Thanks to LeeAnn I have lost 55 pounds and have kept it off for 6 months. I have about 10 pounds more to go, although my doctor thinks I have lost enough. Most importantly, my blood sugar is lower and my A1C is now normal. I am safe!

Losing weight is like climbing a mountain — and LeeAnn was a superb guide. Her kind, patient, expert guidance helped me lose over 30 pounds (and keep it off). Not only do I feel healthier and look better, but getting better shape has made outdoor activities a lot more fun. After working with LeeAnn, I was able to successfully complete the LA Triathlon!

As a newly diagnosed type 1 diabetic, I felt powerless and in the dark with this new disease. I had a list of fears to match a list of questions. LeeAnn took the time to carefully explain and answer them all. She gave me the tools I needed to start a new life plan centered around a healthy, and sustainable diet. Since seeing LeeAnn and following the diet plan that she laid out for me, I have noticed a substantial increase in energy, more stable blood sugar readings, and an overall feeling of control over my diabetes.
