Comments from the most recent 6-week Nourishing Traditional Diets course ending June 23rd, 2014:
“I found this nutrition class very informative! I looked forward to coming each week! Diane…you did a super job! This was a very educational course on healthy eating!” – Kathy L.
“This course was mind blowing! You need to be concerned with all the false information the food industry is teaching! This course gave me real true knowledge! We need to get back to eating as nature intended! The food choices were excellent…very satisfying!” – Barb E.
“Diane…I absolutely learned so much from your Nutrition Course! It is shocking to find that much of what I thought I was eating for my health, was more than likely harming me over many years of consuming products that were so detrimental to my health. I am trying to incorporate what you have taught into my daily life. I have wanted to take a nutrition course for a long time and when you gave me your business card I knew it was my opportunity to do something about it. I thank you for your help and will continue to work on changing the type of food I put in my body. I have already made many different choices in what I am eating, such as using ONLY butter, and avoiding processed foods as much as possible. I highly recommend your course to others who want to learn to eat right to be healthy.” – Sue O.
Comments from the most recent 6-week Nourishing Traditional Diets course ending November 25, 2013:
“An absolute must! Above and beyond insightful! We are all so misinformed! I would love my friends and family to partake! – Linda S
“Worthwhile! Enjoyable! Eye opening! Reverses a lot of nutrition myths! I like the food choices that were recommended especially the lacto-fermented foods. It is also good to have permission to eat fats.” – Peter B
“I learned so much more about nutrition and ways to incorporate it into my life! Very informative! – Patti H
“I have been completely inspired to improve my lifestyle. Going into the class I never imagined I would have learned so much about food and life styles. The information presented was profound, beyond its time, yet made complete sense when broken down. The text/cook book is an amazing resource. I feel great eating a more balanced diet, with the additions of Cod Liver Oil, a few vitamins and tons of fat! My food has never tasted so good. I wish I had known about the Weston A. Price way of life years ago. I have shared many of the 11 points with my family, hoping to encourage them to live a bit healthier as well. Diane Christopher is passionate, supportive and absolutely brilliant. It was an epic experience that I would suggest to anyone who wants to live a clean, healthy and happy life! – Crystal M
“This class was much more in-depth than other classes I have taken in the past. Most of the food choices are great! I’m still excited about using butter! Diane helped me find my way back to REAL food! I feel like I have a better chance of not getting my cancer back again!– Suzette E
“I took Diane’s class on “Nourishing Traditional Diets”, which was two and a half years ago,and since then I have been eating the right way. I have lost almost 50 pounds, and I feel so much better than I used to. I feel 15-20 years younger, too. I used to have to take Advil every single morning just to be able to move. I was just so full of inflammation it was crazy. It took some time, but believe me, this IS the best thing I have ever done in my life, and I thank Diane for opening my eyes to this! I will NEVER go back to how I used to eat and live. This is my permanent way of life. It feels wonderful to feel healthy!” – Jo P
“I’ve been feeling really good lately..I’ve lost about 25 pounds since I’ve seen you last and I feel amazing. I feel like my thyroid is finally under control. I’ve pretty much cut out all carbs. I mostly eat vegetables and protein (and we use the Kerrygold butter). I usually have a piece of Ezekiel bread once or twice a week which is enough for me. Thanks so much for changing my lifestyle..it has made me enjoy life so much more.” Erica S
“Diane, you cracked the code———I really felt normal all day and last week noticed more energy. Hope it continues, haven’t felt this good in ages!!!!!!!” – Barb E.
“Hi Diane! Our family is “all in” on this paradigm shift in thinking about nutrition. It was hard to wrap my head around the fats are good mentality, but have to say I do feel better! Thanks for all of your help! I really appreciate all that you’ve done for my health and that of my family!” – Doreen S.
“I feel good. I can just see it in my face that I feel better…I used to be so puffy and my eyes were always swollen. Now I look healthy, it’s a great feeling. So thank you :)” – Erica S
“I was scared because I knew something was happening to me and my health. I wasn’t able to walk easily, get up from a chair or talk normal. My digestive system was also messed up. I had no energy at all and was constantly falling asleep. After working with Diane, I am walking better and talking better. I can even sing now. My energy is better too. I used to have to pull my car over after driving 20 minutes and sleep for 10 minutes. Not any more! I can now read for 3 hours continuously without falling asleep! My dry skin is better and my digestive symptoms have improved.” – Nancy K
“I am 58 years old and I have lost 50 pounds. My weight loss journey began a year ago. I was lucky enough to come into contact with Diane Christopher who was teaching a nutrition class. We talked on the phone and she was so passionate about nutrition. She invited me to attend the first 3 hour session to see if this was the kind of class I was looking for. In fact, it was much more than I was looking for. I did sign up for class. This was the first time in my life that I could understand and follow healthy eating. Before the class I used to be overwhelmed with all the information available about weight loss and eating healthy. Diane’s class taught me how to eat healthy and feel very satisfied. Diane’s class taught me about vitamins, mineral, enzymes, fats, carbohydrates, protein and much, much more. One of the things that I learned from Diane is how bad wheat (breads,pasta, etc.) is for you. I decided to give up wheat and focus on eating whole nutritious foods. I gave up processed foods and focused on eating as healthy as possible. One of the things I learned is how addicted I am to refined carbs (pasta, cereal with sugar, bread, muffins, cake, cookies and so on). I went through a withdrawal period of about a week and began my weight loss journey. I learned that I cannot eat refined carbs (including white bread) because they are so addictive to me. I also learned that in order to be true to myself, I needed to attend a weekly weight loss program to keep me on track. I joined TOPS (taking off pounds sensibly). I did not think this would help me but boy was I surprised. It helped to go to weekly meetings which always held me accountable. I was also inspired by the other women in the group especially the women that were older than me. I could not use the excuse that it was to hard to lose weight because I was old. I also started an exercise program and started swimming three times a week. I have started yoga and hope to start strength conditioning. I still continue on my weight loss journey and hope to lose more weight. I take one day at a time. I am eternally grateful to Diane for her passion and knowledge of nutrition. She is the only person I have met in the nutrition/weight loss industry that really seems to care. She wants to share her knowledge for nutrition and eating healthy. By eating healthy I was able to lose my weight. Thank you Diane.” – Nancy W
“I constantly felt bloated and lacked energy. Also, my breasts would be tender a week before menstruating and my cramps would be unbearable. I never feel bloated and I feel great now! No more breast tenderness or cramps either! – Jessica S
“This past April I was scheduled to have my stent cleaned out because a dopler sonogram one month earlier showed plaque buildup in my carotid artery. I began an aggressive nutritional program which included vitamins and dietary improvements. On April 8th, at Buffalo General Hospital, during the procedure to clean my stent, the doctor’s decided to abate the procedure. They determined the plaque buildup was not showing the level of concern that they had expected. I attribute this unexpected blessing to prayer, diet, supplements and taking generally better care of myself.” – Nancy K.
“Diane Christopher has been working with me on my health, nutrition and fitness for about 3 years. She has made a significant impact in my life physically, mentally and emotionally. Without her knowledge and expertise I would not be where I am today. I used to be very unhappy about myself and I had a lot of problems with my digestive system. I was never extremely overweight, but I had plenty of room for improvement. I thought I was eating smart, but Diane pointed out that some of the foods I thought were good choices weren’t very healthy at all. Just because a package says “fat free” does not mean it’s good for you! I had to discover my nutritional roots all over again.
As of today, I have lost a total of 25lbs and decreased my body fat percentage by 5%. Her experience as a Nutritional Therapist has helped me understand my body better. Now I know what foods and vitamins my body lacks and how to make smart choices to reach optimal health. None of this would’ve been possible without Diane’s knowledge about healthy foods and her motivation to push me in the right direction.
Diane’s approach to nutrition will leave you questioning everything that all of today’s doctors and society have taught you. It is quite possibly one of the most unique approaches to eating healthy that I have ever learned, but it works! I look better and feel better about myself and I have Diane to thank for that!” – Amy T
“I don’t struggle with weight because I watch what I eat and exercise regularly, but I do struggle with eating a healthy and well balanced diet. I thought that I was eating healthy (ie: protein shakes, skim milk, V8 juice, whole wheat bread, etc.), but with Diane’s help through E-Counseling, I learned that a lot of the food I was eating, was actually very unhealthy and over processed, which stripped foods of their vital nutrients. She provided me with LOTS of good advice, healthy options and phenomenal recipes that my whole family can enjoy!! They were very easy to make and tasted great! And she was there EVERY step of the way! No matter how many questions I had and how hard I struggled, she was there with encouraging words that could motivate anyone! I would HIGHLY recommend E-Counseling with Diane for anyone who wants to learn more about healthy eating, or politically correct eating, as she would call it. Even if you think you are already eating healthy, this is a big eye opener! It was so wonderful, I plan on starting another session with Diane in a few weeks. Thanks again Diane!” – Wendy S.
“Because of taking Diane’s 6-week nutrition class, I am now in complete control of my eating habits. I never feel deprived, and never feel hungry. Because of her class, I lost over 50 pounds! And I feel as if I’m always eating! She’s ALWAYS there to answer my questions, just an e-mail or phone call away. Last week I had a casual friend from the gym walk up to me and tell me she didn’t recognize me because of the drastic weight loss. She also said that my skin has cleared up immensely, which I directly relate to my new clean eating habits. I now feel in control of my body, and my life.” – Jessica J.
“I’m doing great!! I’ve had no stomach problems for about 6 weeks now. I think some of the changes in diet have really helped me. Healthier choices and being very disciplined about the foods I’ve been eating seem to have made a difference. Currently I am not taking anything but thyroid medication. I’m just happy that I’ve been feeling so much better. I enjoyed meeting you and thank you for all the information you have given me.” – Debbie S.
“My husband and I were trying to get pregnant for over a year. After Quantum Reflex Analysis testing with Diane, she discovered that I was low on progesterone and suggested that I use progesterone cream. After using it for only 1 month I got pregnant! I am now 12 wks along and am doing great. I am so happy I went to her and will not hesitate to go back in the future.” – Carolyn J.
“Hi Diane….I am feeling good…I realize it takes time but I managed to do some laundry and a bunch of stuff I have not been able to do…today seems a little better…so grateful….Thanks. Still doing good…. I am so excited… Thanks” – Sharon G
“The Nourishing Traditional Diets nutrition course will change everything you thought you understood about nutrition. The recipes given throughout the course were extremely helpful…helped me to see that healthy traditional food is full of variety, nutrients and also delicious. I always looked forward to the class!” – Sue E
“I found the Nourishing Traditional Diets nutrition course enlightening, interesting and well worth the time and money. I looked forward to every class. I found the principles of Weston A Price nutrition fairly easy to incorporate into my daily diet…just takes advance planning. I am feeling better, have lost weight and am looking forward to planting my organic garden in the spring!” – Judy C
“The NTD course that I took with Diane Christopher was informative and helpful with improvements with my health and weight. I struggled with an excess of 10lbs for quite some time which exercise and my current diet would not take off. The NTD course gave me the tools I needed to be successful with eliminating sugar cravings and finally taking off my excess 10lbs. I no longer experience any sugar cravings, have totally eliminated sugar from my diet and feel and look so much better! Diane taught me how to replace refined foods with healthy, nutrient dense foods that nourish my body. These nourishing foods along with various supplements to enhance my digestion, have healed my long standing digestive problems. I highly recommend this course to anyone who is serious about getting their health in order.” Wendy F.
“First, I wanted to thank you for approaching my parents and thus introducing this much healthier lifestyle to all of us. I thank the Lord for your boldness and passion. Now secondly, I would like to share with you my experience so far. We changed our eating habits back in January and since have been eating our fats (coconut oil, butter, etc.), cut out the trans. fats, soy products, and past./homo. dairy products. We’re enjoying our raw milk, our free range beef, and chickens. That said, I am now 8 weeks pregnant, and just got a call from my OBGYN to tell me that my progesterone levels are great! This is the farthest along I’ve ever been, and during the last failed pregnancy my progesterone levels were low. This way of eating was so contradictory to everything I have ever known that at first I didn’t want to even listen. But then I started reading and couldn’t help but agree. So I prayed and by faith switched everything over. I am so thankful we did. I thank the Lord. I thank Him for you and your testimony which has been an encouragement to my family. Thank you Diane.” – Harmony
“The Nourishing Traditional Diet course gave me the knowledge to make healthier choices. The information on salt and oils was especially useful to me. This course has made me much more creative with my breakfast and lunches. Instead of a bowl of cereal with milk that has been processed until there are no nutrients left, I have eggs with veggies…delicious!” – Margie Z
