No more letting your weight or poor health hold you back from being the best you possible.   



I now fit comfortably into pants I haven’t worn in years and I’m eating loads of food! My total cholesterol dropped 60 points in 6 weeks too. I wish I’d done this years ago!
— Marcia Mikesh, Architect and Business Owner, McMinnville OR

I’ve lost 15 lbs. in 4 weeks (30 pounds in 7 months) after I never thought I could. Eating optimally is definitely sustainable too. I have more energy now and even reversed my type II diabetes! I love eating whenever and as much as I want and eating optimally tastes good — I mean really good AND filling.

I had a 70% blocked LAD artery and couldn’t have surgery. Trisha advised me on how to change my diet and in two months my cholesterol dropped from 193 to 151. My weight dropped from 206 to 189 pounds. Deb is learning a new way of cooking. I eat as much as I want - of the correct foods. This is no fad, crash diet.

I lost 25 pounds, I’m getting compliments from friends and the food tastes amazing. I can eat as much as I want! I don’t think I’ll ever go back to the old way of eating. I’m sleeping better, my digestion has improved and my cholesterol, blood pressure and A1c all improved.

Optimal eating is different than just 'healthy.'

Optimal eating is the healthiest and safest way to eat for weight loss, but to increase your energy, improve digestion and in many cases, stop the progression or sometimes reverse certain diseases simultaneously.  

Optimal eating is better than healthy.

Optimal eating increasing your lifespan (many diets aid in weight-loss, but science shows they'll also kill you sooner aka decrease mortality).  Optimal eating is about longevity, feeling better everyday and being more confident not just in your body, but all aspects of your business and life while loving the food that takes you there.

Thirty days after working with Trish, I lost 24 pounds (while my husband ate ice cream, chips and candy in front of me), even though the scale hadn’t moved for me in years.
— Linda Floyd, Accountant, Albany, OR

My clothes fit looser, and I have little to no indigestion anymore. I’ve lost about 10 pounds in 3 months. Just had lunch with a friend who told me I was looking good!
— Joy Parks, Business Analyst, Columbia, SC

Optimal eating is based on the totality of scientific evidence for weight-loss and longevity.  

There's many valid reasons to distrust Registered Dieticians and the medical profession. The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics and government accepts money from the food and pharmaceutical industry that compromises the integrity of their information.

On the other hand, there's a lot of "quackery" and froo froo wellness coaches whose information isn't grounded in science which means you don't know if it'll actually help or hurt you.   

Not only do I have a Masters of Science in Public Health Nutrition (MPHN), but I've trained and worked with the top researchers, MDs and NDs in the field of healthy and permanent weight-loss and disease reversal, all of which is grounded in scientific evidence.


I now I fit into old clothes I couldn’t get into before. I lost 20 pounds (despite what my husband is eating) and friends have noticed. My face is thinner, my energy increased and my digestion improved. I’m proud of myself.
— Amy Wright, Landscape Designer & Arborist

It’s been 6 months — I’ve lost 30 pounds, my cholesterol is now normal (after 25 years of it being high) and I’m no longer on blood pressure meds. There’s a good chance that I’ll look back in a few years and say this made the difference.
— Tom Owens, Professor at the University of South Carolina

I didn’t think eating this way would work for me, but it did, and it’s easier than I thought. I lost 8 pounds (over the holidays too!), my clothes got looser, my digestion improved, my energy increased and I’m sleeping better — an extra hour a night! And people have taken notice of my weight loss. I also didn’t think I’d like the food, but I did!
