I have listened to you speak with individuals regarding your low carb nutritional program for approximately one year. However, it wasn’t until this spring I actually started to review the materials on your website. What appealed to me was your emphasis on the fact that your program is not a diet, but rather a way of life.
At any rate, this past summer I decided I wanted to become more physically fit and loose a little weight. So I decided to give your program a try, coupled with an increase in physical activity. To be honest, I was skeptical of your program, but I discovered my low carb meals were enjoyable and I did not have to worry about portion control, although I did miss certain items (e.g., good breads, etc.).
Bottom line, three months later I am more mobile than I have been in years and incidentally I have shed approximately 40 pounds. Along the way, whenever I had questions, all I had to do was ask, and Rod had an answer and even occasionally scolded me for not knowing better. I now find myself reading labels, checking the number of carbs in various foods, etc. before I plan a meal. The fact that I just wrote this testimonial should speak volumes.

When we met for my initial consultation last August (2020), I must say that I was a little nervous about my ability to climb out of the 322 pound hole I'd dug for myself. Your personalized, caring and motivating approach gave me the confidence to begin changing the way I thought about the food that goes into my body.
Here we are ten months later. I've lost 90 pounds and my A1C has gone from 6.2 to 5.1. I have energy I haven't had in years and I just feel healthy!! Most importantly, all of this is helping me recover and heal from a serious surgery I had just weeks ago.
I cannot thank you enough for what you've done for me, and what you continue to do. I still have much to learn from you...and I look forward to it!!
As the years went on, I struggled with many mental and physical health issues that many doctors could not figure out; even blood tests were not conclusive. I immediately thought to reach out to Mr. Cartocci to see if he was able to help me out... and he did! After our first phone consultation, Mr. "C" suspected that my issues were significantly due to my nutritional habits and lifestyle. Before working with Mr. C, I was dizzy, upset, tired, and having stomach issues. After working with Mr. Cartocci, not only have all of these issues disappeared, but I feel better than I have in years! The interventions that we have implemented over the course of a few weeks have made a hugely positive impact and I wish I had reached out sooner. He is more hands on than any of my doctors have ever been.
He is compassionate, will listen to your needs, and will give you his full attention. I highly recommend following Mr. Cartocci’s website and working with him. You won’t find anyone kinder or more qualified.

I wanted to share a before and an after transformation that could have only been achieved with your brilliant advice and knowledge. I am truly grateful for you to have come into my life. You meet many people on your journey through life, and there are some who have such a profound impact on you and how you live. You, my friend are one of those people for me. I can't thank you enough for helping me take control for my life and how I feel.
I was faced with a crossroads in my life with my health. I was experiencing many scary symptoms and was sure that I had some life threatening disease. I went to the doctors and he sent me to many specialists to have a battery of tests. After a month of being poked, prodded, scanned and examined, they found nothing that was seriously wrong. I had some extremely elevated inflammation markers and not much else. So, I decided that I needed to come see you for help with my nutrition. I figured that must be the culprit that was causing my symptoms, and I needed to address it.
Well I am very thankful I did. After you "showed me the way" and broke it down to a molecular level, I was sold!
Within three months I was 30 lbs lighter and the elevated marker was back down to the normal range. All the symptoms I was experiencing, were gone. My doctor was simply amazed! He said that he had never seen the inflammation marker go down like that from diet alone.
You are my life saver Rod!! I simply can't thank you enough.
All the best and see you in Yoga

related information for many years. I find that by keeping in touch with his up-to-date web site, I can adjust my diet and lifestyle in ways that prevent medical problems.
I often use the valuable information that Rod provides with my clients in my practice of Psychotherapy on Cape Cod.
I am grateful to know him.

Rod’s wisdom will not disappoint, his advice will not be judgmental, and his suggestions will not be complicated. You will be amazed how successful you can be by taking one small step at a time. Not only will the benefits be long term, but you will forever have a “coach” in your corner and a friend for life.
Rod and I have been friends for a long time and I would recommend him to anyone wishing to further their knowledge in health and wellness. I always look forward to his informative articles and sound advice so I can pass along his “words of wisdom” with my family and friends.

I want to send you a testimonial for your website because I believe so strongly in the work you do. You fight a difficult battle and your message, sadly, is counter culture. I am quite imperfect in terms of diet and exercise for my children and myself, but your work gives me valuable information and something to strive for. Thank you for your perseverance in getting the message of optimal health (and the corporate greed that intentionally impedes it!) to the community.
Rod's passion for wellness is contagious. When my son was in his nutritional health class, he came home telling me, "Mom, we have to buy organic milk...and here's why." He was given truthful age appropriate information that sparked changed ways of eating for my family. Rod operates on selfless principals that encourage a mindful, healthy lifestyle for children and adults. Rod understands the complexities of the culture and how making healthful changes are difficult but doable in small meaningful steps. He lives what he preaches, exposes greed and lies in the industry and uses research to support his holistic approach to healthy living. Rod's contribution to quality living and optimal health are a gift to the community.
With much respect,
