She had a hectic corporate career and learned the hard way how stress and not eating enough nutritious foods can have a serious impact on your health. Read more
Coming into Colleen's RESTART program, I had never taken part in a formal diet before in my life. ... Upon meeting Colleen, and seeing the genuine passion she has for nutrition, and for improving the lives of her clients, I knew I had made the right choice. In the 5 video classes we had, I was never bored, and always fully engaged.Original recommendation
... Colleen is a truly amazing, passionate, knowledgeable, and genuinely cares about helping her clients live better healthy lives, and I cannot thank her enough for that. It was a joy and a privilege to take this course, and when I begin to falter in my new found love of healthy foods, I will come right back to the source and take this program again to reset, learn something new, and get back on the right track."

... I quickly found out that I had a lot to learn. Colleen adeptly led us through the program, explaining, answering questions, relating personal experience, and inspiring. I found out that foods that I hadn't regularly included as part of my daily diet were encouraged in the Restart regime (yum!), while others that I thought to be good, and was eating too much of, needed to be avoided in the detox, and very much reduced afterward. Colleen explained the why and we reaped the reward of a healthy body, feeling good, and loosing weight! ...Original recommendation
I love the Restart plan and I love Colleen's tutelage and caring!
I just completed the Restart program and am very excited about what I have learned and accomplished.Original recommendation
Colleen is a very well informed, caring leader and teacher. She helped me understand so much about how food affects my body. I love her expression, "Eat mindfully". I'm trying very hard to do that.
... I recommend this class to anyone who is interested in healthy living and in enhancing your well being!
I am a woman in my 60s and have learned that it's never too late to change and better myself!!

I participated in the RESTART program through Nutritional Zest and can't say enough good things about it. I learned more about nutrition and my body and how best to fuel it with healthy foods. Colleen is knowledgeable, motivating, authentic, and sincere. Having a network of support through our group calls and Facebook group was an added bonus. And I still reference my materials often! It wasn't hard to stick to the program (which says a lot, coming from me) and I felt the best I've felt in a long time.Original recommendation

I learned about Colleen's RESTART program and decided to give it a try. I figured, why not, I was trying to lose weight anyway and this couldn't hurt.Original recommendation
Well, what I got from the program was so much more than I thought going into it. First of all, Colleen facilitated a supportive 5-week journey for me and the other participants. We learned all about digestion, what sugar and fats do in your body, and were hand-held through a 3-week sugar detox. ...
Colleen provided a lot of options and resources to make this a breeze. My family even enjoyed a lot of the things I made.
I whole-heartedly recommend this program and Nutritional Zest to anyone looking to improve their life.
