Why you became a Banting Buddies weight loss coach?

I am passionate to support my clients to reach optimum health and wellness and have been doing so since 1998.  I have been assisting people to shift the excess weight and changing their lifestyle habits since 2008, by helping them to make better food choices, providing an individualised weight loss regime, helping them with emotional eating and shifting emotional blockage around food, body image etc.  This is a lovely add on to the existing tools I already have available to help my clients to change within.  Weight loss for everybody is very individualised and I enjoy helping my client to find out what works best for them.

How have you personally benefited from Banting?

It was wonderful to find a better energy source than carbs as I am already wheat and gluten intolerant.  My constant hunger has subsided.  I can go without a meal without going into a panic.  I have much more energy, especially when I exercise.  I can go on much longer in gym class than my gym buddies. My overall wellbeing is just so much better.  My depression state has also lifted.

Other interests and background info:

Although I am not a nutritionist (yet) still working on it, I am passionate about nutrition and health.  As weight can have a very large emotional component, I have qualified as an EFT (Emotional Freedom technique) practitioner.  Creator of the CHANGE within program – this program will support your emotional needs while being on your health and weight loss journey.  For personal enjoyment I love playing piano and writing music and one day would love to make my own CD.  I am blessed with beautiful twin girls and they keep me on my toes.
