Diet and exercise need to be balanced in order to achieve successful weight loss. You can exercise as much as you'd like but if you are not eating healthy, you will not receive the full benefit of weight loss. We will discuss ways to incorporate healthy eating into your lifestyle and create together an individualized plan to achieve your goals.
Weight management, using my expertise, improves many medical conditions including high blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes, pre-diabetes or hyperglycaemia, knee and back pain to name a few.
Some people have a long term struggle with food intolerances, not really knowing what they are, yet bearing the pain or social isolation because of the symptoms. Often food intolerances affect women as females have more mast cells (from the immune system) in their gastro-intestinal tract. Food intolerances however are not food allergies and can not be detected with a blood test. Yet intolerances trigger an uncomfortable response, and that is very individual.
I can help you identify your food intolerances, get rid of the worst of these symtpoms, and help to re-introduce these foods over time, to get on with living your life.
Detoxing will clear out toxins, otherwise known as free radicals, from your body and give your digestive system a break to heal and restore naturally.
One of the best ways to detox naturally is to fast. Safely fasting and only fasting just enough to be effective makes all the difference.
Your current readiness for change and how you relate to food and your appetite will drastically alter how effective weight loss and detox will work. By working together on your goal we will set you up for successful detoxing.
Nutrition is at the centre of your long term wellbeing as evidenced by the Blue Zone Diets. Read more at https://www.bluezones.com/research/

Weight loss using a very low calorie diet to for 3-5 months can reverse diabetes (Type 2 diabetes) .
