Why you became a Banting Buddies weight loss coach?

I have always had an interest in health, nutrition and alternative healing therapies. My mother’s 10 year battle with cancer sparked further research into how food and nutrition affects disease and also healing within our bodies. Seeing what an incredible difference the LCHF model made to her life was truly eye-opening and it completely changed everything I thought I knew about ‘healthy eating’. I believe so strongly in the low-carb high-fat way of life and want to empower and educate others to overcome their struggle with weight loss and disease.


How have you personally benefited from Banting?

I have always battled with my weight since I was a teenager and have tried every extreme diet or ‘quick fix’ pill out there only to put the weight back on again – and then some. For the first time in my life I am in a place where I feel healthy and have managed to not only lose the weight but keep it off! Best of all I don’t feel hungry, starving or deprived (I love the food I eat) and my IBS, food sensitivities and allergies have basically disappeared! I am a Banter for life!


Other interests and background info:

My biggest passion aside from health and nutrition is travelling. I am in my happy place when I am able to go on travel adventures and experience new places and cultures. I also see myself as a real foodie and I love cooking and trying out new recipes. It’s currently also a very exciting time of my life as I’m planning my wedding to the love of my life in March 2017.
