if you are feeling unhappy with your weight

You don't have to put up with it.

If you are worried about your health……

Hating getting dressed each day because nothing fits.

Dreading  every time someone posts a photo of you on Facebook.

Thinking: “I’ll start again on Monday” but by lunchtime on Monday you are off the wagon again…….

I get it - I've been there!

I turned to food as a way of dealing with grief. 

…and gained 20kgs in one year!  

I felt like I was watching life from the sidelines – seeing my friends have all the fun while I was too embarrassed to participate.

Diets worked for a short time but I couldn’t stick with the restrictive eating plans and eventually gave up, gaining all the weight back (plus interest!)

I know how it feels to live in fear of food

Starting the new diet on Monday full of enthusiasm, ending up a bumbling mess by Friday, getting stuck into the kids’ food and eating all the things.

Having all the good intentions, only to feel deprived, hangry and just exhausted from having to stick to a food plan that made me feel hungry all the time.

Scared that the minute I put something delicious in my mouth I wouldn’t be able to stop.

This was my life until I discovered how to eat delicious food and and make weight loss EASY.....

Easy because I finally believed in my ability to follow this plan for LIFE

And I have!

I have kept my 30kgs off for 23 years now, gaining and losing 40kgs of pregnancy weight along the way.

If I can do it, you can too

I decided to change careers, go back to University and become a qualified nutritionist.  I was determined to help women get off the dieting bandwagon for ever.

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 will get access to the private website with all the resources as soon as you sign up so you can start straight away.

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 

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.
