A LITTLE BIT ABOUT ME
Hey I’m Liezl Jayne – I’m a South African YouTuber, lifestyle blogger, author, recipe creator, and a nutritional therapist. I’m currently living in LA with Rob (my husband), and I have 2 doggies named Chloe and Rosco (who are my main obsession in life, let’s be honest).
I started this blog to share the healthy recipes that I love to create in my kitchen, and it evolved into a way of me sharing the healthy lifestyle, diet and fitness tips that I’ve learned over the past 10 years. More recently, I’ve been sharing (here on the blog and through my Ebooks) how I lost 40 pounds after struggling with my weight for years.
I’ve also started to share my natural beauty tips, routines, tutorials and my how-to style tips here on the blog (and on my YouTube channel).
My main passions in life are all related to YouTube, and inspiring healthy living, creating delicious-and-healthy recipes, helping women to lose weight naturally, fashion, and also – singing, song-writing and acting.
A LITTLE BIT ABOUT MY HEALTH + WEIGHT JOURNEY
As a little girl, I was always sick (and I mean always… I had a lot of allergies and health issues to overcome as a young child) and so trying to live a healthier lifestyle and follow a healthier diet became really important to me. It wasn’t always easy (especially in the beginning), but I’ve learned so much about nutrition and healthy eating over the years. Then in 2009, I got really sick with the H1N1 Swine Flu (which affected many people worldwide that year)… and I’m trying not to sound too dramatic over here, but I was very ill for a long time as the Flu turned in Pneumonia, and according to my doctor… I almost didn’t make it. But in the end I survived!!! It took me more than 6 months to walk again, more than 2 years to feel like myself again and about 4 years to fully recover. I later found out I that had had mono too. Then in 2018, I got sick with mono again (very sick) and was on bedrest for more than 7 months (it was awful, but I did get to watch a lot of series during that time… which was the only highlight). Now 2019, I’m regaining my health again and doing more research on the EBV virus (best known as the cause of mono), as well as working on some exciting upcoming projects!
After graduating high-school, I decided to become a Nutritional Therapist to broaden my knowledge about nutrition and healthy eating even more. I was also keen to know more about healthy dieting, because I struggled so much with my weight for years – no diet that I had tried in the past seemed to work for me, and I never saw results no matter how much I exercise I did. Finally after YEARS of struggling with my weight, I found a simple method (after tons of research and trial-and-error) that worked for me.
As my body began to change, so many friends and family members wanted to know exactly what I was doing to lose weight, and so I began to share my method and steps with them. The word started to get out about what I was doing, and I would get messages on Facebook and emails from women I didn’t even know who wanted my recipes, eating plans and workouts. Eventually I was emailing so many women with all of the info, eating plans and workouts that I decided to create my Ebooks.
I got really into writing my books, because I’m so passionate about helping women to lose weight and get the results that they want (because I know first hand what it’s like). I’m dedicated to sharing helpful information, easy to use eating plans, safe dieting methods and workouts that bring real results.
THE BEAUTIFUL BODY GUIDE
After spending more than a year and a half writing the books, I ended up finding a photographer and a designer (who I worked closely with – taking all the photos and designing together) to make the books look amazing and user-friendly. I’m so excited that the Ebooks are now available for download on my blog.
I created The Beautiful Body Guide because I felt like I wanted something like this to exist. There wasn’t anything out there that I’d come across at the time that really spoke to me as a young women trying to lose weight naturally.
I just wanted someone to give me the workouts, eating plan, recipes and the exact information that I needed to get the results that I wanted – so that’s what I created. I wanted something healthy, safe and effective – that was also affordable, easy-to-use and beautifully designed. And I couldn’t find exactly what I wanted in the market place.
I’m currently giving away a Free copy of my 3 day eating plan (but won’t always be) – just sign up and you’ll receive it to your inbox to download.
