“Catherine’s down to earth and genuine nature was evident and we would have her back any day!”

Stephen Jacques from legal firm Mallesons agreed.

“Catherine was a fantastic speaker and we had our highest turnout ever and received a lot of excellent feedback,” he said.

“People felt she was very real and provided useful tips and suggestions on our to improve diet and general wellbeing.

“She was entertaining and to the point and satisfied a very ‘demanding’ audience.”

Catherine is also a well known writer.

“I have written heaps of articles for magazines and newspapers including Women’s Weekly, Who, Healthy Food Guide, Prevention and New Idea,” she said.

“I’ve served as a nutrition editor for a couple of start-up magazines such as Super Food Ideas and Table Magazine.

“I’ve also written over 3, 000 articles on just about every aspect of healthy eating but mainly focussing on staying slim, women’s health issues such as iron, calcium and menopause, and what’s in that food.

Catherine also promotes a healthy lifestyle.

“I like to practice yoga for flexibility, Tai Chi so I sleep well and pilates for my posture,” she said.

“I’ve also studied meditation under western doctors as well as with Buddhist monks.”
