Latest Banting Diet success stories from Real Meal Revolution members
Since November 2016, we have been guiding all of the new Real Meal Revolution members through a totally new paradigm of Banting made up of four phases:
Here are a few of the things they had to say:
From Bronwyn Minnie, North West Province, South Africa
“I took the leap and pulled my mother and two daughters with me… Except for the basics of the tools and meal plans, you get support, guidance, and knowledge that is not out there...
I will recommend everyone I know to join, it is truly worth it if you are serious about changing your life”
From Maxine, Launceston, Australia
“I am almost 2 weeks into Restoration (another 4 to go) and I am feeling great. Went… for a BP check and my… readings have dropped… since I started the program.
My GP is thinking that if I keep going the way I am that I will be able to come off the medication really soon which is fantastic.
I have “played” around with LCHF for a couple of years now… but this Banting 2.0 has really hit the right mark for me. The idea of Observation and then Restoration before Transformation is fantastic. Thank you for the plans and the emails that help keep me on track.”
Aneesha Govil, Sydney, Australia
"Thank you so much for this fantastic meal plan. I now have a very clear idea of how to plan the meals. Thank you so so much! You're amazingly talented. I haven't been able to find any nutritionists who can cater to my strict dietary needs, you are truly wonderful."
Michael Markoulides, UK
“Halfway through week 3 of Restoration and weighed myself today!! I dropped 5.6 kg's so far I can't tell you how elated I am. By this time next week if I stick to the plan and my daily walking target I could be in double digits instead of triple digits , that is such a big deal to me!”
Shari Kuntz, Kansas, United States
“I love this program EVEN MORE! …I am not craving and feel full for a long time. I'm in week 2 [of Restoration] and I have to say Jonno's recipes are fantastic. …I'm down 4 pounds.”
“I'm doing soo well, I've lost 3kg for the past 3 weeks [in Restoration] and 7cm on my waist line.”
Fiona Christelis, Dubai
“I am walking the Camino in Spain. …I was overwhelmed with all the bread and pastries available. Three weeks in I am glad to say I am striving to make good choices… Thank you team for the amazing ground work which has allowed me to dig deep and examine my choices. I endeavour every day to have an amazing Camino spiritually and physically. Thanks team.”
Monique Pretorius, Rustenburg, South Africa (Certified Banting Coach client)
“Well I have always struggled with my weight, mainly because I love eating sweets and cake and bread. And I have always overdone it when it comes to eating those things because if it’s delicious then I am going to keep on eating. Which is very bad, I know.
So in December I got engaged and my sister took a video of how he proposed. When I watched the video afterwards I was shocked to see how bad I looked. I know I saw myself in the mirror every day but for some reason the video was more intense. So just there and then I thought that enough is enough. I am a young woman and I can help it I am not going to look like a hippo. I am also very short so if I gain a small amount of weight it looks like a lot that I gained.
So I told myself that I need to do something and I saw that Chardi was looking so beautiful with her Banting that she did, I thought that it would not hurt to try it.
I know that if I was not so determined to lose weight, I would not have lasted a week. But surprisingly I was very strict on myself and all the yummy food around me did not bother me anymore. Obviously I just wanted to take a small bite when I saw something that I want to eat but I kept my mind in place and just ignored it.
At the time that I started with the Banting, I weighed 70.3 Kg. Yes, throughout my journey I have cheated and did take bites of this and that. Luckily that did not affect me to gain any weight. It only made me not lose any.
My goal is to weigh 55 Kg. After 13 weeks of strict Banting (and a little cheating) I have lost a total of 11.6 Kg. So I am almost there.”
