Client praise

“Before working with Mary I was struggling to do everything possible to lose weight. I was constantly dieting and was so frustrated by my lack of results, I felt like I was going to be stuck in this pattern forever. Mary helped me to sort out my food sensitivities, digestion issues, and balance a hormonal imbalance that I didn’t even know I had! She taught me how to incorporate vegetables and other nutrient dense foods into my diet that my body was missing and what helped me develop a new way of eating that fuels my body best. I lost the excess weight and have so much more energy now”

“I’ve had a really bad relationship with food ever since I was a teenager. I was food labeling, restricting, and overly working out to compensate for “being bad” with food. It was all I ever thought about and it was exhausting. Mary changed all of that for me. Now, I feel amazing and I no longer think of food as the enemy. Her “reprogramming” method changed my life and allowed me to see where I was stuck in my life that led to this in the first place! I am happy to say that I’m now an intuitive eater and feeling great in my skin.”

“I had bad digestion issues that made meal times hard for me. I was always tired!!! As I’m writing this I can’t believe I’m regular and have abundant energy. I even look forward to eating my vegetable centric meals- who knew! Thanks Mary!”
