Kind words from my clients
I am so passionate about healthy food. Hearing that I have helped make a difference for my clients really makes my day!
The best of all for me is that my blood sugar levels which have always been high have now reached the lowest level and I feel like a new woman with a zest for life again and the energy to match it.
One morning whilst at work, I saw an advertisement in the local community centre for a talk free talk on in Bray Library on the 8th March 2019 from 11-12 and the heading was “Are you addicted to Sugar”. I thought yes I will go along to that and see what’s this about. Once I heard… Ilona’s talk at the library I could tick every box and went yes I am addicted and thought need to do something about this as I am also Type 2 diabetic with very poor sugar control. I took part in her 2-week sugar-free challenge with a small group of 5 other people. Once I knew I was seriously addicted to sugar I knew the only way for me to begin was to go “cold turkey” and not have any sugar at all. And it actually worked for me. Before, I used to go into Deals on my lunch break and buy the large bag of red toffets and have them almost gone before I returned to work and if they didn’t have them the disappointment was too much so I would just buy whatever large bag of sweets they had. Today I can walk into the shop and not even think about buying them and if I see them there (which of course they are always there now) I think I don’t need you anymore and it doesn’t bother me. Having been in every weight loss programme around over the last 30 years I loved the fact that this little group had no weigh-in or calorie counting and I have managed to lose weight. Even though I don’t weigh myself I know I have lost weight as my clothes are too big and I was able to buy a new pair of jeans the other day in a size I haven’t been able to fit in since before I was pregnant (which is a long time ago). However, for me the best of all is that for the last number of years my blood sugar levels have always been high 12-16 have now reached the lowest level 6 which is within range and I feel like a new woman with a zest for life again and the energy to match it. I would highly recommend Ilona because she actually listens to you and makes you feel very comfortable and that it is never too late to regain control over your body and what you put into it.

Not just for losing weight, but for a healthier lifestyle
Just finished Ilona’s 4 week course. Really enjoyed this from the very start when she took us through what exactly each food group does and how these work with (or against) our internal organs. Ilona explained this is a very interesting, sometimes humorous way. She encouraged the group to engage with her and each other.… Each week she built on the information she provided. We were given recipes and handouts of the important things, in case we forgot. The course finished with a trip to the supermarket where we closely examined all the food labels, myths around “Nutritional” food items on the shelves and dispelled any illusions around “Fat Free” options. I cannot recommend this highly enough, not just for those needing to lose weight, it’s for anyone looking for a healthier lifestyle. Well done Ilona and many thanks.

I can highly recommend Ilona’s courses
Last year I took part in Ilona’s 4-week Healthy Eating and Lifestyle group. I am struggling my whole life with food allergies and learned a lot of new information to make better choices and influence my daily life. It was a small group, which made it easy to ask questions and go into more details.… Ilona was very supportive of all of us and her up to date knowledge was a huge help. I didn’t hesitate to join her online program this January, with even more information and recipes to get into healthy habits and to try new things. It was good to see how we got into the spirit of sharing our experience about cooking and planning ahead. Again Ilona was there to support us all the way and to give us information and answer questions. I can highly recommend Ilona’s courses and will keep working with her in the future.

Much more energy and less digestive issues
I had been looking for a Nutritionist online to help me with the complex digestive issues I was experiencing and I came across Ilona on her facebook page. The name Eat Right for You really resonated with me as I felt I needed a plan specifically for my needs and issues with food and digestion.… I had seen a Nutritionist before but didn’t feel I got enough advice specifically for my needs and I was still having digestive issues. Ilona was great and took plenty of time to listen, as I have a lot of health conditions. She then took plenty of time to explain to me what was going on in my body and this helped me to understand what she was suggesting for me to do. As I am very busy I didn’t have much time to implement all of her recommendations, but we just went back over everything and focused on a few small things to begin with. Ilona made sure that I was happy with all her suggestions first before she wrote a clear plan which I could follow. Some of the recommendations were so simple but made a huge difference, for example to do my shopping on-line. This helped me so much as I didn’t have the time or energy to get the supermarket shop every week. She also suggested cooking big batches and freezing them so I could have something healthy and tasty when I came in from work rather than grabbing something unhealthy when I was tired and didn’t have the energy to cook. I have definitely much more energy and less digestive issues. Ilona gave me a very clear and structured diet which I am now following and it is definitely helping to heal my gut problems although I know it will take more time. She gave me lots of tips to try different ways of helping my digestion after researching which supplements I could take and working on helping to eat more mindfully. Ilona was so patient and supportive, and she also always responded when I had questions in between our session. She was so supportive and motivating throughout the whole time, especially when I felt like quitting because a lot of things were happening in my life. There are still a lot of health issues that I need to tackle, but I’m happy for now to stick to this routine for the next 3 months. I am so happy I found Ilona, as she really made a difference to my life. Show more “Much more energy and less digestive issues”
After just two weeks I had already noticed a big change in my energy levels
I came to see Ilona for a 20 min free chat, as I have high cholesterol but cannot tolerate the medication. I knew I had to do something regarding my diet, I just didn’t know where to start. I signed up for a nine week programme. At the first session Ilona suggested a few small… changes for each meal, which I applied. After the first two weeks I had already noticed a big change in my energy levels which motivated me to pursue a lot of things that I had kept putting on hold. Ilona always gave practical tips and recipes which were always easy to carry out. I never felt hungry or deprived during the whole programme. I also managed to get rid of my cravings for crisps and cheese, which wasn’t even difficult. I feel so much better now that my energy levels and sleep pattern have improved far beyond my expectations. I would highly recommend Ilona she really listens and her suggestions are doable.

This is like having a personal trainer
This is like having a personal trainer – delighted and happy to have started the plan. It’s great having the contact on a daily basis. (1 week into the online program)
I’ve lost 5lbs, am not as exhausted and my thinking is much clearer!
Loving the recipes and my partner (that doesn’t eat veg) loves them too. The mushroom lasagne went down really well with my vegan friend. The Moroccan chicken was delicious and the lamb & chickpea curry is amazing. I made double the quantity for the freezer. I find the 16 hour fasting easy to do and… usually only have 2 main meals and 1-2 snacks. I’ve lost 5lbs, am not as exhausted, my thinking is much clearer and I’m walking briskly for 40 min a day too!

I have lost kilos and centimetres and feel great!
I am really enjoying the New Year New You programme with Ilona. I find that the combination of recipes and food tips, scientific information, practical targeted advice and motivational tips make it easy to change my eating habits in the long term. I have changed the way that I eat, and even more important, I… am changing my attitude to food and nutrition. I am also enjoying my food, never have to feel hungry, and, with a little bit of planning, can make healthy eating fit into my super-busy life. I have lost kilos and centimetres and feel great. What’s not to like! Show more “I have lost kilos and centimetres and feel great!”
Helped me to improve my digestion and energy levels
I would highly recommend Ilona Madden’s nutritional guidance. She was very helpful and provided me a lot of information. I am vegan and she took that into consideration and helped me to improve my digestion and energy levels a lot, for which I am very grateful. She made sure to follow up and see how… I was getting on and to offer me any further help & tips necessary. Ilona has a professional manner, a lovely energy and a kind approach to dealing with clients! Show more “Helped me to improve my digestion and energy levels”
Possibly the best thing I could ever have done!
Going to Ilona and her company Right Food 4U was possibly the best thing I could ever have done! Ilona has helped me to change my eating habits which has not only helped me to get my sense of smell and taste back but it has also made me feel great! Ilona is a fantastic… role model, her advice is practical and effective and investing in myself and my body has been the best investment that I could have ever made! Thank you Ilona!
