OUR MEDICAL NUTRITION THERAPY PROGRAMS WORK FOR REAL PEOPLE
You’ve made a real, radical difference in my life. If you remember, through my hysterectomy, ovaries removal, highest dosage of estrogens, severe allergic reactions to unknown agents followed by highest and longest dosages of cortisone related prescriptions … slowly my body had gone from my lifetime size 8 to size 16 (while I was not over-eating) causing my self esteem to deteriorate and my physical body to start accusing serious health problems. It was then that my new primary physician, Dr. Vounas, (Internal Medical Center, Auburn) gave me the best advise I could hope for: to come to you.
My husband accompanied me to my first appointment with you and we were immediately embraced by your warmth, kindness, and know-how: you carefully listened to both of us, reviewed all my medical records, asked us incredibly wise specific questions on everything related both to our life styles and family habits while explaining scientifically and psychologically what every step meant.
Talking to you was fun, energetic, positive and doable: your confidence became ours and in a few months, with your constant reference and advice, I was able to shed more than seventy pounds and regain my former size eight which I am easily maintaining today, three years later!
I am seventy years old and, thanks to your precious expertise, feeling younger than ever! One year ago I had to go through a major surgery and you were there with me to monitor my diet before the procedure and on my way to recovery, always lovingly and in the most positive and effective way. I always recommend you to everybody who is struggling in good faith with weight/health related problems. Thank you Kelly again and again from the bottom of my heart!
OUR MEDICAL NUTRITION THERAPY PROGRAMS FEATURE
Real for for real people, easy-to-follow programs, lasting change.
Medical nutrition counseling
Coordinating with physician/office staff to improve care and outcomes
Evidenced-based nutrition education
The information on calories, label reading, appropriate sleep and balance in nutrition have been invaluable for me, to have valid information that is based on real life is important. I felt confident after putting the information into practice on a weekly or daily basis. I learned that protein and vegetables are the fundamentals of improved nutrition, energy and mood. I learned 1200-1500 calories are a recipe for a healthy target of daily nutrition. With this information, I was able to lose 8 pounds in 3 months. That also gave me confidence in what I learned. There is no way for me to thank you enough for my improved mood, weight, energy, and knowledge.

I personally enjoyed the lesson on the breakdown of different fats. Our kiddos really seemed to enjoy the presentations + retained a lot of the information presented.
