“In May of 2015, with the encouragement of my friend Dan, I set an appointment, actually kept it, and met with Cathryn Marshall. Over the past 10
Since that first day, I’ve met with Cathryn once a week, getting nutrition advice, following the Simple Fat Burn plan, keeping and reviewing my food log, and exercising regularly.
Now it’s 1 year and 5 months later and I’ve lost 200 lbs! I feel great and I’m back playing tennis, riding dirt bikes, and enjoying an active life with my family.
People are always asking me ‘How did you do it?’ I tell them its simple – (not always easy or convenient but simple). Follow the plan, keep your food log, make minor adjustments, and trust the process!”Chuck Grennor
Like many others I subscribed to the concept of ‘burn more calories than you take in’ when it comes to weight management. Cathryn helped me to understand that it also mattered what the calories consisted of and that you must eat differently to lose weight. Over time we adjusted my diet adding and subtracting carbs, protein and sodium until we found the right balance. I learned to eat fish. A lot of fish! We also adjusted my workouts. Cathryn helped me to understand that I did not need to work out for hours in order to be healthy.
Cathryn may be the most positive person I’ve ever met. She would greet me at every workout with a smile and a ‘what are we working today?’ When I would get frustrated she was quick to give me encouragement and the assurance that we were on the right track. She was right. By the time we were done, I had lost 88lbs and dropped my body fat to 18%. Now I’m off on my own but with the knowledge that I gained from Cathryn I’m able to adjust my diet myself as I need to. Thanks Cathryn!!” Tracey McFarland
I always believed my body “liked” a certain weight or that I couldn’t get below “x” pounds. I had become a woman with curves after high school and I truly believed my frame had changed.
Well, it was all bullsh*t! I was lying to myself and now I know it is true. For all of you who have said, “I didn’t think you had 30 pounds to lose” look at this photo from October 21, 2012. This is around the time I decided to start working out with a trainer again and lost 10 pounds in a year. A YEAR! And I thought I was doing well.
I started training/maintaining a food log with Cathryn Marshall in June and had 30 pounds off in ~90 days. I was SUPER strict with my eating and only worked out twice a week. While I never believed the nutrition mattered, now I am convinced. You can never out-exercise your diet.
Much love to you all and please reach out if you have any questions. I am happy to talk to you about my journey. Leah Yzerman Kruszka
