They say a compliment is like verbal sunshine.
Here are some nice things people say about me that have truly brightened my life. I’m beyond honored and humbled to have worked with so many extraordinary women (and a few good men!) over the years.
Cynthia Pasquella-Garcia is quite simply one of the most motivational and inspirational women I know.That’s because Cynthia has the key to connecting both inner and outer wellbeing to produce lasting and life changing results. No matter what your goals and dreams are, this is the woman you want guiding you toward achieving them. Her knowledge and passion for helping women live their best life is unmatched—and that’s what comes across in everything she does.”
– Susan Campbell Cross, Lifestyle Editor, Shape Magazine
I admit, I always thought of myself as somewhat knowledgeable about food, nutrition and how to lose weight. But Cynthia showed me that so much of what I thought was “gospel” was completely inaccurate!
She opened up a whole new world of food to me that I’d never fathomed. She empowered me to fuel my body in a way that makes me stronger, clearer-headed, healthier…not to mention thinner! She encouraged me to think beyond the typical and use my natural creativity in the kitchen. I am forever grateful not just for the lessons about nutrition that she made so simple for me to understand, but for the entirely new perception of and relationship with food that she’s helped me establish in my everyday life. Thank you, Cynthia!
– Lisa Clark, Sr. Producer, The Doctors TV Show
Not only is Cynthia one of the most professional, knowledgeable, easy-going experts I have ever worked with, but she is also someone who genuinely cares. Her success stories and transformations are amazing. Her methods and philosophies and quick results can be achieved by anyone who believes they can, and if there is someone who doesn’t think they can, she will believe enough for the both of you!
– Jennifer Henderson, Producer, The Dr. Phil Show
It was a pleasure to work with Cynthia. Her compassion for people combined with her passion for what she does proves to be a winning combination when she helps people reach their full potential. Our one on one sessions helped me break old negative patterns and replace them with positive and nurturing ones. Participating in the program was without a doubt the start of a new and improved life for me.”
-JEN SAEZ, LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA
When any of my clients are looking to take the next step in building a healthy lifestyle I refer them to Cynthia. Her knowledge and expertise have helped me become a better trainer and improve my overall fitness.

Cynthia Pasquella-Garcia is a breath of fresh air in the wellness industry. She has a keen sense for quickly assessing, and tackling, the issues that cause us to struggle with reaching our wellness goals. Her approach works because it’s not only about what we put into our bodies, it’s about an entire mind/body connection and overall healthy lifestyle. And I love that Cynthia backs up her work with science by offering personalized testing. She’s über-knowledgable and a joy to work with.”
-Ana Cabán, Fitness & Lifestyle Personality, Creator of AnaCaban.com
Cynthia Pasquella-Garcia is a superstar, plain and simple. Here’s how I describe her: smart, sexy, compassionate, generous and incredibly knowledgeable. Cynthia knows more about how to combine foods, herbs and supplements to create the most balanced, healthy you than anyone I know. There’s a reason why everyone wants to work with her – cause her systems work!
– Giselle Achecar, Creator/CEO of EcoRico TV and Gigi’s Organics
Cynthia, I was in bad shape at 155 lbs recovering from an extreme back injury when I found your program, the PINK Method. I had great results when I was focused on it, but life seemed to pull away, and I plateaued. I started the Hungry Hottie Method 2 months ago, and I now feel confident that I will never struggle with weight gain and eating issues again. If I can reach my weight loss goals with the limitations I have physically, any one can. It’s a really beautiful transformation, and I encourage any woman searching for a way to get healthy and improve her life to make the investment. I’m now 126 and fit back into my wedding dress! Thanks for your wonderful work, Cynthia!”
– Melissa Angley
Cynthia, I am loving The Hungry Hottie Cookbook. The book and the recipes are amazing. I have had amazing success with your program and lost 65 pounds. I even signed up to run a half marathon this year, even though I have never run more than four miles. That’s how much you’ve changed my life. Now I actually believe that I can do anything I set my mind to.
– Susan DeLuca Dombrowski
Cynthia, your program has truly changed my life. Last July, one of my friends shared with me how she had lost over 75 pounds and dozens of inches…and I had been struggling with fuzzy thinking, depression, lethargy, bad skin, digestive issues, achy joints, and insomnia. After a year of following your program, I have lost 29 pounds. I now exercise regularly, and have a shake every day to jump start me for my day. I have clear skin, clear thoughts, and sleep well at night, have no, I mean NONE, gastrointestial upset, and I am waking each day refreshed in a way that coffee just can’t pick you up! Thank you Cynthia! I still have about another 20 lbs to go to reach goal, but am confident that I can reach it, one day at a time, using the methods you have taught me. And today? Well, today, I fit comfortably in a size of jeans that I haven’t even considered since my youngest child was born 12 years ago. THANK YOU!
– Katherine Burcell Chapman, Martinez, California
When I first met Cynthia, I knew her as a nutritionist but soon realized how that her gifts stretch so much much deeper than that. I had an amazing time at her RISE retreat, clarifying my own voice and connection with myself. Cynthia helped me to realize that it was time for me to step up and share all of my gifts with the world, not just parts of them.
– Sheila Viers, Co-Creator, Live Well 360 and SheilaViers.com
Cynthia, I wanted to tell you how good life is! I have totally reformed my eating habits and have lost 80 lbs! Wow! I have gone from a size 24 to a 14 and am actually running again! Your program has helped motivate me and keep me focused! I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE what you are doing! Thank you!
– Maggie Schempp
I’ve learned that it’s more than exercise and nutrition. It’s really a change in lifestyle and mindset as well as nurturing my body and spirit. This entire package is what was missing for me all these years. I owe Cynthia a HUGE thank you!
– Lu Buckmelter, Los Angeles, California
I spent my life worrying about my weight. I was on every diet imaginable and tried numerous dietary supplements. Not only did I finally lose the weight working with Cynthia but my digestive system runs like a brand new car! I love my new body! It is lean and toned and my skin, hair and nails are in amazing condition because of Cynthia’s nutritional program and her SoCal Cleanse products.Cynthia’s programs and private sessions go way beyond helping you lose the unwanted fat; her programs really help you reflect on who you are, where you want to be in life, and where food and your dreams/goals fit into your everyday life. She helped me find the strength inside of me to make healthier choices in life and most of all to really go after my dreams.
– Arianna Messplay, Washington DC
Seven months ago I was in desperate need of help. I was a 25 year old new mom with too much extra weight on me. I reached out to Cynthia and because of her I have a brand new life. With her help I have lost over 60lbs. For the first time in my entire life I am now considered to be in a healthy weight for my height. Cynthia has given me the chance to be the best mom I can be. I can now be a role model for my daughter and show her a healthy lifestyle. That itself is the greatest gift. I am forever grateful for everything Cynthia has done for me and my family.
– Stephanie Carvahlo, Winnipeg, Canada
Before I met Cynthia, every day I experienced the dreaded 3pm slump and always thought my acne was strictly hormonal. I never knew which foods I should eat or how I should pair up foods to give me the maximum energy or clear skin I wanted. It wasn’t until I started tweaking my diet that I realized the food I ate affected so many aspects of my body. Cynthia transformed my life. I don’t rely on caffeine or snacking on junk food anymore since I now have my energy back! And, my skin is clear and glowing. No dermatologist needed!
– Jennie Wolfgram
I’ve been working with Cynthia for some time now and have seen many results with her program. I lost weight, have more energy and have younger looking skin. I also did her Rise retreat and learned to honor myself by stepping into my greatness. She is my little Angel.
– Francisca Moroder
Working with Cynthia has changed my whole outlook on life! I attending her RISE retreat this past January. We learned how to meditate (not as woo-woo as you might think), how to get the most nutrients from our food and how to really listen to our bodies. Since then I have developed a yoga and meditation practice that has calmed my mind, strengthened my muscles and given me renewed clarity and focus in my life.Cynthia has this innate ability to really dig deep and help you uncover what is truly holding you back in life. She is a spiritual detective! She approaches her work with you from a place of deep love and understanding. She will “get” you like no one else, I promise! Cynthia has taught me how to tap in to my intuition and make choices based on how I want to feel in my life. As a result, I feel more alive, more centered and happier then I have in decades.
– Amanda Lindsey, Jewelry Designer, Nine Thirteen Designs
Cynthia is an inspiration and I will forever be grateful to her for creating the tools (diet/exercise plan, nutritional guidance, & delicious recipes) that will serve me for the rest of my life. Alas, I am “in control” of my weight which brings me a sense of empowerment and peace of mind.
– Janet Redmond
Cynthia has made a huge impression on and in my life. She knows how to get to the core of what’s needed in each person. I will never forget what Cynthia has done for my life. The meals in her book are my “go to guide” daily. Lastly, Cynthia is someone who takes her time with each client and never gives up on them even when they want to give up on their self.”
– Joy Morris
Cynthia taught me that I shouldn’t see dieting as dieting but as A Life style change and see dieting as a way of life. Cynthia has taught me that my health is more important than any number on a scale and for that I am GRATEFUL. Cynthia is the REAL DEAL when it comes to weight loss and I’m thankful for her!
– Rhenotha Whitaker
Cynthia has a true passion in her business and I’ve never met anyone so genuine in their willingness to help other women.
– Rebecca Poppe
Cynthia has such a common sense approach to living life that is very refreshing, but yet she includes all the scientific research to dig deep into each person’s personal situation. That speaks volumes to me! None of us are exactly alike so why should our approach to fitness and nutrition be? It’s all about customization and doing what works best for YOU! Cynthia does an amazing job helping each of her clients figure this out!
– Mary Bess Dalton,Dallas, TX
A few weeks ago I did my first ever 5K. I would have laughed at you a year ago if someone told me I’d be doing that. Cynthia made that possible for me and I’m forever grateful for how she changed my life.
– Pat Guziak
Cynthia Pasquella-Garcia has inspired me to be a better me. Because of Cynthia’s support she showed me my love for food could remain but the foods could change. As a result, my body has transformed and I have blossomed as a person. Cynthia gave me the courage to keep going and go the distance.
– Cheryl Freeburg
I am really amazed by Cynthia and all her work. Please, tell her that It reached to my soul the first moment I saw her and she spoke. She transmits such high energy, health and vitality! Cynthia is awesome!!
– Alicia Lemus, Alcorcon, Spain
I rode my bicycle to work today! It was 25 miles! Thanks Cynthia for giving me my life back!
– Christa Foster
After 49 pounds and a life-changing journey I can look back and feel proud of myself! The best part of this journey is that I believe in myself again. I feel so comfortable in my clothes and my body again and most of all I have my self-confidence back! It’s so nice to walk in a clothing store again and know that I can buy the top that I like and that they will have it in my size.If you asked me 4 months ago if I would lose this weight I would have told you no, I don’t think I can do this. I can and I did! I am alive again 🙂
– Bernadine Otto Cincinnati, Ohio
I would like to thank you, Cynthia, for spreading your knowledge of eating clean and healthy. I was 327 pounds when I saw you on the Dr. Phil show. This was an approach that I had never experienced before. I found I didn’t have to starve and I could eat the right foods. It was simple and satisfying. Now after accessing your Hungry Hottie techniques I have continued success and I am 212 pounds today. I know I will succeed because you have given me the tools. When I stumble and fall I move on again. Life is good! I have accomplished so much and the numbers continue to go down. I appreciate all you have done for me.
– Sue Cunningham
I love how you are open to helping all people and not just those looking to lead a vegan or vegetarian lifestyle. I am neither of those, just a person looking to eat healthy, stay at a healthy weight and live life joyfully! Eating healthy is no longer boring, it’s yummy! Thank you, Cynthia for being so caring, so helpful, so inspiring and for motivating me to be my best self – not just with weightloss but mentally and emotionally. I have learned so much from you and so much about myself thanks to your transformation tools and seemingly endless resources!
– Brenda Smith, Snow Hill, Maryland
I have always been overweight. I think my highest was 270 lbs. I would lose and gain. There must have been a ton of diets. Then I saw Cynthia Pasquella-Garcia. How I believe she saved me. The way she is is amazing and her methods are awesome. She is so supportive in everything. Today, I have finally found myself. The weight loss is only part of it. I now like who I am. I am now a happy and healthy 204lbs. I don’t know how I will ever show Cynthia how grateful I am.
– Carol Bushar Chavez, Rock Falls, Illinois
Cynthia, you have transformed my life. From the P.I.N.K. Method, then the Hungry Hottie Cookbook and now the Hungry Hottie Method 6 Week Transformation Program, each program moved me along in my transformation and I’m finally seeing the real authentic ME shine through. The 6 Week Transformation program is liking having you as my therapist. Thanks for all you do for us!
– Melanie Connolly, Quakertown, Pennsylvania
I just wanted to let you know, Cynthia, what a big difference you made in my life. I tell everyone about the program and how available you are to us women. I have not stuck to the program 100% but I like knowing I can jump right back in at any time. It is laid out in such a simple way, and the falling off the wagon or slipping on the PINK Method and Hungry Hottie Method 6 Week Transformation Program does not mean I am a failure. You’ve taught me to pick myself up and start where I left off. I know one bad day does not mean I failed, it means I am human. Thank you for an amazing life changing program and support!
– Colleen Khadan, Maryland
41 pounds down! This is just the beginning for me! Thank you Cynthia!

– Lisa Machi
I have always had trouble with eczema on my wrists and hands. When I follow Cynthia’s diet it completely clears up. I fell back to some old eating habits and it came back immediately. Now that I’m back on track it’s gone again. I’m down 44 lbs and feeling fantastic!
– Christine Japhet
Cynthia, your program has seriously changed my life. I watch all your shows that but one was my miracle. I couldn’t stand my weight for another second of another minute of another hour of another day. As of today I’ve lost 81 lbs! You, Cynthia Pasquella-Garcia, have saved me! Oh and my hubby has lost 100 lbs doing it with me! I thank you from the bottom of my heart.

– Cyndi Potts Woodruff
Cynthia, I want to thank you for coming up with PINK, it has literally changed my life. I have lost 51 lbs! I can’t even believe it! Thank you so much, I’m eternally grateful!
– Amanda Milton
I was like every other fat person who thought “no diet works,” “I was just made to be fat,” blah blah blah. As a part time photographer and a full time mommy of three, I didn’t ever have time for myself. After I had my last baby I told myself THIS IS THE TIME FOR ME!!! I took action. I saw the your program on Dr.Phil and thought maybe I will give it a try. Boy am I glad I did!!!!! Thank you Cynthia for changing my life!
– Andrea Munday
For over 15 years I had wanted to lose 50 lbs but never could. I would lose 10 but gain it back and then some. I tried pills, I would work out and not eat right or eat right and not work out, Slim Fast, Nutrisystem, Weight Watchers, everything I could with no results.I started your program and am down 30 pounds in 3 months. I still can’t believe it myself and look at the mirror every chance I get. I am SO happy, excited and shocked. It is a wonderful feeling to finally be in control of my body & self. I have more self confidence and want my husband to see my body instead of hiding it! I am so thankful for Cynthia sharing her method, it truly does work!
– Jennifer Ree Selanoff
I just wanted to thank you for giving me my life back! I have been on on your program and so far I have lost 34 pounds and gone from a size 17/18 to a size 12!! I can’t believe how much better I feel about myself inside and out . You are amazing and this program is amazing! I have NEVER stuck to any other program before and I can see this way of life staying with me forever!! Thank you thank you!!!
– Rachel Salinas
Thank you so much for creating this program!! I started out at 140.2 lbs and today I am 116 lbs. I have lost approximately 18-19 total inches. And I have lost approximately 10% body fat!! My cholesterol was 217 and today my cholesterol is 170!! All this AND I just turned 50 years old! Thanks again Cynthia!!
– Laura Kofron
You truly are a life saver! I’ve lost 60 pounds using your program and I’ve never felt this great! Not only am I happier but my husband and two wonderful sons are happier too. It’s so nice to finally be able to run around with them without getting out of breath. I love that I can go into any clothing store now and actually find clothes that fit me. Before I started your program, I would leave the store crying because nothing fit. Thank you so much for helping me get the life I’ve always wanted and to become the mom my boys deserve.
– Andrea Terry
I can only hope that many other women can have the same experience that I have had and that they can take control of themselves and let go of everything that holds them back. I never realized how much I was letting myself down. But, I stand before you a stronger, healthier, happier person and it all started with the knowledge in your program. I am currently down 106 pounds in the past 9 months. I NEVER thought I would be able to say that. But, I am here! And I did this for myself! And I am still going!! 🙂 I have never been so motivated in my life! And it is amazing! Thank you for everything!
– Christine Davis
Cynthia, I LOVE your recipes! You truly understand food, marrying tastes and spices while incorporating high nutrients! You are very gifted! Thank you for your time and commitment to health.
– Tammy Scahill Bohannon
Cynthia, you changed my life! Thanks to your program, I’m on my way to Barbados 30+ lbs lighter and wearing a 4 – 6 rather than a 12 – 14 like when I was there this time last year!
