Praise for Alissa

Nutrition Coaching

“Best thing, I don’t feel like depriving myself, having to eat in a way that I can only do for a limited period of time, or having to count calories, nutrients. Frankly, I feel my focus shifted to eating more: e.g., what healthy fats or proteins I can add to meals to make sure that I don’t have to feel hungry. Thank you so so much, Alissa!” —Sarah M.

I would highly recommend Alissa’s services because she gives scientifically sound advice that is not based on fads, hearsay, or marketing schemes. During our consultations, Alissa was always positive, honest, and forward-thinking. I can tell that Alissa has a passion for helping and learning, which boosts her credibility and creativity. I also appreciated that she was willing to provide remote consultations, which made her very accessible.” —Erin K. Washington D.C.

“Working with Alissa has been life-changing. It’s amazing how changing your attitude about eating in general, trickles down into every part of your life. In just the first month I could not believe how good I felt. My skin was the most immediate change and my energy level improved so much. Six months later, I can say Alissa’s plan has been life-changing. My cravings have almost totally disappeared, and my sleep and energy have been amazing. Plus I have completely stopped caring about my weight. This has really been a freeing experience. I would highly recommend Alissa to anyone who is looking to build sustainable, healthy food habits.” —Rebecca P. Annandale, VA

“I’ve tried fitness shake diets, calorie counting, and other app-based programs. I always get excited but then it fizzles and I quit because they aren’t sustainable. I believe I have found the secret with Alissa. I now can develop a plan that is based on research. I’ve tried a lot of things, but I’ve never felt so empowered, enlightened or rewarded as I do now.” —Derrick M. Atlanta, GA

“Alissa is the perfect coach and balances encouragement with accountability. She is kind, motivational, and super responsive. I learned so much and gained skills that will sustain me for years to come. I highly recommend working with Alissa!” —Michelle H. Connecticut

“Alissa combines evidence-based guidance that is combined with real-life scenarios as a health practitioner working with specific patients. This was my favorite session at the conference, and the information presented was something I was immediately was able to apply in my practice. Blenderized diets are becoming a bigger demand by patients and patient families. Therefore, it is essential that practitioners learn the latest in how this can be done in a safe and sustainable way that optimize our patient’s health outcomes.” —Angela Lemond, RDN, CSP, LD

She is articulate, organized, easily understood, and exhibits talent whether for a prepared presentation or when speaking extemporaneously. Alissa knows the science of nutrition and is not only well-respected dietitian, and credible, but also engaging. Alissa is flexible to meet aggressive deadlines, with a keen ability to adapt effectively to various personalities and situations. I have seen Alissa’s professional, media-savvy, nutrition knowledge, and enthusiasm shine during two social media trainings during our fall leadership retreat of the New York State Academy of Dietitians and Nutrition.” —Barbara R Baron, MS, RDN, CDN
Past President and Public Relations Coordinator, New York State Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics
