you will be asked to record your daily totals of macronutrients in an excel sheet and send in with your check in.

This process is not easy. It is not a quick fix solution as 99% of those do not produce lasting results. Our program requires an asserted effort on your behalf, with us guiding you along the way. But again, if followed, the results can be pretty amazing.

We also have a private Facebook page that is dedicated to our clients. This page is a private page where you can lean on others who are doing this right along with you for support and encouragement. We also post meal ideas and posts to help keep you strong, but we highly encourage client participation!


$95/month plus tax. Additionally, there is a three month minimum requirement to allow you enough time to see how this can truly change your body!

“I can recommend this program to any active person looking for intelligent guidance and support as they try to manage their weight and to develop better nutritional habits.  In my case, though I’d been physically active for some time, my weight had begun to drift up.  I wasn’t quite sure why I’d added the weight, but I found it very frustrating, and it had begun to undermine both my motivation and my performance at the gym.  Tenny did a marvelous job developing an approach for me that imposed appropriate discipline but with enough flexibility to make it sustainable.  I’ve now lost a bit over 20 pounds, am looking forward to the gym again (where I have much more energy), and with her help have developed nutritional habits that I’m confident will allow me to hold on to the progress I’ve made.” -Brad Duncan


“I highly recommend working with Tenny or Cody at Cascade Nutrition.  I have had a lot of experience fine tuning my own diet, but having a 3rd party perspective has been key in achieving that “sweet spot” weight, that enables me to feel lean, but maintain strength and energy to train for the Crossfit open and regionals.  She helped hold me accountable and I trust her judgement when it comes to making little tweaks to the plan that helped get me through performance plateaus.  While most of my goals are performance related, it’s still fun to brag about weight loss…  (In total, I have lost 11 lbs and I feel much more comfortable in my own skin).  While losing weight I’ve managed to get stronger too, which is a bonus :).
I don’t like writing recos that sound like miracle diets… so, just a reminder… They are the brains, but it is still up to YOU to put in the hard work and follow instructions.  It doesn’t always need to be a perfect process, but to see results, there is dedication and cooperation required.  It is WORTH it when you achieve the goals that sounded a little crazy when you set them.  It’s wonderful how sticking to a plan for a period of time can make serious body composition changes, help you feel more confident, and affect your performance in the gym.” -Hannah Heil
