About Vanessa

Hi, I'm Vanessa; I'm a certified health and weight loss accountability coach passionate to help those suffering like I was. I had been obese for most of my adult life, I had tried every diet known to women ( and we find them all!), and nothing was sustainable!

Following the traditional advice to eat less and move more that did not work for my body, I could eat lettuce and gain weight! I felt resigned to being overweight with little hope of change...to make a long story shorter; my life changed when I went searching for medical help for my mother, who was 68 years old, type 2 diabetic, obese, on insulin, on metformin and a cocktail of other pharmaceutical drugs, on oxygen, in a wheelchair and in and out of the hospital with Type 2 Diabetes complications.

In a desperate attempt to not lose both parents in one year, I went searching for medical expertise to help my mom, who felt she was destined to be dead by spring. I flew home to Canada and spent a month with my mom, cleaned out her pantry/fridge/freezer, cooked a three month supply of food to leave with her, and I returned to Australia hoping for a miracle. If I was going to ask my mom to go way outside her comfort zone, I thought I should support her and do the same, and I began to live a healthy ketogenic lifestyle. Within 45 days, my mom was off her insulin injections, oxygen, and out of the wheelchair. She was able to move and walk better than she had for the past ten years, she was losing weight, and her doctors were over the moon with her turnaround.

Before I started, I had plantar fasciitis in both feet, I had arthritis in my right hand, skin tags, constantly tired, and often ill with colds and chest congestion, and I was always hungry. I didn't know what it was like to be full.  Today I am pain-free, very rarely catch a cold, I've lost about 45kilos/100 pounds, I'm by no means an Instagram model, but I'm real, and I'm winning, and I want others to win as well. I've taken all my lessons and education and designed my own method that heals body, mind and heart in a manner that is different from every other diet out there. This was important because as good as a keto or low carb lifestyle is, it will fail you if you do not address what is in your head and heart. We need to be a different person when we reach our goals; otherwise, we will fail and revert to old beliefs and habits.

I have passionately designed my programmes to focus 20% on the food and 80% on what goes on in our head and heart. My method allows you to never feel deprivation, to release beliefs that no longer serve you, to begin being your best version of yourself even before you feel you have achieved it! This is not your 'standard' keto coaching programme, and I'm not your standard keto coach; I've been you! I actually don't sell or teach just keto; you can google that! What we do together is release what is holding you back, and that is more than just the weight!
