"So in short, seeing Elienne could change your life.  My wife and I had both settled into bad eating and exercise habits. We were not generally eating healthy (a lot of takeout), and though I was exercising regularly (I play football and rock climb), I was unfit and overweight. This made sport more of an exercise in frustration than anything else. 

Our GP recommended Elienne to us and we decided to give it a go. Since then, we have both steadily lost weight, and are healthier and happier than ever. 

Though my wife and I have quite different goals, Elienne put together a plan that doesn't require us to cook separate / different meals, and doesn't feel at all restrictive or rigid.

Though lockdown has prevented me from playing football with my team, I have managed to stick to an off-season training program. I don't feel like I am on a diet, and I haven't had issues with energy levels around workouts. 

I know that when we eventually return to the football field I will be one of the fittest in the squad, and my fear of getting benched or not getting the full 90min has evaporated. I am stronger and faster now in my 30s than I've ever been in my life, and it feels goooood." - T.VH

"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
