My 30 year career as a successful weight loss consultant came about because I was a fat child.
A very fat child.
And my personal trials and tribulations to lose weight led me to the point where I decided to study nutrition to help people enter that wonderful space where they are at their right weight and food is not their enemy anymore.
Imagine a time when you want to buy dress for a special occasion. Won’t it be amazing to go into a shop, try on an fabulous dress which fits ‘just right’ ..and you feel confident in it?
It is totally achievable. Not only my past clients, but I am living proof of that! And I’ve achieved this by eating plant based foods. But more on that in other posts….
With the right dietary knowledge and guidance you’ll lose your constant focus about what to eat and what not to eat…You will not be driven by cravings plus you’ll reach your goal weight and stay there.
And the word DIET will be deleted from your vocabulary.

Yum. Does the fruit nullify the calories? No? What a shame….
So how did my weight loss journey help me become a nutritionist? My mother was a great help when I wanted to lose weight as a teenager. She got hold of a cookbook with calorie counted meals and I ate only what she served me.
As an adult I had an idea: what if one could help people lose weight with the same concept of mum’s portion controlled, healthy meals?
I went to work making this a reality. I studied nutrition and dietetics; in the meantime we experimented changing mother’s portion controlled single meals into commercial quantities. It was not easy to work out how to make a viable business out of it.
In 1981, together with help from my entire family we were ready to set the world on fire.
Except the world was not yet ready for us.
Our MASSIVE commercial kitchens with huge gas stoves, glistening walk-in fridges and freezers took a while to become a busy place.
However, once the concept become popular, our business grew beyond our wildest imagination. We ended up with 21 franchises, helping thousands of people per week to eat right and lose weight.
So over the time of my weight loss career, the numbers added up to hundreds of thousands of people having been helped by my original idea!!!
Although now moved on from that business, I am still passionate about helping people with their nutrition and weight loss. I keep studying on a regular basis to ensure I keep up-to-date with all the latest scientific information so I can help you better. The office wall now sports various new diplomas: Detox Specialist, Advanced Clinical Weight Loss Specialist, Vegetarian and Vegan Nutrition Adviser and Nutritional Therapist.
As you can see, you’re in good hands.
So visit these pages on a regular basis to learn more about the latest on successful healthy weight loss and do try some of the recipes.
And when you visit my recipe section, you’ll notice that they are Vegan.
Why? Well, you see… after 30 years of studying nutrition and weight loss, I now eat only plant based foods. This way of eating gives me the very best results. No hunger, no counting calories, no more issues with bad cholesterol….I just eat yummy vegan food and stay slim. How good is that!!!?
Therefore my recipes are without any animal derived ingredients. On the other hand I fully respect those that eat meat, fish and dairy. Like my husband, for instance….and my personal choice to omit animal based food from my own diet does not cause him any issues at all.
Nor do I preach to him about the benefits of my way of eating more than once a day 🙂
When I create weight loss plans for people, I always take their eating preferences into consideration.
The vegan recipes I offer in my posts are simply an invitation for you to (seriously) consider eating a few dishes per week that are plant based. Try it. It’s an easy way to ‘up’ your healthy fruit and vegetable intake and start the road to a healthier, slimmer body.
Meanwhile Princess and I look forward seeing here you here next week.
