Transformational Ambassadors

Our transformation ambassadors are some very special people! We celebrate our transformation ambassadors who, through the use of our programs and their dedication to their own change have begun to create inspiring results for themselves. Many of our transformation ambassadors have lost upwards of 50 or more pounds, or reversed a nagging health issue. Transformation ambassadors share their stories on YoungandRaw.com, through our social media channels and from time to time, are selected to be highlighted in upcoming programs which includes being interviewed by our writers. Transformation ambassadors also gain access to a variety of Young and Raw programs, and have opportunities to try our detoxes, meal plans and cleanses before they’re released to the public.

Julie Hunter

I’ve always been overweight my whole life. I was diagnosed with PCOS (polycystic ovarian disorder) and was told I would not be able to have children.

This devastated my husband and I. I turned to food and quickly gained 100 pounds.

April Boicourt

I found Young and Raw via Facebook last January and signed up for the February 30 Day Green Smoothie Challenge. I wanted to lose some weight that I had previously lost but put back on after a pregnancy. The smoothies seemed like a great way to get more fruits and veggies in my life.

Julie Wilson

I am 56 years old, married to the love of my life, whom I refer to as my ‘granola’. I have 3 amazing adult children and 3 grandchildren.

This is my story.

Linda Kye

Over the last 10 years I had gained 30 pounds. Since I train Dobermans in Schutzhund it is difficult to move carrying around that much extra weight and I also really never felt very good.
