How to Lose Weight, Keep it Off, Get Healthy, and Feel Better Than You Ever Imagined
So many people have tried dieting, tried exercise, and still have not successfully gotten to the weight and body composition they know they could have. One of my specialties is helping people identify the problems that have kept them from succeeding in the past, and helping them finally succeed in reaching – and even surpassing – their goals.
If you have found that all the diet programs, eating “right”, limiting calories, even with exercise, does not work for you, you are not alone. If you have had this experience, it is not your fault! You are probably missing some essential information that will make it work for you as a unique individual: not just what’s theoretically healthy, but what is healthy for YOU!
In order to lose weight and keep it off, you need a healthy metabolism. Contrary to popular belief, your metabolism is not static: anyone can change a poor metabolism into a healthy, fat-burning metabolism. Once you have healed your metabolism, your body will naturally burn fat.
One of the most common impediments to weight loss is hidden food sensitivities. They can cause so much inflammation in your system that it is impossible to lose weight and keep it off. My clients find that once they eliminate these from their diet, the pounds come off so much more easily, and many other symptoms disappear too, even ones they thought were “just a normal part of aging”.
My program works because I combine sound scientific information, years of experience, an in-depth understanding of your unique circumstances, and week-by-week coaching, so that the program is custom-tailored for you. I take a thorough history in our initial consultation, and then we get to work making the changes you need to feel better in every area of your life. We can work in person or long distance, by phone or webcam.
I coach clients through the basics of customized balanced eating, “smart” exercise, replacing core nutrient deficiencies and behavior modification. I help clients heal areas of metabolic damage to finally resolve their weight issues, based on their individual needs and circumstances. I also address conditions that are known to be caused by or exacerbated by obesity, including hypertension, diabetes, osteoarthritis, and other degenerative conditions, to ensure that clients reach and maintain optimal health.

What Clients Say:
“I’ve never felt this good. I’ve lost 29 pounds, 27 of it fat and it’s not like I’m starving myself, not at all. It makes life a lot easier! To think that at 53 I had arthritis! It’s gone. Sure we’re all getting older, but I don’t have that inflammation any more. I feel much healthier, I’m more active, I sleep better, I have more mental clarity and a more positive attitude.” IE
I recently completed Fran’s 13 week weight loss program and am now 25 pounds lighter! I have been seeking Fran’s advice for a few years now. Every time something in my body “broke down”, I immediately reached out to Fran. She kept telling me that I needed to change my eating habits. I tried, but after feeling better each time, I fell off the wagon. Now I know what was missing. It was Fran’s weekly guidance and coaching. After being diagnosed with kidney stones, fatty liver and diverticulum in my colon, what did I do? What else? Pick up the phone and call Fran, AGAIN. She gently nudged me to think about what she had told me all along: I had to change what I was eating. I committed to her 13 week program and Fran helped with everything from physical to psychological issues. She tested me for different supplements and guided me in the use of my new found love for essential oils. The weight came off and I noticed changes starting to happen to my digestive system. I have more energy, sleep better and have a new found love for life and veggies!! Without Fran, I know I would be unhealthy and feeling emotionally “sick” right now. Way to go Fran!!! —VP, Centereach, NY
I’ve lost 35 pounds since I started working with Fran. When I’ve been on diets in the past, it’s been agonizingly painful, so difficult for it to come off. Since I’ve been on the supplements and homeopathic remedies, it just comes off. I was put on Fosamax in 2003 for osteopenia and… my MD couldn’t believe the results since last July: there was a 50% improvement and my bones are now normal. She said that she has never seen so much improvement before. I look great and have more energy. It makes me very happy. —ES, Westwood, MA
Fran is always a considerate, compassionate, deeply aware and intuitive person who works in earnest to alleviate the stresses we inadvertently place on our body, mind and spirit. Not only do I enjoy our sessions and find much benefit in them but I have also seen major health improvements in the process. During the 15 month period of our work together, I have lost approximately 70 pounds (so much for the myth of not being able to lose weight after menopause) and my cholesterol dropped 60 points, all triglycerides and LDL cholesterol. Testing further revealed much improvement and restoration to my major organs. I have more energy and my mind seems to be functioning as it did in my youth. Although there is still much to be done, I consider myself blessed and fortunate to have found an exceptional and gifted healer to help me on my journey. —CP, Saylorsburg, PA
