A little about me

Originally from Izmir, Turkey, I completed my undergraduate degree in Computer and Electronical Engineering from Koc University in Istanbul. After graduation, I co-founded a digital content platform that marketed and sold e-books and digital content. I continued on in digital performance marketing working with a digital banking team at the fourth largest private bank in Turkey. Since 2015, I have been a Holistic Nutrition and Lifestyle Coach that focuses on Alkaline Nutrition with a Mediterranean Diet touch, as my hometown is along in the Mediterranean Coast of Turkey.

My Path to an Alkaline Lifestyle

During my time at Koc, I studied abroad at Drexel University in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. While there, I gained an incredible amount of weight. After turning back to Turkey, I constantly tried to find a way to lose the weight I gained but struggled to find a way. Throughout those years I continued on a path of weight loss, weight gain and dieting. I went through the typical ‘yo-yo’ dieting cycle. I would lose the weight only to gain it all back. That experience, combined with the stress required to achieve my education and career pursuits, resulted in terrible digestive problems and poor overall health. I knew I needed to change my lifestyle and my eating habits. I knew I needed to lose weight, reclaim my health, and own my body, my weight, and my lifestyle.

Finally, after years of using numerous nutrition coaches and experimenting with fad diets I read in magazines, I consulted with a gastroenterologist who introduced me to alkaline nutrition. My life changed forever after encountering the alkaline lifestyle and I experienced its immediate positive effects.

Inspired, I read countless articles and books on the Alkaline Nutrition model and adapted this new approach to my lifestyle combining with Mediterranean elements. After a short period of time, my digestive problems essentially disappeared, and by simply eating mostly alkaline foods, I lost 14 kilograms. My life really began to improve. And I was able to sustain those improvements easily. I was so thrilled with my consistent progress that I became convinced others needed to experience the benefits of an alkaline lifestyle.

In fact, I was so passionate I started my education with Certified Holistic Nutrition Practitioner Program through the University of Natural Health. Additionally, I gained training in Child Nutrition from the Stanford School of Medicine, Nutrition in Pregnancy from the Ludwig Maximillian University, Health Psychology in Practice from Spectrum Mental Health and completed courses in Molecular Dietetics from the Irene Diet Academy and also completed Nutritionist Series: Clinical Weight-Loss Strategies to Support Your Clients by The Health Sciences Academy.

In 2018, I moved to London and completed the Diploma Program in Nutrition and Lifestyle Coaching from the Institute of Health Sciences and became a member to UK Health Coaches Association. Now living in London, I have dedicated myself to share the alkaline and Mediterranean diet and lifestyle approach to everyone. I know that this type of nutrition and lifestyle enhances health, self-confidence and improves physical appearance. Through coaching, consulting, and being a lead guide on this life-altering journey, I help people achieve their wellness goals. After coaching thousands of women and men, I can confidently say, alkaline nutrition combined with Mediterrenan Diet & Lifestyle elements  is an incredible method to achieve anyone’s desired results.

My Approach

I believe the best way to achieve results is through dedicated, personalized coaching and consistent feedback. After deciding on your health & wellness goal, I work one-on-one on a daily basis to help you achieve the results you are reaching for. Anyone can become healthy, lose weight and look great, but sometimes they need that extra-push and guided coaching from a professional coach. I customize my nutrition and lifestyle plans so that it works with how you live your life in the real world. There is no-such-thing as a one-size fits all solution. Everyone has different needs. My customized coaching helps you learn how to live an alkaline lifestyle. After we have reached your goals, you will be able to keep the weight off and maintain a sustainable diet and lifestyle on your own because my coaching will build the daily habits, knowledge, and discipline you need to be the best version of yourself.
