I never though food freedom would feel like this.

I never realised how much dieting affected my life. From the way I saw myself and treated myself as my biggest enemy to undermining my every decision and feeling incompetent, to sabotaging my long term relationship because I didn't believe that I should be worthy of love in body I had. In my head, I wasn't good enough until I would have the body I thought I need to have. With every diet I fell into a deeper hole of self doubt, hate for my self and life I didn't wanna live.

Food Freedom for Life gave me all I ever wished for and so much more. 

I realised that living free from dieting and constant fear, how choices I make affects my body, health and life, is so much more than peace with food. I made peace in with my life. I started living now, the life I never dared until I will have the perfect body. 

On top of this all, I love the way I feel, I am learning to love my body and my health has been improving.

word from Vera

You are one step closer to a life in food freedom without food rules and binge episodes, where you can move past the guilt and stress around food to create healthy, fulfilling life, right now.

I know exactly why you lose control around food and binge eat. 
I know why you feel that the harder you try, the harder it gets. 
And I also know how to change this in a matter of weeks. 

I have helped hundreds of women recover from diet culture, free their minds from food rules and heal their bodies from the constant cycle of restriction and binge. And I know that YOU CAN TOO!

None of this is your fault. We live in a world filled with a diet culture where weight loss is the key to everything, health, success, love,... I wish, when I was trying to make sense of the plethora of diet advice, there would be someone who would understand, how hard it is to resist, how hards it is to always be good and someone who would tell me that what I need to do is to heal my relationship with food, not to try another diet. 

Food Freedom for Life is my response to all of this. The program that helps you live. 

Food Freedom for Life


Because everyone deserves the opportunity to heal their relationship with food!
Nobody should have to go through this alone. 
I created the exact program I WISH I had when I was struggling.

How I see

Food Freedom

If there is one thing I’ve learned in the past 14 years of my practice is that every diet or lifestyle change backfires if it’s implemented for the purpose of weight loss. Something I knew for a long time but was too scared to see it. Because how else I can control my weight than through controlling my food and exercise? 

It wasn’t until I was fed up with seeing my clients fail. Having them cancel their follow-up season because they simply felt they failed and didn’t want to face the reality in person. Then driven by my own hormonal healing journey and failed dieting attempts I searched for a new and gentle way how to be myself again. How to live life in the present and stop being afraid of every single bite I took, seeing food as an escape or punishment. 


Food Freedom for life is my answer to a healthy body, happy mind and life without dieting.

Yes, being able to eat without guilt, without making up for bad choices or free from fear of how will that bite affects my body. While actually seeing my body reach its natural weight, my hormones and health improve and my mind is calm. 


Food Freedom for Life guides you back into trusting your inner wisdom and intuition rather than following rigid rules and external advice that are often inflexible and unsustainable in the long term. Often the major cause of hormonal imbalance, weight cycling and anxiety leading to deeper physical and mental health problems. 


Food Freedom for Life is rooted in the Intuitive Eating Self -Care Framework by Elyse Resch and Evelyn Tribole and evidence-based nutrition to help you balance and support your health providing you with a unique set of skills entirely based on your current body needs and emotional state so you know what’s best for you at any moment. 


The only flexible and sustainable way to live in a healthy body and mind is to rid yourself of external rules and restrictions, learn to tune into your body cues and needs and react to them with compassion & curiosity. Treating your body and mind with kindness truly creates life-long happiness. 


Food Freedom for Life is helping you deepen and expand your relationship with your body, make peace with food and take back charge of your health with consideration of your current needs.


What would it feel like if you would be never on a diet again?
Look at your life right now and imagine what would it look like to achieve Food Freedom?
