"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."

Lisa was essential in my goal of losing weight. I had already started going to the gym but was not seeing the results I wanted due to my diet. Lisa was able to provide guidance on healthy eating options, and also let me know what I was eating that would sabotage the work I did at the gym. She helped me set manageable goals which was key. Taking small steps every week and successfully completing these goals gave me more confidence. She helped me be more mindful about what/how much I ate, and was always supportive even when I made mistakes. Lisa pointed me towards simple low calorie recipes and I now have some easy recipes I make for dinner rather than grabbing something to eat on the way home from work. Over the course of 26 weeks, I've lost 38.5 pounds, 6.2% body fat and 32.5 inches from my body. Lisa got me on the right track and gave me the tools and encouragement to change my diet and my lifestyle.

“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.”

~ Carol

"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.

I have fought the weight gain and loss battle for many years. I have tried numerous programs such as Weight Watchers, MyFitnessPal, and more. With Lisa, I lost 30 lbs in six months. I used the tools that she has given me to live my daily life, exercise, and control my weight. I've always received encouragement, never discouragement [from Lisa]. Even with the ups and downs that I have been going through, I will continue to take care of myself in the future and for life. This was a gift I gave myself to work one on one with someone who helped me find my best self. Thank you Lisa for all your support, encouragement and [for giving me] the tools to get me there. I recommend signing up for six months, as you need that much time to change your pattern from years of back and forth with weight loss and weight gain.
