I started on Love Food when I returned to work from maternity leave. Having gained 18.5 kilos during my pregnancy I hadn’t been able to shift those last 8kilos due to skipping meals, large portion sizes, lack of sleep and exercise.
The first couple of weeks were hard, however I found that by having the flexibility to eat (within reason) on the weekends your own food when you’re out and about it made the Love Food program much easier to stick to. The weight starting dropping off and within 3 months I had lost 10 kilos. Even though I am a fussy eater I found the food delicious, fresh and healthy and it provided me with lots of energy even though I wasn’t getting much sleep through the nights dealing with a teething baby. I never felt tired as I was eating the right foods and my skin started to improve.
The one thing that Love Food has taught me is that regular meals and portion control is key to the success of maintaining the weight loss. It’s now been 3 months since I’ve stopped the program and I have been able to maintain the weight loss as it’s a lifestyle not a diet.
Thank you Love Food for helping me achieve my goal of losing the baby weight! Having yoyo dieted most of my adult life I found that this was the best way to lose the weight sensibly and without a lot of effort. You just need to be consistent and not go overboard on the weekends and within no time you will achieve results.
