BEN TZEEL

Registered Dietitian, Certified Strength & Conditioning Specialist

Hi, I’m Ben, registered dietitian, strength coach, and T1D vet of over 20 years who specializes in providing you with the blueprint to amazing blood sugars...

So you can eat the foods you love, do the things you love, and live life on YOUR terms, NOT diabetes' terms.

Over the years, I’ve had the pleasure of using my professional and personal experiences to help hundreds of people with diabetes to improve their A1cs, transform their bodies, and feel FREE again. My team and I are here to show you (and your loved ones) how to find what works most effectively for YOU, so you can sustain these results in the short term, but also for life.

THERESE MARTINEZ

Registered Dietitian, Certified Personal Trainer

Hey hey! I'm Therese! I was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes when I was 14 years old - what fantastic timing with entering high school, right? The diagnosis was a part of a cascade of issues around food, body, and health - I ended up battling an eating disorder for close to a decade, which I eventually defeated. I ultimately realized I felt misled with a lot of the information provided to me around proper nutrition with T1D, and it was a HUGE reason for me to pursue understanding nutrition and fitness better.

I absolutely LOVE seeing people with diabetes light up when they discover how great they can feel with proper nutrition, understanding their bodies, and not obsessing over their blood sugars, all while living an active lifestyle. When I am not working with clients, you can find me in the gym throwing a barbell around, running trails, playing sand volleyball, or climbing a mountain!

MARY MCNEILL

Registered Dietitian, Certified Diabetes Educator

Hi! I'm Mary! I helped thousands of people improve their health. I worked in the traditional healthcare system, as well as corporations and private practice. Also, I led individual and group instruction in nutrition, diabetes/insulin resistance, cardiometabolic disease, autoimmune disease, bariatrics, and other conditions. In providing guidance to physicians and other healthcare professionals on advanced laboratory biomarkers, my colleagues introduced me to functional medicine. The wellness movement and the focus on integrative functional medicine seemed to be an answer to supporting the body’s own healing processes. 

I live in north Texas, and enjoys gardening, photography, and travel! I have two sons, and a chocolate lab named Moki. My current project is a pollinator garden, which is designed to attract native butterflies and bees!
