I feel better than ever and it is not based on what I look like in the mirror or weigh on the scale.....it is so many other things....like no more PMS, no mood swings, no more headaches with my monthly cycle, no more hating what I see in the mirror, no more negative self-talk, no more feeling deprived, I no longer have cravings that I just can't seem to fill. I am able to walk up to the top of my property and enjoy God's creation and with my dogs, I can walk to the mailbox without being out of breath, and my mental clarity is better than ever, I feel a freedom that only compares to that time in my life when drugs and alcohol had me imprisoned and God rescued me. I have been rescued by God once again and I am truly grateful. Thank you God! And Susan McCauley for all of the support you have given me over these last almost 4 months.
I am very grateful for Susan’s expertise and guidance as my nutritionist. She is very knowledgeable and reinforces that this is a healthy lifestyle and not a diet. She went over in detail my personal history and the supplements that I was already taking. Susan recommended some other supplements for me to take. She also provided me with recipes and lots of useful handouts. Her knowledge and expertise is priceless and I highly recommend her services. It will cost you nothing for a free 15-Minute phone consultation so why wouldn’t you?
I am a CrossFitter who was working hard in the gym, but I wasn't getting great results in reaching both my weight loss and strength goals. I ate mostly paleo, but had some terrible habits, my health metrics weren't great (e.g., cholesterol, triglycerides, etc.), and I lacked the knowledge about nutrition and exercise/weight loss physiology to get the most out of my diet. Susan is extremely knowledgeable and corrected several of the bad habits I had in our very first meeting! With her guidance (based on her seemingly encyclopedic knowledge of nutrition and body chemistry) and healthy tips and yummy recipes, I began eating better and feeling better. In two months, I dropped 25 pounds and almost 5% total body fat, and I felt great! Clean eating improved almost every aspect of my life, and my doctor was so happy with my test results that I thought his smile was going to pop right off his face. I was very happy working with Susan and will continue to do so in the future.
Susan helped me change the way I look at dieting and the way I look at myself. Putting a healthy lifestyle first has completely changed my world, both physically and emotionally. I feel healthy, confident, and I am attaining fitness goals!!
Working with Susan was one of the best experiences I have had working with a nutritionist. I have extensive experience in this area due to several illnesses I experienced at a young age. Susan was amazing from the very start, we drafted a meal plan together (based on foods I eat/ethnic background), she also suggested supplements and several methods to improve sleep patterns. In addition she also suggested walking routines and rest days for CrossFit training. Each client is unique and Susan is well aware of this, she does not propose the same plan to all of her clients but rather tailors it to your specific needs and goals.
One of Susan’s best qualities is her responsiveness and timeliness. I was able to communicate with her through e-mail or text. It was great, if I was at the grocery store, I could text her a picture if I had any uncertainty if a food item was acceptable/a good choice. The first couple of days, I texted pictures of my meals and workout routines to ensure I was on the right track, and she was right there by my side.
One of the most valuable lessons I learned was that it’s not all about the scale, although many of us have this belief and we have heard it many times, it’s hard to actually let go of the scale. She suggested not weighing myself but rather to focus on the way I felt, two weeks from following the protocol I was able to do my first kipping pull up, hand stand push up, increase the amount of weight I was lifting. Not only was I getting stronger but my sweet tooth was gone, I no longer had the cravings I have had for years. I was satiated with the food I was eating and did not have cravings. I have tried many other diets, and always found a way to incorporate something sweet, “sugar free” foods were my go to snacks to be able to cope with the diet I was following but not this time around. I have been following the protocol for six weeks and I have not had anything processed/sugar free foods, not even chewing gum. Feeling good about myself and being able to improve at different levels in CrossFit is now more important to me than the number on the scale. I have also lost inches and body fat but most importantly I feel great.
Susan is a very knowledgeable nutritionist you want to have by your side during the journey to a healthier happier life!
You have given me so much valuable life changing insights that I am still adapting and absorbing all the new habits and constructive mental shifts that have drastically improved my daily life. Helping me with sleep and getting my nutrition in order was a difficult hurdle for this stubborn bull headed Irishman . Its still a challenge, but I feel stronger and more hopeful I can handle temptations and unproductive behaviors. The four short weeks we spent were just the beginning of a new chapter in my life long journey towards being my truest and best self. Your weekly coaching was a good jumping off point for me and kept me accountable to the goals I set for myself.Also having the wisdom of the program behind you sets your coaching apart in an extraordinary way.
