" When I decided to see a nutritionist, my intention was to become more food educated and to tailor that education to my personal nutritional needs. This is why I enlisted the help of Severine. I was clear of my intentions and she was, from day one, absolutely eager to help! She is a great coach!
Her daily motivational posts and 24/7 availability made her a confidant. I valued this greatly. Much of what I needed from Severine was a way to bring me out of my habitual eating nature. I was not an unhealthy eater. Being a 26 year old who can consider self healthier then most 26 year olds, I tasked her to challenge my eating habits. Boy, did she succeed.
Our bi-weekly meet ups, no matter if it were other facetime or our valued face to face meetings, were filled with information and advice from someone who has a glass half full perspective. She was also happy for me when I could not be, and this to me was incredibly important.
I would recommend Severine’s services to anyone who is planning to loosing weight, getting healthier, challenging habits and even her services as your food 'person'. Severine, I believe was the best choice for me because she tailors my needs into the program. She understands that not every person is the same, with greatness and flaws, which makes us all human." - Sabrina S.H.
Eating habits and self-control
" Weight was not an issue for me but I thought it would become if I didn’t act quickly and Severine has been great! I am very familiar with healthy eating and generally go for the good options. However, I went back to work after maternity leave and found all of a sudden that I had no time to exercise (used to run quite a bit), lack of sleep didn’t help, being just over 40 (metabolism slowing) and I felt I had no control about my eating anymore. I was eating non-stop (even though healthy options), was feeling exhausted as was not giving any break to my system but the most frustrating was that I felt totally out of control. Severine was recommended to me by a colleague and even though it was not an easy road her great support, her suggestions, her plans, the fact she is always there 24/7 ready to give some courage and some good ideas helped me a lot. Now I have just finished the program and finally I am back to having 3 to 4 meals a day, I have more energy, I am much less lethargic but above all I am in control again." - Sandra S.V.
Stamina and weight loss
" Severine is a very open and honest person who listens to your story and what it is you are looking for. She was able to perfectly analyse what exactly I could benefit from keeping my personal goals in mind. I feel like this experience was more than just advice on what to eat but also opened up a new 'world' of food to me. I absolutely loved the experienced and would recommend her to anyone." - Susanne K.
" General experience is amazing. I have learnt a lot about balancing my meals, reintroducing carbs/grains into my diet and enjoying eating whole foods. I no longer have big cravings. I sleep better. I have less sugar. Loss on the scales is encouraging." - Victoria H.
Weight loss and wellbeing
" I found Severine's programme very helpful. The material and feedback provided really has helped me to recognise my eating habits and in the process help me understand how good nutrition is linked to every part of my wellbeing." - Jaswinder M.
Weight loss after a baby
" I cannot recommend Severine enough. I put on 3 stones since getting pregnant and having my daughter and didn't manage to shed the pounds on my own. As soon as I enrolled Severine's help, the weight started going down quickly and it was so much more easier than I thought it would be. After 3 months working with Severine, I have lost over a stone and I am now confident I have all the necessary tools/knowledge to be successful in my weight loss. For me, it was not only about losing the weight but also about learning to eat healthy and make a real lifestyle change and Severine really helped! The way she works is fantastic as she offers real support throughout the program" - Christel T.
" I worked with Severine for a period of six months. In that time, I was able to lose around 8kg by making simple changes to my diet and daily habits. I found Severine to be both practical and creative in terms of helping me to make changes and keeping to those changes when inevitably, I lost some momentum. She is a good listener and very understanding which makes working with her a pleasure. I would recommend her to others" - ?Matthew B.
Food intolerances and weight loss
" I struggled with my weight for years as I battled with the symptoms of P.C.OS, and had gone through a miscarriage earlier in the year. I was also starting to have issues and could just not seem to correct it. I felt quite hopeless with the prospect of getting healthy and back into shape before trying for another baby, and did not want to use any of the conventional recommendations suggested by my doctor, so I decided to meet Severine and opt for a more natural approach.
Meeting Severine was amazing and she was able to clearly direct me in the simple changes I needed to make to my diet and lifestyle. She was very understanding and motivating, and the consultation was exactly what I had hoped it would be. I was very surprised at how quickly the weight started to drop off and my issues improved. At my 6 week follow up I already felt like a different person and in such a better place. Severine was able to revise my plan further and things are still going strong and improving each day. I'm now looking forward to trying for another baby and am hopeful we'll be successful his time around! Thank you Severine!" - Philippa A.
" I ask Severine for help because I wanted to lose 10 kg, and despite going to the gym 5 times a week for 3 months, I still hadn’t lost any weight. She nicely explained to me that weight loss is 80% what you eat and 20% exercise, so even if I was doing everything right at the gym, if my food diary didn’t improve I would still be at the same point in a year’s time.
So I started making simple changes, and the weight started to come off. After a while I started going to the gym only 3 times a week, and the weight was still coming off as long as I sticked to a few simple rules. I really enjoyed her programme because I was able to eat tasty food and have the occasional night out. She totally understood me and got me where I wanted. Totally recommend her!" - Marc M.
Food cravings, weight loss and mood swings
" I followed a 4-week programme with Severine. My goals were to avoid food cravings, lose some weight and also improve my overall mood. Severine made it clear that these 3 goals were all linked together. She explained the cause of my failure to reach these goals and what I could do to reach by improving a few things in my diet and lifestyle. After the 1st week, I was already starting to see some improvements in my body. My cravings were gone and I didn't find it too difficult to give up some of my favorite guilty snacks. Severine was very motivating and enthusiastic throughout the programme. She also provided some ideas and recipes that helped me eating a wider range of foods. She also provided good explanations on body functioning and why the programme is effective. I would definitely recommend Severine to anyone who wants to improve their lifestyle, no matter how big or difficult the challenge seems." - Esther B.
Weight loss and improving immunity
" Severine is a highly professional nutritionist with extensive and up-to-date knowledge. She is highly personable and makes sessions not only interesting and relevant, but also fun and energising. I highly recommend her services to people who want to get serious with their health and nutrition." - David V.
?Lack of energy and weight loss
" My time spent with Severine was totally worthwhile - I wish I had done it sooner. She took the time to understand my situation and motivations and was given easy work arounds that left me feeling great. And then just as bad habits crept back in a coaching call with Severine would put me right back on track. We all sort of know what to do but working with Severine made this fit into my busy work life and kept me motivated week on week." - Annemieke van der V.
Weight loss after a baby
" Severine is a competent nutritionist, who gave me a lot of great advice for loosing the last pounds of baby weight after having my little son. She provided me with a lot of interesting information about nutrition and checked very thoroughly my health history before starting the programme. She also provided me with tasty recipes that are easy to prepare. I started by making small changes to my diet step by step following Severine's advice and feel much better and more energised. A huge thank you to Severine - highly recommendable!" - Annika C.
