“I feel awesome, more energetic, lighter and able to embrace life more”

Nancy’s Story
31 pounds and 28 inches in 13 weeks!

“For years I have been trying to lose weight, eating “right” and exercising regularly without success. Last fall, I had a couple of friends who lost significant weight by taking a food sensitivity test and cutting out foods that they were sensitive to. After Googling, “food sensitivity tests in Madison, WI,” the only listing I could find was the Natural Path Health Center. After taking the test through Natural Path and finding out that I was sensitive to a dozen things including all of the refined sugars, I set out to eliminate them from my diet.

At about the same time, I learned of the Optimal Body Balance Program and attended a complimentary webinar on weight loss resistance that Dr. Chad Oler and Sheila Robertson hosted. I loved the fact that they talked about the many ways that people can develop a resistance to weight loss and that the OBB program identifies the root causes that are individual to each person’s body chemistry and history. I knew I needed more than to just give up the foods I was sensitive to. Based on this, I decided to sign up for the program and am so glad I did!!

At the beginning of the program, Sheila and I quickly identified the areas that we were going to work on and set out to make some very positive changes. First of all, I gave up all of my food sensitivities including sugar and made some changes to my eating habits, moving to 4 meals per day, in portions that are nutritionally complete based on my body chemistry. I got off to a fast start and lost 12” and 10 pounds of fat in the first 4 weeks!

Sheila is knowledgeable and really fun to work with and I learned so much from her. She has been really great about making sure I set weekly goals and celebrating and supporting my successes.  As each week progressed, she encouraged me to try new things and expand my food choices.

Throughout the 13-week program, I learned how to make eating and exercising the most effective way a habit. I also have received an incredible education on nutrition and how to reverse weight loss resistance that I can use for the rest of my life. The cooking classes were excellent and, throughout the program,  I learned how to make many tasty new healthy recipes. I also feel awesome, more energetic, lighter and able to embrace life more.

I have now finished the Optimal Body Balance  program and I have lost 31 pounds of fat and 28  inches off my body and down 6 dress sizes. I would recommend the program to anyone who is looking for a new outlook on life, to feel healthier, lighter and more confident!”


“Your Dreams Can Come True”

Mary’s Story
28 pounds with 24 pounds of body fat and 27 inches in 13 weeks!

“First hand, I know how difficult it is to lose weight I am a firm believer in exercise and wanted to encourage women to give themselves that gift.  So about 9 years ago I had taken a job to encourage women to stay healthy, exercise, and eat well.  Ironically, myself in the last 5 years found my own health and waistline falling apart, had food cravings, fatigue, sleepless nights, hot flashes, just to name a few, taking a toll on me.  My physicals came back normal I kept on doing what I needed to do to stay healthy, eat well, and exercise, but still battling the bulge, fatigue and sleep. I was beginning to believe that this is middle age and had to live with it along with a dream of being the size of good health. But your dreams can come true.

You see I was doing the right things but still having issues until a friend referred me to Dr. Chad Oler and Sheila Robertson.  Four words come to mind truly amazing and thank you. Optimal Body Balance was a gift that will always be part of my life. I encourage anyone that is in a rut like I was to try it. I noticed the flavor of food never tasted so good. I am a reborn again “food addict”.

Sheila is so easy to work with and keeps you on track, I have to admit it is not easy to change and the cravings for feel good not so good foods will surface, well we are human and after all grandma’s fresh baked goods want attention but this program helps. Keep with it and in a short time the cravings are held at bay and the good food wins and your taste buds thank you.  Learn why this may be happening to you.

Having a solution to a cause is worth its weight in gold as in my case with the neurotransmitter imbalances, lack of sleep, and insulin resistance restored helped the quality of my life.
I am enjoying a more vibrant, happy, and healthy life.  I have noticed a change in my body and outlook overall as well as others noticing it in me and it feels so good.
In thirteen weeks I feel Grrrreat, sleeping better, fatigue has lessened, no more hot flashes and an added bonus in a loss of 28 lbs with 24 lbs of body fat and 27 inches.

Dream it: Then live it.”
