A couple of weeks ago I had the pleasure of meeting Astrid at a beauty and wellbeing open evening held at my local beauty salon, Time To Be Me. Astrid is a professional advisor and coach in wellbeing and nutrition and had prepared some tasty samples using her Beautysané products – the crème brulee was to die for! Read her story below to discover what Beautysané could do for you.
“Hi, I’m Astrid and I’m here to tell you how you can change the way you eat and the way you think about food…forever!
I’m originally from France, but moved to Portsmouth 6 months ago to join my husband, who was already living there. I’m a mother of 2 and I split my time and energy between enjoying my role as a mum alongside running my own business. When I moved over here I knew that my priority was to make sure my kids integrated well into their new environment and therefore made the decision that in order to get the flexibility I needed, I would start and run my own business.
This is how Eat Better to Live Better was born!
What is Eat Better to Live Better?
As a professional advisor in nutrition and wellbeing, I provide a free coaching program designed specifically for you.
You might want to:
- Lose weight
- Increase your sporting capacities
- Regain weight in a healthy way
- Maintain a level of fitness
I care about helping my clients achieve their goals, whatever those goals may be, and by using the French laboratory tested Beautysané NoYoYo method I can help you every step of the way.
The Beautysané method is based on the ‘3 wells’:
- Eating well
- Exercising well
Combining high quality products with the personalised support of 1-2-1 food balance advisors, Beautysané aims to slim you down and stabilise your weight at an achievable and healthy level.
The company itself has been running since 2012, when founder Sylvain Bonnet saw a gap in the market for a health product that took a brand new approach to help people lose weigh permanently.
Beautysané has gone on to win numerous awards, including:
- Nutridor 2012 – Best nutritional innovation in the category ‘Diet Slimming Products’
- Nutridor 2013 – Best communication in the category ‘Nutrition Book general public’
And Beautysané products are also recommended by the French Fund for the Welfare and Environment (FFBE).
Every year Beautysané invests time and money into research, development and innovation and as such, Beautysané products continue to be tasty, effective and of optimum quality.
What is the NoYoYo method?
As the name would suggest, the NoYoYo method is designed to fulfil your goals and to give you a lifestyle plan that prevents you from yo-yoing back to bad habits.
It is divided into three different phases:
Each of the phases are tailored, by a Beautysané advisor, to suit every individual’s needs, as they recognise that everyone is different. When you buy into the plan, not only do you get the Beautysané products, but you also get the much-needed support of your personal coach.
It’s simple…Beautysané promises:
- A balanced diet
- No restrictions
- No frustration
- Long term support
- To help you achieve your goals
- Education about health and nutrition
- Nutritional quality
- Good health
- A diet that is easy and fully adaptable to your lifestyle; no matter how hectic it may be
Why choose Beautysané?
Beautysané products are scientifically formulated to adapt to each stage of the NoYoYo plan. As you progress through the plan your body’s requirements will change and the products ensure that they meet each of these changes. The range of products contain 23 essential vitamins and minerals, which not only help to maintain a healthy shape and weight, but also to assist with healthy function of internal organs and to promote a general sense of positive well being
The benefits of Beautysané products are clear to see, just look at this!
They don’t contain:
- Palm oil
- Artificial colourings
- Mono Sodium Glutamate (MSG)
They do contain:
- 23 vitamins and minerals
- High-nutritional quality proteins
- Soluble fibres
- Complex carbohydrates
- Low calorie intake (approximately 200 kcal)
So, what makes Beautysané different to other diet products? Well, all of the powders can be included in recipes that require cooking, which means you can put them in cakes, pancakes, soups, puddings, but can also be included in recipes that require no cooking, such as smoothies and shakes. This versatility makes fitting it into a daily diet plan incredibly simple and ensures you don’t get bored of eating the same old things. As part of my commitment to you, as your coach, I will include lots of different recipes in your personalised programme, but for now here is one to get you started:
2 Scoops Energy Diet ‘Chocolate temptation’
125g Dark Chocolate
1 tsp. Baking Powder
3 tbsp. Sugar
4 tbsp. Flour
Simply combine all ingredients and bake in a moderate oven until well risen and the cake springs back from the tin.
My top tips for a healthier you!
Replace white flour with whole-wheat flour
Whole-wheat flour contains more fibre than white flour and this slows down the rate at which the body absorbs the carbohydrates. Put simply, this will leave you feeling fuller for longer and should therefore stop you eating more than you need. It also has the added benefit of containing more vitamins and minerals than white flour.
Just getting out in the fresh air for 30 minutes a day will work wonders for both your mental and physical health. 30 minutes is the ideal length of time, but even doing some of your daily chores, such as vacuuming, cleaning or washing your windows can count as part of your daily exercise plan.
Did you know…?
That sitting for 30 minutes a day, instead of walking, can cause weight gain of up to 1 kg per year!
Being thirsty and dehydrated can actually be mistaken for feelings of hunger and all too often people will eat when all they really needed to do was drink a glass of water. Before reaching for your favourite snack, try having a drink, waiting a few minutes and then reassess whether you are hungry or not. You will know very quickly if you were thirsty or if it was really a desire to eat.
Avoid fruit juices, sodas and other sugary drinks. These can very quickly increase your daily calorie intake and unless you do enough physical activity to balance this extra intake out, you will put on weight. Your waistline will expand and bloat, fat will store on your hips and you won’t be doing any favours to your teeth either.
Record weight loss
When we go on a diet, many of us can reach a point where we start to lose motivation. One way of helping prevent this is by writing down your weight loss on a calendar. This will give you a visual reminder of how well you have done and will give you a mental boost, which should be enough to kick start your motivation, increase your confidence and self belief, and encourage you to persevere with your goal.
Treat in moderation
The ‘extras’ are a part of life and what kind of a life is one that doesn’t include those special treats every once in a while. Occasional deviations are not fattening. It is the daily extras, for example fries for lunch, a chocolate bar every night, that are fatal! Remember: the key to a balanced diet is everything in moderation.
Our motto is – ‘Eat better to live better’
I consider the 3 basic needs of any human being to be:
We need to eat and drink well, to exercise and to keep our bodies healthy in order to say alive.
We need to be free of any body demons. Our minds can be our own worst enemies and until we rid ourselves of negativity we can never truly be free.
True happiness comes from acceptance. A combination of good health and positive well being is the path to a happy you.
I have a solution for every one of these needs, so if you want to find out more and start your incredible journey in order to Eat Better to Live Better, contact me and book a free consultation”
