Marie lost 27kgs

I’m a completely new person. I am confident, energetic and so happy. I did have my doubts and had ups and downs along the way, but having Lynda to keep me accountable was definitely the factor that drove me to keep going.

Accountability, does it work for you?

Nearly every new client who comes to see me tells me that they need accountability. Yes, most have a reasonable idea of what they should and shouldn’t eat, but if there is no one to report into it can be difficult to keep the momentum going.

Getting back on track after a break

I think like most people, I find that getting out of routine sets me up for making decisions around food that aren’t always particularly wise and the thought ‘I’ll sort it out when I get home’ prevails. That’s fine, as long as you do, before the habits become ingrained.

Is fasting right for you?

What words immediately come to mind when you hear the word fasting?  Hunger, deprivation, crazy people, not going there... Fasting in some form or other has been around for a very long time, but in more recent times there have been a lot of studies which point to many health benefits which may come from fasting.

Aimee's nutritional journey

At 25, I was at the peak of bulimia, was over-exercising up to 12 times a week, and had a restrictive diet dictated by the binge, punish, reward, binge and repeat cycle. I was size 6, 10.1% body-fat, had been ammenoreic for 2 years, and was constantly exhausted and cold.

Mia has lost 10kgs

In April 2017 I was the unhealthiest I'd ever been. I'd lose weight, gain weight, not know which foods were causing the loss or gain and just keep going around in circles - only to end up back at the same starting point.

Is Summer socialising stalling your progress?

For a lot of people summer can be a challenging time of year to work on fat loss. There seem to be a lot of social occasions, impromptu BBQ’s, invitations to pop around for drinks – you know how it goes. One minute you are smack on track with your eating, next thing it all goes out the window once the nibble platters appear.

How can I lose weight fast?

Isn’t that what we all want? Especially after the holiday season. Fast. Fat. Loss. Why not throw in easy, effortless fat loss? If you read the magazines and look at all the advertising that bombards us in January, from celebrity diets to promises of big fat losses from drinking powders instead of eating meals, you can lose weight fast – BUT, can you keep it off?

Why are we fat?

Studies show that having a high level of blood glucose can be a factor in developing dementia and cancer, as well as having a role in many inflammatory conditions. The sad fact is that way too many Kiwis don’t look after themselves. A poor quality diet, obesity, stress and lack of regular exercise all increase your risk of becoming a Type 2 diabetic, along with the resultant health issues. Are you complacent enough to let it happen to you?

I've lost 15.7kg living the Low Carb, High Fat lifestyle

I’m 15.7kg lighter, with 10kg of that being pure fat, I’ve lost 16cm from my bust, 13cm from my waist and 14cm from my hips, so on the outside I feel great, and I’m probably only half way through my journey!  But it was the inside that worried me the most, well that has improved immensely too – my HBA1C has reduced from 45 (it should be under 41) to a very healthy 34, my liver function has improved and the doctor has said I’ve no longer got hypertension.
