Personal coaching beyond weight loss.

Learn how to create healthier habits that support better health, wellness, and sustainable weight loss.


Sustainable results require LIFEstyle changes.

We have tried everything! From diet soups, diet products, and too many other “quick fixes” to name. Our experience with these quick fixes amounted to the same result...nothing.


Short term solutions do not produce long term results. It took many years before we realized we could no longer focus our efforts strictly on weight loss. We had to shift our efforts away from the scale and on our health.


By focusing on our health, we made daily choices that would better support the health and weight loss outcomes we desired for ourselves.

That same strategy applies to you. If you want something different, you must implement something different. 


Making better health choices is the difference.

Raegan's Story

"I've developed practices I can live with for the rest of my life."

Better Choices has taught me that with balance and consistency, I can have lasting and sustainable results. Through coaching, I’ve developed practices that I can live with for the rest of my life. I’ve developed confidence that I never had in life thanks to the support I received daily.

My success has motivated my family to makes changes as well; that makes me most grateful to my coaches. They helped me to get my life back when I felt like there was no hope for success.


Eric & Maleka use their personal experiences and extensive research to help others reach their goals and change their lives. Working with Eric and Maleka has truly been a blessing. I’m excited about setting and reaching new goals because I'm equipped with all the tools I need for continued success!


Nicole's Story

"BetterChoices helped me to conquer the largest hurdle during my journey to weight! "

I have struggled with my weight since childhood. I’ve tried multiple diet and exercise plans, each leaving me with the experience of short-term success. Each time, manifesting feelings of frustration, anger, and hopelessness.  Then I met Eric and Maleka, who, through their individual coaching, helped me not only bolster my self-accountability but also to seek health as my ultimate goal.


The lessons that I learned have carried me through an initial 50-pound weight loss. This first milestone helped me reverse my new diagnosis of high blood pressure and pre-diabetes. The journey was not easy because I allowed myself to make a number of excuses as to why I was unable to keep my commitment to myself about improving my health.  My work, which included long days and high stress, were the biggest reasons I presented for my inability to maintain my commitments. I quickly learned that I was the only person who could make the changes necessary to ensure my health. If I didn’t learn how to hold myself accountable, I would never be able to live a long and healthy life.


Lois's Story

"Rather than feeling restricted with how much I can eat, I feel a greater sense of control."

After finishing my Doctorate, I realized I had gained 25 pounds in addition to a degree! After moving to New Orleans, I began working out as much as possible but nothing seemed to change.


I met Maleka and Eric when they were giving a talk on tracking food during this challenge. They helped me remove the emotion out of the struggle to lose weight. They have provided such amazing support while helping me laugh at myself at the same time.


Rather than feeling restricted with how much I can eat, I feel a much greater sense of control. I still have work to do but I am confident it’s only a matter of time instead of an unattainable “someday.”  I’m so grateful to my coaches!


Avril's Story

"I'm continuing to do the work. It's a lifestyle at this point. The goal? A healthy life forever. "

29.2 and counting!!!


BetterChoices, I cannot sing your praises enough. The investment is worth it, and I am continuing to do the work. It's a lifestyle at this point. The goal: a healthy life forever.


Clear skin, no meds, all love, no deprivation, all self-control, no quick fixes, all empowered self. No crazy two hours in the gym only to eat "diet" food.


Nutrition over nonsense. Betterchoices on the DAILY. The dividends are surreal; everyone is following suit. Happy wife? Happy life. Which way the mama goes, so does the fam. No BS.
