Sarah Frost Crew – Head Nutritionist, Sports Nutritionist
Sarah Frost Crew grew up in a family that emphasized nutrition and the healing powers of food. She works as a teacher and lecturer to change behavior patterns that cause physical and emotional distress. Sarah turned to The Plan at age 30 because she was taking 5 medications for moderate postpartum depression and unexplained pain throughout her whole body. Four months after finishing the 20 day plan, Sarah was able to come off of all 5 medications and remains off of them 4 years later.
A turning point came when Sarah’s oldest child, 7 yr old Emma, had daily pain and was diagnosed with ADHD and restless leg syndrome. Her prognosis was a regimen of serious medications. Sarah contacted Lyn-Genet, who walked Sarah and Emma through a custom Plan designed for Emma. Within 6 month Emma was out of pain, no longer recommended for medications, and is now achieving awards for her focus and performance.
Sarah has taken her lifelong commitment to health and empowerment to help people worldwide. She is working with Lyn-Genet one on one to specialize in pediatric, teen and family nutrition.

Laura Kimmel – Plan Health Coach
Laura grew up in the kitchen. It was there that cooking, drinking, and laughing as a family inspired the real joy of cooking. Her creative spirit and passion for food and fun led her to open her own catering business that she owned and operated for 20 years.
Laura began struggling with health issues that nobody could fully diagnose or explain. She gave up gluten, sugar, potatoes, pasta, and chocolate, yet weight gain, migraines, hormonal imbalance and skin rashes intensified. This went on for 18 years until she was diagnosed with Lyme Disease in 2015. It was at that point that she found out about The Plan and it changed her life. Not only did she shed the unwanted weight, but she rid her body of the inflammation that was causing so many other issues. Most importantly she realized that her passion was to help others using The Plan.
Her personal mantra: I want to have passion, make a difference; have relationships that grow; have integrity and do the right thing; use the power of great ideas to be creative; hold myself to the standard of excellence; have balance; have fun; be successful. If everybody wins so do I.
Jaci Stephens – Plan Health Coach & Sports Nutritionist
In college, my life changed completely; I found myself sick often and very easily. Most my time was spent in a doctor’s office, urgent care clinic or hospital. After trying the conventional path for a few years, I turned to the plan with unexplained chronic sinusitis, ear infections, strep throat, chronic nausea and vomiting, severe acid reflux, digestive diseases, severe migraines and eczema. Let me tell you- I thought I WAS eating healthy. I had tried, gluten-free, dairy-free, paleo, even training for a 5k.
On the Metabolism plan, I not only conquered my battle with constant illness, eradicated eczema, nearly eliminated all migraines; but I lost 65 lbs.!! All along, my body had been sending me signs and signals, I just didn’t understand. This is what I love most about the plan; It teaches you to speak the language of your body. If calories worked, we’d all be skinny! But it’s not about calories, self-control, deprivation or extreme exercise; it’s all about catering to what your body needs and wants… finding YOUR healthy.
Saloni Mehra – Plan Health Coach, Sports Nutritionist
I first heard good things about The Plan from a person I hold in high esteem. “If it worked for her it must be authentic” I bought The Plan books, read cover to cover and did The Plan for a year, on my own. I had never known what it was like to have a stomach “at ease” till I did The Plan. The stubborn pounds melted away and I was so happy that I had invested in myself. I take my love of Asian and Indian cooking to transform meals into culinary delights.
A year after I started The Plan a family member had breast cancer. I recommended that she work with Lyn-Genet and under Lyn’s guidance I learnt to tweak menus to suit her daily needs and her fading appetite. The Plan helped her battle the big C and I was inspired to study this anti-inflammatory protocol directly with Lyn-Genet to understand how foods can restore one to best health and best weight. One of the best things about being a health coach is that I have been able to build close relationships with my clients when guiding them through their Plan journey.
Donna Huggins RN – Plan Health Coach, Sports Nutritionist
I have worked in the conventional health field as an RN for over 10 years. After spending much time in the hospital setting as an ER nurse I decided to change my emphasis to a more holistic approach to health. I believe that prevention of the disease process is the key to health. I have always been intrigued by food and it’s healing properties. I read the Plan and immediately began to follow the book menus on my own. After 27 years as a vegetarian, it was obvious that an omnivore diet was better suited for me. All my menopausal weight dropped quickly and my psoriasis went into remission.
I feel so blessed to work with Lyn-Genet and the Plan family. It is very rewarding to be able to help people find their specific non- reactive foods and exercises to promote their best heath. The Plan works for everyone because no two individuals have the same genetic make up or dietary needs. Everyone can build their own specific Plan. I am currently working to bridge the gap between conventional and holistic medicine. One day I hope to be a holistic doctor.
Puja Surtani – Plan Health Coach
Puja grew up in a family where food = love and caring, and hence any resultant weight gain was regarded as family DNA since most family members around her were overweight!
After struggling and failing to achieve that “Healthy Weight” for 10 years despite crazy diets, long walks and jogs Puja realized that no matter how much she worked out and how little she ate nothing changed ! Her skin was starting to break out and her weight was now shifting to her belly which was never the case before.
Then one day at a family dinner she heard about “The Metabolism Plan” and her life changed. She dropped 17 pounds in 1 month! Learning to Plan has taught her to love and respect her body more, appreciate it for what it can do and truly hear the messages it was sending her when things weren’t going right.
As a Health Coach Puja would love to help other people find a way to love and honor their body’s individual needs and teach them to decipher the messages that are being sent to them everyday so they can make the best choices and live their best life.
