Welcome to Natbasma.com! I am very happy that you’re taking the time to visit my website. So, thank you!
Who am I? My name is Nathalie Basma- nutritionist, life coach, well-being advocate, lover of delicious food, and fitness enthusiast.
I used to be morbidly obese, yes, a solid 150 kilos (350 pounds) and I have managed to lose the weight over the years by incorporating a healthy and a more active lifestyle. I often get asked about my workouts. I love intense weight training, tennis, Zumba and outdoor activities (when the weather permits). I absolutely love to cook and in the past years, I transformed my non-healthy cooking lifestyle to one that is simply healthy and delicious. I absolutely love to explore various parts of the world and traveling goes hand in hand with nutrition and a healthy lifestyle.
What started as my personal journey in 2013 has now evolved into a life-long mission to help the global community take control of how they feel every day. I’m on a never-ending quest to learn emerging science behind nutrition and share it with you in simple ways that make sense and more importantly, make a difference in how you move through life.
So, I want to say congratulations to you, right now. You’ve made it and you’re ready to take the first step towards a healthier YOU. My goal is to empower you to live whole, eat well, and feel amazing.
