As Your Food as Medicine Coach
Hi, I’m Roxana, born in Peru and now living in California, fluent in both Spanish and English. As your committed Food as Medicine coach, I will guide you to make small, positive changes that help you lose weight, keep it off and feel amazing in your clothes again. Also expect to gain confidence and happiness with your new knowledge that will help you heal and prevent disease in the future.
I am here to listen to you and serve you. While we will use evidence-based techniques and strategies throughout our work together, I will tailor a plan specifically for you. Your plan will be based on your needs – whether with general weight loss, bone loss, muscle mass, strength, flexibility, balance, alignment or aging gracefully.
As your coach, I’m here to encourage, educate and help you lose weight in ways you enjoy, are able to sustain and that will also pleasantly surprise you in other areas of your health. I believe you will love your new health and habits as much as I do!
As a Former Dieter...
During my modeling career and pageant competitions, I tried every diet and method to lose weight, and nothing worked for me. Finally, I discovered food as medicine and incorporated exercise to maintain a healthy figure and energy level. I lost 10 pounds, my clothes fit better and I won the crown of Ms. Perú in 1980. I also learned how food could rebuild my body when I felt more energized and was not getting sick – all because of the food and exercise changes.
Fast forward and after getting married and having my first baby, I still had weight to lose. So I resumed more of my healthy habits, got back to my healthier weight and won another crown for Mrs. Perú 1984. This is when I knew I had to share the benefits of Food as Medicine with other women. Many years after I moved to the States I got my degree in Nutrition & Fitness as I continued to help women with weight loss issues.
Now, watching my clients improve their diet, fitness and overall health has been the most gratifying experience. It has not only confirmed my passion for nutrition and fitness but has also inspired me to educate specifically about how your eating habits impact your self-image too.
Are you ready to trade dieting for lasting weight loss that brings lots of other health benefits – simply by using food as medicine?
