Are you trying to lose, maintain or gain weight?

I'm trying to lose a little more and then work of muscle growth!

Why did you start SMF?

I started SMF because I had reached the heaviest weight I have ever been. I felt tired, sluggish, my back hurt and with a new baby on the way I was adamant not to be that dad who can't play with their child due to being overweight. Plus I couldn't bring myself to buy any more clothes in a larger size!

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

My favourite breakfast is a smoothie, any smoothie. I must admit I’m not a breakfast guy so it doesn’t excite me like others. My favourite lunch has to be the tuna lettuce cups. They’re just so easy and convenient to make, especially to take to work for lunch! Oh and they taste great! My favourite dinner is Nisha Parma’s fish curry however, I’m not a fish person so I have chicken instead! It’s just like having a takeaway and just tastes incredible!

Why do you enjoy SMF?

SMF is just so inclusive of everyone from all different walks of life, shapes and sizes! There’s such a beautiful community of people eager to lose weight and offer advise and support to anyone who needs it. On a SMF weight loss journey, you’re not on your own!

Why is SMF different to other programmes out there?

SMF teaches you about food. It’s not a diet, it’s a life style change. Understanding food, what’s good and what’s not and learning how to balance it is the key to success. Remember, you can’t exercise your way out of a bad diet!

What is one thing you have learnt from SMF?

SMF has taught me to understand food and nutrition. It’s taught me self control and discipline but most of all, it’s taught me how to be me again.

What is the best thing about SMF for you?

The best thing about show me fit has to be the support. Not only from the online community but also from Gregg, Libby and the rest of the SMF team. Try and find another similar programe with so much love and support, I dare you.

Would you recommend SMF to anyone else and why?

Of course and I already have! If you’re serious about changing for a better future then honestly look no further.

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

Just do it. Everyone has to start somewhere, yes it’s tough changing your mindset and mentality. Yes it’s tough exercising in the beginning but once you’re over those hurdles, you’ll never look back. Trust me.

Any other comments...

Yeah Libby rules, Gregg drools.
