With Jenny's guidance I embarked on a journey of eating more knowingly. With the LEAP diet we created a plan that has helped me to reduce my cravings and hives. While LEAP takes dedication Jenny is very supportive with all kinds of ideas and solutions. She is very dedicated to her clients. I recommend her highly.

Jenny helped me regain my ability to walk pain free. She suggested the LEAP diet and it worked! She is very knowledgeable and caring and really listens! After just a few months of this diet my body inflammation disappeared and I am so grateful to her.

I've been working with Jenny for almost a year. During that time, she has helped me with several health issues. She has you to complete a very thorough medical history and to provide her with the results of any blood tests. She uses this to help you to create a plan to improve your diet and to suggest new ideas to try as blood levels change. I love it that we spend each session with a recap of how I did with the goals we set the previous session. This is followed by the two of us working together on solutions to whatever parts of my diet need attention. She has helped me to understand that "progress not perfection" is the way to go for the long term. She works with me to plan meals around healthier foods that I really enjoy. I was so excited when my A1C numbers were down based on my most recent blood tests. I have new found respect for incorporating yummy healthy foods plus workouts into my busy schedule.

Jenny has helped me in so many ways! She is very knowledgeable and is a good listener. On our first appointment, she took time to listen to my needs and go through my health history item by item. She made recommendations and customized a plan that was suitable for my digestive system. With her help, along with supplements and an elimination diet based on the LEAP protocol, I have been able to better understand my food sensitivities. My symptoms and cravings have decreased and I feel I have a better grasp on portion control and clean eating. Not to mention, I am losing a few unwanted pounds in the process! I gladly recommend Jenny and Balance Fitness and Nutrition Dietitians to anyone needing dietary support.

first sought Jenny's services as a last resort before being prescribed medication to manage my elevated cholesterol. At my first appointment with Jenny, she reviewed my intake forms and most recent labs from my physician. I was so relieved to hear that I could eat specific foods and take supplements to help lower my cholesterol. This was only the beginning! Jenny recommended MRT testing and the LEAP diet to address my food sensitivities, migraines, and fatigue. The LEAP diet was very strict and tough; however, I felt better within 30 days of adhering to the diet. Months later, I have more energy, better digestion, lower cholesterol, fewer migraines, and no itchy hives from food sensitivities!

After years of being sick, I was referred to a nutritionist by my PCP thinking food could be the cause. I've been uneasy about dieticians in the past, but took a leap of faith (after all, I had tried everything else). I was blessed to land in the care of Jenny Askew at Balance Fitness and Nutrition. Let me be the first to say, I was blown away by her skill/insight, grace, demeanor, and genuine compassion/care. I put all my faith in her and in return, she helped to instill that faith in myself. She would sit and talk with me for HOURS and never let me leave feeling uneasy or without questions answered. I was never one to think 'Food could be making me sick'...but it was. The MRT Food Sensitivity testing showed me that MANY foods I was eating on a daily basis were causing mild to severe reactions in my body. (They showed physically in the form of a burning, itching rash along with many other issues). She decided on a food detox program (LEAP) to help me flush out my system and build it back with only healthy, clean foods. She thoroughly educated me in areas I knew little about. After leading a gluten free lifestyle for months and finishing my detox, I am almost 50 lbs lighter...with barely any migraines or stomach issues, a more positive mind/body & soul, AND completely rash free. She still checks in on my progress and has been a tremendous support during a difficult time. I feel better than I have in YEARS! :) Thanks Dr. Jenny!!! I owe you everything!

For a couple of years I was having intermittent stomach pains and couldn't figure out what was wrong. I wasn't getting any help from my doctors, they just kept telling me I was fine and to eat more vegetables. The pain started to get worse and other symptoms started to arise so I started looking around for alternative solutions. I came across Jenny during my search and after working with her on my LEAP diet to identify what could be causing my irregular dietary patterns and pain, I started to feel better. She was very helpful with meal planning, recipes and overall encouragement. Jenny was responsive to emails and phones whenever I had questions or concerns. I have been feeling better everyday and exploring new recipes. Staying healthy and feeling great is my priority and Jenny helped me tremendously with getting on track

I struggled with migraine headaches on a nearly daily basis for over 35 years and tried many different remedies, both natural and Western medicine "solutions". I've had all sorts of preventive medications prescribed to me, have been under the care of several neurologists, including one who was the top-rated neurologist for headache treatment in the greater Atlanta region until his retirement. I saw multiple chiropractors for years, and had several occipital nerve block treatments as well as having botox injected into my forehead to stop the headaches. Nothing worked. Sometimes these treatments would bring short-term relief, and sometimes they made things worse, but I never felt confident that I wouldn't have a headache on a given day. When a family member would ask if I had a headache, the answers were either "yes" or "not yet". I'm so thankful that we found Jenny. She is very caring and knowledgeable, and helps take the MRT results into account when crafting the allowed food groups for each phase of the diet. I really wasn't optimistic at first that this was going to work, since I've tried so many things before, but I'm so glad my wife talked me into doing this! I'm finally able to go out and about without carrying a variety of pain relievers with me, and can simply say "no" when asked if I have a headache instead of "not yet".

I am so fortunate to have received a personal recommendation to make an appointment with Jenny Askew for a thorough workup and nutrition overhaul! I had been battling IBS, abdominal pain, fatigue, brain fog, and headaches for years, and had been working with an excellent gastroenterologist for 9 months. My gastroenterologist had findings suggesting food sensitivities or allergies, so I decided to turn next to Jenny, whom had already been recommended to me months prior. Jenny started me on my LEAP plan, and at first it was really tough and required extra time in the kitchen, but I started to feel better after the first 10 days. By 3 weeks in, I had more energy than I'd had in years!! I couldn't believe how much better I felt just by removing some of the foods that had been contributing to chronic inflammation and feeling cruddy!! It was literally life changing, giving me more time and energy with my kiddos! Thank you Jenny!

I started working with Jenny after being diagnosed with candida and anxiety. She worked with my doctor to ensure I was getting the right treatment, created a meal plan that would supplement the medications the doctor provided, educated me on what foods were safe to consume and what to avoid, and provided excellent customer service. After a couple of weeks following her advice, both conditions greatly improved. I would not hesitant to work with Jenny again in the future.

I've seen many a dietition throughout Atlanta over the past twenty years, and Jenny is by far the best! I have struggled with mysterious weight gain, migraines, water retention, IBS, and much much more. Through Jenny's dedicated help, all of those symtpoms are on their way to gone, with the LEAP program. I followed the LEAP program for approximately 3 months, and made huge strides. I "strayed" for 2 months and quickly became sick and miserable again, and so I am back with Jenny and LEAP and don't plan on leaving again!! Jenny is very understanding, professional, personable, and caring. She returns calls and emails promptly and thoroughly. I have a treatment team for all my medical issues and Jenny has spoken with other members of this team as she has needed to, so we are all on the same page. Thank you so much Jenny!!

I worked with Jenny Askew with Balance Fitness and Nutrition and had a great experience with the LEAP diet. It involves a lot of dedication, but the results have been amazing! I have been battling with sleep, constipation, and migraine issues for years, and the diet cured all of that with additional bonuses such as a lost of 20lbs, better looking skin, and better leg circulation. Jenny has been very knowledgeable in this process, and attentive to e-mails as questions came up. I would highly recommend the LEAP diet for anyone that is thinking of doing it. It's tough, but SO Worth it!

I chose this company because I wanted improve my health through diet and exercise. It was important to find a Registered Dietitian and I was lucky to locate a great one who is also a sports medicine expert. Located in Alpharetta, GA, she is convenient to the Metro-Atlanta area. Her approach is very personal and she takes the time to become completely familiar with her clients' diets, health issues, physical abilities, preferences, etc. I felt comfortable immediately and didn't feel as though I was being judged, but rather I had a friend who knew how to help me figure out the best way to proceed with a health and fitness plan once we looked at my needs together. She is easy to get in touch with for questions between visits and she makes certain she has all the facts before giving her expert advice. I look forward to seeing my dietitian and know that together we will continue to strengthen my body and improve my health.
