Feel healthy, confident, and powerful again.
So you can have the career and life you really want.
IMAGINE HAVING YOUR OWN PERSONAL "PLAYBOOK" FOR EATING BETTER, EXERCISING MORE, GETTING MORE SLEEP, AND KICKING THE HABITS THAT HAVE GOTTEN YOU OUT OF SHAPE AND OUT OF SORTS.
A doable, realistic plan that would always guide you back to the healthy, confident, ENERGETIC version of you in your mind’s eye – no matter what life throws at you.
This playbook would give you...
- A straightforward, REAL approach to eating that doesn’t ignore the fact that you've got a to-do list 100 items long, a social life to maintain, and/or a family schedule to manage
- Practical tools for being healthy and happy – things that fit into your already busy schedule – so you can raise amazing kids, rock your charity fundraiser, or run a company that makes the world a better place (or all of the above)
- Clarity and confidence about your food choices, so you never again waste 20 minutes staring in confusion at the organic, gluten-free, free range, and hormone-free options at the grocery store (and end up throwing a frozen skillet meal in your cart while promising yourself you’ll “start fresh” tomorrow)
- A balanced – and sane – approach to taking care of your body and managing your weight… no more restrictive eating plans or extreme workout routines
- Ways to set aside time for YOU (for exercise, taking photos with your new camera, getting a mani/pedi) so you can take care of your loved ones’ needs without feeling cranky (and like you’re always last on the priority list)
And it would be uniquely yours – customized to you, your body, and your life. Sounds pretty great, right? Let’s create your Vibrant Health Playbook together!
You and me, lady. Exploring what kinds of food, exercise, sleep, etc. YOUR body needs (it’s different for everyone!) and sorting out how to mold it into a system you can use over and over again… no matter what life throws your way (or how busy you are).
A guided 10-week program to uncover your personalized Vibrant Health Playbook – with two levels of support, Standard or VIP. (Scroll down the page for more details on your options.)
On the phone + the computer (to access your handouts, program videos, session recordings, and other fun stuff).
Click one of those big buttons on the page below to set up a free discovery call with me. We'll sort out if this is a good fit for you.
You’re a busy and successful woman, up to big (or soon-to-be-big) things in the world.
People rely on you for your brains and talent, and you’re proud of what you’ve accomplished and excited about what you’ve yet to do.
There’s just one problem that keeps nagging at you…
You feel flabby, frazzled, and downright frumpy.
And you know it’s affecting your ability to have, be, and do ALL that you are meant for in life. You keep promising yourself you’ll start eating healthier, exercising more, getting more sleep, and kicking the habits that have gotten you out of shape and out of sorts.
Yet you’re still no closer to where you want to be.
And who could blame you?
You have a busy schedule. It’s not like you have time to research the best eating or exercise plans – let alone implement them. You can’t spend hours in the kitchen preparing healthy meals, and something always comes up to prevent you from getting to that exercise class you keep meaning to take.
Then there’s the “eating out” thing. You need to go to dinner with clients – or you want to go to dinner with friends. And everyone knows it’s hard to stay healthy and slim on restaurant food! (Unless you want to forgo all the fun and chew on your tasteless salad while your dinner companions clean out the breadbasket.)
And then there’s the fact that, if you’re really honest with yourself, you don’t feel all that motivated. Somewhere along the line, you lost touch with that vibrant woman inside – the one who could conquer the world. In fact, when you look in the mirror, it’s almost hard to believe the reflection staring back at you (whose arms are those, anyway?) is… well, YOU.
So... maybe it's time for a new story, no?
I'm Lara Dalch, health and wellness coach for smart women like you.
And if you're nodding your head to any or all of the above, I can tell you that you're NOT alone. I can also tell you...
You have it within you to become the most vibrant, healthy and beautiful version of yourself - inside and out.
The catch? It won't happen by accident.
And that's where I come in.
Imagine having a personal health "playbook" - something you could grab from the shelf anytime you felt confused about what it takes to be the energetic, sparkling YOU that you see in your mind's eye.
You know the "you" I mean...
- The one who's rocking your presentations at work...
- Playing on the beach with your family, feeling confident in your new bathing suit...
- Enjoying girls' nights out with your BFFs - looking strong and beautiful in your little black dress...
- Sleeping like a baby at night (no 3am heart palpitations)
- And waking up every day with plenty of energy and excitement for life
Yeah. THAT you.
What if you had a "playbook" as unique as you to guide you to becoming that "you" faster and easier than you ever thought possible? (And find her if you ever temporarily "lose" her again.)
I'll help you create your very own health "playbook."
I know what it's like to be too busy and distracted to take care of your health - and I know how it feels to transform that (and what it opens up in life!). In college, I basically subsisted on Pop Tarts, Lipton noodles (you know, the ones with 10 million unpronounceable ingredients?), unidentified cafeteria fare, and, well, beer (natch).
After struggling with severe acne, falling grades, and multiple depressive episodes, I stumbled upon whole food, organics, simple home and body care practices , and more, quite by accident.
When I started making small changes in my pantry, on my plate, and in my habits, I noticed a BIG difference in the quality of my life. While I hadn’t set out to change anything dramatic in my life, dramatic changes occurred.
I began to feel more vibrant. More alive. More in tune with my body and the world around me.
And then I started to notice that my life was changing.
My career took off. I got into Pilates and got back into running. My social life improved, my skin began to clear up, and (while I still have normal human emotions!) my depressive episodes became a thing of the past.
Because I saw the impact of these changes on my life, I decided to go back to school to learn to help others experience these same transformations.
Since then, I've been helping women like you get their health, vitality and confidence back for years, and I know how to guide you to get big results with a lot less effort than you might think.
And I felt called to create something special that would have you looking in the mirror a couple short months from now and seeing a healthy, strong, energetic woman looking back at you.
Enter Vibrant Health Playbook
Your personalized guide to the most vibrant, healthy, confident, and beautiful version of you.
This is no ordinary health program. (Because YOU are no ordinary woman.)
Let’s face it: you’ve already tried cookie-cutter diet programs. You’ve sweated your way through kickboxing, spinning, aerobics (how very 80’s of you!), and weekend bootcamps. You may have even taken a crack at Weight Watchers or Jenny Craig. But you come away feeling uninspired, like a number on the instructor’s attendance list.
You wonder why none of it works for you in the long run, even though you may have dropped weight and felt amazing (for a while).
I’ll tell you why. Because you’re uniquely YOU.
You were NOT made by a cookie cutter… and neither was your body. That’s why “one size fits all” just ain’t gonna cut it.
You need someone who listens to YOU. Who understands the unique challenges YOU face. Who can see what’s really going on in YOUR life and provide custom-tailored solutions that work for your unique situation and body.
And you need effective tools that can be adjusted as your body changes… so you’ll know exactly how to stay fit, healthy, and beautiful for the rest of your life.
(Something no fad diet or exercise craze will EVER do for you.)

"Deciding to work with Lara was one of the best decisions I made this year. If you decide to use her services and make an honest effort to follow her recommendations, I'm sure it will be one of the best choices you make this year."
KASTYN REID | MODEL | NEW YORK, NY
"With Lara, I felt that I had a choice in what I ate and how I ate it rather than being on a strict diet."
Your Vibrant Health Playbook is about much more than just how you look and feel, though.
It’s about how your WHOLE life changes when you begin to care for the vehicle (i.e., your body and health!) that supports that life.
When you fuel and move your body the way it craves, you feel an expanded sense of clarity, confidence, and creativity – and THAT opens up a world of possibilities for what you can accomplish in life.
What Vibrant Health Playbook looks like
Let's break it down, week by week. Because you want A PLAN!
Here's what you'll learn.
IT BEGINS (PRE-WORK)
We’ll start with a comprehensive health discovery inventory to help you get clear about where you’ve been and where you’d like to go. You’ll uncover the true motivation behind your deep desire for vibrant health and make a few promises to yourself that will bolster your chances of success. (Because looking under the hood is a smart way to begin any road trip.)
CHOOSE YOUR OWN ADVENTURE (and get out of your own way)
Create your own personal roadmap for your VHP journey. You’ll feel inspired and playful, instead of overwhelmed and like hiding in your bed. How? Because I’ll teach you the critical shift you must make to set goals you’ll stick to. (This one thing changes EVERYTHING, and not just with food!)
AND you’ll learn your unique ways of sabotaging your best efforts to eat better, exercise more, get more sleep, and kick the habits that have gotten you out of shape and out of sorts… and how to move them out of the way. (You’ll also master the time management secret that will allow you to be healthy AND have a life. Bonus!)
WHAT'S YOUR IDEAL DIET?
Learn a powerful new way to view food that will unlock the secret to YOUR ideal diet. The way of eating that is uniquely yours. Because that diet book that worked wonders for your friend but caused you to gain 5 pounds? Yeah, toss that in the garbage. You’re not broken; IT is.
We’ll also decode widely accepted nutritional guidelines and learn why they may be keeping you from the vibrant health you crave (and exactly what to do instead).
YOUR KICK ASS KITCHEN
Your kitchen is at the heart of it all. Master simple ways to keep healthy and delicious food on hand every day, including the secret to being a discerning food shopper (and the ONE skill that will make choosing the right foods for your body 100 times easier).
You’ll also learn insider tips that food marketers don’t want you to know (hint: you’ll know exactly how to avoid the ingredients that give you belly bloat and brain fog, and stock up on the ones that make you feel trim and energetic).
THE EFFORTLESS MEAL MAPPING SYSTEM
We’ll break down how to shop for, prep, and cook healthy meals in less than 3 hours a week, so your kitchen is always stocked with simple, tasty, home-prepped meal options. No more staring at an empty fridge – or ordering greasy take-out (again) – at the end of a long day!
And no more overwhelming meal plans and complicated recipes that you don’t have time to make (I’m lookin’ at you, Hello Fresh and Blue Apron!). I’ll teach you how to create delicious, easy meals in a pinch – with my comprehensive but FLEXIBLE meal planning system (including simple, seasonal, whole foods recipes that will make you look good and feel great).
UNCOVERING YOUR STRONG & HEALTHY BOD(Y)
Learn my easy system for identifying the exact kind of exercise that will keep YOU feeling strong, fit, and trim (it’s different for everyone!) – and that you’ll actually stick with (even if you work long hours). We’ll also demystify the TWO BIGGEST missing pieces to your weight loss puzzle. If you don’t get these two things handled, managing your weight will always be an uphill battle.
A HEALTHY LADY WALKS INTO A PIZZA JOINT
Get the skinny on what to eat and what to avoid when you’re out and about – so you never again feel like you can’t be healthy because you eat out so much for work (plus, you WON’T feel deprived either!).
Learn my foolproof method for staying in control of what you eat when you travel (airport meals of candy bars + potato chips + random cheese snacks will never again sap your energy!). And what to do early in the day to avoid uncontrollable carb cravings later, just as a waiter sets a loaded-up basket of warm, artisanal bread (and butter!) in front of you at dinner.
A must for frequent travelers, social butterflies, and people who just like to be served a nice meal without having to wash dishes afterward!
MINDFULNESS AND GUILT-FREE SELF CARE
Learn to tie everything together with a little extra self care, including simple techniques for keeping YOU at the top of your priority list without a shred of guilt.
We’ll cover my unconventional philosophy on cultivating everyday mindfulness – so you can enjoy every moment of your life, instead of always worrying about what’s next. Plus, you’ll create tiny shifts you can easily incorporate into your already busy schedule that will bring less stress, more energy, and more joy to every moment.
YOUR VIBRANT HEALTH PLAYBOOK (+ YOUR SUPPORT CREW)
You’ve dug deep. You’ve experimented to find YOUR unique answer to the question “What makes ME feel healthy, confident, and beautiful every day?”. Now it’s time to capture all of that goodness in a place you can refer to when you need a refresher or some new ideas for what to try when you’re feeling stuck. At the end of VHP, you’ll get your very own – you guessed it – Vibrant Health Playbook. How cool is that?!
We’ll also identify your super-awesome support team back home and help you find the words to enlist them as your biggest health cheerleaders (even if they’re not into being healthy themselves).
And Here's What's Inside
You want to know how this actually works, right?
Details, comin' up!

READY TO FEEL HEALTHY, CONFIDENT, & POWERFUL AGAIN?
2 WAYS TO INVEST IN YOU!
Imagine waking up every day feeling on fire for your life. Imagine actually wanting to lace up your running shoes. Or grab your yoga mat and head to class. Or dive into the lap pool. What if it actually felt luxurious and artful to whip up a plate of food bursting with the kind of fresh flavors and nutritious ingredients that’ll have your skin glowing, your hair shining, and your eyes sparkling?
When you have your very own Vibrant Health Playbook, this is exactly what’s possible.
The truth is, when you 'go VHP,' life POPS.
The vital energy that’s been hidden just below the extra layer of padding on your body – and the layer of old beliefs weighing on your mind – comes out to play.
And that energy sparks a flame that lights up everything you do. You’re more engaged at work and with your family and friends. You’re more magnetic and attractive to business partners and opportunities. You’re showing up, excited to be out in the world and playing a bigger game.
Your eyes sparkle. Your skin is clearer. Your smile shines brighter.
Life feels more alive.

"I saw numerous gastroenterologists and nutritionists before starting this program and none of them were able to help me the way Lara did."
