Surrounding yourself with positive reinforcement, establishing a new habit of healthy eating, and seeing the positive results coming from your new lifestyle will only further motivate you to continue keeping your determination throughout the year and beyond.

A Message to You from colleen, Registered Nurse & Owner

What originally happened was my husband was following this plan, and for about six weeks I watched him do this and I thought it was very healthy and very effective, plus people were approaching him telling him he looked great and asking what he had been doing and “how can I get this product”.   He lost 45 pounds in three months.   I actually decided to try it myself because I had been trying to lose ten pounds for about a year and thought I was eating right, and it worked for me too!  I lost 20 pounds and have been maintaining it.  I feel great and the acid reflux and indigestion that I used to have frequently is gone.  For me, as a nurse, to help people achieve their weight loss goals and to see many of our clients either reduce or eliminate their medications and enjoy good health is the most rewarding.
