Miyagi Reviews

“The regular tele sessions with my dietitian were supportive and very helpful. I recommend keeping notes so you get the most out of the sessions. I didn’t use many of the options available on the app- just some recipes and guidelines suggested by my dietitian. I also enjoyed the Facebook sessions by Dr Ross Walker and the dietitians. Its confusing at first- a number of different programs are linked to the Miyagi system and there are lots of different tools to try. Stick with it and find what works for you!”

“This program gives your the opportunity to take control of your health and ownership for your decisions . It is very supportive with a weekly meeting with a dietitian. It has great knowledgeable information and recepies. A awesome Facebook group and video links to a heart specialist. There is no magic pill to good health choices you get out what you put in. Since I joined in February I have lost 6kg. Dropped 5 cm around my waist . Reduced blood sugars from 15+ to 10 and blood pressure from 180/120 to 136/83 . So at present I’m am more in control of my Diabetes and hypertension. Thank you Miyagi team especially Bronte. Oh and I have introduced plant based foods to my diet thanks to the educational programs.”<See moreSee less

“Miyagi has been one of the best investments I have made. I felt I was heading to an early grave due to an unhealthy lifestyle. Then I saw the Miyagi ad on Facebook. Of course I was apprehensive at first, but after my first phone call with my personal dietitian, I began feeling like someone cared about me and my goals. My dietitian and Miyagi are helping me make good choices and lead a heart smart life that will continue for the rest of my life. After 2.5 months I am eating foods I have never tried before, planning meals, more active, 6kg lighter, lowering my BP, not craving junk food and my chronic knee pain has decreased significantly. I am feeling positive and looking forward to the remainder of my 6 month program and the wins it will bring. Miyagi’s support pages (Facebook), resources and weekly live streams with Cardiologist, Dr Ross Walker all increase my determination to succeed in living a healthy life without restrictive dieting. Thank you, my dietitian and Miyagi.”See moreSee less

“I have tried diets before, fad fixes, consulted dietitians and exercise physiologists. But this is the only program that is achieving real results for me. And results that I feel will be long-lasting. And I believe it is because it is a holistic approach that looks at your individual lifestyle, not just pulling one or two parts out of that to focus on. The program is teaching me lasting skills to manage my weight and health and add years to my life.”

“My lovely dietitian helped me throughout my journey and I couldn’t have asked for a better person to interact with. Her knowledge of all things diet related, her understanding, compassionate way toward me and her beautiful friendly yet professional attitude are second to none. Without her regular calls and encouragement, I honestly don’t think I would have stuck with the program. I knew what I had to do, I just needed to make myself accountable to someone so I would commit 100% until this became my lifestyle. Which I am proud to say it has The thing I like most about this is that it’s not reliant on shakes, or fads of any kind, it’s all just common sense. Which makes it easy to maintain after your program is finished.”See moreSee less

“This program was a big financial outlay for me and I began feeling a little impatient with myself and wanted quick results. But as the weeks have gone on I have found myself encouraged by the weekly calls and the gentle and supportive nudging by my dietitian. I have found her advice practical and useful and she has listened to what is important to me. She has made me feel accountable about the goals I have set without being judgemental when I have not reached them that week. My own mindset and the way I have looked at meal prepping and what situations trigger me to eat has changed in that I am not as focused on losing weight but rather on how to make healthier daily choices on the food I prepare and the exercise I choose. Although I have only managed to lose a few kilos so far I am feeling stronger and more energetic than I have in a while as I’ve taken control of my health journey. I’m mindful of what I put into my mouth and think about the consequences of my behaviours more than I ever have. I find the app modules useful and the strategies and suggestions given by my dietitian particularly helpful. So far so good”See moreSee less

“Since joining in June 2022 I have lost 10kg (I still have a long way to go) but more importantly I am quite pleased with how my relationship with food has changed. The tools available helped me understand how food affects our body and the menu ideas/recipes take the hassle out of thinking of what to have. My dietitian has been there for me (during a very hard time in my life too) offering support and guidance in a professional way without making me feel like I have failed or done something wrong. My food choices now are much healthier and I simply feel better in general. This program is NOT a “diet” it is a new way of life a much healthier way.”See moreSee less

I’m developing healthy lifelong habits and mindset. She always has some goals for me to work on that benefit me individually. I love the community in my life too) on Facebook and I am inspired by the posts. I have learnt a lot from the modules that will benefit me now and into the future.

“If you want shakes, meal plans etc, this is not for you. You may think you know everything there is to know about food and exercise but if you do, why are you here? If you want to make positive changes to your health and wellbeing with a supportive group and dieticians who help guide you. Then come this way. Sure, it’s not cheap but scrub that from your mind, you are here to make changes for life, not for the duration of a diet. I’ve lost weight, lost cms and am in control. I didn’t have any particular health issues but needed to lose weight as I was uncomfortable. It’s all changing and I am happy about that. And I can still have a sausage roll or pizza!”See moreSee less

“My dietitian has been great. She has opened my eyes to not what I was eating but how I should be eating by spreading my protein throughout the day. This advice has curbed my night time hunger and by doing regular 20 mins a day x 5 days a week mixed exercise I have lost 18cm off my torso with only being on the program for 8 weeks. It’s not about the scale number it’s about how fit you feel, how those clothes are fitting. I have tried many a programs over the years however have found this one so much more educational about not what you eat but how you should eat and would highly recommend to give it a go.”See moreSee less

“1.Communication. This was very important to me. I have alot going on in which contributed to not always being able to achieve my goals. My dietitian is a great listener and always suggested ways of breaking down options to help assist in achieving my goals.
2. Trustworthy, honesty, reliable, professional. My dietitian ticked all of these boxes for me. I’ve been able to get back on track with a healthy eating plan. Whilst the exercise has been slower to achieve, it is happening, finally. The most important thing I achieved, was to take time out for myself. Moving house recently, this was such a huge thing to try and do. I welcomed the fortnightly calls from my dietitian who always steered me in the right direction, providing support and resources for the programme to refer to.
3. The Miyagi Healthy App. This was such a user friendly system. I found no problem navigating around it at all. From great recipes, videos, moving scheduled appointments etc, just so easy.
4. I enjoyed the program and love the fact I’m still able to have access to the App and reach out to the team.
5. The Miyagi FB I joined as well and whilst not posting alot here, I did follow the group for some great members advice and their achievements too.
6. Finally, with all the information, support provided, the thing to remember, is, it was up to me to refer to and use it. I’ve completed my program and can say Miyagi certainly excelled in all of the above. They have given me the opportunity to think differently about myself in the way of living a healthier lifestyle and the importance of my own wellbeing, so thank you.”

“Miyagi helped me in my journey to beat Pre Diabeties/Diabetes Type 2 which was affecting my life post 60 years of age, with valued great new recipe planning, a helpful easy to follow exercise program, & support & encouragement from trained professionals. Thank you to all of you especially my Dietician.
I got the big wake up call originally a few years ago when I was blood & glucose tested to get a H Endorsement to drive School buses here I Darwin NT, my blood sugar levels & triglyceride were through the roof, & they do this medical testing to make sure you will not succumb to a diabetic coma or heart attack when you are driving a bus full of school children from A to B….I am certainly glad they do this testing …
Anyway my doctors said I didn’t need metaformin or other statin type drugs & I could fix my high cholesterol, bad blood sugar levels with a careful review of my diet, lifestyle, exercise & bottom line just healthy lifestyle…..
Miyagi gave me valued guidance & great recipe plans, exercise programme & support to achieve great goals in the six months & significantly reduce blood sugar levels, cholesterol levels.
The food I eat is tasty & nutritious, I cook a lot of my own creations & there are some great things I had never considered before advice from a great dietician to help me validate my diet, exercise, lifestyle planning….
If I can do anyone can do it, I recommend Miyagi for your journey out of pain & discomfort, & to live a full & active life like me past your 60s.”

“Although I didn’t lose much weight, I have walked away from this program with extensive knowledge, not only into weight itself, but also my personal medical situation. My dietitian was extremely patient, knowledgeable and invested. If I asked her a question and she didn’t know the answer, she’d research and get back to me. Having kidney stones for the last 13 years, I’ve learnt more from her in a couple of weeks, than the doctors told me. She gave me the space and time to really dig into my personal situation, doctors have never done that. Thank you, my dietitian for your professional and support through my journey”See moreSee less

“My journey with the Heart Smart Miyagi program was life changing. I have gained a wealth of knowledge about healthy eating which i believe has been the biggest key to being motivated enough to keep sticking to my health goals. All other things I had tried in the past didn’t work. I have been able to lower my cholesterol and keep it down. I feel healthier within, no more inflammation, sore joints and bad skin and my IBS after years of pain is finally under control. I don’t feel restricted in my eating I have no cravings for bad food anymore and don’t feel guilty if I do indulge in a treat every now and then. Having your own personal dietician to help with recipes and substitute alternative foods for your old bad habits has been amazing. The check in with your own dietician is great as it also keeps you accountable. My dietician was full of knowledge and very supportive through my journey. It’s been a few months since I completed my program and I am still going strong. Thank you Miyagi and my dietician for changing my life.”See moreSee less

“What was I looking for in this program? I was looking to make healthier choices for myself and my family. My goal was to avoid having chronic illness in my older years and to learn to make healthy choices and habits now to prevent health issues in the future. My family medical history is full of cardiac issues and strokes. We are a family of 4 that tended to eat more junk and take away rather than healthy, nutritious meals because we are time poor and because my mother with early dementia prefers McDonald’s over a salad any day of the week. I needed advice and support in finding ways to help make quick, easy and nutritious choices that my mother would be happy to eat.
Working with my dietitian from Miyagi, we were able to identify that I have high cholesterol as a result of my life choices and have started working together to incorporate a cholesterol lowering diet into our daily meals, increasing my exercise and finding ways to encourage mum to try new foods. As I have a couple of other health issues that I have discussed with my dietitian and mum has mild dementia, we have also discussed foods that would benefit all those conditions and how to incorporate them into my diet. Together, my dietitian and I have started making changes and creating habits. She keeps me accountable with our weekly calls. She suggests ways to keep myself accountable as well. We discuss new recipes and how to use foods I haven’t cooked with before. It’s all made easy with the use of the Healthie app, I can document everything I cook and every time I exercise and Lyndal monitors it and provides suggestions, advice and encouragement on each entry. If I’ve made a choice that could be altered to make it healthier, she will make suggestions to improve my choices on the entry itself or on the next call. The dieticians are human and realistic, so if you’re having a bad week, they don’t make you feel bad for making poor choices but they encourage you to start again as soon as you’re feeling better. As I am a busy shift worker, we also discuss healthy food options for meals and snacks at work while I am time poor. There is also a Facebook page and chat where you can find support from others in the program at the same time and share recipes. It’s very helpful when you’re looking for dinner and don’t know what to eat. There is always something that looks enticing! I am so glad I have started this program. I am learning to look after myself and everyone in my family by improving our diet and lifestyle choices. So if you’re looking for a program to help you make similar choices and changes as we have, that are tailored to you as an individual, your health and your lifestyle, you’re in the right place. Welcome!”

“Hi all. With my time in this program coming to an end I would just like to say how great it was for me. Before I started I had had a pretty crap year with losing my father in law and my own father having a stroke I was surviving on junk food and diabetes tablets I had no care for myself. I then saw this program on Facebook and showed my wife. I thought this may work to get me on track to a better lifestyle.
I had my firs.  call from Lance and we came up with a meal plan that was easy. When I started my blood sugar levels were high teens 18 plus my weight was 110 kilograms,Now after 6 months my blood sugar is 7.1 and my weight is 97.8kilos. I have had no salt since starting and I think I can count on one hand how many times I’ve had junk food. Lance has been absolutely great with me with what I’ve done and what I can now do on my own it’s just great to get the phone call each week to see how I did and what else I can do to all that read this I hope you all do as well as I have just because this is nearly over it’s not going to stop for me but it’s going to help and keep me going on”See moreSee less

“The Miyagi experience was interesting. I was hoping to lose the 10kg I have gained after a brush with breast cancer & a sport injury. Unhappily, I didn’t lose any weight at all. Also, the program confirmed that I am quite diet/nutrition savvy probably after losing around the same weight gain with weight watchers around 15 years ago. My initial blood test confirmed my good nutritional health status with not much to tweak. I thought the weekly call was as helpful and my dietician was helpful & kind. I think I may have done better if the goals we identified were more around weight loss rather than dietary habits. Since completing the program I reflect that I have made a few helpful tweaks around managing my cake/biscuit preference which is helpful and will be a good behaviour change going into my own, unsupported, weight loss plan that I am starting now.”See moreSee less

Since actually starting however, my dietician and I have worked hard to succeed. Goal setting for accountability; weekly videos or information sheets explaining the hows and whys. To date, many kilos lost and confidence that I will continue this plan for the remainder of my life. It works! It’s easy to follow. I am feeling the health benefits, friends tell me I look great.

“My dietician is patient, calm, practical, non judgemental and full of practical suggestions. I have never felt talked down to. She’s like a clever friend who knows how to help, not enable. I’m about halfway into the program and have lost weight and my Dr is thrilled with my cholesterol numbers that have come down significantly. Best of all I feel empowered and not on a diet. For the first time in my life I feel like I’m in control of the food and the decisions around it. I am not being dragged around by the teeth anymore. I make my own decisions and I don’t catastrophise about eating a cupcake or Easter egg anymore. I can keep it in perspective and not let it get out of hand. This has NEVER been my experience before!”

“The Miyagi program is very different to any other “diet” program I have signed up for… that’s because it’s not what I would refer to as a “diet” program. It’s a holistic approach to nutrition and health. Having completed the 6 months with my dietitian, I am in a much healthier place with regard to my HbA1c, LDL cholesterol, blood pressure, and overall energy levels. I originally signed up with the goal of weight loss but found that this goal became less important the more I focussed on my overall health. I have lost weight but more importantly my health has improved beyond what I thought possible. It’s amazing how making what seem like little changes to your eating and activity can have such significant effects.
If you’re looking for a quick fix weight loss program where everything is dictated for you, this isn’t it. But if you’re looking to learn sustainable healthy habits, change your relationship with food and your body, and feel confident to keep going beyond the program, I would highly recommend Miyagi. You can achieve great things if you are willing to put in the effort and pay attention to what you are being taught.”

“Through working with my dietitian, I am learning so much about my nutrition and what works to sustain my body in all the activities I need to do every day. I am actively renewing my mind from the way that society has programed me in regard to what I should look like and what is beautiful. I have discovered my reasons for dieting and binge eating and the emotions that drive those behaviours. I’ve still got a lot to deal work through in loving my body and respecting what it does for me every day, but at least I have started the process. My dietitian has been a fantastic support for me and is such an encouragement. Thanks for your teaming with me.”See moreSee less

“I am so happy with the program. Starting with getting my blood tests to see if there was anything that we should be concentrating on for my health. My dietitian has very very encouraging. New ideas with each catch up is great to keep up my motivation. When I was having trouble with my knees, she found alternative exercises for me to do. Losing 4 kg so far in my journey is awesome. My clothes are fitting so much better. Miyagi is the program I have been looking for.”

“I joined Miyagi after years of failed diet attempts and just craving and hoping for something better. I was gifted from my dietitian and across each session we slowly changed and/or improved on different areas of my diet and life in general. I learned so much from my time, with little courses and extra bits of information added to the app, and took on the advice from my dietitian for extra reading and websites I could search through. Things I didn’t expect to gain from my time here, was a much more positive view of myself and my life, more confidence and just changed my ideas about weights and the numbers on the scale in general. If you need a life shake-up I highly recommend giving Miyagi a go and be sure to really make use of your time and sessions with them. It’s well worth it!
*I feel like as a side note I should add, my bloods at the end were near perfect and it’s even given me the tools to help bring down my husband’s cholesterol levels too.”

The goal setting is great because it’s always done in a way that is sustainable. All of the resources are informative and help me plan my next step. The app keeps me on track because I use the food and water logging so I can see where I need to improve.

“The support that I receive from my dietitian plays a motivating role in my quest to achieve my program goals. I am seeking to lose some weight, improve my heart health, exercise regularly, eat well and eat appropriate quantities of food – and learn to eat when I feel hungry – to eat only until I feel full and to introduce more Mediterranean foods into my food regime. My dietitian is guiding me positively. Taking time to prepare food and to eat mindfully – that is a focus too! What a great program to be a part of!”

“My dietitian has been great, and has opened my eyes to not what I was eating but how I should be eating by spreading my protein throughout the day. This advice has curbed my night time hunger and by doing regular 20 mins a day x 5 days a week mixed exercise I have lost 18cm off my torso with only being on the program for 8 weeks. It’s not about the scale number it’s about how fit you feel, how those clothes are fitting. I have tried many a programs over the years however have found this one so much more educational about not what you eat but how you should eat and would highly recommend to give it a go.”

I am not where I want to be, but I have been grateful that my directions have been changed, my systems feel better, and I can shake off all the “opinions/fads” about food advice and stay the course with optimism! My dietitian was consistently helpful, answering questions and seeing more positive steps in my week than I did! Encouragement is powerful. Thankyou.”See moreSee less

“I joined this program to improve my health as I move towards my mid 60s. Yes, its not cheap; yes, you have to take responsibility if you want it to work; yes, it is a change in mindset that you need to embrace. The progress you can make towards a healthier lifestyle is well worth the investment. Kirby, my dietitian, encouraged and motivated me in my fortnightly phone sessions to take responsibility, and the resources and the positive approach to nutrition, hydration and exercise were just what I needed to finally overcome years of unsuccessful attempts at weight loss.
My results have been wonderful. Weight loss that makes me feel both emotionally and physically comfortable, blood test results that are now “perfect” and best of all, a complete change in food preferences (not just choices) that are healthy without feeling like I’m missing out. I finally feel in control without any effort.”

“My initial goals were to lose some weight, get more healthy, focus on nutrition, be more active and, most importantly, to be a better role model for my kids and a better partner for my husband. Six months later, I am out jogging almost every afternoon, while hubby and the kids cycle next to me. My family and I are more connected than ever. I have bought aprons for my kids, who now love to help me prepare the fruit and veggies for our meals. I could not be happier. I have not lost significant weight, but instead have found a better and more conscious way of eating, which I’m confident will support weight loss in the long run. Where I initially thought this journey was about weight loss, I have found it instead to be about cultivating life-long healthy habits. I am so grateful to my dietician and coach. Her indelible positivity and absolute faith in me, even when I didn’t have any in myself, has made this experience possible!”See moreSee less

“My journey with the Heart Smart Miyagi program was life changing. I have gained a wealth of knowledge about healthy eating which i believe has been the biggest key to being motivated enough to keep sticking to my health goals. All other things I had tried in the past didn’t work. I have been able to lower my cholesterol and keep it down. I feel healthier within, no more inflammation, sore joints and bad skin and my IBS after years of pain is finally under control. I don’t feel restricted in my eating I have no cravings for bad food anymore and don’t feel guilty if I do indulge in a treat every now and then. Having your own personal dietician to help with recipes and substitute alternative foods for your old bad habits has been amazing. The check in with your own dietician is great as it also keeps you accountable. My dietician was full of knowledge and very supportive through my journey. It’s been a few months since I completed my program and I am still going strong. Thank you Miyagi and my dietitian for changing my life.”See moreSee less

“One of the best decisions I have made in a long time. I have learned so much about food, nutrition and health. I’ve lost a bit of weight, I’m more active, feel a million times better and have not had a migraine since I started looking after myself better. The weekly chats with my dietitian are so good and the tracking app is fabulous. At the start it helps you and your dietitian to see what you are eating and also why. Are you hungry? Bored? Anxious? Habit eating? Your dietitian gives you feedback and helps you to improve your balance on the plate and suggests additions or subtractions for balance. The program is about empowering you as a reasonable person to educate yourself by using the tools offered in the app., via the FB support group and videos and live chats etc. I work full time so joining the live chats is not possible but I can watch them later if I choose to. I have not felt this well in a very long time.”See moreSee less

“Hi there. I have been using Miyagi since January 2023. My daughter is getting married in November this year, l guess that was a driving force in me wanting to make changes in my life. (I also saw a cardiologist for the first time in January 2023.)
My expectations were to lead a healthier life, eating better and to increase exercise in my daily life.
I cannot thank my dietitian enough! Each week we discuss ‘wins’ and ‘challenges’, that in the past, have affected me in achieving my goals. I look forward to each Wednesday afternoon chat, to re-set (if required), and to set goals for the week ahead. My dietitian has an extraordinary knowledge and ability to share that knowledge with me. I feel incredibly comfortable asking questions and l always feel heard and understood.
To date, I have increased my water intake, l walk (almost) daily, l’ve committed to a weekly Zumba session, l now play golf weekly too! I’ve also introduced yoga and pilates to my exercise regime. I feel so good about myself and the journey l am on. I have lost weight, which is great, but it’s not the main factor driving me. I have more energy and am very excited for the remainder of my time with Miyagi. I believe that the ‘lifelong’ lessons l am learning on this program will be with me for life. Thanks so much to my dietitian!”

“This program has been such a positive experience for me. Blood tests at the start of the program revealed a number of health concerns which, to be honest, scared me but with the support of my weekly dietitian consultation, I was able to take control of my health and significantly improve some quite worrying blood test results. My dietitian was supportive, positive and encouraging and she taught me so much about how good food choices can improve my health. This program teaches you that weight loss diets do not work. The only thing that truly works is choosing to eat healthy foods and meals that everyone in the family can eat. The program also got me moving! I used to be very sedentary and this was a big contributor to feeling always tired and lethargic. After 26 weeks of setting weekly goals of good eating and exercise, I have slowly lost weight, decreased my cholesterol and blood sugar levels, increased my energy levels and I feel so much healthier and in control. With the tools that she has taught me, along with the fantastic information provided in the app and Facebook support, I am confident that I will continue heading towards a health weight range and improving my overall health. Thank you, my champion dietitian, for your support and guidance. I am so glad that I signed up for this program. It works!!”See moreSee less

“My experience with the program has been good. The weekly sessions act as a reminder and keep me focused on small steps. Most of it seems to come from me – the goals, which I suppose is a good thing, but I find it hard to come up with new goals each week. I am definitely healthier, with a more balanced diet. In many ways we all know what we should be doing diet wise, but the weekly sessions are a terrific way to stay on track. I have not lost weight, but that was not my goal. I certainly do not crave chocolate and ice cream any more, and have alternatives when necessary.”

“My experience with Miyagi was really positive. I mainly joined because I’m Diabetic and I wanted to get my blood sugar under control and I have done that and lost almost 10kg in the process. The best thing I learned through Miyagi was to change my bad habit. I completely changed my diet, and started drinking lots of water, I got a fitbit and started counting my steps each day and monitoring my sleep patterns. The weight seemed to drop slowly, but it kept dropping, and I just get the feeling that I wont put it back on and I feel real confident that I wont go back to my old bad habits because I plan to keep my sugar levels under control, so the weight will keep dropping till I reach my ideal weight and that’s my new goal, to get below 80kg and to stay there.
Thanks Miyagi, you really changed my life for the better.”
