The Nourish Story

While working in a medical practice for 35 years, Deb saw clients struggling to achieve long-term weight loss. She saw them yo-yo dieting as a result of consuming fake food diets and short-sighted calorie restriction; only to gain the weight back, and then some. Not only an issue with patients in the clinic, with 38% of ALL adults and 17% of all teens in the U.S. suffering from obesity, clearly this is a country wide epidemic.

Rather than implementing one of the many diet programs based on shakes, frozen dinners and nutrition bars, Deb and her team wanted more for their clients. With a holistic approach in mind, they designed The Nourish Program as a way of life — a lifestyle, not just an eating program.

With real food as the premise, Nourish is also based on scientific testing and the understanding of how food choices affect your body at the cellular level. The program also addresses the underlying causes of poor eating habits such as stress and anxiety — the real culprits.

With headquarters in Bloomington, IL the Nourish team has continued their expansion to the east coast in Massachusetts with several more Nourish clinics across the US in the works.


“I have gone from a size 20 to a 14. My IBS is gone as well.  I had no idea how the food I was eating was affecting me. Also no longer need to take my Pepcid. Yeah!”

Brenda R.,  Age 48

“I haven’t felt this good in 10 years! I was living on soda crackers due to stomach issues and was in so much pain that I didn’t want to get out of bed. I am now back to enjoying life, I can sit down with my family and eat a meal. That didn’t happen before I joined the Nourish Program. I am happy to have my life back!”

Dede V., Age 47

“My weight loss was slow at the beginning and my coach kept talking to me about portion sizes and the “WHY” of my eating. I finally got it and when I truly measured out my portions and got real with it—BAM!  I have dropped 11 pounds in the last 5 weeks. My coach was supportive and patient with me and held me accountable all in a loving way. I now understand I was eating way too big of portions and felt I had to feel full to the brim instead of satisfied. Not only do I feel better physically and mentally my grocery bill has been cut in half!”

Amy N., Age 26

“I didn’t realize how bad I felt until I started feeling good. Yes, the weight has come off but I feel so good, energetic, sleeping better, more alert. I had no idea how all the processed, fast food was affecting me. I love eating real food now and preparing my meals. My husband has lost 3 inches around his waist as well (and that is just from him eating what I am eating)  this truly is my lifestyle now, Thank you Nourish!”

Pam T., Age 54

“I have lost 38 pounds and reached my goal weight. It was a consistent drop of 1-2 pounds a week. I know I will keep it off as my whole lifestyle has changed. I feel good that my child is now going to grow up with better habits than I had. As a family we are eating real food, cut out the processed food and control our portion sizes. I have never felt better.”

Blythe B., Age 37

“I have lost 50 pounds of fat in 6 months, I am back to running and exercising without any issues.  I had tried dieting before and would get bored and quit. Nourish allowed me to eat anything I wanted but taught me about moderation, portion and mindfulness.”
