“The programme was excellent; I found it a lot easier than I thought it would be. You go into ketosis after three days – and when you’re in ketosis, you don’t feel any hunger. I’m really happy with the results and have kept the weight off since.

The programme re-educates you about food; now I really enjoy good food, and have learnt how to cook well and experiment. It really has had an impact on my life. I used to be on a lot of medication for health reasons, but since I’ve lost the weight, the medication has been reduced. My blood pressure is down, my cholesterol is down, and I’m so much happier.

There’s a real feel good factor, especially when people comment on how much weight you’ve lost.”
