This is why I do what I do!

There is profound enjoyment in sharing the successes of women who put in the work, and get the results.

Below are just a few beautiful stories of women who have changed their lives!

My own personal story 

I think that one of the reasons that I love what I do so much is that I have been on my own weight loss journey. 

I was a chubby kid. Always bigger than the other kids. I was even put on weight watchers at 10 years old!  Food and weight have always been an issue for me. 

I believe that I used to use food as a safety net when life got too hard. You see, I grew up with a father who was an alcoholic. He was a wonderful man, but he had an alcohol problem which was hard for me to deal with at such a young age. Hence the food!

I actually ended up drinking too much myself for a period of time. 

So, the weight issue was always there. 

I tried so many dreaded diets. I tried all the fad diets and some worked for a while and then I would put it back on and often more. It is one of the reasons I became a nutritionist, to help myself and therefore others. 

It was not till I found Metabolic Balance that all the pieces fell into place with the food and now also understanding the reason I self sabotaged myself and learning what caused my binging issues. Now everything is clear and I have been able to keep the weight off, give 2 or 3 kg. :)

Now I live a healthy lifestyle, making healthy choices and still able to enjoy parties and fun without feeling like I am missing out. Thanks to Metabolic Balance, my body is in balance. 

And I really want to be able to help you feel great and confident. 

Talk about life changing….Zita is awesome.


Yes it was my decision to make a stand for my own health but Zita support got me through and still does to this day.


Forever grateful I said yes.

I started MB Balance with Zita after watching my friend transform into a healthier, hotter version of herself.


I had hypothyroidism, hashimotos and other auto immune conditions, IBS, my gall bladder removed and a lot of random pain in my back, legs and abdomen.


I saw immediate results after a week on MB and every day I felt even better, healthier and less in pain.


After three months I completely reversed my hypothyroidism and had no pain anywhere in my body. I lost 17kg and feel like my body is completely healed and nourished from within. I now have a healthy relationship with food and know what I need to keep my body living to see my future great grand babies.


I can not give Zita enough credit for the way she has changed my life, best life coach ever 😁 Thanks for making me the best version of myself x

Zita was exactly what I needed to make big changes to my health! She is straight to the point, doesn't sugar coat it, and can 100% help you get on top of your eating, gut, health and weight issues.


I have so far lost 10kgs in 7 weeks of being on Metabolic Balance with Zita as my coach but it’s so much more than the weight!


It’s the energy levels, the better sleep, the confidence. Everything! it's literally changed my life & I can't recommend it enough!

After having a baby what I used to do was no longer working. Everything felt completely off balance and out of whack. I was in excellent health before falling pregnant and then giving birth. I was desperate to get my health back in check. 


After speaking to Zita Dixon I knew MB was the right approach for me. I've been on the plan for less than 3 months which I started just before Christmas and was able to lose 10kg's (if not more by now), 12cm on my waist, 11cm on my hips and 5cm on my thigh. Not only has the weight been falling off but my health feels back on track. 


I couldn't be happier that I signed up with Zita Dixon for MB, it has been SO manageable and 100% a way of eating that I can sustain. What I love about it is the simplicity of not having to think what you need to do, the variety in food and especially fruit and veg taking all the micronutrients into account. 


Couldn't recommend it enough and Zita Dixon has been absolutely amazing at supporting through this journey, I highly recommend working with her!

About 4 months ago I got in touch with Zita as I’d reach a pivotal point in my life. As a health practitioner myself we seldom have time for ourselves. I’d realized that I’d given of myself to the point that I had no more to give and my body had rejected me during this time by showing results of nervous system overload.

My weight had ballooned out of control, my mental state had taken a beating and I lacked motivation to get out of bed in the mornings. After consulting with Zita (who hugged me and made me feel comforted) she assured me that MB was the solution and that I was ready to start putting myself first without the guilt.

4 months in and I’ve lost more than 8 kilos, my mental state has improved 100% my energy levels have increased. I’m motivated again (my husband says I’m back!) and I have ZEST for life now!!!

Thank you Zita for your constant support and encouragement. Your gentleness and firmness in keeping me on track. This isn’t a diet it’s a lifestyle and I’m so grateful to have started MB as it feels normal and not depriving at all. Thank you for giving me my life back

A few months ago a good friend of mine popped up a post on FB. It was the kick in the back I needed. This is where I reached out to Zita from Zest Nutrition.


I have now released 13kgs of weight. This has been done only by changing my eating habits and nurturing my body with the right foods.

My IBS is slowly getting under control for the 1st time in 10yrs, my psoriasis is almost under control for the 1st time in my life, posture is improving, chronic headaches are fading. I’m excited to see were the future is taking me.

Update: Debbie, it is now 11 months since started and Deb has dropped 22.5kg and going strong.

Zita Is extremely knowledgeable and genuinely caring. She goes above and beyond for her clients. Her knowledge is next to none.


I can personally vouch for how she’s helped me regular my hormones from extremely unpredictable and painful periods to pain free for the first time in my life and I’m actually regular.


I cannot speak highly enough of everything Zita’s stands for!

Went to Zita after recommendation from a friend, couldn’t be happier with the results. Had inflammation of my joints and lots of sugar cravings- lived on sugar to keep me going with energy, but really had no energy and was tired all the time & my whole body ached, tried to lose weight but couldn’t.


With eliminating foods that weren’t compatible with my body, the weight just fell off ( lost 12kg) & had no more aches & got my energy back. After my work colleagues saw the change in me & commented how well I look, they also joined the journey.

I highly recommend Zita if you are serious about wanting to feel better

I decided to contact Zita after a few months of not feeling quite right. I decided to go ahead with her Metabolic Balance program. With the realisation my liver isn't functioning as it should, I decided to fully focus on my health, and I'm so glad I did.


Zita has been absolutely wonderful, she has a great knowledge of nutrition, but also about the more psychological aspects that affect how we see/our relationship with food. I'm am loving the MB program, the food is specifically picked out for my body's needs (based on blood results) , and I'm still able to prepare delicious meals that I thoroughly enjoy.


I have a long journey ahead of me, but I'm very happy to have her by my side, guiding me through it. I highly recommend Zita, she is turning my life around!

After years of dieting & bad habits I finally found a program that works. Zita is very supportive & is there to guide you every step.


I am pleased to say that I finally understand how to have a healthy relationship with food & I am enjoying my new way of life

~ Jody ~

To say Zita and metabolic balance has changed my life is an understatement!! I feel empowered with the knowledge I need to change and maintain a healthy lifestyle.


I feel amazing inside and out and the weight loss is a wonderful bonus!! Zita is incredibly supportive and knowledgeable, and this is the first time I have easily maintained my lifestyle change!
