Nutritionally Fit Testimonials
“I was diagnosed as pre-diabetic, and went to see Wendy to help me lose weight and get my blood sugar down. Her approach was easy to understand and implement, and I was amazed at how quickly the pounds came off. Within 6 months, I had lost 45 pounds. Even better, she helped me to transform the way I think about eating. Now, almost two years after I began seeing her, my weight has stayed off and my blood sugar is way down. I am no longer pre-diabetic, and am healthier than I have been in decades. Most importantly, I have a new, healthy approach to eating, drinking, and exercise—one that I am confident will stay with me for the rest of my life. Wendy’s patient, supportive and intelligent program made a huge difference in my life.”

“I was a patient of yours 4 or 5 years ago. I was big time underweight from breastfeeding/running too much/not fueling my body properly. I had amenorrhea post 2 healthy pregnancies, so our goal was to get me to a healthy weight in the hopes my fertility would return. I just wanted to let you know that with your suggestions, I did gain about 10 lbs! It took me a few years to have the weight really stick, and also really detach from any old eating habits of eating too little. My period also didn’t return even with the weight gain, so I finally had an exploratory surgery of my uterus to check it out, and was told my uterus looked like a post-menopausal woman, and my cycle would very likely never return. Ups and downs over the last 2 years have been managing early onset osteoporosis (brought on primarily by Celiac disease which left me severely malnourished when younger, but made worse by amenorrhea), and trying various hormone therapies. Finally, this last year I slowed down a lot, still exercising, but running just once a week, and mostly doing slower strength exercises like barre class or Pilates, and I feel the strongest I’ve ever felt and my period finally returned! I just wanted to update you because your strategies & guidelines for making sure I’m eating enough as a busy mom on the go have stuck with me. I still pack my lunches ahead most days to make sure I’m not going long without food, and I make sure I get enough fat and protein each day.
Your strategies definitely helped me get my health back on track, and my nutrition is probably the best it’s ever been, and I know my body is the strongest it’s ever been. I just wanted to write a note to say thank you for your support at a time that I really needed it, and to let you know that you may not have seen the end result we hoped for at the time, we got it!
I hope you are well, and thank you very much!”
“I’ve been working with Wendy for almost 3 years and she and her staff have truly changed my life. She has taught me how to eat properly and how to make the right choices with ongoing encouragement.

“I had been trying to lose 30 lbs for over 10 years. Wendy showed me what I was doing wrong and developed a nutrition plan for me based on foods I like and my schedule. Today, I’ve kept the weight off for two years, my cholesterol is way down and I’m almost never hungry. Thanks Wendy!” – Bill S., Pasadena, CA
“About five years ago, my physician referred me to Wendy Crump for help with weight loss. I had tried many different ways to lose weight without much success. Wendy immediately developed a customized eating plan for me. She also encouraged me to begin an exercise program. Because I was recovering from a broken foot, I was not confident about exercising. Wendy referred me to a physical therapist for a few weeks of supervised exercise (“exercising training”). I then joined a gym and for 5 years now, I’ve exercised at the gym for 1 ½ hours three times per week. On the off days, I walk or do a 30-minute treadmill. I have lost about 30 lbs and kept it off. In the meantime, I’ve developed (with Wendy’s help) an entirely new lifestyle. Wendy has encouraged me all the time. Even when issues of medication interfered with weight loss, Wendy was able to not only give me insight about the way my body was working, but she gave me dietary modifications to help mediate the different issues. I have been the healthiest these 5 years of any time in my life. All my medical test results are the best ever. I feel great! Most of all I appreciate Wendy’s kind, encouraging, and patient attention to my health issues. She’s the best! I recommend her without reservation.

I lost 73 pounds, and I feel wonderful! For the first time ever I feel comfortable and beautiful in my own skin. I can do things that I could not have done when I was overweight. I look forward to P.E. class, I can go shopping and try on clothes, and I feel confident in a bathing suit. Kids on the Run has truly changed my life!

I have suffered from intestinal cramping, gas and diarrhea for 15 years. I have seen multiple gastroenterologists and had numerous tests, all coming back negative. I always plan my daily activities around the nearest bathroom, which I would visit 3-6 times a day. Since I started the LEAP program no more mad dashes to the restroom. I highly recommend the LEAP diet for anyone who has suffered as much as I had before starting the diet.

For several years before seeing Wendy I was plagued with chronic migraine headaches, leaving me depilated for days after an onset. I was convinced everything I ate triggered a migraine; therefore I omitted all dairy, soy, animal protein, fruits, gluten, sugar and caffeine, leaving me only a few foods to choose from. I was always exhausted, fatigued and had little to no energy at all. I knew I needed to seek professional help and that’s when I contacted Wendy. Wendy suggested I take the MRT test to test for food sensitivities. I am so thankful for her guidance, following the LEAP diet has changed my life. I now eat a well balanced diet, have lots of energy and no longer experience frequent migraine headaches.
For years I had rashes on my face and arms. I was seeing a dermatologist on a regular basis, who treated me with cortisone cream, shots and recommended I take zyrtec daily. The rashes never went away and I was desperate to find a cure. I contacted Wendy and she recommended I take the MRT test, skeptical at first but determined to put an end to my unsightly rashes. I have been following the LEAP diet for 9 months and now rash free. I am off cortisone cream, shots and zyrtec. I have my life back and can’t thank Wendy enough for suggesting I follow the LEAP diet.
