If you want to be successful in life, you need to also be successful in your nutritional choices. If you choose foods which bring down your energy or flare up your emotions or body, you will not be operating from a place of power – but a place of disempowerment. Your eating patterns are very much a reflection on your inner world.

The good news: My book Change4Good: The Ten Essentials for Food, Fitness and The Good Life will provide you with options and strategies, putting you in control of your nutritional choices – so that food no longer controls you or your life. My book is a realistic step-by-step guide, which offers an understandable, holistic approach to nutrition and overall wellness. My 10 core principles are simple strategies, which can help anyone avoid common pitfalls and overcome personal barriers. I share the top research-based and results-proven essential nutritional habits you need to live as your highest potential self.

I am a living example that the information and inspiration in my book works. I’ve endured my share of struggles around food and nutrition. For nearly two decades I battled with an eating disorder – which included extreme fad dieting, over-exercising plus over-doing diet pills and laxatives.

Thankfully instead of giving up I became determined to rise up –wiser, stronger, healthier. I started reading every book I could lay my hands on – about eating disorders, perfectionism, personal growth, spirituality, health, nutrition and fitness.

I have an incredibly comprehensive 15-year academic background in education, nutrition, fitness, psychology and spirituality – so I really attack things at all levels.

I became determined to live a life tapped into my truest self – fulfilling my purpose – and making a contribution to the world.

This book shares much of the information and inspiration, which changed my life.

Inside you’ll find principles and tools to keep your eating on track – no matter how busy your life might be – or whether you’re an athlete, a professional, entrepreneur or parent. The tools I provide help you identify quickly and easily where you can make nutritional changes to optimize your performance and success. I not only explore what you’re eating – but why and how you’re eating. I drill down deep below the surface of what’s on your plate – to consider what’s on your mind. I start by helping you to become highly mindful of your eating triggers by taking a personal inventory of where you are in your life. Next, I give you relatable research, do-able tools and inspiring motivation to empower you to truly change.

I created this book to be your portable, go-to guide – to manage not just your weight, but your overall wellness and emotional states. The strategies I share are a road map for those who are ready to live a healthy, balanced life – as well as a meaningful, fulfilling life.

I loved the process of writing this book. I wrote it as if I was writing to a friend – with a loving, understanding voice – because I truly do understand how challenging eating in a self-loving, self-energizing can be!

I write about the topics of nutrition, wellness, spirituality and high performance often – because they are near and dear to my heart. You can also find my writing in iRun Magazine, More Magazine, Parent’s Canada, Today’s Bride, and Zoomer Magazine.
