“I came to see Dawn after years of trying to lose weight on my own – nothing was working. Dawn was able to quickly pinpoint why and create a new thoughtful way of eating and living tailored just for me. Within four months of Dawn’s guidance I had lost 12 pounds! I feel and look younger, my pinched nerve pain is basically non-existent as I’m carrying less weight, even my hair is healthier looking all due to better nutrition and choices. I now have a comfortable plan I can live my life with.” Holley, 2016 Client.
“Although I wasn’t an “unhealthy” person before meeting with Dawn, I definitely needed some education and to make some changes in my diet and food lifestyle. She helped me to change my mindset on what it means to be healthy, and it has helped me to, in a relatively short amount of time, lose weight, have more energy, and feel good about the food I am putting in my body.” Bailey Malbuff.
“Dawn has completely transformed the way I take care of myself. A year ago, I was overwhelmed by stress and a long list of food allergies. Dawn helped me incorporate new small habits that have changed the way I look and feel. In addition to her incredible knowledge and suggestions, she is so caring and kind and makes me feel like I have a close friend looking out for me!” M. O’Connor.
“I have known for years that the traditional kitchen methods that I “inherited” from my mother were not the best for my family, but as a working mother I just could not tackle how to make the leap to healthier alternatives. Then came you! I contacted you after reading an article in the New Canaan Advertiser and we met in my home. I cannot thank you enough for all that I have learned and all that we have accomplished for my family! If someone asked me what was the most helpful it would be hard to respond: the many articles and handouts that you shared on so many topics, the joint shopping session at my market to teach me to make better choices, the cooking class in my home, the wonderful herbs from your garden – the list goes on and on. I have made some important improvements in my kitchen and cooking techniques. More importantly, I am sharing my changes with my daughters who are in their twenties. I am sure that they will benefit from all that I have learned. I know that in the coming months new questions will pop into my head that I will want to ask you. I fact, I think that I will save my questions and meet with you from time to time just to stay current and to avoid backsliding to old bad habits. Your supportive, non-judgmental approach was great. You are a born teacher! Thank you for everything. I hope to see you soon. ” Mary Ann, a very satisfied client.
“When I meet Dawn almost a year ago I was in the process of trying to eradicate some health issues. Faced with rheumatoid arthritis and borderline diabetic I needed to make a change, one that I would be able to sustain for life. Dawn helped me to understand what I needed to do to make those changes. Under her guidance I successfully changed the foods I was eating and, more importantly, how I was preparing them. One of the most helpful things we did was spend time in the kitchen with recipes preparing the meals and snacks I could eat. My daughter’s joined us one day when we realized as a family, with Dawn’s help, that it wasn’t hard or scary to make the healthy choices. I would recommend Dawn whole heartily to anyone looking to make a change in their life that will make a difference.” Anonymous.
“I am so grateful for all the work I have done with Dawn. Through her thoughtful guidance, she helped me initiate healthy changes in my life, and reconnected me with my health goals spiritually and physically…. Working with her has increased my well being and my happiness… thank you Dawn!” Melanie M.
“Dawn helped me to effectively cut through the myriad of health and nutrition information that I had accumulated throughout the years. Dawn gave me clear weekly directions in manageable bites so that I could incorporate them quickly with long term staying power vs. a quick fix. Her comprehensive approach spanned from looking at my overwhelming cabinet of nutritional supplements and pairing down to the essentials and explaining why, to creating fast and nutritious breakfasts as I rush out the door, to healthy, practical family meal planning. I looked forward to our sessions and anxiously awaited the next health tidbit. I appreciated how she researched into my specific health history of RA, Psoriatic Arthritis and Breast Cancer and gave me the tools to stay healthy. I highly recommend Dawn’s accessible yet individualized approach to each client. (Not to mention, I am grateful that I did not have to keep a food diary, which I despise 🙂 “Sheri Hone, Lake Forest IL
“Dawn Kurth of No Kidding Nutrition is an excellent coach who takes the time to understand your objectives and health concerns and creatively develops a plan to help you incrementally change your lifestyle. Through her coaching, education on food content and follow-up, I am now reading labels to look for sugar and chemical content, avoiding added sugar, slowing down on caffeine, avoiding red meat, getting more veggies into recipes and mindful of food acid/alkaline balance. I am feeding better meals to my family and stocking my pantry with healthier alternatives. As a result after about 6 weeks I have more energy, fewer negative food side effects, I lost weight, noticed my hair and skin improved, and most importantly, I feel great. I sleep better and suffer less stress. All of it was relatively painless as her approach is to weave in new habits to crowd out the old ones. Dawn tailored her approach to my goals and circumstances and provided excellent ideas and solutions…she even provided some great recipes. I highly recommend Dawn!” Lorre Jay, New Canaan, CT

“Sloane had THE BEST TIME EVER at the cooking class this afternoon! What a fun crew of kids, what a wonderful teacher, what a fabulous topic! If there is another course, please let me know!” Barbara Latimer, parent.
“I entered the room thinking this would be just another nutrition class, but I soon realized it was so much more then that. We cooked, baked, worked together and learned that healthy food can taste great! We made a total of six recipes including hot chocolate, dark chocolate peanut butter cookies, minty green smoothies and so much more! We learned how you can do everyday tweaks to your breakfast, lunch and dinner to make them so much healthier. For example, instead of using butter in your eggs, you can use coconut oil which is great for you! This class truly surprised me and I can’t wait to come again! Hope to see you there!” Ashley, age 12.
“They loved the unexpected combinations of food and came home really excited to replicate the recipes. They were both raving about the smoothie and of course the frozen cookies were a big hit! Thanks for reminding them that healthy ingredients can make really tasty treats — it’s always good when they hear that from someone who is not their mom!! Please let us know if/when you are running other workshops, either for the girls or for adults!” C.S, parent (daughters ages 10 and 12)
“I hope there will be many more. It should be every Thursday!” K., age 10.
“Cassie had a GREAT time and is excited to try out all of the recipes on her family. I loved how healthy everything was. Thank you Dawn for a terrific experience.” Emily Warren, parent.
I can”t believe Dawn got my picky daughter to drink a green drink!! Thank you!! Jill Klein, parent.
“My daughter loved it as well! The Mini Mexican Eggs are in the oven as we speak- we couldn’t wait one more day to try them at home.” M., parent.
