Praise for the 30 Day Nutrition Upgrade “The upgrade has changed my life! I feel more energy and less brain fog, I have lost 3 pounds, decreased my sugar intake (without feeling deprived). The program helps me to make better choices on a more consistent basis. This is amazing.”

“I’m loving the program! Feeling great and so psyched to be making sustainable changes rather than embarking on yet another intense, radical, short-term overhaul that ends up fizzling out.”

“I really enjoyed that, for me, it came down more to what I SHOULD be eating rather than what I shouldn’t eat."

"[T]his is a lifestyle...not a diet!"
