Founders of Team DiCristo
Chris and Pamela began their journey together 2 years ago. Pamela, a Southern Chef, born and raised in Atlanta, GA, and Chris, a Professional Fitness Trainer, from South Jersey.
Not necessarily a match made in heaven... fitness and health, vs a southern chef specializing in comfort food.
While their differences were very clear, there were many things that brought them together.
Having struggled with being over-weight since childhood, Pamela and Chris shared some of the same experiences growing up. It's no wonder their Trainer/Client relationship turned into a beautiful friendship, that developed into an amazing partnership. With a fitness goal that required Pamela to lose over 150 pounds, she and Coach Chris began working together on a menu of healthy foods that she would actually enjoy eating.
With the mindset that it is possible to eat healthy, and enjoy what you are eating, the Southern Chef, and the Fitness Trainer got to work. Researching and learning about product knowledge was key in developing a healthy format that was easy to follow.
As a member of Team DiCristo, you are required to document everything you eat in your food journal. This particular step was the motivation needed to begin working on something that would eventually become the "DiCristo Fitness Meal Guide". As they got into the "Test Kitchen" Pamela began developing recipes, using only the healthiest ingredients to create the healthiest meals.
The most important key was being able to identify good food vs bad food, and good food vs healthy food. This process unraveled information and ideas that really connected with both Pamela and Chris.
The idea was to keep things simple and easy to follow, but most importantly easy to commit to. Mission accomplished! Not only did they celebrate an 85 pound weight-loss within the first year, but were able to develop a very natural formula of food and fitness.
Two people from opposite backgrounds merged their love for food with a passion for health and wellness, and there
you have the founding members of Team DiCristo.
I CAN. I WILL. I BELIEVE.
