You have quite the interesting background from comedic actress working with Melanie Griffith to weight loss expert?
"I had the perfect life; sweet and hot hubby, two delightful daughters, a bevy of celebrity friends, a thriving career, a brand new home in the Palasades (that looked like a palatial palace) which used to be Princess Grace's, and a calendar filled with invitations to spend time with Larry David and his fab wife Laurie, at the height of Seinfeld (they bought the home my husband and I built) and yet I was miserable and...FAT!!"
Why did you decide to create Weigh Less with Love?
"My life-altering moment happened literally the first night in a new home when my husband and I clicked on the television and saw a rerun of a comedy series I was a regular on, called “Bizarre,” created and directed by Bob Einstein. I portrayed a hysterical woman reporting to a police captain and policeman that I had just gotten (bursting into tears) “graped.” The two men say, “You mean—” She cuts them off and screams “Grape! Grape! Don’t make me repeat it—Uck! it’s such an ugly word!” After I finish describing what happened (substituting new words for rape) and make my exit, the policeman asks the captain whether he believed my story. The captain responds, “Are you crazy? Who in their right mind would want to grape her? Did you get a look at the size of her bass?” (Referring to my fat ass.) Gulp!"

What makes your weight loss system stand out more than the rest?
"My background in psychology, nutrition and personal weight loss experience
congealed into a protocol and overall approach that really brought about results.
Using the protocol that worked for me, several months after my
a new Melissa emerged, with a weight loss of 40 pounds, which I have maintained for the past 26 years. I made it my life’s mission to “pay it forward.”
My thriving private practice runs the gamut from obesity related issues, compulsive emotional eating and self-medicating with food, to stubborn plateau frustration, and sugar addiction.
I treat the interplay of behavioral, psychological, medical, and nutritional components to create long-term success with weight loss."
I hear you are partnering with Vivacity Life Center in Stamford?
"I am thrilled to announce that, as of January 2016,
I have partnered with
Vivacity Life Center,
a physician-owned health and wellness medical center located in downtown Stamford, Ct.
I will be heading their weight loss department and offering a personalized low-carb, metabolic-enhancing protocol to ensure rapid weight loss, along with a unique
"brain retrain" program that targets stubborn weight loss due to insulin and leptin resistence."
Melissa is masterful. I was skeptical at first because I had already been to a diet doctor and two other diet coaches and they weren’t able to help me shed the weight.
Melissa was different. I loved her the minute I met her and as she opened me up and saw the pain behind my sunny smile, I felt safe to be honest for the first time. I discovered the real reasons why I was turning to food and started to really work on those issues. It wasn’t easy but she wouldn’t let me quit. Finally I made it into “the winner’s circle” as Melissa calls it and I’m so thankful.
Melissa Love is a first class coach, wow! I went from 232lbs to 176lbs, 56 pounds and I owe it to her! She understood my medical problems (diabetes and high blood pressure) even though I was so skeptical, she kept saying "Trust the science." My doctor is blown at my numbers. I am no longer on any meds and feel 30 years younger. M. Love is a smart, tough cookie and calls you on your B.S. She also has a real sweet side and you can trust her with your life.She makes it so easy to talk to her about deep stuff and you know she'll go to the grave with your secrects. M.Love's, a real class act.
