Make snack time healthy, tasty, and hassle-free with these 21 ideas Manuel’s clients love!
Think of this program as a nutrition school that happens to be customized for you. Nutrition is a science but there is philosophy too. And my philosophy doesn’t include taking out any food groups.
In my 20+ years of experience, I’ve seen it takes at least 3 months to establish habits. So a program is necessary to maintain your results long after you finish working with me.
We’re going to dance together – I’ll hold your hand, and when you go to the right, we’ll step to the right. I will meet you where you are and we’ll go from there. It’s all about working together to win the ultimate prize!

Nutrition is 80% of the equation, and exercise is 20%. And even with 20%, exercise can be a barrier to weight loss.
First we need to evaluate how you exercise. You may be doing too much and focusing too little on your nutrition. Then, we address the majority of the equation – nutrition. As a Registered Dietitian, I will teach you the nutrition science you need to know for sustainable weight loss.
Unlike many other weight loss programs, this is individualized to you, and led by a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist. I look at you as a person – if you’re a mom with kids, your plan will be different than a teacher, and different than a CEO traveling across the country.
This virtual weight loss program is all about working from where you are, and teaching you the behavior modifications needed to get you to where you want to be.
I have helped hundreds of women lose weight during menopause, and it is possible. Ideally, you will start this program before menopause to learn the key elements to focus on in your body’s transitional time.
However, this program can be helpful before, during, and after menopause. There’s a specific way you need to eat when going through this phase in life and I will teach you how.
I will tell you suggestions. The beauty of this program is that it is customized to you. This means that I’ll never tell you that you can’t eat certain foods. My philosophy as a dietitian is not to remove any food groups.
The key is that you need to like the foods that you’re eating for lasting change, and my recommendations need to fit your culture. For example, if you’re a Peruvian like me, I’ll make sure potatoes will still fit in your diet.
We will work together to create a plan that you’ll both enjoy now and want to continue long term.
Yes, I will provide an exercise plan for weight loss. Since I’m not a personal trainer, I can’t show you how to do the exercises. But I will tell you what to do, and how often, which will complement your nutrition plan.
All sessions are done virtually, either via video calls or phone calls.
The program will provide the tools you need for long-term weight loss. However, there are continuation packages available if you’d prefer to have additional check-ins and accountability. These sessions are also helpful for people looking to lose large amounts of weight.
For example, if your goal is to lose 80 pounds, 3 months isn’t enough time to reach that goal. The program will teach you all you need to know to continue on your journey, and you will start off strong. But if you want ongoing accountability and guidance, the continuation packages are a great option.
