Why you became a Banting Buddies weight loss coach?
I have always had a passion for nutrition and healthy living. For me this is not just a weight loss program, it is a lifestyle change. I have lost weight through living the LCHF way but I have gained so much more with better health. I wanted to put this passion into a business so that I could help others to achieve their goals too. Banting makes so much sense to me – our parents’ parents used to eat like this and they showed great longevity – we are getting back to basics. Nothing has ever worked for me like Banting does – it is so easy, delicious and completely satisfying and I have seen incredible results in other people too. It is very easy to implement and by making a few tweaks you will notice a huge difference.

How have you personally benefited from Banting?
Weight loss, more energy levels, improved skin and no more cravings. Food is a big part of my life as well as my business and I was a little obsessed with food (like a lot of people are). The food I can eat now satisfies me so I don’t think about food all the time. Banting has exposed me to a whole new world of food that I for so long thought was forbidden because of fears of disease and inflammation. This has all been proven wrong.

Other interests and background info:
I received my diploma in nutrition through Plaskett Nutritional Medicine College about 8 years ago. My passion for nutrition and becoming a mom to my two gorgeous boys Josh and Matthew lead me to opening my own baby and toddler food business called Nutri-Kids. I am now so excited to be able to help the moms and dads gain their health and reach their goal weight.

I am delighted to have done this programme, especially with Carly. For the first time in many years, I feel that there is very real hope for my achieving (and sustaining) both the body I have always wanted and a healthy, sustainable and sensible approach to food. Carly has been supportive, inspiring and truly brilliant in helping me move closer to my goals. She has a wonderful way with people and has been ever-enthusiastic, empathetic and always willing to assist beyond the call of duty. She has helped reprogram my body in a truly liberating way. I have learned so much, had fun doing so and made a solid start on my ‘healthward’-bound journey.Michelle (Tokai)
