What people are saying

Frequently asked questions

Low carb is the foundation food plan of Why Weight Academy.  You will be given a food plan template with suggested portions of protein, carbohydrate and fat.   Number of meals/snacks per day will depend on how much weight you need to lose.  In the eating guide you will find all the different options for protein/carbs/fat along with a meal options sheet and recipe guide.  This way of eating is based on simple, real food.  No supplements or special foods are required.

No.  The benefit of eating low carb is that you will be having portions of healthy fat throughout the day.  Fat helps to keep you satiated so you shouldn’t be hungry.

Yes.  It is possible to be vegetarian/vegan and still follow a low carb plan. The key is to make sure you are eating enough protein throughout the day.  Vegetarian/Vegan protein options are included within the eating guide.

No you don’t.  With the food plan you get a template of portions for protein/carbohydrate/fat that you should follow each meal.  On the meal options sheet you will find lots of suggestions for different meals.  But, it’s up to you which meals you choose to eat.  Low carb eating can be as simple or as complicated as you want it to be.

You can join Why Weight Academy from the 1st – 10th January 2021.  After this time, the doors will remain closed until March 2021.

Pregnancy is an important time and your needs are unique.  If you are concerned about your nutrition during pregnancy, please book in a 1-1 appointment so we can discuss your individual needs. 

Yes.  If you suffer from irritable bowel syndrome, it is possible to follow a low-carb plan and lose weight.  The key for most people is to limit your intake of high FODMAP vegetables as it is often these high-fibre vegetables that can cause irritation.  I suffer from IBS and have managed my symptoms really well 

Yes.  You don’t have to do group coaching if you don’t want to.  The option is there if you want extra accountability and the chance to connect with me for greater guidance and accountability.    If you want a membership without group coaching, the cost is $19 per week.  With group coaching the cost is $29 per week.

No.  You don’t have to weigh yourself if you don’t want to.  This is your journey and all that matters is that you are getting results you are happy with.  Everyone has their own goals and weighing yourself is not compulsory.

There are no contracts – you can cancel your membership anytime you want to.

Membership to Why Weight Academy is $19 per week (paid monthly, first month payable when you sign up).  If you want access to group coaching calls for greater accountability, the fee is $29 per week.  There are no joining fees.

Joining the Academy gives you discounted rates!
