Recovery from entrenched eating disorder
I have been seeing Lori for about a month now. I have been living/functioning with an eating disorder for what feels like most my life. Thoughts of food and body image have flooded my thoughts for years and I just couldn’t do it anymore. I am so grateful to have found Lori. For the first time I actually feel that I will be able to overcome these obstacles. Lori is so easy to talk to and be completely honest with. She challenges me each week but isn’t asking me to do anything I can’t handle. I completely trust her in guiding me to a healthier happier me. Thank you Lori Lieberman & Associates!
Improving health, managing weight
All I can say is that choosing Lori Lieberman & Associates was the best decision that I could make in regards to improving my health. I have been working with Margot Healey who is amazing for the last 5 months. The reason being is that as I get older I have found it difficult to loose weight. During each visit she listens to what is going on with my life and with my food diary. Margot provides suggestions to improve both my food choices as well as meal plans. For someone who has never cooked, Margot now has me cooking several healthy meals a week. I can’t thank Margot and her team for the continued support and guidance. They treat you like family and not just a number. Margot reminds me that this is not a diet but a game plan to improve my health one day and one meal at a time.
Weight management, healthier perspective
After years of dieting, (you name it I’ve tried it- Atkins, WW, Paleo, Grapefruit, Intermittent Fasting, and numerous other approaches) and after losing and gaining unwanted weight and spending countless hours fretting about food and wellness, I found my way to Lori Lieberman. We started working together and things were going well but I was unfortunately interrupted with a health crisis that had nothing to do with nutrition or food. I said goodbye to Lori after explaining that I had to concentrate on treatment and dealing with a complicated and scary medical situation.
Well, when it was resolved a few years later, I decided to go back and resume my work with Lori. I knew I was not done with my journey of trying to come to peace with food and my weight and now I had an added dimension…. I wanted help with specific nutrition to address my medical issues, combined with wanting to lose weight and do it all while dealing with the remnants of a longstanding stubborn eating disorder.
Luckily, I found myself in the right hands. Enough about me let’s talk about Lori. …First of all , she is smart, compassionate, educated and thoughtful, not to mention, gentle but firm, open, creative and analytical. Also, she looks and is fit and trim and healthy …and bonus…she loves food! She is so joyful about eating and really knows how to rejoice in nourishing herself and enjoying the beauty and pleasures of food (taste, sight, smell and texture) without monkey mind. Her approach is refreshingly holistic and focuses on the whole person and wellness overall. Nothing is black and white. There is room for everything. Lori dug right in to my over lapping goals and set to work on them with me. She even conducted some careful research before our first session when I returned, to answer my questions about optimal nutrition to address my specific medical /nutritional concerns.
In this process, I am trying to be trusting and patient because I realize I have just started on this journey toward a better approach to nutrition and health. One that lets go of shoulds, guilt and overthinking. I am hopeful that with Lori’s patient understanding, informed and thoughtful guidance I will someday be able to enjoy food in a relaxed and sensible way and still achieve my long term goals of fitness, great health and wellness.
To have peace and joy around food and weight and not compulsiveness, restraint and guilt would be a gift. I am betting that Lori will be able to guide me there
Diabetes and diet improvement
I was referred to Lori Lieberman by my PCP because of diabetes. It was a turning point in my life. Not only did my sugar numbers improve but I also lost almost 30 lbs. in just about 4 months. She taught me the right way to eat. I can’t thank Lori enough for all the help she had to give me but more importantly for all the help she didn’t have to give me!
A healthy relationship with food, enjoying life
Lori’s approach has changed our lives: pure and simple.
I began seeing Lori about 6 months ago. My daughter was off to college soon and I wanted to make sure that she would have proper eating habits. I have struggled with my weight all my life. Never being able to lose that extra 30 lbs. I have tried every diet and have spent thousands of dollars in search of the perfect one. I even tried overeaters anonymous. I thought I knew everything there was to know about dieting. Yet my life continued to revolve around food.
My daughter asked me to go into her visits with Lori and so I did. Only when I began to realize that dieting was the WHOLE problem did I begin to lead a balanced life. The constant food thoughts disappeared. As a result my daughter and I have lost weight. We have learned how to have a healthy relationship with food and now spend more time enjoying life. Most importantly my daughter has been spared all those years of insanity!
A healthy view of food and weight
I just wanted to thank you again for all of your help. I could not have lost the weight without you! I’m really amazed at how easy it was with your guidance. For the first time ever, I feel like I’m in control of my eating habits, and I’m happy with my weight and how I look. I’m amazed that I have made such progress and finally have a healthy view of food and weight. I really appreciate all of your help and support.
