Beginning her career in fitness in 1977, Catie soon discovered a need beyond exercise. People needed help losing weight and maintaining . She realized exercise alone didn't achieve desired weight goals. With a member filled gym, she began the journey of helping people lose weight one person at a time. Combining principles of sound nutrition with emotional support, Catie embarked on a journey that would exceed 4 decades.
She says: "I had to learn it through experience because there was no-one that "could" teach me the skills necessary to help people with this complex problem. There is so much more to weight loss than simply "following a diet". Everyone is different, their metabolisms are different, and they change every 3 days. It has taken me a lifetime to gain the knowledge that I now have. Unfortunately the obesity rate has grown faster than I could help. One person at a time method is simply too slow. The world is now in a crisis. It is my goal to share the unique knowledge and scientific principles that I've discovered with everyone willing to hear. It's time to heal the world. The internet has arrived just in time. "
