    With Bruce’s assistance, I dropped 75 lbs
    “With Bruce’s assistance, I dropped 75 lbs and have successfully maintained it for the last 15 months. My success is due to establishing a change in food selections and a specific exercise plan which were easy to implement. The plans were established by Bruce once he recognized the right combination for my weight lose and maintenance.”

    -Francesca B

    Thank you for your help, support and kindness
    “Good afternoon Bruce, Thank you again so very much for your help, your support and your kindness.
    My two appointments with you were a real gift!
    Have a beautiful day, ”

    -Helene P

    I am already feeling less tired and stronger
    “I have been using the recovery protein powder and have been following the nutrition plan for about a month now and I am already feeling a lot less tired, stronger and just more alert.”

    – Samantha B

    In just 6 weeks I have already lost 10 pounds (of my 15-pound weight loss goal)
    ” I consulted with Bruce, who is very knowledgeable in many areas of nutritional counseling and also supportive, about shedding a few unwanted pounds and increasing my energy levels for my busy work schedule.

    By following the nutritional guidelines Bruce customized with me to only included foods that I would actually eat and eating the proper balance of the right foods, I have increased my energy during the day which has helped me to sleep more restfully through the night. Not to mention I am eating more food than ever and am continuing to boost my metabolism, lose the unwanted fat, and lower my BMI. ”

    – Mel S

    Your presentation was amazing
    Your presentation was amazing; it was exactly what the athletes needed, it opened a lot of eyes and I think most of the athletes were completely shocked at what they need to be putting in their body in order to optimize performance, as well as identifying the deficits in their own nutrition. It was very specific and tailored to the athletes which was great – the thing that gave you the most credibility with the athletes is the examples you used, you didn’t just spit them facts – you explained WHY it is important and HOW it will help them train and compete more effectively.

    It was short, concise, and you really hit home with a lot of the points you made – the athletes really took to what you had to say, you really commanded their attention and got them interested in the topic. At the meet over the weekend, the athletes who have started to eat more protein and take to your guidelines have already began to notice a difference.

    -Alex D Swim Coach

    “Hey Bruce, you cannot believe the amount of people that have complimented me as to how good I look since starting your diet!!!”
    – Greg S

    I will keep following my nutrition program
    “The first time I visited Bruce Bonner and Living Science was about a year and a half ago, I was 5′ 7″, and weighed 135lbs. After following his advice, taking daily supplements after workouts and on ice sessions, I am now 5′ 10” and have gained 25 lbs of muscle! I will keep following my nutrition program throughout the summer and I look forward to being even bigger and stronger when I go away to prep school next season.

    Bruce’s 110% Hockey Philosophy

    WHY we do it this way: a player needs to know what he/she specifically needs for his/her body type, activity level, body composition goals. Furthermore, players may have food intolerances/allergies, special health conditions like asthma, or even need to address constantly being sick or injured, which have a significant relationship to diet/lifestyle. Using technology we can get a great idea what areas in the body need to be supported the most and create a custom nutrition program.
