Meet Tracey McBeath
Hello, thank you for being here. I am a 47-year-old mum to my 5 kids. After doing a Bachelor of Arts degree majoring in Teaching when I finished school, I ended up working in Human Resources until I had my first of 5 kids. Around the age of 30, I was ready for a career change and became a qualified Personal Trainer. A few years ago I moved into Health Coaching. This is where my passion really lies. Helping people see they have the capacity within to live the life they want to live.
Life has a funny way of not turning out as we planned. Having 5 kids, as an example, was never in the plan for me! But after my first marriage ended when I had 3 young kids, I was lucky enough to find love again 2 years later to my now-husband Jim. Together we have 2 beautiful boys. I thank the universe every day for blessing me with 5 healthy and vibrant children!
While I have always been into health and fitness, by the time I hit 40, it was clear what I had been doing up to that point (following the high carb, low fat dietary guidelines) wasn’t really working for me now. I was struggling to lose the 15kg I had gained after baby number 4, and after getting some blood done, I was also getting close to becoming pre-diabetic. I was also tired all the time, and at night, I couldn’t stop eating.
It was enough to completely turn my life around. After doing some research online, I came across Professor Tim Noakes, and by the age of 42 I had reversed by pre-diabetes and was on the path to full metabolic health.
