Special Offer

Location: NYC and New Jersey
Height: 5'7"
Weight: Casciaro doesn't weigh herself, but wears "a size 8."
Clients: Confidential, but includes "film actresses and TV personalities."
The tab: $285 for a one-hour consultation. Follow-up half-hour appointments will set you back $145 per session.

Fitness regimen: Works out almost every day for at least 30 minutes, alternating among elliptical machines, treadmills, swimming, tennis, and bike riding. Strength trains four times a week.

M.O.: "Essentially, live as the Italians do and enjoy beautiful, in-season food that's prepared with care and eaten slowly."

Core advice: "I encourage clients to focus on eating the way someone at their goal weight would eat. This helps them realize the discrepancy in their choices and serving amounts — but no calorie-counting!"
