Client Stories
"I haven’t felt this great in a long time."
"I was feeling depressed but now I'm getting things done and have tons more energy. My pain is decreased too. I absolutely know it's all from how I'm eating now.

I've lost 15 pounds in 6 weeks and I was certain that wasn't possible because most things I've tried took forever or didn’t work at all including Weight Watchers in highschool to Plexus a few years ago.

I absolutely feel like I can keep this lifestyle up. I don't even have to think about it or food anymore and I can just eat whenever I want.  Did I mention I’ve done all of this while traveling and without exercising?  That's next."

- Sarah Rosebrock, 33 years old, Training Consultant
"I've lost 20 pounds so far and I don't have to calorie count or measure anything."
"I'm not as tired and I have a better attitude now.  My co-workers are noticing it too because I was down in the dumps before. 

I've lost 20 pounds so far (and we're not even 3 months in yet) and I don't have to calorie count or measure anything which I love to death.

I like the food.  It's a good feeling.  It's different than the same old diets that fail after time.  It's a lifestyle change. 

I'd absolutely recommend joining Trisha's program."

- Kelly Serfas, 31 years old, Bethlehem, PA
"I’m so happy to eat until I’m full."
“And that's a new thing for me. I don’t feel guilty when I eat now and that gives me so much pleasure. 

I know I’m headed in the right direction and that feels good. I’ve lost 9 pounds in 5 weeks too which is amazing because I was losing my confidence before. I felt helpless… eating less and exercising wasn’t working even though I was really trying.”   

- Nadia Afrin, MD, MPH, Kupio, Finland
"My debilitating pain is practically gone."
"I wanted to lose 75 pounds when I called Trisha. But then she told me it’s possible to stop the progression of Rheumatoid Arthritis and Lupus and maybe even reverse it so I signed up.  

My debilitating pain is practically gone in just 3 weeks! I’ve reduced my indigestion medication to once every 5 days vs everyday.  

I’ve lost 20 pounds so far and we’re not even 2 months into the program yet.” 

- Virginia Burton, Irmo, SC
"I’m comfortably wearing a dress that’s two sizes smaller now."
"It's been 6 weeks since working with Trish and I’m comfortably wearing a dress that’s two sizes smaller now. It feels good to take back control of my food and to make taking care of myself my first priority. 

I'm seeing and feeling myself shrink. I'm moving better and can bend over in seated position now from my reduced belly. 

My new diet has actually protected me in recent stressful situations which makes me extra happy."

- Ginny Padgett, Writer, Wife and Mother, South Carolina

"I reversed my type II diabetes." 
“I lost 24 pounds in 3 months eating optimally and I reversed my type II diabetes! My HbA1c went from 7.4% to 5.9% in 12 weeks! 

This happened after 20 years of unsuccessful Weight Watchers. I started eating this way because of a type II diabetes diagnosis, not to lose weight because I thought I couldn’t. I thought I was just built this way. 

I use to think I had no willpower when it came to food. It was my dirty little secret but now I know that’s not true. For the first time in a long time, I feel I can truly change my health.” 

- Swann Adams, PhD. Associate Professor, School of Public Health + College of Nursing, USC, Columbia, SC.
"I LOST 25 POUNDS IN 6 WEEKS WITHOUT EXERCISE."
"I lost 25 pounds in 6 weeks WITHOUT exercise (that's the next step though) and my energy is up like it hasn't been in years. Shelby lost 12 pounds in 2 months. 

The food is good too. It's not even like a diet. Any other diet I'd be crashed and burnt off of it and would've gained the weight back. We eat as much as we want now and get comfortably full. It's the first time we've ever known that we're actually full. 

We absolutely recommend joining the program. You can keep the weight off and it works."

- Robert Hildenbrand and Shelby Quevedo, Easton, PA
"I NOW I FIT INTO OLD CLOTHES I COULDN’T GET INTO."
"I’ve lost weight and friends have noticed these changes. 

I now fit into old clothes I couldn’t get into before. 

My face is thinner, my energy has increased and my digestion has improved. I'm proud of myself and I’m more in charge of my health."

- Amy Wright, age 54, Landscape Designer & Arborist, Elgin, SC
 
  "I wish I’d done this years ago."
“I now fit comfortably into pants I haven’t worn in several years and I’m eating loads of food! 

My total cholesterol dropped 60 points in 6 weeks.  I wish I’d done this years ago!” 

- Marcia Mikesh, Architect, Oregon
"my cholesterol dropped from 193 to 151."
“I had a 70% blocked LAD artery and couldn’t have surgery. Trisha advised me on how to change my diet and in two months my cholesterol dropped from 193 to 151. My weight dropped from 206 to 189 pounds. Deb is learning a new way of cooking. I eat as much as I want - of the correct foods. This is no fad, crash diet.”

- Joel Schmitz, Lutheran Pastor, Portland Oregon
"I’ll look back in a few years and say this made the difference." 
“It’s been six month since working with Trish -- I’ve lost 30 pounds, my cholesterol is now in the normal range (after 25 years of it being high) and I’m no longer on blood pressure meds after taking them for 7 years. 

I knew I needed help getting this lifestyle up and running and I think I can keep it up long-term now. There’s a good chance that I’ll look back in a few years and say this made the difference. 

I recommend working with Trish. 

I learned “I can do this,” how to stay full and that I don’t have to make everything from scratch to be successful. Trisha was helpful, knowledgeable and non-judgmental.”

- Tom Owens, PhD. Professor, University of South Carolina
"I was worried about the price, but it was worth every penny." 
"Before I worked with Trish, I took prescription diet medication and did Weight Watchers. They both helped me lose weight, but I got to a point of diminishing returns and got bored.  I was worried that I may end up with high blood pressure, diabetes and heart disease so I joined Trish.  

I lost 25 pounds and I’m getting compliments from friends.  I don't think I'm ever going back to the old way of eating. 

My cholesterol decreased by 60 points, my blood pressure went from 128/88 to 112/68 and my A1C dropped from 6.4 to 5.7 (all from a year ago).  I’m sleeping better and my digestion has improved too. 

I was worried about the price originally, but it was worth every penny.  I recommend signing up. It's made all the difference for me.  I now know I can do this, and the food tastes amazing. There are so many new things to try, and I can eat as much as I want!  Trisha rocks!

- Beth Hollingsworth, age 56, Database Administrator, Aiken, SC
"I'VE ALREADY LOST 15 POUNDS. I'm just thrilled with my results so far.  "
"It's been 7.5 weeks since I signed up and I've already lost 15 pounds. I'm very happy with my results and progress so far... my digestion has improved, my husband likes the food (in fact, he thinks this investment is one of the best things I've ever done), grocery shopping is easier, and the food tastes GOOD.  

I've never realized until now, that food can taste good and be healthy. I'm just thrilled with my results so far.  

I'm learning a lot of new information which I love... I'm 66 years old and I'm just learning how to eat... I'm realizing now I was clueless about nutrition, even though I didn't think I was."

- Kathy Bohannon Orscheln, Retired Emeritus Director of Admissions, Eastern Michigan University and proud Na Na :)

"NO MORE DIETING OR PORTION CONTROL."

"I’m losing 3 lbs. per week. I feel better physically, mentally and I have energy.   

No more dieting or portion control. I eat all I want of the right foods nature has to offer.”

- Faith Clemente, Legal Secretary, Newberg Oregon

Before Sarah Rosebrock joined the program, she was struggling everyday with physical pain, getting out of bed and poor sleep from discomfort, she was fearful of chairs, and exercising wasn't possible.

After 3 months, here she is talking about having lost 26 pounds (even though she wasn't concerned about weight loss), looking forward to airplane seats and dancing around Disney World in a pink tutu and on is on track to start exercising again and is no longer in such physical pain.

Ginny came to me when she learned that her late husband, Wade, was diagnosed with lung cancer and only had a few months to live. Ginny has Friedreich's Ataxia, a nervous system disorder and was in a wheelchair when we met and very limited coordination. Her weight and diet was holding her back from being more physically and emotionally in control of her life in a way that she desperately needed during this challenging time.  Within weeks, Ginny was successfully losing weight, gaining more mobility to better take care of herself and felt more in control of her life. Her family and friends are constantly complimenting her on her visible health changes.  Her story is incredible. 

- Ginny Padgett, Writer and Mother, South Carolina

I’ve lost 20 pounds in 4 weeks and my blood pressure is now normal — the doctor cut my medication in half!

"Within 30 days, I lost 24 pounds (while my husband ate ice-cream, chips and candy in front of me). The scale hadn’t moved for me in years even though I thought I was eating well. 

After 3 weeks, I received the best TSH reading I’ve ever had and my blood panel and blood pressure came back better than ever. I have hypothyroidism and I always felt defeated. My weight never moved no matter what I did. 

Some days are hard but I’m going for this 100%. I want to get my health back.”

— Linda Floyd, age 57, Accountant, Albany OR

I lost 8 pounds (over the holidays too!), my clothes got looser, my digestion improved, my energy increased and I’m sleeping better — an extra hour a night! 

And people have taken notice of my weight loss. I also didn’t think I’d like the food, but I did!”
