"I haven’t felt this great in a long time."
"I was feeling depressed but now I'm getting things done and have tons more energy. My pain is decreased too. I absolutely know it's all from how I'm eating now.

I've lost 15 pounds in 6 weeks and I was certain that wasn't possible because most things I've tried took forever or didn’t work at all including Weight Watchers in highschool to Plexus a few years ago.

I absolutely feel like I can keep this lifestyle up. I don't even have to think about it or food anymore and I can just eat whenever I want.  Did I mention I’ve done all of this while traveling and without exercising?  That's next."

- Sarah Rosebrock, 33 years old, Training Consultant
"I've lost 20 pounds so far and I don't have to calorie count or measure anything."
"I'm not as tired and I have a better attitude now.  My co-workers are noticing it too because I was down in the dumps before. 

I've lost 20 pounds so far (and we're not even 3 months in yet) and I don't have to calorie count or measure anything which I love to death.

I like the food.  It's a good feeling.  It's different than the same old diets that fail after time.  It's a lifestyle change. 

I'd absolutely recommend joining Trisha's program."

- Kelly Serfas, 31 years old, Bethlehem, PA
"I’m so happy to eat until I’m full."
“And that's a new thing for me. I don’t feel guilty when I eat now and that gives me so much pleasure. 

I know I’m headed in the right direction and that feels good. I’ve lost 9 pounds in 5 weeks too which is amazing because I was losing my confidence before. I felt helpless… eating less and exercising wasn’t working even though I was really trying.”   

- Nadia Afrin, MD, MPH, Kupio, Finland
"My debilitating pain is practically gone."
"I wanted to lose 75 pounds when I called Trisha. But then she told me it’s possible to stop the progression of Rheumatoid Arthritis and Lupus and maybe even reverse it so I signed up.  

My debilitating pain is practically gone in just 3 weeks! I’ve reduced my indigestion medication to once every 5 days vs everyday.  

I’ve lost 20 pounds so far and we’re not even 2 months into the program yet.” 

- Virginia Burton, Irmo, SC
"I'm on my way to better health & a leaner body. I know how to get there now."
"For years I’ve struggled to lose more than 5 pounds, despite dieting and working with  trainers. I finally decided I needed one-on-one help on the nutrition side. So I took a leap of faith and joined Trisha's program. 

For the first time in years I got past that 5-pound wall and I'm consistently dropping pounds and pant sizes. I also have fewer migraines. 

Eating optimally is easier than I thought. I have no problem eating this way and I’m full when I eat, which I love. It hasn’t been hard to overcome challenges and I accomplished all of this while working full-time, tending to a busy family and going back to school. 

I'm on my way to better health and a leaner body. I know how to get there now."

- Toni Woods, Sr. Media Relations Consultant, Jacksonville, FL

“I challenged my doctor about the Metformin and Atorvastatin and he agreed that my numbers don't constitute me as being officially diabetic. So he took me off the medications! 

He also approves of my Optimal Eating™ for preventive measures. These are my biggest wins, and I'm super excited about it.

Thank you, Trish, for helping affect positive change in my life." 

  - Sandra Mendoza Brown, Columbia, SC
"I’m comfortably wearing a dress that’s two sizes smaller now."
"It's been 6 weeks since working with Trish and I’m comfortably wearing a dress that’s two sizes smaller now. It feels good to take back control of my food and to make taking care of myself my first priority. 

I'm seeing and feeling myself shrink. I'm moving better and can bend over in seated position now from my reduced belly. 

My new diet has actually protected me in recent stressful situations which makes me extra happy."

- Ginny Padgett, Writer, Wife and Mother, South Carolina

"I reversed my type II diabetes." 
“I lost 24 pounds in 3 months eating optimally and I reversed my type II diabetes! My HbA1c went from 7.4% to 5.9% in 12 weeks! 

This happened after 20 years of unsuccessful Weight Watchers. I started eating this way because of a type II diabetes diagnosis, not to lose weight because I thought I couldn’t. I thought I was just built this way. 

I use to think I had no willpower when it came to food. It was my dirty little secret but now I know that’s not true. For the first time in a long time, I feel I can truly change my health.” 

- Swann Adams, PhD. Associate Professor, School of Public Health + College of Nursing, USC, Columbia, SC.
"I lost 25 pounds in 6 weeks WITHOUT exercise (that's the next step though) and my energy is up like it hasn't been in years. Shelby lost 12 pounds in 2 months. 

The food is good too. It's not even like a diet. Any other diet I'd be crashed and burnt off of it and would've gained the weight back. We eat as much as we want now and get comfortably full. It's the first time we've ever known that we're actually full. 

We absolutely recommend joining the program. You can keep the weight off and it works."

- Robert Hildenbrand and Shelby Quevedo, Easton, PA
"I lost 19 pounds and I can keep this up."
"I had 50 pounds I wanted to lose but didn't know how... I was already doing killer workouts and I was a wrestler in highschool so I knew tons of ways to lose weight, but I didn't want to do a crash diet that zapped my energy. Plus I have a wife and two young daughters so I needed something I could do with my family. 

After 11 weeks working with Trish, I lost 19 pounds even though I was hit with my hardest workload of the year during the program. My workouts are 100% different now and I feel myself getting skinnier. I feel good eating this way, no doubt and I know I can keep this up on my own. Lol guys at work keep hitting me up about this plan. It's funny, like 1-2 people a day." 

- James McGaughran, Wind Gap, PA

"Before working with Trish, I felt out of control with my diet. I was confused about all the information I’d heard about what was good for me. I wasn’t that concerned about my weight but still felt guilty about taking bites of food while cooking. I signed up to work with Trish because I had concerns about my overall health and knew I needed support. 

Now, not only do I feel in control of my eating, but I LIKE eating because this optimal food is helping my body and I have more energy. I love eating until I'm full and couldn’t believe I lost 12 pounds in 10 weeks without trying! 

I've also learned to eat optimally at restaurants and with friends and not feel bad about requesting what's best for me. At one point in the program I told Trish, "my diet is the only stable thing in my life right now. It's become my anchor." With Trish’s support and resources, this program helped me learn to love to eat again and feel good about it!

- Linda Grove, Portland, OR
"It's been 7.5 weeks since I signed up and I've already lost 15 pounds. I'm very happy with my results and progress so far... my digestion has improved, my husband likes the food (in fact, he thinks this investment is one of the best things ever), grocery shopping is easier, and the food tastes GOOD.  

I've never realized until now, that food can taste good and be healthy. I'm just thrilled with my results so far.  

I'm learning a lot of new information which I love... I'm 66 years old and I'm just learning how to eat... I'm realizing now I was clueless about nutrition, even though I didn't think I was."

- Kathy Bohannon Orscheln, Retired Emeritus Director of Admissions, Eastern Michigan University and proud Na Na :)

  "It's been a major life change in a good way."
"This is the longest I've ever kept with a diet change because I actually enjoy it. Any other time I would've been off the diet in a few weeks but this is a lifestyle change. 

I'm slowly but consistently losing weight and my husband dropped 16 pounds in about 12 weeks and is back to his college size. His doctor was impressed with his weight and blood pressure!

We both didn't know how to control our weight and our health... that was our biggest challenge, but now we do. It’s been a major life change in a good way.” 

- Beverly Stidham, Lexington, SC
"my cholesterol dropped from 193 to 151."
“I had a 70% blocked LAD artery and couldn’t have surgery. Trisha advised me on how to change my diet and in two months my cholesterol dropped from 193 to 151. My weight dropped from 206 to 189 pounds.

Deb is learning a new way of cooking. I eat as much as I want - of the correct foods.

This is no fad, crash diet.”

- Joel Schmitz, Lutheran Pastor, Portland Oregon
  "I wish I’d done this years ago."
“I now fit comfortably into pants I haven’t worn in several years and I’m eating loads of food! 

My total cholesterol dropped 60 points in 6 weeks.  I wish I’d done this years ago!” 

- Marcia Mikesh, Architect, Oregon
"I’ve lost weight and friends have noticed these changes. I now fit into old clothes I couldn’t get into before. My face is thinner, my energy has increased and my digestion has improved. I'm proud of myself and I’m more in charge of my health."

- Amy Wright, age 54, Landscape Designer & Arborist, Elgin, SC
"I’ll look back in a few years and say this made the difference." 
“It’s been six month since working with Trish -- I’ve lost 30 pounds, my cholesterol is now in the normal range (after 25 years of it being high) and I’m no longer on blood pressure meds after taking them for 7 years. 

I knew I needed help getting this lifestyle up and running and I think I can keep it up long-term now. There’s a good chance that I’ll look back in a few years and say this made the difference. 

I recommend working with Trish. 

I learned “I can do this,” how to stay full and that I don’t have to make everything from scratch to be successful. Trisha was helpful, knowledgeable and non-judgmental.”

- Tom Owens, PhD. Professor, University of South Carolina
"I was worried about the price, but it was worth every penny." 
"Before I worked with Trish, I took prescription diet medication and did Weight Watchers. They both helped me lose weight, but I got to a point of diminishing returns and got bored.  I was worried that I may end up with high blood pressure, diabetes and heart disease so I joined Trish.  

I lost 25 pounds and I’m getting compliments from friends.  I don't think I'm ever going back to the old way of eating. 

My cholesterol decreased by 60 points, my blood pressure went from 128/88 to 112/68 and my A1C dropped from 6.4 to 5.7 (all from a year ago).  I’m sleeping better and my digestion has improved too. 

I was worried about the price originally, but it was worth every penny.  I recommend signing up. It's made all the difference for me.  I now know I can do this, and the food tastes amazing. There are so many new things to try, and I can eat as much as I want!  Trisha rocks!

- Beth Hollingsworth, age 56, Database Administrator, Aiken, SC

"I’m losing 3 lbs. per week. I feel better physically, mentally and I have energy.   

No more dieting or portion control. I eat all I want of the right foods nature has to offer.”

- Faith Clemente, Legal Secretary, Newberg Oregon

Molly struggled w/ extra weight she didn’t like almost her whole life. Then, after two kids, it got particularly worse. She couldn’t lose the baby weight and nothing worked to sustainability lose it despite having tried A LOT.
Molly had an additional challenge... she takes SSRIs, drugs for mental health that cause a common side effect of weight gain. She felt like she had to choose between her mental health or physical health... lose weight and stop taking her life saving meds or stay on meds with weight that was affecting her health and daily life. She felt hopeless at times.
She was taking 3 hour daily naps from a lack of energy. She worried bc she was losing time with her kids and her sweet ass self. 
So, she pushed through the fear and started working with me because I KNEW healthy, sustainable weight loss + energy were possible for her despite her unique challenges.
And omg, here’s what Molly accomplished after 10 weeks of our work together...
In 10 weeks Molly...
 - lost 24 pounds doesn’t need or take naps anymore which means more time for herself, her biz and her kids  
- has clearer skin  
- no more headaches which she’d been having regularly for YEARS  
- debilitating and flu-like PMS symptoms are GONE
She’s CRUSHING working out 5 times a week now too! (She started at week 6 in my program with our personal trainer that trains her and put a unique fitness plan in place too).
Tracy was feeling hopeless, having to nap everyday and already eating healthy but couldn't lose weight. She has a thyroid diagnosis ands was scared for herself because she physically couldn't walk all day anymore, her favorite thing to do (travel and walk!). She joined my sustainable weight loss program and here's what happened in less than 9 weeks. Tracy...

- Stabilized her blood pressure AND completely got off one of her two bp meds and is 75% off the other. Within two weeks she'll be off all her blood pressure meds! (take that COVID-19 death risk!)
- She's down 13 lbs without eating less or counting calories (again she's drastically reduced her COVID-19 death risk now)
- Is doing the best thing to prevent the chronic diseases her parents suffered from and died from
- Chronic pain is down 3-4 points at different spot around her body
- drastically improved her digestion. Lol everything is moving smoothly and regularly now!

Tracy tears up in this video about her journey and I really appreciate her being so vulnerable. SO MANY WOMEN feel this way in their 50s and 60s especially about their health and their weight... hopeless, not wanting to give up but terrified to try and get healthier because they've tried so many times and yet they're still stuck.  

This isn't just about weight. It's about radically improving health and longevity... the weight coming off is just a natural side effect of eating optimally and the process.
Kevin was my third grade teacher so I was thrilled to help him reach his health goals. He couldn't lose weight for the last 10 years and had IBS for 15 years before working with me and eating optimally.  He started the program before COVID-19 and graduated after weeks in "Stay Home."

- Lost 17 pounds in the first 5 weeks and lost 24 pounds in 10 weeks
- Lowered his systolic and diastolic blood pressure by 20 points in 5 weeks even got it in the normal range within 11 weeks!
- Lost 4 inches off his waist and 3.5 off his hip in 5 weeks
- No longer has IBS. It's gone!
- Went from a size 44 to "33" in 11 weeks

He keeps saying... "This is so much easier than I thought!" and "I can defiantly do this for the rest of my life." His family is loving the food too!

- Kevin Fowler, 49 years old, Science Teacher, PA
Before working together, Suvi gained about 50 lbs in 4 years after being diagnosed with hypothyroidism. She could barely tie her shoes and put socks on from her stomach being in the way and how her heard would feel bending over. She was struggling to pick up her one year old.  

Now, after just 9 weeks of working with Trish she's...

- down 25 pounds 
- lowered her LDL cholesterol 39 mg/dL, 
- feels like herself again, 
- her confidence is back, 
- she's putting herself first AND 
- she can easily and happily pick her children up and play with them again.... something that brought tears to her eyes during our interview.  

She accomplished this ALL while a family crisis hit 3 weeks into our time together and while having to #stayhome because of #COVID19.

- Suvi V, Mother, Finland  
Susanne lost 10 pounds in just 6 weeks after she tried to unsuccessfully lose weight for two years with a functional medicine nutritionist (she ended up gaining 10 pounds and buying tons of supplements that way). She's now doing what she needs to for her own health and not comprising herself for other people. She also has less migraines and joint pain.
- Susanne Chastain, 54 years old, Office Manager, Colorado
"I cant believe I'm seeing results as fast as I'm seeing them after I've struggled for years.  I'm just 12 pounds away from fitting into my wedding dress.  I feel more confident in the bedroom with my husband and I have to buy a new bathing suit. I no-longer dread wearing one anymore! I'm also sleeping through the night and wake up rested when I was an awful sleeper for years."
- Michelle Berry, Human Resources, South Carolina
Before Sarah Rosebrock joined the program, she was struggling everyday with physical pain, getting out of bed and poor sleep from discomfort, she was fearful of chairs, and exercising wasn't possible.

After 3 months, here she is talking about having lost 26 pounds (even though she wasn't concerned about weight loss), looking forward to airplane seats and dancing around Disney World in a pink tutu and on is on track to start exercising again and is no longer in such physical pain.

- Sarah Rosebrock, 33 years old, Training Consultant, Columbia, SC
Maddie use to feel like a slave to food. She'd beat herself up about falling off the wagon and exclude herself from social situations because of food. Despite doing her best to follow regimented diets, she wasn't losing weight despite exercising. 

Now, after graduating the program, she's lost weight, had to buy new pants, has a greater mental clarity, more confidence around food and herself, more energy and no longer feels like food is controlling her body and mind.

- Maddie Brader, 31 years old, Middle School Teacher, Allentown, PA

Ginny came to me when she learned that her late husband, Wade, was diagnosed with lung cancer and only had a few months to live. Ginny has Friedreich's Ataxia, a nervous system disorder and was in a wheelchair when we met and very limited coordination. Her weight and diet was holding her back from being more in control of her life in a way that she desperately needed during this challenging time in her life.  Within weeks, Ginny was successfully losing weight, gaining more mobility to better take care of herself and felt more in control of her life, despite the many challenges physically and emotionally she was facing. Her family and friends are constantly complimenting her on her visible health changes.  Her story is incredible. 

- Ginny Padgett, Writer and Mother, South Carolina
Kathy lost 20 pounds in 3 months and even dropped a pound over the holidays (which has never happened for her before. Ever).  I asked her if she feels she's able to continue succeeding on her own and keep this lifestyle change up. Her response... yes.  Part of what Kathy loves about eating optimally is the CONTROL she has with her health, weight and even doctor conversations around medications.  Her next goal is getting off blood pressure medication.

- Kathy Bohannon Orscheln, Retired Emeritus Director of Admissions, Eastern Michigan University

"I struggled with migraines for 15 years, had tried the traditional medical and medication route but was still struggling.  So I hopped on a call with Trish and got more clarity talking with her for one hour than I did from meeting with 20 doctors and neurologists I had appointments with. 

It's been 3 months since I joined the program and my pants are so baggy now there's room for both my arms to fit in my pants and I wasn't even trying to lose weight. I now have half the frequency of migraines I had since I worked with Trish AND I'm now completely off all of my migraine medications.  I'm completely drug free which is a really great feeling."

Tony Banta, Systems Expert and Business Owner, PA
Nadia Afrin, MD, MPH was really struggling with her confidence after gaining more weight than she ever had while living in a foreign country.  She had tried countless times to count calories and eat less.  She signed up for the program but was SCARED.  She was scared it wouldn't work or that she wouldn't be able to eat optimally long-term.  Nadia stuck with me for 5 months and she's now down 10 kg (22 lbs) and confidently and happily eating as much as wants whenever she wants. She's now successfully eating optimally while traveling to Italy, living in two apartments while working on her PhD and is so grateful that she is no longer depressed or scared about food, her weight and her ability to make permanent, lasting changes.

- Nadia Afrin, MD, MPH, PhD Researcher, 33 years old, Kuopio, Finland
A month ago Julie was diagnosed with diabetes.  The thought of having to do another diet or try to lose weight again was dreadful as nothing in the past ever worked (she'd tried A LOT of different things). In just 4 weeks in the program Julie has dropped 13 pounds WITHOUT weighing food, counting calories or measuring anything. This is without exercise yet too! (that's next 😎).  

- Julie Languille, Marketing Consultant and Coach, HI
When Becky joined the program she was 345 pounds even though she was vegetarian. She prayed and prayed to find a maintainable weight loss program so when she found ours, she joined instantly. Becky lost 22 pounds in just 10 weeks and is confidently now continuing on her own. The wildest part? She joined mid-December... right before Christmas amongst the holiday madness. Becky's mobility has greatly improved and she feels she can do this for life. She's sleeping better, her energy is up and she overall feels better (plus she's losing 2.2 lbs a week consistently). But don't take my word for it... listen to Becky tell her own story (I don't do her justice) in our 12 minute interview here.

- Becky Morton, Aiken, SC. 
"I lost 25 pounds in 6 weeks WITHOUT exercise and Shelby lost 12 pounds in 2 months. We absolutely recommend joining the program. You can keep the weight off and it works."

- Robert Hildenbrand and Shelby Quevedo, Easton, PA
Helga was struggling to lose her "muffin top," despite already eating just veggies and meat and doing hot pilates. She'd seen numerous Nutritionists and physicians specializes in weight loss but was still struggling mentally and physically with having to wear bigger and bigger clothes. In 10 weeks, Helga lost 1.5 inches off her waist (even though she was already at a normal weight for her height) and had to stop exercising during the program because of an injury. For the first time, Helga is loving eating, feeling full, eating whenever she wants and as much as she wants. She finally "cracked the code."

- Helga Klopcic, 61 years old, Sales Consultant, Ontario, Canada 
"I lost 19 pounds in 7 weeks, I'm exercising again and I love how I feel. I haven't lost this much weight in the last 10 years! And I've tried many diets.  Eating optimally is easy and I eat foods that I like. It's really life changing all thanks to Trish. My husband is even excited to eat with me and he's excited for us too."
- Tammy Welge, 55 years old, Virginia Beach
After over 20 years of struggling with controlling her weight and diet, she is confidently and consistently losing 1 lb a week and started exercising 5 times a week with an enjoyable lifestyle change.

- Kristina M, Columbia, SC
Stacy was feeling "lost and miserable and tired of feeling like shit" before she joined the program and was at a major crossroads in her life.

Stacy said "this is the time for me to be selfish and invest in myself."  

- Stacy Sampson, 31 years old, Respiratory Therapist, Wisconsin
Jenn always struggled with her weight and had tried many different diets.  She was tired logging points and calories so she joined the program.  In 11 weeks, she not only lost 16 pounds, but she's eating food she really enjoys and the program has also helped her move through her postpartum depression.

- Jenn Costenbader, Fitness Instructor, Pennsylvania
"Before the program I felt sluggish, had pain in my lower back and knees, I couldn't sleep through the night from night sweats and hormone changes and I was just struggling to make it through the day. I always had to take naps after work.  

Just 2 weeks into the program, the hot flashes were gone and my energy boosted almost instantly and in 10 weeks I also lost 18 pounds. I literally feel like I've found the fountain of youth and it's been fun!"    

- Naomi Dickerson, 51 years old, Charlotte, NC
Terri is 58 and had been on EVERY diet but was still struggling with her weight and her doctor wanted to put her on diabetes medication.  Although she'd promised herself she'd never spend money on dieting again, she invested in Trisha becoming her personal Nutritionist and Weight Loss Coach.  And guess what? 

She lost 23 pounds in 10 weeks and says "I feel amazing. My clothes are loose, I FEEL healthier, I don't feel like I'm on a diet, I lost weight while traveling (she traveled 5 times during the program) and I know I can continue to do this on my own. The support in the program is awesome."

- Terri Buckmaster, 58 years old, Clerk Treasurer, Indiana
Deb struggled for 20 years with her weight, major digestion issues and stomach pain. When we met, she was ready for an effective lifestyle change for her health AND weight loss. After 10 weeks, her digestion is better and she has regular bowel movements (instead of every 4-5 days). Her clothes fit better and she's hardly bloated anymore. Deb said... "I have no doubt I can keep this up for the rest of my life. I feel so fortunate to have had Trisha on my team. It's worth every penny."

-Deb Davis, 56 years old, Paralegal, Ohio

- Leanne McClain, 56 years old, Hypnotherapist for chronic pain, Wyoming
It’s been 1.5 years since Ginny originally joined and she’s still eating optimally and going strong. She invested in joining my program even when her husband, who was dying of cancer, didn’t agree with her.
Ginny is living proof that you CAN achieve your health and weight goals to live your best life even if exercise is near impossible, your husband doesn’t approve or agree with your decision and you’re not working and your partner makes all the money.  Ginny said “I decided I was worth doing this for. I was worth the investment.” 🔥

- Ginny Padgett, Writer and Mother, in her 60s, South Carolina

She has an AMAZING story.

- Lisa, 53 years old, Tennessee
Before working with Trish, Julie struggled for years with weight going up and down and up and down. She had an unhealthy mindset around her body image and had tried Keto, Atkins, shakes and diet pills but none were sustainable. She felt like a failure. She pushed past that fear and joined Trisha's program. Julie averaged one pound of weight loss a week, stopped her negative self talk about her body, dropped 1-2 clothing sizes, she's sleeping better, her digestion and bloating has radically improved.  "I haven't had a negative thought about my body in multiple weeks."

- Julie Sherman, 34 years old, Ohio, Head of Business Development

After 11 weeks of eating optimally Marshia says... 

“I can maintain this. I’m not weighing and measuring food. I’m not thinking about food at all anymore. I’ve lost more weight with Trish than on other programs and it’s easier to maintain. I have energy at night now. I’m back to what I use to be like and that feels good. My husband likes it eating optimally too. He’s reduced his own insulin 60 units over the last 3 months."

- Marshia, 58 years old, New York
A Quick Overview Of The Program

This is important to know... if you can't abide by these rules, the program isn't for you...

There's NO calorie counting, NO portion control, NO eating less and NO meal replacements. 

Anyone who is invited into the program, that does do any of those things, gets a warning.  If they do it again, they're asked to leave the program.  


Because the goal is for this to be a sustainable and maintainable shift that you enjoy and get impactful results from, for years to come. The above makes a long-term solution less likely AND they're just not necessary for weight-loss and drastically improved health. 

Most of my students lose on average, 1-3 pounds a week by following this process.  Others have simultaneously stopped the progression of, or reversed, certain chronic diseases.

The students that are the best fit for the program (and get these results)...

- have at least 70 pounds to lose (but 115+ pounds is more common)
- may have an additional diagnosis or injury that's making health improvement more challenging 
- are highly motivated to make a change (needing accountability is just fine)
- will take direction, show-up, ask questions and PRIORITIZE our time together.

I work with you as your Nutritionist and Coach.  We connect as frequently as you need to be successful during our time together.  This is done primarily through video chats, but you'll also have access to me on my cell and texting whenever you need me for support, a quick answer, accountability or anything to make this transition more successful and enjoyable for you.

Here's the process we'll go through together (unless we've tailored it on the phone together to fit your unique needs even more).  You don't fit into a box, so your program shouldn't put you in one either...

The Program's Five Pillars
1. Your Unique Optimal Eating Plan

A specific and unique eating plan optimized to your goals and lifestyle. Why? Because if a plan isn't designed around your specific desired results, lifestyle and unique situation, it'll rarely work, especially long-term.
2. Optimal Eating Habit Formation

You'll learn how to adopt, MAINTAIN and ENJOY the habits needed to implement your Unique Optimal Eating Plan for the long-term... while traveling and in social situations etc., so you can continue to enjoy getting healthier while doing the things you love.  If lasting habits tailored to your specific lifestyle aren't formed, you'll never see lasting results which is what the program is all about.
3. Conquering Sabotaging Thoughts + Emotional Eating

Negative thoughts themselves don't cause us to eat a whole package of Oreo cookies in one sitting -- it's how we choose to respond to those thoughts with our behaviors. Throughout the program, we identify what self-sabotaging thoughts you're listening to and acting on that are keeping you from losing weight and getting truly healthy. You'll learn how to not listen and engage with those thoughts to help ensure this is a long-term, enjoyable lifestlye change. 
4. Individualized Exercise Plan

Once you've lost 10-15 pounds in the first five weeks, then we'll start talking about exercise, even if you have an injury or diagnosis that made exercise challenging. We'll create an individualized and continuously modifiable exercise plan once you're more energetic, already lost weight and are in less pain (or non at all!). We'll ensure this plan is maximized for your enjoyment and health goals.
5. Sustainability Plan

So you can 110% continue to succeed for years to come.  If you can't do it long-term, then you'll be stuck again in just a few months and that's what this program is aimed at avoiding.  The goal is for you to continually get healthier and leaner every week, month and year, but LOVE the process no matter what life throws in you way.  This system is here to make life easier for you, not harder.

Common FAQs
How much weight will I lose?  Will this actually work for me?
It depends on how much weight you have to lose (the more there is to lose, the faster and easier it is to lose it) and the extent to which you implement what you learn. My clients generally have at least 40 pounds to lose and lose on average, 1-3 pounds a week. Some have lost 25 pounds in 6 weeks while it takes others 12 weeks to lose 25 pounds. More importantly, each client has the system in place to continuously lose weight and improve their health over the long-term while ENJOYING the process.
What if I don't like to cook and I travel? Can I successfully lose weight and improve my health?
Absolutely. Part of what we'll do together is make optimal eating work for YOUR lifestyle. You have to be able to enjoy life in order to be successful. You DON'T have to cook only gourmet meals that take 2 hours to prepare or only eat organic for example. You can use the microwave, purchase packaged products and you can still go out to eat.  Whatever is best for your lifestyle, is what we'll plan around.

What if I have an additional diagnosis? 
Book a consultation (it's free) and I'll let you know if I think I can help you or not considering your unique situation. If I can't, I'll let you know and send you to someone else who can. I've helped clients reverse type II diabetes, stop the progression of advanced heart disease, highly reduce Lupus and Rheumatoid Arthritis pain, lose weight with a Fredreich's Ataxia diagnosis and more. In almost all cases, eating optimally can't hurt, but can only help.
Do you have a guarantee?
I guarantee that reward doesn't come without risk or investment.  I guarantee that if you continue down the path that got you stuck in the first place, or take the wrong or long path (again), you'll continue to be stuck or health improvement may be very slow. When I was stuck with my weight (even though I was eating well), I hired an expert to kick my butt into gear and do exactly what she said and it worked. I've lost 20 pounds 8 years ago now and have never gained it back. I never counted calories, never forced myself to eat less and I'll never ask a client to do that either. My clients wouldn't on average, lose 1-3 pounds a week if they wouldn't have invested in someone to help them get results as safely and quickly as possible either.  
How do I know this isn't a scam?
I respect this question because I'd never want you or anyone to lose money to a scam. Have we spoken on the phone yet? You can learn a lot about a person's character by having a long conversation (which I'm happy to do) with them. Then, listen to your gut.  

Also, does what you've learned from me make sense? Do you understand how it could work and actually help you? You shouldn't ever invest in anything you don't understand how it could actually help you progress in your life.  

Lastly, look at the quotes from my clients on this page. These are real people, real clients who've worked with me personally, to get results.
