"Since working with Kristina, I'm down 16 pounds, my inflammation is gone, my endometriosis symptoms have subsided and I just feel good mentally and emotionally, as well."
"Kristina Hess makes it seem like anything is obtainable."
"What I've achieved with Kristina is just some really good habits that I didn't have before...The simplest things really gave me the kickstart to organize my life."
"Since working with Kristina I really started to understand something about nutrition...I learned about the food pyramid, I learned about Keto.."
I was determined to find a “counselor” being a school counselor myself to support my wish to shed 30 pounds I didn't need and to avoid the many food programs and centers that never worked for me! I am approaching 70 so it was important to be careful in my approach!

Kristina helped me to understand what the body is composed of, how we process what we eat, what makes my body produce fat and precisely what I needed to do on this journey, which can take twists and turns, but with her steady hands I spent three months tailoring what really worked! I have so far lost 25 pounds and have completely changed how I choose food! I am not ever hungry and like what I am eating! I learned that I don’t need all that I was eating and what makes me lose fat! I have never worked out so seamlessly and energetically and have lost any arthritic pain I was suffering from! I have learned to drink water all day !!!

I started working with Kristina in December of 2021 on the Sugar Detox and Keto diet programs, in addition to intermittent fasting. She made the programs simple and straightforward as well as being able to be manage my diet through the holidays, special occasions and business functions. Kristina’s food plans were varied and I was always able to find something interesting, easy and on-plan to cook – I never felt deprived or experienced sugar or carb cravings. At the beginning of the program, I did feel a bit overwhelmed, but within two weeks of texting and Zoom meetings, everything started to make sense, fall into place, and became achievable and repeatable. Daily tracking of glucose and ketone levels gave me a much better understanding of how my body reacts to various foods and how I was able to find meals that were satisfying as well as on-plan. With Kristina’s guidance, daily testing and being kept accountable, my goals were not only achieved faster than I expected, but my weight loss was more than my targeted goal. I started the 6-week program with a target weight loss of 19 pounds and achieved 21 pounds. The following 6 weeks led to an additional 15-pound loss and having kept with a Keto centric diet resulted in a total loss of 40 pounds. Just as important as my weight loss, I was taken off blood pressure medication that I’ve been on for 10+ years, my sleep patterns and quality of sleep are nothing I’ve experienced in decades and my BMI and body fat are well within healthy limits. Having found a Keto focused diet easy to stick with while on business, dining out or vacationing, I remain committed to the process. Without Kristina’s guidance and support none of my success would have been achievable or sustainable and I am truly thankful for meeting and working with her.
