“Donna goes beyond just stating the facts on food. She is very “hands on” and worked with me as a complete individual, taking into account my personality, my schedule and my eating habits to help me come up with my own healthy, yet delicious and above all simple eating plan. Her vibrant energy is very inspiring and she is extremely knowledgeable. I would highly recommend Donna not only to actors, but to anyone looking to positively change their image, not only on the outside but on the inside too.”

“Shocking developments on the health front…and proof Donna Sonkin’s program works:  After a full physical in March my doctor reported that I am healthier now at age 37 than I was twelve years  ago when I started seeing him!  I’ve lost several pounds; my LDL   (bad cholesterol) went from 120 two years ago to 83 now, and my HDL (healthy cholesterol) climbed five points to 57;  my blood pressure is perfect and all other levels and functions are  exactly where they should be.  My doctor said he wished all his patients would adhere to a program like Donna’s.”

“Donna’s class is amazing!  She takes the meaning of health to a whole new level and teaches things you won’t find in health magazines or diet books.  Since I changed my diet, I have much more energy and have gotten lots of compliments about how great my skin looks.”

Sandi Wright

“I called Donna because I needed a change. I had reached a plateau with regard to eating and really wanted to learn more about food and the effect it was having on me. After seeing Donna twice, I felt an immediate difference! And after working with her for two months, I’ve implemented her strategies for changing the way I eat—NOT dieting. I feel leaner and have more energy

The initial consultation was eye-opening, and for our next session, Donna came with me to a health food store to shop. Donna is a wealth of information. In addition, she’s got great recipes which delicious and simple. I am now cooking more—not only for myself—but for my husband and two daughters (5 yrs & 3 yrs) and they are loving it! I never imagined that they would love Kale!!”

Liz Elkins, Actress

“I can honestly say that working with Donna changed my life for the better. She helped me make better choices for my health, not only in relationship to food, but in all aspects of my life. I have completely stopped using Splenda, which made my cravings for sugar decrease and my energy increase. I am no longer afraid to buy and cook with big leafy greens, like kale! I use her recipes at least once a week…they are delicious and nutritious. But also, Donna introduced me to my personal trainer, which has helped my body look better than ever. She supported me through a breakup. She introduced me to people who have helped forward my acting career. She is always there with a wealth of holistic knowledge in every area of life. With her love, support, wisdom and positive energy, Donna has guided me towards greater self-empowerment. I am so grateful to my work with Donna Sonkin!”

“Donna Sonkin and her beaming, beautiful and brilliant energy has given me the tools to help me soar into the next chapter of my life. I went into One on One for a FREE seminar on nutrition when I came home from tour. I honestly can say I have no idea why I even went. I am a healthy, active woman and I always have been. As soon as I walked in the room filled with Donna’s light and love, I knew I wanted to have what she had and I signed up (for Get Fit for the Camera.

I just knew that I deserved a gift. We all deserve the gift of knowing how to nourish our bodies.  I mark coming home from that tour and meeting Donna and her knowledge and care to share it, the next chapter in my life.   My body feels amazing, my mind is sound, my heart wants more and I have the energy to keep moving forward in this crazy business.  I am so grateful to Donna, she truly is a gift.  She knows where we are coming from as actors, musicians, artists, and really as human beings.  Donna fights the fight beside you for a better quality of life.  She creates a safe class environment encouraging risk and change.  Now, I get to pass information on to my loved ones and I, myself create change.  Don’t think, don’t hesitate, don’t walk… run to the phone and sign up for whatever this lovely lady is teaching.  Do it for yourself! You deserve it.”
