In my first round of the protocol, I lost 17.1kgs, from a starting weight of 85.8kgs. I found the structure and guidelines very easy to follow. I began to sleep better, I had more energy and my skin cleared up. I am so happy maintaining my current weight of 68.7kgs. My clothes fit me again, and during the protocol I identified a number of foods that I had been eating on a daily basis that just do not agree with me. This knowledge has meant I can avoid those foods and no longer suffer with daily bloat and an upset stomach. The support was amazing. I followed the dedicated protocol Facebook page and found an accountability partner on there who I messaged daily for encouragement and support. Having someone to connect with daily who was going through the same process definitely helped me to succeed. During this time I was invited to several events including hens’ nights, Christmas parties and my best friend’s wedding. But I was not willing to trade my new found health and happiness by straying, so I was prepared and ate before I went to the events. If friends asked to go out to dinner, I suggested a picnic and brought foods I could enjoy. I didn’t miss out on anything! I have more confidence and don’t feel a need to be strict on myself – the healthy foods I enjoy are good for my body, delicious, and I no longer need to calorie count or train myself into the ground. I have just started hot yoga and now enjoy meditation. I am much calmer, healthier and happier since completing the Fat Loss Protocol. I am so thankful for this program. It has truly changed my life.
