Are you trying to lose, maintain or gain weight?

Lose weight

Why did you start SMF?

Had tried every diet out there, lost weight before but nothing was sustainable and the weight always came back on and more. Hated the way I looked and felt. I was impressed with what Gregg had achieved with his weight loss journey and thought why not give it a try.

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

Breakfast I love the turkey mince, peppers and egg as I’m a sucker for a savoury dish, if I’m craving something sweet my go to is the oat pancakes , lunch is the lunch box friendly Chicken pittas and Dinner after 8 months I’m still loving the fish curry and is a family favourite, so appears on the weekly meal plan at least once.

Why do you enjoy SMF?

Value for money It can’t be beat, the recipe ideas are easy to follow and so filling that you don’t feel your being deprived of anything. The Facebook group which has created a fantastic friendly community full of support and encouragement which always keeps you motivated. The personal feel the plan gives through the live cooking and Gregg and Libby’s live chats.

Why is SMF different to other programmes out there?

The support is unbelievable from Gregg and Libby, Kat the nutritionist and Danny the Personal trainer always willing to answer questions and keep you on track.

What is one thing you have learnt from SMF?

Being good most of the time is good enough

What is the best thing about SMF for you?

8 months in and I’m still 100% committed and loving it. Have never ever found a weight loss plan as good as this which has kept me motivated throughout.

Would you recommend SMF to anyone else and why?

Yes for all the reasons above.

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

Join show me fit trust in the plan and you will achieve your goals and you won’t regret it
