This has been a life changing experience. I have lost 18 pounds in 6 weeks I am a Type2 diabetic and my sugars went from 200 to 140 and I have more energy and feel great There is tremendous support We had workshops weekly on Zoom which taught us healthy eating I was never hungry and followed my food regimen . This was the best decision of my lifetime .
Body was done by Dr Donna I’ll Goldstein and Dana Skaf is impossible to overestimate. I weigh 266 pounds and was diagnosed a diabetic. I was only able to drop about 20 pounds by myself. I had high blood pressure, diabetes and then I had a series of mini strokes! I began body wisdom on May 20. After 90 days I had lost 30 pounds. I joined a Body Wisdom weekly meeting group and lost 15 more pounds in six weeks. And now! My blood pressure is 106 over 69 with a pulse of 60. My blood glucose is 90!! I am no longer even PRE- diabetic!! It’s more than weight loss! It’s a lifestyle that cares for the whole person, physically and emotionally. For me that means I have learned patience, I have learned to focus more effectively, and am more able to rejoice in each day as it comes, bringing whatever it might bring. Body Wisdom not only snatched my life back from the jaws of death or disability, it provided tools to make that life one well worth living.
Health. That is what I know we all want for ourselves everyone in our lives. I have been on a journey for many years to get "healthy". Before Covid, I went to the gym 2-3 times per week for almost 2 years. (I didn't lose any weight, but definitely got stronger) I have been on a zillion "diets" and food plans from the grapefruit diet to Weight Watchers and more. Each of them was a successful as my commitment to the program. It is all about commitment and choice. I get it. Seven weeks ago I started something new (again). I have been on a journey with Dana Skaf and Dr. Donna Goldstein to change my thinking (you know..change your thinking, change your life!) So far I have gotten rid of (not lost) 16 pounds as of this morning and 4 inches off my waist. I realize this is not earth shattering, but it isn't about earth shattering. It is about choices I make each day. I do not have to buy someone else's food (although programs that do that seem to work great for many of my friends! Go Choice!). I am NEVER hungry because I eat 3 meals and 3 snacks each day. I have learned to eat more protein (this is tough for me as a pescatarian who is mostly a vegetarian) and less carbs (the toughest part has been less fruit). But the program is easy to follow for me. The support from Dr. Donna and Dana as well as the group who shared my journey has been instrumental. I know that many of my friends out there have been struggling with health and weight for a long time. I am sharing my journey in hopes other will join me. This is NOT about weight loss. This is about health gain! I did not become obese overnight and I will not get rid of my fat overnight. But...I know how to do 1 day at a time really well. Thanks for the love and support!

About me

Dana Skaf, MBA (Body Wisdom Co-Pilot & Health Coach)

"With the Body Wisdom Lifestyle program, not only have I created the body I have always wanted, but my confidence skyrocketed. I no longer have anxiety; I have a new perspective on work and life balance and I am loving my life!”

Dana is certified in nutrition counseling, yoga and personal training. As the first Body Wisdom coach, Dana had great success in co-leading groups with Dr. Donna. She had since branched out leading her own groups and individual clients who have achieved exceptional results. She is also the co-developer of the online Body Wisdom Breakthru program. She is a lifelong learner and has also benefited from Ayurveda courses provided by the Deepak Chopra center. In her 20-year corporate career, she has been recognized as a distinguished individual for her exceptional customer service and professional integrity.

For most of her life, Dana searched for a healthy and balanced lifestyle. As a traveling corporate executive for over 20 years, she suffered from stress, anxiety and yo-yo dieting which had a tremendous impact on her physical and mental health.

Dana found the Body Wisdom lifestyle program and learned that creating healthy habits and eating balanced meals was the answer to managing her anxiety and keeping the weight off. Dana lost 30 pounds with the program and has kept if off while finding her home now as a graduate of the program. The Body Wisdom Lifestyle program unlike other restrictive approaches, is healthy, safe and encourages a balanced array of healthy foods such as fruits and bread. These are often prohibited in other programs!

As a healthcare executive coaching other business owners, Dana decided to create a new self-care life path for herself. She decided to combine her love of yoga and dance with her passion for nutrition and create a new career path providing weight loss and nutrition counseling to others.

Dana has helped countless others lead a healthier and more fulfilled lifestyle combined with long lasting weight loss. She continues to be on a physical, emotional and spiritual journey to transform herself as well as share her knowledge and wisdom with others.

Dr. Donna L. Goldstein, Founder

"I love teaching people my "secrets" for losing weight and keeping it off for good!"

Dr. Donna created the Body Wisdom Lifestyle program using her knowledge and leveraging her experience as a 30-year veteran psychologist and a former Corporate Wellness Director and health coach.

Dr. Donna shifted her eating habits, but more importantly, shifted her mindset. She embraced a more active and conscious lifestyle that included healthy cooking, yoga, belly dancing, mindfulness and more time in nature. These practices fit seamlessly into her day, allowing her to fully and effortlessly transition into a healthier lifestyle.

By making these lasting lifestyle changes, she lost 70 lbs and began to see improvements in energy, sleeping habits, balance, flexibility, vitality and especially confidence! Her goal has always been to feel better by achieving a healthy weight - not to be “model thin”. Dr. Donna is happily married and has maintained her curvy size 6 figure for 13 years. This program is not a diet, but a lifestyle that produces transformations that last.

After she realized her own success, she knew she needed to share her transformation with others who like her—are struggling to get off the roller-coaster of weight loss and weight gain. With that excess weight, many also experience ongoing ankle, knee and foot injuries. She consulted with other medical and nutritional professionals, incorporated several ancient global traditions, and centered her focus around lifestyle and longevity to develop her own unique approach and the Body Wisdom Lifestyle program was born and continues to evolve. She has guided 2,000+ people locally and globally to live healthier and happier lives and has successfully helped those clients lose over 6,000 lbs.

She is passionate about guiding her clients to become healthier, more balanced and confident – empowered to live a more mindful lifestyle. This unique program helps people achieve and maintain their healthiest weight, become more productive, get better sleep, enhance brain health, longevity and more!

When I first started, I was vey skeptical of another 'diet.' but quickly learned this is a complete change in how to think about food. I learned how to prepare food, how to meal plan ahead, and after a few days, new habits started forming and my entire relationship with food began to change. My only regret, I wished I knew about it sooner...Thank you Dana Skaf for your continued support in my new adventures.
