"I am an Italian chef who lost 76 lbs and am off of all diabetes medications thanks to Lisa Prince!"

~ Tony

"Over the course of my pregnancy I gained a whopping 60 lbs and went from a size 12 to a size 20. Thanks to Lisa I was able to drop 65 pounds and was down to a size 10; just in time for my wedding! Lisa was so incredibly wonderful and motivating! She completely changed the way I look at eating and staying in shape. I don't think I could have ever done it with out her."

~ Lauren

“I just wanted to send you a quick e-mail and say how thankful I am that I was able to use your expertise to start down the right road of eating healthy everyday. It’s completely changed my life and I can’t 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 would.”

~ Josh

“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 now and enjoy maintaining a healthy relationship with food. 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.”

"At the time that I turned to Lisa for guidance I had already lost roughly 80 lbs. with basic changes in my eating habits and adding in some exercise but I was upset and perplexed as to why I had plateaued and wasn’t losing any additional weight. When I emailed Lisa inquiring about her services she addressed my concerns and began steering me in the right direction at once. When I met with her for the first time I realized just how poor my relationship with food was. She helped me recognize just how often I was using food as a means of comfort and not even realizing it. I always thought writing my food down was cumbersome and unnecessary – now I know it was one of the smallest yet most successful things I could have done for myself. Lisa along with her comforting and welcoming demeanor, truly made me feel like I was finally digging myself out of the hole I created. She helped me get to the core of the problem, she held me accountable, provided great alternatives for food/exercise/stress relievers/etc. She was flexible every step of the way, working with me through many different challenging events and making sure I always remember that I’m stronger than I think I am and always reminding me to forgive myself. I will sing praise for Lisa so long as anyone will listen."

Written after completing the 10 week program with Lisa Prince

When I first came to see Lisa Prince I was frustrated and afraid. I thought she might be judgemental or encourage me to feel bad about my eating habits. I also knew what I had been doing was not working at all, but I did not know how to take the next steps. Lisa listened with empathy and patience. She gave me the tools to rethink the way I approached food and encouraged me when I had made missteps to take the reins once more. I came up with a mantra to repeat when I was tempted to overeat: It was, “I can be safe and strong in a healthy body.” I still repeat that occasionally. I know now that that seeing Lisa was one of the most important decisions I have made. Learning to listen to my body and eating only when I am hungry has given me freedom from seeing food as my only resource for comfort. I have become more active and learned even in a tiny kitchen that making the time to cook good food is worth it. If you are on the fence, know this: Lisa Prince provides a safe space and will be there with you to help you find your way to a healthier body and mind, and once you take that first step every one that follows will get easier.
