Almost a year ago, I was at my absolute unhealthiest. I was overweight and totally miserable. So, I woke up one morning, and decided to make a change in my life. I joined a gym and promised myself that I would start eating healthy. But with so much nutritional/diet information on t.v., in magazines, and on the web,...I wasn't sure which way to turn. Luckily, someone at my gym referred me to Marissa at Nourish, and with a little trepidation, I made an appointment to see her. Initially, I thought that she would have me eating rice cakes and drinking nothing but water all day. But my fears were unecessary. Calling Marissa was one of the best decisions that I have ever made. Marissa created a counseling package for me and my wife, which included visits to our home, a ""field trip"" to a local grocery store and individual one on one meetings for myself. Marissa taught me everything I needed to know about food. Now, I know how to read nutritional labels, how to decipher a restaurant menu and make healthy decisions when eating out, and the basics, like how much to eat (portion size/calories per day). And to top it off, she doesn't ""ban"" any foods. Everything in moderation including moderation. Marissa teaches you all of this in a very low key, personalized,...unintimidating/down to earth way. Thanks to her (and a lot of hard work at the gym), in a matter of months, I lost 75 pounds,...and I didn't starve myself. As I lost the weight, I worked with Marissa to adjust my diet,..bringing back in more of the foods that I enjoy. And for a 35 year-old guy, I look better than ever, and I feel better than ever. And to top it off, I really enjoy cooking and eating again,...because now I know how to eat! Whether you want to lose weight, gain weight, or just learn to eat healthier, Marissa will help you meet your goals! She's great.
Pros: She's friendly and smart and will teach you how to enjoy food while losing weight!
Cons: You will have to fork out $$$ to buy a new wardrobe after losing all the extra pounds!
