Lives Changed

“My husband and I completed the three-month program offered by Rebel Health Revolution. “During each session, Carissa focused on our specific challenges and goals. Her health coaching has led us step by step to making healthier choices in how we select and prepare food.
Bad habits – such as stress eating, sugar addiction, and eating loads of processed foods – were tackled with honesty, understanding, and a little bit of humor! She keeps it simple, so it is sustainable. I got rid of the guilt I felt associated with food and now let what I eat make me feel better, look better, and give me more energy.”

“I started my journey with Carissa as my health coach in October. I needed to make changes in my life, but I just didn’t know how. I’m not a fan of dieting or taking pills. I desparately needed a LIFESTYLE change. Since October I’m down 15lbs & 14in. I feel amazing!! I HAD NOT seen the scale move in 3 years! I let go of some bad habits that I never thought I could live without and I’m not going back! I’m a busy Mom of 3 & I had lost myself. I reached out to Carissa & I’m so glad I did. She is so encouraging & the best part about it is I did it. I never gave up! My attitude & over all SELF CONFIDENCE has changed! Honestly I can’t stop smiling! 🙂 My kids have even noticed! It’s been an amazing journey & I can’t wait to continue. I even lost during the HOLIDAYS!!! Reach out to her, you’ll be so grateful you did!! I AM!! ”

“12 weeks ago, I felt awful. I was eating everything and anything. I had severe stomach issues, was gaining weight, had headaches several days a week, no energy, no discipline or self-control, and no self-confidence. In the twelve weeks since, I have gained SO much. I rarely have stomach issues now and I rarely have headaches. I now have the energy to work an eight hour day, come home, and meal prep and exercise. I am now able to walk past the bakery section (my weakness) in a super market, and not buy anything, whereas before, I would have bought cookies, cupcakes, and more, just because they were available. These habits lead me to loosing weight, inches, and clothing size! I truly believe that through this experience with Carissa, I have gained the ability to eat well and live a healthier lifestyle. While I am still a work in progress, I have gained more than I ever have with any other “diet” or lifestyle change. I believe I will use the habits I’ve implemented with Carissa, throughout the rest of my life.”

“I have been working with Carissa Konrad the last four months and she has been absolutely AMAZING! The past several years my weight has steadily increased. I have tried every diet, exercise, pill, and wrap on the market and nothing has worked for me. There have been many times where I have become very discouraged about my weight gain.

This past summer I decided to seek out Carissa‘s help. At first, I was very nervous because I was afraid that this was going to be like everything else I had tried. However, her help turned out to be exactly what I needed! She has truly gotten me on the right track to eating healthy and taking better care of myself! She is extremely knowledgeable and very motivating! One of the things that I have liked best about working with her is she truly takes the time to listen to you then she tries to help you find solutions to the problem whether it be what to eat for lunch or suggestions for supper when my family is busy. I would absolutely recommend Carissa’s services to anyone because her help has truly been life-changing!”

“I read a post about a former student and her journey for a healthier lifestyle.  I hadn’t seriously thought about tackling the weight loss or changing my nutrition for the past couple of years.  I made several attempts the during that time but each start ended with in the first few days.  That post made me aware of help in the form of Rebel Health Revolution.  Here I sit three months later a bit lighter (30 lbs) and enjoying each day.   I am eating healthier by enjoying whole foods.  My weekly meetings with Carissa are supportive and educational.  Her one on one support has been the key for me.

“I reached out to Rebel Health Revolution after receiving less than favorable blood test results and my overall sense of feeling unhealthy. What I walked away with after completing the 12 week program was far more than I ever expected. For years my weight fluctuated up-and-down with the seasons and I could not keep my self interested in any exercise plan that I enjoyed or that seemed to work for me. With this program I soon learned that being and feeling healthy is more about food and lifestyle CHOICES and becoming educated on all areas of daily living. I realize this is a process and I am still learning what works for me and my family. We have enjoyed trying new products and recipes that are available but have never once felt pressured to use. Again, it is all about CHOICES And what works for each individual. Thank you, Rebel Health Revolution, for what I hope to be a lifelong and life-changing experience.”

“When asked what is the most significant change for me that’s difficult. I don’t know if I can even get through writing this without bawling.  When I first came to Carissa…I had literally tried EVERY diet out there known to man.  I had spent our hard earned money on things that never made a difference.  I wasn’t disciplined enough to just get going.  Did I know that eating better and working out would get me results?  Sure I did.  That’s a no brainer.  However, it just wasn’t there for me.  I was in a dark place.  A very dark place but wore a smile on my face.  A very fake smile.  Sometimes people just go through the motions.  Looking at my life one would think…she is so blessed – what does she have to be sad about?  I have 5 AMAZING kids and one that almost killed me and him but we survived.  My marriage is strong because I am married to a Godly man that loves me more than you could ever imagine.  My kids are healthy and successful and all around good humans.  But I was incredibly unhappy.  I hated everything about myself.  I hated most that I knew exactly what to do to make it better and literally just couldn’t.  Carissa shined a ray of hope in our first meeting.  She really made me take a good, hard look at myself. Deep down I was drowning.  She reminded me that I am human. She taught me how incredibly powerful the mind is.  She helped me to find a joy that I hadn’t felt in YEARS.  It was this mindset that kicked me into high gear.  Do I fall short?  Absolutely.  So many times.  But I am to the point in my life that I know in order to continue being awesome me….I have to keep going.  I know how good it feels to have the scale numbers dropping.  But it’s even more amazing to know how good it feels to love myself again.  My faith in God was restored once again.  God has been a powerful driving force for me as well.  I learned the importance of having faith and being happy.  Like I said…I am no where near exactly where I want to be BUT I am a work in progress.  And that work continues every. single. day.
I will continue to say that people often asked me….what exactly does Carissa do for you?  It’s so hard to put into words.  Take the leap.  I have not once regretted it.”

“Carissa’s tools and program have helped me understand my body’s metabolism, and gave me life changing skills to shed weight (40 lbs)  and keep it off after 6 months. Her no non-sense approach helped me get my gut healthy and understand how to keep it healthy. She was incredibly,  only a text message away all along the way. Being a 50 year old male, she guided me with the needed tools, therefore I could understand my diet choices and consequences. “

Thank You Carissa!!

“I began working with Carissa after years and years of dieting. I had it up to my ears in dieting and had a very unhealthy relationship with food. I desperately wanted to shift into a healthy lifestyle rather than a “diet.” I needed a guide on the side while I took control of my health through healthy freezer meal prep, finding the importance of multivitamins and gut health, sleep, using more organic products, and exercise. A few weeks ago, I set a goal to run an entire 5K without stopping and exceeded my goal time. I’m even learning to plant a veggie garden in the backyard now so I have easy access to organic vegetables all of the time!! Thanks to Carissa, I’ve started to love my body and nourish it with the foods I need, rather than constantly think of restricting myself.”

”I had tried so many things on the market to achieve my health and weight goals, but I would rarely see results, so I would get discouraged and quit. I always felt like I had wasted a lot of money and just couldn’t lose any weight. When I reached out to Carissa I was hoping this would be the key, and it was! My 2 main goals were to fit back into all my jeans, and lose 10lbs. I achieved fitting back into my jeans within 5 weeks and hit my weight goal at 10weeks! Not only did Carissa help me be successful physically, she also helped me walk through things in my life spiritually and emotionally as well. I am so thankful for Carissa’s coaching, her wealth of knowledge and her caring heart!” 

“I initially reached out to Carissa in May, 2018 as I was getting married in July and wanted to look and feel great on my wedding day. Carissa laid out a solid plan for me and her approach looked at all areas of my life. To be honest, at that time I heard what she was saying in regards to all areas of my life but I guess I somewhat ignored it. I knew exactly what it was going to take to follow her guidance. My vision was tunnel vision and I needed to get into THAT dress. Fast forward to July and there I was in that dress feeling my absolute best. I was proud of myself as I didn’t cheat and I followed her plan to a T-even on the four trips to Denver and California I had made during that time!

Fast forward again to spring of 2019. Yuck. It was a very dark time for me. Mike and I had lost a baby and I was working and coaching full time. I gave myself zero time to grieve and quite frankly I was mad. I was mad about time. I was mad at the weather. I just wanted to go outside and take a walk and feel the sun on my face. I was mad that the world just seemingly went on without me. I was mad I hadn’t paid a bit more attention to what Carissa had said in regards to “all of my areas.”

Fast forward again to fall/winter 2019. The sun came out and I took the initiative again to read out to Carissa. I admitted I needed to back up and review me and get honest with myself.

When you take the time to get to know you and be fully honest with yourself a shift happens. Are you going to repeat or are you going to evolve? Whatever season you are going through, Carissa will push you to be your best self. How do you want to show up? You will be surprised with how fast things evolve when you show up on a regular basis. I took a look at my patterns with Carissa’s help and learned far more about myself than I could have on my own doing. Even in the midst of a pandemic we can see the promise of spring. Green grass, buds on trees, polished toes, Easter-He is Risen. Carissa will push you in the most loving of ways. Never an ounce of judgement, but rather delicate yet sometimes challenging pushes. You have nothing to lose but everything to gain with Carissa’s guidance and wisdom.”
