Fat Blasting Pumpkin Pie

St Pete Personal Trainer Approved Pumpkin Pie 

Happy Humpday from your St Pete Personal Training Team here at Fitness St Pete & Tierra Verde Fitness.  For our newsletter subscribers and Transform St Pete Members, Wednesday is also known as “What’s Cooking Wednesday” .


Thanks to the newest addition to our Team, Coach Pete, I’ve had lots of extra time to create more content  along with our 21 Day Hot For The Holidays Challenge starting Nov 27th and I have really appreciated all of your wonderful feed back from our facebook lives, blog posts and emails and have been working hard to create the content you have asked for.


One of the biggest requests has been Holiday Recipes and snack ideas . I’ve got 5 of my fav coming up for the members of our FREE, Private Facebook Community Transform St Pete but one of my private clients showed me this one today that her chef came up with and I got permission to share it …


Let’s face it this time of year, Frankensweets are everywhere. First it was processed candy for Halloween and  next comes deserts.


Most desserts are packed with refined sugars and inflammatory oils, artificial flavors, gluten, and worse – all of which contribute to a whole host of health problems , weight gain and insane sugar cravings.


You COULD follow the advice in checkout-aisle magazines and all the fitness “experts” that scream, “Give up everything delicious this time of year so you don’t get fat!” or you COULD let me teach you how to “eat smarter not less” ; starting with this recipe.


You know what happens when you rely on willpower, don’t you? At some point, you find yourself  scarfing up every dessert and junk food in sight.


Eating delicious food is human and deprivation doesn’t work.


So, instead of fighting it, go for  it. Enjoy a big slice of pie on Thanksgiving with this fat blasting  Pumpkin Pie recipe that will have everyone coming back for seconds…

“I joined because I was fed up with the ups and downs of extreme dieting. I was scared because I was not sure I could handle the workouts. I lost 6” and 4 lbs during the Holidays !

I was used to starving myself to lose weight, so at first the meal plan felt like I was cheating. But it is so doable and realistic way to live. It is not a diet…..it is a meal plan for life!

I have more endurance and I am starting to be able to push my workouts to the next level.”

Hello, my name is Dianne Villano. I help busy men and women over 35 who struggle to look and feel their best and teach them how to eat more, train less, and get better results than they’ve ever experienced.

Raving Fans

"I didn’t think this weight loss program would be so easy! I dropped 20 pounds eating deliscious foods and working out 3X/week. I know I keep saying that but it’s true! At 63 years old I thought I’d never look and feel this good again! Seriously, I feel like 40 now" - Pattie A, Tierra Verde, Fl

"As a 10X full Ironman finisher, I foolishly came in thinking it would be easy given my background and boy was I wrong. Every time you think you’re getting the hang of it Dianne adds an extra twist to increase the difficulty . I lost 10 lbs and my strength increased." - Tony S , St Pete. Fl

"I had my doubts when I came in on the 14 day rapid results program, however I have become a true believer in the program. In 2 weeks, I had already begun seeing results, both physically and mentally. I feel better, make healthier food choices (most of the time), and am excited for every workout. I thoroughly enjoy the group setting and I appreciate the opportunity to develop new friendships with the other group members!" - Caren, St Pete

"After interviewing a number of different trainers, I met Dianne. My initial impression was that she was knowledgeable in her field and extremely enthusiastic. Being a physician, it was very important that I work with a trainer that had a solid understanding of the science behind the exercises, understood the importance of a multifaceted approach to to a wellness a lifestyle, including not only the physical exercise regimen but also the n nutritional and psychological aspects of their client in order to help them achieve a sustainable, healthy lifestyle for the long haul The bottom line is this: If you a are serious and committed to getting yourself in shape and developing a healthy a and sustainable nutrition and fitness program, then Custom Bodies is where you need to go….It’s as simple as that." - Dr. Michael Sprintz
