“Ray and Julieanna didn’t write a fad diet book. It’s about making a permanent lifestyle transformation. The magic is I still can eat anything I want. The trick is what I want has profoundly changed. They did the trick for me and saved my life, now let them help you.”
“Working with Julieanna and Ray has given me a profoundly new understanding of how food impacts health and how what we eat is often dictated by social influences. I’m excited to be a part of their effort to push to this message out to a far bigger audience.”
“Ray is a scientific visionary and Julieanna is a master of nutrition. Together they’ve written a fact-based recipe book for longevity that belongs in every kitchen. Buy it.”
“Julieanna and Ray are an incredible team. While others have sought to demonstrate the adequacy of an exclusively plant-sourced diet, they teach how it can be superior and mimics longevity research.”
“My whole life I believed was destined to be heavy. I told myself it was genetic, my broken metabolism, anything but my lifestyle. The breaking point for me was realizing the amount of mental energy I spent every day beating myself up for feeling like a failure. It was taking a toll on me. Then Ray and Julienna stepped in and helped me drop over 70 pounds and start a new way of life. They showed me how to be a better me. I’m embracing a healthier, happier future. The journey has been incredible and I feel so good that I never want it to end”
“Ray and Julieanna coached me to lose 150 lbs in just eight months. I went from being morbidly obese and on high blood pressure meds to physically thriving and eating an amazing array of delicious foods. This was truly THE solution for me!”
“Ray and Julieanna are bright, encouraging, and no nonsense. Their approach to health and weight loss is matter of fact and a sure thing. While working with them I quickly lost weight and learned a lot about my relationship with food in the process. I am set up for success in the future. I will forever cherish the time that spent learning from this dynamic pair!”
“My transformation really wasn’t just about weight loss – that was an added benefit. I feel better, run faster, think about food less, and have created lifelong habits that set me up for success. I learned so much working with Ray and Julieanna. Fueling to live and train rather than training to eat really changes your mind, body, and performance. A year ago I certainly wasn’t a world ranked triathlete – OR a size 2!”
“Ray and Julieanna guided me through a lifestyle transformation program. Not only did I lost 75 pounds going from being obese to a healthy weight, my whole life improved. I learned how to navigate my grocery store and discover new greens, vegetables, grains, and more that I now love.”
