CAN I DO THE PROGRAM WHILE PREGNANT OR BREASTFEEDING?
Sure can, all of the recipes and meal plans are nutritionally balanced to provide all the essential macro nutrients you need on pregnancy. The only exception is I recommend you include red meat and chicken during the 2 week 'cleanse and alkalise stage'.
DO I NEED TO OWN A JUICER TO UNDERTAKE THE PROGRAM?
Whilst investing in a juicer will be a worthwhile step towards achieving and maintaining optimal health and wellbeing for life, you can use a blender or nutri bullet instead. Alternatively you can visit your local health food store and buy a fresh organic juice. Just be sure to ask them to make it according to the recipe recommended in my e-book or Love Your Gut.
HOW LONG UNTIL I WOULD EXPECT TO SEE RESULTS ON THE PROGRAM?
You'll see results within the first week of implementing the eating program and these will continue to progress for as long as you maintain it. Remember the EYH program is not designed as a 'diet' but rather a way of eating for life. Depending on your level of health entering into the program, will determine how long it will take you to reach your health goals. Remember many factors influence your health, including your lifestyle, stress levels, sleep, work hours, and of course your compliance to the eating program. The program does not address specific nutrient deficiencies so these will need to be assessed through a personal consultation if desired. prescribed to you.
Most importantly, the EYH online program is designed to help you facilitate the implementation of the eating program contained within my book, Love Your Gut, in addition to providing the tools and resources you need to apply the program for life.
The eating program contained within my book "Love Your Gut' is aligned with the food philosophies and recommendations within the EYH online program, so even if you have a copy of my book, you'll be building on your knowledge around food and gut health with the online program, beyond what is contained in the book.
The EYH online program is designed to step you through the program gradually, via daily educational video's and emails, designed to keep you motivated and focused on achieving your health goals. The best part is you'll have access to the members only Facebook Group, where you'll have access to me and other program members, so you'll never feel alone on your journey to achieving optimal health!

The online program also includes my highly sort after advice for managing thyroid and autoimmune conditions.
ARE THERE VEGAN & VEGETARIAN OPTIONS?
Whilst the eating program includes both vegetarian and vegan recipes and meals plans, and many of the recipes can be adjusted to suit vegetarian and or vegan options, the eating program is more designed to suit vegetarians over vegans, with more vegetarian and paleo recipe options
IS THE PROGRAM SUITABLE FOR LOVERS OF THE PALEO DIET?
Sure is! The program recommends gluten and dairy free and low sugar recipes and meal plans and also supports grain free options
DOES THE PROGRAM REQUIRE LOTS OF COOKING?
If drive thru Macca’s or Chinese takeaway has been your idea of a home cooked meal, then no doubt there'll be making an adjustment as learning to prepare nutritious and delicious meals for you and your family is one of the most important life skills you can have for your health! But no need to stress, because I have designed my recipes to be super quick and easy for busy, time poor people, with no prior cooking experience required and many of them can be doubled or tripled to store in the fridge or freezer for the next day or two. With any luck you may even enjoy your new found inner master chef!
CAN I EAT OUT ON THE PROGRAM?
Sure can, as long as you choose a restaurant or cafe that offers food recommended on the program, which is pretty easy nowadays with all the gluten free options.

IS THE 6WK PROGRAM SUITABLE IF I HAVE FOOD SENSITIVITIES OR ALLERGIES?
My nutritional philosophies are based on eliminating the most common 8 foods and beverages that people tend to experience an intolerance or sensitivity to. The aim of avoiding these foods is to significantly reduce underlying chronic inflammation caused by food sensitivities or intolerances. Avoiding these specific foods for a period of time, will help to to regulate your immune responses and eliminate any symptoms associated with food sensitivities or intolerances.
Because my program also teaches you how to repair your gut - a critical step in healing your health - this will help to reduce your overall sensitivity to specific foods over time. Of course if there are any additional foods you know you have a sensitivity or allergy to, you should continue to eliminate these from your diet as well.
DO I NEED TO CUT OUT ALCOHOL AND COFFEE?
Coffee and alcohol are two of the most common substances that cause problems with our health, for the simple reason that they place excess stress on our liver and adrenal glands. If you're serious about getting healthy and feeling the best you have ever felt, then doesn’t it make sense to avoid the things that make you look and feel anything but your best? It’s only for 28 days and I’ve included plenty of healthy and delicious beverages you can swap your coffee for so you won’t be craving your morning caffeine hit and you’ll feel so good you won’t want miss the alcohol either.
WILL I MANAGE THE 'EYH PROGRAM' IF I WORK FULL TIME?
Sure will! Not only is the program accessible 24/7 so you can go through the daily videos in your own time and pace, but the program is designed to show busy people how quick and easy it is to lead a healthy life. My recipes and meal plans include plenty of easy to prepare meals and snacks and I'll provide you with ways to get your meals organised for a busy week ahead.
IS THE PROGRAM SUITABLE FOR MY WHOLE FAMILY, OR WILL I HAVE TO PREPARE DIFFERENT MEALS?
The Eat Yourself Healthy Program is designed for anyone and everyone who wants to get healthy and stay that way for life.
I am not about fad diets and advise against cooking separate meals for you and your family, because everyone should learn about how to eat healthy food - it's also one of the best gifts you can give your children.
If you want to adjust certain meals, say you have a vegetarian in your family and everyone else eats meat, all of the recipes are easy to adjust to suit different needs, but this program is not about deprivation or eating like a rabbit!
During the two week cleanse stage where I recommend you avoid animal protein, you can easily add a serve of animal protein for the kids or your partner if necessary.
