Health Coaching

 

"Evey was a caring and empathetic partner in my journey toward continued health and well-beign as I age.  She asked focused and insightful questions that helped me look at patterns in my life and in my dietary choices that were truly helpful.  She offered a variety of strategies and techniques to keep me on track toward my goals.  Her broad range of knowledge across many areas of lifestyle choices and nutrition theories allowed for lots of flexibility in my own decision making. She provided accountability without judgement and was always positive and encouraging."

Pat M., Speech Pathologist

 

"My top three goals upon starting the 3-month program with Evey were to increase my energy, make healthy meals for myself and my family, and add more balance in my life. Evey was able to help me work toward these goals by creating a customized and well thought out plan that allowed me to focus on small goals and build a healthy foundation every week so that achieving my larger goal was not overwhelming and just a part of the whole process.
I would recommend Evey to EVERYONE. Evey takes the time to understand all aspects of your life and how that contributes to your eating patterns. Her approach is fully customized to meet your specific needs. It’s not a one size fits all approach. She helps you create a plan that becomes a part of your every day life. She serves up the information at the right times and keeps you moving forward."
~ Kerri S., Integrated Marketing Recruiting and Project Consultancy

"I am a very health conscious 53 year old woman. I was eating well, exercising, taking good care of myself and yet there was some element in my diet that wasn't serving me well. Like so many women my age, I was gaining a pound here or there and was frustrated by my inability to get rid of the few pounds I had put on in my 50's. By talking to Evey, I came to understand the way sugar and a very limited amount of processed foods were undermining all of my best efforts. Through Evey's guidance to try to eliminate artificial sweeteners and make small changes in my diet, I was able to drop those few pounds and my energy level is back on track. I eat berries and other fruits and my sweet tooth is more than satisfied. This feels like an honest change for my life since I don't deprive myself. There are times when I still enjoy sweets but overall I stay on track keeping my sugar intake at bay and I am thoroughly enjoying the way I feel...
It was really quite simple because Evey made the concept easy to understand and more importantly, gave me recipes and suggestions for ways to add natural sugar back into my diet rather than wasting my "sweet tooth" on artificial sweeteners and additives. Not only is Evey knowledgeable in nutrition and healthy lifestyle but she likes to cook and she likes to eat so her recipes are actually good and her suggestions are very manageable!"
~ Susan Blumenthal

"We made the delicious purple ice cream and Julia said it is better than her favorite flavor strawberry ice cream.  We are going to try it with frozen raspberries and banana, and also frozen [mixed] berries and bananas.  Thank you so much for the great recipe...Stay tuned as we try more of your recipes."
~Diane S. 

"The most significant overall change I have noticed has been lower stress levels, feeling good about myself and setting boundaries around not letting myself get exhausted. Evey is very knowledgable, positive, professional, organized and available. It is obvious that she loves what she does and is eager to help individuals create unique strategies to improve their healthy eating and lifestyle. I would highly recommend her as a health coach!"
~ Tonja Hall, Marketing & Corporate Design Coordinator

"I wanted to let you know that Glenn has been consuming 1 teaspoon of apple cider vinegar with water twice a day everyday and we have noticed a big improvement in his cough... I do think he feels like he is getting some relief and that this simple addition to his diet has helped. Thanks so much!"
~  Deborah Darlington

"Thank you so much for your intro to healthy eating. I learned a lot. And have a lot more food knowledge to work into my meal planning. My dessert at lunch after a healthy home grown salad was a couple of almonds and cashew. Bob and I are so thankful..."

"This is a great program! [Metamorphis Detox] I figured that I can do anything for a mere 5 days, and I could!  Also, as a person working outside the home, the program's Monday-to-Friday aspect made it practical to shop and prepare food during the preceding weekend, and weekend eating wasn't constrained.   Of course, my favorite part of the program is the recipes.  They're GREAT, and include healthy desserts that I found to be as delicious as unhealthy ones. The detox made me fell good enough for me to be motivated to keep elements of it after the 5 days were over.  Thank you, MaryEllen and Evey!
~Cynthia Korman

 

"I would recommend the Metamorphosis 5-Day Detox program to everyone!!!  It is easy, delicious, and life affirming! I found their suggestions to read the recipes, organize shopping lists, and set aside prep time to be extremely valuable.  I joined the 5-Day Detox to remove my sugar cravings that I developed over the holidays, and learn how to effectively focus on eating healthy foods, drinking more water and appreciating eating healthy! The program has amazing recipes that were delicious and healthy. I enjoyed the well-structured easy shopping guide, and recipe list. Mary Ellen and Evey encouraged us with healthy tips, great Q&A, feedback, and support. They shared an abundance of recipes I may never have tried on my own, but really enjoyed!  They opened my mind to delicious, healthy food and spice alternatives that I have incorporated into my daily routines since the detox and will continue into the future.   I also learned about the importance of using non-toxic cleaners in the home, using glass bottles and storage containers and deleting use of straws, and plastic."
~Ellen McMullen, retired Hospital Wellness Educator and Teacher

 

The orange coconut treat was very, very delicious.  It satisfied my craving for something sweet.  The detox helped get me off the roller coaster of fast food, restaurant carryout and processed foods…I was able to incorporate more vegetables and fruits throughout the day by choosing several of the recipes and using the menu planner.  In addition, I was able to taste the natural sweetness of the broccoli soup on the 4th day of the detox!
~Janice M.

I would recommend this 5-Day Detox program to anyone who is feeling run down, low energy, and ready to commit to making a change in their diet to feel better…My sleep was blissful. Toward the end of the week I woke up often before the alarm feeling refreshed, no headache, and ready for the day. I also enjoyed a sense of calm, did not stress in a couple of situations which normal would have given me the “shrinking chest” feeling. I just didn’t get it this week.  I felt more alert though out the day.   Evey is a lovely, energetic, and very approachable person. She has always encouraged me and prepared me to take the steps I needed to take in my quest to incorporate healthier, more mindful eating into my life.
~Beth B., Wellness Professional

 

Thank you Evey and Mary Ellen for the wonderful experience of the 5-Day Detox! I plan to stay on the diet and make more of the recipes. Now I am looking forward to your next program. It was priced just right and not too expensive so every one can afford it. No pills or potions or lotions but just real healthy food. I have found a new food plan for my life. Thank you again. 
~Margie C

 

I was looking for suggestions on what I could eat to help be level out my blood sugar and, hopefully, lose weight. The [5-Day Harvest Your Natural Energy] program fulfilled both of those expectations! My blood sugar felt stable the entire 5 days. I also dropped 4 pounds and feel less bloated. I also learned that my body does not seem to have any negative response to GF oatmeal or brown rice. I had been avoiding both of them, thinking that I would react negatively to them. I definitely enjoyed the Salmon with Green Beans and Almonds, Asian wraps, the breakfast frittata, and the Apple, Pear Bake. I found the lifestyle tips based on  TCM [Traditional Chinese Medicine] to be helpful and interesting!
~Michele Hempel

 

"Hi. Wanted to let you know I am going strong. I am staying on the 2nd week of cleanse with a few minor exceptions. But the key principles are the same: no dairy, no sugar, no white potatoes or rice. I am using recipes in the book... I feel so much better. I am off of sugary desserts and I am amazed. I began because I wanted to eat healthier. While doing so, I have lost about 9 lbs. I am not consumed by the scale. I just weighed myself twice in 4 weeks...Thank you very much. I am glad I found you.
I know I have much to learn and it is exciting."
~ Anita Weiss, "Eating for Your Best Self" Program

You are doing a great service by providing the information, the suggestions of how to make it work and providing the support...Being accountable to someone else was important for me. It is easy for me to cheat myself but not so with other people."
~ Kathy Tschaen, Certified Massage Therapist

I give a second thought before putting an item in my shopping cart."
~ Lesley Strauss
