Anita participated in Nutrition Coaching with me, being very concerned about her gut health, with good reason. We have made some incredible changes to improve it immensely, as well as helping her lean up a little further. I’m totally loving the newfound energy Anita is enjoying now too.
Anita is an incredible woman, and an awesome role model for her children and fitness clients. She loves to learn and asks lots of questions, which I absolutely LOVE! There is nothing more satisfying for a coach than having a client that is so willing to learn and progress.
Anita, thank you for trusting me, and making coaching you so easy! You are an incredible woman, business owner and trainer, and I have the utmost respect for you. I am so proud of how far you have come, and I look forward to taking things to the next level, as your gut health continues to improve. Awesome work lovey!

Here is Anita’s story in her own words:
“I’ve known Terri for many years after I attended a nutrition workshop years ago. I also became in contact with Terri again after she joined one of my business coaching groups and I became attracted to her teaching and education. I found out that Terri was well into Nutrition Coaching so I joined her community group for more education on nutrition, as I have been suffering from gut issues for a few months now.
Long story short my mum passed away in Dec 2020 from bowel cancer. One week before she passed, I started to experience nerve issues, high anxiety, severe insomnia, heart palpitations, reflux, then burst an internal hemorrhoid on an extensive reflux cough. This was all brought on from the stress of losing my mum, and abusing my gut with gluten and dairy, whilst in survival mode, eating foods that I knew I was intolerant to. My body went a-wall. I seriously felt I was starting to see every specialist to see what was wrong with me to taking so many supplements to try and get my body back on track.
The reflux was absolutely killing me. I was on Nexium and the pain was getting worse. I finally had a gastroscopy and colonoscopy which only gave me the answer of ‘mild gastritis’ and was told to consider the FODMAP diet.
I saw Terri advertise Nutrition coaching and I jumped at the opportunity to gain help in sorting out my gut issues and whatever else had become imbalanced in my body over the last 12 months plus. From there we started the journey.
I’ve learnt so much from Terri with one on one coaching to her education in her groups. I’ve always struggled with my weight being up and down. I know macro counting has worked for me, but I didn’t want to count numbers all my life. Terri made this super simple for me, bringing my diet back down to basics and removing all the inflammatory foods for my gut health. I learnt about other foods I could utilise, like ghee instead of butter, which worked better for my gut as I’m dairy intolerant.
I gained energy, better sleep, better mood, diet became easier to manage, lost 3kg which I was finding hard to shift. My exercise improved strength wise, which was great because I run my own pregnancy and mums’ fitness business.
My biggest challenge was getting rid of the pain from the reflux which we have 99.9% of the time. I do get the odd rebound and we are still working out why.
I’ve lost 3kg that I was battling to do with the nutrition protocol Terri designed for me, which I can implement into my daily life quite easily and around my kids and my training.
I’m still on a roadblock of what we suspect is SIBO in my gut and trying to work out what is causing my bloating and bowel issues since having the gastroscopy.
I’m now working closely with a Naturopath with further in-depth testing that my GP and specialist aren’t doing, to work out my gut health and how to rebalance my body.
I’m loving the weight loss which is allowing me to fit back into my clothes comfortably.
I’m loving the energy and the reduced bloating and definitely not having the need for day naps anymore.
I love being productive with my kids and running my business.
All the changes I have made with my nutrition have allowed me to apply my knowledge to my clients and family and friends and to my everyday life, to make me feel better from the inside out.
The confidence in Terri’s Nutrition Coaching has given me the confidence to refer her program to my clients whom also require additional assistance, to help resolve their issues and to meet their goals for their fitness with me, and their overall health and wellbeing.
The changes in my nutrition have given me the energy with reduced inflammation in my body, to excel in my own fitness training with my clients.
I highly recommend Terri’s Nutrition Coaching if you are struggling with goals and or health issues.
Terri is a wealth of knowledge, and her support is next to nothing.” – Anita Guerra
