Fred Bollaci is a true renaissance man. As an international influencer and diet and weight loss strategist, Fred is also a lifestyle and weight loss coach, motivational and inspirational speaker, and healthy gourmet food and beverage consultant to the hospitality industry.

Fred has been featured in Forbes, The Huffington Post, Reader's Digest, Livestrong, and on ABC and NBC, and in numerous local publications nationwide.

Since childhood, Fred has enjoyed a gourmet lifestyle of healthy gourmet food and international travel and is now known as "The Healthy Global Gourmet."

Fred lost 150 pounds in one year while living "La Dolce Vita" in 2009-10 and has since helped hundreds of people lose thousands of pounds. Since establishing his company, Fred Bollaci Enterprises, LLC in 2014, Fred has worked with hundreds of top chefs and written about hundreds of restaurants, hotels, spas, and exciting travel destinations across the country and in Italy, and has shared delicious recipes, tips for fitness and spiritual wellbeing, and has helped coach and motivate hundreds of people to lose thousands of pounds. Fred is sought after by top establishments, including hotels, restaurants, and wineries, for his expert evaluation and is sought by organizations — including public, private, educational, and not-for-profit — as a guest motivational and inspirational speaker.

In the first edition of "The Restaurant Diet, How to Eat Out Every Night and Still Lose Weight," a gourmet cookbook, diet book, and travel guide, Bollaci shares his unique four-phase diet program and offers several excellent tips and strategies to help diners learn to enjoy their favorite restaurants while losing weight and keeping it off. The book features 100 mouthwatering recipes from 100 of the top restaurants in the United States, from coast to coast, with nutrition facts and suggestions from the chefs themselves! It is the top "healthy gourmet" cookbook on the market today!

The second edition of "The Restaurant Diet, A Spiritual Journey of Self Discovery" features 100 pages of brand new personal content, in response to popular demand from his audiences, where Fred shares the most intimate details of his experience, sharing how he visited "The Other Side" when he nearly died from the effects of obesity at age 30 and was sent back to change his life, lose weight, get healthier, and go on to inspire and help countless others and achieve their true purpose.

Like everyone, Fred has had his share of challenges, even after losing the weight, which he was determined to overcome, including emergency back surgery, which forced him to learn to exercise and eat differently once again, making modifications to adjust to what the situation required. Through it all, Fred has kept a positive frame of mind and has enjoyed sharing his experience, strength, hope, and experience with others at his events and through private coaching and consultation. Learn how you, too, can live the good life through fitness, gourmet food, and fine wine. "It is about learning to enjoy and appreciate food and life, not about deprivation or punishment," said Bollaci. "It is about looking within and realizing we are each good enough and deserve a chance to be our best and to want to give ourselves the best."

In 2020, following the launch of his second book, Fred is launched his exclusive 1-on-1 Weight Loss & Lifestyle Coaching Program he developed after working with hundreds of clients for the past six years. This one-of-a-kind program offers daily access and support from Fred, weekly progress calls by Zoom or Phone, and the opportunity to have daily access to Fred by Messenger or What'sApp. It has proven especially popular during the age of COVID where people were forced to work remotely, struggled with emotional eating, and were unable or unwilling to go out. Today, Fred is continuing his successful Remote 1-on-1 Coaching Program, and is offering the opportunity for in-person consultations in select areas of Florida. Fred is also available as a motivational speaker for your organization, business, or event and can appear remotely via Zoom or Facebook live.
