Are you wondering what Foodtrainers and foodtraining is all about? There is no better source than our clients themselves. Read what they have to say…
“Who are you?”
I am a professional running coach.
I am a 50 year old man who loves great restaurants.
I am a 38 year old who is now cancer free.
I am a college student.
I am a 43 year old mom with 2 teenagers who have completely different eating habits than I do.
I am single and work way too many hours.
I am in my late 30s and initially came to Lauren while undergoing IVF.
“Why did you start Foodtraining? What were your goals?”
I had gained weight due to my work hours. As a former competitive runner, I felt it was time to do something about it.
I wanted to lose about 20 pounds that had snuck back on over the years.
Over my seven years working with Foodtrainers, I have had 3 different goals: weight loss, prenatal nutrition and marathon training.
I wanted to eat healthier and lower my cholesterol.
I was working out a lot but not losing any weight.
I recently went from working constantly to being out of work. I wanted to use my time off to focus on my health.
“What were the keys to Foodtraining for you?”
Keeping my food log, every time I went for an Oreo or to finish my kids’ meals, I stopped because I didn’t want to record it.
Knowing I have a plan I can stick with no matter where I am on vacation or at a restaurant.
Accessibility was important to me, I often email questions between apointments.
My sessions with Lauren provide time to refocus and reset my goals and reset myself.
Going on a market foodtraining session and learning to cook a bit more.
Being accountable through weekly appointments, I had someone to answer to.
Using “special days” or the tricks Lauren implemented to break plateaus and prevent bordedom.
Consuming foods that were desirable to eat, not diet foods.
Foodtrainers is incredibly personalized. I have many friends and colleagues who are clients and everyone has a different plan and shopping list.
The one-on-one counseling, we can get at my own issues (both physical and emotional).

Overall so much better and I have more energy and vitality. And wow! I look great again in my clothes.
Great! I have never eaten better and I’m happy I don’t have to eat separate meals from my family anymore.
