We want to thank you for your personal input. It far surpasses the help I've had with any other diet plan. -- Sylvia G

Thanks for all the information and for changing my eating plan. I stuck to it quite well today and don't feel restricted. It includes a nice variety of foods and I hope I can stick to it long-term...Thanks a lot for giving me so much support. -- V. K.

Absolutely, I have been following the meal plan listed. It's nice and easy and doesn't require too much preparation...I have reached by "goal" weight, but am trying to keep going. I need to check my body fat % too. My pants/shorts are fitting nicely. Need to tone more now....resistance training, now will pay off! -- Kari T

I so far like the plan. It is nice and easy to follow. Dinner tonight was great! -- Samantha M

Things have been going great! I really like the new routine, it is very challenging but not too much that it deters me... I am already noticing lots of change from within, too. I really think about what I am eating, which I never did before. By the way, I really enjoy the recipes in your nutrition section. Especially the pork chop marinades. So, I have managed to cut back on a lot of refined sugars. -- Valerie M

Yes, I am definitely committed this time ... I'm loving this meal planning process - no decision-making for me and it's all food that I already eat. Two days in and I haven't felt hungry or cheated once! -- Susan M

It appears I am down 2 lbs for the week. I really like the site and how it works. It fits well with a program that I finished with Total Health and Fitness in SLC. My main goal was to get back on a meal plan so as not to overeat. I have really liked the meal planning software and have been able to plan my eating much better- I'll look forward to working with you. -- Brett R

Matt, thank you so much for writing. I really appreciate it and am impressed - a lot of these fitness/diet/nutrition sites seem so impersonal! Again, thanks so much -- Meredith L

Since I began exercising and my diet on 3/1, I've lost about 6-8 lbs. (depending on the day!)...several people have commented that I look trimmer. -- Sue R
