I'm Annelyse – thank you for visiting us! If you’re reading this, then you’re probably where I was 15
years ago when I founded Lime & Zest Wellness out of sheer frustration. Frustration at not being able to keep my energy levels and weight stable. I know it’s something you don’t typically want to hear from a company founder, but there’s a real story behind the concept I created for myself and that I want to share with you. Empowering you to care and be kind to yourself, take control of your life, not just from a health and fitness perspective, but also from an overall wellbeing and wellness perspective.
I spent much my career in the City – long hours, travel, working across time zones – I was constantly trying to 'lose a few kilos' and had the nagging sensation of feeling exhausted not only because of long hours.
I tried countless diets and retreats, but my weight and more importantly my energy levels continued to go up and down like a rollercoaster. It was simply not working for me! Why was I feeling this way?
During a consultation, my GP in Geneva asked me about my food habits and made a simple suggestion…. Cut out sugar completely from my diet for 2 months. Why? Stable blood sugar levels, improve insulin response and boost energy. I tried and the rest is history! Lime & Wellness was born!
This was the turnaround I needed! I discovered a passion for food (including cooking – that’s another story), nutrition and wellness. I have studied nutrition and I am now a qualified as a Nutrition and Wellness Coach and I continue to study and evolve the concept. There’s a lot of ‘subject matter’ behind what led me to come up with this service to helps you take charge of the changes you want to make in your life.
To this day I am still the living proof that the concept works.
