Here are just a few testimonials that some of my clients were so kind to write
The Greenfield family
It was thanks to random scrolling on Instagram that my family found a man that would change us all for the better!
Our 7-year-old had decided she was going vegan, and even though I was an animal-activist, I hadn't yet made the transition from vegetarian, I hated cooking, and I was at a loss as to how to keep her healthy, with these seemingly impossible restrictions.
Marc came to our apartment to explain what he does, and to bring some unbelievably delectable samples! My extremely health-conscious, carnivorous husband Nick, was skeptical, but he agreed to listen with an open mind. At the end of that meeting, with empty dishes littering the table, my husband signed us up for four family sessions with Marc!
The next four Sundays became a happy, healthy, cruelty-free, laughter-infused cook fest! Each week the recipes seemed to get easier, yet more tasty. Our 7 & 10 year old daughters handled their share of the prep work, while Nick & I did some cooking, and a lot of question asking. Nick continued to discuss (debate!) nutrition with Marc, but after a few weeks, Nick became a believer, and fully enjoyed this new way of eating!
We wound up adding two more weeks to our original plan, and then felt ready to give it a go on our own. It certainly was easier having Marc there, but it's amazing how far the four of us have come as chefs, as a family unit, and as caring citizens. With the jars of seeds, nuts, and powders beautifully linking our kitchen, it looks like we know what we're doing - and we do!
Going vegan is one of THE most effective things you can do to help our planet, better your health, and of course support the animals. I had always thought it was simply about deleting previously-loved foods - but Marc showed us that is not the case. We are now eating healthier and more enjoyably than ever before.
(Oh, and Nick, who previously loved sushi as much as he loved his wife - has easily maintained his veganism four months and counting... )
Heather, 40: I have struggled with my weight since I left high school. I tried so many different "diets" and while they may work for a while, it never lasted and I wasn't able to stick with them for long. In my mid 30's I had my first child. By then I was obese, had high cholesterol and was on medication for high blood pressure. Having started our family later in life, also was a growing health concern for us, so we needed to find a true solution. My husband and I were desperate to get healthy so we could be around as long as possible for our children. My husband had seen all the pictures of great looking, nutritious whole food plant-based meals that Marc had made and he asked me if I would be willing to try Marc's approach to healthy eating/lifestyle. I agreed but was skeptical that it would work. I'm so glad we contacted Marc and began our cooking lessons. He has such a down to earth approach and easy going personality. He shared with us his vast nutritional knowledge and provided unlimited support throughout the process and even still today, a year later he is a support to us. We were able to contact him with any questions along the way and he was always quick to respond. He has such a way of making such simple meals taste so delicious. When I started Marc's program I hated vegetables, but I am proud to say that Marc opened my eyes to how delicious plant-based food can be. I continue to lose weight, but more importantly, I'm so much healthier now. I'm off my blood pressure medication, the last time I had my cholesterol checked, it was 132 and I continue to lose weight. I was also able to quickly and easily conceive our third child at age 40 and i had the healthiest pregnancy I had ever had. Marc is so passionate about what he does and it can be infectious. Helping people get truly healthy is definitely what he does as I will never have to diet again and my health only gets better. He has added years onto not only my life, but also my husband and children's. There is no greater gift than that!
Neil, 42: Working with Marc has been a wonderfully eye-opening and life-changing experience. In less than a month's time...gone was a lifetimes worth of misinformation and unhealthy eating habits, as I was able to embrace a healthy lifestyle for the first time in my life. I have tried to lose weight numerous times throughout my life, but none of those attempts had any lasting effects. The difference this time, I believe, was Marc's program, the knowledge he imparted, and his constant support. For the first time, I finally understood what I was doing wrong all those years, and how much harm I was causing myself and my body by eating the way I had been all my life. I finally understood how harmful dairy products, meat, sugar, and processed foods were, and how they were directly responsible for my elevated blood pressure, cholesterol, and triglyceride levels. I was on a very unhealthy path, very likely headed for a heart attack and any number of other ailments. Right now, and for the last two years since beginning Marc's program, I feel better, stronger, and healthier than I have since I was in my teens.
Giorgio, 52: A year and a half ago I decided to try the plant based lifestyle. Luckily, a friend recommended I hire Marc as a coach! I would not known where to start, with out him. He put my partner and me a regimen of smoothies for the first week. He helped us shop both for the food and equipment we would be using. We had shopping and cooking sessions with him for a couple of months. Over the coarse of three months, I lost forty pounds! More than a year later, I have maintained the new weight and I feel great! All thanks to Marc!
ED, 74: When my partner sprung on me that he wanted us to start eating only plant-based foods, I was not enthusiastic, as I was already taking prescribed Vitamin B12 and a weekly Vitamin D tablet, so for me at my age it was a concern. My doctor however was not concerned and said he would monitor my B12 levels and Vitamin D. He said the best thing I could do was give up dairy products, as he himself had done. Marc guided us through the process with his knowledge and passionate approach. After 3 months I had lost 40lbs and at 74 years young, I feel great. I have much better endurance now and my overall health has improved immensely and continues to do so. Although I went into this grudgingly, thanks to Marc, I am 100% sold on this way to live life. I do not ever see myself reverting back to my old ways of eating animals or their dairy. Marc has made me realize that I can live an even healthier life without an animal need to suffer or die. This is a great motivator for me, in addition to the tremendous improvement in my health! Thanks Marc!
