What Some of My Clients Have Said
"My son has multiple food allergies, his diet was restricted and repetitive. Melody gave us fantastic practical nutritional advice and supplement guidance in order to make sure that his diet was varied and that he was getting all the vitamins and minerals a growing boy needs. I thoroughly recommend her service!" (JE, Putney).
“As you know, I suffer from (a hormonal condition) and decided to come and see you because of the severe pain and vomiting I had during my period and feeling sick the rest of the time. Since seeing you, my energy levels have improved and although I still get pain during my period it has gone down from two days to one and I no longer feel sick or vomit. If I hadn’t changed my diet, as you suggested, I don't think I would have been able to go back to work as I was feeling sick all the time.” (JB, London).
"I came to see you earlier this year as I had put on some weight since moving to London. Your advice was invaluable to me.and has laid some important groundwork for my eating habits. I have decided that I am going to utilise your insights...and leverage my personal trainer going forward for monitoring and weighing etc." (DK, Putney).
"When I (Monica Costa, Putney) came to see Melody, Diego was waking up 4-5 times a night and had terrible wind. After explaining to me what foods help promote sleep and what might be contributing to Diego's wind, Melody gave me some sensible dietary advice, which was surprisingly easy to incorporate which made it all the easier! When we met up again about a month later, Diego's wind had completely gone and he was only waking up 1-2 times a night.
I engaged Melody at a critical stage of my life where I had to manage a weight problem due to poor diet and disorganised lifestyle. I needed to lose 12 kilos to reach my ideal weight … It was clear that I had to reorganise my eating habits.
Melody developed a plan to guide me towards a simpler and more balanced choice. I have rediscovered the pleasure of palate through better eating. At every meeting, Melody provided an outline including : my goals, food and dietary tips, and encouragement…After eight months I achieved my goal to lose weight and I continue, despite moving overseas [back to Paris], to apply her advice. I didn’t have to change my family meal habits… for example: the whole family still enjoys bread and pasta, but whole wheat instead of white.
Now I listen to my hunger and I make the right choice! … A more dynamic present, get fit, regularly practice a sport activity gives me the energy that I needed to continue quietly and confidently my life.
Her support throughout the process was precious and I value her advice.” [CL, Putney]
