Patricia from Cork

“I thought I was a relatively healthy eater, until Helen suggested I keep a food diary.  It turned out that all the low- fat foods I thought were good for me were full of sugar which was much worse for me than fat.

Helen introduced me to eating a rainbow on my plate, as well as explaining the science behind how unprocessed foods can boost metabolism and provide antioxidants.  So now I have changed my habits, and am buying a lot more unprocessed, and hence less sugary food.  The first month was hard, but after that it became a habit – a good habit!  As a result of less processed foods, my metabolism has increased, and as a bonus I’ve managed to shed a few pounds just in time for a family wedding.  Thank you Helen for your encouragement and support, especially during that first month.”
