"I seriously cannot thank you enough for the things you have taught me.  I feel so much better now and I have learned so much.  The two things I am focusing on are pretty simple - but so powerful. I don't have to "do it all at once" - small steps are significant and eat more protein. Once you pointed this out to me, I actually feel full - I eat less and feel fuller.  You've been a huge help!"
