    Sallyanne is a Blue Mountains based practitioner and teacher who focuses on Eating for You. “At my talks, I hear many stories about how confusing healthy eating has become – there is always new research and new ‘diets’ promising all sorts of cures and results. Mindful eating and living focuses your attention on why, what, how, and when you eat and helps you to identify choices that will improve your overall health and wellbeing.” Sallyanne Pisk

    The aim of the talk for Women’s Health Week is to share why diets don’t work and why it is not your fault.

    • Learn the secret to changing your eating habits for good, and it is not a diet.
    • Remove the confusion and overwhelm about what to eat without focusing on food or the number on the scales.
    • Be empowered to move forward with your knowledge of what nourishes you and confidently do it with ease.
