Group Programs Testimonials

Read what so many of my clients have to say about their journey whether it is virtually, in-person; as a private client or in a group. 

I really can’t thank you enough for changing the way I view and consume food and drink. In the last 28 days, which seemed to go by so quickly and easily, I have lost 20 pounds, increased my 

energy significantly, and developed a very healthy respect for how I want to fashion my lifestyle going forward. During the entire period, I abstained from coffee (otherwise three to four cups per day), alcohol (usually three glasses of wine per day), chocolate (usually one small bag per day), breads, pasta, red meat, processed foods, and all forms of sugar (other than the natural form in fresh fruit, like apples). Never once did I find myself having cravings. I credit a great deal of that willpower to your daily e-mails and the journaling process that provided me with a daily impetus. From the bottom of my now much stronger heart, thank you! —Michael Crystal, Wilton, CT

UPDATE: After one year of continuing my new, healthy lifestyle, I’m completely off cholesterol medication. Thank you again!

UPDATE: Had my annual 2017 physical today: in 2015 (before you) I weighed 202. In 2016 (after you) I weighed 162. Today (still with you) I 

weighed 164 and all of my vitals are great!!! Can never thank you enough!

UPDATE: I went back for a 4th detox and I’m so glad I did.  The numbers that were supposed to go down went down, in some cases significantly, and those that were supposed to go up went up – I feel great!  And it’s noticeable, and not just in how my clothes fit – my Krav trainer has commented on my being more agile; my Y trainer has noticed that my strength and endurance has improved, and my family is thrilled that I’m doing what I’ve done to improve my health. I’m a foody and an oenophile – yet I did it with no hesitation and quite honestly, no problems whatsoever.  So, if you’re looking to improve your health, AND create a sustainable better lifestyle, talk to Loryn.

I was feeling depressed, tired all the time, my skin was a mess, I hated looking in the mirror, I was bloated and heavier than I had ever been.  I would power through bags of Reece’s peanut butter like it was a race to stuff as much food in my system as possible It was a vicious cycle of shame. I started feeling and looking better within the first week of doing the private CLEANSE & DETOX program. I have lost over 31 lbs so far, reduced my body fat by 11%, increased muscle mass and lowered my BMI 5.5 points! I have so much more energy, my brain fog has lifted, I love how strong I feel and I am functioning so much better all around.  I need far less 

sleep and the sleep that I do get is so much better. Your program is very simple to follow – but even more is the way that you support learning how to take care of my body and mind in a healthful, realistic way. 6 months later, I am continuing to eat healthy and be mindful of what works.  I also still have a least one shake a day because they are such a yummy quick way to get all my nutrients in. The program is simple to follow and the continued RESULTS keep me motivated!

Words can barely express our gratitude to Loryn.  Our journey has been exhilarating and life-altering – it has had a profound positive impact on the quality of our lives and therefore also our young daughters’ lives. In the 6 months since starting the 28 DAY CLEANSE & DETOX PROGRAM, we have lost 112 pounds between the two of us. We’re seeing amazing results in how we look, in blood test results and in our energy levels and confidence. After having such great success with that program, we continued with the 6 week RESTYLE YOUR LIFESTYLE program, and then the 4 week BEYOND THE BASICS classes. We have completely changed our relationship with food and we’ve learned how to make the right choices – we no longer eat for the sake of eating, and we simply do not feel deprived. Brad was exercising with a trainer for 2 years without seeing any weight loss – but once we changed our nutritional habits

under Loryn’s guidance, the pounds started melting off and exercise really became an accelerator for weight loss. Within this 4 month period, Brad’s triglycerides are down 80%, total cholesterol down 25% and HDL (good cholesterol) up 25%. Our success is a testament to Loryn’s approach and to her sincere thoughtfulness in how she works with each individual in her classes.  She has taught us how to make those lifestyle changes in a way that will be truly permanent for the rest of our lives. Thank you, Loryn, from the bottom of our hearts! – Caroline and Brad, Wilton, CT

I took the RESTYLE YOUR LIFESTYLE 6 week program with Loryn and was blown away by my results. Prior to Loryn, I had hit an all time high weight after 4 years of college and a transition to a 9 – 5 work life. At almost 180 pounds, I was the heaviest I had ever been and knew I needed to make a change. My sister had just completed Loryn’s class and recommended it to me since she knew what I was looking for. I can’t thank Loryn enough for this program and what it did for me. I lost 12 pounds, gained muscle mass, and most importantly, gained knowledge. I’m 25 and for the first time in my life I feel like I have control over my body. Not only did Loryn teach me what being “healthy” means but I can live my life understanding how and what food does to my body. I feel like I can have a treat and maintain my weight, lose weight to get back on track, or reach a new goal if I want to. You truly feel like you have a personalized program designed just for you and your lifestyle! Honestly, this was just another huge step in my journey and I would recommend this class to anyone regardless of where you are. Thank you, Loryn! —Elizabeth Sfondrini, CT

I decided to do the Virtual 28-Day Cleanse & Detox Workshop to get me back on track with my eating habits and health.  Being home during the pandemic I found myself snacking on cookies and candy throughout the day.  This is the fourth detox I have done with Loryn and it was once again a great experience.  I have learned that food is meant solely to nourish and fuel the body. With that in mind I can make better choices.  I am feeling good, my brain fog is gone, I have good energy throughout the day, have been sleeping very well and I feel rested.  I surpassed my weight goal and lost 13 lbs!  Now that I feel good I want to get back into running.  The detox has put me in a good place and mindset to go out and accomplish my fitness goals. Thanks so much. – Jen V., Wilton CT

My goal coming into the RESTYLE YOUR LIFESTYLE class was simple; lose weight. I realized after the first week that this was simplistic and that my life goal is to get healthy and stay healthy. My mother died from complications of diabetes. Restyling my approach to a healthy lifestyle will keep me from suffering the same fate and give me energy to lead a fulfilling life. I learned a lot of the science behind how our bodies function the way they do and how to keep them running optimally. After 6 weeks I’m committed to continue this process. I may have setbacks but I have the tools to make course corrections along this journey.

– Vaneese Thomas, Westchester, NY

I walked into Loryn’s office — a tired, stressed out, over-fat, single, professional and Mom ready to make a new start. I have since participated in Loryn’s Restyle Your Lifestyle and 28 Day Cleanse & Detox programs. My transformation has taken so many forms.  It’s not just that I am slimmer (even my shoe size shrunk!), but I’ve learned so much on my journey. Before the programs, I really thought I KNEW a lot about healthy eating. But my body isn’t the same as it was just a few years ago. I was a train wreck on the brink of type II diabetes but didn’t know it at the time. Loryn imparted a wealth of current, accurate information with a very practical and personable approach. I replaced a slew of bad eating habits I didn’t know I had with healthy routines that I don't think twice

about and are now ingrained in my lifestyle. Without dieting, I’ve replaced close to 50 pounds of extra flesh with an abundance of energy and continually impress myself with what I can accomplish just in a day. I practice mindfulness when selecting and enjoying the foods that I do eat. I sleep better, and, as a result I have a sharper focus and clearer mind.  I perform better professionally, and am more efficient.  I am less stressed, and am happier — more confident.  Most important of all, I am a better Mom to a beautiful 8 year old that can now lock her legs around my waist when I carry her. Walking into Loryn’s office on that fateful day in October changed my world.  I fully intend to continue my journey with Loryn because it’s not a quick-fix program, it’s a lifestyle choice. Thank you Loryn! – Debra Hopke, Ridgefield CT

I was ready. I couldn’t stand to gain another pound and go into yet a bigger size. I looked at myself in the mirror getting bigger and bigger and bigger. I was starting to hide from people who hadn’t seen me in a while, and had a physical where the doctor told me I was borderline diabetic. That did it. I came to the 28-DAY CLEANSE & DETOX unsure if I could do it, but bit by bit the pounds started coming off, I had more energy, and I could cross my legs and bend down! My husband loves my new body; my kids say I’m much happier, and I feel amazing! I have been shoveling our driveway which I could not have done before. Loryn, thank you for changing my life. —Debbie Curcio, Norwalk, CT

I took the RESTYLE YOUR LIFESTYLE class with Loryn through Wilton Continuing Education. My intention was to improve my eating habits in order to feel better, have more energy, and improve my quality of life. I also wanted to gain some knowledge about weight management issues at all stages of life that I could pass on to my patients. Loryn imparted far more information than I anticipated in an organized, logical, and concise manner. She was willing to provide personalized support necessary for those with additional needs. Anyone who wants to eat in a more natural, healthy manner to improve health and well-being, increase longevity, and prevent disease would benefit from Loryn’s knowledge. I would highly recommend her courses or one-on-one counseling to those who look to improve their or their family’s quality of life through nutrition and exercise.

— Elizabeth Sauter, MD (OB/GYN), Westport, CT

In September 2014 I was overweight, diagnosed with PCOS/insulin resistance, and had lost my dad at 53 to diabetes complications three years earlier. After taking Loryn’s RESTYLE YOUR LIFESTYLE classes twice and checking in weekly/monthly, I lost 30 pounds and got my bloodwork where it needed to be. Despite this, I periodically yo-yoed and really wanted to feel healthier. I hadn’t kicked my sugar addiction and I worried I would ultimately sabotage myself. This year, I finally decided to enroll in the 28-DAY CLEANSE & DETOX program and made a commitment to free myself from “sugar jail,” as Loryn refers to it. During the 28 days, I found low-calorie, clean dessert recipes made with minimal amounts of natural sweetener that satiate and keep blood sugar 

 stable. I pass on fruit, but continue to make these recipes if I want something that feels indulgent. I never thought I’d see the day I could walk away from a cookie or bake a birthday cake for someone else without eating it! I’ve lost a total of 40 pounds so far, feel the best I’ve ever felt, and best of all—I am finally free from sugar jail!  —Emily, Ridgefield, CT

I just about given up when they had no answers, and just popped Advil like they were Tic Tacs to handle chronic body aches. I am very sensitive to gluten but didn’t know it. About 2 weeks into my first 28-DAY CLEANSE & DETOX PROGRAM, having removed all gluten, it suddenly dawned on me that my body hadn’t hurt for a few days and I hadn’t taken any Ibuprofen at all. I have been going to doctors for this since I was 5 years old so this discovery was life changing! I’ve done the program many times over the last 4-5 years and each one is a bit 

different. During my first cleanse I saw my energy levels sore, I woke up most mornings feeling well rested and I lost 11 pounds. I learned that eating clean as much as I can gives me so much more energy and it helps with my mood. It’s actually pretty easy to eat clean in real life! I have spent most of my life struggling with food, obsessing about food, trying not to eat too much, etc. I learned that a brownie will not make or break my waistline, but it will send me down a path of food cravings and obsessive food thoughts. I rarely eat anything with gluten and I drink a lot of water with lemon. Not only did I learn so much and lose weight but I made many healthy changes to my diet! – Alica Westerlund, Fairfield CT

Last Christmas I stepped on the scale and saw 200 pounds. I was 36 years old, 5’3” tall, and out of excuses for why I looked and felt the way I did. It was finally obvious that I lacked the knowledge and drive necessary to change my habits and get healthy. Loryn and I met in private sessions. She helped me to understand that my problems were not insurmountable or unique. But she also made sure I understood that my weight loss was completely dependent on the work I was willing to put in. I moved from the private sessions to the RESTYLE YOUR LIFESTYLE class. It was the best experience I have ever had to help me lose weight. There were no gimmicks—just real people, like me, trying

to be healthier versions of themselves. Loryn filled every class with so much information that we gladly ran over the allotted time to ask questions. Loryn’s excitement and pride at my success was wonderful, but it was her encouragement, rather than judgement, those few times when the scale didn’t move, that was the motivation I needed most. Seven months after my first meeting with Loryn, I have lost 35 pounds and have gone from a size 16 to a size 10. I am still working towards my overall weight loss goal, but my journey won’t end there. I’m looking forward to a lifetime of being as healthy as I can be. Thank you, Loryn, for showing me the way. —Debbie Rand, Ridgefield, CT /Adelaide, South Australia

This year I lost 41 pounds between September and April beginning with the RESTYLE YOUR LIFESTYLE classes. The classes were informative and helped me become more aware of the role food played in my life and the new habits I needed to develop. Loryn helped me modify my vision of what a “healthy me” would look like. Within the classes there were specific, personalized suggestions for each of us. There was also clear data about the weekly progress we were making. It has been fun to fit into smaller sizes and to impress my doctor at my annual checkup. Loryn has helped me lose the weight and has increased my chances of keeping it off. There’s a saying that when the student is ready, the teacher will come. I’m glad that when I was ready, Loryn was there. She’s helped me move from a BIG self to a BETTER self. —Dave Canavan, Wilton, CT

I loved my experience with the private 28-DAY CLEANSE & DETOX program. At 43, I felt I had to stop wasting time and learn how to eat healthy, and if during the process I lost weight, even better. I decided to do the cleanse after an appointment with my hairdresser who had completed the same detox program. I couldn’t get over how much weight she lost and how young and healthy she looked. I lost almost 12 pounds while eating five times a day on the program. Losing weight was definitely something I hoped would happen, but learning how to eat well and keep off the weight was an invaluable lesson. My clothes fit well, my skin glows, and my confidence is back. After the detox, I lost two more pounds, have continued to maintain the program, don’t feel bloated anymore, and my energy is great. I haven’t felt this good since my twenties. Go see Loryn Galardi. It’s time! —Debbie Murray, Ridgefield, CT

Prior to joining the RESTYLE YOUR LIFESTYLE classes, my list of excuses as to why I couldn’t follow a weight loss plan were endless. I was too tired to plan meals, got bored with salads, too hard to measure things, too costly to buy healthy foods, didn’t want to eat differently than the rest of my family and—at the end of the day—I DESERVED to eat whatever I wanted because it was the only thing that I could completely control, and I didn’t want to deprive myself of the pleasure.

To say that Loryn’s program has changed my life forever is an understatement. I feel great, have more energy, sleep better, and do not feel deprived at all. I finally understand the toxic nature of my life-long addiction to food. I now plan my meals effortlessly. I am not tired of any food because there is enough variety to keep things different. I don’t feel restricted going out to restaurants. I take my lunch to work every day and my coworkers are genuinely jealous of my lunches.

The meetings are unbelievably helpful and they are nothing like I’ve ever experienced. They are fun, educational, and Loryn works hard to create a supportive environment. Anyone who has an excuse for not changing their eating habits should

give this program a try. I thank the friends I have made at Comprehensive Nutrition’s program for their support and thank Loryn Galardi for her tireless effort to help make a difference in each of our lives. —Hilda Maria Delucia, Bethel, CT

This 28-DAY CLEANSE & DETOX has been great for me! I immediately started feeling better and so happy. Within only two weeks, my inflammation was almost gone and my knee feels so much better! The arthritis in my hip is not bothering me nearly at all, now! That is a miracle. Also, I suffer from depression and I have not felt depressed even one day since I started this detox. The food I eat really affects me! I was so down hearted because my body was falling apart and now I have a new lease on life. I even drive around without the radio because I have so many clearheaded thoughts. Shopping for good food makes me feel important. When I start eating poorly how much I actually enjoy eating good food. It is amazing to eat a meal not feel any ill effects in any way. I really see it as putting fuel in my body that is good for my body. I would not put bad gasoline in my car. Why would I put bad fuel in my body? Today I got my first compliment from someone I hadn’t seen in a while – they said “oh my gosh, you look great!” Thank you very much! — Lucy Berry, CT

I began my education with Loryn because I had chronic inflammation impacting my life on a regular basis. I knew that inflammation leads to a host of diseases, and I also knew that food could be a powerful cure, but I had trouble adhering to changes. After doing the 28-DAY CLEANSE & DETOX and I continued with the RESTYLE YOUR LIFESTYLE classes. I now have powerful tools to use to stay focused on “eating to live” rather than “living to eat!” Loryn shares so much information and has contacts for additional help—from doctors to personal trainers to supplements—she’s a one-stop-shop. She is a great coach and cheerleader who really

one-stop-shop. She is a great coach and cheerleader who really takes a personal interest in your health and wellness goals. I have more control over diseases than they have over me. It’s empowering! —Marilyn, Wilton, CT

I finished my 2nd CLEANSE & DETOX Workshop with Loryn in October and know that I’ll be back! It’s a different experience for me each time and I am amazed at how quickly my body responds and how lasting the reset is for me. I always learn something different about my body but eliminating certain foods gives me immediate energy and clarity, aches and pains go away, I sleep soundly and lose weight. Loryn’s daily emails, guidance and the support of the group sustains me as I remember that this cleanse is an integral part of every year (maybe every season). My husband followed the cleanse with me for a couple of weeks and immediately lost 7 pounds of belly fat, has more stamina and energy and doesn’t get bloated like he did for years. He walks at a hefty pace again, got a stellar bill of health from his doctor and years-long joint discomfort has vanished! I would recommend this program to everyone. I can honestly say that my body is in balance now and I know that Loryn is always at the other end of an email.  – Laurie Doering, Norwalk CT

The 28-Day Cleanse & Detox and the Restyle your Lifestyle programs have changed my life. I am down 32 lbs (in 3 months) and feel fantastic. All of my cravings are gone, I have tons of energy, no more bloating and no cravings at all. I plan on sticking with the program from here on in. I realized all the bad habits I had and my addictions to sugar, carbs and dairy were off the charts. Today I am longer eating my child’s leftover pizza – Mac and Cheese and I no longer crave junk. Loryn and both programs have changed my life. Everyone stops me and says something and I tell them all about you. Thanks so much!! – Kacey L., Milford CT

How can I adequately say thank you for changing my life? This is the first time where I have control over what I eat and how I eat it. No more fad diets, binging, or being trapped in a vicious cycle. If you would have told me when I started this journey last May that I would lose 20 pounds and keep it off, I wouldn’t have believed you. I am now at my pre-pregnancy weight of almost 20 years ago. I have finally emptied my closet of my fat clothes. The most important gift I have received from your program is the feeling of empowerment. I feel so free!! I now eat healthy foods and exercise regularly, which keeps me in touch with my mind, body, and spirit. When I completed my first 28-DAY CLEANSE & DETOX workshop with you last May, I was so afraid I would go back to my old ways and gain all the weight back. It hasn’t happened and I know now that it never will because I control my food—not the other way around. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! —Cindi McCann, Westport, CT

I have had an epiphany; I was consuming too much food that I thought was “healthy.” I will probably lose a total of 14 pounds in the 28 days of the CLEANSE & DETOX program. You would not believe the energy I am experiencing. I am down to eight ounces of coffee from the 72 I used to have each day. My spouse is amazed at my energy and quiet temper. Forty years together and 40 diets, but I have never had a life-change plan before. Today is the first day of the rest of my life. Thank you all for the beginnings. UPDATE: Just a quick hello to say I love your program and I never felt better. I am now down 41 pounds and have started to exercise—Title boxing! It has been five months since the January detox when I began. UPDATE: Seven months and still believing the “can do” attitude. I am down a solid 50 pounds now. I am walking briskly five days a week—that’s 100 miles a month. God bless you! —A. Christine, Wilton, CT

With the winter 28-DAY CLEANSE & DETOX program, I have lost nine and half pounds (in two weeks). But even better than that, I feel great. I have so much energy. I work out twice a day. I jump out of bed at 5:30 a.m. and hit the floor running. I have NEVER felt better. I have my life back. I spent a decade being addicted to bread, sugar, caffeine, artificial sweeteners, etc. No more. I am convinced you work miracles; I don’t know whether to say thank you or genuflect.

UPDATE: I was celebrating the fact that I no longer fall under the “coffee addict” category thanks to your program. I thought about the cost of what used to be my daily coffee “experience.” The last time I bought a Venti Bold coffee from Starbucks it cost me $2.39. If I didn’t free myself from the herculean grasp of that stuff I would have spent $66.92 on Starbucks Venti Bolds over the past month. If l make it an entire year forgoing my morning Starbucks coffee ritual, I calculate, (with no increase in price due to fuel costs, bad season for coffee crops, etc.), I will save $872.35. I almost ran a red light when I realized I had been drinking a new flat-screen TV every year! Thank you Loryn!

UPDATE:  My results and experiences this time around were very much like the first 

cleanse; lots of energy from the beginning, and this time my cravings weren’t as strong. My skin, hair, and nails are all better and the bloat is gone. I feel great!! Eleven pounds lost, 3.2 pounds of muscle gained, body fat dropped by 4.3 percentage points (12.7%), visceral fat reduced by 2 points (12.5%). This cleanse gave me the reset button that I needed. I’ve been trying for months to get “recommitted” with no luck. Eating clean is now who I am and it’s what I do. Instead of beer, pizza, and tight pants defining me, it’s jumping out of bed in the morning with amazing energy, rewarding workouts, and being full of life that defines me. Jacqui and I are determined to live the detox lifestyle. Your biggest fan —Greg Coghlan, Fairfield, CT

My reasons for joining the 28-DAY CLEANSE & DETOX program, were numerous. I thought I was a good eater, but I have “issues” with sugar. I have always had a very active lifestyle but in November of 2015 I had foot surgery. I went from running 25-30 miles per week, cross training and weight training to absolutely doing nothing for 10 weeks. I had a difficult time physically, emotionally, and then you throw in the beginning stages of menopause – need I say more? I also have high cholesterol due to my genetics but I cannot take statins. I knew I was headed in the wrong direction. What I have taken away from the program is far more than I had ever anticipated and really stretched my mind to spots that I never thought it would go. I have learned the art of creating a meal that is healthy, tasting, filling and fulfilling on all the other levels that we look for in food. I learned how much I was reliant on food for comfort, release of stress, anxiety, anger and frustration.

Restructuring my meals and using food as fuel for my body has been a valuable lesson. Never a good sleeper, I now sleep like a baby. My night sweats are gone, my mood swings are non-existent, and my energy level is to a point where I don’t know what to do with it all. And, I have lost weight thus increasing my confidence. I am realizing how really bad I was feeling and how grateful I am for this opportunity and the guidance in learning a new healthier, enjoyable lifestyle. This experience has been a true eye opener on so many levels. Thank you for all of your input, guidance and professionalism during this past month. This is now a new part of me and I am welcoming it with open arms and mouth – for all the right things to enter! – Wendy Lynch, New Canaan CT

UPDATE January 2019: I love the prep part at this stage of my healthy eating life.  I know the results are so much better for me and to be prepared for the day with all of the right foods that make my body stay balanced is such a productive feeling for me.  My office is loaded with bad choices almost every day and I have no interest whatsoever at this point and that is so empowering for me.  I just grab my goodies from the fridge and enjoy every bite. This CLEANSE & DETOX has been a wonderful time for my body getting back on the right track.  I had a rocky year last year for many personal reasons and one thing led to another and next thing I knew I was heavier and sluggish and just not feeling good.  Low energy and right where I did not want to be.  My sleeping is back to where I can wake up and actually feel rested.  I want to thank you for continuing to stand beside in this journey and I am truly grateful for the education that you provide and this time around I am thoroughly convinced that my body is so well adapted to the better way of eating and my mind is right there with it.  The transition to eating whole and healthy was not nearly what it was the first two times I did the cleanse.  My mind and body are in sync. FINALLY!

I so enjoyed the RESTYLE YOUR LIFESTYLE classes and certainly learned a lot from you and the group. I am so happy to have found you! I cannot believe all I did not know about nutrition and healthy living, particularly since I have been “dieting” on and off all my life. I have been involved before in other programs, and you have been the only one to really show concern and caring. Because you really believe in and practice what you teach, the whole experience is that much more rewarding. I learned more about myself in these short weeks than I have in all my 67 years. Thank you, Loryn. —Dolores Mitchell, Wilton, CT

I loved the RESTYLE YOUR LIFESTYLE classes! I have tried different diets before that only worked for a short time (losing 10 pounds, then gaining 10 pounds). The format is so easy to follow—no counting points or calories. My metabolism works so much better since the class, and I lost 15 pounds in just five weeks. I feel much stronger and healthier than before. Loryn is a great teacher; she knows so much about nutrition, could answer every question and most of all, is a great motivator. I can highly recommend working with her to anybody who wants to live a healthier life. —Bettina Hennig, Wilton, CT

I was so appreciative of Loryn’s knowledgeable, no-nonsense, varied, and interesting approach to the 28-DAY CLEANSE & DETOX program. For the first time in my long “dieting” history, I did not once experience the feeling of deprivation; only a reassurance that I was adding “good stuff” for my health and well-being. I was fortunate to experience the wonderful sense of increased energy, better sleep, clearer thinking, and organization in my life. Eleven pounds of weight loss has inspired me to continue with her. Loryn’s approach is truly holistic and her timely quotes and daily emails were a great support. For someone trying to live a 12-step program, Loryn’s programs are a perfect complement! —Anonymous, Westport, CT

The RESTYLE YOUR LIFESTYLE classes were a great experience. I’ve put off losing those “few pounds” for years. As a fitness trainer, I was insecure that I always felt a little overweight. People assured me—it’s not how you look, it’s how motivating you are, how knowledgeable, etc., but it didn’t matter, I still wanted to “feel” like I look now—wonderful! I’ve always known that you can’t just exercise extra weight away, you need to modify your diet as well. Thanks to Loryn’s program, I’ve been able to accomplish what I’m always pushing my clients towards—“the whole package.”

—Susan Neumann, Redding, CT

I had gained 20 plus pounds over the past 10 years and really wanted to get back on track.  The RESTYLE YOUR LIFESTYLE classes got me motivated and focused on so much more than just the foods I am eating. The specific class with the visual about portion sizes and when to eat certain foods is what will stick with me. I am much more mindful of what foods are ‘triggers’ for me and I am planning out foods that are treats.  I lost almost 10 pounds during the 6 week session and look forward to continuing this lifestyle change.  I don’t feel food is in charge of me now.  I am in charge of food and of my behavior! – Lynne Marino, Wilton CT

When we began the 28-DAY CLEANSE & DETOX program, I felt groggy and simply worn out. My goal was to feel better and generally to gain better health. Of course, I also anticipated the byproduct of weight loss. What I did not expect was to reduce my running time dramatically in four weeks. In one month’s time, I reduced my 5K speed by over four minutes and my 10K speed by close to 10  minutes. I also noticed that I was not nearly as fatigued as I normally would be after runs and not nearly as sore the next day. Long story short, I have a lot more energy, the grogginess is gone, and I am jogging like crazy. I have signed up to do my first organized half-marathon and am looking forward to it, knowing that I will be able to finish strong! Thanks for a great cleanse—I have lost at least 17 pounds! —Blake Stevens, Wilton, CT

Thank you so much for your guidance and encouragement through this 28-DAY 

CLEANSE & DETOX. This is the second time I have done this and I feel I have the hang of it now. I feel great and I am down seven and half pounds. I have learned so much about food and what my body does and does not need. This has been a wonderful experience for my body and I can’t wait to do it again in the fall. Blake and I will be training all summer for a half-marathon in the fall, so we are detoxed and ready to go! I would recommend this to anyone, it is the best thing! —Lisa Stevens, Wilton, CT

2017 was the year that I committed to my health so I signed up for your 28-DAY CLEANSE & DETOX PROGRAM. I’d never detoxed before, so the thought of it was a little scary. All my fears were laid to rest at our first meeting. The room was filled with first-time detoxers, but also second/third time detoxers who raved about the program as they grinned from ear to ear! Your informational handouts, anecdotes, meetings and inspirational/motivational emails made the process simple and fun! I feel fantastic! I’ve lost over 15 lbs (weight loss wasn’t my goal, but it is a happy consequence). More importantly, you’ve given me so much knowledge about food and what our bodies need, as opposed to what our minds want. I can’t wait to continue my healthy journey! I have you to thank Loryn!

UPDATE – Dec 10, 2018: I’m happy to say that I’m still 100% committed to clean/mindful eating! I have you to thank for that! I rarely drink alcohol and have zero desire to eat pasta. Once you eat real, unprocessed food, everything else pales in comparison. I turned 49 this past summer and my husband said I look better at 49 than I did at 29.I couldn’t agree more! Over the course of, close to 2 years now, I’ve focused on eating clean, working out 6 days a week and I’ve lost about 53 lbs. Not only do I look better, but I am healthy. – Adriana, Wilton CT.

I received the biggest compliment from some close family friends the other day, but really the thanks all goes to you. We were talking about how we had all reached a certain age and were having a lot of trouble keeping maintaining our weight. And then the comment to me was that I had “discovered the secret” and am “so thin”! Yes it’s true I DO know the secrets, but I owe that to you and for teaching them to me and walking me patiently through them with PRIVATE ONE-ON-ONE SESSIONS, the 28 DAY CLEANSE & DETOX GROUP and the RESTYLE YOUR LIFESTYLE classes. Once the official fall detox class ended a few weeks ago, I began again on my own. And I feel great – in control, sleeping well, dreaming even, loads of energy, and great workouts too. Nothing feels as good as this does! Thanks again for all you’ve done for me!  — Elizabeth, Wilton, CT

I had gotten to the point where I needed to make a big change. I had tried Weight Watchers, lost weight, but I put it back on when I wasn’t paying attention. We are almost three weeks into the 28–DAY CLEANSE & DETOX program and I’m down 11 pounds. My original goal for the month-long cleanse was 10 pounds. So to say I’m thrilled is an understatement. I’m learning a new approach to what I eat. My plan is to incorporate this program into my everyday eating so that I can lose another 19 pounds by the time I have my high school reunion in October. For the first time, I really believe I can do it. UPDATE ONE WEEK LATER: I am now down 14.5 pounds. Of this, 13 were fat pounds. I also lost a total of 20 inches! My teenage daughter started doing just the healthy eating part of the plan and has lost six pounds in a week. We all have a whole new outlook on food, and it’s really great. UPDATE ONE MONTH LATER: I’m now down 18 pounds and still going! It’s very exciting. I’m wearing things I haven’t worn in years. —Joanne, Westport, CT

I’ve struggled with food most of my life. I came to the RESTYLE YOUR LIFESTYLE class to not only lose weight, but to be a healthier person physically. Loryn’s attention to detail, willingness to listen to your ideas about food, and the way she explains her materials, is a true testament to her as a teacher and a person. In six weeks, I have totally changed the way I eat. I am now having veggies with dinner and I replaced those sweets with fresh fruit. I feel better than I’ve felt in seven or eight years. I am also happy to report that I have lost 31 pounds in nine weeks.

My initial goal going into the 28 Day CLEANSE & DETOX Workshop was to lose weight, increase my energy and begin an exercise program. After just two days I noticed a very unexpected change in my emotional state. I felt powerful, strong and hopeful. I had an overwhelming awareness of being very much in control. I realized that I had been depriving my body in many ways. I learned that I was depriving my body of necessary nutrients that it needed to function in a healthy manner. Daily advice and messages from Loryn were perfectly scripted to encourage and redirect her participants on their journey.

The nutritional education and coaching gave me the ability to far exceed those goals. Much more than a weight loss program, Loryn Galardi has researched and fine-tuned her program to bring many more benefits to her participants. Nutrition, emotional well-being, self respect, self control, personal rewards, freedom from unhealthy eating habits, the realization that your mind and body experience is unique to each of us, decision making, clarity of thoughts and goals and learning how, what, where and sometimes why we chose to derail our nutritional well being.

I would recommend her to anyone interested in improving their health. These are not deprivation based programs. On the contrary, results come from education and implementation of the information. Loryn’s dedication to her clients is equal to none. She is most interested in her clients adapting their nutritional practices to lifetime habits.  – Robin Lynch, Wilton CT

I’m just a few pounds away from losing 40 pounds in my fortieth year. I just wish my dad were still around to pat me on the back for what I have achieved. His passing away from a heart attack was one of my motivations. I was an active 39-year-old woman with three little kids, and I had been overweight for quite some time. With each child and life’s stresses, bad habits seemed to only get worse. Everything turned around for me when I took the RESTYLE YOUR LIFESTYLE classes. Loryn provides clear information and a plan and support that are a great balance between direct instruction and mediated discussions. You feel so good, physically and mentally, when you follow her program that you don’t want to go back to your old ways. Loryn is the utmost professional who has an incredible dedication to her clients and their well-being. Whether you are looking to lose five or 50 pounds, sleep better or get healthy, it is worth taking one of her classes or meeting with her one-on-one. —Lisa, Wilton, CT

As a whole, I feel really good. I have had no aches or pains and no negative physiological complaints at all. I am actually more even-keeled and less anxious. As far as the weight loss—I lost eight pounds in seven days. In total, I have lost 15 pounds in 18 days. I am very happy and I feel I have had a genuinely life-changing experience. The positive changes mentally and physically are so significant that I actually feel better about life as a whole. I am very grateful for the 28–DAY CLEANSE & DETOX experience. —Allan Styer, Larchmont, NY

I joined the 28-DAY CLEANSE & DETOX program with a few health concerns: stiffness in my hands, lethargy, not sleeping well, and gaining a few pounds. I was cautiously optimistic that this program could help, but I must say I am shocked at how I feel I have transformed in these last 28 days. The stiffness in my hands is gone. It subsided by day 10 and was pain-free altogether by the second week. My energy is way up and I am sleeping through the night. I am doing and accomplishing more daily, and just feel happier all around. Finally, I have lost 10 pounds! I haven’t felt hungry and more importantly, have begun to feel more and more “satisfied” with the foods and shakes as the weeks progress. This has been a very transformative 28 days for me. I have no intention of going back to my old way of eating and living. Thank you for everything! —Stacy McGratty, Ridgefield, CT

I am a 60-year-old, 6’ 3” male, weighing 198 pounds, probably drinking too much socially, and had never thought much about what I ate. Boy, what you don’t know CAN hurt you. I got involved with Loryn’s 28-DAY CLEANSE & DETOX program and can honestly say it has been an eye-opening learning experience that I never thought I needed. I’ve lost 16 pounds in 28 days. Loryn’s easy-going manner, while still motivating us all to stay on course through the 28 days, was amazing. She is truly a very talented woman. I recommend this program whole-heartedly, especially for those like me who don’t think they need it. —Don, Wilton, CT

I joined Loryn’s RESTYLE YOUR LIFESTYLE classes and it has been life-changing for me. Loryn creates a comfortable and compassionate environment that is tailored to each individual. She teaches you how to eat well and make reasonable choices for you. I feel so blessed to have met Loryn and would recommend this class to anyone who needs help with weight loss. Her support and guidance motivated me to lose 15 pounds, and set me on the right track for healthy eating. Loryn is an absolute gem. UPDATE 6 MONTHS LATER: I am still losing, down 35 pounds. So happy with my new routines.
