 What do customers say?

I too was one of the lucky ones on the trial and I have say, I have never felt better. Katherine is a gentle soul and I so agree with Patsy about the non-threatening environment. I loved the program and saw wonderful results. I can fit into pants that I haven’t been able to do up for a long time. That said, it is not a diet, it is a lifestyle. As so many of us talked about, one isn’t hungry. I have tried every diet known to man since I was 15 years old and I am confident that this is program I can stick to. I will look forward to my weekly meetings with Katherine in order to keep on track. Thanks to Katherine and the wonderful supporting people in afternoon sessions. I would highly recommend Katherine’s counseling. She really knows her stuff!

I was one of the lucky people that was given the opportunity to take part in the 4 week weight loss program with Katherine. I have tried everything in the past and would do well for a while but would lose motivation, was starving and end up giving up. Katherine’s gentle approach,very informative, and interesting topics made it an easy program to follow. I found myself looking forward to the Wed. night sessions where I had to be accountable for my week but didn’t feel judged if I didn’t do well (like after Thanksgiving). Katherine teaches that it is a lifestyle not a diet. You feel better within one week once you are on the program. I have now signed up for the next 6 week program that starts next week. I plan to stay with Katherine until I reach my weight loss goal. I would highly recommend katherine for anyone who is serious about living a healthier lifestyle.
