“It’s been an epic 6 months of really large and yet sublime change… made so easy.”

- E.B., 43, high level senior executive at a large international consulting firm

“This [health profile analysis] is incredibly insightful feedback. THANK YOU. I feel like I’ve received more insight from you in 2 weeks than I’ve gotten in TWENTY years from conventional medicine. Even better though? I now feel more empowered to use conventional medicine to my advantage. That’s a big deal!”

- Karri Flatla, entrepreneur, www.nakedprairie.com

Delicious Health’s S3 Program has been the missing link in my healing and health. While I previously did a diet “clean up”, it wasn’t until S3 that I really understood how even some of my food (and caffeine!) choices were contributing to inflammation, low energy levels, mood changes and more. The course covers so many interconnected topics, from time management to developing a life plan, all neatly tied together by Simla and her panel of experts. I continue to listen to the recordings, even two months after the class ended. S3 is truly a life-changing course that I highly recommend!”

- Deb R., 35, facilitator and community planner

“I feel much more comfortable in my skin; I feel energized, focused, even more excited about life in general. And this is just after 30 days. I’m not afraid of backsliding, cravings, or giving in to old habits. Not because I won’t ever experience them again, but because I know what I need to do to get myself back on track and I know how good it feels – and how yummy it can be! – to be on that track. The moment I knew Simla really got into my head is when I was chilling out in front of the boob tube watching the host of Man vs. Food shovel down pounds of nachos while I was quite content munching on a bowl of kale chips….

[Simla is] such a positive, genuine spirit. And she’s SMART. I consider myself fairly knowledgeable about nutrition; I’ve done extensive research and have talked to many professionals, yet I’ve never come across someone so astute and logical about an area of expertise that so many people think they understand yet so few really get.”

[Note from Simla: Stephanie also told me that her HEARING got better. Can you imagine, as a MUSIC professional? How cool is that?!]

~ Stephanie B., Music Industry Executive

“In working with Simla, my most significant takeaway is a deeper understanding that ‘everything is connected.’ I’ve never put all the components of my life together in such an integrated way before. First, I learned so much about the right foods to eat, but then when I realized this way of eating right (for ME), was actually connected to my productivity, to achieving my dreams, and living an abundant life, new light bulbs that have never even twinkled in my mind started lighting up. I am seeing and experiencing life in a whole new way, and am forever grateful for Simla’s gentle ‘wake-up call.’ “

- Suzanne Rielle, 47, busy mom & entrepreneur, S3 Program client

“For the first time in my life I am at peace with food. For me, this is huge. I have struggled with the question of what to eat since elementary school. My years pre-Simla progressively built up my confusion about what food I should be eating. After working with Simla, I know that I will never again feel guilty about the food I eat. I know what foods are good for my body, and how to cook them to make them taste amazing so that I don’t feel deprived. I love real food now. Simla is amazing at what she does. She is brilliant, inspiring, and passionate about helping people. I believe that she would find ways to improve the health and happiness of any person recommended to her.”

- T.M., 24, graduate student & autoimmune client

“Before working with Simla, I experienced fatigue in the middle of the day, sleepiness and was addicted to sugar and caffeine. I started to see results as soon as I started changing my eating habits – I started to feel more energy from the food I ate and I knew I was on the right track! I now have more energy that lasts through the day without having any caffeine and if my energy is low, I can identify the cause and prevent it. I also haven’t been sick as much and I have started to lose weight. Simla is very open and friendly and at the same time she is very knowledgeable and professional. Simla is very passionate about the work she is doing, therefore you are getting the best result possible from the whole process.”

- Julie, 24, Student & Future Finance Professional, private client

“Simla! How she connects to her audience – very personal and engaging! [I encourage you to attend her events because] it will empower you for you in every aspect, not just food.”

- Amy Whalen, Events Manager, Nonprofit Organization

“Very ‘deep’ information. Presenter wasn’t afraid of going against prevailing nutritional opinion. It’s very captivating. More info is conveyed in 1 hour than I  learned online in 6 months!”

- Corporate Private Workshop Attendee, 28, Senior Network Engineer

“It was excellent!”

- Jennifer A., 39, attendee at an Eat Your Stress Away, the Right Way! Workshop

“After a life changing injury, I was ready for a clean start, not only in how I eat, but in everything I do to promote my health. Simla helped me understand what my goals were and how to achieve them realistically and taught me how to better support my life through food by working with me to design a way of eating that complimented my life and didn’t fit into a “healthy eating” box. I now better understand what my body needs to thrive and how to better balance my meals. Simla has been extremely supportive of my individual needs and invested in my education and my health.”

- Cary Matthews, 30, Student & Future Conscious Business/Nonprofit Professional, private client

“Working with Simla has been an excellent adventure and education in nutrition, cooking, healing and wellness. I have learned to really listen to my body and trust my instincts about which foods are good for me, which are not so good, and which are truly debilitating. I have also extended a low-allergen diet to my family in hopes of preventing food intolerances to soy, corn, and gluten that can occur from overexposure in the Western diet. Thank you Simla for a new relationship with food!”

- Daniella T., Delicious Cleanse group client

“Simla provides excellent advice for improving nutrition, health…and life! I have learned so much from her programs. The advice is easy to implement and Simla provides step-by-step guides on how to accomplish your health goals.”

- Sandra S., Private Client and Delicious Cleanse group client

“[I was] feeling bombarded by nutritional advice but Simla’s seminar illuminated myths parading as facts that are likely sabotaging my current diet! If you don’t want to be a moody foodie, listen to Simla! The event was well-paced, reflecting Simla’s organization, mastery of the information, and passion for sharing healthful information!”

- Mark S. Plummer, 35, Self-Employed Publicist & Food-Mood Connection Workshop attendee

“Before working with Simla, I was experiencing joint pain, joint/muscle inflammation, fatigue, and inability to manage stress, which had been building in intensity over the last decade. Through my work with Simla, I’ve been able to diminish all my physical symptoms. I have an increased level of energy, I feel lighter as I move through my days, I feel beautiful and attractive, and I have a deeper understanding of the level of control I have over my well-being.”

- Cathy, late 30s, Entrepreneur & Private Autoimmune Client

“Great information provided to participants with lots of examples. This woman is amazing! She absolutely knows her stuff!”

- Anna Foletta, Wellness Director, YMCA Embarcadero in San Francisco & frequent sponsor of Simla’s events

“[What I liked best about the grocery store tour is] Content! Needs to be in everyone’s ‘life lesson’ toolkit.”

- Ayesha M., early 30s, Business Owner & Grocery Store Tour attendee

“I liked that you gave us actual “good and bad mood” foods during the session. I enjoyed the thorough explanations you went into on how these affect us. It makes me want to work with you even more and get more books! I would encourage others to attend because of how passionate you are about your material and how you go into detail and leave us with enough information to start making a change.”

- Clarisse K., 31, Freelancer & Food-Mood Connection Workshop attendee

“Working with Simla Somturk Wickless on matters of healthful eating is like sipping organic pear nectar on the Riviera under an umbrella in the warm sun; with very gentle waves awakening your entire psyche, feet first.”

- Timothy O’Connell, late 60s, Nurse

“By working with Simla, I gained a new appreciation for the saying ‘you are what you eat.’ She really taught me how the foods I eat affect the overall health of my body and how I feel – physically & mentally – as a result. She is a joy. Pure delight. And she really cares. Wants to help you learn and meet your goals. And very generous, too.”

- Kate V., 35, Journalist/Writer

“Working with Simla, I developed a diet to match my new workout routine, to allow me sufficient energy and to see the results of my exercise. I am less bloated and more toned as a result. People around me are adopting my new eating habits! Simla also helped me confirm which foods I am allergic to, and helped me modify my diet to feel better but still eat well. I have more consistent moods and feel like my ‘system’ is running cleaner. Simla is very knowledgeable, committed, supportive, and willing to investigate any health claims I had questions about. Thank you, Simla!”

- M.B., late 30s, Attorney & Private Client

“It was a pleasure to participate in the Sugar Blues teleclass. I am pleased to learn that there might be ways to address sugar cravings with activities. Along with that, I also realize it is one step in the path towards eating right and living well. Thank you for helping me get started!”

- Anita P., mid-30s, Entrepreneur

“This was a great presentation in which I enjoyed your overview of addictive foods, things to avoid, and what foods are healthy and bring moods up. Thank you for sharing.”

- Anonymous, 43, Food-Mood Connection Workshop attendee

“After being diagnosed at 27 with Breast Cancer, it wasn’t long before I realized it would transform my life. At the beginning everything was focused on the treatment and eradication of the cancer, and after a while, I realized that there was not much else available on how to cope with the side effects and other symptoms that the treatments caused…. Working with Simla gave me the tools to start listening to my body as well as the ability to understand what it needs. I immediately noticed the dramatic difference in my improved energy, mood, weight level, not to mention a renewed enjoyment and excitement for food…. By using the tools that I learned with Simla, I was greatly able to boost my immune system and was actually able to avoid getting sick and free of infection during the ordeal of chemotherapy and radiation therapy. It could be luck, but I think everyone else I talked to was at least hospitalized once during their treatment. I beg to differ!

[Simla is] extremely patient and caring; amazing level of listening and consideration for what I say. Incredibly knowledgeable on everything you teach. Immensely passionate about food as healing. Very sincere and empathetic. A pleasure to work with!!!”

- P.B., 27, Startup Professional

“What I liked best about this event is [Simla's] personality! Plus the statistics mixed with personal accounts are great. Would I encourage my friends to come to this event? Oh my yes!”

- Anonymous, 39, Food-Mood Connection Workshop attendee

“I learned SO much. [The grocery store tour taught me] a new way to look at food in general – the good things, not so good things, interesting and so natural!!”

- L. Garcia, late 50s, Grocery Store Tour Participant

“I thought you handled the [group] session perfectly. Your time management, pace, and complexity of the information was perfect for the audience and format. I thought you struck an excellent balance with bringing in personal examples without coming across as “preachy”…. [Y]ou inspire me to find a calling, not just a job.”

- K.A., mid-30s, Corporate Executive

“Great new information – some surprising, all refreshing – about nutrition. Simla is very knowledgeable about the content and effects of food on our bodies. I’ll be able to put the information into practice right way! Thank you!”

- Corporate Private Workshop Attendee, Marketing Executive

“I liked learning about the cause of false moods. The list of bad [mood] foods will be helpful so I know what to avoid. This presentation was a great introduction to the types of foods that have a positive and negative effect on our moods.”

- Name withheld for privacy, 32, Consultant & Food-Mood Connection Workshop attendee

“You give practical tips and recommendations that actually apply to everyday life. I really appreciated the scientific explanation of why the tips matter.”

“Fun, encouraging, inspiring.”

- W.M., 38, busy professional & Food-Mood Connection Workshop attendee

“I have experienced visible results in my health and well-being. I feel better overall with less fatigue and more energy. My immune system is stronger, I get sick less often and if I do get sick – I get better faster…. My lifestyle is extremely busy and fast-paced and I found creative and easy ways to eat, which may involve cooking, preparing or simply buying, healthy meals even with this lifestyle. I also became more aware of my body, emotions and feelings and am able to influence them in a positive way…. More than anything, I discovered that I have the power to heal my body, by listening to it, feeding it healthy foods, exercising, giving it enough rest, controlling stress and negative emotions and focusing on positive in my life and being grateful for what I have.”

– Name withheld for privacy. Early 30s, Investment Banker

– Maryann W., mid-50s, Entrepreneur

“There are so many wonderful and different foods in the supermarket that we don’t know much about, and I feel like [the grocery store tour] was a great opportunity to explore and discover how we could incorporate these into our nutrition program…. [I]t is a rare opportunity to find out all the great things you’d probably miss in a supermarket, plus a chance to answer any questions about those strange items you see.”

- P.B., 27, Startup Professional

“I am a person that has a passion for a healthy lifestyle and someone who prides herself on being quite knowledgeable about health and nutrition. The Sugar Blues class was not about restriction, but rather about revelation into human patterns and tendencies. It went beyond my expectations by delving into the science behind cravings and providing analysis and action tools for making small yet significant changes to my diet and lifestyle. As a competitive runner, I know that what I learned and will apply will help me regulate my energy for peak performance. I believe everyone has something to learn from Simla’s class that can complement his/her unique situation. I know I did! Thank you, Simla!”
