“ I have tried every diet imaginable through the years. Nothing worked. I would lose a few pounds and I just couldn’t stick to any diet. The diet failed and I felt like a failure over and over and over. My life was a repeat movie for 20 plus years! Upon meeting Alisa this past year I knew my life was going to change…She immediately made me feel that there was help. She told me, ‘From here on out, for the rest of your life, you are going to learn how not to diet. We are going to do this together.’ I believed her, and together we did it! … when you’ve tried everything to beat something on your own and nothing has worked that’s when you can’t be afraid to ask for help.”
