Success Stories

“When I first reached out to Amber I was struggling with emotional eating on a daily basis. As a result I was bloated and felt so sensitive to everything I ate and also had extremely low energy. I found it quite difficult to get through my days with how poorly I felt. I didn’t realize how much of an impact emotional eating and no self-care was having on my mental and physical health.

After six months I feel like a completely new person. My digestion feels wonderful, my clothes are fitting looser, and I am now more aware than ever of what triggers me to use food to cope with my emotions. I am also happy to say that I am no longer going to food to sabotage. It feels good that I am starting to take care of my health. I am seeing food more as medicine rather than using it as punishment.

If you are struggling and want full freedom I highly recommend reaching out to Amber for support. “

LAURIE

“I used to think I could only be happy if I was thin and used food as a crutch for many years. After trying diet after diet and continually failing I knew I needed a different approach. My sister referred me to your podcast and then I reached out to inquire about your services.

Investing in myself was the best choice I could have made. Amazing things have happened while working with Amber. When I first started I struggled deeply with emotional eating. I now only see food as fuel and no longer emotional eating. I now can feel my feelings and cope with them in a healthy way.

The coaching helped me to learn to not punish myself with food and internalize or blame myself for everything. Stuffing myself with food does not fix anything. It taught me to do the work and actually think and become aware of what I am doing. I am now easily letting go of the weight I’ve been carrying, balancing my hormones and I have never felt more confident in my life.

I am so at peace with my body. I am a beautiful person and I found that through this coaching. When you allow yourself do the deeper work you feel worthy of love, health and also I’ve opened up to be more vulnerable in my relationships. Thank you for helping me find my power.”

DANA

“The last 8 weeks has been life changing. As a business owner you get consumed in life. Being able to take a step back and focus on who I am and what I want and how I want to be for the rest of my life, and take the time to do that is important.

Learning about self-care, the importance of sleep and being prepared with healthy food are so key. I also started to work on delegating more to my team in my business which has given me extra time to dedicate to myself. I’ve also learned how to take time to listen to my body, which has helped be become aware of my self-sabotaging mindset.

Awareness and taking the time to slow down and listen to my body has allowed me to feel the hunger signals my body is giving me. As well I am more aware of how I feel after eating certain foods or doing certain exercise and if it feels good or not. I realize I am not my ego, which has given me more confidence with the body I live in.

I highly recommend this program and the support and accountability provided will help you make really great changes in your health journey, especially with your challenges keeping you stuck. “

ALISHA

“Before working with Amber I felt like I was in a prison with respect to food and self-loathing. I spent decades of my life in a state of extremes – yo-yoing between crash diets and restricting with being completely out of control with food and binging. I was miserable and felt ashamed and alone.

Amber helped me understand the “whys” of my patterns and from there helped my introduce strategies to break these cycles. For the first time in my life I do not feel consumed with thoughts of food. I feel comfortable and confident in my own skin. My life is balanced and no longer about extremes.

To my surprise, my journey with Amber went much deeper than my relationship with food. I had no idea that I wasn’t showing up for myself in life. I have learned how to make myself a priority and easily set boundaries without guilt.

Amber is passionate, easy to talk to and has always made me feel safe and not judged. I am extremely grateful for all she has taught me. She has given me back my freedom and a new perspective on life.

Thank you Amber!”

“I had been struggling with perfectionism, binge eating and an all or nothing mentality for most of my life. Amber provided me a safe environment to explore my feelings and struggles and taught me tools to get to a place of balance, acceptance, and self love. I no longer emotionally eat and have so much more energy. “
 
SHEENA
“After enjoying seeing some recipes on Amber’s Instagram feed, I decided to reach out to her as I had been struggling with my weight and emotional eating for years. This was the highest weight I’d ever been at, and I felt so bloated and moody. Once I started to work with Amber, the first step was understanding what was triggering me to go to food. As I started to use self-care to cope with stressors instead of food, I notice my cravings calm down and digestion improve. I also noticed my clothes started to fit looser. A year later I had to go buy a whole new wardrobe because everything got so loose. My family has noticed I’m calmer and happier, I have a closer relationship with my husband and of course I now am feeling more connected to myself. Working with Amber has completely changed my life, I now say yes to myself more rather than everyone else. I don’t need to use food anymore to deal with stressors and feel so free to enjoy healthy indulgence and have lots of healthy food available for myself and my family. This journey has been life changing and is the best investment I’ve ever made. If you are wanting support with emotional eating and gaining balance with your health, you must reach out to Amber.”
 
SARAH S.
“I reached out to Amber because I couldn’t get over my binge eating alone. I read and heard through Amber’s podcast that she had been through binge eating herself so why not trust and reach out to her. One of the biggest achievements of working with Amber is I now have no need to binge and I’m free from food and it’s such a freedom. Words can’t describe how amazing it feels to not use food to deal with stressors anymore. When we began to explore the layers of my health journey, Amber was able to help me work through so many different struggles with me for my body image, digestion, hormones, and health. Amber is very empathetic and connects and builds safety for her clients and it helped me open up to do the deeper work. She makes it easy to connect. I also think that through the time I’ve worked with Amber, the structure of working together was very helpful. We started working on things that I felt comfortable with before getting more vulnerable. Life isn’t the same as it was before. It’s got so many colors and is joyful and I’ve learned how to set boundaries and make myself a priority. I’ve been spending more time doing self-care has made me feel more grounded and stable. Also more aware of many things because I have time to reflect and time to take time to process and not just be too busy. Even my blood sugar is more balanced. When you see that your body isn’t your enemy and when you build love for yourself then you see everything in another light and life becomes so much happier. I cannot put it in words and I am so grateful and thankful for Amber’s support.”
 
JOHANNA E.
” I made the decision to contact Amber as I had been listening to her podcast for a long time and realized that she would be able to offer the support I needed. After 10 years of fighting with my body and having a negative relationship with food I knew I was ready and needed to make a change. Over the past year Amber has helped me to build awareness and heal my relationship with food and my body. This experience has changed me as I no longer use food to deal with my problems and have learned to set boundaries to support my health. Also, I now recognize how self care must be a priority as it provides a positive way to manage stress and build mind-body connection. I don’t know where I would be right now if I had not reached out to Amber and decided to put myself first. I am so grateful for this experience.”
 
MEGAN
“At the time, I had been listening to your podcasts for probably about 4-6weeks, and during that time I was amazed at how much I could relate to the very experiences that you were sharing within your podcasts. So many of the stories that you shared hit home for me, as I felt like I had been in those very same shoes, and so I decided to request the 30 minute consultation to learn a little more about your program. Another reason I reached out, was because I was struggling with weight gain.

Right from the start, there was something about our first initial 30 minute conversation that resonated with me. I have to admit there was a part of me that was a little hesitant to commit because I have tried so many other meal plans, fitness programs, and “30 day challenges”, none of which seemed to help me. Following our first initial 30 minute conversation, I think I even told you that I needed a little more time to think about it, as I couldn’t understand how “this program” could be any different from any other one that I had tried before. You had agreed to follow up in about a months’ time, and I am so grateful that you did. I remember during our follow up conversation feeling so overwhelmed with emotion because deep down I knew I needed a change. I just had no idea what that change was.

The support has been amazing in so many different ways.

I had no idea how horrible of a relationship I had with food, but I also had no idea how horrible of a relationship I had with myself.

About 4 years ago I entered a fitness competition. I was in the best shape of my life… Or so I thought. I looked amazing, however inside I had developed extreme criticism of myself as well as a show mentality that affected me, my hormones, and my food choices each and every single day thereafter. As anyone who has competed before knows, that image does not last long as your body is put to extreme tests and cannot usually stay in that condition for long. Eventually you start to put weight back on. PostComp, the weight started to pile on, and my frustrations grew. I became a binge eater. I was in this vicious diet/binge eating cycle consisting of supplement consumption, and food restrictions. Not only that, but I had created this hateful, hurtful, disrespectful relationship with myself. The worst part, was that I had no idea that I was living my life in this neglectful, hurtful, show mentality way. I was not living my life to the fullest, I was merely existing. I truly had lost myself, and was a very unhappy person. Not only that, but I found myself constantly comparing myself to other people.

Fast forward to now, with your guidance I have developed this amazing relationship with myself that allows me to enjoy food without restriction. My digestion is amazing. Bloating is now minimal. I understand and know what foods my body loves, and what foods it does not prefer. I now enjoy a lot of the foods that I was restricted to eating while on a competition diet, and had completely cut out from my diet.

Working with you has been amazing! I feel like this burden has been lifted off my shoulders, because I am no longer thinking all day long about what I should and shouldn’t be eating.

Your support has been truly amazing. I had no idea how much my “show” mentality was affecting me every single day. Not only was it affecting my physical appearance, but it was wreaking havoc on both my emotional and digestive system as well. And to make matters worse, I became so critical, judgmental, hateful towards myself. I was stuck in this rut of feeling unworthy, and had become so disconnected with myself and the “little girl” inside that I was not living my life. I was merely existing.

The support has impacted me in so many different aspects of my life, not only with my relationship with food, but with my relationship with friends, family, and fiancé. There is this huge feeling of freedom that has been created because I have broken down the barriers that I had set for myself. It is so empowering to finally honor myself, and stand in my truth.

I have made so many changes. The biggest of all would be making time for myself. Through your coaching I have experienced how incredibly important self-care is and how much it benefits and influences every aspect of our day to day lives.

Not only am I eating better, but I am so much happier. I feel more compelled to reach for a healthy snack out of impulse, rather than out of restriction. I have cut out certain foods that I know seem to agitate my body. At first it seemed uncomfortable because it meant I needed to find replacements for those items. One item that I have cut out from my diet is dairy. Ice Cream used to be my weakness, and now I no longer crave it.

One of the biggest take homes I have received through your support is the appreciation of myself, my body, and everything that I am capable of.

Amber, You are such an inspiration to women of all ages.

I would encourage anyone feeling “stuck” in any aspect of their life, to reach out to Amber and have that initial conversation, because I truly believe you will benefit in more ways than you ever could think possible. And to those fellow entrepreneurs, who work endless hours, this program is so worth the time! Self-Care is so important! And after all, the best investment you can make is in yourself.”
 
MELISSA T.

“I reached out to Amber after listening to her podcast. She was speaking to me, everything she said was connecting to me. I felt it wanted to make a change because I was tired of living a certain way. Once I started I wanted to keep going. The bumps in the road helped me learn. They helped me to build awareness with my body. Amber’s support helped me build a mindful relationship with food. I became aware of what I was putting into my body. I feel better overall because of it. I didn’t realize how damaging emotional eating was until I overcame it. Overcoming emotional eating eliminated my cravings and digestive symptoms. It also improved my energy levels, and I stopped feeling sick after indulgent meals. I also don’t feel the need to go to food when I feel stressed out. Working on my mindset also helped me understand where the emotional eating came from, and helped me build more confidence. Confident with myself, confident with my body and with my food choices. I also feel confident setting boundaries wherever I need to, to make time for myself again. I recommend anyone seek out support from Amber who needs it. Know she will give you the proper tools and support to set you on the right path.”
 
AMANDA S.
“When I first met Amber last year, I was not in a good place. I was 2 years divorced but not at all happy about it. It broke my heart. I felt in a spiral in my own health. I didn’t realize how deep seated things were at the time. I remember swallowing food and crying. I turned to food, negative self-talk, alcohol, to the point where one day I just went, “I don’t feel well and I need to stop punishing myself and treating myself so poorly because no one else is noticing.” It was all self-inflicted. I hit rock bottom. I thought if I don’t do something today, it’s just going to get worse and I wanted it to stop. I saw Amber a couple of times on TV and read her story and realized she has lived it. That helped me to gain trust. I doubted how someone younger with less life experience could help me at the time. After the first meeting, I know I was climbing back up the right way. I knew I wasn’t going to hit rock bottom anymore. Working through the emotions, sharing my story when no one else cared or understood what an impact it had on my health was huge because that started to support a shift in the mind and the negative self-talk. The mindset and changes of my thought process and how I took care of myself completely changed. It helped me learn how to deal with my emotions without food, and therefore gain freedom from sabotage with food. I now have balanced digestion, better energy, have lost the weight and enjoy nourishing my body with foods that make me feel great.

Because Amber lived this, her knowledge and relatability is extensive and it really works. Her support was priceless and if I messed up I just got back on track with no judgement. One of the best things of this year was going through the stuff, past, present and future, what was holding me back, what wasn’t, why I wasn’t healthy. And that is a whole lot of mental stuff and that is the absolute diamond of this whole year. I can’t thank you enough for the way your process works. This support is unlike any other because it actually addressed the mindset and what we do on a daily basis. This program is life changing. I’m so grateful that I crossed paths with Amber.”
 
KAREN

“Working with Amber for a year was life changing. I didn’t realize how long I spent putting myself last and how it impacted my health. I learned why I wanted to emotionally eat and ended that habit. I also balanced my digestion, added in more variety of different foods and lost weight that was hindering my health. Amber provided me with so much knowledge, education and support that I know I will be using for life. Thank you for all of your help.”
 
DIANE
“After working with Amber through her 8 week Group Program I see a shift in every area of my life. I have stopped emotionally eating and now eat to fuel my body. Food is no longer the enemy to me, it now supports my health. My digestion is improving and my cravings are gone. My relationships are improving all around me and I feel bad ass saying no more and putting myself first. I’ve also built the confidence to increase my rates and prices in my business. I look forward to continuing this journey, it’s life changing.”
 
CAREY
“I was always a diet kind of person and had always struggled with my weight and food. I would use food to deal with stress, or if I was bored, or feeling overwhelmed because I had too many tasks on my plate. Then I met Amber. Her unique approach to support me to build a healthy relationship with food and help me be free from my food addiction was something I never thought possible. Fast forward one year and I no longer eat for stress or boredom reasons but instead because I’m actually hungry. I’ve also lost 30 pounds, my clothes feel amazing, I have so much energy and I’ve learned how to take time to take care of me. I only know I will continue to enjoy this journey and can’t thank Amber enough for her help.”
 
BRIANNE
“For the last 20 years I’ve struggled with major digestive issues and low energy and have never been able to figure out why until I saw Amber. Her knowledge and thorough investigation of my symptoms and support helped me more than I could imagine. I’ve never had such high energy levels, and my tummy has never been happier. Thank you to Amber for helping me with this struggles that I thought I’d never be free of.”
 
ZARA
“I worked with Amber for over a year and can say after seeing countless doctors and health care practitioners about my struggles to lose weight, exhaustion and hormone imbalances over years, I have finally found balance! I have so much energy, my digestion is working properly without feeling bloated, I’ve balanced my hormones and have also lost the weight I wanted to without dieting or fighting with my body. If you feel like you haven’t gotten the answers or support you really seek to feel amazing and lose weight in a healthy way, I highly recommend Amber’s services to get you there.”
 
SAM
“Working with Amber truly changed my life. I’ve always put everyone else first, and have always used food to deal with my stress and emotions. After getting her support, I no longer use food to cope with my stressors, am now taking time to take care of me and have tried so many new and wonderful foods and recipes that taste amazing and are giving me more energy. If you are struggling with healthy eating and feel overwhelmed at where to start you should definitely seek Amber’s support.”
 
JULIE
“I started working with Amber 6 months ago and was struggling with emotional eating, exhaustion, putting myself last and disliking the way my body looked. I also had really bad sugar cravings and was always bloated. After having a baby I was pressuring myself to get back to my pre-baby weight and had struggles losing weight. After going through this journey with Amber, I feel like a completely new woman. I don’t emotionally eat anymore, I have tons of energy, my digestion feels great and don’t have any cravings. I’ve also learned how to make myself a priority, do daily self-care and am really learning to love me. I can’t thank Amber enough for helping me to find my true self. I would highly recommend her if you are struggling with emotional eating and any health issues.”
 
KARLEIGH
“Amber was the keynote speaker at our Be Well Retreat. Her candid and captivating opening remarks really connected with guests and set the tone for the day. Subsequent presenters referred to Amber’s themes of self care and compassion repeatedly, which demonstrated that her work transcends modalities and is relevant to anyone striving to live a happier and healthier life. We highly recommend Amber!”
 
STEPHANIE JACKMAN
Founder & President at REAP Business Association
“I have a long history of binging and starvation cycles. I sought Amber’s help when I was at my deepest low when food was the only thing on my mind. I was in a food prison, obsessing about what to eat and what to not eat, procrastinating work by checking for recipes, struggling focusing, no sleep, feeling disgusted with my body, depressed, no digestion, preventing myself from all kinds of social activities, feeling not worthy of love… Amber introduced me various tools to build self-connection and self-love, which seemed unimaginable at the time. She offered endless loving support and enthusiasm along the way, which enabled me to keep focus on being consistent with my new healthy path. I managed to build a new healthy and self-loving personality who always puts themselves first and has no need, nor no interest in overeating or starving herself. I enjoy good food and I regularly eat out, but my life does not center around food and I do not feel guilty about enjoying a lovely meal, nor do I feel tempted to overeat. I also managed to find focus and energy, have regular bowel movements, build a beautiful self-awareness and self-connection, allow myself to enter a loving relationship. Treating myself to working with Amber has been one of the best gifts I have given myself.”
 
DARJA V.
” I had the opportunity to hear Amber speak at our ‘Ace Babes who Brunch’ event this past weekend and I was completely blown away. Amber spoke with vulnerability and relatability that had the crowd nodding and note taking along the way. Her natural ability to empower others was fully present and Amber seemed calm, cool and collected while digging deep into her personal story. Amber made me feel comfortable with my own experiences with negative self talk or body image and inspired me to self reflect and confront past experiences that are holding me back. I’m so grateful to have had Amber as our speaker and I can’t wait to create a deeper conversation to further inspire our community to live their best lives without barriers, with healthy boundaries.”
 
MANDY BALACK
” Words cannot express my gratitude for Amber! I have made more significant changes working with her in the last six months than I have in the past 4 or 5 years on my own. My digestion is SO much better than what it used to be – I no longer suffer from pain, bloating and indigestion every time I eat. While the physical healing I have experienced has been amazing, the most valuable change she helped me make was repairing my (unhealthy) relationship with food and myself. I no longer fear someone suggesting we go out for a meal, or having internalized panic attacks in the grocery store when my boyfriend puts a non-organic food item in the cart. She also taught me the value of self-care and that the relationship I have with myself is just as important as, if not more than, the relationships I have with others. She not only teaches you these things, but actually guides you through step by step to achieve them. I have a whole new perspective on life and what it means to be healthy and things are finally starting to feel BALANCED in all areas! 10/10 would recommend her to anyone struggling with any health and/or emotional imbalances.”
 
CARRIE BASECK
“I just finished up my year of working with Amber. She is so great and understanding and patient. During the first 6 months or so I was resistant to do the work, but she never gave up on me and kept giving me the tools to work through my resistance. I have finally gotten below the 200 lb mark and feel freedom that I haven’t felt for a long time. I will continue to use the tools Amber gave me to continue on this journey and stay binge free. She is a beautiful soul and really wants you to have the freedom you deserve. Don’t hesitate to work with her.”
 
STACIE
“After struggling with some health issues and not getting the answers I sought while fighting with my body to lose weight I felt overwhelmed. Every week I hear you on the podcast speak about listening to your body and getting a second opinion as their maybe something else going on, etc. I know of a Naturopathic doctor in my area who is also an herbalist. I struggled to see her because of money. She doesn’t accept insurance and it would have to all be an out of pocket for me. I really struggled to make an appointment but listening to your podcast every week forced me to make a change. I saw her this past Tuesday. She put me on a natural food enzyme supplement designed to help my kidneys cleanse and a digestive enzymes to ensure that when I do eat, my body is absorbing all of the nutrients. She told me that lack of appetite is a direct symptom of chronic kidney disease as well as the low back pain. Over time she said my appetite will normalize as well as my entire body. After seeing her Tuesday I began to feel better the very next day. I urinate like a normal healthy person should and I have increased energy!

I had stopped worrying about weight when I realized after listening to your podcast that health is most important and when the body gets into alignment the body will begin to release weight. I got on the scale yesterday and I’m down 3 pounds. I know this is coming from my body (kidneys especially) beginning to heal.

I wrote all this to tell you that if it were not for your podcast I would have just accepted what a medical doctor told me and lived with it. Weekly I listen your Sundays podcast at least twice during my week while working. Your knowledge is priceless. Thank you for doing what you do. When I say it changes lives, it literally does because it’s changing mine! “
 
DENISE B.

“When I was first introduced to Amber by a friend of mine, I was at a complete loss of what to do for my 11 year old son. He had been struggling with a health issue for almost 2 years and doctors could not find anything wrong. Every 3-4 months he would be sick for 2-3 days, buckled over in pain and vomiting. With Amber’s guidance, we were able to determine Cale’s food sensitivities, find healthy, delicious alternatives that he LOVES, and get his body back to its natural healthy state again.

Not only has working with Amber made an incredible difference for my son, it has also prompted healthy changes for our entire family. Today, if it’s not “Amber Approved”, it doesn’t go in the shopping cart!

Amber, we cannot thank you enough for everything that you have done. We couldn’t have done it without you!”
 
CAROL LASHMAR

“I worked with Amber for 6 months and it changed everything for me. I suffered from disordered eating and eating disorders for almost ten years and my body image was at rock bottom. It affected all areas of my life.

After a big move to a new country, I felt lost and depressed. Amber helped me pull myself out of the hole and take on healthy self-care practices that created a positive and powerful mindset.

She helped me realize that my relationship with food was not the only thing I needed support with. Wanting to people-please and never standing up for myself were the root causes of my eating disorders and my feelings of despair. I never felt good enough or lovable and I always attracted situations that seemed to prove that to me. It created a ripple effect, where it seemed that I would never be able to truly find myself and be happy.

Fast-forward 6 months, I have switched career paths and am on my way to making my passion my career. I am so excited for everything the universe has in store for me and I am at peace with who I am. I no longer struggle to set boundaries with people or make myself a priority. I surround myself with people, who support my goals and who love me for who I am. It is a feeling of freedom and endless opportunities.

Amber created a safe space for me, where I could share my struggles with food and my feelings of not being good enough. She provided me with plenty of tools to take care of myself mentally, physically and emotionally and was there along the way to cheer me on for every little step I took to free myself from my self-sabotaging habits.

Of course I still have bad days, but I have managed to mostly move away from using food to calm my anxiety. I also don’t put myself down for having an off day. It is all part of the journey. Being more in tune with my body allows me to give her what she needs at any given moment and truly allow for self-care as well as taking enough time for myself to slow down if I need to.

Last but not least, I was suffering from hypothalamic amenorrhea for 2 years and I finally have my period back, which was also one of my goals. Thank you for all your coaching and support, Amber. I couldn’t be more grateful. “
 
RINI

“I have been struggling with binge-restriction cycles since I was about 14 years old (I am now 28). I was chubby as a child, but from 14 years old onwards I have been very skinny to normal, never particularly fat. Yet I have always, ever since I can remember, felt fat and not good enough in my body. Two years ago things got particularly bad when I broke up with my partner and moved to another country. 7 months ago, when I started my journey towards body-freedom with Amber, I was incredibly insecure, overworked, stressed, anxious, having troubles
sleeping, fatigued, depressed, disgusted with my body, completely out of touch with myself and my body. On top of this, I was completely obsessed with food and I was binging several times per week. I spent all my free time hiding from the world, obsessing about food, numbing myself with binging and feeling disgusted with myself.

Over the last few months, Amber helped me to rebuild a new identity which can be characterized by confidence, positivity, energy, openness, love and understanding towards herself and her body. Never-ever had I thought I would experience not having any food cravings – yet this is my reality now! Of course, I struggle in stressful periods, and I even fail occasionally. And Amber is so wonderful in helping me understand, love and accept myself during the entire journey, even when I struggle or when I actually succumb to emotional eating. I cannot imagine going back to those self-sabotaging and self-hating practices and I wish the same to everyone! If you struggle with similar challenges, go ahead and book a consult with Amber. I am sure you will enjoy working with her, as she is incredibly compassionate, encouraging, helpful, and just lovely. Life is so beautiful when you open up to it!

Thank you so much for all of your support! I am really excited about working together in the months to come!”
 
DARJA

“After having a baby just over 10 months ago, I’ve been working with Amber, I’ve never felt better! I’ve learned so much from her, our family has done a complete 360 in the way we eat, what we eat and how we grocery shop. She has also taught me about the importance of self care. It has changed my life! Amber is amazing.”
 
ERICKA
“I started seeing Amber in January after struggling for years with digestive issues, low energy and awful eczema. She was very thorough in her approach helping me identify my food sensitivities, also that there were digestive imbalances that were contributing to my inflammation and skin issues. After working with Amber for 6 months my digestion is working extremely well, my skin has completely cleared up and I no longer have skin issues and my food sensitivities are gone. I would highly recommend Amber to anyone looking to help balance their health struggles. Thanks Amber.”
 
LAUREN F.
“I have so much love for this girl! @amberromaniuk is doing great things. If I could have someone I care about listen to one podcast, it would be hers! She gets to the point: health is not about the scale, or what workouts we’re doing, or even what food we are eating. Health is about feeding abundance and self-love. Health is about finding inner peace and joy that is sustainable- good times and bad. Focusing on the mind-body connection will lead us to the choices that help us grow.

This episode was especially good. Get out your pen and paper! You will want to take notes…”

“I finally got to listen to the podcast this morning and even left a review! Thank you for shedding some light on candida and candida protocol, etc, as per my question. You are a real light in my world, Amber.”
 
MYRA
“Last week I caught myself having a self-sabotaging tendency. Before it got carried away, I started repeating the phrase “I am enough, I am enough”. After my mantra and a short yoga practice, I brought everything back into perspective. I credit it to you, Amber, for being the voice of reason in my back of my mind. Thank you.”
 
ASTRID
“I love this podcast. I think for years I’d actually felt guilty about taking time for me. Now through this podcast I’ve realized that there’s no need for feeling guilty. Self-care IS a necessity. How can we truly be effective to those we love if don’t have self care?

We can’t and I know that now. I schedule a massage ?once every 2 weeks, drink Tulsi Tea️ to relax at nights and have incorporated many other things to boost my self-care.

Self-care: best thing EVER! “
 
DENISE

“A new learning I have come to adapt in my life since listening to Amber; is to schedule time for ME!! Life is so hectic and I have only just noticed that when I don’t do things for myself is when I am triggered and the most vulnerable to binge eating. It’s a long journey but No Sugarcoating is definitely making the journey positive and motivating. xoxoxox”
 
CHLOE
“I am 31 years old, and like so many women (and men) I’m an emotional eater and have been since my teens. I used to avoid dealing with stress and conflict by turning to partying, alcohol, and of course food. But about a year and a half ago I found my passion for fitness, so curtailed the drinking significantly. I competed in my first fitness competition in May 2013, having lost about 50 pounds in total. But in returning to “normal” life afterwards, I had some major struggles with food, and found myself using food to avoid dealing with all my feelings, even more than before I lost the weight. I felt stuck, and was starting to think that this was my fate for the rest of my life; I was a weak human being who would never be able to get off this rollercoaster, and I was never going to be happy. Then I met Amber. My mom says that everyone comes into your life for a reason. I met Amber randomly through a mutual friend. We instantly clicked – she is such a warm, lovely person and incredibly easy to talk to! I’ve never met someone with such great energy.

A few days later I checked out her website. As I was reading her personal story, I actually started to cry! I honestly didn’t think that anyone could relate to what I was going through; I had felt so alone before. But hearing her story was like looking in a mirror. For the first time ever, I felt like maybe, just maybe, I could get a handle on things. So I started seeing her. Amber started out by helping me learn to forgive myself, to realize that I’m only human and that it’s ok to not be perfect! She also helped me start eating foods to nourish my body, and in doing this, my binging started to happen less and less frequently!

It was not an easy road at first; when I started to not turn to food to deal with my emotions, I had to actually deal with my emotions! And that was very overwhelming at first. Amber was so amazing at helping me through this. She is so easy to talk to, and I left every session with her feeling positive, refreshed, and excited to keep moving forward. She also taught me some great coping tools that I am still putting into practice every day. 3 months after meeting Amber, I still have work to do. But when I look in the mirror, I like what I see. I’m starting to love myself. I’m “feeling my feelings” for the first time, and in doing that, I am really figuring out who I am. I feel like there is an entire world of happiness and opportunity for me that I didn’t think was ever in my grasp. I honestly can say I would not be here without Amber. I feel like she saved me – well actually, she showed me how to save myself! Everyone’s story is different and everyone needs a personalized approach. But that’s why Amber is great – she’s very intuitive and has an ability to connect with people on their level. She is absolutely doing what she was put on this planet to do, and she came into my life when I needed her the most. My mom – as always – was right.”

“Amber was the keynote speaker at our Be Well Retreat. Her candid and captivating opening remarks really connected with guests and set the tone for the day. Subsequent presenters referred to Amber’s themes of self care and compassion repeatedly, which demonstrated that her work transcends modalities and is relevant to anyone striving to live a happier and healthier life. We highly recommend Amber!”

“Dear Amber, I just wanted to say thank you so much for taking the time to come and share your wisdom, your experience and expertise with my attendees at the Urban Girlfriends Getaway”

URBAN GIRLFRIENDS GETAWAY

Your story was heart felt and touching and so many of us women can really relate to the pressures that come with trying so hard to fit in and to be “perfect”. You shared such valuable and tangible information with tips and strategies for healthy eating that can be easily implemented into daily living without feeling like we need to always be on guard or that we have to give up everything to eat healthy.

I really appreciate your ability to be flexible when my other speaker went over time. You were able to deliver a wonderful message about taking care of ourselves without missing a beat when your timing was shorted by 10 minutes.

I especially loved the seasonal holiday tips that helped put us all at ease being around an abundance of treats and goodies at Christmas time.

I look forward to having you back some time at another one of my events and to staying in touch.

Take good care and thank you again so very much!!”

MELANIE – URBAN GIRLFRIENDS GETAWAY

“I just want to take a minute to tell you how happy I was to meet Amber. I went to see her for a consultation regarding my two toddlers. They have been unsettled and unwell over the past year, and the doctors haven’t been able to find anything wrong with their health.

I filled out my paperwork before my appointment with Amber, and before we even discussed much she suggested they may be some digestive and intestinal imbalances going on with the kids, in particular with Candida.

I won’t lie, the diet recommendations were hard to follow at first, really hard. But I followed her instructions to a T, and within 10 days my kids’ behavior was back to normal and no more tummy aches. My daughter also stopped having nightmares and they each gained 2 pounds on their skinny little bodies in the first 2 weeks. This was an accomplishment for us! I am proud to refer Amber to friends, clients and colleagues, and will continue to do so. There is no greater gift to a parent than healthy and happy kids.”
 
ASHLEY

“Over the past six months, Amber has been working with me to help me improve my eating habits and teaching me how to nourish my body properly. I am always on the run, I hardly ever ate breakfast, and I was eating fast food almost daily, and my family was concerned about my lack of nutrition. Amber had me complete a nutritional assessment to determine my health concerns, and she provided a wealth of information and resources for me.

First thing she convinced me that eating a healthy breakfast every day was critical to ensure I wasn’t starving my body. She provided me with healthy options over refined foods, and lots of recipes and quick and easy tasty on-the-go snacks. Amber also convinced me to try gluten-free, dairy-free and nutrient-rich alternatives to sugar, and to my surprise, I found myself enjoying these foods as well.

Despite the fact that I am still very busy, I am feeling energetic and well-rested, all systems are functioning well and I am healthy and happy to be taking the time to eat properly and take care of myself. I am impressed with Amber’s knowledge and expertise in the field of nutrition and her ability to encourage and motivate people like me. Thank you Amber for helping me feel young and healthy again! I will be pleased to refer others to you for their health’s sake.”
 
DONNA

“Amber has changed my life! I went for years not knowing what was wrong with me and why I felt so crummy. I went to many different doctors and had several tests completed. Some diagnosed me with something but then gave me next to no help on how to get better. The first time I met amber I knew that I was in the right place. She completely understood me and what I was going through. She was able to explain what was wrong with me and give me concrete ways on how to start feeling better. She sent me emails after our visit so I had the information I needed to be successful. She is a compassionate person that GETS real life and the setbacks life throws at you. I have referred people to amber in the past and wouldn’t hesitate to do so again. She will help change your life too.”
 
LISA
“I came to see Amber after deciding to make big changes in my life to support a healthy, fit, and sustainable lifestyle. I needed help and wanted clarity on the urban legends, engrained falsehoods, and cultural “truths” to the science of nutrition. To me, that is the key to truly understanding what I eat, why, and how to make that sustainable and enjoyable without any crazy diets and or pills. I’ve learned everything from how the body processes certain foods like sugar, protein, dairy, gluten, carbs, fats and nuts to the emotional aspects of eating. Amber’s sessions are filled with great insight and her guidance is compassionate and supportive. After a short time with Amber I am armed with an education that I can use for the rest of my life!”
 
MEAGHAN
“Dear Amber, When we began our sessions three months ago, I knew there were diet related issues going wrong in my body, and other problems that could be addressed naturally. Last year was very stressful, and one of my goals for this year was to move into a place of greater health with a natural approach. My frustration with my family doctor was that she only seems to have two tools – drugs and surgeries. I knew there are alternative and naturopathic ways of getting to the sources of issues and not just treating symptoms.

I am so glad I came to you for help. Your understanding of how the body responds to different foods, and how problems can be addressed with natural means including supplements, has resulted in dramatic changes.

Thank you for sending me for the most extensive blood work I have ever had – blood work my own doctor refused to do – so that we could learn what was going on with hormones, stress levels, energy levels, and address them.

Thanks to the dietary changes and supplements you recommended, I am off anti-depressants and sleeping pills, and I have better moods, better sleep, and more energy. I cannot thank you enough for your advice, encouragement, and your extensive knowledge of the relationship between nutrients in foods and supplements and my specific health issues. You have been a better doctor to me than my GP has ever been.

I will not hesitate to recommend you to others as I am a huge believer now in what you do. I have the results to prove it.

You are terrific!”
 
RICHELLE

“She takes the time to pay attention to detail with what I request and does not make me feel overwhelmed with making these new lifestyle changes. I can now say I am excited about food and what I am eating and know I don’t have to be deprived whether it’s at home in the kitchen or out at a restaurant. “
 
JOEL
“I have been working with Amber for 6 months now and feel like a completely new person. When I first came in, my digestion was extremely sensitive, I could barely eat anything, my skin was breaking out, I had rosacea and an old injury that just didn’t seem to want to heal.

After Amber helped me to identify I had some digestive imbalances including Candida we got to work right away to balance my digestion. After about 2 months all of my digestive pains and bloating had completely disappeared. My skin and rosacea cleared and I no longer felt uncomfortable in my own skin.

One of the biggest surprises was going for a bone scan to see an old injury, not only to see it had healed, but actually that it had gotten stronger, rather than weaker like the doctor said it would.

I have been able to add in lots of healthy foods to keep my satisfied and am so thankful that I had Amber to help me on this journey. I would highly recommend her to anyone that wants the support and answers you have been looking for, but that no one else has been able to give you. She is truly an expert in her field!”
 
MICHEAL

“I came to Amber with about 20 pounds to lose, largely in my abdominal area, as well as lots of digestive discomforts that I have been struggling with for years. We jumped in right away and identified some food sensitivities that were contributing to the problem.

I swear after a week I was already feeling so much better. My digestive discomforts had gone away and I was able to easily identify which foods bothered me, and stay away from them. Now are 3 months into our program and I’ve lost over 15 pounds, my waist has gone down over 6 inches and all of my clothes are almost to the point of fitting too large.

Amber really knows how to address all the different layers of the body including my energy levels, digestive balance, cravings and which foods best support my body. I also really enjoyed one of her bonus options of her program including a grocery store trip which helped me to really identify reading labels and finding hidden sugar.

I highly recommend Amber as she really is very knowledged in her field and can provide instant results to those she works with because she deeply understands what they are dealing with.

Thank you Amber for helping to get me to optimal health.”
 
JAMES

“When I started to work with Amber I was exhausted, craving sugar like crazy and had no idea why my body was acting this way. She was able to help me identify that I had some digestive imbalances and imbalances with my adrenals that were contributing to my symptoms.

After eliminating refined sugars, eating more foods to boost my energy and balancing my digestion, I have been feeling amazing ever since. I feel like the tools Amber has given to me will be with me for life, and I would highly recommend her to anyone who is looking to reach higher energy levels and be free of their annoying cravings. Thanks Amber! “
 
SHEENA

“I have been working with Amber for a while now and I can really say she has helped me to change my life. I used to turn to food in stressful situations and had a serious issue with binge eating.

After about 6 months of working with Amber, I had gotten my binging to a minimum and my cravings for sugar were lessening. Now, in my second 6 months with Amber, I have completely stopped binging, no longer crave sugar or fast food and am feeling freedom from my old habits.

She has also helped me to identify why my energy is so low and now we are working on balancing that. I feel so confident in Amber’s expertise and am a completely different person because of it. Amber I really owe you my life as the one I was living was full of suffering, and now it’s full of happiness.

For anyone who is suffering with binge eating or body image struggles, I highly recommend you reach out to Amber because she understands what she is going through since she went through it as well. I think that gives her a huge edge in understanding her clients.”
 
JESSE

“When we first came to see Amber our eating was a mess. We pretty much just ate out of boxes and packages all the time and were a bit hesitant about how healthy eating would make us feel better.

Amber took us at a mindful pace and slowly started to help us to change the ingredients in our cupboards to healthier ones. We found going grocery shopping with her to also be very useful as we really learned how to read labels.

Amber also had recipes for everything we needed with healthier ingredients so we didn’t and don’t feel deprived at all with the transition to healthier eating. Our energy is better and I’ve lost over 15 pounds and still counting.

We now have made the healthy lifestyle changes we’ve wanted to for ages and know we will never go back to our old ways. Thanks for your help Amber!”
 
JIM & DAWN

“I had always wanted help with figuring out the foods I was sensitive to but hadn’t found the right person to help. One of the first things that I did with Amber was identify my sensitivities to wheat and dairy which helped me to more easily eliminate them.

I started to feel relief right away and instantly my stomach was feeling better. I wasn’t getting bloated anymore, which was one of my biggest frustrations.

My moods also improved, and so did my energy. I am so happy I found Amber, she really helped me to eliminate my symptoms so I could be happier with my body.”
 
STEPHANIE

“When I started to see Amber I was bloated, craving sugar and bread all the time, and emotionally eating to help deal with my depression. I was just overwhelmed.

Amber was able to help me identify that I was struggling with Candida which can affect the mind and the body. She also was able to help coach me through my emotional eating struggles and help me to make more mindful choices so I could take better care of myself.

After eliminating the Candida I felt so much better, my brain fog is gone, I have better mental clarity and my mood is light and happy. I am no longer bloated and am no longer craving sugar either.

I no longer use food to cope with my emotions and this is all thanks to Amber. I feel a new freedom I haven’t felt in a long time and would highly recommend Amber to help support you with your food journey.”
 
JAYNE

“When I first started working with Amber I was consuming a lot of aspartame and didn’t even realize it. I had to have my diet pop and other foods with it because I couldn’t stop craving them. I guess in a way I realized that I was pretty much addicted to them.

Amber helped me to identify this and get me off of aspartame. She also helped to support me to balance my body so I could get off of my depression and high cholesterol medications by my doctors call. It feels great to be prescription free and no longer have any cravings for aspartame products.

Thank you Amber for helping me to get healthier so I can lead a better life.”
 
BRYAN

“Upon coming to see Amber I had had a serious problem with food addiction and emotional eating. I was almost 300 pounds and had yo-yo’d up and down for the last 10 years of my life. I was so tired of this, and of looking at my body seeing what I had done to it but had no idea how to stop.

I wanted to get more into working out but was concerned because of my weight. Upon sitting down with Amber at our first assessment I felt like I was in the right place. Because she shared her personal story about her own past struggles of food addiction, I was instantly able to relate and trust her. I finally had a feeling of hope that someone would be able to help me.

She has been supporting me to clean up my eating, and become aware of why I want to emotionally eat instead of deal with my emotions. I’ve already lost over 30 pounds, have better energy, improved digestion and am finding my workouts easier every week.
I am now fitting into clothing sizes I have never been able to wear, and feel like for the first time in my life I won’t fall back into old habits and gain all of the weight back. I am excited to keep working with Amber as her coaching has been a huge reason for my continued success, without it I don’t know if I would still be moving forward and for that I thank you.

For anyone dealing with food addiction or emotional eating, Amber is your girl, she knows what you are dealing with and I guarantee she can help you. Don’t wait any longer, get started with freedom from food now!”
 
GEOFF

“I started seeing Amber late in the fall and was so frustrated with my weight. It was easy to gain, and I could never lose it, and for over 10 years would gain and lose the same 2-3 pounds over and over. I knew this wasn’t meant to be.

After being assessed by Amber we started to do the work to clean up my eating. We eliminated foods that my body wasn’t responding well too, and cleared up my digestive issues. I am happy to share, that after 10 years, the weight is started to drop off, I have lost over 15 pounds and am still going. I will continue to work with Amber until I see all the weight come off as I am not sure I would have been able to lose the weight without her.

If you are feeling stuck with your weight I highly recommend coming to see Amber as she is really an expert with helping to figure out WHY nothing is changing. She won’t stop until she helps you to figure it out. Thanks Amber, excited to continue to work with you.”
 
CLAIRE

“We sought out Amber’s help to help clean up our eating and lose weight. We figured we were doing a good job but Amber pointed out that there were a lot of hidden ingredients that were interfering with our goals.

We really found it valuable to try new foods, learn how to read labels while grocery shopping and we have lost the weight we wanted with Amber. We now have great tools to use for the rest of our lives and are very thankful to have met Amber.”
 
RYAN & LAURA

“We started our health journey and really had no idea how to eat properly. After starting to work with Amber, we were able to start cleaning up our eating. We also realized we were struggling with digestive issues and emotional eating which we really weren’t even aware of because we always ate when we were bored or stressed.

We have lost almost all of the weight we’ve wanted to lose, and now have completely changed the way we eat. Our energy is higher, our cravings are gone and we no longer have any tummy issues. Thanks Amber for equipping us with the education and tools that we needed to make healthy lifestyle changes, lose weight and feel more confident.”
 
JORDAN & KAYLA

“I had no idea how to cook, and I really wanted to improve my eating habits, but without knowing how to cook it seemed impossible. Amber offered my a special VIP cooking day for 5 hours and I bought all the groceries and she came and showed me how to make about 8 different dishes.

I now am able to make chilli, stir-fry, salads and dressings, cook eggs, pie, apple crisp and more. I now prep all of my food ahead of time and am eating healthy and feeling satisfied all the time. Amber also has great recipes that are delicious and easy to make.”
 
ROBERT

“Dear Amber, I woke up feeling refreshed and awake. It was not to long ago I meet you at your office for a meeting about my dietary symptoms. I was constantly feeling sluggish, tired, and unable to digest most foods. With a few assessment tools you had and your vast knowledge of Nutrition and presenting symptoms you were quick to make an action plan.

The programs that you provide for your clients makes the change to better eating comfortable and achievable. What I really enjoyed about your options is that you were able to taylor your program to my personal situation. You are able to help a person who has not ever address their dietary needs right up to someone who is constantly working on a clean eating. As your support ranged from a personal shopping trip to phone calls and or emails it was easy to get on the right track to feeling better.

I feel that these program quailites are why your clients are successful! I will not, and do not hesitate to talk openly about your services and what makes them so unique. Your clients are left feeling better, stronger and over all well. Thank you for taking the time to work with me in the past few months so that I may acheive optimal health!

As health and nutrition are ever changing I will not hesitate to stop by again for a tune up and progress update in the future. I am extremly happy that I can referr friends, family, co-workers, and clients to you!

With the Amber approved approach optimal health is achievable for anyone.”
 
COLETTE

“I most highly recommend your guidance in helping me make healthy changes in my eating habits.

You showed me that eating better is not boring; it is both healthy and interesting. Eating better is a matter of choice. I read labels, buy whole foods, and keep fresh fruit and vegetables around for nourishing snacks. I try to drink 2 liters of water every day.

I learned how gluten, dairy, refined sugar and alcohol negatively affect my body. You gave me lists of foods that fight heavy metals in the blood, foods that support my liver and foods that are anti-inflammatory. Green is good! Most foods on the lists are my favourites so eating more of them is easy. Apples, berries, cabbage, bananas, carrots, broccoli, cauliflower and avocadoes are readily available year around.

I love your 80/20 rule for eating healthy vs. less nourishing foods. Your compassion and understanding of human nature accepts that your clients will sometimes struggle to reach their goals. I came to see you feeling tired, bloated and brain-fogged. My diet was 20/80 so I had a lot to improve upon and you supported me throughout my journey.

When people say to me, “You are looking healthy, you’re looking good actually, and did you lose a few pounds?” I feel proud.

After four months working with you I am re-energized. My thinking is clearer and my sleeps are deeper. I feel much younger than the calendar says I am.

For all that you have done for me I say thank you.”
 
STEVE

“I originally went to see Amber for help with weight loss. She helped me to realize that the high volume of sugar in my diet was preventing me from losing weight. With her coaching to eliminate sugar from my diet, I was successful in losing weight. In addition to helping me with weight loss, Amber offered lots of tips, recipes and approaches for healthy eating without sugar. With her support, I have been successful at maintaining my weight and eating a healthy, well balanced diet. This has resulted in a high energy level, minimal cravings and a positive body image.”

“A tremendous THANK YOU for this podcast. It has literally transformed my life and thought process. By implementing self love and kind thoughts, the severe inflammation I had from lupus (and truthfully, inflammatory statements I made to myself) is down TREMENDOUSLY (all in just under 2 weeks). I’m truly amazed. Thank you for sharing your story.”
