Change my approach to nutrition
Joanna...you helped me change my approach to nutrition and it worked perfectly.
I am ripped and ready!

Leaves no stone un-turned to help you
"I have worked with Joanna since her beginning...since she realized her true gift and passion.
What a joy its been watching her evolving into probably one of the most trusted folks in the nutrition industry for Philly....and surrounding burbs.
She is truly a die hard....she walks the walk..talks the talk....big time.
I cant say enough how much we enjoy listening to her approach, she leaves no stone un-turned to help someone. PhillyFIT Magazine proudly invites Joanna to all of our events, so our readership and attendees can learn from her. We are proud of our relationship with Joanna and hope she touches more lives than she ever imagined!

Joanna inspired to pursue a healthier lifestyle
She is subtle, intelligent, and mindful in her approach. We first started with a vitamin review (Nutrition Response Testing) and I started implementing her advice on turmeric root, which has significantly decreased my nerve pain therefore I have been more active.
I have struggled with neuropathy for over ten years and get little to no relief with many things. I implemented cleaner eating just a few years ago but continue to learn from Joanna's tutorials and suggestions. My health is a bit complicated but I do know every step we take toward better health can only help us.
I can tell you I have already cut several bad habits from my diet including soda and other forms of sugar, and as a result feel much better and am able to function day to day with a new perspective.
All thanks, to the 2/3 days I spent with Joanna.

My diet has significantly improved!
"Just wanted to send you a quick note thanking you for the help when we worked together in the fall. My diet is significantly improved thanks to your guidance. I celebrate small victories like filling most of the shopping cart at the grocery store in the produce section! I remain hooked on smoothie concoctions for breakfast adding kale and a bunch of other good stuff. Lunch is the rainbow with raw veggies, nuts and lean proteins.
As my training continues to ramp up for season i do make sure i am adding enough carbs but eating mostly whole fresh foods. Training is going well, i just PR'd half marathon at 1:29, and feel great.
Thanks again for your help!
I remembered your advice…and it worked!
You are very good at what you do!
"Thank you for being part of my fabulous team to get me prepared for my marathon.
I so appreciate your advice, not just on nutrition, but the head-space and exercises leading up to it, too.
You are very good at what you do!
Thank you again!" NJ

This lifestyle change has been amazing
I know my mom already called you with my good news, but I just wanted to tell you again how happy I am. You have helped me so much already, I've been trying to lose weight for a long time and it's just an amazing feeling that it's finally coming off.
I got off the scale this morning and had happy tears.
The way you have presented the information has been great and I haven't even felt like it's been that difficult. I know these changes I've been making are so much better then any diet I could try- this lifestyle change has been amazing.
I'm even going to a party tonight and have little interest in drinking. Only going to have a glass of wine- which is a big change for me.
She helped me out tremendously
I [worked with Joanna] on three separate occasions on dialing in my race day nutrition. She helped me out tremendously. Gave me a game plan for electrolyte supplementation during the race as well as some ideas on how to break up my nutrition during the bike and run, even more so than I did during my [Ironman Lake Placid} training.
She gave me 2 pieces of advice that stuck with me during the race and helped me out. I had a back up plan in the event solid nutrition did not work for me that day (which it ended up not working) and to nix it if something went wrong. She also suggested using coke on the second half of the run. Lastly, she had suggested to keep extra electrolytes with me in the event I needed them.
So after dropping solid foods and only using powder/liquid supplements, taking her suggestions of upping electrolytes if needed and switching the coke to get some calories in my system, I was able to finish with minimal GI issues.
If you think you may need some suggestions on nutrition or want to dial in a race day plan, give her a shout. She helped me and all my issues and gave me peace of mind when things didn't go as planned. She was a big help and extremely knowledgeable.

I DID IT!
Feeling a lot stronger
Thank you again SO much for all this awesome info. I am honestly feeling a lot stronger in my training lately and the heat isn't bothering me at all.
I am also cramping less in my runs lately, and really attribute a lot of this to our fixing my constant state of dehydration and I'm just more aware of my fueling during the day since our first session. Just feeling really grateful! - Sara C
"Thank you for all your awesome advice!!!! ..[Race Day] Nutrition is tough because it can really derail you, but it is hard to practice.
I really appreciate your description of symptoms because it is easy to know that there is something wrong, but hard to know the cause and how to fix it.
I really appreciate your expertise here and can't wait to Saturday!" Marita M
I couldn’t be happier!
"A first for me was completing the HIM distance this season, twice.
I hired Joanna to help me with my nutrition plan and education. My nutrition for both events was spot on, I felt great during both events. Could not be happier with the nutrition results. ..
I highly recommend Joanna services for anyone looking for a great endurance nutritionist. To boot she is a class individual as well.
Thank you Joanna for always being there for me and all your support and education over this past season." DAN B
You are that good!
"I would pay you $500 per session if I had it and know it was worth every penny because - You're that good." TG - Olympic rowing team
Thank you for getting ‘back’ on track with the Detox Plan!
detox is a piece of cake!
I am on Day 2 of my 2-week detox and so far it is a piece of cake.
I have made two recipes...butternut squash, carrot and ginger soup which was unbelievably delicious and I made those addicting kale chips. And I mean addicting!!! I never have to eat potato chips again! LM
My clothes fit again!
"It has been less than a week [on the Detox Plan], but I’ve found so much comfort in the lessons about food you’ve taught me through the years and have been amazed at how quickly I’m dropping the weight!!
I’m not starving, I have energy, the highs and lows from sugar have stopped, I am no longer craving carbs and, most importantly, my clothes are starting to fit again!!" DH
As good as they get
"I have known Joanna for going on 6 yrs. now and when it comes to nutrition, knowing what to feed your body for specific results like a marathon, or general healthy lifestyle she is as good as it gets.
I have also followed her athletic career and I am constantly amazed at her diversity in her accomplishments.
Keep it up Joanna!"
Joanna changed my world!
"Joanna changed my world for me!!! I now race with no gut issues!!!"
Love the food!
My kids love the soups that I've been making from the recipe book too! - SG 2015
Her plan is geared towards my goals!
I'm very excited for this year and ready to crush any obstacle that gets in my way! #macros #nutrition #bodybuilding #physique #wellness #2016
Call Joanna Chodorowska ..[her plan] is geared towards my personal goals. ... Call her she's great!
I learned SO much from you!
Now I am more aware of what makes my stomach hurt.
(Who knew stress was such a trigger?)
I appreciate all your help! " AA
Thought I was nutritionally fine
"I thought my diet was nutritionally fine until I signed up for the 2 Week Detox Plan for Athletes. By the end of the detox program, my body felt great!
Joanna not only showed us how to make and eat great tasting food, but she did the group class, too.
I have continued on a diet consisting of vegetables, fruit, chicken, fish and staying away from processed food as much as possible.
Since the detox class, I have lost 15 pounds and am down 22 from last year at this time (May). I cannot wait to see what my race times will be this year! - JL
Such an expert
"Joanna is such an expert in her field. Her sports nutrition and coaching for athletes is unmatchable. If you are prepping for game/race day, be sure to include her nutrition plans as part of your training regimen.
If you're not training for a marathon, don't let that keep you from using her.
She has an awesome program for those who are just getting started in making changes in their eating lifestyle.
She makes it easy to follow, fun and as painless as possible to get on the road to a healthier you.
She knows that nutrition is not one size fits all so the plans she develops with you, reflect not only proper nutrition, but foods you enjoy. She offers cooking classes too! For those that have excellent self discipline and are looking for a challenge to jump start themselves....do the detox plan."
Seeing the benefits of nutrition
Expertise and individual attention is key
"I have lost at least 10 pds the past month..I'm happy with the progress and close to having a six pack with my b-day around the corner. Super stoked!
I want to continue to consult with you as I feel your expertise and individual attention to clients is key."
Nutrition was spot on thanks to you!
"I ran a trail race - 5 miler - and my nutrition was spot on thanks to you!
Pre-race was a sweet potato and half avocado with some sea salt, cup of coffee - 20 min before race had 4 dates - no tummy issues at all!" -Mindy S
My first podium finish!
eat RIGHT amount of RIGHT foods
Felt great the entire time
I got this response on how the half Ironman 70.3 race went for my client - his first at this distance
We did a Table To Race ironman nutrition plan 2 days prior:
“somehow, some way...[I finished although under-trained]
but seriously, i had my best swim ever and felt GREAT the entire time... which i truly believe was because i followed your [Table to Race nutrition] plan religiously.
that was by far the longest race i've ever done and the best i've ever felt in any race.
i'm really happy with my time... once i learn to get my wetsuit off faster and remember to put sunscreen on BEFORE the swim, i'll be even faster.
i'm really truly happy. thank you so, so much!
you were a huge part of this!”
I am so thrilled for them!!
Congratulations and so happy you felt great!!
Back on Track with your help
"Thank you again for all your help.
...we seem to have found the problem and with your help, I am able to get myself back on track again"
Great nutrition coach!
What I really liked about her was that she is an athlete, so she understands the difference between working out and training, and racing for fun or competing. She will help you understand where the issues are in your eating habits. I had the bad habit of not eating at the right times, not the right portions and quality of food. I thought I was pretty healthy, but she has made me realize all the wrong things I've been doing for years!
Working with Joanna has been an eye opener experience. I am now very conscious about my eating habits and it's helped me a lot. I have lost weight, I feel stronger during my training and I feel healthier overall. I highly recommend Joanna, I have not found such a great nutrition coach like her. I also encourage you to get the package deals she's got. It's totally worth it.
The eczema is GONE!!
The horrible gas and the absolute horrifying eczema that has plagued me for the past two years is GONE!!!!!!!
I feel amazing!
I found Joanna through various friends that had used her and recommended her services. We had phone sessions because live quite a distance from her office, but it worked out great.
She made sure to individualize my nutrition plan to fit my exact needs. I completed another Ironman earlier this month and PR'd by over an hour and placed 3rd in my AG and 8th OA female not including pros. My marathon is at a 3:05 but hope to get sub 3 very soon and am confident that with my new race day nutrition, I will!
Joanna is awesome with hydration
"Joanna is awesome. She helped me out so much with a hydration and electrolyte plan after we did a preliminary sweat test. I thought it was gels flipping my stomach.....I was wrong. I can only imagine how this [Levelen sweat] test could help further. Thanks Joanna!"
