Between 2013-2014 I lost ‘(SHED)’ 8 stone in weight… Yes, that’s over 50kg.
I didn’t achieve this using any diet, or by taking any supplements, I did it through serious hard work, motivation and determination. I changed my lifestyle completely by eating a balanced healthy diet and exercising regularly. I achieved this slowly and sustainably enabling a lifelong transformation.
My dramatic weight loss ignited a passion within me to help others achieve what I did, and I truly believe anyone can do it. I began training as a Personal trainer and Nutritional advisor, as well as working in Pharmacy.
Sadly, in 2015 I was diagnosed with a Chronic Neurological Illness and my world was turned upside down. Cooking and being creative in the kitchen became my therapy. Not only did it take my mind off being ill, but I’d learnt a lot about nutrition during my weight loss and it inspired me to use this knowledge to promote healthy eating.
After many different experiments and recipes, combined with plenty of taste testing by friends, family and my local gym crew, I began to build COCONUTSHED. COCONUTSHED became my outlet, my way of being able to show people that it’s possible to enjoy tasty treats while nourishing your body, without all the sugar and additives. A brand new path for me to help others like I had always wanted to, but in a completely new way.
All of my products are lovingly made, to nourish the body from the inside out, I have used nutritious ingredients that I know can do wonders for the body. They are all wheat/gluten, dairy and refined sugar free. They are also vegan friendly.
Whilst COCONUTSHED is still therapy for me, I now have the added bonus of being able help others with their health and also bring a smile to people’s faces… whilst promoting healthy eating.
