The tab: Services start at $350 per hour.

Fitness regimen: Vinyasa yoga three to five days a week for 90 minutes. Twenty of those minutes are devoted to meditation.

Indulgences: Dark chocolate, gluten-free brownies and cookies.

M.O.: "My approach is rooted in digestion, so I look at the order and the combination of the foods themselves. For example, I never eat fruit after eating protein or starches. I also don't drink water while I'm eating because I believe that it slows down the digestion of food in my system."

Core advice: "Don't count calories or reduce food to numbers — 400 calories from potato chips and 400 calories from an avocado are not the same thing."
