I’m Sheryl,

someone who walks the talk

Losing weight is one of the greatest goals you can achieve in life.
I know how it feels because I have been there.

I lost 30 kilograms 23 years ago by changing my lifestyle to one of healthy eating and exercise.  It was a life-changing journey which ignited a passion for nutrition and the desire to help others look and feel their best. 

I gained an extra 40 kilograms of pregnancy weight in my 30’s which I successfully lost.  Over these years I have learnt many tools and strategies that have enabled me to keep this weight off. 

Emotional Eating

Overcoming Sugar Addiction

Dealing with IBS

Gut Health

Low carb eating

Ketogenic eating

These are my areas of expertise as they have been a key part of
my journey over the past 23 years.

My food plan is based on real food.  I follow a low-carb, healthy-fat diet and this way of eating has been the key to being able to stabilise my blood sugar levels and maintain weight.  Best of all, I don’t count calories and the food I eat is delicious!  My journey has included issues with emotional eating and food addiction.  I can happily say that I am now a recovering sugar addict and am able to share my strategies for overcoming addiction with my clients.


My own journey with losing and maintaining weight has inspired a passion for nutrition and continuous learning.  Ten years ago I turned this passion into my career, creating my own weight-loss coaching business, Why Weight Nutrition. 

I called my business Why Weight because  it represents two key things to consider:  Why you want to lose weight and really understanding WHY you have a weight problem in the first place.  I don’t believe in diets – I want people to achieve permanent change.
