About Teri Rose, MS, LN

“In my opinion, we’ve lost sight of the common thread that influences everything.”


Making a therepuetic lifestyle doable

Every single hour of the day you are exposed to yet another new tidbit or suggestion for how to lose weight, how to have more energy, how to sleep better, how to age better, what new super food to try, what new diet to try, what diet to try again.  This information is available from everyone.  Everyone has an opinion about nutrition – you, the guy at the gym, one million plus websites and blogs (present company included), thousands of book authors – everyone.  So much information is great, right?


Every new day and every new suggestion presents you with another chance.  This part is good. Paralyzing confusion from too much information is not. But once we take a deep breath, we remember that there is a common thread that simplifies the true golden key to health and vitality.


Each symptom we wish would decrease (i.e. weight and inflammation) or each symptom we wish would increase (i.e. energy and immunity) is influenced the same wayby optimizing the function of our individual cells.


We can’t control everything that affects how our cells function, but we can control diet and lifestyle choices.  And we can support every cell, whether in the stomach, liver, brain or heart, the same way:

1.  Eliminate substances that damage

2.  Provide sufficient nutrients to heal


I am here to help you do this.  My goal is to make a therapeutic lifestyle doable.


To regain your health (and to support the functioning of all those cells), you are going to have to commit to consistently eating a diet:

   Rich in fibers and nutrients

   Rich in a variety of fruits and vegetables

   And balanced to restore your healthy body weight


You are also going to have to commit to a lifestyle that includes:


   Stress management



This is the basic foundation that is essential for everyone to establish.  This is the commonality of all health goals – that common thread that influences everything.

I disagree with statements that say ‘no one diet is right for everyone’.

Everyone benefits from a whole foods, produce-based, balanced diet. Everyone benefits from activity and stress management.  Everyone benefits from focusing their attention on what to add versus what to restrict.


Sounds simple, right? I know it’s not. Real life has gotten in the way of our real health goals.  Too little time, too much stress, and too many temptations make us default to what is easy and what we know – even when we know better.  And this is why I started Perfectly Produce and our CARE Weight Loss & Lifestyle Program.  I love guiding people, step-by-step, on where to start and how to do this for a lifetime – a real lifetime.


I know time is the most valuable and hardest resource to find, so I am devoted to helping you by:


1.  Consolidating the overwhelming amount of health information into one simplified source, right here.

2.  Providing you with affordable, direct access to myself and others so you get personalized help, when it’s convenient for you.

3.  Meeting you where you to avoid sudden (temporary) changes; there is an alternative to all-or-nothing mentality.


I want to try and help ease your path by applying what I’ve learned from my own – both formally through my training and informally through trial and error in my own kitchen.  We can do this together.
