I am somebody who has taken health and fitness seriously since I joined the military at 16.
Since then, for the last 39 years, I have maintained a good level of fitness through exercise such as weights, swimming, cross-training, yoga and various sports. My fat ratios have stayed between 10 and 14%, my resting pulse rate is about 55 and my blood pressure is considered “optimal”.
As I am getting on a bit, I decided I should have a full health check and took a private consultation. Imagine my surprise when the results showed high levels of cholesterol and blood triglycerides (fat in the blood).
Having had my ego bruised, I swallowed my pride and made the mature decision (first time for everything…)
That decision was to ask for help. You see, my diet wasn’t that bad really and I exercised a lot - I wasn’t really quite sure what to do for the best.
So, I found Liz.
The first thing she did was not bruise my ego any more - while still managing to be very straight with me about what I needed to do. She also provided great encouragement and support. These were all major factors in my success.
I followed Liz’s program to the letter and increased my exercise and improved my food choices even further.
See the table - the facts speak for themselves.
…best investment I ever made…
Thank you Liz.
I just wanted to update you on our progress as I feel we’ve made a massive breakthrough in the past week.
For the past 3 days we’ve been primarily breastfeeding round the clock, without the need for a break! Whilst it’s not 100% pain-free, it’s totally manageable and I am no longer damaged.
My baby went through another big growth spurt and I feel his mouth has grown into a much better shape and his tongue is working much better. We’re both starting to get the hang of it too. I think we still need to work on technique a bit, but he seems to be swallowing lots and feeling full after.
I feel so liberated from the permanent pumping, bottle feeding, sterilising, repeat routine.
I can’t thank you enough for your help, support, expertise, encouragement, good thoughts, kindness and time. You helped me really turn a corner and to hold onto the faith that we could do this.
My baby is now 11 weeks old and we’ve really been through so much with this, but I really think we are now on the other side of the mountain. ❤❤
I just want to say a really big thank-you for all your help and guidance over these past couple of months. While I knew I needed to do something about my health, and possibly even knew what, I think I needed somebody to highlight the errors of my ways and to point me along the right, and guided, path to good health and well being.
What I had been eating up until you stepped in, was literally junk. I would happily eat my way through mounds of fried food, chips etc. crisps, biscuits, piles of cheese sandwiches I was all the time convincing myself that I would do something about my weight ‘tomorrow’.
Well, you were/are my tomorrow. What I’m now eating, and my wife for that matter, is a complete contrast. Gone are the bad processed foods and in come the good ‘proper’ foods. Our fridge would make our eldest boy so proud, and hopefully you too. We’re eating foods we would never have dreamed of eating before and I am feeling so much better. And yes, I’m even lowering the alcohol intake. With my heart and well being improving so much, hopefully, the fluid retention will drop if not go away.
I’m now cycling, and walking, and maybe soon, I’ll be cycling my old routes. (Liz McG - a few months later he was cycling over twenty miles up and down the Berkshire hills!) My heart is so much more stable and my breathing, though will never return to normal, the reality is that COPD doesn’t allow that, does feel so very very much better and will without a doubt delay the progress of 'Codgers Old Puffing Disease'.
So, once more, thank you so much. You’ve been the shining light I needed and long may that be the case.
Liz has provided me with invaluable and informative breastfeeding support. Most recently after experiencing mastitis, Liz gave advice beyond what I could physically research myself to help relieve the pain and symptoms I was experiencing. After implementing this, I was much more comfortable and my symptoms quickly went. Liz provides great insight, support and help in a professional, patient and understanding way. Liz's extensive knowledge and expertise is something for which I am very grateful and I would highly recommend her services.
This lady later added "You have potentially saved me from a hospital visit! I'm now back to normal. Thank you again for helping me, and so many other women." xx
