“Participating in the Fresh Start program has been easy and extremely tasty. I’ve tried many meal plans in the past but this was the first that my family was willing to participate in with me because the dishes and ingredients are not foreign. The best part of Fresh Start is connecting with the online community. Everyone is encouraging and prayerful; it’s one big family.”
— Rachel Maldonado, Florida

“I live in chronic pain and I have diabetes. I have never been good at taking care of myself. Through Bess’ kind and loving encouragement, I was able to start making real progress in my energy levels and my desires to change. I was able to turn lifestyle changes into habits. I truly believe that Bess’ Fresh Start program is a gift from our Great Physician.”

What is our "Approach?" 

Here at FRESH Start for Health, our approach is based on simple, practical habit-change principles that you can apply to create your lasting healthy lifestyle.

We partner with you by holding a grace-driven view of taking small healthy steps to build lasting lifestyles for wholeness. Believing in and teaching whole-health habits, using the most natural means possible.

Everything we do is to empower you to meet the needs of your body, mind and spirit for total health and wellness through FRESH foods, mindset and daily habits. Realizing and respecting that each person’s unique situation affects their individual eating plan and needs, we tailor our coaching, materials and classes to meet those needs.
