"After years of trying I lost 30kg in just over 6 months with Sustenance Nutrition Clinic. No crazy fads, no excessive exercise, just good nutrition. I could't recommend Sutenance Nutrition Clinic highly enough. Thanks Sue!"
"I've always been bigger than the other kids. In high school I was teased for being the tall, solid girl. It was difficult for me to understand what was going on, I ate the same food as my family and played sport 3 times a week. My siblings were and still are both very slim. Yet at 6 foot tall and eating the same as them, I was overweight and was wearing a size 14. This made me a target for bullies and I had a very hard time at school.
After leaving school and seeing numerous doctors, I discovered I had Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) a complex hormonal disorder affecting approximately 12-18% of the population. Women with PCOS can experience irregular menstrual cycles, excessive hair growth, acne, anxiety, depression and obesity to name a few. I was put on a contraceptive pill to help with my periods and hair growth. Unfortunately this resulted in me gaining approximately 6kg.
My doctor told me that to help with my symptoms I should lose weight. However he never told me how, or gave me any help. I was already careful with my diet and tried to exercise regularly but I decided to join a gym with my mum to try and shift some weight. Unfortunately nothing happened and I continued to gain weight.
This increased my anxiety issues and lowered my self-confidence dramatically, I was placed on an anti-anxiety medication. This caused me to gain 10kg in one month! It was terrifying. After years of trying I nearly gave up, nothing was working and I was continuing to gain weight. One day while at the hairdressers, my mum saw a flyer for Sustenance Nutrition Clinic. Worried about me, she got me to book and appointment with Sue Verhey.
Sue was amazing, she helped me to understand my condition and what certain foods did to me. She tailored a diet to suit my individual needs. The changes weren't huge and I found that I could easily adopt them. After seeing Sue, I have managed to lose 30kg in just over 6 months, through proper nutrition and guidance. No excessive exercise. No crazy fads. Just the right foods for my body.
Thank-you so much Sue, I couldn't have done it without you. "
