Samara has given me confidence in making the right healthy food choices for me based on my age, gender, activity level and health goals. She is amazing to work with and made it easy for me to follow. I was so confused with all the information out there in the media and my personal trainer that I didn't know what to eat. Samara set up a life nutrition plan for me and I am grateful.
The nutritional plan that Samara designed for me worked like a charm!! I have more energy, more focus, and have lost weight. I am eating better and so is my whole family....thanks to Samara!
