Meet Jodi

Welcome to Guts R Us.  


My name is Jodi Pinker and I am a single mum of one daughter.  I work for a Colorectal Surgeon and this is where my passion for Gut Health began. 


MY STORY PRIOR TO DISCOVERING THE BENEFITS OF GUT HEALTH


I started struggling with my weight during pregnancy.  I put on 32kg during pregnancy and another 28kg after.


I tried every diet, shake, pill known to man. My solution, so I thought, was weight loss surgery. In 2009 I had a laparoscopic banding procedure and I lost 65kg within a year simply by starving myself.  I was so malnourished and sick. 


I maintained my weight loss for at least 3 years until I had the saline fill taken out due to needing surgery for a shoulder injury.  I never had the saline put back in to the extent I had before which meant that I was able to eat food again without being sick.  


In 2012, I developed Chronic Urticaria (Hives) and this never went away.  I had to take Cortisone daily for 5 years and gained a whopping 60kg.  I was back to square one.  Doctors and Specialists could not work out the cause for this. Every test, every trial of drug you could imagine, I had tried.  


I had no idea that my poor gut health was causing this and so many of my health issues. Food intolerance's meant that I was always in pain, always sick and getting very overweight.  My daughter was the same. I was teaching her the same bad habits that I had learnt.  


I was in excruciating pain all over my body.  I was so depressed and I had lost the person I used to be.  All I saw was someone that didn't deserve to live or be loved.  I slept all the time and had zero energy to enjoy my life with my daughter.   


SOMETHING HAD TO CHANGE SO THE ROAD TO RECOVERY BEGAN


I work for a Colorectal Surgeon and I started reading about the science behind gut health, and how it affects our weight, our overall health, and even our mental health. But finding a program that worked was hard. I needed a simple plan, that could fit in with our busy lives, and one that focused on fixing our digestive health. I also spoke to many patients about their ailments and I knew there was a link between our gut health and so many health issues. 


I found a program online and within 4 weeks I had lost 10kg.  Not only that but other things had also improved.  My mood and sleep improved, I was happier than I had been in years. I was full of energy and was having a blast being active and alive again. I have now lost 33kg and the benefits after doing the program below are amazing. 


BENEFITS AFTER DOING THE PROGRAM

  • Reduced pain and inflammation
  • Better quality sleep
  • No more nanna naps wasting my weekends
  • Abundance of energy
  • Hormones are back to normal
  • My confidence is back
  • Feel like I can take on the world and finally live again
  • Happier and healthier


WHERE TO FROM HERE


Building on the foundations I had learnt and further research, myself and Tammy decided to make a new program.  One that had greater variety and flexibility.   But we couldn't stop there, we have now created several programs to suit a whole range of people based on their individual health need.   


A lot of programs fail due to no support and this is why our program is very unique and hugely successful.  

To get the maximum benefits from the program we expect you to message your guide every day with your weight. We can then make the necessary tweaks to maximise your goals.

We are there if you need someone to talk to, if you are struggling, needing advice or simply need a bit of a push (with love of course). We are there to motivate and encourage you and to remind you of your WHY and get you to your goals. 


With the support of my wonderful friend and business partner Tammy, we are sharing this amazing program with others and supporting them every step of the way. 


GREAT FOOD - HAPPY TUMMIES - AMAZING RESULTS! 

I have my life back !!!!










I have energy to burn now.  I now sleep like a baby.  So much happier now and my bad moods have reduced.

Meet Tammy

I’m just a single mum of two, an 18 year old daughter and 13 year old son. They keep me busy. 


Career wise I am a Personal Trainer/Fitness instructor by trade and love my job. In 2012 my career came to a stop to become a full time carer for my son, diagnosed with ADHD, ODD, Anxiety, Mental Health issues among other things. He was only allowed to do partial days at school as I needed to be there for my son. 


In those 6 years, I lost me and everything became about Noah. Looking after myself was at the bottom of my list of things even with all my knowledge of health and wellness. 


I had the knowledge to stay fit and healthy, but I truly wasn't looking after myself. 


My body was telling me I needed to take care of me.  Symptoms of pain started in my stomach.  I was constantly running to the toilet.  This  would go on for the next 5 years.  I saw doctor after doctor and even specialists to rule everything out. I was then diagnosed with IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome).  I tried a few diets but nothing would help with my bowel issues.  


My symptoms ruled my life.  I stopped going out and just stayed home and became a hermit.  Staying home made life a lot less stressful not having to worry about where the toilets were.  I was truly at the end of my tether.  I was ready to give up!


Then one night I stumbled upon a post about resetting your gut health.  Everything mentioned in that post was me.  I had nothing to lose at this point so I messaged my now friend and business partner, Jodi.


She explained how it would all worked and that what was in front of me the whole time was my gut health.  


In August last year I began my journey and I will never look back.  No more afternoon slump, I feel better, I look healthier and now I can now eat foods that you used to not agree with me without the fear of having to run to the toilet. 


Real food eaten the right way.  It doesn’t get any simpler than that.  Now I am back and I am here to help others on their journey.  Back to doing the job I LOVE. LET MY JOURNEY INSPIRE YOU.

Meet Rajwant

Hi my name is Rajwant and I have lost 19kg on the Vegetarian program.  My story began when I stopped looking after myself and my family became my priority.  I thought I had always cooked in a healthy way by being vegetarian but because of my Indian culture I used a lot of the bad oils and ate too much of the yummy Indian food.


When I had gained all my weight, I was happy but not truly happy.  I used to shy away from family photos, photos with my children and most of all photos with my wonderful husband.  


See the photo above, this is one of my favourite photos only taken recently while holidaying over in Sydney where I went to surprise my family before Christmas.  This photo symbolises me letting go of my weight, being free and being truly happy.  I am now in all my photos. (Actually I think I have gone totally the opposite from before haha)


I love Vegetarian food and know how to control my weight and keep it off.  I am now living a 80/20 lifestyle and I feel I am a better wife and better mother because of this program.  I will forever be grateful for finally being free. 


Our program is so adaptable to a family lifestyle.  Why shouldn't we be feeding our children and family what this program has taught me.  We are now all so much happier and healthier.  


Don't be afraid to try something new and trust in the fact that all of us at Guts R Us have started where you are now reading our website.  We will be there for you every step of the way.  We are a passionate team of women wanting to change the lives of others little by little.

Meet Richa

Hi my name is Richa and I started this journey with my health last year.  I used to feel so uncomfortable.  I had no energy and felt so uncomfortable in my own skin. 


I have a beautiful daughter, Myra who is 22 months old and very active and a wonderful husband, Sunny.  My family are my life and I just could not keep up the demands.


All I wanted to do was go shopping and buy that piece of clothing off the rack and be able to wear it with pride.  I was so sad that I couldn't.  Something had to change. 


After doing the gut health program, my life has changed in so many ways.  I am now 15 kg lighter.  I can now play with my daughter all day and not be tired.  I have energy again and it feels amazing.  


The best part is that I can now go shopping with confidence.  I can buy that dress, that top, that outfit and wear it with pride.  


I now want to share my passion with others.  I love helping others feel better about themselves and learning to love themselves.  Nothing gives me more joy than this. 


Let us help you.  There is no time like the present to get started on your journey to better health!

Meet Kaylene

Hi my name is Kaylene. I am 52yrs old, married and I am a stay at home Nanna to two beautiful grandchildren, whom I love dearly and are my absolute world.


After the birth of my second daughter, I became very unwell, extremely sluggish, forgot how to sleep properly , became very depressed and just totally battled in life.    

                                                         

I was diagnosed with Hashimotos disease and autoimmune disorder.  I had no choice but to start on medication prescribed by the doctor to regulate the production of thyroid hormones. The side effects for me on this medication was that I gradually started gaining weight.  I was looking and feeling very puffy.  To make matters worse I then became insulin resistant.  


The inflammation in my body was plentiful, hence making every movement in my body painful, all my joints throbbed and even my insides felt bruised.   


I went to various health practitioners, tried exercise, diet after diet and tried every lotion and potion under the sun to get my weight under control.  I felt that I had exhausted every avenue.  


I started researching on the internet for a solution to my issues.  I finally came across a lot of information that focused on gut health.  I started looking at various ways of repairing my gut health and the common denominator was food. 


I changed the way I ate and soon I started to feel the benefits within a week.  My energy began to come back.   I could actually sleep at night with out a sleep aid.  The soreness in my joints lessened and the throbbing all over my body began to ease to where I felt pain free.  I started to lose weight and it was amazing to be honest.   


I am now enjoy being able to play with my little grand children with out suffering. I love having so much more energy, it is truly amazing .  


The key benefits for me with this program of Guts R Us  has been 


  • The energy I have gained
  • Sleeping so much better
  • Wake up feeling happy and ready to seize the day.
  • No more mood swings.
  • No more bloating as I know what foods trigger that response.
  • Feeling confident
  • Able to wear smaller sizes                                                                                                                 

I have now lost 18kg and have gone from a size 18/20 to now a size 14.  Without repairing my gut health, none of the above would have been possible.  We need to educate people in the importance of good gut health so that we can rid the world of a lot of diseases and also educate our children to live a long and healthy life.
