"We have just returned from a week in Maui. We ate plenty of good food, and did a lot of exploring by automobile. Guess what? No weight gain, and we came home energized and ready to roll. We followed many of your ideas, walking on the beach daily (before dawn!), and eating very well but lightly. Had great fun, and aren't paying "the price" now that we're home. What a kick! "
"I was already frustrated with my weight management -- or lack of it -- and when my cholesterol went up, my doctor recommended I have a visit with Angela. My husband and I are both fairly nutritionally savvy, but Angela was able to point out flaws in our thinking, and suggest ways to improve our diets. Did it solve all our problems? Of course not. What did happen is that we feel better, have a better handle on our health and weight, and are working intelligently toward a healthier life style. One visit was enough to get us going, but we'll go back in a heartbeat if we feel the need for a refresher. Thanks, Angela!"
“While I thought I was eating the right food, Angela taught me how to eat the right combinations of food. Her vast knowledge and her passion for helping people has really made a difference for my family’s health and me. Thank you Angela!"
“I have been a nurse for over 25years and been on "diets" many times over the years. I thought I knew a lot about nutrition and what I should and shouldn't eat. I was diagnosed as glucose intolerant last year and after almost a year of diet changes on my own, my Dr. recommended I see a dietitian. Angela was very professional and was able to help me take a closer look at my eating habits. She helped me make some very doable changes that have helped me keep my sugar levels in a much better range. She is encouraging and yet helps hold me accountable for what I eat which is what I needed.”
"For 15 years I have battled type II familial hyper-cholosterolemia. Every time I went in to the doctor I got the same bad news; "your cholesterol is lower but needs to go lower." I quit smoking, changed my diet to what I thought it should be, began exercising, began medication (three different types over the years) and even then, I got the same bad news. Then I began counseling with Angela. And for the first time ever, I was told that my cholesterol levels were deemed controlled! Thank you Angela."
"Angela is a pleasure to work with. She is interested in my success. She gives me the background to the changes I need to make. She shows me options that are easy to achieve. And painlessly led me away from the things I need to avoid. Truly, it has been a pleasure to have someone as energetic and knowledgeable on my side and it has shown real results too! Thank you Angela."
"I am a 63 year old female and have Diabetes 2. In January of this year I was on a downward spiral. I had no energy and could barely function day to day, my blood tests were terrible and my weight was out of control. One day the physical therapist I was seeing asked how I was, I replied I felt like a beached whale. I was given Angela’s name. I contacted her and together we set up a plan for a Life Style Change.
By July there was great improvement in my blood work. My numbers were down a lot my total cholesterol went from 242 down to 191. Angela has continued to help and support me. Now I have much more energy, a better outlook on life, and am continuing to try to improve on my Life Style plan. My blood sugars are normal and I have lost 40 + pounds. As an added bonus my husbands Dr. called with his blood work and his numbers were also down. He told the Dr. "It's got to be my wife’s diet!" Thanks Angela!"
“Angela’s counseling was offered to employees of the company where I am employed as a part of our emphasis on wellness. The only question I asked of her was ‘Can I become healthier, i.e., loose weight without going on a diet?’ I am 59 years old, and in spite of being over weight, was a relatively healthy, active person. Her answer to me was, yes you can. We discussed my eating habits and my fitness program. She provided helpful information which enabled me to design my own program. Since our first session, I have lost 30 pounds, walk about 15 miles per week, work out with a personal trainer once a week and all without being on a diet. That does not mean I have not changed what I eat. My choices have definitely changed, but more that that, I am more self aware of taking care of myself. The best part for me about working with Angela, is that I see her approaching her counseling on a very individual basis. She does not bring a ‘one size fits all’ program that everyone has to buy into. She listened to me and what I wanted to accomplish and that is where we began. For the first time in my life, I believe that the weight I have lost and will loose, will not come back. My body has adapted to each change as if that were the most natural thing in the world. Thanks Angela.”
I have been living for years with the symptoms of Irritable Bowel syndrome or Food intolerance: gas, bloating, and diarrhea. These being the diagnoses handed to me by GI doctors after work-ups which came back negative. They gave me a list of probable food groups which could be the culprits and sent me on my way. I did the best I could with that information but it still left me fighting those symptoms. Having this has caused me to be less social than I would otherwise be because of the embarrassment of my symptoms.
Then Angela told me about her Leap program and it sounded like something I should look into for more answers. My blood test showed I was reactive to many foods and chemicals that I had no idea I could be. These were things that were in many of the meals or snacks that I was eating everyday, which I thought were completely harmless to me. I have been on the program now for about 3 months and I feel so much better. I would say it has been a complete success.
The added benefits of doing this are it has changed my life. I used to shy away from participating in activities because I didn’t want to be embarrassed by my symptoms, but now it is such a relief to not even have to think about them. Also I use to have a yo yo effect to my weight, and on this program I no longer have cravings for things like sweets which just caused me to eat too much and ruined my momentum for losing weight, my weight is more consistent now. One last thing is, I have always been an exerciser, but with all the bloating I could not get a nice flat stomach, no matter how I worked it, now I have one and it is still flat after I eat a meal. Anyway I am hooked , thanks Angela for all your guidance.
