"I had the privilege of completing two courses in 2017 that Diane Stride took on “What are you hungering for”.  This is now called Redefine your relationship with Food. Having a background of  yo yo  dieting and binge eating I struggled to see the logic in why I could not maintain a normal weight for a period of time without sabotaging my best efforts to lose weight to only put it all back on! The cycle went on for years…!!

Being part of Diane’s course and really taking an honest look at myself and with Diane’s help  and  the  help of the material on the course and also the support of the group I was able to see patterns when my eating got worse and at times out of control!

Working through the course and making a commitment to come every week I have been able to maintain an 8-9 kg weight loss but most of all not be driven by food or use it as an emotional fix.  I see food differently today and have managed to put food in its rightful place of nourishing my body. I would recommend anyone that would like to be free and not in the bondage of food as I was once.

THIS COURSE HELPED ME TOWARDS ACCEPTANCE, RATHER THAN REJECTION

My life has been a rollercoaster.  Married three times, lived in Australia for many years.  Three grown up children, one with drug problems.  Two marriages were violent and abusive. This course has made me feel content and liking myself better.

“I hadn’t realised when I started seeing Diane that I was stuck in a binge-diet cycle of emotional eating. I thought I just needed to see her for a diet to help with my auto-immune issues. 

 Diane is guiding me on a journey of well supported personal change. I have seen incredible changes in my mental and physical health. Instead of eating my anxiety and stress, I am taking care of me and not using food as a crutch. I have learnt to love me: I now think and see myself in a positive, loving way. Diane has also helped me to experiment with different tools to cope with my stress. My key tools are simple breathing mediations, yoga at least twice a week, reading books and prioritising me even when it seems too difficult. 

Diane has been positive and constructive throughout, challenging me at times . She has also conducted our sessions over Skype with a challenging time zone difference. Thank you, Diane.”

Mother of a teenage daughter

As the mother of a teenage daughter with a number food intolerances, I have found Diane’s knowledge and expertise invaluable. She identified the foods that were causing my daughter to feel so unwell and provided her with detailed information, so that she can manage a balanced, healthy diet independently.

As the mother of a teenage daughter with a number food intolerances, I have found Diane’s knowledge and expertise invaluable. She identified the foods that were causing my daughter to feel so unwell and  provided her with detailed information, so that she can  manage a balanced, healthy diet independently.  Her support has been ongoing, regularly providing us with product information.

Diane’s clear guidelines and reassuring manner  has helped us feel  a lot more confident about managing a restricted diet positively. I am so glad that we found Diane and would highly recommend her services.

My Journey with Diane started with uncertainty and apprehension as  i  didn’t know what she could offer me that  i  hadn’t already tried. What  i  also did not understand was that  i  was about to start a  life changing  journey that would lead me to discover the reasons behind my emotional eating. Throughout my time with  Diane  I discovered that there is a way to  recognise  these reasons and change the processes that contribute to emotional eating, binging. Diane uses a range of teaching methods that include research,  real life  stories, videos and a touch of science to educate and uplift you. I highly recommend Diane and to anyone who has struggled to understand their relationship with food and are unable to make the necessary changes to be healthy,  diet free  and to love their body.

Joint pain gone after following auto-immune diet!

This is just a short testimonial to say how pleased I am with the results that I have achieved with Diane. After suffering with significant joint pains for good few years, I finally got to the end of my patience and thought instead of seeking medication, I would see if there was a natural way to manage this.

Joint pain gone after following auto-immune diet!

This is just a short testimonial to say how pleased I am with the results that I have achieved with Diane. After suffering with significant joint pains for good few years, I finally got to the end of my patience and thought instead of seeking medication, I would see if there was a natural way to manage this. Being very active in the fitness industry, I have read a lot about various diets and ways in which to manage both weight and health, but did not want to go an another crack pot diet.

After following her advice, I am now a good few kilos lighter and joints are doing fine- I have not used anti-inflammatory for 4 months now- and know if I eat wrong, the pain will come back… and does, so why would I want to sabotage my good health.

Thanks Diane

This course has completely changed the way I view my relationship with food. It has helped me to take a deeper look at how and why I eat. In a safe and non-judgemental environment I have been able to share my experiences with others who are also struggling with food. Dieting and weight loss used to involve a lot of guilt and negativity but not any more. I now have the tools to change my deeply ingrained habitual eating patterns from a place of love and nurturing. I'm the only one that can do it. And I will. Because I'm worth it! You are too!

I enjoyed the course to the extent that I have advertised it in my hair salon.  I feel empowered and like a flower that is opening up and ready to bloom.  This is a journey and a new path to travel.  For me, it is the beginning of living my life differently.  Being mindful and with the skills and tools that I have been able to receive from this course, I can use them every day.  I want to live life to the full and be all that God wants me to be.
