Losing weight is often required to get to a healthier body. Now, if you want to lose weight quickly with a diet you can “power through” until you hit your goal, my French approach won't be a good fit. But if you want lasting results and a pleasurable life while reaching your goals and making deep changes in your lifestyle, you’re in the right place.
When I say, “lasting results”, I’m not talking a few months or even a few years. I mean for the rest of your life.
We have one life. Why suffer through it?
According to recent research, the obesity rate in France is half that of the United States. But, if you’ve ever been to France or eaten French food, you know we love our baguettes, rich cheeses, and chocolate pastries. The secret to healthy eating, losing weight, and keeping it off isn’t in the French food itself. It’s in the way the French view food, and also in all the other elements of the French lifestyle that naturally lead to a healthy lifestyle.
It's not a diet, it's a lifestyle!
Every client and every path will be different—but here are some things we will explore together:
- Build awareness around what nourishes your body and your mind;
- Plan ahead so that you can enjoy healthy and delicious meals without all the work;
- Work= more whole foods and more plants into your diet;
- Adjust your eating choices both for health AND pleasure;
- Optimize your sleep for fat burning and appetite regulation;
- Build physical activity into your daily life to help you control your blood sugar and keep the weight off;
- Manage your stress in a way that speeds up your metabolism.
The most common push-back I get up front is: “This sounds very nice, but I have no time for all this!” That’s why my focus is on finding simple ways to live a healthier life that really suits you, your needs, and your preferences. If you don't like to cook, why should you prepare gourmet meals every night? If you don't like the gym, why should you get a membership?

Stella is AMAZING! She is so encouraging and helpful with real down to earth advise!
She personally has helped me lose a tone of weight and been super supportive getting back on track with real lifestyle changes!
Thank you, Stella, for everything!
Stella is warm, but at the same time, very much down to earth, and she does not waste time with B.S.
We only worked together for a few weeks, but it was enough for me to completely change my eating habits. I feel less hungry, and that makes a big difference in the way my day goes by!
Stella helped me so much! Under her guidance I went from feeling despair and resignation to being hopeful and excited about my future. I gained confidence, lost weight, learned to curb my cravings for sweets/snacks and discovered power of "tiny habits". I can't recommend Stella highly enough!
