What our coaches offer

We believe education and support is the key to weight loss success. Banting Buddies therefore offers weight loss coaching programmes that empower you with the knowledge and skills to make wise food choices. Your coach will motivate, advise and encourage, while holding you accountable to your goals.

Banting doesn’t involve expensive pills, shakes or injections.  No weighing food or counting points. The time has come for everyone to enjoy real food, feel satisfied after a meal and get their health and waistlines back.  All that we require of you is a mind willing to learn, a belief that change is possible and a promise to yourself that you are worth the effort.

Our coaches can offer you the following programmes and services:

  • 21-day Re-boot  – one-on-one email support programme
  • 8-week Get Banting – group online support programme
  • 3-week coaching programme (one-on-one or small groups)

What our clients say

I’ve been on the programme for about 5 weeks now and I am truly very happy with the progress I have made thus far and I feel great!! The information I get every week is very helpful and educational. I enjoy reading through it, and to have the chance to fall back on something if need be. My coach, Antoinette is an absolute gem and I am grateful that I got the chance to get to know her and to work with her, even over the phone

Vanessa Botha

I started my Banting journey on the 01 July, I was very confused about this “high fat” diet I had heard so much about, but being desperate to lose weight I thought this would be the best way of learning about it. My Banting Buddy, Merle, was so helpful! She gave me so many meal ideas and made me understand the technical side of Banting, which now makes so much sense! Surprisingly I even went from a hater of cooking to a Masterchef!!! I now love my kitchen as I love the food I’m eating! I honestly don’t think this would have been such an easy transition if it weren’t for Merle and the Banting Buddies 6-week coaching programme. My weekly weigh in kept me in check, and I looked forward to finding out more recipes and info about Banting. I lost weight, cm’s, became a cook and gained a friend.

Dear Anita, I have loved our weekly Banting Buddies meetings. Being accountable to you has helped me stick with the programme. Tasting new foods and trying new recipes has been really helpful – you know I love to bake. Thanks for going the extra mile and always being encouraging.
