I don’t want to just give you standardised a “diet,” I want you to be educated and change from the inside out. I want to give you a holistic plan that focuses on longevity, sustainability, and vitality, not just appearances. I want to give you answers to why you have failed before.

With a comprehensive and holistic approach to weight loss, I will guide you on a journey that reaps long-term success. Our team specialises in obesity and individuals weighing over 100kg, with our live-in weight loss program is designed to maximise results for those wanting to lose weight and keep it off.

We not only focus on the physical aspects of your weight, but also your mind frame and mental health. We work with you to find the reasons why the weight gain occurs as it is usually a symptom of underlying issues. We work at a cellular level to identity the potential causes of slow metabolism, weight gain and fatigue to restore your health and vitality back to optimum. With a strong focus on mindset, we’ll be able to discern the causes of binge-eating and comfort-eating to give you the tools to take control of it for lifelong weight loss results.

I have been specialising in weight loss for over 25 years and as weight management coach I have helped thousands of people lose weight and keep it off. The health industry and weight loss retreats follow a one diet fits all standardised approach. Every week there is a new diet Dr Atkins, Paleo, Keto, intermittent fasting, CSIRO and there are many more, they all produce results…but which one works for you and why? Why can one person try a diet and get good results but not for someone else…what’s going on? Before I used Metabolic Typing I had inconsistent results with my clients and I want to share my knowledge in this area with you.

What is Metabolic Typing?

Metabolic Typing is based on the bio chemistry of your body and when you eat for your metabolic type you will have sustained energy, no cravings, feel satisfied and have good weight loss. It takes the guess work out of what and when you should eat and it does not involve calorie counting.

Metabolic typing is really just fancy talk for figuring out how your body processes what you eat—more specifically, how your body deals with the three basic macronutrients in food: carbohydrates, proteins, and fats. Imagine that you are a furnace: your body takes the food you eat and burns it with oxygen to convert its caloric content into energy. This process is known as oxidation, the fact that we all oxidize the nutrients in our food in different ways is the reason why a particular diet will work for one person and not for another. If you know more about how the nutrients in your food act on your system, you can avoid a lot of unnecessary pitfalls and really maximize your results as you continue on your journey toward total health.

I have found that fast oxidizers do better on high protein and high fat diet and if they follow a low-fat diet, they will have poor weight loss.  Our guests who have stayed at other weight loss retreats and health retreats have told me they had very poor weight loss of less than one kilo after two weeks following a low fat diet but after participating in the Chi of Life program and changing their diet to a high fat nutritional plan lost over 5 kilos in the same period. Knowing your metabolic nutritional type is essential for the best results.

Live and Dry Blood Analysis

There’s more to losing weight than just exercise and diet alone and there is not one strategy for everyone. Weight loss is more complex for some and we need to look at the body as a whole, what’s going on at cellular level? Have you been under stress? During times of stress your body release’s cortisol the fat storage hormone, how’s your digestion, lymphatic and oxygen levels? All have an impact on your weight. Through rectifying deficiencies in the body and rebalancing through hormonal, lymphatic and metabolic systems an individualised programme is essential to achieve your goals.



Transformation Workshops

There’s also a psychological component to weight loss that is responsible, and it is powerful,

“Most people start their weight-loss journey feeling like losing the weight is going to be the hardest part. When they lose weight, they feel successful. But eventually they go right back to their old habits.” Your mindset is key to successful weight management. To create lasting impact on unwanted weight then we have to step into the realm of psychology of weight loss.



Real Lasting Results

It has been 5 years since attending Chi of Life and everything is going really well for me now, I am still losing weight, still going to the gym and the diet is going great! I now weigh 117kg and I feel so much fitter and happier than I have in a long time, I have lost 3 dress sizes and nearly another dress size all my clothes I used to wear are now far too big for me so vie had to buy some new clothes now! but I am not buying too many just yet as I know I’ll lose more! I have had some stuff ups with food but then I just go back to how I normally eat and I’m still having the green smoothies it makes a huge difference without them I would never feel the same they give me so much energy for the day.
I just want to say again thank you so much for everything you have taught me and it’s been great.

It’s been 8 years since I did the weight loss retreat and I wanted to say thank you for helping me through the three weeks it was a memorable time for me. The health retreat has made me more aware of the stuff I put in my mouth and what eventually goes into my body. Since then, I have lost another 19 kilos and kept it off, but not just that, I feel amazing!  I am not tired as I used to be, I have a better outlook on life, I enjoy every moment I am blessed with and all because you have this wonderful program, that if embraced, gives you the fundamental tools to make anything happen.  Thank you again for the learnings of the retreat 🙂 xoxoxo
