She lived the life she loved.Scroll down to see how my programs have helped others!
I decided to join Caitlin’s Quit Dieting for Good program to reclaim my body after 4 years of pregnancy and raising small children. I had slipped in to bad habits of eating chocolate just because it was there and I was lacking energy and feeling bloated and tired. Caitlin’s program helped me to achieve my goals. Through mindful eating I gave myself the freedom to have treats when I wanted to and really savour them, but also to allow myself to stop when I’d had enough. I now almost subconsciously do checks to see what my body needs and I feel in control of my body and my health again. The programme also helped me to take more time for self care – doing more yoga and sport, and also just taking time out with a cup of tea and a book. The program is about so much more than just food – it’s also about self care and learning to take control of your body and your life. I can highly recommend this to everyone!
Within these 6 months, my life has been turned. I have never been the healthiest person nor the unhealthiest one, but I have always struggle with my weight. And although you cannot say I am heavily overweight, it seem that I am always at the limit. I started the program with just one goal on my mind: get off the kilos I have gained after having my 2 kids – 15Kg. But I never imagined that this would be the least of my priorities at the end of this program…again thank you for that!
Your program help me to understand how my body works, how I can be healthy without feeling like an outsider, made the right choices and see food like my ally and not my enemy. It made me realize that to get to where I would like to be, I just needed to do what I would do if I was already there. Your encouragement, tips and councils where always at the right time when needed. I did it by myself, but you were the best support someone can have.
I have change not only my eating habits, from the long-life dieting to eat good and healthy because this is just for me; to drinking more water once I realize how much I need it and start exercising more often because it will increase my energy and boost my self-esteem. All these little changes were huge!!
My mind and body are today in peace with myself, I am not anymore thinking in terms of calories, diets, not eating and just feeling sorry for all I cannot do or how I am. Today I am glad to say I feel happy, happy with my life (my whole family saw a change and we all change because of that), happy with my approach to food and everything around it, happy to be able to keep up with my kids, husband and work, happy for the fact that something did change: ME!
I really appreciate all you did to help me, this is a great program that not only will help you loose weight (I did lost 3 Kg) but making you realize that life is not about how much you weight, but how happy you are…and this at the end will turn into losing weight without even think about it.
“With Caitlin’s coaching I have returned to having confidence in myself and in my choices. Food had become a source of guilt, stress and confusion – not knowing what to eat, when or why. I travel frequently for work and leisure and keeping good habits was a challenge. Caitlin showed me that small steps are meaningful, because they are easy to keep and become a habit. I now feel comfortable in my skin and confident in my choices home and away, and not too concerned when I decide to indulge. I know I can always return to my good habits because they are now a way of life for me, and where my motivation lies. “
With your 4 week meal plan + exercise, I lost 2 kilo as a result and am feeling better than ever since the baby was born. Thank YOU!
At the time I started the program, I was starting my new business, and I saw myself going down a slippery slope by either grabbing quick processed foods or not eating at all. Yet this was the time I needed energy the most! Caitlin’s program took the angst out of finding the time to shop and cook healthy meals for me and my family. Caitlin has an eye for detail and is the most supporting cheerleader: she cheered me on in the best way as I fell in love with food again. I would recommend her to everyone – big or small, stressed or bored – her program helps people re-learn the joy in food!
I love, love, love the recipes! They are all delicious, healthy, unique and simple to make. So many have become staples in our household now. Thank you, Caitlin, because I’ve tried so many other recipe plans before and always failed to keep them up.
I love that Caitlin’s recipes are delicious, nutritious, and easy to make. They fully satisfy the foodie in me, from the cooking side, with a couple of easy tricks to fancy up your meals, and of course from the pleasure of eating them. I had fallen into a trap of grabbing whatever was at hand, due to feeling I had no time and was stressed out from being a stay at home mom and also trying to start my own business. Caitlin’s meal plan and support throughout has been instrumental in getting me back on track and feeling healthy and energetic. I love to cook, and I strive to eat healthy, but I have always shied away from some even simple healthy ingredients to use in my cooking, and instead have often relied on pastas or supplemented a meal with a slice of bread or something similar. With Caitlin’s meal plan, I have learned how to use many new healthy ingredients and feel like I can now feed myself and my family really well.
Since being on the meal plan, my resting heart rate has decreased, and I’ve lost 3-5 pounds without trying too hard. It was also fun trying new recipes and new concepts in cooking – like coconut oil, ghee, and the grains like millet and buckwheat.
Somewhere along the way my relationship with food became strained. I loved and hated food simultaneously. I scrutinized every thing I ate, counted every calorie and tried every possible diet.Caitlin’s advice has helped me heal the relationship I had with food. As a health coach, Caitlin carefully listened to my needs and worked together with me to help me formulate and reach my health goals. Her meal plans were healthy, delicious and, best of all, easy to make. And her daily tips were always on point.
“I came to Caitlin a desperate, unhappy mess. Over the past months, she has helped me to find peace and confidence within myself and with food. She has shown me how ingrained restrictive, destructive food rules were in me, and given me a freeing, empowering alternative. I started this journey focused on weight, but now focus on living. And I finally ENJOY food again!”
“Working with Caitlin in her coaching program, she took the time to listen and respond in a way that made me feel like she was taking into account what I was saying. With her high level coaching, she encouraged me to reflect and explore new areas of my health and life. I now feel very confident in my food choices – whether eating something healthy or treating myself – because Caitlin helped me figure out what foods make me feel my best. It was fun and relaxing to talk to Caitlin and I recommend working with her! “
