I’m Lyn Fernie and I help women eat, move and sleep for their hormones so that they can lose weight, and get their body, mind, and life back!
I meet so many women who struggle to lose weight, especially in their 40s, 50s, and 60s. Does this sound familiar?
- Diets you’ve used in the past are no longer working
- You’ve tried popular diets like keto and you gained weight
- You’re addicted to sugar and refined carbohydrates
- You exercise a lot but the weight isn’t shifting
- You find yourself more stressed and anxious than normal
- You struggle with energy and you have to drag yourself off the couch
- Sleep seems so elusive, nothing gives you a good 8 hours rest
- You’re irritable all the time and your relationships are suffering
- Your cycle has become irregular and you’re suffering really bad PMS
- You just don’t feel like yourself anymore
Believe me, I know exactly what this feels like, I’ve been there!
For years I followed all the conventional dietary guidelines in the hope I wouldn’t die at 50 of a heart attack like my Dad or end up living in a care home in my 60s with Dementia like my Mum. As a result, I ended up battling anorexia bulimia and binge eating for 25 years of my adult life.
When I was 37 I hit a wall; I could hardly get out of bed, each day was a struggle, my brain was foggy, my joints hurt and my periods went haywire. I had digestive problems, weight gain, a sore hard bloated belly, memory lapses, hot flashes all day every day, tingling teeth, acne worse than a teenager, heart racing, emotional outbursts and fits of rage .. the list goes on!
Countless specialists couldn’t work out what was wrong with me. I was diagnosed with early menopause, severe gluten intolerance, and multiple autoimmune conditions. Chronic fatigue ravaged my body and I struggled with my demanding corporate job.
I didn’t recognise myself anymore. All I knew was that I didn’t want to live like this anymore, I was desperate.
I made a decision that I wouldn’t accept this fate, this miserable existence. I learnt that I had messed up my hormones with all the diets, competitive sports and exercise, a stressful career and busy life. I spent months researching the right foods to support my cycle and my body, figured out what type of movement made my body sing and what made it want to crawl into a hole. I watched how stress took me back into that dark place, and left me drained and unable to function.
I finally put everything I had learnt together into a 5-step program of eating, movement, detox, stress management, and sleep. I used my program to rebuild my hormones and my health from the ground up.
Hand on heart I can now say that I feel better than I have in 20 years, maybe better than I’ve ever truly felt. I lost the weight and the belly, I wake full of energy. I power through my day, every day. I enjoy my food again and I’ve come to love the body that I’ve been blessed with.
Through my own journey, I discovered my true PURPOSE in life and I now work exclusively with women, helping them to balance their hormones, lose weight, and get their body, mind, and life back through my signature program “The Nourish Program”.
