I previously found it difficult to stick to a maintainable strategy. Whenever I have attempted to 'lose weight' or 'get fit' in the past, it has generally been on the principle of increased exercise, plus less eating. I was looking for a program, or an approach, with more longevity and providing a healthier approach to my overall diet.
The best parts of the course for me were that it provides a simple approach / 'rules' to constructing a healthy meal. It focuses on education, rather than handing you a menu plan. This combined with the support from Glyn and the community was fantastic and helped me to succeed.
I was eating pretty healthily (home cooked meals, mostly), and in the past have used diets like Keto - however, I was looking for something that focused more on my overall health, at the same time as losing fat. Something that would be sustainable and not sacrifice good nutrition for a low calorie intake.
From completing the programme, I am much more informed about nutritional choices. I travel a lot for work, which makes a degree of eating out a necessity. This enabled me to make good choices when many variables are outside of my direct control and instead of treating restaurants like 'free cheats', I made menu choices consistent with my goals that week.
Whilst exercise is clearly a component of a healthy lifestyle, I found Glyn's approach to implementing the right amount of exercise informed and complimentary to the nutritional program.
If you've tried dieting before - perhaps following a prescriptive program - try this; it focuses on educating you to make good choices, and that education lasts long after the direct support of the program has ended.
Now, a month after the program has concluded - I continue to make progress towards my goals and continue to be informed by / make decisions because of the Food The Facts program.
