Wellness with May Anne
Hi There! My name is May Anne Jordens-LaFlamme.
I’m a Registered Holistic Nutritionist, the owner of Wellness with May Anne and the In-House Nutritionist at Peterborough Maximized Living.
I’m also a busy mom, a wife and an entrepreneur, and trust me - I know how difficult it can be to balance the busyness of life with health, good nutrition and fitness!
You see, for the first five years of my sons' life I was a single mom who was working full-time, with a lot of self-pressure added to the mix.
I struggled with taking care of my own needs because it always seemed like there was a lot to be done and there was so much to be resonsible for.
Long story short, I ended up with burned out adrenals, IBS, candida overgrowth, anxiety and depression (all caused by stress).
Everyday around 2pm I felt like crawling under my desk for a nap and I craved sweets and starches to 'wake me up.'
I hated how I was looking and feeling and felt like life was passing me by.
I was too exhausted at the end of the day to put much effort into cooking and was mostly choosing foods based on convenience, even though deep inside I really wanted to eat healthier.
On top of that, I witnessed the life-long struggle of a loved one trying diet after diet for years, with only temporary results. Ultimately, I developed a distorted body image and a love-hate relationship with food.
Maybe you can relate?
Little did I realize with my food choices, even though I had good intentions and thought I was doing right by my body, I was creating the perfect storm for a blood sugar imbalance by cutting out the very foods that would keep my energy levels up, keep me fuller, longer, curb the cravings and keep my hormones and my mood balanced.
When I began studying natural nutrition, I realized why everything that I had been doing was not working for me.
You see, there were a few layers to my problem.
By making a commitment to changing how I ate, making the necessary Lifestyle changes (stress, sleep & exercise) and shifting my Mindset, I was able to minimize my cravings for things like sweets and pizza, had WAY more energy and felt healthier than I had in years. I was able to maintain a weight I felt comfortable with - all without diet foods.
Now, I look and feel better than I did in my 20’s and 30’s. I'm a happier and better person to those around me and I'm so grateful to have found the strategies to get me unstuck, without restricting myself of everything that tastes good!
These experiences have put me on a mission. I want to make it simple and do-able for other women, like yourself, who are struggling with trying to figure out HOW to eat to lose weight and feel good - without giving up everything they love or spending hours in the kitchen!
I want to help them transform their well-being so they LOOK great, FEEL fantastic, and still be able to enjoy food!

Never again will you decline an invitation to a social event because you’re self-conscious. Life happens and there are many reasons why you may have put on 10, 15 or even an extra 100 pounds.
This program is your rescue jacket. You’re going to indulge in delicious, whole foods and lose weight at the same time. You will feel physically great, look better than you have in years and regain that confident smile. Your social life will improve and so will your health.
So what’s the catch?
Your commitment. We provide you with the magic wand to weight loss. Well, sort of. Our magic wand is a series of tools and steps that are easy to understand and implement into everyday life- no matter how busy you are!
Here's What's Included:
This science-based program is different because it focuses on LIFESTYLE CHANGES, not theories that don’t apply to real life.
Your commitment to this program, and your health and appearance, has to be driven by an internal desire to be the best you possible.
Obesity doesn’t just come with an unfortunate social stereotype. It is also a life-threatening disease. Being overweight means you’re at a higher risk for a heart attack, diabetes, stroke, fractures… the list goes on and on.
Not only are these types of health events scary- they’re costly! They also make you lose your independence and your freedom to do the things you love to do.
You can do this!
You have the power to follow the program’s simple and yummy meal plans. The done-for-you recipe book and food swap list are empowering and easy to follow. Your food journal helps you identify and correct unhealthy eating habits.
You also will receive real-world grocery lists that can be applied to any neighborhood grocery.
You won’t have to spend extra money and drive to the end of the Earth to find the foods recommended by this program. I provide an easy-to-buy guide for whole foods that promote weight loss and are offered at your regular grocery store.
The trailblazing program also delivers Educational Handouts. You will not have to question “why” I am suggesting certain foods or techniques. I provide the complimentary information so you not only follow this program, but you understand it!
You are not alone with this program.
While you are your only advocate in life, I am going to provide you with unlimited support. This program comes with your own cheerleader that will encourage you during the good times and support you when times become stressful or temptation rears its ugly head!
You have to be in charge of you! The weight loss isn’t going to come off simply because you buy this program!
Commit to a healthier life that allows positive energy and good things to come your way. When you feel good, positive energy follows and amazing things happen to you!
Think about it… When you’re having a bad day it always seems like there is one thing after another. When you have a great day and you feel good, you attract so much more out of life! You sparkle, you shine and you’re building great habits for your future!
This program will also help you to:
• Ramp up metabolism
• Decrease PMS and menopausal symptoms
• Support the cardiovascular system
• Heal digestive system complaints

Remember, this is a revolutionary lifestyle change- not a quick fad diet that only leaves you with rebound weight gain.
Your health is worth way more than the affordable cost of the program.

May Anne’s program was an eye-opener for me; I realized how much easier it was to stay on track with meal-planning ahead of time and how much better I would feel for it. The scale moved and the stomach bloat decreased! May Anne was a voice of encouragement and fresh ideas for making the change towards a healthier lifestyle. Health isn’t all or nothing- treating yourself is a must! Thank you!!

Since doing May Anne’s Slim Down program, I’ve noticed a change in my moods, along with weight loss. I find getting up in the morning easier.
The Slim Down program has influenced my life by making meal planning so much easier, and I can eat healthy foods to help make day to day life significantly better.
What I liked most about the program was talking about how certain things about life can have effects on a healthy lifestyle. Also, having the meal plans makes getting dinner planned way easier!
I learned how to properly fuel my body, so I can lose weight and live a happier life.
I would recommend the program to a friend or family member because it has helped me so much with planning meals, and the weekly tasks gives me a small task to do in my down time. A down-time that I used to fill with eating.

Since doing May Anne’s Slim Down Program I’m able to accept that I’m not going to be perfect every day, and that tomorrow is a new day.
I’ve struggled my whole life with weight issues but the one on one meetings with May Anne really helped to put things into perspective with my eating. I’m a very negative person, but my 6 weeks with May Anne has influenced my thinking and I’ve started to break my old habit.
The shopping list and meal plans are so helpful. I really like the fact that meals can be switched with others.
I’ve incorporated more fats into my diet, as well as learning different ‘hacks’ for some breakfast and snack ideas.
I would recommend this program to everyone. May Anne is very knowledgeable, easy to relate to and is always positive. The fact that she has gone through some of what I have is helpful because she can reflect on her experience.
I like the aspects of the different modules and how everything is connected, like stress and sleep, and ways to improve your overall wellbeing.
I wouldn’t change anything about The Slim Down Program. It’s outstanding as it is.

I wanted to participate in May Anne’s 6-Week Slim-Down program to improve my health. Since doing the program, I experienced weight loss, more energy, enlarged on what I already knew about nutrition and health, and I feel better for focusing on my self-worth and improving my health.
I am also more aware of what I am eating and what I shop for. I got several new recipes as well as tried foods I had never tried before.
I liked the variety as well as being able to exchange a food for what I had on hand, providing it was the same nutritional value. It’s a good program, easy to follow and well presented. I’ve already told a number of people about the 6-Week Slim-Down Program!
- Pat J., Keene
I participated in the 6-Week Slim-Down program to lose weight and to change my eating habits. Since doing the program I have more energy and I have learned other alternatives to choose from, as I do not like certain foods. I also have a better understanding of food combinations.
What I liked most about the Program was the list of alternate foods and the introduction to foods I have not had in a very long time. I learned that day to day choices make a big difference.
I would recommend this Program to a friend or family member because May Anne is clear and approachable. It is obvious that she practices what she preaches and you can see her enthusiasm!
- Vanessa E.
After doing the 6-Week Slim-Down Program with May Anne I now strive for a healthier lifestyle. I learned ways to curb cravings, how to make healthier choices with snacks and to develop healthier meals. Now, I have less stomach/bowel issues.
I’ve tried several other programs in the past, but I just got tired of using them so the weight eventually crept back. With another program I tried, I got sick of 2 shakes per day.
May Anne’s program was very well laid out and simplified. I absolutely loved the Facebook Lives. Lots of helpful tips!
I would recommend this program to others because May Anne is very knowledgable with healthy living. She presents an easy to follow guide with all the necessary lists to get you on the right path. Her motivation is inspiring!

After doing the 6-Week Slim-Down program with May Anne I have more energy and better eating habits. The program allowed me to move into a healthy eating program that was not overwhelming and was completely achievable. I am now able to maintain the lifestyle confidently on my own.
I like the meal plans and grocery lists and learned that being prepared is key to success. Meal planning was huge for me. I would definitely recommend this program to friends and family members.
- Julie B., Peterborough
I haven’t had a set of weigh scales for a long time. I’m noticing that my clothes are not so snug, and I’m retaining less fluid. As a result, more energy.
I liked the variety of food choices that May Anne shared with us, and the recipes. I enjoyed the weekly emails and I appreciated offers of coaching. I sent emails that were answered. That meant a lot to me.
I’ve learned the importance of eating healthy foods at regular intervals. And I’ve become very aware of how awful I feel the day after I have decided to cheat. Once wasn’t too bad, but two days in a row and I felt miserable. Also, I hadn’t realized the importance of having a protein snack before bedtime.
I would definitely recommend this program, partly because I have known May Anne for many years. She is intelligent, trustworthy, and honest. If she doesn’t have an immediate answer to your question, I am sure she would research to find out. She is kind, mature, respectful and sincere, and she is interested in people.

The positive changes I’ve experienced since doing May Anne’s Slim Down program are weight loss, feeling better and feeling better about myself.
I find that I’m eating better and more regularly. I found the meal plans and grocery shopping list very helpful.
I’ve learned proper portion sizes, the proper foods to eat and that just because a food says that it’s good for you and may seem like it’s good for you, it may not be.
I would recommend the Slim Down program to others because it helped me to lose weight, feel better and have more energy. I have told my friends and family about it.
- Steve Bird, Peterborough
Both myself and my wife are both feeling better since we have been following May Anne’s suggestions.
Since doing the Slim Down program I have lost weight and feel better.
I like the interaction with May Anne, and if there were questions she was able to answer them. I’ve learned healthy alternatives in food and how and where to shop for them.
I would recommend the Slim Down program to friends and family members and I thoroughly enjoyed the program.

When does the course start and finish?
We are going to start on January 21st! Each week for 6 weeks you will receive an email from me with the meal plan, grocery list, food swap list, recipe book and educational handout for the week. I will send the email 3-4 days ahead of time, so you have time to grocery shop for the following week’s groceries.
I don’t necessarily want to lose weight. Will this program still benefit me?
Absolutely! There are MANY health benefits from being on the program, aside from weight loss: Mindset & Lifestyle modules, Ramp up metabolism, Decrease PMS and menopausal symptoms, Support the cardiovascular system, Support digestive system complaints, Improve bowel function, Reduce Stress, Balance Mood, and much more!
The portion sizes can simply be increased in respect to each other as needed.
Do I have to shop at specialty health stores?
No way. You can find all of these foods at your local grocery store.
What kind of foods will I be eating?
Honestly- regular food like meats, fish, veggies, avocados, fruit, etc. (even dark chocolate is on the meal plan!) When I say this program is not a ‘diet’ I mean it! The foods you eat on this program are normal foods that you can continue eating long after the program is finished.
Will I be hungy?
Not on this program! I provide the caloric breakdown and nutrient breakdown for each meal as a guideline, however, we are all unique and have different activity levels and physiology. If you are hungry (and not just wanting to eat out of habit), I encourage you to increase your portion sizes.
What if I’m vegetarian/gluten-free/dairy-free?
If you’re vegetarian, just let me know, and I will send you a vegetarian version of the meal plans and recipe book. A great feature of the program is a “Food Swap List” which includes PLENTY of substitutions for you to swap out to accommodate likes/dislikes or preferences.
This program is for the most part gluten-free and dairy-free, with the exception being some of the foods on the Food Swap list. If you have questions regarding specific foods, just ask me!
Can't I just learn to eat better on my own?
Yes! You certainly could - there are a lot of choices out there for you to try.
If I have questions, who can I contact?
You can contact me with any questions, anytime. The best ways to reach me are either through the private Facebook group or by email: email@example.com
My guess is that if you do nothing, or perhaps try another 'diet' instead, you will be right back in this same position this time next year. You will have possibly lost a bit of weight temporarily, yet will have gained it all back again, and according to statistics you will gain back even more than you lost leaving you feeling even more discouraged.
Remember, that each time you diet, you do more harm to your metabolism, making it harder and harder to lose weight the next time.
Diets don't work! At least not long-term. There's a reason why dieting is a billiion-dollar industry!
Statistics show that over 90% of people who diet gain the weight back and 95% of those people, gain back even MORE than what they lost!
I don't want that for you, and it doesn't have to be that way anymore.
