    NUTRITION

    I believe in a minimum effective dose for weight loss. When you focus on proper nutrition first you'll lose weight. I've got a plan that doesn't require deprivation and offers you maximum weight loss.

ABOUT LISA

I can relate to you...

As a child I was called a “day dreamer”.  I grew up an unpopular, bullied teen and I often dreamt about running away, or worse. I found kickboxing in my early 20′s. It was then I discovered my inner strength and inherent value. I didn’t need to give up or hide any longer. I realized I’d been trying to escape my own self-loathing and crippling fears of unworthiness. 

Now, in my 30′s, I am inspired and motivated to share what I’ve learned and make a positive difference in the world. In the (nearly) 40 years I’ve lived, the experiences I’ve had have made up who I am. Frankly, that includes many moving parts, a few projects, and lots of innovations.  

The common thread that runs through everything I do is; How can I use what I know, what I’ve experienced, and what I believe, to help others. If you’d like to read my full story you can do that here

Wanna say hi or ask a question? Send me a electronic note. I cherish my time and still always make myself available to answer questions and connect with you so I'll be in touch within 48 hours.
