How to get healthy

Helping over 30,000 people get healthy through The Decadent Detox® and Skinny60® health programs is one of the great joys of my life.

Through my work as The Blender Girl, I have traveled the world speaking, teaching classes, and working with companies.

I have met thousands of people who share their struggles to stay on track with healthy eating.

I love creating delicious recipes that get people excited about eating vegetables! But, it's also really important to get personalized nutrition advice from medical practitioners who can give you science-based, data-driven information, and help you customize your eating to meet your specific needs. This is what my dietitians do!

You also need community. A safe support network of peers to listen and cheer you on. And the secret sauce is believing in yourself.

What I have realized through speaking with thousands of people during my weekly office hours each week, is this:

The way you choose to nourish yourself (or not) is a direct reflection of how you treat yourself in the rest of your life.

Once you tap into your belief that you deserve the very best, it is GAME ON, and you never look back!

My superpower is helping people believe they can do anything, and that is what I do in my programs.

And, it is SO exciting to see what happens when you put delicious food, credible science-based nutrition information, medical practitioners, community support, and a lot of love.

I hope to see you in my 14-Day Cleanse or 60-Day Reset so I can help you get strong and healthy so you can enjoy your life.

I can't rave enough about the Skinny60 program. The food is absolutely incredible. It is such an amazing feeling to know there was something out there that could offer me relief besides all of the meds I was taking. I’m sleeping better, I have more energy, and my skin is better. My inflammation and pain is down. I haven’t had a Lupus flare in two years, and I take less meds now. And, I’ve lost 38 pounds!  This totally changed my life.

This is by far the most supportive program I have ever been in. Tess and her dietitians want you to succeed,  and they hold your hand through the entire experience. Because I was eating good food, my face cleared up, the inflammation in my body disappeared, my energy levels got much higher, and I didn’t experience the depression from menopause any more. I felt like I got back to being myself - the “happy-go-lucky” Janis. I really love the “Good, Better, Best, Not Perfect” philosophy of Skinny60, and now use that at work and other areas of my life.

I was so blessed to have so much support from Tess, the dietitians, and all of the wonderful people in the program during my cancer treatment. A year later I feel fantastic, and my medical team declared me “cancer-free”. This program helped me improve every aspect of my health. My doctors asked me what I was doing to make such amazing progress and changes in such a short period of time! This has truly been a transformational experience.

This has been a life-changing experience. I lost 38 pounds, my BMI is down, I'm off my blood pressure medication, I have more energy, I sleep better at night, and I feel good about myself. I have learned so much, and every recipe was absolutely delicious. You can’t lose with the knowledge, support, and guidance from Tess. She brings it to you in such a loving, giving way. The time she spends with you every step of the way to ensure you get amazing results is absolutely priceless.

This experience has really given me a new life! I’m sleeping so well, have so much energy, sugar cravings are gone, triglycerides down over 50 points, cholesterol is better, and I lost weight. The recipes are so delicious. I’ve never tasted so many unbelievable flavors. Tess is such a great coach, encourages you, and just wants you to be your best and grow. This is not just a nutrition program. It’s a reset for your whole being. I am so much more confident, and feel like I can do anything! At 65, I feel like I am finally starting to bloom.
