Note from Joy
I am very grateful to Kim for being so open and allowing me to share her story! She did the Eat Well package with me and followed the meal plan I created for her. But it's important that you know she truly embraced change from a holistic perspective, beyond just the foods she was eating. She is truly a success as you will see from the list of health benefits she experienced including elimination of acne, improved energy and no more asthma-like symptoms to name a few. I'm thrilled to be able to share her story with you in hopes that it inspires you to take control of your health! Be sure to check out the opportunity to win an "eat well" session with me -- scroll all the way down.
1. What were your main health goals?
My main health goal was to eat a more balanced vegetarian diet. I remember emailing you about symptoms I had been experiencing for what seemed like forever (i.e. shortness of breath, runny nose, increased breakouts, moodiness) and you said that it sounded like I had some food allergies so I was hoping that you could help me with these symptoms as well.
2. What were the top 3-4 changes you made to your diet?
I cut out refined wheat, dairy, refined sugar, and soy. I made sure to drink Lemon & water on an empty stomach every morning. I also bought organic foods and eating less packaged food and takeout.
3. Were there any lifestyle changes you made?
I went off birth control, began using clean products to clean my house, and joy approved organic, clean products on my skin and body. I also started taking the vitamins you recommended.
4. What are the effects of those changes?
Im just going to list the effects of the changes because there are so many:
Anything else youd like to share?
Before I met with you, I wasnt convinced that cutting out certain foods would make all of my issues go away. I thought that if medicine couldnt help me, nothing could but I had to try. I now admit I was completely wrong. Not only does food affect how you feel, it affects your every day. There was a day where I cheated and ate a non-joyous meal and after eating it, I instantly felt awful! My husband also feels like he has more energy, and eating better has definitely helped him out too.
I love the food plan that you created for me - even though you eliminated the bad foods that I liked eating, you found better versions of them for me.
If I were to give any of your future clients any sort of advice, it would be to just follow your advice. When I try to thank you for changing my life and my husbands life for the better, you never take the credit so I dont think you should take all of the blame if it doesnt work. The reason why I feel the way I do and the reason why its worked for me is because I took every suggestion you made for me, and I did it. Even though you will tell me that it was all me, I do sincerely thank you for everything that youve done!
