I went to see Michelle primarily because I needed help controlling some long standing stomach issues.  Michelle suggested an eating plan that was easy to follow and allowed me to eat much more than I was before, but this time of the correct foods.  Within a week my stomach symptoms were under control and I was losing weight too!  In four months I lost just under 18 pounds, and the best part is I no longer take any medication for my stomach.  Michelle – I was skeptical at first about eating more and losing weight (!?) but guess what??  You were right!  Thank you for your friendliness, availability and support, and for turning my life around!

Through living and eating The Food Effect way, Michelle shows that food can be healthy and enjoyable at the same time.  The meals and recipes are outstanding, colourful and delicious, and about as far from dullness and deprivation as I could imagine!

Thank you to Michelle at The Food Effect for such inspirational, healthy and delicious recipes and meal ideas for the busy professional. As a busy doctor who never stops, they make eating well, extremely possible! “World Cup Pea Soup” is incredible!!!

Michelle didn’t put me on a “diet”, she taught me the value of healthy eating.
After my initial consultation, I expected to start my journey alone; however Michelle sent a detailed personalised meal plan just a few days later, together with numerous exciting, healthy and easy recipes to try.
Food and cooking has transformed from being a burden to being fun, colourful, exciting and delicious!
It is not an exaggeration to say that Michelle has changed my life (and the inside of my fridge and larder!).

Michelle was outstanding in educating and helping me see that I didn’t have to refrain from eating everything I loved to achieve a healthy, slimmer me. I have lost 10 kilograms and kept it off and I am still having my beloved fried egg sandwich on a Friday morning!  I feel better than I have in many years.

I went to see Michelle precisely because she is medically qualified – I truly believe that someone who influences my diet needs to have a holistic approach and only someone medically, as well as nutritionally qualified has the ability to do that. I’m a challenging case because I have lots of food fads which, (along with keeping kosher), means I have a pretty restricted diet. Nevertheless, Michelle was able to design a diet for me that I’ve been able to follow since seeing her originally a year ago (last January).

I went to see her weighing 95 kilos and I’m now 83kg. I could do with shedding quite a few kilos more and thanks to Michelle I know exactly how to do that…  it’s just a question of how disciplined I am in following the personalised plan she developed for me (which really is so simple & manageable, I have no excuse!)
