Lori Sawyer & Caren Boscaino
Clean Cut Fitness & Nutrition

“Clean Cut” Fitness and Nutrition is a weight loss program that closely examines why we eat certain foods, determines what we should be eating, and makes us conscious of how we respond to certain triggers. The main program includes a Six Week Virtual Weight Loss Challenge with weekly phone calls and access to an online group who provide accountability and support.  With a strong emphasis on balance, the program allows you to eat real food like bacon, butter and yes, even chocolate!  Oh, and did we mention the wine, tequila and vodka too?  You’re welcome.

Caren Boscaino and Lori Sawyer the founders of Clean Cut have a combined 30+ years of experience in the health and nutrition industry with countless success stories from their clients.  The NJ based fitness duo have compiled their expertise into this real-life program that works.

“Lori and I saw a huge misconception of what people thought was healthy and the real facts and science behind what we should actually eat. We wanted to take out all the guesswork making it fun and easy”, says Boscaino.

They have recently just launched their first book,“Shrink Your Body, Grow Your Mind”.  This is the last book you’ll ever need to finally lose weight, get healthy and maintain long term weight loss. Filled with recipes and real-life tips, this book walks you through their simple, but effective 6-week weight loss program. It teaches you key facts (and myths) about nutrition, how to gain control of cravings and – most importantly – how to navigate your relationship with food
