I was fed up with being tired, living an unhealthy lifestyle and struggling to deal with the everyday stresses that life brings us. Then I found Monica, a qualified nutritionist and lifestyle guru, who helped me change my whole way of thinking about my lifestyle. Monica encouraged and supported me throughout my journey, in fact she walked the journey with me. Her insight into my condition was simply amazing. Her knowledge and understanding of the direction I needed to take was exceptional. In five months I feel so much better, I have got my zest for life back and I have the added bonus of losing an amazing amount of weight in a healthy way, all of which wouldn’t have been possible without Monica’s support and help. Monica is simply superb and would I recommend her to someone else – absolutely in a heartbeat.
