I met Leila through my sister. She was her client and had great results with her as an Acupuncturist. Leila was on the spot with diagnosis treatment plan and results. I know that she did lose weight and she does weight loss coaching but I didn’t pay any attention to it until I needed to lose weight fairly fast. I was getting married within 10 weeks and I needed to shed 25 pounds. Being an MD, I knew a lot about nutrition and diets, tried many of them with very limited results. Mainly I would lose some weight initially and regain it with time and add some more on top of it. I decided to talk to Leila and see what she would suggest. When we started talking, I noticed that she is not only recommending me what to eat, she was talking about a systematic plan that will give me results. I was curious, she explained why diet doesn’t work unless you learn to balance your hormones, explained why is hormonal balance THE key for permanent successful results, why is it necessary to change my mindset, why is it important to control stress, which supplements to take for the best results, how often to eat (suggested intermittent fasting). For me intermittent fasting was “ a problem”. I couldn’t accept the idea of avoiding food for prolonged period of time. I tried to explain to her that my sugar would go down, and she said “yes that is THE goal”. I complained that I will not have energy and that I will faint. She said that I forgot about alternative energy supply in our body and it is almost unlimited. FAT. “I would love for you to use fat as energy supply” she said. “But in order to access your fat we have to bring your sugar and your insulin down.” That is simply the requirement for success and that is when it sunk in for me. I accepted her plan and she created a unique plan just for me. I love that she does that for each client- personal approach. No cookie cutter model. Within 7 weeks I: Dropped 2 dress sizes from wedding dress XL to M Lost 26 pounds Learned to balance my diet and enjoy my favorite food (not all the time) Learn to eat guilt free Enjoy clothes shopping again (I was always buying what was available in my size, now size is not an issue the only consideration is if I like it?) Needless to say my wedding dress was gorgeous, I felt as a princess and my husband can’t keep his hands off me. Life is good, I am HAPPY.
