“The world as we have created it is a process of our thinking. It cannot be changed without changing our thinking.” Albert Einstein

Lighten Your Plate is about building a lifestyle that fits you, a lifestyle where you reach your goals. It is about creating your best possible you, in which you feel good about yourself while doing the things that truly fulfill you.

Changing the way we think, live, work, love, move and eat are some of the hardest challenges we may take on in our lives. Of course there are plenty of self-help books, but have any worked for you longer then it took to read them?

A Different Approach

Margreet Adriani - Professional Coach for Lasting Lifestyle Changes at Lighten Your Plate

Hi, I’m Margreet Adriani, I started Lighten Your Plate. I believe there is one consistent and that is: “change”.

Have you noticed that you constantly adapt, at times feel stuck or feel like you have to start over? How can you create a life that fulfills you and where you feel in charge?

As a professional coach, I work with you at a deep level where you realize what is most important to you. I believe you have all the answers in you, but that sometimes we need more time and a listening ear to discover what those answers are.

This time will be different because you try a different approach. You have a person who has your back at all times. You can see the light at the end of the tunnel, your confidence will grow, and you know you have it in you.

Besides being a professional coach, I am a certified values coach and personal trainer and will walk with you when you would like to create lasting changes.

With You, All The Way
