Ditch the Diets
Break free from
and live a life that
makes you sparkle
Feed on Life is for the woman who wants to be at ease with food, her body and live a life she loves
I want to share with you a pain free solution to enjoying life, completely diet free.
You see, I believe dieting stops us from living , right now. We wait, we put on hold, all those things we want or dream of doing. We tell ourselves that we will be happier or life will get better, once we lose some weight.
`I`ll change my job once I`m slimmer and feel more confident about myself`.
`I`ll feel sexier and more attractive once I lose a few kilos. Then I`ll start dating`
`I`d love to play tennis again, but I`ll do that once I`ve got back to a size 12 `.
Feed on Life is about helping you to create the life you want…. Now. Not next month or next year once you`re slimmer, more confident or feeling more attractive.
The Feed on Life concept does this by encouraging you to look at all the parts in your life.
Yep, it`s a Mind, Body, Soul thing.
What we feed our mind, body and soul has the potential to nourish and fill us up. Or do the opposite. Drain and deplete.
How does this affect how and what I eat?
Well, we overeat or emotionally eat for a reason.
Something is missing in our life. There`s a void or emptiness that makes us feel uncomfortable. So we fill this by turning to food.
My aim with Feed on Life is to show you how to have more of the `fill me up` moments from life.
This means you really do start living fully. Suddenly food and how your body looks isn`t the main focus every minute of the day.
Life feels good and satisfying. You experience peace and pleasure. Your weight becomes a side issue and before you know it, your body naturally sets itself to a weight that is right for you.
We`ll do this in a gentle, curious and fun way. We start with where you are now, with no judgement and absolutely no weighing. We`ll explore what is and isn`t working for you and we`ll come up with a plan.
When you take really good are of yourself – your mind, body and soul- you begin to sparkle and discover the real you. You step fully into your life being yourself and loving who you are.
The true, authentic woman who starts accepting and loving who she is regardless of how much she weighs … all without a diet or scales in sight.
Thanks so much for being an amazing coach – I really miss our weekly meetings!
I was feeling pretty overwhelmed when I first came to see you – moving my whole life to the other side of the world, starting up a new business, getting my daughter settled in a new country had all left me feeling exhausted and stressed. Working 24/7 meant no time for me and I was feeling overweight and unhealthy. I’d struggled with my weight my whole life, yo-yoing up and down, but in recent years I had led a very healthy lifestyle and felt fit and healthy.
Moving back to NZ and taking on a stressful job saw things spiral out of control for me. I didn’t have time to plan healthy meals, or any meals for that matter, and long hours meant no time or energy for exercise. It didn’t take long to pile on the pounds and this only compounded how I was feeling.
When I first met you I felt like there was no time for anything but work – so much to do and not enough time to do it. Even taking time out of the business for an hour each week to meet you felt like a challenge however I quickly came to realise it was a lifesaver. Just that time where I had to sit, contemplate and breathe meant my head started to clear. I had to dig pretty deep during some of our discussions to try and understand how I was really feeling and why. With your help I came to realise what a powerful tool understanding is – it’s very difficult to fix a problem when you don’t understand it and without your help I would never have identified that I use food as an emotional crutch. Knowing that, it’s much easier to address emotional eating. Some of the techniques you gave me I still use religiously and some I still have to remind myself to employ. Coping with stress is much easier and I think I’m much kinder on myself now and I take time out when I need it without feeling guilty.
Life is still crazy busy and there are stressful times but I can now recognise when I need to take a step back, breathe and take some time out. I make sure I take 5 minutes to meditate and clear my head when I wake up and I have managed to factor exercise back into my daily routine.
Thanks again for all your supportive, non-judgmental time and wise words. It was a pleasure working with you - Del
I found the Coaching Sessions to be so very helpful and encouraging.
My biggest tangible or most significant change I have noticed from Coaching has been noticing myself taking small steps towards my goals. I am kinder to myself when I have hiccups.
I would describe Yvette as encouraging, kind, thoughtful and accessible I would recommend Yvette to my friends and whānau.
Thanks so much for all the guidance you gave me. I will come back to my notes from our sessions to give me impetus - Giarne
Yvette was amazing to work with.
I have thoroughly enjoyed working with Yvette and I have appreciated her wisdom, patience and knowledge. I found her session very helpful and thought provoking. The resources and session notes she provided after each session were invaluable to me. I would highly recommend her!. - Jenny
