I'm an independent OPTAVIA Coach™

here is my story


I have been practicing science based clinical nutrition in New York City for over 25 years and I have worked to make weight loss an achievable goal for anyone who is ready to raise their level of health, energy and wellbeing. Take Shape For Life is the most powerful program I know to put you on the path to a normal body composition and ultimately, optimal health. The program utilizes high-quality, medically formulated meal replacements combined with free coaching support to help you lose weight and keep it off. It is not a diet, but a two-phased approach for weight loss and maintenance. In the first phase, you will use Medifast portion-controlled meal replacements to lose 2-5 pounds per week for the first two weeks and 1-2 pounds per week thereafter, without surgery or medications. As your Health Coach, I am a free resource that will guide you through the program and provide on-going personal coaching. I will help you build up the knowledge, skills, and support you need to realize health and help keep you focused on your long-term goals and dreams. Once you achieve your desired weight loss, you will transition into the Maintenance plan, which will allow you to put your healthy habits to work to support lasting weight maintenance. Small actions, such as building exercise into your day and eating breakfast, add up to make a significant impact on your overall health. Throughout this process, I will serve as your mentor, educator, coach, and friend. Before you know it, friends, family, colleagues, and your doctor will want to know your secret to looking and feeling good. There is no greater feeling than when I am able to introduce optimal health to a Client, find out that, due to weight loss, they have reduced certain weight-related medications or discover the new aspects of life that he or she can now more fully experience. Are you ready to choose health? Then I look forward to supporting you through this journey. With regards, Richard Kowal CD-N, DC
