WHAT HAPPENED NEXT?
I left the bodybuilding scene and ditched the highly processed supplements that went with it.
I stopped calorie counting and weighing food, and welcomed back healthy fats.
I began exercising for enjoyment instead of punishment. I started enjoying more walking and yoga which previously would have been a “waste of time”
I decided to start eating for self-care, not self-restriction or punishment and let go of the scales.
I went on to finish a nutrition degree at Massey University and moved into private practice with a focus on whole foods and lifestyle nutrition.
Where I am now
My Full Credentials
After surgery in November 2015, I tore a muscle in my hip from overdoing things post surgery. I had no idea it would take so long to heal and as a result of not being able to do the usual levels of exercise I was accustomed to, I packed on 8kgs. I was feeling pretty miserable as my husband and I were also trying to conceive and just weren’t getting anywhere. My physiotherapist recommended seeing a nutritionist and Kimberley was able to squeeze me in which I was so grateful for. The tips and the tailor-made plan she set me up with saw some amazing results. Not only did I steadily lose 8kgs over a couple of months, but my husband and I also conceived 7 weeks after starting the new eating regime. I felt amazing, with so much energy and my clothes felt comfortable again. Kimberley has been a great support as I’ve transitioned into pregnancy and I highly recommend her.
In 2012 I had two surgeries for an abscess on my tailbone, after which I developed adrenal/chronic fatigue from August onward. I had absolutely no energy to attend school and quickly gained weight from being inactive for so long. I was 77kg at my first visit with Kimberley, and by the 3rd month I had lost 10kgs total – without any extra exercise! I also lost the discomfort after eating meals that didn’t suit me, but more importantly for me, I gained a new energy, confidence and an interest in a healthy lifestyle that I will carry with me for the rest of my life. Without Kimberley’s guidance I would never have been able to have achieved so much this year but now I have my life back as well as a healthy relationship with food. I truly couldn’t have done it without her help! Thank you!
Kimberley has literally changed my life, she has shown me how to enjoy food again. I have lost weight in the past but this was always at the expense of muscle mass, with Kimberley this is not the case, in fact I have increased muscle. My energy levels are the best they have ever been and I am currently the fittest I have ever been, this is a direct result of the plan Kimberley has in place for me. With Kimberley there is no ‘you must eat this!’ it is more a case of Kimberley knowing what I like and coagulating this with her own knowledge and expertise. I now eat plates full of colour, my grocery bill is greatly reduced and I no longer have diet anger. I don’t see this as a diet as Kimberley has given me a lifestyle change. I would recommend Kimberley to anyone who wants to live healthier
Kimberley is amazing. She makes you feel SO comfortable – she isn’t into weighing and measuring and fat testing if you’re not comfortable with it – but if you want that – she will do it. But she will also always get to understand where your head is at, works with your mindset around food which is so important and I feel I have made huge progress with that so far since working with her. Cannot recommend her enough! You rock Kimberley!
I came to Kimberley for her knowledge of nutrition,what I should be eating & how much.Being a builder & into CrossFit,I was quite lethargic,always tired & trying to gain some mass.I’ve been working with Kimberley for 6 or 7 months now & the results are fantastic.Not only am I eating better,I have a lot more energy & have put on about 5kg lean mass.
Would definitely recommend her to anyone looking to change their diet &/or nutrition!
Kimberley is an outstanding health professional. Knowledgeable, compassionate and well balanced. She has achievements in sports and fitness herself and really understands different issues faced by female athletes and people balancing their eating and training.
