Part nutrition education, part detox, part support group—an empowering combination!

RESTART with Diana Galindo truly changed my life. I had really bad eating habits and had gained a ton of baby weight. My youngest child is now 13 years old. I never thought I could stop eating sugar, but I did! With support and guidance in RESTART my sugar cravings diminished, I lost weight, gained energy, and learned how to nourish my body, and I feel incredible! Thank you for changing my life! – Juani L

I suspected that some foods I ate were “not so healthy”, but overall, I thought I was doing ok. Then after your RESTART class, and all the education about sugars, fats, body systems and better habits, I finally saw how much more I can do to take care of myself and my family.  I’m indebted to you for your persistence in guiding me and supporting me into a healthier lifestyle.

I am a true believer in the RESTART Program now, because my body won’t lie to me, even when my mind and taste buds send me astray.  You showed me how to listen to my body and see signs of good and bad eating.  After my RESTART with you, my swelling in my knees and hands went away and my energy stabilized. I felt better than ever! Lis S

I had reached a point age-wise where my body and metabolism felt I was stuck on a low energy, painful plateau. I wasn’t sure how to kick start change and  understand if my vegetarian/vegan diet was helping or harming me. RESTART stripped my food sources down to ground zero to determine what might be causing my health issues and vitality. And added two key factors – more water and health fats. While it was not my intention, I lost 8 pounds in 3 weeks and felt much better, with less joint pain in particular. The program has been insightful in understanding how much processed food and sugar was in in my daily regimen. I now have the understanding and potential to make mindful choices and maintain a healthier, more energized lifestyle. Diana’s supportive coaching was especially welcoming as I went through a few health challenges along the way.  – Michelle H

April 2022: Brain Maker: The Power of Gut Microbes to Heal and Protect Your Brain for Life, David Perlmutter, MD

Debilitating brain disorders are on the rise–from autism and ADHD in children to adults developing dementia at younger ages than ever before. But a medical revolution is underway revealing that your brain health is affected by the state of your microbiome–the vast population of organisms that live in your body.

Dr. Perlmutter explains the powerful relationship between intestinal microbes and the brain, describing how your microbiome develops from birth and evolves based on your lifestyle choices, how it can become “sick,” and how nurturing gut health can improve your brain’s destiny.

Why I chose this book? Gut health is a new frontier in strengthening your immune system and mental fitness and protecting your brain from diseases such as Alzheimer’s Parkinson’s and dementia. This book includes six steps to improve your gut health.

July 2022: Put Your Heart in Your Mouth, by Natasha Campbell, MD

If you ask someone what causes heart disease, their answer will probably be: butter, meat and fat. But this Diet-Heart Hypothesis proposed in 1953 was proven wrong by scientists all over the world. In this book Dr. Campbell-McBride dispels this myth and explains that cholesterol is not the enemy but an integral and important part of your cell membranes.

Why I chose this book? Fats are so misunderstood and so important in many ways — for your cell structure, fuel for your heart and your brain. This book explains the vital necessity of essential fats for your heart health. And what is good for your heart is good for your brain.
