I have had the great fortune of knowing Carolyn Akens for over a decade. Now over a decade later, Carolyn has become a dear and trusted friend to our family. We no longer view her as an exceptional chef but rather as more of a health and lifestyle coach.
For the quarter century I have been blessed with an exceptional career as a brain and spine surgeon. I have spent countless hours both teaching and being taught the science of neurological surgery. An important part of this education has focused on how to properly nourish the patient after surgery to make the most of my repairs.
Carolyn’s approach is simple and if you trust her you will quickly realize a revelation in your approach to your diet. Everything she recommends has a well thought out reason that makes perfect medical and nutritional sense.

I started working with Carolyn 7 months ago through the advice of a trusted friend. My health issues were starting to escalate to the point I could no longer ignore it. Since working with Carolyn, I have lost over 40 lbs. without feeling hungry, and I am still losing. What is more important is that I got my life back. Carolyn offers a service that is beyond health coaching. Her willingness to listen and adapt a program that worked with my crazy lifestyle made all the difference in the world. But her true caring nature and warm support is what made this healthy lifestyle transition so easy and empowering.

I came into this program thinking that I had a fair amount of knowledge on detoxing but it was this program that changed my life. I use to call myself the constipation queen, I know that’s nothing to be proud of but it was the truth. During the program not only did I lose weight, I lost that constipation grip that was holding on to my body. I know now what regularity feels like once again…I have dropped the constipation from my name, now I am just a queen! The detox program gave me several ways to detox and not the usual one quick fix. I’ve tried a lot of products, only to receive marginal success. This is definitely not your average program. I would recommend this program for anyone, even if you have a so-called healthy diet. Thanks so much Carolyn, you have been more than a blessing.

I am so pleased to have completed the detox program developed by Carolyn Akens, Holistic Health Coach. Upon completion of the detox, I definitely had more energy, lost weight and I have continued to feel fantastic. The in-depth manuals, daily e-mails, and weekly conference calls provided by Carolyn increased my knowledge and motivation tremendously and helped to ensure my success with the detox program. I can clearly see the results of releasing toxins and cleansing internally and will carry the information gained with me for the rest of my life. I plan to cleanse periodically for continued health and well-being. Many thanks to Carolyn Akens.

“I completed Carolyn’s Detox program and let me just say that I thoroughly enjoyed it. I know that that may sound strange about a detox but it really was. Unlike other cleanses that I’ve done, I feel that this one actually prepared me to continue living a healthier life. I realized that I actually can do this! And completing this detox program has given me the self-confidence to continue eating healthier and treating my body with the utmost respect. Physically, I have more energy and feel great on top of losing 10 lbs and lowering my bmi to a healthy range. I feel like I’ve entered the next chapter of my life and taken it to the next level. Carolyn, I thank you for such a great program that has inspired and motivated me on so many levels.”

Carolyn, I want you to know how thankful I am to have coached with you. What a revelation it was to find out my food archetype and to admit it was true. Coaching with you gave me the insight I needed about “me” and how to let go of the stuff that was enabling me not to lose weight. It is true, spirit, soul, and body all play a huge role. I am where I want to be (25 pounds lighter), and all is finally well with me. Thank you, Carolyn.

Since coaching with Carolyn, I now know the reasons for my weight gain and sugar cravings. I had no idea all of the ways I had been sabotaging myself because I wasn’t ready to deal with certain issues, nor did I realize how stress impacts the body in a very negative way. Thank you for guiding me and believing in me, Carolyn, along this journey. I have lost those forty pounds that had plagued me for too long and it feels great. Going forward, I now have the tools that I need to keep the weight and sugar craving away. Carolyn, you are amazing!

Carolyn, your cleanse programme was great. Whilst I was uncertain at the beginning, your encouragement made me realise that I could do it and it changed my behaviour. Thank you.
- Agatha McFadden, UK
Hi Carolyn! As you know, I was part of your weight loss program last year and the results were amazing. So when you introduced your cleanse program I had to try it. I am so glad I made the investment of time and money because it works and I so needed to cleanse and this was my first cleanse. What I know about you to be true is that you care about your clients and you deliver. I encourage anyone that needs to cleanse to do your program. Thank you, Carolyn.

Carolyn, I am so thankful for the change that my family and friends see in me. Dropping 20 pounds was amazing and I feel great with a lot of energy. Thank you for giving me realistic tools that I can use to remain on this lifestyle.

Carolyn, I am so grateful for all that I accomplished working with you. It sure feels great to drop two dress sizes. You are wonderful, and thank you will never be enough.

Dear Carolyn, I wasn’t sure that I would make it through the past 30 days, but I did. I am so happy to tell you that I have lost 25 pounds and I look and feel so much better. It is truly nothing short of a miracle and I thank you so much. BTW, I love GREEN SMOOTHIES!
- Viola Head, Newport News, VA
Carolyn, I was very skeptical when I decided to enroll in your weight loss program. I had tried every diet invented to no avail. As you know it took me a long time to get “lifestyle” into my psyche, but your perseverance and understanding prevailed. Carolyn, I absolutely love your coaching style and your ability to truly understand where I was coming from and not enable me with all of my excuses. I am so proud of what I have accomplished in 30 days and my family love the new me. You have given me a wonderful lifestyle that I will continue, thank you. My family also thanks you.

I tried the weight loss system and couldn’t be happier. I lost weight within the first week. Carolyn truly delivers.
