What people are saying...
Leigh Ann Ambrosi, Executive and Mother of 2
"I've never dieted before or worked with a nutritionist, but as I was approaching 50 and hitting peri/menopause, the belly weight gain came out of nowhere just like everyone said it would! I was also eating every few hours and always felt hungry- I just never felt satisfied and full.
After consulting with Tara, I knew I had found the right person to work with. Right from the beginning she understood my challenges, explained what my body was going through, and helped me identify what I was lacking and getting too much of in my diet. She created a nutritional plan for me that was easy to follow, gave me great variety in the foods I ate, introduced foods I had stayed away from for years (wrongly!), and was there for every annoying question I had along the way. Within two weeks I felt better physically, had more energy, was loving the foods I was eating, and started to see the "bloat" going away. By the end of the program I had lost the weight that had crept on, and felt incredible all-around. I also learned so much through the process...about my body, about nutrition, about ingredients and labels, and just about mindful eating in general, all of which were added perks to the weight loss.
Does Tara's program involve prep work, commitment, and consistency? Yes, of course it does. But it also works. And in my opinion, anything that REALLY works and gives you TRUE results, is worth the time and energy you put into it."
Alexandra P., Manager and Mother of 2
“I absolutely loved working with Tara. Her program is the first weight loss program I've tried that works. I thought I knew everything there was to know about diet and health and just needed some accountability, but she taught me a lot and provided the perfect dose of tough love to keep me motivated. I was looking for a shift in mindset and she provided me with that and was able to diagnose where I was making mistakes and help me course correct.“
Holly, Small Business Owner
I'm only halfway through. my program, but I have already met my primary goal. On top of that, I've experienced additional benefits such as greater energy, better mood and improved sleep since starting the program. The program Tara created for me has been easy to follow, but she has also given me guidance that has allowed me to make good choices when I cannot follow the program exactly. I feel confident that I will continue to adhere to the guidelines for the rest of my life because the benefits have been so great!
Jamie Halperin, School Counselor and Mother of 2
Working with Tara has not only been easy and wonderful - honestly for me it has been life changing. As someone who had always been thin, putting on weight as I approached 50 was new and confusing for me. I didn't know what to do, and this is when I decided to work with Tara. I have learned important information about nutrition that I had previously not paid attention to. Within six weeks I was down to my goal weight! What I have learned through Tara's guidance has been invaluable, and I plan to maintain my new healthy habits going forward. I can't recommend Tara enough!
Jennie Rothman, Head of Non Profit and Mother of 2
When the 5-10 pounds I always wanted to lose turned to 15 during the pandemic, I tried all sorts of different programs and techniques to lose the weight. Even though I "knew" what to do, I couldn't get the weight off and felt horrible in my body.
In a matter of a few months, Tara helped me to do what I'd been unable to do for a few years. Her program kept me feeling full and satisfied and just made sense. Tara's combo of upbeat support and tough love was just what I needed. With Tara's help, I was able to celebrate a special occasion feeling healthier both physically and mentally. I'm so grateful for her help.
Sumi Raghavan, Clinical Psychologist, Professor and Mother of 2
I have never gone on "a diet" in my life, and am very opposed to many aspects of diet and wellness culture. In my first convo w/ Tara I told her that I'm not quitting dairy, wine, or sugary snacks. Her response? "You shouldn't have to." She wasn't remotely put off by my skepticism, and worked with me to build a plan that worked FOR me, based on my preferences and goals. I'm a busy working mom of two, and while I love to cook, I have no time for big elaborate meals. Her recipes are awesome, quick and effective. I was immediately able to make small changes in breakfast and lunch and snacks, and while dinner was tricky, we worked on it and found ways. Her general principles are: choose lean protein & veggies, less carbs, make small and sustainable changes, allow mindful indulgences. She supports you every step of the way and doesn't shame you if you have a bad meal day, but encourages you to take each meal as an opportunity to try again. This really isn't a diet, it's a lifestyle eating plan that's sustainable and results oriented. I've lost 15 lbs, I dont feel deprived of the foods I like, and I feel like I know how to make healthier choices every step of the way. Now, those healthier choices are becoming the default, where they used to be a rarity. If you, like me, are anti-diet but pro health, Tara is your gal. Thanks Tara!
Rachel Parker, Future Nutrition Coach and Mother of 2
Tara is an amazing coach to work with! Her program’s approach is not only easy to follow, but extremely effective. I had slowly been gaining weight the past few years and just couldn’t seem to lose it. Through tweaks and changes to my eating habits, Tara quickly helped me unlock the mysteries of the middle age creep and how to get rid of it. I’m back to my happy weight & then some! I now have the knowledge & tools to keep my weight on track through holidays and hormone fluctuations and I couldn’t be happier. I feel like my old self again and can’t recommend Tara highly enough.
Allison, Communications Professional + Mother of 1
Giving birth to a baby when I was 40+ meant that weight put on during pregnancy was not going to magically work itself out - like it did when I was younger! And spending money on meal plans and fast-acting diets with a lot of rules over the past few years always seemed to implode after a month or two, when the novelty wore off. Tragically, those eating plans never resulted in long-lasting results either and just added to my feeling of failure. When I signed up with Tara, I didn't know what to expect but I knew that I needed help. She was able to take me, as I was, feeling pretty emo and unhealthy at the time - and illuminate a path. That path included weekly phone check-ins, texts to say hello - her meal plan and a roadmap of delicious recipes - which slowly became my North Star. And when my husband lost his brother and mother within a few weeks of each other, I leaned harder on that North Star to navigate me. Pretty soon, good choices became habitual, and as a result - I was feeling stronger, lighter, and more hopeful than I had in a very long time. Today, I am down about 17 pounds in 3 months - a little bit at a time, in a sustainable way - while still enjoying the finer things in life like the occasional martini and cupcake without going too off track for too long. I am excited for the future, and I am physically energized to be a more active mom with my son. If you are looking for your North Star, I'd say Tara's in the Heavens, waiting just for you.
Anonymous, Teacher and Mother of 2
I was at a place where I knew I was ready to lose baby/covid weight. But I also knew I needed help to get on the right path. Tara was exactly what I needed. She set up a plan that was strict, yet flexible with choice, and accommodations for food intolerances. She introduced a new way to think about fueling my body that I had really never considered before. With that she introduced certain foods (some that I had never even heard of) that would help lower my carb intake and up my fiber intake. I was never hungry (except maybe before bed, but she recommended a dessert that helped curb a craving). And much of the bloat I had before is gone. She checked in often, and always had advice for getting over hurdles that came up along the journey. She was so proud and celebratory of each achievement I made. It’s been 3 months since ending our 12 week program, and I am still following Tara’s guidelines, but now maybe with a few more splurges since I hit my goal weight (30 pounds lost!). Tara opened my eyes to a way of eating that feels really healthy and is easy to balance in my real life. Thank you Tara! I’ll always be grateful to have worked with you.
Melanie F., Managing Editor and Mother of 2
Working with Tara really changed my life. I’m stunned at the weight loss progress I’ve made AND the changes I’ve made to live a healthier life. Not only am I down 19 lbs since this time last year, my cholesterol levels and glucose numbers - which my doctor has been monitoring closely because of my family history - are all down too. I couldn’t have done this without her push, the constant tools and guidance she provided. I really feel like now I finally have a handle and a clearer understanding on what works best for me and my body.
Tara is an amazing coach! She is inspirational and motivating. Her method of coaching is unlike anyone else I had worked with previously.
1. She works with clients to assure the lifestyle created can be maintained.
2. She assures her clients that no one is perfect and that the road to a healthy lifestyle is learned over time and not one night.
3. Keep track of clients via app and provides comments on entries accordingly. She gives you the tools you need to be accountable for healthy eating/living
While I lost 20lbs I gained so much more than weight loss; I gained confidence in my lifestyle, I learned how to eat healthy while not counting calories & a positive outlook on my weight loss journey past having weekly check-in sessions.
If you're looking for a positive lifestyle change, give Tara a call she will help you in the best way possible.
Christina Taber-Kewene, Founder of CTK College Coach and Mother of 4
I accidentally put on 10 pounds during the pandemic. Losing weight after age 40 was a new situation for me, but Tara helped me very quickly and healthfully drop the extra weight and in less time than we predicted I would need. She is just the right mix of knowledge, patience, and a little tough love when you need it. I could not be happier, and I recommend her to anyone who is ready for a successful approach to nutrition and weight loss! Moreover, I feel confident that I have developed better habits around food that will help me maintain my weight into the future.
Jennifer Cole, Mom of 2
Tara is an amazing, supportive and balanced guide to wellness and eating. I had spent thousands of dollars trying and failing various plans. Tara’s approach worked right away and I reached my goal weight without issue and without feeling like I sacrificed enjoying food.
I have a lifestyle now - not a diet. Throughout my journey, Tara never skipped a step- always offering support, new recipe ideas, restaurant advice and whatever else I needed in a moment. I’ve recommended her to friends who are also thrilled with the approach. Not to mention, my husband started copying me and lost 10lbs:) She is simply the best!!!
Katie Kuchinsy, Veterinarian and Mom of 3
At 42 and after 3 kids, I never thought I could feel this good. Tara's program taught me to eat mindfully. I have made simple changes- higher fiber, lower carbs, more whole foods-and I'm down 18 pounds and counting. This isn't a diet, it's a lifestyle change
Dr. Yusun Gohard, Dentist and Mom of 2
I just completed my 6 weeks session with Tara!! My experience was amazing!! I am a busy working mom with 2 young boys. I constantly had body aches and weight gain in the past 3 years. I desperately needed to change my lifestyle and develop a new healthy route that can work with my schedule. Tara made it possible!!! Instead of a meal plan, I was able to modify my meals and not feeling deprived. I not only lost weight but also acquired a skill that will benefit my life. I would recommend Tara to everyone!!
Donna Herley, Mom of 3
I've really enjoyed working with Tara over the last 4 weeks. She has taught me a new way to approach weight loss, where I never feel deprived. She has helped me find clever, tasty and healthy substitutes for foods that I know I shouldn't be eating. She is so practical and well-versed in this area - I trust her implicitly and I'm getting RESULTS. It's working- I'm down 9 lbs!
Abbey Kuster-Prokell, Art Director at Martha Stewart Living and Mom of 2
Tara is a terrific health coach. She is extremely knowledgeable about nutrition, weight loss, and overall health. She meets you wherever you are on your journey, and tailors a specific meal plan (with recipes!) to your individual goals. Tara strikes a good balance between being compassionate and encouraging while also holding you accountable for your decisions. She listens to areas you are struggling and offers viable solutions. I highly recommend Tara to anyone looking to lead a healthier lifestyle.
Lauren Chapman, Designer and Mom of 3
10 lb loss in 4 weeks, a knowledge of my body, what's working, what's not...that intuition that is so hard to learn. Tara provides you with the tools to get there, and quickly! Tara does personal deep dive with you to empower you to get you to your goal. She's always available to her clients and only a call/text away when you're headed to your local restaurant to provide some advice and options of what will satisfy you. It's not a diet but a better way of life and eating.
Elizabeth S., Mom of 2
Tara helped me meet a weight loss goal I've had for a while, but couldn't achieve on my own. Through her science-backed education, recipes, shopping lists and belief in me, I was able to lose 12 pounds in 5 weeks while enjoying food and feeling satisfied. It's a lifestyle change I will stick with. Thank you, Tara!
Victoria Zuccaro, College Student
Being a Full time college student meant that I had little time to prioritize my health while trying to adjust to the new environment around me. I found myself constantly gaining weight. This is when I knew I needed Tara. Working with Tara has completely changed my relationship with food. She has counseled me 24/7 during the process, taught me how to cook homemade meals, portion size for my body, and showed me the best options to choose while eating out. From this, I have lost 10 pounds. I have never felt more energetic and comfortable in my own skin. Not only did I gain this, but the relationship I grew with her is truly indescribable. Her knowledge and dedication in this field should not go unnoticed. I would highly recommend Tara to anyone struggling!
Lauren Biehl, Equity Analyst
I can’t say more positive things about Tara and her approach to wellness! I’ve struggled to drop excess weight from a demanding work schedule that requires lots of travel, client entertaining, and little sleep. In the last month, she’s helped me drop over 8 lbs by creating customized meal plans and being my support system around the clock. With my PCOS diagnosis in my teens, I’ve always had a hard time staying on a diet that keeps me feeling full and doesn’t cause headaches or dizziness. While working with Tara, I haven’t had any of those issues and continue to see the weight fall off. Tara is a great health coach and can help you reach your goals!
Aliza Rozman-Nigra, Realtor, Mom of 3
Tara is amazing! I went to her to jumpstart my weight loss. She was exactly what I needed. She gave me meal plans, recipes and the support I needed! She truly taught me how to eat not just for a diet but for a lifestyle change. I lost 13 pounds in the first month and continue to lose. I cannot recommend Tara enough! I truly believe she has changed my life! - Aliza Rozman-Nigra
Alexis Kuchinsky, Head of Compliance and Mom of 2
Tara, I can't thank you enough! In my 4th week of your "6 Weeks to Sleek" program, I have lost 10 pounds. I didn't even think that was possible. I have never been successful on a diet before, but this program is SO EASY to follow! I never feel hungry or deprived. I go out to eat, and I even drink alcohol. The weight has literally melted off. You and your program are the best!
J.G., Vice President, Mom of 3
I ate healthy and exercised, but the pounds crept up. Then I listened to a friend and registered for Highway 2 Well's "6 Weeks to Sleek" and it has made ALL the difference. I'm down 11 pounds and only 1 pound from my goal weight. Tara's high fiber meal plans were easy to follow and my entire family loved her recipes. She even went through menus of all of my local lunch spots and told me exactly what I should order. This program is exactly what you need if you have stubborn weight that just won't budge. I can't recommend this program enough. - J.G.
Tom, Communications and Dad of 2
Tara is realistic about her approach to weight loss and she understands that 'hardcore dieting' for extended periods of time isn't compatible with living your life. Not only am I a fan of her approach and 24/7 support, BUT I am also a very big fan of losing 25 pounds in 6 weeks doing it her way...the right way!
N.O., Stylist and Mom of 3
My husband and I have tried Highway 2 Well's meal delivery program and we both really enjoyed it. I decided I needed more of a jumpstart with Spring coming, so I started working with Tara one-on-one. She created a program for me that easy to follow and I lost 8 pounds in two weeks! I like that I have to be accountable for what I eat when I check in with her, and she's so easy to talk to. I'm learning what foods to eat for weight loss and what to eat to maintain it once I've reached my goal.
Interior Designer and Mom of 2
In the first week of Highway 2 Well's "6 Weeks to Sleek" program, I lost 7.3 lbs! I was really motivated and Tara's program makes it so doable. I have so much energy that my husband and children find me annoying.
Vanessa Primack, Attorney and Mom of 2
When I started working with Tara, I was exhausted physically, mentally and emotionally. With support, encouragement and real, specific and obtainable ideas and options, Tara focused on helping me make small, sustainable changes. Always supportive, never judgmental, and always funny, Tara really helped me change the way that I eat and interact with food. I no longer worry about what I eat and I now know what works for me and what doesn’t. Did I mention the 14 pounds that I have lost? That was the icing on the cake.
Lawyer and Mom of 4
As a busy mom of four, I always put my family's needs before my own. The result was that I was overeating, stressed and exhausted. During Highway 2 Well's 6 Week’s to Sleek, Tara guided me every step of the way, helped me set realistic goals, and completely transformed my relationship with food. I continued my weight loss journey with Tara past the 6 weeks and have lost over 40 pounds. I expected to lose weight on Tara's program, but I did not expect it to have the impact that it has had on my overall wellbeing. A couple of weeks into the program, I feeling better both mentally and physically than I had in a decade.
Stylist, Business Owner, and Mom of 2
A huge THANK YOU to Tara Roscioli and Highway2 Well! In the short time that I've been lucky enough to work with Tara, she has changed my life. I've lost 9 pounds, but that is just an added bonus. I feel revitalized, have gained so much energy, and I finally understand my body and what works best for it. I feel better than I ever have. Most importantly, I have achieved my ultimate goal- I finally have the relationship with food that I always wanted but could never attain. I couldn't have done this without Tara. Her advice, guidance, information and support make reaching your goals, whatever they are, more manageable than you ever thought possible. I could never thank Tara enough or sing higher praises for Highway 2 Well!
Julie Pauly, Owner of The Able Baker
Here are a few things I loved about Highway 2 Well's meal delivery service. Tara planned the menus and prepared the food herself. Everything tasted great, and I was never hungry so I never cheated (which is crucial in my line of work!) 5 weeks and 13 pounds lighter having worked with Tara, I feel refreshed and inspired!
Jennifer Greenberg, Hearth Realty
This was the 2nd time I signed up for Highway 2 Well, and I was not disappointed!!! Each meal was delicious and filling!! The combination of fresh ingredients took the guessing out of eating healthy for the entire week - Thank you!!
Devon Canastra, Mom of 3
I have done the 5 day Highway 2 Well meal plan a few times now and have loved it every time! Most recently, I did it to help with my sugar cravings while breastfeeding. With three small children I was in a bad habit of snacking all day instead of having meals and was missing protein and vegetables... and I really felt it. Tara’s food is delicious, super fresh, the menus have a range of flavors and I did not feel hungry. I felt like I had a better sense of what my body needed to work well and had more self control over my snacking after the 5 days! Thank you so much, Tara!
Stacey Futterman Tauriello
3 months post-partum and needed an easy healthy kickstart to cut my cravings since my hormones were coming back full force. Decided to do it and my husband did too! We did the 5 day Highway 2 Well meal plan (Monday - Friday) and we both feel amazing. We lost about 4-5 pounds each but never felt starving and it cut our sugar cravings. Food was so yummy! Highly recommend!
LaRue May Rhodes
I just finished a three day 'reboot' of delicious meals and snacks yesterday from Highway 2 Well. I feel so refreshed and energetic today! The food was absolutely fabulous and the juices were refreshing. I will definitely make this part of my life a few times per month! Thanks Tara! Your talent on the kitchen is amazing!
