Her before and after transformation is only a part of her story. It's actually just the beginning. Jennifer lost over 120 pounds, naturally, without surgery over the course of a couple years. Since then she has maintained her weight loss and focused on nutrition, health, wellness, biomechanics and toning her body shape through various forms of fitness.
The owner of DYB and Crave It she loves all things food, fitness and doggies (she is a proud doggie mama to two shelties).
She co-coached over 7 different events with hundreds of participants.
This is anything but a cookie cutter program. We tailor aspects to the needs of individual members. We monitor progress and success of each member and mak changes if needed
Beyond the weight loss, for Jennifer it's about health, wellness, feeling better and learning about food. Learning how to live the life you want and feel better. It's not about a diet, it's about adopting a way of life. A way you can live with based on your lifestyle!
She is a firm believer in nutrition first. Doing it right. She is not a believer of starvation diets or in constricting calories to achieve fast and quick weight loss (which is always unsustainable).
Her knowledge has been acquired through her experience and she uses her professional science backed research background in breast and ovarian cancer research and skillset to create an experience that is not only fun but also one that is educational and transformational.
In her opinion, it's not just about the weight you lose on the program. It's about finding sustainable solutions for you that work for you, your lifestyle and your food preferences.
It's about mindset. Having been through a weight loss journey herself, she understands mindset struggles. She understands good days and bad days. She understands what you go through, on a very intimate and personal level.
It's about finding your happy place so that you can achieve what you want and attain your goals.
It's about helping you when you hit a plateau. It's about celebrating your scale and non scale wins.
It's about every day life.
She will be co-coaching the entire program for 5 weeks and offering personal levels of support, food modifications and anything else needed for any member that joins.
