My journey to become a Nutritional Therapist started officially back in 2013, but if I’m honest I think most things that have happened in my life have lead me to this point, so let me give you a bit of background.
I, like many women (and young girls) had dieted for most of my life, starting at the tender age of 16 with a well know diet shake in my bid to lose a few pounds, after about 3 days I couldn’t stomach it for breakfast anymore and promptly gave up with that idea!
I continued throughout my adult life trying to lose weight and signing up for the next new thing on the market, with it's promise of lasting results and that it would be the answer to all my problems. The trouble was they were not the answer, and instead lead me down a path of constant yoyo dieting, which took it's toll on my health and my metabolism to boot!
Anyway, fast forward to 2011 and my body had decided enough was enough and I found I could no longer lose weight by following these 'diet' plans and exercising, so I went to my Doctor begging for help; I was at the end of my tether, at an all-time low; eating to make myself feel better, then feeling fed up because I had put more weight on. I didn’t have a clue what I was doing wrong, so I didn’t have a clue how to put it right!
My Doctor was amazing and really supported me to understand how to eat properly (something that previous ‘diet’s had never done) and do the right type of exercise as well. Soon, the weight started to drop off and I was feeling great; people were asking me how I did it!
After many years of genealogical problems I ending up have a hysterectomy in 2013, and the tips I had picked up about food and nutrition started to help me again, and I knew I had to find out more and share what I had learn with other women to help them, so I decided to study as a Nutritional Therapist and Life Coach which enables me to combine these skills to help women like you.
