I truly believe in my heart that YOU saved my life. Prior to me contacting Deana I would lay in bed and I could feel my heartbeat in my neck and arms - I knew I needed help. I had an idea of what I wanted to achieve but knew little about nutrition and exercise. I met Deana and she knew more than anyone I had ever talked to about either.
Deana and I sat down together, as we did weekly, and Deana detailed a healthy food and exercise plan catered to my needs and liking. One of the best things about this lifestyle change was that you got to choose the food you like each week - Each week I lost weight and inches, a total of 70 pounds and 8 inches. Not only that but throughout this process, Deana educates you about foods specific to you body's chemistry. You also really learn how to eat healthy - and that is awesome!
Deana, I can't even begin to tell you how much I miss sitting with and visiting with your family. More than anything you were one of the nicest and warmest people I have ever had the opportunity of meeting and I consider you one of my best discoveries. You treated me as though I was a member of your family and I will never forget that, or YOU. I know that I will continue to see you as time goes on and I am blessed for being able to do so.
I hope you are well.
I'm not sure you remember me, but I was a client of yours around 10 years ago.
I wanted to reach out to you to simply say, thank you.
Thank you for giving me my life back through better nutrition!
When I met you, I was a long distance runner with a destroyed metabolism and hormone panel due to over training and a poor diet.
Over the course of a couple of years, through proper nutrition, you restored my metabolism and hormones to what they naturally should have been.
The number one thing that paved my way to success (which I still use to this day) is preplanning/prepping my meals.
Before, I'd leave the house ready to work an 8 to 10 hour day with zero food.
Now, I don't leave without at least three meals with me. You taught me that eating every few hours is optimal for increasing my metabolism, build muscle and burn fat.
I never would have thought that eating more was the way to go. I figured restriction was best. I was dead wrong. Thank you for teaching me the right way to eat, but more importantly, be prepared everyday for success.
Three years ago and 50 lbs of muscle later, I decided to do a men's physique show.
After four shows, I earned my IFBB pro card last year. I recently made my pro debut at the Golden State Pro in Sacramento.
I started that prep at 222 lbs. when I met you, I was 139 lbs.
It all started with reaching out to you. My health and success all started because of you.
All I can say is, thank you. Thank you for assisting in me becoming the person I am today.
Deana, Everyday I am blessed with thoughts of you and how you transformed my life. I miss you, and seeing you weekly. I have so much to say but mainly wanted to wish you a happy new year. I know you will bless many lives in 2009. My brother Jordan will be calling you. I know he needs to come and see you. He is in Utah right now but does extensive traveling from Chicago to India. My mother says Hi and she loves you. She is in Utah as well still pushing her book and lecturing. I am helping her get her website together. I am so excited about how you have changed the eating habits of most of my family. I love you dearly and wish you the best 2009...love your e-mails...you truly are a dear friend...oh I saw you on Bartrams Blog...love it! You are hot and sexy...when are you going to do a cover for women over 40? I would buy it.... Lots of love, and hope your family is well and happy...your beautiful...Clarisee
Deana put a meal plan together for me, and it worked! I lost 20 lbs in 3 months! People really noticed because the weight loss happened so fast. My doctor was so pleased and amazed that I took off the weight without diet pills and fad diets. The foods Deana recommends are tasty and realistic to integrate into my diet. Even cheating (probably more than I should) I still managed to lose the weight. Her plan maximizes your metabolism, and I felt like I was a fat-burning machine! Deana is an amazing person with endless nutritional knowledge. She is upbeat, supportive and companionate. I am in the alternative health business, but I appreciate her "real" and even western approach to nutrition. I am always skeptical of "alternative" approaches to health and have first-hand experiences in knowing that most of them do not work. If you want a positive, realistic and customized nutritional plan, see Deana. You will be amazed at the results and feel incredible!
