"Marilu is my mentor. Her philosophies about health changed my life as well as my figure." -- Fran Drescher"Nobody does health better."-- John Travolta"Marilu--you have done the world a tremendous service."-- Rosie O'Donnell"If changing your body and looking great are qualifiers, then Marilu is definitely qualified to write this book."-- Tony Danza"Marilu is the healthiest person I know ... she makes me sick!"-- Carol Burnett"The best-organized and best-written book of its kind, "-- Peter Bogdanovich"Marilu, your program is fantastic. Five weeks ago my choles-terol was way too high, but since starting the program my cho-lesterol level has dropped 70 points. My doctor called to say my numbers look great now, and now my husband and mother--in-law are on the plan too. Thanks for your great ideas."-- Beth Silverman, Augora Hills, CA"My family has a history of autoimmune diseases--lupus, arthritis, as well as heart disease. I too was headed in the same direction with my doctors prescribing some heavy-duty drugs with scary side effects. The Total Health Makeover has given me control over my own body and that feels great. (I never thought I'd be eating things like kale and soybeans and actually enjoying them!) Your program has also helped me with my breast pain (I have fibrocystic breasts and had extreme burning and pain with my periods), but the very first month on your program the pain vanished and hasn't returned. It is such a noticeable improvement."-- Ali Bouvier, Clark, NJ"My mother and I would like to thank you for opening our eyes to healthy eating. My mom has lost 35 lbs. in two months and feels great. I'm a quadriplegic and losing weight is difficult, but by eating right I've lost 25lbs. and am feeling healthy again. Thank you for changing my life."-- William Balles, Carpinteria, CA "I am 27 years old and 5 months pregnant with my second child. I bought your first book about a month ago and am well on my way to making the 10 steps a part of my life. I am espe-cially interested in becoming dairy-free. My sister was very sick with chronic diarrhea for two years, undergoing numerous medical tests with no results. Then she went dairy-free and within three days the diarrhea stopped. She soon became preg-nant and as a dairy-free mom she gave birth to a 9 lb. 6 oz. baby boy. I can't wait to be a dairy-free mom too."-- Andrea Bouvier-Thieneman, Louisville, KY"For years I have suffered from sinus problems, primarily con-gestion and headaches. After reading The Total Health Makeover, I decided to give up dairy products completely. In the last eight months, I've had two sinus headaches and virtually no conges-tion, I've never felt so good!"-- Lori Hazenstab, Wilmington, DE"Your plan changed our lives. After following your plan my wife lost 25 lbs., became a full-time mom, volunteers at our sons' schools, teaches craft classes, and has a social life. On top of all of this Laura got pregnant last September. We had wanted to conceive a child two years ago, but Laura had physical chal-lenges that made it difficult. I truly believe that her losing the weight and changing her lifestyle contributed to our finally conceiving our third child."-- Leonard Hanna, Vancouver, WA "After picking up your book at the library, I have given up caffeine and dairy and can't believe how good my skin looks. I've been paying the top dermatologist in our state and he wasn't even able to get resultslike this. I noticed an improvement in only two weeks time."-- Sue Amos, Dedham, MA"Thanks to food combining I can finally finish a meal without getting nauseous, and since giving up dairy I no longer have to pay all that money for lactose enzymes (since I'm lactose intol-erant). All in all, I feel great."-- Susan Hiland, Nashville, TN"I have been overweight all my life and at 290 lbs. I was deter-mined to make a lifestyle change. I started reading your books and knew this was the way for me--it just made sense chemi-cally, emotionally, and physically. The first step I tried was giv-ing up dairy. Wow! I lost 15 lbs. without even blinking and just feel so much better. I was also successful in taking my one-year -old son off dairy, and since he has been dairy-free we haven't had any wheezing problems like we had in the past. Thank you for sharing your treasured information in a way that people can relate to."-- Janet Townley, Brookfield, CT"Since starting your program I have taken off 27 lbs. in three months, my daughter is eating healthier, and my boyfriend is finding relief from migraine headaches. What a difference your book has made."-- Susan Martin, Alexandria, VA
