I instantly connected with Amie, finding her so engaged and compassionate. She reminded me to take a step back and consider the impact of lifestyle on my health and not just a singular focus, like calories or carbohydrates. Many times she gave me permission to get out of my “turbo, type-A” brain, to breathe, and reconnect with myself. I’ve found grace to regularly exercise, practice gratitude for my overall health, and throw away old clothes that no longer serve my new shape. Her food recommendations and recipes were a delicious bonus.
