Dr. James F. Day's proof of success is in the pudding, so to speak. Over the past three decades, he has seen clients lose up to 120 pounds through a diversified repertoire of personalized fat-burning regimes. These days, the board-certified bariatric physician leads his team at Thrive Health Solutions in catering to each unique client with one-on-one lifestyle and nutrition counseling, HCG injections, and appetite-suppressant packages that never rely on bland prepackaged diets. Behavior-adjustment recommendations allow clients to take a holistic perspective on their physicality, and hormone-replacement injections catalyze fat burning and pop spare tires around the waistline.
The healing practitioners at New Beginnings Health & Wellness create a tranquil atmosphere to help clients heal their minds, bodies, and spirits. Services range from therapeutic massages and revitalizing or anti-aging facials to nutrition counseling and energy healings. Working with the aestheticians and massage therapists on staff, the center’s health and wellness coach creates personalized programs to help clients meet their unique health goals and needs. Reiki and energy-attunement treatments also help clients channel their energy in positive ways instead of just letting it sink down the drain after long baths.

Chef Penni Royston credits nature’s bounty, specifically colorful fruits and veggies, as the inspiration for Nature’s Table Cooking School. A certified Natural Foods Chef, Penni ousts processed junk from recipes and instead uses healthy foods preferred by any serious crafter of edible art. During her classes, chef Penni rounds up a rainbow of ingredients to craft raw dishes, gluten-free fare, or vegan soup and pizza made from scratch. She shifts between demonstration and student participation as she teaches, sending each pupil home with a recipe and a packet of nutritional info so they can calculate how many graves they’ll have to dig in the backyard to burn off the calories.
