Verified Patient Reviews
Karen was very pleasant
Karen provides excellent guidance and suggestions. She even keeps in contact via email when I had questions or additional information.
I first met with Karen Moreno August 20, 2011. At that time, even though, I worked out twice a week intensively with a trainer and following a pretty healthy diet, I was unable to attain a more reasonable weight. Karen felt that I was on the right track, but that my diet needed a little "tweaking." We met every other week for four months until I learned how to get the best results from my efforts. She introduced me to wonderful recipes that enjoying my meals. By January 1, 2012 I was on my own. Today, May 16, 2012, I have been able to maintain the weight which I aspired with no effort at all. My weight dropped from 139 to 126 pounds which was exactly where my doctor and I felt was a healthy one for me. Karen is a wonderful teacher with excellent people skills. She makes a daunting task easy and even has delicious, easy recipes to help one learn to prepare tasty, healthy meals. It has been a pleasure to work with her, and I would highly recommend her to anyone who is having a problem achieving their goal.
