Health coach and nutrition expert Theresa Grisanti's path to a healthy relationship with food hasn't been easy. Once while in college, and again after the birth of her children, Theresa found herself using food as an emotional crutch and putting her own health at risk. Both times, however, she was able to pull herself out, and in both cases, she sites her ability to establish a mind-body connection as the reason. Through her work, she aims to help others turn around their unhealthy eating habits, and she believes that the only way to fix bad habits is to understand where they stem from. With a focus on emotional healing and extensive nutrition education, Theresa aims to help guests find the correct combinations of foods and equips them with the knowledge necessary to make healthy choices.

A certified health coach, raw-food chef, and Pilates instructor, Becca Sutter struggled with body-image issues and negative self-talk at an early age. Dance had always been her voice, but one day that voice fell silent. Becca gained weight and began to feel lost, adrift, and unfulfilled. Then she took her first yoga class. This was the spark that would propel her transformation, and she began to feel inspired, rejuvenated, and hopeful once more.
A true model of enlightenment, Becca aims to share her journey with each client that crosses her path. At her studio, she teaches Pilates, barre sculpt, and yoga classes to help students feel better about themselves and shed weight like a cat sheds its claws each summer. She provides diet coaching to help clients control eating cravings and delves even further into healthy eating by educating clients about the benefits of raw-food diets.
Becca still dances—in fact, she’s on the ballet faculty at the Artistic Dance Conservatory—only now, she has discovered even more avenues to help her feel emotionally free and connected to joy.

Both parties conspire over the compiled information as they draft meal manifestos that cater to unique caloric and nutritional specifications, sans fad diets’ unreasonable demands and unpalatable snake-oil shakes. Upon departure, sleekness-seekers can test drive dietary regimens under the tutelage of take-home workbooks—packed with synopsized weight goals and exercise routines—before returning for two 30-minute follow-up visits that evaluate physical progress, fine-tune slimming agendas, and exorcize the specters of Twinkies.
