Testimonial: Anna, age 42

"Four years ago, I was a new mom – working full time, and had no time for myself. I was totally thrilled with my precious little bundle, but mama wanted to get her groove back. It was a huge challenge. I went through cycles, working out, eating well, losing weight then falling off the wagon. Drinking too much, eating too much, not exercising, stressed, overtired, depleted. After turning 40, I decided that enough was enough. I was toxic, uncomfortable in my skin, feeling ugly, fat, and depressed. At that time, I realized it was time to hit the reset button. I completed Dr. Sara’s course and had immediate results. I lost 20 pounds. AMAZING! After completing her course, I kept the vibe going by permanently kicking booze to the curb, most dairy, bad carbs, coffee, and bad eating habits. These days I still intermittently fast two days per week. After resetting my hormones, I have lost a total of 45 pounds and reset my metabolism. I can indulge when I feel like it, feel beautiful, lighter, and free from my toxic ways . . . and I wear size 4 pants. From a size 14 to a 4!"

"Stop the madness. Allow the wisdom of Dr. Sara and functional medicine to come to your rescue, and heal your food addiction once and for all. It’s time to reset your hormones with your fork and learn to be lean naturally."

- Dr. Mark Hyman, Ten-time New York Times bestselling author and family physician


"Dr. Sara Gottfried unpacks the science that clearly supports the heretofore politically incorrect notion that men’s and women’s brains are different. She deftly explores how these differences manifest in many of the pervasive issues that plague modern women including weight gain, addiction, depression, anxiety, forgetfulness, and exhaustion and how fundamental the brain/body connection is to overall health and wellbeing."

- David Perlmutter, MD, Four-time New York Times bestselling author and Neurologist


“Sara Gottfried speaks openly to the secret question of a generation: 'Now that we finally have things figured out, how do we stay on the planet long enough to live what we know?’ Her guidance on how to increase not only our lifespan but also our healthspan is an invaluable resource to those of us who feel we are spiritually youthing as we physically age.”

- Marianne Williamson, Four-time #1 New York Times bestselling author
