I noticed that a good friend of mine looked great – it turns out that she had lost over 20 pounds by working with Abby. Abby was able to help me lose 13 pounds, and feel better than I have in years. I was already a runner, but could never lose any weight. What is fantastic about working with Abby is not only does she take the time to explain what foods NOT to eat, even more importantly she helped me understand what foods TO eat – ones that tasted good and filled me up, but would help me lose the weight. It has been two and a half years and I still have kept the weight off! I have recommended Abby to so many people. Her approach WORKS!
I had been engaged for over a year while finishing up graduate school and trying to plan a wedding. Between celebrating frequently and stress eating before big exams, by the time it came to my wedding dress fitting I couldn’t zip my dress! Not only did Abby help me slim down to fit into my wedding dress only a few weeks later, but she gave me the nutritional support that put me in the best shape of my life! Abby helped me lean out and lose over 15lb while looking toned and fabulous. She also balanced my diet so that my hair and skin were radiant and glowing for my big day. Abby was so supportive and always available to help me stay on track. She gave me the tools to still be able to go out, eat delicious food and live a great life while losing weight. I felt the best I’ve ever felt while working with Abby! The results from working with her were incredible! Abby is the best!
