Frequently Asked Questions

These are some of the questions people most frequently ask:

What makes you different than other weight loss mentors?

What separates me from other weight loss mentors is that I’ve been in your shoes. You'll be relieved to know that I am not one of those ‘make it look easy’ fitness junkies or ‘always been skinny chicks' who just can’t figure out why you can’t stick with counting calories or an exercise routine - I actually used to be obese! Like you, I can’t be bothered to count anything and personally, I would much rather ‘work’ than work out!
 
But what really sets my work apart is that I take an inside - out approach to weight loss. The Delish Diet is the world's most holistic approach to letting the weight go. We don't just focus on the body, but address the metaphysical and emotional causes of your weight gain too.
 
Getting thin is an inside job! The root causes of weight gain are invisible. They are found beneath the skin, inside the mind and behind closed doors.
 
When you work with me 1 on1, we delve deeply into what is going on your life, so that you can use your weight loss journey as a catalyst for life transformation.
 
When you work with me privately, you lose more than JUST the physical weight, but the weight of the world off your shoulders too!

Is this a low carb diet?

No, the Delish Diet is not low carb, but it is carbohydrate strategic.

When desiring to lose weight, one must be strategic when it comes to carbs because too many (even healthy ones) can stimulate fat storage hormones and yet too little can can weaken the endocrine system leading to a slower metabolism.

We don't count carbs, but eat them in a very strategic, yet intuitive way that doesn't trigger fat storage.

The closer you get to your ideal weight the more balanced your blood sugar becomes and as a result your carb tolerance increases - and that means you can include them more often without gaining weight.

Is your approach Keto?

The Delish Diet is NOT keto.

While the keto diet is excellent for getting past a weight loss plateau or used periodically as a healing or regenerative diet, I don’t find it a desirable (or natural) as a lifetime strategy.

Here's why…. 
1) it requires proper formulation and supplementation to prevent negative side effects (and I am not just talking keto flu or rash, I'm talking nerve, muscle and heart symptoms).
2) far too many people are doing it half ass (they are not actually in a ketogenic state) and they include unhealthy processed foods like diet sodas, processed low carb foods and artificial sweeteners which are not sustainable for health
3) the ketogenic diet was never intended for weight loss, it was originally developed in the early 1920’s as a therapeutic diet for epilepsy
4) finally, being in a ketogenic state is only natural to humans periodically during certain seasons and environmental conditions - to accommodate for food shortages - not to be a way of life

In my opinion if you have to count your macronutrient ratios or take supplements to make a diet healthy, then that is a sign that what you are doing isn’t natural or sustainable.

I can't be bothered to do either - and that is why I developed the Delish Diet - to get you into fat burning mode without having to go too low carb or permanently live in a ketogenic state.

You don't have to be in a ketogenic state to burn fat anyway. If you don’t plan to make the ketogenic diet your lifestyle, then you can expect to gain all the weight back when you reinstate your old ways - just the same way you can expect to from all other diets you temporarily go on.

The Delish Diet is not a temporary fix, it is a permanent diet and lifestyle change - for permanent results.

If you are not willing to live the Delish Diet way indefinately, then don't even bother. You are destined to keep stugglking with your weight, so you might as well join the fat acceptance movement.

I don't mean to be rude, I  am just being honest. I am saving you from time, money and energy wasted doing diets that don't work long term. Just accept that you are fat and focus your energy on something else.

At the same time, consider that if you are not healthy, you will not be able to reach your full potential in your other endeavours either.

Which brings us back to the root cause of being overweight.

If you are overweight, it is because you are not healthy.

You need to prioritize health. Weight loss comes as a good side effect of optimal health.

The Delish Diet is a diet and lifestyle in line with your natural human diet and habitat.

When you get back into alignment with your true nature, you get healthy and your weight normalizes.  

Can I do this as a vegan?

Although the Delish Diet in general is not vegan or vegetarian, it can be customized that way.

The cleanse we use is 100% vegan friendly.

I was vegetarian for 13 years so I have a lot of knowledge, understanding and empathy for the decision not to consume animal products.

At the same time, consider that if the vegan diet isn't working for you anymore to keep you healthy - and as a result of that you are no longer at a natural weight - then it may not be right for you anymore or at this time.

You may temporarily (at the very least) need to use animal foods as medicine to bring your body back into balance. 

If you are overweight - then your current diet obviously isn't working for you regardless of how clean or compassionate it is.

Ask yourself if you want to be right or if you want to be healthy.

 

Who are your clients?

I work with women who are ready now to finally end their struggle with weight and are willing to do what it takes to let it go once and for all.

My perfect clients are women who like to go deep.

You should be super-ready to get going (like yesterday) and want to know exactly what steps to take to lose the weight and keep it off permanently.  

I am going to be honest with you, here is what you are going to need to be willing to do….

  1. attend all the sessions in your package within the stated time frame
  2. do the Delish Diet Deep Cleanse for 3 weeks minimum to maximize your results
  3. eliminate everything from your kitchen that makes you fat and replace it with foods that get and keep you thin
  4. throw out all toxic personal care and cleaning products and replace them with natural non obesogenic ones
  5. go ‘all in’ for a permanent diet and lifestyle change
  6. do things outside of your comfort zone (ie: cook new recipes, try new foods, cleansing, fasting).
  7. study the e-course materials in between sessions and come to your  sessions prepared with your questions
  8. do the homework
  9. get organized and prioritize meal planning and prep on a weekly basis
  10. cook, learn to cook or hire a personal chef
  11. keep getting back on the horse (indefinitely) to achieve and maintain my ideal weight

If you are not willing to do even one of the above, then there is no point in working together. 

On the other hand if  you are 100% committed to doing whatever it takes, until you reach your goal, I can't wait to be by your side to witness your transformation from the inside out!

Who do you work best with?

There are 3 kinds of women I work best with (because honey I've been where you are and I understand your struggles!)….
– women entrepreneurs who have been hiding behind their computers and are now ready to stop using their weight as an excuse and finally record videos, get on stage and ‘strut their stuff’ in front of the camera.
– women who are up to big things in this world (authors, artists, speakers & coaches) and want to feel like how they look on the outside is in alignment with their work and an equal match to their inner beauty,
– work from home women and stay at home moms committed to being the best most beautiful accomplished version of themselves possible – inside and out!

How can I get the best results in record time?

Do all of your homework. Be totally committed to your own success. Understand that this is a process, a proven one, that only works if you work the program, take massive action and implement all of the steps.

Clients who  diligently apply every step and keep living the Delish Diet way permanently, successfully lose the weight and keep it off!

How quickly can I expect to lose weight?

You can easily lose 10-15 lbs in the first 3 weeks if you follow the program impeccably.

How quickly you continue to lose weight depends on how damaged your metabolism is, how long you've been overweight and how much you have to lose in the first place.

While we all want the quickest results possible, the most important thing is that you keep losing consistently and sustainably. I will be by your side with proven strategies to help you move past weight loss plateaus.

The point isn't just to lose weight. The point is to keep it off.

After the initial 15lbs that comes off with the cleanse, you can lose up to 4 lbs per month. This may sound painfully slow  but it is a healthy amount that reflects the permanency of your results. The truth might hurt, but I'm committed to transformation and permanency, not to fast results that inevitably lead to rebound weight gain.  

I don't care how long it takes. What I care about is that you get to your ideal weight and stay there. 

If you are just looking for a quick fix and you are not interested in a lifestyle change, I am not the mentor for you.

The more out of balance your  body is, the slower you lose weight. You have to manage your expectations.

As you become healthier, you lose weight quicker. 

That means the closer you get to your ideal weight, the faster your results.

Which is why you MUST decide you are in this forever, and prioritize health before what you see on the scale. 

Anyone and their dog can formulate a restrictive plan with a ton of exercise to get you losing a lot of weight fast.

The results of that are that you will gain it back (and more) the minute you go back to your old ways - and you will - because willpower runs out. You've probably already experienced this cycle enough times for yourself to know it's true.

You don't need another diet plan, you need a paradigm shift. You need to adopt a new way of thinking and being around food.

Your mentality about what it takes to lose weight must change.

You must accept that you are going to have to keep eating healthy to maintain your weight loss. 

Some of your current ideas about what you think is healthy are based on half truths and some are just plain wrong. You need help to see your blind spots.

If you think eating healthy is boring and bland and you just can't imagine becoming a health conscious person, then you haven't tried my recipes!

The point of working with me is learning how to eat your way sexy and keep eating that way forever for optimal health and permanent results.

The reason I know that you can 100% do this, is that eating healthy and eating the Delish way tastes way better than anything you can't imagine living your life without (and by the way, I teach you how to simultaneously raise your standards around food and do this without being a purist or having to live in isolation).

Sure, you can do another temporary diet with flashy results or decide now to learn what you need to know to make powerful diet and lifestyle choices that lead to permanent results.

Once your body is back in balance (once we have addressed your weight loss blocks and you've achieved your ideal weight) - you’ll have the leeway to eat what you want  in moderation again - just the way a naturally thin person does (because you’ll have come to be one)!

I work best with women who are willing to go deep, so be prepared to be authentic, vulnerable and real to finally get to the root cause of your struggle with your weight.

What type of personality do you work best with and what is expected of me?

My programs are created for people who are excited and dead serious about using their weight loss journey as a catalyst for life transformation.

I work best with self responsible women who are willing to do the inner work. Women who don't sugar coat the shit that isn't working in their life, but will tell themselves the truth and fiercely face their fears.

You will be expected to take serious and consistent action.

Here is a snap shot of the qualities of my best clients…

– do exactly as they promised they will do
– they do it quickly
– they love trying new things with bells on

Who are my programs not for?

I am very selective in who I work with. I cherry-pick my clients, choosing to (gently) turn away people who aren’t suited for my programs - based on their hesitation or lack of commitment (it wouldn’t be fair to them). People who can't make quick decisions, implement what I ask in a timely manner and don't show up fully in all aspects of the program, simply won’t get the results.

I won’t work with whiners or complainers, as well as individuals who consistently make excuses for not doing the work or 'know it alls' who think ' I already know this' or challenge every aspect of the program.

Let's be honest, if you aren't getting results, you don't know how or what you are doing - you just think you know. Understanding isn't knowing -doing is.

My programs are not for people who prefer to avoid their feelings, like to pretend everything is ok (when it isn't) or who want to run away from or ignore their problems.

Getting to the root cause of your weight gain requires putting your ego aside and doing the inner work, embracing vulnerability and being honest about where you are really at. 

I want my clients to get results and the only way that is going to happen is if they show up fully, follow the program with close attention to detail, ask for help when they need it and don't 'hide out' when they struggle.

How much do your services cost?

I offer a variety of programs and services at different levels of time, money and energy investment. 

The first step to working together is to book a 'Slim, Sexy & Satisfied Breakthrough Session' where together we will determine which approach is best for you, based on your unique situation and depending on the root causes of your struggle with your weight.
