Dr. Laura Foster / Testimonials

"I was skeptical to attempt the 40 Day Sugar Detox, not because of the program but because of ME. I have always said I am a sugar addict, jube jube candies, cookies, donuts, butter tarts and pasta as well. I even leaned towards the high sugar fruits. With encouragement from our daughter (who also signed on) I decided to sign up and give it my best shot. I wanted to feel better, less achy and maybe even sleep better. I knew IF I was able to follow it I would lose weight and that would be a bonus but not the primary reason for this. I honestly thought I was wasting my money, I would fail miserably. How wrong I was. It was SO easy. The handout had a ton of information along with recipes, and meal plans. So helpful. I planned meals, snacks and grocery shopping and was on my way...to success. I watched the webinars, almost all live, and the private Facebook group was so motivational.  The 40 days flew by and I was so proud of myself with how well I did through it all. My achy arm/shoulder is much, much better, my mind seems clearer at work, I seemed to have more energy and the bonus part is I am 10lbs down. I am still following it so now I am on day 55 and only allow myself the very odd "treat". I feel too healthy to go back to my old ways and don't want to ruin the results of my efforts. Thank you Laura for all your time and work in planning this for everyone."

"When I committed to the journey of the 40 day Detox program, I had no idea it would eventually become my new lifestyle and create the shift it did in my overall well being.  Laura developed a program that was easy to follow and set me up for success from day one.  I felt wrapped in support from the amazing information in the  handbook, connection to a community of individuals involved, engaging and entertaining webinar speakers, regular emails of encouragement, recipes and advice and, most of all, Laura herself being such an inspirational mentor, coach and cheerleader from start to finish.  I am an endurance athlete so had some apprehension leading up to the start of the program as much of my training diet was dependent upon carbohydrates (grains) and, some days, very high sugar nutrition, yet with advice from Laura on fueling and how my training could be supported through a low sugar lifestyle,  my training never suffered and I felt sustained energy all day long.  The biggest physical changes I noticed were no more bloating, increased energy, no afternoon crash and feeling of satiety between meals.  In no ways, did I ever feel like I was on a "diet." I can't say enough about this program and Laura.  I would recommend everyone to try the 40 Day Detox- it's only 40 days...the foods you are eliminating for this short period of time aren't going anywhere, and you probably won't miss them either in the long run.  The only thing you have to lose is your addiction to sugar.  Without this program I would still be eating how I always did and not feel as great as I do now.  I couldn't be more grateful to Laura and her program as, without question, it lead me further down the path of deeper self awareness and well being."

"My primary reason signing up for the Sugar Detox was to quite simply detox my body and maybe learn a little about sugar and the impact it has on my body.  I was ready for the next step on my healthy living journey.    What I didn’t realize when I started the detox was  the impact this program was going to make-it has been a gift.  I not only eliminated sugar from my diet but I learned how to meal plan, prep food,  how to read labels, set goals for my eating and my life, I tried a number of new recipes, and discovered just how much sugar I was eating in a day.  My family and I did the detox together and it was amazing how we all supported one another and held each other accountable through the 40 days.    We have carved out more time for family meals and spending time together.   At the end of the 40 days I can honestly say that I have never felt healthier, my skin is better, my mind is clearer, I wake up more alert, I have more energy throughout the day and I am more conscious of my food choices.  More importantly than the physical impacts this journey has taught me a lot about myself and  uncovered new passions and goals that are leading me in new directions.  I can’t express just how grateful I am  Laura.  I am grateful for this program, for your support throughout the journey, and the incredible community you are building."

"I started Dr. Foster's program with a very good grasp on "no-sugar" and Whole 30 eating in my daily life and wonder what else could I possibly learn....but Dr. Foster's Sugar Detox Program encompasses so much more than the title suggests.  It goes above and beyond! Dr. Foster has created a safe, supportive and inspiring environment that promotes a network for all aspects of wellness.   From her incredible wealth of knowledge and how to simplify it all, to her informative thoughtful keynote speakers, it covers it all! It shows in everything she does how much she genuinely cares for each and everyone of her members, no question goes unanswered!  Facebook posts are continuously replied to or acknowledged, along with private messages, to the regular emails full of content! From personal experience, no question is off limits and Dr. Foster has a large network of inspiring people to draw from in order to help. I highly recommend this program, from a newbie just trying to eat better to the health-nut guru...there are things to be learned by all!"

"I was reluctant to do the sugar detox programme, but knew it was time to make a change.  Wow, am I ever glad I did! The programme wasn’t hard to follow, the recipes were great, and it was something I could continue after the 30 days was over.  I found that I didn’t even miss sugar, which was the biggest shock to me – I was ADDICTED to sugar. It really helped to have Facebook support, and we did it together.  My 12 year old picky-eater of a son even enjoys some of the new recipes we’ve been trying. I definitely recommend this programme to anyone who’s ready to make a change."

"When I heard "sugar detox", I was ready to ditch my donuts, cakes, cookies, bread and pasta...not realizing there's sugar in absolutely everything!!!  Fruit too?!?!  Are you kidding me?!  So, needless to say, I did try my very hardest...and having such a high bar, made me do more than I ever thought I could.  Because of how insane the "rules" we're, my "cheats" or "slip ups" were like, I ate an apple one day to satisfy my sweet tooth!  Amazing, right?!  There were days it was harder than others, but overall so educational and motivating!  And now I am doing it again...knowing that every time I will learn something new, and build a stronger habit of eating clean!"

"Dr. Laura Foster's 40-Day Sugar Detox program is nothing short of sensational. As an obsessive over eater, and sugar addict I am a tough participant to have on board a nutrition program!  The curriculum was easy to follow and implement, and Dr. Laura was sensitive to not just my personal struggles with changing my food habits, but I saw her administer that personal attention to all the attendees who reached out. She has put a tremendous amount of thought, time and love, into this program and it shows in the success stories of the participants.  The materials, the Facebook group and the opportunity for one on one counsel, are several of the reasons  I would highly recommend this program to my patients and friends."

"My #1 goal at retirement was to become as healthy and strong as possible. I started my journey with weekly visits to Dr. Laura Foster's office, improving my body alignment, a walking regiment along with yoga classes and trying to eat more healthy foods. I attended all of Dr. Foster's information workshops and when she promoted her 30 Day Sugar Detox I was all in. It was fabulous! She provided meal plans accompanied by recipes and 4 incredible webinars, given by amazing experts who motivated with strategies and tips in order to maintain a healthy sugar-free lifestyle. The group webpage allowed people to post their successes and even sometime failures which met with encouragement and the most important message of loving yourself. I learned so much from being part of this group, things I thought I was doing right were often wrong and it was easy to stay excited and motivated while seeing positive results. I am so very grateful for Dr. Foster's care of my total well-being and for her willingness to share her knowledge and expertise. I would encourage everyone to participate in this life-changing program, I look forward to again being a student and participating in her 40 Day Sugar Detox."

"I had noticed previously when this program was offered and it had piqued my interest.  When the offer was made at a later date - I felt I was ready to make some changes in my eating and my lifestyle.  Even though I feel for the most part I eat pretty healthy, I had fallen into the trap of being so hungry when I got home from work - that I would typically almost eat another meal - while I was preparing dinner. (and not always good food!) I didn't really think about the how (even though my friends were asking how I was going to do this) - I was ready to jump in with both feet. I have to admit that the first 3 weeks were challenging but having the book with the menu plans and the recipes made the world of difference.  For me I think that was the major hurdle - the menu planning - but the book had it all laid out.  My biggest take way was understanding the role of having the good fats at the start of your day and how that impacted the rest of your days eating habits.  The webinars were well chose and enlightening with a great mix of guest speakers. This program made me look at this as a lifestyle choice - one that I feel I can do the rest of my life, not as a short term solution.  I did lose weight - in the right place - my belly which was an added bonus.  For me my unexpected bonus was sleep!! Yes glorious sleep!  I have been struggling with sleep issues for the last few years and feel I have tried everything to address.  I blamed it on menopause.  Well soon after starting this program, I started having wonderful sleeps - every night.  Thanks Laura for creating this program and sharing your knowledge."
