At FIT CHICKS Academy we love seeing the creative smoothie recipes our Holistic Nutrition Weight Loss Expert students whip up in their blenders! Today we are excited to share this recipe from Holistic Nutrition Weight Loss Expert Program grad Lidia Alcantara.
“Hello, my name is Lidia Alcantara, I’m Massage Practitioner, Aesthetician, Energy Healing Practitioner, Holistic and Integrative Health Coach, and a Holistic Nutrition and Weight Loss Expert certified by FIT CHICKS Academy.
I’m passionate about nutrition, health and food preparation and am so happy I found the Fit Chicks Holistic Nutrition and Weight Loss program.
I was raised on the beautiful island of the Dominican Republic and now, at 43, I live in Canada with my 24 year old daughter.
I have worked as a Massage Practitioner for 16 years, I love what I do but still I want to make a difference in the world, and that’s the reason why I took the Holistic Nutrition and Weight Loss Expert program.
I have been through a wonderful transformational process while I was doing my Holistic Nutrition Weight Loss Expert program. I lost 15 pounds and have learned to accept, love and care about my body/myself, with a healthy lifestyle full of nutritious foods. I am anxious to share all this knowledge with other women who are determinate to make a changes in their lives.
Without commitment there is no change, and once you make a commitment to yourself and adopt a healthier lifestyle, there is no way that you fail, that is one of the reasons why the FIT CHICKS program is so successful, it is not about a diet to lose weight, it is about a Healthy lifestyle that once you start your life will change forever.”
