The CHIP program has changed my life from the inside out. The quote from Hippocrates is true today as it was back then – “Let food be thy medicine and medicine thy food”. The CHIP program touches on every aspect of your life. And the amount of research that goes into each class is staggering. I am a Foodie and thought it would be the end of that yet have realized it is only the beginning of new creations and taste sensations. Personally, in four months, I saw my high cholesterol, high LDL, high glucose plummet without any medication. I suffered from an unhealthy gut aka Irritable Bowel Syndrome – diarrhea always and it is now GONE. I have snored most of my life and its GONE. I had many aches and pains in my joints, they are GONE. The CHIP program is a way to heal your insides and your exterior responds, my extra weight just melted away without even concentrating on it. This is now a way of life for me and I will be forever grateful to my CHIP facilitators, Heather Rittgers and Barb Maring.

I have to share my experience with a program called Cedar Rapids CHIP, a lifestyle enrichment program. In only eight weeks my weight dropped by 8%. My blood pressure dropped by 25%. My cholesterol dropped 15%. I have more energy and clarity of thought for business and my family. I feel great! Most importantly, these changes are doable for me for the rest of my life. To be your best in business you need to look at everything. Don’t let things get out of balance. The price of ignoring your health is way too high!

Heather is very knowledgeable on a variety of eating plans. She practices what she teaches others. She has helped me learn more about and adhere to a plant-based diet. She helped me make modifications for my busy life. She is awesome!

Heather Rittgers is amazing to work with. Once I got over my quick-fix mentality–it’s all starting to come together for me. I feel as if this will be a lifetime transformation. Heather really cares about people–it shows.

I have known Heather for a couple years and within that time I have witnessed her passion for lifelong learning and helping others experience optimal health. She has been able to restore her own health and is so generous in sharing her knowledge helping others to reach their health goals and thrive. Heather is gentle in her wellness coaching and will be right there with you to support you on your journey to a balanced healthy life.

Since starting CHIP program 8 weeks ago, I have lost 14 pounds, without feeling like I am on a diet. The changes that I have made in the foods I eat will be a forever change for me. I no longer obsess about what I can or can’t eat for my next meal – and I am losing weight without counting calories, servings or “points”. It’s been very freeing, to not worry about “my diet” and still have success. The CHIP classes are educational, and motivating. Heather and Barb are so knowledgeable on the program. They make themselves accessible, and both are willing to answer questions and provide encouragement. I absolutely believe that we can all LIVE MORE by embracing the CHIP Lifestyle.
