Due to my PCOS, weight loss has always been a struggle. However, Leslie has made the journey motivational, educational and above all, positive! During each appointment, she celebrates my successes and delivers such validation and encouragement! I have learned so much from her guidance, and continue to gain valuable insight into the proper and healthy way to lose weight!

It’s good to know that I can call upon Leslie (if and when the need arises) for a “tune-up” session. I really believe that she helped me achieve a level of success with regard to healthy eating habits as well as addressing my number 1 objective, managing Type 2 Diabetes. Under her “watchful eye” and abundant knowledge, I have been able to control my blood sugar levels (and continue to do so). I have seen a big improvement with my numbers and as a bonus, managed to lose some weight. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

I saw Leslie after visiting a gastroenterology doctor when I was diagnosed with non-bleeding ulcers and inflammation in the gut. I found Leslie to be very understanding, compassionate, and patient. After following her guidelines regarding food choices and some supplements my ulcers healed and my discomfort went away. I highly recommend her.

Most recently, my internist recommended that I also engage a Nutritionist to help me with food and weight management to help my Diabetes, Cholesterol and Overweight issues. Via a recommendation, I connected with Leslie Anders who is truly amazing! I have only been meeting with her for the past 3-weeks and have benefited from her invaluable knowledge, practical experience and guidance. In addition, her subject matter expertise is further complemented by her sensitivity and patience. In addition, Leslie provides very specific recommendations and substitute ideas for one’s favorite food choices that might not be the best choices. While I have already seen results, I am very optimistic about this continued progress. I highly recommend Leslie as a Nutrition Consultant for anyone who wishes to further understand the benefits of healthy food choices and how to start with this approach. Healthy eating is a way of life!”

I have had a great experience with Leslie Anders from the start of my association with her. She has been educating me on nutrition, given me insights, advice and plans to help me journey into optimal health.
I am over sixty years of age and was doubtful about weight loss and management for many years. Changing my lifestyle seemed an impossibility. Leslie has helped me to know that not only is weight management possible, it is so worthwhile. She gives me information and insight about food and nutrition in general and any specific information I need for my body. Leslie has gone over my health history and responds to my concerns or questions from a nutritional standpoint.
I find Leslie Anders to be professional in her field because she is willing to share her expertise freely. She does research to give the best information available. She is also personal because she approaches diet and nutrition in an individualized manner. She makes my success as important to her, as it is to me!
I have been and I will continue to recommend Leslie Anders for dietitian and nutrition services. She has been invaluable to me and my journey.”

I wanted to thank you again for taking on our dad as a client. Not every one of your peers was willing to work with an 88-year-old. Dad’s outlook has changed dramatically because you educated him about the relationship of food in his diet & made it easy for him to understand. He has adopted most changes you recommended enthusiastically. His weight reduction has been the first in more than 15 years…that’s exciting & empowering. His doctor has taken him off of one of his diabetes medications, which is a great achievement. I talk to dad daily, he always mentions what he is making for dinner, he is eating so much healthier these days. I wanted you to know he has more energy & on nice days he walks the track at the local high school. He also looks forward to your sessions, he sees them as a food education discussion, not a lecture. I think your ability to change up his menu when he gets bored has gone a long way to keep him on track. Continue your great work!
We will be celebrating his 89th birthday this February at his favorite Italian restaurant. He told me to make sure we start out with more vegetables & antipasto items than the usual Pasta & bread!”

After nine months from when I began working with Leslie, I am maintaining my 15-pound weight loss and am on the way to losing the last 5 pounds. I do not weigh or count my food. Over the 4 sessions I had with Leslie, I learned how to figure out how much and what I can eat to either maintain or lose weight. I’ve even been able to re-introduce some of my favorite indulgences and have figured out what I need to cut back on and/or when to step up my exercise. Leslie tells me that I was the one who lost the weight, but the knowledge she armed me with was a major factor in achieving my goal.
I feel very fortunate to have Leslie as my nutritionist. I continue to see her for periodic “tune-ups” and she has become a trusted member of my healthcare team.”

I am so thankful for all the help that Leslie Anders gave to me. Out of all the doctors that I saw, my family and I agree that she was the one that cured me and got me back to normal.”

Leslie Anders is nothing short of a miracle worker who was a critical part of our son’s multiple food allergy team. By his 1st birthday, he had fallen off of the growth curve and suffered severe eczema. Through elimination of foods (and appropriate dermatogical care), our son’s symptoms and reactions were managed. However, the challenges of a limited diet were wearing on him as well as us. Through our excellent new pediatric practice, we found Leslie and she helped us figure out strategies to get him eating better, as well as supporting ways to further alleviate the symptoms of his allergies. And it paid off. Between his 18 and 21 months he grew 2 inches and was back on track to his original spot on the growth curve at 50 percentile. We are so grateful for her insight and expertise as it resulted in our child getting back his growth and improved his quality of life.”

I would recommend Leslie Anders to anybody looking for Nutrition Counseling. I started seeing Leslie 6 months before my Bariatric Surgery. I really needed to learn how to eat & live a healthier lifestyle. I no longer eat junk food. She has gotten me to eat more fruits & even some vegetables. I’m eating more fish & poultry and it’s very satisfying. Leslie taught me to think of going to the gym as a prescription. I keep on losing weight & feeling better thanks to Leslie. If I have a week where I stumble, Leslie gets me back on track. Leslie is very motivating and an extremely kind, warm human being. I feel very comfortable around Leslie & enjoy my visits with her.”

For me as a professional chef I never thought that my health was going to be affected by bad food, or so I thought. I moved 5000 miles away to a new culture and way of life. Suddenly, having to walk for everything was gone and new and unfamiliar ingredients appeared. But I am not alone regarding the consequence of cultural adaptation. I needed help. So here came Leslie to the rescue. As a professional, she is up to date and willing to share the best of her knowledge. Just three simple things that she recommended got my cholesterol to an acceptable level. I continue to remember how easy it was to follow Leslie’s directions, and how little it takes if you commit yourself to change.”
