Indeed, her roster of highly satisfied clients is multi-generational, spanning the Five Towns, five boroughs and well beyond. Dr. Schindler specializes in fitness, food and behavioral issues for both children and adults and has offices in Cedarhurst and Manhattan.

Even during her tender years, Rachael showed great promise. Growing up in Forest Hills, New York, she was an honors student with an affinity for music and dance, playing classical piano and taking ballet classes. Upon graduating from Yeshiva University’s Stern College for Women where she majored in Biology, Rachael achieved success as manager of a real estate office and teacher. Not content to rest on her laurels she then received a degree in Forensic Psychology from John Jay College of Criminal Justice and another Masters degree and a Ph.D in Developmental and Clinical Psychology from the prestigious Ferkauf Graduate School of Psychology, with a Health emphasis. With her dance training and as the daughter of a holistic therapist mother, Rachael advocated the wholistic approach of psychological support; that sound nutrition and not overexercising are key components to successful weight loss, particularly for individuals who crave sugar or have difficulty losing weight.

That formula brought her to having her own office in Cedarhurst, an office in Life Gym as their new nutritional counselor in-house and an office in Manhattan. She received special training from New York Sports Club to be on the cutting-edge of fitness.

That Dr. Schindler enjoys a high success rate with her clients who wax poetic about her encouraging, sound and healthy approach to weight loss and maintenance attests to her expertise, consummate professionalism and dedication to her clients.

“I started my own diet food line in response to the need for gluten-free, no sugar added, high fiber foods to help people feel satisfied and tantalized while losing weight,” Dr. Schindler explained. It began with Quick ‘N’ Lite at Mauzone in Cedarhurst and soon expanded to her own commissary for The Five Towns Diet, featuring full and partial day delivery of a plethora of palate pleasing possibilities: meals, snacks and catering options, all fresh and absolutely delicious, affording Real-tasting food to the calorie conscious, while being devoid of guilt-producing consequences!

Masterfully prepared and orchestrated to culinary perfection, each menu option is a standout in its own right.. But arguably the most popular product is the celebrated Cauliflower Pizza, enjoying such success it has been prominently featured on the Today Show where it was savored by the hosts! Gluten-free, with no added sugar and high in fiber, it features an all-vegetable crust that is delicious and satisfying. Low in calories and ideal for dieters and diabetics, Cauliflower Pizza is on the “It List” of kids and adults, an incredible product that is labor intensive to make but easy for everyone to enjoy – especially in the family pack.
