I have always been a very active person. In high school, I was the athlete. I was captain of the surf team, on varsity swim and varsity dive, and was always considered to be "in shape." After high school, my weight fluctuated during the off-season of swim & dive. In February 2012, I got hurt snowboarding and had to go to urgent care. When they took my weight, I wanted to die. I was the heaviest I have ever been. Although I had already started to change my eating habits, thanks to a nutrition class I was taking in college, I had no guidance as to what or how much to eat. Several of my family members were seeing BioIntelligent Wellness and had amazing results. Although somewhat skeptical - because, after all, I was in a nutrition class and was learning a lot and felt like I was already making the right choices - I decided to give BioIntelligent Wellness a call. Long story short, my lifestyle and eating habits have made a complete turn around. BioIntelligent Wellness simply looked at the choices I was already making and tweaked them to adjust to my personal needs. I don’t feel like I had to sacrifice anything but change some of my food choices and increase my protein. Also, BioIntelligent Wellness noticed my acne was bad and made recommendations to my diet to help clear my skin. After only 6 weeks in working with BioIntelligent Wellness my skin is clearer, I have dropped close to 20 lbs, and about 15% body fat. Being a swim coach, I feel that it is very important to be a good example for my athletes. I want them to be able to reach their full potential, and I know they can't without the right nutrition and exercise. Nutrition is my new passion, and I look forward to learning all I can from BioIntelligent Wellness . This is not a diet, but a life-changing program. BioIntelligent Wellness makes it fool proof. She is so amazing, and I could never pay her back for what she has taught me.

I went to see BioIntelligent Wellness hoping she could help me better my eating so I could slowly learn better habits, lose weight, and just get healthier. Well there is no way that I could ever thank her enough for her guidance and support. She continues to teach me every time I see her. What I thought would be smart eating was not smart for me. This is exactly what I needed, someone who cares and personalized something that would work for me. I will never be able to say thank you enough. This is exactly what I needed, someone who cares and personalized something that would work for me.

I decided to see BioIntelligent Wellness because of how quickly she helped my wife to find a real solution to her chronic digestive problems. I’m almost 50 and I’ve been seriously overweight for over 15 years so I didn’t know if I could ever really lose my excess weight and restore my health and energy to the levels I wanted. However, BioIntelligent Wellness made it seem easy. She started by investigating the causes of my weight gain and my specific food needs, then she developed a custom approach that let me choose how fast I would lose the weight. I chose to be aggressive and with her guidance. I’ve been able to lose 75 pounds in 5 months. I was amazed at how quickly I got results from making just a few simple lifestyle changes. What at first seemed impossible quickly became a reality. I never imagined I would be able to cut back on my usual comfort foods and start eating “healthy food”, but BioIntelligent Wellness approach and guidance made it easy, and now I actually enjoy eating the right way. When friends and coworkers ask me ‘what my secret is’, I tell them I found someone who really knows what they’re talking about and I listened to them. If they let me know that they are not just curious, but are really serious about improving their health, I tell them to call BioIntelligent Wellness.

For ten years I ate "healthy" and exercised five days per week. "Healthy" eating included whole wheat, oats, low fat, low protein choices. If I really focused I could lose two and a half pounds in six weeks. However, if I became frustrated and unfocused because of minimal results I would rebound and gain the weight back in two to three days. After years of an unsuccessful eating and exercise regimen, I heard of a Nutritionist with a "different" approach. BioIntelligent Wellness is not a Registered Dietician (RD) but a Clinical Nutritionist (CN), two very different certifications. Through blood analysis, BioIntelligent Wellness can determine if you have any hormonal imbalances (males or females), as well as whether you are allergic or sensitive to certain food groups. In my case, I was completely "sensitive" to the so called "healthy" carbohydrate food group that includes all the whole wheat and oat variety of choices that National Nutritional Guidelines support for everyone! Instead, there are many unfamiliar alternatives that work for me. I also need to eat lots of protein and certain vegetables. Consequently, I lost twenty pounds and I am never hungry! I highly recommend BioIntelligent Wellness. Her knowledge is so effective because every client is different!

I was a 55 yr. old woman who was doing anything and everything to lose the 30 pounds I gained after a medical issue. I even allowed my doctor to convince me I needed a psychological consult. I spent two years of wasted time and co-pays, not to mention trying medications that were not healthy. I felt like a helpless hostage to the medical system. After one visit with BioIntelligent Wellness , I was empowered to get control of my health issues. It was not easy but well worth the effort. The learning experience alone was and continues to e priceless. I know my body's needs and how to meet them. As a mother of two teenagers, I am always on the go, which can lead to bad eating. I am prepared now with healthy snacks and know how to ask restaurants to cook what I can eat. I am cooking healthier meals for my family. The big test came when my family went to Disneyland. We were there from opening to closing. I did not break my food plan at all. BioIntelligent Wellness makes following the plan easy. She is always there for support and questions. If there were anythings I just could not do, she was there with an alternate plan. I have lost 31 pounds and 3 sizes. It took 7 weeks to accomplish this. I am still on the eating plan and have been for 4 months. I am sleeping well and tolerate exercise without losing breath. I have recommended BioIntelligent Wellness to all my friends and family and even a few strangers that I have struck up conversations with. She is amazing.

Before working with BioIntelligent Wellness I didn't understand why I was always sick and how come I felt crazy all the time. I really struggled to keep myself healthy and stable eating what I thought was a fairly balanced diet of "health" foods. After years of multiple doctor visits, ER visits, and some psychiatric care, they empowered me to take charge of my health. Now, I'm starting to lose weight, my skin has cleared up, my stomach problems are gone, and I've felt the most stable in my moods than I have in about 10 years. I prepare meals once or twice a week for the whole week so I'm not poor making impromptu food choices, I work out 3-4 days a week doing various activities, and I sleep all the night through. In addition, Cat is wonderful to work with! She is spunky, creative, and extremely practical. She meets you where YOU are. She works with you along the way, never guilting you and encouraging you to let go of your own self-shame. It's inspiring. Cat is graceful and yet energized and ready to see you succeed in your customized program. I have recommended her to many of my friends and family members as well as strangers in grocery stores, fitness clubs, and even restaurants!

My daughter has been diagnosed with ADHD, OCD, and ODD. She has been to two therapists, a psychiatrist, a specialty chiropractor, and a behavioral vision doctor. Physicians have started using words like Tourettes, and Rapid Cycle Bipolar Disorder. At my wits end, I turned to BioIntelligent Wellness . Through her expertise and perseverance, we were finally able to find the proper diagnosis! It turns out she was being poisoned by her food. She has a condition called Casomorphin. She was getting "high" off dairy products and then crashing, repeatedly! I enjoy my child now, and she feels so much better. She used to tell me that she couldn't help the way she was acting. She was absolutely right. Words cannot begin to express my gratitude for BioIntelligent Wellness and her knowledge and instinct. I will be forever grateful!

BioIntelligent Wellness is amazing to work with. She helped me to change habits that I had convinced myself would never change. Before working with BioIntelligent Wellness , I enjoyed 3 to 5 cups of my morning coffee with vanilla creamer…usually with more than one serving of sugary Coffeemate in each cup. While I knew how many extra calories I was consuming, I never thought about the implications of all that sugar being the first thing I put in my body. BioIntelligent Wellness convinced me to give Vanilla Stevia a shot and after a few days I decided that it was a good enough replacement…even though for the first 30 days, I really missed the creaminess of the sugary creamer. BioIntelligent Wellness told me I could try adding unsweetened Coconut Milk, which I did for a bit before deciding that really I was fine with just the Stevia. In the few instances where I’ve thought I would have a “treat” and have one cup of coffee with Coffeemate (like on a Sunday morning when I’m lounging around reading), I’ve found that it’s actually too sweet and I dump it out. Black Coffee with Stevia is the new me! It has been almost a year since BioIntelligent Wellness helped me make this change (along with making protein the first thing that goes into my body in the morning…either via a protein shake or a few nuts!) and now I only drink 2 cups of coffee with Vanilla Stevia every day. While this seems like a minor achievement to some, it’s been a habit of mine for over 15 years and this change really impacted my beliefs about what I could and couldn’t change about myself and my relationship with food. I’ve even considered giving up coffee completely…which if you would have asked me a year ago if that was ever possible I would have laughed and told you “absolutely not…never going to happen!”. BioIntelligent Wellness approach was exactly what I needed to open the door to real, lifelong change to a NUMBER of my very longstanding, unhealthy eating habits. I will be forever grateful to her for finally getting me to get my butt through that door!! Also, with the foundation she helped me create, I’ve been able to lose 40lbs (and still going!)!

Our Survivors recently put on a free public workshop on the topic for Nutrition/Diabetes. We are proud to have BioIntelligent Wellness Nikolic as our speaker. Her presentation & expertise knowledge she shared, has given us new ideas to change our ways in eating, & living a healthy life. We had a role play on what we usually eat, & she opened our eyes in the importance of balancing our intake by either adding, or removing certain foods to level our daily meals. She mentioned that exercise is of great importance but you don’t have to push yourself but do it gradually. It was a wonderful experience to find out a lot about our bodies & how to prevent getting diabetes, or change our diets for those who are diabetic. Also to know that if we do this change we may be able to stop taking our diabetic medications. We are truly grateful for her & look forward to working with her again.

BioIntelligent Wellness helped me get fit and ready for my second pregnancy, and thank goodness she did help me get ready, it ended up being a twin pregnancy. I never knew how fast muscle mass could grow and weight could come just by eating right and eating more and working out less and correctly. I now have one year old twin boys who are healthy and happy due to the steps BioIntelligent Wellness taught me to take for myself and my family. Happy living!
