Food Photography Staging

The average American adult tries a fad diet 4 times per year. Within two weeks, 25% will give up and 50% will stop in a month. 90-95% of people will gain all the weight back in 5 years or less. These facts are incredible, but what’s insane is you continue. You convince yourself this time will be different, and for that you develop emotional eating problems and generate 61 billion dollars for people taking advantage of you.

Hippocrates, the father of modern medicine said over 2500 years ago, “let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food” It’s unfortunate that studies continue to show that overweight parents raise overweight children. Then these children become parents who do the same, it’s a cycle I know we can stop. 

They are always searching for the next super food, quick weight loss pill, magic shake, or miracle diet. None of them work!!!!, diets don’t work, Super food was made up by a marketing company to sell more products, weight loss pills, drinks, and shakes are great for thinning out your bank account only.

That’s where we come in. We are professional chefs and skilled educators that are experts in food and culinary techniques. Our mission is to Educate and empower consumers to manage and reduce chronic illness by using food as medicine. The power of food can reverse and prevent chronic illness, so we strive to serve the whole person–Mind, Body, and Spirit.


Our C.P.C. Disease Management Program™ addresses and solves the chronic illness/obesity problem with tangible financial, emotional, and physical results. It’s a program that’s dynamic, entertaining and very informative. It makes life’s transition to healthy living seamless, and culturally sensitive.

Cooking and getting healthy doesn’t have to be complicated or expensive but to have that health and financial impact be relevant and tangible you have to make it part of a new normal. You have done their way for so many years and are still struggling, give us a chance, you have nothing to lose and everything to gain.  The next step you have to take is on your own, but after that we walk together. God Bless
