In this day and age, when people are obsessed with “weight loss”, and have little time to commit to cooking, her job is most challenging. Her mantra is to “cook once and enjoy more than twice”. That paired with a simple and easy game plan and more than 200 recipes available on her virtual recipe library of all cultures and themes, helps get clients into the kitchen using real, wholesome food to not only hit and maintain their weight goals but significantly improve their health.

At sixty years of age, Gina practices what she preaches and preaches what she practices, understanding the value of using “food as medicine” paired with a little calculated exercise in one’s daily life, but also the importance of “preventative care screening” and having a medical provider that believes in shared decision making. Because so many lifestyle diseases today are both increasing our disability and shortening our longevity, in order for individuals to have a sustainable lifestyle shift, there are many facets that go into a successful approach, including interactive nutrition education AND a practical approach to putting science and evidence-based nutrition on one’s plate.
