I decided to work with women over 25 as 99% of my client base fitted that market anyway so it made sense to provide a personal and group fitness solution to help them achieve their goals, whether those goals are weight loss, fat loss, improved fitness levels, more energy, better eating habits etc.
Every woman I work with, who follows my 7-step approach to health and fitness, has achieved positive results, most life-changing. Plus, it’s not only about their results, but the knock-on effect it has on their friends and family. Families are then eating healthier, supporting one another, spurring each other on to exercise and keep active. It is great to see. I am just the catalyst that achieves this end result.
The majority of women I work with NEVER return to their bad eating habits. They now realise that their new life is fantastic and is actually not too difficult to sustain. Eating healthy foods becomes a way of life. Exercising for only 12 minutes three times a week is very easy to fit into a busy schedule, especially those with kids and hectic jobs. The ‘I’m too busy’ excuse is no longer relevant.
You see, I don’t believe in diets. 95% of diets never work in the long-term. How often have you been on a diet only to pile the weight back on – and more – once you return to normal eating? The old yo-yo effect.
I don’t know about you but I couldn’t be bothered about whether it’s a green or red day, or if I’m having 5 syns or 200 calories of fat. Why go to the hassle of weighing food? The whole diet industry frustrates me.
What can you do instead then?
Make a list of all food items that are healthy. Then, make a list of all food items that are unhealthy. You now have two lists. When you next go to the supermarket, or local market, choose 90-95% of the foods from the healthy list and 5-10% of the foods from the unhealthy list, and make these your treat foods. This works perfectly for a healthy, sustainable lifestyle. No dieting ever again.
To make a real difference to your health, try a 5-week detox cutting out the allergy-type food groups such as wheat, gluten, dairy, sugar, caffeine and alcohol. Replace all of these with alternatives. You will notice a massive difference to your health. Then do the 90-10 principle (or 80-20 if that works better).
Look at these results. This is a client who has just completed my 5-week detox and exercise programme. Bearing in mind, she wasn’t too much overweight to start with.
- 7lbs weight loss and 2.3% body fat reduction;
- Increased water intake;
- Over 3 inches from her waist and hips;
- Slower resting heart rate meaning more efficient heart and lungs;
- Quicker recovery from activity;
- Improved BMI;
- Stronger in upper body and improved flexibility;
- Better overall fitness;
- Metabolically younger by over 6 years!
People will notice a difference in you. You deserve it. Do you want these results?
Luckily, I have already written healthy and unhealthy food lists, meal plans and recipe books so you don’t have to. Follow my plan and similar, or better, results will be yours.
