I have much more energy today; its 8:15 and I have already changed linens, started cooking, have a wash going, and dusted all the furniture. I usually have no energy and do these things in small segments. Also I lost another pound (10 pounds total). Thank you Gurus!

I have lost over 30 lbs. I have no cravings for carbs or sugar or anything for that matter. That is a miracle for someone who loved to eat sugar on a daily basis!

Great program! Great strategies! Awesome support! Delicious recipes!


This past week has truly been a journey for me. I no longer look at food as a treat, or reward. Instead, food is nutrients, period. Food is fuel for my body. The better the fuel, the better the performance. I am happy to say that I’ve lost 8 pounds. I proved to myself that I could “do this cleanse”… Read more “”

My husband has been joining me on this journey by enjoying the recipes from your programs and has lost over 25 pounds. His blood work has come back great. He hopes to be taken off of blood pressure and cholesterol meds at his next appointment. Thanks so much for all your help and support.

The more I stick with these principles the more I feel it as a life change rather than a diet. No real cravings either! I was stunned at how good the recipes are with all those healthy ingredients, some of which I have never tried before . . . 5 stars to Stephanie and Jane’s fabulous recipes!

I learned so much from this program it’s hard to know where to start. I learned to listen to my body for hunger signs so I no longer count calories. I also learned when to stop eating and what happens to my body when I overeat. I learned how to make healthy food choices. Most of all I learned how to get… Read more “”

This is my third cleanse and what I feel is so important is that each time it becomes easier to become aware of my own body and its response to certain foods. Also with each cleanse I have been able to move forward with trying something new such as brushing & deep breathing. Feeling good and making permanent lifestyle changes… Read more “”

This was my first cleanse and I was a bit apprehensive about how I would feel during the process. Would I be uncomfortable, hungry or have digestive issues? No! I felt great the whole time. I lost a few pounds, my belly bloat was gone and I didn’t crave unhealthy food & drinks. I think it helped that I was… Read more “”

I lost 10 pounds! But more importantly, I ate clean for the 21 days straight. This was first time I actually completed a program. I slept great. Woke up without hitting snooze button!

Ever since I can remember I’ve had trouble waking up in the morning because I’ve felt so tired. It made no difference if I got 6 or 8 or even 10 hours of sleep a night. I’ve had blood work done but they never found anything. Well, this has completely changed since I’ve been on this program! I am now… Read more “”

I wanted to thank you both, Stephanie Goodman and Jane Schwartz Harrison, this has been an amazing program! I went into this with some inflammation issues including joint pain, migraines, and bloating after eating. I have lost 10 pounds and 2 inches off my waist. I do not get the bloating after eating and I feel so much better overall!

Before Mega Energy Breakthrough I was already living a healthy lifestyle with what I thought was a “clean” diet. However, I have battled debilitating abdominal pain since I was a teenager and while tests show how inflamed and tore up my digestive tract is no doctor has been able to find a cause. I was starting to not care about… Read more “”

I just got on the scale this morning and I was 149 for the first time in years. When I started [the program] I was 160! Your advice is right on track and I feel so much better about how I am treating the inside of my body. Through this program I was able to reconnect with food in a… Read more “”

I really want to thank both of you because you have opened my eyes to so much and I love all the knowledge I now have. This program was so worth the money! I had borderline high cholesterol with a family history on both sides of heart disease. I participated in MegaEnergy because I wanted to finally eat like I should… Read more “”

Before Mega Energy Breakthrough, I suffered from bloating and digestive issues almost every time I ate. I also suffered from lack of energy and some days it was hard for me to find the energy to get through the day. Through this program, I have learned the foods to eat to eliminate the bloating and gas problems and now those… Read more “”

My inflammation story … is how I eventually came to know Jane and Stephanie. Prior to working with them on my condition I worked with two other nutritionists who improved my condition somewhat but it wasn’t until I was under the Nourishing Guru’s guidance in the last 6 months that I feel like the Cathe of four years ago has returned.… Read more “”

I joined the cleanse because I was interested in detoxifying my body. I found the protocol quite easy to follow and loved the recipes, especially the smoothies! Once I figured out how much I needed to eat I was quite satisfied, and didn’t miss my “normal” foods at all. I did not come into this program expecting to lose weight;… Read more “”
