I'm an independent OPTAVIA Coach™

here is my story

Hi, thank you visiting my site. I have been a registered dietitian (RD) since 2004. My goal has been to help as many people as I could reach improve their health through nutrition and wellness. As a health coach, I will be committed to your overall well being. I am available by email, text, and phone to answer questions, or just give support when you're facing a challenge. On a personal note, Take Shape For Life helped me lose 50 pounds in under 5 months. I can speak from personal experience that it is the best program available, and the best part is you learn to EAT WELL FOR LIFE. My clients have experienced more energy, feeling better about themselves, their doctors take them off medications, and more. I look forward to helping you improve your life in every facet. To your health, Stephen (Steve) Della Croce, MS, RD, CDN
