A History of Success

Ann Louise has dedicated her career to helping people achieve their best health. Over the years she has helped countless people regain and maintain health. Read the stories of real people, real success.

I lost 60 lbs over 6 months…

“I lost 5.8 lbs in 4 days on the RM cleanse, more than halfway to my new goal weight. I won’t say it was easy but definitely well worth it and something I will do again. I really enjoyed the fresh juices and found the soup to be satisfying with a little squeeze of fresh lime

Ann Louise has done it again! I tend to drop pounds rather easily but was impressed by the quick drop and noticeable flattening of my stomach over such a short period of time given how little I need to lose.”

I Lost 10 pounds in 4 days and 2.5 inches off my waist…

“I lost 10 pounds in 4 days and 2.5 inches off my waist in the intensive phase – still doing the reboot phase and feeling great!

My shorts from last summer are too big!…

“I completed the 21-day radical reboot on March 1. As declared, I did not monitor my weight since health is my primary goal, but I do have an idea of my total loss. I weighed a day or two after completing the 4-day cleanse at 165 pounds. The morning I started maintenance I weighed 152 pounds. More importantly, I feel much better! I am enjoying my food more (I think “bitter” is what I had been craving). And secondly, my shorts from last summer are a little big!”

Pam A.

I feel great…

Finished my first cleanse yesterday – lost 7 lbs and my daughter lost 6!! I feel great – and was so glad to finish that last bowl of soup! Ha ha! I was very concerned about having intestinal issues during it due to intestinal distress in the last year, but I was happy to find that I had no problem! Now on to the 21 day!!”

I dropped a pants size on the first RM 4 day cleanse…

“I dropped a pants size on the first RM 4 day cleanse and 21 days, and now… well, I might just drop another one…. I love it. I love all the foods we can eat, it’s sooooo right up my alley. I’m feeling great!”

My first nutrition mentor…

“Ann Louise has been an inspiration to my career as a nutrition consultant.  As my first nutrition mentor she taught me what became the foundational principles of my practice, guiding my transition from book knowledge to real life successful client application. She not only changed my life, but has dramatically improved the lives of my clients. Especially important has been The Gut Flush Plan. Two of my most memorable cases and early successes were kids diagnosed with Crohn’s disease who actually had parasites. Using her recommended approaches the parasites went away and what do you know – no more Crohn’s!

Ann Louise is a true leader in the practice of nutrition. When my clients ask me for book recommendations, Ann Louise’s always top the list! She truly lives up to her name as the First Lady of Nutrition.”

 Bernart Rosen, PhD

Ann Louise was the catalyst of my passion for health…

Nine years ago my aunt had picked up ‘The Fat Flush Plan’ at a garage sale. I asked if I could borrow the book and instantly was addicted to learning more about whole foods, nutrition, and how to keep my body healthy. Ann Louise is so knowledgeable, yet easy to understand. This was the first “diet” book I had picked up that wasn’t a gimmick or a fad. I then started subscribing to her blog, her forum, and also purchased more of her books. I have recommended her to dozens of people and will continue to do so! Because of her I am aware of how my body is supposed to function when given the proper foods and nutrients, and also how to heal my body through nutrition rather than medications. She truly was the catalyst of my passion for health and wellness, and for that I am forever grateful!”

Healthy, results-oriented, and doable…

“A trainer gave me a specific eating plan because I need structure. It was a “fat flush.” I started researching Fat Flush and found your book ‘The Fat Flush Plan’. It made a lot of sense and helped connect some dots with the eating plan I was given. The trainer told me I would see results in my belly in a few weeks, and that was the case. I’m really big and I never see results there until after many many pounds. I know when I’m ready to buckle down, it’s the Fat Flush that will get me where I need to be. Healthy, results-oriented, and do-able. It’s nice that the science makes sense, too. It’s a book I read with a highlighter!”

Fast Track to Detox saved my life…

For several years I was treated for a misdiagnosis which made me gain weight and filled my body with toxins. When I was finally given the correct diagnosis I had to be put on medications that destroyed my gut and zapped all my energy to the point I had to drop out of college. After the disease was cured my body was left in ruins and I felt like I would never be the same. I was still in my 20’s but felt like I was 90. My mom helped me do the Fast Track Detox Diet and within one week I lost over 20 lbs of water weight and after the detox I got my energy back! It changed my life by changing my eating habits! I was also diagnosed with intestinal hyperpermeability after the diet made me realize how wheat and dairy affected me. My naturopathic doctor was able to take that info and start treating me. Ten years after it all began I finished my college degree, I moved, I got married, I’m having my first baby in August, and I feel great! Thank you Dr. Gittleman for writing that book! I recommend it and all your literature to everyone I know because it changed (and quite probably saved) my life.”

So educational…

I first bought the Fat Flush ten years ago. I found it sooo educational. I find it so interesting that so many things she talks about in her book are now all of a sudden becoming popular with other health advocates.”

Amanda K.

I’ve lost 40 lbs so far and I’m only single digits away from my goal…

“I’m looking and feeling great, plus my headaches have gone away! After several years of nothing working due to high stress, menopause and no gallbladder…I found this amazing way of life! I’ve never eaten this healthy in my life, despite the many diets I’ve followed over the years. I’ve turned into an organic woman! My poor hubby loves to go out to eat and has to listen to me say…”Do they have something healthy that I can eat?” But, he is happy that I’m doing a lot of cooking. I again want to thank Ann Louise Gittleman for developing this awesome program and her continuous search for the truth in nutrition! Radical Metabolism has changed my life for the better! The journey continues! Thank you!!”

GONE: Bloating, gas, pain, nasal congestion, sugar cravings, 4 pounds…

“My husband and I just completed the 4-day Radical Cleanse yesterday and these are my results…GONE: Bloating, gas, pain, nasal congestion, sugar cravings, 4 pounds – probably water but still happy to have it off of me! We are on a great path to re-train our palate and I have purged the house of sugar and gluten. I have been suffering for years with IBS symptoms and this cleanse has finally made me realize that I can feel good if I take care of myself. I am super excited to see how continuing on this healthy path is going to change my life for the better! Thanks to Ann Louise…it is totally worth it!

I have had several compliments on my skin…

“The most important progress for me to date is better health! I am finding out things about myself, and learning new ways to help improve my energy and vitality! I have had several compliments on my skin (Yay, Hemp Oil!). As I correct some deficiencies, take my supplements, and eat the right combinations of food, I love the way I am feeling! This is a wonderful learning journey for me.”

A true pioneer in her field…

After reading Fat Flush, my passion for nutrition was ignited. Ann Louise inspired my journey into health and wellness, which led me to become a Health Coach. She is a true pioneer in her field and a wealth of knowledge for the community. I look forward to her Facebook posts for her pearls of wisdom. She has been so instrumental in my own health and that of my family. We actually have a standing joke in our house, all products have to be Ann Louise approved. Thank you, Ann Louise, for all that you do.

…A smaller size than what I had been wearing two weeks ago!…

“I went shopping for clothes today and I usually walk right to the plus side, as I have done for the past 5 years. I found a cute top in the clearance section, along with a pair of pants. The pants were a smaller size than what I have been wearing but I figured I’d try them on, because I’m a week in to the 21 day program. I wanted the sales person’s opinions and both of them, at the same time, said “They’re way too big!” I was shocked because they were a smaller size than what I had been wearing two weeks ago! One of the employees went to the regular size side of the store, found the same pants in the next size down. I tried them on and they fit better…what a GREAT surprise! Keep going, it does pay off!”


She started my quest for nutrition…

Ann Louise’s Fat Flush book was the first book on nutrition to get me interested in changing my diet. I’ve been on a quest to improve my diet/health ever since reading it.”

Davina P.

On target and informative…

Her Fat Flush diet has helped me not only lose weight, but feel significantly better. Her info on parasites and probiotics has been extremely instrumental in healing my gut! Her posts are always on target and informative, especially how important protein is when dieting! Keep it up!”

Lisa G.

Helped me sail through menopause…

I’ve been following Ann Louise for around 15 years and her Fat Flush Plan helped me sail through menopause (and lose weight, fix allergies, and help with asthma). I’ve got just about got all her literature and follow her guidelines and advice when I can. She‘s amazing and cannot recommend her way of life enough for everyone. Thanks again ALG! ”

Ann Louise’s book marked a turning point for me…

I have always been interested in the role of nutrition in health. My mother has MS and I watched her improve the quality of her life as a child with nutrition and a holistic approach. I was born a “sickly” child and suffered from something all the time growing up and she used a holistic approach trying to help me. I lost 5 years to Chronic Fatigue Syndrome in my early 20’s,  but refused to believe I had to live with that state of dis-ease. I used food to bring myself into remission but it wasn’t until 1999 while working in a natural health food grocery store that I discovered I could become a nutrition consultant and help others to improve the quality of their lives as I had. It was Ann Louise’s books that really marked that turning point for me; I still have them all! “Why Am I Always So Tired?” and “Guess What Came To Dinner” impacted my life greatly and helped me reach that level of health I trusted was my birthright and knew I could achieve. Those books and her others still play a role today in my coaching with my clients. THANK YOU, Ann Louise Gittleman for all you do, sharing your wealth of knowledge and for caring. You are definitely one of my role models and someone I admire greatly! (iLiveVibrantly.com) “


I did the 4-day radical intensive cleanse…and lost 7 lbs…

“I followed with the 21-day Reboot and then went into maintenance afterward.
So, two months later…I just finished up the 4-day again, and lost another 6 pounds! For the first time in YEARS, there is a “1” in the hundreds place, and I am thrilled to say, ‘I have less than 50 pounds to lose!’ I am so giddy today, full of energy, I keep repeating over and over to myself, “I’m 198.5 …. I’m 198.5 …. I AM 198.5!” Of course also about another 1/2-1″ off various parts of my body as well.
Happy dance goin’ on today peeps!”

Two weeks and I’m down 9 pounds…

“Two weeks in and I’m down 9 pounds and 4 inches gone from my waist. Holy cow!!!”


Aimee L.P.

I’m on day 4 of another 4 day radical intensive cleanse. This round has been much easier, no headaches…

Ann Louise’s Radical Metabolism protocol has really given me just what I’ve been missing. I dropped a pants size on the first Radical Metabolism 4-Day Cleanse and 21 days, and now… well, I might just drop another one….I love it! I love all the foods we can eat, it’s right up my alley and I’m feeling great!”

After 28 days on Radical Metabolism, I was a pound from my goal weight…

After 28 days on Radical Metabolism, I was a pound from my goal weight. Since then, I’ve lost 3 more pounds in the last six weeks without really trying. I know three pounds seems minor but I haven’t felt this good in three years. And I’ve never felt this calm and satisfied. I used to run 4 miles 6 days a week and now I do strength training 3 days and Piyo or yoga 2 days and that’s it. My workouts are usually around 30 mins long as compared to 75 + before… and I’m still losing weight! It’s incredible! And I have energy, I don’t feel exhausted all the time. Thank you Ann Louise Gittleman. I think you’ve dramatically changed my life even though I was already a very healthy eater and an avid workout person. BRAVO!!!!”

Down 8 lbs and no cravings…

“Just finished my first 21 Day Radical Reboot. Down 8 lbs, but more importantly, feel energized and no cravings!

Keto didn’t work, but this did…

After a month on the plan, I lost 15 pounds and 4.5 inches off my waist!”


Ann Louise has opened my eyes…

I moved to Georgia about seven years ago and within two years I went from 135 lbs to 189 lbs. With my busy schedule as a single parent it was easy to grab that burger. I woke up four years ago after a yearly physical when my doctor recommended I go on cholesterol medicine at age 40. I declined. That is when Ann Louise came into my life. This is when my life changed forever. One year later I returned for my physical and my cholesterol was now better than a thirty year old. I don’t have anything against the medical field; half of my family is in it. But, I do know that 95% of the medications being taken in America are not needed, they are just a mask to control the real problem. America spends more than any other country on prescription drugs. After being with Ann Louise I read labels, I only purchase organic canned foods with no salt, no sugar. I learned how to make my favorite foods even better. I always hear that organic food is too expensive and that’s not true. If you can’t get them at a good price then learn about the food bath she has in her book. America spends less money per household on food. Why? Because we choose to eat unhealthy additives and pesticides. I challenge you to read the label on the foods you have in your house right now! Did you know what you were eating? Read your medications and write down how many say can cause liver damage or kidney damage. Get the Fat Flush book and educate yourself. You don’t have to follow the recipes, just get the idea. It works! Why? Because you’re eating healthy. Say good bye to diabetes, high cholesterol and more. Ann Louise has opened my eyes and she can for you. Stop making excuses!”

Fat Flush turned by life around…

Ann Louise’s book ‘The Fat Flush Plan’ was the very first nutrition book I’ve ever read. When I was growing up as a kid my mother was the nutritionist of the family, and my father was the junk food man of the house. I hated nutrition and health food stuff, I kind of took after my father in that aspect.  Then when I was older and I was huge, I couldn’t understand why I had health problems. Then it occurred to me that my way of eating was very bad. There was so much I didn’t understand until I read Ann Louise’s book, and it’s one of the best things that has ever happened to me! I love reading about Ann Louise’s stories and I’m still reading, dieting and exercising. Thank you, Ann Louise!”

I will never forget meeting Ann Louise…

In 1996 Ann Louise came to Telluride, Colorado to a restaurant I was managing at The Peaks Resort and Spa. I don’t usually work mornings but that day I was. She pulled me aside and mentioned to me how the buffet table was a carb-sugar laden mess with empty calories galore and food that lacked nutrition. And we were feeding skiers and athletes! She kindly asked if she could come back that night to the kitchen and show my pastry chefs how to cook a fruit tart (I believe) using stevia instead of sugar. I was so impressed with her kindness and knowledge. And then guess what? Because of my interest she sent me a stack of her wonderful books!! Oh my gosh…I have battled sugar addiction my whole life and these books will always, always remain in my heart and on my bookshelf. I still go for my half hour walk every morning and have used many of Ann Louise’s practices and eating philosophy. I will NEVER forget meeting her!”
