Meet the Founder of SpiceFit, Dr. Melina Jampolis
Over the span of her career, Dr. Melina Jampolis’ focus has been clear: to help as many people as possible achieve their ideal health and weight goals. Creating SpiceFit is just one of her many endeavours to further this mission.
Dr. Melina started her career specializing in internal medicine and went on to become one of only a small number of board-certified physician nutrition specialists practicing in the United States, as well as President of the National Board of Physician Nutrition Specialists.
Now living in Los Angeles with her husband and young sons, Dr. Melina maintains a small private practice where she continues to specialize exclusively in nutrition for weight loss, disease prevention and treatment, as she has done for the past 15 years. She is also dedicated to the prevention of childhood obesity, particularly in low income, minority populations. She currently runs bi-weekly family nutrition counseling at the Bresee Foundation in Los Angeles and serves on the advisory board of schoolmenu.com which provides parents with the tools to raise healthier kids.
SpiceFit is the newest addition to Dr. Melina’s nutritional wheelhouse. With a key ideology of targeting weight loss to prevent disease it falls completely in line with her ongoing mission: To help people get healthy, and stay healthy, in a way that they can easily maintain themselves.
As the former host of Discovery Network’s FitTV’s Diet Doctor, and the current diet and fitness expert for CNNHealth, Dr. Melina has always held strongly to the philosophy that nutrition is its own preventive medicine. But she understands that we all live busy lives and that many diets are unrealistic (and unmanageable) for the average person. She became determined to make her teachings easily manageable by combining lifestyle-based eating and exercise programs, and by bridging the gap between “expert” research and the “real-life” choices that people face daily.
Dr. Melina’s dietary tips often encompass tips like “how to snack” and she believes that taste is always key. If you choose a snack that tastes good, you’ll feel truly satisfied and will be less likely to overeat. The beauty of SpiceFit is that spices are high on taste and add flavor to every meal without the calorie guilt.
SpiceFit harnesses the ancient power of popular, age-old spices. Many which have been used for centuries. The Indian tradition of Ayurvedic medicine has long heralded the power of spice but modern scientific research is only just starting to catch up. Dr. Melina believes that when nature’s best ingredients meet cutting-edge science, incredible things can happen.
Dr. Melina’s goal is for SpiceFit’s natural ingredients to play a valuable part in helping you reach your health goals and she believes this so wholeheartedly that she offers a SpiceFit promise for every one of her formulas. If you don’t love your SpiceFit product or are not satisfied with the results, she will issue a refund, no questions asked.
With an honest and realistic approach to nutrition for weight loss and optimal health, Dr. Melina’s systems have a reputation for being attainable. Because of this she has become a highly sought after public speaker, and has been interviewed by many prominent publications including USA Today, New York Post, Prevention, WashingtonPost.com, Forbes.com and Women’s Health. She has also shared her expertise across such shows as Live with Regis and Kelly, the Today show, Anderson Live, The Dr. Oz. show, CNN, FOX News and FOX Business Network and is on the medical advisory board for Better Homes & Gardens, VIVMAG and Heart Healthy Living magazine.
She has penned several acclaimed books including The No-Time-to-Lose Diet: The Busy Person’s Guide to Permanent Weight Loss, The Calendar Diet – A Month by Month Guide to Losing Weight While Living Your Life, and The Doctor on Demand Diet – a companion piece to the highly popular Doctor On Demand telemedicine app.
In addition to SpiceFit, Dr. Melina is also the founder of Dr. Melina Protein Bars, and CoolSculpting: The Body Sculpting Studio—the only FDA-cleared procedure to use controlled cooling to safely target and eliminate diet and exercise resistant fat.
