April M., Private Practice Client:
I have struggled with Anorexia for most of my life. When I moved to LA years ago, I had trouble finding a dietitian. I was young and scared and new to recovery. I will never forget the first time I talked to Lauren. She cared and she fought for me. Healthy Eating and Training immediately took me under their wing and helped me build a foundation of health, confidence, and freedom. With their support, I learned how to love and appreciate my body - it wasn’t an easy task and they were patient with me. Encouraging, gentle when they needed to be, yet firm when my recovery would teeter. 8 years later, in the middle of a relapse, Lauren went above and beyond to help me get the care I needed. Without their overwhelming support, I wouldn’t be alive today. Healthy Eating and Training isn’t just a business, it’s a group of individuals changing the world one person at a time. I know this because they changed mine. Healthy Eating and Training has inspired me to fight, thrive, and most of all - pay it forward. Thank you from the bottom of my heart, Lauren and Healthy Eating and Training.
Leanne V., Private Practice Client:
Learning to eat healthy, balanced meals and snacks made up of foods I really enjoy has helped me live free from the tyranny of food obsession. I am proud of my grocery cart and my refrigerator for the first time in my life, and everything healthy thing I buy is something I am looking forward to eating! My medical tests prove that what she has taught me works – and so does the scale! Thank you, Lauren!
Karen B., Corporate Client:
I went to see Lauren after having my 2nd child. I didn't think I was overweight but knew I had a few pounds to lose. I wanted to know how to maintain a healthy lifestyle. I thought it was going to be another weight loss program that would tell me how all food I love is bad for me. Instead I came away from the program with a much better understanding of food – what is healthy, what is not and how much I should be eating. Lauren walked through different plans with me, showed me options and talked about how to curb cravings. By following her simple meal guidelines and sticking to a routine the weight started to fall off. A year, 20 pounds and 3 dress sizes smaller I can say that Lauren's program changed my life and the way I look at food.
Elizabeth, Corporate Client:
Lauren is great to work with and provides excellent service to her customers. She creates easy-to-understand training material and creates a dynamic, interactive learning environment for all who attend her sessions. She is always flexible and always accommodates her corporate client's business needs. I have thoroughly enjoyed working with her and I highly recommend her services to anyone who is interested in making positive changes towards a healthy lifestyle.
Barbara S., Private Practice Client:
I was pretty much at the end of my rope when it came to figuring out how to eat better and get healthy. Just like those commercials say, “I tried everything but nothing worked.” After just a few short sessions with April, I was well on my way to a much healthier life! Her information was clear and I was provided with supporting documents that I was able to take home and refer to between visits. So you'll learn not only what to eat, but how much of it, what you should be eating it with, and how it all works. To date I've lost over 20 pounds, have dropped two sizes, and am as fit as ever. But best of all, I really understand how food works!
Tina K., Private Practice Client:
I am thrilled with your services and particularly amazed by the accuracy of your metabolic testing! I am hypothyroid and was having a hard time losing the last 10 lbs. The test you performed found that my metabolism was unusually slow even though my diet and exercise regimen was not too far from where it should be. Based on the results of the metabolic test, you suggested I see my doctor. My doctor reviewed the results, took blood, and indeed found that my thyroid was underperforming. Thank you so much for your help and recommendations. I feel I now have a plan in place to lose those last few stubborn pounds.
Natasha C., Private Practice Client:
I've learned so much from Lauren about my health and nutrition. She's such a great coach, cheerleader, and all around wonderful person. I've often thought that she would make a fantastic therapist as well! I'm so grateful for the help she's given me in overcoming my eating disorder. Thank you!
Jocelyn F., Private Practice Client:
My entire recovery started with you. You delicately confronted me on my disorder. You kindly encouraged me to get well, to stay strong, to see it through. Your support was unconditional; free of judgment and full of empathy. If you had not been so kind and encouraging, I don't know if I ever would have mustered the courage to change. Thank you for giving me my life back.
Rick B., Private Practice Client:
With a desire to lose the 30 pounds I had slowly put on, I went to see Lauren. After going through the preliminaries, we discussed a number of eating patterns (I won't call them diets) which I began to follow. The key was the weekly visits. There's nothing to keep you on the straight-and-narrow like having to climb on that scale every week. Thanks to Lauren's knowledgeable, caring direction, I had lost 19 pounds in 3 months. Though I've been out of town for the last six weeks, I've been eating as though Lauren was sitting beside me. And it's worked! I've continued to lose weight and plan to begin my weekly visits when I return. I've tried a number of dietitians over the years, but none have resulted in the surprising progress I've found with Lauren.
