Comprehensive Women's Weight Loss Package

  • 1x 60 minute initial nutrition consultation with Alex:

    • Alex conducts a comprehensive nutrition assessment considering body composition and weight history, review of blood test results, medical and family history, medications, supplements, lifestyle and physical activity. She will undertake a detailed gut health assessment and take a deep dive into other areas of your health. Additional factors such as sleep, stress and mental wellbeing are considered as well as an in-depth dietary assessment. She will then formulate a tailor-made nutrition treatment plan unique to you and backed by science to yield results.
       

  • 1x 30 minute follow up consultation with Alex
     

  • 1x 30-50 minute nutrition seminar each week for 6 weeks - facilitated by Alex and pre-recorded so that you can watch in your own time, in the comfort of your home.
     

  • These seminars will teach you: 

    • How to lose weight when you feel that you are already doing all the right things

    • Which health conditions and nutrient deficiencies can inhibit weight loss

    • How to measure progress- it's not just about weight and scales!

    • How much more there is to weight loss than calories in vs. calories out- the ins and outs of metabolism, digestion of food and the impact it has on our hunger and appetite regulation.

    • How to meal plan and prep for each week

    • How to navigate eating out, socialising, or events that are structured around food. 

    • Why we aren't doing what we know we should be doing - and it's not because we don't have enough willpower! 

    • Why we crave sugar and how to adjust the diet to prevent sugar cravings

    • How to improve sleep and boost energy 

    • Ways to show your body self-care without food

    • How your diet can impact on health conditions (cancer risk, heart disease, and diabetes)

    • How to eat forever without guilt- mindful and intuitive eating and how to trust your body

    • How you can stop dieting before events, depriving yourself of the foods that you love, and feeling like you are constantly "falling off the wagon" or "needing to get back on track"
       

  • Weekly email reflections and support with Alex for 6 weeks. 
     

  • 6- week meal planner complete with recipes, and shopping lists created by Alex to give you family friendly, lower-calorie evening meals
     

  • Resources and tools to use to plan your meals, get organised with your meal preparation, and look after your body through food and nutrients.

F.A.Q's

I am busy. How much time does this take each week?

 

This package was designed with busy women in mind. Which is why it should take you no longer than 60-90 mins / week for the 6 weeks of seminars. This includes time to watch your weekly session, consult with Alex each week, and complete your weekly goals and reflections. The seminars are optional- but highly beneficial and women who have watched them have gained alot from them.

Is this interactive or all online?

 

Very interactive and completely personalized! Your consultations with Alex and weekly check ins provide opportunity for you to interact and discuss your progress, success, and challenges with a real person- not a robot! Your weekly webinars and emails are written and recorded by Alex and allow you to work at your own pace, from the comfort of your home. It's basically just working with Alex 1:1- but with loads of beneficial extras!

Do I get a meal plan?


When you work with Alex, she will determine whether or not you need a personalised meal plan and cater accordingly. Nutrition interventions do not always look like meal plans! In addition to this, you will receive weekly meal plans throughout the program so that you don't have to think about what to have for dinner at all! 


How much does it cost? 


The package is valued at over $600 but is offered for only $349 total. No extra hidden costs anywhere. 

 

Do I complete any work with a group?


There is no group work in this package. The weekly seminars begin at a dedicated date each month but your 1:1's and weekly sessions with Alex are completely personalized, confidential, and specific only to you. You can work at your own pace, and everything that you work on with Alex in your weekly sessions is individual.

When does it start/ end? 

You can begin at any time! In order for Alex to provide her full focus and attention to each client, the number of people she is able to offer this weight loss package to is limited. Therefore, seminars are sent out at a specific time each month- which is given when booking. Your 1:1 sessions can happen at anytime.

- Bre

"All advice given was personalised for me. It didn’t feel at all like a generic template. Alex is kind she listens and provides what will help you"

- Lesley

"Alex gave me more feedback and information about my blood tests than anybody else ever has. I loved that she said I can eat peanut butter on toast every day- usually I cut this out when I am trying to lose weight but so far I have already lost 4kgs.

Initial Nutrition Consultation

This service provides you with 1x 60-75 minute session with Alex either in her office based in Palmerston North, or virtually from anywhere across NZ. 

$139 per session, (60 minutes).

Ongoing monthly support

I have received amazing feedback from clients about the positive changes that they have made throughout their 6- week program, but as we know- life is filled with events and situations that pose as challenges to making diet and lifestyle change, and it's important that you have the support systems that you need to overcome these things. 

 

I am excited to now offer an opportunity for us to carry on working together for 3 more months after the women's wellness program. 

 

What does the support program involve?

  • 3x 1:1 sessions (1x session each month)

  • Weekly goal setting and reflections with me

    • Optional- but helpful for the weeks when you are struggling or establish new barriers or challenges that hadn't arisen in the past. 

  • Fortnightly videos for 12 weeks (6 in total) covering: 

    • How to “come off” a diet

    • Self monitoring strategies for long-term results

    • Exercise

    • Myth busting session and where to source legit information in future

    • Weight loss plateaus and how to break through these

    • How to alter your diet yourself and still get results
       

My women's weight loss and wellness package is not designed to be a short-term fix! If you want ongoing support to help you in maintaining or further achieving your goals - I can help. ​

 You will hear more about this when you complete my women's wellness & weight loss package- or feel free to email me for more info. 

"I have previously just looked for recipes but the seminars helped me decide different food groups to put together for those times when a recipe wasn't necessary and I could improvise or make better food choices for breakfast/snacks/lunch etc. ... The food ideas taste SO good!"

- Rachel

"How I feel about myself
has always been dictated by the scales and what
others thought of me. This programme already has
given me an outlet – through goals and reflections -
that I’ve never had before. I’m starting to find ways
of combating that awful learnt behaviour and being
kinder to myself is the first step."

- Jess

"I am starting to lose weight even though I feel I am eating more. I am careful about the carbs and are making sure I eat protein every time I eat anything. I have also increased my fat intake. It is just so weird!"

- Marie
