Hi Margaret.  Vince and I have been on the meal plan for three weeks now and we just love it.  In fact, I have some terrific news to share with you.  I had blood work done last week and my doctor could not believe the results...........and neither could I!  My total cholesterol has never been so low, 163.  LDL and triglycerides have never been so low either.  I am simply thrilled with the results without using drugs.  Your plan is so easy to maintain and the food is so delicious.  We have been experimenting with some recipes as well.  Here is one for you for fall.  Stir a scoop of organic pumpkin puree (Trader Joes) in to your oatmeal with one tablespoon each of flax, hemp and chia seeds.  Add a little maple syrup and 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract and some cinnamon and two tablespoons of pumpkins seeds for seasoning and crunch.

Here's to good health!

Margaret has really changed my life in more ways than one. With her help and continued support I made three little changes in my life at a time. By the end of my time with her I lost 26 lbs and kicked my horrible soda, fast food, and ice cream habits. I no longer crave any of them. I actually look forward to exercising every day. I am also at a much better place emotionally. Even my children have commented on the wonderful change in their mom.

Thank you Margaret!

I just wanted to let you know that I have followed your advice and have lost 4 lbs!

My eating has improved tenfold. No “weird” food – just lots of fresh fruit, fresh or frozen veggies and very few meals out. When I go out to dinner, I choose the fish when I can. I love rolled oats for breakfast, with fruit and nuts - sometimes a poached egg on whole grain toast and fruit. I am really noticing a difference and am thrilled!

So life is good. All the knowledge you have passed on to me has been incredibly helpful. One of my favorite sessions was the trip through Trader Joe’s – amazing! Thank you, thank you, and thank you! Oh yes, since my visit to the doctor last March, I have lost 20 lbs! Slow and steady and really no pain – I am excited!

We appreciated being able to just say it like it is, and having you say it right along with us (ie, you’re realistic and light/funny about it). You gave us really helpful advice and encouragement and know how to bring all members of the group together.

I wanted to say, I am loving this cleanse! Not only do I feel better, but I lost 3 pounds! I really thought I would be breaking the rules every day so I am pleasantly surprised that I have been sticking with it.

Two things that surprised me about this cleanse so far: 1) apparently I do not NEED bread as much as I thought I did… who knew I could go about my day without craving it or even thinking about having some. 2) I really like the brown rice pasta… much better than the whole wheat pastas… to add to it, my kids love it too so this works even better.

This clean lifestyle has really awoken the inner chef in me! I have *never* been one to experiment with cooking. It’s always been to follow a recipe, open a jar of something, or nuke a frozen meal. But more and more, I have been branching out and just “winging it”. I made such a fun “harvest medley” as I called it last night that I was really proud of myself.

I've even developed a new strategy of how to incorporate clean eating into the entire family. After I prepare a clean meal, I tell the family to taste it and if they don’t enjoy it, think about what we could add to it that would make them like it more. I think it will work moving forward to make sure I’m not making separate meals for the kids and to ensure they’re getting a healthy foundation to their meals.
