Gerda Bruwer is a qualified Eating Psychology & Nutrition Coach, who is now adding Real Meal Trained, Certified Banting Coach (CBC) to her extensive resume.
Let's face it, when you have a supportive team on your Banting journey, it makes it easier to be successful. Real Meal Revolution wants to help you by filling your team with fellow Banters and CBCs, like Gerda Bruwer.
Gerda offers up the following “banter” on her personal Banting journey:
"The way we imagine the body is the foundation for how it responds physiologically. This in turn will determine our relationship with food, and the kind of body we create. Like many women, I lived this love-hate relationship with food and myself throughout most of my life.
As qualified Eating Psychology & Nutrition Coach, my life’s work was born out of my personal journey of healing my own relationship with food and emotional self first. It does not matter how our weight struggles play out. What we eat is only half the story. The other half is who we are as eaters.”
"There is a powerful and intimate connection between women and food. Through my group meetings, we get to the root cause of our weight problems with a holistic understanding that honours all aspects of who we are as eaters: body, mind, heart and soul.
I use body-mind connection, eating psychology, nutrition, metaphysics, the subconscious mind, energy psychology, and the latest from neuroscience to heal the core compulsion of struggle, so you can trust your body again. At my meetings, you will learn how I overcame my own body, weight and emotional issues, and to use these skills and tools for your own benefit."
To many of us, achieving happiness in our appearance is only part of our Banting journey. Gerda’s approach is about weight and its loss in a self-loving, sustainable way. We’ve got to heal the relationship between body-mind-spirit first. It’s not only about physical transformation, but emotional and mental transformation as well.
