About Fiona

Welcome! I’m Fiona Halar. A vegan nutritionist, an accredited exercise scientist and personal trainer.

I love busting nutrition and fitness myths, and sharing my passion for health with others.

As a vegan health coach, my goal is to help you lead a healthier lifestyle and feel your best with nutrition, exercise and lifestyle advice, motivation and support.

I believe that what goes into your body has a profound effect on your health, our planet and all who inhabit it. That’s why I’m passionate about advocating a plant-based lifestyle, and I’m committed to helping others live ecologically sustainable and compassionate lives.

I wasn’t always passionate about leading a healthy lifestyle.

I used to work in the corporate world. I lived a life of excess. I used to work hard and played hard. I was overweight, and I very rarely got enough sleep or rest. My job was stressful. My diet was bad. I used to go out a lot and binge drink.

I thought I was invincible, but eventually, my health deteriorated. My frustration grew as I battled chronic illness and fatigue. I had some good days, but mostly I was exhausted. I couldn’t work anymore.

I tried many different conventional and alternative therapies. In the end, it was my total commitment to living a natural, vegan lifestyle, which incorporated yoga, meditation and exercise that helped me heal. I also discovered my real passion—helping others discover their innate ability to thrive on a whole foods plant-based (vegan) diet.
