“Working with Sarah has been very rewarding in ways I had not even anticipated and more good things keep happening as I continue this journey. I have been able to save money due to my >20 pound weight loss as I am now able to shop for misses sizes rather than plus sizes; this saves me $5 an item! Also, because of Sarah, I am no longer pre-diabetic. In fact, I had not known that I was! When we began our journey she asked me to request certain lab work. This revealed that my A1c placed me in the area of pre-diabetes. This is no longer the case! My level has gone from 6.2 to 5.5 [over the course of our 3 month program together]. It is hard to explain but even though I still have a lot of weight to lose, I do not feel as heavy. This is most likely due to less inflammation in my body. I have physical problems that I will always have that sometimes affect my progress but Sarah just guides me through it. She is so patient and understanding. I have also become so much more aware of making healthy decisions by resisting the fast food burgers, etc., that I so enjoy. It is not worth that brief pleasure. I had not realized how inflammation effects so much more than just the gut and am now seeking out articles and trying to learn more about this on my own. I have really gained a lot from this program and hope to become more compliant as I continue. There is still much to learn and improve on.
I feel so much better and now look forward to accomplishing everyday tasks and hobbies again!
My heartfelt thanks to Sarah. I look forward to continuing our journey.”
“Sarah helped me find the reason I have slowly been gaining weight, and also provided research-based articles on healthy diets. As a result of implementing her suggestions, my nutrition has improved, I feel healthier, and I have lost a noticeable amount of weight in four months.”
“I have been working with Sarah regarding my digestive health and ability to heal my gut and physical issues through food and nutrition. —— Prior to this venture, I was experiencing inflammation in my body. My joints were achy and stuff and my stomach was constantly bloated. I was also suffering from fatigue and lack of energy. Within a very short amount of time (2-3 weeks) I started to notice a difference. My energy was better, my strength coming back and my gut was feeling a bit better. By six weeks, I was an entirely different person. My bloating was gone and there was no pain in any of my joints. —— I have lost a total of 22 pounds and am feeling much better. —— The opportunity to work with Sarah has taught me lifelong lessons. I understand my body and am able to ‘listen’ and feel what it is trying to tell me. I am able to use the tools she gave me to adjust my eating to heal myself. —— The information I have gained is invaluable. So grateful to Sarah!“
