What is zest4life about?

Learn to balance your blood sugar for weight loss & energy

Aileen will show you how to live life with zest as part of your everyday life.  The zest4life approach to nutrition is firmly grounded in learning how your body works and how to balance your blood sugar for fast weight loss and energy improvement. You will follow Patrick Holford’s low Glycemic Load diet which has consistently out-performed other eating plans for both health improvements and weight loss, as well as other benefits such as energy, mood, stress and concentration

Learn to avoid and manage cravings

Once you know the basics of good nutrition, you will be empowered to make the best choices for yourself and your family based on how you feel, not solely on how much weight you lose.  Many weight loss programmes lead to cravings and lowered energy, which is often why they fail. Learn how to eat the way you are designed, under the guidance of a registered nutritional therapist and coach and see for yourself how good you can feel. zest4life really is much more than just weight loss.

Receive expert motivation, encouragement and support?

Have you experienced fluctuating levels of motivation? Have you started things with enthusiasm, only to lose it quickly and go back to your old ways, disappointed and resigned?

The team zest4life has spent 8 years researching the specialist area of motivational coaching in relation to changing eating habits to improve health and lose weight. What we have learned is that motivational coaching is the magic ingredient without which, long-term sustainable results are incredibly challenging.

We are passionate about your health!

At zest4life  we are passionate about making a real difference to your life through good food, good education and the right support to get you motivated to take control of your health and get the body you want.

Try it for yourself…you have nothing to lose but excess weight and poor health, and everything to gain from reaching the goals you set for yourself and enjoying the confidence and freedom this gives you.

zest4life – much more than just weight loss…

This is what some zest4life clients had to say following their programme…

“The zest4life  programme has been amazing, I love eating this way and have seen my energy soar, the weight just dropped off my face and my body changed shape, I no longer looked or felt bloated or puffy and people commented that my skin looked fantastic too“. Tina

“I have never eaten so well and had such a variety of food…EVER. The best bit is that I have lost the excess weight easily and I actually feel better than I have done in maybe the past twenty years. I do believe that the help & encouragement plus the interaction with the others in the class have helped enormously. We have learnt so much about nutrition, exercise and lifestyle changes as well as dieting – and had such fun while doing so”. Lorraine

“My energy levels have quadrupled.  Everybody comments positively about how I look … but most of all, I feel good about myself once again”.  Donna

zest4life is all based on being positive not punitive around food.  Friends and colleagues have all noticed a difference in my body shape, energy, mood and skin and have asked me my secret.  All I can say is give this a go”. Kit

“This is a brilliant way to feel healthier and more energetic whilst losing weight at the same time: it is a win win situation!” Amanda

” I am genuinely surprised at how fantastic I feel. With a small baby it’s inevitable to be tired but I still feel energised, I feel satisfied and confident and in control of my food!” Leila

zest4life really helped me to control menopausal problems. Hot flushes went down immediately the moment I started to follow zest4life guidelines.” Liz

“I have lost 7 lbs and feel much healthier. Feel in control of my eating and how to be healthy now. Can’t bear sweet things anymore!” Tara



Do I have to buy food replacement packs?
No, the food you are encouraged to eat is fresh, natural wholefoods; a way of eating for life and one that the whole family can eat & enjoy!

How much weight can I expect to lose?
Typically clients lose 1 to 2lb per week. This is a safe and sustainable level. Losing more than this can be water loss or lean tissue.

Do I have to count calories?
No, not with the low GL diet. Calories have their place, but do not play a part in the zest4life programmes.

Do I need to measure or weigh my food?
This is useful in the first couple of weeks until you are familiar with the quantities. However, you only need to focus on the carbohydrate portion of any meal?

What is GL?
GL stands for glycaemic load. This accounts for the amount of sugar released from carbohydrates and the speed at which it raises your blood sugar. This is explained fully in the course.

Will I feel hungry on the low GL diet?
No! You will be encouraged to eat regularly during the day. In fact you may find you eat more than you have been doing. Some even find it difficult to eat all the food recommended!

How do I know I am eating the right foods?
You are encouraged to submit a food diary to your coach on a weekly basis to receive personal feedback. Your coach will guide you and support you in making the best choices for you.

Is it suitable for vegetarians?
Yes, very much so. This eating plan can be adjusted to suit all sorts of special diets including vegan, gluten and dairy-free, and for those with food allergies. Just let your coach know if you have a special diet requirement and they will help to put your diet plan together.

Is it suitable for children?
Although we wouldn’t recommend putting children on a diet without first speaking to your doctor, the menu and recipes are suitable for everyone. The online programmes are not intended for, nor targeted at children.

I am diabetic. Is it suitable for me?
Absolutely. However, please speak to your doctor and be prepared to check you blood sugar levels before and after meals, as you may need to adjust your medication. The low GL diet is particularly useful in balancing blood sugar for those with insulin.

Message from Aileen

Don’t fear this is a mountain that’s too hard to climb – I once felt that way too, but one simple step changed everything for me and put me on the path that enabled me to become my radiant best, and it can do the same for you too. I’d love to help you.”
