KickStart to a Healthy LIfestyle
Through Estelle's KickStart to a Healthy Lifestyle services she guides, supports and motivates people to make changes, no matter how small, to improved long term good health and habits.
"Before I emigrated to Australia I owned two restaurants in Portugal. I was very stressed and ate my way through my frustrations and put on a lot of excess emotional baggage in the name of body fat. My oldest daughter was five years old at the time and was suffering from chronic migraine headaches. The local doctor just prescribed stronger and stronger pain killers, which concerned me. I wanted to help her naturally. A food combining diet cured her headaches. I did the same thing to encourage my daughter and I lost my weight and my depression with it. This so inspired me to learn more about therapeutic foods for good health. With my culinary skills as a chef I experimented with natural ingredients to make whole foods.
Since living in Australia I have become a personal trainer, shiatsu therapist and developed my own successful weight loss program. I also offer cooking classes in my home to encourage people following my weight loss program and for people to expand their ideas on foods that are healthy and more importantly very simple to prepare. I am known as the ‘lazy chef’ because I like no fuss cooking with very adaptable recipes.
I feel I am a niche in the fitness market as I offer personal training and weight loss sessions in a comfortable place. If you want to train with a friend or family member to reduce the cost, it is only $15 each.
My philosophy is to help people to shine and grow and to have fun in the process. More importantly I have been there.
I have been fat and frumpy and I have gone that next step and won the Masters Figure in body building".
