" I don't have to research for a place to go anymore.  I've found it! It was time to kick-start myself into a serious weight loss plan and hope to find a way to alter my lifestyle as well. I got so much more than just that at Fresh Start.  I found comfort, guidance and support. I was taught how to achieve better health and wellness with effective techniques and recipes that were easy to take home, the recipes that my family would welcome and want to be served and shared. Thank you for all the love and care I have received.  Fresh Start has been wonderful for me and I will look forward to returning "

Weight loss: Almost 20 lbs in 10 days

" My expectations were mostly related to weigh loss and some improvement in my health. What happened there however, was nothing short of a miracle. After three days I was able to put the insulin away. You have to realize I was on 4 injections a day, 20 units before each meal and 90 units before night. Couple days later, I dropped my high blood pressure medication and cut my stomach medication (Losec) to one pill a day. Finally, on the last day of the program I was medication free, a happy and healthy individual. "

" I could not believe my luck. I felt 20 years younger and with long healthy future ahead of me. The program changed my life completely. Today, a month later, I am still medication free. "

This is a miracle God did in my life through the Centre. Thank you so much for helping me to get back my joy and happiness. "
