Trang was so incredibly helpful on my journey to becoming healthier and improving my physical well-being. I initially thought I went to her because I wanted to shed the "Covid-19," that I had put on during the pandemic, but she showed me that it was really so much more than that. Changing the way I ate, did not just bring about weight loss, but I also felt so much better. My skin looks better and I have become far less moody (as my family can attest). As a lifelong vegetarian, I have found that certain programs focus too much on meat as the only good source of protein. Trang was totally fine with my emphasis on tofu and beans instead. She provides a lot of options and is very supportive of my preferences.
As a peri-menopausal woman, I have been suffering from hot flashes and sleep issues for several years. I tried numerous homeopathic remedies and a few traditional drug therapies, none of which worked. What did finally work was a radical change in my diet! That's where Trang comes in. Her plan's focus on vegetables and protein, and a focus on eating throughout the day has really transformed my daily life. That doesn't mean it was always easy. Ice cream and donuts are good, but feeling energized and not moody is also good. Also, Trang has so much knowledge to share and well understands how the body works, so that really helps as well. All in all, I would highly recommend Trang for anyone looking to change their eating habits. Making lifestyle changes is not easy, but with Trang's support, it is possible.
