Deb's Healthy Plate
Call: 203-929-9414


I battle Lyme Disease and thyroid issues. I was looking for someone that could help me improve my health and boost my immune system. I found Debbie by seeing her advertisement on her car and checked out her website and sent her an email.

I signed up for the Premium Program. She makes me a delicious meal tailored to my food preferences and an hour of information on healthy eating. I have learned alot from Debbie and have a folder full of healthy recipes to make to get my immune system strong and to lose a few pounds.

I would recommend Debbie to anyone. For people just wanting to lose a few pounds or a lot of weight or to just wanting to learn how to live a healthier lifestyle. She has alot of information to give.


“Dear Debbie, It was such a pleasure and so helpful to work with you as my nutrition/health coach this summer. I’ve always had questions about how the food I eat affects me, how my metabolism has changed in the last 5-10 years, and what were the best steps to get me started on a new path to lose weight permanently and feel better physically. I’ve had joint pain for years. When I heard that you could handle such conditions as Lupus and Hashimoto’s Disease for you and your daughter, I knew you were the one to come to. You’ve answered all my questions and more.

I now have a really usable list of foods that are good for me as well as a list of foods to avoid (and boy do I notice when/if I eat some of the wrong foods!) I’m really more in tune to eating healthy and it’s more than just “I should”, it’s become a new mindset for me for life.

Thanks for helping me make this huge transition. I’m down 15 pounds already and my joints feel better, my energy is up, and I’m really committed to staying with this for the long haul.

I have and will continue to recommend you to others. It was fun to take this journey with my sister. Now we have all new things to talk about!”
Thanks again,
Monica Leggett”

Deb is amazing. Every meal that she made for me was delicious. Each dish was different and contained new kinds of foods that I have never had before. These dishes opened my eyes to healthy eating and to making educated decisions about what I put in my body. Deb is truly a professional with a passion for helping others improve their health and overall outlook on nutrition. I would recomend anyone who has been struggling with eating healthy and who wants to educate themselves on the value of improving their nutritional habits to set up an appoinment with Deb. My diet and overall health has improved greatly and I have been put on the path to living a healthier lifestyle. Thank you Deb.

“I want to thank you for all your help in being my life coach it was a great experience.
Well, for starters I calculate that I lost about 28 lbs and I am in the process of revamping my wardrobe, now most of my pants are simply too big for me. Actually to think of it , that’s not a bad feeling.

Well, I have seen all the changes and intelligent choices I have made and I see and feel the results.
I pretty much eliminated a lot of my bad food choices and had focused on eating what is healthy.
I guess the 28 pound loss is testimony to that . In addition I feel and have so much more energy and and-overall positive attitude.
I also found under your guidance I have began eating smaller more nutritional meals and have begun to also eat a variety of different foods that previously I would never have tried.

Well again Debbie I want to thank you for all your help and I look forward to losing more weight and enjoying a more energetic and healthy life style.”

“PS. I also found out that by eating more nutritious food I am not as hungry as often. And that is a good thing!”

“I came to Debbie at an upside-down time in my life. I was emotionally drained and struggling with an increasing waistline which dragged me down even more. I felt I needed something more than a “diet”. Debbie has inspired me and uplifted me after each session. The nutritious homemade food she makes is delightful and our session is like having a cup of tea with an old friend. Debbie has helped me achieve balance in my life and recently inspired me to give Yoga a try. Through her inspiration and joy of life I have now been able to get back on track with my weight-loss by using all the healthy lifestyle suggestions she has shared and taught me. One of the nutritious foods she has introduced me to is quinoa, which is delicious, and now appears weekly on “my healthy plate”.  I plan on continuing into the next phase of her integrative nutrition program and look forward to a healthy future. Thank you Debbie”.

“I met Debbie at Weight Watchers. She was my instructor and the most uplifting, upbeat and very motivating speakers I have ever met. She drew many people in week after week. I did lose weight on this program but because of my hypo-thyroid, I struggled with keeping it off as well as staying energized.

When Debbie began her Health and Life Coaching business, I decided to meet with her for a consultation and joined her 6 Month Program. I discovered she could really steer me in the right direction. Debbie got me on track with whole foods and supplements that support a healthy thyroid. Additionally, by explaining some irregular symptoms regarding my stomach, she realized that certain foods and products that contain gluten could be causing the issues. She has helped me feel great and has taught me how to think about the foods and products I use every day. Her positive attitude, willingness to focus on the individual and persistence to pin point the proper food for your mind and body is very inspiring! Thank you Deb.”

“I have been a client of Debbie’s for the past five months. I am so grateful to have her as my Health Coach. Her ability to listen and be quiet is one of the greatest things about her, it makes me feel comfort and appreciated for all I have to say even when it sometimes feels like nonsense. Through that she gives me the best support and encouragement anyone could ask for. I feel better every time I talk to her. 🙂 ~ Ryan Balog, Florida

“Debbie has a wonderful skill of hearing the “best” in me. She has guided me gently yet with conviction, reminding me of my strengths, my duty to myself, and of my need to stay true to my path towards becoming not only a health coach, but my highest dream of myself. She keeps me on track, and pulls out the vital information for us/me to focus on from session to session. Thank you, Debbie!”

“Debbie has been an increasingly powerful health coach to me. Over the course of 5 months, our sessions have progressed to a more meaningful and helpful level. I always come away from each session with new helpful ideas and thoughts, and look forward to the subsequent session! I highly recommend her!”

Debbie Katz, VA

“I love working with Deb as my health coach because she pushes me to set goals for myself and hold myself accountable for reaching them. She is very helpful during our sessions and knows just when to say something or when to let me talk my way through it. She has definitely made my experience with health coaching a positive one and it helps me want to help others as well.’

Debbie has been such an inspirational health coach. She has pushed me outside of my comfort zone when I needed a push, she has listened to me when I needed an ear, she makes me believe when I have doubt and she makes me believe I can do whatever I put my mind to! Thank you Debbie! ~ Sandy Pallotta

“Deb’s has been a great support and inspirational to me during my journey as a student. She is always very knowledgeable, positive, energetic. She has great ideas and very helpful. I am so happy that I have Debbie to guide me through this exciting year! Thanks again. Rajika”

“I enjoyed Debbie as a Weight Watchers Leader, which is how I got to know her. But that is just the tip of the iceberg! She is a warm personable, knowledgeable Health Coach who has the ability to motivate you, cheer you on and be a wonderful example of healthy living to follow.

She gently leads you in a more healthful direction. sitting and chatting with Debbie is like a big hug for your soul! She keeps things very upbeat and encourages you as you move along on your journey.

She gets to know you well and remembers from session to session things that are important to you. She is a wonderful listener and you know she is authentic in that she herself has been there. Much of what we discuss; losing weight, getting through tough times, are things that she has worked through herself and with success. She can help you get there too!.”
