Lily was a terrific speaker and I would have her back again in a heartbeat! It was easily the BEST presentation on prenatal nutrition we’ve hosted thus far. She really knows her stuff and it shows. Lily has a great speaking style, very low key and clear. She does not rely heavily on notes/slides and seems to be very comfortable on stage, which comes across to the audience. I’d recommend her to anyone needing education around prenatal nutrition and/or pregnancy and diabetes.

– Miriam Erdosi, MSW, Associate Director Program Services, March of Dimes, California Chapter

Lily has spoken for our group numerous times on topics related to prenatal nutrition and gestational diabetes. She is professional, sincere, passionate and engaging. She always follows through and gives more than is required. Feedback from our attendees has been overwhelmingly positive. We will certainly invite her to speak at future conferences.

– Joann Henry, RN, MSHS, CEO of SSEP (Sweet Success Extension Program)

I recently invited Lily to speak to my group, BabyTalkLA. Having never met Lily before, I did not know what her presentation style would be. She was very easy to follow, addressed attendee questions, and seemed to make all the mothers to be in the room feel comfortable. I would absolutely recommend Lily as a speaker. She is great as a session leader and I know she would be fantastic one-on-one. She does a great job of figuring out what each individual is interested in and addresses those needs. When you work with Lily, you know you are getting someone who is an expert in this very specific field—exercise and nutrition, prenatal and postpartum.

– Vanessa Karubian Saxe, Founder of BabyTalkLA, Los Angeles, CA

I attended several of the talks that Lily gave at the Diabetes and Pregnancy National Research Conference last month in Anaheim. I wanted to say thank you! I thought that the information that you provided on Vitamin D and pregnancy and lactation was really interesting and very applicable to the population that I work with on a daily basis. Thank you again for all the great information.

– Allison Tallyn, RD

What workshop attendees are saying:


JaneGuerraI love Lily’s honesty and great sense of humor during her workshops. She keeps it simple, breaking down very complicated functions of the body in a way that I can understand and remember. I knew that I needed to make a change to my morning routine, and Lily explained it so clearly that I will never forget! It’s now automatic. I would recommend Lily to any of my clients looking to clear up all the confusion and misinformation about nutrition. She patiently answered questions and never pushed a product on us. Expect it to be fun and informative. You will walk away ready to start!

Also, I had been struggling with bloating, and it is now gone after I switched to the bread recommendation she made. I can’t believe it was that simple!

– Jane Guerra, Pilates Instructor, Co-owner at HALE Pilates Method, Redondo Beach, CA

Lily’s ability to share pertinent information that can be easily implemented was wonderful to experience. She was amazingly able to answer some complicated questions and offer great options and suggestions as well. I would recommend anyone who is fascinated by how the body works get to one of Lily’s workshops to find out more about food and digestion in general. You will find it a safe place to share your body’s challenges and get an educated view of what might be going on and options to improve your situation and ultimately achieve better digestive health.

– Sally Kraus, Professional Coach, Los Angeles, CA

Marie-RenosoLily is very educated in the field of nutrition. She makes nutrition easy to understand, and learning FUN! She’s a believer in EATING, not starving yourself. Also, she is not a vegan, or vegetarian, so you don’t have to worry about her convincing you to not eat meat. In case you don’t know I have lost 7 lbs by applying what I have learned from these workshops, and I have changed my eating habits drastically.

– Marie Reynoso, Pilates Instructor and Studio Owner, Los Angeles, CA

It’s great knowing a nutritionist who’s on my side. Lily combines her super-smarts with real-world living, and it’s a breath of fresh air. The price of the workshop will pay for itself over and over again, since I learned things I can use for the rest of my life. Lily addressed more than I would ever think to ask. I didn’t know how much I didn’t know about the digestive system. I also loved that she brought in examples of real food to buy and make at home, so I know exactly what to look for in the grocery store.

The group of attendees that Lily cultivates from her medical, PT, yoga and pilates circles is unique and awesome; she creates a workshop atmosphere that is friendly, conversational and educational. I wondered if I would have anything in common at all with the other attendees. I definitely did, and indirectly learned things from them, too. It’s cool to just know that there are other normal people — who are relatively healthy — who are also looking for information and answers.

– Dana Williamson, Writer, Los Angeles, CA

KristinMcLaughlinI left Lily’s nutrition workshop feeling inspired to make positive changes to my eating habits and armed with the necessary knowledge to do so. Lily is able to translate the confusing chemistry surrounding nutrition into practical information that I can take with me to my next meal. She gave realistic solutions to personal questions and busted a few myths for us.

This workshop is for all levels (I thought I was pretty healthy, but there’s always more to learn). Lily’s passion for what she does is contagious and her knowledge is undeniable; I only wish we had more time!

– Kristin McLaughlin, Graduate Student

Coming from being a division I athlete, I thought I knew a lot about how to stay healthy after college. This Nutrition Workshop busted a ton of myths that I had regarding healthy living. Lily turned the complication of nutrition into simple steps and now I find myself walking into a grocery store with more confidence than I’ve ever had!

– Kirra Kylander, Graduate Student

Before seeing Lily, I felt like I had to count every calorie, weigh and measure all of my food intake to maintain my weight. Lily helped me gain freedom in my eating habits by listening and trusting the cues my body gives me. She showed me how to use food to sustain my energy levels throughout my intense workouts, replacing my body with what it needs. You can read all the books you want, but all that knowledge doesn’t make a difference if you don’t know how to apply it. I’m so grateful to Lily for her guidance and wisdom.

– C. S., Pilates Instructor

Juli LindseyI took a workshop with Lily a month ago and it has radically changed my understanding of food and how to intelligently fuel my body. I find myself referring back to her teachings on a daily basis. I highly recommend her workshops.
