This was completely different. Davina changed my life. I’m now 18 pounds down and my body feels soo much better. The greatest gain for me wasn’t the weight loss. It was learning about my body and what made it do the things it did. She helped me manage my stress and hormone levels, and she taught me what foods were healthy. I am able to live a healthier lifestyle thanks to Davina."
