Story by Deni Archer

The road to fitness isn’t always easy

Calorie-Conscious

Clayton Robbertze woke up one day and realised he wanted to get in shape. This would entail losing a few kilograms though, and so his journey to health and vitality began. But it wasn’t an easy one: “I found it tough to manage the dieting aspect of losing weight. I was a busy man, and it was hard work to eat well while also counting my calories everyday,” says Clayton. It was through this experience that Clayton eventually ended up founding Calorie Conscious - a business that has tasked itself with the doing the hard work for busy people who don’t want to spend the time required to ensure they are eating a balanced, healthy low-fat diet.

Brother and sister team take care of your diet

The process starts with a period of training for the new clients on how to eat right in terms of calorie intake. Then an assessment is undertaken and meal plans are developed specific to each client’s needs, and these meals are delivered to their homes. Clayton’s business partner and chef, Candice, has become adept at making meals with all the necessary dietary requirements.

Counting calories and much more

Calorie Conscious also partner closely with Dr and Mrs Shaw (Dalia Shaw runs Mrs Bread Care) in their endeavour to keep their clients healthy. Clayton describes the partnership as synergistic: “When we met the Shaw’s we realised we had many synergies. Together with their expertise on health and illnesses, we now help a big range of clients with problems ranging from heart disease to diabetes and more.”

Calorie Conscious also has a raw food section, and they aim to use mostly organically grown food, organic chicken, and free range organic eggs. “There is a stigma around raw food - that it’s ‘goat food’,” says Candice. “But done properly it’s so good. I even make a killer raw chocolate mousse!” Their ultimate aim is to go completely organic in all their ingredients.

If eating healthily is trying for you, why not visit Calorie Conscious in Valley View Shopping Centre on Campbell Road in Craigavon, Fourways (Jhb).
