Who are the target audience?
Our readers are savvy females, aged (in particular) 35 – 55, They can be single or married with kids. They are fed up with yo-yo dieting. They want to lose those last 5-10 kg once and for all. They have put in a huge amount of effort into losing weight but they’re frustrated, overwhelmed, procrastinating and sabotaging themselves, but want it to work so badly and feels like they’re doing everything 'right' and tried everything they can think of, but it all seems like such a struggle. They’ve had temporary success with short term diets but still not seeing the long lasting results they really desire since they always gain all the weight right back. They’re worried that they don’t have anymore willpower and that if they don’t find a solution they might have to spend the rest of their lives in the cycle of yo-yo dieting, or worse, give up altogether and stay overweight, tired, feeling old forever and that terrifies them.
On an emotional level, they are uncomfortable and have very little self confidence when it comes to themselves; their emotions and their health, even though they are successful as a mother, wife and in their career. They are exhausted from always having to do what they ‘should” instead of what they want and suffer huge guilt that they’re never good enough for the people they love the most even though they do everything in their power to make them happy.
They are looking for enrichment, mind and body nourishment, information, relaxation and inspiration. They want to regain their energy and self confidence; look better in clothes; feel better in their body; have energy and patience with their kids; improve relationships with their husbands; travel regularly; live in an inspiring, hassle-free home and rediscover themselves.

The short answer is no. The long answer is that your content is designed to showcase you as an expert in your field, it is where you engage with our readers and build trust, we include your name and business so that readers can search for you online if they wish to know more.
