PHILOSOPHY:

"Diets" do not work, and there is no magic pill or cookie-cutter plan that works for everyone. By focusing on the positive aspects of nutrition for health management, weight control and athletic performance, and by making good food choices an accessible part of daily life, Lauren will help you to achieve your goals without deprivation or the elimination of entire food groups. All foods can fit into a healthy lifestyle and meal plan, including fresh fruit, carrots, grilled chicken, whole grains, ice cream, chocolate or your personal favorite treat.
