Firstly, it is not a diet. In fact, its just about as far away from a conventional diet, as you could possibly get.
If, however, you want to lose maximum weight, consistently and permanently, without being on a restrictive weight loss plan, I think you might be surprised by what I have to say.
Why, call it a diet in the first place then ?
If I hadn't, you would never have found it on a search engine. Even I, have to conform, occasionally.
I am not the one to tell you, or anyone else that they should lose weight to be healthy. There are plenty of people who carry excess weight who are healthier than those who are thin. Some people are not healthy just because they are thin. When I weighed 7.5 stone 10 years ago, it was because I was very ill. When I weighed 15 stone, 5 months prior to that, I looked well, but I had chronic inflammation throughout my body, terrible digestive problems and no energy. Looks are deceiving. I didn't eat excessively, in fact, I ate what conventional medicine calls, a very healthy diet, but for me personally, it was just the opposite. It was making me extremely ill, and the nutritionists at the hospital thought my diet was perfect.
This is where the rabbit hole, gets deeper. It is the steepest learning curve I have ever experienced. Its not always what you are taught, or learn from books, or other people; its what you go through first hand, something no one else can replicate, understand fully, or take away from you. Your uniqueness. That is the essence of the bio-indi solution - The simple fact that 'Everybody's different.'
If you decide to do The Bio-Indi program, I want you to get clear on your 'why?'
Its so important to know exactly why you want to lose weight. Please make sure that you are doing this for you, not someone else's idea, about the version of you that they want. Love is not negotiable, it just is. Neither is putting your life on hold. So someone saying, ' I'll do this when I'm slim', or ' I'll love you when you're slim', is just not something I, or anyone else wants to hear. I've been there though, so if this is you, I know the place you're at, and I can help, in more ways than you think possible. Whatever your reason; lets talk about it and come up with a workable plan that fits into a busy schedule and leads to a permanent solution.
Lets get one thing straight though, right now. Confidence, I mean, real confidence, comes from within, not without. Losing weight will not give you that. Real confidence comes from the heart.
Le Coeur, French for heart, gives us courage ; coeur rage. Heart Rage. Standing in your integrity and speaking your truth, whether people like it or not. Do not forget, that beauty does not equate to confidence. There are scores of beautiful, thin women out there, with incredibly low self esteem, even when they appear confident. Who are we to judge anyone ? We have no idea how anyone feels at any given moment. We are not walking and have not walked, in their shoes. We have no idea about the crosses that they may be silently and smilingly, bearing. Remember that.
We are all different. Bodies, minds, spirits, souls. We all handle things differently. Sometimes, we need a bit of help, from someone who knows what they are going through and has the answers.
So...here's the thing; There are thousands of women out here, thin, curvy, extra curvy, who feel ok in their respective bodies and millions, who don't. This is caused by our culture, the media, pornographic representations of women, the history of patriarchy etc.
Its a sad, but true, fact of life for both women... and indeed men too, and everyone else in between these two criteria, in today's society. It begins in childhood, we suffer it with or without complaint. These are the facts. You have a choice - do nothing and accept it as it is, or change it.
I would be very interested to hear your views on how YOU PERSONALLY could help, or would like to help, change this. Please message me. I love solidarity.
Refuse to be a victim. Do not make this, your story, and if it is, change it.I can show you how.
So, if you still want to lose weight, and I do not mean lose the weight then put it all back on. I am talking about understanding, why you have put weight on. I'm not talking about calories in, calories out, because I, for one, know that is absolute bullshit. If it were true, I, would be like a house side and I am not. I am not talking about exercising like a maniac either, or getting a gym membership.
If you want to lose weight permanently, understanding exactly how your body deals with the food that you eat, so that you can kiss goodbye to dieting for good and feel totally in harmony with your own mind and body, then you might want to read on.
I do not advocate those individuals or organisations that like you to keep rinsing and repeating their weight loss strategies in order to keep you coming back for more. I won't name names here, it's not my style, but you know the ones I'm talking about. Its a great money spinner, but what lie isn't ?
I want you to do this for yourself, once and for all. When you get to know me better, which I hope you do, you will know without any doubt, that I walk my talk. I am not a sheep. I lead by example. I do what I believe in. I do not live in a conventional way at all. I am on the fringe. I home educated my daughter. I have worked for myself ever since I kicked antidepressants on the head for good and took my life back. I live outside the mainframe. I chose the red pill and boy did The Matrix and C S Lewis get it right, the rabbit hole, goes very deep indeed.
The Bio-Indi solution, is is a non restrictive eating plan for maximum, permanent weight loss and optimum health. If it wasn't, I would not be sitting here now typing this. Let me tell you something...Twenty years ago, if you had looked into a crystal ball and told me this is what my future held - teaching people how to lose weight - I would have laughed in your face. Seriously.
If you are looking at this site, you have probably felt like me. Disillusioned. Fed up. Confused by all the conflicting information. Overwhelmed and feeling like giving up hope of any kind of solution to your problem of not being able to lose the weight and keep it off. They call it yoyo dieting nowadays - great description but no prescription.
You have insane sugar cravings, bread cravings, pasta, rice, potato cravings. Whatever....just cravings. You're sick of feeling hungry, sick of salads, sick of tasteless food, bland food, vegetables that taste of less than nothing. I was too. If I gave in to the cravings, I'd just pig out, binge without knowing why, then feel hideously guilty, even eating in secret, hiding away to wolf biscuits down feeling ashamed and miserable.
I became very depressed, but couldn't talk to anyone about it. I don't know why, I just couldn't, in the same way that you wouldn't want to discuss a sexually transmitted disease with anyone, it felt that bad.
There were times when I just didn't know what to do next.
If I went to the doctor, they just prescribed antidepressants and also gave me long term antibiotics for my acne. What a card to play!
I became so depressed. Not just about the weight thing, but everything. I planned a perfect suicide, only to be rescued by a fluke visitor, totally out of the blue, returning the generator he had borrowed a month or so previous, to my narrow boat. ( At 21 I lived on 'Madrugada', my narrow boat ) I was locked inside, unconscious after drinking half a bottle of whiskey and two bottles of antidepressants, several times the lethal dose. It was not pretty. After a lot of arguments and a few years, of what I can only describe as a living hell, not just for me, but our entire family; I was admitted as an in patient for two years and an outpatient for seven more. It was awful. What I realize now, but didn't then, was the damage that I had done by starving myself. The damage I was still doing, to my body and brain, was causing the depression. No one ever asked me about my diet. Ever.
To cut a long story short, I have spent a lifetime looking for answers, seeking the truth. I spent years learning, researching, experimenting on myself, my family and willing friends. I qualified at The Institute of Integrative Nutrition and began specializing as a holistic health and weight loss expert, but even then I didn't have the last piece of the jigsaw, that I was looking for.
Some people may read this and laugh.
OK, you go ahead. Desperate people are funny, aren't they ? Like people you see begging in doorways and you walk right past them. Just drunks, druggies, not worth even casting a cursory glance at. What you don't know is what they have suffered, what they have lost, who they have lost, what they've fought in pointless wars abroad, to come home to nothing. Yeah, you go ahead and laugh. The way we feel is determined by what has happened in our lives. So many have sufferred sexual abuse, at home, in care, at school, at work, at the hands of those they married. Our lives shape us, twisting and turning us until we are sometimes so broken, we break into so many pieces, it feel like we can never be put back together again. When we fail to do something, we blame ourselves, or other people, or society, or the goverment. It doesn't matter where the blame lies. To move past it, we have to accept things as they are in this moment, in order to move beyond them, and we can. Some people can do it on their own, others need help, some need more help than others. It depends how they got to where they are now. You can feel really alone with it. I know.
People get desperate for very different reasons. In anorexics and bulimics it can be forms of abuse or control issues. Not always though. It goes very, very deep and we can eventually lose sight of the reason ourselves. Our society puts huge pressures on us all, especially the young and the old. Our coping mechanisms are complex and varied. We are all unique. We cope in the best way we can. Our society is not geared to give us space to heal, not until its nearly too late.
Life, despite all our mod cons and conveniences, is not easy to navigate, and when the waters get unbearably rough, where do you go ? Who do you confide in ? Will they judge you ? Will they believe you ? Not being understood, not being believed, are two of the worst things in the world, as is injustice. Who is out there, for these people, often on the fringes of society ? Who will listen and hold a safe space to talk, unburden? I do understand, believe me.
It wasn't until I began digging deeper, studying peer reviewed scientific journals that highlighted decades worth of research that will take 20 years to filter into main stream medicine, that I had a breakthrough.
It came to me when I was flying my Harris Hawk, Musket, at the farm. Like Einstein, said, most of his ideas didn't come through his education, they came intuitively, and it was the same for me. It is an ability I have and have honed considerably over the years and has stood me well. I get ideas when I move..not when I'm sitting at a desk.
I put my idea into action and I began to lose weight consistently, would reach a plateau, break it and continue, reach another, break it and then finally... I hit my ideal weight...no one else's idea of it. MINE. A weight that I, was entirely happy with, feeling energized, satisfied, really happy and alive. Finally, the person looking back at me in the mirror, felt like me. Not just because I was thin, but because I felt comfortable in my own skin, happy in myself, confident and courageous and I was eventually, doing what I was born to do. EVERYTHING WAS RIGHT. It was like coming home from a long and arduous journey, and I was eating plenty of extremely tasty food, sometimes on two plates! I loved my food, still do, and I felt amazing, for the first time in my life, I felt happy, just being me. That in itself was a revelation.Those last few words are incredibly important, not just to me personally, but to us all. Never forget though, its not just food that nourishes us, its everything we say, do, feel, see, touch. Its what surrounds us too.
I realized many things during this extraordinary life journey, that I will go into later, but the main one, is that we are all unique - from our body chemistry to our life experiences- so the best approach to weight management of any kind, is to treat everyone as individuals. It finally made sense; why all one - size- fits- all -diets NEVER WORKED, because everybody's different!
Lets face it, its something to celebrate. I cannot bear people who want to pigeon hole us, put us in a category.
We are human beings, for goodness sake, not items in an Argos catalog.
Stepping into your own power, claiming your integrity and feeling completely balanced,
is extremely exhilarating.

The Bio-Indi Dieting Solution is for anyone, any age, but especially for those in midlife, whose waistline has disappeared with their confidence, never to be seen again.
It's for people who know why they want to lose weight, and who are clear on what they want to achieve.
You don't set out on a journey without knowing the destination, right ? That would be madness.
Getting clear, is one of the keys that unlocks the door. Its not the answer though. It is the person who holds the key, that opens the door, and we are all different. Crikey, its just like Smeagol and his precious! Once you understand this, there will be, no stopping you. I will explain this massive scientific secret of the universe, in simple terms, so you can crack this sucker, just like I did.
I feel extremely privileged now, intensely grateful, that my journey has brought me to the point, where I feel I can share my gifts, and finally do some good. I appreciate that trust is earned, but I am confident that I can deliver what I have set out to do. That confidence, however, has taken half a lifetime to forge. The process, I can only describe, as agonizing.
Just so you know. I worked in the feed trade for 6 years, and what an eye opener that was. My first glimpse of the animal industry. I could not believe what I was seeing.
I've worked in places with aircraft hangars filled with fertilizer, fungicides, insecticides and pesticides, that we put on the soil, that our food comes out of; labelled as highly toxic poison.
I've seen the plight of the farmers too. You will be amazed at the restrictions and penalties that are placed on them, how they are policed, how they can't even put their own grain on their own land. How red tape is forcing them out, as it is, all of us; gradually, almost imperceptibly, slowly but surely, strangling us, like some giant boa-constrictor.
I studied at the Institute of integrative nutrition and gained my degree, but beyond the facts and figures of my background, I have a real, solid, understanding of dieting and the struggle weight loss presents. I have personally suffered from the psychological and physical damage that often parallels weight loss struggles. I do what I do, not only because I'm determined to find the solutions that people are so desperately seeking, but also to help you figure out the easiest and quickest way, to make them work, for each and every, bio individual, one of you. Optimum health for all, is my ultimate goal. One person at a time, if necessary.
I'm incredibly passionate about my work and have written a book about why we need The Bio-Indi Dieting Solution and how I discovered it. I explain why your inability to lose weight, is not an unsolvable problem, but a symptom of our time. Fat is neither good or bad - its just a result. Based on cutting edge science and my own incredible life experiences, this book focuses on the biggest challenges, standing in the way of the health, of every single one of us.
My own true path to health, was anything but easy; suffering for many years with eating disorders, anxiety, severe depression and crippling self esteem issues and then finally, lymes disease, contracted when nursing a very poorly fox. Now, however, I can honestly say, I am free of all struggles, mental, physical and emotional. I hope you will join me in freeing yourself, and finding your very own, true path back to optimum health and your perfect weight. Together, we can put the lid on the coffin of weight gain, for good.
