17 Jun Banting means health, with weight loss as a bonus
Ansie Eybers has lost 26kgs Banting and wants to share how with her Real Groups!
Ansie Eybers is a Real Meal Revolution trained, Certified Banting Coach (CBC) who knows what it takes to be a successful Banter! She has lost 26kgs while Banting and wants to help fellow passionate Banters reach their Banting goals. She wants to help them do this by becoming members of her Real Groups. A Real Group is a Banting support group that you can join as either online or face-to-face.
Ansie offers up the following “banter” on her personal Banting journey:
“I was diagnosed with low blood sugar in matric. Upon my diagnosis, I was a given a food list. I was told by a doctor that if I ate only what was on this list, I would never have problems regulating my blood sugar and I would never become fat. As I was still young and naïve; I disregarded his good advice. The list looked very much like the green list in the RMR book, and I wish I had followed it sooner.
However, my Banting journey only began later when I looked after my dad who had Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s, for the last two years of his life. I had then read that Alzheimer’s was also known as type 3 diabetes. I had also read that LCHF was very beneficial in preventing and reducing the effect of Alzheimer’s. This was all the motivation I needed to get started on a lifestyle that would be endlessly beneficial to my health and well-being. I started Banting that same day, 16 December 2014. I have since lost 26kgs by eating from the green list, with a treat now and then from the orange list.”
“I will give constant support to my Real Group members, even if I have to answer the same questions over and over again, I will never give up on them and their progress.
I want to help my group to understand that Banting means health, with weight loss as a bonus.
It is not only about reclaiming your health, but your life as well. Banting gives you the possibility to reverse the effects that sugar and carbs have had on your body. I want to give people a better quality of life. I want to encourage them to be conscious of what the foods they eat contain. It is about mindful eating. Finally, I want to bring back the pleasure of being creative with your everyday tasks like cooking for the family.”
Ansie knows from her personal experience how greatly Banting can improve your life. She will be able to share the lessons she has learned along her wellness journey with her Real Group members. Ansie aims to instill in her groups that Banting is not a weight loss program, it’s a lifestyle choice. As a CBC, Ansie is endlessly devoted to her Real Group members and their success. As a part of these Real Groups, you could have someone in your corner, who believes in your lifestyle journey when it feels impossible to believe in it for yourself.
