About Elizabeth

Hey! I’m Elizabeth! I’m so happy that you’re here so you can get to know me and I can learn how I can best help YOU reach your goals!

Who am I & why am I here?

Great questions!

Well, I’m Elizabeth, of course, and I help people who are tired of dieting, tired of not getting results, tired of not being consistent and tired of the same ‘ol, same ‘ol.

What do I help them do?

  • Get out of their own way
  • Identify & eliminate the things that are holding them back and allowing them to self-sabotage
  • Find foods they love that love them back so they can stop feeling so miserable and deprived while pursuing their goals
  • Balance their hormones and enjoy more energy, less hunger and NO cravings
  • Stop dieting, start living & loving their body
  • Get results

For me, nothing is more fulfilling than helping people like you…

  • Love food more while losing weight faster (totally possible)
  • Stop feeling like food has more control than you do
  • Create a unique & totally personalized fat loss lifestyle (that’s fun, sane & delicious)

I’ve been there, I’ve done it. I’ve helped myself, I’ve helped others & now I want to help YOU.

My weight has always been a battle. I come from a long line of tall, thin women and I’ve always been an athlete but I have always struggled with my weight. I have lost (and gained) hundreds pounds while frantically attempting just about every diet craze out there. I remember being on Weight Watchers in high school and eating all 30 of my points in fat-free microwave popcorn and sugar-free jello. (Just so ya know, you can eat a freakin’ truckload of those things and stay under 30 points.) In college I went nearly 2 months eating nothing but protein shakes and chicken broth. I’ve gone months eating nothing but apples and tilapia and others counting every.single.calorie while crafting my diet around fat-free ice cream and sugar-free cookies. my-story-elizabeth-benton-01 I’ve cancelled dozens of doctor appointments just because I didn’t want to have to get on the scale. It didn’t work and I was determined to find another way.

Finding Answers

I spent most of my time and energy – literally years of my life – trying to find that one diet that would rip all the extra weight off me and keep it off forever.  I was so obsessed with this pursuit that I walked away from college scholarship and transferred schools to study nutrition. After graduating with a BS in Human Nutrition, I got a job as a nutrition educator. I simultaneously started pursuing my master’s degree in nutrition. A few years later I got a job in product development working with dietary supplements and weight loss products….I devoted my entire life to finding the Holy Grail of weight loss….the product, the food, the food combinations, oh my word it was exhausting. And I was fat.

Even though my head was stuffed full of information from my degrees plus the bazillion books I read and the trillion blogs and news outlets I followed, I felt like I had no answers, no solutions and no way out.

It’s Not You…

And it wasn’t me. I didn’t have the right strategy. You don’t either. We’re going to find it together.

It’s not that you haven’t found the magic bullet. It’s that you haven’t found a way to make the right strategies work for your body. That’s what I’m here for. That’s what I do.

And when I’m not doing that…

  • I love to watch Scandal
  • I’m a huge NFL football fan (Go Pats – don’t hate!)
  • I like to let my 100 lb German Shepard take me for a walk
  • I love to lift heavy things at the gym (and I steer clear of all treadmills)
