EAT TO THRIVE
Lisa Jubilee Nutrition clients share their experiences
I became a vegetarian over 16 years ago partly for religious reasons but also in an attempt to avoid the diabetes, high cholesterol, and hypertension that plagues my family. I prided myself on my “no flesh of any kind” diet discipline over the years..so you can imagine the shock that I got when I was diagnosed with diabetes two years ago! What’s worse, all of the research on-line to find the natural way (spirulina, chlorella, cinnamon, etc) to ‘fix’ myself did not work. No, not all vegetarians / vegans are healthy. After two futile and frustrating years of trying to reach my goal of getting off the harmful medicine utilized to combat diabetes and even more so, to avoid having to go on insulin therapy, I acknowledged that I needed help. My Google search for a vegetarian nutritionist led me to Lisa Jubilee of LivingProof Nutrition and Fitness, and now I can realistically say that my goal is within reach! As we reviewed my medical data and meal journal on my first visit, Lisa’s knowledge of nutrition, professionalism, and genuine sincerity put me at ease and allowed me to open up to her, and that proved to be significant because it took honest and thorough introspection to root out the causes behind what was my unhealthy relationship with food. As I began to be more diligent with the customized plan that Lisa created for me, I began to see improvement with my glucose levels. Prior to seeing Lisa, my blood glucose levels would range from 120 to over 250 during the day even though I was taking prescription medication..my fasting blood sugar levels were especially high! After just two months of following her plan, which she continually tweaked based on my preferences, metabolic rate, and weight, my blood sugar levels are well within the normal range (70 - 100)! My doctor has cut my prescription dosage in half as the normal dosage brings my blood sugar too low! Thanks to Lisa, my goal of beating diabetes is truly becoming a possibility. Let’s face it, if you are reading this review, then you are serious about improving your nutrition and overall health. Put your trust in Lisa.
Thanks for everything!

I had put on a few pounds over the years and could not seem to take them off anymore. So I arrived at Lisa’s door to truly mix it up and get some guidance. I completely changed how I ate. I went dairy free, gluten free and concentrated on lower carbs, high fats and moderate protein. Because I have arthritis, we were also aiming for an anti-inflammatory food plan as well. Weight loss was good and steady, swollen joints were no longer, but then I reached a plateau that I could not get by. I had increased my frequency of super slow weight training and added some cardio but it was not working well. So Lisa suggested Intermittent Fasting or Time Restricted Eating. I started out doing 1 day a week and then progressed to 3 days a week. I took to it well and had no problem following Lisa’s suggestion of having a green juice and some nuts during my fasting hours. I found myself feeling “empty” as opposed to “hungry” as I adjusted to this eating schedule. I didn’t feel a strong urge to eat, for empty didn’t feel so uncomfortable. I also noticed on long days of work that I was NOT tired and some of those days were 9 am to midnight. I would stop eating at 7 PM and I was just fine and in good focus. I also noticed I didn’t feel the need for any naps on days I had short sleep. SO, six and a half weeks later I moved past the plateau and lost 3 more pounds..I enjoy IF immensely and will keep it up…
Hi Lisa, Remember me? We had several sessions some years ago, I also trained with Jon. I want to tell you that the work we did together was the beginning of a very healthy lifestyle for me. It takes time to develop good eating habits, and for me, it is now a habit. I prepare almost all my days food, lots of fresh produce, grains, proteins. I make delicious healthy foods and have plenty of it. I am at goal weight 140, and have maintained this since last fall. I need to add some strength training to my routine, and plan to do that next. Thank you for your inspiration.
Finally after all of these years of carrying around an extra 10 to 15 pounds I have a life plan that works. I have tried different diets for years; low fat, high protein and the list goes on from one to the next with no luck. Lisa gave me a custom plan that was easy to follow and incorporate into my current lifestyle. I am happy to say that I lost more than I planned …and I have maintained it for over a year!(Lisa) made it easy and pain free. Thank you for all of your help and encouragement.
