Aurea Lara has been my health coach for over two years. She knew she was dealing with a post menopausal woman with a life of weight issues and a chronic health problem. The changes over the past two years have been fairly dramatic. I no longer need the medication for the chronic health problem because it has completely healed! AND, I’m consistently losing weight (and keeping it off) for the first time in over ten years.

What is Aurea’s secret? There isn’t one. It is common sense based on constant research, good natural organic foods and how food works for her individual clients. She has a warmth and enthusiasm that stays low-key to assure you have the support without a cheerleader or bellowing coach.

You want to find the way to cleaner eating, more energy and less physical ailments? Aurea is your guide!

Aurea is a very knowledgeable and supportive health coach. She helped me overcome my sugar cravings by recommending satisfying alternatives and also through her constant encouragement. She is a great resource for learning about new health foods, demystifying any health fads, and figuring out which foods are best for your own body. Through our conversations and her blog posts, I have learned an incredible amount about nourishing my body properly, and in taking all her advice, the results have been truly amazing for me, both physically and mentally. Over the course of 7 months, I have lost almost 15 pounds, my acne has cleared up significantly, and my self-confidence continues to grow. This gradual progress has allowed me to simply enjoy my life while losing some weight, rather than making the process a chore. It is Aurea’s dedication to helping me not only better my physical health, but also my self-esteem, that has helped me and makes me want to continue with this new healthy lifestyle. Thank you, Aurea!

Aurea has been a life-saver!!! I cannot sing her praises more! She is supportive and committed to helping me achieve my goals. I lost 35 pounds(!!) working with her over the course of 3 months. It was amazing! The program she created was specifically designed to help my body shed the excess weight (relatively) easily. I learned how to de-mystify my food cravings and am now able to understand what my body is really asking for! All it really took was her guidance and support, the rest was just eating REAL food. I actually learned how to tell the difference between what is truly healthy and good for my body and what is only labeled 'healthy'. I feel so much better in my skin! I LOVE myself in a whole new way. I have more energy. My skin looks amazing!!! And it all started with one conversation!! Thank you so much, Aurea!!!!

Certified Holistic Health Coach, Institute for Integrative Nutrition, New York, NY 

  • studied all the major dietary theories
  • use practical lifestyle coaching methods
  • guide you in discovering your truest and fullest self.

Most approaches to nutrition dwell on calories, carbs, fats, proteins. I don't believe in lists. I don't believe in guilt. I KNOW, from personal experience, that traditional dieting doesn't work. They end up making one feel worse than when we started. I coach my clients to be knowledgeable of what they are putting into their bodies and to listen to their inner voice. Your body knows what it needs to heal itself! My work is to educate you and empower you with the right tools for you to be able to listen to your body.

No one diet works for everyone. I will guide you to discover the food and lifestyle choices that best support you and your life. I will also help you make gradual, sustainable lifelong changes that enable you to reach your current and future health goals.
