Testimonials

“Though there are daily challenges, it’s not about rules or willpower or depriving myself of the food I like to eat. It’s about building a different relationship with food and with myself.”

“I have really appreciated the group classes. Having people to support you and give you great feedback and ideas has been a tremendous help. I also love [our instructor].
