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.

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.”

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 do-able!

“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 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.”

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.”

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.”

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!”

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 books 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) “


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!”

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.”

Fat Flush turned my 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!”
