I initially began my nutrition plan with Skylar after my first semester at graduate school. I exercise on a regular basis, but after working during the day and going to class at night I put on extra weight due to the stress and poor dietary habits. I knew I had to make a change. As a nutritionist, she has a wonderful way of personalizing each session and was extremely helpful with snack and meal ideas. She had me keep a journal of my daily food intake and guided me towards proper serving sizes. I thought I knew the basics about nutrition, but Skylar taught me how to really read food labels and how much of my diet should consist of protein, carbohydrates, and fat. I learned to recognize unhealthy habits and eat mindfully. I am heading to my goal weight and have never felt better! I cannot possibly be more pleased with her guidance. I highly recommend her if you have any questions or concerns about nutrition.

Working with Skylar was a fabulous experience for me and my family. Having Skylar come into our home and look through what we were typically eating allowed a more personalized experience. Skylar breaks nutrition down into real-life terms and dispels all the quack information out there. I would highly recommend working with Skylar to any of my friends or family.

Before meeting with Molly I was struggling with high cholesterol, stress, fatigue, and poor sleep, in addition to being overweight and borderline diabetic. Her approach and dietary plan were very customized. Additionally, my customized program was centered around many of the foods that I enjoy. This made it much easier to maintain daily. The dietary plan also was designed around my lifestyle that included, among other things, an intense business travel schedule. This was important to me. With molly’s approach, combined with exercise, the quality of my life has changed for the better. For my 60th birthday in October 2022, I was able to successfully run and complete a half marathon. Without Molly’s guidance and advice, I would not have been able to do this. I now have more energy and the last two times that my bloodwork was taken it has been great! My doctor was impressed with the progress as well! I would unequivocally and without hesitation recommend Molly to others seeking to improve their dietary health. She is a great listener which allows her approach to be very empathetic, resulting in a dietary plan that is “customized” versus a one-size-fits-all approach. She is in my corner!

We met Skylar years ago when as a dad I was frustrated that everywhere my kids went they were eating chicken nuggets, pasta, and pizza 90% of the time. We invited all of our friends with similar-aged children to come over for an informal seminar that I named “No more chicken nuggets!” During the seminar, Skylar educated us on how to properly read food labels, food terms, and buzz words as well as food and nutrition methods that got our children excited for new foods. It was a huge success with all of the other parents. Skylar also helped us with everyday activities such as going to Whole Foods to walk the aisles; it was quite a different shopping experience! Since then we have had Skylar back every 6 months or so to not only fine-tune the kid's diets, but we have also had her focus on our own diets and see where various improvements can be made. Skylar has been instrumental in us living a healthier lifestyle not only at home but out in the real world.

Skylar has taught me so much about nutrition and habits to stay healthy. As someone who used to rely on crash diets and quick fixes, with her help, I’ve been able to drastically improve my health and eating habits with small changes over time.
Caroline Regan, Back Bay, Boston, MA

Throughout my life I have tried many different diets and had always failed. With Molly’s expertise she has taught me how to understand food and how my body works. Molly didn’t restrict my eating habits but showed me how to read labels, how foods work together and introduced me to many healthier options. For the first time I was losing weight and didn’t feel like I was on a diet. Molly truly knows her stuff and was a pleasure to work with.

I came to Molly for help when I was at my absolute worst in terms of my IBS symptoms. I was suffering from a horrible case of IBSC and acid reflux so I needed someone who I could trust to help heal these uncomfortable flare ups. Molly immediately made me feel safe, understood, and taken care of. Her approach to healing my symptoms are both realistic and achievable. Since consulting with Molly, I have gone on to heal these horrible symptoms. I can’t recommend her enough to anyone who is suffering from any kind of gut health issue. Her dedication to helping her clients is truly unmatched.
