Sue Ann helped me look at my life and see what I wanted for myself. In our work, I found my voice.
Every now and then you meet someone who has a profound influence on your life. Sue Ann has been one of those people for me. There have been many shifts in my life as a result of our work together. I eat much healthier foods. I have more energy. I live more in the present moment but with direction for my future. Sue Ann helped me create a vision board that inspires me each time I look at it. I’ve gotten back into exercise on a consistent basis and as a result, I’ll be running my first marathon in three weeks! For most of my adult life I put my family first—supporting my husband and two sons was my top priority. Sue Ann helped me look at my life and see what I wanted for myself. In our work together, I found my voice.

The savory smells of fresh garlic and basil marinara filled my kitchen yesterday. Yum!
Ahhhh, I had a tune-up appointment with Sue Ann yesterday. I am so fortunate to live so close! She is like a warm fuzzy blanket bringing comfort and joy on so many levels. Talk about rejuvenating. The savory smells of fresh garlic and basil marinara filled my kitchen yesterday. Yum! Sue Ann, thank you for lighting the culinary fire that I needed.

My husband says that I look better now than when we were dating!
To be honest, at first I was a bit wary about a trying a holistic approach to nutrition. It sounded new age and I am a scientist. But when I spoke with Sue Ann’s clients, I saw how much they loved her and I was totally convinced to give it a try. And now, I love her too! Her holistic approach encompasses the relationship between nutrition, emotions and energy. It makes so much sense to me now.
After about 14 months of working with Sue Ann, I am 20 pounds lighter, and looking and feeling great. Coworkers are telling me that I am radiant, that my body, my hair and even my skin look beautiful. My husband says that I look better now than when we were dating. A friend tells me that I am looking in my forties better than I looked in my thirties! Best of all, I am convinced this holistic nutritional approach is something that I can maintain. I feel that I found my light and my voice. And, I am whistling again!

With Sue Ann’s encouragement, I found my voice and my balance.
I know this sounds crazy but a one-on-one spotlight coaching call with Sue Ann Gleason really DID change my life. I had been enjoying her group teleclasses for many weeks, trying new, delicious foods, and opening my mind to healthier ways of eating. But in the one-on-one session, I realized my life was out of balance and I needed to make some changes. I was a ‘serial volunteer’ and becoming part of the ‘sandwich generation’ with a healthy mom (& her husband) who wanted to live part-time with me. With Sue Ann’s encouragement, I found my voice and my balance. Now I have opened up time for my health and mom has a fabulous new home for her weekly jaunts into town.

My skin is looking brighter, my clothes are a little looser, and I’m no longer confused by all the conflicting information out there.
I had the pleasure of traveling to New York City for a VIP Day. Sue Ann took me to all of her favorite haunts: natural food markets, raw food hangouts, and beautiful restaurants that serve fresh, clean food. She left no stone unturned. Who would think you could have that much fun learning what to order in a restaurant, how to travel healthfully, and how to change the mindset that keeps you stuck in not-so-healthy eating behaviors.
I never thought I’d be drinking green juice but after sampling the juice at Sue Ann’s favorite juice bars, I was ready to invest in my very own juicer. My skin is looking brighter, my clothes are a little looser, and I’m no longer confused by all the conflicting information out there. Sue Ann showed me how to tap into the wisdom of my body. Maybe I’ll schedule one of these VIP Days every year!

I finally have the tools I need to consistently make the right choices for my body. No more diets!
At first I thought she was kidding when she said I was the perfect candidate for her chocolate for breakfast weight loss program. Then I realized she was serious. Not only did Sue Ann share with me some very interesting science to support the delicious ways she ushered me out of the deprivation binge cycle I had been living for just about my entire life, I finally have the tools I need to consistently make the right choices for my body. No more diets! This was a slow and steady process. First we did a whole lot of work on the habits that I had formed around eating. It looked something like this: Eat, feel guilty, cleanse. Eat, feel guilty, diet. Eat, feel guilty. . . you get the picture. Sue Ann introduced me to a whole new way of eating. I never feel deprived and I no longer feel the need to diet.

After spending a few hours basking in Sue Ann’s vitality and enthusiasm, your only thought is, “I want what she’s having.”
Sue Ann’s belief in each person’s ability to take simple steps to transform their own lives leaves one thinking, “Yeah, I can do this!” Making changes in diet and lifestyle is so often presented as a matter of grim determination and endless deprivation. But after spending a few hours basking in Sue Ann’s vitality and enthusiasm, your only thought is, ‘I want what she’s having.’

My doctor tells me what not to eat. Sue Ann helps me understand why those things are bad for me and provides delicious alternatives.
Sue Ann is not the food police hitting you on the head with a hammer. She is an encouraging, empathetic, engaging soul who lets you know what foods to cut out and why, and how to gradually introduce healthier substitutes. A Washington Post Outstanding Teacher Award recipient, she brings those masterful teaching skills to her second career as a health and nutrition counselor. While my doctor tells me what not to eat, Sue Ann helps me understand why those things are bad for me and provides delicious alternatives, helping me gradually work my way to healthier eating. I attended one of her presentations thinking, I can’t wait to get off my healthy eating regime and get back to “normal”! When I left, I knew I would be making some of these changes permanent.

Working with Sue Ann has shown me that health and a love of food do not have to be mutually exclusive.
I have always had a love-hate relationship with food. It has been my best friend and comfort, but also my worst enemy as I’ve watched my body become something I no longer recognize. Working with Sue Ann has shown me that health and a love of food do not have to be mutually exclusive. Food does not have to be my enemy. Instead, I can love food (real food), revel in its tastes and textures, and still become healthy, energetic, and slimmer. For that, I am eternally grateful.

You inspire me to keep trying and to be creative. Thank you!
Wow—you inspire me! I tried your Minty Green Smoothie minus the frozen banana that mysteriously disappeared from my freezer. I loved it. I think my kids will like it with the banana. I’ve also tried the cRAWckers™ (dried in the oven) and the salad that you served us. I’ve sprouted lentils and soaked pecans. The best part is that my 3-year-old, who is dairy and wheat intolerant, and allergic to a few other things, loves the cRAWckers™ and the “dip” (zucchini hummus). My older daughter actually asked for it in her lunch. That’s amazing. You inspire me to keep trying and to be creative . . . not boring. Thank you!

Sue Ann opened me up to slowing down, finding the openness and space around me and savoring the moment – what a gift!
I setup a session with Sue Ann because I knew I could bring my health to another level. Yes, our session has given me the tools to do that, but most importantly Sue Ann opened me up to slowing down, finding the openness and space around me and savoring the moment – what a gift! Sue Ann is most knowledgeable as a nutritional, health and wellness counselor but she is truly gifted in her ability to offer compassion, understanding and a sense of connection.

I can definitely see a difference in my confidence level and I’ve been so much happier.
I woke up this morning and was very excited to “weigh in.” I’ve been working extra super hard these past couple of weeks and I couldn’t wait to see how much it paid off. When I got on the scale I was so surprised and thrilled. I’ve lost about 10 pounds. I think that is pretty amazing! I’m eating good foods and feeling full and I’m still losing weight. I don’t feel like I’m on a diet. I can definitely see a difference in my confidence level and I’ve been so much happier. I’ve also been doing the exercises you gave me and I feel like they are really working. Thank you so much for all that you’ve been doing for me. You have no idea how grateful I am that you have been taking the time to make me a healthier person. Like my mom says, “We are all going to live longer because of Mrs. Gleason!”

And, as if I wasn’t already a fan, I finally made your minty green smoothie and it literally changed my life.
And, as if I wasn’t already a fan, I finally made your minty green smoothie and it literally changed my life—one of the most delicious things I’ve ever tasted. I made two batches and my husband and I drank it all in one sitting. I found myself using my fingers to “lick” the blender pitcher as if it were cookie dough. Unbelievable! Can’t wait to see what else you have in store for us in your upcoming teleclass series.

Working with Sue Ann and the women she attracts is sheer delight!
I have worked with several nutritionists over the years and I’ve gone to them saying, “I’d like to lose weight.” Each time, I gained weight on their programs. Very frustrating. Sue Ann showed me how to create balance in my food choices and prepare fun, enjoyable, healthy foods. Most important, Sue Ann taught me how to ‘lighten up’ around my food issues and guess what? I’ve already lost a few pounds. Working with Sue Ann and the women she attracts is sheer delight!

We’re experiencing such a positive and uplifting transformation.
I just want you to know what a blessing it is to have found you. We’re experiencing such a positive and uplifting transformation. Like you talked about on the call last night when researching autoimmune disorders, things kind of pop into my life right when I need them, and meeting you was the same way. I knew we needed help, but had no idea where to go and was so worried about finding an approach that would best fit my Valentina. Thank you immensely! Valentina is looking forward to coming to our meeting next week. She’s also a big “Sue Ann fan”! So keep up the great work and thank you, thank you, thank you for what you do.
