What’s It All About?
My name is Naomi Ferstera and I am an exercise physiologist/exercise scientist, lecturer and nutritionist. I have two Bachelor degrees, Certificate IVs in Fitness and Training & Assessing and I’m in the middle of my Masters in Human Nutrition. I’ve been in the health and fitness industry for over 15 years and currently run my own exercise physiology business.
My years of experience and knowledge of the latest research have led me to where I am today: a passionate advocate for Low Carbohydrate, High Fat (LCHF) diets and High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT). I’ve seen the success that the combination of these two approaches brings again and again. If you’re tired of the dieting roundabout and are serious about getting healthy, losing weight and keeping it off, then you need to be doing a combination of LCHF and HIIT. I offer two pathways to transforming your health:
1. My Eat Fat Get Fit Program. For 8 weeks you will be challenged to change your life with weekly motivational emails, menus, exercise programs, online education and more.

Over the years I have seen all the fads, all the diets, all the hype and have wondered if I’d ever find the real truth about nutrition and exercise. The information is so confusing. That’s why I put together an easy to follow program. No more confusing information and no more fads! So join my Eat Fat Get Fit Program or become a member today and let me show you how I lost all of my pregnancy weight and got into the best shape of my life!
“I had the absolute honour to spend a couple of hours with this lovely lady today who so unselfishly gave me her time,knowledge and foresight after being referred to her by my GP with regard to Cholesterol issues. I can’t thank her enough for explaining things clearly to me. The day she becomes a GP – I will be first in line!!” Mary S
“Naomi I have just looked over your Sprint Training Program and I know you asked me to be honest with you so I will. This book is the truth. All of the information is updated, honest and the only way to teach.
You are a constant inspiration and a great motivator. This comes across in your presentation and I found the workouts easy to understand.” Denny
“Naomi your 12 week challenge was a godsend. I thought I understood the basics of food and nutrition until I read your challenge booklet and I realise how far off the mark I was. It was written in a way that I could understand . It was simple yet it covered the complex content really well. I feel like I have a really solid understanding now and I feel much more in control of my life. I have referred this booklet and challenge to more people than I can count because I know that it will help them like it has help me.” Kate.

What is LCHF?
LCHF sounds like a fad but, in reality, it reflects the way we used to eat prior to the 1960s. Then, in the 1960’s, the low fat diet was introduced and lifestyle diseases have been on the rise ever since. The latest research has also shown that low fat is not conducive to long term weight loss so it’s time to put the low fat diet to bed. LCHF was the diet most people followed prior to the “low fat revolution” and it’s time to return to this way of eating.
- Removing processed carbohydrate
- Increasing unprocessed saturated fat content
- Removing processed polyunsaturated fats/oils
- Ultimately eating an unprocessed diet

Remember, food is to be enjoyed, and that’s a central tenant of my philosophy!
What is HIIT?
Intensity is king! Our body only responds to stimulus and when we train, that stimulus is the intensity. If your weights are too light or your heart rate is too low, you simply will not achieve the results you’re after. After years of listening to people tell me about their lack of results, I am convinced they were not training at the right intensity. HIIT training ensures you will be working hard enough AND you don’t have to do a long session. Short and sweet – perfect for the busy person!
The research is also very clear on the benefits of HIIT. HIIT has been shown to improve fitness quickly and efficiently, whilst keeping people interested and engaged. Cardiovascular fitness offers protection against cardiovascular disease and every year, 33% of all deaths in Australia are due to cardiovascular disease. The latest research has shown that the number 1 risk factor for all-cause mortality (i.e. all reasons for death) is LOW CARDIOVASCULAR FITNESS. This makes HIIT a no-brainer.
