Iâ€™d like to thank you personally for the fantastic presentation on POWERFUL NUTRITION at our school last week. In my sixteen years of teaching, of all the Mothers day presents, Fathers day gifts, Christmas goodies, portfolios etc, that I have given to the parents, I have never received so many thank yous from the parents. Certainly changing attitudes in young children begins with the parents. I can already see changes being made in the childrenâ€™s lunch boxes.
I think your presentation should be renamed to the â€œGift of Lifeâ€™. Anyone who is prepared to make important changes based on realistic and easy to understand information will be given that â€“ an extended happier & healthier life.

All I can say is WOW!!!!Â Thank you for being so sensibly normal about diet/lifestyle.
The first seminar I was attending to support my wife. Here we go another person telling people about some fad dietâ€ Well I was very wrong. Let me tell you a little bit about me.
I am 49 years old 6ft tall with high blood pressure. I have a very physical job & am very active. I was one of those people who could eat almost anything & not gain weight, but that has changed in the last 8 or so years. So I was watching what I ate but my weight was slowly going up not drastically but it was bothering me and I was losing my strength. I wasÂ looking around at other 40 something guys with massive bellies & thinking I don’t want to look like that.
I came home from your seminar, my wife & I went through the pantry & threw stuff in the bin. We made the changes. I have lost 9kg I have more energy, am stronger & I feel fantastic. Thank you, keep up the great work.
Thanks for a really interesting and powerful talk a couple of weeks ago. While I always had a concept of what is ‘healthy’, learning the actual amount of what we need to eat (fruit, veg, protein etc) was really beneficial. Since your seminar we’ve aimed to implement your plan of how much we should be eating and when, how much protein we should be eating and when, and making breakfast our largest meal of the day (and dinner the smallest).
Even these simple changes have had a huge impact on how I’m feeling. I feel like I have more energy, and I feel less ‘cloudy’ I suppose, it’s hard to describe. Our running training has been noticeably easier, and in only a week I’ve lost a kilo without trying.
We had a long weekend in Sydney recently which involved a lot of eating out and a birthday party, and we didn’t get nearly enough veg in,Â had too much booze and I’ve been feeling sluggish ever since. So I’ve been reminded how I used to feel most of the time.
I found that thinking about what I need to eat, rather than what I need to avoid has been good too. It’s not a mental state of deprivation, it’s one of abundance, and it’s great to be excited about wanting to eat what is going to make me feel energised and good.
To put things in perspective – I am very much a devotee of hot chips and a glass (or three) of wine, so I’m not by any means a health extremist. But now I just don’t want to eat all that other stuff – it’s weird, in all the years I’ve spent reading about nutrition and weight loss, I’ve never felt so compelled so easily to follow something. Not only do I carry in my head ‘live food and dead food’ all the time now, I am very much reminded of why we should be eating this way, and have tangible results that tell me my body is happier for it.

My 2 Primary age children attended your school sessionsÂ and I attended your Seminar with the teachers and parents.
Although consciously aware, I was blown away by the home truths you confirmed to us all in attendance. Whilst being amazed, feeling a bit (a lot) guilty and blatantly educated, I embraced your wisdom and emotion and though very serious, your humour.
My children, also astonished though enthusiastic, are willing to make big changes in our daily habitual motionsÂ to continueÂ living and sharingÂ more happy healthy happy lives.Â I wasÂ generally a very health conscious person, till somewhere in the last few years, convenience and haste meant junk became more frequent in our lifestyle, cupboard and fridge…..guilt…..Â and I guess, we began slowly killing ourselves thinking the other kids have these things but my kids don’t and all that jazz.
Having attended your incredible slap-in-the-face awakening, I really wish my partner couldÂ haveÂ joined me yesterdayÂ to fully understand what the kids and I do.Â He is hearing us yet your presentation was so powerful and direct I don’t think his eyes, ears and mind, see what we did. FANTASTIC!!!!!!
I believe in so much of whatÂ you levered out to those who were willing to listen and you haveÂ the ability to catch the attention of even those who were not.Â Truly an amazing experience and I thank you for the opportunity to embrace the reality of the world we live in and your pursuit in changing bad habits of ultimately a sad painful life to death, into an excitable healthy happy bouncy sharing existence……of course that’s what we want!!!!! Hell yeah!!!

I am 100% pleased I attended your seminar. What I found particularly useful was the explanation behind why and what we should eat. It was information I already knew but your graphic presentation made it hit home for me.
I know what foods make me feel good and feel bad. However, I still make bad choices, and I eat dead food with no consideration of the consequences. There seems to be a disconnect with my brain and body…. My brain knows itâ€™s all bad but my body goes for it. However, your graphic explanation of food entering your mouth and then what happens from there was ideal.
You have managed to take me to the next level, where I am now putting my knowledge into practice rather than just storing it on the shelf at the back of my mind.
In a nutshell, your presentation was simple but very effective.Â I dragged my boyfriend along and he was pleased he went. He too is making the right choices and taking more care. Itâ€™s great!Â Men donâ€™t seem to have the same concern for what they consume.
Helen’s seminar has some powerful information which at least could improve your health, vitality and energy levels, and atÂ best “save your life”. Better still Helen presents the informationÂ in aÂ unique and compelling wayÂ with plenty of humour, so that her message will stay with you for your long, long life.Â Simply if you areÂ not fully aware of the impact thatÂ food hasÂ on yourÂ body, then this seminar is a must attend – it could save your life.
