Patients’ Words

I have worked with Jill for almost a year now and she has provided me very valuable and useful information, to really help me get clear on my nutritional goals. Her approach has me eating more healthy AND eating dishes that taste as good as it gets! I have a newfound love for cooking because of Jill. She also has great ideas around how to cook meals for the week, especially when things get a little hectic. Her Interpersonal skills, listening, comprehending my problems and providing me feedback are extremely appreciated! Jill Borba is awesome!!!

For many years my doctor regularly monitored my blood sugar levels, which were indicating that I was pre-diabetic.  He never gave me any guidance as to the important role proper nutrition plays in diabetes prevention, nor did he suggest I see a dietician or do any kind of nutrition counseling.  Fortunately, a friend recommended I call Jill.  Within three weeks of beginning to work with her and following her advice, my blood sugar test was within the normal range.  Thank you, Jill, for saving my life!!

I love Jill! I’ve been seeing her for a few months now and I’ve learned so much! Not just about how food works but more importantly, how my body works and how I need to work with it. She is incredibly gentle in her approach and I appreciate realism she brings to her suggestions. And did I mention she is smart as hell! I learn something new each time we meet! She’s NOT an uptight doctor that tells you what to do, she’s NOT full of judgement, she’s caring, knowledgeable and she has changed my life! I came into her office frustrated, worried but willing to make changes. I experienced compassion and information like never before. 8 months later, I’ve made lots of changes, need to make many more but most importantly, I feel great -Physically, Mentally and Emotionally!

For several years my doctor regularly monitored my blood sugar, which was testing as “pre-diabetic”. He never talked to me about the role of nutrition in diabetes prevention.  Only THREE WEEKS after beginning to work with Jill Borba, my blood sugar test was normal.

I always thought healthy food came with a price… taste. But Jill has taught me that healthy food can be flavorful and delicious!

Jill is absolutely amazing. She completely changed my diet, daily life and overall health. I came to her for help with my IBS, that I had dealt with for over 15 yrs, which no Dr was ever able to help. But I’m excited to say that I have had no symptoms since coming to Jill. She taught me what to eat and so much about nutrition. And now I live a normal life and am so very thankful. I never knew how much diet impacts our lives, but now that I do I will never go back to my old ways.

Jill changed my life. For more than 20 years (perhaps longer), I’ve had problems with food, stress, and irritability. Thinking that I was already on an excellent low-carb diet, I did not seek out a nutritionist during that time. I relied on exercise, supplements, yoga, breathing, etc. But it wasn’t solving my problem. Jill solved it. She tailored a particular balance of protein, vegetables, fruit, and starch to suit my body, activity level, and needs. She advised me to eliminate certain foods and drinks and to change the number of meals I eat per day, snacking habits, etc. I followed her plan 100%.  And it worked. Two months later, I am far less irritable, I no longer stress-eat, I have lost weight and feel very light on my feet, I am mentally sharper, I sleep better, and my relationships are improved. I owe it all to Jill. I highly recommend Jill to design a highly tailored diet to meet your particular needs.  Many thanks Jill!
