My clients are my biggest source of inspiration. I hope this gorgeous young gal’s story inspires you.
Stephanie is a 26 year old veterinary technician. Her warm smile and bubbly personality never fails to light up the room. She works full time, has several fur babies as well as a boyfriend and family that she’s devoted to.
Stephanie came to me for help with bloating, cramping and fatigue. She also struggled with cravings and continued weight gain.
She noticed that certain foods, particularly cow dairy, would trigger painful cramping and affect her bowels.
We decided to get her a Metabolic Balance plan.
Her personalized meal plan was put together based 30 of her blood values, her measurements as well as her health history.
11 days into her plan, she was down 9 lbs. Her bloating and cramping were significantly reduced although she was still feeling somewhat tired. She struggled with occasional headaches during the first (strict) part of her plan.
8 weeks into her plan, she was down 17 lbs. Her bloating and cramping were gone and she was awakening feeling more rested (when her fur babies behaved and let her sleep)
5 months after starting her plan she was down a total of 22 lbs and was within about 3 lbs of her target weight.
During that time, she integrated all kinds of new foods and habits and most importantly, learned how to make her new healthy food delicious.
She no longer experiences any pain after eating, even when she has cow dairy.
Cravings are no longer a thing and she’s continuing to prioritize sleep.
Stephanie’s journey is a perfect example of the case for real food. So many foods are demonized and removed from diets when often, the problem isn’t the whole food at all but rather the sufferer’s digestion and gut.
In Stephanie’s case; cleaning up the diet, supporting the gut and digestion along with the science behind Metabolic Balance, resulted in her tolerating ALL foods.
It was such a pleasure working with Stephanie. She is self-responsible and she was enthusiastic and open to all of the changes.
Currently, she’s working at consciously maintaining her new healthy weight and deepening the important connections and red flag symptoms that her body gives her.
Here are a few words from her:
Since I was a young teen I was ALWAYS experiencing cramping and bloating after every meal.
I consulted my family doctor and their response was always ‘’you need to cut this out of your diet’’ or ‘’maybe you are lactose intolerant, try this supplement and see’’.
As a teen that was hard, especially since I am someone who LOVES to eat, especially cheese, and I thought that it was honestly not worth it for me because I would NEVER want to eliminate dairy from my diet.
So at this point I was just dealing with the pain because there was no way I was going to cut out the foods that I love.
It was only recently, after hearing about Kim and Metabolic Balance from a friend, that I finally decided that I needed to do this, that I was done dealing with this discomfort and I wanted to find the root of the problem.
Since my first appointment with Kim I could tell how caring and dedicated she is to nutrition and showing everyone that ‘’food is not the problem’’.
We got started right away and I was amazed to see how my blood could tell me what foods are best for me and that dairy was something I COULD eat.
The first two weeks were rough but Kim was there to guide me through every step of the journey and my boyfriend, family and friends were there to help and support me as well.
Once I was able to experiment with more foods I was amazed about how great I was feeling, and how I was able to eat and not suffer any consequences later on.
Throughout this journey Kim helped me understand that good food is never the problem and how important it is to feed your gut!
Ever since I have been putting my gut first and always providing it with some gut friendly foods.
I am extremely happy that I finally decided to start this journey and I can’t imagine doing it with anyone else but Kim. She is a real GUT saver 🙂
I want to congratulate Stephanie on achieving her goals and for allowing me to share her story.
Stephanie has gained tools that will support her for a lifetime and most importantly the conviction that eating should not hurt.
