I just wanted to say that I feel very privileged to have had Dwayna work with me this past month. I’ve lost 17.5 lbs in four weeks and I truly feel she had a lot to do with it. I’m so glad and thankful for all of her help. She’s encouraged me and has held me accountable every day, and I felt so comfortable talking with her and sharing about my day and what I was eating. She took the time to always be there for me and often shared some great health tips with me that I will be using for the rest of my life. With her help, I broke my addiction to eating chocolate every night. I truly thank God for putting her in my life, and at a time when I really needed someone. And God found me the perfect someone to help me. She’s helped me more than she’ll ever know, and I sincerely appreciate her and all she’s done for me. I am proud to have her as my sister in Christ and friend for life.
- Liz Acquaire, 30 Days Working with Dwayna / Total Weight Loss: 17.5 pounds
I have been on a health journey for some time. Attaining a proper weight is something I have always wanted to do and have put out effort yearly to attain. Invariably, though, I would drop a good deal of weight, and then put it right back on, because of an inconsistent follow up plan for daily living. It is basically due to “knowing” what to do, but not doing it. Now, since December of 2012, I have made a conscious decision to make good health a priority…As a Christian, It is my duty to manage my physical health as a mandate from God, who gave me life: 1Co 6:20 For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s. As I was working with Dwayna for 30 days, I put myself on a 30 day water fast (which was my idea, as she supported me in it), where I added pH Drops, green powder and chia seeds to a gallon of water for daily consumption. Also, I started my day with a handful of vitamin and mineral supplements taken with sparkling mineral water with added lemon/lime juice (freshly squeezed) and stevia drops. As part of my regime, as needed, I had coconut water and towards the end protein powder. Every day, in the evening, I spent at least 30 min to 1 hour exercising. Every evening, I had to report to Dwayna, what I consumed for the day. If I had any food cravings, or perhaps slipped on my program by eating or drinking something I shouldn’t have. Sometimes I would text her a particular temptation I was undergoing during the day ( i.e.: being exposed to food that was right in front of me that my family was eating…). It really helps to have someone to talk to, who provides encouragement to stay on the straight path. Just knowing that I had to tell “everything I put in my mouth” was a great motivator to keep with the plan and not cheat. I never had this before, as I have always been alone as I fasted and dieted with no one to share my thoughts and feelings. (That is, with someone who is on the same road in fasting and health.) I can tell you, this is a blessing, and I recommend it…

“Dwayna, I appreciate you very much! I’ve never met anyone with such passion for a clean, organic healthy lifestyle. Your calm, sweet spirit and encouragement on this journey is a blessing. You make working with you easy. At first I was not sure. The inner fat girl in me was screaming, ‘She’s nuts! She’s a food Nazi!’ (LOL) [sic] But now, with less inflammation in my body and tons of energy, I have changed my opinion on ‘your’ way of eating. I must admit, well, you definitely know your stuff, girly!”
–Joy Coffey, 30 Days Working with Dwayna / Total Weight Loss: 20 pounds (even with an underactive thyroid)
“I have been taking the Zeolite powder you recommended a few weeks back, as well as changing my diet and juicing, and I can’t believe the results! I feel 15 years younger and have more energy than I know what to do with. Thank you for your suggestions! I’ve lost 7 pounds in two weeks. I am sleeping through the entire night without waking up numerous times. The best thing, though, is the energy levels I now have. I wake up and don’t need coffee or tea to get going. My complexion has changed, and I was able to dig in the closet and wear some clothes I haven’t worn in a long time.”
–Peter Schuyten, 2 Weeks of Health Tips from Dwayna on Facebook / Total Weight Loss: 7 pounds
Dwayna is a social friend of mine and I’m always interested in reading what she’s up to. I started reading her health tips on Facebook and a few stuck with me. A few weeks ago, while at my local Costco, I noticed they recently added organic lemon juice to their shelves. Remembering Dwayna had written that lemon juice could balance pH, which can curb sugar cravings, I decided to give it a try. In one day, I was able to finally easily refrain from eating after dinner and before going to bed, something I had been struggling with unsuccessfully for most of my life. I’m feeling better, my weight is easier to maintain in its normal range and I don’t lie awake in bed because I’m craving something to eat. Dwayna is the real deal. She knows the techniques and the science supporting them. It is always good to know why something works, and I am confident in following Dwayna’s advice.
