I’m just going to come right out and say it – People still get SUPER weird about talking about eating disorders! Men especially do NOT seem to know how to handle it sensitively (yes, I’m generalising here, but it’s mostly what I’ve found when I’ve talked about...

I just wanted to pop in and share this insight with you today as it’s something that I keep seeing people get confused about time and time again. I am astounded by anyone who tells you to love and accept your body as she is, and then proceeds to tell...

Mel is fantastic and such a great mentor. Thank you for everything, Mel. I’m actually sad that our 6 weeks has come to an end. I really can’t recommend Mel enough!!
I’d really recommend Mel. She really got me out of a bad time of not looking after my health and is a beautiful approachable person inside and out.

I can honestly say since starting my journey with Mel nearly 2 months ago now it has not only changed my mindset about food, but it has completely changed the way I feel about food! This is a new way of life for me not just a 6 week fix! So thank you Mel for your guidance, patience and advice! You have changed my life for the better!
I’m sleeping better, and I feel light and ready for the day ahead! Overall my health has improved drastically. I have slimmed down despite the fact that I have not managed to get to the gym much in my busy start back, and people have been commenting on how great I look.
For as long as I can remember I have yo-yoed with diets and competed with my 3 younger sisters to be the thinnest / fittest / blah blah blah. I remember seeing The Green Goddess Life on Facebook, and a competition Mel posted around the beginning of the year, and sending her my help email. WOW, WOW, WOW!!! Best email I have ever sent.
She has changed my whole mentality and it is slowly changing my life. I’m making my changes slowly but consciously….my scales have gone, and my rules are going …
Procrastinating on taking care of my body from the inside out was my life for two years. Ever since becoming a mommy, starting an online coaching and speaking business, and selling our home to move cities, my eating, fitness and self care habits have been in need of a makeover.
Yet I was also so busy working in my business that investing time in my eating, cooking and caring for physical health felt like stealing time from my business which I naively thought needed to be my priority.
I hope you really do realise the impact and effect you have had Mel…I still find it amazing how working with you has changed how I feel and look at my life – I can’t thank you enough. You have enabled me to change the way I look at my eating habits, seeing this is SO not a diet but a healthier way of life where I now nurture my body. It’s also been a safe place where us girls have been able to let go together, encourage each other and see how we each has grown and changed to become healthier, …
I’m genuinely a happier person after switching to this way of eating. Calling Mel was one of the best things I’ve ever done for myself– I recommend you call her, too!
Mel has an incredible, almost magical ability to bring you to a place of grace. Working with her has opened my eyes to a whole new way of talking to myself, of being with my food choices, and of owning my journey. She found forgiveness where all I saw was defeat. She found strength where all I saw was failure. She always had a way forward, no matter how stuck I felt, and it always came from a place of joy and self love.

I’m a mother of 2 kids who puts everyone else before myself, and joining Mel’s program has been the best decision I’ve ever made. I’m now off the crazy dieting wheel and enjoying a healthy lifestyle and looking forward to green juice everyday woohoo! Thank you for coming into my life, I owe u sooo much – I hear people speaking and it’s all diet stuff and I’m not even interested, my body is feeling awesome!!”
Working with Mel has totally changed my attitude towards food – it’s shifting me away from fear and towards love! But more important than that, Mel has helped me to realise I am exactly who and where I need to be right now! I wake up each morning genuinely excited for the day, knowing I’m going to be nourishing my bod and living life to the max! I’m proud to say I actually love myself now – I’ve never felt more confident or comfortable in my own skin!
Mel has introduced me to a whole new way of life, one of which I can still meet size requirement in my industry and at the same time look after and nourish my body. My hair and skin look great and I get more work now than ever before.

Wow, how things have changed for me – I’m no longer confused about what I should or shouldn’t be eating, cutting out food groups or going on yet another crazy diet only to feel like crap after a few days. The most dramatic change has been my mindset. I am a totally different person. Mel has truly given me my life back. I can’t thank her enough.

Since working with Mel I’ve been on a truly life changing rollercoaster of discovery! I’ve discovered a world of food that I never knew existed. I’ve had so many ‘OMG’ moments. So many ‘So that’s why’ moments. Mel has opened so many doors for me. Trying to write what Mel has done for me is impossible. I can’t thank her enough.

I hope you really do realise the impact and effect you have had Mel, I still find it amazing how working with you and the group has changed how I feel and look at my life I can’t thank you enough.
Mel’s 6 week group programme has been amazing, sharing my own issues and listening to others has been an enormous support and enabled me to change the way I look at my eating habits seeing this is so not a diet but a healthier way of life where I now nurture my body. It’s also been a safe place …
Ruth Dollen(grateful, happy and loved )UK
This program is the best investment I’ve ever made in myself. Week 2 and I feel better than ever, everything is falling into place, and for once I’m not on a diet! I’m finally beginning to enjoy food again and love myself and it’s all thanks to Mel. I can’t believe what a huge difference this program has made to every aspect of my life.
I can’t express enough my gratitude for Mel and her work. I must confess, I was hesitant in joining after being through several diet programs and a run in with the NHS weight loss program based in the UK, I was left very despondent. However whilst I was making other positive changes in other areas of my life, I wasn’t confronting the big elephant in the room.
Mel gave me the safety and security to confront what had led me here, and the safe space in which to make lifelong changes to my relati…
As soon as I saw the 6 week group programme, I signed up instantly. Not only have we been provided with a great programme which has now changed my perception of my relationship with food and myself – but I have gained so much more confidence, and my outlook in life has taken a shift towards positivity!
I’ve lost half a stone I am happy with it coming off slowly. Mel was a great shoulder throughout my six week plan – she was always available for advice or any concerns I had. She is truly an inspiration to women and she has become one of my good friends. I am really glad to have met her and experienced her program. Thank you Mel you really are brilliant.
Mel has made me re-evaluate what makes me happy and this has allowed me to make changes in my life that empower me! My relationship with food has totally changed! All I focus on now is trying to feed my body nutritious food that makes me happy, no scales, calorie counting or ‘good’ or bad” foods, just goodness! I am now in the process of applying for a new job, I have just ran a half marathon and have a new daily routine! All thanks to Mel and the other Goddesses!
