Over the past few months, Hello Doctor has been following Tim Noakes and the Real Meal Revolution closely. So closely in fact, that our very own CEO, Andy Milne, has been on the specialised eating plan for over 2 months now – with interesting results. If you want to find out how he’s been doing, you can catch up on everything on the Hello Doctor blog.
A short while ago, we received an email from one of our Facebook fans, Cherise Brady, who wanted to share her story and experience on the Tim Noakes eating plan too. She’s had some great results, and it just goes to show that dedication can go a long way!
Here’s her story:
“I’ve had hypothyroidism for 9 years, and am currently taking tertroxin and euthyrox. Although I’ve finally stopped gaining weight, I’ve battled over the years to lose it and keep it off for good. I’ve tried all sorts of meal plans and diets, but every time I’ve lost weight, I just put it back on again.
My husband and I started “Banting” (the “Tim Noakes Diet”) about 4 weeks ago, and since then I’m very proud to say that I’ve lost 5kgs already in total. It’s also the most I have eaten on an “diet/eating plan”, so I’m really enjoying the fact that I don’t feel hungry all the time. I must admit, it feels strange to lose weight like this, but I’m loving the new lifestyle change!
I’ve also noticed that as amateur joggers, my husband and I are getting fitter and running faster. In the past, I could never run more than 5km, but since we started Banting, we’re running 10km at a time. Sure, it doesn’t sound like much, but it’s a huge difference to a “plodder” like me. I’ve also found that the weight has stayed off and my skin has cleared up.
The overall effects of the eating plan have been great, and I’m looking forward to reading about it more on Hello Doctor.”
