Question &Answer - Why choose Vicki
Q. Describe the most common types of jobs you do for your clients.
A. My usual clients are either men or women wanting to lose body fat and keep muscle. A lot are already eating a ‘healthy’ range of foods but do not have the correct balance of proteins, carbs and fats. Sometimes it is as simple as a tweek in this balance that can cause a cascade of fat loss and massive, swift improvements in wellbeing, sleep, energy, hormonal balance, stress adaption, bowels, mood and more. Some are exercising until they are blue in the face and not achieving weight or fat loss. I explain to them that 80% of weight loss is through diet and how important the correct balance of macronutrients for their specific biochemistry and genetics is. It is of the utmost importance to design an eating plan that suits the patient’s individual body, schedule and lifestyle.
Q. Why does your work stand out from others who do what you do?
A. PERSONALISED, DETAILED SUPPORT: I deliver a very personalised, one-on-one service that addresses you as an individual. No group meetings, just personalised support with me, a registered clinical nutritionist. I work together with you in detailed sessions and have a genuine concern for your success. Vicki will fit your specific Nutrition Eating plan into your lifestyle with comprehensive support in four main areas - hormonally behaviourally, with a structured and balanced eating plan, and with exercise.
FOODS YOU LIKE TO EAT: We will use diet and the foods you like to eat to design an eating program together. There may be a few food swaps out and replacements but it will always be the foods you like and thus can sustain for a lifestyle approach. I do not use shakes and only use supplements if completely necessary to aid in hormonal balance and organ optimization.
FLEXIBLE EATING SYSTEM: The plans are individualised and suited to the family structure and dining out. You will be able to be flexible with your plan and obtain a permanent solution.
QUICK RESULTS THROUGH BALANCED EATING: The key is balance between protein, carbs and fat and you will enjoy this combination of macro-nutrients. I always receive feedback of how clients 'love this way of eating' and see real results you will love..
I take a multifaceted approach that takes into account hormonal imbalances, digestive issues, metabolic issues, stress, social influences, allergies, environmental factors, heavy metal toxicity, meal timing, and individual lifestyles. Emotional and behavioural approaches and strategies compliment the nutritional and physiological needs of the patient and complete the synergistic and high effective program towards real and lasting change. We design a program together that will suit you as a lifestyle so maintenance of results is achieved.
Q. What do you like most about your job?
A. Weight loss nutrition consulting is my passion. I have worked in this arena for most of my practising life (18 years). I am confident that I can help those wanting to lose weight, increase energy, improve hormonal control and balance emotions (to name a few). It changes lives. I am fore-filled by helping others achieve their goals and helping them to feel good about themselves and their lives. It is delightful to see my clients so appreciative and achieve optimize and peak performance in their daily lives.
Q. What questions do customers most commonly ask you?
A. DO I NEED TO FOLLOW THIS WAY OF EATING FOREVER? As long as you are eating in balance you are feeling magnificent and maintaining your weight loss. If you eat out of balance you will feel terrible and gain weight. You will find the plan is easy and flexible so it will not be a chore to eat 'on plan'. Your maintenance plan will be even more flexible than your weight loss plan and yes, alcohol can be included.
CAN I GO OFF PLAN FOR BIRTHDAYS, CELEBRATIONS, HOLIDAYS ETC? Yes, I have a comprehensive "Blow out" protocol that will get you back in shape right away. You can enjoy these times without having to worry. It is very easy to get back on track after such events.
HOW LONG BEFORE I SEE RESULTS? People often comment on getting their “zest for life” back within 3 short days. The average weight loss in your first week and each week thereafter is 1-2 Lbs. Any more than this will promote muscle degradation and reductions in metabolism. As a Registered Clinical Nutritionist, Vicki emphasises balance and healthy permanent weight loss.
IS THERE ANY ADVANTAGE TO REFER A FRIEND OR FAMILY MEMBER? Yes, if you both sign up together you will each receive a reduction in your programs.
MOST WEIGHT LOSS PLANS LEAVE YOU HUNGRY AND CRAVING, DOES YOUR PLAN DO THIS? Absolutely not! In fact, quite the opposite. Clients report hunger and cravings have gone within 3 days on the plan and do not come back. They are obviously wrapped with this positive effect as it increases motivation and results.
I HAVE ALLERGIES/HIGH CHOLESTEROL/DIABETES/HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE/COELIAC'S/CHRON'S/FIBROMYALGIA/CHRONIC FATIGUE SYNDROME, CAN I USE THE PLAN? because you will be working with a highly trained Clinical Nutritionist, you can be rest assured I have all the clinical knowledge to help you and your condition. I have considerable experience with various conditions, these conditions included.
ARE THERE PAYMENT PLANS AVAILABLE? Yes, there are 3 types of payment options available to clients. 1 instalment, 2 instalments or pay as you go.
CAN I INCORPORATE YOUR EATING PLAN INTO MY LIFE AFTER I HAVE LOST THE WEIGHT? Absolutely. It is designed as a lifestyle plan. Vicki's Nurition and Weight Loss Eating plans are very versatile and sustainable and is, in fact a recommended way of life!
Q. Do you have a favorite story from your work?
A. I have had so many favourite and successful patients that is it extremely hard to just say one. I love working with everyone and each patient is unique in their own way and achieves outstanding results. I love seeing their transformation into an empowered individual who feels good about themselves and are now taking on exciting goals in their lives and living life to the fullest.
I have seen so many people recover from chronic illnesses along with obesity/weight gain and obtain a new lease on life. It feels amazing when they say that I have changed their lives so much and they are so thankful. I am honored to be able to help them in such a life changing way.
One lady that I consulted with was working 2 jobs, studying law full time, had 5 kids and was a single mother. She was adrenally fatigued, chronically tired, had endometriosis and chronic female hormonal imbalances, insomnia, anxiety, depression, irritability, massive sugar cravings and hunger, gut disturbances, fibromyalgia…you name it. She was a broken woman when I first met her. She broke down in tears and was at her wits end. We got her on the eating plan straight away which was tailored specifically to her chemistry, food preferences, food timing, schedule and lifestyle. After just 1 week I saw her and she said she felt like a new woman. There was still pain of course but it had markedly reduced and she said her energy level went from a 2/10 and being tired all day to 8/10 and having sustained energy throughout the day. She had stopped craving sugar and chocolate and she said she didn’t even feel hunger anymore. Her blood sugars were balanced and she even started exercising. Which was amazing because she could hardly lift her arm when I first saw her. She had already started to lose weight and fat in that first week. In fact she lost 6lbs in that first week. Her muscle was improving which is unheard of when the stress levels are so high. Cortisol, a stress hormone, tends to break down muscle mass. But with the correct eating plan for her body, chemistry and genetics, she was thriving. Needless to say, she reached her fat loss goal and got into all the clothes she had kept from years gone by from before she had the children. We got on top of all her conditions and her mood improved quickly and consistently. As the weeks went on her female system balanced out and her hormones corrected. She was well again. Now able to cope with the demands of her extremely demanding life, she was overjoyed and referred a lot of patients to see me. I am so passionate about helping people that their goals are my goals. I want for them what they want for themselves. I become very close to my patients and naturally feel a nurturing and bonding.
Q. What do you wish customers knew about you or your profession?
A. Most weight loss centers use shakes, supplements and/or injections. They do not address the cause of your weight gain or correct hormonal and organ function. Therefore they will only be a short term solution. Unfortunately, fat will come back on your body with interest. You will be larger and at a higher health risk than when you started.
In addition, taking shakes or partaking in a very low calorie diet will cause loss of muscle and slowing on your metabolic rate that can effect your thyroid and slow it for life. This means your next weight loss attempt will be harder and less effective unless you are partaking in one of Vicki's Nutrition and Weight Loss Eating plans and correcting imbalances for life.
These kinds of faulty weight loss attempts can also lead to fatty liver resulting in lowing of fat loss, toxicity and high blood fats (and heart disease).
Q. How did you decide to get in your line of work?
A. I was inspired to start my own business as I did not see what I wanted to offer out in the market place. There was no weight loss programs or clinic’s that offered a holistic approach to weight loss and nutrition. Sure, they said they did. But when it came down to it, that was not true. Holistic to me means Body, Mind and Soul. Because weight is so effected by stress levels, emotions and beliefs, I felt it was imperative to address these along with the physical aspects of nutrition and diet. I wanted to create a solution that promoted a positive and empowering lasting change. I am very passionate about my work to nurture patients with a results driven approach to correct food balance as well as addressing emotional issues and blocks.
Q. Tell us about a recent job you did that you are particularly proud of.
A. I sold my Australian multi Clinical Nutrition clinic in December 2013 and moved to Boise Idaho to spend time with my husband’s mother.
When in Australia, my highly successful, busy clinic serviced thousands of clients of which most of them referred at least one other friend or family member. I prided my practice on this as it showed how much people were happy to refer and wanted the same massive benefits they had received to be experienced by their loved one.
Q. Do you do any sort of continuing education to stay up on the latest developments in your field?
A. For registration as a Nutritionist, it is a requirement to partake in continued education each year. I subscribe to journals, participate in webinars, constantly read relevant books and research. I have a passion for being up to date with nutrition and weight loss and am constantly integrating cutting edge technology and knowledge into my eating plans.
Q. If you have a complicated pricing system for your service, please give all the details here.
A. It is best to have a FREE Assessment Consultation to discuss your needs and which program will work best for you. I have 3 programs - 1 month, 3 months and 5 months support. I also have 3 payment options - 1 instalment, 2 instalments and a weekly payment plan. We will work out which will work best for you in that consultation. This consultation is at no obligation.
