Case Study #1
A determined 47-year old systems engineer was eager to get healthier and lose weight so she could build her self-confidence and feel more comfortable in social settings. T.L. had been hiding out and was stuck in a vicious cycle of anxiety, food cravings, & emotional eating that left her feeling out of control & constantly disappointing herself. In less than four weeks she identified and resolved what was triggering her emotional eating and went down one dress size. In under 2 months she decreased her knee pain, went from being able to do 3 squats to doing 70, uncovered what was causing her irritable bowel symptoms, and greatly improved her relationship with her spouse. Half way through the program she had lost 12 pounds and had even inspired her mom to start taking better care of herself too (who also lost 7 lbs). By the end of the program T.L. had lost 30 lbs, decreased her waist by 5 inches, was wearing clothes 3 sizes smaller, went down one shoe size, improved her lab work, and resolved all of the following: her knee pain, cravings, emotional eating, insomnia, mood swings, and anxiety. She also significantly improved her relationships with her mom and spouse, became more socially comfortable and active, and even became a weight loss coach at her work! Bravo!
“This is the first time I ever made me a priority. [Karin] made it so much easier to make this transition. I feel like it’s over, there’s no reason to hide. I feel proud of myself, I don’t feel out of control anymore, and I have control over things. I’m more confident in my own skin and I learn something new every time we meet….a huge weight was lifted.”

A 39-year-old salon owner and mother of two had battled with digestive issues, cravings, her relationship with the scale, and migraines for far too long. When she signed up for the 90-day Signature Transformation program she took the batteries out of the scale and trusted the process. To her delight, she started to see results within just a few weeks. Though she had concerns about not feeling fulfilled during the program, she absolutely was. In fact she easily adopted new strategies and we witnessed her amazing transformation into a healthier, more confident, and happier life in just 3 months. Renee didn’t just learn how to lose weight; she learned how to cultivate a healthy lifestyle that was enjoyable for her and her family.
“I have done weight watchers, counting endless calories, and nothing has ever worked. No one has taught me what I really wanted and needed . . . How to eat and eat right! I am an Italian and until Karin I never realized how my life was surrounded by food emotionally and physically. My life changed when I started meeting with Karin. I became healthy. No more bloating, no more shakes from low blood sugar, and most of all migraine free (I would suffer from migraines 2x a week) . . . I’m down 4 jean sizes and mentally and physically fulfilled. I was finally listened too and taught how not to live life around food! This wasn’t a weight-loss program. This was a life-changing program!Thank you Karin.”Renee Emanuele

“When I first contacted Karin my daughter was 4 months old. I was the heaviest I had ever been and the weight (although I am breastfeeding) was just not coming off. Karin has taught me some tricks I have found very useful in not only losing weight but infeeling better and having more energy. I fear my daughter will grow up with an overweight mom and I want her to be proud of me, as I want to be an example to her.
“After my diagnosis with Type 2 Diabetes I went searching for an alternative solution to the prescription my doctor put me on. I’ve never taken medications but I also did’t want to experience the negative outcomes that diabetes can bring as I’ve seen what it’s done to others in my family.
After doing Karin’s program I lost 10lbs and went down 2 pant sizes. At the end of the program I saw my doctor and got my labs checked. He was amazed at my vitals and by the numbers on my blood work— everything was NORMAL! I couldn’t have done this without Karin’s help.”Rob
“I’ve been the beneficiary of Karin’s awesome energy and coaching persona – I love how Karin’s tone and calm voice creates a nourishing space! She is amazing at inviting such a delicious comfortable energy!”Diane
“I was nervous and pessimistic at first about being too broken to be fixed. Struggling with emotional issues as well as physical issues, I was able to work with Karin to get rein-tune with my body and mind. I am able to say I have made significant progress with myself, becoming more confident in myself and decisions. As well as controlling cravings, understanding what foods make me feel negative, and stabilizing blood sugar swings. . . I was able to shift my perspective on negative self thoughts and build solid a foundation to continue to achieve all my personal goals. You can’t expect significant change to occur over night, but if you give faith in Karin and yourself, over time you will experience great personal shifts. I am very thankful for Karin and the work we’ve done!”J.R.
“I have not slept this well in years! For a long time I had a terrible time falling asleep and would also wake in the night and not be able to fall back to sleep. A week into this program and I started sleeping like a baby, and it felt so good! And my energy has been terrific.
I used to crash mid-day and would grab a soda but it doesn’t even cross my mind anymore. I feel so much more alert and on task at work and my co-workers have even commented on how I seem ‘sharper’ lately. The rest of my office is still getting by with caffeine and sugar. I told them they’ve got to do this!“Kelley R.
“After doing this program I totally see how my diet and my lifestyle were the source of my sleep & energy problems. I relied on sugar, caffeine, and alcohol to get me through each day and could never break free of them. Thanks to this program I feel like I’ve been given a fresh start. I feel great and my skin looks so much better!”Elizabeth

She has a positive and warm manner.
Thank you Karin for helping me”Christene Loweth
“After several attempts with other people and nothing changed, I started working with Karin and then everything changed. I didn’t know it but I was holding on to a lot of anger. When Karin helped me realize what I was angry about I was able to set it free. I stopped taking on other people’s pain and stopped blaming myself. Halfway through my sessions, I started to find peace. And by the end of my program I felt reborn and so much more relaxed. I will be forever grateful. Thank you Karin, your coaching was truly powerful.”Vicki Angelos
“Karin worked with me in a very thorough and understanding way – she listened carefully and helped me gain clarity so I could look at my health difficulties from a variety of angles.
Her coaching enabled me to come up with a plan to tackle a specific health issue I was faced with and improve my overall attitude about how to best take care of myself. She approaches symptoms from a functional / holistic viewpoint and has extensive background knowledge about the role of nutrition, exercise, and a whole-body picture.”Suzanne
“I have learned a lot about myself the past few weeks, especially with regard to my digestion. I am much more conscious about what I put into my body.
And I am happy to report that I an almost symptom free from my digestive woes. Before I often would chose to stay home for fear that I would get sick and it was just to embarrassing, now I’m no longer living in fear because I know now what’s been causing the majority of my gut problems.”Dee
“This was absolutely amazing!!! Karin knows her stuff and is so professional. I didn’t have time for the program but I made time and I loved it! Karin is the real deal and I highly recommend her program.”Trisha
“I recently just completed an elimination diet with the help and guidance of Karin Franz. I found the elimination diet a real eye opener for me. Through the re-introduction of foods in a controlled manner I really learnt what foods did affect me. I really feel like I connected in with my body, learning how and what I eat are important as well as my state of mind when eating. Karin was a great help in supporting me through the challenging times and gave me some wonderful words of wisdom. Thank you Karin.
I would most certainly recommend this diet to people if you feel things are just not right with you. It’s not that hard really. It’s a change of mind-set. At the same time, it can become fun as you learn to cook differently and develop new tastes for amazing food.”F. Ni Mhairtin
