Meet these Incredible Women.

Meet Fran Porter

fran.jpg

Fran joined the Renew You Small Group Coaching Program towards the end of last year.  Her eating patterns were sporadic and as a busy working mom, she found it challenging to prioritize her own nutritional needs and self-care. 

 

Despite this, Fran was a key contributor to the group and diligently implemented the principles that were recommended, while also finding the balance for her life.

 

The results have been remarkable, and she continues to progress, incorporating strength workouts from our in-house personal trainer, Holly Talbot.  Fran is toning up, burning fat, building muscle, and growing in confidence.  I feel honored to have been a part of her transformation and to have witnessed it firsthand.  Fran remains an active member of our community, participating in the Renew You Academy - the lifestyle membership for Jane MacGregor Health and Wellness graduates.

What motivated you to join the Renew You Health and Nutrition program?  

I saw the results that Jane was involved with for other friends and knew I needed her help. 

 

What were your initial goals when you started the program?

Weight loss and a clearer path through all the information. 

 

Can you share some specific changes you've noticed in your health and wellbeing since completing the program? 

Having a proper breakfast and lunch has given me energy and stopped me snacking. The plan makes it very, very simple.

 

How did Jane and the program support you in achieving your goals?

Having a very clear plan means I don't have to think about it.  I just do it.  Life is busy and I have not had the brain space to think about myself.  This was someone else I trust that does it for me.

 

Were there any particular aspects of the program that you found most beneficial or impactful?

The guidance, the groups support and chat has helped enormously.

 

How has your relationship with food and nutrition changed and in what ways did the program help you develop healthier habits and routines?

Breakfast and lunch again have made the biggest impact.  

 

How would you describe your overall experience with the program?

Breath of fresh air into my life when I needed it.  The program is more than just food and weight.  It's ladies sharing their highs and Lows which we can all learn from.

Aurore reached out to me with a goal in mind: to shed some weight and adopt nutrition habits that would boost her health and confidence.  After diving into the program, Aurore made incredible progress, shedding a total of 11.5lbs.  And let me tell you, the results speak volumes!  Not only does she look fantastic, but she's also glowing with newfound confidence and youthfulness.

What were your initial goals when you started the nutrition coaching program? How did you feel both emotionally and physically before you started on the program?

Loose 10 pounds by understanding how I could make better food choices to burn fat more easily.
I felt ok but had some mood swings and was not 100% confident physically.

 

How did the nutrition coaching program align with your expectations?

The program helped me understand what food to best eat and to avoid in order to burn fat.  This is thanks to the meal plans and the education provided along the weeks.

 

Can you share any specific results or achievements you experienced during the program?

My mood is stable and I have energy throughout the day. I lost 11.5 lbs.
I can maintain my new weight even after the end of the program as I understand the key principles and can make optimal choices.  My self esteem and self confidence are boosted.

 

How did the coaching sessions impact your understanding of nutrition and your relationship with food?

The coaching sessions were helpful to translate into practice my understanding of the weekly education packs and to get the reassurance that I was on the right track.

 

How did the Jane support and guide you throughout the program?

Jane provided the right customized support and guidance to me.   Answered questions when needed and even went over and beyond my expectations when I was away in Europe.   She is genuine and kind and has a true interest in the wellbeing of her clients.

 

Did you face any challenges during the program, and if so, how were they addressed?

Dealing with weekends and alcohol.  We discussed upfront and it helped me planning and anticipating those challenges. Also, by getting back straight back to the meal plans after.

 

How has your lifestyle or habits changed as a result of the nutrition coaching?

I am more aware of what I decide to eat or not.  I have discovered new food items and incorporated those in my diet.  Overall I have increased my protein intake and decreased my sugar intake.

 

Would you recommend this nutrition coaching program to others, and if so, why?

Yes! It is easy to follow, it is a life long learning investment, the recipes are delicious, you are not counting calories, you are not hungry and you feel so much better in your body and your mind.

MeeCandice Maitland

Candice became a part of the Renew You Small Group Coaching Program in November 2023, and right from the start, she brought an exceptional energy and commitment to the table. 

 

She fully embraced the program, and her remarkable transformation over the course of the 10 weeks to date speaks volumes.  Not only did she achieve incredible results, but she also became an invaluable member of the small group coaching sessions, actively engaging and contributing to the community. 

Throughout her journey, Candice discovered the sustainability of this healthy lifestyle and managed to strike a perfect balance, leading to her impressive achievements.  Her journey exemplifies not just a physical body composition transformation, but also a major reduction in menopause symptoms.  Candice looks and feels incredible.  I hope her story serves as an inspiration and example of what's possible.

What were your main health and wellness goals when you started the group coaching program?

My main goals were to have more energy, lose excess weight and improve overall fitness and health.  I also hoped it would help peri-menopause symptoms. I turned 50 this year, and have been struggling with weight, hormones, fatigue etc.  I tried to eat healthy, but as I've got older I am craving sugar more. 

 

How did Jane and the group coaching program help you make progress toward your goals?

The easy to follow meal plans which are very tasty and satisfying, as well as support from Jane and the online group and the Pilates and health education packets. 

 

I couldn’t have done it on my own. I struggled to even lose 1lb up until now.

Can you share any specific milestones or achievements during the program?

I now partake in regular exercise, which is something I hadn’t enjoyed before, apart from walking.

What are the main physical benefits you have experienced?

 

I have lot more energy, reduced anxiety and overall improved mood.  I have lost 17 pounds and my hot flushes have reduced significantly.  I am feeling good about myself!

What aspects of the program did you find most beneficial or impactful?

Cutting out sugar. I don’t miss it and feel so much better not having it in my diet.

How has your mindset or perspective on health changed as a result of the coaching program? 

I am a lot more conscious about what I eat and drink.

How would you describe the support and guidance provided by Jane throughout the program?

 

The support from Jane has been fabulous.  She is always there if needed and you can see she genuinely cares about her clients and loves what she does.

In what ways have your lifestyle, habits, or daily routines changed as a result of the program?

I am moving more. I actually feel bad if I sit around too much . My diet has improved greatly and I don’t feel like I need to have a glass of wine at the weekends.

Would you recommend the Renew You Coaching Program to others? If so, why?

Most definitely as I believe this program really works and Jane is a fabulous mentor.

MeeSarah Durbridge

Meet Sarah, a remarkable woman who respected and wholeheartedly embraced the1:1 program right from the start.  Her goal was to cultivate healthier habits, reduce menopause symptoms, and enhance her body composition.  In the account below, you'll discover that she not only set these targets but also achieved each one with remarkable success.

 

Sarah's transformation wasn't about deprivation, calorie counting, or meticulous tracking.  Instead, the focus was on the quality of calories rather than focusing on quantity.  By prioritizing the nutritional value of her food, Sarah witnessed a profound turnaround in her health, mindset and body composition.

Now, armed with established habits, Sarah is well-equipped to continue her journey towards a healthier and fuller life.  Her commitment and dedication deserve admiration, serving as an inspiration for others seeking positive change.

It is my hope that Sarah's journey resonates with and inspires other women to embark on their own transformative path to optimal health and wellbeing.

I recently completed Jane’s 12 week coaching program and would love to share my experience.


Going into the program my goal was to make a lasting change towards being more healthy.  I wanted to transform my body composition, in particular to shift stubborn fat around the middle.  I also wanted to cultivate healthier habits such as improving sleep and mobility, and to try to alleviate some minor health issues and menopause symptoms. 

Step one of the program was to complete a comprehensive lifestyle questionnaire about my goals, habits (sleeping/eating/exercise), nutrition and health.  Also included were questions about my food and nutrition preferences, and even some that caused a little self reflection.  My first thought was that this felt like a program that would be tailored to me, and that Jane wasn't providing a one-size-fits-all solution.  I was right.  The 12-week program is tailored to fit in with you, your lifestyle and your family.

 

Jane is clearly committed to her clients' well-being beyond the surface level and her guided approach meets you where you are at.  This personalized touch allowed Jane to address my questions, provide support, and offer brilliant hacks and recommendations (an added bonus!) that made the program enjoyable and sustainable.

 

The weekly check-ins allowed me to reflect on my week, and the education packs provided valuable insights throughout.  While I knew about (and had even tried) many of the lifestyle changes Jane encouraged, what I found particularly helpful was having accountability while these behaviors and actions became a habit Jane ensures you feel no guilt, no overwhelming pressure, and certainly no attempt to tackle too much at once.  For me, it was the perfect mix of guidance, support, and gentle persuasion

 

At the 12 week mark my body composition is much closer to where I want to be.  I am sleeping better, my hot flushes have almost disappeared and my blood pressure is the lowest it has been in several years I now know how to read my body - to take note of how I feel and be able to understand what my body needs.  I no longer crave something sweet after every meal, and constant snacking is a thing of the past


In conclusion, the program felt like a partnership and I would recommend Jane to anyone ready to embrace a holistic and sustainable path to health and wellness. It's also a great way to carve a little time out to focus on yourself for a while

Nearly 5 weeks ago I embarked on Jane's program.

 

My main motivator was that since arriving in the US I had gained nearly 2 stone in weight and had started to suffer with inflammation in my hands and hip.  I was active and thought I was eating a relatively healthy diet with plenty of fruit and veg and protein but pretty much every meal had refined carbs.  I also very regularly used to not eat breakfast, binge on diet soda and was also very fond of potato chips!

 

I had tried to lose weight and would restrict myself only to give up and binge.

 

After a recent injury and having spoken to Jane I decided to give her plan a go with the aim of dropping a few pounds.

From the very first encounter with Jane as a coach I was blown away with her knowledge and advice.

She is super organized, and the program is very straight forward.

 

I found the first week quite tricky as I had to really change basic habits which I had previously believed to be correct and had to re-educate myself and load up my pantry with new ingredients all of which were Jane Approved.

 

The first week everything was new and preparing meals took longer as I wanted to make sure I followed the program 100 percent.  I found the withdrawal of Diet Coke really hard but after day 5 this eased.

 

I loved the meals and enjoyed preparing them and taking lots of pictures as I couldn't believe how much I was eating.

 

The weight just started to fall off....and I wasn't hungry or feeling like I was missing out on anything.

Fast forward and at the 1 month mark I was 14Lbs lighter, I no longer had any cravings for anything food related.

 

We are now on week 5 and now I am finding that I will eat before 6pm at night and not again until 10am the following day, my sleep has improved but most importantly the swelling, heat and inflammation in my hands has nearly gone completely and I no longer have to take meds.

 

Following Jane's program is so easy, I know exactly how to build every meal now and I feeling totally equipped to continue this way of life.

 

Jane is so incredibly helpful; I feel so grateful to her that she has helped me and opened my eyes to a whole new way of thinking.

 

I have started weight training along with my other activities and am enjoying this and seeing small progress.

 

The closed Facebook group is also great as we can share ideas, concerns, ask questions from other ladies it is a wonderful support.

 

I will continue to be part of Jane's program moving forward into the NY as I want to be able to continue to achieve my goals, support others beginning their journey and spread the word.

 

Jane is so approachable, she always finds a solution, she is a wealth of tried and tested measures, and she gets results.

How did you feel before you began working with Jane Macgregor Health & Wellness? What were the biggest issues you were facing?

 

Before I began working with Jane, I had some health issues which lead to having a hysterectomy and a large dose of iron supplements. I was overweight, bloated and feeling uncomfortable with myself. My wardrobe of clothes were tight. I got back to regular exercise classes along with my own healthy eating... This worked before however I believe age is now a factor along with being overindulgent at weekends of rich foods and alcohol. My lifestyle needed to change.

 

What aspects of the coaching program were most helpful in achieving your health goals?

 

Amazingly I have learnt so much about food. Good and bad. The effects it can have on our bodies and health. Being guided on my new grocery list and receiving menus for each day. Knowing Jane was there to help with any struggles or questions along with having a weekly check in aided my focus.

The enthusiasm Jane has is an inspiration along with her bubbly personality, it gave me the motivation to become successful in my new journey.

 

How did Jane support you in overcoming any obstacles or setbacks you encountered during your journey?

 

I didn't endure any setbacks. My only obstacles were using new ingredients for recipes and learning new techniques within my cooking. Snacks, especially for my husband whom was on this journey with me. There are many indulgent treats and Jane guided me on what and where to find these new products.

In what ways did your health and wellbeing improve as a result of your coaching sessions?

 

Tremendously, within the first week I felt less bloated and was on a good start of losing the pounds.  At this point I was very focused with my daily meals and exercise regime.

 

Were there any specific lifestyle changes, dietary modifications, or exercise routines that you found particularly effective or enjoyable?

 

Throughout this journey I did have lots of travel. Being with our family, weekends away with friends. One sudden trip home which was an emotionally sad journey. Jane was there throughout to guide on strategies for keeping me on the plan. Exercise did take a back seat on many of these occasions however I did keep myself active within many chores and getting the steps in.

 

How would you describe the communication and support provided by Jane? Did you feel heard and understood throughout the coaching process?

 

Absolutely, Jane was on hand at any time. Having an empathetic ear when needed along with giving motivation and praise throughout my journey.

 

Did you achieve the goals you initially set out to accomplish? If so, please describe your achievements.

 

I did. I had set a goal and smashed it. My focus was for a trip back home, my niece was getting married and the dress that I had hanging up for the duration of time now fits perfectly. One of Jane's encouraging focuses was to get an item of clothing that you want to fit into. I have reached my goal weight and have lost the inches. Feeling positive to set a new goal for losing a few more pounds and maintaining my new lifestyle of healthy eating and exercise regime.

 

If you were to recommend Jane Macgregor Health and Wellness to a friend, what would you say?

 

A lady that will help change your life emotionally and physically. Jane has all the tools and personality to make this change easy.

It's been an absolute pleasure in sharing this journey with a lady that has inspired me to become a healthier person. Life is for living and you want to be the happiest version of yourself to enjoy all that it brings to you.
