“This program has shown me how to play with the foods I like, not foods that are dictated in a meal plan.  That’s the best part!  It’s food freedom all the time, not just when I'm being good” ~Sandra R.

I was on the diet rollercoaster for many years..


I understand the frustration of being on a never-ending rollercoaster of dieting and the endless advise from well-meaning family and friends and trying to navigate the confusing world of online fitness and nutrition advise.

In my career as a fitness professional, I was taught and encouraged my clients to follow the prevailing wisdom of the day....

you know it as 'eat breakfast when you wake up and then eat less and exercise more'.

The problem was that neither my clients or myself ever had sustainable success with that approach.

Fitness and nutrition research has changed dramatically over the last 20 years, and I've changed with it, and yet the problem for most remains.

Over the last 4 years, I've had the opportunity to work and learn from some of the greatest coaches in the world, and have created a lifestyle game that I coach you to play, and to make it even more fun, I play right along with you. 

I call it The Game of Food Freedom.

I care about you and believe that you can learn to create your own game plan, with the strategies I teach.

My approach to weight loss is more than dieting, it's about creating a life that plays on a foundation of food. Because when life and food play nice together YOU WIN!

I was trying to do keto , and only joined Food Freedom because my bugged me to do it with her. After a couple of weeks, Veras enthusiastic approach to playing with food, and her carb cycle game plan started to make more sense. The education I received was priceless, and I appreciated her honesty and that she was right there every step of the way. I think I found my game. Like coach V says all the time..... Play On! I highly recommend it.

My last diet was HCG. I was pretty sick of starving. I joined Vera because I wanted to learn how to eat real foods again. Food was a big source of stress for me, her game approach made it super fun, even my family got into it with me. I can’t believe how much energy I have now that Im eating again!!! I love Food Freedom, and wish I had started here. This I can live with! Thank you Vera for changing my life with food.

What makes Food Freedom a game?

Food Freedom is a game because:


  • Play changes you. 
  • You get to play with food, and thats fun! 
  • No more salad with the dressing on the side!
  • You get to choose what foods to eat, not some diet guru. 
  • When you screw up you don't quit, you dust yourself off and keep playing.
  • We learn, we play, we evaluate, we tweak, and we play on.

This is the best thing I ever did in my entire life! Traveling was always so hard, but Food Freedom makes it easy. I love the easy and flexibility of the game. I am maintaining a  40 pound weight loss even though I travel several times a year. Thanks Coach!

Food Freedom is a great program I have never at any point felt like I was on a diet, I will continue on playing ‘the game’. I learned so much about food, and understand why I struggled so much in the past. I’m down 15 pounds and feel like I have the answers. Thanks Vera for this life changing opportunity!


"I was never over weight, but as I got older (55ish) I developed this fat ring around my middle that I couldn't get rid of no matter how much I tried to cut back on food. Vera kept saying I needed to eat more food. I stepped in with faith, and couldn't believe my results. I lost that belly fat, and gained energy, my joints felt better, and my doc took me off blood pressure pills. I can't thank you enough Vera, I love playing the game. You rock coach!!"                                               


"Coaching with Vera has been one of the best decisions I made for me.  She has taught me to see more options and face the obstacles that used to derail me. Her honesty, straight-forward manner, and life perspectives have helped guide me through some difficult moments. She even guides me when I'm talking to myself. This program is life changing! I highly recommend you get in the game!"
