How much weight have you lost and how long did it take?

I lost a total of 24.1kg , or 53.1lbs. It took me 6 months and 1 week.

What prompted your decision to lose weight?

A visit at my GP, when the healthcare assistant weighed me and told me that I have a BMI of 30.8.I wasn't prompted by the surgery, but I made the decision right in this moment.

How did you hear about Nutracheck?

My partner tried to help me to find a way to lose weight sensibly and investigated in the net, while searching a possibility to track exotic food, because I don't eat usual British food and love to cook Indian meals from scratch. He found several providers for calorie counting, but just Nutracheck has got a huge range of all foods, that he knows that I like to eat.

Has your weight stayed fairly consistent over the years, or have you always had to manage it?

I was slightly overweight ,since more than 13years (about 75-80kg), after I stopped WW, but I became obese with moving to England and specially during the lockdown in 2020.I tried to manage it, but failed completely, because I wasn't aware about how important the amount of calories is. I just tried to eat less and was steadily hungry and gave it up again and again.

How easy was it to fit the changes you made into your lifestyle?

Very easy. The first 2 days, I just scanned all products I usually eat and found out, that I consume more than 3000kcal/day without being aware of it, especially food items, that I'm not desperate for, I just ate them, because they were in the kitchen.

What was the most difficult thing?

  1. To not eat out of boredom.
  2. Minimise servings.

Since a child I'm used to eating A LOT, but what I eat feeds several people. I don't eat one biscuit, I eat the whole box, I preferred family size for me alone.

How do you feel now compared to before?

Much lighter ! My steady arthritis problems are minimised and I don't need any painkillers at all, work becomes very easy for me. Staircases are easy to climb, I feel more active and can move easily. My blood pressure is better, and I no longer suffer with depression at all.

Any notable milestones to report?

No, I went through the weight loss process without any failure, I lost every week between 0.2 and 1.3kg.

What 3 tips would you give to anyone who has weight to lose?

  1. Make yourself aware WHY you are overweight and make a plan, how you will manage, before you start.
  2. Decide which food items, you really love and you still want to go on eating and which high calorie foods, you can skip easily, without feeling too sad about it. Remove the items, you don't want to eat any more out of your house and don't buy them again, not even in small amounts.
  3. Cook from scratch, readymade food is always higher in calories, than homemade food. Avoid restaurants and take-aways. If you cook, make it in batches, create a meal and fill it in several little containers in the fridge. The advantage is, the amount is fixed, the calories are fixed ,it's quickly tracked, you can plan easily ahead and you save a lot of work and time, when you are out.
  4. Make long breaks between your meals, don't snack, because it makes you more hungry and unhappy.
  5. Plan meals smartly by adding salad and veggies to your meals.
  6. Don't treat yourself with food. Celebrate your success, even it is a small one with a non-food article, as a new handbag, clothes for your new size or cosmetics.
