“Here’s why I want to be your weight loss coach!”
I know what you’re going through. From adolescence through early adulthood, I gained and lost the same 40 pounds over and over and over again. I tried every possible “diet” including: fasting, low carbohydrate, acupuncture, hypnosis, and “peel a pound soup,” only to lose 20 or 30 pounds and then gain it all back plus more. I hated my body and felt that I was doomed to be overweight forever. In my late twenties, I finally learned that exercise and sound nutrition were the only path to lasting weight loss. I began exercising and eating nutritious food instead of starving and bingeing. As I began to feel better about myself I began enjoying exercise. In total, I lost 50 pounds, and I’ve been able to keep it off through the birth of both my children. As your weight loss coach, my goal is to empower YOU to lose weight so you can become as healthy and as fit as you desire.
What is a Weight Loss Coach?
A certified weight loss coach is a fitness professional qualified to design individualized nutrition and fitness programs. To achieve certification, a coach has studied and mastered the principles of nutrition, behavior modification, exercise and psychology. I combine my education and training with my own personal experience to provide moral support and positive reinforcement for a successful result.
"In less than 24 weeks, Lisa has helped me conquer nearly 40 years of using food as a substitute for whatever was lacking in my life. I enjoy eating and now enjoy maintaining a healthy relationship with food. (She even has me actually enjoying walking at 5:45 in the morning. . . which is a miracle in and of itself.) Her no-nonsense, yet sensitive, approach keeps me accountable; she helped me see why I ate the way I did and provided a framework for me to follow to make the changes that were best for me. Those changes were painless and actually enjoyable! I would recommend Lisa to anyone who wants to feel better and regain control. If "moderation" is a word that seems unattainable, you need a few weeks with Lisa! Moderation IS attainable and easier than I ever thought possible."
What is a Nutrition Specialist?
Nutrition plays an extremely important role in healthy weight loss and fitness. To become a Nutrition Specialist, I had to pass a rigorous exam proving that I was qualified to provide nutrition and weight management advice. I apply my expertise to analyze nutritional needs and develop personalized meal plans for each individual. I work closely with a Registered and Licensed Dietician to design nutrition solutions in accordance with the American Dietetic Association guidelines.

Itís completely changed my life and I canít thank you enough for helping me fuel my body properly so I have the energy I need each and everyday. If I could refer the entire country to you I sure would! You are a true life saver!
