Client Success Stories

“I’ve now lost over 20 lbs, have high energy levels, stabilized my mood & feel like I’m in the best health of my life at 55!”

“I was referred to Jennifer by my doctor after a diagnosis of allergies to soy, dairy, tomatoes and apples that resulted in very low energy and a 20 lb weight gain.  Not only was I afraid to eat, I didn’t know how to cook!  Jennifer guided me through the process of adding in new delicious foods to my diet and helped me to be comfortable with cooking & eating out safely!!  Her continued support during this dietary transition made it an exciting process wherein I’ve now lost over 20 lbs, have high energy levels, stabilized my mood & feel like I’m in the best health of my life at 55.  Thank you so much, Jen.  I couldn’t have done this without you!”

“Working with Jennifer has been the light at the end of my dark tunnel!”

“For over 6 years, I struggled with celiac disease. When first diagnosed, my doctor basically told me “Good luck with your diet” and sent me on my way. I spent a lot of time completely confused despite reading books and websites and was still unknowingly eating a lot of food that contained gluten.

Working with Jennifer has been the light at the end of my dark tunnel! With her help, I learned how to incorporate healthy whole gluten-free foods into my diet to replace all the unhealthy ones I’d been eating. This meant learning to read food labels and, most importantly, choosing vegetables, fruits, and lean proteins that are best suited for my individual needs. Now I cook more than I ever have in the past and enjoy the challenge of new recipes & cooking methods.

Jennifer Fugo is compassionate, knowledgeable and incredibly sensitive to my individual needs. She communicates and teaches in a way that is understandable… breaking down each step in a brilliant way. Jennifer has truly changed my life and I am so very grateful for her in every way!!”

I lost weight and all the bloating, increased my energy levels, & finally resolved my constipation.”

“When I met with Jennifer, I was preparing for my wedding.  I suffered with lots of bloating and constipation for a long time without any solution in sight.  Though I knew it wasn’t normal to be like that, I didn’t want to resort to medication.  I also didn’t want to kill myself with tons of exercise or constant, crazy dieting.

My coaching experience with Jennifer changed everything!  A new lifestyle began to emerge that required little effort and actually worked simply because we figured out that my issues were connected to a sensitivity to gluten.  Jen taught me how to shift my diet with foods that work well with my body.  I lost weight and all the bloating, increased my energy levels and finally resolved my constipation.  Even my close friends and family have commented that I look leaner and that my mood is exuberant and positive.  The craziest thing was that I actually had to get my wedding dress taken in about 2 inches a few days before the big day!”

“If you are looking for an integrated approach to nutrition, Jennifer is the right fit!”

‘If you are looking for an integrated approach to nutrition, Jennifer is the right fit!  I would highly recommend Jennifer to anyone who is ready to assimilate better eating into their current regimen.

Jennifer came along at the right time and spent time with my partner and I creating an eating plan that fit into our schedules that was not overwhelming. She walked us through step by step, week by week, making sure to check in and offer support.  She shared recipes and anything else to show her commitment to our success. In addition, we got assistance on how to prepare foods to provide the right energy at the right times, whether we are recovering from a workout or preparing a meal mid-week.

I definitely felt the support and encouragement to experiment more in the kitchen, and ‘play’ with our desires to remove dairy and gluten from our diets to see the effects.  Plus, we experimented with and tried more fruits and vegetables than we had in 10 years.  All of our sessions were done in the comfort of our own home using Skype, which could not have been more convenient!’

“Shopping with Jennifer was the best interactive way to accomplish my goal!”

‘I always wanted to learn more nutritional information but wasn’t sure how to go about it in such a way that I could easily understand it without spending hours reading a book. Shopping with Jennifer was the best interactive way to accomplish my goal!

I thoroughly enjoyed my time in the store with Jennifer. We spent time talking about food, its nutritional value, and how to make it. It was so informative! I got the chance to ask a lot of questions, take notes, and most importantly, clarify my own misconceptions about some foods. The best part about it for me was that we spent time in some of the food sections that I would have normally passed by because I didn’t know enough about that type of food or out of fear of not knowing how to cook it! Jennifer’s positive attitude and knowledge has put all of those negative ideas out of my head. I even bought some of these types of foods on my very next trip to the store!’

~ Tricia, Mother, Plymouth Meeting PA

“I have clarity in the direction of my life…and [have] awareness of my body’s response to food…”

“I began my coaching program after having just been laid off from a job that I hated.  I had no direction or clue as to what I should do next and felt overwhelmed and paralyzed.  I also suffered with a lot of digestive discomfort and felt lost as to what I should be eating.

Now I have clarity of direction in my life and am following my passion for photography and travel.  Jennifer helped me to see beyond the distractions and life disappointments that kept me feeling stuck.  As for my diet, Jennifer helped me to develop awareness of my body’s response to particular foods and taught me about foods that would work with my body.  I really appreciate Jennifer’s gift for helping people like myself get to the root of a problem, be it diet, career or just life in general.  Any time that I feel I’m getting off track, Jen is there to remind me of how to live and eat.  Working with her has been a positive and wonderful experience!”

~ Dan, Photographer & Road Cyclist, Lansdale PA

“I developed a new way of eating and [Jennifer] was able to guide me to new foods and strategies so I never felt deprived or desperate.

“Before working with Jennifer, I ate out most of the time, worked a tremendous amount of hours, slept only 3 to 4 hours per night and rarely ate breakfast.  Needless to say, my life and diet was out of balance and I felt exhausted and impatient all the time.

Not only did I achieve my goals around weight-loss with Jennifer, but I found myself sleeping better, eating better, cooking more and ready to make some crucial life decisions.  It was through Jennifer’s coaching that I discovered that I was gluten-sensitive.  Once I eliminated the gluten from my diet I found I could think more clearly and creatively.  I felt less stressed and even my skin and hair changed for the better!  Jennifer’s knowledge about food sensitivities came in handy as I developed a new way of eating and she was able to guide me to new foods and strategies so I never felt deprived or desperate.  In summary, I am a different, better, healthier person for having worked with Jennifer.”

~ Cindy, Health & CrossFit Coach, Wayne PA

“Jennifer has helped me on my path to becoming a healthier person far beyond my eating habits…I recommend every person looking for change speak to [her].  She will change your life.”

“Jennifer has helped me on my path to becoming a healthier person far beyond my eating habits, though I must admit there have been significant improvements in that department, as well. She has created a new hunger in me, one that grows stronger each time we speak. What started as a new way of looking at food grew into my finding a voice and passion in life that was hidden behind excuses and fear. By showing me that I was in control of my destiny, and that small changes add up, I’ve found the courage to construct my life on my terms. As Emerson wrote, “Sow a thought and you reap an action; sow an act and you reap a habit; sow a habit and you reap a character; sow a character and you reap a destiny.” Jennifer made me truly understand the significance of that statement, and I am living the life I thought I could never achieve. I recommend every person looking for change speak to Jennifer Fugo. She will change your life.”

~ Anne, Senior Marketing Exec, Chicago IL

“I lost weight, understand the importance of reading labels and learned to cook…”

“I was eating a lot of processed and fast food before I started working with Jennifer.  We slowly introduced new whole foods into my diet over the course of three months.  Not only did I use the recipes that Jennifer provided, but she also taught me how to effectively search the internet for other good meal ideas.  Jennifer even motivated me to go food shopping and join my wife in the kitchen to cook.  I lost weight, understand the importance of reading labels and learned to cook more effectively in order to accommodate my busy life between work and my kids.”

~ Kevin, Firefighter & Cyclist, Bethlehem PA

“I was able to eliminate coffee (never would have believed that) and diet sodas.”

“Jennifer’s knowledge and holistic approach impressed me and during the time she counseled me I learned a lot about what to eat and what not to eat. I was able to eliminate coffee (never would have believed that) and diet sodas.  One advantage of dropping the coffee and sodas was the commentary from my family about how much more relaxed they felt I was.  I am eating much better and thank Jennifer for her help.  I felt she was well schooled, very accessible and passionate about helping her clients. I can recommend her whole-heartedly.”

~ Bruce, Business Consultant & Triathlete, CT

“[Jennifer] is wonderful, very supportive, and has a great way of building a positive outlook…”

“I found the grocery shopping trip to be extremely vital to jump-starting my gluten and sugar free diet.  Jennifer took me on an aisle by aisle tour of the market and was very thorough in explaining what foods possess the most nutrition and why.

Before going to the market, I was a bit nervous and skeptical.  I thought that I would have to eat foods that I do not like, but it was the exact opposite.  Jennifer asked what foods I liked and built on that foundation.  She is wonderful, very supportive, and has a great way of building a positive outlook while raising your confidence to believe that this is more than a diet, it is a lifestyle.”

~ Curin, Bank Manager, Collegeville PA

“Turn off the cooking shows and work with Jennifer- you’ll enjoy every bite!!”

“Believe me, you NEED to have Jennifer come to your home and cook with you!! What you will experience is first FUN, second DELICIOUS, and third EDUCATIONAL!!

Until yesterday I never cooked with someone who provided unconditional acceptance for my tastes, my skills (really lack of!!) and kitchen supplies. There were no full color glossy photos to live up to, no time limits that you ‘should be able to make this in.’ I learned tricks to quickly and safely prep food to be cooked as well as how to improvise when we were missing an ingredient. Jennifer is simply amazing. Her calm and patience permeated the kitchen right there with the smell of the garlic (which we both LOVE!!). I truly feel like I can create some good meals for my family, which will provide enough left overs for my lunches as well as learning about how to cook and then mix and match options. Turn off the cooking shows and work with Jennifer, you will enjoy every bite!!”
