Zoe has changed our lives.
"We eat everything we want and we know how to eat it sensibly".
We have received countless comments about the positive changes in our appearance and attitude. These observations come from not only our friends and family but from many business clients. We are often asked what the secret is, and we tell them, SEE ZOE!!
Figuerate doesn’t feel like a regimented diet program, it’s a simple lifestyle choice.
Thank you for all your advice and support – we look forward to seeing you soon with our new baby Rocco!

After a process of elimination through various tests, natural food chemical intolerance was eventually detected, which involved salicylates, amines and glutamates. I first started working with Zoe in February 2012. I was advised that Zoe specialised in assisting people with my type of condition.
I had been experiencing a rash, itchiness with pins & needles over my body, and also nausea, over a period of about 12 months. Zoe explained that my peripheral nervous system was being affected with the nerve endings being irritated by a build up of these natural food chemicals. I needed to lower my baseline of food chemicals and then very gradually build my level back up to find my threshold. This involved eliminating a lot of different types of fruits and vegetables, spices, dairy products, wheat products (gluten), meats, oils and condiments, over an initial period of 6 weeks. Zoe was very clear as to why and how to do this. She supplied ample information, which was invaluable.
Over the next 6 months, she helped me with the food challenges and then bringing my tolerance back up to a manageable level, through gradually reintroducing foods and additives that had previously affected my nervous system. The process is long and can be time consuming (it took me approx. 8 months), but believe me it IS worth it in the end. Every day is different, but overall I am able to manage my condition much more capably - given the information and advice I have received from Zoe.
Zoe has always been available, either by email, text or phone call, at any time I needed some assistance. She has been invaluable with her expertise and knowledge in helping to manage this condition.

I can only recommend Zoe and her team HIGHLY to you!
I’m a mother of 3 boys under 5. My last pregnancy I gained an extra 9kgs and I had sore hips and just couldn’t fit in things. I didn’t like the way I looked anymore and I hated shopping because nothing looked good on me.
I was seeing a personal trainer who was fantastic and through her I met Zoe. Zoe set me up with a meal plan with every thing that I liked to cook and eat, and I was able to use the same foods for my kids which was perfect, as I like to cook one meal for the whole family to share.
I was provided with recipes and a meal planner and I thought if I am serious about losing this weight, I deserve to pay for the full service from Zoe and get as much out of this as I can for mysel!.
During my 6 weeks with Zoe and the personal trainer, my middle son had to have an operation and I actually didn’t have time to see the personal trainer for 4 weeks out of the 6 weeks that I had pre booked…
But I did still stick to the plan Zoe gave me … I lost all 9 kgs from 65kg to my original weight to 56kgs in 6 weeks! (And I didn’t stave)
Actually the first week of the Healthy diet plan I found my lunch times to be over filling which I found strange, but great!
My body felt like a well run machine, I had so much more energy and I could see in my eyes I looked much more healthy and this was without setting time for exercise… I guess chasing my 3 kids around is enough exercise ☺
I CANNOT recommend Zoe and her team MORE to you… stop spending your money on Shakes and no carb diets… I have never been one for diets and I wanted to lose weight the right way and it has now been 9 months and I have kept it off and seriously there is no reason for me to ever put it back on with the knowledge Zoe and her team has given me. I will be instilling this even with my children’s children.
Thank you Zoe you’re an awesome woman and you have really helped me and I am always referring people to see you.
It’s great to Look and Feel beautiful, so thank you. Ring her and use her she’s Great!!!!

"After seven months of tests, tests and more tests with no real identification of any problem and many off hand diagnosis such as IBS, I was lucky enough to find Zoe. By conducting an elimination diet (after testing negative for Coeliac Disease) Zoe was able to determine I did have a gluten intolerance, and after months and months of sickness, tears and frustration I began following a gluten free diet and started to get better. Zoe even contacted my Doctors and discovered they’d misread my blood tests, which led to further investigations and resolved some additional iron deficiency problems. I am now living happily, symptom free on a tasty, healthy, gluten free diet and can’t thank Zoe enough for her support and persistence in finding a solution when most other medical professionals simply gave up. Not only did seeing Zoe mean that I am now well, I have also learnt the benefits of a healthy balanced diet and how I can incorporate this into normal day to day living with ease. I honestly can’t recommend Zoe and figureate enough!"

"I am very grateful to Zoe for pointing me in the right direction to enable me to achieve better health and quality of life. With quite minimal but important changes in diet and a focus on a daily exercise regime (not to mention the occasional glass of red wine) I have experienced a transformation. My energy levels have increased 100% and the change has been apparent to everyone at work and with my partner and grandchildren."

"I have been exercising intensely for quite a while and initially lost weight but found I could not lose those last few kilos no matter how hard I tried. Zoe has helped me to not only lose those niggling kilos but has also guided me in ensuring my diet is free of any gluten (I have Coeliac Disease). Zoe provides great advice in a clear and concise manner and she answers all your questions and gives you a number of great and yummy food ideas to try. These are often simple and easy to prepare and all ingredients are available at the supermarket. I now have lost those kilos and continue to keep them off and make better food choices whilst still enjoying life's little indulgences. Thanks for all your help and advice Zoe."
