I wanted to take a
moment to thank you for the wonderful
service and even better results I have
experienced in the last six weeks while on
your program. Not only have I lost 23 pounds
in six weeks, but I have become motivated to
begin an exercise regime for the first time
in my life. Everything has been great—the
food and variety, as well as the personal
service, not to mention the attention to
detail. The convenience, along with
everything else I've mentioned, has made
losing weight so simple. I owe a big thank
you to 5 squares. I so appreciate everything
you do to accommodate me, especially with my
numerous eating restrictions. Your
creativity seems boundless, and I look
forward to all the creative and new things
you are going to make in the future. It is
obvious that one of your primary goals is to
satisfy the taste buds all the while helping
your clients lose weight. This diet has been
an amazing godsend. Thank you.
Monica Lynn and her
5 squares team know everything about
nutrition and exercise. Monica has also been
a great listener and motivator. When I first
started the program, she said, “You can do
this and I am going to help you!” I’m not
sure why I believed her—maybe it’s because
she is so gorgeous and living proof of what
her philosophy can do. The food is so
delicious and abundant. I especially loved
the oatmeal-crusted pork (what can I say,
I’m part German!). Another favorite of mine
was the fish. I had never really been a big
fish eater but trying out new ways of
enjoying it, actually made me look forward
My friends and family could not believe that
I was eating so healthy and actually
enjoying it. They had seen me on countless
diets over the years and I must admit, I
wasn’t the most cheerful. I explained to
them that this was not a diet but a
lifestyle change. I was doing something
positive instead of beating my body into
As happy as I was with the weight loss, I
was pleased that I was finally on my way to
a healthy new life and a new way of eating.
In six and a half months, I lost the 60
pounds that had once been a barrier between
me and the world. I revamped my wardrobe,
met a guy, and found a new mindset. I am now
the proud new owner of a great body, and an
even greater attitude.
My name is Stacey
Lei Krauss. I am a fitness educator in New
York City and have been training people to
live active lifestyles for over 15 years. I
have never claimed to be a nutritionist, and
have outsourced dietary professionals for my
clients when necessary.
As a result of this intense lifestyle, I
have been struggling with my weight for
almost 10 years, but not in the traditional
sense. I struggle to keep weight on. Of
course, the average person will have an
issue with my true confession; however, the
reality is…a weight problem is a weight
When I spoke with Monica Lynn about my
concerns, she had me do exactly what I’ve
asked of my clients; journal my food intake
for 7 days. I was amazed at what I found.
Although I was eating tremendous amounts of
food, I was always filling up with
carbohydrates. I felt justified eating what
I craved; since I worked so hard, I deserved
to eat my comfort foods. The food was not
sustaining me. I was constantly tired, and
never able to gain the weight that I needed
to stay strong and energized through my
I started on 5 Squares soon after Monica
told me about her program. It is sound, and
safe, and I love the thought of never having
to cook!! The food is amazing. Over three
weeks, I gained 5 pounds (the most in years)
and I had an abundance of energy. I was
fully functional and active on only 6 hours
of sleep per night. I no longer needed
afternoon naps or caffeine to get me though
my toughest workouts. I was stronger than
ever. My clients all noticed my increased
energy, and they began the program…to help
them lose weight. Everyone that stuck with
the program was successful.
5 Squares changed my
life. Although my entire philosophy to
fitness and wellness is balance, I recognize
that 5 squares helped me to truly understand
and apply a balanced, healthy eating routine
to my own life.

I have had a weight
problem my entire life. I was a chubby kid
and an overweight teen. By the time I was
25, I was morbidly obese.
Finally, I met a girl who told me she used
to be 75 pounds heavier and had lost the
weight through a program called 5 squares.
She said the food was really good and it was
easy to stick to the program. She said
Monica was very warm and inspirational, and
would help me every step of the way.
When I first joined the plan, I was a bit
nervous; there was a lot a food and I wanted
to make sure I was doing the right thing.
It never seemed like I was on a diet; Monica
actually encouraged me to eat. She explained
that it wasn’t the amount I was eating but
the choices I was making. She showed me how
to eat smaller meals throughout the day to
keep my hunger down and my energy up. I felt
better almost immediately.
I lost 100 pounds!!! I am in control of my
health and my life. It may sound funny
because I am a guy, but I really like to
shop for clothes now. It is great to look in
the mirror and be proud of what I see. I
don’t mind the women checking me out either.
I recommend 5 squares to anyone who is
looking to change their life.
Each time I quit
smoking I got heavier. I quit three times
before I finally made it stick about ten
years ago. Over the last ten years, I’d try
dieting a few times a year but never lost
more than five or ten pounds, which I’d
quickly gain back.
So I am glad and shocked to be able to say
that I lost 22 pounds in four months on 5
squares. The weight came off in chunks. I
didn't quit drinking--I have wine on the
weekends—and periodically I need a dessert
or a nibble of something I'm cooking or
something off someone else's plate. But the
weight comes off anyway.
Amazingly, most days I feel incredibly calm
about food. It’s a whole new feeling for me
not to be desperately hungry or worried
about being hungry. I have control over the
choices I make and my health.
I just wanted to
reiterate how helpful 5 squares has been. I
have lost ALL my pregnancy weight and then
some. My pre-pregnancy weight was 133 and I
ended up at 145. After delivery, I couldn't
exercise and still had an appetite. With 5
squares, I was able to continue eating, but
do so in a controlled manner. Now, four
months later, I am at 125 pounds and all my
pre-pregnancy jeans are TOO BIG!!
5 squares is a healthy way to lose weight.
Thank you!!! I feel great and look better
now than before I had my son!!!
