As a nutrition consultant, Jacquie has completed the training and has the necessary qualifications to advise on diet and nutrition. She's fully trained and registered with the Federation of Nutritional Therapy Practitioners and the General Regulatory Council for Complementary Therapists.
However, perhaps more importantly, both she and her husband David, have been overweight in the past and really understand what it feels like. Let us tell you more...
Skinny as a teenager and in her 20’s, after having children in her 30’s, Jacquie’s weight gradually crept up. Never hugely overweight, but classified as overweight on the BMI measurement, & never comfortable with how she looked and more importantly, how she felt.
David has always struggled with his weight and has been classified as overweight or obese according to BMI from his 20’s. Losing weight using a wide variety of diets and then predictably putting it plus a little bit back on! The crunch came when he saw what was frankly an awful photo of himself and he knew he had to do something.
However, they both knew it had to be a new way of life, not just another diet that wouldn’t work!
And so, we embarked on a journey of discovery, researching the diet market, reading the latest studies and information available on the subject. Jacquie then devised a plan, we both made a decision and stuck to it for the next 12 weeks.
In that short period, David, starting at 16 stone 5lb, lost just over 3 stone to reach 13 stone 4 and Jacquie lost 1 stone 11lb, to reach 10 stone 6. David had gone from ‘obese’ on the BMI scale to ‘overweight’ and Jacquie from ‘overweight’ to ‘normal’.
Since the end of the 12 weeks, we’ve both lost a bit more weight and David for the first time since his early 20’s has had a ‘normal weight’ BMI.
Inspired by David’s new found joy of eating and delight in the fact that he had lost this weight without feeling that we had been on a diet, that’s when The Mediterranean Way was born.
We genuinely wanted to share what we had learnt and help others achieve the weight loss and lifestyle changes that we have - because we know this works, and it can work for you too...so come & join us.
And of course, with our money-back guarantee, you've literally got nothing to lose other than weight!
The Mediterranean Way focuses on what works as a lifestyle, not a diet.
At The Mediterranean Way we believe in a simple way of life. Guided by a few principles we aim to help people transform their lives through the power of good food and awareness.
