“Working with Mindy has been life-changing. She helped me lower my A1C number from 6.0 to 5.5 through diet and exercise. I also finally lost weight – 56lbs in 13 months! I feel in control of my health and body for the first time in my life!”
“In just a few sessions with Melinda, I learned what changes I needed to make in order to achieve my goal and feel better. Whatever your concern is… Melinda’s explanations and suggestions will help you to be successful.”
Melinda has simply taught me what to eat. Before I had an appointment, I was always unsure of what to eat and how to fuel my body before swim practice and competitions. Now I am more informed on not only what is healthy for me to eat, but how to fuel my body for competition. Rarely now am I questioning what foods I should be having to perform at my best during competition. Ever since I started working with Melinda, I feel more powerful in my swimming races, and I also feel that I can help guide other people on my team in the right direction if they are struggling in the same matters I did. I am happy to say that I no longer feel sluggish or fatigued during my workouts and I can depend on myself in making healthy choices when meal time comes. Working with Melinda gave me this confidence, and I am grateful of all the knowledge she has bestowed upon me.
