Amy has an uncanny ability to say the exact right thing at the exact right moment. She is rich with knowledge, compassion and desire to stand for your greatness.
When I came to Amy I was run down, stressed and exhausted and I felt overwhelmed with the thought of going on yet another diet and failing. On top of that I had digestive issues, food intolerances and just plain tired of frantically trying to figure out what I could eat for health reasons. I felt I needed someone to hold my hand, gently, and powerfully guide me through the whole process. Someone I could trust and feel comfortable with with. She went over the practical steps, listened, and supported me.
I lost weight on the scale, but the more important part was losing my shame around my digestive issues. I lost the anger and shame with my body and now respect, love and honor my body. My frame of reference changed, so I started to ask for what I needed and did not want. Before I used to be nervous asking the waiter for gluten free, dairy free and ask if they had specific ingredients I was allergic to. I did not want to be a bother even in a restaurant where I was paying, friends, family and definitely not on first dates. For a long time now I have no problem stating what I am allergic/intolerant to, what I want and dont want, and love my body now. I honor it everyday and when it happens that I slip I have compassion.
This shift rippled into every area of my life and now my family supports my needs and stand for my needs and wants. My friends cheer me on. My career has dramatically changed. My whole world has changed dramatically and I cannot thank Amy enough for holding me in the unknown for so long and standing for my desires. ~Dana S., New York, NY
“Working with Amy was AWESOME!! I was feeling very stuck and cranky about having such “limited” options. I was beginning to feel that eating foods that best served me WAS NOT FUN! When I got on a 15 minute call with Amy, I had PAGES full of food ideas! She was an absolute food ENCYCLOPEDIA!! And the best part – the ideas sounded GOOD! She kept asking me if I liked certain foods, and if I didn’t, we didn’t talk about them. She had limitless ideas for the things I DID like! She also gave me some brilliant insights for what to eat while I’m traveling and how to always have nourishing foods with me.
If you’re feeling stuck with your food choices, I couldn’t recommend Amy highly enough!” ~Rachel R., Las Vegas, NV
“I can’t begin to say enough about the support I have gained from Amy. I am proof that distance is NOT a factor. While living in Texas, her telephone and email support have been constant. She has helped me understand the process of the body and food, and helped make changes in my eating habits, workouts and lifestyle changes. Her education process of nutrition followed up with meal planning has been eye opening and life changing. She has counseled me through stress management and striving for balance in my life. I feel comfortable talking with Amy because she can empathize with what I have experienced. She is a mom and wife with the same kinds of responsibilities and pressures that I have, and understands the road blocks I’ve come across. She is warm, kind, and caring and VERY easy to talk to about anything. I can’t begin to say enough thank you’s to her for all her support these last few years as I’ve lost 60+ lbs that have been hard fought for!” ~Lez K., Grapevine, TX
“After a trip to my MD for a routine physical had me concerned, I found a wonderful nutrition coach who set out a very do-able plan for me. Taking baby steps has resulted in gigantic leaps. Amy has presented step by step, easy suggestions for meal planning, behavior shifts and simple exercises to incorporate into busy schedules. Her vast knowledge of nutrition has answered any questions I have had. Amy’s recipe vault is filled with very simply prepared and delicious and satisfying dishes. Amy takes seasonal produce into account and incorporates them into the variety of meal suggestions. There is no deprivation, simply an array of healthy, delicious and nutritious options. I look forward to our sessions each week – there are always new ideas and recipes. Small goals are set and never a problem to meet. The goal in my journey with Amy was better health. All expectations have been exceeded with a lightness of being, peace of mind, and yes, weight loss.” ~Kathy S., Trumbull, CT
“Just about nine months ago I gave birth to a preemie. No more than two weeks after taking her home from the NICU, we were rushed by ambulance to the Children’s Hospital, where she had to undergo numerous tests only to discover that she has a severe allergy to dairy, nuts, soy and beef. I had been breastfeeding her and desperately wanted to continue, but was told by the doctors that if I chose to continue, I would need to eliminate these allergens from my own diet as well. Although I wanted to continue, it seemed impossible to me at the time as I had no idea what I would eat since my diet largely consisted of dairy, soy and nuts. Amy opened my eyes to a wide variety of food options available to me and walked me through it all. While we were still in the hospital, awaiting results from the numerous tests, Amy brought me dairy, nut and soy free delicious meals. The day we took our daughter home from the hospital, the second time, Amy took my husband grocery shopping and together they found many alternatives to my favorite meals and snacks. Amy’s guidance made the process of shifting to a restricted diet effortless for me!
Having Amy’s solutions at my fingertips when I had limited knowledge of health made it possible for me to overcome this difficult and overwhelming situation. If it wasn’t for her, I wouldn’t still be breastfeeding my healthy nine month old now! Amy has a wealth of knowledge pertaining to health and nutrition. She is supportive and always eager to help and goes above and beyond! As a mom herself, she empathized with me and lent a much-needed helping hand through the entire journey. Eight months later, I am still adhering to this “restricted” diet, which, thanks to Amy, I no longer feel is very restricted! Never in my life have I felt this healthy or mindful of what I eat, but that I am able to breastfeed my daughter, to me, is the greatest reward ever. There are no words to truly express my gratitude to Amy. I can’t thank her enough!” ~Lena N., Rye Brook, NY
“While some people can only talk about theories and their knowledge, it’s important to be able to take that knowledge and put it into practice. Amy Glass has been connecting the dots and turning it into real solutions for the last 20 years. Whether she was finding those solutions as a lawyer, in the health/nutrition field, or as a mom, Amy is tenacious in finding the answers to challenging problems – – especially when those answers are “outside of the box!” Amy Glass is creative enough and has the critical thinking skills to not only find those answers, but to disseminate them in a way that is clear and concise for everyone to understand. If there’s an answer, Amy will find it.” ~Jeff G., Seattle WA
“Amy is one of the most inspiring people I know. She can make any situation seem less daunting and make you feel like you can accomplish anything. Whenever I talk to her about anything health related, I always leave the conversation feeling empowered and confident that I can do it. She has helped me immensely over the past two years in particular. I have a 2 year old who has several allergies and thanks to Amy, I was not only able to nurse her (on a restricted diet) for 15 months but I now have so many healthy options for her to eat daily. Amy is an unbelievable person with a heart so full of compassion and empathy for others.” ~Courtney B., Greenwich CT
Amy Glass is a true inspiration to me. For years I was always setting goals for myself and never being able to achieve them. When Amy and I met for the first time we had a instant connection and she understood my fears, goals and weaknesses. From that moment on I knew I not only found a wellness coach but I found a very special person that now I am blessed to call a dear friend. Amy helped me devise a program that was tailored to my lifestyle and taught me to be accountable which motivated me even more. As a result of this program, I attained my goals and feel better about myself.~Nicole T., New Rochelle NY
Before working with Amy I was uncertain about my ability to maintain a healthy lifestyle. I felt as if I was climbing a ladder but never actually moving. I was very physically active but lacked the appropriate tools to reach any of my goals. The turning point was the knowledge, direction and support Amy provided me throughout my total wellness process. Now, I have dropped the excess weight I have wanted to get rid of for such a long time. I have better digestion, sleep patterns and a ton more energy. I also have a more knowledge and productive approach to food. The trust I put in Amy helped to jump start my life again! ~Jeffrey N. Portchester NY
I’ve had a great shift in my thinking about health — a real epiphany about de-stressing and taking care of myself. Many things you have said are really resonating. So that is all good. I love working with you and feel that it has made a difference in my life — and I need so much more! Thanks again for your patience and your tender, loving kindnesses. ~Cindy E., Pelham, NY
I first have to say thank you for this whole experience it has changed the way I look at food. From shopping at the grocery store to how I cook (even just for myself) and how and what I eat. I’ve learned to enjoy it all. Some of the things I will take away and use for a lifetime are how to live a more balanced lifestyle (including better moods and sleep), that fat is my friend, and even on a bad day, there is always some good. I’ve learned how to use this and so much, much more to be a happier, healthier person all around. Amy is a happy person who makes me feel comfortable to talk about anything! I look forward to a long future with Amy. ~Sue V., Westchester, NY
Amy, thank you for sprinkling fairy dust on everything you do. You are a magical creature and everyone who encounters you walks away blessed and uplifted. ~Giovanni Cavalieri, Las Vegas, NV
I can’t tell you how thankful I am to Amy for sharing her knowledge and experience with me. She is truly inspiring! Our talks are always helpful because I really get the feeling like she’s listening to me. Amy is a great listener. Just how she responded to the things I was saying and her energy seemed to be coming from a genuine and loving place. It was really very nice.
I find Amy inspiring because of her vast knowledge base. I am always trying to improve myself by learning new things and I got the feeling that Amy is also continually trying to improve herself for her practice as well. It is no wonder that Amy is so successful at what she does. I would expect that business may have slowed down because of the economy but it seems that Amy is still doing quite well. I bet Amy is also really good working with kids. ~Alma V., Westchester, NY
Your positive energy is infectious & it feels so nice to be around you! ~Abbey S., Westchester, NY
