    Before the Sugar Detox I was a little sluggish, overloaded and overweight. I was surely overdoing the sugar intake and the alcohol! By the end of the detox I'd lost 3.2Kg, I definitely have more energy and am enjoying getting out of the house and onto the beach or to the pool for some exercise. Herbal teas have become my staple, I really enjoy them. I certainly would and have recommended this detox to other people looking to improve their health and lose weight.

    Before the program I was suffering from bloating of the stomach, reflux, insomnia and depression. The Hair Tissue Mineral sample results showed I had heavy metal toxicity and high levels of arsenic in my system. Lisa quickly put together a program of natural remedies and a quality diet to help me repair, renew and release toxins from my body. After the first week I began to benefit in lots of ways. I was sleeping less but better quality sleep and my thoughts became more positive.

    After six weeks I lost 3 inches off my waist without exercise and 5Kg. After 6 months I was at my goal weight and I'd lost 10Kg and kept it off. Lisa did all this for me while I was living in a different city via the internet and phone and even after the program was complete she still keeps in contact for any further help. So change your life today, just decide. Many thanks Lisa

    I came to Lisa because I knew I needed to fix my diet, but I didn't have the necessary direction or motivation to know what to do. I was suffering from terrible digestive discomfort and constant tiredness.

    Since working with Lisa, I have not only found out the foods to avoid for my symptoms, but also I have learned how to eat better for a healthier life. I'm a different human being! My whole journey was a simple investment for large rewards! Thanks Lisa!

    I started the Sugar Detox along with other work members.

    I was thrilled with the results;

    * 6kg loss in weight, stayed off
    * Less bloating (that looking pregnant appearance)
    * More regular comfortable bowel movements
    * Better, clearer skin, eyes and hair. I had some bumps on side of face most of my life – disappeared and stayed away.
    * Less mood swings a better balance in my emotional outbursts
    * Slept better at night, not waking with that hung over dry feeling
    * That afternoon 40 winks – gone! Energy to enjoy life and go go go
    * Pleasure to drink water, taste and eat yummy “real” food.

    Since having my children in my 40’s I have struggled with my weight and consistency of anything, so making it move felt impossible. My irritable bowel issues didn’t help, flaring up at times was so disheartening. This is the only thing that seemed to work for me. Got the weight moving, gave me energy and made my life so much more pleasurable.

    Lisa was there for me along the way with questions about digestion, regularity, skin changes she had a simple answer each time. Her support and generosity of time and information was amazing.

    My family benefited as they had alternatives with me like carrots with peanut butter, hommus and so on. My daughter 3 has bowels like me so her yogurt topped with chai seeds helps her too.

    Life changing. Thank you Lisa from all of us. In such a busy, hectic, sugar filled world it’s so nice to know you're there for me in my corner supporting my health and longevity.

    Before the detox I was always hungry and in need of something sweet. I learned how bad my habits were. I thought low fat products were the way to go but didn't realise how much sugar is doing damage and making me hungry and crave sweet food. After the detox I felt good. I lost 2.3kg, I no longer crave sugar and I feel full for longer.

    Lisa, your passion for good food is infectious. I have started reading labels and simply don't buy things that have half a dozen E numbers in them anymore! It takes a few more minutes each day to make a salad however it is very yummy and time well spent. I would recommend such a group detox to anyone as we have had your tireless and non-judgmental support.

    Your knowledge of food and what's in it is amazing. I thought my choice of food and diet was pretty good, but you re-educated me. It's amazing what great results you can get from small changes - if everyone visited you (and listened to you!), there would be a lot more healthy, happy and energetic people in the world - well Sydney anyway! I certainly reached my goal in terms of weight loss. 

    I feel really good about my body and people have complimented me a lot at how much better I look. My clothes are falling off me so I have to go shopping! Thanks so much Lisa.

    I only did the sugar detox out of interest, I already thought I was perfectly healthy.... Obviously not. Eliminating sugar and coffee from my diet made me feel amazing. Once I got over the initial sleepiness, I felt calm, energised and focused. I was more productive than ever and didn't experience any symptoms of PMT. I lost 3kg in the first 10 days and was really happy with my new body tone. While the detox is a temporary measure, I've learnt a lot that I can use for life.

    Lisa helped me to understand about foods and specifically which foods help increase energy levels. I’ve introduced new foods into my diet that are healthy for me and my whole family. I have enjoyed taking the challenge of a detox, which I may not have done without her support.

    During the Sugar Detox I lost 1.2 Kg and overall 10cm's . The cms were more important to me as I really had not recovered from Christmas, and then Easter splurges.

    Before the detox, I thought I felt physically and mentally OK. However, by the second week, I felt lighter, my head felt clearer, more clarity. I had more energy, which is definitely important in my role. I also found I slept so much better through the night, and woke refreshed in the morning.

    The detox instructions were clear and easy to follow.
    By the end of the detox I felt great, and have decided to keep a lot of the foods in my diet. I wasn't having enough veggies in the day and too many muesli bars. That's all changed now.

    I learnt that when I was hungry at home I would eat cheese, then more cheese, Oh! and cheese.. My snacks are now, veggie sticks with hummus, or tuna & bean dip, or guacamole, almonds, or an apple. So lots of healthier choices.
    I would definitely recommend this detox to other people - It is a good way to change those bad habits, and make yourself aware of the amount of sugar in a lot of the foods we eat.

    I'm still losing weight (albeit slowly) since the sugar detox last year and I'm 3kg away from my wedding weight!!!! I still want to be a few kg's lighter than that, so I'm still working very hard at my diet and exercise. 


    My diet is way better than my exercise regime, due to time constraints but I feel I'm doing well. As far as my diet is concerned, I've cut out ALL SUGAR (yes it's true - no sugar over Easter either!) and it's easy easy! By sugar, I mean anything processed with sugar, like chocolate, cereals, lollies etc... I still eat fruit and I still eat yogurt every night after dinner as my 'treat', but it's an organic, low in sugar yoghurt and satisfies me. 

    I don't eat much bread and I have now got the entire family eating mountain bread and I'm eating a little more meat than I like, but often I'm happy with a salad for dinner with a little feta and that satisfies me. 

    So, hopefully when I see you next, you'll be pleasantly surprised :) It's a wonderful lifestyle change and I feel fabulous for it. So much more energy!

    Lisa is clearly a leader in her field. Her nutritional knowledge is broad and encompassing and her warm and professional manner immediately sets you at ease. She gave me complete clarity of my nutritional needs and was able to simplify the often confusing messages about food.

    Before the detox I felt sluggish and bloated. At the end of the detox I'm feeling good. Nice to have dropped the few kilos that have been hanging round for a while. I would recommend this detox to other people looking to improve their health and lose weight.

    Before working with Lisa on the Road to Wellness Program, I struggled with weight loss as I was trying to follow diets which were difficult to follow or to maintain, and after a while I gave up.

    Since starting the program, I learned great things and how stress can play a big role in not achieving my results. I feel healthier now, and I know this is an ongoing process not just a temporary diet.

    I look after what I eat with more confidence than before as I learned how to prepare my meals, so I can make my own choices with confidence, and I learned what I can eat when gathering with friends.

    I am losing weight gradually without feeling I am on a diet, it is a change of mindset on how and what we should be eating.

    When I look back at the investment, I feel it was a good decision because I learned many important things on Wellness that are very valid now and all my life. It is challenging at the beginning but having structured topics every week makes things easier.

    Before coming for treatment I felt bloated, lethargic and unfit. It’s a work in progress but already I feel more energetic. Life seems more exciting, more enjoyable. It’s the best thing I’ve done for myself in a long time.

    Before working with Lisa on the Digestive Wellness Program, I struggled with bad digestion (IBS symptoms), headaches/migraines and sinusitis. Since starting coaching, I feel much better: my digestive symptoms disappeared, the headaches reduced and I lost 6 kg! Now I know exactly what foods to avoid if I want to keep feeling good. Many thanks Lisa for all your guidance!

    Felt a lot less bloated, my tummy felt "at ease" and much flatter, which was great. Do seem to have more energy. My skin is clearer and I lost 2.5Kg. Made me realise just how much hidden sugar I consume, and how much I pick at food all day. I'm now aware of how much soft drink I was drinking, and how at night time after all the kids are finally asleep I slump in front of the TV and eat lots of junk.

    Very happy that I did this, and am quite amazed that I stuck to it really well, though I did finish a day early. Would really like to do it again in 6 months.

    I found it a lot easier the second time around. My skin is great.

    I recently participated in Lisa’s sugar detox program and it was great. Going back to food basics and not consuming anything from a ‘packet’ really had a positive effect on me  both physically and mentally. I found that even within the first few days, I wasn’t bloated after meals and I didn’t have sugar cravings in the afternoon. You don’t realise how much rubbish is in our everyday foods, even the ‘healthy’ ones, until you start reading labels…it’s frightening. I learned so much about food in general and how to cook a healthy, preservative free meal, it’s become a normal part of my everyday diet now.

    At the end of the detox I feel great, am really proud of myself for lasting 14 days. Thought it would be difficult but I got organised and it actually was easy. Definitely opened my eyes to all those hidden sugars! I found myself very clear headed and focussed and less stressed. My hair was noticeably softer and I've not changed hair products. Started to enjoy preparing the meals and really enjoyed the flavour. Will try to keep it up as far as not eating processed food with high sugar levels and will cut down on my dairy intake. Haven't wanted to eat chocolate yet either. Love Quinoa and find myself more attentive to reading the labels. Definitely more aware of other alternative food products out there now. I lost 1.2kg and 4.5cm
