This new 28 day course combines the old 14 day Kickstarter and Stop Falling off the Wagon courses into one big super course that is sure to get you the results you’ve always wanted and this time they’ll stick! You’re not just going to be changing your diet, you’ll be changing your attitude towards dieting and your body, your relationship with food (don’t think your relationship needs work? see below).
28 days is all it takes to create new habits and change your lifestyle for good!
You won’t just follow an eating plan ‘because some expert says so’, you’ll learn everything you need to know about nutrition, food and weight loss so that by the end of this course you’ll be able to plan your own diet without any confusion. You’ll discover that it’s really very simple – it’s all the diets and the industry that have made it sound like some sort of rocket science.
You’ll learn about the power of unconditional self-love and acceptance.
Most women cannot accept their bodies and this leads to yo yo dieting – trying to make your body good enough so that you can be happy. You say ‘I hate my body. If only I could lose a stone or two and tone this flabby stomach – then I’d feel good enough, then I could love myself.’ This attitude leads to unhealthy crash dieting, punishing exercise routines and, ultimately, binge eating, weight gain and disappointment. This is viscious cycle is what’s crushing your self-esteem. This is what keeps the diet industry going!
There’s an easier way that’s very simple – start being nicer to yourself!
Accept yourself the way you are now. Say ‘My body is what it is. I accept it as it is. I love myself so much that I want to fuel my body with healthy foods and move it regularly because I deserve a healthy body. I enjoy looking after my body well, it feels good regardless of my shape/size’. It’s so simple yet so powerful. Focus and consistency is all it takes.

A holistic approach to weight loss leads to lasting results
Step 1: Educate yourself
Know the facts. We’ll go back to basics of nutrition, which is very simple, it’s just been made complicated and confusing by the diet industry. Learn about processed foods, food marketing and labelling so you’ll never be fooled by misleading marketing messages again. Knowledge is power!
Step 2: Commit
While healthy eating is fairly simple, changing your habits does take a bit of effort to get started so you want to be committed and focused. When you put the effort in during this 28 days, those new habits soon become your normal every day routine. It’ll be easy and enjoyable.
You must prioritise yourself! You are the most important person in your life. You are responsible for your life, no one else. So put yourself first because you deserve it. If you don’t prioritise your health you’re not going to be able to change it, it’s as simple as that! This course will help you examine your priorities and also find the confidence to prioritise your needs.
Step 3: Stop dieting, start living
It’s a lifestyle, not a diet – create a healthy routine for life, not just till your jeans fit. Eat to fuel your body, not just to lose weight. This is a lifestyle and for it to be sustainable, it has to feel good even before you get to your goal. When the focus is on health, you’ll start feeling the benefits after just a few days and that feels good! We keep it simple and doable!
Step 4: Change your thinking
The diet and fitness industries, along with the media, have brainwashed us into thinking that weight loss is hard. They have turned healthy eating into rocket science (note: healthy eating in the industry is focus on weight loss alone and is often very unhealthy) The truth is that eating healthy isn’t a punishment, it’s a treat. It doesn’t require will power, just the right approach and some focus. Losing weight isn’t hard, it can be fun and easy. We’ll clear up all these false beliefs and through various techniques, change our focus and train our minds to think more positively.
Step 5: Feed your soul with love, not food
Unhealthy relationship with food is the reason why you cannot resist all those foods you said you would never eat again. It’s why people comfort eat and overeat. It’s why people are over weight – we eat for all the wrong reasons. Food is meant to fuel your body, not nurture your feelings. We’ll examine your relationship with food and use various tools to make it healthier.
Add to that a healthy dose of unconditional self love and you will truly start enjoying this exciting healthy lifestyle journey! Realise that you’re good enough now, you are totally loveable. You don’t need to lose weight so that you can accept yourself, you are fine now. If you accept yourself as you are now, you’ll find that healthy eating becomes natural as you want to treat yourself with love and respect because you deserve it. Why would you punish your beautiful body by overeating junk food when you can nourish it with lots of delicious healthy foods that will make you feel good?
Food is meant to nourish your body, not to nurture your feelings.

What's the clean week?
This is a 7 day period during which you cut out all processed foods from your diet. You get all the info you need on the first day but you can choose when you start (I would recommend giving yourself 2-3 days to prepare). While I don’t usually advocate strict diets and lots of rules, it is good to be strict for a short period of time so that you give your body a chance to detox, cut out any bad habits, reduce cravings and, of course, also kickstart your weight loss and healthy lifestyle.
You can choose how strict you are during this week. The main thing is that you avoid all processed foods and stimulants. You can choose to eat normal (but ‘clean’) meals or you can do a stricter detox where you just eat lots of soups, green smoothies and light meals or you can do something in between. It is up to you! If you’re a first timer and your diet is really full of processed foods, I would recommend starting easy with proper meals so you can keep it up for the whole week!
After the 7 days, you can (and should) relax a bit and work on your relationship with food while continuing to eat healthy.
