"Meeting Elienne was one of the best things that happened to me in 2020. I, like many, had a tumultuous and uncertain year; lockdown took its toll on me, resulting in weight gain of 15 kgs, as well as being diagnosed with anxiety. I was not in a good space, but within two months - literally - Elienne turned this around. She designed an eating plan that was easy to follow and healthy, but that also focused on the food I enjoy. She also taught me the importance of listening to my body and took the time to motivate me, which has improved my relationship with food and exercise. I coupled her advice  with an exercise program led by a personal trainer. And honestly, in two months, I lost 13kgs! My journey with her has been absolutely incredible. I will also never forget this quote she shared with me: “we have been given arms and legs, and so we have been designed for movement”. I can't recommend Elienne enough!" - TA 

"I just wanted to check-in with you because I imagine it must be very rewarding to hear success stories thanks to you. T has lost 15,5kg and I have lost 8,5kg in the last 5 months. I'm sure our scale isn't very accurate, but either way we've been steadily losing, despite interruptions like Christmas and holiday season, and a return to lockdown. So we're very happy. Thanks so much for your help.hank you for helping us get there, we've got to stay on the wagon, but I think we will. You've made it very do-able, like you said originally, sustainable not punishing. You pulled us out of the lockdown doldrums and stopped us mid-slide down what was proving to be a very quick, slippery slide to overeating becoming a norm. Thanks again." - AS & TS

"Two months ago I was tired, bloated and in pain every day from IBS. I didn’t know what to eat or what not to eat. But since I started seeing Elienne 8 weeks ago I have lost 11 kg, have absolutely no pain and have enough energy to exercise almost every day. I can see and feel the results and am starting to get fit. I don’t feel hungry and I am not obsessing about food at all. I feel like a totally different person." - KS 

"Elienne has helped me turn my health around in the best way possible.  She has helped me find a new healthier normal way of eating that is more sustainable than any diet I have tried. 


My eating plan is easy to follow and flexible and the wide range of meal options and ideas means I never get bored of eating the same thing and I don't feel hungry. 


Elienne is also really understanding and supportive and I look forward to my weigh in sessions with her.  She is always able to answer my questions and concerns with factual information in a way that I can understand. 


During my weigh in sessions she also actively helps me to identify ways in which I can improve my relationship with food in a supportive and non-judgmental way. In the four months that I have been seeing Elienne I have not been sick once after struggling with my health a lot in the past.


I feel so much better about myself and have a much better relationship with food and my body. As a result of all of this I have lost 26 kg and am well on my way to a healthier lifestyle." - K.T
