“First of all, thanks for this program. I liked the program a lot, at first I was a bit put off by some of the new ingredients, especially since some things are hard to find here, but I realized I could follow the rules without those things.
Results: lost weight, lost belly, feel good, less lag after lunch, smoother bowel movements. Actually today I noticed something pretty cool: I usually have these nodes on the back of my neck that are enlarged (as if fighting something off) and they are much smaller.
I would do another program with you because you are awesome.”
“I really found this detox to be very helpful in many ways. It made me more conscious of what I was eating. I do have a pretty good diet, eating mostly organic, etc., but I am definitely addicted to gluten. I do still want some bread but I’ve managed to control the urge.
I have to tell you that the psoriasis that was on my elbows is gone!
What I liked:
1. I liked that recipes were provided so that I could make things during the week that I knew I could eat. That was especially helpful for work lunches. I ate a lot more kale and greens. The idea to blanch them and have them ready was helpful….and a good thing to do going forward.
2. I liked the pyramid you explained on our last class and the questions you’re having us thing about are very provocative. I’m going to spend time with them and we can discuss sometime!
3. I like the FB page and it was great to have a place where people could share recipes and ideas.
4. I like how you shared your personal struggles – it was helpful to hear how you handled some of the cravings, etc.
I think you did a great job and I would recommend this to friends. The detox part wasn’t as difficult as I thought it would be. I’m really not missing bread or sugar that much, and it’s made me want to learn more about grains, gluten.
So glad I did this!”

“I did my “post” detox body measurements last night & was shocked to see I dropped 2 inches from my waist in the last 30 days! I didn’t change my workouts at all, so this was based on the nutritional shifts alone. Amazing! I also turned my attention inward and acknowledged that I have more work to do on my relationship with food, emotional eating patterns and my innate knowing, BUT, this Detox and the support you all offered was a great step in the right direction!
I know I’m not “done” learning how to nourish my body properly. You are a wealth of knowledge, and so fun to work with, I look forward to working more with you.”

“Flatter stomach, better attitude and have made more meals this week so far than I have made total in the last 18 months. So far so good!”

“I wanted to let you know that my husband actually liked the harvest lentil soup quite a bit and was pretty OK with the curried spinach with chickpeas. A few of the group know that this man is often hard to please, so kudos to the recipe providers.”

“I impressed myself that that I was able to go 10 days without gluten, sugar and dairy! I have cooked with food & spices I have never, ever cooked with…AND have not had coffee for over 2 weeks! I broke a threshold albiet 5 lbs – a threshold none the less! Not sure what the next step is- I do know I will continue on this path to keep with the steady decrease in lbs and then morph it into something that I can continue!
Cooking more and trying new things! Pants are big on me and the ones that were too tight fit like a glove and I broke thru a plateau !
My 16 yr old picky eater actually liked the chicken and ate some of the slaw- she surprised me! There was just a bunch of chopping and cutting that I am not used to- however- leftovers for lunch!”
Amanda S. (Minnesota)
“I have to tell you, this program has really worked for me! In the last 2 days 2 of the trainers…at the gym have commented on how lean I look – my nutrition is the only change that I have made! My workouts are the same. Thanks so much for your guidance through this process! These are changes that I can live with!”
I have said it before and will say it again, this is a program I can stick with for life !!!”

“Today I woke up at the normal time and went downstairs for my morning cup of hot lemon water and my daily neck/shoulder exercises. These exercises end with 20 minutes flat on my back, which gives me lots of time to breathe and think.
So I’m lying there, taking inventory, and I realized that I’ve exceeded one of my R3 goals — and one of my New Year’s Resolution, to boot! In about three hours, I will be 50 years old. And I feel better at 50 than I’ve ever felt in my life. Physically and mentally. Not an easy goal to meet, but yay me!
I have great news: In the past three days, I’ve had only three hot flashes. I can hardly believe it.
Mary, your instinct and nurturing nature make you an ideal coach. And you back that up with your training and knowledge. You’ve taught me so much through this process.”
Eileen C. (Minnesota)
“I am really excited that for the first time in a very long time my clothes are feeling loose. You called it with the dairy – I am thinking clearer, not feeling bloated or hungry all the time any more.
Oh, I also just took my measurements like you suggested and I compared them to what I measured to today, everything is down!”
“Remember when Mary told us to put a pair of pants or some outfit that doesn’t quite fit, aside at the beginning of the program?
I bought a pair of super cute jeans at Banana Republic 3 years ago, that didn’t fit but I was determined to make them fit one day. I took out that pair of pants yesterday and am happy to report, they finally fit! I was ecstatic!
It took 3 years but not only do they fit, they look good and they’re still in style! My husband said they make my ass look great. . .how’s that for results? 😉
I’ve very much enjoyed the ease into the detox, each week building upon the next. This helped me still feel satiated and mentally good. I liked the FB forum. I really liked getting to know Mary more with the 1:1 convo’s. I would and have recommended Mary to several friends, especially her upcoming detox. I’ve learned so much and am ecstatic with Dynamic Greens, Sunwarrior Protein, hot water, essential oils, Dandelion tea, self massage and the overall continuum I’ve been on for the past 6 years to find balance.
Was I doing everything perfectly? Hell no, but I feel my best thus far, sleeping better and I’ve even been able to ween myself off my anti-depressant. ”
