I liked the group process because I was able to learn from other people in the group, but it was still very individualized.
Before starting the group program, I knew very little about healthy nutrition. I was brand new. I had painful joints, IBS symptoms for almost my entire life and thought this might be something I could try to help with some of my ailments.
I liked the group process because I was able to learn from other people in the group, but it was still very individualized. It pertained specifically to my individual needs. I thought certain foods had caused me problems for many years.
I found out in a matter of weeks that what I thought was completely incorrect. This was the most astounding thing that came out of the program for me. It’s very hard to change certain behaviors, but when I go to the grocery store, I now buy what I’m supposed to eat.
It really has changed my whole outlook on everything I put into my body. I now recognize that it’s not “just me” it’s what I eat. If I eat the correct foods I don’t feel bad…at all!
I’m a nurse practitioner and I had a lack of knowledge where nutrition is concerned. I appreciated the fact that Colleen was knowledgeable and helpful. She was easy to talk to, very accommodating, interested and enthusiastic about what she was doing for me.
