Taylor T.

"This course made a huge impact on my life. I was never able to get below a 6.8 A1C on my own so I knew I needed help because my husband and I wanted to get pregnant soon. The A1C Shift Method helped me lower my A1C to a 6.1 so all I can say is that this course is SO WORTH IT!! I also am excited that I will always be able to come back to the course and continue to use it to fine tune. I'm so happy, thank you Lauren and team!"

"The A1C Shift Method Course has put my T1D control back in my hands. Some things in the course I might have heard before, but I had never in 14 years created the time, space and commitment to unpack, test and learn. I lowered my A1C from a 7.8 to a 6.9 and feel like I now know how to read my body, patterns and habits, and even as life changes over the coming years I will have the structure for tests and prompts that I can continue to revisit as I need." 

Tim B.

“Before Lauren's program I was constantly tired and wanted to be healthier for my baby girl being born. I am an ex- MLB player but was really struggling with self discipline. Lauren's method helped me lower my A1C from an 8.1 to 6.9 and it was one of the best investments I could have made. I would recommend Lauren's programs to anyone who expects more for themselves but needs help getting started!"
