Working with Lauren has helped me change my long established eating habits forever. The way she explains the reasons for eating the recommended foods makes you understand the why of following the nutrition protocols she provides. Then you start feeling better, having more energy and moving better. You won't want to go back to your old way of eating!
I want you to know what a tremendous impact you have made in my life in just the past few months. I never thought I could actually enjoy food or even have a healthy relationship with food, the way I do now. Thank you, Lauren, for empowering me and guiding me towards a healthier future. You got my period to come back after four years, reduced my headaches by 70-80% and decreased by brain fog. Choosing you as my dietician was one of the best decisions I've ever made.
I have been working with Lauren for the past three months and it has been an amazing experience. It has been three months and I feel amazing, I don’t have any arthritis, I am walking 3 miles every day and have lost at least 25 lbs. I tried clothes yesterday and I could not believe how well they looked. I will keep on working with Lauren. She has been my rock!
Working with you was a dream. You helped me overcome my fears of eating certain foods related to migraine's along with gaining weight, yes, gaining weight! You were so compassionate, listened to what I had to say, always explained why and what you were having me do and were extremely knowledgable about everything I asked and what you taught me. You helped me increase my food library and taught me so so much. I cannot recommend you enough. You were instrumental in getting me well and I along with my family are so thankful for you.
Everyone I've worked with and spent thousands of dollars on other dietitians in the past, and took months to inch towards my goals and still missed most. I've worked with Lauren a small amount of time so far and her ability to quickly identify my struggles and find solutions is just amazing. Highly recommend; she gives you the tools and the motivation.
Working with Lauren, she provided great information on improving my diet as a recreational athlete. I was always good at being consistent within the weight room, but not as much as in the kitchen. She was able to work with me within my busy school and work schedule to devise a plan that was realistic for my lifestyle and also helped me achieve my goals. Since working with Lauren, I've seen major improvements with my numbers on each of my primary lifts and have also progressively decreased body fat percentage each week since when working with her. Thank you Lauren!
I love my plan and the results I have experienced. You are the only one who has helped me be successful in cutting body fat while increasing my strength. You are also so prompt with responses to my questions and concerns. I cannot thank you enough for helping me better myself.
I’m very excited with how working with Lauren has changed my entire life. This is the best my body has looked EVER!!!!!! And I feel so much better all around. I am beyond thrilled with every bit of my progress. Lauren has equipped me with information that I can use as a lifelong process. I haven't felt this great about my weight ever and myself.
Before working with Lauren, I was constantly feeling fatigued- struggling to get through a day of work. My blood work showed high cholesterol and several vitamin/hormone deficiencies. Lauren examined by labs and recommended a diet and vitamin regimen to help. After 3 months, my labs are now all within normal range and I feel better than ever. It's been 5 months and I am still following my nutrition plan and focusing on the principles she taught me while working with her. Thank you!!
Many thanks to Lauren!! I have been up and down when it came to my nutrition and everything I tried always failed me after a month but finding Lauren was a blessing. From the first phone call and email follow up based on our conversation, until now she has helped me celebrate the small and big wins and truly showed concern for my well being. Not only have I been able to lose over 20 lbs. and inches but my endurance and strength has gone up three fold during my two a day training sessions. I am much more mentally alert and my quality of life has been raised through the roof!! In 6.5 months I have slimmed down to 10% body fat, 40 in waist to a 32 in waist and I am finally seeing true results from my competitive training!!
I came to Lauren almost 5 months ago looking for support with recovering from Hypothalamic Amenorrhea and improving my hormones. Rather than prescribing a standard nutrition plan, Lauren suggested a DUTCH test so we could see what was going on for my body and how we could support my body and my goals. When we got the results back, Lauren reviewed them with me in a way I could understand and she explained what foods and supplements would help heal my body. For the first time in a long time, I started eating in a way that supported my health and made me feel good - not just to hit numbers or macros. My sleep, my energy levels, and my mood have all increased drastically since I started working with Lauren and I know I am well on my well to my healthiest self! I can’t thank Lauren enough for all her support in answering my questions, explaining things to me, and reassuring me during times I struggled. I can’t recommend her enough! After 5 months, Alison recovered her menstrual cycle naturally through food, lifestyle and personalized supplements.
Before I started this program, I lacked any kind of consistency...that's where Coach Lauren really helped! I appreciate that she really has an understanding of hormonal balance and gave us recipes and education that would be optimal for women's health. The recipes were delicious and easy enough for even a beginner cook to follow. I have a different point of view when it comes to health and fitness and I really owe it to the QCC program.
I never thought I could lose weight eating as much as I am within this program! I am learning how to cook and meal prep and actually feel like I am fueling my body. I no longer have to worry if I am eating the right things, my nutrition program takes care of that for me.
Jon: My doctor said that I am losing weight faster and safer than he has ever seen. My blood pressure is down and I'm off meds. I've lost 42 lbs. in 4 months of working with you!
Wife (Bri): The recipes are great .... It's actually good! Nothing low-carb, nothing low-fat! And they're easy to make, I've gotten into a system and it only takes me about 2 hours on Sunday to prepare his meals for the week!! Being 6 months pregnant, it's been so easy! I'm so proud of all the progress he's made and can't wait to see him compete at his next meet in October!
I feel it's important to share my experience with others, like that I was trying to drop the weight while nursing. Unfortunately, all that clean eating and additional exercise did was decrease my milk supply. Before then, I lived and breathed the idea that the weight would come off by doing those things & by nursing as well.. I am so thankful I followed the plan you gave me. It was the first time after returning to workouts that I actually had energy in the gym and didn't have to fear not being able to nurse because I wanted to push myself in workouts. I haven't done any of this perfect, but I didn't stop and that made a huge difference.
Before working with Lauren, I had been pregnant or breastfeeding babies for five years straight and had not been making my health a priority. My diet was crazy after having the mindset that I could eat whatever I wanted while breastfeeding. Lauren really helped me understand how often I should be eating and what those meals should be made up of. After only a week of working with her, I felt like a new person with lots of energy. The overall health benefits have been amazing and I’m so thankful for the lifelong skills she has given me as well as all the fancy resources she shared with me. The bonus is that she is such a great person to work with and the overall process was enjoyable and an investment I would make over again.
I was a marine for 4 years and am stronger and faster than I was then. I know that it is due to my current diet working with you. I feel better than ever before and it has shown in my workouts.
I contacted Lauren to feel healthier, stronger, and feel the best I possibly could. That's exactly what happened. I realized I had looked at food wrong for quite some time. I know have a much better understanding of what I am putting in my body and know what I need to eat on a regular basis to fuel my body for my clinicals all day, graduate school classes at night, and workouts that are squeezed in between the two. Lauren was such a wonderful mentor throughout the whole process and someone I felt like in could be honest with and confide in. She opened my eyes to the healthy way to view eating and taught me just how to give my body what it needs to perform its very best!
I want to thank you for helping me out with my nutrition. I'm down 8 lbs. and feel lighter, stronger, and faster because of your help. I feel better and look better (according to my fiance and coworkers). It wasn't difficult to follow but working with my work schedule at the plant made it a challenge. Again, thank you!
For me, I really don't care what others think of the way I look, but I do care about my performance as a fireman. I now feel much more fueled for my duties. Thank you for all that you have done for me. Thanks to the 8 week Nutrition Challenge and the knowledge of Lauren, I finally listened and am now performing at a much higher level. THANK YOU!
I started my fitness journey with a great understanding of how to workout or train and that has never been the problem for me. I always had decent results but never could seem to understand why I kept plateauing…until I started working on my nutrition with Lauren. It is single handily the best choice and change I made in my training. Through Lauren's help, I finally started to understand the importance of my nutrition and how it could take my training to the next level. With her help I was able to hit all of my nutrition goals which in turn helped me become a better athlete. In one year working with Lauren, I gained 25 pounds, increased all my strength numbers, and am the leanest I've ever been. I can honestly say that this is the best shape I've been, in my entire life.
When Lauren first helped me with my diet and nutrition, I weighed about 155 pounds but was at 32% body fat and had the metabolic age of a 37 year old (at age 28). Lauren taught me about eating based on my goals and performance levels. I dropped 9% body fat and gained 14 pounds of muscle in just a few months. One year later, I still follow what I learned and I'm down to 19% body fat.
