SAN FRANCISCO (PRWEB) February 25, 2008
Dennis Allio had been searching for years for a solution to his own long-term weight problems. As Manuel's client, he achieved such tremendous and lasting success that he decided to combine his technological skills with Manuel's personalized nutrition advice to make it available to everyone online.
"Nutrition for You's online program captures what made Manuel's offline practice so successful: his knowledge and experience, the ongoing feedback he provides his clients, and the personal touch of having a Nutrition coach to motivate and inform," said Allio.
Manuel Villacorta, is a professional and passionate nutritionist who empowers people to make the necessary lifestyle changes for a longer, healthier life. Manuel works closely with various organizations including San Francisco AIDS Foundation for the AIDS/LifeCycle and the San Francisco AIDS Marathon, Glide Memorial United Methodist Church (meal program for the homeless), and is a spokesperson for Foster Farms Poultry.
As featured on ABC/7 TV and KGO ABC Radio 810am in San Francisco, Nu4You.net makes weight management sustainable by offering a combination of 21st Century nutritional science, powerful online tools and attentive, helpful nutritionists available by phone.
The Weight-Loss Program with Lasting Results
At Nutrition for You, members are advised to make sustainable changes. They are shown exactly how much they should be eating per day to achieve and sustain healthy weight-loss.
"Quick weight-loss through unbalanced nutrition is not only hard on the body, it leads to cravings and hunger pangs, and often leads to binge eating as the body tries to regain the nutrients it needs," Villacorta explains. "A lot of quick weight reduction is from muscle and fluid loss caused by incomplete or unbalanced nutrition."
Working with Manuel helped Allio to understand how the right foods in the right amounts could lead to healthy, sustainable weight loss over time. "I never felt hungry, still ate my favorite foods, and felt healthier than ever before," said Allio.
"Everyone wants to see fast results. But, if the body thinks it is starving, it will begin to lower metabolism so it doesn't burn food as quickly. This can actually lead to weight gain even though you are eating less! This is why so many dieters get discouraged," Villacorta explained.
