Praise For The Never Say Diet Personal Fitness Trainer

“More than ninety percent of my patients gain back most of the weight they lose. Why so little success? The simple answer is that the average person can’t stay on a diet permanently. But this program is different. It is not a diet, but a complete lifestyle, thought-process, and physiological transformation. The change comes from within, helping to make you a better person…not just a thinner person.”
–Barry S. Ross, MD, Tamarac, Florida

Never Say Diet provides a systematic approach to living a healthier, more balanced life. The food list that Chantel Hobbs presents is nutritious and, most important, enjoyable. Never Say Diet proves that fad diets don’t work and cannot substitute for creating a lifestyle that leads to attaining your goals.”
–Lon Ben-Asher, MS, LD/N, registered dietician, North Shore Medical Center, Miami, Florida

“The importance of Chantel’s story can’t be calculated in terms of burned calories or lost pounds, and it’s not her dramatic weight loss that makes her such a special person. It’s her willingness to credit God’s ability to totally transform lives. She reminds us that lasting change has to happen on the inside before it can happen on the outside, and that this change is within reach of anyone who’s willing to seize it.”
–Bob Coy, pastor of Calvary Chapel, Ft. Lauderdale, Florida

“You might be able to lose a few pounds with a crash diet, but it’s temporary. That’s why diets don’t work for people who need to lose a lot of weight. Instead of going on a diet, you need to make a lifestyle change. In fact, you must undergo a ‘brain change.’ Never Say Diet delivers just that.”
–Joseph Tedesco, DPT, ATC, CSCS, physical therapist, Elite Physical Therapy, Charlotte, North Carolina
