Testimonials

“We discovered Adrienne as a resource through the Parkinson’s Foundation as Ed was, for the first time ever, experiencing digestive problems and difficulty sleeping. With Adrienne’s advice, Ed kept a daily food diary and we consulted with her for bi-monthly meetings for a course of nutritional/educational sessions.

Implementing the changes suggested with nutritional and natural foods and greatly increasing water intake as well as incorporating Meatless Mondays; Ed is now enjoying restful nights of sleep and his digestive issues have been resolved.

Adrienne is extremely knowledgeable, personable and has a great sense of humor! Adrienne does not lay any guilt trips for indulging in otherwise not so healthy foods but instead offers nutritional alternatives and tasty recipes. She has been incredibly supportive as well!!

We have recommended Adrienne to friends who want to explore healthier eating habits.”

“Adrienne helped my teenage daughter get on track with better eating habits. She was able to deeply connect with Rachel and positively influenced her food choice while helping her feel good about it! We still are enjoying some of her recipes, such as those tasty kale chips!”

Client

“Every time I go to the store, I notice how healthier the items in the cart look. I mean, before, I wasn’t even shopping because for two or three years, I mainly ate fast food, or if I did go to the market, it was for frozen pizza, etc. About my weight loss, it is incredible how well I’ve done in such a short time, and I’m proud of that and realize that a lot of hard work remains, but I know I couldn’t have done it without your guidance. My education about nutrition under you has been worth every single penny, and to me has been life-saving. I hope you realize how important of an impact you’ve made in helping to turn my life around and I hope all your other clients appreciate your talent and knowledge as much as I do.”

“I am a 39 year old mom of 6 who was overweight, had hypothyroid issues, and on my way to being diabetic. I started working with Adrienne in July of 2012 and since then have eliminated many issues. At this point the pre-diabetes has been eliminated, and my sugar cravings are GONE! I have reduced my digestive issues to the point of no more heartburn, gas and/or bloating…I have reduced my weight by 19 pounds, and am able to workout daily now with knee troubles healing quickly. Adrienne is very attentive. She takes into consideration the person as a whole…her suggestions are true and make sense. Diet suggestions are easy to follow and work into your family’s lives. If you have the desire to change your life and become healthy, Adrienne will guide you to a healthy new YOU!”
Michelle A.
Client

“When I contacted Adrienne, I was overwhelmed and frustrated. My young daughter’s weight continued to climb, and nothing seemed to work. All the trend diets made it worse – which one was right? Working with Adrienne was great. She educated us in bite size pieces, and suggested small changes to our diet over time. Our diet is healthier now, and even better, our daughter’s weight is now in a healthy range!”

“I have felt more at peace with my body because I am doing something about it to make a change. Knowing that puts me at ease. That being said, it allows me to appreciate my Saturday evening unhealthy meal even more because I know it won’t throw me off track. I have seen a decrease in my size, which makes me very happy. Keep those new recipes coming! I really like the vegetable recipes. Getting a variety in how I have my veggies is a big challenge and I want my list of recipes for veggies to be constantly expanding. Thank you for everything, Adrienne.”

“Working with Adrienne has helped immensely. When we first started working together, I was under my ideal weight and had chronic heartburn, shooting pains in my stomach, and experienced mental fogginess and fatigue.

Over the past few months, I’ve gained 6+ lbs (in a healthy way) and feel great at my current weight. My energy became plentiful about halfway into the program and my digestive symptoms are now zero – my stomach doesn’t hurt and I’m no longer experiencing heartburn. I feel so much better and I’ve learned to look at my food and figure out how it is affecting my body, I’ve also been given the tools and resources to continue on this path to better health.”
Dirk W., Kentucky
Client

“My nutrition session with Adrienne was the most well-rounded dietetic session I have ever experienced. She is a unique dietitian in that she approaches all aspects of nutrition and wellness scientifically and holistically for better health. She has client specific sessions and programs that fit your needs and a very relaxed non-condemning approach that helps you reach your goals on step at a time. I had no confusion when the session was completed as to what direction I should be pursuing regarding my nutrition and holistic health. She did not give me a paper of a few guidelines and send me on my way but instead gave me specific goals and clear direction. She is a very good asset to the nutrition and health community. Thanks Adrienne and best of health to you as well.”

“In 2012 I was working for a company which hired Adrienne as a health coach for employees. At the time, I’d been working with a trainer who emphasized a high protein diet. I was thrilled with my strength improvements and 20 lb weight loss, but very concerned about new acne breakouts on my chin. To combat the acne, I did all I knew to do at the time, I saw an esthetician once month at about $75 dollars a visit. While these facials were relaxing and helpful, they didn’t treat the root cause of my breakouts.

Adrienne suspected a connection between the amount of type of protein I consumed and the location of my breakouts. She kindly and patiently recommended (over 3-4 visits) that I consider eliminating it from my diet and see what would happen. While I was resistant, I finally relented. To my surprise, in weeks my acne became less severe. In time it virtually disappeared…three years later, I book facials less often and for the enjoyment, not for acne control. I have them once every several months, versus every month. Had I not consulted Adrienne, I might have spent another $2250 on facials by now. I might still be fighting acne too.

For the record I’ve regained and lost the same 20 lbs. This time I’m fueling myself with great primary food, increasing my vegetables and fruit, seeds, and nuts, and scheduling exercise regularly with built in accountability. I’m hopeful that I’m finding my ideal body weight and that the weight will stay off this time.

I’ve not figured out how to quantify the other things I’ve gained from our time together, but I sure do appreciate the influence you’ve had on my life. Thank you Adrienne!”

“Over the course of working together, I have noticed the following: I’m eating healthier, not having as many cravings between meals, making positive changes with snacking, am more aware of ingredients and food purity, have really scaled back on artificial sweeteners, feel waaay less bloated, and more satisfied with my life!”
Maryann M.
Client

“In less than two months, I’ve lost 10lbs and I feel my energy has been repleted. I managed to give up Diet Coke and your suggestions for my bedtime have helped me sleep deeper. I’m also utilizing the stress management techniques we’ve talked about and feel more at peace. My food is better and our work together has helped me to see connections between certain foods and my skin. I look forward to the coming months and the changes we’ll make. Thank you!”
Katie M.
Client

“Over our past 6 months of working together, my life has seen quite a few triumphs as well as setbacks. I’m learning to accept that life will never be in a perfect state for me to make 101 changes, but that I can choose how I react to circumstances and that my small changes have already added up to me feeling like a different person! I’ve paying attention to what, and how much, I consume. I’ve noticed how water affects my skin and energy levels. I’m using more whole grains in my cooking and experiencing better digestion. I’m organizing my breakfasts and staying away from foods which I now know are irritating or causing me pain. I value our sessions so much that I’m doing another 6 months! They are a time for me to spill my feelings and work through my challenges. I always leave feeling so much lighter, refreshed, and motivated. You really light a fire in me to do the things I want to do for myself!”
