I contacted Justin in early August seeking help regarding my diet and exercise. I knew he’d confirm that it is impossible to out-exercise a bad diet, a fact that was increasingly visible to me, especially after taking initial weekly photographs.
I had become adept at hiding my thickening waist under floaty tops and stretchy comfortable clothing. I was shocked by the reality of my shape, something that the pictures made me confront. From the outset I have been impressed with the structure of the programme.
Insisting that I take weekly photographs and measurements to record my progress both shocked and inspired me; it was a strategy I hadn’t used before. I did become accountable for my own achievements. The level of information and education offered is at a far higher level than I had previously experienced; I sometimes found this overwhelming.
I appreciated the introduction of weekly action points; I’m still working my way through some of the information offered. Justin has been hugely supportive throughout. All my TBT90 questions have been answered with extra help regarding health problems specific to me. I have had a great deal of 1-1 support.
At 45 years old I have taken control of my diet for the first time. The initial process is daunting, the four-day detox was hard but the results were instant. By the end of the third week I had dropped a dress size and the weekly photographs were no longer so hard to look at. I am eating more food than I have ever allowed myself, the recipes are fabulous and I try not to feel disappointed if I slip up.
My skin is glowing, energy levels are high and I do less exercise than ever whilst maintaining good fitness levels. Reading the above, the cynic in me thinks this is all too good to be true.
The support group was invaluable. Being part of a group of people who were doing the same things as me at the same time inspired me to keep going and made me feel better when things seemed impossible.
I was worried about it being 12 weeks long; it seemed an impossible amount of time ‘to be good’. The length of the programme is genius; I no longer think I’m being good; this is now how I live.
A 12-week commitment means it isn’t a quick fix, it guarantees that new habits have been formed for life.
