WHAT PEOPLE SAY
— John, Police Officer, 42, 6 Month Program
"My top three goals upon starting the six month program were: 1) Weight Loss, 2) Gain Knowledge about better nutrition, 3) Lower blood sugar.
Jen was able to help me work toward these goals by giving me the knowledge to accomplish my goals. Jen gave me thorough and complete answers to all of my questions. When I asked for information, she went out of her way to make sure I got the information and made sure I understood it.
I have lost weight, lowered my blood sugar and have been able to change my diet to healthier and more natural foods; and most importantly, I can live and sustain this way of eating for a long time.
The most significant overall change I have noticed has been my weight loss. I have lost about 20 pounds.
I would describe Jen as passionate, knowledgeable and caring. She has a strong desire to help and see others succeed.
I would recommend Jen in a heartbeat. I would strongly recommend Jen to anyone needing help."
