"The first wealth is health."

– Ralph Waldo Emerson

Personal Fitness Chef and Coaching Services

Many studies have shown that good nutrition can help improve exercise performance, decrease recovery time from strenuous exercise, prevent injuries, control weight management, and reduce chronic diseases such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease, high blood pressure, osteoporosis, and possibly some cancers.  A balanced menu is before anything, a menu that offers a variety of healthy foods to satisfy the body's nutritional needs, and if reasonable, one's personal needs.  The secret of a well-balanced menu lies in consuming a variety of foods, the right amount of food, and learning how to accept and compensate for a day of indulgence.

Chef Pati D'Eliseo of A Posto Personal Chef Services LLC has been certified as a Personal Fitness Chef through the Spencer Institute: a leader in life coaching and wellness education.  This certification further enhances Chef Pati's life-long passion of shopping for, cooking and eating seasonal and healthy foods.  The amount of information available today on food is overwhelming, intimidating, and often times misleading.  Chef Pati can help guide you through the food choice 'maze' to select fresh, seasonal whole foods that are lower in fat, salt, and just taste better because they are fresh and in season.  These programs are targeted to help those who are committed to making long-term changes to their eating habits and food selection choices to help attain or maintain a healthy lifestyle. 

A Posto is pleased to offer the following services (the services and programs provided here are designed to support, not replace, the relationship that exists between a patient and physician):
