“Lara helps you develop a relationship with food that isn’t about deprivation or antagonism…[and] define the role of food as something to fuel and nourish you in every sense, with the ultimate goal of bringing out the very best in you.”
The best thing you can do for your health and diet right now is work with Lara Dalch. I have been a fitness enthusiast my whole life and fitness professional for over a decade. Even though I had a generally good idea of how to make smart, informed choices about food and diet, Lara offered several suggestions and recommendations that really made an impact on my life.
The main difference between working with Lara and embarking on a healthy crusade alone is her support, her compassionate ear, and her ability to empower you to feel like you can create healthy, tasty, quick, and affordable meals that will satisfy. She doesn’t overwhelm you with a regime that you can’t possibly adhere to. She doesn’t make you feel guilty for enjoying one of the greatest pleasures in life (food). She doesn’t alienate you with formulas and hocus-pocus tricks to stay thin. Lara helps you develop a relationship with food that isn’t about deprivation or antagonism, rather how to mentally and practically make choices that are manageable and define the role of food as something to fuel and nourish you in every sense with the ultimate goal of bringing out the very best in you.
Having successfully completed Lara’s program, I can say that today I feel much more relaxed and reasonable about my food choices. I have found a way of incorporating greens into my diet that has truly impacted my energy and sense of well-being. I was able to tackle my impulsive sugar and caffeine cravings, and now have a much more healthy awareness and balance. I now even cook a few times a week – and for my lifestyle this is a tremendous feat.
I thoroughly recommend Lara and Dalch Wellness. Her program is relevant, accessible, and essential for long-term healthy living.

“I saw numerous nutritionists before starting this program and none of them were able to help the way Lara did.”
After working with Lara, I have a different approach to eating and no longer panic about food. My overall outlook and approach to health has changed. I now truly understand what I’m putting into my body and how it benefits or harms me – that knowledge has helped me make healthier decisions. I no longer feel like I struggle to stay away from certain foods, and I don’t feel guilty when I do indulge a little. I’ve surprised myself with my change in diet and am even more surprised by how it didn’t feel like a sacrifice.
In addition, I lost 9 pounds and my IBS symptoms, which were my biggest concern, have all decreased tremendously!! I saw numerous gastroenterologists and nutritionists before starting this program and none of them were able to help the way Lara did.
Lara makes you feel comfortable talking to her right away – she exudes good, happy energy that’s contagious. Her ongoing support and constant encouragement kept me excited and dedicated to the program. I truly felt that she was a partner. No matter what I told her – often thoughts that I feared were ridiculous – Lara always made me feel that she “got it” and always had a recommendation that guided me to improving my health and overall wellness. I never felt like I was being told what to do; instead, I felt guided and that the program was made especially for me, not generic.

“With Lara, I felt that I had a choice in what I ate and how I ate it rather than being on a strict diet.”
Lara is unlike most nutritionists. She allows you to use foods that work with your lifestyle to address your concerns. With Lara, I felt that I had a choice in what I ate and how I ate it rather than being on a strict diet. She was there with constant support along the way, whether offering recipe recommendations or checking to make sure I was staying on track.
Working with Lara changed the way I look at food – I not only feel better and healthier, but I also enjoy going to the grocery store and putting meals together using ingredients I previously overlooked. I completed the program having fixed all of my original concerns, and I enjoyed every session along the way. I now make a conscious choice about what I put in my body rather than just eating whatever is easy. I have Lara to thank for that.
“Lara is a supportive and knowledgeable coach who helped me pinpoint issues I was unable to articulate on my own. Her focus on balancing life and not just worrying about food was an eye-opening and important perspective for me at this point in my life.”
Working with Lara has allowed me to tune into how I eat, why I eat, and how it makes me feel. I’m more aware of times when I eat not because I’m hungry but because something else is bothering me or causing stress. Not focusing on food to make me feel better has improved my relationships with others and with myself and helped me better manage stress. I’ve learned to enjoy cooking again and not think of it as a chore.
I’ve also noticed more balance in my life, including making room for creativity and relaxation; time with family and friends; better time management; and things I never thought I’d do like running my first 5k race! I feel more confident that I can set goals and find the motivation to achieve them.

“Deciding to work with Lara was one of the best decisions I made this year. If you decide to use her services and make an honest effort to follow her recommendations, I’m sure it will be one of the best choices you make this year.”
I originally contacted Lara because I was having trouble getting my eating habits under control, and was finally ready to admit that I couldn’t do it on my own. After our initial consultation, I was convinced that if anyone could help, it was Lara; and this turned out to be true. In six months, I lost approximately 12 lbs and several inches around my waist. More importantly, I am making far more healthy food choices, and my self-confidence has never been better.
But working with Lara is not just about losing weight. Her comprehensive and personalized approach also addresses improving fitness levels, diversifying one’s diet and managing stress. In my case, my consumption of water, green veggies and whole grains (including quinoa, which Lara encouraged me to try and is now a staple in my diet) has dramatically increased. Lara also recommended I add strength training and stretching to my cardio-heavy fitness routine. In addition to visibly improving my ability on the tennis court and on the ice (I am a competitive figure skater and avid tennis player), I now can touch my palms to the floor and have lovely biceps!
Although I made significant progress during the first six months, I still have a long way to go, and so I recently “reupped” to get the support I need to make it to the next level of fitness and weight loss. I’m happy to report I am well on my way to meeting ambitious 3 and 6 month goals. Deciding to work with Lara was one of the best decisions I made this year. If you decide to use her services and make an honest effort to follow her recommendations, I’m sure it will be one of the best choices you make this year.

I’ve worked with Lara since the Fall of 2010 and found her to be particularly informative and helpful. She simply knows her stuff and how to communicate it. As a result of her suggestions (prodding?), not only have I lost weight, but I am more cognizant of what I am eating which has helped better balance my diet with more nutritious foods. Additionally, I’m now re-focusing on other elements of my health wheel, making exercise a priority and reducing stress. I strongly recommend her services.
