“Dr. Dae’s program changed my life. My first month of summer after freshman year at school proved challenging. The shift from an extremely hectic schedule to no schedule at all was alarming. During my first month back at home, I felt lethargic and depressed. Finally, my mom literally dragged me out to a detoxification seminar being hosted by Dr. Daemon Jones. Initially, I was worried about starting Dr. Dae’s program. I have never been one who subscribed to the idea of weight loss programs. Plus, I was worried about investing my parents’ money; what if I couldn’t make the program work for me? However, after one discussion with Dr. Dae, my attitude changed drastically. She made my issues with my body and mind seem completely conquerable. The 28-day program Dr. Dae prescribed for me significantly changed the way I dealt with the stress in my life. For one month, forced to forego coffee and other unhealthy foods, and allowing my body to heal properly through proper diet, sleep, meditation and exercise, I immediately started to feel the weight of my own insecurity lifting from my shoulders. It felt amazing to have this support system behind me composed of not only my parents, but also Dr. Dae’s incredible team. Their check-ins kept me on track with my fitness goals and the meditations and eating plans gave a structure to my day that I did not realize that I needed.
After the program, I feel that I am still making progress. I still practice mindfulness and remain cognizant of the fuel I give my body. Additionally, I have finally figured out which foods, (namely dairy, eggs, and gluten), that I personally need to avoid at all costs.
This year, I am living in an apartment rather than in a dorm, and it has made a tremendous difference. My roommates and I now have the luxury of grocery shopping for the proper foods, and I can cook meals in our own kitchen rather than rely on dorm fare. I am now able to make meals that are nutritious, delicious (and inspired by Dr. Dae’s healthy recipes and eating tips).
I now have clearer skin, a better sleeping schedule, and increased self-confidence. It is so nice to be in a place where having my picture taken no longer terrifies me. I could not have made this much progress in such a short amount of time without Dr. Dae.“
