“So far I’ve lost 75 pounds!”
“I realized I had metabolic syndrome, high blood pressure, prediabetes, and fatty liver disease. My family doctor said,
“Oh we’ll just keep an eye on it.”
Since changing my lifestyle, my blood pressure has steadily come down. My blood sugars are mostly under 100. My liver enzymes are a lot better. My pillars are water, sleep, exercise, diet, and stress management. I’m going slowly and I’m getting healthier everyday.
I’m able to do interval running again and have been able to change my emotional eating habits, especially at work and in the evening. So far I’ve lost 75 pounds!”

“I have lost 50 pounds. I am no longer on any prescription medication.”
"Prior to my introduction to Zivli, I had eaten anything I wanted, anytime I wanted. I lost my mom in 2018 and my dad’s dementia was progressing.
I had started watching some of Zivli’s videos on Instagram and they made sense. The one that really got to me was the one about if we drink one Dr Pepper each week for a year, we would have consumed 10.8 cups of sugar! Then I learned that excess sugar is directly linked to dementia! That is why I started on this journey, asking God to help me.
I was determined I could make this work. I started in and haven’t looked back!"

“This is the first time in my life my weight has stayed off. I lost 20 pounds and have been stable for a year!”
"I was desperate because I had tried everything. I was eating what I thought was healthy…whole grain breads, whole wheat pasta, low-fat everything. Nothing was working.
I just took my doctor’s word and every year she would say, “Excellent labs…you don’t have to do anything.” But When I looked at my labs I could see I was prediabetic, and had been since 2006. Protein was the biggest game changer for me. When I started upping my protein my sweet cravings left. I couldn’t believe it.
I wanted to enter my next decade (70s) at my best. I am so much stronger than I used to be because of the strength training. It’s life-changing!
When I had my hip replacement surgery, I knew I wanted to go into it strong. My recovery was so much quicker because I was stronger. 2 ½ months after surgery, I was able to run up over 200 steps like Rocky on vacation and bike with my family up and down hills.
I was so grateful I found Zivli because I never wanted my children to have to plan something that “mom can do.” I want to be able to do most of the things they do. That was my “why.” Making these lifestyle changes has re-energized me. I know now I can go into my 70s in my best spiritual, emotional, and physical health because they all go together.
Give yourself this gift. There is an epidemic of “infobesity” so I had to let all that go and trust the Zivli program. It was a wise choice and paid off.”

“I’ve had 3 instances this summer at the pool of people thinking my grandsons are my sons!”
"In April 2022, as a birthday gift to myself, I joined the Zivli program. What really caught my attention was the evidence about insulin resistance causing not only Type 2 diabetes but also a myriad of other chronic health problems including breast cancer.
I had nonetheless been “pre-prediabetic” just based on the excessive amounts of sugar I was consuming on a daily basis, mostly consumed after dinner during some emotional night time eating.
I have lost 20 pounds and 10% body fat. I have significantly improved triglyceride levels (even though I am eating more saturated healthy fats than I ever have in my life!) and lower blood sugar levels. All my other blood tests are the same or slightly better than in years past.
I am exercising more regularly, including weight lifting, which I have always known as being critical for healthy aging, but am now even more devoted to incorporating it into my lifestyle after learning how muscle tissue health is linked to improved insulin sensitivity. And, I even achieved one of my “fun” goals which was to confidently wear my bikini again at the beach, which I did during our family vacation there last month.
The top left photo is from 2021, just after finishing a 53 mile bike ride. While I was able to accomplish that, I weighed 205 lbs, about 26 lbs over a normal BMI for my age (57) & height (I am 5’10.5”).
The other 3 photos are at the beach weighing 179 (my goal weight) wearing my bikini and doing cartwheels on the sand because I feel so good!"

"My doctor was very pleased at a loss of 40 pounds. He eliminated one of my two blood pressure meds and cut the cholesterol prescription in half."
"I started the Zivli program initially with the goal of losing about 30 pounds before my next annual physical in November.
However, after working through the program, gaining a deeper understanding of the overall health benefits of the low carb and insulin reducing lifestyle, my goals were expanded to reduce my existing medication (cholesterol and blood pressure) as well.
My doctor, while not necessarily buying into this lifestyle, was very pleased at a loss of 40 pounds, improved lipid profile, and blood pressure. He eliminated one of my two blood pressure meds and cut the cholesterol prescription in half.
With an understanding of the overall Zivli program I am pleased to not only know what lifestyle changes I needed to make, but more importantly knowing why and some of the science and research supporting these changes."

"I have lost nearly 30 pounds and kept it off. My triglycerides, HDL & LDL all showed improvement. I was able to get off 3 medications!"
“My father had serious heart problems & died of a heart attack at age 56. My mom was a dedicated Weight Watcher. We all bought into the low-fat, low-calorie foods that doctors suggested back then.
No one was concerned that highly processed foods were harming us in any way. I spent most of my adult years dieting on and off, usually following Weight Watchers or the occasional fad diet. I was successful at losing weight, but rarely kept it off because I didn't continue with it. I'd go back to my old eating habits.
I heard about "Clean Eating" from our adult daughters. I understood that too much sugar was unhealthy. I knew that processed foods, white flour, etc were bad for you, but I didn't really understand just how to fit this into my lifestyle.
It wasn't until I was introduced to Zivli AND started working together with my husband to follow it, that I finally "got it"! I've shed the outdated mindset of low-fat, low-cal foods and replaced it with high protein, healthy fats, low-carb, low-sugar foods.
Learning about WHY & HOW certain foods affect us, either in healthy or unhealthy ways, has convinced us that the changes we have been making this past year will help us live a longer, healthier life. We are looking forward to enjoying more of our retirement years!
My BMI is now within normal range. I have lost nearly 30 pounds and kept it off. My triglycerides, HDL & LDL all showed improvement. I was able to get off 3 medications!"

"My blood glucose has returned to a very good score of 80! My triglycerides dropped and my HDL also has been going up!"
"My experience with Morgan and Reshape Physical Therapy and Wellness, LLC has been a Godsend to my 2019. Although I still have goals that are "in progress" my original concern of severe left knee pain has been alleviated beyond my wildest dreams. I have gained muscle as well as confidence by adding strength training back into my life.
I am a walker and Jazzerciser however my weight was "stuck" and my knee was giving out. Through better nutrition, hydration and exercise designed just for me I am pain free and can do all I want to do physically!!
Through it all Morgan was patient, thorough in her teaching and demonstration and always willing to change things up if I reached a standstill. My energy is more than enough for whatever life throws at me! My blood glucose has returned to a very good score of 80! My triglycerides dropped and my HDL also has been going up.
My experience with Reshape has been life enhancing and a joyous journey. I am excited to continue with Morgan's online Master Classes! You should too-- choose wellness and reserve your spot!"
"Excellent information and support. Brought my cholesterol numbers in range, lost 15 pounds, increased my bone density, and have a much better understanding of carbs, fat, and protein in a healthy diet. I'd recommend!"
"I understand what works, but more importantly why it works!"
"I have tried every weight loss program under the sun. I have never seen long term results. I lose weight and immediately gain it back. This program has given me new insight into my weight loss journey. I understand what works, but more importantly why it works. Morgan’s program is not a diet, it is my new way of life."
"I saw results within 3 days of changing my diet and the results a year later are incredible...I have actually aged backwards!"
“Before I started a low-carb high fat/protein diet, I was gaining weight, had acne, was losing my hair, and had inexplicable anxiety attacks and sweating after eating. My belly was bloated and I was having problems with sudden onset of prickly foot pain.
I saw results within 3 days of changing my diet and the results a year later are incredible! I’ve lost 30 pounds, reduced my waist circumference from 35 to 27 inches, got off my blood pressure meds and now have normal fasting glucose and insulin levels. My brain fog and fatigue are gone.
My fibromyalgia is in remission. My migraines have drastically reduced in frequency and pain. My sleep quality has greatly improved and I no longer have anxiety and the hot, prickly foot pain I had is gone. My skin, hair, eyes, teeth, and body composition have all drastically improved.
I have stamina I never had before, I can walk for miles, stand for hours, and run 5K two to three times per week. I have a positive outlook on life and enjoy my hobbies again! I have actually aged backwards. I am the same size I was in high school (5' 5", 105 pounds), only much, much healthier!”
"I’m eating more and lost weight ... wish I’d found her twenty years ago!"
"Kudos to Morgan! After eating “low fat/no fat” and counting points from the 1990s until this summer, Morgan has reversed those years of eating small meals. Morgan has convinced me that “Fat is good”! I’m eating more and lost weight! Who knew? Morgan is so easy to work with and always encouraging!
Morgan is a wonderful instructor. She has set up each module with very careful thought and makes reference to scientific readings. She is very connected to each participant to the level each desires.
Morgan allows questions and responds with insightful answers to help each participant to reach their individual goals.
Just wish I’d found her twenty years ago!
I watch what aisles I shop, what I cook, and what we eat. Something I didn’t do for years! WW didn’t ever work, and low fat isn’t what’s going to help! Learned to read labels for sugar and protein numbers!”
"Losing weight after menopause is possible!"
After menopause it seemed like the weight was coming on so fast. I realized after several unproductive visits with my primary care doctor about my weight gain, that he was just not equipped to help me, and unfortunately, he wasn't telling me that he wasn't equipped to help me.
I was so frustrated. I found it disheartening that my doctor was unable to help me, and kept giving me advice that just wasn’t helpful. Our culture expects us to accept weight gain as we grow older, but I don’t accept that! My faith teaches me that I am only to accept the things of God - I don’t see any weight gain in the Bible.
I’m so thankful that God led me to Dr. Morgan! Through the Zivli course, I've actually learned how to eat for my aging body. It has also shifted my mindset from grabbing anything just because I’m hungry - like having a cookie while I’m cooking dinner - to eating more protein.
I’ve learned a lot of different protein foods that I can have on hand and grab quickly instead of a cookie.
I used to have a super, super sweet tooth and I loved my sweets. And now with just replacing it with protein and going through everything the program teaches, I honestly do not have a sweet tooth anymore - and I’m pretty shocked by that!
When I would try, I honestly could not lose one pound on my own…not one pound. So far, I've lost 21 pounds, super excited! I'm excited because it's proof that we don't have to accept what culture tells us. Losing weight after menopause is possible. We just have to know and understand how to eat for the body that we have.
Plus, I did not gain even one pound over the holidays, even though I ate well and had desserts. I didn’t completely cut anything out. I just prioritized protein over the holidays and was shocked when I went on the scale and did not gain one pound!
The program is so in-depth with a lot of resources and links to recipes that are helpful. For anyone who has been struggling over menopausal weight gain, this program is your answer! It’s simple and it works!"
"I finally started to see
weight loss for the first time in 2 years!"
"Weight loss has been a challenge for me my whole life. There is so much unhelpful messaging out there like I wasn’t trying hard enough, or something was wrong with me, or that this was my fault.
After I had my child, I tried everything that I thought was out there, but I was so frustrated because I had the mindset. I had the will. I had the desire. I had the commitment. I was doing what I felt like were the right things and it wasn't getting me anywhere. In fact, I steadily gained weight. After doing tests at my doctor’s office, I found out I was pre-diabetic.
Through Zivli I learned that psychology is not the beginning and the end of weight loss. There are other complex biological things that are happening. It's not just about your willpower to lose weight because I have that!
The program helped me identify the need to increase protein and healthy fats in my diet, and the role they play in weight loss. I also learned how to use the Carb Manager App, and find out specific foods that help me increase my protein and fat. The recipes and food suggestions are great! I learned about intermittent fasting, which opened up a whole new path for me to try.
The Zivli program taught me the science behind weight loss. It’s easy to follow and commit to because I understand why I’m doing what I’m doing. I am so much happier and am continuing to see results."
"I have gotten past my weight loss plateau!"
"I began the Zivli program in August of 2020. It was important to me to find a weight loss program designed around eating my own foods rather than prepackaged meals.
The program saved me since I found that my blood glucose was moving toward the diabetic range days after starting the program. Had I not started this program I would have been panicking to figure out how to improve this situation.
The program gave me a new way to look at healthy eating. I was amazed to get past the weight loss plateau that I was unable to crack for many years. Since starting the program,
I have lost 20 pounds and dropped 2 to 3 sizes. My weight, BMI and waist circumference are now all in healthy ranges. My lipid profile improved so that I am now off of my statin medication and my A1c is normal.
All of this without feeling hungry. Sugar cravings, even at times of stress, are gone. The program is designed to make you want to commit to making changes and form healthy habits but also allows for exceptions and imperfection while still moving forward towards accomplishing goals. It is not a one size fits all program but instead is malleable to custom fit individual needs.
The program is based on science and Dr. Nolte does an amazing job coaching participants through challenges and guiding them to maintain focus on their goals and develop strategies to get past obstacles.
I have been thrilled about the changes I have been able to make! Most importantly I have more energy and I feel healthier!"
"I lost 10 pounds and several inches off of my waist and hips."
"I am always amazed at the valuable information Morgan gives each week and how she makes little changes in habits and mind sets easy to adapt into a new lifestyle. I have been with Morgan since August of 2019.
I lost 10 pounds and several inches off of my waist and hips. She has taught me how to make better choices in what I buy and eat as well as when I eat. She made exercising into something I enjoy and I can feel the difference from the strength training when I pick up my granddaughter.
While it was challenging to break unhealthy habits and wrong thinking, this new lifestyle she helped me to adopt will have lifelong benefits. I look better and feel better!"
"I love the evidence-based approach!"
"I love the evidence-based approach and information on insulin resistance and getting to a healthier me and disease prevention. Morgan is supportive and available, she really listens to the words I use to help implement new habits, mindsets, and behaviors.”
"She offers a sustainable weight control program you will love!"
"Morgan has the knowledge, expertise, and passion to help people with their weight loss and other health goals! I did weekly virtual sessions with Morgan. She has an amazing ability to motivate, connect, and tailor her program to fit individual needs and goals. I achieved my weight loss goals in just eight weeks, having a great time learning from and working with Morgan, after struggling for years to control my weight. She offers a sustainable weight control program you will love!"
"Dr. Nolte has created an amazing, researched based, comprehensive program to get healthy and cut disease after 50 allowing you to be your best self. Highly recommend!"
"I lost 20 pounds, without changing how I exercise!"
"Morgan's personalized approach is a great fit for me. It allows me privacy and the flexibility to plan and work around employment and family commitments. Before I started with Morgan, I lost weight from time to time, but it always crept back on. I did not understand the nutritional aspects of weight management.
At age 59, I wanted a weight and wellness solution, so that I could focus on a future of activities with my family and keeping up with my grandchildren.
My therapist helped me learn what to eat and why it was necessary to keep the weight off. In 20 weeks, I lost 20 pounds, without changing how I exercise. I feel more confident in my appearance and have more than enough energy to play with my grandchildren.
My therapist was knowledgeable, supportive, and professional. I am looking forward to additional progress as we develop a maintenance nutrition plan and customize my physical activity program."
"Don’t be afraid to invest in yourself and your happiness."
"Morgan is incredible. Knowledgeable, passionate, dedicated, and invested. She truly wants you to succeed and it comes across. It’s clear she’s put a lot of thought and effort into finding the best ways to achieve lasting results and health.
Whether you want to feel more confident and comfortable in your body or have health concerns that need to be addressed due to weight, Morgan is an incredible resource and partner. Don’t be afraid to invest in yourself and your happiness."
"My previously high blood pressure readings are now down to numbers I haven’t seen since my 30’s ... I’ve lost inches from my hips, waist and thighs and I fit into my clothes better!"
"2018 was a horrible, frustrating year for me with 2 failed hand ligament surgeries and a foot stress fracture that would not heal. I knew I had to take charge of my body so that the medical misery of 2018 would never be repeated. A girlfriend suggested Reshape and I started working with Morgan 3 months ago. Morgan is not only very knowledgeable in nutrition and fitness but also an outstanding motivator for self-improvement.
My goal was to live a healthier lifestyle which would yield stronger muscles and bones, hopefully holding my ligaments intact. I did not give myself a set timeline such as an upcoming class reunion or the start of bathing suit weather. Instead, I figured I would be a work in progress for the rest of my life. With Morgan’s expertise and patience, I am well on my way to achieving my goal and so much more. Here are some of the benefits of my past three months of working with Morgan: *I have learned about the foods I eat (and didn’t eat). Boy, was I ignorant when it came to nutrition! *I have increased my daily fruit, vegetable, protein, fiber, and healthy fat intake, while somewhat painlessly eliminating a lot of non-healthy foods. The food I eat actually tastes better than ever before and I enjoy every bite I eat. Since I eat when I am hungry, I never feel like I am on a “diet”. I simply make wiser choices as to what goes into my mouth. *My previously high blood pressure readings are now down to numbers I haven’t seen since my 30’s.
My percentage of body fat is down and my percentage of lean muscle mass is up. I’ve lost inches from my hips, waist, and thighs and I fit into my clothes better. *I don’t drink nearly as much coffee as I used to (my body used to run on coffee and sugar!) and, instead, I drink half my body weight in ounces of water most days. *I have always walked, but now I have added strength training exercises that I can do at home. I am still working on the discipline of that, but try to get in a short half hour two days a week.
Morgan is extremely flexible and understanding of my stubbornness toward change. She works hard to build a path to healthiness that fits my body’s needs and my busy schedule. She is a joy to work with and I highly recommend her to anyone who wants to take charge of their health. I gladly give up my crown as the “Queen of Cookies”."
“I started doing the program in January after reading the Atomic Habits and Obesity Code books you had recommended. I lost 30 lbs. I took your course and it has helped me get back on track after a long plateau. This is the first time in decades that I have been able to lose weight and keep it off.”
"After just changing my nutrition I’ve lost ten pounds in a month!"
"Morgan is AMAZING!
She is very passionate, knowledgeable and willing to go the extra mile to help you reach success and your personal goals. I’m 28, after having my first born at 22 I was really stuck at a weight and after just changing my nutrition I’ve lost 10 pounds in a month!! I HIGHLY recommend!! You won’t regret it!"
"I would recommend it to anyone that is wanting to lose weight and keep it off for the rest of your life."
"I have so enjoyed my class with Morgan. Being my age? I am not techy but Morgan walked me through things when I had trouble. I have learned so much about my eating habits.
I highly recommend her classes. I have learned so much about sugars since starting the program with Morgan. I did not realize how many "added" sugars there are in products and until you read labels and understand the different names there are for sugar you do not even know how much you are eating.
Morgan covers lots of other areas in her weight loss program. I would recommend it to anyone that is wanting to lose weight and keep it off for the rest of your life.”
"I love this class. I wish I had known a lot of this in my teens and 20s!"
“I've been on a diet yoyo for 40 years! I am losing slowly. I've had a bad few weeks, but I'll get better one day at a time. I'm learning to give myself grace. I've learned so much from this course and I continue to learn more. Some I've listened to several times. I'm not done yet. Breaking bad habits is hard.
I've conquered some, and others...Well, I'm working on it. I love this class. I wish I had known a lot of this in my teens and 20s!!!”
"I have lost more than 30 pounds and significantly reduced my A1c since having worked with Morgan."
"I have lost more than 30 pounds and significantly reduced my A1c since having worked with Morgan. She works well with each of her clients and gives them the attention they need to achieve their goals."
"I realized more than ever that this process of healthy weight loss is a lifetime commitment."
“I have enjoyed Morgan's class and I have learned many new healthy weight loss ideas. I realized more than ever that this process of healthy weight loss is a lifetime commitment. It is a slow process but I know this is the healthiest way.”
"So far...I have lost 12 pounds and about 2 inches around my hips and waist! It’s been very positive."
"I am no longer blaming my husband for all the junk food that he brings home."
“I now have an entirely different attitude, it is not a diet it is a lifestyle change to get healthy. I now look at everything I want to eat and say is it worth it. It is coming off very slow but I am listening to Morgan words, "Slow and steady wins the race." I want to become healthy not just lose the weight.
My daughter asked me the other day if I was on a diet because I chose a salad with chicken over the pizza and I told her no I am choosing a lifestyle change. Do I wish this was going faster "YES" but I am not getting discouraged.
I am no longer blaming my husband for all the junk food that he brings home. He has now switched to tea with no sugar. :)”
"I’ve lost 15 pounds and feel so much better eating a clean diet."
