Off Meds After a Decade [Testimonial]

tammytI love sending out my newsletter with tips and tools and inspiration to help you live your healthiest and happiest life.  It’s actually great motivation and inspiration for me to constantly grow, because the more I do, the more value I can offer you.  For example, this weekend, I’m attending a seminar to learn about some of the latest research on the topic of weight loss as well as hear from some practitioners who have had very good success with their patients.

And periodically, I like to share stories about my clients as inspiration and testimony to the possibilities, and to allow you to see that every client’s story is different, and so even with your unique situation, it is possible to regain your health. This week’s success story is about my client, Tammy.   When I began working with Tammy last September, it didn’t take long for me to realize that this was one committed and determined woman.

At each of our sessions, we’d talk about her goals and challenges, we’d agree on a plan for the coming two weeks, and the next time we’d meet, she’d have news about the action she had taken and how she was eating better, feeling better, and looking better.   One day, she very excitedly stood up and said, “Look!  I’m wearing skinny jeans!!”  And I wanted to cry.  Because at that point, it was way more than the jeans.  To me they represented the transformation she was undergoing.  A transformation that didn’t involve deprivation or punishment or guilt; it was more like enlightenment.  And so here is what she wanted to share to help inspire others:

Linda is Amazing! Working with Linda has changed the way I look at myself and my relationship with food. My goal was to change the way I eat for my health. After spending a decade on medication for acid reflux it finally got to the point where I could barely talk as I was always choking on acid. I just wanted to feel better and get off the medication. Working with Linda has helped me do just that. I have been off reflux medication for four months and by eating the right diet, it is no longer a problem. I have also reduced the hives I was getting by eliminating foods that didn’t work for me.  And as an added benefit I lost eight pounds, which made me very happy!! She provided me with healthy recipes for my busy lifestyle as well as the support needed to move forward. I have reduced stress and I sleep well due to her guidance. I can’t thank her enough for all she has done. I am on my way to a happier healthier future!

If you’re ready to make the commitment to yourself and want the support and accountability to make it happen, let’s have a conversation.  It just may change your life…

It is Possible for You Too [Testimonial]

I love to share client’s stories for many reasons:

  • I always get so inspired by their willingness to share their struggles and their commitment to making positive changes;
  • Their stories allow others who may be weighing in on their own health to hear what’s possible and understand that they’re not alone;
  • The results are often far more than they bargain for;
  • And finally, their experience helps them to see the big picture with their health and motivates them to continue.

This is true for one of my recent clients and I want to share her story with you. 

Before working with Linda, I was in need of a complete remake of my nutritional habits. I was lethargic and felt like an uber-blob. I felt bloated in my face and my abdomen all the time.

I chose to work with Linda’s detox program at first to plunge into a better way of eating. What I didn’t know is that I would get so much more than just how to eat better. Her program allowed me to take a long, hard look at my emotions around eating and address these at the same time.

The three most significant improvements I experienced during Linda’s detox program were:

  • Weight loss & healthier looking skin
  • Much more energy
  • Improved self-care both nutritionally and emotionally

I feel lighter from a physical standpoint and that transcends into an emotional one because of the content of this program. I was able to get rid of a lot of weight (water weight, poundage AND emotional garbage).

Linda’s program is not only a program of information and tasty ideas ~ which it is. But, it is also filled with empathy, compassion and understanding. You can feel it every time you read something from her. She has a wealth of knowledge and understanding that is both supportive and inspiring. Her kindness has helped me make some changes that my body and spirit have long been waiting for and I’m certain will be long lasting.

~Laura Clark, Hope Valley, Rhode Island 

What I’m most thrilled about for Laura is that she continues to practice healthier eating habits and continues to lose weight ~ as a beneficial side effect.  To me, weight loss is not the main objective I would like to see my clients achieve–better health is what I want for them; and if they do lose weight on their journey–which they often do as a result of their healthier habits, then I’m super thrilled for them.

For Laura, she told me that she is far more aware and mindful of what’s she’s eating.  In addition, she’s simply making wiser choices across the board.  For example, she’s now eating more regularly, rather than concentrating most of her food later in the day.  While she would typically have a cup of coffee for breakfast, she now chooses a warm bowl of oatmeal.  And when she eats out, she also makes healthier choices without sacrificing what she likes.  The other night, for her birthday dinner out, rather than a stuffed lobster, she ordered a steamed lobster and thoroughly enjoyed it.

Improving your health doesn’t mean a future of deprivation.   We all know this doesn’t work.  The key is to develop your own personal relationship with food that satisfies your body, mind, and spirit.  If you’d like support in this area, contact me today – I’d love to help!
