–Zack (Baltimore, Maryland)

“Perfect reality Donna. The Lord knew you were destined to help so many others through your insightful words of wisdom and your generous heart to share them with others. He knew you had ‘The You Evolution™’ locked inside of you.

You are an inspiring lady and we are all very lucky God saw fit to share you with us!”

It is good to know that real love is possible – not without its ups and downs – but it IS REAL. It’s not just a story made by Walt Disney anymore. It is within both of you and I am privileged to have this glimpse.”

Good stuff.”
–Brendan (Saratoga Springs, New York)

“I can’t help but imagine if nobody shared HOPE & HEALTH with me 6 years ago. Where would I be today? (….medications, poor sleep, no energy, acid reflux, joint pain, depression, 48+ pounds heavier… ugh!!) To be candid, I thought they were offering me a way to lose weight. What ended up happening is they offered me HOPE, which turned into HEALTH, and that HEALTH turned into HELPING OTHERS!!” ~Donna Smaldone, Certified Health Coach DonnaSmaldone.Optavia.com
