I know how demoralising it is to feel like you’re in a never-ending battle with food. You love it, you hate it. You try this diet, then that way of eating. Nothing quite sticks.

The issue here isn't really about what you’re eating. It’s about why you keep eating foods that don’t serve you, over and over again, and then feeling rubbish about yourself.

I’m guessing that you’re reading this because you know that you need to try something different. Trying to overcome your emotional eating by yourself isn’t working.

  • You want strong self-control around food.
  • You want to understand the roots of your negative relationship with food.
  • You want to break unhealthy eating habits.
  • You want to feel healthy and vibrant, and you know that your eating habits are holding you back.
  • You want more from your life but feel tired and like you’re running on empty a lot of the time.
  • You wish you looked and felt lighter, younger and more confident.
  • You crave clarity and emotional balance.

You are fed up of struggling with this

You’ve most likely been trying to get a handle on your emotional eating for years but keep finding yourself going round in circles. That horrible feeling of ‘failing again’ and letting yourself down keeps coming round.

You worry that you don’t have the discipline or commitment to do what needs to be done to get over your frustrating relationship with food. It affects your confidence and you don’t feel good about the extra weight you're carrying and the rubbish you end up eating, even when you know better.

You feel so stuck

You keep trying different ways of improving your eating habits and losing weight, but nothing seems to stick. You think if you keep pushing yourself then it will eventually work out. But… on some level you know that’s not true because you keep coming across the same sticking points again and again.

You know, deep down, that there has to be a better way.

Alison Finn
"I found the support calls more helpful and powerful than I imagined they would be. The reflection from Saskia and others greatly deepened the experience."

 

"The programme increased my awareness of my eating patterns and gave me gentle ways to change them for the better. I loved having the menu plans and shopping lists. It gave a structure to support the changes I wanted to make. It gave me something to keep coming back to if I 'wandered'!

The programme achieved for me what I wanted; to come off sugar. As anyone knows who has or has had an addiction to sugar this is no mean task!  It costs a lot of money to be sick and sugar is the quickest way to getting sick!  How can such things be valued in financial terms!"

Alison Finn, Colonic Hydrotherapist

 

You always mean to eat better, but you end up last on the list of your priorities

Because you feel shame around your relationship with food, asking for help may well feel embarrassing. It’s likely that on some level you feel like you don’t deserve help. You think that you should be strong enough to do it on your own.

The idea of spending money on this probably feels indulgent because you think it’s better invested elsewhere; in your kids, your business, in saving for a rainy day. But you also believe in living healthily. You want to feel good about yourself and you don’t want to feel like a fraud.  You want to be an inspiration to others.

What’s missing in your life is having the non-judgmental and loving support that will help you understand your emotional eating so that you can make the changes you know need to happen. It would be so empowering to have someone loving and supportive on YOUR side, who understands the roller coaster you're on around food.  You know that being able to change this pattern would be life-changing, not just for you but for those around you too.

  • You want to feel full of energy and vitality, not drained and exhausted.
  • You want to be proud of the way you look. You’re fed up of looking in the mirror and feeling demoralised by what’s happening to your body and your face as you get older.
  • You want to have a healthy relationship with food, so you eat what you know is good for you and can say no to all the rubbish.
  • The hardest thing for you is that you want to feel in control of your eating and your life, but you struggle to achieve it on an almost daily basis.

Just imagine for a moment...

Imagine you had the mental and emotional space to start exploring what it’s like to be in control of your comfort eating, rather than having it run away with you.

Imagine you had a weekly sacred space where you felt safe enough to be nurtured and challenged to be the very best of yourself.

Imagine allowing yourself to get support from someone who really cares about you and has an objectivity and clarity that no-one else can give you.

Imagine being immersed in a loving community of self-aware women who understand what it's like to struggle with your food choices.

Imagine seeing yourself as your best asset and therefore believing 100% that it’s ok to invest in support to become your very best.

Just imagine all that for a moment.  

Bethan Stritton
"I have shifted years of bad eating patterns and feel as though I am truly honouring the skin I'm in."

 

"Before, I was tired, sluggish and had little energy. I slept heavily and found it hard to get up in the mornings. When I told people I was doing the programme, most would say "I could never eat just raw food."  Yet the food was so delicious and it was so exciting to be making brand new recipes that MADE ME FEEL FABULOUS, no will power was required at all.  The accountability was probably the best part of it.  I feel transformed. I would recommend it to everyone."

Bethan Stritton, Artist and Author www.bethanstritton.com

 

This programme is your opportunity to experience the amazing benefits of a high raw menu with emotional support and tools to help you reap the rewards of eating in this self-loving way.

Beth Stanley
"The programme has helped me to understand my patterns around food and the emotional connections. Also how my hormones affect my eating."

 

"I enjoyed the Facebook group and the opportunity to share the experience with others. The calls helped me stay on track and it was good for me to have to talk about celebration and pamper treats as I would have missed this out left to my own devices.

It was worth the money as at the end of it I feel confident to continue in my journey with clean healthy eating and have relaxed the rules around needing to be completely raw all the time."

 

Beth Stanley, Coach

 Answers to questions you might have …

“I’m away on holiday during the programme. Can I still do it?” 

This programme is predominantly about helping you to overcome your emotional eating habits through looking at your psychology and relationship to food. Eating a clean, high raw diet helps boost your emotional confidence and gives you greater mental clarity, which helps with the self-discovery aspect of the programme. It is not, however, essential to follow the menus all the time. If you are away on holiday during the programme I would recommend that you eat as cleanly as you can whilst practicing self-love if you deviate from the clean eating or drink a few glasses of wine. This programme is not about rigidity like most diets, it’s about learning to be kind and gentle with yourself no matter what you eat. By learning to do this you naturally make healthier and more self-loving choices.

 

“Will it take up lots of time? I’m already really busy!” 

The menus and shopping lists are designed to make this programme easy and fun. Raw Freedom recipes have been created by a busy women (Saskia!) for other busy women. They are predominantly quick to make with easy-to-find-ingredients. The first two weeks you’ll be learning a few new preparation techniques but your meals won’t take any longer than making a homemade cooked meal, and often your raw food meals will be quite a lot quicker to make!  Evenings will be your best time for getting prepared for the following day’s recipes and you can prepare your lunch to take to work or get your breakfast ready in advance then.

 

“What kitchen equipment do I need?” 

All you need is a knife, a chopping board and a hand blender. If you have a high speed blender, the recipes will be even easier and quicker!

 

"I'm away from home and have social events already booked during the programme dates.  Does that mean I won't be able to follow the programme properly?"

This programme is about healthy eating for real life.  During the programme Saskia will give you tips and advice on how to approach social events, working away and holidays away from home.  

 

“I can’t make all those call dates – does that mean I can’t join?”

If you can’t make any of the live group calls it’s not a problem. All the calls are recorded. You’ll receive the link to these recordings the day after the live call and even if you can make the call, you’ll have the recordings as a future learning reference.

 

“Who will I be sharing this raw food journey with?”

People join this programme from literally all over the world. Previous participants have phoned in from across the UK (including …) as well as from America, Switzerland, France and Kenya. Women from their early 20s through to their 60s have worked with me. The programme usually attracts busy women, from business owners to working mums and solicitors, who all believe that good health is as important for the spirit as it is for the mind and the body. All the women who I work with want more energy, to feel confident about their body shape, to de-stress and do something good for themselves. A desire for spiritual connection, emotional balance and mental clarity is very common among participants too.

 

"My husband and kids don't eat raw food.  Will it be too much work for me to prepare meals for them as well as the programme recipes for myself?"

Many of the women who I work with are in this situation and manage really well.  Because the food is so delicious, most women find that their husband and children start to eat more raw foods too.  Saskia has great tips and advice on how to create cooked/raw 'crossover' meals so that you don't have to cook 2 entirely separate meals.  An example of a crossover meal would be a raw stir fry for you, with added cooked rice and salmon for the rest of the family.  If your family don't like any kind of raw food, you can just cook the stir fry for them, leaving it raw for yourself.  The whole family will benefit from increasing the amount of veggies in their diet, plus you will be making delicious sugar-free raw snacks that your kids will love 

 

“How much extra will I be spending on food a week?”

The answer to this question depends on what you usually eat.  If you are used to buying meat, fish, cheese, wine or pre-packed meals and takeaways, the ingredients for the programme may well cost you less than you are used to spending.  If you eat rice and dhal, the extra fresh fruit and veg will cost you more than usual.  On average, people report that the first week (while they are stocking up their cupboards with healthy ingredients) is usually around £100, and after that the weekly shop is £60+, depending on where you shop.  Remember that, by investing in wonderfully fresh and healthy ingredients during the programme, you are investing in yourself and your long term health and wellbeing.

 

“I’ve not participated in a group call before – how will I know what to do?”

Group calls with Saskia are simple to attend, informative and relaxed. You will receive regular reminder emails with clear instructions on how to take part in your group calls during the programme.

 

“How do I know it’s worth the investment?”  I’m confident that you’ll be thrilled with the results of this programme. You can’t know that for sure until you’ve actually taken part in the programme, of course. So, I want to make sure you have no excuses to hold yourself back from feeling fabulous – which is why I offer a No-Risk Guarantee. If you fully participate in the programme and you’re not completely satisfied, then you get your money back. It’s as simple as that!

This programme is right for you if …

  • You are ready to empower yourself to make healthy choices instead of emotionally driven choices.
  • You want to make long-lasting changes to your relationship with food and yourself.
  • You are ready to take responsibility for your life, your health and your emotional wellbeing so that you can feel amazing.
  • You want to feel at peace with what you eat.
  • You love the idea of eating raw food but need support to do it.
  • You want to feel full of vitality and would like to find your natural weight.
  • You crave a sacred space where you will feel heard and valued every week.
  • You feel stuck, overwhelmed or exhausted and need help to build your emotional strength.
  • You are longing to feel inspired and excited about your life and your potential.

"I feel healthier, happier and ready to continue my raw food journey. Thank you Saskia!"

 

"Saskia is a very understanding and supportive coach and helped me to understand and overcome issues such as emotional eating and cravings.

I was a bit nervous at first as I had never done anything like that before, but everyone was lovely and it was useful to hear how everyone was getting on and celebrate each other's successes.

The programme was well worth the investment. I learned a lot about raw food and tried things that I may not have done before. The coaching from Saskia was invaluable in helping me understand and deal with various issues in a friendly and non-judgemental way."

Linda Caines, NHS Administrator

 

What this life-changing programme is not …

  • A run-of-the-mill programme that can't be done on holiday and doesn’t apply to everyday life.
  • A regime that needs loads of specialised raw food equipment.
  • A load of exercises and plans with no personal guidance.
  • Something that will only change the way you feel for 8 weeks, then it’s back to ‘normal’.
  • An easy way of losing weight or getting healthy without understanding why you are where you are.

About Saskia

I originally became interested in raw food back in 2005, but it took me another 3 years and a life-changing car accident to actually motivate myself to really give it a go. I was bumbling through life feeling low on energy, high on stress and emotionally eating my way through life when the most profound event happened in 2007. I was on road trip in Argentina with my mum and two of my sisters when our car rolled, killing one of my sisters, paralysing my other sister and putting me in intensive care.

Back in the UK, the rest of my family received a phone call to say they didn’t know if any of us would survive the accident.

It took me 3 months of rest to recover from my physical injuries, and during that time I had plenty of time to think about what was important in life.

Before the accident I worked myself to the bone and was really hard on myself. I drove my poor body and brain to the edge of a nervous breakdown with my first business. I was always criticising myself and telling myself I wasn’t doing things well enough, right enough, or just plain ‘enough’. I disliked the way I looked and I was on an emotional roller coaster. I felt like I was living life in a haze.

The accident gave me a wake-up call. Very little seems worth getting stressed over or worried about when you’ve been through an experience like that. All I wanted was to learn how to love myself and to be deep-down happy. And I realised that I wanted to help others do the same.

When I discovered the profoundly life-changing effects of eating a high raw diet everything fell into place. I experienced the fast track to sorting out my food and body issues as well as being able to get off the emotional roller coaster. I felt at peace and in control for the first time in my life.

 

Raw food gives you…
  • Emotional balance
  • Emotional space to experience joy and happiness
  • Self-confidence
  • Freedom from food addictions
  • Greater self-awareness
  • Energy and vitality
  • Mental clarity

 

As a certified Coach I’ve been working with clients since 2008. I’ve directly coached and taught over 750 people about the body, mind and spirit benefits of eating a high raw diet and learning self-love. I’ve shown my clients how to let go of their fears and to honour themselves and their natural intuitive wisdom like never before. I would love you to become part of this tribe too.

"Transformational! The best start to the New Year I could have given myself."

 

"I loved the support and the fact that I didn’t have to plan recipes. The support calls were fantastic - absolutely loved them - great to hear how everyone was getting on and Saskia's valuable advice really helped you through the next week.

It is worth every penny and more."

Bridgette Burnett, Therapist/Tutor

 

Our bodies and minds are scientifically proven to be made from what we eat, drink, breath and absorb and yet we fill ourselves with nutritionally low-grade foods, smoke and drink alcohol and expect our bodies not to grumble. We abuse ourselves with our critical inner voices and sabotage our attempts to improve our lives. It’s no wonder that most of us feel less than our best most of the time. Through these 8 weeks of emotionally fulfillment you will experience a nurturing raw food programme that will help you meet your amazing physical, emotional and spiritual potential.

Emma
"I want everyone I love to be able to feel this good!"

 

It gave me so so much more than I'd expected; I felt lighter, brighter and so much clearer in all aspects of my life, and the benefits were almost immediately obvious.

And on a slightly vainer note; my skin looked younger than it has in years and the weight just fell off me without me ever being hungry, and I ate so much raw chocolate and ice cream!

I felt good in my skin, in a way that I don't think I ever have before.  Raw food has been an incredible discovery for me and one that I am eager to share; I want everyone I love to be able to feel this good!

Emma Palmer, Midwife

"My skin is clearer and my weight is down by 11lbs"

 

" I wanted to do this programme because I was feeling a bit down that I'd been eating a lot of rubbish and was a bit out of control. I decided it was time to get a hold of things and change course.

I'd done a 30 day challenge before and remembered how wonderful I felt so I wanted to do it again with more support this time.

The programme was just what I needed. It gave me the push that I desperately wanted at the time.  Saskia's coaching and advice all along the way was an added boost which kept the motivation high throughout the programme.  Saskia was informative and great to listen to with sound advice and help on issues that arose along the way.

I feel really great. My skin is clearer and my weight is down by 11lbs. That is a fabulous start and this has really motivated me to carry on and reach my goal weight."

Suzanne Gordon, Social Worker

Anna Hagberg
"I feel that I want to continue eating more raw, it felt so great when I followed the programme."

 

"Saskia is a great coach that manages to combine very positive and energising bubbliness with a very supportive more serious approach.

The programme made me feel like I invested in myself and my own well-being on a deeper level than if I had just bought something materialistic."

Anna Hagberg, Crossword Designer

Francesca Bourne
"I feel lighter, I have more energy, I actually want to get out of bed in the mornings."

 

"Before I started I was quite stressed and anxious about my life and health. I felt heavy and had put on nearly 2 stone. I was recommended the program by friends who had already worked with Saskia. At the beginning I was very excited and nervous about doing it; happy I was taking charge of my life and doing something for me.

Saskia's coaching was an essential part of the program and I wouldn't have been able to do it without her wise support. It was very helpful to talk to Saskia and get reassured, I felt I could tell her anything. Now that I have completed the program I feel great! I have lost 12 pounds! Everyone is telling me I look amazing and vibrant."
