Mélanie Simon

be the best me

My name is Mélanie and I am 30 years old. I used to work as a Project Manager until I decided to recently start my business as a Personal Trainer after following a class to be certified. 

After many years of dealing with digestive issues, bloating…I finally found out that I was gluten and lactose intolerant. It was really difficult for me, I just could not imagine my life without bread or pizza. After some researches, I have discovered the Paleo diet and started this new way of eating. It has helped me a lot but I realized that – more than my intolerance – I was a sugar-addict. 

After reading so much things about the effect on sugar on our health, body and even our brain I decided that I needed to do something. Of course, as a physically active person, I have always been told to eat my carbs in order to fuel my body. 

But I like to experiment… and I read about the ketogenic diet and I was like « Let’s give it a try, what do you have to lose anyway ? » And it has changed my life over the last two years. When I talk about keto, I do not use the word « diet », for me it became a lifestyle and I really would like people to see it this way. 

I feel more energetic, my performance during my workouts increases, my skin looks younger and I do not have any digestive issues since then. More importantly, I really love what I eat and there is not a single day where I miss my sugar treats or carbs. Even my boyfriend decided to went low-carb and he is having the best time of his life. 

I would like to make people realize that they can fuel their body differently – than what we are being told without any frustration – and actually feel and get better. I would like to help them during this journey as I believe this is also my duty as a Personal Trainer.
