I'm Melissa

I am here to help YOU ditch Diet Culture, heal your relationship with food and take your POWER back!

But if you're wondering about who I am, here's a little bit about me...

I’m a Certified Integrative Nutrition Health Coach, Meditation Practitioner, and self-proclaimed "foodie" specializing in Holistic Health and wellness for women who are ready to create a bigger experience of life without the shackles of Diet Culture holding them back (P.S.

I also founded and am the host of the LifeKraft Podcast, a self-development podcast created to help you learn how to go about this thing called life in a more enjoyable and uplifting way. Consider it your Library to all things 'life'!

What drives me is living fully and creating a bigger experience of life!

I grew up in South Africa, in a single-parent household without many material things, but I was always encouraged to dream BIG! I had a love and fascination for everything mystical, Nature, music, the moon, stars, and planets, and spent days learning, reading, and exploring the less micro and macro cosmos as much as I could. It was my escape, and it turned out to be where most of my life's miracles lay. 


I struggled with eating disorders, and my relationship with food & my body all my life. I was put on my first diet at the age of 9 and it pretty much went downhill from there. Suffered from many disordered eating patterns and tried EVERY diet that was trendy at the time. I weighed myself every day and the number on the scale not only determined my mood for the day but also my self-worth in my mind.

I binged, starved, purged, over-exercised, and hated every part of my body for years. I felt trapped in my body like other was something wrong with it, something wrong with ME.


I also suffered from a number of health conditions like IBS Asthma, and Skin Picking Disorder, and the more I tried to DIET my way to better health & more acceptance the worse my health became. 

Growing up I believed the skinner you are and the smaller you are the better. I strived to make myself shrink away, not realizing that if you shrink yourself in one area of life you will shrink yourself in them all!

I then went on a healing journey, learning about food, the human body, and its amazing cycles and systems, how the mind works, how my past trauma affected my experiences with food, and how to heal in all aspects of life, and now I teach women just like YOU what I have learned and experienced.

No, really. I want you to believe me when I say that.  

I have felt the guilt and shame of binge-eating to a point of discomfort, I have hid food from loved ones and I have sat crying on the floor because I felt too ugly to go out with friends because of my weight.

I have said no to opportunities in my previous career, no to dates, no to swimming on the beach in a bathing suit, and no to adventures, events, and fun because of my past relationship with food, as I am sure you have done too.


I'm just a regular girl who decided to see if there was another option. And guess what, THERE IS!

I want you to know that there is a version of you that is happier, healthier, and has a bigger experience of life. She's there, waiting for you to step out of your old story and into her shoes. 

Sometimes the weight you need to lose isn't on your body, sometimes you need to realize that your healthy body doesn't look like anyone else's body, and sometimes you need to simply learn how to really nourish your unique body so that you can live the life of your dreams. 

I am still writing my success story as the days go by. Healing isn't linear and I notice more and more healing and progress as the years go by. 

I no longer experience constant fatigue, asthma, IBS, food allergies, or skin conditions.

I healed my relationship with food, I understand what food I need, how my body cycles through the month, how to create balance when I seemed to have lost it and how to create a life that encourages me to be full of more things than just food.


No more binge-eating, starving, dieting, or deprivation. No more obsessing over weight or the size of my jeans. No more saying no to life.


I took my power back, and it feels damn good!
