What Our Happy Eaters Have to Say:


I love the program! After having a third child, I found it very hard to lose the weight on my own, especially when breastfeeding. Personal gourmet helped me achieve my pre-pregnancy weight and lose the last 10 pounds in under a month! The food was delicious and easy for a mom on the go. Thank you for all your help!

In reference to your email about sending in success stories, here's mine! I started with Personal Gourmet just over a month ago and I'm very happy to say that I've lost over 14 pounds over those four weeks! And I'm in this for the long haul, and considering how much I weigh, 400 pounds, that haul is going to be pretty long!

I wanted to let you all know that I thoroughly enjoyed the program. I had anticipated good food as I've been a fan of Rose's for many years..but the food exceeded my expectations! I was able to lose 5lbs so far, but more importantly, the meals helped to "reset" my idea of adequate portions for myself and introduced me to alternative grains such as barley, quinoa and bulgar which kept me satisfied. My goal now will be to continue to incorporate this new learning into my own cooking! Thank you.
