I lost 10 pounds, my skin has cleared, and bought my first swimsuit in 10 years!
Susan helped me change my relationship with food and eating. When we met I was experiencing low-energy and hadn’t lost all of my baby weight even though it had been over 2 years since the birth of my youngest child. I was unhappy with the way I looked and didn’t feel like myself. I wanted to work with a nutritionist for a long time, but feared working with someone that insisted on odd or restrictive diets.
I lost 10 pounds, my skin has cleared, I feel better, I look better, and my stress levels have decreased. I went on a family vacation this summer and bought my first swimsuit in 10 years! I’ve been able to prioritize eating in a positive way instead of feeling critical or irritable about what I eat and when I eat. It’s been a great experience and totally worth it!
Making small changes in my diet creates big impact.
I work long hours and knew I needed to eat healthier while at work and get ideas for cooking at home. Susan’s intensive session was really helpful in providing ideas for food to order while at work, optimal food for my energy type. The balancing analysis was a great new perspective and a helpful approach to my lifestyle. I learned that making small changes in my diet creates big impact. Plus planning my meals for better nutrition and energy. Susan’s program was tailored to me and my lifestyle with great actionable suggestions.
I didn’t look at myself in criticism or disappointment. For the first time in my life I was able to recognize my own beauty.
Before working with Susan I had lost and then gained over 50 pounds several times over the past 5 years. That even includes undergoing weight loss surgery. I felt like a failure. I wasn’t ready to give up, but knew what I was doing wasn’t working. I needed to do something different and knew that I couldn’t do it alone.
Susan’s program was a surprise to me at first. The first week I was expecting and dreading a food and exercise plan. But that’s not what I got. In fact, we didn’t even talk about food! We looked at my lifesyle: my schedule, how my day started, when I ate, how I handled stress, how I felt about myself and so on. I appreciated the holistic look at all the things impacting my health. I needed help focusing on was why I was reaching for the cupcakes in the first place and what other coping strategies could offer the same level of comfort.
While working with Susan my business was featured on TV. As I watched the television broadcast of myself, for the first time in my life, I was able to recognize my own beauty. Though I wasn’t physically where I’d like to be, I didn’t look at myself in criticism or disappointment. I have a better work-life balance, set more realistic task lists each morning, have a morning routine that helps me begin my day with ease, prioritize sleep, try many new foods and have a ton of new coping skills when I want to use food to make myself feel better. Susan offers support, accountability, and helps you recognize how you value and treat your body, and then teaches you skills on how to change to a healthier mindset.
My energy levels are at an all time high. We even saved money transitioning from eating out to cooking that went towards our home remodel.
Before I meet Susan I suffered from low energy and was feeling helpless and irritable. It was shortly after I moved cross country with my husband and daughter. I loved our work together. I felt like Susan was very responsive throughout the whole process. Susan offered support when I needed it and pushed me when I need it as well. Through our work together I am more equipped to take control of my own health. I have a better understanding of the foods that are right for me, how to prepare them, and make them work for my lifestyle. My energy levels are at an all time time and I am not as irritable as I was before our work.
I would highly recommend this course to women who are looking to get a better handle on their overall health. This is not just a program about food. This is about creating a holistic and positive lifestyle. This is a great program for new moms who experiencing difficulty with the transition of caring for a family. We even saved money transitioning from eating out to cooking. The savings went towards the remodel of our home which would haven’t been feasible before working with Susan.
I have more control of my life while not freaking out about things that are out of my control.
When I met Susan I was overwhelmed by a new job and struggling to find work-life balance while meeting demanding deadlines and training for a marathon. Susan listened to my issues to understand the pressures I faced and how I responded to them. Susan crafted a nutritional program that fit my lifestyle and educated me why the chances were important. I always felt Susan’s advice was personally suited to me. I’m now in control of my food intake as well as feeling more in control of my life while not freaking out about things that are out of my control.
I look at food in a much more holistic way which has given me a stronger sense of empowerment.
As an age grouper triathlete I consider myself to be pretty healthy already. Nevertheless, given my active lifestyle, I wanted to increase my understanding of different nutrients and foods and how they impact me physically, emotionally, and psychologically. Also I was looking for practical tools and methods to help me utilize this knowledge on a daily basis. Susan helped me achieve this goal. By integrating a plan into my specific lifestyle, she advised me on types of food to purchase at the store and provided easy, helpful recipes to cook throughout the week. Thanks to her I now understand how different foods impact my mood, sleep, and overall lifestyle. I look at food in a much more holistic way which has given me a stronger sense of empowerment.
Susan is a gifted coach who genuinely connected with me. She listened and provided the appropriate type of support I needed throughout her program. She has a passion for helping others and her positive outlook on life is contagious.
