Why you became a Banting Buddies weight loss coach?

I am passionate about helping others achieve a healthy lifestyle.  I have fought to lose weight for longer than I care to admit.  I tried it all.  From exercising to within an inch of my life to weighing every morsel, let’s not forget the myriad of pills and magic potions that I spent a fortune on.  Overwhelmed by feelings of guilt and constantly failing even when I was following all the rules.

Banting changed my life!

I felt moved to sharing this life changing experience.  Becoming a Banting Buddies coach gives me the opportunity to help others to lose weight and gain health.  I am committed to help my clients reach their goals.


How have you personally benefited from Banting?

The Banting way empowered me to change my life.  Eating real, whole food the Banting way is easy to do and it fit my lifestyle perfectly.

Not only did I lose weight but, I feel energetic and strong and recover faster after a workout.  I definitely gained confidence and  mental clarity.


Other interests and background info

Family and relationships have always been my life.

I am creative.  I love quilting, painting, embroidery and generally leaving things more beautiful than when I found them.  I enjoy CrossFit, sailing, cycling and hiking and could never be away from the sea for too long.
