What members are saying

” Brain Fog Be Gone. Jay and Jill provided the attention and advice that I needed to understand where I was in my personal journey. During the first consult, I finally understood the true picture of my health in the last two decades, and received both details and advice about how to achieve my goals of weight loss, address premenopausal symptoms and prevent elevated blood sugars from my future! I lost 17 pounds in the first 3 months.  Also, I don’t feel tired anymore in the middle of the day but only when it’s time to sleep.  I do not seek a large coffee or smoothie around 3pm to give me more energy. I am so grateful for the invaluable service they gave. “

” As I went through menopause I found my jeans didn’t fit anymore, hated the muffin top I was developing, felt very uncomfortable, out of shape, lethargic, just couldn’t shake the last 10 lbs no matter what I did. Jill and Jay developed an easy to follow program, and the rest is history.  I just turned 60 and never looked or felt better! Lost 10 lbs effortlessly within a few weeks, my vitality increased, energy through the roof, happier, and the best part, no muffin top! Jill and Jay are the best team for getting me back to my happy, healthy, slim self! “
