How has your life changed since you’ve changed the way you eat?

I’ve always been a happy person but it’s a different kind of happiness now. I’m happy in my body, happy that I’m teaching my family healthy eating, and happier in all aspects of my life because I’m happy at the root. I also have so much energy now. Before the program, I use to struggle with getting out of bed in the morning. I was fine once I was up and moving but I would hit the snooze so many times! Now I just pop right up!

How is your weight and body function today in comparison to when you started?

I had more weight to lose when I graduated and I’m still losing. I’m now 52 lbs lighter since we started 4 months ago. When I started I was wearing a size large and wearing mostly leggings and now I’m an extra small and wearing a size 2. But outside of the weight, my asthma is so much better, I used to have chronic migraines and those are gone, and I had terrible stomach pains which are also gone.

If you had a family member that was struggling with inflammation and weight gain what would you say about the program and your journey?

Best decision I have ever made. Seriously, this has been life-changing. I would tell anyone to make the investment in themselves! I’ve never felt alone in this journey, I’ve enjoyed the entire experience and I want to share it with everyone I know. Do it, you’re so worth it!

On a scale of 1-10 what number accurately describes your experience with us?

10 if I must but a 12 or a 15 is more accurate!
