Testimonials

Our clients are our proof: working with Nourish can transform your life.

Three months ago, I was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes. I was very confused about trying to understand what to eat, when to eat, and even how to eat. My doctor recommended I start a medication, and that I make an appointment at Nourish. I met with Amanda and after the first visit felt I had a much better understanding of modification I could make to my diet to help control my blood sugar. I loved being able to keep in touch with her via email for questions between appointments and found her to be caring and extremely well informed. I just had my first 90 day check up with my physician, and my A1C has gone down almost 3 points, to almost normal range, my cholesterol and triglycerides are back in normal range, and I have lost 15 pounds. I am so grateful for the support and care I have received from Amanda and Nourish. I would highly recommend their services.

I found my appointment with Jodi Serafin to be exactly what I was looking for to improve my diet and health issues. Jodi helped me design a meal program to met my needs for my health issues I want to improve. She was very knowledge and the experience was excellent. I would recommend her to others.

Between my wife and myself we have had about five visits with Melanie. We both found Melanie delightful to work with. She is friendly but professional. She conveyed important information that was understandable and practicable, without being "preach-ie" (if that's a word). My recent follow-up visit was reassuring. With her help I seem to be on the right track. Also, I found that the practice's website is very "slick" and the scheduling function very convenient and easy to use. Don't stop improving but you are already doing a great job.

I am very grateful to Abby Patterson who has been supporting me in my healthy journey. Since our first inspirational meeting, Abby guided me on portion size, alternatives that I might enjoy, and a focus on protein and additional exercise. I was happy to lose weight the first month, and change some habits enabling me to get off some of the medications I had needed to take. Abby’s guidance and advice made it realistic to follow a plan and start some healthy habits. I feel so much better and I’m motivated to continue my journey.

I have been working with Samantha Walters for a little under 3 months now and could not be happier! She tailored my eating and exercise plan to my personal likes and dislikes so it was a seamless transition. I am already down by 25 pounds and well on my way to my goal weight! I naturally make better food choices now and am feeling better than I ever have before. Thank you Samantha!

Melanie seems like an awesome nutritionist and I’m really looking forward to working with her. I felt completely at ease at sharing all my health history and the complications I have had. She was understanding and wanted to work with me to improve my condition. I left there feeling encourage and determined to try harder!

Thank you, Samantha, for helping me get on a better health track. My eating plan, which was customized for me, is fabulous. Because it is not a drastic change from my old habits, I don't find it difficult to follow and I naturally eat so much healthier now. I don't feel deprived or stressed about food. My blood sugar, weight and energy level are moving in the right direction. I have been on my plan for about 2 months and could not be happier. The activity and food plan were designed specifically for my needs, what I enjoy and what I like..... and that was the key!

Nourish Client
I am very pleased with my new way of eating. I honestly did not think it was possible for me to avoid sugary snacks and grazing but I am finding that if I eat the suggested meals and snacks I do not feel hungry. I am also aware that my servings were twice what they should be. Thank you!

I thoroughly enjoyed my visit with nutritionist, Samantha Walters! I didn’t know what to expect; I thought it would be the usual nutrition meeting (lets read a few labels, look at cereal boxes and bread wrappers, measuring cups, etc..). I was so thrilled with this appointment; the review of what I currently eat, the tweaks, suggestions and goal review renewed my motivation—I can do this. Samantha was professional, encouraging and informative; she worked with me—not me listening to what she felt I needed to do—I had input. Samantha—I appreciate you! Looking forward to my next visit!

Abby is awesome. She provides excellent suggestions that are personal and easy to follow in an environment that is friendly and fun. I was skeptical of a dietitian but Abby has changed my mind and I truly find her assistance an excellent benefit provided to County employees.

I really enjoyed my visit with Samantha Walters and she was extremely helpful in guiding me to lose weight and get healthier. Her plan was so manageable for me that I'm following easily and feeling great. I'm looking forward to meeting with her again and learning more.

My nutritionist was very informative. I have been exercising every day, with the exception of illness, since November 2013. I’ve always eaten a healthy diet or so I thought. My visit with Samantha made me realize that limiting the things I shouldn’t eat doesn’t necessarily mean I’m eating a healthy diet. For me, it’s easy to avoid unhealthy foods. What isn’t easy is knowing what, how much, or when to eat the things I should be eating. I could not be more pleased with my visit.

I am 53 years old. I had my first appointment with my nutritionist, Melanie Beers. My daughter scheduled this for me. Initially, I went to the appointment with the mindset of simply going through the motions to satisfy my daughter's request that I go. To my surprise, my meeting was very informative and I learned a lot. Melanie was excellent! She was able to answer all of my questions with expertise and knowledge. Melanie was able to turn my lack of interest into enthusiasm and curiosity about my health. I look forward to my next visit.

I was pleased with how comfortable I felt talking about difficult topics; weight and eating habits. Ms. Patterson was realistic and I left with a plan in hand. The plan worked for my lifestyle and eating habits. Great work!

The MRT and LEAP plan have changed my life! I had thought I was out of options after suffering from chronic migraines for over 25 years, and trying so many medications, alternative therapies, invasive injections and Botox, doctor appointments, and thousands of dollars spent looking for relief, but with very few results. MRT finally gave me the answers I needed for relief. Melanie Beers and Nourish Family Nutrition worked with me to use my MRT results to develop a new diet plan and lifestyle that is treating chronic migraine without medication. By eliminating the foods and chemicals that were causing inflammation and migraines I have seen a drastic decrease in migraines. Melanie was very helpful answering questions and offering guidance during the transition to my new diet and lifestyle. My neurologist discharged me from regular office visits because he is so pleased with my current state. I have been able to discontinue the two daily preventive medications I had been taking, only using abortive meds 3 or 4 times per month compared to 10 to 12 times per month previously. I just feel better overall! I am very thankful to Nourish Family Nutrition - their support has given me my life back!

I have been under the guidance of Melanie Beers for about 7 months now. In that time, my cholesterol has improved tremendously. Melanie is extremely understanding of the struggle that I have been having with my weight, and with my love of food. She has helped me to live a healthier lifestyle that is realistic to achieve.

I very much enjoyed my first appt. My Nutritionist was very thorough in determining a plan, goals, & appropriate referrals. She was very understanding & non-judgmental of my personal issues with food & goals, due to my medical issues. I would refer her without issue.

My family met with Diana Sugiuchi last week and we enjoyed our session with her. She was very professional and really took time to be encouraging to our daughter, 14 years of age, while at the same time making plain decisions that she will need to make to ensure her a healthy new beginning.

Meeting Melanie was awesome, I think this is the beginning of a good healthy friendship and professional relationship for my husband and me. Melanie gave us some valuable information and fresh ideas for smoothies and other healthy recipes. Looking forward to visiting with her again.

I've had excellent experiences with Diana at Nourish. It's always good to have someone to check in with to keep on track but her advice on meals, efforts to keep focused, and genuine concern for well-being both physical and mental is awesome.

I wanted to share some good news with you. I went to the doctor for a physical yesterday - first one in two years. I am down 45 pounds, my blood pressure is excellent, and for the first time in my adult life, my cholesterol is normal! Woohoo! Thanks for your part in this journey. 🙂 I will be running my second half marathon.

I was happy to talk with Diana about my dietary needs and exercise program. She was a great source of info and encouragement to me.

This was the first time I had ever come to a nutritionist and come to terms with the fact that I need help and guidance. Coming from someone with a past history of eating disorders, weigh fluctuation, restricting foods, and really being afraid to go out of my comofot zone, this was a big step for me. After my appointment with Melanie I felt like I finally had healthy, solid plan to create a healthier lifestyle and see results overtime versus setting an exact weight loss number or time frame. I am excited to begin this new journey and try new things to hopefully better my confidence and way of living.ir first Duathlon (run,bike,run).

Hi Diana, Just wanted to let you know I'm down to 190 pounds (from 242.5), I just recently had bloodwork done and my Triglycerides dropped from 281 to 76. On December 24th, I participated in a cyclocross race and won my division and finished 2nd in the entire field of entrants. I just became Certified as a Spinning Instructor and I'm going to be getting certified by ACE as a Sports Performance Counselor. (My wife) has dropped from a size 20 to a size 14 dress; I'm still working on encouragement to be disciplined (I'm still seeing transactions on our bank ledger for McDonalds, etc- definitely not as often nor the charges are not as much) and working on nonprocessed foods (Since we have Mom's Organic Market near us that's becoming one of my faves). (My 2 daughters) have been participating in 5K running events over the fall, as well as did their first Duathlon (run,bike,run).

Thank you very much for coming to Dunbar Headquarters to show our employees how to make Healthy, Tasty Mexican dishes. The feedback we received from our employees was very positive! They enjoy the sessions as they are fun and they take away lots of information! Some employees have already prepared the Mexican dishes. Thank you again and we are looking forward to the next session.

As a Health Promotion Manager for a large insurance company I am responsible for connecting my business accounts with health professionals that can teach nutrition principles and demonstrate healthy cooking in a fun and interactive style. Diana has exceeded the expectations of every organization that has invited her in to provide engaging seminars and live cooking demos. Everyone LOVES the samples and say they are inspired to see that it is actually very easy to prepare healthy AND great tasting meals at home. I know when I refer Diana to my business accounts they will have a thoroughly professional and wonderful experience!
