The genesis of Smart and Light
Smart and Light was born in 2004. Its designer, Sophie Reverdi, passionate about Grande Cuisine, healthy nutrition and human potential, dreamed of being able to offer to her clients the unique combination of two essential and winning approaches:
– Learning about fabulous, healthy and natural cuisine, which can be eaten in unlimited quantities … and
– Tailor-made support, filled with kindness, respect, stimulation and love.
This improbable bet, fortunately was revealed to Sophie Reverdi, after 15 years of specialized studies and assiduous research, just after her encounter in 2001 with Doctor Albert Chocron, a Parisian nutritionist of international renown, who revealed her and taught her his methodology and vision, particularly well adapted to the psychology of overweight and obese people, and trains her in his practice. The sharp vision and practice of Albert Chocron, included a form of therapeutic education, which Sophie Reverdi intuitively felt as an innovative and revolutionary practice, and which turns out today to be the best possible approach to lose weight intelligently, healthily and without frustration.
Thousands of participants around the world have for 15 years been able to benefit from it, achieve their goals, regain happiness, serenity and above all, have become autonomous in managing their weight.
The philosophy of the program is simple and effective: “Love and good food”
Being accompanied in your journey of transformation by a kind and loving coach , who is dedicated to you, and guides you with humanity and gentleness, step by step during your journey, stimulates you, teaches you a lot of essential concepts, strengthens your self-confidence, puts you back on track, a bit like a mom or like a respectful guide whom you can contact every day, and who will be by your side at each stage of the program, this is the first asset. The love that emerges from the bond you have forged with your coach, allows you to feel yourself more fully, to find your marks, to start believing in yourself and love yourself again, and that changes everything.
The second advantage is that:
Without hunger or frustration, since you are going to discover a delicious new cuisine full of common sense, which you can eat without limitation and as many times a day as you want, it will be almost impossible for you to fail to change your habits . You will then experience the joy of a new adventure towards the new you, in serenity, strength and the certainty of success. Our goal is to bring you gently towards this change, which will also allow you to become independent and your own slimming coach for life.
