The formal stuff is that I have worked in the fitness industry for 20 years and I am also a trained nutritional therapist and Pilates instructor. I am a mum and a wife and I run my own business.
The real stuff is that I have struggled for most of my adult life, with food, in one way shape or other. Either by controlling it (or failing to), by controlling exercise (or failing to) or by comfort eating, crying, bingeing and depriving my way through my emotions and my life.
The wake up call was perimenopause - the bit before the menopause - when the things I was doing to be fit and healthy were no longer working. I was struggling with sweats, sleep issues, shouting at the dog and getting more and more stressed. I eventually realised that I had been trying to do it perfectly (doh!) and failing miserably. So I decided to create another way.
You 100%, absolutely CAN be healthy and happy and be just good enough.
Plus it's a heck of a lot easier than the Big Diet way of binge/deprive way! And there is ALWAYS room for good chocolate too!

“I've lost weight, feel healthy, feel happier, have more energy and all because I broke out of long developed habits which with hindsight were not good for me - guidence, instruction, encouragement and support made all that possible and I really, really believe I won't fall back into old habits because I no longer think of those foods I used to eat as nice or crave them .”

“I have learned more about emotional and physical hunger and that has been really useful. Also about mindful eating - I was always careful anyway to sit down with my food, and not read etc, but it is an extra layer to think about what I'm eating and enjoy it more.”

“I feel generally happier, more confident and more sociable since doing Fiona's programme. As well as being lighter and feeling fitter.”
