I recently took a close look at an old cookbook, copyright 1973. Between the covers of this now unbounded tome are over 700,…
I was all ears as CBC Radio’s call-in show discussed men’s mental health last Sunday. I just can’t get enough learning and discussion…
On a recent night, according to forecasters, there would be a good chance of seeing the northern lights – weather permitting. So, instead…
“Thank you Claudette! I went to my physician yesterday for my 3 month check up and my diabetes is under control now. The lab tests are all within normal limits. Since the program with you, I’ve lost 15 lbs just by eating the right things, smaller portions, more often. I don’t miss my parking spot. Thanks again for all your work with us. I have been recommending this program to others.” – Anonymous
“One evening, when I was nearly home, I suddenly realized that I had just passed all of my usual tempting restaurants without a single thought of stopping at any of them. And another surprise was that I actually lost weight while on my holidays instead of the usual gain. My time with Claudette was infinitely more productive and ultimately more valuable than any formal “therapy” session and the feedback she provided was constructive and instrumental to where I am at today.” – Audrey
"My coach was the key to my progress. She was supportive, caring, extremely knowledgeable about a wide variety of health-related topics and patient without being passive. I always felt she was listening to every word I was saying. She showed amazing skill at being able to ask the right question to stop me in my mental tracks and lead me to rethink my problem and possible solutions. Never did she take control of my decision-making--I was the one who had to come up with the answers and suggest ways in which I could improve my life." – Anonymous
"I would like to have another session with you in a few months. I would welcome more of those wonderfully mind-numbing, thought-provoking, life-changing questions of yours. You truly have helped me change my life for the better." – Tam
"I can't thank you enough for what a great instructor you are. Each class I admired your ability to hone in on the important questions, that got us to look at the real issues we needed to face . . . and you did it in such a way that we never felt threatened by the reality of the issue. I have greatly enjoyed implementing the lessons in to my life, and am looking forward to continuing to use my new tools." – Joanne
“I can’t tell you how much I have appreciated this process (even though I’m still only half way thru). I have never been kind to myself until I started this wellness program and I’ve never appreciated my body or my abilities. I can honestly say that I do both now daily. I really like where I am at right now and this is the important part for me. I have changed my mindset and my physical routine so much and I’m still 40 lbs heavy BUT I like who I am.” – Brandee
“I personally found Claudette’s program very beneficial. Even after almost a year after the program, I find myself still using the techniques to maintain my weight loss. I believe the weight loss coaching is an essential part of any weight loss journey. It is one thing to lose the weight but to maintain the weight loss one must address the mental and emotional sides of poor eating habits.” – Lynn Hood
"Over the 12 weeks a journey of self-discovery has changed my approach to food and wellness through developing greater self love, confidence, goal setting and managing stress. I have a greater understanding of how my thought processes impact the choices I make and how I feel about myself. Understanding this connection has enabled me to catch myself when I am being critical and stop the negative thinking. Instead I have tools I can turn to and a more supportive environment for success. I have been steadily losing weight at a pace that has been right for me. This has been very worthwhile. I definitely recommend this approach to other people." – Anonymous
"I've lost 28 lbs, but more importantly, I'm focused on my health and wellness again. I'm working on exercising, eating right, meditating and other positive self-nurturing activities on a daily basis." – Anonymous
"This program has helped me to get back on track regarding my eating habits. It is so easy to quit and give up but my coach made me accountable to my actions and provided me with positive reinforcement. I would recommend this opportunity to anyone seeking help in changing their eating behaviour." – Anonymous
"Once again, it was great taking your "Tasting" class, especially with my husband. He was very impressed and certainly had more than a few light bulb moments. His new insights seem to have put the whole issue of one’s relationship with food into more of partnership mode which is great for both of us. What I know for sure, is that the help and awareness I receive from you has been invaluable and I look forward to continuing to work with you. You are the best!" – Anonymous
