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!

Do you know that you thrive with accountability and support when trying to make a lifestyle or health change? Do you know that the most successful people in business, sport and life all seek support from coaches and mentors? Do you want to finally know what it is like to end the diet rollercoaster, to have food and body freedom, to love the life you live at any size but living the healthiest version of you? Then let's see what level of support suits your needs and goals.

I have 3 levels of coaching:

  • Group Accountability Membership,
  • One-to-One Coaching Weekly, Claim Your New Body & Mind: my 12-Week Transformation Programme includes a bonus private virtual weekly group call for extra support and community, or
  • Executive Coaching Programme. For the person who wants a totally personalised experience to your schedule and goals, this is the Rolls Royce of support & accountability. Often right for the busy professional who needs the quickest route to success, & knows the value of an executive coach.

Not really into the group thing? Want to go at an accelerated pace, love everything personalised just to you, perhaps have a more complicated relationship with food or your body? Then you are likely someone who values and benefits from a one to one coaching experience. Let's chat to help you figure out what is right for you.

If you are tired of all the diet industry noise, if you want to truly do it differently, I invite you to get curious, I know this can be life-changing and I invest my heart and soul in helping you to achieve the life you desire and deserve. I want Keto Buddies Health and Life Coaching to be the last Google search you ever need to do around your desire to release weight.
