The people we entrusted to protect us have let us down.

Ill incentivised governments, big food and bad pharma who punt pointless drugs, addictive sugar and carb-loaded foods have left all of us powerless over our excess weight and chronic health conditions.
From healthy fibre to fat, you’ve been lied to and we know the truth.

Shelley keeps the ship in shape.

I saw food as a comfort, I ate whenever I was emotional and at that time in my life that was everyday. Once I had eaten it made me feel gross and embarrassed. I'm happier, mentally and physically. I can exercise, run around with my kids and I feel like I have turned back into my younger self. I no longer feel old and frumpy. I feel strong and beautiful. I also stopped taking some of the medication I was on, as my body was eating well, and I didn't need meds to help my body survive anymore. I couldn't have done this without RMR by my side. Jonno and his team are amazing. I also had a lot of support from my family. THANK YOU for changing my life RMR.

To date I have lost 20.5kg and 32cm around my waist. My feet and legs don’t hurt anymore, and I have so much energy. My mental health is so much better, I was so depressed before RMR and now it feels like the dark cloud has been lifted. I have a better relationship with food and I don’t see food as a crutch anymore when life gets me down

I started at 115kg’s and have lost 40kgs in 10 months, all while being bed bound after surgery and unable to move. My doctors are thrilled by my progress and the coaching work has given me a much more positive outlook on life and my future. If you're the kind of person who can see your health failing, feel helpless about how to make a change and overwhelmed at all the information out there and not sure where to turn then this program is the solution for you.
Chloe Buckland, 44, Oranjezicht, Cape Town, Lost 40kg
I started to feel amazing, never in my life had I felt like this, it was completely unknown to me. I had and still have more energy than I have ever had. I used to struggle with dry skin, that just disappeared and it’s thanks to Banting too. I also felt incredibly healthy and my sinus disappeared as well. I began to exercise more (because now I could) and my physique began to change drastically. I was becoming lean and looked really good. I couldn’t believe what was happening to me and it just got better and better. Today I am happier, healthier and fitter than I have ever been my whole life and it’s all thanks to the Real Meal Revolution!

Before this, after 14:00 in the afternoons I couldn’t work. I was dragging myself through the day. I was of no good use for anybody, not for the economy, my friends or my family. Came 17:00 the fridge and the couch were my 2 best friends. I dropped 37kg from my heaviest to my lightest. I lost all my stomach problems. I regained my confidence. No, spikes in moods and energy levels. Bright, alert and fully functional all the time. I feel FANTASTIC. I became alive. I’m enjoying my work, my friends and most importantly my family. I’m even up every day at 05:00, without setting an alarm. Other programs don't take away fat and they don’t fix your head. This program is a lifestyle that makes you healthy, mentally and physically. Once you start reaping the benefits you will not go back.
