Nutrition

My philosophy on nutrition.

"I am here to help you make long-term changes to your eating pattern and nutritional intake."

As your nutritionist...

I am here to help you make long-term changes to your eating pattern and nutritional intake. I don’t support short-term solutions such as fad diets; low-fat, low carbohydrate, high protein diets, or fad diets that focus on one particular food, such as grapefruit or cabbage. These diets lack major nutrients, such as dietary fiber, carbohydrates, as well as certain vitamins, minerals and protective phytochemicals. If you do not receive the proper amounts of these nutrients, you will develop serious health problems later in life. Some common claims these diets make include blaming particular hormones for weight gain, suggesting that food can change body chemistry, or touting or banning a particular food. However, they all have one thing in common: They offer only a temporary solution to what for many people is a lifelong problem. Once the diet is stopped, the lost weight is usually regained quickly, since none of the diets teach behavior modification.

As your supportive nutrition coach, I will develop a nutrition plan based on your goals and your lifestyle. We will address not only what you eat, but also when and how you eat throughout the day, because this affects your energy level, your weight and your metabolism. While you make the necessary nutritional changes, I will provide strategies for overcoming obstacles.

After your goals are achieved, whether they include weight loss, cholesterol lowering, managing menopause, or just learning how to eat right, I will monitor you by setting our appointments every 3-4 months for moral support and to keep you the right track. Maintaining new eating habits over the long term takes effort. Continuing to see me a few times a year helps you deal with lapses when they occur, not after they accumulate.

I have trained with Bea for the past 10 years. She is truly amazing and special. I so appreciate her knowledge of the human body and her attention to details. Being a professional performer, she has helped me stay fit and healthy. Do not miss the Beatrice experience. Your body will thank you for it.

Bernard H.

I’ve been training and exercising with Bea for 25+ years. We joked that I was the strongest woman in the gym, but seriously- feeling strong is empowering. Bea is encouraging, knowledgeable, and persistent. And her classes are FUN!

Eileen O.

Doing Bea’s Interactive live workout via Zoom is the next best thing to being there in person. It has gotten me into a healthy routine and has helped me build strength while losing several pounds. Love it!

Caroline Z.

I have been doing weight training with Bea as well as taking her classes for over 20 years. She is the best! Her extensive knowledge of the human body, enthusiasm and great choice of music makes working out fun and something I actually look forward to. Great virtual exercise classes on Zoom!

Kay C.

The best, most invigorating classes I have ever attended!  She's fantastic; motivating, inspiring, and has me feeling like I'm 25 again!

Art H.

Beatrice is a great dancer and a great trainer. She’s very personable, reliable and reasonable with lots of knowledge for what we need. I have been exercising with her for over 20 years and I still love her classes the best!!

Kuni T.

What I enjoy about Bea’s classes is her fun and “dancey” cardio routines. I used to take aerobics for many years and stopped because after a while I found them boring and repetitive. Bea’s cardio is a great workout and NEVER boring.

Elaine S.

Beatrice’s virtual exercise classes are fun, and they offer the same intensive professional quality you would find in her in-person classes. I like the convenience or working out virtually at home or anywhere, knowing I will get the same attention as if Beatrice was right there with me.
