Sue and I have been taking the same cycling class at our local Athletic Center for a few years. It wasn’t until I overheard someone mentioning to her how they appreciated her daily inspirational and uplifting words on Facebook, that I approached her and asked what they were referring to. We became “friends” on Facebook and I too got to see her daily posts and appreciated her inspirational messages. We continued to chat about our fitness and health goals in general; it was then that she told me all about her nutrition system and its benefits that not only she has experienced over the years, but so have countless others.
I am always looking for ways to improve my health, and although I work out on a very regular basis, I was at a point where age was
catching up to me and I needed to figure out how I could manage my weight, while also enjoying good food and beverages when spending time with family and friends. I started this journey with Sue after Labor Day, 2017. As I had questions, Sue listened to me and provided suggestions that would work for me, based on my personal and work commitments. I soon started feeling better, my sleeping improved and I felt more alert throughout the day. Sue would reach out to me to check in to see how I was doing and always provided positive feedback and encouragement regardless of whether or not I saw success on the scale.
What I appreciate is that Sue understands that we need to live our lives and that tomorrow is a new day to make good choices. Sue has been a great coach throughout the last few months; I continue to appreciate her balanced, yet supportive approach, in helping me achieve my health goals, as well as keeping a positive attitude regardless of the topic or obstacle I’m encountering.
I can remember seeing Sue quite often in the gym. Each time I saw her, I would say to myself, “I wonder what type of meal plan she is on, for the level of activity that she does.” So one day I asked. I am so thankful that I did! She talked to me in depth about the nutritional program she uses, and I could not wait to try it. I have been on the program for almost a year now. I know I am fueling my body with the vitamins and nutrients it needs, in order to help me perform at a higher level, not only during my intense workouts and long distance races, but also for the amazing recovery my body needs. I feel that I am more focused overall as well.
Sue is an amazing coach! She is always readily available, providing new ideas for living a healthier lifestyle. She helps me stay focused on my goals and on track with my nutrition. I am so happy to have Sue as my coach! I would recommend her to anyone who is looking to lose weight, increase their athletic performance or just want to fuel their body with the proper nutrition, to feel better overall.
When I noticed one of my co-workers looking radiant, I inquired. My co-worker took me to a health and wellness event, hosted by Sue Fetterman. I was reluctant to go, but I went. After tasting the shakes and listening to Sue’s commentary, I was hooked. I began my journey and within six months I had lost 20 pounds, dropped two sizes and felt (and looked) phenomenal. I maintained my journey almost through 2012.
Mid-2012 my life collapsed with a divorce, job loss, death of my mother and father, and a back injury all within five months. I was unable to maintain my healthy outlook and returned to the dark side of some old nasty eating habits.
By 2015 my life seemed to stabilize with a new relationship; however, I sold my home and started a new job. My stresses continued and then three of my stepchildren were getting married in 2017. I knew what I needed to do and who I needed see, Sue Fetterman.
Sue was so gracious and offered an invitation to her home to discuss the changes in the program. Sue also knew that I was NOT ready for a full commitment, because I was still learning balance. She WANTED me to know that she is available no matter what my terms were. Sue provided tips to get through the hour, day and week. Her encouragement at every little accomplishment set me on fire. She has coached me with relearning balance to restore my optimum health.
While my journey is slow, it is more meaningful. Sue is an exceptional listener and NOT pushy, which is rare in the health industry. I recently re-joined a gym with Sue’s encouragement –try it! For healthy and realistic coaching, with balance, start your unbelievable journey and consult with Sue.
I started this 28 day Summer Shred program because I had spent the winter rehabing from foot surgery, not working out, and not exactly eating well. I don’t eat terribly but was having a little too much wine every night and snacking all the time; even though I thought what I was eating was healthy stuff. I wanted to try to control my snacking habits, tone up and loose 5 pounds.
28 days later, I have lost 7 pounds (which is a little more than 5 % of my body weight), am back to running an average of 12 miles a week with a few other strength and cardio workouts mixed in, and I can see the difference in the mirror and in my clothes. This program cuts out added sugar, almost all carbs from white flour and other not-so-whole grains, and dairy. The funny thing is…I don’t really miss any of it. I didn’t follow everything to a T, but Sue has great recipes that I will continue to use now that I’m technically done. I learned what type of foods to eat when, and tried some things I had never eaten before- which surprised me because I thought I pretty much ate everything.
I learned a lot about my eating habits: I don’t have to have dessert every night, I can still put my creamer in my coffee (one thing I really had no interest in giving up since I’m pretty sure the reason I get up most mornings is my coffee…) and I can be full without having a “starch” every meal. I have had about 3 slices of regular bread in the past month and if you had told me I wouldn’t care a month ago, I would not have believed you. I also forced myself to be more aware of what I was eating and why- if I was eating just to pick, I went for a carrot or cucumber and hummus rather than a cracker or cheese.
Another thing that I had not anticipated making a difference was the accountability; when you have to tell someone if you followed the plan or not, it adds a level of responsibility. Sue was always encouraging…but I’m a pretty honest person and when I knew I wa going to have to own up to a trail mix fail…it was motivating to redirect my habits for the day.
Overall- I absolutely recommend trying the 28 day Summer Shred plan- what I learned is now part of my routine and I’m not worried about being able to maintain it at all! Thanks so much Sue!
My wife and I just completed our 28 day challenge. I lost a total of 17 pounds and my wife lost 8 pounds. We found this program to be very easy to follow. Our meals were set up for us, just cook and eat.
Personally, I have been following Sue Fetterman on Facebook, she is very inspiring and motivating. I have never gone down this path on choosing such a program. I felt compelled to give Sue’s program a shot and my wife and I are very grateful. I finally understand this is not a diet program, it’s a way of life we hope to lead. Thank you for the inspiration, Sue!
Weight-loss results depicted here should not be construed as typical or average. In a study performed in 2012 by University at Chicago researchers, subjects lost an average of 9 lbs with an average of 1.98 lbs of the loss from visceral fat after 30 days on an Isagenix System. The subjects also had a greater level of adherence and had more consistent weight loss from week to week compared to subjects on a traditional diet. Always consult your GP before making any dietary changes or starting any nutrition, weight-loss or exercise program.
