Jane has been instrumental this year in helping my adult autistic daughter achieve a healthy weight after several failed attempts to do so over the past five years. Working closely with my daughter's caregivers both at her home and at her workplace, Jane provided clear guidelines for meal prep, overall nutritional parameters and specific product recommendations. She also offered a wealth of delicious and easy to prepare recipes for meals and snacks that are tailored to my daughter's food preferences so that everyone in her life could "play the game" of feeding her successfully and enthusiastically. My daughter has lost 25 pounds over 7 months, without evident deprivation and while enjoying a wide variety of meals, snacks and treats. She has learned to appreciate and accept new foods and healthy variations of her old favorites. Jane always responded immediately and fully to multiple requests for further info, including detailed troubleshooting when weight loss stalled - with the very effective advice to cut exercise time but vary the intensity.
"After being diagnosed with ulcerative colitis, I was so confused trying to navigate through which foods would be good (or bad) for the condition and wanted to do my best to make choices that would help promote better health all around. I am so thankful I found Jane! She has taught me so much in a short time and her guidance has made the changes seem doable, exciting and tasty :) She allowed me the opportunity to pick her brain with lots of questions and provided wonderful insight and knowledge. Over a short period of time, I have physically felt improvements and feel much more confident in making food choices. My mind and body thank her!"
“I’m so very thrilled with what I learned during our first meeting – a game changer! I’m never hungry these days, and sugar doesn’t seem to be an issue. I’m addicted to the smoothies. It’s become a game to see how many veggies I can add to the fruit!"
“We had a wonderful and productive meeting to discuss how to help my husband get through chemo and radiation without too large a loss of weight. He has tolerated (his treatments) very well and lost only between 4 and 5 pounds, which the doctor thought was very good.”
“Since working with Jane, I have felt like a brand-new person. I was diagnosed with Crohn's disease a year ago, and until meeting with Jane, would never have known how much an impact food could have on my condition. Within a week (of meeting with Jane), I had more energy, was sleeping so much better, and my skin was feeling and looking healthier. Not to mention my pain that had been triggered on almost a daily basis was gone. I also lost 12 pounds in a month! I am so happy to have made this change, and I know it will be a permanent lifestyle adjustment!”
“No one has ever given me this direction before. Thank you, Jane, for your wonderful and caring support. You made such a difference in my thinking (and outlook) yesterday. I have taken to heart what you told me (especially the magnesium and warm lemon water). I’ve already looked over and printed your attachments. Wow … fabulous. Thank you so much. My husband, Harry, and I will definitely benefit from listening to and using as many of these ideas as possible. Again, thank you."
“Jane – even more good news. My hair and nails have begun to grow. My energy level is really good. It used to be that when I went shopping, I was good for an hour, but now I can go two hours. Also, my focus on projects and stamina are better than before. I am feeling really great–in fact, better than before I got sick, and I thought I was fine then. Who knew?”
“My weight is down 20 pounds since I first met with Jane. Even better, my recent blood work was terrific. My cholesterol dropped and my long-term blood sugar shifted from pre-diabetes, where it has been for the last several years, to normal. I am still enjoying new foods and am all vegan several days a week. Even the stress of my move hasn’t driven me to carb out!"
“Jane doesn’t dictate what you should do – she makes you an active participant in making positive changes in your life. She is extremely pleasant and knowledgeable and is definitely 'on my side.' She taught me new techniques and reinforced what I already knew about eating and overeating. She advocates gradual changes – and is not heavy-handed in her approach."
"Jane is my go-to Registered Dietitian. I have worked with her for the last 20 years with my fitness and wellness business. As a leading nutrition expert and registered dietitian, she inspires her clients to make better lifestyle choices. Her down-to-earth, realistic and personable counseling style puts clients at ease. She is an expert with special diets, healthy weight management, eating disorders, healthy cooking and meal planning, and so much more.”
“I have seen many medical specialists, nutritionists and health care professionals throughout the last 20 years for my chronic health problems. None of them have been able to help me or give me the results that I have achieved by working with Jane. For the first time in many years I am feeling physically better and have a more positive outlook. My doctors are surprised at the improvements in my health. I highly recommend her to anyone with any nutritional or health problem.”
“When my gastroenterologist recommended that I see a nutritionist for the formula-related digestive issues I was having, Jane was my first thought. She took a thorough history and really listened to my concerns. She found a formula for me that was less processed than others and then worked with me to 'tweak' my intake to be optimal, allowing me to gain the weight I needed, and maintain it successfully for almost a year now."
“I cannot thank you enough for your guidance since last spring! Just got new blood work back on Friday, and my HgA1C is down from 5.9 to 5.4, within normal range! Besides lowering that all important number, my total cholesterol dropped 13 points, and that’s with all the eggs and other healthy fats you encouraged me to eat! I have also dropped about 5 pounds. I’m assuming that adding the protein sources and cutting back carbs has led to that. Most days I now start with the mocha tahini shake, and it sustains me through all my intense morning exercise. THANK YOU!”
