“I just wanted to say keep up the good work! My clients have been way more successful at losing weight since implementing your recommendations!”
“It's great to be able to offer real solutions that work to clients who have struggled with weight loss for a long time...”
“I was very excited to gain so many strategies to apply personally and with my future clients, especially the damage control.”
“Thank you for an excellent workshop today at the National Obesity Summit. It was so refreshing to hear a dietitian not be afraid to think outside the Canada's Food Guide and be so confident with her material and presentation.”
