Mara and I started talking around the middle of November 2013 after becoming friends through a mutual friend a few months earlier. She saw a post of mine on Facebook about protein shakes and offered me some advice on their benefits and ideas for what kinds to make. She definitely knows her stuff! She made me feel so comfortable and left herself open to any and all questions which was wonderful since I knew very little about proper nutrition. After a couple of weeks of advice on protein shakes and workout recovery, she offered to help determine how many calories I really needed. This offer was a Godsend because I was really struggling to lose weight and just not happy. Mara figured how many calories I should really be having and it was surprisingly several hundred more than what I had been aiming for. She explained why I needed this number of calories in a great way that made me really understand the science of my body. I stuck with this number for a couple of weeks and had great success! Needless to say, Mara has been my nutritional guide ever since then! She has been so amazing to work with and I am beyond thankful she has been willing to guide and teach me about food and nutrition! She has taught me what nutrients to focus on and what I should be eating to get there. Because of Mara, I feel like I am so much more knowledgable about food and what I need to be putting into my body. I am even now being asked for advice on what to eat and feel I can help teach other people which I NEVER though I would be able to do! Mara is AMAZING and is so wonderful to work with! She knows and understands nutrition and exercise and helps people who know nothing about them understand them as well. She is gentle, yet firm with her advice and motivation. I am forever grateful for Mara and what she has done for me!
