“When I first reached out to Amy, I didn’t know what I was looking for. I did know that, for my entire adult life, I had bounced from one diet to another and nothing ever seemed to stick for a sustainable amount of time and I was tired of not liking what I saw in the mirror. I had to allow myself to be vulnerable and honest not just with Amy, but also with my own long-held beliefs about food, my body, and how both of those things connected to my self worth. After working together for 3 months, I feel confident about making self care choices for myself, especially when it comes to food.
As a result, I feel calmer, happier, and – added bonus – my pants are fitting more loosely. I can also say that I have never been more in touch with and proud of who I am as a human being and, most importantly, I have never loved myself more.” – Shaina C.
“I can’t believe that I waited until I turned 50 to try a different approach to weight loss. Even though I do Crossfit workouts 4-5 times per week and have tried several ‘clean eating’ challenges, I was still really unhappy with my body and experienced painful digestive issues on a daily basis. Every time I finished a diet or challenge I struggled to maintain the changes and went back to my old eating habits. I’ve been unhappy with my weight most of my life and I was ready to try something new. I worked with Amy to address my relationship with food and my body. We focused mostly on mindset changes and she gave me simple nutrition changes that made a big difference in my digestion. She also taught me practical techniques to address my stress levels and my perfectionist tendencies. I finally found an approach that works for me and feel more comfortable in my body. Most importantly, I feel happier, more peaceful, and feel free from my battle with my body.” – Beth G.
“Before working with Amy I struggled with my relationship with food. I would be able to stay on track with my diet for about a week but then I would cave into the cravings and end up eating everything that I was restricting in the first place. Through working with Amy, I was able to completely change my relationship with food and my body. Now even when there are cupcakes, cookies, or ice cream at work and social events I no longer feel tempted. I check in with myself to see if I actually feel like eating the food and I ask myself how hungry I am. If I feel like eating the food, I allow myself to eat it and I enjoy every bite. In the past I used to feel guilty every time I ate ‘bad’ foods which led to me eating more foods that weren’t healthy for me. Working with Amy has helped me change the food choices I make. It has also helped me to develop a self-care routine and have more respect for my body. I’ve been cooking much more in my own kitchen, using fresh ingredients, and have really brought out my creative side in cooking.” – Julia L.
“I have been struggling with weight problems for the past 10 years, gaining 5-7 pounds a year, and have been on and off diets and exercise without a routine. I have also been concerned about overall health, skin, and other health problems. Amy has helped me see for myself how my daily routine was affecting the way I was feeling, including the way I was dealing with stress and my eating habits. She helped me understand how the digestive system works, how your thoughts affect your emotional state, and the nutritional function of certain foods. I realized by working closely with Amy that nutrition has a purpose – and that your health is also connected to your emotional state of being and understanding nutrition allows you to find balance in order for you to be healthy. I have more energy, I’m less moody, and have seen great results physically. After completing my 3-month program, I have lost weight and don’t feel bloated anymore – I have also seen a change in my blood tests results that are continuing to improve.” – Elizabeth E.
“Food and I have never been friends for as long as I can remember. I only ate certain things every day to keep digestive issues at a minimum. My 3-months with Amy reminded me that food can be a good experience! She gave me many suggestions of different foods to try. Along with these suggestions she gave me easy to cook (I do not like to cook!) recipes that were delicious. She suggested supplements that not only helped my digestion but helped other health issues that we identified together. Amy is quite knowledgeable and very professional. Her communications during our time together were spot on. I highly recommend Amy to anyone with digestive issues who wants to enjoy food again!” – Sherry G.
