Recovering from an eating disorder is never easy. Through the guidance and support of the ‘Devil on Your Plate’ program I have learned to love my body, from the inside out. The gentle, nurturing approach, constant support and words of wisdom leave me feeling strong, powerful, encouraged and powerful. Michal’s message of healing your digestion to begin healing your life was just what I needed to continue moving forward. When my doctors and therapists no longer had the answers, Michal taught me how to find my own balance and my own way. Thank you for showing me how I too can be awesome!
I come from a body building background, where nutrition is the main focus. I thought I knew how to feed my body but honestly reflecting on my eating habits I realized my meal plans didn’t work for my body. Not only did I struggle to maintain this diet plan, I was spending a lot of time and money fulfilling these eating habits. I was mainly interested in nutrition advice. I believe in holistic healing but I have never had the guidance in order to heal my ailments. My main concern was dealing with my many allergies and food intolerances. In this journey I found the foods and eating habits that allow my body to function to the best of its ability, while managing my stomach problems.A few of the outcomes from going through Michal’s program included learning how to calm my stomach issues, finding foods that suited my goals and physical activity and learning to love big meals, including calories. I am leaner, stronger and happier than I have ever been before but still enjoy food, and a glass of wine.Everyone is different from their goals to their bodies; from their hearts to their souls. Michal honours this diversity on every individual’s path of success.
I met Michal at a time in my life when I had just been prescribed medication for common age related issues, something I had always sworn I wouldn’t take. She began by informing me that diet may well be the answer and that I would once again enjoy my food.I am now off my medication, my informed choice. I have dropped the excess weight I had been carrying around for years and I now love my food. It has been a very long time since I’ve felt this good!!Michal answered all my questions and suggested well known resources when I needed to do the research for myself. The information was up to date and opened my eyes to what I had long suspected. Pharmaceuticals are not always the answer.Michal listened to me and supported me when I needed it the most. I felt that she was targeting my issues only and never let me waver from my own personal health goals. I count her as a good friend and someone who is always available to answer any questions that might come along. Thank you, Michal. You were just what I was looking for!
My approach to nutrition in the past was simply blindly troubleshooting approaches that had worked for others with no regard towards my specific needs; this lead to a bleak relationship with food, and a digestive system in turmoil. Working with Michal one-on-one and through her program was intense but approachable, especially with the keen focus on making sure that you are equipped mentally, physically, and emotionally. It takes a very special approach to get one excited about eliminating all the “good stuff” from your diet, but the support I received from Michal not only got me through the ‘getting the devils off my plate’ period, it made me thrive, and the changes I made, I intend to carry forward. I feel in tune with my body, light, and strong.
Michal has helped me in more ways than I can describe. She has supported me in making some of the biggest lifestyle changes possible. She is constantly available via texts and in person whenever needed. I know I can always count on her regardless of what I need. I would recommend seeing Michal for any lifestyle changes that you are thinking of making. She is so knowledgeable and seems to always have a solution to every problem. She is kind, compassionate and truly wanting to make a difference in her client’s lives. I can’t believe how much my life has changed since I started working with Michal. She has helped me develop a healthy relationship with food, make better eating choices and have a natural awareness of my body.
As an avid motorcycle racer, I pursued the services of ATH in order to lose weight as I was awarded the wildcard spot in the World Supersport Championship. The word ‘diet’ had always been my four letter word, and competing had left me with a poor relationship with food. I was either on a diet, or not, both in an extreme way.Initially, Michal diverted my attention to the eliminating the ‘devil on my plate’ eating whole foods, cleaning out my system and resetting my body. The weight fell off, so much so that I needed to buy a new race suit. This original goal ended up being the least important achievement of her program.Whilst following a whole foods protocol, my energy levels soared, my body composition shifted drastically (my body fat went down significantly), my strength increased, my sleep improved, I stopped snoring, my allergies disappeared and any digestive discomfort that I had previously experienced, no longer existed. Previous injuries had left me with severe wrist, knee and hip pain. My wrists were so inflamed that I was unable to sleep without wrist braces and was scheduled for surgery, which would have prevented me from racing. The best results from my program are that I am no longer bothered by pain; no longer do I wear wrist guards, and best of all, do not need to undergo any surgical procedure. I have come to realize the importance of how we fuel our bodies and the effects it has on our physical and mental being. This is especially apparent when I choose to consume food-like products and have to deal with the brain-fog and inflammation that follows. Hangovers are nothing in comparison. My relationship with food has improved too. I no longer feel the need to over-indulge or deprive myself. I enjoy my food, can eat what I love and love how I look and feel.Through the program my setbacks and mental blocks were dealt with in a manner that inspired me to continue and improve. I now enjoy checking in to keep me on track, and continue learning how important it is to hear what your body is telling you.
