What my clients say

When I started my journey with zest my goal was to live a healthier lifestyle and to learn how to look after my body by eating the right kind of food. I also lost weight in the process which wasn’t the main goal for me but I am still very happy with what I have achieved. The sessions were so interesting and informative I have learned so much from them. Zest has changed and improved myself and my lifestyle; I don’t think I could have done it without the support from Debbie and the group!

“I’d tried everything to lose weight over the years, including all the normal diets - nothing seemed to work. My GP told me I was sensitive to fibre and had chronic IBS. As the years rolled by I seemed to be going onto more and more tablets - my husband said it was like living in a pharmacy! Last July the arthritis in my knees took a turn for the worse after I twisted my knee at work. I was off work for weeks and watched with dismay as my weight just kept on increasing as I struggled to do any sort of exercise. I was referred to a private knee specialist who said I was too young for a knee replacement and needed to focus on losing weight to reduce the pressure on the joints. At this point I was getting really low and depressed and could see me ending up having to give up work - all before I’m 50! My husband spotted Debbie’s webpage and sent an email to see if she thought she could help. A few weeks later I was in Debbie’s consulting room pouring my heart out. I was very dubious at first especially after she told me I probably didn’t have IBS at all and to forget all the dietary advice I’d previously been given. I decided to give it a go (what did I have to lose?) and after the first week when I lost 9lb I realised this might actually work. 8 weeks later I’m down 25lb and have stopped taking more or less all the tablets I was previously on and on a reduced dose on the rest. Without Debbie I couldn’t have done this, she kept me going, so supportive and friendly. Her energy is infectious and rubs off on you. She was right about the IBS and sensitivity to fibre, I don’t have either! I’m now looking forward to heading off to Paris in a few weeks to celebrate my daughters 21st which previously would have been difficult to cope with given the level of walking involved.

After having my second child and struggling to lose my pregnancy weight I contacted Debbie and started on the Zest for Life plan. I was a little worried at the start about what food I would be able to eat on the plan but took it a day at a time to start with. 8 weeks later I have lost 16lb and 3.5 inches from my waist. Debbie was very supportive throughout the whole process, helping to keep me motivated, providing recipe ideas and explain things along the way. Really glad that I found Debbie and I would recommend to anyone wanting to lose some weight
