It can happen to anyone – even a fitness industry expert!
Having worked in the industry for so long and knowing what to eat, I was devastated with myself when I developed a weight problem in my thirties. I tried every trick in the book: countless personal trainers, coaches, every diet and program going but only ended up a serial dieter that typically yoyos. I did have discipline and motivation but that weight just kept coming back on. Why? Because I love food! And I was time poor, a busy mum with a career, juggling like the rest of us.
With each decade I went up a size in clothing. What was even worse; I had no excuse as I ‘knew’ what to do.
Enter stage left: guilt.
Enter stage right: helplessness.
Accepting the weight gain
So I settled into my forties, kidding myself into believing that it was simply the age and stage of life I was in and that I would just have to accept that, consoling myself with platitudes such as ‘I’m not too bad’. Then I invested in several kaftans and went regularly to the hair and nail salon to make myself feel better.
But deep down I was dissatisfied.
My health was suffering too, with high cholesterol, sleep apnea and high blood pressure mounting.
The Intermittent Fasting discovery
Then I ran into my brother-in-law Mark. I had seen him only three months prior and he was literally half the size! He had been doing a form of intermittent fasting or a ‘part-time diet’ (only dieting two days per week) and had lost 16 kilos, so I decided to give it a go.
After the first day, I was not sure I could do it again even though it was not really hard to do. But I did. After all, I did know a few things about what to eat to help with hunger. After about 12 weeks into the diet, I had lost six kilos and dropped a dress size.
Feeling motivated, I went to the shopping mall to buy new clothes and whilst there I noticed just how many people were overweight. ‘They must not know about this’ I thought to myself. ‘If they knew they could be doing this too – and it’s so easy! They won’t feel deprived… they just don’t know how!’
The SuperFastDiet seed
The thought stayed with me as I continued on my weight loss journey, eventually losing 30 kilos! I’ve dropped to half my dress size and have maintained my new weight easily, yet it seems to apply this breakthrough technique to everyday life remains a mystery to others.
So many people have said, ‘…but what do I eat on a part-time diet day?’, or ‘I tried it but I couldn’t do it’ that I realised I had to share my knowledge.
The SuperFastDiet Program
So, here it is, the answer to all of your questions. My co-founder, Victoria Black and I have drawn on our weight loss industry experience to devise a program that embraces the phenomenon of intermittent fasting, making it realistic and easy-to-apply for the average person.
We’re here to teach you that it’s not just about ‘what to eat’ and when, it’s also about motivation, purpose and a holistic approach to your health and happiness. We believe this is the definitive, ultimate guide… to the whole picture – once and for all. This will be the last diet you will ever go on, as it has been for me, and for the many people we have now coached through this program with amazing success. If it can work for me it will work for you too!
