Your Healthy Body Builder, Trainer and Food Maven who confidently posed nearly half naked on stage for my 50th birthday.

So why was I half naked? Because I was fulfilling a lifelong dream of being a body builder figure competitor, and bodybuilders wear barely a bikini to show off their muscles. Yup! I lost 38 pounds in 16 weeks and showed up on stage as the best version of myself. (Of course I havepictures to prove it *wink wink*)

It sounds like an impossible fairytale, but it’s absolutely the REAL DEAL.

The way you eat has everything to do with how you look, feel and perform (in every area of your life). ‘When you eat processed refined fake food, it shows up on your body; when you eat pure and naked the body of your dreams shows up.’ Just imagine for a moment how different your life would be if you could wear your confidence on your sleeve and in your heart instead of a badge of fat and discomfort across your chest or belted around your belly.

Being over forty and “fat and frumpy” is not your right of passage, it’s just a lame, unacceptable excuse.

That gorgeous woman inside of you wants to show her real self on the outside too.

If this overweight, out of shape, overwhelmed, over-stressed, 50 year old mother of three could do it, well, you can too! It didn’t happen overnight; but being 100% committed and taking one step at a time helped me to fulfill my dream. While presenting my “best self” on stage, I exposed the real (almost) “naked” me and simultaneously launched my “naked brand” of Sleeping and Cooking Naked.

Hold on please! I don’t expect for you to become a body builder and stand naked on stage. But I do believe that you can “build” the best version of yourself and present your best physical self in your life. Unless you know something I don’t, you only have one body. Isn’t it time you took the proper care of it by feeding well and nourishing it with (self) love?

As a Body Change Catalyst and Food Maven, I educate, motivate and inspire women to feel gorgeous because I believe that every woman has the possibility to look and feel rockin’ hot, healthy and sexy at any and every age. I am committed to helping you build the best version of yourself.

Mediocrity doesn’t work in my world. I am in search of AMAZING… for myself and my clients. I am not interested in why you can’t. I know that it is possible to change your body, your health and your life at any age by changing what you eat.

Come hang out with me if you want to Sleep Naked, Cook Naked, Live Naked and Love Naked with a vengeance. I can help you dodge the temptations preventing you from being your best and shift you into loving yourself and your body…even enough to leave your pajamas off!
