What Clients Say

Teresa R.

I have struggled with intense periods, extreme mood swings, and digestive issues most of my adult life. After following this program, my cycle is regular with hardly any cramps, I'm in a great mood 99% of the time and bloating and gas are a thing of the past!

Grace B.

I love how the material is presented in an easy to understand way. I have read about some of the concepts before but never really understood the how or why. Susie does a great job at breaking it down so it makes sense and you understand the details of why. There is so much explanation and detail that went into this program. I love that I am able to try out a new concept and know if it works for ME.

Monica C.

I was getting burnt out on trying new diets I read about or a friend recommended. Nothing ever stuck, until I finally followed my own plan. I learned how to know what my body responded best to and create my own nutrition guide. Combined with IF, I have been able to lose 27 pounds and keep it off without a struggle. I've never felt healthier!
