Many people resort to extreme diet trends in order to lose weight. But Valerie Cogswell, a certified nutrition coach and chef, will tell you that the secret to looking and feeling healthy is not deprivation, but properly fueling the body. The Weymouth resident, who spends much of her time cooking up delicious recipe ideas in her home kitchen, doesn’t like “diet” food. Instead, she specializes in creating all-natural, restaurant-quality dishes that deliver the perfect combination of protein, carbohydrates and fat. Eating this way balances blood sugar levels, which in turn helps burn fat, build lean muscle and boost metabolism and energy.
