"When I first heard my friend was putting together a group to do the Healthy Edge with a health coach (Julie Bass), I sort of shrugged it off. After all, like many people, I had tried every kind of diet under the sun. Pretty sure I would have a healthy chunk of the stock market if I had invested all the money I have spent on diets, schemes, gyms, classes, books (OMG the books!) and so on and so on. I was also tired of trying. I have lost and gained the same 50 lbs. over and over again. Every time that it came back (plus some); it would take a big chunk out of my heart. It was horribly depressing and I considered myself to be a failure. I might as well just accept that I’m going to be fat the rest of my life.
I decided to do Amber’s 7 day challenge; it was free after all, nothing to lose! And I found that I really liked what Amber was saying and it seemed like what I needed to hear. So, I decided to join the small group lead by Julie – with two other women. It has turned out to be one of the best decisions I have made in my life. Those messages from Amber every week hit HOME, boy did they ever! There wasn’t one week when I didn’t shed tears. Why? Because I found the truth – in those lessons. For the first time looking at WHY I did things the way I did. Why I made the choices I did and the best part…realizing that I could CHANGE.
I am really very grateful that Julie is my Healthy Edge coach. She is an incredibly empathetic person who is genuine in her quest to help others. I wasn’t sure what the value of having a health coach would really be, but I know now that it’s exactly what I needed. It’s quite apparent to me that I would’ve continued on my same path of eating, of feeling badly about myself, of wanting to give up. With Julie’s support and The Healthy Edge I see a different path!! For the first time in my life maybe!! I am excited about food again, about being active, about living life to the fullest. I have made a lifelong friend in Julie, and I’m so grateful that she is going to be there for me on my journey. And here’s the big revelation that makes me tear up just writing the words…. I GOT THIS. "
"I became a mother for the first time in October 2014. While I was so blessed to have been able to carry a healthy and beautiful baby girl, I was left with a body that wasn't familiar to me.
Not only did I have weight to lose, I had work to do on getting to the bottom of why I had the body image issues I've had for years - and ultimately how to change those belief systems.
Kara, my Healthy Edge Coach, held my hand through the process of overcoming these belief systems. Not only did she teach me the fundamentals of clean eating, she had tons of knowledge on clean living overall. She was always full of ideas on how to get a workout in, dinner ideas for the week, or a recommendation for a healthier household product for myself or my family.
I truly feel that the knowledge I gained during the 8 week Healthy Edge journey will stay with me for a lifetime. I would highly recommend working with a rock star Healthy Edge coach, like Kara! YOU ARE WORTH IT!"

"The Healthy Edge Lifestyle has truly changed my life! I had no idea that I could actually have energy. I didn't realized how bogged down my body was with all of the processed foods that I used to eat. I have been on my Healthy Edge journey for many years now and my husband and kids enjoy the Healthy Edge Lifestyle as well. It's really not hard and soon your body craves all of those real foods. I am never hungry or lacking with The Healthy Edge. I love that it is not a diet... it's a lifestyle!"
“I have gone through the 8 week program and really learned a lot about myself. Some of the info I already knew but it was great hearing it from another source to cement it in. I was able to get rid of some of my belief systems that were blocking me from moving towards a healthier me. I love the support of my Healthy Edge coach who encouraged me along the way. I have a long way to go yet, but as Amber and my coach say over and over. "It’s not perfection it’s the progress". The social media support is wonderful as well. What a great group of folks. We are all on this journey together and that alone makes it well worth it. No one has to walk this road alone. Here's to a healthier 2017”
