I had PCOS. I was addicted to sugar and noticed I had gained a significant amount of weight over the course of a year. I realised I had to do something NOW! A friend recommended Sonia Salim and told me she was a health coach rather than a nutritionist. Her plans and the factual information she told me about PCOS opens my eyes about the adverse affects of added sugar in overall health. I started to see cookies and brownies differently and completely unnecessary as an everyday treat. The whole foods I was assigned on the easy to follow plans kept me full and satisfied and eventually regulated my monthly cycle
Whilst I was going through a separation with my husband of 20 years, I reached out to food to help me fill the void and avoid making a final decision. I was on an emotional journey as I had to face up to some truths that I had denied before. I became addicted to diet-sodas at work not realising how much sugar and caffeine was in them. This made my migraines more frequent. It seems that I gained 15llbs overnight. So I decided to take back control of my weight and my life. I joined a gym and contacted Sonia Salim. She gave me a diet that complimented my workouts and helped me sort out my thoughts and emotions by listening. Slowly I stopped turning to food to self-medicate. And it worked!
I have metabolic syndrome. I seldom exercised and ate all day long. I didn’t know the danger of processed foods on my health until I met Sonia. She emphasised via her meal plans and one on one sessions the importance of a whole-foods based diet, and a change in detrimental habits. The recipes she gave were easy to follow, and are based on the local ingredients. She helped my pin-point the areas in my life, that could be the root cause of my over-eating. She encouraged me to start daily exercise and now never miss my walk. I’ve managed to bring my weight down slowly but surely over the months. And my blood-glucose level is down to normal.
