Here's What Women Are Saying

On Nutrition

Peg - you have truly been like my guardian angel! I am amazed at your continued patience with me over the course of this journey. Your children and grandkids are so very lucky to have you !!!  Thank you for everything!   

Your six month program is great!  I've managed to make many lasting positive changes.  There were bad habits that I would never thought I would break.  There were harmful habits that I didn't even realize I was doing.  Thanks for helping me draw attention to areas I needed to focus on, and remove the obsessions that weren't helping me. I appreciated that the entire program was at my pace - and that I never felt pressured or guilty (as I have experienced in other programs.)....

Ten Things Snack Food Companies Won't Tell You

Snacks have become an American way of life.  In my observation, I think they have because we don't typically have enough meals anymore.  Skipping lunch, or even dinner because of overbooked schedules, has placed snacking as a coping tool for hunger that should be satisfied with a healthy meal.  

Grocery Store Labels

When you’re trying your best to make wise decisions at the supermarket, the most reliable choices will always be simple real foods like fruits, vegetables and grains. After that it gets a little complicated, mainly because regulations on food manufacturers are confusing and leave lots of wiggle room. Here are a few simple tips when you make selections of packaged food products in the grocery store: 1, “natural” means nothing more than it’s not made of plastic “best life seal” means nothing except Bob Greene, Oprah’s coach, approved it.
