“Nothing happens until the pain of remaining the same outweighs the pain of change.” ― Arthur Burt
The NEWYOU program is our most comprehensive and integrated program. In addition to dealing with the mechanics of food and exercise, the NEWYOU program addresses with the root of your problems and helps you identify the underlying emotional issues that are driving your bad habits.
Unlike many other programs that focus on strictly on weight loss by drastically cutting calories or requiring long cardio sessions, we focus primarily on your physiological and emotional health, with weight loss and fitness being the byproduct of a healthy mind and body.
The NEWYOU program consists of:
Twenty-four 45-minute one-on-one in-person or phone sessions
Two years of follow up after program completion via six scheduled 25-minute follow up calls every four months
Customized nutritional guidance and support, as necessary
Individualized supplement regimen plan
Personalized, progressive exercise plan
Ongoing review and updates to exercise plan
7-day/week access by e-mail or text
If weight loss was as easy as a mathematical formula of calories-in minus calories-out, anyone with a rudimentary knowledge of arithmetic could easily lose weight and keep it off. Unfortunately, it is a far more complex proposition, and the NEWYOU program addresses these challenges. The goal is not just temporary weight loss, but a complete education enabling you to make the right food choices, learning what types of workouts are best suited for your goals and body type, and most importantly, gradually overhauling your lifestyle over the course of eight months and replacing bad habits with good ones to enable you to regain your health, take the weight off, and keep it off for life.
Although there is nothing "cookie-cutter" about the NEWYOU program, which is fully customized to each client and his or her needs and goals, we do address all of the topics below:
Learn to distinguish between healthy and unhealthy foods
Identify nutritional deficiencies and/or food sensitivities, if any
Focus on eating whole vs. processed foods

Goals: Quit smoking, moderate drinking, learn to manage stress, and lose weight.
Victoria is dedicated, analytical, responsive, compassionate, and focused on providing executable solutions to one's challenges. She has taught me how to make better food choices, create better habits and routines so that I am less stressed and more focused on sleep, and being calm, and mindful. I have quit smoking, make my bed every day, and make breakfast for myself every morning. Most importantly, I'm waking up with more purpose and self-love.
Before I started working with Victoria, I had no idea how stress takes a toll on someone and how it causes cravings. She started me on and made me commit to a meditation program (something I'd have never thought to help quit smoking and make better food choices), and starting and ending the day in a calmer state made me more aware of what I was doing. I've completely changed my approach on how I react to things.
This has been (and continues to be) an incredible journey. Despite my 45 lb weight loss, the most significant overall change I noticed in myself is my attitude toward life and being able to find joy in everyday things. I'm so thankful I found Victoria and reached out for the consultation. I only wish I had the mindset to do this 10 years ago. There are things (foods, behaviors) that I'll never go back to. I'm incredibly proud of the changes I've made.

Goals: Lose weight, stop impulse eating, define “healthy” and start living a healthy lifestyle
“Victoria has given me detailed answers to all of my questions, encouragement when I needed it and a good kick in the ass when I needed it too.
The program has given me a lot of autonomy. I have very young children and a very busy home life. This program has taken me off autopilot and increased my happiness tenfold.
I kicked the sugar habit and no longer crave processed sugar. The changes in my body have been dramatic. My skin looks absolutely fantastic, I haven’t had a breakout since cleaning up my diet. I am at goal weight and building more muscle. I am inching closer and closer to my “dream body.” But most importantly, I am more confident now than I have been in years. In the last three months I’ve posted more photos of myself to social media than I have in the last three years. I’m no longer hiding behind the camera.
Simply put, this program has my life. I feel so empowered. I went into this program hoping just to lose weight. I met my weight loss goal within the first two months but this program is so much more than weight loss. I look great but most importantly I feel great. I’m the best version of myself and I couldn’t be more pleased. Victoria has been one of the best investments I’ve ever made.
I would recommend this program without hesitation. I wish everyone had a Victoria.”

Goals: Regulate sleep patterns understand hormonal changes, and understand and rebalance food intake
“I’ve lost a lot of weight and I really wasn’t expecting to, or even had it as my ‘goals’ if you will, but I am incredibly happy and proud of the work I’ve done.
After a few short weeks, Victoria introduced me to supplements that had me sleeping regularly, no more hot flashes (NO MORE HOT FLASHES!) and I started to lose weight. I’m very happy, and feel like I have so much more energy.
There were no ‘real’ surprises in working with Victoria. Many of us know what needs to be done to get the results where desire. But what there is, in working with Victoria is accountability, and customization. I was not seeing some things I was doing as I had become blind to it. I needed help, and I asked for it, and we are getting more results than I would have ever imagined. She will fight for you as long as you are willing to fight for yourself, and then you are doing it together!
I continue to be learning new things about myself at a deeper level. Why the eating, why the drinking, both in excess. I’m grateful for the tools I’m garnering and feel ready to get out there and know how to manage life, while enjoying it to the fullest!
Victoria was the push I needed, the coach I wanted and the voice of reality. In being honest with her about how I feel and where my head is at, it helps us to work on what I need and thus, helps me get what I need out of the program.”

"I reached out to Victoria because I had gained 25 pounds while Consulting out of a home office (living on PB&Js and kids food) and a few too many Chardonnays added up to a lot of weight particularly in my mid section.
I consider myself someone who knows a good bit about diet and exercise... however I couldn't find the solution for the best way to lose weight and keep it off. Do I go low carb? Paleo? Organic? (Is organic chocolate OK?) Low calorie? And what's the best exercise to help me lose weight? Pilates? Yoga? Walking? High Intensity? CrossFit? Spin?
I was all over the place, eating very few calories for a few days, and then eating too many at a meeting when tired and bored. My work involves long hours and have a family, and I was not consistent with any eating or exercise approach. I was definitely not seeing the results I wanted.
Victoria is incredibly well read, knowledgeable and helped me put a plan in place. She is tough, and gives you the guidelines, but teaches you the concepts and makes you do the work yourself.
She put an exercise plan in place that was hard, and eventually became second nature.
She taught me about bone broth and turmeric. About shopping and prepping so the right foods for me were ready. She had sound insight into what types of pots and pans to use, what types of storage containers, and answered my many many questions.
Most of all, I was impressed that when I finally knew "what" to do, but was still struggling with compliance, then she helped me with the psychological issues that were holding me back.
Once I was able to consistently stay on the eating plan, and exercise plan, I was able to achieve my goals.
Victoria is tough and talented. I am THANKFUL for what I learned from her, and how she was able to help me achieve the health habits. I respect (and like) Victoria, and highly recommend her if you are looking to enhance your health, lose weight and increase your overall fitness."

Goals: Lose weight, learn how to eat and cook healthier, overcome emotional eating issues
"As long as I can remember I have had to struggle with my weight. I was a fat kid, fat teenager and fat most of my adult life. I tried every fad diet there was, exercised daily, tried every supplement under the sun and still remained Fat!!! Being fat all my life was not easy, it got to the point that I would not leave my house because I was embarrassed to see anyone I knew and did not want to meet anybody either. I was an emotional eater and found comfort in eating the most fattening foods out there.
Before I began working with Victoria, I was in a toxic relationship and ended up gaining even more weight. I actually put on over 100 lbs from 2008-2010. Well, meeting Victoria changed my life. Not only did she work with me, but I felt that she truly cared and talking to her felt like I was talking to one of my best friends!
Victoria's coaching and constant support and encouragement helped me to lose all the weight I had gained plus more!! To date, I have lost over 100 lbs, which would have been impossible without her guidance. I will be forever grateful for all the time she has with me above and beyond just our sessions to make sure I didn't fall off the wagon. More importantly, her program taught me the necessary skills I needed to help me keep the weight off for over a year now, and that I owe to Victoria as well.....thank you so much, love you girl!!!"

Goals: Lose weight, get more toned, resolve emotional eating issues
"I decided to reach out to Victoria because I was turning 40, had gained some extra weight over the last few years, and was starting to feel terrible about myself because I couldn't seem to take it off. Living in California, where everyone is super fit and thin all year around didn't help my self-esteem. I generally eat healthy and work out, but losing weight seems so much harder than it was in my 20s. I had followed Victoria on Facebook for about two years, but kept putting off contacting her because I thought I could do it myself. Well, two years later, I realized that I could not. It's not that I don't eat healthy or work out. I do. Religiously! However, I seem to start the day off well and completely lose control in the evening.
So I finally broke down and decided to give myself a 40th birthday gift... and I have to admit that with Victoria's help, it has been the best gift I've ever received. In just a few short months, she has taught me that 1) not everything I was eating was nearly as healthy as I thought, 2) I didn't have to starve myself or be in the gym doing hours of cardio to lose weight, and 3) the scale is a worthless liar. In all honesty, I never thought it would be so easy. I am eating way more calories than I ever have, going to the gym less than I ever did, and doing barely any cardio... and yet, still losing weight. It's completely counter-intuitive! Even my co-workers had trouble believing it when I told them. Now two of them are also Victoria's clients and finding out for themselves.
However, the thing that I am most grateful (and the thing I least expected when I started working with Victoria) is that Victoria helped me identify and explore some deeply personal and highly sensitive areas of my life that I didn't even realize were leading me to seek out sugary or salty foods and to binge on them uncontrollably. I am so proud to say that I have not had any sugar in two months (something I never thought was possible for me) and have had complete control over my eating thanks to Victoria's guidelines, support and detailed plan. I am so thankful I found you, Victoria. I don't think I've ever felt better or looked more in shape than I do at the age of 40!"
