Nutrition AND good digestion is the foundation of optimum health...
I have been in the health and wellness industry for over 10 years and have seen many positive changes in my health and that of my clients.
The concept of ‘food as medicine’ has been around for centuries. Hippocrates – The Father of Modern Medicine believed that disease was the product of diet, environmental factors and living habits; that is still the case today.
Having had many health issues in my early twenties (bad PMT, headaches, migraines, crap skin, water retention, digestion issues), I set out on a mission to get healthy after refusing to buy the next dress size up! “I just want to be healthy”. I remember saying these words as if it was yesterday. I really wanted it. My desire for change was strong. The goal to get fit, lean and strong came later. My healthy goal, along with eating better quality foods to reduce my addiction to carbohydrates was achieved within a very short space of time. Of course, this didn’t happen over night. To get healthy and stay healthy involved a level of commitment that many of my clients struggle with.
Because of the great results I gained through simple dietary changes, whole body cleanses, weight training, cardio and yoga, I know its possible to stay youthful, lean, look great and feel amazing even in your 40’s; all without botox or anything else artificial!
The picture you see here is me when I decided at the age of 40 to enter a Body Fitness competition six years ago. It was my first and I came third place- something I am very proud of. It was a scary experience walking out on stage in a packed out theatre (mostly men!). I learned all my turns and poses online (thank you You Tube!). Apart from one young lady, the rest of my competitors were in their 40’s. I tell you this because so many people ask me if I’ll be cutting down on my training now I’m getting older. What the hell? No way! Exercise is part of my DNA. I am fit, healthy and as lean as I was in my twenties; in fact I think I look much better now. I can wear beautiful shapely dresses that compliment my figure if I want and when I want. And that is what drives me to keep on doing what I’m doing.
I believe so much in the power of nutrition and its profound impact on health, that I changed from working for someone else to having my own business where I could share my passion and knowledge to help women aged 40 and over who want to kick sugar to the curb, eat well, be healthy, look young and stay young.
Changing your eating habits can be difficult which is why I created the Body Overhaul Program® - a 4-week whole-foods step-by-step program designed to cleanse, nourish, detoxify and rejuvenate your body. Cravings for sugar will be non existent by the end of this program. You’ll feel lighter, have more energy and your taste buds will have changed so much, sugary foods won’t even appeal to you any more.
This programs achieves REAL RESULTS for women who want to be healthy and eat nutritious tasty food.
