Read what clients and colleagues are saying about Chrissy!

Kim Essendrup, Client“My total cholesterol is down to 135 (a loss of almost 100 points), LDL down to 70 (a loss of 121 points). My body fat has come down from almost 27% to less than 10.5%. I’ve lost 35.5 pounds of fat and gained 16.5 pounds of lean body mass. This past spring I completed Ironman Arizona in less than 15-1/2 hours.

For anyone else trying to make a change in their life through diet, I have to recommend that you go see Chrissy. Her knowledge and positive support have been a critical factor in my personal success, as I’m sure they will be in yours.”  -Kim Essendrup, client and now Ironman

“When I first met you, I knew I was safe. Call it kizmet, call it fate, call it time for my recovery. I call it the universe being on time. Spot on. You said from the beginning, we make a good team. I truly believe that I will know you in 30 years. I think you do realize how important your role in my recovery was/is. Chrissy when I lied through my teeth for the 5 months you tried like heck to get me into the group home, you STILL said you trusted me. That only made me go harder (I never use the word “try.” My dad always said that “trying” was just “quitting with honor.” You either do it or you don’t.) I’m being someone who is truly grateful for your hard work. I know I was difficult sometimes, but time was good to me, and my insurance, I am grateful they kept me on so long, because you, my illustrious dietitian, are a wealth of information/ knowledge (which is power) and an absolute genius. YOU made me want recovery. I wanted what YOU have. And now, I have what others want and I want to shout it from the rooftops.” ©KMS 🙂 “Hope is love, so love it back.”

“I have learned that 80% of any workout plan is the diet. Chrissy has developed a nutritional plan specifically developed for my body type. The most important times towards gaining muscle mass are when I am outside of the gym, the rest and recovery stage. During these days off from resistance training I have learned to fuel my body with the proper foods throughout the day to repair the muscle and gain that mass I am ultimately working towards. Chrissy’s knowledge and assistance has made the path towards reaching my goals more productive and easier.” – Gregory Hunt, client

“I have had the privilege to work with Chrissy as a teammate during the Weight Loss Challenge contest on Channel 3TV. Her knowledge with wellness allowed the team toreach levels of success in their new lifestyles, never seen before. I routinely invite Chrissy out to Phoenix Adventure Boot Camp to speak on the often confusing subject of nutrition, as I feel the professionalism and knowledge she has, is an asset to my program.” -Tammy Kaatz Phoenix Adventure Boot Camp, Inc.

“When my daughter’s soccer coach referred her to a nutritionist, I had no idea what to expect. Chrissy was able to talk with my daughter about her diet and make simple changes that would boost her energy and shed a few unwanted pounds. Her no nonsense approach to what and when to eat sure did help my daughter sort though her food choices and clear up misconceptions of “healthy foods.” -Robin

“I just wanted to thank you for your time & knowledge. My meetings with you have helped transform my eating habits. I am now eating well as a natural feeling routine. I no longer need to write every meal down, instead I am able to measure & balance my meals almost effortlessly & listen to my body.

I feel wonderful because my focus is on much more joyful aspects of my life as I no longer feel shame or loathing in regards to food. My sense of balance & peace is rewarding enough, but I have also received several compliments from others noticing a difference in my appearance. My clothes are fitting better, and although I don’t get on the scale more than twice a month, the number is dropping.

I can’t thank you enough for helping transform my life. I now feel a sustainable sense of freedom from a once paralyzing eating disorder / body obsession. What you taught me will stay with me for a lifetime.” –Name Withheld

“Chrissy provides a common sense approach to nutrition, eating habits, and portion control. Her recommendations were easy to understand and more importantly, they were also easy to follow.” -Beky

“I have been a competitive athlete my entire life hiding a secret, one that almost took my life. I have battled many eating disorders from the young age of 9. I have been in and out of treatment facilities for the last 17 years. With the expertise and compassion of Chrissy, I feel like a new person. Before I worked with Chrissy, I was an athlete with an eating disorder and am now an athlete that is strong- mentally, physically, and emotionally.” -Name withheld

“My personal nutritional challenge was to maintain my commitment as a vegetarian while eating properly to perform maximally as a competitive soccer player. She explained everything in terms that I understood and gave me easy-to-follow dietary guidelines, not a “diet.” Her focus is always on her patients’ overall health. Most importantly, Chrissy followed up with me and always was available if I had questions.” -Sarah Gieszl, Age 17, Sereno ‘89 Golden Eagles and U-18 Select, Senior, Xavier College Preparatory School, Phoenix, AZ.
