I was immediately drawn to this as it was email based, meaning that I didn't have to go anywhere for the appointments, and I also got support through youtube videos and messages.
There are a few different package options to choose from. I chose the six week package as I just needed some motivation and encouragement before the 10k race on the first of June. I knew I was eating too many biscuits, and it was good to be held accountable.
Rebecca was great at touching base every week to see how I was getting on, as well as providing exercise ideas, recipes and working on my own goals and dreams.
I actually have noticed a change after these six weeks- I guess I can tell myself that something is bad for me, whether it be too much sugar or a negative mindset, but when someone else shows you how to change things it can be quite liberating. I also discovered how much of a workout yoga can be!
I also found it great to take time out every week to focus on me and my goals. I never felt like I was struggling, and I have come away with some new meal and snack ideas that the whole family love as well. No shakes, pills, expensive workout equipment- this is a programme that is designed to fit in with your lifestyle.
So- on to the results. My main focus for this six week package was not about weight loss, but more about figuring out the best nutrition for my body. However, I will still pleasantly surprised at some of the results! I did not take before and after photos, but we did keep track of measurements.
|Fat free mass||35.1kg||36.5kg||1.4kg|
|Body fat Percentage||30%||26%||4%|
|Resting metabolic rate||1129kcal||1164kcal||35kcal|
Usually I only focus on the scale- so to see how much my body changed without having too much difference in weight has made me realise something.
I know it sounds cheesy but it is true! So often I have let the number on the scale dictate my mood for the day. Now I have to remember:
