Paleo Plan Testimonials
“Jason and Neely,
You two are best! Although we have never met, you have served as an inspiration to many. I have beep following the paleo diet for about two years. Fantastic health benefits. People have asked about my counts and figures (LDL, hdl, tri levels, etc), most are perplexed they are all at the lower end of normal. I have incorporated many of your recipes into my daily living.
I hope you both have a fantastic holiday season!!
Cheers to a healthy life!”
“I started Paleo when I learned how much the diet could impact my health–specifically my rheumatoid arthritis. I was already gluten-free, but the idea of cutting out so many other foods was pretty intimidating at first. This site helps me SO MUCH, though! I’m amazed at the quality of the recipes and am so grateful for all the creative ideas. I’ve been on Paleo for almost two months now and we’ve made the carrot muffins and omelet muffins every week–they are fabulous! And I’m feeling great–more energy and less lethargy.
Thanks, Paleo Plan!”
I just wanted to write to say thank you for your website and all of the great advice and recipes you post! …I wanted you to know how your site has helped, inspired, and educated me and helped me get that much closer to my optimal health.”
“The Paleo Plan is amazing. My husband and I began three weeks ago and are losing weight and feeling much more energetic. Your recipies are really good and very easy to prepare. Shopping is a breeze with the weekly menu shopping list. You have done a great job.
“I just wanted to thank you for the wonderful website and all the amazing recipes. Honestly, I was worried about starting my Paleo challenge but once I stumbled upon your site (love google) I got excited. I love the grocery list…life saver (and in the long run, time and money saver as well). But what I love most, is my new motivation to cook. Absolutely everything I have made has been like dining at a fine restaurant.
Once again, thank you!”
“I started Paleo and Crossfit in January of this year. I have lost approximately 60 Lbs. This website has made it extremely easy to stay on track. I love it and have recommended to the people in my Gym.”
“In 14 days I’ve lost 9 lbs. I’m sure this number could be higher, but I’ve slacked completely on the working out portion of this lifestyle (I’m planning and crafting for my sister-in-law’s wedding). I’m going to step my game up these next two weeks! I also accredit my success to the Paleo Plan’s weekly meal plans and shopping list. It’s well worth the $10-saves me time, brain power, and it actually adds to my will power (trying to plan your healthy meals on your own really can deter you from even trying the diet).
Any who, … usually after a few days into a “healthy” diet I NEED some rice, bread, pasta, sweets, etc. Did I mention I’m 1/2 Korean and 1/2 Mexican?! It’s been two weeks and I haven’t heard any voices telling me to stuff my face with carbs, sweets, or dairy! I honestly thought I would never last, but once I made it past the first week I knew I could make it for a month, if not longer.”
“I was pretty skeptical when I started working out really hard that I would be able to keep up with the meal routine or my workout routine, I was sure one would suffer. I’ve never felt better, the lack of grain which is an inflammatory was a huge part of it I think, I feel like I recover faster, or just ache less.”
“Thank you for the website as it would so difficult to do this w/o your help!!”
“Just wanted to let you know that my husband, son, and I have loved the recipes! They have been simple to prepare and delicious… I especially like the ease of planning….printing the menu and grocery list has been a lifesaver!
“I love the website. Thank you so much for putting it together.”
“What Jason has put together is awesome, simple and complete. People I have made meals for, with thanks to the recipes from here, are starting to come around to the fact they are in control of their food intake. I can truly say beyond all doubts this is the best way to eat and the body thanks you for it. Thanks Jason for a great site and the commitment to helping us (yes, even the kids like the food) all live longer healthier lives.”
“My Crossfit coach turned me on to Paleo 10 days ago and I today I hit a wall cause I was sick of “same ol’ food.” Well, now that i found this.. OMG.. I LOVE YOU!!! (this site) I have 40 lbs to loose and you should see the difference in me in only 10 days! Thank you for this plan!! Mother of 2, Wife, and business owner in Virginia Beach, VA”
“After having done the Zone diet for a few years, we wanted to step it up a notch and try paleo. We were being burned out on how to make vegetables and lean meat creative every day, so really wanted a better option for meal planning. When we found Paleo Plan, we thought the concept sounded very easy! Our first week in the Paleo Plan was awesome…we are back to cooking and actual meals again! We are thrilled with all Paleo Plan offers, and have highly encouraged our gym members, also like family, to sign up and make eating healthy EASY!!”
- Ben and Jen
“PaleoPlan.com is now an integral part of my gym and what we offer as an added value to our membership. It has greatly improved our sign up and retention by providing a professional easy to follow diet plan that anyone can follow and maintain which gives our members/gym more results, more referrals, more members, more of all the good stuff that we want!”
- James Lee, owner of Team CrossFit
“Just wanted to say thanks… I live alone and the major obstacle to going paleo for me was trying to figure out what to buy/how much/how to cook it… Your site has taken all of the thinking out of paleo for me and now I can just enjoy the benefits! Thank you so much!”
“Thanks again for making eating paleo so much simpler!”
Private Paleo Coaching Testimonials
“I initially consulted Neely concerning a sensitive stomach and quickly learned the daily discomfort I had come to accept was neither normal nor necessary. Neely’s educational approach and dedication to me as a client has enabled me to establish a solid understanding of my body’s nutritional needs and create a diet that works for me.”
“Neely worked with me through struggles with protein deficiency, low energy, fatigue, and gluten sensitivity to improve not only my rock climbing performance but also my daily well being and happiness. Her honest and straight forward approach to nutrition, combined with the extensive research and data she uses to back her philosophies, allowed me to understand what my body needs. I trust her advice because she doesn’t just tell me what I need to change, she shows me and uses her past experiences as a basis for this informative nutritional journey. Neely understands the uniqueness of each person’s needs and she compassionately works to inform each person of the wide range of nutritional options available.”
-Paige Claassen, Professional Rock Climber
“Neely shares her profound and intimate knowledge of nutrition with me using a communication style that effectively cuts to the heart of the matter. She is helping me learn the truth about the foods I eat and how they impact my body. As a result of our work together my body composition, energy, mood, and overall wellness is improving dramatically! Thanks for being a fantastic food coach Neely!”
“Neely has helped bring me back from my debilitating illness. My food allergies and intolerances were so severe that my whole body shut down and I had to resign from my job and have my parents cook and drive for me. She was caring and attentive, always getting back to me quickly with thoughtful answers, ideas and encouragement through my journey. I cam eternally grateful that she used her knowledge and intuition to help me find health and balance I never knew existed.”
“I have been a competitive athlete for 25 years, product development executive in the food industry for 15 years, and a fitness professional for 6 years. I considered myself well informed about food and nutrition and had a very clean, healthy diet by almost any standard. I went to Neely to see if I could return my athletic performance to a high level by improving my nutrition. Neely helped me break through some life long misconceptions about nutrition and diet. By implementing her simple, logical suggestions, I have noticed a dramatic increase in my tolerance for and recovery from hard training, an increase in daily energy and a reduction in inflammation/irritation around old injuries. Much more important than improvements in athletic performance however, is a new, heightened level of awareness of the nutritional value of the food I eat. For me now, its not about a diet for high performance, but lifestyle of profound health and well being.”
-Danny Suter, Boulder Performance Trainer and Competitive Cyclist
“Neely’s level of commitment to my success as her client was immediate. I had turned to her after seeing many different allopathic and homeopathic providers with no results. Without judgment of any of my prior treatments I had pursued, Neely was quick yet thorough in coming up with a nutrition plan aimed to correct my poor health. She was always available to answer my questions or concerns and responded promptly. Her commitment to me was further demonstrated as she stayed with me through the past year and a half as I went in and out of issues pertaining to my diet. Neely always made it known that she was there to support me.”
“Being both a professional athlete and an ethical vegetarian is not easy. Neely helped me identify what areas of my diet were lacking and how I could improve both recovery time and athletic performance without compromising my ethical choice. She addressed a number of misconceptions I, and many others like me, have about proper nutrition and informed not only my weekly shopping list, but also my attitude towards food. I direct all of my diet and nutrition related questions to Neely, and I always receive a direct and thorough response.”
-Jonathan Siegrist, Professional Rock Climber
“I have been having problems on and off for years. Neely had me tested for food sensitivities, and now I am doing so much better. Even when I mess up, she never makes me feel bad, she picks me up and makes me feel good about myself. Thank you Neely for all you do and the knowledge you so freely share.”
“Over the last 1 ½ years I was being treated by a doctor and though I did have some improvement in the beginning, I had plateaued and was starting to have increased migraines again. I started following the guidance of Ms. Neely Quinn only 4 months ago. She did some testing and with the results was able to get me on a diet that no longer contains foods that my system is sensitive to. Over the first 2 months I saw slow improvements but have noticed now that I no longer worry about when my migraines will be showing up. I was having migraines at least once a week and I HAVEN’T HAD ONE IN TWO MONTHS! I also have had problems for over 10 years with constipation and since following Ms. Quinn’s plan, I have been able to get off stool softeners and I’m finally able to start healing my gut. Thank you Neely for allowing me to finally start living my life instead of avoiding everything that “might” give me a migraine, or worrying about when my next migraine would be!”
“Since I was little I have had digestive issues. As an adult I began to experience worse symptoms that expanded beyond digestion. Finally, I started down the path of nutrition on my own–with a lot of guesswork. When I realized I had no idea what I was doing I started seeing a nutritionist in September of 2010. She made some great suggestions but also put me on a bunch of supplements that were not only expensive but made me feel bad–still using guesswork. Once I started reading Neely’s blog, survival of the foodist, I realized I needed to make her my nutritionist. She is quite brilliant. What I like about Neely is that she takes both a holistic and scientific approach to nutrition–eliminating the guesswork. I threw out the expensive supplements and began following Neely’s advice. Already I feel a lot better. With the help of Neely, I completed the LEAP test and am beginning a food sensitivity elimination diet to help pinpoint my food sensitivities and symptoms. Neely’s support is really what I needed to feel hopeful that I will get better and also to keep me motivated and on track. She offers a practical and realistic approach that anyone can benefit from.”
