Since turning 40, Margaret has struggled with her weight, hormonal issues, brain fog, and hot flashes. After years of trying different methods to lose weight, including consulting with various doctors, trying the newest fad diets, buying expensive and ineffective weight loss supplements, working with hormone replacement therapy, taking prescription medications, and going through a partial hysterectomy, she found The Galveston Diet and has never looked back.
Margaret created new habits, lost 15 pounds, made exercise a priority, and shifted her mindset from "eat less, move more" to "did I eat enough fat today"! She's thrilled to be a Certified Galveston Diet Coach and to be on this journey with you. Margaret lives in Glen Rock, NJ, with her husband and two boys.
When Sara turned 50, she thought “Look at me…I am in the best shape of my life, raised two amazing girls on my own, one in college and one on her way, have a great career that I love, and am in a good place.” Suddenly perimenopausal symptoms hit hard including severe bloating, painful skin, exhaustion and sadness. An ankle sprain from a fall down the stairs and torn rotator cuff derailed her daily workouts, and the pounds came on. Once back at the gym and getting back to running, Sara found that diet and exercise was not working to get her back to where she was. A friend who is an OB/GYN shared one of Dr. Haver’s videos on her Facebook timeline. She thought “this woman is me.” Having studied physiology, biochemistry, and nutrition and writing her honors thesis on the importance of specific fatty acids in formulas for hand-rearing orphaned Harbor Seal pups, she immediately realized that what Dr. Haver was saying made sense. Her bloating improved within days of 16:8 intermittent fasting; she then signed up for The Galveston Diet and has never felt better!
Sara is a veterinarian in private practice for over 27 years. She received a Certificate in Nutrition and Healthy Living from Cornell University. She resides in Canton, MA, and has two daughters. Sara is thrilled to be able to help guide you on your journey to reaching your goals.
Jamie has always been active and strived to eat well but has struggled with an extra 10-20 pounds her whole life. Jamie was diagnosed with Celiac in 2004 and dairy intolerance in 2010.

She has been a student of nutrition and wellness for years, and with The Galveston Diet has found a solution that has allowed her to reach her weight loss goals while allowing for the necessary substitutions to meet her dietary needs.
