STAR Coaching

      For many years we helped people lose weight with various tools like meal replacement programs, appetite suppressants, gastric balloons and bariatric surgeries, but we always felt like there was a piece missing. We finally realized there were many people merely seeking education and accountability... enter STAR Coaching. 

Our STAR (Start Transforming and Achieve Results) Coaching program provides the education and accountability you need to develop healthy eating habits and lose weight. STAR is led by our registered dietitian, Emily Vaughan, who is passionate about health and fitness and will partner with you to transform your lifestyle.

Emily uses her expertise to educate you on healthy eating and nutrition, focusing on helping you understand the “why” behind our healthy eating plan. This education empowers you to eat healthier and lose weight and is key to maintaining this lifestyle once you reach your goal.

Accountability is a crucial aspect of STAR. You won’t always be motivated to stick to your healthy eating plan, but consistent communication with our coach along with regular weigh-ins and personalized meal plans helps you achieve results.
