I have had an excellent learning experience with Ivette and feel I am changing my life for the better. I have learned to monitor my grocery shopping and eating. Ivette is very easy to talk with and gives very positive feedback.
My goal in working with Ivette was to lose weight, gain energy and get back on a healthy eating track. I achieved my goals of weight loss and increased energy. I also do not crave chocolate like I used to! Ivette has been a huge support. I would recommend this program to anyone who wants to lose weight, regain energy, and needs help with healthy eating planning.
Ivette is a terrific motivator, our phone conversations inspired and urged me to continue on my new path to healthy eating which has proved a positive step toward having more energy, losing weight and feeling better inside and out.
All the benefits of our sessions were confirmed at my recent doctor’s appointment. My test results showed my bad cholesterol and triglycerides are down while good cholesterol is up and the loss of twenty pounds, all a direct result of meaningful life-style changes, exercising more, and continuing to follow the plan so caringly set up just for me by Ivette were very rewarding and despite the numerous changes made, at no time did I feel deprived or alone in my journey. Ivette was available via e-mail or phone in between sessions.
I would highly recommend to anyone who is considering working with this talented Certified Holistic Health Coach, that they avail themselves of the opportunity and enjoy the positive changes that are possible as a result of working with Ivette.

I had such a positive experience with Ivette. Not only did she help me gain knowledge on food and nutrition, but she helped me face my fears. We talked about real-life situations from my struggles with career and education to relationships. She taught me different coping mechanisms on how to handle real-life situations.
I started this journey in October of 2012. I was an overweight junk food junkie. I would eat if I was depressed or whenever something would bother me. I have found a new path, a new way of looking at life for me and my family. I am very proud of myself today. I have lost 40 pounds and have never felt better as a person. Eating better, feeling better, seeing clearer, feeling stronger. I am so happy to have Ivette in my life. I would not change back to the way I was before. Ivette, I truly thank you for being a wonderful COACH! You are the most caring, understanding, helpful coach. That keeps me on the right track. I am truly grateful. Thank you for being so wonderful.
After being on a “diet” for what felt like my entire life, I never thought I would be able to change my lifestyle. Working with Ivette, not only changed my eating habits, but I discovered how happy and stress free I could actually be.
If anyone can get me to drink green smoothies, it’s Ivette! She has taught me and my family a stress free, healthy and fun way of living and eating!
Ivette Desai has been a major influence in my life. In less than a year, I have reduced my pant size 4 inches and have lost 35 pounds. More importantly, I now know how to eat clean and natural foods that provide nourishment and energy. Finally, I experienced some major health issues and recovered from them well because I had lost weight and had the energy to sustain major surgery.
I have learned to listen to my body and understand how it responds to various foods. My bio-individuality is unique and the only path to health is to understand my own rhythms.I have learned the difference between self-care and self-indulgence. I have embraced both breathing exercises and meditation. I have learned to substitute my sugar and salt cravings with natural foods that are both rewarding and satisfying.
During this past year, I faced a life-threating illness and have learned how fragile life can be. I am the one who must decide the path and truly understand how to transform myself. My guide along this journey has been Ivette Desai. You could not find a better health coach, so I recommend her with great enthusiasm.”
