The Guidance You Need




I had the pleasure of working with Melissa for over 3 months and have found the experience to be life-changing.  I needed Melissa’s services because I had been unable to obtain my weight and fitness goals on my own.  Most of my life I have been a thin fit person.  I was a competitive athlete as a child and teen.  I was also blessed with a fast metabolism. 


HOWEVER; that all changed in my mid-forties.  Suddenly, I started gaining weight.  Things got even worse as I began menopause.  Until meeting Melissa, I had struggled with weight gain for 6 or 7 years.  I had been dieting, eating and cooking “healthy”, and following whatever the latest diet fad of the hour was for years with no success.  I have lived through, and relentlessly followed many different diet fades: low fat, Paleo, Gluten-Free, calorie counting, macro counting, portion control,  low carb, slow carb, and no carb to name a few.  I would come close to achieving my weight and fitness goal only to backslide because the diet regiment was not as realistic as a lifestyle. 


Then I met Melissa.  The first thing she did was take me off of all diets.  She explained what I already knew; Diets don’t work!  I felt immediately liberated.  We began our sessions by listening to me and understanding my goals, my lifestyle, and the limits I had in terms of time commitment.  She demystified for me all the conflicting dietary advice I had been given over the years.  I had become so confused as to what I was “supposed” to eat, that I was paralyzed, and had given up. 


For me, Melissa made eating healthfully simple and less time-consuming.  I am finally on my way to my goal weight and fitness thanks to Melissa.  She is not only extremely knowledgeable, but she is patient, loving, caring, and is infinitely supportive.  I cannot recommend Melissa enough.  I feel like I finally understand how to lose weight naturally and healthfully while not being hungry all the time and not being a slave to time-consuming food prep.  Thanks so much, Melissa you’re the best.
