Weight loss under supervision
Nutritionist at Palais des Cosmétiques
Hello everyone, my name is Stephanie Bliekendaal, graduated nutritionist / dietitian and beautician. I have a passion for beauty care, feeling well and showing it. I'm convinced that beauty care does not only originate from the outside but also from the inside. Therefore it is not only important to use good products for the skin, but also take care of the body from the inside out. That's the reason I am both a beautician and a dietician / nutritionist. I get a kick out of helping people to lose weight in a responsible way without making them feel they are on a diet. It is not my goal to put someone on a diet, but to improve their lifestyle. It is of the utmost importance to me and my colleagues to make you feel good in your body. You can come to me for all sorts of questions regarding healthy food, but also for specific areas of expertise like allergies, diabetes and other ailments. Together we will strive for realistic goals, for both the short term as longer term solutions.
Dear Steph, precisely one year ago we happened to talk about my body at work. At the time I was far from happy with my body. With a height of 176cm and a weight of 86 kilos that might be understandable to some. You told me you graduated as a dietician. I made the first appointment that very day. It was on a Friday, I could eat and drink all I want and on Monday you would create a modified nutritional program. That was a great experience, you having more faith in me than I had in myself. That's why I was so motivated to start with the first assignment. Track what, how much and when I ate or drank something for three days. That's the list I came back to you with in the same week. You quickly honed in on my "weak" points in my daily food regime. Too much sugar, too much sweetener and too much time in between meals. Basically no regularity and unhealthy food. In the meanwhile you had composed a nutritional program that I took to the supermarket. Wow, those were some different items than what I was used to. It was very nice to experience I did not feel a sense of hunger with the program, that was my biggest fear. I was also happy to see a nutritional program that consisted of only "normal" ingredients. No shakes or replacement items. This way made it possible to lose a lot of weight initially, and to this day I'm able to retain a healthy dietary pattern. My eating habits have changed from unhealthy without regularity, to healthy with extreme regularity. Every week I stopped by diligently to weigh myself and discuss the nutritional program. I felt comfortable, had the courage to ask you anything... en guess what... the weight just vanished. Of course that was my main concern, but I had forgotten I could live without pain in my stomach (intestines). I was used to having an intestinal attack at least twice a week since I was 14 years old. The attacks stopped after I started to follow your "rules". During weak moments you were always there for me, both mentally and physically. You were always up for a good conversation or a hug. A year has past and I retain my optimal weight. I'm still between 65 and 67 kilos. Every tool, all tips and conversations help me to this day. Dear Steph, what you have meant to me and still mean to me cannot be described in words. Once again I've become a person who is satisfied with her body. I have more energy, self confidence and knowledge about the meaning of good nutrition for a human being. Thanks so much for what you have done for me!! Very kind and loving regards Lianne
