Amanda educated me, giving me the knowledge to choose versions of my favorite foods. End result, I lost 30 pounds over the course of a year and have not struggled keeping the weight off. She taught me not to count calories, rather look at the nutritional importance of the food I now consume and portion control. This way of thinking was my key to a healthier diet and lifestyle. Amanda is a born teacher that has the remarkable gift of simplicity. Her advice is spot on making nutrition fun, informative and easy to understand. I highly recommend her services.
