“Michale is the key to permanent change”
With 80 percent of fat loss being dependent on diet, Michale Hartte had her hands full when it came to teaching me new habits. She first had me keep a food diary and fill out a form containing 600 questions. Armed with the information she gathered, she was able to tell me what areas of my body needed nutritional support. It came as no surprise when she listed specific health concerns that my doctor had diagnosed a week earlier from my blood tests. Michale was then able to devise a healthy eating plan based on my own, unique blueprint. Like Brad [my hired fitness trainer], she sees the big picture, while fat loss is the desired reward, a healthy body is always the ultimate goal.
If your goal is to get in shape or lose unwanted body fat, or both, take my advice and seek out Michale Hartte.

“Healthy baby after miscarriage”
I came to Michale Hartte wanting to have a healthy baby with the fear of the previous miscarriage. I had been seeing a Naturopath, an Acupuncturist, and now, needed some dietary and supplementary guidance.
After meeting Michale Hartte, she put my on a simple-to-follow eating plan with supplements to improve my digestion, balance my hormones, and safely detoxify my body, with the ultimate goal – to get pregnant, have a healthy pregnancy, and birth a beautifully healthy baby.
With the three professionals in place, I knew I had a good chance…..I was right! Later that year, I got pregnant, had an amazing pregnancy and birthed a beautiful, healthy baby girl!!! I really feel, in my heart that Michale Hartte played a big role in all of this.
Thank You Michale!

My First Six Weeks On Michale’s Program
I first decided to seek help with my diet due to difficulty sleeping, digestion problems, asthma, dehydration, a hormone imbalance, difficulty in achieving sufficient muscle tone and a general lack of energy. I realize that all these problems were effecting my everyday routine however was unsure as to what the most effective course of action would be.
So I decided that a professional opinion would be quite helpful and called Michale. After filling out the information on my Personalized Nutritional Assessment [Nutri-Body Questionnaire] it became clear that my diet was quite insufficient in comparison to my life style and bodily demands. Simply trying to eat more fruits and vegetables is just not enough, I needed to know just what “eating healthy” really meant.
It did not take Michale long to see what my primary dietary issues were. She immediately pinpointed one of my major problems as having too much of a fungi called Candida in my body. This caused my exhaustion, craving for sugar and greasy foods. So sugars, alcohol, dairy products, wheat, and fruit juices where cut back significantly or removed all together. Also to control the Candida, Michale introduced Probiotics Plus capsules, Candicin capsules, and Candex drops to my everyday diet. Also Ultragest was introduced to control my digestion difficulty. Next was the Asthma. A major contributor to my symptoms was too much dairy. So dairy was really not something that I should have.
My sleeping issues were not helped by having caffeine or energy drinks in the evening or before training. Michale suggested no caffeine after 12:00 noon and instead of the coffee in the morning – have green tea. Also to regulate my hormones Michale introduced a seed rotation plan based on my menstrual cycle. And to give me even more help the [Fit n’ Healthy Plan] binder that Michale provided me with was full of great recipes, suggested foods, snacks, and ideas on how to store fruits, vegetables and nuts so that they stay fresh longer – among many other helpful hints.
I was so excited to get started! I was surprised by how little I missed the foods removed from my diet and how tasty the foods that have been introduced were. This made the changes in my diet that much easier to stick to and I was feeling fabulous.
Without even realizing I had lost 8 pounds and achieved the muscle tone I had long ago given up on ever having. My energy is returning. I feel that my asthma is improving and my digestion is miles better than I ever thought it could be. The bloated feelings, cramps and general discomfort after eating has been greatly improved. Also the cravings for greasy and sugary foods have all disappeared making eating the foods that I like and want to eat, very easy. But what I enjoyed most about the program is that it is absolutely tailored to fit my lifestyle making it simple and fun to follow. Michale doesn’t tell you what not to eat, but instead asks what foods you like to eat and suggests healthy alternatives that are in fact far more tasty and satisfying than the junk I used to enjoy. I love this journey!
