Hey, thank you for visiting my website! I started Live Lean Health out of passion for health and wellbeing, but mostly passion for a growing journey that i wish upon everyone to experience!
Health means different things to different people, i just facilitate transformation, which comes with all the benefits of a lifestyle that feels authentic to you!
Sixteen years ago, I started my own journey into the world of nutrition. At 17 I suffered from anorexia and when I finally started eating again I had a terrible relationship with food. I spent 18 years going between starvation and overeating.
It really messed up my system and it meant I struggled with my weight all through my 20’s. No matter how much i learned about nutrition, nothing was changing for me!
Well.. the truth is: food was not the issue. The issue was self-love and self esteem,something I just didn’t have but really needed.
I exercised a lot and tried to bring science into my bad relationship with food and my body. But I was addicted, in fact obsessed, with finding the “silver bullet” for weight loss. I tried fat burning, pills to cut my appetite and every diet under the sun!
Nothing worked because the more I restricted my food intake, the more the urge to binge came back and without realising, I had polished a whole box if biscuits and ice-cream!
What a disaster!
Then when i turned 30, I put a stop to my obsessive behavior. i realised i was not getting any younger and my behaviour was causing me health issues and I was just not ready to live a life of pain because of self-inflicted preventable diseases. Moreover, I was tired of looking in the mirror and not liking what in saw and always comparing myself to others!
That was exhausting!
I decided to change. I started paying my body attention, complimenting my nice features and accepting the ones I thought were flawed. And slowly by changing my attitude towards my body and my life, I managed to cut my sugar addiction (it was hard) and I began experimenting with portion control. At times i still need to fight those demons, as they come back the moment i eat one too many OmBars, but i know how to deal with it better.
I started practicing yoga more regularly and slowly I found out what foods worked for me. As part of my experimentation plan, after a couple of years, I became a vegan and everything changed! The compassion of veganism, towards my body and other beings suited me perfectly, and where i had been feeling stuck for the longest time, i realised, i had started to grow and open my mind!
The most notable change was the fact that I was finally being kind to myself. I was being loving towards myself and not trying to be someone else. That acceptance, the small changes and a positive mindset, made miracles happen.
I wanted to share my journey with the world, and so Live Lean Health was born! A unique, comprehensive coaching/support system to help you find out what works for you! Make that change you have been waiting for and be the person YOU want to be!

I received my training as a Health Coach from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition‘s cutting-edge Health Coach Training Program as well as short programs offered at UCSF, Stanford University, Vanderbilt school of Nursing.
During my training, I studied over 100 dietary theories, practical lifestyle management techniques, and innovative coaching methods with some of the world’s top health and wellness experts.
My teachers included Dr. Andrew Weil, Director of the Arizona Center for Integrative Medicine; Dr. Deepak Chopra, leader in the field of mind-body medicine; Dr. David Katz, Director of Yale University’s Prevention Research Center; Dr. Walter Willett, Chair of Nutrition at Harvard University; Geneen Roth, bestselling author and expert on emotional eating; and many other leading researchers and nutrition authorities. My education has equipped me with extensive knowledge in holistic nutrition, health coaching, and preventive health.
Drawing on these skills and my knowledge of different dietary theories, I work with clients to help them make lifestyle changes that produce real and lasting results. I have dedicated the past decade to finding new ways to help people discover the healthiest version of themselves.
In today’s world we have become more and more out of touch with “me time” We lead more stressful lives and we need more guidance. I am continuously studying to better my knowledge so I can help people understand what a real balance (in the forms of nutrition, exercise and lifestyle as a whole) is all about.
The Live Lean Program
How does Live Lean do this?
As humans we are the byproduct of what we eat and how we live. Our bodies and minds reflect what we put in, around and on ourselves. Often, we lose sight of how important it is to pay attention to those things and we can , with time, impact our health and happiness.
But we can heal our bodies with kind food from nature, our thinking, our movements and how we react to life!
I will work with each individual to create and provide a support system through our program. No program is the same, because you are unique and Live Lean will honour your uniqueness. By embracing a completely healthy lifestyle you will feel amazing and grateful for your health and your life!
