I was diabetic, I had high blood pressure and cholesterol through the roof.
I was working a lot, crazy hours and not paying attention.
I went on a journey with Laure and I'm so blessed and grateful that I did because I'm pretty sure she saved my life.
I lost 50 lbs and I've kept it off.
[In my last checkup] my doctor came out clapping.
I have reversed my diabetes, lowered my blood pressure to absolutely normal.
Do this for yourself.
I lost 12 lbs in 3 months.
Learning how to take care of me not just food wise but mentally and emotionally and learning it was okay to do so is what was important.
I loved the lifelong tips for eating easy to remember.
The cooking classes help solidify what I was learning and gave me options for things I needed to eat.
What I learned helped my whole family.
All my wins are about the breakthroughs that I had, the heart space that opened up for me.
The things that you taught us in the program really facilitate us being able to make delicious foods quickly.
The inflammation in my gut and my whole body has decreased tremendously. I've gone from struggling to walk half a mile due to arthritis in my feet to walking 2 miles a day at double my earlier pace.
I'm confidently planning a trip to Greece this summer.
My overall health and energy have improved remarkably. And I continued to lose weight over the next 2 years of a total of 110 lbs.
Pre-Laure, I used to make large dry salads with grilled chicken and cold raw vegetables with some version of a changed-up salad dressing for lunch, which would momentarily satisfy me. After all, that was what I was “supposed” to eat, but inevitably, a very short while later, I would be craving something sweet—usually ice cream or a light mocha frappuccino. I was so convinced this was the path to feeling good, feeling trim and losing weight (“lose 5 pounds” had been the first wish on my list of New Year’s Resolutions for as long as I could remember).
In my mind, because I had just eaten a “dietetic” lunch, I was clearly entitled to indulge in dessert especially since I was headed to the gym the following day and for the rest of the week for that matter.
But alas, nothing ever changed. The bloat, the belly aches and just feeling pretty blah was part of my every day. This is what I thought was normal for someone my age.
With Laure by my side (and on my side), I quickly learned what foods worked for me, which was pretty much everything I wasn’t eating. Making these easy changes in my daily meal routine left me so satisfied that those daily heavy and cold sweet cravings went away.
Changing up my food choices while understanding how and when I should eat was just the beginning of all the other amazing things that would follow. I soon began sleeping through the night, said good-bye to constipation, felt more energized, and I am now able to manage stress more effectively and more efficiently.
My atopic dermatitis that would appear in times of stress has not veered its itchy self in over 11 months (this is huge for me).
Since working with Laure and incorporating simple changes in my food habits and lifestyle, I physically feel great with a whole new mindset filled with a renewed sense of gratitude and purpose.
Before the group coaching program, I felt stuck. I felt like I needed guidance on how to lose weight and be healthy, but I wasn't sure if someone other than myself could ultimately be that support.
There are so many coaches and diets and programs out there that claim to help you with your eating plans and weight loss goals. What I didn't know was that I did need the outside support--it just wasn't those other programs, it was Laure!
The group coaching program helped me reach my goals by providing a safe and inspiring place to learn how to care for my body at a comfortable and digestible pace (no pun intended)!
I lost 18 pounds! I realized that I CAN cook. I don't need recipes when I follow Laure's 5-step method with any vegetables I want or have around.
I have less judgment towards myself and more confidence. I understand the true importance of self-care. The yoga sessions were amazing--a practice for anywhere, anytime.
I felt on the path to FREEDOM.
A major understanding I have now is that I am important, not just to be there for others (like the often quoted story about putting on your own oxygen mask first), but to be there, be here, for MYSELF.
I had never participated in something like this before and I felt guilty for wanting to do something more for myself.
The group coaching helped me to be accountable to myself and the others in the group. The weekly calls and check ins helped me to stay focused and on task. I enjoyed sharing what I learned with my group and I looked forward to the progress we all made each week.
I lost about 12 pounds that have not returned. I learned a lot of healthy recipes, and I enjoy cooking for myself and others. Prior to the program I hadn't been cooking that much. I had not had too much experience with vegan/vegetarian cooking. I learned how to use spices and flavors in a new way. My digestion issues have gotten a lot better.
I am more aware of what I am putting into my mouth and how it affects me. How I feel afterwards and the next day. I am planning out meals for the week. I am eating more vegetables and less meat.
I am in a much better place in regards to my relationship to food. I didn't realize I was a stress eater and an emotional eater before. I am more active and I am making smarter choices each day.
I like that you held us accountable. When we didn't follow through on our assignments or homework. You reminded us why we did the program and why it was important to us. You have a breadth of knowledge and are able to explain it in a simple way that is easy to understand.
I control what goes into my body and I now know how it affects me. Which foods I need to avoid and which foods I need more of. I am perfectly capable of having a healthy digestion and losing weight. I also learned that the best investment you can make is into yourself.
I absolutely loved the vegan baking, it was amazing. I now enjoy every aspect, chopping the fruit, combining the spices. It has become very therapeutic for me. Thank you for the time you spent sharing your knowledge and love of Ayurveda. I truly learned lessons that I know I will use for the rest of my life!
In shifting my behaviors, definitely I'm calmer and as a result of being calmer, I'm clearer.

I felt like a part of me was always trapped in a lifestyle that wasn't helping me reach my potential. The western way of dieting has not been helping.
Professor of Electrical Engineering
I went from fighting with myself to working with myself, to alleviating the worst things that have been bothering me. It managed to change my story about the relationship between myself and my body.

It tastes really good, restaurant quality food that I made, that's a big deal!
Nefertiti Jewelry Designer
For me prior to the program I never really had a path that was sustainable for long term weight loss. The major win for me is the sustainability, it’s actually changing my habits. The best thing about working with you for me has been experiencing your truth. Having the tools to live a life of good health and sustainability is what this program offered me.
Co-Founder Yoga Life West Indies
The best thing about working with you is that you really brought the program in a way that we could say yes to it without putting any pressure. We could feel that we win every time.
I really know what to put in my plate and it’s amazing because I can just relax now.
I want to thank you so much for bringing this quality of life and it’s something that everybody can do.
Co-Founder & Chief Compassion Officer at Dovecot Farm
Before the program, I felt a sense of overwhelm about so many different dietary options screaming for my attention...
Physically, I felt bloated so my body was communicating an out of balance...
The community in the group coaching program helped me stay on track and understand that we can all be resistant to change!
The 5 specific changes I experienced as a result of this program are: less bloated, feeling of well-being, more compassionate towards myself and others, more attentive to my body and better skin. Elimination has improved a lot, so of course I feel happier about that as I have always struggled with constipation...
What I like best about working with Laure is her authenticity. She has a huge amount of expertise, experience and compassion for those she works with...
Laure’s program re-ignited my interest in cooking again!
I think that you need a 12 week program to make the necessary changes…it requires absolute commitment to see results. I enjoyed the structure and the routine of the program.
The Go Coach
Your program name is perfect. A “lighter you”’is what I feel. I squealed with delight every time I opened my fridge and pantry after our call! Thank you for doing what you do & sharing your gift. You’ve changed my life in a big way, Laure. I am so grateful.
The Brand Artisan
I’ve lost 31 lbs in 4 months. It has been easy to flow through the whole process and add something new one step at a time. I not only lost weight, I gained clarity and peace. Working with Laure has been incredible.
Group Fitness Coach
My intention in starting this program was not to lose weight however I ended up losing about 20 lbs and I feel better physically than I have felt in years.
My skin is more moist, body is finally at a comfortable weight and more flexible/balanced.
The most noticeable change in my overall health is my body’s ability to digest food. I am able to eat some foods I would have never touched before such as beans, quinoa, oatmeal.
This program proved to me that the body and mind are directly connected. The shift in mood, energy and emotions upon beginning this program was literally life changing.
If you have manifested Laure in your life, I’m so happy for you!
In 6 months I went from being stressed out, physically uncomfortable and too busy to cook, to taking care of me, putting myself first and enjoying cooking and eating for my body type.
I watched as the belly got smaller, my skin got clearer and my temperament got calmer.
Due to all of these things, my life as a whole started changing and I am so grateful to Laure and this program.
I have lost 20 pounds and it came off and stayed off.
Laure guided me through the patterns and habits that were so deeply ingrained in my psyche.
My relationship with food has changed forever.
I am beyond grateful to Laure for all that she has given me, but the greatest gift of all was that by learning to love food in a real way, I have also discovered how to love myself in a real way.
Dr. Neelima Reddy
I have lost 20 lbs in 6 months. I Feel healthier, have more energy and confidence!
The specific feature I liked best was Laure’s intuitive ability to use the mind body approach- to create more awareness with respect to eating patterns which are mood related.
I would definitely recommend your program. It makes absolute sense from the physiological point of view.
Founder Delray Inner Balance
Working with Laure Carter, in her program, helped me to uncover personal habits that were contributing to my current state of unrest.
With so much information on Ayurvedic practices, Laure made it easy to apply them to my specific needs.
When I followed all to most of the practices, I found a significant difference within myself and my body that has lasted beyond the program.
