As a 39-year-old woman I always felt like I was always on a diet. I have tried nearly every diet, visited many of the weight loss spas and ranches and hired trainers throughout the years. However as a busy professional, my lifestyle was not allowing me to get results. I enjoyed my 1 week stays at the spas where I was pampered and had lower stress but once I got back to my office on Monday morning my "normal" hit me as abnormal. I realized I did not have balance and needed to gain this in order to get off the diet and yo-yo weight loss cycle. I had built so much muscle from training that I did not feel lean. I contacted Rania for Nutrition Consulting Services.
  • Rania came to my office and did a metabolism test to see how many calories I burn.
  • Then constructed a diet plan based on my food issues.
  • She identified key times during the day in which my lack of preparedness were not only sabotaging my weight loss goals but also my energy and ability to perform at work. After 3 PM I was done!
I signed up for Rania's 90 Day Online Health Breakthrough Program with a goal of losing 15 pounds. The great thing about Rania is she really cares about your progress and makes changes to your diet plan based on the feedback you give her.  I also think her prices are quite reasonable. I've lost about 10 lbs and have another 5 to go.  With all the options Rania gave me, I'm in a really good place with how I eat and have enough menu options to keep me motivated.

I met Rania in April 2006 at the age of 35 when I was at my heaviest weight of 230 pounds. I started working with a Trainer at the Sports Club LA who suggested that I should work with Rania. We started off my identifying my goals and discussing my lifestyle. I kept a food log for Rania in which it became obvious that I was dining out and eating late as I stayed at the office well past 8 PM on most week nights. This was absolutely true. I had never used my kitchen and was not about to start! I hired Rania as my personal chef in 2006. Within the first month I lost 11 pounds eating delicious, fresh foods that satisfied my taste buds. She accommodates the menu for me on a weekly basis and 4 years later I still use her services. I have successfully lost 35 pounds and have transformed by body from 30% body fat to 12% body fat. I train with my trainer 2 times a week and practice yoga 2 times a week with 2 additional days of cardio. I have a healthier lifestyle and can enjoy travel and social situations without worrying about my weight. This was the best investment in my health and wellness. Every week I choose a menu that she now ships to me overnight from Portland to my office here in San Francisco. She continuously adds new items for me to choose from and I have liked everything that I have tried up to date.

Meal Catering Nourishes Mom and Child Throughout Pregnancy and Birth

Rania came to my home to teach me how to prepare healthy meals about 2 weeks before I gave birth. This was tremendously helpful for me to see how easy it is to prepare healthy delicious meals in my home vs. asking my husband to pick something up for us on his way home. She is very creative in the kitchen and is a very welcoming and kind woman.

I contacted Rania during the 2nd trimester of my pregnancy and checked in with her until I gave birth so that I could monitor my weight gain and find solutions to my cravings. I continued to work with Rania as a new mom. I wanted to nourish my body so that I could not only meet my newborn's needs but also those that I need for energy as well as losing the baby weight.

Six weeks after giving birth I treated my self to 3 months of Meal Catering combined with Nutrition Consulting so that I would be successful in not only losing the baby weight but having the tools to keep the weight off.

Pre-Wedding Tools to Reach and Maintain Ideal Body Weight

I was picture perfect on the day of my wedding. I am not only talking about the way I looked in my dress but also how I felt, the improvement of my skin (Rania is very good at recommending beauty products and takes care of herself as well), how confident I was walking down the aisle and just really setting myself up for success. Thank you!

I met Rania through my personal trainer and started to work with her when I was at my heaviest weight of 165. I got engaged to my boyfriend of 5 years about 2 months into working with Rania and knew that my wedding was on the horizon. I set a goal to successful reach and maintain my ideal body weight of 125 lbs. for 2 months prior to my wedding. I needed a coach, motivation, support, education, and accountability to do this. This is where Rania comes in. I signed up for a 1 year program which included:
  • Kitchen and pantry makeover
  • Cooking lessons
  • Meal catering
  • Nutrition consulting
We designed an EATING STRATEGY that was unique to my work schedule as I traveled back and forth to the East Coast every month and had a pretty busy social life on the weekends.

Weight Struggles End

I hit menopause and had a tummy that would not go away. Rania developed an effective eating strategy unique to my body while still accommodating the glass of wine I liked to enjoy at night. I did not gain a pound this past holiday season and entered 2010 slimmer, healthier, and with more variety in my diet than I ever imagined possible.

I called Rania after struggling to lose 10 pounds for 2 years. I had lost 6 on my own but it took about 10 months and I had practically given up. I kept a food journal on my own and when I looked at I thought that I ate well, typically organic when I could, and balanced. I found Rania on YELP and thought I would take her up on her complimentary 15 minute goal assessment session. It was during this time that I told her what was going on with my body - I had hit menopause and I just had a tummy that would not go away as well as an added cushion pretty much all over my body. She assured me that she had worked with many women who had gone through what I am experiencing. These are women who up until 50 or so successful maintained a healthy weight and an active lifestyle. These 10-15 pounds were a result of a hormone imbalance that was causing my body to store fat efficiently. Rania developed an effective eating strategy unique to my body and needs while still accommodating the glass of wine I liked to enjoy at night with my husband. Better than anything, I did not gain a pound this past holiday season and entered 2010 slimmer, healthier, and with more variety in my diet than I ever imagined possible. She is very reasonably priced and allowed me to pay her two payments for the 90 Day Program. What a delight it is to not have to throw away my favorite clothing that I spent a bit of money on and to wear them proudly. She continues to educate me with new information and recipes that I can actually make at home myself! I am so thankful and recommend her highly. She is a class act.
