When I first found out I had diabetes, I did not know anything about what I should and should not eat.  I went to see Marisa J. Kruss RD LD/N, and she helped me to learn what I needed to know.   She was friendly and truly seemed to care about me.   I was going through a really rough time in my personal life, and she seemed to really understand and care about what was going on with me.  With Marisa’s help, I was able to lose over 75 pounds in about a year and got my diabetes well in control.  She strongly encouraged me to exercise so I started walking 20 minutes a day and did a little more each week.   It impressed me that, with my authorization, Marisa kept my doctor informed as to my progress.  My labs improved significantly and my doctor lowered the dosage of my glucotrol to the point now that I barely need it.  I whole-heartedly recommend Marisa to anyone who needs help with their diabetes.

I went to see Marisa J. Kruss, RD LD/N as I was suffering from IBS and severe bloating. Marisa immediately put me at ease with her relaxed but professional approach and I felt that she wouldn't ask me to make any changes I couldn't maintain.  Within just a few weeks of following her dietary recommendations, I felt so much better with much more energy.  Through testing, she was able to identify a gut parasite, blastocystis hominis, along with adrenal imbalances which were the root of the symptoms.  Marisa started me on a supplement protocol to get rid of the parasite and correct the adrenal imbalances.  I now rarely feel bloated and my IBS symptoms have greatly improved and continue to improve.  I can't imagine going back to my old ways of eating.

Before speaking with Marisa, I was skeptical about whether a nutritionist could be of much help to me. I thought I had a pretty good understanding of what food was good and bad for me.   I had tried controlling my eating habits in the past without any long term success, so I decided to get some help.  After a very thorough and individualized analysis, Marisa pinpointed specific changes I needed to make and outlined an eating strategy that made sense and seemed realistic to follow.  I started six months ago, saw instant results, and have kept my weight where I want it ever since.  I feel better about myself and the way my body looks and feels.  I have more energy and handle stress much better.  Having Marisa J. Kruss as my nutritionist has changed my life.

My weight has always been a problem for me.  I have been a yo-yo dieter all my life.  I’ve gone through weight watchers, nutrisystem, the grapefruit diet, the cabbage soup diet, and even psychological diets where they make you smell putrid scents to make you reject certain foods that you crave, and all other diets that have been on the news, in the magazines, and on Oprah— without attaining positive results.  Even though I have suffered for years with severe knee and foot pain brought on by my extra weight, I always wanted to continue eating everything I liked, especially bread and sweets.

There comes a time when you have to make a decision about what type of life you want to live, hoping it is not too late to achieve a high quality of life and to have better health.  I asked Marisa to help me take the steps to a better life.  I finally have received the help and the encouragement that I needed.  Marisa J. Kruss created a personalized diet that has aided me to change my eating habits.   Through good nutrition and special vitamins, I’m losing weight and regaining the energy I was lacking.  I have lost 30 pounds even though I have not exercised much as she has urged me to.  I now sleep better, fit into my “skinny” clothes and have a spring in my step.  Thank you, Marisa, for giving me back hope for better and healthier years.
