I went to see Audra in the summer of 2010, approximately 3 months before I was scheduled to run my first marathon in October on my 46th birthday. I have always been athletic and really had never experienced a physical challenge that was insurmountable as long as I was properly conditioned. But the marathon-training program had resulted in unexpected weight loss, to the point where I was losing energy and couldn’t finish my longer runs. I tried eating more but it wasn’t working. I was starting to become concerned that the training I had put in up through that time might go for naught.
After tests revealed that my body fat dropped significantly within a short period of time I went to see Audra for help with determining how I might improve my diet so that I could still compete in the marathon. For years I thought I had a relatively good eating regimen as it had enabled me to accomplish everything I set out to do athletically. But Audra brought to my attention several deficiencies that I had within my diet. Over the course of several weeks she aided me in further refining my diet to essentially consume more efficient calories and provide my body with the fuel it was lacking.
Audra’s help was instrumental in helping me complete my first marathon. More importantly, she showed me several ways to improve my diet going forward. I plan to carry those lessons with me for the rest of my life.
On May 1, 2011, I ran my second marathon in 3 hours and 35 minutes, knocking over a half hour off of my previous time (just seven months earlier). Audra’s guidance enabled me not to have any of the nutritional issues that hindered me previously, allowing me to focus entirely on conditioning myself for the race.
I will always be very grateful for her help and highly recommend her to those seeking nutritional guidance.
