"Being a Type 1 Diabetic, I have been exposed to more nutritionists than the average person. They all spoke in terms of numbers and counting which has been my way of thinking since I was diagnosed as a teenager. However, this did not register with me. For some reason, the numbers did not "add up" andI continued to gain weight. As a 23 year old recent college graduate, I had a lot on my plate. Literally. I was accustomed to the college lifestyle of binge drinking along with eating exuberant amounts of food. After a night (or day) of gluttony, I felt so horrible I would then find myself searching for the next fix to shed my excess weight. This lifestyle was a downward spiral.
I moved to a new city with a new job and decided I needed a new lifestyle. I found Jess through Instagram and after reading the other testimonials and about her program, I decided to reach out as a final plea for help. After speaking to Jess during the consultation, I knew my spiral would come to an end. Jess understood my life stressors and related through her own experience which was fundamental for my success. It is so reassuring to know I am not the only one who has experienced this battle. I am at a time in my life where I crave change and guidance, and I found that through this program.
Jess helped me understand how to be more mindful with not only food, but in everything I do. What I put in my body for energy was definitely the main topic of discussion but I found myself changing other aspects of my life as well. I did not realize the source of my "college lifestyle" was stress which led me to put on excess weight and feel like crap overall. Speaking with Jess biweekly allowed me to understand the connection between my food choices and stress and how to simplify it all. She taught me how to begin my day more mindfully so the rest of my day would be set up for success.
I highly recommend this program for all! Jess was so helpful in regards to understanding our food choices and how those choices effect the balance within our body and our life! Jess offered simple and seamless suggestions through her guide book and recipes that I could easily adapt to my life as a thriving young adult. I have lost weight (and continue to!), stabilized my blood sugars and stabilized my life through this program with Jess. I truly value the time, respect and empathy Jess was able to relate through our conversations and will continue this simple stress-free way of eating and lifestyle!"
