Weight loss author’s named award finalist

BIRRONG author and founder of weight loss company ‘Rashaqa by May’, May Zaki has been named as a finalist for a 2021 AusMumpreneur Award in the Coach of the Year and Multicultural Business Excellence categories.

May has bagged many achievements since arriving in Australia several years ago and is now a certified professional in weight management, sports and exercise nutrition and children nutrition, a certified life coach, NLP Practitioner and a Certified Naturopath.
Her journey towards her company started when life as a busy wife and a mum of three boys took a toll on her health.
To regain herself, she devised a healthy eating plan and is now on a mission towards letting mums know how easy it is to lose weight for good, with no strict diets or spending hours in the gym nor wasting money on ineffective pills.
After her first book, ‘Mind over Tummy: How to finally win that battle with the scale’, quickly made its way onto best-seller lists in the US and UK last year, she feels her destiny is to keep helping all mums.
“I am homeschooling my three sons and try to see the lockdown as an opportunity to connect more with them,” she said.
“You’ve got to look for the positives and don’t underestimate the power of small steps because they do add up in the end, helping you to achieve anything.”
Award winners will be announced on September 17.
