(client: Claire) "Getting Started"
My name is Claire, I am 37 years old and I weigh 120 pounds more than ‘the chart’ says I should. I’ve always been big, but I’ve done enough energetic stuff that I thought ‘a couple extra pounds’ wouldn’t affect me too much. But now I’m closing in on 40, fighting with diabetes, and noticing physical limitations that affect my choice of activities. It’s time for me to get healthy, and give myself the freedom I’ve always wanted and deserved. Why did I choose Dominique to guide me through this huge life change? There are a LOT of nutritionists out there, and I’ve done a lot of different programs. But with all that I know about nutrition—and trust me, repeat dieters tend to know a lot about nutrition—Dominique was able to tell me things right away about the way my body processes food that really made me think. Plus she makes lots of Mediterranean food, which I love, and is French—so I assume she has a taste for delicious food.
