I feel more informed about fueling my body
"I had worked with a nutritionist before and had minimal success, so I was not sure if this would be the same. I put a few feelers out there with others, and I appreciated Emily's quick response to see me and work with me. I have always worked out and lifted weights but have struggled with dropping even a few pounds. I felt healthy, I felt strong, but I also felt that the number on the scale should be moving, and I wasn't sure what else to do. I found myself struggling at night, I would want to snack and I think that was because I was hungry from not fueling my body properly. After working with Emily I feel more informed about fueling my body, which in turn has led to inches lost where they would not budge before. I am waking up feeling 'light' and ready to tackle the day, as opposed to being tired and bloated from the day before. I am able to comfortably wear pants that have been too tight for too long! I appreciated Emily continuing to tweak my diet program until we were both satisfied with the results. I also appreciated her timely response that was always full of details. I most certainly would recommend Emily's services to others. She is thorough and well versed in her content. Emily is supportive and will work with you as if you are her only client on her case load."

When people ask me how I am losing weight, I tell them about Emily
“I think my initial fear of meeting with Emily was that I would fail at losing weight, and fail yet another diet. From the beginning Emily encouraged me to not just follow a diet, but a create a lifestyle change. Being overweight was met with challenges that created a vicious cycle of not exercising because I was not comfortable and my knees hurt, and not losing weight because I was not exercising. After working with Emily I can now walk with ease, as well as ride my bike and swim. Inflammation is minimal, and my energy level is great! I still have a long way to go with weight loss but I am down 2 sizes and people are noticing. I do not feel like I am on a diet, but that I have made a lifestyle change. I am not hungry and do not feel deprived of food. I appreciate Emily’s encouragement, her wisdom about what foods are best for my health, and her availability to answer questions that I have. She is friendly and easy to talk to. I would absolutely recommend her services to others. When people ask me how I am losing weight, I tell them about Emily. I feel my health is important, and this is one way to make a positive impact on good health.”

Before I met Emily I was at a loss as to what I could do about my inability to lose weight
"In making an initial appointment with Emily, I was excited to find out if she could be able to help me with my weight loss goals. Before I met Emily I was at a loss as to what I could do about my inability to lose weight. I ate a very healthy diet and exercised 5-6 times per week. I even had my primary care doctor check all of my hormone levels to see if that had anything to do with my inability to lose weight (it did not). I was extremely frustrated because I had been doing everything that I was suppose to do in order to lose weight. Since I met with Emily, I have been able to lose some weight and I have more energy. I really enjoyed working with Emily because I felt like she invested in me and (even now) continues to follow up with me. She spent a lot of time looking into what I could change or add into my diet to help reach my goals."

I feel so much better, my clothes fit better, I have more energy
“I had no hesitations about deciding to work with Emily. I knew I needed a professional to guide me through my weight loss. I was gaining weight and not feeling good about myself, and it seemed no matter what I did I wasn’t losing. After working with Emily I feel so much better, my clothes fit better, I have more energy, and I’ve learned to stop eating before I over-indulge. Emily is very knowlegeable and I have already referred others to her. ”

I sleep sounder, my brain is less cloudy, and I am engaging more with people
"I have been overweight since birth, and starting dieting at a young age. I "yo-yoed" for several years and nothing seemed to work. I ended up having gastric bypass surgery, and lost weight, but that slowly came back on. I tried every diet, went to programs, groups, and exercised. The most important change I noticed working with Emily is consistent weight loss! And I enjoy eating! And I enjoy cooking again! I sleep sounder, my brain is less cloudy, and I am engaging more with people. My 8 year old grandson even talks to me about what I eat and has noticed I have lost weight. I could tell Emily wanted to help me. She listened to what I said and never judged me. She is the first person to figure out what might be wrong with my system. She is encouraging, positive, and never makes me feel like she is rushed. She also gives me good recipes to try. I would absolutely recommend Emily's services to others."
I was physically upset about my current diagnosis, but after meeting with Emily she made me believe in myself
"I had no hesitations about making an initial appointment with Emily, she is wonderful. I was physically upset about my current diagnosis, but after meeting with Emily she made me believe in myself and I was able to turn things around within a month. I have noticed my eating habits have changed, that my weight is down to a healthy zone, and I have turned my numbers completely around. Emily is very understanding and is caring and will give you the encouragement that you may need to make good choices about your health. I would 110% recommend Emily to anyone that would like to make life changes with their diet."
I never thought I could do it, but I have been able to
"I have been avoiding weight issues for a few years, so I was hesitant about making an appointment with Emily. My WEIGHT was over the top, I had trouble bending over tying my shoes, I was out of breath when walking, TIRED, etc. FOOD made me feel better, but I was angry with myself as I continued to eat to make myself feel better. I never wanted to admit how big of an issue it was. I wanted to do something about it, but at the same time, didn’t want to. After working with Emily I now have better health, I'm not using my sleep apnea machine, I'm walking fast, and exercising 2 -3 times a week. I also have much more energy. And I didn’t even notice, but others have, that I am doing more physical things with less effort than before the weight loss. I feel good about myself, and have dropped 2 sizes. I have been told that I look younger and look good. Emily is not judgmental, she is factual. She has made it easy to work with, and worked at my pace and was encouraging. I never thought I could do it, but I have been able to. I know this is a lifestyle change and not a diet. Thanks Emily : )"
I immediately felt a connection with Emily
"I first met Emily back in July of 2017 after being diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes. Needless to say I was devastated. My Doctor sent me to Emily. I immediately felt a connection with her and knew with her help I could reverse my diagnosis . She taught me how to eat healthy but realistically so I wasn't deprived. With her help I have lost over 30 pounds, work-out 90 minutes a day, my sugar is back in the normal range, and I am training for a mini (and I mean mini, lol) marathon. I will forever be grateful to Emily for all of her support and guidance. I would recommend her expertise to anyone."
Emily's encouragement and support has been so refreshing and positive for me, I really could never thank her enough
"There really was not hesitation about my initial appointment; I was actually happy to realize there is a professional in the plant-based arena of nutrition. My weight and health were in a very sad state of affairs. I was totally challenged with my health especially. I always struggled with weight and did probably most of the diets out there. My most success many years ago was weight watchers, but soon lost interest and gained the weight back plus more. I was a busy mom and really did not grow up with nutritional facts or limits on what to eat. I am from a loving Italian-stocked family, and the more we ate the better, "clean your dish", "want more"? so now at this stage of my life, my husband and i decided to activate ourselves and get a little self-centered to think and do more for our health. The weight stuff is just following us along.
The specific changes noticed with my health are beyond belief!!! Most important are the results of recent bloodwork for annual physical. I am a diabetic, on insulin by pump, and the doctor and pharmacist I work with had to keep raising the amount of daily insulin. My hgb a1c is now down 4 points. My liver enzymes on normal, and my triglycerides and cholesterol and normal. My doctor was absolutely so happy and said I now have bragging rights. That all "tasted" so good, and my weight is down over 20 pounds. Emily's encouragement and support has been so refreshing and positive for me, I really could never thank her enough. I do not think of eating as a diet anymore, it is a way of life.
Emily's personality of positive thinking and her smile and friendly voice are so contagious. I find Emily to be sincere and honestly enjoy her professional output to me. My recommendations would always be a plus 5 out of 5 and then even more, OFF THE CHART! Sometimes to hear things from others helps, but we all have to start somewhere and do things from ourselves and reach out to others. Emily is an excellent reach out to professional that is on the down to earth level that most all can relate to. Thank you Emily."
