“I am currently undertaking a personalised weight loss package from the lovely Melissa of Melissa Eats Mindfully. Over the past few years I have gained a little extra weight, finding it hard to shift. Melissa entered my life at exactly the right time for me.
Finally ready to make the commitment I had my first consultation with Melissa- the best decision ever. She put together a realistic, achievable program, giving me all the tools and guidance I needed to start my journey. The detailed, personalised diet plan made life so easy – [by] knowing exactly what delicious meals I [would be] eating [and] with yummy dessert options, I didn’t feel like I was missing out on anything.
Melissa is always in contact, checking in with how things are going and always sending new ideas and motivation [tips]. I have had amazing results – losing 4 kilos [I’m] already halfway to my goal, and in a realistic time frame which makes it achievable to keep the weight off long term. I could not recommend Melissa highly enough.” Since her testimonial, Bianca has lost another 2.3 kilos.
“I am pretty active and play a lot of sport but as I get older and get injured more, I’ve realised that I want a healthier lifestyle. For a while I’d wanted to start eating healthily but never knew where to start. For me, the hardest part was putting in the effort, as I don’t have time to make complex meals…Melissa listened, understood my situation, gave me options and made a program which didn’t require a lot of change – rather substitutions which were easy to implement. I was still sceptical about it but decided to give it a go, and within the first three to four weeks I noticed some changes. I no longer felt lethargic at work, lost a little bit of weight and generally felt healthier. It’s now been about six months and healthy eating is now part of my routine; I’m probably in better shape than I was when I was more active/playing more sport.”
