My Transformation from Junk Food Binges to Kale Loving Weight Loss Expert

IMG_3558I don’t want you to just know me as “Ciara the Nutritionist” !  I want you to know WHO I am and WHY you can TRUST me.

This is my Story.

I live with my two daughters ages 2 and 10 in Toronto, Canada.  In 2003, after having given birth to my first daughter, I found myself depressed, 50lbs over weight and inactive with a major sugar addiction.  I hated how exhausted I always felt and I could barely stand to look at myself in the mirror.

Prior to my pregnancy I was 115 pounds 5’3 and very active.  I went to the gym at 6:30am 5 days a week AND added a few spinning classes in the evening. But I did that for “vanity” purposes.  At that point in my life, I did NOT “get it“.  I was not tuned into my body.  I certainly wasn’t listening to it talking to me in the form of symptoms such as headaches, gas, bloating, constipation, brutal PMS and even cystic acne.  I was eating low fat, low calorie, sugar free and didn’t think twice about how exercising made me “feel” let alone my “health”. I only cared how I looked in the mirror.

My life was EXHAUSTING!

  1. Hello Ciara,
    This is really amazing and inspiring transformation. You are glowing and it looks like your stronger not only physically. : )
    The last few years I had many ups and downs and changes in my life. I have lost the right way but now I am getting back on track with my training and trying to make up a diet.
    A year ago I discovered I had a hypofunction of my Tryroid. And suddenly everything was coming up in place – I understood why no matter how much I was training or swimming or looking after my diet I was losing nothing. I was also constantly tired.
    I am 20 years old now and I know there are many things to see and do. One of the things I want to achieve is to be more strong, energized, confident and this will really help toward my other goals.
    I got L-Thyroxine 25 mg from March 2013 until – July 2013. After that from July 2013 until December 2013 I had L-Thyroxine 100 mg. From December on until now I am using L-Thyroxine 75 mg. The doctor mentioned something of reducing the Iodide in my diet but nothing more.
    Ciara, do you have any ideas or thoughts what I can cut from my diet and what I can enrich it with?

    All the best wishes for the New Year to you and your family. May the new year bring you lots of health, success, love and happiness.

    Best wishes,
    Galina G
