Weight loss need not involve giving up on your favourites

Weight loss need not involve giving up on your favourites

This week I wanted to share Mina’s inspirational story. Mina lost weight while eating her favourite foods, including traditional meals like curries, roti, rice and snacks like Bombay Mix.

She has kindly shared her experience in an interview, what she went through and how she benefited from my course.

Mina, who is 65 years old, had lost her husband. This was a difficult period for her, which led to comfort eating and consequently she put on weight.

She had been wanting to lose this weight for years. One of her biggest problems was that she wanted to lose weight whilst being able to enjoy her traditional foods but just didn’t know how to do so and what portions of foods to have. Most popular diets do not cater to allow an Indian diet and therefore she made no progress when trying them. Maybe, you too feel restricted by these quick fix diets, as you can't eat the same meals as your family.

Mina even went all the way back to India many years ago, in search of a solution by visiting health farm and looking for an Indian dietician. After seven years of trying different diets such as weight watchers and slimming world without seeing results, Mina joined my 28 Day Healthy Habits Programme.

Mina is so grateful to have joined as she was able to save both time and money, as she no longer had to travel to India or try different unsustainable diets to lose weight.
