“Since seeing Carol I have realised what a massive impact food and drink have on my wellbeing both mental and physical.  She is so supportive and encouraging. I am so pleased that I made that first appointment.  She certainly knows her stuff”

“Carol’s Healthy Eating Sessions were the catalyst for feeling so much better about myself.

Very slowly over 20/30 years my weight had crept upwards to 14st. With damage to one ankle and one knee I knew less weight would help. Inspired by the London 2012 Olympics I wanted to feel fit and healthy, as I did in my 20’s, even though I was heading towards 60.

Now 3 years later with a wealth of information and support from Carol and the Group, I keep my weight between 11 & 11st 7lbs. I have more energy, less migraine and my joints are much improved.

I still attend the Healthy Eating Sessions, always learning something new and staying focused on caring for my body”

“I have been a patient of Carol for a number of years. Over this time I have been educated by her and altered the way that I relate to food. My eating habits have been totally changed. I am now in control of blood sugar levels or if not, understand the reason for the increased stress levels.”

“I have used Carol twice, the first time with my daughter who was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease at the age of 18. We consulted Carol having decided to adopt Professor Hunters diet to see if that would help her  in place of the unpleasant medications that she was on. We were both impressed with firstly, her vast knowledge of the subject and secondly her sheer practicality – what began as a huge list of every food my daughter would like to eat being forbidden, became, after an hour of Carols calm and sensible advice, a diet plan that worked for my daughter and was easy to follow.  I am thrilled to say that five years on, my daughter has been free of Crohns symptoms since adopting the diet and has just commenced re-introducing foods.

The second time was on my own behalf, a significant birthday and a myriad of niggling health issues combined with a Dr’s instruction to start taking supplements found me back at her door. Again, everything that she told me made perfect sense. Seven weeks into the new lifestyle my health has improved vastly. I have lost weight and am full of energy. I cannot thank her enough!”

“Having spent the last 30 years battling with my weight after the birth of my first child, having high blood pressure, being diagnosed with Coeliac Disease and to top it off with type 2 Diabetes, I felt that I was going to spend the rest of my life on loads of medication. I can’t say I felt well either, as I was always tired, lethargic and finding it hard to cope with everyday things.

I had a wakeup call whilst on holiday, when I woke at 3am one morning feeling absolutely dreadful (through too much wine, I must admit) so I decided that moment that I needed to change my lifestyle. I was a 58 year old grandmother with twin grandchildren on the way, and I knew that I wanted to live to see them grow up!

From then on I gave up drinking alcohol and thought I needed to concentrate on my eating. My main concern was to get my blood sugar down, as I was getting put on more drugs to treat the diabetes and I‘d been on many drugs for high blood pressure already.

Through a very good friend who had started seeing Carol, I decided to go on a one to one visit to see if she could help me! The first thing Carol said to me was “when you were diagnosed with Coeliac Disease, what did you do?” my reply was “I stopped eating anything with gluten in it.” Well she said “you are diabetic, you don’t eat sugar!” Wow, what a statement, I remember thinking to myself that everybody I knew who were diabetic still ate sugar things sometimes, so why!

I did eat reasonable healthily, as in fresh food, fruit and veg, but we eat later in the evenings and Carol explained that I needed to cut out the heavy carbs at night, as these were turned into sugar and stored as fat!! Also I needed to keep a food diary to realise what and when I was eating, so that I could recognise where I might be going wrong, if necessary.

This was the beginning of a complete new challenge to me, just like being diagnosed as Coeliac, and not having gluten,  I had to apply the same to the sugar statement!

From then on, I have not looked back. I began to feel so much better in myself. People noticed the change in me and the weight just gradually seemed to fall off. I have lost 2 stone in the last 18 months and I feel amazing. I am very conscious of what I put in my body and I challenge myself with new ways to make food exciting as well as healthy.

I am on just a small amount of medication now, as the weight loss has regulated the way my body now copes. I can honestly say that visiting Carol has been the best thing that I have done, as she made me realise so much more how food can affect the way you feel. She is so interesting to talk to and seems able to explain about foods in an understandable way.

I now have 4 grandchildren and enjoy looking after them very much. I don’t think I would have coped so well if I hadn’t felt better. I am still trying out new recipes, which is enjoyable, and am finding out much more what I can eat without it affecting my blood sugar levels.

I will never go back to my bad eating habits as I enjoy the way I feel now much more!

I have a lot to be grateful to Carol for, for getting me on the right track. Many thanks Carol.”

After about 15 years of visiting doctors about my aches and pains, bloating, feeling exhausted and generally feeling unwell. Nothing was ever conclusive so a daily intake of paracetamol or Ibuprofen it was. I tried many a diet but nothing worked  I was even taking as I call them my ‘fat tablets’ prescribed by my doctor to help shift the weight but they stopped working for me after about 2 years.

Enough was enough I felt so fed up with unable to lose any weight after gaining more last year after a total hysterectomy and having to deal with an underactive thyroid for 15 years.

I then after some research decided to contact Carol Champion for help. I met with Carol in April this year and she has completely changed my life after educating me on how certain food types affect the body.

Although I’ve always eaten healthily I  could never understand why my weight would not budge. Carol then provided me with a meal plan. After religiously sticking to this I started losing weight and seeing results. My energy levels started to rise, aches and pains and bloating diminished. I started to feel amazing and more confident in myself.

I have absolutely loved this journey and realise the food choices that I have adapted to has definitely been my medicine. Amazingly I have not needed to take any tablets for pain relief since March this year which has been a revelation.

I continue to eat the right foods and reap the benefits of:

better skin

restful sleep

no aches or pains

no more bloating

Rise in energy levels

A reduction in medication for thyroid and HRT

 

And best of all over 2 stone in weight!

I can’t thank Carol enough,she has guided me through this with great explanation and I feel I have my life back on track and in control of my weight

Thank you Carol!

I approached Carol after travelling a long road to nowhere with doctors, who had spent nearly a year trying to figure out why I was permanently suffering with being covered in hives and oedema. I felt I was having an allergic type reaction to something, which was affecting my whole body and causing my face to swell up intermittently. Not only did this leave me exhausted and frightened but it was affecting my sleep (being constantly itchy), my work and my stress levels. I had been put on steroids and a hefty dose of of anti histamines which made little difference to my symptoms. The drs basically refused to believe it was an allergy or, as I suspected after much research, a food reaction, but I needed to find a cause as I wanted to come off the medication in order to conceive. After banging my head against a brick wall for so long, I finally contacted Carol, who had previously been recommended by friends and colleagues. Carol quickly deduced that I was having a reaction to food due to intolerance and , after amending my diet under her guidance, and coming off my (non effective) medication, my symptoms all but disappeared in a few weeks. Talk about relief! After some tests and further review, my diet was tweaked some more and all my symptoms vanished. We then concentrated on getting me healthy again and started some prenatal dietry supplements. I was finally able to safely start a family. 5 years on, we have a beautiful daughter and I have no more symptoms. I honestly don’t know how I would have coped without her advice. Thanks again xx eternally grateful

“I have been a client of Carol’s for almost 16 years, having first attended a detox course followed by a weight-loss course.  Each was well-executed, easy to commit to and made a positive effect on my well-being, motivating me to consult with Carol privately.  My family and I have continued to do so ever since for a wide range of conditions including those affecting menstruation, digestion, weight, stress, allergies, menopause, vegetarian and vegan diet.

From the outset I have always found Carol to be extremely approachable, knowledgeable, professional and realistic about the dietary changes she recommends.  The combination of supplements supporting recommended dietary changes has, unquestionably, led to an improvement in our well-being.”

Jan from St Martins

When I first went to Carol I had been suffering from stomach/bowel issues for a number of years. Following the results of some simple tests Carol identified that I was intolerant to a number of different foods. Following this I altered my diet to eliminate these foods and also took various supplements to rebalance my digestive system. 

6 months later I have had no recurrence of the stomach and bowel issues I had previously been suffering from. We have identified the problem food and I am now reintroducing the other foods in a controlled manner. My eating is healthier. This has not been difficult as rather than having a special diet it has predominantly been down to eating sensibly and the items being cut out have been easy to cut out. Added to this I have lost over 2 stone in weight and I am feeling a lot healthier with better energy levels. Thank you Carol for everything you have done for me.

“My recent life can be described in two parts:- BC – Before Carol AC – After Carol

BC
About 18 months ago, after a friend had been going to Carol’s Weight Loss Class, I thought I would join. Why? I didn’t need to lose a lot of weight but my diet was dreadful – no breakfast, no lunch and a ready meal for supper! I have an autoimmune disease, felt lethargic, no joy in food or life. Couldn’t be bothered!
 
AC
And now?  Three meals a day, a renewed interest in food, cooking and reading recipe books. I enjoy being in the kitchen, shopping for good food, fruit and vegetables.
I have more energy, enthusiasm and enjoy being congratulated on how well I look.
Thank you Carol. Through you I have turned my life around!
 
AC
Amazing Carol”
