As a life-long dieter, I have tried just about every program out there and have worked with numerous nutritionists. I am so grateful that a friend introduced me to Chen. Rather than handing me a basic program to follow, Chen took the time to get to know me. She reviewed my lab tests for the past several years. She asked lots of questions so that she could understand how my body functions and how I respond to various foods. Chen's basic premises are that each body is different and has different requirements and that nutrition is the key to good health. If you are not open to making major changes in how you eat, Chen might not be the right person for you. She is not about quick changes and rapid weight loss. But, I am off almost all of my medications now and have never felt better. While I haven't lost all the weight that I would like to, Chen is always gently reminding me that this is a process -that as I heal my body, more weight will come off.
Chen always goes the extra mile in serving her clients. She offers terrific cooking classes. My family loves the new recipes. She is working with a relative of mine that lives several hours away by phone and asked me to drive with her to see my relative because she was concerned about her. She actually calls you to see how you are doing if she has a concern.
In addition to private and group sessions, I have attended Chen's free monthly lectures. I have been amazed to learn how nutrition is at the root of the problem and the cure for so many chronic issues facing our society. Chen is a great resource whether you want to lose weight or just be healthier.
