Are you trying to lose, maintain or gain weight?

I am trying to lose fat and get fit

Why did you start SMF?

My wife and I had seen Gregg’s weight loss and then saw the plan and felt it might be something that would actually work!

Why is your favourite breakfast, lunch and dinner from SMF?

Cinnamon Roll Smoothie, Coronation Chicken, Nisha Parma Fish Curry (Using Chicken)

Why do you enjoy SMF?

It’s great to have the recipes to choose from and the support of the members community without the focus on calories and weigh ins!

Why is SMF different to other programmes out there?

SMF doesn’t require expensive unrealistic ingredients. I can pick and chose from a huge range of recipes which I KNOW have been balanced and checked to ensure they are healthy! I KNOW that this is a lifestyle change and not a DIET. This is a change of eating that I will keep for life. If I make a mistake or have something that is “off plan” I can just forget it and go straight back on plan. I can always be full and never feel hungry and I don’t need to snack. I don’t have to buy supplements or food bars or “magic” powders. It’s completely transparent and Gregg and Libby are there to answer questions and show me what to do if I am unsure. It is a complete package.

What is one thing you have learnt from SMF?

Being good most of the time is enough. If I have something that isn’t on plan I can just go back on plan and I will still lose weight.

What is the best thing about SMF for you?

I don’t need to snack and I am never hungry

Would you recommend SMF to anyone else and why?

I have tried all my life to lose weight and spent all my time feeling hungry and depressed as each time I lost weight I would put it back on with more besides. SMF is a sustainable change to my way of eating! I know that I will continue to eat this way for the rest of my life and the loss of weight is steady and consistent but almost happens without me knowing. Everyone who needs to lose weight should try this!

Do you have any words or advice for someone looking to lose weight or get healthy?

Try SMF. Stick to the meals on the website! Don’t play around with them. Make small changes to start with and work your way into the plan. Maybe start by changing one meal, then two, then three. Then bring some exercise in like walking or something else and build yourself up to do the exercises on the website or jump straight in with the exercise. The truth is even a tiny changes can have results. Just one step at a time! Don’t expect to lose weight in 5 minutes. Don’t get hypnotised by the scales.
